In Greek, the word signifies the reshaping (ana) of a form or image (Morfe). Since the Renaissance, artists have reshaped and experimented with perspectives on images. However, such reshaping can also occur in music, and this idea constitutes the concept of this album. The starting point of this album are compositions by Chopin (I) and Ravel (II), which are subsequently transformed into contemporary idiom and “perspective”, in the Chopiniata by Clément Doucet (I/1) or Anamorfosi by Salvatore Sciarrino (II/1).
Yannick Van de Velde was a semi-finalist of the Queen Elisabeth Competition in 2013 and was awarded the additional prize Walckiers-Carbonnelle.
