Dmitri Shostakovich - Piano Works Complete CD 1 (Boris Petrushansky)
Classical | EAC: FLAC+Cue+Log | 5 Cd, Covers + Booklet | 1.21 Gb
Date: 2007

A really unique achievement to celebrate Shostakovich's centennial: the only complete edition of his solo piano music, including previously unrecorded pieces. Petrushansky's familiarity with Shostakovich's music and his pianistic pedigree (he was the last pupil of Heinrich Neuhaus) are all guarantees for a box that will be an absolute reference.

Maria Lettberg performs works by Scriabin on CD. The CD includes fascinating visualizations of Scriabin's music - the composer associated with his music with color progressions. Scriabin is the only true heir of Chopin, in the sense that his piano music not only derives from the piano but also extends and redefines the scope of the very instrument - indeed, more of an acquired taste due to its vast idiosyncrasies but possibly even more addictive.

The third volume of the complete piano works focuses on the three sets of Children’s Notebooks, 23 charming miniatures written to meet the strong demand for music for children in the Soviet Union. Weinberg’s sets, however, were criticised for so-called inappropriate sophistication. The 21 Easy Pieces for Piano, Op 34 are mood pictures, less technically demanding than the Notebooks but certainly not aimed at beginners.

Dmitry Borisovich Kabalevsky was a prolific composer of piano music and chamber music; many of his piano works have been performed by the likes of Vladimir Horowitz. He is probably best known in the West for the "Comedians Galop" from The Comedians Suite, Op. 26. In general, Kabalevsky was not as adventurous as his contemporaries in terms of harmony and preferred a more conventional diatonicism, interlaced with chromaticism and major-minor interplay.

Ildebrando Pizzetti (1880-1968) belonged to the group of Italian composers (the so called ‘Generation of the ‘80s’), his contemporaries were Respighi, Malipiero and Casella. Of these composers, Respighi and Pizzetti composed relatively little for the piano, and their works for the instrument tend recall music of the past - with echoes of baroque and Gregorian chant detected in many of them. Pizzetti’s love of melody is quintessentially Italian – a predilection for song, dramatic lyricism and at time moments of great joy and passion – all components found in not only his orchestral music, but in the works for piano on these CD's. Many are exquisite miniatures, but ……

Perhaps what strikes the ear first about Alberto Ginastera's music is the convincing and intelligible way in which the composer utilizes dissonance to create lucid gestures and expressions. Ginastera seems to know just where and how to place his sonic gnarls and knots so that that they appear as beauty marks instead of blemishes. The Three Pieces for Piano (1940) readily exemplify this aspect of Ginastera's musical language…….

Alberto Ginastera's Piano Sonata No. 1, Op. 22, exemplifies the stylistic traits associated with what scholars have described as Ginastera's "subjective nationalist" period. In earlier works, such as the Danzas Argentinas, Op. 2, from 1937, and the Creole Faust Overture from 1943, Ginastera borrowed from, modeled on, and/or made explicit references to dance and song styles from the folk traditions of his native Argentina. Beginning in the late '40s and early '50s, however, ……
