HD-Vinyl 24/192 (DGG) Frederyk Chopin – 24 Preludes, Polonaise No. 6 (Geza Anda)

front-small-boxset
All thanks for this Master go to Jean-Luc
Geza Anda is absolutely stunnig in this recital. His performance of the set of Preludes Op. 28 has no equal. I haven’t heard such structural cohesion, such architectural sound around every piece. The piano vibrates with orchestral texture. There’s poetry, passion, nostalgia, noblesse and sublime classical lyricism. Where does this put Anda in the great scheme? It’s difficult for me to say, in part because he died far to young to leave a legacy as long as others. I very much enjoy his recording and believe that he’s at the grand buffet with Rubinstein, Pollini, Richter, Arrau and few others.

HD-Vinyl 24/96 (DGG) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – Piano Concerti KV 175, KV 40 & KV 41 (Geza Anda)

front-small-boxset
All thanks go to Jean-Luc
Géza Anda’s interpretations of Mozart’s piano concertos are immortal classics that should not be overlooked. Granted, it is a crowded field, which include many excellent accounts (Perahia’s, for example). But these recordings – made in Salzburg – are fine examples of the rare moments in music making when a soloist and ensemble forms a coherent unit. Anda and his Salzburger team know Mozart by heart, and they perform these works with an unmatched dedication and sophistication. Technical brilliance is not the ultimate goal here; it is rather the music itself, how to let it flow with a balanced passion. This keeps the element of spontaneity, so crucial in Mozart’s music, alive and sparkling.

HD-Vinyl 24/96 (DGG) Johannes Brahms – Piano Concerto No. 2 (Anda/Karajan)

front-small-boxset
There is a real electricity in the Brahms interpretion of Geza Anda’s….his sense of pulse and drive really underly the incredible virtuosity of the Berlin Philharmonic. The opening movement moves along at the hectic pace but with some really urgent dramatic high points especially in the development section. Karajan really alots a very special role to the brass in this movement and the inspired playing is a joy…as to the cello solo at the opening of the third movement it is given a really fine treatment by Mr. Finke…then principal of the Berlin Phil. As to the Finale it has a nice relaxed sense of wonder without the hectic nature other conductors ascribe to Brahms here…I really think that this is one of the finest recordings of any music made anywhere.
