"A New Direction" is the second release from pianist/composer/vocalist Amy Janelle, following her 2010 debut, "Shining True." Since that first recording, Amy moved from the wet and chilly Pacific Northwest to warm and dry Sedona, AZ - a new direction, indeed, and a testament to the philosophy of “living your dream.” "Shining True" includes three vocal pieces, but this time there is just one, the closing track.

Barry Douglass Schubert series has reached Volume 3 with this unique programme, featuring two of the composers masterpieces as well as two ingenious transcriptions of his Lieder by his friend and admirer Liszt. Occasionally echoing Beethovens Variations in the same key (WoO 80), the Sonata in C minor melts into one of Schuberts most daring, lyrical, and unpredictable developments, alternating unexpected harmonic variations, pulsating rhythms, and purely dramatic passages.

Ernst Toch est né en 1887 à Vienne, Empire Austro-hongrois (Autriche). D'abord autodidacte, il étudia ensuite la composition et le piano au Conservatoire Hoch de Francfort (Allemagne), puis mena une double carrière de pianiste-concertiste et de compositeur. De plus, en 1914, il enseigna le piano et la composition au Conservatoire de Mannheim, avant de servir dans l'armée allemande durant la Première Guerre mondiale. Celle-ci achevée, il revint à Mannheim, en 1928, s'installa à Berlin avec sa famille. De religion juive, l'avènement du nazisme en 1933 le contraint à fuir l'Allemagne. Après un court passage à Paris et à Londres, il s'exila en 1934 aux États-Unis, où il s'établit définitivement.

Tatiana Shebanova, who also features in the Fryderyk Chopin Institute’s on-going Real Chopin series (see review special, p83), gets her own complete, modern instrument (as opposed to Real Chopin’s historic instruments) cycle on the Polish label Dux. Arranged in opus order, it presents a satisfying survey of Chopin’s development, and it spares the listener from (for example) a lack of variety in the usual hour-long sequence of waltzes.

This symphony probably may not have changed musical history from the moment it was first written, in Salzburg in early 1774 by the 18-year-old Mozart. But it crystallises the young man’s emerging compositional self-confidence, and that shows him spreading his wings in symphonic music just as he had already started to do in the opera house and in his chamber music.

Label: Universal Music Division Decca Records France

Pianist Sally Whitwell returns to the music of minimalist master Philip Glass in her latest album on ABC Classics, presenting a monumental and immersive journey for solo piano. In 2011, Whitwell won the ARIA Award for Best Classical Album for her collection of Glass’ music Mad Rush. Since then, her relationship with the composer has deepened, centring around the Etudes – his largest and most significant work for solo piano. After hearing Mad Rush, in 2013 Glass asked Whitwell to give the world-premiere of the Etudes, alongside the composer, at the Perth International Arts Festival; he subsequently invited her to perform them again in New York and Los Angeles. This album is a result of that close collaboration.

„Nocturnes“ is the 4th album of Maxence Cyrin. Having realized two albums where he reinterpreted pop, rock and electro anthems as a solo pianist (‘Modern Rhapsodies’, ‘Novö Piano’), then ‘The Fantasist’, an imaginary movie soundtrack, ‘Nocturnes’ is its first album of compositions for solo piano, putting back with current tastes a musical form adopted by several classic composers (Fauré, Field) and popularized by Chopin.

Although Liszts thirteen symphonic poems exist in two-piano transcriptions prepared by the composer himself, it was his Czech student August Stradal (1860-1930) who was to transcribe them for solo piano versions which demand almost superhuman virtuosity. As the late Malcolm MacDonald writes in his booklet essay, Stradals versions transform these revolutionary orchestral compositions into viable and effective piano works, faithfully preserving their masterly musical substance.
