Schumann:

Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 54

Strauss, R:

Burleske for Piano and orchestra in D minor, AV85

Karl Böhm

Weber:

Konzertstück in F minor, Op. 79 for piano & orchestra


Gulda was an unusual personality, a humanist pianist, with an unconditional love of Mozart and jazz. His prodigious virtuosity was deliberately hidden by a refined Viennese and often melancholy mood, which gave some autumn colour to now celebrated scores. This programme demonstrates a true classical stylist.

Recording Date December 31, 1957

Gulda gave his Carnegie Hall debut at the age of 20, and was soon regarded as one of the most important interpreters of the postwar period, playing his groundbreaking interpretation of the complete Beethoven sonatas. His piano students include Martha Argerich, who called Gulda "my most important influence," and the famous conductor Claudio Abbado (1933-2014).

Schumann:

Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 54

Introduction and Allegro Op. 134

Konzertstück for four horns, Op. 86

Version for piano & orchestra

Introduction & Allegro appassionato in G major, Op. 92


Gerhard Oppitz recreates Schumann’s unique romantic world in exemplary fashion, flawlessly mastering the technical demands. He has a very personal passion for Schumann’s compositions and is accompanied by an orchestra ideally suited to his vision, the Bamberger Symphoniker.

“[Oppitz] has the work so much under his fingers that it's as if nothing is a problem for him...the result is sleek without penetrating the surface....Oppitz's performances of [the couplings] are more compelling than his Concerto.” Gramophone Magazine, June 2012

“this unlikely transcription [of the Konzertstuck] proves to be not only likeable but also something to return to, aided in this case by a lively and vivid performance, with Gerhand Oppitz a deft and sensitive pianist and Marc Andrae inspiring a detailed response from the excellent Bamberg Symphony Orchestra...As for the familiar Piano Concerto, this receives an unsentimental performance” International Record Review, May 2012

Schumann:

Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 54


Martin Helmchen’s last two CDs have both been Music Choice of the Month in BBC Music Magazine. His recording of the “Trout” received excellent reviews all over the world: “The young Martin Helmchen is as gifted a new pianist as I expect to hear for years” BBC Music Magazine.

“...a genuinely distinguished account of the Schumann concerto, beautifully coloured and phrased, and with a lightness of touch that's altogether admirable…” The Guardian, 4th December 2009 ***

“Martin Helmchen delivers a refreshing performance of Schumann and Dvorak's piano concertos...the tumbling motifs of Dvorak's first movement are impulsive, the cadenza and Andante are confidently characterised.” The Independent on Sunday, 29th November 2009

“Martin Helmchen is clearly a staunch advocate for Dvorák's neglected Concerto. There are many things to enjoy in this beautifully recorded interpretation, but the orchestra is not nearly as assured in the Dvorák as the Schumann… both Helmchen and Albrecht give a magnificently assured performance of the Schumann concerto.” BBC Music Magazine, February 2010 ****
