It's curious that Marc-André Hamelin, the Quebec pianist perhaps most identified with pure virtuosity, hasn't recorded a great deal of the music of Liszt, the quintessential composer-virtuoso. This collection of Liszt pieces delivers satisfying results, although they don't involve the sheer keyboard-pounding fireworks you might expect. Indeed, Hamelin deploys his gifts more in the maintenance of total control over the music – not an easy thing with the Piano Sonata in B minor, it must be said – than in sheer power.

The Russian-British pianist Alexander Melnikov has recorded Shostakovich and a variety of Romantic chamber music with great success. But nothing quite prepares the listener for the controlled power in these performances of three Prokofiev piano sonatas. The Piano Sonata No. 6 in A major, Op. 82, and Piano Sonata No. 8 in B flat major, Op. 84, are among the most modernist works Prokofiev ever wrote. They appeared during World War II and are often thought, with some justification, to reflect that environment.

Ingrid Fliter is set to thrill her fans with a new recording of piano concertos; eagerly awaited since her acclaimed recording of Chopin 1 & 2, which saw Fliter nominated for a Gramophone Award. Fliter performs repertoire that is very close to her heart: concertos by two nineteenth century heavyweights, Schumann and Mendelssohn. With both composers giving equal focus to soloist and orchestra, the musicality of the Scottish Chamber Orchestra’s award-winning musicians shines through as they partner Fliter perfectly. This also marks the recording debut of Antonio Méndez, who is fast becoming one of the most exciting conductors of his generation following engagements with a host of international orchestras.

Since 1894, Tchaikovsky‘s Piano Concerto No. 1 has been published and performed in a version containing numerous unauthorized editorial alterations that were added posthumously. This is the first recording using the new scholarly edition by the Tchaikovsky Archive and Museum in Moscow of the 1879 version of the Piano Concerto - the version that was approved and conducted by Tchaikovsky until his last public appearance in 1893.

The encore, an end-of-concert ritual, is a moment apart, highly appreciated by the audience. What piece will the performer play? The curtain call offers this more relaxed moment when everyone awaits the chosen titles with great curiosity. Upon discovering the works played, often of short duration, the listener has the impression of getting to know the artist a little better, as these reveal his tastes and therefore a bit more of his personality.

One of the great cycles. Of the hundred or so available recorded cycles (out of about one hundred and fifteen or so), this rates as one of the best. In better sound than either the DG stereo cycle and the live King International cycle, Kempff's style is more poetic and less intense and fiery than others. Whatever Kempff may give away in terms of speed, power, and precision, he makes up for in other ways

Brahms is one of François-Frederic Guy’s favourite composer, he has accompanied him all his life, the first work that he performed in public was his First Concerto. The Brahms Project is, above all, conceived as an amorous dictionary of the composer and not an exhaustive complete recording. It is organised around the piano, the veritable common denominator of an original itinerary combining chamber music, the Lied, the concertos and solo piano works.

C’est un Mozart audacieux et même iconoclaste que le pianiste suisse Christian Chamorel nous présente au travers de cet enregistrement. Le répertoire pour piano solo du compositeur autrichien a tendance à être sous-estimé au profit de ses concertos et de ses opéras. Mais les sonates et autres pièces formant ce récital témoignent au contraire d’une grande originalité conceptuelle, et d’une puissance expressive sans cesse renouvelée.

This solo release from Elizabeth Joy Roe and the London Symphony Orchestra under Emil Tabakov couples two of the 20th century’s greatest piano concertos by Britten and Barber. Roe has been performing both works since a student at Julliard and has extensively studied the intriguing parallels between the two composers. The programme is completed with solo piano nocturnes by each composer: Britten’s Night Piece and Barber’s Nocturne, Homage to John Field, widely considered the father of the nocturne.
