Charles Richard-Hamelin (piano)

“Richard-Hamelin is a supremely artistic, highly sensitive young pianist, whose strikingly original ideas remain true to the spirit of Chopin…[he also has] the emotional reservoirs to back them up and the technical equipment to convey them without distraction. Surely this is a young pianist of whom we will hear a great deal more, and very soon.” Gramophone Magazine, January 2017

Piano Sonata No. 3 in B minor, Op. 58


Joseph Moog (piano)

Winner of the Gramophone Magazine’s Young Artist of the Year award in 2015, the year he was nominated for a Grammy for the Moszkowski & Grieg concertos album, Joseph Moog is recognised as one of the truly outstanding young virtuoso pianists of our time. The same magazine, reviewing Moog’s Rachmaninov 3rd concerto called it "one of the most formidable" performances in the catalogue – praise indeed!

For his new release Joseph has turned to Chopin – the complete piano sonatas. The first sonata is a rarely heard work. It shows the young composer as yet untouched by the influences of Beethoven, Hummel, Field, Kalkbrenner and the other great composer pianists of the period. It owes more to Mozart and the late classical period. By the time of the 2nd sonata, Chopin had fully absorbed the early romanticism of Hummel and Field, and developed a strong distinctive voice. The slow movement, a funeral march is one of the most famous pieces of music ever composed. The 3rd sonata is a masterpiece, one of the greatest works for piano of the 19th century, and represents the total mastery Chopin had achieved by the end of his tragically short life.

“The young German virtuoso…brings crisp brilliance to its outer movements and plays the unusual 5/4 Larghetto with freedom. In naturally recorded sound, he shows how radiant textures in the Minuetto and Trio surely anticipate the Minuet of Szymanowski’s First Sonata…Moog makes one sit up and listen afresh to the opening of the Sonata in B flat minor…[and] conveys a sense of restraint while revelling in its beauty” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2016 *****

“There’s a lot to be impressed by, and the young pianist’s fans will be interested to hear him in the repertoire” Gramophone Magazine, December 2016

Piano Sonata No. 3 in B minor, Op. 58

Emil Gilels (piano)

When Arthur Rubinstein first heard the fifteen-year-old Gilels perform in Odessa, he exclaimed ‘By God, I can’t describe it. If he comes to America, I might as well pack my bags and leave!’

‘Serious without solemnity, profound without pomp, he was a citizen of the world,’ wrote Jeremy Siepmann of Gilels. ‘Like music itself, his art was all encompassing, embracing both aspiration and achievement, if not always in equal measure. […] He was inconsistent […] but the failures of a genius are more nourishing than the successes of most lesser artists. Even on his off-days, Gilels made you think. At his greatest, you could only marvel.’

These magnificent recordings of Chopin are testament to Gilels’s all-encompassing artistry – one of his all-too-rare outings with this composer. As John Steane noted in Gramophone, ‘… there is not a bar that does not set one thinking about this music anew’.

“No pianist distils tone with a finer touch … than Gilels. […] We can hear luminous and illuminating polyphony everywhere in Gilels’s Beethoven, Chopin and Schumann.” Richard Osborne, Gramophone Magazine

“The Sonata is thoughtful and ruminative, seen through a powerful mind and wholly individual fingers, with some highly personal details, such as the gentle undulating accompaniment, like quietly tolling bells caressing the second group of the first movement, and there is a beautifully pensive and delicately coloured slow movement … there is not a bar that does not set one thinking about this music anew.” Gramophone Magazine (John Steane, A Quarterly Retrospect, May 1980)

“richly eloquent and beautiful’ [Sonata No. 3] … ‘The Polonaises combine warmth with sturdiness … The disc is exemplary in quality of recorded sound” Gramophone Magazine, January 1980

Martha Argerich has been described as “unquestionably one of the greatest pianists of all time”. She recorded this recital in 1965, shortly after her victory in the prestigious Chopin Competition, but it only became available in 1999, when it appeared on CD. This is its first release on LP, the format originally intended. “Argerich was quite the most formidable player we had ever come across,” said the album’s producer, Suvi Raj Grubb, “Nothing would have been beyond this woman.” All this adds up to a recording that is indeed legendary.

“His technique is so impeccable that with him, the rest is expression of identity in its purest form. That identity emerges in all the things he's not able to put into words: tenderness, depth, but sometimes also dark abysses.” (Deutsche Welle)

“Trifonov's performance was a marvel, a mixture of exuberance and fabulous subtlety.” (The Guardian)

“Virtuosity is one thing, youthful exuberance another. Many aspiring talents survive on just one of these qualities. A lucky few have both. No one combines them with musical maturity the way Daniil Trifonov does. The technical brilliance is always at the service of his powerful imagination. The exuberance is controlled by his natural musicianship. What makes him such a phenomenon is

the ecstatic quality he brings to his performances – an all-consuming intensity-of-belonging on the public platform that translates into something thrilling, absorbing, inspiring.” (Financial Times)

“What mattered, and made this such a dazzling event, was the total conviction, the wash of fresh light that the soloist shone on a familiar work. The pointilist precision that turned runs into taut little storylines and chords into multi-hued meditations; the unexpected accent that reconfigured a phrase into something witty or piercing; the ache and yearning of his lyrical lines, made more powerful by his never milking them ... All these details and more were molded into something by turns gripping, lush, wistful, wanton; and, in sum, rhapsodic in the broadest sense of the term.” (San Francisco Classical Voice)

“his trademarks include an extraordinary, inspired intensity mingled with a veritable flood of insight and imagination...[in the Carnegie Hall recital] Trifonov's levels of energy and inspiration would probably be enough to fuel at last two usual pianists...Every piece has a defined sound-world; nothing is repetitive; each feels lit from within, as if improvised on the spot. This is a treat and a half.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2014 ****/*****
