 Update me on new releases by Cooper

Imogen Cooper (b1949)

Cooper studied the piano with Kathleen Long and at the age of twelve was sent to the Paris Conservatoire to continue her studies with Jacques Février and Yvonne Lefébure. She then went to Vienna to study with Alfred Brendel, Jörg Demus and Paul Badura-Skoda and won the Mozart Memorial Prize in 1969. Cooper has had an international career performing with many of the world’s great orchestras.

Although her repertoire is fairly broad, Cooper has a reputation as a Schubert specialist. She also plays and has commissioned some twentieth-century works including one by Thomas Adès that she premièred at the Cheltenham Festival in 1996. In 1984 Cooper played a series of Schubert’s late piano works at the Wigmore Hall in London. She had received guidance from Clifford Curzon in these works and was approached by the Dutch record company Ottavo who wanted to record her Schubert interpretations. When asked about these recordings of Schubert she said, ‘Of course, my enthusiasm has been fed by listening and absorbing performances by Fischer, Schnabel, Curzon and Brendel, but I think I have grown into my own way of performing him.’
