The youngest winner of the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels for piano (2021) is named Jonathan Fournel. He combines dazzling technique and fiery playing with exquisite balance. With his orchestral palette of timbres and his transparent, almost fragile playing, he manages to unlock the smallest details of the music. But above all, he tells a story. After all, he won the world's most famous competition not with muscle but with poetry.

At Oranjewoud Festival one can enjoy his interpretations of Mozart's fourteenth piano sonata, Franck's Prélude, Fugue et Variation which he dedicated to Saint-Saëns and Brahms' magisterial first piano sonata.



Mozart - Sonata No. 14 in b minor, KV 457

Franck - Prélude, Fugue et Variation

Brahms - Sonata no. 1, opus 1
