Classic, Discographies Author: artmuss , This is one of three big boxes from EMI — the others feature Mozart and Schubert — which represent something of a departure for a major company. EMI have probably issued comparable size boxes before but most probably in anniversary or complete edition mode, and undoubtedly costing more than this one which comes in at hardly more than? That territory belongs to the likes of Brilliant Classics who issued some 40 disc boxes of major composers about three years ago at under?
Once one has mastered how to open the box, essentially by dismantling it, the contents look crammed but there is quite a lot of extraneous cardboard inside to hold the paper-thin disc envelopes in place.
For one moment I mistook the cardboard for two chunky booklets but, in terms of documentation, there is simply a track listing. Dates of recordings are given in years and on a "wholesale" basis — for example the piano sonatas are noted as The earliest date seems to be so it seems likely that all are in stereo and the two violin romances from appear to be the only digital recordings.
Most of the material is from the late s and s and some of it may be having a last outing before EMI lose the exclusivity of the copyright. His beginnings are always terrific. Although the Allegro vivace opens piano and in unison octaves, it is lively and alert, and some beautiful counterpoint ensues beginning in the ninth bar. Strong dynamic contrasts, a lyrical second subject, virtuoso passages bristling with energy and some original Beethoven fingering that shows he must have had huge hands!
I am not the only pianist not to observe the second repeat; I have tried, but it never seemed to make any sense. The second movement, Largo appassionato, is simply beautiful. The trick is to make the chords as legato as possible with the fingers, avoiding the pedal in order to keep the bass pizzicato, while keeping the long musical line. Even here it is important to follow carefully the contrapuntal lines in the passages between the statements of the theme.
When the key suddenly turns to D minor instead of major, a truly orchestral sound is needed. A scherzo follows, marked Allegretto, which can seem quite frivolous, but it is not easy to get every note in the opening gesture to sparkle as it should, especially when presented by the left hand.
The ensuing trio in the minor key is much more dramatic with its sudden fortissimos. I feel that the repeats should be observed in the da capo—especially in the first section, which would otherwise be far too short. A good dose of Viennese charm helps the interpretation of the final movement of this beautiful sonata. The first two movements appear to have been written before his concert tour to Prague, Dresden and Berlin in early The whole sonata was published in , along with the other two in the opus.
A Mannheim rocket upwards arpeggio gets things going after the full chord on the down beat. This is followed by a sighing figure in total contrast. The second theme, in A flat major, is very expressive and lyrical. This movement, indeed the whole sonata, is not hard to read through but very hard to play well, paying attention to every detail. When the hemidemisemiquavers enter in the right hand there can be some slight rubato, but no big rallentando.
The gentle pulsating accompaniment must not be disturbed. A great sense of stillness needs to be communicated to the listener, which, it goes without saying, must first be felt by the interpreter. Violinsonaten nos. Division Polydor ; Antony : distrib.
