Michael Studer - The Legacy

Michael Studer - The Legacy
ID: CLAVES502713-18
CDs: 6
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano

He was one of the most acclaimed pianists of his generation. A native of Thun, where he has spent the majority of his life, Michael Studer has left unforgettable souvenirs of his art at the Zurich Tonhalle, at the Stadcasino in Berne as well as in French-speaking Switzerland. His truly remarkable performances were marked by impeccable technique, a delicate touch, translucent musicality and a keen understanding of his talents. And his recordings are a model of artistic perception and lucidity. Each work seems to have been composed especially for him; his playing is so limpid and natural. Whether Debussy or Ravel (his first “ear-openers” during his musical youth), classical composers or the romantics (sublime Schumann!), Michael Studer always gave the impression of being at ease and at home. During the last years he has suffered from an irreversible auditory affliction and retired from performing and recording. In order to guarantee that the magic of his music will continue to live on, Claves has searched its catalogue for his best recordings, as well the catalogue of Müller & Schade, the recordings released on LPs by the pianist himself during the 1970’s and the archives of Radio Suisse Romande, where we found wonderful live recordings of Ravel’s Concerto in G and Saint-Saëns’ Second Piano Concerto. We are pleased to offer a boxed collection of six CDs for the unbeatable price of … one disc! It is our manner of making it possible for broader audiences to make the acquaintance of a truly extraordinary musician.

Major highlights: World premiere recording of the Complete Works for Piano by R.Hahn.
In collaboration with Fondazione Arte Nova, Association Reynaldo Hahn, and Heugel S.A.

For his entire life, Reynaldo Hahn was labeled as a composer of salon music, a lightweight, whose compositions were written to satisfy the academic tastes of social circles in the Belle Époque and during the period between the two wars. Luckily however, in recent years, a handful of performers and publishers have allowed us to discover the incredible
diversity of his eclectic and enchanting work. While not widely known, his piano music is in fact one of the most original aspects of his talent. The outstanding recordings presented in this boxed set of four CDs should help in banishing those long held prejudices.
The documentary that accompanies this boxed set should allow the curious music lover to explore Reynaldo Hahn’s piano universe in great depth.

ID: RCO8005
CDs: 14
Type: SACD
Collection: Orchestral Works
Subcollection: Voices and Orchestra

The Anthology of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra is a transcription in sound of the concert-giving history of the Concertgebouw Orchestra, based upon radio recordings from the archives of Dutch Radio and Radio Netherlands World Service. Six decades of the 20th century are put under the spotlight in six boxes, each containing 14 CDs. We have chosen not only legendary performances under chief conductors of the KCO but also concerts led by countless guest conductors of both greater and lesser renown. Famous soloists make their debuts with the orchestra alongside world premieres of works that have since become classics of the repertoire. This fifth volume of the Anthology features the radio recordings made by the orchestra in the 1980s, presenting an overview on 14 CDs of the orchestra's artistic development under various conductors during that period.

For the 100th anniversary of Sviatoslav Richter, Firma Melodiya presents its
arguably biggest project in its semicentennial history.
The name of Sviatoslav Richter is inscribed in gold in the history of music.
He was not just “more than a pianist,” he was even more than a musician. An owner
of composing, conducting, artistic, directing and acting gifts, a connoisseur of literature,
arts and philosophy, with a will of iron he made all his gifts serve the art of
pianism. An “artist of planetary scale,” as of the critics put it, Richter was like that in
everything - in his unbounded repertoire that he never stopped replenishing until
his last years, in his priestly frenzy of hours-long rehearsals, in the geography and
number of performances, - over 3 500 concerts in 770 places of the world for 55
years of his musical career! (“He was somewhat fathomless, Richter,” said one of his
famous colleagues). However, after he conquered the world (almost literally), he remained
indifferent to ovation and eulogies of the press, painfully experienced each
of the “defects” he noticed in his performance, and at the end of his way confessed
before the journalist Bruno Monsaingeon: “I don’t like myself.”
Of course we inherited numerous recordings from Sviatoslav Richter, live
and studio ones (although he preferred the former to the latter). Hundreds of records
and CDs have been released on domestic and foreign labels (the first of them,
gramophone ones, appeared in the 1940’s while some others became available as
late as in this century). However, even the existing body of recordings captures
neither his complete repertoire nor the entire essence of Richter’s
pieces could sound differently over the years, or even over a day!
And now, Firma Melodiya that recently marked its 50th birthday makes a
unique present for both sophisticated experts and a broad circle of music lovers -
a 50-CD set of Sviatoslav Richter’s concert recordings!
It has to be understood that this collection is far from the complete phonographic
legacy of the great musician. Nevertheless, the set includes plenty of
exclusive, previously unreleased recordings that will make the hearts of even
most erudite connoisseurs and collectors rejoice.
Most of the featured recordings are broadcasts from the concerts played in
Moscow in 1962 to 1983. However, the exceptions are of special interest. These are:
• one of the first Sviatoslav Richter’s extant concert programmes -
Schubert’s last sonata and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition (1949);
• recording of the concert with Nina Dorliak in Bucharest, in 1958;
• recordings of “home” rehearsals with Nina Dorliak.
Alexander Scriabin’s Prometheus, on which he plays a “modest” piano
part in an orchestra, is evidence of Richter’s extremely broad musical interests, or
the recordings of J.S. Bach’s ensemble concertos together with students of the
Moscow Conservatory.
Perhaps the listeners will find a number of “repetitive” tracks surprising.
Richter played (and recorded) many works time and again. Some of them allow us
to track the evolution of the pianist’s art, testify to his constant creative search
and dissatisfaction with himself (the interpretations of Berg’s concertos with different
performers, different versions of Schubert’s Sonata No. 6, Beethoven’s Third
Concerto and Mussorgsky’s Pictures at an Exhibition at an interval of ten and twenty
years, respectively). Some other recordings were played in a shorter stretch of
time (Beethoven’s Sonata No. 1, Prokofiev’s Sonata No. 2), or in succession - from
the mid 1970’s. Considering the growing interest of the public, Richter frequently,
fully or partly, repeated his programmes. So, at an interval of one day he played
Mozart’s Concerto No. 18 and Rachmaninoff’s Etudes-tableaux. In those unique
phonographic documents, a keen ear will detect barely perceptible “atmospheric”
changes that captured an inner aura of a certain concert as each of them was a new
test for the pianist in terms uncompromising strictness to himself, a new step on
the way to Absolute Music.
