Descripción del producto
Seit seinem Sieg 1998 beim 11. Internationalen Tschaikowsky-Wettbewerb in Moskau hat sich Denis Matsuev als einer der führenden russischen Pianisten seiner Generation etabliert. Besonders seine Interpretationen von Werken der russischen Klaviermusik haben stets die einhellige Zustimmung der Kritiker gefunden, und so verwundert es nicht, dass er für seine CD bei MARIINSKY mit Rachmaninoffs drittem Klavierkonzert und der Rhapsodie über ein Thema von Paganini zwei der bekanntesten, aber auch anspruchvollsten Klassiker der russischen Konzertliteratur ausgewählt hat. Als kongeniale musikalische Partner standen dem Künstler Valery Gergiev und das Mariinsky Orchester zur Verfügung. Zu hören bekommen wir also eine durch und durch russische Lesart der beiden Werke. Die hervorragende Akustik der St. Petersburger Mariinsky Concert Hall macht diese SACD-Aufnahme auch zu einem klangtechnischen Ereignis.

This new recording by Dennis Matsuev however, is definitely one of the best Rachmaninoff 3rds I have ever heard although he skips 13 bars in the last movement.The reason I give this CD 5 stars is because there are many passages of the Concerto that are fresh and spontaneous and therefore sound as if you are hearing the music for the first time, and also the sound quality is absolutely stunning and in the demonstration category.On the downside, Matsuev tends to rush some of the most gorgeous sections of the 2nd movement, namely at page 41 where the composer has written: "maestoso" not "Allegro" and in the last movement he skips 13 bars (all of pages 60 & 61) and during the thundering tocatta towards the end of the last movement you can barely hear his lefthanded octaves at page 75 which are electrifying in the hands of pianist Santiago Rodriguez who by the way, doesnt skip anything nor does he rush the gorgeous 2nd movement. Santiago Rodriguez's 1998 digitally recorded live performance, will always be a top contender as one of the greatest performances this piece has ever known with the Penguin CD Guide giving it their highest recommendation (a Rosette) while comparing him to William Kapell and Horowitz.(He won the Silver Medal during the 1981 Van Cliburn International Piano Competition.) So if you buy this CD with Dennis Matsuev I am certain that you will enjoy it. But be aware that there are better performances of both works available, however none can quite match the incredible sound of this one.(But if I was living on a desert island, at the top of my must have list would be Pletnev's DVD of the Rhapsody and Olga Kern's DVD of the Concerto, she has 2 but my favorite is the one in Fort Worth Texas June 2001, of her Gold Medal winning performance.Watching this beautiful young woman give the performance of a lifetime is something that words cannot describe)
Matsuev's technique isn't merely brilliant and powerful. He can handle any shading at any speed, making the finger-busting passages sound fluid, like pearls dropping from the sky. He's more musical than the piece itself, and so is Gergiev. They remove any taint of trashiness. D -- despite his aristocratic manner, Rachmaninov was tempted by the tawdry and by empty displays of note-spinning. This is a great reading for non-fans of the Rach Three like me. The proportion of clattery junk is blessedly low, as it was with Volodos under Levine.
I've heard Matsuev give an eye-opening performance of the Paganini Rhapsody, a much better piece. His secret was that he found a way to turn each variation into a miniature tone poem. He does the same here. Gergiev starts out with a bold statement of the famous theme, and his soloist enters immediately with delicate filigree to announce that this is going to be a scintillating, often witty reading that takes full advantage of Rachmaninov's mastery of piano tone (not that anyone has ever surpassed his magical touch when it comes to performance). Together, Gergiev and Matsuev find a dlightful variety in the score. I can't think of a previous modern reading that even comes close.
Also, the days of bad recording seem to be past in Russia. Both piano and orchestra are given superlative sound.
This is the case here, since Matsuev simply sparks in Rachmaninov's beloved Paganini Rhapsody or the overwhelming 3rd piano concerto. The soloist finds a pathless way to the very essence of these mighty works and succeeds to present them to us as fresh masterpieces full of surprises and spectacular accents, in a very personal manner, without being tributary to any older canonical version, though without letting a bothering impression of ostentatious originality. This freshness looks more evident in Rhapsody where the vivid approach unveils a deep empathy with the composer's intentions, with the mood of each variation reflecting strange premonitory accents. While the colossal weight of the Concerto can't be avoided, the large-scale pianistic displays and the dependence on the orchestral paste allowing little room for novelty. The lyrical side is not neglected throughout, but subtly potentiated by minute inflexions and a detail-oriented finger-work.
The recorded sound is gorgeous, the orchestral support offered by Mariinsky under maestro Gergiev flawless and inspiring. Highly recommended!
