Born in Australia Bruce Hungerford (1922-1977) studied with the legendary Ignaz Friedman in Sydney. His move to the USA brought him in contact with Myra Hess, who gave him valuable coaching, and later with Carl Friedberg. His prodigious qualities caught the attention of the Solomon brothers of the American Vanguard Classics label who contracted him for a complete Beethoven cycle recording. Sadly Hungerford died in a car accident halfway the project. Piano Classics is happy to issue his Beethoven Legacy for the first time in one CD box set. Hungerford’s Beethoven is powerful, full of dramatic contrasts and effects, but also of great tenderness and wit, the full spectrum of Beethoven’s genius and humanity. Apart from his superb pianism and musicianship, Hungerford is also remembered as a professional palaeontologist and Egyptologist.
Johann Hölzl aka Falco ist für mich einer der herausragenden deutschsprachigen Musiker der jüngeren Vergangenheit. Natürlich war nicht immer alles Gold was unter dem Namen des Österreichers veröffentlicht worden ist. Sony veröffentlicht nun eine 5-CD Box mit den Alben Einzelhaft, Junge Römer, Falco 3, Falco Symphonic und Donauinsel Live. In der Box findet man also die ersten drei Falco Album und zwei Alben welche posthum veröffentlicht worden sind.
This is the second of Brilliant's box sets devoted to Russian recordings from Evgeny Kissin. Labeled as early, these live concert performances from 1984 to 1990 carry us from the day after Kissin turned 13 (Mozart Cto. #12 K. 414) to age 18 (Mozart Cto. #20, K. 466), with most readings clustering in the range of 1985-89. Russians were well aware of the marvel in their midst; the pianist's American breakthrough occurred in 1990 when he debuted at Carnegie Hall's centennial season. No one since Richter, debuting almost thirty years before, had made such a heady entry, and Richter was past fifty when he came here (briefly, since he loathed American capitalism and the pace of life in our big cities).
A Taste of Strawbs is a box-set album by Strawbs. Instead of being a "best of" album, the compilers (Dave Cousins and Dick Greener) have attempted to present alternative versions of some well known songs plus some previously unreleased material.
Very relaxing and nice. Could do with a little more ocean sounds. I like the ones that also include sounds of gulls. I would have rated it higher except the musical theme does not change throughout and I find the sameness makes it a little monotonous, despite the beauty of the composition.
