Daria van den Bercken (piano)

Dutch/Russian pianist Daria van den Bercken had the classical music world listening when she launched her project ‘Handel At The Piano’ in 2012, playing keyboard works by George Frideric Handel and finding a new audience for this music through videos, concerts and alternative stages including the back of a truck and suspended from a crane.

‘Handel At The Piano’ was well received home and abroad, leading to the prestigious Amsterdam Prize in 2012, concerts worldwide and a release on Sony Classical. Daria developed the Talk & Play presentation, in which she invites audiences to listen to music and rethink structures. Daria presented Talk & Play at the renowned forum for groundbreaking ideas, TED – Ideas Worth Spreading.

Daria has played recitals in all the major halls of The Netherlands, and is also a regular guest at the Concertgebouw Amsterdam. She won the Concertgebouw Vriendenkrans Prize 2005 and the Dutch Classical Talent Award 2006 and 2008. She has performed amongst others at the Virada Cultural Festival in São Paulo, the Delft Chamber Music Festival and the International Gergiev Festival in Rotterdam. Summer 2014 brought performances at the Henley and Petworth Festivals in the UK.

Embracing the world outside her own field of musical expertise continues to be the inspiration for Daria’s current project, ‘Keys to Mozart’. Daria has featured in a weekly series about classical music on prime time Dutch national television and is committed to actively reach out to younger audiences.

“I warmed to [den Bercken's] true oasis of calm in both the Adagios from K322 and K282, a pensiveness beyond her formidable focus...here is no Dresden china reduction and if, overall, admiration is qualified, it remains admiration.” Gramophone Magazine, June 2015

Kristian Bezuidenhout (fortepiano: Paul McNulty, Divisov, Czech Republic, 2009; after Anton Walter & Sohn, Vienna, 1805. From the collection of Alexander Skeaping Unequal temperament, A=430)

In Volume 3 of his widely acclaimed traversal of Mozart’s music for solo keyboard, fortepianist Kristian Bezuidenhout plays a modern reproduction of an 1805 Viennese instrument by Anton Walter. The programme includes the well-loved Sonata in F major K. 332, alongside Mozart’s very last composition for piano, the Variations K. 613. Kristian Bezuidenhout was born in South Africa in 1979. He began his studies in Australia, completed them at the Eastman School of Music in the USA and now lives in London. He is a frequent guest artist with the Freiburger Barockorchester, the Orchestre des Champs-Élysées, the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century, Les Arts Florissants, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, The English Concert, the Chamber Orchestra of Europe and Collegium Vocale Gent, in many instances assuming the role of guest director.

“Bezuidenhout offers a performance that brings out all [the Fantasia's] intensity and passion...his refreshingly imaginative performances are marred only by a liking for exaggerated pauses between musical paragraphs. This disc comes strongly recommended.” BBC Music Magazine, February 2012 *****

“I have no doubt that this cycle is set to become a benchmark. There is nothing fussy or mannered about Bezuidenhout's Mozart, and the tempos provide no surprises. It is exceptionally beautifully crafted, with subtlety of nuance and tiny rhythmic inflections adding immense character, with the phrase structure neatly pointed...Listening to performances of this calibre leads one to re-evaluate the importance of these works.” International Record Review, February 2012

“the third volume of Bezuidenhout's Mozart keyboard msuic cycle attests to the young fortepianist's remarkable technical polish and command, as well as his cultivated though sometimes overly studied interpretations...the Andante cantabile's legato and detached articulations and subtle harmonic stresses are conveyed with admirable expressive economy.” Gramophone Magazine, April 2012

Mozart:

Fantasia in C minor, K475

Piano Sonata No. 13 in B flat major, K333

Fantasia in C minor, K396


We are delighted to present an eagerly awaited recital disc from Stephen Hough. This fascinating programme begins with some of Mozart’s most audacious and forward-looking piano works. Mozart’s Fantasia in C minor K475 is a wonderfully unfettered and uninhibited work, suffused with high drama and a sense of constantly shifting moods. The Piano Sonata in B flat major K333 is a similarly ground-breaking piece, developing in scale and drama from its lyrical, gentle opening.

The second part of the disc features Mozart as seen by others, from the homage of a near-contemporary right up to the modern day, with Hough’s own irresistibly quirky Mozart imaginings, and from elegant miniatures to Liszt/Busoni’s virtuosic Figaro Fantasy. This disc is full of surprises, and demonstrates the full range of Hough’s extraordinary artistry.

“Here’s another winning, imaginatively conceived disc from Britain’s finest pianist … It is unexpected and delightful programme-building. Prized for his pianism, Hough is also a superb Mozartian. He lends these Fantasias an almost Beethovenian weight and depth of expression … Hough’s playing is dazzling throughout” Sunday Times

“There are all too few pianists with the equivalent of Hough’s three Michelin stars … Opening with two of Mozart’s solo masterpieces, the ear is welcomed into an intimate, pellucid sound world with a sophistcated grading of dynamics … [Liszt-Busoni Fantasy on Non piu andrai] provides a hair-raising bravura display that deserves to be heard more often. At least, when played like this” Gramophone Magazine

“A bold and dramatic account of Mozart's K475C minor Fantasia opens this memorable and imaginatively devised recital.” BBC Music Magazine, April 2008 *****

“Opening with two of Mozart's solo masterpieces, the ear is welcomed into an intimate, pellucid sound world with a sophisticated grading of dynamics. Hough plays with what used to be called 'a quiet hand', particularly effective in the first movement of the B flat major Sonata in which he finds an unexpected melancholy amid the music's basically optimistic character.
After the dramatic second (earlier) C minor Fantasia completed by Stadler, and Cramer's attractive Etude, Op 103 No 6, we seem to be listening to a different pianist who now relishes the delicate, perfumed harmonies of Friedman's Menuetto transcription. In the same vein, but imbued with witty Poulencian devices, Hough the pianist-composer reminds us how important charm is to the pianist's arsenal. Again, the pianist changes. This time we hear a barn-storming virtuoso in the Liszt-Busoni Fantasy on 'Non più andrai' and 'Voi che sapete' from The Marriageof Figaro. More fragmentary than the better- known Don Giovanni Fantasy and not quite as effective, it nevertheless provides a hair-raising bravura display that deserves to be heard more often. At least, when played like this.”

As we all know, Walter Gieseking was the first pianist to record the entire piano works of Mozart. This series was produced by the British Columbia and it consisted of no less than 16/20 LPs which have represented a reference point of Mozart’s chamber music discography. From this edition, we have taken all these “minor” but absolutely fundamental pieces (minuets, Variations, Fantasies, Rondos) that today are difficult to find together in one release. French-German pianist Walter Gieseking was largely self-taught. He was born in France and travelled with his family throughout Europe until he enrolled at the Hannover Conservatory where he studied under Karl Leimer until his graduation in 1916. In 1915 he made his debut in Hannover. He was drafted into the German army in 1916, but escaped combat by performing in his regimental band. After the war he undertook the life of a working musician, accompanying singers and instrumentalists, playing in chamber music ensembles, and working as an opera coach.He later became an advocate of new music, performing works by Arnold Schoenberg, Ferruccio Busoni, and Paul Hindemith. One of the most extraordinary pianists of his time, he never practiced, except in his mind. He would study the score, imagine playing it, and then perform it flawlessly.

Tatiana Zelikman (piano)

Although the general public has probably not heard of Tatiana Zelikman, her name is famous among countless musicians in Russia and beyond, for she is considered to be one of the finest pianists and teachers today.

Zelikman trains the youngest pupils and gives guidance to the most experienced pianists, and over the years she has brought to light and then accompanied pianists such as Daniil Trifonov, Konstantin Lifschitz, Alexei Volodin and Alexander Kobrin, all pianists of rare talent who have become celebrities.

'From Couperin to Schumann' is the only Tatiana Zelikman recording. At last we have a soundtrack of the poetic, luminous style of this unique artist, an outstanding representative of the great Russian school of piano playing.
