Diana Baker's tone is sparkling, never ugly or brassy, and she navigates her way through Gubaidulina´s muscular virtuosity with the finesse of a Russian ballerina. An important recording.

Sofia Gubaidulina - Solo Piano Works (1994)
Classical | EAC (APE, CUE & LOG) | 207 MB

"Andreas Haefliger is a musician first and pianist second. He is a pianist to watch but, more importantly, he is a pianist to listen to."
―Chicago Tribune

The works on this disc comprise Sofia Gubaïdulina's complete solo piano output. They come from her early mature period in the sixties and seventies, yet they pre-date her international rise to prominence that occurred in the eighties and nineties. Though they lack the unusual instrumental disposition Gubaïdulina often revels in, these piano works bear all the hallmarks of spiky rhythm and harmony, unusual instrumental colouring, and hardy Russian poeticism, that are so richly apparent in her other music.

Simon Smith - Alfred Schnittke: Complete Piano Music (2014)
Genre: Classical | MP3 320 kbps | 02:26:25 | ~336 Mb
Label: Delphian | Tracks: 24 | Rls.date: 2016

In 2002 Simon Smith made his recording debut on Delphian in a disc of James MacMillans complete piano music, paired with Stuart MacRaes Piano Sonata. Recordings of music by Hafliði Hallgrímsson and Thomas Wilson have followed. In this new, substantial outing Smith turns from music-making in Scotland to another of his lifelong loves, the music of Alfred Schnittke. This two-disc set comprises Schnittkes entire published output for solo piano (including one piece for piano duet and another for six hands at one keyboard). The Russian composers music often makes gargantuan demands of the player. Smiths astonishing dynamic palette and heartfelt musicality combine here to stunning effect.
Hae-won Chang - Jacques Ibert: Complete Piano Music (1992) Reissue 2000 [Repost, New Rip]

Hae-won Chang - Jacques Ibert: Complete Piano Music (1992) Reissue 2000
EAC | FLAC | Tracks (Cue&Log) ~ 214 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 180 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans included
Genre: Classical | Label: Naxos | # 8.554720 | Time: 01:10:45

Jacques Ibert’s piano music isn’t exactly the most exciting part of his output, amounting to a series of short picturesque pieces written in a bland neo-classical vein, with just a hint of impressionism or humor here and there to liven up the expression. Lack of both imagination and strong features have kept these pieces away from the current concert repertoire, but on CD they make nice if quickly forgotten listening. The collection of Histoires, including the famous Le petit âne blanc (The Little White Donkey), comes off the best, along with Les rencontres, a little suite in the form of a ballet that displays some lively melodic figures underlined by slightly spicy harmonies, as in the softly swinging The Creoles. The other pieces do little else than round off the total timing of the CD. Hae-won Chang plays with charm and delicacy, with a clean and neat technique that is just what these unpretentious pieces require. The recording is well balanced and truthful.

Genre: Classical, Minimalism | Label: Brilliant Classics | # 95112 | Time: 01:50:45

Michael Nyman (born 1944) is one of the most famous and successful film music composers of our time. His music, although inextricably connected with the visual action of a film, has the quality to stand on its own, to evoke and express the visual emotions in sounds only. Nyman’s most famous film score is of the film “The Piano” , becoming an instant hit. Its openness and its deceptively simple musical lines appealed to a mass audience. The music featured on this recording is either originally written for piano or arranged by the composer himself. Minimal Music champion Jeroen van Veen has been fascinated by Nyman’s music his whole life, and the recording of it was a logical step. He is the ideal interpreter of this seductive, mind opening music.

A much-admired contemporary, living composer whose popularity among a wide cross-section of music devotees and casual listeners transcends genre barriers. This new double-disc set of the complete piano music encompasses works composed over a 50 year span. Jeroen Van Veen is a preeminent and critically-favored Minimalist advocate and multi-dimensional artist with a noteworthy backlist of Brilliant Classic releases to his credit with more to come.

Jeno Jando - Franz Liszt: Hungarian Rhapsodies, Volume 1 (1999) [Complete Piano Music, Volume 12]

Jenő Jandó - Franz Liszt: Hungarian Rhapsodies, Volume 1 (1999)
EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue&Log) ~ 254 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 185 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans included
Genre: Classical | Label: Naxos | # 8.554480 | Time: 01:12:33

Not all of the Liszt Hungarian Rhapsodies are flat-out showpieces like the best-known ones, so this disc makes for a better listening program than you might expect. And Jénö Jandó, who must be the hardest-working pianist in the recording business, has a real flair for this music. He plays with the combination of free rhythms and virtuosity that the music demands, and he even indulges in a bit of improvisation when the spirit moves him. This was probably something Liszt did himself, and other great Liszt interpreters such as Rachmaninov and Cziffra have done the same thing. Jandó doesn't quite have Cziffra's overwhelming virtuosity, but he plays musically and the result is a highly entertaining disc.
