As a distinct form of solo piano music, the Romantic miniature had antecedents reaching back to Beethoven and Schubert, though Felix Mendelssohn's Lieder ohne worte were among the most influential music publications in the 19th century, and they became the model for countless parlor pieces. With an emphasis on lyrical melodies and poetic moods, Mendelssohn's songs without words were likely inspired by similar pieces composed by his sister, Fanny Mendelssohn, and they in turn gave Franz Liszt the impetus to compose his own, as well as his Grosses Konzertstück über Themen aus Mendelssohns Lieder ohne Worte for two pianos. Philippe Cassard's 2017 release on Sony Classical offers a generous selection of the best-known songs without words, including the famous Andante con moto in E major, Op. 19, No. 1, the “Spring Song,” Op. 62, No. 6, and the Presto, Op. 67, No. 4, also known as the “Spinner’s Song.” He has also programmed Liszt's arrangement of Mendelssohn's Sonntagslied, Op. 34, No. 5, along with Fanny Mendelssohn's Lied, Op. 6, No. 2, and a "song with words," the Nachtlied, Op. 71, No. 6, which is given in a surprise appearance by soprano Natalie Dessay. While this disc only gives a representative sample of the eight volumes of Lieder ohne worte, Cassard's playing is always engaging and the album is a delightful introduction to this charming genre of keyboard music.

Wilhelm Kempff: The Most Human of Pianists

An artist of another time, Wilhelm Kempff (1895-1991) believed in inspiration: he took on music as if it were a religion, with a respectful enthusiasm for the masters that came before him. With his velvet touch, sense of phrasing and storytelling quality, Wilhelm Kepff’s art was like that of a waking dream. Half poet, half divine, during a time when expression of emotion triumphed all. He recorded many times the works of his favourite composers, in particular his ‘god’ Beethoven, for whom Kempff is well known and left behind three complete sonatas in keeping with his own maturation and the evolution of his recording technique.

Jorge Bolet, the Epitome of Franz Liszt

Franz Liszt’s music re-emerged in the early 1980’s and for once it was played in a way that was both poetic and lyrical, rather than simply getting the notes out. Jorge Bolet recorded a ground-breaking anthology of the Hungarian composer for DECCA, as well as other recordings for the Spanish label ENSAYO, for RCA in the 1970’s, for EVEREST in 1960, and studio and radio recordings in the 1950’s.
