"Nessun libro può sostituire il diario tragico di Klemperer: in esso è l'esperienza della distruzione a parlare, la violenza quotidiana della predicazione di morte. I lemmi, che egli sceglie per l'illustrazione del processo di formazione di una nuova lingua del potere, sono offerti alla sua intelligenza di filologo dalla sua vita quotidiana di perseguitato e si confrontano con la progressiva riduzione della sua esistenza a quella di un testimone. È un libro dal vero, che ci riconduce, con la meticolosa pedanteria di un cronista, a una storia aberrante come fosse ancora un presente." (dalla Prefazione di Michele Ranchetti)

Jean-Efflam Bavouzet is starting a complete, chronological survey of Beethoven’s piano sonatas, to run parallel with his complete Haydn sonatas series. This first box set covers the sonatas composed in the 1790s. Two further volumes, of middle and late sonatas respectively, will follow in 2013 and 2014. Each three-disc box set in the series will be available as the price of two CDs. In a recent cover feature in International Piano, Michael Church spoke with the pianist about the new project and reported: ‘For Bavouzet, the particular pleasure of coming to Beethoven after Haydn lies in the fact that although their basic harmonic language is roughly the same, in Beethoven’s scores the dynamics are clearly indicated, especially where they seem completely independent of the music’s so-called natural harmonic tensions.’ Bavouzet added: ‘The accents are in exactly the wrong place, and that’s what creates his music’s excitement. I am so happy to have these two streams of my work running side by side for the next few years.’

Jean-Efflam Bavouzet’s fascinating journey through Beethoven’s complete sonatas now comes to an end with this third volume. The prodigious exploration reaches its culmination in this three-disc set – sold for the price of 2 CDs as were its two predecessors – featuring the most mature and exploratory of Beethoven’s sonatas, including the heroic, two-movement ‘Appassionata’. Bavouzet’s distinguished interpretations reveal not only the technical virtuosity but also the emotional power of these contrasted works. With his characteristically fresh and energetic, yet expressive and profound approach, Bavouzet captures a Beethoven drawing the contours of romantic keyboard textures that would become the staple of the next generation. This project will also resonate on the concert platform, as a series of recitals will take it to the most significant venues around the world.

This really was quite a fine recording of Beethoven's Missa Solemnis, one of the best in years and easily the best of the early music recordings. The Choeur de la Chapelle Royale et du Collegium Vocale sing with strength and stamina, but also with grace and beauty of tone. The Champs Elysees Orchestra plays with power and precision, but also with unity of ensemble and beauty of tone, a very rare quality in an early music orchestra. And Herreweghe himself is actually an apt interpreter of the work. Not only does he have a knack for bringing out better than the best in his performers, but he actually seems to believe in the spiritual and sublime essence of the work, a very, very rare quality in any conductor these days. The result is a performance which, while it doesn't rival the 1940 Toscanini, the 1965 Klemperer, or the 1974 Böhm, does express the overwhelming sense that the numinous is imminent. Harmonia Mundi's sound is rich and vibrant.

Among the many genres Beethoven used to build on his reputation upon his arrival in Vienna, the violin sonatas allowed him not only to demonstrate his own prowess on the keyboard, but also played to the increasing popularity of chamber works that might be attempted by sophisticated amateurs. Following Mozart's trend of liberating the violin from a mere secondary role, Beethoven continued to bring about the equality of both instruments in all of his duo sonatas. Performing these 10 sonatas is the splendid duo of violinist Renaud Capuçon and pianist Frank Braley. The recordings take place in la Chaux de Fonds concert hall in Switzerland, a venue that offers listeners an exceptionally wonderful, intimate sound quality even on a CD.
