Fantasie in C major, D760 'Wanderer'


Claudio Arrau could trace his musical lineage through his teacher Martin Krause to Liszt, Beethoven and Haydn themselves. Yet this probing and poetic artist was not afraid to admit that “Schubert is for me the ultimate problem of interpretation … There is the dramatic scope of Beethoven and the simplicity of Austrian folksong; wonderful lyric writing … and great chastity. And much of his music is filled with anxiety – so obvious when you know his language.”

First release on 2CD of all these recordings together and with a new 2016 digital 24-BIT remastering made especially for the release.

Carlos Kleiber

Schubert:

Fantasie in C major, D760 'Wanderer'


The rare and noble alliance of Sviatoslav Richter and Carlos Kleiber is formidably eloquent in making a case for Dvořák symphonically conceived Piano Concerto, here performed in the composer’s original version, rather than the adaptation made by Vilém Kurz. It is complemented by a work for solo piano, Schubert’s ‘Wanderer’ Fantasy, in which Richter again displays his masterly sense for musical architecture.

Jean-Rodolphe Kars (piano)

Indian-born, of Jewish-Viennese parents, raised in Paris, virtuoso pianist Jean-Rodolphe Kars converted, in 1976, to Catholicism and was baptised in 1977. Mysteriously, in 1981, he put an end to his career as a pianist, entering the priesthood in 1986. During the late-1960s and early 70s Kars made a few recordings for Decca, all of them gradually appearing on Decca Eloquence. They were, at the time of issue, highly praised for their imagination, colour and sensitivity, together with a great deal of panache and fearless virtuosity. Julius Katchen was one of Kars’s staunchest champions. This is the first issue on CD of Kars’s only Schubert recording comprising the great Wanderer Fantasy and two of the D.946 Klavierstücke.

“Kars produces some intense, thoughtful playing, especially in the most sinister moments of the Klavierstucke. The Wanderer Fantasy, though, could benefit from a lighter touch and less ponderous tempos.” BBC Music Magazine, April 2014 ***

Bertrand Chamayou, described by Gramophone as a “young French pianist of an impeccable pedigree”, is already firmly established as one of the most thoughtful and fascinating pianists of his generation. He has chosen Schubert – with the Wanderer-Fantaisie as the centrepiece – for his first release as an ERATO artist, and, in the course of 2014, the composer’s works will also feature in Chamayou’s recitals in Germany, Belgium, the US (New York), France and Austria.

Born in Toulouse, and a graduate of the Paris Conservatoire, Chamayou had ambitions to be a composer before the piano became his musical priority, and his questing and creative spirit is reflected in a diverse and eclectic repertoire that defies simple categorisation: he has built his reputation with the music of, among others, Liszt, Franck, Messiaen and contemporary composers. It is perhaps not surprising that he drew the attention of Pierre Boulez, a similarly unclassifiable musician, who has conducted Chamayou in concerto performances on a number of occasions.

Gramophone, putting Chamayou’s playing in a class with Alfred Cortot, has praised the way he … “harnesses power and depth alongside his sparkling virtuosity” and noted his “textual clarity, warm and affectionate expression and luminous piano tone”, while International Record Review singled him out for special praise among the younger pianists of today:

“These days, when unprecedented virtuosity is the common coin of an entire of young pianists, it is not easy to describe what precisely puts Chamayou head and shoulders above his peers. His mastery of the piano is flawless; is oneness with the instrument complete. As one listens to his performances, perfection of execution so quickly becomes part of the landscape that you almost forget it. Unblemished by obtrusions of ego or exhibitionism, what we hear seems some pure distillation of musical thought, some unadorned essence of poetic utterance, as though a fleeting ideal were captured and held aloft in all its radiance. When Chamayou plays, you believe every note.”

France’s leading music awards, Les Victoires de la Musique, have traced the trajectory of Chamayou’s career: in 2006 he was named as the year’s ‘Révélation’ (outstanding young talent), while 2011 brought him the prize for Solo Instrumentalist and 2012 for Best Recording.

In the concert hall, conductors with whom he has collaborated include Semyon Bychkov, Andris Nelsons, Leonard Slatkin, Neville Marriner, Michel Plasson, Stéphane Denève and Jérémie Rhorer, while among his chamber music partners are fellow ERATO artists Renaud Capuçon, Gautier Capuçon and Quatuor Ebène.

“Conceived by the pianist as a kind of “Schubertiade”, this affecting, beautifully performed disc conjures up those great occasions of convivial music-making, but on the assumption they could embrace the serious statement, too” Sunday Times, 2nd March 2014

“Chamayou's playing is consistently persuasive. The Wanderer-Fantasie is a bit heavyweight for my taste, although the Klavierstücke are superbly done, and there's also a wonderfully graceful performance of the D790 Deutsche Tänze.” The Guardian, 14th March 2014 ***

“[he] treats everything with equal respect and palpable affection. The Wanderer is a real test of any musician but Chamayou surmounts the work's sometimes unpianistic demands without ever leaving you, as some do, feeling as if you've been punched in the face. Instead he revels in its virtuosity and in the sheer variety of texture.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2014

“Chamayou's impressive reserves of articulation and firepower seem a touch stretched by the finale of the Wanderer Fantasy (compared, say, with Murray Perahia's recording), but elsewhere his tight-reined, skilfully paced virtuosity and musicianship excel, while his expressive touch in Liszt's Schubert song-transcriptions is state-of-the-art.” BBC Music Magazine, June 2014 ****

“his musically insightful, technically flawless playing can be confused with no-one else's. He exudes confidence without the slightest hint of egotism or ostentation...Ultimately the key characteristic of this recording is that indispensable element of great Schubert playing: a singing line capable of piercing the very depths of the heart.” International Record Review, May 2014

Schubert: Fantasie in C major, D760 'Wanderer', etc.

Schubert:

Fantasie in C major, D760 'Wanderer'

Schumann:

Fantasie in C major, Op. 17


“The cover shows Caspar David Friedrich's familiar The Wanderer above theSea of Fog. Pollini, on the other hand, is a wanderer in a transparent ether or crystalline light, and both these legendary performances, recorded in 1973 and beautifully remastered, are of a transcendental vision and integrity. In the Schubert his magisterial, resolutely unvirtuoso approach allows everything its time and place.
Listen to his flawlessly graded triple piano approach to the central Adagio, to his rock-steady octaves at 5'23" (where Schubert's merciless demand is so often the cause of confusion) or to the way the decorations in the Adagio are spun off with such rare finesse, and you may well wonder when you've heard playing of such an unadorned, unalloyed glory. Pollini's Schumann is no less memorable. Doubting Thomases on the alert for alternating touches of imperiousness and sobriety will be disappointed, for, again, Pollini's poise is unfaltering. The opening Moderato is sempre energico, indeed, its central Etwas langsamer is so sensitively and precisely gauged that all possible criticism is silenced. The coda of the central march (that locus classicus of the wrong note) is immaculate and in what someone once called the finale's 'shifting sunset vapour' Pollini takes us gently but firmly to the shores of Elysium. Here is a record that should grace every musician's shelf.”

This forty-ninth volume in Leslie Howard's all-encompassing Liszt series focuses mainly on Liszt's activities as an editor. This work was quite separate from his work as a transcriber (where he would recreate the music of others on his own terms). In his editions of Beethoven, Weber and Schubert we find a respect for the original text quite exceptional for the time. This did not, however, prevent Liszt from offering textual alternatives (always clearly differentiated from the original composition in the scores) either to modernize the piano writing (for example, in the finale of the 'Wanderer' Fantasy) or to make the work performable as a concert solo (the Konzertstück). These works offer a fascinating insight into Liszt's approach to the performance of the music of others and were until now a totally neglected area of his output. The disc is completed by two 'regular' transcriptions: the recently identified third version of Die Rose, and Weber's 'Jubel' Overture.
