ZSOLT Libelle


A violinist who straddled the divide between the old ways and the new was the Viennese virtuoso Wolfgang Eduard Schneiderhan. He was born on 28 May 1915 and beginning violin lessons at five, he polished his technique under Sevcík and Winkler. From the 1950s onward, Schneiderhan displayed all the qualities normally associated with German musicians. He was scrupulously correct and serious about his calling: punctual, polite, always perfectly prepared. When he played, his attitude was unshowy and the music that emerged was shaped with a classical containment. He did his best to serve the composer by using a decent edition of the music and presenting it with due humility. This program, recorded with the American pianist Albert Hirsh, was issued by Deutsche Grammophon in 1958 on four 45rpm ‘extended play’ records and receives its first release on CD.

Also marking its CD debut is an extremely rare recording of violin encores by Tibor Bisztriczky, a typical member of the Hungarian school who was born at Arad, now in Romania, on 28 July 1908. He made few records, the best known being this ten-inch Deutsche Grammophon LP reproduced here, which changes hands for tidy sums. He was an excellent player who, as Tully Potter points out in his liner notes for this issue, had the misfortune to live in an era when Hungarian violinists were numerous.

Jacopo Salvatori (piano)

This album contains a number of short pieces, most of which were written by the author during the first years of his career. Debussy’s way of writing for piano at this early stage is less articulated yet it contains a certain degree of complexity in his inner structures which indicates how the author had already taken his own path. The choice of subject for his pieces as well as the way he presents his ideas also show a stronger connection with the traditional repertoire: the most interesting example here is the suite Images Oubliées, literally a first version of Pour le piano, where he sketched ideas, which will later appear in his most important works, using and combining them in a less brilliant way. As an example, in the first movement one can clearly hear similarities to Jardins sous la pluje and the first piece of Pour le piano. The structure of a three pieces suite with an “animato" first movement, a sarabanda-like slow piece and a fast ending movement appears here for the first time; it will later develop into Estampes and Images. It is interesting to notice that the second movement here is the same piece as in Pour le piano but with some slight harmonic differences. Among these early pieces there are some other short works, written in the style of his latter pieces, which for various reasons did not fit into the two series of Préludes, but which are nevertheless interesting pieces of music.

Où l'on entend une vieille boîte à musique


From the poetry of Debussy to the nostalgia of Ravel, from the humour of Satie to the insouciance of Poulenc, the French music of the early decades of the twentieth century was created by fine minds capable of grasping delicate nuances, infinite variations of light on the natural world and the human soul. From the gentlest im pressionism to the most outrageous surrealism, the pathways of French music are many and varied - and immensely colourful.

Dedicated to the memory of Brigitte Engerer.

“Queffelec has crafted an inpired 80-minute sequence anchored around some of Satie’s best-known works … Just wonderful!’” Classical Music, February 2013

“This musical jardin a la francaise is dedicated to the memory of Brigitte Engerer, whose death in June last year Anne Queffelec heard of on the very morning she began recording this disc...That is not to say that it's all doom and gloom. Far from it. There are plenty of Gallic high spirits...Altogether an enchanting disc with which to mark your 65th birthday.” Gramophone Magazine, April 2013

“Queffelec has a knack for stimulating programmes and this is no exception...Queffelec's personality is stamped on every note of this generously filled and enjoyable disc.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2013 ****

“Mirare's recorded sound captures the virtues of Queffelec's playing very well, and those of her many admirers who are not bothered by the present rather fragmented programme order will no doubt want to acquire this release...Highly recommended because Queffelec is a lovely musician and pianist.” International Record Review, June 2013
