Pauline Viardot, daughter of the famous tenor, composer, operatic impresario and teacher, Manuel García, and friend of Schumann and Chopin, was a mezzo-soprano and composer. Her Violin Sonatina in A minor reflects her operatic background with its long melodic lines. Her son Paul, the dedicatee of Fauré’s great A minor Sonata, wrote three beautifully crafted, expressively rich violin sonatas over an almost fifty-year period.

Frank Peter Zimmermann is an excellent violinist, and an ideal Mozart interpreter. His rhythms are clean and crisp, his ornamentation appropriate, his vibrato always tasteful and expressive, and the tempos he and conductor Radoslaw Szulc adopt well-nigh ideal. Indeed, Mozart seems to represent the dividing line between successful historically informed and modern violin performance, with the former usually sounding dismal and the latter almost invariably proving satisfactory, at a minimum. This is ironic because, as we know, Mozart’s dad wrote the major 18th-century treatise on violin playing, and it’s amusing to hear performances that claim to follow Leopold’s rules come out sounding like dreck, as they so often do.

After the success of her recordings with music by Vivaldi, Biber, and Corelli, Lina Tur Bonet focuses for this new release on the French female composer Elisabeth Jacquet de la Guerre, a protegee of Louis XIV. The six Sonates pour le viollon et pour le clavecin by Elisabeth-Claude Jacquet de La Guerre, dedicated to Louis XIV, appeared in Paris in 1707, the year when the models and the most recent invenzioni of the Italian sonata arrived in France, immediately captivating composers such as Louis-Antoine Dornel, Michel Blavet, Francois Couperin and Jean-Marie Leclair l’aine.

The contribution of the American composer, teacher and pianist Vincent Persichetti to the harpsichord repertoire is unique among 20th-century composers. He wrote a diverse selection of music, including an opera and nine symphonies, while his substantial output for harpsichord offers a vivid and rich variety of expression. The ingenious contrapuntal writing alludes to baroque ornamentation while remaining firmly rooted in the contemporary idiom. Lyrical passages and technical brilliance abound with vitality and inventiveness.

This new recording presents the three Piano Sonatas by Frédéric Chopin, large-scale works by a composer by was primarily a master of the small form, the Nocturne, Ballade, Prelude, Mazurka or Impromptu. Chopin’s first Sonata is from his youth, an ambitious work in semiclassical style but already bearing Chopin’s characteristics in its lyricism and freedom. The second Piano Sonata is the most famous, including the iconic Funeral March, a passionate 4-movement work of staggering originality. The third Sonata is the most forward-looking in its intense chromatism and advanced harmony.

Today when Frank Peter Zimmermann says that Mozart has always been easy for him, he needs only call to mind his debut concert at the age of ten - when he played Mozart's G major Concerto K. 216; or when, some 30 years ago, as a fresh 20-year-old, the same FPZ made his first recording of the five concertos for EMI; and then if one factors in that over the years that each of these Mozart works has passed through his hands nearly 300 times in concert, then one can begin to appreciate the intense physical and spiritual experience that Frank Peter Zimmermann brings to these new recordings.

Among the projects that Columbia had arranged with Gould were the complete recordings of Bach’s solo keyboard works and the Beethoven sonatas. Both were to remain unfinished. Long after becoming a concert drop-out, Gould now planned to become a “record drop-out”: “My contract with CBS runs a bit beyond my 50th year. After that, there is going to be a major change of gears, much as there was twenty years ago.”
