Musikfestival in Aying


From April 14th – 16th Sophie Pacini, the Ayinger “Gmoa Kultur”, die municipality of Aying and the Brauerei Aying welcome to the first edition of the newly founded musical festival “NUANCEN”. The long held idea of Sophie Pacini ist to invite internationally acclaimed artists to perform in Aying and to create by this an opportunity to experience highly sophisticated music and culture on the outside of big cities and their well known concert places. Another very important focus of the festival will be to give also young musicians a platform to meet the artists and work with them during master classes.

“PUZZLE” receives “SUPERSONIC AWARD”

Sophie Pacini’s new album “PUZZLE” wins “SUPERSONIC AWARD” of Pizzicato Magazine Luxembourg

On January 13th Sophie Pacini’s new Album “PUZZLE” with works by Chopin and Skrjabin was released.

Remy Franck awarded her new album immediately with the high acclaimed “Supersonic Award” and says in his review:

“Sophie Pacini begins her Chopin program with a highly dramatic First Ballade. She plays with a naturalness and a coherence that ballad specialist Horowitz (for all the outstanding quality of his playing) never actually achieved, neither in 1947 nor in 1982 and certainly not in his rather mannered recording of 1968. Pacini’s interpretation is of one piece, it flows from beginning to end and yet misses nothing that is essential, reaches all moments of expression and all contrasts. In this way and only in this way, with this original and personal emotionality, this Ballade achieves a maximally compelling power and becomes that passionate narrative whose content Chopin only captured musically, allowing a deep glimpse into his soul. (…) “

Sophie Pacini and Charles Adriaenssen for OUTHERE


Sophie Pacini just signed a long term exclusive contract with the major label OUTHERE.

With OUTHERE Sophie found a label that will support her and help her to realize her ideas of re- concept the classical music performances by transforming it into an “moment for yourself” and taking the relevance of classical music in the daily life as her main lead. Her new Album “Puzzle” will be released on January 13th 2023 with works by Chopin and Skrjabin. It will be her probably most intimate concept album and gives a summary of works that restrained and formed her introspection and are a permanent font of courage and inspiration in her daily life.

Ernsthaft, jeden Abend?

Interview für VAN-Magazin mit der Autorin Hannah Schmidt

2020 ist kaputt. Schon jetzt. Die Bayreuther Festspiele wurden abgesagt und das große Mahlerfestival in Amsterdam, sowieso Tausende große und kleine Konzerte und etliche Opernvorstellungen, das große Beethovenjahr ist bisher ein Jahr ohne Musik. Viele Musiker*innen sitzen in ihren Wohnungen und bangen um ihre Existenz, und sehr viele, ob sie nun existenziell getroffen sind oder nicht, versuchen sich irgendwie anders zu beschäftigen. Die Pianistin Sophie Pacini verlässt ihr Haus auch nur in Ausnahmefällen und verbringt deshalb viel Zeit an ihrem Privatflügel, in ihrer »Werkstatt«, wie sie sie nennt. Übt, reflektiert, übt. Das Musiker*innensein geht ja weiter. In der Community ist ein gewisser Trotz spürbar, der Wunsch, einfach so gut es geht so weiterzumachen wie bisher – und das äußert sich vor allem in überall auftauchenden Streaming-Videos in Sozialen Netzwerken. Tun wir uns damit einen Gefallen?
