« The title does not lie: it is really "the art" of the Italian master who shines in this box, [...] showing the artist in a surprising form when he was already nearly eighty years old. [...] A rich complement to the sum published in 2009 by Warner. » (Translated from French – Diapason, janvier 2019 / Bertrand Boissard)

The tenor Julian Prégardien joins Alpha Classics for several recording projects that will showcase every facet of his talent, notably lieder and oratorio. His first album on the label is devoted to one of the greatest masterpieces in the history of music, Winterreise in a version with orchestra composed by Hans Zender in 1993. He scored the work for orchestral forces very different from the ensembles used in the nineteenth century (including, for example, a soprano saxophone, an accordion, a harmonica, a wind machine, a guitar and a very large percussion section). Hans Zender describes his work as a ‘creative transformation’: ‘My own reading of Winterreise does not seek a new expressive interpretation, but systematically takes advantage of the freedoms that performers normally allow themselves in an intuitive way: slowing down or accelerating the tempo, transposition into different keys, emphasising and nuancing colours.’ © Outhere Music

Clocking in at a full hour, the Octet in F Major is one of the longest works in the chamber music repertoire. Ravaged by disease, Schubert took as his starting point, as expressly stipulated in the commission he received from the Steward of the Archduke Rodolphe, Beethoven's Septet in E-flat major Op. 20, whose fame greatly chagrined its writer. In Schubert's Octet there is a certain joie de vivre cut across, as ever with him, by occasional notes of desperation (the call of the horn in the first movement, the elegiac turns of the Adagio). In order to meet his patron's very precise specifications, he used the same instrumentation, with the addition of a second violin, and he took on the same order of movements and the same tonal pattern as the Beethovian model. But while Schubert poured his work into this mould so as to please his client, he wrote a very personal work which, by his own account, would lead him towards the great symphonic form which would appear rather later with his Symphony No. 9 in C major. Isabelle Faust and friends make you laugh and cry, moving in perfect unison from one emotion to another, never hesitating to lay this sublime music bare, without any recourse to affected vibrato or excessive expression. A performance that brings us close to the fragility of existence. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Following his beautiful complete collection of Brahms’ works for Chandos – a highly recommended collection, even more satisfying than Plowright’s for BIS or Geoffroy Couteau’s for La Dolce Volta −, pianist Barry Douglas continues his phonographic adventures with Schubert. This third Schubert volume features the first of his last three sonatas in C minor titled D. 958, which was once one of Sviatoslav Richter’s hobby horses, who fully embraced its experimental nature and hallucinated blow. Douglas’ gestures are perfectly balanced, very natural, and he offers a vision exempt from madness, but not lacking in lyricism, reminiscent at times of Wilhelm Kempff or Ingrid Schaebler. A second large-scale corpus, the Six moments musicaux, D. 780 are defended by Barry Douglas with a rather restrained tempo (No. 4) to perfectly highlight all its polyphonic details and overall structure. At times, the performance feels oddly closer to Brahms… A must listen! © Théodore Grantet/Qobuz

The cellist Pieter Wispelwey and the pianist Paulo Giacometti have decided to record six albums comprising the complete works for duet of Brahms and Schubert. In other words, the pieces written for an instrument and piano. The instrument in question could be the cello, or the violin, the viola, etc. Because can a virtuoso cellist really resist the temptation to dip their toes into other repertoires than their own? After all, we know full well that the composers themselves wouldn't hesitate to transcribe, or authorise a transcription, of their own work for other instruments. And so here is the fourth volume of this collection, which hinges on Brahms's Sonate Op. 78, which was first written for violin in G major, here transcribed into D major by Paul Klengel in 1897; as well as the First Sonata, originally for clarinet Op. 120, by the very same Brahms. Of the latter work, we know that the composer himself transcribed it for the viola, and this transcription formed the basis for Pieter Wispelwey's own re-reading - very close to the viola part, within which he has simply transposed certain uncomfortably high passages down an octave. By way of overture we have Schubert's Rondo in B minor (1826), written for violin and piano, here brought down an octave (or two) for cello, although the change doesn't make any difference at all to the harmonic perception. © SM/Qobuz

Vilde Frang’s Homage is more than a captivating programme of short pieces for violin and piano, it is also a homage to the players of the Golden Age of the Violin, such as Fritz Kreisler, Leopold Auer and Joseph Szigeti. Vilde Frang has conceived the album as something of a homage to her illustrious predecessors. Born in 1986, she is clearly very much a violinist of today, and – as a Norwegian trained in Germany – she did not grow up in the Central and Eastern-European tradition of Heifetz, Kreisler, Auer and Szigeti. That being said, she brings her own, distinctively captivating magic to her instrument. © Warner Classics

The third album from Lucas Debargue with Sony Classical, this is a very original programme - the previous album offered a mixture of Bach, Beethoven and Medtner - which combines two Schubert sonatas (D.874, 1823, and D.664, 1819, respectively) and the ambitious Piano Sonata No. 2 (1910-11) from Szymanowksi, with post-Regerian momentum. Lucas Debargue, who sent shockwaves at the last Tchaikovsky competition, opens his new work with Sonata in A Minor, and gives it some truly tragic, wintry tones,  in the style of certain Russian pianists (Richter, Sofronitzky, etc.): a black and white keyboard, lit up by a recording effort that in no way dulls the harmonics. The cheeriest Sonata in A Major - which was a favourite of Wilhelm Kempff - has a similarly staid character, rather reserved. To be honest, this album seems to owe more than a little to Sviatoslav Richter. If Schubert was one of Richter's "obsessions", the Piano Sonata No. 2 from Szymanowksi was also at the heart of the Russian pianist's repertoire, who performed it several times in concert (e.g. at Parnassus, the concert for the centenary of Szymanowksi's birth on 26 November 1982 in Warsaw). A convulsive, tortured work, it is made up of two amply developed movements, which are very dark, dense and complex, including a theme and variations, crowned by a tremendous fugue. © TG/Qobuz
