Two young Belgian soloists—including Lorenzo Gatto, despite the Italian consonance of the name—have been gathering for several years around Beethoven, and here is their interpretation of three Beethoven sonatas: the First written even before the end of the 18th Century—1798—, followed by the very last that is the Tenth Op. 96 from 1812—created by the infamous Pierre Rode on violin, and the archduke Rudolph of Austria who, incidentally, must have been an amazing pianist—, to finish with one of the most famous ones, the Fifth called “The Spring Sonata” (a name not chosen by the composer). Despite dating “only” from 1801, this sonata is incredibly different from the First regarding its architectural maturity, its intense lyricism and its audacities of all kinds. Gatto, who won the Queen Elisabeth Competition, plays on nothing less than the Stradivarius “Joachim”, while Libeer, a chamber music enthusiast, has a field day on a big concert piano with parallel strings and of an almost orchestral sound. Their first volume, released in 2016, was more than noticed by the critics and the audience—and was a great success on Qobuz. © SM/Qobuz

Founded in Budapest at the height of the war by its first violin Sándor Végh in 1940, the Végh Quartet (here called "Végh and His Quartet"), which has delighted record collectors all over the world, played with exactly the same line-up for 40 years, a fact which is the source of its coherence and deep knowledge of its repertoire. In 1946 the Végh Quartet left Hungary to set up in Paris and take part in the Geneva Competition, which they won with brio, following an exceptional performance of Bartók's Fifth Quartet, which created a sensation. Sandor Végh had been taught by Jenő Hubay and Zoltán Kodály, before directing the first outings of the famous Hungarian Quartet, which worked closely with Bartók on his works. After taking this much-coveted prize, in an era when international competitions were still few and far between, the Végh Quartet was propelled into a career on the world stage: they were applauded all over the world, as far away as South Africa. They enjoyed lasting fame thanks to their two recordings of Beethoven's quartets (one made in Boston in 1952; and another in the early 1970s in La Chaux-de-Fonds in Switzerland), as well as those of Béla Bartók, before they wound up in 1980 following a change of second violin and viola player. As for Sándor Végh, worshipped by Carlos Kleiber, he would pursue a career as a conductor up until his death in 1997. This album is the first leg (two others are already announced and in the works) of a series of publications containing rare or previously-unreleased recordings. There are a lot of surprises here, with Ernest Bloch's splendid Second Quartet, Samuel Barber's entire Quartet in B Minor, from before his famous Adagio, arranged for string orchestra for Toscanini, drowned out the rest of his work. We also can't resist the Second Quartet that Arthur Honegger wrote in his youth, inspired by his admiration for Beethoven's quartets; or the work by Hanns Jelinek, the now-somewhat-forgotten Austrian composer who studied under Berg, and, last but not least, Alban Berg's spellbinding Lyric Suite. © François Hudry/Qobuz

The Triple Concerto is recorded here in concert, which is sure to guarantee a bit of spontaneity for a work of great symphonic dimensions – 35 minutes long – which owes as much to chamber music as to concert symphonies. There is still the question of whether it's better to call in an established trio for the triple soloist part: Anne Gastinel, Gil Shaham and Nicholas Angelich didn't know each other musically beforehand, and they opted, here again, for spontaneity and stepping out of the routine: which pays off brilliantly, as the orchestra is directed by Paavo Järvi, who can tailor the performances so well. His judicious eye is indispensable to this rather dense work, which tends to move in circles in terms of tonalities. The album closes with the Gassenhauer trio for clarinet (with Andreas Ottensamer), cello and piano (with the same soloists as for the Concerto), recorded in studio. The title Gassenhauer was chosen after the fact, in view of the different themes in the third movement, which came from an opera which was a smash hit in Vienna - and the Viennese slang of the day, a "hit" is called a "Gassenhauer".

For his fourth release on the Fuga Libera label, the pianist and fortepianist Piet Kuijken, professor at the Royal Conservatory of Brussels and the Antwerp Conservatory, presents a programme of music by Ludwig van Beethoven. The starting point of this double album is an artistic approach that is both pedagogical and musical: the first part contains pieces such as the Sonate Pathétique and the Sonata op.110 performed on a historical piano (a Tomkison original from 1808), while the second invites you to compare this with pieces of the same magnitude – the Appassionata Sonata and the imposing op.111, amongst others – played on a modern piano. A text written by the eminent musician invites you to follow the artist’s approach, within the same type of repertory when faced with these two different instruments. A sensitive and interesting album to help you discover all the different facets of this artist! © Fuga Libera/Outhere

More precisely: 10 April 1953 in the great hall of the Holy Orders of the baroque castle of Ludwigsburg. Clara Haskil, who sadly only had five more years left to live, albeit the happiest and most fertile of her life: with Swiss nationality and a booked-out diary, she could finally give herself over to music without worrying about survival or exile. This most prodigious period of recording gave us Mozart, to be sure, but also rarer repertoires, like Ravel or Debussy, as documented in this publication - in which, indeed, she avoids Mozart altogether! The pièce de résistance is surely the 32nd Sonata Op. 111 by Beethoven, which she plays quite differently from how we are used to hearing it: under her fingers, the fire still crackles, but Haskil knows not to make it a perpetual volcano, which would harm the discourse. Who knows whether it was her fragile health that forced her to go easy - but whatever the reason, musically at least, it is a good thing she did. The programme continues with some rather more transparent pieces from Schumann – the Abegg Variations in particular – before sojourning a while on the other bank of the Rhine with two Études by Debussy, which she plays dreamily; Sonatine by Ravel which she dreams , playfully, before closing with a choral from Bach (the Cantor who opened the proceedings), and a delicate adieu from Schumann, "Abschied" from the Waldszenen. The grande dame of the piano passes into tender silence, rather than ending the concert with virtuoso explosions. 10 April 1953 was a fine day! © SM/Qobuz
