Jorge Bolet was one of those artists whose performances in the studio often failed to catch the fire that sparked in live recitals. It is no wonder that among Bolet's greatest recordings is the RCA two-LP set of a Carnegie Hall recital of 1974. So the title of this CD, Bolet Rediscovered Liszt Recital holds out a promise that is not completely fulfilled. What was rediscovered is, in fact, a master tape of a 1972 studio recording of eight pieces by Franz Liszt. It is a very superior recorded program, to be sure, and ought to please the fans of composer and pianist alike. The program notes state that the reason for the failure to release the tape is still unknown, but speculates the idea was probably to make a two-LP set with future recordings, and that for some reason the master got stored without proper documentation until discovered at the turn of the century. In some cases it provides interpretations that essentially duplicate releases that have long been familiar -- for instance, the Funérailles or his unusually dreamy version of the Campanella etude. On the other hand, the Grand Galop chromatique is here fleet and playful (in contrast with his sober Decca recording) and his Liebestraum and Un sospiro are entirely successful. The most valuable recording is Bolet's only taping of the Rhapsodie espagnole, and impulsive recording with textual retouching by Bolet. Then there is an unbuttoned run-through of Liszt's Tannhäuser Overture arrangement that Bolet played after a 1973 session was over, perhaps unaware that the engineers managed to get the recorders running in the nick of time. Although there are several finger faults, there is a joy in Bolet playing essentially for himself that comes close to his public recital fire. The sound in all cases is fine.

Jorge Bolet, the Epitome of Franz Liszt

Franz Liszt’s music re-emerged in the early 1980’s and for once it was played in a way that was both poetic and lyrical, rather than simply getting the notes out. Jorge Bolet recorded a ground-breaking anthology of the Hungarian composer for DECCA, as well as other recordings for the Spanish label ENSAYO, for RCA in the 1970’s, for EVEREST in 1960, and studio and radio recordings in the 1950’s.

Fabio Biondi & Europa Galante, 30 years of freedom

The Italian violinist and conductor Fabio Biondi, notably famous for his rendition of the Four Seasons by Vivaldi with his ensemble Europa Galante, is one of the musicians who actively spurns the idea of separating and compartmentalising music. We take a look back at the career of one of the most versatile and open-minded classical musicians of our time, and an essential figure of baroque violin.

Peter Thomas in Orbit

In Germany they have their own Michel Legrand: his name is Peter Thomas! His eccentric film music left its mark on a whole generation of viewers in the 60s and 70s and since the 90s he has often been cited and sampled by young pop groups. The cult composer passed away on May 17th, 2020. We met him three years earlier, on the dawn of his 92nd birthday.
