HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Philips) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Piano Sonatas KV 457, 533 (Ingrid Haebler)

front-small-boxset Many thanks to Jean-Luc for this gem
Direct comparisons between Haebler and Uchida reveal that Haebler possessed a gentler, lyrical style. Whereas Uchida pointedly punctuates every accent, Haebler’s long lyrical lines reveal more of Mozart’s beauty. The differences are obvious from the get-go. Whereas Uchida blazes through some Sonatas (sounding oh so modern) Haebler allows the music to breath. In so doing, Mozart’s musical lines flourish.

HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Turnabout) WAM – Piano Concerti No. 25 & 27 (Brendel)

front-small-boxsetMany thanks to Jean-Luc for this precious gem
Brendel has given us some distinguished Mozart recordings over the years, including concerto collaborations with Marriner/ASMF and more recently with Mackerras (the latter of which I have not heard). But a case can be made that his earliest efforts from the 60s convey a freshness and enthusiasm that he only fitfully recaptured later in his career. Though recording and ensemble playing call for some tolerance, those prepared to listen past some poorly tuned winds and occasionally harsh treble frequencies will be treated to some exquisite pianism. Brendel at his best.

HD-Vinyl 24/96 (DGG) LvB – Piano Concerto No.3 C-Minor / Rondo B-Flat-Major (Richter)

front-small-boxsetMany thanks to Jean-Luc for this precious gift
Nine years have elapsed since the death of this giant of the piano. Sviatoslav Richter left a wake so difficult to forget, because among other virtues, his powerful imagination allowed him to perform with absolute idiomatic lexicon, the most exigent scores. This album shows us Richter in one of his preferred works. The fabulous Beethoven Concerto No. 3 filled of reminiscences and mythic meaning.
One of his major artistic achievements along his successful career.

HD-Vinyl 24/96 (Supraphon) Antonin Dvorak – Violin Concerto/Romance For Violin (Suk)

front-small-boxsetMany thanks to Jean-Luc for this rare gem
The painful new of Suk’s death in 2011 made me rethink about this cruel statement; with his absence has dissapeared the last of the great exponents of the giants of the violin of the Great Middle Europe tradition. This school persisted on the fact to acquire personal expression, character and then the technique. That was the secret we may distinguish Heifetz sound, Stern sound, Nevue sound, Milstein sound, Rabin or Menuhin sounds. And Joseph Suk also belonged to this old school. This version of Dvorak violin concerto still remains among the supreme and until this date – unsurpassed performance – along the musical literature.
In memory of this legendary artist.
