Arthur Rubinstein (piano) Plays Frederic Chopin (Live)

In 2010 the world celebrates the 200th anniversary of the Polish composer of genius Frйdйric Chopin (1810-1849). This romantic composer was a genuine poet of grand piano. He composed neither symphonies nor operas - his whole creative life was dedicated to piano works. Chopin considered this instrument ideal for expressing feelings and ideas; his nocturnes, waltzes, ballads, mazurkas, polonaises, etudes and scherzos are the recognized masterpieces of piano art.

“To understand Chopin one must know that the composer was a pupil of Bach and Mozart, a pupil of accuracy and harmony. This is a noble genius. Chopin’s Rubato originates from Italian singing: the composer regularly visited the Italian opera studying the singers’ art. Take into account the singer’s breath, expressiveness of the arias and recitatives, singing for the good of the soul - and there appears the proper degree of freedom, not imposed one but following from the sense of melody…” - said one of the best interpreters of Chopin’s music, legendary Polish pianist Arthur Rubinstein. It was performance of Chopin’s works that brought him fame and is still considered to be a world standard.

“There’s hardly another composer who would take a more solitary place in the family of Russian musicians” wrote Medtner’s contemporary and music critic Vyacheslav Karatygin.

Medtner was born to a family of intellectuals of German descent who had long before settled in Russia. Even after three decades of emigration, he remained an essentially Russian musician till the end of his days. If Medtner’s music could not boast a great number of followers, it irrepressibly attracted such deep and subtle, though very different, artists as Rachmaninov and Myaskovsky.

Medtner’s music organically combined traditions of German and Russian music. Along with Rachmaninov and Scriabin, Medtner was an outstanding interpreter of his own works and one of those who started a new era of Russian piano music.

According to the prominent musician, pianist and thinker Heinrich Neuhaus, Medtner as a pianist “won himself an unfading glory… I couldn’t help feeling that it wasn’t just a marvelous pianist playing but a great musician, excellent composer, that his thought and ear had a total control of his fingers and his phenomenal virtuosity, and that it was an inspired pianism”.

This second volume of the anthology includes three Medtner’s piano concertos recorded in the 1940s in London (the second and third ones were conducted by Issay Dobrowen, one of the renowned representatives of Russian musical emigration). The set also features one of the most original of the composer’s works - Sonata-Ballade, Op.27.

Piano Concerto No. 1 in C minor, Op. 33
Philharmonia Orchestra, George Weldon
Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 50

James Rhodes (piano)

With childhood abuse, drug addiction and suicide attempts behind him, James is not your typical concert pianist but with his passion and rock-star aura, he is bringing new audiences to classical piano. In 'Piano Man', James plays the music of his favourite composers, including Bach, Beethoven and Chopin, many of whom had, like James, troubled lives. In this highly personal collection, James explains how they’ve given him solace in his darkest moments and why we should all be listening. With stunning solo piano performances and witty insight into these lives 'Piano Man' is an exciting and radical new approach.
