Yesterday, listened to three recordings of "Recuerdos de la Alhambra" in George's place.  
1. Narciso Yepes  
2. Kaori Muraji (村治佳織)  
3. John Williams  
 
I like Yepes' rendition among the three. It seems to me his 輪指技巧 is the best if evaluated against the following criteria from wikipedia.  
"该段在演奏时要注意:轮指要有颗粒性和清晰度,应控制好右手的力度,旋律弹奏要有起伏的变化。相应地,乐句的处理要有渐强、渐弱的变化和对比。"

There is a funny story about Rachmaninov and Fritz Kriesler during their recital at the Carnegie Hall.  
Kriesler, the flamboyant womanizer,was famous for doing little preparation before the concert. When he forgot the score during a difficult passage he turned and whispered to Rachmaninov " Where are we? " Rachmaninov, ever the poker face, replied coldly " Carnegie Hall ! "

Piano Concerto No. 2.* Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini. Dohnányi: Variations on a Nursery Theme.  
 
JULIUS KATCHEN piano  
London Symphony Orchestra  
conducted by Sir Georg Solti*  
London Philharmonic Orchestra  
conducted by Sir Adrian Boult  
 
DECCA/LONDON Classic Sound 448604-2  
[78:31] mid-price. Piano Concerto No. 2 (32:54) recorded 1958. (This release: July 1997.)  
 
Julius Katchen and Sir Georg Solti take a highly athletic, non-romantic approach to the first movement, clocking in at a blistering 9:48. (Most performances run between ten-and-a-half and 12 minutes.) Fast and exciting or brusque and brutal, take your pick, but these guys do not stick around long enough to wear out their welcome. Personally, I think the speed robs the music of grandeur and impact, but will admit that Katchen and Solti do get the adrenaline going, and can see how many people would consider this performance a favorite.

This can be a reference.  
 
Rachmaninov was of course the brilliant virtuoso we all know, but as a genious composer he has as well his place in the standard classical repertoire. Here we hear him play the moderato from his second piano concerto. This unique recording with the Philadelphia Symphony Orchestra directed by Leopold Stokowski was made for RCA in 1929. At request, I'm now uploading the first movement.

抑鬱初癒還是愛火正燒 Rachmaninov Piano Concerto no.2網誌分類:Rachmaninov | 網誌日期:2009-01-16 22:04  
從圖書館借了一套Stephen Hough 與Andrew Litton 演出的Rachmaninov Piano Concertos全集,這是2004 年出版的現場錄音,在Gramophone 與Penguin Guide 得到很好的評價,聽了一遍,發覺有很多獨特觀點,故與手頭版本比較一番,看看不同藝術家的特色。先從最有名的第二鋼琴協奏曲開始。  
 
Rachmaninov 在幼年時即生在一個不幸的家庭,父親是醉酒鬼,更在他童年時與母親離異,他的一位大姊與小妹分別於他青年時因病離世,故他的音樂常有一種沉重內向的感覺。  
 
在他的第一交響樂首演時,作為指揮的Glazunov據說在表演前喝得酩酊大醉,故Rachmaninov第一交響樂得到樂評家不留情面的劣評,對Rachmaninov 這弱小心靈的打擎可謂不小。他還為此患上抑鬱症。幸好得當時擅於Hypnotic的精神科醫生Dr.Nikolay Dahl醫治並成功復元,之後才寫下這動人心泌的名曲。  
 
但在近年Rachmaninov 的孫子卻從祖母口中得知這不過是Rachmaninov的版本,實情是Rachmaninov 愛上了Dr. Nikolay Dahl 的女兒,而Piano Concerto No.2 是憑歌寄意,誰是誰非實在難以考究,但無可置疑此曲實在蕩氣迴腸,名演不少,找來四個版本比較一下。

Bruno Walter is as he was, a gentlemen with integrity and kindness. My first mahler CD was Bruno Walter conducting Columbia Symphony Orchestra playing Mahler No.1, still the best stereo account in my humble opinion, surely how can we miss the cripser account of Rafael Kubelik!  
 
Bruno Walter surely is a protege and apprentice of Gustav Mahler, his mahler cycle is indispensable.

'對兩位細心的男士來說,給淑女送禮是苦惱也是樂趣罷 '  
In the beginning it is a ritual,ajoy, a rhapsody. Now,after so many years, it is a duty, a commitment.  
 
george,  
 
Read your review of Mahler 2 by Klemperer. What a great and in-depth review!  
At the premiere of Mahler 2 conducted by the composer,3 young men were present amongst the audience--Bruno Walter, Otto Klemperer,and Leopold Stokowsky. Each had his own idea of how this symphony should be played. Luckily all of them had left a stereo recording, by Columbia, EMI, and RCA. (Hearing Mahler symphony in historic mono recording is a joke). It would be interesting to compare their intepretation. Personally I like Walter best, followed by Klemperer.  
 
Regarding Wilhem Pitz, his conducting of Wagner is also great. I have one LP, a DG TULIP by him conducting the Wagner overture, mesmerising playing and gorgeous sound.

It seems to me that both cp and you should not be absent in the dress rehearsal if Chen Sa had a visiting concert here again. At the time of listening her playing in dress rehearsal, I kept thinking about the style of Clara Haskil and the atmosphere reminiscent to Chanel No.5 (a top-notch perfume largely based upon the jasmine note), her superb fingerwork and gorgeous touching really fascinates me from start to finish , not to mention the orchestral players and conductor edo de waart. My friend told me that EDW favors the dress rehearsal with Chen rather than with Yundi Li.  
 
What a pity that the recording contract of Yundi Li has been terminated last Nov by DGG due to poor sales!  
 
Should your time be available, I am glad to attend the rehearsal with both CP and you. ^.^

george,  
 
After reading your blog, just hate myself for not being there, though I 've heard de Waart and HPO played Mahler 5 before. You compared Chen Sa to Clara Haskil,a highest compliment, and I totally agreed with you. I based my opinion on listening to her playing Mozart piano concerto 23 a few years back and I'm glad that our country finally has a pianist who can play Mozart.

Hello KH,  
 
I don't have any LP by Shafran and fortunately I listen to both LP and CD. But I must say LP sounds better than CD under my lo-fi system. Just played Kremer's Bach Partita No.2 & Sonata No.2 under Philips, a LP that sounds very good.  
 
Wang is discovered by Issac Stern while making the documentary video "From Mao to Mozart" and I finally identify the piece Wang played in the video is "Sonata for Cello and Piano in G minor" by Henry Eccles. Now playing, a double bass version, in a minor instead of g minor.
