Perianes records exclusively for harmonia mundi. His diverse has earned acclaim from press and public alike. His Grieg Piano Concerto and a selection of Lyric Pieces, was widely praised by the critics and described as “a new benchmark” by Classica, which awarded it a ‘Choc’; it was also Editor’s Choice in Gramophone and Maestro in Pianiste magazine. This season, Perianes returns to the studio to record Schubert’s Sonata in B flat major, D.960 and Sonata in A major D.664 as well as making a recording of Bartók’s Piano Concerto No.3 with the Münchner Philharmoniker and Pablo Heras-Casado.
