The Italian pianist has continued on the well-worn path of international stages. She does so, however, on her own terms, by introducing the public to works that are dear to the artist, such as those of Ravel, including Miroirs, which he finished in 1906, often compared to Impressionism for the common themes and lustrous colours; and those of Schumann, including The Symphonic Studies, composed in 1834 by the musician at the height of his art, demonstrating his passion for new possibilities in technique for piano and offering Beatrice Rana the opportunity to showcase her remarkable virtuosity.
