Alexandre Kantorow (piano)

Alexandre Kantorow released his first disc for BIS in 2016, performing Liszt’s piano concertos to critical acclaim: ‘I’m here to tell you that Alexandre Kantorow is Liszt reincarnated’ wrote one impressed reviewer, in Fanfare Magazine. Not yet 20 years old, the French pianist and son of violinist and conductor Jean-Jacques Kantorow now explores his Russian roots, in a recital that opens with Rachmaninov’s weighty First Piano Sonata, inspired by Goethe’s play Faust, and its three main characters, the scholar Faust, his beloved Gretchen and Mephistopheles, the Devil’s emissary. The nostalgic intimacy of Méditation and Passé lointain, from Tchaikovsky’s Op. 72 collection, offers respite from the drama, but tension returns with Guido Agosti’s virtuosic piano arrangement of three extracts from Stravinsky’s Firebird.

Kantorow closes his Russian recital with Mily Balakirev’s ‘oriental fantasy’ Islamey, one of the iconic works of the piano literature. Fiendishly difficult, the piece famously inspired Ravel to write something that would be even harder to play (his Gaspard de la nuit). A committed Russian nationalist, Balakirev himself found the inspiration for Islamey during a journey to the Caucasus when he was introduced to the local music tradition.

The mythical "Russian Seasons" organised by Serge Diaghilev were a huge success in Paris in 1909. New musical and choreographic works emerged and built a new era in the field of dance , music and painting in France . On this disc, which contains everything from Tchaikovsky to Prokofiev and Stravinsky , the listener can follow this evolution through the best extracts of the Ballets Russes.

“A delicious selection of transcribed Russian ballet music, performed by Elena Rozanova with plenty of colour, flair, affection and heroic virtuosity. Immensely enjoyable.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2014 ****

“It's party time. Everyone, not least the radiantly smiling conductor, is bent on enjoying themselves...This is among the most thoughtful and poetic accounts of the Concerto that I've heard. There's nothing superficial or preconceived...It is this performance which gives the DVD its raison d'etre, one which in half a century will be viewed with the same kind of interest as film of Moiseiwitsch, Cortot et al is viewed today.” Gramophone Magazine, December 2012

and adaptations of works by Ravel, Borodin, Luigini and Schumann


This collection has been prepared with three main aims: firstly to prove that the so-called boundaries between light and classical music are not as insurmountable as some people seem to imagine; secondly to illustrate that many composers, who may usually be associated with more serious works, also had their lighter moments; and thirdly to offer several examples of the tasteful way in which arrangers of the 20th century adapted the classics to make them more instantly appealing to their audience. For many years such ‘tampering with the classics’ was banned by the BBC in Britain, although commercial recordings could be freely purchased. However a lack of broadcasts obviously affected sales, which partly explains why such recordings were more common in the United States than in Britain. Among the leading US musicians who often strayed into classical territory were David Carroll, Andre Kostelanetz, Percy Faith, Clebanoff and even Ray Conniff. They are joined by Charles Williams, Angela Morley and other familiar figures on the UK scene.
