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.

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.

“[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 ***

“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

“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 ****

Ritual Fire Dance (from El amor brujo)

Nijmegen, The Netherlands, 20 April 1963


Arthur Rubinstein (1887-1982), born in Poland, requires no introduction – he was one of the greatest and most distinguished pianists of the 20th century with a large discography.

These performances have never been issued before.

They have an historical importance in that after 1914, Rubinstein never played in Germany again and therefore to have him with a German orchestra (KRSO) in Zurich in 1966 was a very rare event.

The fill-up containing performances from Nijmegen in the Netherlands, on the German border, from 1963, was also similarly aimed at a German audience.

Rubinstein caught live in 1966 rather than in the studio brings a much greater spontaneity in the Brahms, which is beautifully and excitingly played without any technical problems associated with live concerts. The orchestra under its then Music Director, Christoph von Dohnányi, on tour in Switzerland, brings a close collaboration to the partnership.

The recital is the completion of the Nijmegen concert, the other part being issued on Medici Masters (MM029) to great critical acclaim.

All these WDR-sourced tapes have been excellently preserved and remastered to the highest standards.

“The orchestral sound is dated and cramped in Brahms's second concerto but Rubinstein's playing is wonderfully fresh, modern and inspired, wrong notes and all. That mercurial, unmannerly generosity extends to his readings of Chopin's Nocturne in D flat major (recorded in Nijmegen in 1963) and to Falla's exhilarating "Ritual Fire Dance".” The Observer, 20th March 2011

“he performs with an eloquence and exultance that are quite simply unique. Every inch a musical king, he makes no sentimental concessions but imperiously sweeps Brahms's outsize demands under the carpet. At the same time, his seamless legato, ravishing tone and soaring lyricism declare his identity throughout...The transfers are excellent and so one can hardly be sufficiently grateful for the issue of such musical and, above all, human treasure.” Gramophone Magazine, June 2011

“The Chopin items are chaste and tender perfection, every phrase caressed and yet totally without self-indulgence; and the Falla Ritual Fire Dance is a thrillingly unbridled encore.” BBC Music Magazine, June 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 ****

Edna Stern (piano)

Naïve celebrates the bicentenary of Frédéric Chopin’s birth with the debut release from Israeli pianist Edna Stern - a programme devoted to the Polish composer’s Sonata No 2 and various short pieces, performed on the famous 1842 Pleyel piano at Paris’s Musée de la Musique.

The award winning Belgian-born Israeli pianist, Edna Stern, presents an all Chopin programme featuring a selection his Études, Waltzes, Préludes and Ballades, together with the well-known Sonata No 2. Chopin admired above all others the pianos of the firm of Pleyel. For this recording, Edna Stern plays the famous Pleyel piano (1842) held at the Musée de la Musique in Paris. The grand Pleyel piano is characteristic of the instruments Chopin had at his disposal during the last ten years of his life, it is very similar to the grand piano of 1839 which belonged to the composer from 1839 to 1841.

This release is part of the Cité de la Musique series on Naïve – offering internationally renowned musicians the opportunity to record on the legendary instruments on display within the museum of early instruments at the Cité de la Musique. Edna Stern is a multi-award winning recording artist. Her first recording, ‘Chaconne’, won the Diapason Découverte and Arte ‘Best CD 2005’ awards. She has been described as having “the panache of Martha Argerich, the musicality of Leon Fleisher and the impeccable finish of Krystian Zimerman.” (Diapason, August 2005).

“The tone is soft and sweetly tactile in the medium register, becoming harder and brighter in the treble, while the single-escapement action makes it harder to play fast repeated notes than on modern instruments, though this matters less when the material is played as deliberately slowly as in Stern's interpretations.” The Independent, 23rd April 2010 ***

“Mercurial and meditative, Stern’s interpretations are distinctive enough. But it’s her piano that makes the big difference: an 1842 Pleyel, which clouds most of the notes in a velvety darkness, transforming textures and cutting out scintillating display. Odd? Perhaps. Yet this muffled sonority was what Chopin favoured.” The Times, 8th May 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.

“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 **

“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

“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 ****

“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 ****
