András Schiff at Mozartwoche

András Schiff at Mozartwoche

Recording Date: Mozartwoche Salzburg, 2015


Beethoven:

Piano Concerto No. 1 in C Major, Op. 15

Mozart:

Piano Concerto No. 22 in E flat major, K482

Schubert:

Symphony No. 5 in B flat major, D485


András Schiff (piano & conductor)

Orchestra Cappella Andrea Barca

Vienna – once the music hub of Europe – attracted all the greatest composers of its day, among them Beethoven, Schubert and Mozart. This concert with Sir András Schiff and the Capella Andrea Barca from the Salzburg Mozart Week brings together three works by these great composers, all created at the start of their impressive Viennese careers. About Beethoven’s First Piano Concerto the Salzburg press wrote admiringly: “Sensitively supported by the rich and supple tone of the strings, Schiff’s pianistic virtuosity explores the length and breadth of Beethoven’s early work, from the opulent to the playful, with a palpable delight rarely found in such measure in a pianist”, while in Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 22 “Schiff demonstrates his skill in pianistic interpretation and in conducting, nuanced, passionate, a sensitive revelation”.

“This is not Beethoven the nascent revolutionary, angrily tearing up the keyboard, but Beethoven the classicist…the slow movement of K482 is a highlight, with some particularly rapt playing from pianist and orchestra alike. In between comes Schubert’s vernal Fifth Symphony, conducted from memory and clearly with affection, although without undue lingering” Gramophone Magazine, September 2016

“Andras Schiff’s reputation is solidly based on impeccable gentilite and sterling musicianship, qualities which certainly come across here” International Piano, September 2016 ****

“Beautifully moulded performances by all concerned and well recorded, but buy the Blu-ray if you can.” Music Week, October 2016

Hans Gál & Mozart: Piano Concertos


Gál, H:

Concerto for Piano and Orchestra, Op. 57

Kenneth Woods

Mozart:

Piano Concerto No. 22 in E flat major, K482

Bradley Creswick


Sarah Beth Briggs (piano)

Royal Northern Sinfonia

English pianist Sarah Beth Briggs, together with Kenneth Woods conducting the Royal Northern Sinfonia, offers the world premiere recording of Hans Gál’s Concerto for Piano and Orchestra alongside Mozart’s Piano Concerto No. 22 in E-flat, K. 482.

Bringing to light another of Hans Gál’s gorgeously melodic and finely crafted scores, AVIE presents the world premiere recording of the Austrian émigré’s Concerto for Piano and Orchestra with English pianist Sarah Beth Briggs supported by Gál aficionado Kenneth Woods conducting the Royal Northern Sinfonia. Written in 1948, Gál’s large-scale romantic concerto abounds with sweeping phrases and pyrotechnics, yet at the heart of the piece lies the composer’s signature clarity and precision, making the work an ideal coupling for his 18th century Viennese compatriot Mozart’s great E-flat major concerto of 1785.

“Briggs gives a wonderfully balanced reading of music that seems familiar – in its classical poise and charm – and strange…Kenneth Woods and the Royal Northern Sinfonia accompany superbly…with crystal-clear sound, this is [a] most enjoyable concerto disc” Gramophone Magazine, July 2016

“Wood’s deft handling of the orchestral textures is a perfect foil to Briggs’ adroit virtuosity…at one point, time almost stands still, and the pianist’s pellucid tone is raptly intense.” MusicWeb International, May 2016

Mozart: Piano Concertos Nos. 19 & 22


Mozart:

Piano Concerto No. 19 in F major, K459

Piano Concerto No. 22 in E flat major, K482


Larrocha in Mozart, whether the sonatas or concertos, has always attracted high praise. But even by her high standards, this particular coupling which made its first appearance in 1983 must be counted among her most successful concerto recordings. One distinguished reviewer wrote at the time that her captivating performance of the Piano Concerto in F major, KV 459 brought out ‘to perfection the tenderness, the wit, the sheer contrapuntal wizardry of that lovable work’, placing her account alongside those of Serkin and Brendel ‘to give some idea of the stature of her performance’. This is helped in no small measure by Uri Segal and the Vienna players with their sensitive and sympathetic support.

“Larrocha's dew-fresh pianism hasn't dated one jot, but the Vienna Symphony sounds decidedly matronly. They perk up in a witty Allegro assai in No. 19, while the Andante (No. 22) is celestial.” BBC Music Magazine, February 2015 ****

Piano Concerto No. 24 in C minor, K491


Angela Hewitt (piano)

National Arts Centre Orchestra, Hannu Lintu

Hyperion is delighted to present Angela Hewitt’s third volume of Mozart piano concertos. Writing in The Observer, Stephen Pritchard wrote of the first volume that ‘Judging from this first example, it’s going to be a journey as revelatory as her exploration of all the major keyboard works of Bach’.

Here Angela Hewitt is joined by her compatriot National Arts Centre Orchestra of Canada and frequent collaborator Hannu Lintu for sparklingly stylish renditions of Mozart’s Piano Concertos Nos 22 and 24.

Both of these works were written between December 1785 and March 1786. For the first time in a piano concerto orchestration, in No 22 he uses clarinets—an instrument that became a regular member of orchestras only in the 1780s. No 24 is a dark and passionate work, made more striking by its classical restraint, and the final movement, a set of variations, is commonly called ‘sublime’.

Kristian Bezuidenhout [fortepiano: Paul McNulty, Divisov, Czech Republic, 2009, after Anton Walter & Sohn, Vienna, 1805]

Freiburger Barockorchester, Petra Müllejans

"Early on in the planning of these sessions, we decided that the microphone placement would be very different from traditional set-ups. After much experimentation, we opted for a layout very much like theatre in the round, with the keyboard in the very centre, winds in a line facing the solo instrument, and the strings as a sort of envelope all around and behind the piano. Crucially, it brings the winds – such operatic characters in Mozart’s Viennese concertos – very much to the fore of the sonic picture; it also encourages a much more natural and vivid interplay between the piano and the wind band. It has meant that the kind of keyboard-dominated sound one sometimes encounters, has been replaced by what E. T. A. Hoffmann described as a symphony with piano obbligato – the piano, playing both solo and continuo, darts in and out of the lush orchestral texture; at times, incredibly prominent, at other moments, purely accompanimental. Mozart’s sensational gifts as an improviser are well known by now, and indeed there are frequent places in the piano part where embellishment is an obligatory element of the stylistic grammar. Our feeling was that this spirit of spontaneity should extend to the orchestra as well. One will notice that the solo wind instruments depart from the text on numerous occasions; these ornaments were partly pre-planned, partly refined and revised by the wonderful wind principals of the FBO. After all, Mozart was writing for some of the most gifted and wellrespected wind soloists of the time, and although it is hard to prove, I find it difficult to imagine that he would have frowned on his collaborators’ natural tendency to introduce subtle embellishments." Kristian Bezuidenhout

Kristian Bezuidenhout's next release on harmonia mundi USA will be Volume 4 of his solo Mozart project which has received unanimously good, sometimes great, reviews, including IRR Outstanding, Gramophone Recommends, CD Review Disc of the Week and a BBC Music Magazine Choice.

“Bezuidenhout gives us characteristically thought-provoking performances of two of the great Mozart Concertos. Particularly felicitous is his use of solo orchestra strings for some of the music's most intimate moments...Altogether a rewarding disc and one that Bezuidenhout's many admirers will not want to be without.” BBC Music Magazine, February 2013 ****

“Bezuidenhout [has] carved out [a] considerable reputation in this repertoire.” Early Music Review, December 2012

“remarkably consistent in relation to the previous three volumes, regarding the fortepianist's superb technical acumen and musical intelligence, as well as interpretative affectations that seem more precious than stylish...however, Bezuidenhout's spirited style and authoritative fingerwork never operate at less than world-class standards.” Gramophone Magazine, January 2013

“I found this immediately thrilling; the extreme textural and dynamic variations give the music terrific bite … his playing is always imaginative and constantly engaging” International Piano, January/February 2013

“This is a bold, even uncompromising issue, and may not be one for the faint-hearted...Articulation is ultra-crisp, and forte often feels like sforzando...The net effect throughout is vivid, always interesting, sometimes exciting, occasionally prissy, even a little didactic: for all that, I have greatly enjoyed it” International Record Review, December 2012

“Bezuidenhout plays with his usual brilliance and subtlety and with inventive ornamentation. But the instrument’s meagre tone, in comparison with the orchestra, is all too apparent...the Freiburg players’ splendidly forceful, incisive tuttis only underline the disparity.” Sunday Times, 4th November 2012

“'s the irrepressible imagination and vitality of Bezuidenhout's playing, the range of colour and touch he obtains from his keyboard, and the way he uses it to throw new light on detail that give these performances their really distinctive flavour.” The Guardian, 8th November 2012 ****

“the fortepiano’s most persuasive performer...Bezuidenhout still shapes and shades this music with almost romantic finesse, and releases the historic instrument’s full expressive potential. In every register the sound changes: proudly growling down in the bass, bird-bright in the treble reaches, round and velvety in the middle.” The Times, 23rd November 2012 ****
