Vincent Larderet - Brahms & Berg: Piano Works (2017)

The first Brahms, the last Brahms, the first Berg: Brahms was twenty when he composed his Third Sonata in 1853, Berg twenty-three at the time of his only Sonata in that year 1910 ... If the Sonata in F minor of Brahms represents the fulfillment and summit of the great romantic sonata - the timing of his symphonic gigantism - in the lineage from Haydn, Mozart, Beethoven to Schumann, Berg's Sonata symbolizes both the end of an epoch Closing the romantic sonata and opening up to the future. It is quite another world than that of Intermezzi Op. 117 of 1892, in which the art of chiaroscuro and half-tone is expressed. Brahms reconnects with the piano and his last cycles form a kind of pianistic testament. It is perhaps the most intimate of Brahms, who will also call some of his later plays "the lullabies of my pain" ... Berg will obviously remember it in his Sonata. Details

This Erato disc contains six generally minor works by Pierre Boulez. These works are minor in that they are less grand in their proportions but they are generally not minor in quality. The collection reminds me vaguely of the concept of "b-sides" in rock music, and just as with many rock acts, one feels that some gems are unfairly neglected. Two of the pieces here are among Boulez's earliest acknowledged works. The Sonatine for Flute and Piano and the Piano Sonata No. 1 both date from 1946, when Boulez was still trying to find his own sound going beyond the basis he found in the Second Viennese School. The Sonatine is inspired by Schoenberg's Chamber Symphony op. 9 in form and by Berg in its serial material, while both the Sonatine and the Piano Sonata find inspiration in Webern and Schoenberg for the virtuoso and "delirious" piano parts. The former is a rather unexciting work, I'd call it juvenalia even if Boulez thinks it worthy of preservation. However, the latter is a rich piece which displays new sides of itself on every listen. I quite enjoy Pierre-Laurent Aimard's performance here, it has a savagery to it unlike the methodical touch of Jumppanen or the nimbleness of Biret. The Ensemble Intercontemporain and BBC Singers perform, conducted by the composer himself. The pieces were recorded in the projection space at IRCAM, and so the sound quality is very good indeed. I heartily recommend this to the Boulez fan.

Ernst Krenek - Piano Sonatas Nos. 1, 3 and 5 (Madge)

Ernst Krenek - Piano Sonatas Nos. 1, 3 and 5 (Madge)
Classical | EAC: FLAC+Cue+Log | 1 Cd, Covers + Booklet | 215 Mb
Date: 1991

If you're ever going to like or maybe even love the piano music of Ernst Krenek, it will probably be with his three-movement Piano Sonata No. 1, Op. 2, from 1919. A comely and lithe spirit of a work compared with his austerely expressive later works, this sonata is still an enormously ambitious work for a 19-year-old. But pianist Geoffrey Douglas Madge plays the First with complete sympathy and dedication to its youthful expressivity. Although it's an atypical work by Krenek, for that very reason it may be the most lovable of his piano works. The four-movement Sonata No. 3, Op. 92, from .....

Label:CPO - Date:1996

A study of Viennese-born composer Ernst Krenek's prodigious output is rather like a study of twentieth century music in microcosm. Krenek moved with ease through the various aesthetic and stylistic changes that marked that turbulent century, taking what he considered the best features of each and fusing them into a new language all his own. Born in August of 1900, Krenek began musical training at the age of 6, and later studied privately with Franz Schreker in Vienna before enrolling for formal training with the same at the Berlin Conservatory in 1920......

Mitsuko Uchida, Pierre Boulez - Schoenberg: Piano Concerto, Berg: Sonata, Webern: Variations (2001) (Repost)

Mitsuko Uchida, Pierre Boulez - Schoenberg: Piano Concerto, Berg: Sonata, Webern: Variations (2001)
EAC | FLAC (image+.cue, log) | Covers Included | 63:45 | 257 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Philips | Catalog: 468 033-2

Mitsuko Uchida has been a committed exponent of Schoenberg's Piano Concerto for over a decade now. It is a work which remains controversial in its adaptation of the serial method to an almost Brahmsian harmonic palette, wedded to a formal approach that takes up the integrated design, and textural richness, of Schoenberg's pre-atonal works. Certainly in terms of the balance between soloist and orchestra, this recording clarifies the often capricious interplay to a degree previously unheard on disc (and most likely in the concert hall too).Interpretatively, it combines Pollini's dynamism, without the hectoring touch that creeps into the Adagio's climactic passages, and Brendel's lucidity, avoiding the deadpan feeling that pervades his final Giocoso.

Excellent value box containing all of Berg's major works. The best performance is maybe Abbado's of Wozzeck. This is a live recording and sounds like it;very exciting orchestral playing that sometimes almost drowns out the voices . I dont think this is a problem as it kind of fits with opera's theme of helpless people up against forces they cant control etc. The Boulez recording of Lulu is also very good but here the lack of libretto in the package is a bit annoying as the opera has a very elaborate plot and the synopsis provided isnt really detailed enough to follow what's going on.
