Collection: Instrumental

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’.”

F. Liszt - Transcendental Studies, S139 Nos. 1-12

F. Liszt - Transcendental Studies, S139 Nos. 1-12
ID: MELCD1002179

Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano

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.

Firma Melodiya presents recordings of the suites for two pianos from Sergei Prokofiev's ballets. This album is the first original project of Melodiya for the last twenty years that introduces a new generation of Russian music performers (by virtue of circumstances, Firma Melodiya has been re-releasing the recordings made in the former USSR). The piano duet of Lyudmila Berlinskaya and Arthur Ancelle was formed in 2011. They have won acclaim of the public and some leading musical periodicals for their concerts and recordings. Lyudmila Berlinskaya is a representative of a renowned musical dynasty, an Honoured Artist of Russia and grand prix winner of prestigious international competitions. Arthur Ancelle was born in Paris to an artistic family and has given concerts in France and overseas since 13. He is a well-known interpreter of 20th century music and an author of piano arrangements of symphonic works by various composers. This album features his piano transcriptions of two fragments from Romeo and Juliet. The transcriptions for two piano fragments from the ballet Cinderella featured on the album were made by the outstanding contemporary pianist Mikhail Pletnyov. Prokofiev's suites were recorded by Berlinskaya and Ancelle in 2013.

Cherubini - Beethoven - Almost a Fantasy  - Davide Cabassi, piano
ID: CNT2064
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano

Great attention to be focused on the Capriccio, ou etude pour le fortepiano written by Luigi Cherubini, the great Italian-French composer born in Florence.
and in 1786 he settled permanently in Paris where later on he received the highest and most prestigious honours of France: he was made Commandeur de la Légion d'honneur, the first musician to receive such a title.
Il Capriccio written in 1789 is a true arduous music folly on the piano, a masterpiece which is quite rarely performed.
Beethoven regarded Cherubini as the greatest of his contemporaries.
Nothing new to be pointed out on the famous Sonatas op. 27 no. 1 & 2 by Beethoven.
An absolutely outstanding CD and our artist Davide Cabassi is performing once again on his piano with great intensity.

ARTIST:
Roberto Plano
Piano Steinway&Sons - Mod. D
RECORDING:
Raffaele Cacciola
Bartok Studio
13th/14th July 2011, at Bernareggio (Milan, Italy)


It may already be common knowledge, at least in part, that Andrea Luchesi (or Luchese, Lucchesi Luckesi, but regardless of how his name is spelled, what counts is what the name reveals: the spelling of the name varies, but the city of origin is clear: he descended from those who left Lucca in 1300 for Venice) sits at the heart of a querelle which has reached what is an unusual tone, at least as far as the world of classical music is concerned. Was he or wasn’t he Beethoven’s maestro? Was he or was he not the real composer of some of the most renown masterpieces attributed to Mozart and to Haydn? And more generally what relationship did he have with Weiner Klassik? In spite of the polemics, posing these very questions, as vexing as they are, indicate to all just how important a composer he was. Here, Roberto Plano interprets his Sonatas for the first time on a modern instrument, a Steinway, bringing out all the totally unexpected greatness and splendor of this composer, a composer the history of music had completely forgotten.
We’re very proud to introduce you to another great Italian pianist, First Prize Winner of the 2001 Cleveland International Piano Competition and finalist at the 12th Van Cliburn International Piano Competition in 2005.
He just started collaborating with us, being this his first debut with our Label.
