Jan Lisiecki (piano)

NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchester, Krzysztof Urbański

Jan Lisiecki puts the spotlight on rarely recorded works of the orchestral Chopin, the repertoire that became his calling card and kick-started his international career. Jan’s release of both piano concertos (recorded at the age of 13 and 14) with Sinfonia Varsovia and Howard Shelley was praised as one of the most exciting contributions to Chopin’s 200th anniversary year in 2010. The two live recordings that have earned Jan the prestigious Diapason Découverte award in May 2010, placed him on the map as a promising newcomer and resulted in his exclusive DG recording deal. Now, Jan has fulfilled his dreams of completing the orchestral Chopin repertoire: To record all remaining works for piano and orchestra recorded in the studio with the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchester, conducted by the Polish conductor Krzysztof Urbański.

“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 ****/*****

Benjamin Grosvenor talks to Presto's Katherine Cooper about Dances here.

Dances is a dazzling display of solo works for piano from Bach to Boogie Woogie; via Chopin, Granados, Albeniz, Scriabin and the Blue Danube.

For his second solo album on Decca, Benjamin Grosvenor has assembled a typically imaginative and appealing programme of piano music inspired by the dance form.

Shining the spotlight on the music of movement, this album was inspired by a letter from the great pianist-composer Ferruccio Busoni to his pupil Egon Petri proposing a “dance programme” as a theme for Petri’s recitals, a concept Grosvenor expanded on for his Queen Elizabeth Hall debut recital in 2012.

A former Gramophone Young Artist of the Year, Grosvenor will appearing at two BBC Proms in 2014 with a performance of Chopin’s First Piano Concerto with the BBC Philharmonic Orchestra (8th August), followed by a solo recital at Cadogan Hall (1st September). In 2011, he was awarded the honour of opening the BBC Proms Concerts season and was the youngest-ever soloist to perform on the ‘First Night’.

Read Presto's complete review of this disc here.

“The poise of the sarabande is particularly exquisite: Grosvenor at such points seems inside the notes, entirely the music’s servant...This is an exhilarating programme all told, from a greatly gifted young artist. Excellently recorded, too. And even if Grosvenor records the complete fripperies of Schulz-Evler, I know I’ll still be listening.” The Times, 1st August 014 ****

“the delivery is absolutely winning...The discovery is the Valses Poéticos by Granados, done with total charm and dash. Even the trashy Schulz-Evler mash-up of Strauss's Blue Danube is transmuted by Grosvenor into something breathtaking.” The Observer, 10th August 2014 ****

“This is piano playing of nimbleness and elegance.” Financial Times, 23rd August 2014 ***

“his playing exudes a buoyance and clarity which really does dance. Everything is consummately classy and eloquent, but nothing is cerebral or micro-managed...Mark my words, this one will be garlanded with awards in the coming months – and, more importantly, will bring countless hours of pleasure.” Katherine Cooper, Presto Classical, 11th August 2014

“performances that are carried forwards on an irresistable tide of youthful exuberance...there is a sense of joyful release, of music-making free from all constraint...Grosvenor may well be the most remarkable young pianist of our time...this is a disc to prompt wonder and delight in equal measure.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2014

“The quality of this playing is altogether exceptional. Pianist Benjamin Grosvenor takes nothing for granted in music. Nor should we in listening to him...he plainly understands that every interpretation is just one possibility, and he offers us a very enticing opportunity to open our minds...All in all, a world of piano styles evoked as few could even hope to try.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2014 *****

Angela Cholakian (piano)

On this CD, Angela Cholakian, who has become a synonym for passionate performances of new discoveries and original, radical interpretations of Romantic works, shows her creative talent in both these genres in a fascinating combination. Chopin and Liszt are contrasted with Babajanian’s obsessive “Polyphonic Sonata” and Hummel’s meditative, virtuoso Piano Sonata “Hypnosis”. Cholakian’s emotionality radiates through every bar.
