    Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto No. 2 / Balakirev: Islamey (Speakers Corner)

    Rachmaninov's piano works, and in particular his Second Piano Concerto, have fired the enthusiasm of music lovers throughout the world. Dedicated to the psychologist Dr. Nikolai Dahl who had cured the composer of depression, the Second Piano Concerto was given its premiere in Moscow on 10 November 1901 with Rachmaninov himself at the piano and has proved itself to be one of the most successful of its genre among Russian piano repertory. The introduction itself with its powerful sequence of chords rivets the audience's attention and makes each and every listener eager to hear what is yet to come. Katchen's interpretation is particularly impressive for its austere and powerful introduction, but the lyrical passages too - superabundant in this work - are filled with a delightful, dreamy lightness. Tchaikovsky's influence, a Russian soulfulness, and a certain melancholic yearning in the opulent melodies - all are brilliantly portrayed by the pianist. And he finds an ideal partner in the London Symphony Orchestra conducted by Sir Georg Solti. Solti proves yet again that he is a master of phrasing and interwoven part-writing; resolutely, with elegance and sharply pointed rhythm, he leads the soloist and orchestra to a brilliant finish.




    Recording: June 1958 at Kingsway Hall, London by Kenneth Wilkinson / Production: John Culshaw





    About Speakers Corner



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasise that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Tchaikovsky: Piano Concerto No. 1 (Speakers Corner)

    By the end of February 1875, Tchaikovsky had completed the orchestration of his Piano Concerto No. 1 which was given its first performance in the same year in Boston by Hans von BÜlow. In St. Petersburg the composer himself conducted his concert on the first of December.



    The main theme of the first movement is based upon a Russian folksong, and the finale takes the form of a splendid "danse russe", while the middle section takes up motifs of a french chansonette from Bizet's Carmen.



    Among the many pianists who have recorded this piano concert, Clifford Curzon is remarkable for dispensing with exaggerations and mannerisms in his interpretation. His outstanding technique and analytic skills combine to produce a rendering of impeccable homogeneity.



    The fine sound quality is yet another attractive feature of this impressive recording.

    Tchaikovsky: Piano Concerto No.1 in B Flat Minor

    High virtuosity is satisfyingly combined with a certain elegance and clarity of utterance. Maazel (with the LSO) follows Ashkenazy scrupulously and whips up the excitement when required . . . Ashkenazy has a particularly quick response to Tchaikovsky's switches of mood, his flashes of brilliance or melancholy. - Gramophone

    Tchaikovsky / Mendelssohn: First Piano Concertos

    Lang Lang's debut recording for Deutsche Grammophon showcased the young pianist's extraordinary gifts in celebrated recordings of Tchaikovsky's and Mendelssohn's First Piano Concertos. Mentor Daniel Barenboim led the forces of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. "This [album] is guaranteed to make any serious music-lover pause . . . Here is youth, freshness, force and agility, with no hint of the routine." THE TIMES OF LONDON

    Mozart: Piano Concerto No.25 & No.20

    The first new release for ten years from Martha Argerich and Claudio Abbado is their first ever album of concertos by Mozart. The legendary pianist and conductor add the sublime music of Mozart to their unrivalled, multi award-winning DG discography of concertos by Tchaikovsky, Chopin, Ravel, Prokofiev, Beethoven and Liszt.


    Both concertos were recorded with Claudio Abbado's Orchestra Mozart, at concert performances at the 2013 Lucerne Festival that had critics searching
    for new superlatives. The album contrasts two very different works. Written in D minor, the key of the Queen Of the Night and the opening of Mozart's Requiem, the darkly dramatic No.20, K.466 has a stormy, operatic temperament that looks forward eighteen months to the premiere of Don Giovanni.


    With its majestic and radiant opening and a march famously reminiscent of the Marseillaise, No.25 in C major, K.503 is the culmination of the twelve transcendent concertos Mozart wrote in Vienna between 1784 and 1786. This release is Martha Argerich's first recording of solo concertos by Mozart on Deutsche Grammophon.

    2. Andante [Live]

    Liszt: Piano Concertos Nos. 1 & 2 (Speakers Corner)

    Liszt's Piano Concertos occupy a special position in the genre for several reasons. Firstly they mirror the amazing keyboard virtuosity of the composer, and secondly they point the way to modern music through their daring harmonies and free treatment of traditional compositional forms. Any pianist who tackles the mighty E flat major Concerto, which was premiered by Liszt himself under the baton of Berlioz in 1855, soon realises that he has taken on a mammoth task. Instead of an over-dimensional, weighty performance, Byron Janis and the Moscow Philharmonic present a compact reading of this tightly-knit composition. Janis, a pupil of Horowitz, displays his bravura in the appropriate places, but also knows how to use his technical prowess - perfected in his early years - to produce finely-chiselled keyboard poetry, freeing the work from its often-cited bulkiness. This is particularly effective in the intoxicating Finale, where the pianist's brilliance amalgamates with triumphal orchestral playing.



    In the Second Concerto, too, it is clear that great care has been taken with the score. Beginning with the elegiac entry, via the pulsating Agitato up to the expressive melodic playing, Byron Janis and Gennadi Rozhdestvensky fill this visionary symphonic poem with wonderful timbral colouring which is brought to a climax in the sparkling Finale. When music from the New German School sounds like it does here by means of Russian hands, then it certainly deserves a place in our Russian Edition.



    Recording: June 1962 in Bolshoi Hall of the Tchaikovsky Conservatory, Moscow, Russia,

    Tchaikovsky: Klavierkonzert

    A win at the International Chopin Piano Competition in 1965, at age 24, officially put Martha Argerich on the musical map. An exciting and mercurial artist, Argerich has recorded extensively throughout a career that has encompassed works by Bach through Beethoven, Schumann, Liszt, Debussy, Ravel and Bartók among others.



    Here, the multiple Grammy-winner and 2012 Gramophone Hall of Fame inducted Argentinian pianist performs Tchaikovsky's Concerto No. 1 In B Flat Minor For Piano & Orchestra, Op. 23 with accompaniment from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra as conducted by Charles Dutoit. "The very fine sound of the horns right at the start augurs well and the wonderful weight and quality of Martha Argerich's opening if chords suggest that at any rate one need have no worries about the quality of this recording...The present record is really superb. So is Argerich, giving a performance of great range and of much subtlety...Praise must go, too, to the conductor, Dutoit who accompanies excellently and with notably good phrasing." - Gramophone/1971

    Lang Lang In Paris

    Lang Lang and Chopin have long been a winning combination, with the 2012 release of The Chopin Album being his most successful Sony album to date. Tchaikovsky has also featured prominently in Lang Lang's career - most notably in his international breakthrough at age seventeen performing Tchaikovsky's first piano concerto at Ravinia's "Gala of the Century." With Lang Lang in Paris the superstar classical pianist combines his love for both composers. Already celebrated worldwide for his Chopin interpretations, Lang Lang selects the four virtuosic and well known Scherzi to display his interpretative ability and renowned technical command. The album also features the rarer Tchaikovsky Seasons, twelve works commissioned by a Russian music magazine in 1875.

    The Nutcracker Suite (Pure Pleasure)

    In 1960, Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn arranged their own virtuosic adaptation of Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky's The Nutcracker Suite for the Duke Ellington Orchestra. Featuring nine cleverly arranged movements (boasting equally smart titles like Toot Toot Tootie Toot and Sugar Rum Cherry), it's the quintessential Ellington blend of wit and sophistication. It's amazing how swinging and sexy the Nutcracker Suite can sound!
