Hi-Res Auszeichnungen Qobuz' Schallplattensammlung - Hi-Res Audio
The simple fact of the matter is that, compared with all previous releases of Ashkenazy's stupendous 1974-1975 recordings of Rachmaninov's 24 Preludes, this 96kHz 24-bit remastering is vastly better. Where the original LP release was warm and lush but a tad hazy, and earlier CD releases were warm and lush but a bit hard, this CD release is warm and lush -- but also clear and bright as polished crystal. Thus, while Ashkenazy's luminous lyricism, soulful sensuality, and blazing virtuosity are as manifest as ever -- and few pianists have ever matched him for these qualities in this repertoire -- what had previously seemed like his unfortunate tendency to overpedal in heavier textures is here shown to be a flaw in earlier releases, not his playing. More significantly, the remastering allows the colors and nuances of Ashkenazy's performances to sound more cleanly and accurately. In the hard-charging B flat major Prelude, the delicately radiant G sharp minor Prelude, even the played-to-death C sharp minor Prelude, Ashkenazy's playing seems much more subtle and dazzling -- which, considering his performances have long been considered among the deepest and strongest ever recorded, is quite an achievement. Everyone who treasures Rachmaninov's music should hear this release -- whether they've heard the earlier releases or not. © TiVo

Booklet Auszeichnungen Pianiste Maestro - Choc de Classica
As an advocate for the music of Sergey Rachmaninov, Vladimir Ashkenazy has few equals among contemporary pianists, and his recordings for Decca have been regarded by aficionados and critics alike as essential listening. Because of this, it may come as a surprise that this 2011 album of the Variations on a Theme of Chopin and the Piano Sonata No. 1 in D minor is a first for Ashkenazy, who has never before recorded these early works. Chopin's Prelude in C minor is the subject of the variations, and its brooding tone made it a natural for Rachmaninov, whose music from this period was often cast in the minor mode and heavily inspired by the darker aspects of Romanticism. The Piano Sonata No. 1 has often been overshadowed by the more famous Piano Sonata No. 2 in B flat minor, and its fairly loose structure, long displays of virtuosity, and meandering thematic material have made it a difficult piece to pull off convincingly. Ashkenazy is quite efficient and focused in the Chopin Variations, and he makes a fair case for the Piano Sonata, insofar as he gives it a coherent expression, avoids sentimentality, and tightens its form by maintaining the music's momentum. Newcomers to Ashkenazy's Rachmaninov should give the four piano concertos priority, for these recordings with André Previn and the London Symphony Orchesta are landmarks. But more experienced listeners and Rachmaninov fans will find this solo album to be an important discovery, if not exactly a revelation. © TiVo

Hi-Res Booklet Auszeichnungen 5 de Diapason
This very fine recording of chamber music by Shostakovich spans careers, not only that of the composer, but also that of 79-year-old pianist Vladimir Ashkenazy, who played the Piano Trio No. 2 in E minor, Op. 67, for Shostakovich at his home as a young man, but hasn't recorded it until now. There are other strong recordings of this tragic wartime work, which merges the personal and the external in a way that only Shostakovich and Beethoven could do, but sample the heavy, monumental treatment of the slow movement Piano Trio No. 2 in E minor, Op. 67, and you'll find it's Ashkenazy through and through. The program includes the rarely heard Piano Trio No. 1 in C minor, Op. 8, a hotshot bit of formally ingenious, student, late Romanticism that the aging pianist catches perfectly, and the late Viola Sonata, Op. 147, a work that can collapse under its own weight, but that here is charismatic and transcendent. The other players, none of them Russian, adapt with a sure touch to piano-driven performances. A wonderful tribute from one great artist to another who inspired him, beautifully recorded. © TiVo

Hi-Res Booklet Auszeichnungen Hi-Res Audio
British composer Howard Blake seems to lead two careers, writing music for films and for the concert hall, yet this division is somewhat arbitrary because so much of his work has crossover appeal. The music for the 1982 film The Snowman, for example, has become one of Blake's most recognizable scores, and its signature song, Walking in the Air, has become a genuine hit, covered by pop and even heavy metal artists. Blake has also written evocative music for the films The Duellists and The Changeling, and their themes are included in this 2014 Decca release by pianist Vladimir Ashkenazy. In many instances, Blake composes in a relaxed contemporary classical style, as in the series of 24 piano pieces in Lifecycle, of which 10 are presented here, including the keyboard version of Walking in the Air. Blake is an unabashed tonalist with a pleasing lyrical gift that makes his music instantly accessible, though its mild harmonies and simple melodies are rarely challenging. However, the Dances for 2 pianos and the Sonata for 2 pianos show more rhythmically active music infused with jazz harmonies, and Ashkenazy's performances with his son, Vovka Ashkenazy, are easily the most entertaining selections of this disc. © TiVo

Hi-Res Booklet
Obwohl Vladimir Ashkenazy schon seit über einem halben Jahrhundert auf dem „Klaviermarkt“ spielt, ist diese Aufnahme von Bachs Französischen Suiten, im März 2016 und April 2017 eingespielt, nagelneu, also nicht eine Art Nachdruck, sondern die Frucht einer lebenslangen Reifung. In den letzten zwölf Jahren hat sich Ashkenazy verstärkt der Musik Johann Sebastian Bachs zugewandt, wobei er zu Beginn, 2005, die beiden Bände des Wohltemperierten Klaviers einspielte. Ashkenazy benutzt meistenteils die Peters-Urtextausgabe und bezieht einige alternative Lesarten aus anderen Quellen ein, mit dem Ziel eine Klarheit des Klangs zu erreichen: „Ich hatte den Vorzug, noch mehr von Bach einspielen zu dürfen, und habe versucht, meinen Klang so klar wie möglich zu gestalten. Die Musik ist durchsichtig, und Bachs eigenes Instrument war ungeheuer klar; das muss man in bei Stücken mit tieferer Basslinie und komplexerer Satzstruktur im Hinterkopf behalten. Ich verziere kaum und stelle mir keinen Cembalo-Klang vor – denn heute steht uns das Klavier zur Verfügung. Gleichwohl versuche ich, aus den heutigen Gegebenheiten das Beste zu machen und das Gefüge der Stimmen so klar wie möglich herauszuarbeiten.“ Das wird wahrscheinlich irgendwelche – sowieso nutzlose und sterile – Diskussionen beenden, ob Bach auf etwas anderem als dem Cembalo gespielt werden darf, oder er auch das "Recht" hat auf dem Klavier gespielt zu werden - seien es moderne oder gar ältere.
