    Default The Art of Igor Kipnis

    Th Art of Igor Kipnis - Harpsichord Music of France, Italy and Spain is a three LP set Columbia reissue of individual LPs from the Epic label.

    Columbia M3X 31521
    ©1972 CBS Inc.

    Composers represented:

    France
    Boismortier
    L. Couperin
    F. Couperin
    Rameau

    Italy
    A. Scarlatti
    Pasquini
    Cimarosa
    Frescobaldi
    Rossi
    Galuppi

    Spain
    D. Scalatti
    Blasco de Nebra
    Soler

    Near as I can tell, none of the music from the LPs has been reissued on CD. Several of the iindividual pieces are on YouTube, findable via a Google search on 'Igor Kipnis XX' (replace the XX with the composer's name).

    I am in the process of digitizing the music, to make CD-Rs for my own use; still have the 'Spain' LP to go. I found the 'Italy' pieces delightfully lighthearted; they should work very well as a tonic for the 'downers'. Louis Couperin's "Tombeau de M. de Blancrocher" comes off very well on Kipnis' harpsichord.

    Enough idle chat. Go listen, eh?
    I spent a fortune on deodorant before I realized that people don't like me anyway.

    I think Columbia reissued the England, Germany and Austria Epic LPs in a 3 LP set too. It's a shame Sony hasn't remastered a complete set of Kipnis' recordings for Epic and Columbia in a CD box. I wonder if they've lost the tapes.

    Epic was never issued in the UK as a label. But they were issued by British Columbia (EMI).
    I have before me the Brahms piano Concerto No. 1 , Fleischer /Szell. But Epic was part of CBS at that time, was there a company actually called Epic ?

    Fools talk because they have to say something, wise men talk because they have something to say.
