    Default Unknown (but wonderful) soloists discovered!

    Listening to a superbudget download that includes Beethoven’s first four piano concertos played by Jasminka Stancuhl piano, with Alexander Rahbari conducting the Slovak Radio New Philharmonic Orchestra. Actually I’m listening to the No. 1 concerto.

    A big WOW! for Ms. Stancuhl, who seems otherwise unknown on the Internet. It’s hard to imagine anybody playing this, the last of the “classical” piano concerti*, with more verve and style. Her articulation is beyond impressive, and the runs are like the proverbial strings of pearls. Her playing is a joy to hear.

    How about you? Any happy soloist surprises to share?

    *Since #2 was written before #1.

    Here’s a little something on her:

    I did find some of her performances on YouTube. She sounds outstanding and seems to be known for her Beethoven. I plan on getting that download myself. Thanks for pointing her out.

    She's far from unknown, lots of music on record but nothing solo. I first got to know her through some Mozart concertos which drew my attention because they're on a label which specialises in modern music, Col Legno. I hadn't registered that she was special in fact, but then I haven't heard the Beethoven -- just some Schubert, Brahms and Mozart.
