Following the success of his first Decca release of solo piano music by Chopin, Liszt, and Ravel, Benjamin Grosvenor demonstrates his aptitude in the concerto repertoire on his second CD, Rhapsody in Blue, recorded with James Judd and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. This is a refreshing change from the usual Tchaikovsky or Rachmaninov concertos one hears from young artists eager to impress, and Grosvenor is clever enough to play not only engaging concertos by Saint-Saëns, Ravel, and Gershwin, but to toss in short bon-bons by these composers to sweeten the program. Grosvenor has sometimes described as a Romantic pianist, which suggests anything from excessive sentimentality to headstrong individualism, but this is something of an exaggeration. It is true that Grosvenor has the passion and expressive grandeur for music of the period, notably displayed in Saint-Saëns' grandiose Piano Concerto No. 2 in G minor, but he also possesses a modern sensibility that is ideal for the lighter textures and piquant expressions found in Ravel's effervescent Piano Concerto in G major and Gershwin's insouciant Rhapsody in Blue (performed here in the original jazz band version arranged by Ferde Grofé). Grosvenor is much more rounded in his tastes and abilities than may be apparent from reviews, but given time, his judgment in programming will be as obvious as his prodigious skills at the keyboard. Decca's reproduction is close-up and vivid, so the piano has real presence, and its volume almost eclipses the orchestra at times.

Fatma Said - "So bin ich"

Die in Berlin wohnende ägyptische Sopranistin Fatma Said vereint auf ihrem CD-Debüt französische, spanische und arabische Lieder.

Henry Mancini, Mann mit Stil

Raffiniert, humorvoll, sensibel…Mit diesen Worten wird oft Henry Mancinis Musik beschrieben. Auch 23 Jahre nach seinem Tod gilt er immer noch als einer der größten und einflussreichsten Filmmusikkomponisten. Der Grund liegt wohl darin, dass er neben sanft klingenden, leichten Werken, die ihn berühmt gemacht haben ("Frühstück bei Tiffanys", "Der rosarote Panther"…), zugleich mit dynamischeren Kompositionen auch die komplexere Variante seiner musikalischen Ausdrucksmöglichkeiten zeigen konnte.

Nils Frahm, ein untypischer Pianist

Das Talent von Nils Frahm wird seit zehn Jahren von Kritikern klassischer Musik sowie von Liebhabern elektronischer Experimente gleichermaßen hoch gelobt. Ob er auf einer Kirchenorgel oder auf einem mit Effektpedalen ausgestatteten Synthesizer spielt, der deutsche Pianist blickt immer nach vorn und das macht ihn anscheinend so überzeugend. Zum heutigen Piano Day, den er ins Leben gerufen hat, um dem Klavier und seinen Meistern Ehre zu gebühren, drehen wir eine Runde durch seine Diskographie.
