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...

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.

Requiem K 626 in re (tras.x quartetto Lichtenthal)

Type: CD
Subcollection: Piano

Peter Lichtenthal (1780-1853), born in Mozart’s lifetime, became a passionate advocate of his music. Lichtenthal was a doctor by profession, but also a composer and musicologist who wrote an important early biography of Mozart in 1816. Lichtenthal transcribed several Mozart compositions for string quartet, string quintet, and other ensembles. His transcription of the Requiem Mass for string quartet was designed to preserve Mozart’s great melodies in a domestic setting, before the existence of sound recordings. Likewise the beloved Piano Concerto No. 20, transformed here into a version that could be played in many a bourgeois or upper middle class drawing room in the early nineteenth century. The Aglàia Quartet is one form of the larger Ensemble Aglàia, founded in Milan in 1992 and named after one of the three Graces from Greek mythology. They specialize in Baroque and pre-classical music performed on original instruments. They are joined here by Laura Alvini, one of Italy’s best-known keyboard artists for early music, both on harpsichord and fortepiano.

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.

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.
