Vanessa Wagner (Brodmann piano 1814, Yamaha piano)

Ever since her first Mozart disc in 2000, the French pianist Vanessa Wagner has wanted to make another recording of his music. Her ‘encounter’ with Clementi stimulated her to do so and to bring together on a single disc these two composers who have so often been compared. Since 2008 she has also played the fortepiano in concert which has opened a new door in her musical itinerary. She enjoys the technique it calls for, the attitude required of the musician confronted with these fragile instruments, the intimate sound it produces, the nostalgic charm it exudes.To alternate between instruments seemed natural to her, and she now does so as often as possible in concert. Vanessa Wagner has always tried to create her own career path, a trajectory that seems natural, free and coherent to her. This disc exemplifies her approach.

Rondo in A minor, K511

Fantasia in D minor, K397


Eight of Mozart’s divinely inspired Piano Sonatas here receive performances of mercurial inspiration from consummate-musician cum virtuoso-wizard Marc-André Hamelin. His four Haydn albums have enthralled—this new Mozart will not disappoint. Two Rondos, a Fantasia, and a decidedly quirky Gigue complete a delight of a double album.

“Hamelin is never dull. He may not touch the heart through a perfect blend of control and insight, of pulse and flexibility, but his capacity for brilliance, for beauty of sound, and his flawless technical address can amount to pleasures in themselves.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2015

“His extreme refinement of phrase and dynamics, his endlessly fresh approach to detail and breadth of line can be taken for granted: the first item, the late D major Sonata No. 18 has rarely burst off the page so full of vivacity and muscular energy....It's in slow movements...that a quality of alien sophistication...tends to interpose itself.” BBC Music Magazine, June 2015 ****

Sivan Magen (harp)

Harpist Sivan Magen dazzles audiences wherever he goes with his formidable virtuosity and demonstrably perfect technique. Recorded at the famous Yehudi Menuhin School in Surrey, ‘Fantasien’ marks Magen’s Linn debut. The recording is a showcase of the modern concert harp demonstrating the powerful expression, dynamic range and sheer excitement this popular instrument can generate in the right hands.

Featuring transcriptions of works by J.S. Bach, C.P.E. Bach, Mozart and Brahms plus original harp compositions by the lesser known Henriette Rénie and Ekaterina Walter-Kühne, ‘Fantasien’ is united by the theme of fantasy.

Sivan Magen has recorded two previous albums, both of which received critical-acclaim; his Britten recital was listed in the New York Times’ ‘Best Recordings of 2012’.

Praised by the press as ‘a magician’ (WQXR, New York), of ‘unheard of depth of colours, range of expression and rhetorical flow’ (American Record Guide), Sivan Magen is the only Israeli to have ever won the prestigious International Harp Contest in Israel. Magen also won the Pro Musicis International Award in New York and the Borletti-Buitoni Trust’s 2012 Award for exceptional young musicians.

Magen has given solo recitals in New York (Merkin Hall, Carnegie’s Weill Hall), London (Wigmore Hall) and Amsterdam (Musiekgebouw); his chamber music commitments have taken him to Paris (Salle Gaveau) and New York (Allice Tully Hall, the Metropolitan Museum, Bargemusic), as well as several International Chamber Music festivals.

“In the wrong hands CPE Bach's H277 Fantasy can easily disintegrate into series of rhetorical gestures, but Magen takes us into a rarefied of magical colours and dynamic shadings that creates the strange impression of the notes floating free of musical gravity.” BBC Music Magazine, April 2014 *****

Inna Faliks (piano), Rebecca Mozo (narrator)

Inna Faliks is a spellbinding Ukrainian-born pianist with a glowing international reputation. Her long-standing practice of alternating musical interludes with the spoken word takes the form here of narrative storytelling. And with this unique CD—her first for Delos—Inna has a captivating, powerful and very moving tale to tell. Her story chronicles her life’s path: her family’s emigration to America, her seminal early influences and her evolution as an artist. And it’s also her love story, as she is reunited as an adult with the childhood friend who is now her husband. Each episode of the pianist’s saga—dramatically narrated by actress Rebecca Mozo— alternates with a beautifully played masterpiece that is closely connected to her life story from childhood onward. Music and words combine to spin a powerful and moving tale.

As we all know, Walter Gieseking was the first pianist to record the entire piano works of Mozart. This series was produced by the British Columbia and it consisted of no less than 16/20 LPs which have represented a reference point of Mozart’s chamber music discography. From this edition, we have taken all these “minor” but absolutely fundamental pieces (minuets, Variations, Fantasies, Rondos) that today are difficult to find together in one release. French-German pianist Walter Gieseking was largely self-taught. He was born in France and travelled with his family throughout Europe until he enrolled at the Hannover Conservatory where he studied under Karl Leimer until his graduation in 1916. In 1915 he made his debut in Hannover. He was drafted into the German army in 1916, but escaped combat by performing in his regimental band. After the war he undertook the life of a working musician, accompanying singers and instrumentalists, playing in chamber music ensembles, and working as an opera coach.He later became an advocate of new music, performing works by Arnold Schoenberg, Ferruccio Busoni, and Paul Hindemith. One of the most extraordinary pianists of his time, he never practiced, except in his mind. He would study the score, imagine playing it, and then perform it flawlessly.
