    Schumann, Piano Concerto - John Ogdon, New Philharmonia Orchestra, Paavo Berglund.

    Scriabin, Piano Concerto - Anatol Ugorski, Chicago SO, Pierre Boulez.

    Continuing with Chausson.

    earlier:
    Ernest Chausson (1855 – 1899)
    - Poème op. 25 (version fo violin and piano; 1892-96)
    - Concert op. 21 (for piano, violin and string quartet (1889-91)
    Vladimir Spivakov, violin; Hélène Mercier, piano; Arkadi Fouter, violin; Alexeï Lundine, violin; Igor Souliga, viola; Mikhaïl Milman, cello (capriccio)



    This performance by Spivakov and Mercier is terrific. I prefer their version for violin and piano to the version for violin and orchestra (Grumiaux, see post from yesterday). But maybe I need to compare the orchestra version as recorded with Isabelle Faust.
    To close with Chausson I select now his piano quartet (Quatuor Schumann) and his piano trio (Trio Wanderer). I had almost forgotten that I do have this piano trio, as the CD was placed with CDs by Ravel...

    - Piano Quartet op. 30 (1897)
    Quatuor Schumann (aeon)


    - Piano Trio (1881)
    Trio Wanderer (harmonia mundi)

    Bach- Benjamin Appl (baritone)

    Concerto Köln


    Gramophone Magazine November 2018




    Bist du bei mir, BWV508
    Cantata BWV99 'Was Gott tut, das ist wohlgetan': Er ist mein Licht, mein Leben
    Cantata BWV159 'Sehet, wir gehn hinauf gen Jerusalem': Aria: Es ist vollbracht
    Cantata BWV194 'Höchsterwünschtes Freudenfest': Was des Höchsten Glanz erfüllt
    Cantata BWV214 'Tönet, ihr Pauken': Kron und Preis gekrönter Damen
    Jesu, bleibet meine Freude (from Cantata BWV147 'Herz und Mund und Tat und Leben')



    What’s most surprising is the humour. Appl is, by instinct, a musical storyteller and he brings a raconteur’s enjoyment to the musical battle between Apollo and Pan…Concerto Köln provide a skilled supporting cast for Appl’s musical drama…But vocally there are issues…Appl’s natural, unaffected delivery and bright, tenorial tone may yet make for a great artist but he’s still far from the finished product.

    Shostakovich: String Quartet No. 14 in F-Sharp Major, Op. 142 (1973). The Manhattan String Quartet. I like the recording on this set; rather dry, without too much hall sound.



    This particular quartet doesn't stand out for me. It's not "dark" at all, very majorish and light. The Quartet No. 15, following, is more like what I expect from Shosty.
