Ludwig van Beethoven's 33 Variations on a Waltz by Anton Diabelli is one of the great landmarks in piano literature, and it is astonishing how much variety and brilliance Diabelli's charming but trite theme inspired. However, before Beethoven's flashes of genius can be discovered and appreciated, the listener must commit to sit through close to 50 minutes of piano music that is simply overwhelming in its explosive energy and scope. Because of this piece's inherent power, a performer must know when to pull back and when to charge ahead, carefully gauging emotional reactions along the way and taking care not to bludgeon the audience. Daniel-Ben Pienaar is volatile and forceful in this 2011 performance, and for a good part of the piece, he pushes himself, the piano, and anyone else in the vicinity almost to the point of exhaustion. There are variations where he pulls back for reflection, but on the whole, this is an assertive and vigorous reading that requires patience on a first run-through. On a second hearing, however, much that might have passed by unnoticed because of Pienaar's surprising speed, loudness, and aggressiveness becomes easier to follow, and his great energy seems less like an onslaught than an exciting challenge. To close this bracing album, Pienaar includes the Six Bagatelles, Op. 126, which are played with a similar exuberance and dispatch.

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.

Bruno Walter, Memories of a Departed Legend

Listening to Bruno Walter’s recordings, in light of the splendid remastered editions published by Sony Classical, you tap into a truly humanistic culture. A tremendous conductor, music was his vocation, a way of life and an art of thought. His recordings have conserved his art vocal music, intense but never sentimental, thanks to a clear linearity complemented by a versatile rhythm, ensuring clarity, coherence and vigour.
