Frederic Chopin (1810-1849) Balades Nos. 1-4 Impromptus Nos. 1-4 Decca 2007 Pietro De Maria recorded Chopin's complete solo piano works for Decca between February 2006 and May 2012 in excellent digital sound.From the beginning, on the first album -with the 27 studios- the enormous personality and artistic qualities of this great pianist stand out: poetic encouragement, imagination and a wide color palette. De Maria is subtle and never falls on superficial or contentless virtuosity; his thesis on how to interpret Chopin seem to be based on the idea of a neat and fluid discourse projected with enormous expressive variety, all based on a well-calibrated organic development -without forgetting broad schemes that start from smaller organic cells to an indivisible greater whole- and of course with a first-rate immaculate technique. Thus, the series of Studies, Preludes or the three Sonatas have an admirable consistency although always highlighting the beauty and […]

(Theirs has for long been my favourite recording of the work.)I think that his orchestration works extremely well here and to quote Andrew Achenbach for Gramophone magazine - "Fraser’s richly upholstered orchestration works a treat yet also manages to be astutely appreciative of the […]

Bohuslav MartinuPiano Quintet No. 1Piano Quintet No. 2Sonata for Two Violins and PianoKarel Kosarek pianoMartinu SQNaxos 2007flac, cue, logs, booklet and covers Martinu’s Second Piano Quintet dates from 1944, the same time as the Third and Fourth Symphonies, and if you love those works you’ll be thrilled by this quintet, which sounds just like them albeit scored for smaller forces. Right from the dreamy opening Martinu’s personal blend of impressionistic harmony and sweetly lyrical, syncopated melody makes the work instantly recognizable, and unforgettable. The Adagio second movement must number among his finest in any medium, while the finale, with its alternations of quick and slow tempos and unsettled emotional climate, anticipates that of the Fifth Symphony. In short, this is a great work, certainly one of the best piano quintets of the 20th century (not that there are all that many worth noting).The Piano Quintet No. 1 dates from 1933, when […]
