Subtitled ''Guitar Études,'' this entertaining collection consists entirely of ''exercises'' ranging from the simple to the most fantastically virtuosic. Like Chopin's ''études,'' however, the term itself does not mean that the music is in any way sterile or academic, and even if it were, Segovia could make it sound like the greatest stuff in the world. His special brand of virtuosity never loses sight of the music's poetry or humanity. Although less well-known than much other Spanish guitar m

Debussy's Études are really the only set that deserves to be put beside Chopin's. What makes them so special? Like his, they are truly ''practice pieces,'' systematically exploring various aspects of keyboard technique. But at the same time, they are poetic works of art, full of fantasy, charm, and musical invention. Uchida's recording is almost universally regarded as the finest version of these works to appear in modern times. Her playing combines effortless virtuosity with pianistic precisio

Cd> Brazilian Music > Mpb - Brazilian Popular MusicCD > CLASSICAL MUSIC Emanuel Ax here offers a fine selection of Chopin, showcasing every aspect of the great Polish composer. The G Minor Ballade is played as poetically as the Scherzos are played expressively, with some of the more chaotic moments presented in the most melodious way. Ax rarely showboats and is mostly interested in Chopin's long lines. His tone is always warm and never brittle; the argument could be made that some of the music i

Alexis Weissenberg - Classic Archive Weissenberg was at the beginning of his substantial international career in these films, mostly made by French television in the 1960s. The one exception is a 1965 version of Stravinsky’s Three Movements from Petrouchka renowned in its time for attempting to mirror the music’s rhythms and moods. Directed by Åke Falck and filmed in a Stockholm studio, the camera is a creative partner with composer and pianist. So all kinds of odd angles are employed. If y

Debussy's Etudes were his last works for the piano. Moving away from the pictorial imagery that characterized most of his earlier piano music, Debussy began to compose more abstract pieces based on technical and intellectual problems. These pieces aren't as immediately appealing as his earlier piano works, and it takes a pianist like Garrick Ohlsson to make them palatable. He plays with virtuosity, intellectual rigor, and pianistic color that make this music fascinating, even if never moving. On

Few soloists have owned composers as definitively as Artur Rubinstein could claim Chopin. Rubinstein's delivery of the composer has struck many speechless for its clarity--assurance at once that this is extraordinary, complex music and that it's likable even to general audiences (who could be easily repelled by the music in a lesser pianist's hands). The more than 150 minutes of Rubinstein's Chopin collected here are stellar, from the seductive nocturnes (recorded in 1965) to Rubinstein's head-s

This elegantly packaged 10 disc retrospective surveys four decades of work by Philip Glass, from his earliest solo pieces to his world-renowned operas to his Oscar-nominated film scores. In music, words and pictures, it traces the evolution, as critic Tim Page puts it in his liner notes essay, of 'the first composer to win a wide, multi-generational audience in the opera house, the concert hall, the dance world, in film and in popular music-simultaneously.' The long-awaited release of this set f

When Maurizio Pollini took first prize in the 1960 Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw at age 18, the redoubtable Artur Rubinstein observed that ''technically, he already plays better than any of us in the jury.'' Yet supplied with that foundation of a technique as solid as granite, Pollini is at the furthest remove from the superficial virtuoso showman. The intellectual's dream pianist, he is best known as the exemplar of an objective analytical acumen--similar in approach to Pierre Boulez--that

Despite the slightly cramped, airless sonics, Claudio Arrau's characteristically warm and ample sonority makes itself felt in these 1956 recordings. The pianist may not scintillate or charm to the extent that Slavic pianists do in these works, yet he uncovers layers of depth and disquiet in the slower Études that others merely prettify. The treacherous extensions in the E- Flat Étude, for instance, are distinctly projected and balanced, rather than strummed. Even if some pieces might benefit f

The performers include the composer himself, the pianist Yvonne Loriod (his wife), Pierre Boulez, Marie-Claire Alain, and other champions of Messiaen's work. As a tantalizing and unique bonus, a full CD is devoted to an extensive interview with Messiaen recorded in 1988 in which he speaks about bird-song, color, travel, religious faith, opera and an ava
