Ravel:

Rapsodie Espagnole


This latest CD from BR KLASSIK contains five great rhapsodies, devised and elaborated by very different composers from different regions, with a lot of imagination and local flavour. With his rhapsody "España" the Frenchman Emmanuel Chabrier focused on the Iberian music and folk music so popular at the time, as did his more famous compatriot Maurice Ravel with his "Rhapsodie espagnole", the four-movement structure of which still harks back to long-outdated symphonic forms. From the Hungarian-born Franz Liszt we have the famous "Hungarian Rhapsody" No. 2, and from the Romanian composer George Enescu the scarcely less famous and popular "Romanian Rhapsody". The American George Gershwin created what was probably the most famous example of the genre in the 20th century with his "Rhapsody in Blue" for piano and orchestra… The Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks under their chief conductor Mariss Jansons are a guarantee of outstanding interpretative quality for these large-scale rhapsodic musical works. The Russian pianist Denis Matusev – internationally famous ever since he won the Tchaikovsky Piano Competition in Moscow in 1998 – proves to be a sovereign and stylistically confident interpreter of George Gershwin’s concertante masterpiece, with its numerous jazz elements. The live recording of this concert was made in October 2015 in the Herkulessaal of the Munich Residenz.

“Ravel’s achingly sensuous Rapsodie espagnole receives the finest performance here, infused with infectious warmth that is sensually beguiling.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2016 ****

“[the Ravel] is played with a satisfying balance of exactitude and flair…[the Gershwin is] full of fire and fun, despite the occasional overindulgence” Gramophone Magazine, October 2016

“This disc is a bit of a guilty pleasure.” MusicWeb International, 21st October 2016

Anastasia Huppmann (piano)

With her impressive debut album, the Russian pianist Anastasia Huppmann brings together works for piano solo by Frederic Chopin and Franz Liszt. Both composers, whose friendly relationship developed during their joint years living in Paris, were affected by the widespread awakening of nationalistic ideas at the time, which led them to use musical elements from their respective native countries, Poland and Hungary, as the basis for many of their works. The catchiness of the rhythms, melodies and harmonies, which had previously hardly existed in this form in the world of classical music brought about highly virtuoso cornerstones like the Hungarian Rhapsodies No. 2 and No. 11 or the popular Mephisto Waltz No. 1 S 514 by Franz Liszt. The polonaises, concert etudes and waltzes by Chopin as well count among the most well-known pieces for piano solo.

The recorded legacy of Albert Wolff is one of the most sought-after by collectors. Of Dutch parentage, but born in Paris, Wolff was something of a polymath: pianist, organist, conductor, composer, and had a long career in recording studios beginning in 1920. His first recordings for Decca, starting in the summer of 1951, were a complete Carmen (with Suzanne Juyol), a Manon (with Janine Micheau) as well as several French orchestral suites and individual pieces. By reciprocal arrangement with RCA that Decca had at the time, the abridged version of Giselle was issued on RCA in 1959 and had to wait fourteen years for its appearance on Decca, when it appeared on its ‘Eclipse’ imprint in 1973. This collection brings together balletic works by Glazunov, Ravel, Weber and Falla, together with Liszt’s Second Hungarian Rhapsody.

“delicate, fanciful, and beautifully played” Gramophone Magazine (Adam)
