Joshua Bell: Bach


Bach, J S:

Violin Concerto No. 1 in A minor, BWV1041

Violin Concerto No. 2 in E major, BWV1042

Partita for solo violin No. 2 in D minor, BWV1004: Chaconne

Orchestral Suite No. 3 in D major, BWV1068: Air ('Air on a G String')

Gavotte (Rondeau) from Partita No. 3 in E major BWV1006


As follow up to the 2013 acclaimed and chart-topping Beethoven album, Grammy® Award-winning violinist Joshua Bell continues as Music Director and Conductor of the world-renowned ensemble, Academy of St Martin in the Fields.

On their new collaboration, this time with Bell also as a soloist, he conducts ASMF from the leader’s chair in an all-Bach program.

Joshua Bell is the first American and first person to hold the title of Music Director since Sir Neville Marriner formed the orchestra in 1958.

“The Gavotte makes a perfectly sweet, well-mannered miniature but the Chaconne, such a towering solo piece in itself, doesn’t gain a great deal from this treatment...There’s redemption, however, in crisp and exciting readings of the Violin Concertos Nos 1 and 2 (BWV 1041 and 1042), with Bell and the players in perfect accord.” The Observer, 5th October 2014 ****

“such is Bell's particular brand of ease with which he mixes traditional sensibility with the lighter articulations and gestures of recent tastes that one is instantly spellbound...Locating small shapes within a larger architecture is one of Bell's crowning virtues, alongside a depth of sound of almost Henryk Szeryng-like dimensions... the conception is original and exceptionally executed with searing and soaring artistic intent.” Gramophone Magazine, November 2014

Musical Offerings

In Celebration of Leon Fleisher at 70


Leon Fleisher’s first solo disc in nearly a decade is released in time to celebrate the great American pianist’s 86th birthday.

Leon Fleisher–“the pianistic find of the century,” said Pierre Monteux–was born in San Francisco in 1928 and accepted into the studio of master pianist Artur Schnabel at age nine. Seven years later Fleisher made his New York Philharmonic debut, and in 1952, won the Queen Elisabeth competition, leading to a series of legendary recordings made with conductor George Szell and the Cleveland Orchestra. In 2014, Leon Fleisher, approaching his 86th birthday, completed the present recording, consisting largely of works for left hand, including one of the pianist’s specialities—Bach’s Chaconne, arranged for left hand by Brahms. The album also features works composed for Leon Fleisher by George Perle, Leon Kirchner, and Dina Koston as well as gorgeous renditions of favorites by George Gershwin and Jerome Kern. All the Things You Are is Leon Fleisher’s first solo album in nearly a decade, and is a testament to the enduring musicianship of a great artist.

“Fleisher is a pianist remarkable not only for the doughtiness and ingenuity with which he has pursued an, in the main, left-handed career...This profound virtuoso’s imagination is charmingly captured by a sequence that includes specially written works by Leon Kirchner and George Perle.” Sunday Times, 17th August 2014

Goldmark & Brahms: Violin Concertos

Goldmark & Brahms: Violin Concertos


Bach, J S:

Partita for solo violin No. 2 in D minor, BWV1004: Chaconne

Encore

Brahms:

Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 77

Nathan Milstein (violin)

Goldmark:

Violin Concerto No. 1 in A minor, Op. 28

Nathan Milstein (violin)


A generous and unusual coupling of 'Hungarian' Romantic concertos, one rather more familiar than that by the composer of 'The Queen of Sheba' (1875). Goldmark's concerto premiered in Nuremberg, October 1878, pays tribute to Mendelssohn, Schumann and Spohr. Milstein demonstrates a purity of style, unmatched even by Perlman whilst the Philharmonia give us Wagnerian majesty. Among the many versions of Op .77, this 4th of five studio recordings by Milstein remains the most perfect, today restored to its original magnificence and clarity. As an encore, the Chaconne BWV1004.

“[The Brahms] is, as expected, a truly great account, with sensitive support from the Philharmonia and Anatole Fistoulari. The sound is not quite good enough for this to be the one performance to own but it is certainly worth the moderate purchase price of the SACD.” MusicWeb International, 26th February 2014

“Intense performances, although the Brahms catches fire only when Milstein appears. He makes the Goldmark seem a more substantial work than it is.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2014 ****

Bach, J S:

Partita for solo violin No. 2 in D minor, BWV1004: Chaconne

Transcription by Schumann

Schumann:

Violin Sonata No. 1 in A minor, Op. 105

Daniel Sepec (violin)

Violin Sonata No. 2 in D minor, Op. 121

Daniel Sepec (violin)

Gesänge der Frühe (5), Op. 133


Daniel Sepec (violin), Andreas Staier (piano Erard)

After his earlier Hommage à Bach album, played on the same 1837 Érard piano he uses here, Andreas Staier is joined by Daniel Sepec in a programme of considerably later works by Schumann. However, these two violin sonatas and the Gesänge der Frühe of 1853 show no retreat from the composer's ideal: here too, ‘the poet speaks' . . .

“Sepec and Staier give a fine performance, and the translucent tone of the 1837 piano by Pierre Erard...is even better suited to the Gesänge der Frühe...There's much to enjoy in the violin sonatas, too” BBC Music Magazine, September 2010 ****

“Though Daniel Sepec's tone tends to astringency, his bowing is beautifully fluid, especially in the Second Grand Sonata. As accompanist and soloist, Staier is spellbinding. In works that seem about to topple over with ideas, fantasy is rooted in the most assured craftsmanship.” The Independent on Sunday, 8th August 2010

Die Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen

Prelude & Fugue Book 2 No. 20, BWV889

Prelude & Fugue Book 2 No. 9 in E major, BWV878


Once again, charismatic Hélène Grimaud presents an album with an individual concept. Bach vs. Bach Transcribed brings together original keyboard works by the master with works by Bach arranged (transcribed) for the piano by pianist-composers of later generations: Busoni, Liszt, Rachmaninov. This is the first time that Hélène Grimaud has recorded Bach – a challenge for any musician. The repertoire includes the famous Well-Tempered Clavier II and the Concerto no. 1 in D minor, the latter performed with Grimaud’s regular collaborators, the Kammerphilharmonie Bremen. Bach “Transcribed” features the Bach/Busoni version of the Chaconne in D minor, the Violin Partita in E major arranged for piano by Rachmaninov, and Liszt’s version of the Prelude and Fugue in A minor

A landmark project in Grimaud’s successful career

“…the C sharp minor Book 1 Prelude and Fugue radiates nuance, linear dimension and a captivating organic flow that evokes Edwin Fischer and Samuel Feinberg at their most sublime. While Grimaud imbues Busoni's violin transcription with freewheeling momentum and organ-like sustaining power and resonance, she scales down Liszt's organ transcription to more intimate, less gothic tonal dimensions, and quite convincingly so at that.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2009
