Alexander Gavrylyuk and Vladimir Ashkenazy with the Sydney Symphony take on three piano concertos by Sergey liehageludedownfumetheamegilern.coinfo concerto has its own character and the musicians convey Prokofiev's wide variety of emotions. In the stately beginning of Piano Concerto No. 1, one can really hear the lower strings contrasted with the high, tinkling piano (though the middle register instruments could have. Out of all the recordings of Tchaikovsky's great piano concerto no.1, two stand out for me. One is Ronan O'Hora/James Judd/RPO recorded in , and the other is a CD made in with the amazing Martha Argerich/Claudio Abbado and the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra(DG)/5(62). That the entire Piano Concerto No. 1 consisted of just a single movement, as opposed to the typical three movements, was already unusual, but Prokofiev further “violated” the conventional patterns of thematic development as he juggled, shaped, and reshaped numerous musical fragments to suit his own pleasure. Moreover, he was more interested in rhythm than in melody, and in his hands the.
Although the Soviet pianist Rudolf Kehrer — boasted a substantial recorded legacy, his neglect in the West calls Piano Concerto No. 1 (Second Movement) - Sergei Prokofiev - Simply (CD) some explanation. It's a story of being in the wrong place at the wrong time.
He hailed from Tiflis in Georgia, a descendant of emigrants from Swabia in south-western Germany. In the s he'd established a reputation as a piano prodigy, but sadly all of this was to come to an abrupt end with the outbreak of war. In the early days of conflict, as an ethnic German, he was deported to Kazakhstan. For the duration of his exile he was forbidden the use of a piano and fashioned his own dummy keyboard out of a piece of wood, thus enabling him to keep his fingers in shape.
It was only after Stalin's death that he was able to resume his studies at Tashkent Conservatoire in By his concert career was launched after winning the All-Union Contest in Moscow, Piano Concerto No.
1 (Second Movement) - Sergei Prokofiev - Simply (CD), but his German credentials kindled much suspicion from the authorities and he was forbidden to perform in the West. It was only in more enlightened times that he was afforded the freedom to travel, and he did Piano Concerto No. 1 (Second Movement) - Sergei Prokofiev - Simply (CD) that, giving masterclasses worldwide and securing a post at the Vienna Academy of Music. Hardly any of his expansive discography has made it to silver disc, with most confining itself to Melodiya LPs that have had minimal circulation in the West.
The slow movement is poetically tender. Kerer's pianism in Mozart is dexterous and polished. The slow movement reveals more gossamer moments, but the finale never really takes flight and remains earthbound. More of a success is the traversal of Brahms' Piano Concerto No. It's Olympian in stature and Kerer gives an Piano Concerto No. 1 (Second Movement) - Sergei Prokofiev - Simply (CD) account, with Rozhdestvensky ensuring that the dramas are played out through all three movements.
Kerer's Liszt Concerto No. Dubrovsky and his Moscow forces complement the pianist fully. The inclusion of Rachmaninoff's omnipresent Second Concerto in this collection proves yet again that there's no show without Punch. A highlight Piano Concerto No. 1 (Second Movement) - Sergei Prokofiev - Simply (CD) the collection must be Prokofiev's one-movement Piano Concerto No. There's potent dynamic thrust in the fast sections, with beguiling subtlety in the slow. The Uzbekistan composer Georgy Moushel taught at the conservatory in Tashkent when Kerer was a student there, hence the most likely explanation why his Second Piano Concerto was taken up.
I'm thankful for this recording as precious little else of this composer's music has been recorded. He had a prodigious output including 4 ballets, 3 symphonies, 34 chamber works, vocal works and some film music.
It makes for an expensive rarity, and it's to be hoped that some enterprising label, perhaps Doremi, will transfer it to CD one day. The Second Piano Concerto dates from and is cast in two movements. In the opener, harsh assertive elements contrast with passages of sweeping lush lyricism. The second movement is animated and conversational in character, with the piano's confident narrative answered by some expertly drafted orchestration.
Kondrashin is alert to every push and pull. The recording sounds fabulous for Two compositions by Georgy Sviridov also represent Kerer's foray into less well-known territory. Sviridov studied Piano Concerto No. 1 (Second Movement) - Sergei Prokofiev - Simply (CD) Shostakovich at the Leningrad Conservatory, and the latter's influence is there for all to hear in the Trio for Violin, Cello and Piano. Into his works the composer incorporated carefully chosen elements of Russian culture, where folk music is fused with modern musical forms.
The performance dates fromand the pianist is joined by violinist Viktor Pikaizen and cellist Lev Evgrafov. Piano Concerto No. Rhapsody on a theme by Paganini, Op. Recorded at Bad Homburg, Germany - September Review by akiralx May 13, 7 of 7 found this review helpful. The performances here are enjoyable if hardly revelatory.
Haas is an aristocratic soloist and plays the C minor concerto with sovereign splendour throughout, although occasionally his handling of certain echt-Rachmaninovian moments of magic is a tad aloof.
I have slight reservations about whether Inbal and his Frankfurt Radio orchestra are truly within the idiom: they play well but turn to Ashkenazy's conducting of the Philharmonia for Helene Grimaud on Teldec, and one enters another world of powerful and deep Slavonic melancholy.
That CD is my top digital recommendation and it can sit alongside other famous accounts like Richter's on DG. The performance of the Paganini Rhapsody is better, with some imaginative playing from soloist and orchestra, particularly at the end of the work. Haas' interpretation is more ruminative than others, for example Earl Wild's fabulous version with Horenstein which clocks in several minutes quicker than this one.
Sonically these recordings have come up very well. The sound is very natural, with powerful bass - but detail is fine. The piano sound is clear, rich and full, and reasonably well integrated within the sound picture, almost too 'present' at times. As far as multi-channel goes the soundstage is wide with no sonic 'gap' from the absence of a centre channel the disc is encoded in 4.
I turned the rears down a few dB and that improved matters remarkably in the Rhapsody. In SACD stereo the wide soundstage is only slightly reduced but some depth and detail is lost: the recording sounds clearly 'flatter' - but still pretty remarkable.
For a 30 year old recording this sounds very impressive in multichannel, and I will return to it - but do check out Grimaud on Teldec and Wild on Chandos. Was this review helpful to you? Review by beardawgs December 23, 3 of 3 found this review helpful.
I bought this Martha Argerich CD to hear her playing of Bartok's Piano Concerto No.3, which she recorded along with Prokofiev's 1st and 3rd Piano Concertos for EMI in She does play the Bartok beautifully of course, but the real highlights are actually the two Prokofiev Piano Concertos and in particular the 1st/5(26).

Sergei Prokofiev: Violin Concerto No. 2 Context. Around the time of the Russian Revolution in , Sergei Prokofiev left the Soviet Union and lived abroad for the next 18 years or so. He returned in an outsider, and was regarded as a foreigner by the regime whilst on tour of the USSR.
As unpredictable and exciting as his predecessor Prokofiev, but more often unexpectedly tender and romantic. The Piano/Trumpet Concerto with co-soloist Sergei Nakariakov feels a bit different, less playful than Argerich’s studio recording, but the live atmosphere is electrifying and the trumpetist ability has no audible limits/5(26).
