Schubert: Piano Sonatas Nos. 13 & 21


Schubert:

Piano Sonata No. 21 in B flat major, D960

Piano Sonata No. 13 in A major, D664


Javier Perianes (Steinway piano)

The Sonata D664: an example of Schubert's fine craftsmanship despite being in the shadow of the giant, Beethoven. Only nine years later, Schubert, just 31 years old, produced what was, already, his last sonata (D960), just a few weeks before his shockingly premature death. It would take many decades for these masterpieces to gain the same consideration as the late symphonies of Mozart or Beethoven’s Op.132 but this music is now cherished by today’s artists – among them Javier Perianes, who here returns to Schubert after a remarkable first volume that enjoyed great success with the public.

“You know you’re in safe hands the moment Perianes and his Steinway strike the first notes of the haunting and masterly Sonata in B flat, D960…wherever Schubert’s inspiration goes, Perianes follows with an enviably mix of ease and aplomb…[he] shows consummate skill dappling the tapestry with clouds, constantly shifting moods with a sureness of touch and attack” BBC Music Magazine, July 2017 *****

“Perianes is fundamentally an elegant pianist, one who lets the music speak for itself” Gramophone Magazine, June 2017

“With Perianes, the touch is always warm and the edges are never harsh: the hymn-like opening is whispered and tender, the exploratory passages are wide-eyed and the song-like melodies really sing...It’s generous playing.” The Guardian, 13th April 2017 ****

Schubert:

Piano Sonata No. 13 in A major, D664

First International Release on CD

Impromptu in A flat major, D899 No. 4

Moments Musicaux, D780: No. 6 in A flat

Piano Sonata No. 21 in B flat major, D960


This collection brings together all of Alicia de Larrocha’s Schubert recordings for Decca on a single disc, with her 1978 account of the A major Sonata, D.664 released internationally on CD for the first time. Opening with one of the most sheerly perfect melodies, which Larrocha plays with the utmost elegance, the major work on this program is her intimate reading of Schubert’s final piano sonata, the great B flat major, D.960. In between come two of the composer’s shorter pieces: the scherzo-like A flat major Impromptu and the hymn like Moment musical.

“For the Schubert A major Sonata she finds just the right simplicity and tender lyrical glow … the A flat Impromptu … is perhaps most memorable for a beautifully nostalgic central trio. Her essentially ripe, full-bodied tone is faithfully reproduced.” Gramophone Magazine, February 1980

Jayson Gillham (piano)

Growing up in outback Australia, Jayson Gillham travelled 500 kilometres every week to attend piano lessons. Now, after a stratospheric rise that has seen him acclaimed as one of the finest talents of the new generation, he presents his much-anticipated debut album: Bach / Schubert / Chopin.

Praised for his “absorbing and relentless elegance” (The Montreal Gazette), and possessing “a beautiful bell-like tone, a great sense of expressive lyricism, and virtuosity” (The Australian), Gillham moved to London in 2007, since when he has performed at venues including the Royal Festival Hall and Wigmore Hall in London and Louvre Auditorium in Paris, and with groups including the London Philharmonic, Nashville Symphony and English Chamber Orchestras.

Bach | Schubert | Chopin presents music of unparalleled beauty, vitality and joy by three masters of keyboard writing. The works highlight different aspects of Jayson’s superb musicianship. The album opens with the youthful exuberance of Bach’s Toccata in C minor (Bach was around the same age when he wrote it as Jayson when he recorded it). Schubert’s lyrical A major sonata showcases the sheer beauty of Jayson’s playing; and the Chopin Sonata in B minor, composed just five years before Chopin died, displays a depth in Jayson’s interpretative approach usually reserved for pianists of much more mature years.

To record the album, Jayson travelled to the Reitstadel in Neumarkt, Germany to work with renowned Tonmeister Andreas Neubronner (Murray Perahia, Arcadi Volodos, Khatia Buniatishvili). The Australian launch tour for the album will include recital performances in Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, and concerto performances with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra / Vladimir Ashkenazy, and the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra / Jeffrey Tate.

This recital features Bach's second Partita, Schubert's A major Sonata (D664), Debussy's first book of the Images and the Allegro Op.8 by Schumann. These pieces from the core piano repertoire show the different approaches to the instrument and explore the enormous potential in sound, color and expression.

Gleb Ivanov (piano)

Gleb Ivanov remains utterly true to the legendary traditions of the Russian school of piano playing, while deriving both inspiration and virtuosic example from the world’s greatest technical masters of the keyboard: legendary artists like Horowitz, Rachmaninoff, Gilels and others.

Gleb’s playing – aside from its stunning virtuosity – is distinguished by the kind of emotional intensity and interpretive “electricity” that only exceptional technique can reveal. And he treats the piano as primarily a vocal instrument that must project “singing” melodic lines, conveying deep feeling as only the human voice can. As The New York Times put it, Ivanov is “… a young super-virtuoso, with musical sensitivity and an appreciation of style to go with the thunder and lightning”

These technical and interpretive qualities are reflected in Gleb’s choice of repertoire for this astounding album, ranging from lovely, cantabile pieces by Schubert through paragons of pensive delicacy by Chopin to ultra-virtuosic transcriptions by Liszt and others.
