Just last year, Florian Uhlig‘s recording of French Piano Concertos created a sensation. Though originally conceived as a respite from his ongoing project to record the first, truly complete edition of the piano works of Robert Schumann, Florian Uhlig’s excursion into late 19th and 20th century French repertoire demonstrated that he has a knack for the brilliant, urbane sound-world of the great French composers.

This year, Uhlig continues his explorations in this new recording of the piano works of Maurice Ravel. Ravel's piano music is perhaps the most concentrated corpus of music ever produced by a major composer. Despite their modest dimensions (the complete oeuvre can be performed in just over 2 hours), each composition sets out to achieve something new, shaping the genre to achieve works of consummate originality. And no one surpasses Florian Uhlig in delivering performances that allow all the fascinating, ecstatic virtuosity of this music to shine.

“Technically, this is playing of the highest order. Florian Uhlig has fingers to die for, and one of the advantages of this is that he has the confidence to use the sustaining pedal only when it's really called for. Time and again, I was stunned by the clarity and brilliance of passages that too often pass in a hopeful mush.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2014 ****

CPE Bach: Works for Violin and Pianoforte

CPE Bach: Works for Violin and Pianoforte

Recorded in the Kammermusik Studio des SWR, Stuttgart, Germany, 9-11 January 2006


Bach, C P E:

Sonate en ut mineur H514, Wq78

Sonate en si bémol H513, Wq77

Arioso con variazioni, Wq. 79 (H535)

Sonate en si mineur H512, Wq 76


Albrecht Breuninger (violin), Piet Kuijken (piano)

The sonatas of 1763 presented here show not only the composer's ability to express personal feelings, but are direct precursors of the great creations of Mozart and Beethoven in the field of instrumental sonatas with obligato piano accompaniment. These passionate works anticipate developments that would appear later in the Romantic era. That alone should be enough to want to listen to them. Period instrument experts Piet Kuijken and Albrecht Breuninger bring this music to life with spontanety and a dash of improvisation - just right for these Sturm und Drang works of original genius.

Schubert - Piano Works Volume 11

Schubert - Piano Works Volume 11


Schubert:

Piano Sonata No. 19 in C minor, D958

Adagio in D flat, D505

Hungarian Melody in B minor D817

Galop and 8 Ecossaises D735

10 Variations in F major for piano, D156 (1815)


Gerhard Oppitz has played all the sonatas of the Viennese master Schubert in the course of his explorations, but he also has taken up many of Schubert's smaller pieces for the piano, which are less frequently played in concert and are still largely unknown. Here, the composer creates a special intimacy with the listener in these sometimes almost improvised works that provide fascinating insights into Schubert's creative process.

This CD continues Oppitz's Schubertian dialogue through the juxtaposition of the composer's great late period Sonata D 958 with many smaller pieces, such as the 10 variations of 1815, written when Schubert was just 18 years of age.

Bach, C P E: Hamburg Symphonies (6) for Strings, Wq. 182 (H567-662)


In honor of CPE Bach's 300th birthday, hänssler CLASSIC will be releasing an exciting series of recordings dedicated to the music of this well known but hitherto neglected Bach son during the first 3 months of 2014. At the beginning there are the so-called “Hamburg” symphonies Wq 182, interpreted with great sensitivity and bite, when necessary, by the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra under the renowned conductor and former violist of the Berlin Philharmonic, Wolfram Christ. Maestro Christ sees these works as expressive pieces, open to multiple interpretations that invite the listener to experience them as almost Romantic in their gesture and content. Deciding on a fortepiano continuo instrument is not only a historically informed decision, but contributes to a perfectly balanced overall sound.

Bruckner: Symphony No. 9 in D Minor

Bruckner: Symphony No. 9 in D Minor


Norrington has released a series of acclaimed Bruckner performances on CD. His fresh approach injects a healthy dose of “worldliness” into these works.

“Where Norrington is fearless is in Bruckner’s on-the-spot shifts of tempo or key.” Gramophone

“As might be expected, Sir Roger employs instruments of the day, with a head-count that Bruckner might have expected and an appropriate seating plan. Bowing, phrasing and articulation are all in keeping with the manners of period and there's the usual Norrington embargo on vibrato...Excellent sound and, I suppose, good to have as food for thought, which is invariably what Norrington is all about.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2012

Symphony No. 92 in G major 'Oxford'


Read Presto's complete review of this disc here.

“Fey has form for his previous heavy-handed telling of Haydn's jokes but, mirabile dictu, he plays this one pretty much straight...just about the best offering yet in this occasionally exasperating but always thought-provoking series.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2012

“Fey is rightly more interested in recreating the spirit, drama and character that Haydn would have wanted rather than strictly the sound world...it is clear that he combines that knowledge along with his sound musical instincts in everything he does...This is really exciting playing – bold and daring and invariably seems to somehow feel ‘right’.” Chris O'Reilly, Presto Classical, 19th March 2012
