DVD Extra: Thomas Adès and Tal Rosner in conversation


The London Sinfonietta combine two works from Thomas Adès, one of the most distinctive and popular voices in modern composition. Both works feature accompanying films (by Tal Rosner and Sophie Clements) that are included in this CD/DVD set. This is the second CD for the London Sinfonietta with Signum. It follows their October release of music by Louis Andriessen, featuring the UK premiere of Anaïs Nin, alongside his famed work De Staat.

In Seven Days is a musical interpretation for piano and orchestra of the biblical ‘creation’ by Thomas Adès, composed in collaboration with a film-piece by the artist and filmmaker Tal Rosner. Both music and film evoke the processes of the creation rather than the objects described in the movement titles, using simple elements in repeated and evolving contexts in a perpetual state of flux, change and growth.

The Piano Studies Nos 6 & 7 are arrangements of player-piano works by the American composer Conlon Nancarrow. An influential figure to generations of composers, Nancarrow’s studies for the player-piano (or pianola) allowed him to generate music of extreme rhythmic complexity in a multitude of inventive ways. These arrangements for two pianos by Thomas Adès capture the strange magic of the originals, where fragmented musical ideas are played off against each other in a wild, almost jazz-like way. The works are accompanied by film-visualisations by Tal Rosner and Sophie Clements.

F.F. Chopin - Complete Mazurkas Nos. 1 - 51. Yakov Flier (piano)

F.F. Chopin - Complete Mazurkas Nos. 1 - 51. Yakov Flier (piano)
ID: MELCD1002093
CDs: 2
Type: CD
Collection: Mazurkas
Subcollection: Piano

Firma Melodiya presents a complete set of recordings of Frédéric Chopin's mazurkas performed by Yakov Flier.


Chopin's mazurkas are an inexhaustible wealth of images and moods, which is attractive for both a not that knowledgeable lover of music and a sophisticated connoisseur. Images of a distant and dear homeland, lyrical contemplation, a gross folk dance, poetic sketches, the rustle of ballroom gowns and the rattle of spurs - Chopin put his whole soul, inspired fantasy and artistic skills into these miniatures, many of which are as deep and serious as his sonatas and ballads. A lot of pianists included Chopin's mazurkas in their repertoire, but only few of them had the courage to play them all.


Yakov Flier was one of the most prominent representatives of the Soviet pianistic school and a successor of the Russian Chopinists' tradition. A performer and professor who educated a whole galaxy of bright students, Flier combined romantic spirituality with classical commensurateness, virtuosic freedom with a genuine artistic prowess. Chopin's mazurkas became Yakov Flier's last recording, his swan song where the artist achieve a new degree of musical depth, bright figurativeness and fine realization of "chamber' romantic pianism.

Firma Melodiya presents an album of the remarkable Russian pianist Dmitri Bashkirov.

“Bashkirov moved from Tbilisi to Moscow in the 1950s to study at the conservatory, and his first performance caused a real sensation”, remembered the prominent organist Harry Grodberg. After he graduated the Moscow Conservatory and completed his postgraduate course under Alexander Goldenweiser, Bashkirov received the first prize of the Long-Thibault International Competition in Paris. The piano school of Heinrich Neuhaus had an unconditional influence on the young pianist.

“This is a romantic pianist … of modern formation.

Both dreaminess and tenderness are characteristic of him. But what he has on the foreground when he plays is intensity of feeling”, wrote one of the music critics about Dmitri Bashkirov. Combining impeccable technical virtuosity with emotional depth, brilliant artistry with the skill of a dramatist performer, he mastered an extensive concert repertoire and spent a lot of time in studio as well recording for Melodiya and later for the biggest European labels. Bashkirov played music of the romantic composers and French impressionists with particular inspiration, but his interpretations of Prokofiev were also especially impressive, and the classical harmonies of Haydn and Mozart were followed by sonorous energy of Rachmaninoff and sharp distinctness of Shchedrin.

The album includes recordings of works of Haydn, Schubert, Brahms, Liszt, Grieg, Debussy, Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev and Shchedrin made by Dmitri Bashkirov in 1957 to 1972.

Well-Tempered Clavier Book II. - S. Richter Plays J.S. Bach

Well-Tempered Clavier Book II. - S. Richter  Plays J.S. Bach
ID: MELCD1002030
CDs: 2
Type: CD
Collection: Baroque
Subcollection: Piano

Johann Sebastian Bach’s cycle of preludes and fugues The Well-Tempered Clavier takes a very special place in the world of music. It is not just one of the immortal masterpieces of the world music literature. It literally is an encyclopedia of polyphonic art, its Alpha and Omega; it is a desk book of every thinking musician, a necessary manual for life, and at the same time an inexhaustible source of pleasure. Bach finished the second part of The Well-Tempered Clavier in 1744, twenty years after he created the first part. The reason for composing the send part was his wish to collect in one book the preludes and fugues he wrote at different time and lost among old papers. Bach also wanted to substantially rework these preludes and fugues, give them their final form applying the experience he gained through the years. And that was a truly all-bracing experience. Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier gives plenty of play to very different performer’s interpretations. None of the significant music works has caused as many difficulties and debates about the way it should be interpreted. Such a deep, comprehensive and truly artistic approach to the cycle is typical of Sviato- slav Richter. “When I set to The Well-Tempered Clavier, I get always consumed with desire not to exclude any sides for the sake of one narrow and dogmatic position… I am convinced that Bach can be played differently, with different articulation and different dynamics. So long as the whole is preserved, so long as the strict contours of style are not distorted, so long as the performance is convincing enough”, Richter said.

In 2010 the world celebrates the 200th anniversary of the Polish composer of genius Frйdйric Chopin (1810-1849). This romantic composer was a genuine poet of grand piano. He composed neither symphonies nor operas - his whole creative life was dedicated to piano works. Chopin considered this instrument ideal for expressing feelings and ideas; his nocturnes, waltzes, ballads, mazurkas, polonaises, etudes and scherzos are the recognized masterpieces of piano art.

“To understand Chopin one must know that the composer was a pupil of Bach and Mozart, a pupil of accuracy and harmony. This is a noble genius. Chopin’s Rubato originates from Italian singing: the composer regularly visited the Italian opera studying the singers’ art. Take into account the singer’s breath, expressiveness of the arias and recitatives, singing for the good of the soul - and there appears the proper degree of freedom, not imposed one but following from the sense of melody…” - said one of the best interpreters of Chopin’s music, legendary Polish pianist Arthur Rubinstein. It was performance of Chopin’s works that brought him fame and is still considered to be a world standard.

“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'

Sonata-Ballada in F sharp major, Op. 27
