Quote from: Mandryka on January 28, 2023, 04:55:00 AMA Chopin potpourri inspired by the pianist's encounter with a rather big 1905 Pleyel, includes op 58.
Quote from: Que on January 30, 2023, 12:32:30 PMOooohh.. Enrico Baiano is back!
Quote from: Mandryka on January 30, 2023, 10:09:11 PMI also noticed yesterday a second Froberger Cd., and a recording of 17th century Neapolitan keyboard music. It's not really that he's back - he's never been away.
Quote from: Kontrapunctus on January 30, 2023, 12:43:06 PMThe sound of that Pleyel is very clear, no doubt due in part to Guy's wonderful playing, but I prefer the sound of a more modern grand. Still, this is very enjoyable.
Quote from: Mandryka on January 31, 2023, 10:26:49 AMI think the piano makes the sonata worth knowing. Without the piano it would just another rather well done op 53. But the treble and bass of that piano are impressive and it brings something new. (The op 48/1, which I'm hearing for the first time now, is amazing!)
Quote from: Mandryka on January 31, 2023, 11:10:16 AMActually rereading this, even on one of Daniel Pienaar's Steinways it would be a drop dead gorgeous op 53. However, I think the piano makes it more than just another drop dead gorgeous performance of the sonata. (Slightly backpedaling here)

Quote from: Florestan on February 02, 2023, 01:09:37 AMOp. 53 is not a sonata, it's the Heroic Polonaise. I'm puzzled.
Quote from: Mandryka on February 02, 2023, 01:18:09 AMYes I was making that mistake a lot that day and it confused me a lot - op 58 is what I should have said.
QuoteMaxim Emelyanychev's affinity with Mozart is well known, especially when it comes to piano works: in 2018, the conductor and keyboardist treated us to a recording that not only displayed his virtuosity and musicianship, but also revealed his remarkably close understanding of the composer's music.Today, the symphonies are the focus of his first long term project with Il Pomo d'Oro, an ensemble he has been working with as its conductor since 2013. As he points out, this project, aiming eventually to provide a complete set of the Mozart symphonies, is unlike anything he has recorded with the ensemble hitherto on period instruments.The approach here is original: each volume will feature an early symphony by Mozart, together with one of his great mature symphonies, which will enable the listener to perceive his many facets, revealed in the course of his development. Each volume will also include a bonus work, featuring a special guest. Inaugurating the series, Maxim Emelyanychev himself provides the hors d'œuvre with Concerto no. 23 K.488, played on a fortepiano, before going on to conduct Mozart's Symphonies nos. 1 and 41, his first and his last, as the main course of this delightful feast.
