Braunschweig Upright Piano Pro Edition (repost)

Braunschweig Upright Piano Pro Edition | 16.2 GB

The Braunschweig Upright Piano has a distinctive sound character that's far more intimate than a grand piano, making it desirable for certain situations where you don't want the polished and precise sound of a nine-foot grand in a concert hall. An original Schimmel Braunschweig upright piano was painstakingly recorded to create this beautiful instrument. As with all Imperfect Samples instruments, the emphasis has been placed on achieving a hyper-real and convincing sampled instrument, with performance sounds.

Despite a career spanning more than 50 years and a gold medal at the Tchaikovsky Piano Competition (among others), pianist John Lill may be an artist sadly missing from many CD collections. Heralded as an intellectual musician, his approach to the instrument is decidedly academic and straightforward. This is not to say that his music-making is not impassioned or thoughtful anymore than the same could be said of Starker or Gingold simply because they are master technicians at their instruments.

The idea of making an album featuring music by Krenek and Schumann had been on my mind for a long time. In 2012, I was able to discuss by concept with Gladys Krenek in Palm Springs. We reamined in regular contact over the next few years to develop the concept for this album. Gladys Krenek gave her full support for the project which has always been very close to my heart. (Tatjana Masurenko) On her latest album, Masurenko presents her comparison between Schumann's and Krenek's works. Both composers have had similar interest in music and literature and to both of them, music was a kind of therapy.

Shostakovich’s two Piano Concertos span a period of almost thirty years. The youthful First Piano Concerto is a masterful example of eclecticism, its inscrutable humour and seriousness allied to virtuoso writing enhanced by the rôle for solo trumpet. Written as a birthday present for his son Maxim, the Second Piano Concerto is light-spirited with a hauntingly beautiful slow movement. With the permission of the composer’s family, Boris Giltburg has arranged the exceptionally dark, deeply personal and powerful String Quartet No. 8, thereby establishing a major Shostakovich solo piano composition.

It was more than a pleasure when Rodrigo Ottaviano an old-new friend and manager of Daniel Melero confirmed to me that Daniel wanted to work with me the art of this record! Piano (1999) was a classic record that I listened to thousands of times, I keep listening … I hope volume 2 also becomes such. It was during a trip to Olot, in Catalonia that I thought to use the volcano on the album cover, and in Mexico came the idea of ​​the nonexistent piano, the piano that in fact Daniel does not play on the disc. Talking with Daniel is always a pleasure, it seems that you can tackle any topic with him, and that's what we talked about during the making of the album art, any subject … of volcanoes, arrangements, things that do not need to be fixed, books , Of my books, told me that during the recording of his last albums my books had been there very present, as anticipating this collaboration. The day that Piano 2 appeared in Buenos Aires, the ashes cloud of the Chilean volcano Calbuco that had erupted a few days before, arrived at Buenos Aires. The coincidences do exist, of course.

This attractively priced double set is one of Stephen Hough's most important recordings. 'Britain's greatest living pianist' (The Mail on Sunday) is joined by Mozarteumorchester Salzburg and international conductor Mark Wigglesworth in their Hyperion debut for Brahms's Piano Concertos. These works are among the greatest in the genre, and shore up Brahms's reputation as both a symphonist and a piano composer. Separated by twenty-two years and widely differing in their reception (the first was scorned and the second a huge success), they are monumental in scale, impassioned and truly romantic, forward-looking in form and requiring both great virtuosity and intimacy from the pianist.
