The Fascinating George Gershwin on PentaTone Classics is a recital program fitted together from a mixture of George Gershwin's popular songs and concert works as rescored for violin and piano. Bulgarian violinist Vesko Eschkenazy is the main culprit, his co-conspirator is pianist Ludmil Angelov, and the third wheel in this project is composer and arranger Bob Zimmerman. This appears to be the first all-violin Gershwin album since the advent of Menhuin and Grappelli Play Gershwin back in 1988. Gershwin's only fully authentic work for the combination of violin and piano is Short Story, written for Samuel Dushkin. While the piece is mentioned in Zimmerman's liner notes, inexplicably it is not included on the disc. Jascha Heifetz' familiar arrangements of the Preludes (3) are included, and there is an unusual bonus heard at the start of The Fascinating George Gershwin, a reconstruction of an arrangement made by Heifetz of An American in Paris. It is short at just five and a quarter minutes, and does not sound entirely "finished," but the arrangement is nonetheless "fascinating," fully justifying the title of this release. The performance of the Lullaby for string quartet, with the added contribution of members from the string section of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra, is very nicely realized here. The rest of the arrangements are by Zimmerman, and the settings of the individual songs, such as Clap yo' Hands and Someone to Watch Over Me, are good. The two medleys, Triple Tribute and Fantasy in Seven Colors, are not up to the standard of the rest, relying on slapdash transitions between numbers and played in generally leaden tempi. As with all things PentaTone, the Super Audio CD sounds fantastic, although a closer, more intimate perspective on the solo pieces would have been preferable. Gershwin nuts will probably like this, and for a more general audience The Fascinating George Gershwin will provide for a decent, if not great, listening experience.

Jordi Savall - La música, la vida, la discografía

Llovía a raudales durante aquella noche de octubre en el Bugey, donde por cierto suele llover a menudo en esta época del año. Era casi media noche. Éramos unos cincuenta apasionados esperando en el silencio, la humedad y el frío, este concierto del Festival de Ambronay. Luego, sin ruido alguno, llegó Jordi Savall, enfundado en un impermeable blanco y empapado, a lo Humphrey Bogart en Casablanca, apretando una caja con forma de cuerpo humano. Con gestos lentos, extrajo de ella, no una metralleta, sino una viola de gamba que empezó a manejar y a afinar con infinita precaución. Y el milagro nos envolvió.

Kœchlin, el alquimista

Anclada en la tradición pero también muy innovadora, la inmensa obra de Koechlin, de un lenguaje extremadamente personal, ha desconcertado a sus contemporáneos debido a sus múltiples facetas, a su libertad y a su dimensión filosófica. Pero ha sido finalmente la grabación de su música lo que nos ha permitido tener conciencia de los sonidos de este alquimista, de este genial profeta adelantado a su tiempo. Y celebramos este 27 de noviembre el 150 aniversario de su nacimiento…

François Couperin, el clavecín moderno

Músico predilecto de Luis XIV, François Couperin (1668-1733) era la estrella del clavecín en el siglo XVIII, un instrumento prestigioso entonces en su apogeo (antes de caer en el olvido en el XIX), cuyo concepto revolucionó, arrastrando en su estela a los demás virtuosos de la época, Dandrieu o Rameau. El clavecinista canadiense Olivier Fortin comenta para Qobuz la vocación de «Couperin el Grande».
