SCHUBERT: SONGS WITHOUT WORDS is an elegant recital by pianist Daria Hovora and cellist Mischa Maisky that allows us to hear Schubert songs, beautifully rich as they are with the texts as sung by many of our finest singers, here solely for the instrumental line. Somehow the interplay between melody and accompaniment (always an equal partnership in Schubert's hands) is heightened by this experience. Not that the entire album is appropriated by the cello standing in for a vocalist: the opening work is "Sonata for Arpeggione and Klavier" and is one of the highlights of the CD. But just listen to the performances of 'Standchen', 'An die Musik' and 'Du bist die Ruhe' and hear the extraordinary marriage between the piano and cello, singing as beautifully as any other version. This is one of those CDs that bears keeping out for multiple listenings in the late evening.

Jeremy Beck - Cello Sonata No. 3, Songs without words, Black Water
Classical | EAC: FLAC+Cue+Log | 1 Cd, Covers | 230 Mb
Date: 2006

Jeremy Beck has created a special kind of musical world; one which combines hope with a gentle sadness and nostalgia. It is the kind that you glimpse upon waking on a Sunday morning and seeing a steady rain in the garden, knowing that you can go right back to bed. Satisfying, warm inside, and with little self-pity. His Sonata for Cello and Piano No. 3 may as well have been composed looking over the drenched rooftops of Paris rather than in Cedar Falls, Iowa……

This is s superb account of Jewish music that not many people have ever heard of. It is Jewish art music either for clarinet and piano or arranged for them. Some pieces are arrangements of folk songs, but some are not – many compositions here are true art music and will be a revelation to many listeners. I can't recommend it enough.

This recording is wonderful! Schiff in particular is clearly inspired, amused and transformed by the astounding young Mr. Mendelssohn. Try them yourself. If you don't smile and your pulse doesn't race a bit, you need to see a doctor as soon as possible.

Felix Mendelssohn Performed by Daniel Barenboim (1997)
Classical | 2CD | MP3 192 Kbps + Front & Back cover | 184 Mb

Daniel Barenboim has always been one of my favourite pianists. I know him mostly as a Beethoven interpreter, but his recording of "Songs without Words" is up there with the best I've heard. The sound quality is as good as you have come to expect from DG and the performance is crystal clear and precise at all times. I aquired this recording beacuse I was keen to play some of the pieces myself but Barenboim has a few ideas of his own that I don't quite agree with. Most of the songs are played just as I imagine Mendelssohn wrote them, but some of them fall out and leaves a "not absolutely perfect after all" feeling inside you. However, if you are a fan of Barenboim you will love this recording. These wonderful songs deserve a unique performer like Barenboim. If you'd like to listen to Barenboim at his best I suggest that you listen to his Beethoven recordings, and especially the sonatnas.
