22 October, 2011 is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Franz Liszt (1811-1886), the brilliant virtuoso pianist, genius composer, renowned educator and music critic, one of the brightest stars of the musical Olympus of the 19th century. As a daring innovator, Liszt stirred up a revolution in both the art of piano playing and composing. Being a classic of the Hungarian national music who imbibed cultural tradition of other countries, Liszt exerted influence upon on the course of European music in general. "If not for Liszt, the fate of new music would have been different," wrote music critic Vladimir Stasov. The piano remained Liszt's favourite instrument throughout his artistic life. His innovative approach to the instrument showed up in his orchestral and symphonic interpretation. He created a multitude of virtuosic transcriptions of his own works and ones composed by others authors such as operatic numbers and songs by Schumann, symphonies by Beethoven. "In the span of its seven octaves, [the piano] embraces the range of a whole orchestra, and the ten fingers of a single man suffice to render the harmonies produced created by the concurrence of a hundred musicians," wrote Liszt. In the field of symphonic music, the composer created a whole new genre - single movement symphonic poem (Tasso, Les préludes, Orpheus, Prometheus and others). This release dedicated to the 200th anniversary of Liszt's birth includes compositions by Franz Liszt performed by some of the best musicians such as Alexander Slobodyanik (his recording of a Hungarian Rhapsody and Piano Sonata in B minor brought him a Franz Liszt award in Hungary, in 1976), Gennady Rozhdestvensky, Vladimir Ashkenazi, Gleb Akselrod, Mark Ermler, Lazar Berman, Vladimir Ovchinnikov and Kirill Kondrashin.

CD1 - András Schiff, piano
CD2 - A. Schiff, piano / Moscow Radio Symphony Orchestra - D. Kitayenko

Firma Melodiya presents never-before-released recordings of András Schiff made at the V Tchaikovsky International Competition in 1974.

One of the most prominent pianists of modern times, András Schiff is nevertheless does not belong to the so-called competition format. The musician who earned the pedestal of philosopher pianist, “a representative of intellectual musical tradition in its high apprehension,” has never had virtuosity, sonic lustre and visual artistry in his sphere of interests.

However, the live recordings of the then 21-year-old Hungarian are of unquestionable interest. Soviet music critic Leonid Gakkel described his impressions of Schiff’s performance in the following way: “From his very first note at the competition Schiff struck me with the vigour of his performance, and that was vigour of the highest festivity… What a touch on the piano, what a charge of energy, what burning fingers! Ultimate activity of a creating spirit at each moment of playing…”

At the competition, Schiff played piano works by Rachmaninoff, Liszt, Prokofiev and Shostakovich, variation cycles and concertos by Tchaikovsky and Brahms. In the opinion of Yevgeny Malinin, a competent judge and professor of the Moscow Conservatory, Schiff “read music without a drop of wilfulness: he lived in and with it.” The panel gave him only the fourth prize (“incomplete correspondence” with general virtuosity and competition standards had an impact). However, it wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that it was the Tchaikovsky Competition that brought the first significant success and international repute to the outstanding pianist.

Melodiya presents a 4 CD set of recordings by pianist Grigory Sokolov. One of the best contemporary representatives of the St. Petersburg piano school, Sokolov is now well known in Russia and beyond. He tours around the globe delighting the audiences of the old and new worlds. Sokolov is a master of now rare “intellectual” pianism. However, unlike the great piano intellectual of the 20th century Glenn Gould, Sokolov prefers live concerts to studio work. “The biggest chasm is the one between a microphone and an individual,” the musician believes.

Box set
The recordings were made in 1946 to 1959.

Firma Melodiya presents a set of rare recordings by Emil Gilels.

“The world knows many talented pianists and a few great masters who tower above them all. Emil Gilels is one of them.”

“The titans of piano like Gilels are borne once in a century.” Those were the kind of reviews that accompanied Gilels throughout his pianistic career beginning with his victory at the all-union competition in 1933 in Moscow. However, this set will open new sides to Gilels’s repertoire even to those who is well acquainted with his recordings.

We will hear Emil Gilels as an ensemble musician.

The titan of piano, who roused the audiences and orchestras, was able to turn into a fine chamber musician, a wonderful ensemble partner as though he dissolved his brightest individuality in a piece he performed.

The more so because Gilels’s partners were truly brilliant soloists such as Yakov Flier and Yakov Zak (piano), Elizaveta Gilels (violin), musicians from the Beethoven Quartet Dmitri Tsyganov (violin), Vadim Borisovsky (viola) and Sergei Shirinsky (cello).

The set features compositions from various periods. Along with well-know piano and chamber ensembles, it includes recordings of rarely performed works by Mozart arranged by Busoni, Saint-Saëns and Cui. But the previously unreleased recordings by Emil Gilels deserve a special mention. They are Suite No. 2 for piano by Rachmaninoff, Rondo four hands by Chopin, Concerto pathétique by Liszt, a suite for two pianos by Leonid Nikolayev and a piano trio by Andrei Babayev.
