Lang Lang (piano)

A stunning set: Lang Lang’s complete recordings, on Deutsche Grammophon (9 CDs) and on Telarc (2 CDs), with the longest Bonus CD (82:49) you’ve ever heard. Plus the 200-page book, with new articles, original liner notes and photos galore of this uniquely charismatic artist – who just happens to be reaching the ripe old age of 30 on the 14th of June.

THE PACKAGING: The box captures the “feel” of Lang Lang in bold bright colours and evocative photos. Open up and you see 11 colour-coded digipaks, one for each of the CD sets (Carnegie Hall Recital in a double digi). Each digi slots into a space in the neat tray in the bespoke box, which cunningly conceals the book in an elegant drawer.

PRODUCT OVERVIEW: The 12 CDs represent Lang Lang’s complete recordings from 2000 to 2009, including the two Telarc CDs he made in 2000 and 2001 (his recording debuts).

There are 5 concerto CDs, 4 solo piano CDs, 1 chamber music CD and 2 “mixed” CDs. The set is arranged by label: DG first, then Telarc, with the bonus CD at the end.


Extra postage costs:
As this set is very heavy (we guess around 2.5kg) we unfortunately need to charge a small amount of extra postage on deliveries to addresses outside of the UK.
Prices vary by country - Please contact us for further details.

Rachmaninoff: Moments musicaux

Rachmaninoff: Moments musicaux


Rachmaninov:

Moments Musicaux, Op. 16

Études-Tableaux, Op. 33

Variations on a theme of Corelli, Op. 42


Xiayin Wang (piano)

With her winning combination of consummate technical brilliance, fine musicianship, and personal verve, the pianist Xiayin Wang captures the hearts of audiences wherever she appears. She is achiving high levels of recognision for her commanding performances as a recitalist, chamber musician, and orchestral soloist in such venues as New York’s Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center. This is Wang’s second disc for Chandos Records. Her previous disc, of piano works by Earl Wild, was an ‘International Piano Choice’ in International Piano.

The six Moments musicaux constitute a set of solo piano pieces, each representing a different but complementary musical form, such as the nocturne, song without words, barcarolle, virtuoso étude, or variations. Although intended from the beginning as part of a set, each piece holds its own well, with individual themes and moods, ranging from the sombre funeral march of No. 3 to the majestic canon of No. 6. Revolutionary and grand in style, the Moments musicaux still retain the charm of Rachmaninoff’s early works: dense, rich in counterpoint, highly chromatic, poignantly nationalistic, deeply felt, and, of course, exceptionally challenging to the pianist.

The Études-tableaux were composed as ‘picture pieces’. Rachmaninoff never did disclose what inspired each piece, but stated: ‘I don’t believe in the artist that discloses too much of his images. Let [the public] paint for themselves what [the music] most suggests.’

The Variations on a Theme of Corelli was the last original solo piano work that Rachmaninoff wrote, and the only one he composed outside Russia. The theme of this cycle is actually not by Arcangelo Corelli (1653 – 1713), but an old Spanish-French folk dance. The Variations were written in 1931, the same year that the composer boldly denounced the Soviet Union, referring to its leaders as ‘Communist grave-diggers’. Stalin consequently banned Rachmaninoff’s music, but, recognising its more appealing and generally less radical nature, rehabilitated it three years later. The work is among several pieces that were later well received in Moscow.

“she fares extremely well in major solo works by Rachmaninov...Every one of the numbers in the Op. 33 Etudes-tableaux is vividly and incisively characterised, and she conjures a wonderful depth of feeling and range of keyboard colouring...The Corelli Variations here possess a poise, dignity and underlying melancholy that not every interpreter finds in this fascinating late work.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2012 *****

“Here, even in Rachmaninov's most savage and turbulent pages, is playing of an awesome clarity and poise. Xiayin Wang makes her chosen composer sound greater and more indelibly Russian than ever...you will surely be lost in wonder at Wang's pianistic but above all musical glory. Such playing underlines the pity one feels for those poor puritan souls still unable to appreciate such beauty.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2012

Steven Doane (cello) & Barry Snyder (piano)

The duo team of cellist Steven Doane and pianist Barry Snyder made a number of award-winning recordings for Bridge Records in the 1990s. Their traversal of the complete music for cello and piano of Gabriel Fauré won several awards, including a citation in the French Journal Repertoire.

The duo returns with superbly wrought renderings of two major Rachmaninoff masterpieces—a heartbreaking reading of the Cello Sonata, Op. 19; and the virtuosic Études-tableaux, Op. 39 for solo piano. Also included are Rachmaninoff's beautiful miniatures for Cello and Piano - Danse Orientale and Lied.

Rachmaninov: Symphony No. 2 in E minor, Op. 27

Rachmaninov: Symphony No. 2 in E minor, Op. 27


This fervent, warm-hearted symphony was neglected for many years, but is now one of the most popular Russian orchestral works. Tadaaki Otaka is one of Japan’s leading conductors and became Principal Guest Conductor of the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in 2010. Here he conducts the internationally acclaimed Melbourne Symphony Orchestra in an exciting live performance.

“[Otaka] remains a highly sympathetic, sure-footed and observant guide through the mighty Second Symphony, and he secures a tidy and spirited response from his Melbourne forces...For some listeners Otaka's will, I fancy, be too circumspect a reading but what it may lack in sheer impulsiveness and hot-blooded, Slavic fervour is more than compensated for by its unassuming sense of purpose and canny awareness of the bigger scheme” Gramophone Magazine, October 2012
