Mozart:

Piano Concerto No. 9 in E-flat major, K271 "Jeunehomme"

Cadenza: Alexandre Tharaud (with themes of “Jeunehomme”)

Ch'io mi scordi di te?... Non temer, amato bene, K505

Joyce DiDonato (mezzo-soprano)


“Alexandre Tharaud is an atmospheric, characterful pianist whose individuality seems to communicate best on CD … Vivid imagination meets deliciously poised pianism.” Nicholas Kenyon, The Observer, Sunday 24 November 2013

Tharaud returns with a an album of music by Haydn and Mozart, all composed between 1777 and 1786, including Mozart’s masterpiece the Piano Concerto No.9 “Jeunehomme”, widely regarded as one counting among his greatest works. The piano works are cleverly weaved together through the cadenzas. While he performs Mozart’s cadenzas in the Piano Concerto No.9, Tharaud has written his own cadenza for the Rondo in A – employing themes from “Jeunehomme” – as well as for the Haydn Piano Concerto – in which he uses motifs from Mozart’s famous Rondo “alla Turca”, which with the final movement being a Rondo “all'Ungherese”, gives the piece a truly Eastern European flavour.

The album sees Tharaud reunite with old friends – the award-winning French-Canadian chamber orchestra Les Violons du Roy under the baton of their music director Bernard Labadie, and the outstanding mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato in Mozart’s concert aria “Ch'io mi scordi di te?”.

“DiDonato at the peak of her form in Mozart's great K505 concert aria. Her impeccable intonation no matter how decorative the passagework, her effortless agility in all registers and her genius for word-painting (together with Tharaud's vibrant and eloquently shaded piano obbligato) are worth the price of this disc.” Gramophone Magazine, November 2014

“Tharaud has had fun interjecting his own magpie cadenzas into Mozart’s Rondo K386 and Haydn’s D major piano concerto. The French pianist’s restless energy and esprit are infectious throughout. Les Violons du Roy and Bernard Labadie are sparkling partners.” The Observer, 23rd November 2014 ****

World premiere recording


L‘Orchestre de Chambre de Genève, David Greilsammer

In David’s relatively short career, he has already established himself a name for his unique interpretation and presentation of Mozart’s works. In 2008 he caused a sensation in Paris by performing Mozart’s entire keyboard sonatas (all 18 of them) in one marathon day.

On Greilsammer’s 2nd recording for Sony Classical he explores his “infinite love” for Mozart- directing his ensemble “L’Orchestra Chambre de Genève” through a varied programme of the composer’s early works, including the “Jeunehomme” piano concerto (which Greilsammer plays/directs from the keyboard), Symphony No. 23 and an early castrato aria from „Mitridate” opera sung by countertenor Lawrence Zazzo, amongst other works.

Continuing Greilsammer’s philosophy of combining music from different eras to provide new and enlightened listening experiences – the addition of Denis Schuler’s world premiere recording “In-Between” serves as a contemporary mirror on Mozart’s early works.

Greilsammer himself explains the concept and title: “This recording presents a voyage that invites the listener to meet a Mozart we never expected: ambiguous, uncertain, overcome by fear and lost between distant worlds.”

“Being a David Greilsammer disc, this is no ordinary recording of Mozart...Greilsammer’s conducting and piano playing generate a freshness and imagination that allow each of the works to be enjoyed as a dynamic interpretation in its own right.” The Telegraph, 8th November 2012 ****

“Greilsammer has dug up some little-known music, including two numbers from [Thamos] which are a real revelation...Both pieces are performed frenetically fast, and that confrontational style characterises Greilsammer's disc as a whole...All in all, a stimulating disc, though those of a nervous disposition should steer clear.” BBC Music Magazine, February 2013 ***

“his reading as a whole abounds in imaginative phrasing and spontaneous-sounding interaction with the Geneva CO, though the more extrovert passages can sound overblown...Greilsammer's playing in the finale is suitably thrilling, with dramatic interjections from the horns.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2013

“Greilsammer directs a convincing performance of No.23, making the symphony sound more powerful than I remember” MusicWeb International, March 2013

“The superb, thoughtful Israeli-born pianist and conductor David Greilsammer presents works here by the young Mozart that reveal, he believes, the composer’s inner ambiguities...Greilsammer’s performances with the Geneva Chamber Orchestra are lively, fresh and beautiful.” New York Times, December 2013

Schumann & Mozart: Sophie Pacini

Schumann & Mozart: Sophie Pacini


Mozart:

Piano Concerto No. 9 in E-flat major, K271 "Jeunehomme"

Schumann:

Piano Concerto in A minor, Op. 54


Sophie Pacini (piano)

Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz, Radoslaw Szulc

In 2011 Pacini won the Prix Marguerite Dütschler of the Sommets Musicaux de Gstaad. Born in Munich in 1991, her father an Italian professor of literature and her mother a German physician, Sophie Pacini began to play the piano comparatively late, at the age of six. However, her outstanding talent was recognised quickly: she made her debut with Haydn’s D major Piano Concerto in 2000. In 2002, aged 11, she became a student of Karl-Heinz Kämmerling at the Mozarteum in Salzburg. In 2004 she was admitted to the Mozarteum’s institute for highly talented musicians, where she studied not only the piano but also improvisation, aural theory, harmonics, composition and conducting. Since 2007 she has been studying in Pavel Gililov’s master class.

In 2010 Pacini auditioned for Martha Argerich and, after the Liszt Sonata, Argerich approached her, kissed her on the cheek and said: ‘You are very good. Do you know that?’ Since then their friendship has grown. Argerich recommended Sophie to Fou T’song and invited her to take part in the Progetto Martha Argerich in Lugano. They arrange to meet whenever possible. Martha Argerich and Sophie Pacini worked together on the preparation for this, her debut recording of an Argerich favourite – the Schumann concerto, and also on Mozart’s first great piano concerto, known as ‘Jeunehomme’. Named after a French keyboard player who was in Salzburg over the winter of 1776–7, nothing is known of her today, except that the 21-year-old Mozart wrote this remarkable concerto for her.

“This debut reveals a sympathetic tone and an independent spirit which particularly suit the Schumann. Tempos are well-judged, with room for Pacini to explore the work's lyrical meditations. Certain issues between pianist and orchestra could have worked better...But Pacini is promising indeed, and one to watch for the future.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2012 ***

“Pacini (b1991) is a protegee of Martha Argerich and it shows...There's a similar air of in-the-moment rhapsodising and no fear of giving the performance a boot up the backside if she catches her accompanists napping...Pacini clearly has something to say in this music and the technique to do so. What is lacking, perhaps, is ability to take the long view and tie up all the works' episodes into a unified whole.” Gramophone Magazine, June 2012

I Solisti di Zagreb, Antonio Janigro

Two famous LPs on CD. Excellent sound quality.

“Brendel’s 1968 performance of No. 9 is quite outstanding, elegant and beautifully precise….orchestra is just right…the performance of No. 14 is also first rate… a memorably vivacious finale. Outstanding re-issue with natural sound….clean remastering.” Penguin Guide

“This concerto (K271), described by Brendel as one of the wonders of the world and a vision of everything the classical piano could become, was also a favourite of Busoni. In a recent interview Brendel admitted that he struggled with Mozart in early years but found the key to its interpretation during the Fischer master classes he attended as an 18 year old (playing the K310 Sonata).” James Murray

Mitsuko Uchida, Vladimir Ashkenazy & Homero Francesch (piano)

“The prize of these three… concertos, both as to the work and the performance, is the E flat Concerto, K271. Mitsuko Uchida plays it with an ideal combination of passion and poise, letting no point escape her, but never going in for irritating emphases. And the same goes for the conducting of Jeffrey Tate, above all in the great slow movement, which is an anguished aria for soloist and grieving orchestral accompaniment.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2005
