The Art of Chopin [electronic resource]

Loading...
As a meditation on the life and influence of Frédéric Chopin (1810-49) that was produced to commemorate the great Polish composer's 200th birthday, this unique program falls into two distinct halves. It begins with a traditional hour-long documentary by Gérald Caillat that studies the musical scribe's life and work; then it segues into the second half - a series of contemporary and vintage performances by world-renowned artists, who interpret excerpts from some of Chopin's most beloved compositions. These luminaries include Krystian Zimerman, Artur Rubinstein, Evgeny Kissin and Martha Argerich. Classical historian Garrick Ohlsson also turns up to reflect and pontificate on Chopin's genius. As an added bonus, this release features an August 2009 concert film where Ohlsson performs Cho [...]

András Schiff Plays Bach [electronic resource]

Loading...
"The French Suites, BWV 812--817, are six suites which Johann Sebastian Bach wrote for the clavier (harpsichord or clavichord) between the years of 1722 and 1725. The suites were later given the name 'French' (first recorded usage by Friedrich Wilhelm Marpurg in 1762) as a means of contrast with the English Suites (whose title is likewise a later appellation). The name was popularised by Bach's biographer Johann Nikolaus Forkel, who wrote in his 1802 biography of Bach, "One usually calls them French Suites because they are written in the French manner." This claim, however, is inaccurate: like Bach's other suites, they follow a largely Italian convention. There is no surviving definitive manuscript of these suites, and ornamentation varies both in type and in degree across manuscrip [...]

Homage to Robert Schumann [electronic resource]: Live From the Frauenkirche Dresden

Loading...
Between 1844 and 1859 Robert Schumann lived in Dresden where he composed a third of his complete works. This concert marks the 200th anniversary of Robert Schumann's birth and offers a welcome opportunity for Daniel Harding and the Staatskapelle Dresden to introduce three of the most impressive but now too rarely performed works from his Dresden period (Overture to Genoveva, Requiem für Mignon and Nachtlied). Particular highlights - which will come as a surprise even to connoisseurs of his works - are a first performance and a world premiere of rediscovered and reconstructed symphonic movements dating from the composer's legendary "symphony year" of 1841. Moreover, Rhenish Symphony, composed by Schumann after leaving Dresden and widely influenced by his impressions of the Cologne Cat [...]

Marilyn Nonken on Triadic Memories [electronic resource]

Loading...
Triadic Memories is perhaps more famous for its extraordinary length than for its fascinating content or its sublime psychological impact. An intimate study of pitch and sonority that unfolds gradually and kaleidoscopically over a long duration, the piece is continually regenerative, and its spare material yields an astonishing variety of gestures and combinations. But a subtler aspect of this work is the underlying tension between what happens in the moment and what takes shape on a larger time scale. One is constantly pulled back and forth, from an acute awareness of small, localized changes, to the perception of vast, static cycles; through this shifting of attention, the listener may feel that time is elastic and surprisingly subjective. Without a specified tempo, Triadic Memorie [...]

Burkhard Schliessmann Plays Godowsky, Liszt, and Chopin [electronic resource]

Loading...
Franz Liszt is clearly the maestro of piano transcription. Because of him it has been accepted as an art form in its own right. Schliessmann shows this in his performance of Liszt's adaptations, including two of the most popular Schubert songs, Forelle and Erlkönig. He also rediscovers Godowsky's genius and knows how to interpret perfectly the challenging Symphonic Metamorphoses on waltzes and themes by Johann Strauss.
