Born in 1975, the Italian pianist Robert Prosseda is without equal when it comes to discovering rare works, like previously unseen pieces by Mendelssohn; or compositions for piano by Salieri, Rossini or Caetani. And here he is with Charles Gounod's works for keyboards, after having exhumed the composer's Concerto pour piano-pédalier et orchestre, which he first performed in concert in 2011.
Gounod's music for keyboards makes up about fifty pages, or rather uneven importance. He wasn't very interested in the piano, and many compositions are sketches or short pieces for his own use. For this album, Prosseda has selected the most substantial part of this corpus, with a charming Veneziana to open, followed by the equally famous Marche funèbre pour une marionnette in its excellent original version.
The six Romances sans paroles are a welcome discovery, as are the Préludes et fugues which served as preliminary studies for Bach's Clavier bien tempéré and in which Gounod used "a clear writing for two voices, lifted by a chromatism that pushes the artist onward", as Gérard Condé put it in his monumental biography of Gounod (Fayard). The Sonate pour piano à 4 mains (with Enrico Pompili) in a Schubertian style is a pleasant youthful work, probably written in 1839 at the age of 21, during his stay in Rome in the Villa Medici. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Scriabin's Flamboyant Raptures

Somewhat overshadowed today by his compatriots Rimsky-Korsakov, Stravinsky and Rachmaninov, Alexander Scriabin is nonetheless a key figure in Russian music. At the beginning of the 20th century, the composer and virtuoso pianist broke away from the Romantic legacy to offer a unique and innovative musical language which no one would follow. His work, deeply influenced by mystical philosophy and synaesthesia, would undergo a dazzling evolution in barely two decades, interrupted by his premature death at the age of 43.

Nelson Freire, a Humble Virtuoso

A child prodigy in his native country, the Brazilian pianist who passed away in November 2021 kept his distance from the noisy fanfare of fame. His enormous hands and his natural and virtuoso technique always assisted his full, powerful and mellow sound. Here Qobuz looks back at the career of a musician that for a long time was the “best-kept secret in the world of the piano”.

Wilhelm Kempff: The Most Human of Pianists

An artist of another time, Wilhelm Kempff (1895-1991) believed in inspiration: he took on music as if it were a religion, with a respectful enthusiasm for the masters that came before him. With his velvet touch, sense of phrasing and storytelling quality, Wilhelm Kepff’s art was like that of a waking dream. Half poet, half divine, during a time when expression of emotion triumphed all. He recorded many times the works of his favourite composers, in particular his ‘god’ Beethoven, for whom Kempff is well known and left behind three complete sonatas in keeping with his own maturation and the evolution of his recording technique.
