The winner of numerous international competitions, the brilliant young accordion player Ksenija Sidorova here presents her debut recording; a recital for solo classical accordion.
A particularly accomplished artist, Ksenija has collaborated with many leading musicians (including the Belcea Quartet, and Valergy Gergiev with the CBSO), and won numerous awards and accolades.
“one of the real finds of this series” The Times
Still an underexploited resource in western classical music, the accordion has had a fast-increasing amount of music written for it since the mid-20th Century. Here, Ksenija Sidrova brings a varied recital featuring some of the best contemporary compositions for the classical accordion, alongside transcriptions of well-known works.
No composer has been transcribed more often than Bach; but the accordion - heard here in Bach’s Overture in the French Style - brings an advantage that few other instruments can offer; it’s notes do not die away as soon as they are sounded. This allows an array of colouristic possibilities, denied to other musicians.
Amongst the contemporary works here, Arne Nordheim’s Flashing, written in 1985 for solo accordion, has become a classic of the accordion repertoire. Nordheim’s music has a real sense of physicality, of movement and change on a large scale. In contrast, Luciani Berio’s Sequenza XIII opens with a compressed melody which is gradually developed amid splashes of complex harmony and virtuoso filigree.
Yuji Takahashu’s Like a Water-Buffalo is preceded on this disc by the poem that inspired it. Well-known in Takahashi’s native Japan, it is a moving, heartfelt piece, strongly transmitting the sounds of freedom.
This recital CD also features a ʻbonus track’ - Astor Piazzolla’s “Asleep”, the first of the composer’s Five Tango Sensations, performed by Ksenija Sidorova with the exuberant young Sacconi Quartet.
“an amazingly accomplished artist” Classical Source
Composers featured in this stunning recital include: Nordheim, Berio, Schnittke, Takahashi, Piazzolla, Scarlatti, Bach and Mozart.

Anthology of Piano Music by Russian and Soviet Composers
Part 2 Disc 7: From 1991 to Now

“Russian Piano Music Today: Teachers and Pupils”. This could be an apt title of the next, seventh, volume of the Anthology of 20th Century Russian Piano Music realized by Firma Melodiya jointly with the Tikhon Khrennikov Foundation and the National Foundation of Rightholders Support. The featured compositions reflect the spectrum of piano music in Russia for the last 20 years.

Tolib Shahidi’s works are arguably the brightest ones on the seventh disc. A son of the founder of Tajik professional music Ziyodullo Shahidi and a graduate of Aram Khachaturian’s class at the Moscow Conservatory, Tolib Shahidi has successfully synthesized national cultural features of Tajikistan with the achievements of Russian and European music. His works are now performed in many countries of the world.

Kirill Volkov, Tatiana Chudova and Yuri Vorontsov are representatives of the academic tradition of Russian music. Pupils of the outstanding masters Aram Khachaturian, Tikhon Khrennikov and Evgeny Golubev, they also combine their creative and teaching careers. While Vorontsov’s piece Sirius evokes cosmic associations, the sonatas by Chudova and Volkov are inspired with nature of Russian north.

Music of the new generation of composers is represented with the works by Alexei Sysoyev and Alexei Sergunin. Sysoyev, who began his career as a jazz musician, graduated from the Moscow Conservatory under Tatiana Chudova. Sergunin is also a Moscow Conservatory graduate who studied piano under Ksenia Knorre and composition under Alexander Tchaikovsky. Today, both of the young musicians take part in the most topical events of Russian music life.

Contemporary piano music is performed by young pianists, worthy representatives of the Russian performing school such as Ekaterina Mechetina, Irina Bogdanova, Lukas Geniušas, Nikita Mndoyants, Yuri Favorin and Fyodor Amirov. The last three are also professional composers who give preference to contemporary music in their programmes.

Chudova:
Sonata (1966) -N. Mnydoyants (piano)

Sergunin:
Origami -L. Geniusas (piano)

Shakhidi:
Two pieces - E. Mechetina (piano)

Sysoyev:
Antiphases -Y. Favorin (piano)

Sonata No. 5 - dedicated to pilgrims, travellers and wanderers of Russian North - I. Bogdanova (piano)

Nazareth was a Brazilian composer who explored the fusion of Afro-Brazilian musical elements and European classical traditions. His concerts were mainly at theatres, hotels, and cinemas; especially at the famous Cinema Odeon in Rio de Janeiro, where his performances would take place at the waiting room of the cinema and where he became so popular, that people used to go to the Odeon to hear Nazareth, instead of watching the films. “After I heard the music of Nazareth, I finally understood the meaning of Brazilian soul.” remarked Darius Milhaud to Villa-Lobos in his arrival in Rio de Janeiro in 1916.

Subcollection: Piano

Ivana Gavrić made her debut on Champs Hill Records in 2010, when her playing described as “altogether of an extraordinary calibre” by BBC Music Magazine who also made her Newcomer of the Year in their 2011 BBC Music Magazine Awards.
Her second recording brings together works written between 1905 and 1912, by composers separated by nationality; but linked together in possibly the most exciting period in modern European culture.
Completing her survey of Janáček’s major solo piano works, Ivana puts On an overgrown path and the Sonata, 1. X. 1905 in the context of Ravel’s Valses nobles et sentimentales and Prokofiev’s Sonata No. 2.
Ivana writes “Ever since my student years, the Ballets Russes have greatly fascinated me, in particular Prokofiev’s involvement with Diaghilev and the company. His second Sonata is a real statement by a young composer who has just formulated his style, full of his trademark soaring melodies and occasional sarcastic gestures.”
At a similar time and as if in another world, Janáček was finding his unique style at his own pace. He uses Moravian folk melodies first in the opening numbers of the Path, and more confidently in the Sonata. His harmonies and textures develop, becoming far more daring and introverted in the later-composed and more obscure numbers of the Path. Like Prokofiev, melody was key for Janáček, although in a more fractured, febrile state.
“ I have always been drawn to the brash, brass-like chords at the start of Ravel’s Valses nobles et sentimentales” adds Ivana. “They open the work with such a rude gesture, later melting into more sensuous and quirky takes on the waltz which end in an epilogue: a hazy recollection of ʻthe night before’.”

Recorded in 1963

Firma Melodiya presents a recording of Franz Liszt's twelve Transcendental Études performed by Lazar Berman. Once, being on top of his pianistic career, Liszt called his etudes transcendental (supernatural) - no one but him was able to play them. They seemed to be beyond the limits of human abilities. As time went by, pianistic technique took a great step forward, but only few pianists dared play the entire cycle of etudes during the subsequent 20th century. Lazar Berman, a greatest interpreter of Liszt's music among Soviet pianists, was one of them. Born in Leningrad to a musical family, he drew attention as early as he was four years old. He graduated with honors from the Central Music School and Moscow Conservatory where he studied with Alexander Goldenweiser, won the piano competition at the Festival of Youth and Students in Berlin, and received prizes at the Queen Elisabeth Music Competition in Brussels and the Franz Liszt Piano Competition in Weimar. Overseas performances brought Berman sensational success. "A real titan", "keyboard wizard" said some of the reviews by European and American critics when they wrote about the young pianist's phenomenal technique and brilliant virtuosity. His numerous concerts in Moscow, Leningrad and other cities of the USSR were no less successful. Lazar Berman's performing art was imprinted on numerous recordings which haven't faded for connoisseurs of pianistic culture.
