Central to Hélène Grimaud's first live album for Deutsche Grammophon is the significance she finds in the slow movement of the Piano Concerto No. 23 in A major, K. 488, of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. This movement is a touchstone for her, insofar as she regards it as the most sublime music, "where you find the real Mozart." She has also stated, "Even if this movement were all we had, that would be enough." Because of the emphasis Grimaud places on this poignant Adagio in F sharp minor, listeners may be tempted to cut to the chase and skip the other tracks to hear her interpretation.

Anyone with even a passing interest in the sultry, enigmatic and sensual music of Sorabji needs to have this set. It is a most thoroughly engrossing anthology from a brilliant pianist who is a veteran in Sorabji terms. He has lived with and reflected on this music for approaching forty years. Time and again while listening to this set I was struck by his loving attention to detailing, voicings and speeds. The music communicates Sorabji's striving after transcending the limitations of keyboard, of mechanical action and of the pedestrianly objective.

It is said that in 1992 when the BBC Radio 3 broadcasted Stanze in the harp version, the phones of the radio station were buzzing with callers asking for the name of the composer. Since then the fame of Stanze and of Ludovico Einaudi has continued to grow. This is not surprising if we consider the appeal and communicative spirit of these pieces. Even today they represent a model for the post-classic genre, still loved and imitated, which Einaudi - uncontested maestro - was able to imprint with an all Italian original and refined tenor.

The Vienneseborn Carl Czerny, student and confidant of Beethoven and teacher of Liszt, found fame in his native city by writing a series of fashionable pieces, among which numbered fantasies and potpourris as well as a series of important pedagogic studies. His large-scale pianistic works are of great interest and include the First Piano Concerto, in D minor, which expertly balances foreboding, pastoral richness and exuberant brio, a bravura Introduzione e Rondo Brillant and a vivacious salute to Webers Euryanthe. Tuck is dazzlingly articulate and secure in the countless runs and fast passagework Czerny asks of her, wrote MusicWeb International of 8.573417. This is a world-premiere recording.

This important set contains the sixteen Beethoven sonatas that Wilhelm Kempff recorded for Grammophon in Germany between 1940 and 1943. Several are reissued here for the first time since their original release on 78rpm discs and none are currently available elsewhere. The sound is excellent for the period and all reveal the young Kempff at his best, in performances that compliment his later thoughts. The release is the companion of two previous APR releases of early Kempff Beethoven recordings the late sonatas (APR6018) and piano concertos 1, 3, 4 & 5 (APR6019), both of which received excellent reviews and were amongst APRs best sellers.

In the fall of 2011 David Thor Jonsson recorded a session and a solo concert at Telus Studio in The Banff Centre, Banff, Canada – the heart of the Canadian Rockies. These recordings have come to be Piano Improvisations II. In and around Banff are magical places. They are ancient, huge, quiet; some are sacred. Being surrounded by the enormity of the Rockies makes one feel very small, and prone to wander off for many hours, gazing at the endless beauty and power. Lake Minnewanka's name translates to "Water of the Spirits" from the Dakotan Siouan language of Nakoda. Aboriginal people long inhabited areas around Lake Minnewanka, as early as 10,000 years ago. You can still feel the spirits there… Some of this music is a dedication to that invisible power of human energy. This is the second album in the solo piano improv series.

Sony Classical is delighted to bring you the latest album from the sensational pianist, Oliver Schnyder, featuring a selection of Ludwig van Beethoven’s greatest works including his complete piano concertos and selected overtures. Dubbed the “piano poet” and with over 12,000 fans on Facebook alone, Schynder’s aesthetic approach is compared with that of the great pianists Kempff, Schnabel, Fischer and Barenboim. Ludwig van Beethoven stands for independence of mind, for revolutionary ideas, for music that reaches far beyond his own time.
