The first feature of this Concerto album mentioned in its liner notes is the proprietary recording and mastering technique, which includes recording using 32-bit digital sound and mastering at 64-bits. Impressive technology to be sure, but what affect does it have on the actual music being performed? Unfortunately for listeners, better technology does not mean a better album. Concerto's sound is extremely sterile and much too close. In the case of this album with cellist Silvia Chiesa and pianist Maurizio Baglini, it's analogous to listening to a recital with one's ear pressed against the cello. Every slight movement, every shift, every fingerfall…everything is audible. What's missing for Chiesa's performance is any bloom or expansiveness to her sound. With sonatas by Chopin and Debussy, this kind of barren sound is rather off-putting. Her technical execution is generally strong; intonation is usually solid, shifts are clean, and careful attention is paid to dynamics and articulation. Interplay between cello and piano is fluid and dynamic. The album also includes an exciting work from 2006 by composer Azio Corghi entitled D'après…cinq chansons d'èlite was dedicated to the Chiesa/Baglini duo, which does great justice to a composition that cleverly incorporates French Revolution songs into a dynamic, provocatively rhythmic backdrop. While listeners interested in new repertoire for the instrument will find this album intriguing for the Corghi alone, the disappointing sound quality throughout should steer them elsewhere for superior recordings of the Chopin and Debussy sonatas.

Radu Lupu: an Understated Genius

Radu Lupu was a poet, magician and pianist who pursued the indescribable. The Romanian artist’s musical approach was brought to life by his tormented and fiercely introverted personality, which was always shrouded in mystery. When sat at his piano, he would knead the keys like dough, seeking a powerful, consistent sound. Radu Lupu passed away on the 17th of April 2022, leaving behind a relatively small, yet incredibly valuable, discographic legacy.

The Earth’s Song: The World of Gustav Mahler

What could have prompted Gustav Mahler to compose a work as unclassifiable as this one? Written between 1907 and 1908, a pivotal period in Mahler's life, The Song of the Earth occupies a special place within his oeuvre. It combines the “fin de siècle” spirit with the fascination for the exotic that was spreading amongst his peers at the time. Vienna was in turmoil when this music was composed, and the piece oscillates between the notions of farewell and new beginnings. With a lot of layers to peel back, The Song of the Earth definitely merits a closer look.

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.
