Listenprecious gems from its vaults - Nikolai Medtner’s recordings.

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

Medtner was born to and grew up in a highly intellectual family of German origin which settled in Russia long ago. After more than three decades of living abroad, he stayed a spiritually Russian musician until the end of his days. Medtner’s music couldn’t boast a great number of admirers, but it irrepressibly attracted deep and subtle, although very different artists such as Rachmaninoff and Myaskovsky.

Medtner’s music happily combines traditions of German and Russian culture. Along with Rachmaninoff and Scriabin, Medtner was a prominent interpreter of his own works and one of those who opened a new era of Russian piano music.

According to the outstanding musician, pianist and thinker Heinrich Neuhaus, Medtner as a pianist “created himself everlasting glory… That never ceasing feeling that he was not just a wonderful pianist but also a great musician and magnificent composer, that his thought and hearing entirely guided his fingers and phenomenal virtuosity, and that it was inspired pianism was particularly enjoyable”.

The first volume of the anthology of Medtner’s recordings includes his smaller pieces - Novellas, the cycle Forgotten Melodies and the genre of piano fairy tale invented by the composer. The recordings were made in 1930 to 1947 in Paris and London.

ID: STR57903
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Kolektion: Instrumental

The Italian pianist, Andrea Padova, (Born: 1962 - Italy) studied piano with Vincenzo Vitale, Aldo Ciccolini, Eric Larsen and composition with Franco Donatoni at the Accademia Nazionale di S.Cecilia in Rome. Later he developed his knowledge of 18th century performance practice and that of ancient instruments. At the same time, deeply involved in contemporary music, he collaborated with famous composers, among which Pierre Boulez, Goffredo Petrassi, Franco Donatoni, and Leonard Bernstein.

Andrea Padova first achieved international critical attention when he won the "J.S.Bach" International Piano Competition in 1995. Since then has concertized throughout the world, including New York (Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall), Washington (Washington Performing Arts Society), Chicago, Los Angeles, S.Francisco, Pasadena (Ambassador Auditorium), Montreal, Vancouver, Prague, Munich (Gasteig), Athens, Tel Aviv (Friends of the Israel Philarmonic), Istambul (Presidential Symphony Orchestra Hall), Rome (Radio Symphony Orchestra) and Milan (Teatro alla Scala). Following his New York debut in 1997 the critics praised his "extraordinary gifts, pulsating interpretation, and modern and vibrating conception". His last Washington performance prompted The Washington Post to write "the pianist Andrea Padova turns sound into poetry. His virtuosity, sensitively managed, resounds through every measure".

In addition to the "J.S.Bach International Piano Competition", Andrea Padova has been the recipient of many other prizes both as a pianist ("J.Hofmann", "Ibla Grand Prize", "V.Bellini") and as a composer (Wiener Wettbewerb für neue Musik, Alfredo Casella of the Accademia Chigiana di Siena, Wiener Masters, Concorso Nuove Musiche per Strumenti Antichi, Concorso Gian-Francesco Malipiero and others). His works have been performed at Weill Hall at Carnegie Hall, Accademia di Santa Cecilia, Festival di Musica Antica di Urbino, Wiener Festival für Neue Musik etc...

Melodiya presents piano works by Claude Debussy and Maurice Ravel recorded by the authors.

These unique phonographic documents date back to the 1910s-1920s, when music recording was at its dawn. Following the singers whose voices were so well reproduced by the phonograph, methods of piano music recording were invented. Among the first pianists who put their own interpretations on record were such composers as Rachmaninoff, Scriabin, Prokofiev, Stravinsky, Debussy and Ravel.

“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.

Medtner:
Piano Concerto No. 1 in C minor, Op. 33
Philharmonia Orchestra, George Weldon
Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 50
Philharmonia Orchestra, Issay Dobrowen
Piano Concerto No. 3 in E minor, Op. 60 'Ballade'
