Yes, it’s that good."

Selim Palmgren, a student of Busoni, was one of the leading Nordic composers during the first decades of the 20th century. His wide-ranging music for piano was performed and recorded by some of the greatest artists of the day. This third volume in the first complete cycle of Palmgren’s piano music on disc includes a varied cross-section of works written over a 50-year period. It includes the youthful Lyriskt intermezzo, Op. 8, romantic miniatures of great charm – as well as one of his greatest achievements, the atmospheric suite Kevät (‘Spring’), in which impressionist elements fuse with rich Finnish folk melody.

The title of “The Decalogue” has a touch of the grandiose: it means “The Ten Commandments.” Yet this score, composed by Sufjan Stevens for a dance work choreographed by Justin Peck that premiered with the New York City Ballet in May of 2017, is quiet and experimental. Stevens’s piano score, as played and recorded by Timo Andres, sounds like etudes in the Romantic-modernist tradition, as if prompted by Debussy. With “The Decalogue,” releasing digitally and on deluxe edition vinyl on October 18, 2019 and standard edition and CD on December 6, 2019, Sufjan is making—gently, without ostentation—new departures.

Genre: Classical | Label: Oehms Classics

The solo piano music of Béla Bartók is sometimes compared to that of Schoenberg, but Bartók's works are more emotionally accessible to listeners, particularly when they are played as Andreas Bach does on this album. While a great importance is placed on the percussiveness of Bartók's music, Bach instead focuses on the harmonies and the temperaments of these works. He does not ignore those more primitive aspects of the music, but rather than being sharply aggressive, Bach uses more of a forceful follow-through to control the sound.

A distanza di tredici anni dalla registrazione della Sinfonia n. 9, album di debutto su Decca per Maurizio Baglini, il pianista toscano ritorna ad affrontare Beethoven trascritto da Liszt con una nuova proposta: la Sinfonia n. 6 op. 68 “Pastorale”. Un progetto che presenta all'ascoltatore alcuni legami indissolubili: la figura centrale di Beethoven nella storia universale, l'inclusione di culture esotiche – quella turca, nello specifico – nell'evoluzione sociologica europea, l'intervento fondamentale di Franz Liszt nella valorizzazione della musica di Beethoven nel secondo Ottocento. Beethoven ebbe un rapporto fortissimo con la società, con la politica e con la natura, percepita come trasfigurazione dell'esistenza terrena e ultraterrena: un rapporto spirituale, oltre che concreto e quotidianamente alimentato da un desiderio di frequentazione dell'ambiente a lui circostante. Questo sentimento che lega la natura con l’esistenza stessa, la vita, sono tutti presenti nella “Pastorale” come anche nei brani di Liszt che completano l’album: dal carattere bucolico dell’Allegro Pastorale e della Pastorale n. 3 al senso di caducità dell’esistenza della Totentanz.

Clifford Curzon
Enfant prodige du piano, Clifford Curzon (né Siegenberg, 1907-1982) enseigne très tôt à la Royal Academy of Music de Londres après en avoir été l'élève. Médaille d'or du concours MacFarren à 17 ans en 1924, il se perfectionne auprès d'Arthur Schnabel qu'il ne tarde pas à concurrencer, de Wanda Landowska et de Nadia Boulanger dont il se fait l'interprète. Si ce spécialiste de Mozart, Schubert, Schumann et Dvorak est resté fidèle à la maison Decca pendant toute sa vie, il s'est souvent opposé à la publication d'enregistrements qu'il ne jugeait pas satisfaisants. Son héritage n'en est pas moins considérable comme en témoigne le coffret de 23 CD édité pour le trentième anniversaire de sa disparition en 2012 (The Complete Recordings). Anobli en 1977, Médaille d'or de la Royal Philharmonic Society en 1980, Sir Clifford Curzon demeure l'un des plus grands, si ce n'est le plus grand, pianistes du Royaume-Uni. Au chapitre de ses réussites figurent les Impromptus de Schubert (1941), le Concerto n°1 (1962) et la Sonate n°2 de Brahms et les Concertos n°20 à 27 de Mozart (1967-1970).

Prokofiev arranged excerpts from his ballet Cinderella for solo piano as three separate suites: the Three Pieces Op. 95, Ten Pieces Op. 97, and Six Pieces Op. 102. Here Olli Mustonen fashions his own extended suite that starts with Op. 95 intact, continues with Op. 97 reordered minus one piece, and concludes with three of the Op. 102 selections. In the main, Mustonen’s amazingly worked-out pianism toes the fine line between brilliant individuality and irritating self-absorption. In Op. 97, for instance, the pianist brings remarkable crispness and élan to the frolicking triplet figurations throughout Fairy Spring and the Grasshoppers and Dragon Flies, and rubs our noses in the Autumn Fairy’s dissonant accents. At times, however, interpretive tics transform the music’s rhythmic profile and thematic resourcefulness into mannered mush. The Op. 95 Pavane is a case in point.

Born in 1953, Yoshihiro Kanno studied at the Tokyo University of Fine Arts and Music and is currently a professor at Waseda University's Department of Intermedia Arts and Science. In his compositions he bases himself on three idioms: Western instrumental music, Japanese traditional instruments, and computer music. Combining these various elements freely, he creates scores for Japanese instruments and computer as well as for Western and Japanese instruments, such as the recent work Himiko – Memories of the Sun Goddess which fuses Western classical music and Japanese traditional music with Kabuki and Japanese classical dance. The pianist Noriko Ogawa, acclaimed for a wide-ranging discography comprising music by composers from Mozart and Debussy to Takemitsu and Graham Fitkin, is a champion of Kanno's music and has commissioned three of the works on the present disc, the so-called 'Particle of Piano' series. In each work, the pianist is required also to create sounds on a Japanese instrument, respectively a small iron wind chime, a pair of metal chopsticks made of the same steel as the fabled samurai swords, and a set of metal bells used in Kabuki performances. All three of these possess particular acoustical traits which affect how their sounds interact with that of the piano.

This publication aims to be the first of two volumes, the second of which will contain the other two sonatas. Believe me, this project has not been driven by the wish to add yet another complete recording of complete works to the catalogue. What it has been driven by is a real desire to redress the balance and to ensure Weber's compositions receive the attention they so richly deserve.

‘Piano Icons For The 21st Century’ is an exceptionally performed collection of contemporary piano works by Pärt, Janáček, Sculthorpe and Mompou, plus the world premiere recording of John Tavener's Ypakoë. Piano Icons For The 21st Century was widely acclaimed upon its release and named a Gramophone ‘Critics' Choice': 'my disc of 2000 is without hesitation Elena Riu's extraordinarily fine CD.' John Tavener was inspired to write his first major solo work for piano in over twenty years after hearing Elena play. She premiered Ypakoë, a series of meditations on the death of Jesus, at the City of London Festival. The programme also includes Janacek's In The Mist, an intensely personal and darkly hued cycle, plus an intriguing collection of miniatures by three composers who, in her view, are on a similar wavelength: Peter Sculthorpe, the late Catalan composer Federico Mompou, and Arvo Pärt.
