F. Couperin: L'Apothéose de Lully & Leçons de ténèbres

F. Couperin: L'Apothéose de Lully & Leçons de ténèbres


Couperin, F:

L'Apothéose de Lulli

Leçons de Ténèbres

Katherine Watson (soprano), Anna Dennis (soprano)


L’Apothéose de Lully was Couperin’s hommage to his great musical predecessor and depicts the elder composer’s elevation to Mount Parnassus (where he plays duets with the shade of Corelli and, with Apollo’s blessing, effects a reconciliation between the contrasting French and Italian styles of the day). The Leçons de ténèbres were written for performance in Holy Week and demand—and here receive from Katherine Watson and Anna Dennis—vocal artistry of the highest order.

The Romantic Piano Concerto 71 - Czerny

The Romantic Piano Concerto 71 - Czerny


Czerny:

Piano Concerto in F major, Op. 28

Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 214

Rondo brillant in B flat major, Op. 233


Howard Shelley (piano & conductor)

Active in every genre other than opera, Czerny is now remembered largely for the numerous piano studies he wrote as pedagogical aids. Which makes Howard Shelley’s advocacy of the three virtuoso works for piano and orchestra recorded here, two of them for the first time, all the more welcome: this is music which cannot fail to appeal.

Jean Guyot: Te Deum laudamus

Jean Guyot: Te Deum laudamus

& other sacred music


Guyot:

Te Deum Patrem

O florens rosa

Amen, amen dico vobis

Accepit Jesus panem

Prudentes virgines

Omni tempore benedic Deum

Adorna thalamum

Noe, noe, genuit puerpera

Ave Maria … Signum magnum

Te Deum laudamus


Jean Guyot was another of the composers of the post-Josquin generation active in the Low Countries in the mid-sixteenth century. (He was also a priest, author and teacher, although the details of much of his life remain vague.) Cinquecento has previously explored his secular music (on Amorosi pensieri), but it was Guyot’s sacred music which was largely responsible for the high reputation he seemingly enjoyed in his lifetime. Cinquecento proves equally authoritative in both.

Schumann: Davidsbündlertänze, Humoreske & Blumenstück

Schumann: Davidsbündlertänze, Humoreske & Blumenstück


Schumann:

Humoreske, Op. 20

Blumenstück, Op. 19

Davidsbündlertänze, Op. 6


Luca Buratto (piano)

Hyperion is thrilled to welcome 2015 Honens Prize Laureate Luca Buratto to the label, a pianist whose ‘fiery imagination and finesse’ (Musical America) are perfectly suited to the demands of this all-Schumann programme. Despite its unassuming title, the Humoreske is no mere miniature but a full-scale piano cycle, very much on a par with the Davidsbündlertänze.

Artur Schnabel - The RCA Victor Recordings

Artur Schnabel - The RCA Victor Recordings


Beethoven:

Piano Concerto No. 4 in G major, Op. 58

Piano Concerto No. 5 in E flat major, Op. 73 'Emperor'

Piano Sonata No. 30 in E major, Op. 109

Piano Sonata No. 32 in C minor, Op. 111

Schubert:

4 Impromptus, D899


Sony Classical pays tribute to Artur Schnabel – one of the 20th century’s most influential pianists and musical thinkers – with a 2-CD set of his complete American RCA Victor recordings.

Artur Schnabel – The RCA Victor Recordings brings together all of the pianist’s sessions for RCA Victor, recorded within an intense two months of activity in 1942. Beethoven’s G major and “Emperor” Concertos with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra (conducted by its long time music director Frederick Stock) first appeared on 78s. Two late Beethoven Sonatas, No. 30 in E major op. 109 and No. 32 in C minor op. 111 were issued for the first time in 1976, inviting comparisons alongside Schnabel’s much imitated early 1930s versions. Also from the 1942 sessions are the previously unpublished Schubert Impromptus D 899, a significant addition to Schnabel’s discography.

Born in 1882 and raised in Vienna, Artur Schnabel began lessons at nine years old with Theodor Leschetitzky. The legendary pedagogue recognized his young pupil’s unusual nature, and steered him towards Schubert’s then-neglected sonatas, saying, “You will never be a pianist, you are a musician.” After his 1898 Berlin debut, Schnabel began touring as a soloist, as a chamber player, and in a lieder duo with his future wife, contralto Therese Behr.

Although Schnabel commanded a wide repertoire, he was best known as an interpreter of the Austro-German classics of Mozart, Beethoven and Schubert, with forays into Schumann and Brahms – as he put it, “music which I consider better than it can be performed.”

From 1925 Schnabel taught at the Berlin State Academy until leaving the city in 1933 after the Nazi Party took control. He became the first pianist in history to record all 32 Beethoven Sonatas, and taught master classes at Tremezzo, Lake Como before moving to the United States in 1939, where he became a naturalized citizen five years later. He returned to Europe after the war, and died in 1951 at Lake Como.

Mahler: Das Lied von der Erde

Mahler: Das Lied von der Erde


Mahler’s masterpiece is subtitled as - A Symphony for Tenor and Alto (or Baritone) – and therefore traditionally two voices have sung the six movements of the work. However Jonas Kaufmann feels differently about this and wanted to sing both parts himself. In June this year he joined the Wiener Philharmoniker and conductor Jonathan Nott in a special concert in the Goldener Saal at the Musikverein in Vienna whereby he sang the entire work himself.
