Antonio Pompa-Baldi, piano.

Had not heard him for quite some time, interesting programme,Hummel always a treat, one of my fav Liszt works, not heard the Grieg in piano version ( the orchestral is better ), nor ever the Piana work. Rubinstein used to play the Poulenc.Marvelous,spontaneous playing here:

Enregistré le 12/01/2019 à la Broadcasting House de Brême

https://www.rtbf.be/auvio/detail_concert?id=2641900

Johann Nepomuk Hummel : Sonate No. 2 en Mi bémol Majeur, op. 13

Franz Liszt : Ballade No. 2 en Si bémol Majeur, S. 171

Edvard Grieg : Suite Holberg , op. 40

Roberto Piana - Fantaisie sur des chants napolitains

Francis Poulenc : Napoli, FP 40 - Les Chemins de l'amour

Astor Piazzolla : Oblivion (bis)

Edvard Grieg : Nocturne en Do Majeur extrait de la Suite lyrique, op. 54/4 (bis)

A bio from Cleveland Institute of Music,where he is a faculty member :
“ Born and raised in Foggia, Italy, Antonio Pompa-Baldi won the Cleveland International Piano Competition in 1999 and embarked on a career that continues to extend across five continents. He also won a silver medal at the 2001 Van Cliburn Competition, as well as a bronze medal at the 1998 Marguerite Long Competition in Paris. The New York Times described his playing as “meltingly beautiful.”
Pompa-Baldi founded the Todi International Music Masters Festival, of which he is artistic director and faculty member, and sits on the juries of the most prestigious piano competitions in the world.”

Pianist Saskia Giorgini . I heard a bit of her 2015 Chopin Competition prelim and was impressed.

A 75-minute, 2019 recital note-worthy for a solo piano version of “ Les Preludes” ( my first hearing), a wonderful “Aida” transcription I had long forgotten from my Jerome Lowenthal RCA lp , and impressive playing overall, a programme with some fireworks, but emphasizing the lyrical, the pianist fully up to both challenges.

Google translator :

" Tonight's concert, recorded at the Liszt Festival in Raiding, Austria, will allow us to hear, in recital, the Italian pianist Saskia Giorgini in works by Liszt: some extracts from the Years of Pilgrimage II, transcriptions of airs from 'Operas:' Lucia di Lammermoor 'by Donizetti, "Aïda" and "Rigoletto" by Verdi. An arrangement for solo piano, by Karl Klauser, of the Symphonic Poem n ° 3: "Les Préludes". Saskia Giorgini is Laureate, in 2016, of the International Mozart Competition in Salzburg in 2016, with a Special Prize for the best interpretation of the imposed work, she is one of the artists "Bösendorfer". in chamber music, she has already performed, among others, with Ian Bostridge and Janine Jansen. She begins her Recital this evening with the Sonets de Patrarque, 47 and 123, then Réminiscences by Lucia de Lammermoor. At the end of the Recital, his "Encore" will take us a few minutes from Liszt, with the waltz Du und Du, op. 367, arrangement, Ernö Dohnányi.'

Snake eyes from Putin during that rendering of Russian anthem!

Wow that was bad

For a minute I was thinking it was even the wrong piece

But I was thinking back to the banal anthem from CIS days

Then remembered they brought back Alexandrov's old music from Sov U days

From BBC Radio 3 :
“Every weekday in June, as part of BBC Arts’ Culture in Quarantine initiative, Radio 3 broadcasts a live Lunchtime Concert from London's Wigmore Hall. Taking place without an audience present, this series of twenty recitals - the first live concert broadcasts since the start of lockdown - features some of the UK's finest instrumentalists and singers in music from the 16th century to the present day.Today Martin Handley introduces cellist Steven Isserlis and pianist Mishka Rushdie Momen in music by Beethoven, Schumann and Faure. “

Beethoven: Cello Sonata in F major, Op.5 No.1
Schumann: Romances, Op 94
Faure: Cello Sonata No 1

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m000jw8k

I heard only the brief Faure ( at about 40 mins. in, my first hearing of the work ) , per Isserlis one of the 2 greatest cello sonatas of the 20th Century, the other he feels being Faure’s Cello Sonata # 2. The dark slow mov. is quite something, but I was taken more with the sunlit final mov. I was not aware Faure was deaf his last years. Will have to hear # 2 now.

Isserlis , with Jeremy Denk,playing the Faure 2nd Cello Sonata , Op.117, ca.2015 , at NYC 92nd St. Y, live video ( again, my first hearing ):



THIS is the one to hear if only hearing one of the Faure, a recording of which I will acquire ! Intense,unique sound world, yet transparency.

With respect, Steve, Isserlis & Denk are fine artists but this performance is just OK, not much more. Try this one, which gets the sonorities right and is *really* transparent: https://www.prestomusic.com/classical/products/7957834--faure-the-works-for-cello-and-piano. Or this one just because I love Perenyi's playing: https://www.prestomusic.com/classical/products/8053225--chopin-faure-sonatas-for-cello-and-piano.

Andrea Lucchesini, piano

Enregistré le 28/10/2019 à l'Auditorium, Parco della Musica, Rome

Robert Schumann - Papillon, op. 2
- Carnaval, op. 9
- Trois Romances, op. 28
- Fantaisie en Do Majheur, op. 17

Ludwig Van Beethoven : Bagatelle en Sol Majeur, op. 126/5 (bis)
Frédéric Chopin : Étude No. 12 en do mineur ('Révolutionnaire'), op. 10 (bis)
Robert Schumann : Träumerei,extrait des Scènes d'enfants, op. 15' (bis)

Perhaps a bit heavy-handed or strident at times, but overall inspired, intense playing, some original thoughts especially in “Papillons”, made me glad I heard these warhorse Schumanns again.

John Wilson conducts the BBC SSO in music by Britten, Copland and Bernstein from the 2018 Aldeburgh Festival with soloists Cedric Tiberghien and Robert Murray.

Britten: Sinfonia da requiem
Britten (arr. Matthews): Seven Sonnets of Michelangelo
Copland: Quiet City
Bernstein: Symphony No 2 'The Age of Anxiety'

I heard only the Bernstein starting about 1:22:00 in.Tiberghein discusses the Bernstein work, here the second time he’d played it.Not a work I connect with, but I have not read the Auden poem yet.

Encore: Richter and Britten playing Schubert’s 4-hand Fantasy live at Aldeburgh,1965.

June 18,2020, at Muziekhaven,Zaandam,pianist Natalia Milstein, Beethoven Sonatas 16,27,23. I had forgotten how charming is 16, and while I dont connect much with 27 period, I found her unpretentious “Appassionata” enjoyable. Mature playing for a 25-year old facing huge challenges in these times. Protoge of Goerner and Schiff : https://www.nathaliamilstein.com/biography

Had not heard Piotr Anderszewski recently, and my first hearing of the Schumann,here at Schwetzingen Festival, 2019 :

https://www.rtbf.be/auvio/detail_concert?id=2649718

Bach: WTC, Book 2 ( five )
Schumann: Sieben Klavierstucke in Fughettenform,Op.126 (echoes of Prokofieff in the sixth stucke , or my cheap shiraz ?)
Beethoven: Piano Sonata No.31,Op.110 ( with 109,my 2 favs, very well paced final mov.here)

Kirill Petrenko, Berlin Phil.,Berlin,Feb.,2020, playing Rachmaninoff’s arguably “best” work, the Symphonic Dances, about 60 minutes into the broadcast.Marvelous !

Cedric Tiberghien, a pianist I follow, plays Schumann’s Op.17 Fantasy on an 1840 Streicher at 2018 Aldeburgh Festival.I’m once again convinced another composer who was either frustrated the music he heard in his ear could not be fully reproduced in his day ; or who would have been surprised but grateful for what the Steinway D does for his creation.

Martin Helmschen, a young pianist I follow more now than earlier in his career, wonderful, themed programme, extraordinary playing.I think my first hearing of the Bach/Reger and no doubt first hearing of impressive Liszt S.185.

Pianophiles , note bene : Not to be missed,IMHO.

Enregistré le 24/05/2019 au Mozart Hall, Schwetzingen

Johann Sebastian Bach - 5 Chorale Preludes : Nun komm der Heiden Heiland, BWV 659
Wachet auf, ruft uns die Stimme, BWV 645
Nun freut euch, lieben Christen g'mein, BWV 734
Herzlich thut mich verlangen, BWV 727
Nun danket alle Gott, BWV 657
1-3: arr. Ferruccio Busoni - 4-5: arr. Max Reger

Franz Liszt - Lento, extrait de 'Weinen, Klagen, Sorgen, Zagen, d'après J.S. Bach, S. 179'
- St François d'Assise: la prédication aux oiseaux, S. 175/1 ( Messiaen -like )
- Vexilla regis prodeunt, S. 185

César Franck - Prelude, Chorale and Fugue en si bémol mineur, FWV 21 (!)

Olivier Messiaen : Extraits (10) de 'Vingt regards sur l'Enfant Jésus' (Holy cow !)

Encores ( hardly needed ) in keeping with the programme : Bach/Busoni “Ich ruf zu Dir,Herr Jesu Christ” ; “Prophet Bird”, from Schumann’s “Waldscenen”.

Alexandra Stychkina, age 15 ! ( Russia) in a recital of Debussy’s Images,Book 1 ; Bach’s 15 Inventions,BWV 772-786 ; and Liszt’s Variations on a Theme of Bach,S.180. (You can start with her.) Perhaps a bit quick at times in the Debussy, possible small spot of bother in “Reflets” , but very mature, polished playing.

Youngish Dutch pianist Hannes Minnaar plays the “Goldberg” Variations and the Manneke work July 7,2020 at Grote Kerk, Naarden. My first knowledge of composer Manneke, a very attractive 12 minute work.The Bach was very pleasant, warm, nimble,romantic, nothing new but kept my attention even though initially I was not sure I was in a mood to hear the work at all.

Per a YT Comment the song is "Zoriu Byut (Reveille)" by Russain composer Georgy Sviridov:



Apparently this is part 6 of larger work, all of which is apparently at YT. I'm not normally a big fan of this genre, but will explore this one further.

Glad I did explore.

Here is the entire performance, a section of which I posted just earlier. YT caption just says:

хор мальчиков хорового училища им.М.И.Глинки (СПб)
(Boys Choir of the Choir College named after M.I. Glinka (St. Petersburg)) per Google translator

Video (1) is just an invocation by a priest ,no singing. If you start with (2) here, YT will autoplay the rest to end,although you may have to click a typical start arrow in middle of a screen. About 45 minutes.Recommended. I do not know if this is one work or several, although I assume,seems one.The composer Sviridov does have a brief Wiki page , and there appear to be several recordings of his works at Amazon-US. Perhaps Russian-speakers here can assist ; TIA.Great soloists in 5,6,7,8.

Geyorgy Sviridov (1915–1998): The Bells of Dawn

Text: Alexander Pushkin (1799-1837)

The Bells of dawn... from my hands
Ancient Dante tome falls out,
On my lips an unfinished poem
Falls silent —
The spirit is far away.
A familiar, alive sound,
How often did you ring out
There, where so long ago
I quietly grew up.
The Bells of Dawn.

Video (1) is just an invocation by a priest ,no singing. If you start with (2) here, YT will autoplay the rest to end,although you may have to click a typical start arrow in middle of a screen. About 45 minutes.Recommended. I do not know if this is one work or several, although I assume,seems one.The composer does have a brief Wiki page , and there appear to be several recordings of his works at Amazon-US. Perhaps Russian-speakers here can assist ; TIA.Great soloists in 5,6,7,8.

That bass soloist in (8) is incredible. How old is he? 16?
Unfortunately too young to play Osmin, Boris or the Grand Inquisitor
on stage - well maybe with the right makeup ...

Didn't Ravel also transcribe versions for one and two
pianos? There's also a more recent two piano version. Can't
remember who did it.

Yes Ravel did, I plan to hear those this am as I believe also on YT, and I posted the more recent 2-piano some time ago here, cant recall at the moment by whom, but at YT as well.

I remember a performance by young pianist Sergio Tiempo with a second pianist. Maltempo deserves a medal for his efforts here. I’d have to say though that a large part of the greatness of Daphnis is its spectacular Technicolor orchestration. Add to that the wordless chorus! Whereas La Valse works in the piano version, for me the sonic opulence of Daphnis gets lost in translation.

And it’s “Daphnis”, not “Daphne” as I posted.

Pianist Claire-Marie Le Guay (studio) playing Ravel’s for solo piano

Pianists Akiko Yamamoto,Vyacheslav Gryaznov (live video) playing Gryaznov’s for 2 pianos

I prefer Maltempo's.If I read the French correctly at the solo YT, Ravel wrote the solo piano first , the orchestral couple years later.John Gavin has a point as " La Valse " is a more percussive work.

I really was not ready to hear the PIT PC #1 again just yet, but pianist Pavel Kolesnikov is an interesting pianist I follow, so decided to hear his take on the warhorse. Glad I did. Interesting right from the start and throughout. Credit Davis for respecting the approaches. About 21:00 in to this BBCR3 broadcast :

Per BBC: “ As part of BBC Arts' Culture in Quarantine initiative, Scotland's most distinguished pianist Steven Osborne performs Schubert's last piano sonata live from City Halls, Glasgow, in this first series of concerts since lockdown. “ (July 15 I believe.)

Schubert: Impromptu D935 No.1
Schubert: Sonata D960

Encore : “ I Love You,Porgy “ , Gershwin

https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/m000ktdg

Not much “new” here , but the unaffected playing of the “old” worth hearing, Osborne’s program a purposeful choice.

Who knows, but perhaps Hurwitz means Kolesnikov's subtlety and sensitivity are more conscious than intuitive, an ABM vs. Cherkassky ? Listen to the very opening of the Tchaikovsky PC I linked.

Debussy, Violin Sonata,L.140
Shostakovich,Piano Trio # 1, Op.8
Brahms,Viola Sonata, Op.120, #1 ( I did not hear ; no clarinet )
Brahms, Piano Quartet #1, Op.25

Evian, France, July 9,2020,with audience. ( Not possible in USA,of course,thanks to Trump,GOP,libertarians,alt.right wack jobs.)

Alexandre Kantorow,piano; Liya Petrova,violin;Antoine Tamestit,viola;Bruno Philippe,cello.

Kantorow got a workout. ( But then, he had to play the Tchaikovsky PC # 2 ( uncut) followed by Brahms’ PC # 2 at the 2019 Tchaikovsky Competition Finals with about 10 minutes between.) Tamestit seems to have enjoyed these youngsters ( a bit of struggle in the Andante, but… ), all of whom are rising stars I’ll follow. I think I may prefer Brahms’ piano quartets to his symphonies.Great performances all here.

Bad video sync issues, but playing surmounts ! You may need to sign up for a free account if dont have one ; easy to do.

Is that a joke? Last I looked I was in the U.S. and had no
trouble connecting. Let's say, for the saKKE OF argument,
that it is unavailable in the U.S. Why would you attribute
that to the Right, let alone libertarians?

Obviously , as I'm obviously in the US,too, and I obviously had no troubling connecting, either, as I obviously watched it and obviously I would not have posted it here if no USA RMCR'ers could see it. The reference was obviously to the " live audience " aspect of the concert.

"Sniping " is the least that is necessary as the virus runs rampant across defenseless, in-denial, "what me worry " , no-mask, worst response in the World, USA.In fact, much stronger language appropriate for our criminal "leaders."

There's an orchestral piece by Sviridov called Triptych that I like quite a bit. Nothing unusual technically, perhaps even conventional, but good. He shows a more ethereal style here, writing for voices.

I heard only the brief Faure ( at about 40 mins. in, my first hearing of the work ) , per Isserlis one of the 2 >greatest cello sonatas of the 20th Century, the other he feels being Faure’s Cello Sonata # 2.
http://youtu.be/-osqH-PzF9s
THIS is the one to hear if only hearing one of the Faure, a recording of which I will acquire ! Intense,unique sound world, yet transparency.
With respect, Steve, Isserlis & Denk are fine artists but this performance is just OK, not much more. Try this one, which gets the sonorities right and is *really* transparent: https://www.prestomusic.com/classical/products/7957834--faure-the-works-for-cello-and-piano. Or this one just because I love Perenyi's playing: https://www.prestomusic.com/classical/products/8053225--chopin-faure-sonatas-for-cello-and-piano.
AC
Any idea when the Perenyi was recorded?
Date of issue was 1973 but I don't know the recording date. Sorry.

OK. Thanks. That's more than I knew. One of my (many) pet

Martin Helmchen, a pianist I now eagerly follow, after not being impressed with some his younger efforts I was able to hear ( he’s still young ). Here an example of why I now follow.One of the better of this PC I have heard,especially first, last mov. Wonderful cadenzas (by whom ?) :

Mozart PC # 22 , K.482,with Haitink,Orchestra Mozart Bologna, not sure date,think 2019:

https://www.rtbf.be/auvio/detail_concert?id=2647188

Perfume collector pianist Pavel Kolesnikov,then 27,at the 2016 Hay Festival in England,with an interesting programme.All very attractive works, the Bach Sonata a gem, been years since I last heard the delightful Beethoven, all very well played.
Scarlatti: Sonata in C minor, K84
Scarlatti: Sonata in B flat major, K331
Scarlatti: Sonata in E minor, K198
Scarlatti: Sonata in A major, K322
Scarlatti: Sonata in A major, K39

CPE Bach: Sonata in E minor, Wq 59/1
Beethoven: Sonata No 10 in G major, Op.14 No.2
https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/b07cyl38
Great. Pavel is a bit of a Shura if that makes sense. Wonderfully imaginative and surprising pianist.
