Booklet Onderscheidingen 5 de Diapason
At first sight, the programme of this album could seem extravagant. Indeed, it assembles into one single volume all of Brahms’ intermezzi, the works that the composer held so dear. In doing so, Evgeni Koroliov isolates them from pieces which Brahms classifies under the same opus number and whose sequence is almost too well-known by music lovers. Frustrated by this fact and inviting us to gloss over it, Koroliov instead explores a more secretive side of Brahms: one of melancholy emotions and solitary twilight walks. And the result is overall successful: there is decidedly no monotony in this suite of slow pieces which Brahms wallowed in throughout his entire life. The almost nonchalant version which the Russian pianist portrays here seems almost to be like a series of improvisations for a few select friends. The seriousness of the expression helps us understand why Schönberg referred to Brahms as “progressive”, just as the “dissonance” of opus 117 to 119 heralds the music of the future, with its harmonic audacity so displeasing to the ears of a certain Clara Schumann, to whom some of the pieces are dedicated. © François Hudry/Qobuz

International stardom has made Lang Lang into an ambassador for the classical repertoire. Sony has chosen Beethoven's 250th birthday to release a compilation that was born of a live concert recorded in Vienna, a city which has seen the birth of so many of the composer's works. The collection takes in Sonata No.3 and No.23, also known as Appassionata. These scores are an imaginary battlefield pitting the writer's contending passions against one another. Beethoven, subject to a compulsive inspiration, uses his writing to guide, even contain, this irresistible force: the greatest liberty dammed up by reason, an apparent paradox which his art summarises well.But here Lang Lang gives us an almost fantastical Beethoven. The pianist has fun with a repertoire which exacerbates contrasts thanks to an immense palette of nuances and several liberties taken with the tempos. Although his level of technique permits him such extravagances, it must be said that he is much more conventional with Beethoven than he is with Rachmaninov. You don't fool around with the Master of Bonn. The record closes on a studio version of the first movement of Sonata No.17 (the famous Tempest), recorded for the video game Gran Turismo 5. The rather grandiloquent switch between its Largo and Allegro sections makes its mark on the text. Lang Lang serves up a very literally visual interpretation of this score, built around the most epic settings that these Beethovian storms permit. © Elsa Siffert/Qobuz

One never comes across any ordinariness when following Alexandre Tharaud’s career. This new album is as impressive in the originality of its conception as much as its meticulous musical delivery. The French pianist appears to be nostalgic towards two different golden ages: that of 17th-century music, and that of the French piano during the 1950s, specifically Marcelle Meyer’s inspiring playing which Tharaud remains motivated by. The “Versailles” which has attracted Alexandre Tharaud, and serves as the title for this recital is less Louis XIV’s opulent world of wonder and more of an intimate world of secret music. Without any difficulty, the pianist manages to make these pieces specifically written for the harpsichord his own, even going as far as inviting young harpsichordist Justin Taylor to join him for a rendition of Rameau’s Les Sauvages... for four hands on the piano! If the pianist Marcelle Meyer had recorded Rameau and Couperin in an era more liberal than today, Alexandre Tharaud has the audacity to go against musicological rules for the listener’s benefit. Of course, we are accustomed to Bach, Scarlatti, Couperin and Rameau on the modern piano, but Pancrace Royer, Robert de Visée, Jean-Henry D’Anglebert and Jacques Duphly are suddenly thrust into the limelight of this musical collection which incidentally highlights their relevance. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Anna Fedorova embraces the Russian and, more generally, romantic repertoires. Her performances with the Nodwestdeutsche Philharmonic Orchestra - given to the Great Hall of the royal Concertgebouw and watchable on her YouTube channel - prove it. The concertos by Tchaïkovski and Rachmaninoff, among others, show a passionate and talented musician of irrefutable technique. On the record, Anna Fedorova adopts the role of a storyteller, the name of her record, her second for the label Channel Classics Records. Her previous record, Four Fantaisies, had already embraced the power of the romantic imagination. Placed under the tutelage of Chopin, Liszt and Scriabin, the Ukrainian pianist acts like a poet making music out of stories. The ballads and sonnets are of epic charm and are sometimes danceable; they are often contemplative and are always filled with a strong poetic nature. The “pages” that Anna Fedorova has lifted from these three composers are episodes of great accomplishment where the piano acts as their herald. While the epic aspect of these works is particularly prevalent, the pianist by no means ignores the more poetic dimensions. For the Sonate No.4, Op.30 by Scriabin, she delivers a version that is both thrilling and fanatic. In less than 9 minutes of music, an entire new world is created (Andante) that unravels into a formidable storm (Prestissimo volando). Anna Fedorova owns this complex score: the melodies break out in surges of great clarity that listeners can delightedly move with. From Chopin to Scriabin, we are observers of a language that continually verges more and more on abstraction and harmonic invention all while witnessing the story of a musician’s development. © Elsa Siffert/Qobuz

Seventeen years after his first Schubert recording, Arcadi Volodos takes us on another dive into the world of Schubert with the very great and very turbulent Sonata in A Major, D.959. Less than two months before his death, Schubert wrote this penultimate sonata, the most fully-developed in terms of the scope of its final movement. In its crepuscular light, it enfolds the darkness of human solitude in Andantino in F Sharp Minor, which protests against a cheap happiness, first with resignation and then with indignation. Then, a cheering, somersaulting call to life, a most Viennese Scherzo, full of insousiance and serenity, which comes before the final and utterly simple movement, which suffers from no "longueur", however "divine"... Preferring intimacy to ostentation, Arcadi Volodos provides a style of expression which is no less captivating for its sobriety. Going from the most gently-whispered pianissimi to extreme fortissimi, his playing style adapts from moment to moment, a velvet touch that paints unique colours. His interior style of performance, its poetic depth, mixed with the classicism of his approach to the work, all add up to an utterly simple and natural Schubertian language. Returning to the very young Schubert, this inspired recital is rounded off with three rare Minuets (including the stunning D.600, which starts out sounding like an aria by Bach), sculpted with peerless grace and purity: a fitting end to a programme of such high musical quality. © GG/Qobuz
