After several albums respectively dedicated to Liszt's Transcendental Études or Mussogorsky and Schumann, or to Concertos by Tchaikovsky (the First) and Prokofiev (the Second) for the Myrios Classics label, Russian-American pianist Kirill Gerstein is diving into the colourful and rhythmical world of Gershwin. Happily, he has chosen the Jazz Band (1924) version of Rhapsody in Blue, which he has transformed into an almost-cubist work, in perfect symbiosis with the equally-keen work of David Robertson: the piano-playing is really angular, sometimes chilling; the brass recalls the most modernist work of Bartók or Prokofiev or the new American music, at the start of the 1920s. The same goes for 1925's Concerto in F, the extraordinary Earl Wild's cool playing under the direction of Arthur Fiedler (RCA, 1959) dissipates with Gerstein and Robertson, to make way for more percussive sounds. Kirill Gerstein also offers - this album being made up of recordings made in concert - various arrangements (or paraphrases) of some of the more famous American songs, including a particularly juicy I Got Rhythm from Earl Wild. A particularly stimulating album for the winter months. © 2018 Théodore Grantet/Qobuz

Rachel Podger, “the queen of the baroque violin” (Sunday Times), has established herself as a leading interpreter of the Baroque and Classical music periods. A creative programmer, she is the founder and Artistic Director of Brecon Baroque Festival and her ensemble Brecon Baroque. This new album brings together the compositions by four violinist-composers, three Italians and one German, all born during the last quarter of the 17th Century and who all died (except Vivaldi, who died younger) around the 1760s. These works explore the imagination of the then revolutionary form that was the Sonata for violin and continuo. Weaving together stylised ancient dances and the more Germanic preludic tradition, these Sonatas transport us to a world of musical amazement. Rachel Podger says: “The four composers’ connections read like a popular comedy! Violin virtuosos Verachini and Pisendel had an argument which resulted in Veracini flying into a rage and throwing himself from first floor a balcony, damaging his foot and limping forever after. Verachini amazed Tartini with his astonishingly smooth bowing technique, whereupon Tartini locked himself away to practice. Pisendel studied with Tartini and Vivaldi...” Let us add that one of Vivaldi’s Sonatas here recorded is dedicated to Pisendel. Podger gives great unity to those works, composed all around Europe at a time when powerful musical influences were continuously changing styles and fashions.
