Stravinsky: Le sacre du printemps & Bartók: Sonata for two Pianos and Percussion

Stravinsky: Le sacre du printemps & Bartók: Sonata for two Pianos and Percussion


Bartók:

Sonata for Two Pianos & Percussion, BB 115, Sz. 110

with Dominic Oelze, Torsten Schönfeld (percussion)

Stravinsky:

The Rite of Spring

arranged for two pianos


Frank-Immo Zichner & Frank Gutschmidt (pianos)

This CD pairs two major works of the 20th century. Stravinsky’s groundbreaking ballet score Le Sacre du Printemps appears in the composer’s own arrangement for two pianos, whilst the other work on the disc is Bartok’s Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion. The keyboard players are Frank-Immo Zichner and Frank Gutschmidt, and the percussionists in the Bartok piece are Dominic Oelze and Torsten Schönfeld.

While the full score of Stravinsky’s ground-breaking 1912 ballet Le Sacre du Printemps experiments with novel playing techniques and highly innovative orchestration, in the composer’s own arrangement for two pianos, recorded here, it is the rhythmical aspects of the music that are prominent. The Hungarian composer Béla Bartók became acquainted with “Le Sacre” through this version in the 1920s, and it greatly influenced his composing technique. Although Stravinsky moved away from folk music after his Russian period, it played an important part in Bartók’s music throughout his life. The Sonata for Two Pianos and Percussion incorporates a synthesis of the stylistic developments of his own time and folk music.

ZOFO duet

Musical compatriots. Collaborators. Teachers. Friends. Pianists. These are the links that bound the four remarkable 20th century composers, whose one-piano-four-hands works are brought together by Sono Luminus on this first CD from the dynamic ZOFO duet. Whether performing public duet concerts together or using the piano four-hands form to explore their symphonic visions, Bernstein, Shapero, Debussy and Stravinsky all understood the musical power of sharing the bench.

When internationally acclaimed solo pianists Eva-Maria Zimmermann and Keisuke Nakagoshi joined forces to form ZOFO duet in the spring of 2009, their goal was to explore and enrich the one-piano-four-hands repertoire by performing and recording existing and new works at the highest level of musical excellence. The pieces they chose for their first public performance as a professional ensemble at the San Francisco Conservatory in the fall of 2009 were by Leonard Bernstein, Harold Shapero, Claude Debussy and Igor Stravinsky – four highly influential composers of the 20th century who knew each other, learned from each other, sometimes performed together, and embraced the piano four - hands form. Since their concert debut in 2009 ZOFO has performed dozens of concerts with repertoire ranging from Johannes Brahms to Tomohiro Moriyama, and in venues from San Francisco to Carnegie Hall to Osaka Japan. But for this, their first CD, Eva-Maria and Keisuke return to the four composers and magnificent pieces that launched them on their career as ZOFO duet.

“[The Rite] is less colorful than the “customary” orchestral version, but the effect is no less profound. The intrinsic rhythmic details are more starkly exposed in the more percussive piano presentation...there is no danger of the percussive keyboard impacts getting on your nerves. Overall, this is a very good disc.” MusicWeb International, April 2013

Duisburger Philharmoniker, Jonathan Darlington

Jonathan Darlington and the Duisburger Philhamoniker create a most exciting live recording of two key works of the twentieth century. This is part of the Living Concert Series.

“The playing is good throughout both performances...Darlington conducts both scores with understanding and conviction. He brings lots of energy and a sense of ebb and flow to the second movement of La Mer and there’s admirable vigour to his reading of the third movement.” MusicWeb International, 20th February 2014
