The ten Sonatas for piano and violin (for it is under this singular appellation that they were originally published) date from the first maturity of Beethoven; 1798 to 1803 for the first nine, 1812 for the last. A surprising design - no doubt a publisher's affair, which did not want to frighten the amateur violinists - for most of which are genuine double concertos without orchestra, especially the sonata "A Kreutzer" (originally designed for violinist George Bridgetower With whom Beethoven sintered shortly afterwards, and then dedicated to Rodolphe Kreutzer, who found it unintelligible … the hazards of history which gives to a masterpiece the name of an obscure personage who certainly does not deserve it!) Of which we know The squarely symphonic amplitude.

Joao Maria Pires is nowadays, the supreme female pianist in the sublime art of playing Mozart. Because although she is far from the superior vision of Clara Haskil, for instance, she plays with an artistic conviction that may be noticed from the first bar, her spiritual affinity has joined with an overriding goal to capture with mind and heart the essential nuances of the beloved Salzburg's son. It's not an easy fact she has achieved this envied place. There are superb and majuscule pianist all over the world, but the difference that makes the difference is the quality of sound, between incorporeal and evanescent that remarks the sumptuous lyricism we always find in Mozart.

Label: Grand Piano | Catalogue No: GP678

With two world première recordings, this programme highlights the Romantic and spiritual side of contemporary music from Russia and Eastern Europe. Galina Ustvolskaya’s early Concerto expresses a vision of beauty and suffering in a tonal language quite unlike her later works. Giya Kancheli’s Sio or ‘breeze’ is notable for its striking use of silence, as well as modal tunes, bass drones and wide dynamic extremes derived from Georgian folk music. Silvestrov’s devotional Hymn reflects his approach to music as ‘a song the world sings about itself’. Elisaveta Blumina’s acclaimed recording of Silvestrov’s solo piano works can be heard on GP639.

Debussy's Études are really the only set that deserves to be put beside Chopin's. What makes them so special? Like his, they are truly "practice pieces," systematically exploring various aspects of keyboard technique. But at the same time, they are poetic works of art, full of fantasy, charm, and musical invention. Uchida's recording is almost universally regarded as the finest version of these works to appear in modern times. Her playing combines effortless virtuosity with pianistic precision, keeping the music's artistic and pedagogical tendencies in a state of exquisite tension. This disc also established Uchida's claim to be recognized as one of the most interesting and talented pianists now active. You need to hear it.
