Vanessa Perez (piano)

This new recording of the complete Preludes of Frederick Chopin represents the debut on Telarc Classics of the highly regarded young Venezuelan-American pianist Vanessa Perez. In recent years she has been championed as one of the best young musical talents on the scene by the likes of legendary pianist Claudio Arrau and the great conductor Zubin Mehta.

Vanessa Perez is a product of the same energised musical culture in Venezuela that produced such international stars as conductor Gustavo Dudamel and pianist Gabriela Montero. In 2009 she performed alongside star violinist Joshua Bell in Astor Piazzolla’s ‘Oblivion’ on his “At Home with Friends” album for Sony Classical. She also worked with Jan Vogler on Piazzolla’s Le Grand Tango and other pieces for the cellist’s 2008 album “Tango”, also released by Sony. In 2005 she produced a solo album for VAI that featured Chopin’s four Ballades, pieces from Albéniz’s Ibería and a work by contemporary composer Suzanne Farrin.

Perez makes her Telarc Classics debut with an all-Chopin collection that includes the 24 Preludes Op. 28, and some other popular pieces, among them the Barcarolle in F sharp major and the Fantasie in F minor.

“The surging way she plays the opening Prelude suggests pleasure in the sheer physicality of performance; the defiant dourness of the second suggests a personal vision...I suspect Perez is at heart a rationalist, not a Romantic.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2012 *****

“by the time we reach the F sharp minor Prelude (No. 13), we are listening to playing of real depth and poetry. If the 'Raindrop' Prelude will be too drawn out for some tastes, no such reservation can be applied to her scintillating execution of the treacherous B flat minor...All in all, a serious contender” Gramophone Magazine, August 2012

Gunther Rost (organ)

Chopin’s 24 Preludes Op.28 are written in the tradition of J S Bach and this work is particularly attractive to organists. The pieces have been adapted for organ, but Gunther Rost has not changed the musical texts. He performs on the Seifert organ in the Church of the Virgin Mary in Kevelaer which is the largest romantic German organ in the world.

This fourth instalment in the Naxos series of Rubinstein’s middle period Chopin recordings (after the two Piano Concertos on 8111296, the Polonaises on 8111346 and the Waltzes and Impromptus on 8111365) presents recordings from the two extreme ends of the period. The Sonata and Preludes were recorded in 1946 and first issued on 78 rpm discs, while the remaining selections were recorded on tape in 1957 and 1958. When the recording of the Preludes, Rubinstein’s only committal of the work to disc, was issued in the UK in 1955, Gramophone declared: ‘As a whole, this masterly performance is the best we have had so far of Chopin’s great work’.

Reissue Producer & Audio Restoration Engineer: Mark Obert-Thorn

“Here, in recordings dating from 1946-58, superbly remastered, is Rubinstein in all his early glory. Made long before the occasional sobriety that afflicted him later in life, all these performances have a swagger and brio...no living pianist would or could play or record with such abandon and personal commitment. This disc, the eighth in Naxos's bargain series of Rubinstein's Chopin, is beyond price.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2011
