ID: CR113
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Piano

Valery Tarakanov was born in 1934. Both his parents were scientists specializing in medicine; they were great music-lovers and it was a family tradition to play classical music at home. Valery Tarakanov graduated from school with a Gold medal. Later, he studied at the Moscow State University Mechanics and Mathematics Faculty (graduated with distinction in 1956). He followed the postgraduate course at the Mathematics Institute of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR. Since 1961, Valery Tarakanov works in the same Institute; at present, he is one of the leading scientists at the Institute, doctor of mathematics, the author of several monographs and more than 150 scientific works.
Mr. Tarakanov's musical talent led him to the Vladimir Stassov music School where he studied as a violinist and later to the Ippolitov-Ivanov Musical College. Later on, he improved his skills, taking lessons from many prominent piano and music theory professors. He was especially interested in composition and studied with famous composers Andrei Volkonsky, Eduard Khagagortyan and Edisson Denissov. His brother, Mikhail Tarakanov, an eminent musicologist, also had important impact on his creative life. Among those who played significant part in Valery Tarakanov's musical development was, surprisingly, his mathematics professor Igor Schafarevich, an outstanding scientist, member of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR. The composer himself thinks that he awes to academic Schafarevich his ability to feel the logic of musical form, construct and organize the music (an absolutely necessary part of composing, which does not affect the emotional side).
The name of Valery Tarakanov is well known in the musical world. His compositions - the opera "Antony and Cleopatra", Vespers, Liturgy, violin and cello concertos, vocal cycles, romances and works for choir - are performed in the important concert halls of Moscow and other Russian cities. Many popular radio stations - "Orpheus", "Radio of Russia" and others, include them in their programs. Among the performers - most eminent Russian musicians, orchestras, choirs: the choir of the Academy of the Choir art, "The Seasons" Chamber orchestra, the soloists of the famous "Moscow trio" - Alexander Bonduriansky, Vladimir Ivanov and Mikhail Utkin, Mikhail Tolpygo and many others. Since 1995 Valery Tarakanov is a member of the Composer's Union of Russia; he participates in its musical and social activities.

Mikhail Voskresensky is one of Russia's leading pianists. He is the winner of four international piano competitions (Schumann in Berlin, in Rio de Janeiro, George Enescu in Bucharest, and Van Cliburn in Fort Worth, Texas). In 1966 he was honoured with the Merited Artist of Russia award and in 1989, the People's Artist of Russia. Mikhail Voskresensky has extensive concert experience.
He is the only pianist in Russia to perform all of Chopin's piano compositions during one concert season (in 1982-83, in nine recitals in the Maly Hall of the Moscow Conservatoire).
Mikhail Voskresensky graduated from the Moscow Conservatoire where he studied under Ilia Klyachko, Boris Zemliansky, Yakob Milstein, Lev Oborin (piano) and Leonid Roizman (organ). As student of the famous Lev Oborin, the winner of the First Chopin's Competition in 1927, Voskresensky adopted his teacher's refined romanticism, and perfect taste in harmony with the piano's splendid sound. The images evoked by his playing suggest contrasting musical colours, never out of harmony, with a charming legato inducing the instrument to sing. "His playing fascinates audiences with its artistry, cordiality and ingeniousness. Mikhail Voskresensky is a very talented and intelligent musician", Oborin wrote about his pupil.
Voskresensky's repertoire includes Beethoven's 32 sonatas, all works of Chopin, and 56 piano concertos. He has performed with orchestras under the direction of more than 150 conductors, among them - Charles Dutoit, John Pritchard, Franz Kon-witschny, Kurt Masur, Eugeny Svetlanov, Kirill Kondrashin etc. His 40 CD's include recent recordings of all sonatas and etudes by Scriabin, "Pictures at an Exhibition" by Mussorgsky, Beethoven’s Hammer-klavier, works by Liszt, Schumann, Rachmaninov...
Mikhail Voskresensky began his pedagogical activities at the Moscow Conservatoire in 1959. For 8 years, he was an assistant to Professor Lev Oborin; since 1963 he has his own class. At present, Professor Voskresensky is the Head of piano chair at the Moscow Conservatoire. His pupils have won 111 prizes in international competitions, among them 49 gold medals.
He has participated as juror for international competitions in London, Leeds, Sydney, Tel Aviv and others as well as for the Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninov Competitions in Moscow. He continues to be Chairman of the Jury for the Scriabin International Competition in Moscow.
Mikhail Voskresensky is the President of the Scriabin International Society, and Guest Professor in the Toho Gakuen School in Tokyo.
Professor Voskresensky gives numerous master classes in Russia and abroad. In the last 3 years, he gave master classes in Bejing, Lissabon, Paris, and Tokyo. The Julliard School invited Professor Voskresensky to teach for the period of three weeks in this famous stronghold of American pianism.

Piano Music by Herbert Howells & Bernard Stevens - Jeremy Filsell - Piano

Piano Music by Herbert Howells & Bernard Stevens - Jeremy Filsell - Piano
ID: GMCD7119
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection:
Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano

Neither Herbert Howells nor Bernard Stevens were prolific composers, and both - for different reasons - found themselves sidelined by more fashionable figures during their lifetimes. But the integrity of their music, the inherent nobility of their chosen expression, and their distinctive individuality, have ensured that their music has not died, but has found new and exciting champions - and responsive and eager audiences - amongst the younger music-lovers and record-buyers of today. This is all to the good, and when we hear such immediately compelling music as Howells’s three pieces from his Opus 14, alongside his much later Sonatina of 1971 (written in his 80th year) we must wonder as to why this music has been so comparatively overlooked.

The same is also true of the piano music of the brilliant Bernard Stevens. There are many who feel, with much justification, that Stevens’s reputation as a composer suffered greatly, and unfairly, from his championship of Communism - although he resigned from the Party following the Russian invasion of Hungary in 1956 - and yet his music speaks to us purely as music, and as nothing else. His voice, like Howells’s, is a distinctive one, music by a composer with something to say and - more importantly - with the technical means to say it.

The result is a body of piano music to set alongside his noble symphonies and concertos. The Sonata in One Movement is a fine work of considerable integrity and individuality - like the two other Stevens pieces on this disc, it demands a player of technical ability as well as of musical command, a player such as we find in the gifted pianist Jeremy Filsell, whose commitment to the music of both these English masters can be clearly discerned in his brilliant and sensitive playing.
