Tatyana Nikolayeva (piano)

Poetic performances from the irrepressible Russian pianist, Tatyana Nikolayeva with recordings published for the first time. The greatest Bach player of her generation, an undisputed authority on the music of Shostakovich and a musician of the highest capabilities, Tatyana Nikolayeva (1924-1993), was a person of piercing intelligence and a delightful generosity of spirit.

This open-air Greek recital displays Nikolayeva’s immaculate technique, her underlying sensitivity and profound musicality in abundance, across a vast array of repertoire ranging from Baroque to twentieth century.

“You will see on full display the depth of touch, the legato weight-transfer and the shaping of phrases inculcated by the school of Alexander Goldenweiser…allied to a personality of exceptional purity., generosity and creative intelligence…[this recording], given in the spectacular outdoor arena of the Herodes Atticus Odeon in Athens four years before her death, certainly does” Gramophone Magazine, November 2016

Valentina Lisitsa: Études

Valentina Lisitsa: Études


Chopin:

Études (12), Op. 10

Études (12), Op. 25

Schumann:

Études symphoniques, Op. 13


Following her recent well-received Michael Nyman recording Chasing Pianos, Valentina now turns her attention to the Romantic Era and the Études of Chopin and Schumann.

Chopin’s Études were the first to be seen as true piano works rather than merely studies. Quickly becoming a regular part of the concert repertoire, these are some of the most challenging and evocative works for piano.

Schumann’s Symphonic Etudes, believed to be some of the most difficult music for the piano are also featured on this release, including five additional movements restored by Brahms in 1890 after Schumann’s death.

No other artist on a major label has offered this exciting combination, totalling 85 minutes of music on one CD.

“Lisitsa pulls off the technical high jinks of Chopin's etudes with fleet fingerwork, though they don't sound enough like musical poems.” BBC Music Magazine, February 2015 **

Andrea Kauten (piano)

Swiss pianist Andrea Kauten’s second recording for Sony Classical is of works by Schumann, whose bicentenary will be celebrated in 2010. It includes the Sonata No.3 which Schumann wrote for his wife, Clara.

“…Kauten leaves you in no doubt of her commitment and intensity. Kauten completes her recital with the first two of the Novelletten, finding all of the troubled ecstasy at the heart of the No 2 and playing with an emotionalism very much her own.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2009

“Rich-toned and generous with rubato, hers is almost an old-fashioned approach, but the finesse with which she meets all the technical and music challenges in the sometimes awkward F minor Sonata suggests a keenly incisive mind behind it.” The Guardian, 25th September 2009 ****

Schumann:

Études symphoniques, Op. 13


Julius Katchen, that colossus that bestrode the pianistic firmament for all too short a time, recorded the Brahms Handel and Paganini Variations three times, twice in mono and once in stereo. Surprisingly, these much-praised 1958 recordings have never before been issued on CD and are now being made available singly, on Eloquence as well as part of an 8CD 'Original Masters' tribute Decca box. All of Katchen's dare-devilry in the Paganini set comes to the fore. The coupling, Schumann's Etudes symphoniques, likewise also receives its CD debut.
