Louis Lortie (piano)

This is the fourth volume of Louis Lortie’s highly successful series devoted to Chopin. The recording perfectly illustrates how Chopin elevated the waltz to a genre of musical art, from danses de salon – evocative of a genial milieu – to ‘works’ with proper opus numbers. Growing up in the 1820s, the composer at first viewed the waltz purely pragmatically, as a means to a social end in the dance salon. But after spending time in Vienna and Paris in the 1830s he decided that a waltz might be worthy of the deeper appreciation accorded a ‘work’.

From moods of liveliness, in introductory calls to the dance, to more poetical or sentimental sections, the affective achievement in these works is great, whether the mood captured is plaintive (the B minor, A flat major, or F minor ones), evocative of the dance salon (the E major), lilting (the D flat major), reminiscent of a Ländler (the A flat major, the only waltz Chopin composed in 3 / 8 meter), dramatic (the E minor), or brilliant (the G flat major).

The nocturnes also trace their origins to the salon. The genre derives from a type of vocal music, akin to the solo romance, but highly popular among amateurs as an opportunity for singing duets.

With this series, Louis Lortie has made his reputation as a ‘model Chopinist’ (BBC Music).

Pascal Amoyel (piano)

After a relationship lasting some ten years, the last few of which were stormy, Frédéric Chopin finally separated from George Sand in July 1847. It was on her estate at Nohant that, over seven summers, he had composed or completed the core of his oeuvre: the Fantaisie Op.49, a dozen mazurkas, the Berceuse, several nocturnes, two of the ballades, two of the scherzos, his last two sonatas, the Trois Nouvelles Études, three impromptus, three waltzes, two polonaises, among others. The summer of 1846, the last he spent in the Berry region, saw the birth of his final masterpieces for it was at Nohant that he composed, started, or finished the last pieces to be printed in his lifetime: ‘miniatures’ like the Mazurkas Op.63 and the Waltzes Op.64, or pieces with a more elaborate structure such as the Barcarolle Op.60, the Nocturnes Op.62a and the Sonata for piano and cello Op.65, the final published opuses that are brought together in this programme.

Pascal Amoyel and Emmanuelle Bertrand plunge us into the heart of those few months before the couple’s separation, when the ailing Chopin did not yet know that he was leaving his musical testament.

“Their performance manages to fashion a perfectly lucid path through the musical thickets of the sonata’s first movement, which can sometimes seem too overloaded with invention...It’s a lovely anthology, beautifully thought out and always executed with perceptive care.” The Guardian, 25th February 2015 ****

“The recording is slightly distant, giving Pascal Amoyel's sound a soft-grained texture...It also means Emmanuelle Bertrand's fragile cello line is occasionally swallowed up in the first movement of the Sonata. That's not to suggest that her approach lacks vigour: there's plenty of mercurial vivacity here, even if her instrument cannot always deliver the volume.” BBC Music Magazine, April 2015 ****

Jean-Marc Luisada (piano)

This is Jean-Marc Luisada’s sixth album for RCA Red Seal since 2007. Luisada is well-known for his interpretation of Chopin, and other romantic repertoire with deep-felt emotion and beautiful tone.

This new recording will also be his second recording of Chopin’s Waltzes. Luisada has chosen to perform the Waltzes in a different order from the published opus numbers; a new order based on tonality, mood and atmosphere. This recording was produced by Cord Garben, the noted recording producer, pianist, conductor and scholar who used to work with Karajan, Barenboim, Argerich, Abbado, and Levine among others.

The French pianist Jean-Marc Luisada has long been regarded as one of the most distinguished Chopin interpreters of his generation. And the accolade is well-earned, for in 1985, shortly after he was launched on his international career, he was a prize-winner in that year’s International Chopin Competition in Warsaw, one of the most prestigious music competitions in the world.

The young pianist’s earliest recordings already featured waltzes and mazurkas by Chopin. After signing an exclusive contract with RCA Red Seal in 1998, he immediately released an all-Chopin programme. Above all he has made a name for himself as a leading exponent of Romantic piano music – not only as a soloist but also as a chamber musician and, finally, in the concerto repertory.

While Chopin remains an ever-present figure in his programmes, Luisada has also recorded piano music by Georges Bizet and Gabriel Fauré, helping to rehabilitate their works. In 2010, he marked the bicentenary of Chopin’s birth by releasing a further CD of the Polish composer’s works, including some that he had not previously recorded.

Khatia Buniatishvili plays Chopin

Khatia Buniatishvili plays Chopin


Chopin:

Waltz No. 7 in C sharp minor, Op. 64 No. 2

Piano Sonata No. 2 in B flat minor, Op. 35 'Marche funèbre'

Ballade No. 4 in F minor, Op. 52

Piano Concerto No. 2 in F minor, Op. 21

Orchestre de Paris, Paavo Järvi

Mazurka No. 13 in A minor, Op. 17 No. 4


A Liszt recital on Sony Classical last year was Khatia Buniatishvili’s critically acclaimed debut as a recording artist. After the great recognition of this first album, she is now following this up with an album that encompasses five works by Frédéric Chopin. This album marks her debut concerto recording with orchestra.

Khatia Buniatishvili has been described by The Independent as “the young Georgian firebrand”. At the age of only 24 years, this Tblisi-born pianist has already achieved an exceptional maturity of interpretation and a distinctive artistic approach that make her playing unmistakable.

In the current season she is the “rising star” in Vienna at the Musikverein and Konzerthaus, is giving recitals in Berlin, Vienna, Amsterdam and Paris, as well as at the Wigmore Hall, is a guest at the festivals in Schwetzingen, Lucerne and Verbier and is making her first appearances with the Munich Philharmonic and the San Francisco Symphony.

“the most completely successful item on her enjoyable new Chopin disc is the stormy B flat minor Sonata...The young Georgian musician shows a remarkable command of her instrument and a volatility that may remind some of Martha Argerich. Yet Buntiahsvili's is not an entirely coherent view of the first moment's structure. She grasps the more straightforward trajectories of the remaining movements, delivering a gripping performance.” BBC Music Magazine, November 2012 ****

“Speeds are flexible; the phrasing is fresh, the poetic touch constant...High technical finesse and strong structural control are other attributes...Even when Buniatishvili is at her most focused, her febrile approach to Chopin’s art may rub some listeners the wrong way.” The Times, 14th September 2012 ***

Pieter Wispelwey (cello) & Paolo Giacometti (fortepiano Erard)

Pieter Wispelwey and his gut-string cello partner for a second time with Paolo Giacometti in a programme of Chopin and Mendelssohn. But there is a another great musical figure on this disc – the cellist and composer Karl Davidoff, who studied with Moscheles and Mendelssohn’s violinist and composer friend Ferdinand David. Davidoff’s brilliant arrangements of the Chopin Waltzes Op. 64 form a sparkling interlude between Mendelssohn’s brilliant 2nd sonata, and Chopin’s late and great sonata for cello and piano.

“it's the two sonatas that show them both at their best – the Mendelssohn is dashingly well played, set out off like a rocket in the opening movement and only pausing for breath in the third-movement Adagio, while in the Chopin it's Giacometti who frequently takes the lead, though the interweaving of cello and piano is beautifully engineered by both players.” The Guardian, 15th September 2011 ****

“[Giacometti] and Pieter Wispelwey give Mendelssohn’s D major Cello Sonata Op 58 with fluency and panache. Between that sonata and an eloquently voiced one of Chopin’s in G minor, Wispelwey shows his mettle in some Chopin waltz arrangements.” The Telegraph, 7th October 2011 ****

“That Paolo Giacometti has opted for a twangy fortepiano of the period may not add to the beauty of the performance but it makes for a better balance between the instruments than if a modern Steinway was used. It also allows for the pianist to articulate perfectly in really fast speeds. The clarity and precision are also remarkable.” Gramophone Magazine, December 2011

“[The Mendelssohn is] a wonderfully uplifting outburst of high spirits, generously and elegantly formed. Wispelwey always brings such a range of texture to his articulation and such airy luminescence to lyric passages that he is a well-nigh ideal exponent, matched by the ultra-sensitive Paolo Giacometti” BBC Music Magazine, December 2011 ***

Pascal Rogé (piano)

Recorded live at The Granary, Beccles U.K., this recital captures Pascal Rogé in the repertoire that has earned him the reputation as one of the world’s greatest interpreters of Chopin and the French repertoire.

Pascal Rogé is today’s greatest ambassador and stylist in French piano music. Winner of two Gramophone Awards, his name is synonymous over many years with the finest in French piano playing, both in concert and on disc for Decca, and now in Debussy for ONYX

“Poètes du Piano is the perfect description for this beautifully sequenced selection of Romantic piano pieces, a series of exquisite miniatures by the likes of Chopin, Ravel, Fauré and Poulenc, in which delicacy and brevity are prized over the more prosaic charms of full-scale works.” The Independent, 18th June 2010 ****

Nikolai Lugansky signs to ONYX, and returns to the studio after a gap of several years.

Lugansky has recorded 23 CDs. His solo recordings on Warner Classics - Chopin Etudes, Rachmaninov Preludes & Moments musicaux and Chopin Preludes – were each awarded a Diapason d'Or. His PentaTone Classics SACD of Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1, with the Russian National Orchestra under Kent Nagano, was cited as “Editor’s Choice” in Gramophone. His Warner Prokofiev CD was one of the “CDs of the Year (2004)“ featured in The Telegraph. Lugansky’s Warner recordings of the complete piano concertos of Rachmaninov, with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra under Sakari Oramo, received Choc du Monde de la Musique, Preis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik and the 2005 ECHO Klassik Award. His last recording (Chopin's and Rachmaninov's cello sonatas) with the cellist Alexander Kniazev won the 2007 Echo Klassik Award.

His all-Chopin recital will be one of the most important CDs to be released in 2010 to celebrate the 200th anniversary of the composer’s birth.

“Characteristically, Lugansky imbues this Chopin recital with concentrated thought. Not for him any gratuitous pyrotechnics...the consistently absorbing feature of his performances is the way they dig so deeply and lucidly into the substance beneath the surface.” The Telegraph, 23rd April 2010 ****

“If you view Chopin primarily as a revolutionary firebrand rather than an introverted dreamer, then this recital is definitely for you...[Lugansky's] performance of the sonata is terrific, with monumental drama in the outer movements, a nerve-ridden scherzo, and a largo that remains notably insistent and driven” The Guardian, 13th May 2010 ****

“This is not for those who thrill to outrageous or self-conscious novelty but more for listeners left to marvel at the miracle that is Chopin. There is a moving transparency and reserve about Lugansky's way with the Third Sonata...His refined brilliance, too, makes something special of the Fantaisie-impromptu” Gramophone Magazine, September 2010

“Lugansky's focus in this Chopin prgramme is unrelentingly inward, the surface as polished and immaculate as a Steinway's lid. His tone quality is always singing, pure and richly cushioned” BBC Music Magazine, September 2010 **
