Wonderful programme, seemingly excellent playing ( quartetophiles can comment ) by one Alma Quartet ( my first hearing of them and of the Schulhoffs) , July 11,2017, in the Kleine zaal of the Concertgebouw, Amsterdam :

http://www.radio4.nl/luister-concerten/concerten/6798/franse-strijkkwartet-muziek

• Strijkkwartet nr. 2 - compleet Erwin Schulhoff
• Strijkkwartet - compleet Claude Debussy
• Strijkkwartet nr. 8 “Dresden" - compleet Dmitri Sjostakovits
• Divertimento voor strijkkwartet, op.14 - deel IV, "Romanze. Ruhig fließend" Erwin Schulhoff
• Strijkkwartet - compleet Maurice Ravel

From Radio 4 :
“ Het Alma Quartet bestaat uit drie leden van het Koninklijk Concertgebouworkest en cellist Nitzan Laster van het Nederlands Philharmonisch Orkest. Hun eerste album bundelde alle kwartetmuziek van Erwin Schulhoff. “


The Shostakovich a bit reserved ? The Debussy stunning, the very brief Schulhoff Op.14 mov. a gem.

Very intimate, “ laid-back “ , but rich, wonderful performance of the Rach 2 at 2017 Proms by Behzod Abduraimov,well-supported by BBCNOW / Sondergard. Was not planning to listen to all , but did after hearing about the first half of the first mov. ( BTW, Abduraimov played a post-concerto encore, an appropriateTchaikovsky nocturne.) Bit of trouble hearing the woodwinds in 2nd mov. Great programme includes the symphonies No. 7 of Sibelius, No. 10 of Shostakovich , I’ve yet to hear.

Agreed, I felt the opening chords could have been played better and was concerned with initial tempii when the orchestra first entered, but got much better quickly, IMHO.

Abduraimov said his model was the Van Cliburn recording ( the studio on RCA with Reiner I believe ), one I also like , but I preferred Abduraimov here.

I heard only the Reger ( starts approx. 28:50 in ) , my first hearing of the work. Interesting, but not particularly memorable,12 brief pleasant, lyrical, pastoral pieces, seemingly well-played here.

A new Profil 10-CD box in good monaural sound features Richter in Schubert, mostly solo, with a few otherwise. Most/all of these are supposedly published here for the first time. Its number is PH 17005, and I can highly recommend the set.

Ralph van Raat waagt zich aan de ‘klassieke popmuziek’ van Radiohead in de sublieme arrangementen van de Amerikaan Christopher O’Riley. Ontdaan van divers instrumentarium, versterkers en effecten blijven de Radiohead-songs in hun meest uitgeklede vorm over. En wat blijkt: de nummers passen wonderbaarlijk goed in de tradities van de romantische en de impressionistische muziek.

http://www.medici.tv/en/concerts/jansen-maisky-thedeen-frost-debargue-play-shostakovich-messiaen/

From MediciTV :

“The concert opens with two of Shostakovich's Piano Trios. The composer was barely 17 when he composed the first trio, a work that is rarely performed nowadays. Then some 20 years later during World War II Shostakovich composed his second trio, a work dedicated to the memory of his friend Ivan I. Sollertinski (the musicologist, art historian, and literary/music critic) who had suddenly disappeared. Shostakovich's trios are followed by Messiaen's Quatuor pour la fin du temps ("Quartet for the End of Time"), a work he composed while captive in a German prisoner-of-war camp from 1940 to 1941. Inspired by the Bible's Book of Revelation, Messiaen references the Angel of the Apocalypse's announcement of the End of Time: ‘There shall be time no longer.’ “

Herbert Schuch , piano

Concert enregistré le 23 juillet 2017 Salle Pasteur au Corum, dans le cadre du festival de Radio France Montpellier

Scarlatti and CPE preparing us for the Beethoven. All in C , the Bach and Scarlatti K.37 preparing us for the 1st mov. of Op.111, Scarlatti K.398 for the Op.111 “Arietta” ( some remarkable “ echoes “ in the Scarlatti ) , yet Schuch making a case Beethoven paying inward, nostalgic hommage to the past in Op.111, even while looking “forward.” Exemplary playing as usual from Schuch. Not to be missed !


Carl-Philipp Emmanuel Bach
Sonate en ut mineur Wq 65:31, H 121

Domenico Scarlatti
Sonate en ut mineur K 37
Sonate en ut Majeur K 398

Ludwig van Beethoven

About 48 minutes in :

There was a rave review in a Dutch newspaper this week of Alexei
Lubimov's recent recording of CPE Bach works on a tangent piano, a cd
called Tangere. As it's on the ECM label, pretty much the only way to
hear it is to order the cd, I think, since ECM doesn't go in for Spotify
or YouTube or other online (let alone free) distribution methods.

Hah, it's not even listed on their website yet:
https://www.ecmrecords.com/search-advanced/lubimov

It's still to appear:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B06XV3VMDN

Weird that they already published the review then.

Rostropovich in 1975 live.

From BBC Radio 3 :

“ In 1974, Russian cellist Rostropovich was exiled from Russia for his outspoken political views against the Soviet government and his support for other high-profile dissidents such as the composer Shostakovich and the writer Solzhenitsyn. This concert at St Cuthbert's Church in Edinburgh marks his appearance the following year at the 1975 Festival with three Suites for solo cello by JS Bach.”

JS Bach: Sarabande from Suite No 2 in D minor, BWV 1008
JS Bach: Suite No 3 in C, BWV 1009
JS Bach: Suite No 6 in D, BWV 1012

Rostropovich apparently referred to the 6th as “ a symphony for the cello.” I think I enjoy No.3 more.

Cd arrived , lived up to its great reviews at Amazon-US. Rich, 2 at a time for me. Per the liner notes with which I also agree:

" In fact, his experimentation with rapid mood change, harmonic surprise,rhythmic variety , and rhetorical outburst anticipates in some ways the Romanticsim of the nineteenth century even more then the style of his immediate followers in the eighteenth ( Beethoven, for one, was highly influenced by Emanuel Bach,and critics pointed out the composer's effect on Schumann as well.) The juxtaposition of these traits with elements reminiscent of Bach's high-baroque heritage, however, made his works sit uneasily with many of his contemporaries.Even today, his keyboard music is rarely performed. not because the pieces are unworthy ( they are, in fact astonishing), but because to render them successfully requires a willingness to take risks with tempo, rhythm,articulation and dynamics."

Giovanni Bottesini’s 2nd Concerto ( with piano reduction ) played in 2012 (?) by Rinat Ibragimov, LSO principal double bass emeritus. Whole work ( 3 movs.) about 14 minutes. Bottesini a friend of Verdi per the text. The bassist is the father of violinist Alina Ibragimov. Not sure if Rinat is playing any longer. His recording is apparently OOP ; at least not at Amazon-US.

Per BBC :

“ Ivan Hewett introduces a concert of new music for piano given earlier this summer at St John's Church, Waterloo, as part of the (2017) Waterloo Festival. The concert was curated by 840, a London-based experimental music concert series. Zubin Kanga, who joins Ivan in the studio, performs works by Laurence Crane, Tim Parkinson, Bryn Harrison, Nicholas Peters, Sergei Zagny, Kate Moore, Alex Nikiporenko, Andrew Hamilton and himself. 840 was founded in 2014 by the composers Alex Nikiporenko and Nicholas Peters, and each event focuses on a particular instrument or chamber instrumentation. Also tonight, the second of four archive features celebrating the 40th edition this year of the Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival. Andrew Kurowski talks to Robert Worby about the festival's 'Electronic Soundworlds' of the 1980 and 90s, including Iannis Xenakis's Taurhiphanie, and Luigi Nono's La Lontananza Nostalgica Utopica Futura, recorded by the BBC in 1995 and performed by Irvine Arditti (violin) and André Richard (sound dif.).”

For Saint- Saens fans, a Saint-Saens fest, 2 of my fav works of his or in fact in CM, the Violin Concerto # 3 going back to my first introductions to CM, the Piano Concerto # 5 a more recently acquired taste :

Joshua Bell at 2017 Verbier Festival:

https://www.rtbf.be/auvio/detail_lunch-concert?id=2247674

Cedric Tiberghien at 2017 Proms :

https://www.francemusique.fr/emissions/le-concert-du-soir/les-siecles-et-cedric-tiberghien-interpretent-saint-saens-delibes-et-cesar-franck-au-proms-2017-36072

Bell milks the VC too much, my preference still the more elegant Francescatti I have on a 50’s Columbia masterworks lp. Tiberghien almost makes a case for placing the PC among the “ great “ Romantic concertos.


Pray for Texas. And plenty other places across the World as well , Yemen, Darfur, North Korean “camps”, et.al.

You're welcome. Perhaps a little ragged at the very end, but live of course and excellent overall.Apparently Andsnes is playing the #4 often this season. The slow mov. at times seems as if it could have been composed by Grieg. The rarely-heard Sibelius "Romanza " encore was a treat ; I once tried ( and failed ) to learn that piece.

Recorded piano sound here not complimentary to her, but “ticket price” good.

Per Wiki :

“ Haskil died ( in Dec.,1960) from injuries received through a fall at the staircase of a Brussels train station. She was due to play at a concert with Arthur Grumiaux the following day. She was aged 65.An esteemed friend of Haskil, Charlie Chaplin, described her talent by saying , ‘ In my lifetime I have met three geniuses; Professor Einstein, Winston Churchill, and Clara Haskil. I am not a trained musician but I can only say that her touch was exquisite, her expression wonderful, and her technique extraordinary.’ In a 2013 interview, Pope Francis mentioned Haskil as one of his favorite musicians, especially when performing Mozart.”

Per the BBC presenter, the PC was premiered in 1933 ; Bartok played it at the 1936 Proms with Sir Henry Wood.

Opening the programme an interesting new work , Sinfonia (for Orbiting Spheres ) , by Missy Mazzoli , another young American I believe.

I'm entirely unfamiliar with the performer (Belder). Have you heard
anything of his?
No. I'm not a pianoforte fan,anyway.
Heard a Philip Hayes keyboard concerto on WFMT
recently, but can't find it on their schedule.
It sounded like a piano, but might have been a pianoforte.
-->Meant to say 'might have been a fortepiano.'

Here is a hyperion recording of his six concertos for organ,
harpsichord, or fortepiano, with samples of his #4 concerto in
A major. The fortepiano sounds a bit tinny, but not too bad.

http://www.hyperion-records.co.uk/dw.asp?dc=W9685_66700

The whole recording of the A major is on YouTube (and it doesn't
seem to be the hyperion), but the sound is even less clear.

What I heard I believe sounded much closer to a piano (or maybe
an actual pianoforte!)

There was a rave review in a Dutch newspaper this week of Alexei
Lubimov's recent recording of CPE Bach works on a tangent piano, a cd
called Tangere.
C.P.E. Bach ? Solo Keyboard Music, Vol. 33
BIS-2213 | CD EAN 7318590022139 TT: 69'57
Miklós Spányi plays the third collection ?fÌr Kenner und Liebhaber?
Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach: ?fÃŒr Kenner und Liebhaber?, Collection 3
Rondo No.1 in E major, Wq57/1 (H 265)
Sonata No.1 in A minor, Wq57/2 (H 247)
Rondo No.2 in G major, Wq57/3 (H 271)
Sonata No.2 in D minor, Wq57/4 (H 208)
Rondo No.3 in F major, Wq57/5 (H 266)
Sonata No.3 in F minor, Wq57/6 (H 173)
Canzonetta with 6 Variations, Wq118/8 (H 275)
Miklós Spányi, tangent piano
The first 32 volumes (all with Spanyi) are at MDT for $13.42, but they
occasionally have a BIS sale. BRO has four of them (all, however, on
clavichord) at $6 each, and sometimes more tend to show up there. (I
believe only a few of the 33 are on tangent piano, most on clavichord.)
I've not picked up any of the solo CD's, but have enjoyed several of
the concerto disks.

A listening evening for good cheese , good bread, and much cheap shiraz. Both singers in good voice as far as a pianophile can tell.

Not to be missed !

Actually it's not so much that it's boring as that his tone is just so ugly. Those passages which call for gossamer sparkle and all that ethereal mist just sound so....metallic and flat in his hands. Really disappointing. I wouldn't say that tonal beauty is Debargue's preeminent quality anyway, but it really shows up quite poor here. This piece isn't his work at this stage of his life.
