    Review

    “Many collectors will have heard these performances one way or another, but Music & Arts isn't kidding when it tells us that these performances were remastered in 1998 "from the best available sources." The live sound is great, considering its age. (Credit goes to Maggi Payne.) Furthermore, six and a fraction Mahler symphonies on six well-filled CDs, and for the price of four, is a bargain. But all this good stuff would be as useless as a preacher in a house of ill-repute if it weren't for the blazing nature of the musicianship. Our Editor usually passes Mitropoulos discs my way because he knows I sympathize, so perhaps my opinions are biased. Nevertheless, I think I am speaking reasonably when I say that all good Mahlerians will want these discs. No, they will need them. That Mitropoulitans such as myself will have to have them is predictable, and only right. In short, this is a fabulous collection: an orgy of great music interpreted greatly.

    —Raymond Tuttle, Fanfare Sept/Oct 1998

    Since their Carnegie Recital Hall debut in 1962, the esteemed Zaslav Duo (Bernard Zaslav, viola and Naomi Zaslav, piano) attained a high level of recognition for both concerts and recordings of the viola/piano repertory.

     

    In 2016, during what he knew might be the final days of his life, Bernard Zaslav (known to those close to him as Bernie) expressed that it had been his privilege to record such a vast and varied catalogue of classical and modern viola music over the course of his ninety-year life. But even then, he had one more treasury of recorded material that had never been released which he would be “tickled” to share with the public. This recording, a recital which took place on February 8, 1986 at Dinkelspeil Auditorium on the campus of Stanford University, is a labor of love, and serves as his final offering.

  29. GUIDO CANTELLI. THE COMPLETE 15 MARCH 1953 NEW YORK CONCERT

    GUIDO CANTELLI. THE COMPLETE 15 MARCH 1953 NEW YORK CONCERT

    $14.95


    The second of Guido Cantelli's New York Philharmonic-Symphony Sunday broadcasts of the 1952-53 season was originally to have begun with the Brahms Tragic Overture that had been played by the Philharmonic a week earlier at their concerts of March 5, 6 and 7. But stringencies of timing and a profusion of commercials necessitated the last minute substitution of a shorter composition, Verdi's Overture to La Forza del Destino. It is interesting to hear the Verdi work filtered through the Philharmonic-Symphony's darker, more rough-hewn tone and to discover that, with a different orchestra, the conductor's splendid interpretation – very Toscaninian when played by the NBC Symphony (in Music& Arts set 1120), became more rhetorical and majestic.



    The Arrau/Cantelli collaboration in the Liszt A major Concerto is a complete success. Arrau was always a distinguished Lisztian, and his virtuosity was in prime condition at this particular juncture (as a matter of fact, the Chilean pianist had made his legendary Columbia recording of the Liszt First with Ormandy and his Philadelphians the year before in a single, unedited "take") it was reissued on CD in the SONY/Heritage series. Cantelli was attentive to the music's opportunities for touching lyricism, and that Arrau, subconsciously or not, was caught up in the persuasive orchestral framework (a framework graced by the sensually expressive solos of the fine principal cellist Laszlo Varga and Cantelli's ardent sincerity). What we have here is a Liszt A major worthy of comparison with the legendary Richter/Kondrashin recording of ten years later.



    The Debussy and Ravel works of this concert's second half vividly evoke Maestro Cantelli's brilliance and genius in two particularly incandescent moments of glory. There are some who tend to disparage Debussy's incidental music for Gabriele d'Annunzio's 1911 play as "pretty wan, feeble stuff" but for some reason or other, Cantelli was mesmerized by its potential opportunities for evocative magic and kept returning to it. This version with the Philharmonic-Symphony may well be the most potent of his several recordings_thanks to the impactful immediacy of the splendidly miked Carnegie Hall sound and the dark color and physicality of the orchestra's style.



    And this account of Ravel's Daphnis et Chloe Suite No. 2 seriously rivals the magnificent Philharmonia studio recording for the expansive breadth of its Daybreak (with the triangles ringing through its final chord!), the flexibility of its pantomime (John Wummer's flute solo is ravishing), and for the marvelous rhythmic swirl and excitement of the Danse General (which is, if anything, even more thrusting and dynamic with the added voltage of a thrilled audience.)

    LISZT, ART AND LITERATURE. Carlo Grante, piano.

    Regular Price: $14.95

    Special Price: $8.95

    In the Romantic period, the connections between love and death were an obsession of artists. Composers were naturally drawn to explore the great themes that entered literature in the works of Dante, Petrarch and Goethe: good and evil; love and death. Liszt was no exception. His powerful, evocative works presented here range from moments of repose and contemplation to nearly unbearable contrasts of dynamics, pitch registers, and tempi, uniquely dramatized by bold juxtapositions. Carlo Grante, dubbed “a fearless, flawless knight of the piano” by Die Presse, Vienna, delivers outstanding performances of grace, depth and volcanic dynamism.

    “Death wish and descents to hell: Carlo Grante has created a big romantic horror movie à la Liszt. Inspiring, pithy, edgy, exciting and reveling in the sound to the fullest.”

    —Eckhard Weber, Concerti, January 2015

    “A delight for the ear and mind, this Liszt recital by Grante, and so among the first of the Best of the Year candidates for any piano lover’s collection.”

    —Gary Lemco, Audiophile Audition, January 13, 2015

     “The Bösendorfer rolls and groans, howls and flashes, in order finally to become a true hell machine under Grant's hands in Totentanz.

     …Grante is sure to set a brilliant light with this successful recording.”

    —Michael Straeter, Deutschen Liszt-Gesellschaft, May 2017

    BRUNO WALTER’S MAHLER: THE EARLY NEW YORK RECORDINGS

    $29.90

    The Philharmonic-Symphony of 1942 was going through a bit of a rough patch at the height of WWII, with numerous players called up for military service. Still the players respond well and vividly to Walter’s wishes, in this account of the “Resurrection” that is noticeably more rhetorical and dramatic than his several later recordings. His response to directions such as the Molto pesante and ritardando leading to the first movement recapitulation (after Figure 20) is a spectacular bit of interpretive brinksmanship. Similarly, the movement’s coda is conducted with a searching breadth and drama not readily apparent from the Walter we know from the 1950s. The Andante moderato movement that follows is full of charm, contrasted with a truly stormy outburst climaxing the section marked Energisch bewegt. The listener can hear that the Philharmonic of 1942 executes portamento string playing more naturally than American orchestras would in the postwar era. There is even a smattering of applause from the audience in response to this movement.  And the irony of the third movement brought more acute response from Walter on this occasion than usual. The vividness of the third movement climax after Figure 50 throws the playing of the Philharmonic violins in the molto espressivo lines which follow into dramatic relief. Mona Paulee’s finely tuned account of “O Rosebud red” which follows is a moment of calm before the stormy finale. In this apocalyptic movement Walter’s response is again intensified, in details such as the caesura before Figure 2, in the balance and dynamic control of the offstage brass, and finally, in the restrained buildup to the majestic choral finale (with the Carnegie Hall organ adding richly sonorous support).

    It is tempting to speculate that the conductor’s recent uprooting from both his German homeland and his adopted Vienna refuge, combined with the traumatic events of Pearl Harbor just a month before this concert, may have manifested themselves in a certain ferocity evident in this account of the “Resurrection.” Walter’s missionary zeal for Mahler’s multidimensional music provided a ready outlet for such a vivid response to world events.

     

    The Philharmonic had played the Mahler First under Dimitri Mitropoulos in January 1941, so Walter was not teaching them the work from scratch as he had done with the NBC Symphony in 1939 (also available on a Music & Arts CD). This performance also exhibits similar rhetorical drama to that apparent in the “Resurrection” Symphony from earlier in the year. In expressiveness it even exceeds the NBC account, which is full of striking impetus but not so overtly rhetorical.

     

    In short, two previously unreleased public performance recordings that reveal a Walter given to passionate excesses not found in his later versions.

    FERRUCCIO BUSONI: ELEGIES & AN DIE JUGEND. CARLO GRANTE, PIANO

    $14.95

    Ferruccio Busoni's Elegies (1908) and An die Jugend (1909) are experimental pieces that explore new pathways in the composer's harmonic language and artistic evolution. Elegies is an aesthetic manifesto, a wish for a turning point in the composer s creative evolution, but also, more ambitiously, in all future music. Ferruccio Busoni believed that music should be, as he commented to the critic and composer Hans Pfitzner, well-meant and full of peace, but this did not preclude the provocative gesture of the Elegies exceptional harmonic variety, brought about by new chordal progressions and juxtapositions and giving an impression of a potentially inexhaustible tonality. An die Jugend is a collection of four pieces written in 1909 and published as four separate books in the same year. These pieces share some stylistic features with Busoni's first Elegy, while showing even further experimentation on the composer's part.

    Carlo Grante performs these works on a Bösendorfer Imperial Grand Piano.


    "Ever challenging and knotty, the often academic figures in Busoni retain their experimental vigor in Grante’s powerful realization."

    Gary Lemco, Audiophile Audition, April 21, 2018

    CAMILLA WICKS IN CONCERT- Five Decades of Treasured Performances. Previously Unreleased Recordings!

    Regular Price: $59.80

    Special Price: $54.80

    Upheld by many as a queen amongst her peers, violinist Camilla Wicks led a stellar career in the dozen years following World War II. At the peak of her fame she retired from the concert stage to devote herself to her family. Upon resuming her career she remained an outstanding if intermittent performer for several more decades. 

     Wicks made few commercial recordings besides a famed 1952 performance of the Sibelius Concerto. Now this precious set, spanning five decades and a vast range of repertoire, offers the most comprehensive collection of her concert performances ever likely to be assembled. It offers an in-depth insight into Wicks’ evolution from captivating, devil-may-care young virtuoso to profound interpreter. Music & Arts is pleased to make these great performances available for those who have long wished for Wicks’ discography to be expanded, and to enable a wider audience to be stirred by this extraordinary violinist and artist.

    PAUL BADURA-SKODA PLAYS CHOPIN

    $14.95

    Pianist, scholar and pedagogue Paul Badura-Skoda may best be known to the music loving public at large as an exponent of the Viennese classics. In fact, Badura-Skoda’s lengthy career covers far more musical ground than he is usually given credit for, from his awesome teenage prowess as an accordion virtuoso to the flamenco-inspired flair he brought to Frank Martin’s Fantasie, a work written especially for Badura-Skoda. In January 2005, we heard Badura-Skoda in an intimate, semi-private recital in New York, where the 77-year-old pianist covered a wide repertoire range with consummate authority and still-impressive technical command, notably in a shimmering, intense performance of Ravel’s Ondine from Gaspard de la nuit. A selection of Chopin short pieces proved no less idiomatic, and served to remind us this composer also has preoccupied Badura-Skoda for a long time. Chopin also figures in the pianist’s uncommonly large and wide-ranging discography of more than 200 releases, including the present 1971-5 studio recordings, all but one piece being released now for the first time.

  139. O ETERNE DEUS - MUSIC OF HILDEGARD VON BINGEN.  VAJRA VOICES

    O ETERNE DEUS - MUSIC OF HILDEGARD VON BINGEN. VAJRA VOICES

    $14.95

    In their stunning debut recording, the women's vocal ensemble, Vajra Voices, directed by contralto Karen R. Clark, performs works by the German Benedictine abbess and mystic, Hildegard von Bingen (1098 – 1179). Joined by multi-instrumentalist, Shira Kammen, Vajra Voices presents performances of passion, radiance, strength and depth.

       Reviews

    "One cannot help but be deeply moved by the exquisite rendition of Hildegard's music by Vajra Voices.  Their singing brings Hildegard into the room with all her passion and power and the Spirit arrives too along with angels eager to wake us up. “ 

    –– Matthew Fox, author of HILDEGARD OF BINGEN: A Saint for Our Times: Unleashing Her Power in the 21st Century, ILLUMINATIONS OF HILDEGARD OF BINGEN, and Hildegard of Bingen's Book of Divine Works: With Letters and Songs.

    “The chant melodies, rendered here with heartfelt elegance by the women’s chorus Vajra Voices under the direction of Karen R. Clark, are striking in both their shapeliness and the spiritual fervor that runs through them.”

    — Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle, April 20, 2016

    “The Vajra Voices, 7 in all, are a Berkeley-based all-female group who have Hildegard’s music at the centre of their repertory. Their strengths, apart from beautiful voices, include precise articulation and the confidence to be simple in expression. Voices blend beautifully, and Karen R Clark has a contralto well-suited to the spiritual depths of the music – a truly splendid voice.

     Listen either to the opening or the final pages, and one is touched by a depth and beauty.

    All in all, this recording belongs with the very best Hildegard collections, one for late night reflectiveness.”

    — Michael Wilkinson, MusicWeb International, July 26, 2016

    "...Vajra Voices, under the direction of Karen R. Clark, offers a very fine survey of nearly every genre of chant represented in Hildegard’s repertory—antiphons, responsories, hymns, and sequences. Clark herself has a beautiful voice that shows flexibility and nuance through the very broad range that Hildegard covers in her chants. Her performance of the antiphon ‘O Quam Magnum Miraculum Est’ to Shira Kammen’s vielle accompaniment is gorgeous."

    —Peter Loewen, American Record Guide, September/October 2016

    "The seven women of Vajra Voices – richly voiced, contrasted individuals who shine as soloists or conspire without egotism in vivid, full-blooded ensemble – sing out with tremendous intensity. Led by the wide emotional spectrum of Karen R. Clark’s contralto, the shimmering resonance of their elegantly paced performances with entirely credible phrasing and selection of note lengths, coloured at times by instrumental accompaniment, vocal drones, and oganum (sparing and tasteful), is delightful. Lovely, thoughtful, and inspiring instrumentals adorn this, the most convincing Hildegard disc I’ve yet heard from the USA."

    Rebecca Tavener, Choir & Organ, September/October 2016

     "A special vocal group is required to do justice to Hildegard’s music, and we have it here in Vajra Voices, an ensemble of seven women dedicated to mediaeval and modern music “in a singing style inspired by Hildegard von Bingen that is clear, sweet and strong”. The group’s name comes from the Sanskrit word for strength of spirit “as symbolized by the thunderbolt of clarity and the indestructible nature of the diamond’. Contralto Karen Clark is the director, and the only instrumental accompaniment is by Shira Kammen on several kinds of mediaeval harp, and a stringed instrument called the vielle, played with a bow.

     The group lives and performs in San Francisco, with this recording done in St. Ignatius Catholic Church there in August 2015. It is their first and it was crowd-funded (KickStarter) on the independent classical and jazz label Music and Arts Programs of America. The recording quality, and booklet and packaging are top quality. I end with a hearty recommendation for this album, and a quotation from Hildegard, one of the earliest feminists:

     “Woman may be made from man, but no man can be made without a woman.”"

    — Paul Kennedy, Audiophile Audition, November 4, 2016

    $89.70

    SZYMON GOLDBERG: THE CENTENARY COLLECTION - VOL. II: COMMERCIAL RECORDINGS, 1932-1951.

    Recordings were made of Szymon Goldberg (1909-1993) over virtually a 60-year period. It must have been one of the longest studio careers of any violinist – it was certainly one of the most consistent in quality. The present set gathers up all the 78rpm material, which itself covers some two decades and presents the violinist in repertoire to which he did not return in later years, such as string quartets, string trios and string duos. An earlier volume (Music & Arts CD-1223, 8 CDs) presented Goldberg's best live recordings. Despite an often difficult life, Goldberg had an extraordinary ability to project a balanced view of the music he played. He was the archetypal Classical violinist and in his everyday life, behaved exactly as he played – a rare gift. In person, he was diminutive and soft-spoken. On stage, he never hectored the audience through his violin or pulled the music about to create an effect. Taking the view that the composer knew best, he did not impose an egotistical interpretation. Rather, he sought out the quiet centre of the piece he was playing and let his performance grow out of that. It followed that he was a great Mozart violinist, possibly the finest of the last century. He was, perhaps, at his best in chamber music, well represented here; but he was also an assured soloist and made a few excellent concerto recordings in the 78rpm era. Volume I of this Goldberg project (CD-1223) was released in 2010 and was named a Musicweb International Record of the Year and earned a gold medal from Diapason Magazine.

    $89.70

    Released with the kind permission of the Szymon Goldberg Estate. 

    Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik           (German Record Critics’ Award)    

    Best of 2009! 

    Named a Musicweb International Record of the Year (2010) and earned a gold medal from Diapason Magazine 

    Great violinists come in all shapes and sizes and in all shades of intensity, so we should not expect Szymon Goldberg (1907-1993) to be like anyone else, or measure his achievement against those of other players. Despite an often difficult life, he had an extraordinary ability to project a balanced view of the music he played. He was the archetypal Classical violinist and in his everyday life, behaved exactly as he played - a rare gift. In person, he was diminutive and soft-spoken. On stage, he never hectored the audience through his violin or pulled the music about to create an effect. Taking the view that the composer knew best, he did not impose an egotistical interpretation. Rather, he sought out the quiet centre of the piece he was playing and let his performance grow out of that. It followed that he was a great Mozart violinist, possibly the finest of the last century. He was, perhaps, at his best in chamber music; but he was also an assured soloist and, although he was given few chances to record concertos in the studio, we can supplement the official performances with a number of live broadcasts including solo sonatas of Bach, concertos of Mendelssohn and Berg, and chamber works by Beethoven, Bartok, Stravinsky and Webern.

    HOMMAGE À DEBUSSY. Carlo Grante, piano.

    $14.95

    An audiophile recording of some of Debussy’s favorite piano pieces + rare and unusual works by admirers of his musical idiom. Carlo Grante is one of today's most active and popular recording pianists and his concert repertoire, which has also contributed to the appreciation of lesser-known works, is one of the largest among contemporary pianists. His discography currently numbers more than fifty CDs, ranging from Domenico Scarlatti (the complete recording of the sonatas is underway inVienna—a project of about 40 CDs under the patronage of Bösendorfer and Paul and Eva Badura-Skoda), to Platti, Clementi, Liszt and Schumann, and to twentieth century composers such as Godowsky, Busoni and Sorabji. His recent record productions include works by Vlad (Opus Triplex) and Finnissy (Bachsche Nachdichtungen) dedicated to him and inspired by Bach and Busoni; the two concertos for piano and orchestra by Franz Schmidt with the Radio Orchestra of Leipzig (MDR Leipzig) conducted by Fabio Luisi; three concertos for piano and orchestra by Mozart with the Orchestra dell'Accademia di Santa Cecilia in Rome conducted by B. Sieberer, the Busoni Concerto, recorded live in Vienna with the Vienna Symphony under Fabio Luisi (not yet released); the three sonatas by Schumann (recorded in the Sala Santa Cecilia in Rome's Parco della Musica), as well as works by Godowsky, Rachmaninoff, Flynn, Bloch and Liszt.

    This Beethoven 9th was originally released by us on CD-292 in 1986 and was newly remastered in 2006; the 8th, taken from the same concert, has not previously appeared. Critic Henry Fogel wrote of the original issue of the 9th in Fanfare: “The Concertgebouw plays as if possessed, the chorus sings in the same manner, and one listens to this performance feeling the impact of great music being performed with the deepest of emotional and intellectual conviction”.

    J.S. BACH: THE SIX ENGLISH SUITES. Colin Tilney, harpsichord. (DDD) UPC #0-17685-07772-2

     

    “Colin Tilney certainly takes his assignment au grand sérieux, and earns our respect for his thoughtful approach, his firm rhythmic control – even in the huge initial fugue of Suite No. 6 – while avoiding inflexibility (with subtle phrasing that clarifies structure), his crisp ornaments, his stylishly discreet embellishment of repeats (virtually all of which he makes), and his general air of solid command. He uses a very fine brass-strung Italian harpsichord of the early 18th century (which is admirably recorded): it possesses only two eight-foot registers that are little contrasted aurally, but such is the intense commitment of Tilney’s playing that no sense of monochrome monotony arises.”

    –Lionel Salter  in Gramophone


    “Mr. Tilney’s instrument is wonderfully differentiated in each register and makes even the dense counterpoint of the E minor suite’s Prelude clear as a bell. The Music and Arts sonics are great, too...

    BRUNO WALTER’S BRUCKNER: THE EARLIEST RECORDINGS.

    $29.90

    Just as much as he was a champion of Mahler, Bruno Walter was an advocate for Bruckner’s music during his American years, at a time when the Austrian mystic’s works were believed to have severe structural flaws and were rarely programmed. In fact, for a 1933 guest appearance with the New York Philharmonic, Walter performed Bruckner’s Fifth, then a novelty, and after his forced immigration in 1939, he frequently and persuasively played the relatively unknown Fourth, Seventh, and Ninth Symphonies. We are fortunate to be able to present here two of his early public performances of Bruckner from broadcast recordings in the best possible sound.

    Amadeus Mozart: Symphony No. 35 in D, K. 385, (“Haffner”) NYPSO,  February 6, 1944, Carnegie Hall (live broadcast) [previously unissued], and Symphony No.9 in d (WAB 109)  Philadelphia Orchestra, February 28, 1948, Academy of Music (live broadcast) [previously unissued] Restoration engineer: Aaron Z.

    F. CHARLES ADLER CONDUCTS MAHLER

    $29.90

    British-born conductor Adler was a student of Mahler. His concert performance of the Adagio and Purgatorio, from the 10th Symphony, issued here for the first time, displays the conductor's feeling for the Mahler idiom. -- Adler's 1952 studio recording of the 3d Symphony for SPA, reissued here, served as introduction to the score for many music lovers, even other conductors.  Leonard Bernstein came up to Hannah Adler at an embassy function to tell her how much he learned from Charles's Mahler recordings. Today we can appreciate Adler's recording as something more than merely an earnest effort.  In particular the breadth of the first and final movements, in which the conductor gives himself enough elbow room for all sorts of phrasing felicities, and the ineffable Viennese charm of the inner movements have not quite been duplicated in dozens of later recordings.

    CD-1219(2) VERDI: REQUIEM AND TE DEUM. A PREVIOUSLY UNISSUED TOSCANINI CONCERT RECORDING. With Herva Nelli (soprano), Nan Merriman (mezzo-soprano), William McGrath (tenor) and Norman Scott (bass) and the NBC Symphony Orchestra Collegiate Chorale under Robert Shaw Carnegie Hall, New York, April 26, 1948, cond. Arturo Toscanini. Digital restoration: Aaron Z. Snyder (2008). Notes by Harris Goldsmith. Total times = 61:35 and 37:19. UPC# 0-17685-12192 0


    BUZZ: Harris Goldsmith writes in his note: "This 1948 version is almost completely without mishap. Indeed, there is ample reason to consider it the finest of the Maestro's achievements with this monumental Masterpiece [the Requiem]. The pacing resembles that of the November 23rd, 1940 performance in its nobility and unhurried breadth. A few sections of the Dies Irae are a shade tauter, less rhetorical and more flowing. A comparison between the 1938 BBC Requiem, which seems to me overly beefy and sectionalized, with the 1940 broadcast (Music & Arts CD 4240) affords striking evidence of Toscanini's quest for greater classicism and economy. By the 1948 performance that transition had been carried a step further still. But happily, there is nary a trace of that "late-Toscanini" impatience so characteristic of the 1950 La Scala and 1951 NBC Requiems (whether live or doctored recordings)". Learn More
