This major release programmed to showcase some of Prokofiev's finest works launches in early 2016 the Mariinsky label's projects to honour the 125th anniversary of the composer’s birth, under the baton of maestro Valery Gergiev, a long-time champion of the music of Prokofiev.
Acclaimed for his highly sensitive touch and technical brilliance, Alexei Volodin plays Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No 4 for the left hand, the only of Prokofiev's piano works that was not performed during his lifetime due to the following. Commissioned to Prokofiev by the Austrian one-armed pianist Paul Wittgenstein (amputated during the World War I) and written in 1930, this concerto was not appreciated by the dedicatee who refused to include it in his repertoire. It was not premiered in Berlin until September 1956, by the West Berlin RSO conducted by Martin Rich, but with another pianist, Siegfried Rapp (amputated too but during World War II). Alexei Volodin's performance was described as 'superbly controlled and beautifully subtle" by The Guardian.
The American-Armenian musician Sergei Babyan performs Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No 5 premiered in Berlin in October 1932 by Prokofiev himself conducted by Wilhelm Furtwängler. The Telegraph reviewer was sufficiently moved to write: "Never have I seen so many fast and furious hand-crossings, so many dizzying flights from top to bottom of the keyboard, all performed flawlessly". © Qobuz

10 Versions of Berlioz’s Symphonie Fantastique

As a proper manifesto of French romanticism, Berlioz’s Symphonie fantastique marked the 19th century as much as Stravinsky’s The Rite of Spring impacted the 20th. Composed in Paris − which at the time was a global crucible for artistic creation − these two masterpieces catapulted musical language into another dimension. On December 5th, 1830 the revolutionary work of 27-year-old Hector Berlioz deeply moved the musicians present in the small room of the old academy of music, among whom were Meyerbeer and Liszt, who were impressed by the extraordinary audacity of this piece presented just three years after Beethoven’s death.

History of Labels: 5 questions to Klaus Heymann, Founder of Naxos

A resident of Hong Kong for several years, from where he has built Naxos into a global success story, Klaus Heymann, the most anti-conformist player in the world of classical records, is proudly celebrating his business's 30th birthday. We spoke to him!

Scriabin's Flamboyant Raptures

Somewhat overshadowed today by his compatriots Rimsky-Korsakov, Stravinsky and Rachmaninov, Alexander Scriabin is nonetheless a key figure in Russian music. At the beginning of the 20th century, the composer and virtuoso pianist broke away from the Romantic legacy to offer a unique and innovative musical language which no one would follow. His work, deeply influenced by mystical philosophy and synaesthesia, would undergo a dazzling evolution in barely two decades, interrupted by his premature death at the age of 43.
