Chopin with Johannes Moser

Chopin with Johannes Moser


Chopin:

Cello Sonata in G minor, Op. 65

Piano Trio in G minor Op. 8

Kolja Blacher (violin)


Johannes Moser (cello), Ewa Kupiec (piano)

The two compositions performed here are among the very few pieces of chamber music that Chopin left behind. While predominantly focused on the piano, those few occasions when he did explore other idioms, always featured the cello prominently, so naturally this disc is a feast of musical riches for the young cellist Johannes Moser. There’s no holding back with this music as Moser draws out every emotion and nuance from the noble to the pathetic, from soaring lyricism to sober solemnity. At every step along the way, his devotion is matched by his esteemed ensemble partners. A wonderfully programmed and superlatively performed recording!

“Moser and friends ensure there's 'music and life in every note' of Chopin's noble trio, as Schumann described it. An absorbing account of the Sonata combines fire with inner stillness.” BBC Music Magazine, February 2015 ****

“this is an excellently balanced recording, with performances that are persuasive and convincing. In the Sonata, Kupiec and Moser relate perfectly to each other, following another's rubato seemingly spontaneously. Kupiec has a fluid way with Chopin, keeping the music flowing easily, without rigidity...All in all, these are highly recommendable performances.” Gramophone Magazine, January 2015

Anda was a prominent pianist in the fifties and sixties. These recordings of Chopin Piano Concerto No.1, Schumann Piano Concerto and Brahms Piano Concerto No.2 have never been released before in any format. He was notoriously camera-shy but interestingly, the booklet includes a series of photographs.

“Anda's approach - to the Rachmaninov and Schumann especially - eschews sentimentality, blending emotional coolness with improvisatory flair. Numerous insights compensate for occasional gruffness - a set for Anda fans.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2009 ***

Jenny Lin (piano)

The night has always been a time of enchantment; it embodies the uncanny, but also the romantic side of human existence. For her new Hänssler release Jenny Lin has selected a program of night pieces that speak to both the sensual and more complex psychological aspects of nocturnal experiences – from Debussy’s "Clair de lune" to Arthur Lourié‘s "A Phoenix Park Nocturne" to Liszt's "Liebestraum" she evokes sounds, dancing, romance, far from everyday experiences, whispering of things hidden from the light of day.

She evokes thoughts and visions from a shadowy realm that draws us into our inner world. A dramatically styled CD, perfectly expressive of human longing for the other side.

“Her opening selection, Debussy's 'Clair de lune', is starkly deliberate, straightforward and kitsch-free...The Griffes, Glinka, Turina and Lourie selections inspire some of Lin's most ravishing playing on disc...this beautifully engineered release is a welcome addition to Lin's diverse and distinct discography.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2014
