Pianist Dong Hyek Lim, a bit older than the youthful face in the graphics might suggest, has gained a reputation as a Chopin specialist, with restrained, often exquisitely detailed performances made for the small recital hall rather than for the concert hall. This was, of course, the kind of venue for which Chopin wrote most of his music, and this is a very fine tour through the much-recorded 24 Preludes, Op. 28, which form the centerpiece of this album. Lim does well to introduce things with the flashier and rarely played Variations brillantes in B flat major, Op. 12, commanding the listener's attention before delving into the Preludes, some of the most harmonically intricate music Chopin wrote. Sample any of the really famous Preludes, such as the Prelude in E minor, Op. 28, No. 4, for an idea of what Lim is up to here: he not only lingers over dissonances, but explores their potential directions with sensitivity and intelligence, all while keeping the top of the dynamic range not very high. Lim takes you back to the public world with the Berceuse in D flat major, Op. 57, and Barcarolle in F sharp major, Op. 60, which show him to be capable of a more brilliant style. London's Henry Wood Hall fits these pieces well, but Warner's engineers might have gone with even a more intense, intimate space for the preludes. In any event, the performance of those is one of the most absorbing to have come along in quite some time.
Following his successful 2012 release of the Tchaikovsky Piano Concerto No. 1 with Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra, Russian pianist Daniil Trifonov tries on the more intimate role of recitalist for this live Decca album of solo piano pieces by Frédéric Chopin. Trifonov is a powerhouse in the Lisztian mold, and his incredible technique seems better suited to fast, flashy fingerwork than to more subdued music. Certain pieces, such as the Rondo in F major, Op. 5, "À la Mazur," the Étude in F major, Op. 10/8, and the Grande Valse Brillante, Op. 18, allow feats of prestidigitation, and there's no denying that he can perform with dazzling virtuosity.
It was an eminently sensible decision to couple Zimerman's previously separate Chopin concertos on a single CD. The Ax/Ormandy/RCA disc is the only rival as a coupling, so let me say at once that in different moods I would be equally happy with either.
Qui est vraiment Jean-Jacques Goldman ? Un incroyable faiseur de tubes ayant vendu près de 40 millions de disques ? Un auteur-compositeur qui a créé des classiques indémodables, de Je te donne à Envole-moi, Comme toi ou Là-bas ? Certes. Mais il est impossible de résumer Jean-Jacques à cette seule - formidable - carrière. …
Voici réunie en 12 CD une intégrale magistrale de Chopin. Le pianiste franco-libanais a choisi d'enregistrer cette œuvre dans l'ordre chronologique. Le résultat crée une mosaïque impressionnante de partitions qui s'ordonnent naturellement. Ainsi, des influences perméables des unes aux autres ressortent avec pertinence depuis les œuvres de jeunesse, claires et lumineuses jusqu'à celle du Chopin révolutionnaire qui annonce déjà Debussy et une certaine atonalité.
Albanian-born, Geneva-based violinist Tedi Papavrami has not only fashioned a major international career on the concert stage, but has had success as an actor, notably in France. That said, his focus remains on music, both as a performer and teacher.
