British pianist Jonathan Plowright enters a crowded field of recordings of two Brahms keyboard standards with this release on Sweden's BIS label, and he doesn't even have especially original interpretations to offer. What he does accomplish are detailed, near-flawless readings of two vast, complex works, both pulsing with the energy of Brahms' youth. The Piano Sonata No. 3 in F minor, Op. 5, was completed in 1852, when Brahms was 20. In many ways it's the first work of his maturity, uniting lyrical fantasy and structural unity in startling, daring ways. Sample Plowright's treatment of the finale of the sonata's unusual five-movement sequence, which is a series of quasi-improvisatory gestures tied together with iron logic. He never lets any detail fall out of place, and he is alert to the ways in which central European dance music, the warmth, life-affirming counterpart to Brahms' intellect, is never far from even the most intricate phrases. In the Variations and Fugue on a Theme by Handel, Op. 24, he is equally good in a work that is almost exclusively about register and texture: until the end, it is composed almost entirely of diatonic harmonies. Plowright's Steinway sounds clean and powerful, and he keeps control over processes lasting many minutes. The engineering from BIS, working in Britain's acoustically superior Potton Hall, is nonpareil: it puts you squarely in front of Plowright's piano, right where intelligent observers in the Schumann circle would have been at Brahms' original performance of the work in 1852, but it does not fetishize extraneous noises. A superior Brahms recital.

Neoclassicism: The New World Between Classical Music and Electro

Ólafur Arnalds, Nils Frahm, Max Richter, Poppy Ackroyd, Peter Broderick, Joana Gama... In recent years, these popular names have all been grouped under the vast and imprecise label "neoclassical". In truth, this "scene" looks more like a motley crew of curious artists who mix classical instruments with electronic production. Drawing influence from American minimalism, these musicians tantalise the senses and expand horizons on both sides of the musical spectrum.
