As the title suggests, this is the second album by pianist Kenneth Hamilton that pairs Chopin preludes with (mostly) longer works. That pairing is part of a set of performance ideas by Hamilton that he derived from studies of 19th century pianism, including the recordings of Ignacy Paderewski and even a piano roll made by one of Liszt's students. These ideas include varied repeats, an extremely flexible approach to attack and dynamics, and considerable use of tempo rubato even by the standard usual for this composer. Both of Hamilton's Chopin albums have been commercially successful, a testimony to the strength of audience interest in fresh interpretations of core Romantic repertory, and in this respect, Hamilton is a successful new voice. He is especially attractive in the wandering, rarely heard Polonaise-Fantaisie, Op. 61. The Preludes to Chopin title also indicates a novel approach and one that's perhaps less successful: Hamilton argues that Chopin's Preludes were indeed intended to fulfill the ancestral function of the prelude as an introduction to another work, typically one in the same key. Chopin scholars have suggested this in the past, pointing out that a publication by Czerny of 1839, the same year Chopin's Preludes were published, specified such use of the prelude, but Chopin published his preludes as a set, and apparently did not use them in the way Hamilton suggests. Liszt, who was in a position to know, said that the Chopin Preludes were "compositions of an order entirely apart" from the usual type of prelude, and Chopin liked how Liszt played them, saying that he wished he could borrow Liszt's interpretations. In any event, this is a fresh look at Chopin that is welcome even if individual reactions may vary.

Martha Argerich, l'indomptable pianiste

Voilà plus de soixante ans que la pianiste argentine (naturalisée suisse) Martha Argerich enchante le public par son jeu sauvage et impulsif et par une prise de risques de chaque instant. Défiant les difficultés techniques, cet artiste flamboyante a fait de chacune de ses interprétations une aventure dont nous sommes les témoins admiratifs.

Erased Tapes, un label pas si classique

Dès sa création en 2007, Erased Tapes s’est imposé comme un des labels les plus innovants des quinze dernières années, tout en rencontrant le succès auprès du public. Parfois trop vite réduit à sa vitrine néoclassique (Nils Frahm, Ólafur Arnalds), le label basé à Londres mène des explorations aux confins de l’ambient, l’electronica et l’expérimental à travers un catalogue mené de manière harmonieuse par l’Allemand Robert Raths, que Qobuz vous propose d’explorer.
