Fri & Sat 8PM  
Hong Kong Cultural Centre Concert Hall  
 
Programme  
FRANCK  
The Accursed Hunter  
SAINT-SAËNS  
Piano Concerto No.2  
BEETHOVEN  
Symphony No.3 Eroica  
 
Conductor:  
Antoni Wit  
Pianist:  
Ingrid Fliter  
 
The most heroic of composers, Beethoven, penned his Third Symphony with Napoleon in mind. It became a celebration of the ‘Heroic’ nature of all humanity. ‘Eroica’ inspires and thrills, and Polish conductor Antoni Wit is one of its greatest interpreters. Saint-Saëns’ Second Piano Concerto begins in homage to his hero Bach, but the mood nimbly changes to Parisian jollity for Argentinean pianist Ingrid Fliter. The concert begins with an anti-hero: the noble count who dares to go hunting on Sunday when he should be in church. Heaven’s punishment – he himself will be hunted by terrifying demons for all eternity!

A few notes on Yundi's Tchaikovsky concert by HKPO on 8/9/2012.  
 
The first half of the concert was all Shostakovich which include symphony no.9, the playing was of very high standard with a lot of amazing moment, under the baton of Sinaisky, the orchestra playing was lively, witty and humorous. The sting was wonderful and have golden tone even in climax. There are some new face in Brass section, but the performance was smooth.  
 
Yundi performed Tchaikovsky piano concerto in second half, he come out as a shy. humble, young man. Initially I do hope for too much but Yundi demonstrated that he can play with dignity and fire, although he is never a Horowitz II, his playing was appropriate, polite and fluent. Not the last word of this concerto but satisfying performance in every way.

Previously, I can only choose between Rostropovich/Serkin and Du Pre/Barenboim, Rostropovich/Serkin is more introvert, calm, while Du Pre/Barenboim more lively, passionate.  
 
But recently I have three more choice although one is in MONO: Fournier/Backhaus,the ever sentimental Shafran, and Majestic Paitigorsky/Rubinstein.  
 
Have not heard of Navarra's version though.

As much I like DuPre, I like the Brahms Cello Sonata by Andre Navarra/Alfred Holecek better. I feel Navarra has the last word in expression and inner fire.

Du pre's Haydn C Cello Concerto is my R2D4 recording. Love it better than her Elgar Cello Concerto. Have several other versions such as Yo Yo Ma, Rostropovich and Miklos Sadlos, none is as toching as hers, esp. the Adagio movement. Use this movement as test of musicality of my audio system.

This CD box set ought to be a must for everyone, Cello Concertos from Haydn, Boccherini, Schumann, Monn, Saint-Saens, Dvorak and not forgetting of course Elgar, under the fingers and bow of Jacqueline Du Pre. Barring Monn who I am not familiar with, the rest are just music all the way to enjoy.  
 
I have some of them in LP but there is no mention on the recording engineers. It's a great bonus to know that quite a few were in fact recorded by Christopher Parker. They include:  
 
Haydn No 1 in C major, 1967, Abbey Rd Studio  
Boccherini, 1967, Abbey Rd  
Schumann in A minor, 1968, Abbey Rd  
Saint-Saens No 1 in A minor, 1968, Abbey Rd  
Elgar in E minor, 1965, Kingsway Hall

回覆 (590): Prokofiev Piano concerto no.2 and Ravel piano concerto
In preparation for the concert this Friday, I take out Yundi's recording of Prokofiev piano concerto and Ravel Piano concerto. The recording is top top notch in terms of sonics, Yundi can handle prokofiev's difficult concerto with ease, lacking last ounce of fire though, while Ravel received a dreamy account of his piano concerto which could compare with the best.  
 
Satisfying account considered the maturity of this artist.

回覆 (587): Strauss metamorphosen Klemperer
Photobucket  
 
Delighted to gett this hard to find copy EMI LP awhile ago though having to pay quite a considerable sum. The Metamorphosen is the darkest and most gloomy piece by Strauss, composed near the end of his career. It is his mourning for the destruction of Dresden and Munich Opera house during the second world war. This Klemperer account provides the fatal sense of loss and glows with tragedy, making one feels for the intense grievience by Strauss. Like this more than the famous version by Karajan/BPO and the other one by kempe/Dresden SO.

回覆 (586): The Pictures
 
The Reiner's Pictures at Exhibition is my all time favourite. No other comes close, not to mention the original piano version. The performance is dramatic, eerie and grand.  
The sound of this 1957 recording is demonstrative , leaving the modern digital versions to dust. One seldom find a recording with delicate , sweet, silvery string tones and at the same time having fast transients and explosive dynamics.

When talking about Prokofieff's piano music how can we not refer to S. Richter, a close associate of the composer. There is nothing more to say, other than the word superlative, about his playing. Prokofieff dedicated the piano sonata NO. 9 to Richter after hearing him played the eighth. To add icing on the cake the recording sound of the piano is the best from DG, truth in timber and accurate in dynamics.

You can hear this concerto live on Nov.8 played by Yuja Wang and SFO under M. Tilson Thomas. Let's see how this piano wizard tackle this difficult piece.  
 
Just listened to this concerto over the weekend, the version by Michel Beroff and K. Masur/Leipzig Gewandhaus. Beroff gives an emotional performance of this concerto with his dazzling technique and spontaneous musicality, a performance that can be recommended if you find Askenazy too straightforeward.
