Melodiya presents a set of Prokofiev’s piano concertos performed by Vladimir Krainev.One of the brightest composers/pianists of his time, Prokofiev reflected in his piano concertos the most recognizable features of his artistic individuality like in a mirror. Having resolutely deserted the romantic tradition of the concerto genre, he created a new type of it. The motive toccata style, a splendid technique of scales and passages - all combined with fragile lyricism; sharp grotesque contrasts - and a sunny emotion of life-asserting; a crystal clear form and pattern - and sudden twists of the musical “plot”… This is what a figurative world of these works appears to be with each of them being individual realization of the genre and never continuing the line of the previous one.People’s Artist of the USSR Vladimir Krainev is indeed among the best interpreters of domestic music of the 20th century. While a student of the Moscow Conservatory, he became a world-famous pianist after his victories at the international competitions in Leeds and Lisbon. In 1970, he won the first prize of the International Tchaikovsky Competition.Apart from his flawless technical skills and rich sound palette, Vladimir Krainev was notable for a bright temperament which often roused the artist to do bold and even risky interpretations (one of the Austrian newspapers dubbed him “a tiger of keys on the arena”). That is probably why Prokofiev’s music was so dear to Krainev, who always had the composer’s concertos, sonatas and numerous piano pieces in his repertoire. Vladimir Krainev recorded Prokofiev’s five piano concertos were recorded with the Academic Symphony Orchestra of the Moscow Philharmonic Society conducted by Dmitri Kitayenko.

22 October, 2011 is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Franz Liszt (1811-1886), the brilliant virtuoso pianist, genius composer, renowned educator and music critic, one of the brightest stars of the musical Olympus of the 19th century. As a daring innovator, Liszt stirred up a revolution in both the art of piano playing and composing. Being a classic of the Hungarian national music who imbibed cultural tradition of other countries, Liszt exerted influence upon on the course of European music in general. "If not for Liszt, the fate of new music would have been different," wrote music critic Vladimir Stasov. The piano remained Liszt's favourite instrument throughout his artistic life. His innovative approach to the instrument showed up in his orchestral and symphonic interpretation. He created a multitude of virtuosic transcriptions of his own works and ones composed by others authors such as operatic numbers and songs by Schumann, symphonies by Beethoven. "In the span of its seven octaves, [the piano] embraces the range of a whole orchestra, and the ten fingers of a single man suffice to render the harmonies produced created by the concurrence of a hundred musicians," wrote Liszt. In the field of symphonic music, the composer created a whole new genre - single movement symphonic poem (Tasso, Les préludes, Orpheus, Prometheus and others). This release dedicated to the 200th anniversary of Liszt's birth includes compositions by Franz Liszt performed by some of the best musicians such as Alexander Slobodyanik (his recording of a Hungarian Rhapsody and Piano Sonata in B minor brought him a Franz Liszt award in Hungary, in 1976), Gennady Rozhdestvensky, Vladimir Ashkenazi, Gleb Akselrod, Mark Ermler, Lazar Berman, Vladimir Ovchinnikov and Kirill Kondrashin.

CD1 - András Schiff, piano
CD2 - A. Schiff, piano / Moscow Radio Symphony Orchestra - D. Kitayenko

Firma Melodiya presents never-before-released recordings of András Schiff made at the V Tchaikovsky International Competition in 1974.

One of the most prominent pianists of modern times, András Schiff is nevertheless does not belong to the so-called competition format. The musician who earned the pedestal of philosopher pianist, “a representative of intellectual musical tradition in its high apprehension,” has never had virtuosity, sonic lustre and visual artistry in his sphere of interests.

However, the live recordings of the then 21-year-old Hungarian are of unquestionable interest. Soviet music critic Leonid Gakkel described his impressions of Schiff’s performance in the following way: “From his very first note at the competition Schiff struck me with the vigour of his performance, and that was vigour of the highest festivity… What a touch on the piano, what a charge of energy, what burning fingers! Ultimate activity of a creating spirit at each moment of playing…”

At the competition, Schiff played piano works by Rachmaninoff, Liszt, Prokofiev and Shostakovich, variation cycles and concertos by Tchaikovsky and Brahms. In the opinion of Yevgeny Malinin, a competent judge and professor of the Moscow Conservatory, Schiff “read music without a drop of wilfulness: he lived in and with it.” The panel gave him only the fourth prize (“incomplete correspondence” with general virtuosity and competition standards had an impact). However, it wouldn’t be an overstatement to say that it was the Tchaikovsky Competition that brought the first significant success and international repute to the outstanding pianist.

Melodiya presents a 4 CD set of recordings by pianist Grigory Sokolov. One of the best contemporary representatives of the St. Petersburg piano school, Sokolov is now well known in Russia and beyond. He tours around the globe delighting the audiences of the old and new worlds. Sokolov is a master of now rare “intellectual” pianism. However, unlike the great piano intellectual of the 20th century Glenn Gould, Sokolov prefers live concerts to studio work. “The biggest chasm is the one between a microphone and an individual,” the musician believes.
