Vincent Larderet (piano)

In 2013 Vincent Larderet was awarded the “Steinway Artist” accolade and he prevailed himself in the international piano scene as one of the most remarkable French pianists of his generation. Both the Ravel-SACD “Orchestral & Virtuoso Piano” and the CD with the two piano concertos gained many awards. On this record Larderet presents “his” Brahms, which he boldly combines with Bergs earlier piano sonata.

Scherzo in E flat minor, Op. 4


The two volumes of Kempff plays Brahms focuses on his 1950s recordings from both, the Decca and Deutsche Grammophon catalogues. Volume I features shorter pieces – the miniature Brahms, so to speak. Volume II features his only recording of the First Piano Concerto, and goes on to include the 1957 Deutsche Grammophon recordings of the Third Sonata, the Op. 4 Scherzo and the Handel Variations, as well as two curiosities – the two Rhapsodies, Op. 79 from 1950 and the Op. 117 Intermezzi from 1953, both recorded for Decca, and both receiving their first release on CD. Correspondingly, the 1953 recording of the Rhapsodies and the 1950 recording of the Intemezzi appear on Volume I.

“Kempff's only recording of the D minor Piano Concerto features here, lyrical and understated rather than barnstorming. The Handel Variations are superb; the Third Sonata is slightly underpowered.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2014 ***

Brahms:

Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Handel, Op. 24

Piano Sonata No. 3 in F minor, Op. 5


British pianist Jonathan Plowright makes his début recording on BIS. Hailed by Gramophone as ‘one of the finest living pianists’, Plowright is recognised worldwide as a truly exceptional artist.

Brahms’s Piano Sonata No. 3 is heroic in scale, unconventional in layout and exudes high quality making it one of the most impressive sonatas since those of Beethoven and Schubert.

Brahms never wrote another piano sonata after completing No. 3 but instead concentrated on a series of large-scale sets of variations, among which the Handel Variations must be considered his crowning achievement. Completed in September 1861 the work shows Brahms at the height of his powers,

“His warmth and sincerity combine with a superbly assured and powerful technique to create one of the finest performances [of the F minor Sonata] on record...His Handel Variations, too, are subtly and economically inflected, never searching for easy glamour or effect...One could hardly wish for more and I can scarcely wait for further volumes from this pianist, adding that both the piano concertos positively cry out for his attention.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2013

“If Brahms ever wrote a symphony for the piano then the Sonata No. 3 Op.5 is very much this piece, and Plowright’s range of expression, his daring periods of absolute repose, extended passages of development and extremes of contrast deliver this impression as few other performances I have encountered.” MusicWeb International, 5th June 2013

Florian Krumpöck (piano)

Alban Berg and Johannes Brahms are surely among the most important composers of their time. Even if they are separated chronologically and stylistically, there is a link: Brahms was only 20 when he wrote his Piano Sonata in F minor, Op. 5, his third and last in the genre. After Alban Berg composed his Piano Sonata, Op. 1 he never wrote another. Pianist Florian Krumpöck presents these two contrasting yet comparable works on this recording.

Internationally celebrated as both a soloist and conductor, Florian Krumpöck has more than proven his outstanding capability on the international concert scene. Appointed as one of the youngest music directors in German history in 2011, Krumpöck characteristically masters enormous amounts of opera and concert literature as well as piano repertoire, and particularly enthrals his audiences with his double function as a soloist and conductor.
