Chopin:

Ballade No. 1 in G minor, Op. 23

Les jeux d'eaux à la Villa d'Este (Années de pèlerinage III, S. 163 No. 4)

Mozart:

Piano Sonata No. 18 in D major, K576 'Hunt'


One gets a fair semblance of Arrau's artistry through a remarkable cache of recordings made for German Radio in 1937 and 1938. They are released here for the first time, with the exception of the Liszt E Flat concerto, which appeared on a long unavailable Russian Melodya LP and two rare commercially issued Parlophone 78s, added as encores. While Arrau made several important recordings prior to his emigration from Germany, his pre-war discography is small in comparison to his prolific output from the mid-forties on, when the pianist's international reputation solidified. The present compilation, therefore, adds significantly to what we know of Arrau's prime years.

Margarita Glebov (piano)

This CD presents a selection of the less performed impromptus that span a period of nearly two centuries. Four of the works have been recorded for the first time and are by Godowsky, Bibalo, Volaj and Mazhara. The works by Volaj and Mazhara were commissioned by Margarita Glebov for this project.

“an impressive and sympathetically recorded calling-card from a Russian-American pianist who dares to be different - and three cheers for that. Her expressive range and complete empathy with each composer represented here make one hope for more from her.” Gramophone Magazine, December 2010

“Throughout her highly diverse programme, she is in complete command of every element. Her attention to clarity and tonal values is particularly noteworthy, and she summons appropriate bravura for the demanding Balakirev and Moszowski selections...An auspicious debut” International Record Review

Stokowski formed the All-American Youth Orchestra in 1940, its players' ages ranging from 18 to 25. He sought to combat Nazi propaganda touting the wonders of Hitler youth with an artistic statement from young emissaries of the free world. The AAYO toured South America in 1940 and North America in 1941 and was met with rave reviews. These performances boast a unique combination of past and future: the wisdom of Stokowski's vast experience allied with the pure, undiminished idealism of youth. In 1945, Stokowski founded the Hollywood Bowl Symphony Orchestra. The items included here, the only ones that had not been re-circulated on commercial CDs until now, are all brief, and for the most part within a range of varying degrees of lightness in content. Beautifully restored by Mark Obert-Thorn.
