Paul Lewis (piano)

Paul Lewis has just emerged from a vast Beethoven project: the complete sonatas and piano concertos, greeted all over the world as a landmark and completed in 2011 by the 'Diabelli Variations' – and now he returns to Franz Schubert, the other key focus of his concert career, the other pillar of his discography.

In this double album, three late sonatas are accompanied by two sets of short pieces brimming with inventiveness, the ' Impromptus' and 'Klavierstücke'.

“there were magical moments too, when Lewis's playing touched the sublime. His own Schubert odyssey is not to be missed by anybody who appreciates pianism of the highest caliber.” Barry Millington, London Evening Standard, concert review

“As Lewis's legions of admirers would expect, they are all superbly well played, with the same clarity and careful attention to every detail that is also lavished on the Four Impromptus of D899 and the three very late piano pieces D946. Unlike some of Lewis's more recent Beethoven performances, there's nothing over emphatic here... It's a fine, thoughtful set.” The Guardian, 3rd November 2011 ****

“Lewis’s mature insight into the workings and emotional characteristics of these works lends his interpretations particular power and depth, not just in the sonatas but also in the impromptus and the late Klavierstücke as well. Considered thought always seems to support and nourish Lewis’s performances, and here his instincts animate the music absorbingly.” The Telegraph, 18th November 2011

“Lewis’s Beethoven sonatas placed him firmly in the company of great contemporary pianists. In Schubert, too, his graceful phrasing and command of dynamic contrasts are equally impressive. His magisterial account of the C major Sonata (D840) challenges all other recorded interpretations with its combination of head and heart.” Sunday Telegraph, 20th November 2011

“I enjoyed every moment of these two superbly recorded discs...These are model accounts, in which Lewis, clearly a modest man, is intent on keeping himself out of the picture...I would like to hear more of him, and I'm sure Schubert would feel the same...When Schubert is being mysterious yet somehow simple, as in the unfinished so-called 'Reliquie' Sonata, Lewis's reticence is ideal. If he is open to criticism at all, it is only at the most exalted level.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2012 ****

“every now and again a recording comes along that makes you want to dance in the street, handing out copies to complete strangers. This is one of those instances...Time and again, you marvel at the confidence and sureness of Lewis's playing, combined with the finesse and musicality that he has always displayed. It's the kind of playing, in fact, where comparisons cease to matter....An undoubted contender for the 2012 Awards.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2012

“Particularly admirable is Lewis's differentiation between Schubert's idiosyncratic indications...[in D850] his playing seems to exude a quiet jauntiness, an unencumbered masculinity, observant, appreciative and filled with pleasure that, in its guileless utterance, is heart-stoppingly beautiful...I don't know of a more convincing or enjoyable performance [of D946]” International Record Review, February 2012

“Lewis’s playing is characterised by a wonderful range of tonal colours and subtle control of moods. There is a real poise and intimacy about his playing and while he allows the energetic and unruly passages to threaten the status quo, they never succeed...I have heard more dramatic performances, and also more ‘classical’ ones, but never anything so moving.” Chris O'Reilly, Presto Classical, 31st October 2011

Shai Wosner (piano)

Shai Wosner’s second release for ONYX after his critically acclaimed Brahms and Schoenberg debut disc (ONYX4055) of 2010. For his all Schubert programme Wosner has chosen two late sonatas. The monumental but unfinished two-movement torso D840, and the genial D850 written at a time in the composers life when he was without money, out of love, and involved with rows with his publishers. This work was one of the few sonatas to be published during his lifetime, and finally he earned 300 florins. Schumann described this sonata as ‘impetuous, overflowing’ It is one of Schubert’s happiest works, in start contrast to the stark and monolithic D840.

“Wosner's performance, with its extremes of dynamics, glistening pianissimos followed by thunderous fortissimos, certainly projects [a] sense of something epic, while making a link to late Beethoven, and to his last sonata, Op 111, in particular.” The Guardian, 29th September 2011 ***

“His playing of the German Dances has a muscularity and a lovely transparency, while the Hungarian Melody has an exquisite soulfulness. But what strikes the listener from the first few bars of the Sonata which opens this recording...is the aristocratic grace of Wosner's tone, and his expressive shades of staccato.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2011 *****

“With this recital Shai Wosner declares himself a Schubertian of unfaltering authority and character. Entirely modern in style (tonally lean and sharply focused, never given to easy or sentimental options), he relishes every twist and turn in the so-called Reliquie Sonata...Wosner rivets your attention at every point. He also shows a high degree of charm and affection in the German Dances and the Hungarian Melody” Gramophone Magazine, January 2012

Schubert - Piano Works Volume 12


Schubert:

Piano Sonata No. 17 in D major, D850

Adagio and Rondo in E major D506

12 Valses Nobles, D969


With the 12th and final installment of his grand tour of the piano works of Franz Schubert, the internationally renowned pianist Gerhard Oppitz now concludes his journey. Included here are the Sonata in D Major, D. 850, the Rondo in E Major D 506 and the 12 Waltzes D 969. Gerhard Oppitz understanding of the musical depth of Schubert's creations is without peer, all the more effective for its unobtrusive understatement. The "heavenly lengths" of this composer are a challenge for some artists, who transform transcendence into tedium but not Gerhard Oppitz. Under his hands, he is able to draw out the narrative logic of each large-scale Sonata while engaging the smaller pieces for what they are: jewels of pianistic invention.

Idyll and Abyss - Six Schubert Reminiscences


Benjamin Hochman (piano)

Israeli-American pianist Benjamin Hochman debuts on Avie with ‘Homage to Schubert’, pairing two contrasting Schubert Sonatas - D664 and D850 - with modern tributes by György Kurtág and Jörg Widmann.

On ‘Homage to Schubert’, Benjamin Hochman performs two contrasting Schubert Sonatas - the delicate and somewhat modest D664 in A major, and the brilliant and bold D850 in D major. Alongside modern-day tributes to the composer by György Kurtág, whose work lends its name to the recording's title, and the world-premiere recording of Jörg Widmann’s Idyll and Abyss: Six Schubert Reminiscences, which conjures a wide range of complex, volatile and mercurial emotions worthy of their namesake.

Winner of 2011’s prestigious Avery Fisher Career Grant, Hochman has been described by the New York Times as a “gifted, fast-rising artist”. Following a successful 2006 debut at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, he has gone on to perform with the New York Philharmonic, American Symphony Orchestra, Israel Philharmonic at Carnegie Hall, Chicago, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Houston, Seattle, San Francisco, Vancouver, New Jersey and Portland Symphonies. A graduate of the Curtis Institute of Music and the Mannes College of Music, his festival performances include Marlboro, Ravinia, Caramoor, Santa Fe, Bard, Gilmore, Vail and Vancouver. His performances have been broadcast on National Public Radio’s Young Artist Showcase and Performance Today, WNET’s Sunday Arts, and New York’s WQXR.

“The excellent and inquisitive Israeli-born pianist Benjamin Hochman pays homage to Schubert with vibrant and stylish accounts” New York Times, 25th December 2013
