Michael Studer (piano)

Michael Studer is a remarkable pianist who, although he studied in Paris and Vienna, is not well-known outside his native Switzerland. Since 2000, he has suffered from a hearing disability which tragically caused premature retirement, and CLAVES have gathered together his best recordings, made between 1971 and 1999, into this handsome 6-disc tribute. For the unbeatable price of just one CD, here is a unique chance to discover a rare talent, placed genunely and directly at the service of each composer in turn.

Rachmaninov:

Etudes-Tableaux, Op. 39

6 Songs, Op. 38

Elena Brilova (soprano)

Variations on a theme of Corelli, Op. 42


Alternating the roles of soloist and accompanist,Alexander Melnikov has brought together here two works emblematic of Rachmaninov at his creative peak, before it was brutally interrupted by the sound and the fury of 1917: the famous Études-tableaux Op.39 and Six Poems Op.38 were followed by a very long silence. In 1931, it was a broken man who produced the Variations on a Theme by Corelli, a bitter work that yearns for a past long gone.

The coloratura soprano Elena Brilova studied with Nina Dorliac at the Moscow Conservatory. In 1985 she won first prize at the international singing competition in Holland and has since sung at the Bolshoi, the Vienna State Opera, La Scala, Düsseldorf from 1998 to 2005 and in Japan, China,Taiwan and Israel. She has worked with Alexander Melnikov for many years, exploring the Russian song repertoire from Glinka to Shostakovich.

Alexander Melnikov’s CDs for harmonia mundi include a Scriabin recital and acclaimed collaborations with Isabelle Faust and Jean-Guihen Queyras. Since 2002 he has taught at the RNCM.

“Melnikov shows unerring judgement in programming and execution. Melnikov's partnership with soprano Elena Brilova in the near-contemporary songs written for the dazzling Nina Koshetz… surely touch new heights in the art of the recital duo. …this opulently recorded Rachmaninov disc is essential.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2008 *****

“This stunning disc is finely recorded and makes you look forward to a further balance of songs and piano music from both these remarkable artists.” Gramophone Magazine, April 2008

Mischa Maisky (violoncello) & Sergio Tiempo (piano)

“Mischa Maisky's has been waiting for the right pianist to record the Cello Sonata… and it is easy to see why he chose Sergio Tiempo… Tiempo's easy grace and crystalline spring to the playing provide a magic carpet on which Maisky billows and soars, and the surrounding airiness of the live Lugano recording certainly helps to make this a new benchmark.” BBC Music Magazine, June 2008 *****

“Some glorious playing from Masiky… With the outer movements, in which Rachmaninov indulges not only his lyrical outpourings but the elaborate piano textures that came naturally to him, Tiempo does well to keep the touch light so as to give Maisky freer rain.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2008
