January 8th, 2017 marked the 50th anniversary of the death of Carl Schuricht. This release of two live recordings made in 1961 and 1962 pays tribute to a renowned conductor who was only to enjoy great international fame in his old age – as one of the last representatives of the generation of old German conductors, and as a master of the classical and romantic repertoire Absolute faithfulness to the musical text and youthful vigour right up to old age: Carl Schuricht (1880-1967), one of the last representatives of the generation of old German conductors during the post-war decades, focused on clear structures rather than romantic pathos or personal eccentricity. These two Lucerne live recordings demonstrate the compelling persuasiveness of his inspired objectivity, especially when performing alongside the celebrated Mozart interpreter Robert Casadesus, whose choice of tempi is particularly striking.

In cooperation with audite, LUCERNE FESTIVAL presents the “Historic Performances” series featuring outstanding concert recordings of artists who have shaped the festival throughout its history. The aim of this CD edition is to rediscover treasures – most of which have not been released previously – from the first six decades of the festival, which was founded in 1938 with a special gala concert conducted by Arturo Toscanini. These recordings have been made available by the archives of SRF Swiss Radio and Television, which has broadcast the Lucerne concerts from the outset. Painstakingly re-mastered and supplemented with photos and materials from the LUCERNE FESTIVAL archive, they represent a sonic history of the festival.

“Although brass overpowers strings in some orchestral tuttis, Schuricht’s Brahms is wonderfully fluid. Worth hearing for the Vienna Philharmonic’s glorious cellos in the second subject of the first movement.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2017 ****

Mozart:

Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor, K466

Piano Concerto No. 27 in B flat major, K595


Among the most widely performed of Mozart’s piano concertos for a good half century after its composition in 1785, the Concerto No.20 in D minor still assumes a commanding place in the concert hall. Among its early devotees was Beethoven, who performed the work at a benefit concert for Mozart’s widow in March 1795 and who may well have found much to admire in the work’s brooding opening, characterized by syncopations and later punctuated by more aggressive outbursts; in his informative liner notes, the Mozart scholar John Irving goes so far as to call it ‘Mozart’s grittiest concerto’. Six years after the D minor concerto, in January 1791, the composer completed the Piano Concerto No.27 in B flat major, K595, giving the first performance of it two months later. This was to be his last public appearance as a soloist, and the concerto has sometimes been considered as a work in which the typical sparkle of Mozart’s virtuosity is tempered by resignation, as if the composer were already aware of his imminent demise. Such an interpretation is contradicted by a close study of the autograph manuscript, however: the concerto appears to have been begun two full years before it was completed. Its language is nevertheless more introverted than most of Mozart’s works in the genre: he seems to be aiming for a sublime delicacy of expression rarely attempted elsewhere in his concerto output. These two exceptional works are here performed by Ronald Brautigam and Die Kölner Akademie, on their fifth disc of Mozart’s concertos – an ongoing series which has been described as ‘a lucky break and a true delight’ in the German magazine Piano News.

“Only the terminally averse to the fortepiano and/or smallish orchestras need stay away from any of these recordings...The smallish orchestra and the solo instrument are well balanced so that the former sounds full-bodied; not large-scale, but by no means pint-sized or desiccated...and the soloist shines without being too forward.” MusicWeb International, 27th September 2013

“while I wouldn't always want to hear it like this, Brautigam's performance is certainly refreshing...swiftness is a feature of all the performances here...His articulation is a model of clarity, his passagework powerfully directed.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2014

“Brautigam and Michael Alexander Willens are never exactly slouches when it comes to tempos, and they give a breathlessly agitated account of the opening movement of the D minor Concerto K466...the slow movement of [K595] is decidedly on the flowing side...but the performance on the whole is one that commands attention. Recommended.” BBC Music Magazine, April 2014 ****

Angela Hewitt (piano)

Orchestra da Camera di Mantova, Hannu Lintu

Angela Hewitt turns to two of Mozart’s greatest and most popular concertos for her latest album. Together with her frequent collaborators, the Orchestra da Camera di Mantova and brilliant Finnish conductor Hannu Lintu, she presents these works in performances which are both elegantly stylish and profoundly felt. This release is completed by a personal reflection on the music by Hewitt herself in the accompanying booklet.

“[the Presto of K453] is brilliantly done, anmd this is a brilliant performance all round.” International Record Review, May 2013

“The sound is wonderfully clean and focused, with an ideal balance between Hewitt’s customary Fazioli piano and the orchestra...a Mozart release to cherish.” The Telegraph, 10th May 2013

“[Hewitt] weights the finale [of K491] to reflect rumination or melancholia, and propounds it supremely well too...Yet the Andante evokes the finest in her, its trajectory exposed through pathos and proud gesture.” Gramophone Magazine, June 2013

“Hewitt displays her pianistic talents to full advantage. Particularly enjoyable are the concluding variations, with their opera buffa-style coda, in which she seems completely at one with the alert playing of the Mantua Chamber Orchestra under Hannu Lintu.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2013 ****

Without question, Dame Mitsuko Uchida is recognized as among the greatest Mozart interpreters of our time. On her latest disc she continues her series of Mozart concerto recordings with the Cleveland Orchestra, performing two of the composer’s most popular concerti: No.20 (K.466) & No.27 (K.595).

Distinctly different from her first recordings of these works, these new recordings see her directing the orchestra from the keyboard, in line with performances of Mozart’s day.

‘Mitsuko Uchida, directing Mozart concertos from the Steinway, and doing so with such ease and infectious pleasure in making music... who wants (or needs) a separate conductor?” The Chicago Tribune commented.

“[Uchida is] subtle and highly polished, never drawing attention to her virtuosity and erring on the side of understatement....Despite the profound intimacy with which she imbues both concertos, there is passion too when required...I cannot recall hearing these works performed with this degree of intimacy and subtlety.” International Record Review, March 2011

“Nothing could be more tenderly touching than No 27’s slow movement...the Cleveland Orchestra (directed from the keyboard) brood and explode on cue.” The Times, 12th February 2011 ***

“Decades after she first recorded these concertos with the English Chamber Orchestra, Uchida is recording them again, this time with the Cleveland Orchestra. All the things that made the first recording treasurable are there: the pearly, immaculate tone, the needlepoint precision, the graceful phrasing. The orchestra, too, is on terrific form.” The Telegraph, 11th February 2011 ****

“where others opt for Beethovenian struggle [in K466], she conveys, to a degree unmatched in my experience, a sense of sorrow, an almost harrowing sadness, underlining the tragedy of the work without vitiating its drama. This she does with a probing subtlety that defies concise description and sets this interpretation apart from any other known to me.” BBC Music Magazine, March 2011 *****

“[Uchida is] capable of eliciting a kaleidoscope of moods and orchestral colours...[her] poignant and beautifully expressive performance is beautifully balanced by the orchestra's illuminating accompaniment...Wonderfully fluent and effortlessly brilliant from orchestra and soloist.” Classic FM Magazine, April 2011 *****
