Natan Brand was one of the most mercurial and communicative pianists to have graced the concert platform during the second half of this century. The premature death of this Israeli-American artist in 1990, during his 46th year, was a tragic loss to countless music-lovers, not only in America, Canada and Israel, where he enjoyed unusually well-informed and enthusiastic audiences, but also in many European cities where his performances invariably left indelible pleasurable memories. Natan Brand In Recital, predominantly compiled from live performances, is a telling and vivid reminder of his unique art. [Booklet Notes - Introduction by Geoffrey Dorffman]

Le soliste témoigne d'un naturel et d'une simplicité qui ne subvertissent jamais le texte, ne perdant jamais de vue l'arc tendu de la tragédie derrière le sourire (Sonate, D.960). Soucieux de la narration, de la qualité de la palette sonore, du dosage du timbre (Impromptu n°3), il délivre une exécution très construite, aérée, respectueuse de la notion du temps schubertien. On subodore derrière la poésie et la tension dramatique toute la générosité et le don de soi qui rapprochent Sodi Braide de l'insondable errance du Wanderer avec une émotion pudique toujours relayée par une pulsation qui semble couler de source. Une telle conception soutient sans cesse l'intérêt et apporte assurément une pierre supplémentaire à la connaissance de l'interprétation des ultimes opus de Schubert.

Clifford Curzon - Mozart: Piano Concerto No.27, Schubert: 4 Impromptus & Moment Musical (2013)

Clifford Curzon - Mozart: Piano Concerto No.27, Schubert: 4 Impromptus & Moment Musical (2013)
EAC | FLAC (image+.cue, log) | Covers Included | 57:22 | 183 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Testament | Catalog: SBT 1486

The performance of the Impromptus, D.899, heard here, confirms Curzon’s place as one of the great Schubert players of his generation. Indeed, the audience was so impressed that they couldn’t help applauding between each Impromptu. Not only does Curzon manage to play with a range of emotion, from limpid tenderness to controlled aggression, but his attention to the sound he produces from the piano never fails to impress.

The first time I heard him play was at the Moscow Conservatory in May 1957, and he opened his programme with the last of Schuberts sonatas. Its a very long sonata, one of the longest ever written, in fact, and Richter played it at the slowest tempo Ive ever heard. I think at this point its appropriate to confess... Im not really addicted to most of Schuberts music. I find myself unable to come to terms with the repetitive structure, and I get very restless and squirm when I have to sit through one of the longer Schubert essays.

What would happen if Schubert, Chopin, Beethoven, Liszt, Dvorak, Gershwin and Ives got together for a posthumous jam session? Pianist Shai Wosner presents a thought provoking and highly original program of Impromptus that will challenge the listener's perceptions of these composers and and take them along for the ride as these improvisations take on a life of their own.

French only. C'est le fameux portrait présumé de Schubert, adolescent timide qui semble fuir l'intrusion du peintre assis en face de lui, qui nous invite à l'écoute du dernier album du pianiste Jean-Marc Luisada qui se fait trop rare au disque. Avec des musiciens parfaitement soudés, il nous offre une version particulièrement joyeuse et amicale du Quintette en la majeur, cette Truite que l'on partage dans le plaisir d'une Schubertiade. Comme tout est ici vivant, ensoleillé ; c'est à peine si un voile de mélancolie vient ombrer l'andante à variations. La majeur, la bémol majeur, la mineur, Luisada virevolte avec gourmandise et malice autour de cette note qui se décline sous trois habits différents, un peu comme un peintre (ou un cuisinier) restant dans un camaïeu de couleurs et de goûts.

Schubert - Impromptus Op. 90 Op. 142 - Radu Lupu

Schubert - Impromptus Op. 90 Op. 142 - Radu Lupu
Classical | EAC Rip | APE+LOG+CUE+3%RR | Covers | 1 CD, 205 MB
2010 | Decca Japan| UCCD-4566 SHM-CD| Filesonic + Fileserve

Lupu is a keyboard poet, and Schubert's lyrical gems seem as though they were written for his interpretive artistry. He sings the gorgeous melodies with limpid, beautiful tone. The intimacy Lupu achieves in the G-flat impromptu sounds almost personal, an effect heightened by the transparent engineering. There's a luminosity to Lupu's traversal of these remarkable works that's irresistible; his pianism alternates subtle lights and shades. While the playing is elegant and refined, he doesn't stint on the dramatic contrasts in the music, nor does he neglect the dark poetry that pulls it into deeper regions. There are many fine versions of these classics; Lupu's stands with the best. --Dan Davis Details

Recording Franz Schubert's String Quintet in C major, D. 956, is a major achievement for most string players, and Quatuor Ebene's performance with cellist Gautier Capucon on Erato is a high point in their discography. Playing with great transparency and alertness, the quintet delivers a vital performance that captures the rarefied, almost mystical quality of Schubert's late masterpiece while maintaining a sense of urgency and, at times, explosive energy.
