Violin Sonatas 1-10; Allegro; Contretanz; Menuetto (4 CD

This complete cycle of Beethoven violin sonatas was recorded during a series of live performances in 1998. Mutter devoted the entire year, together with her partner, Lambert Orkis, to an extensive global tour focused on these works, and the accounts are infused with a sense of cross-connection, expressive freedom, and depth of insight acquired from such prolonged concentration. It shows Mutter in full maturity, commanding the artistic confidence to take risks and imprint her intensely personal signature. Mutter's characteristically sumptuous, caressing tone tends to be overstated for Beethoven's heartily playful turns and mercurial humor in the fast movements of the Op. 12 group, but the luminous beauty with which she phrases the Adagio of the third sonata is just one of many passages (consider, for example, Sonata No. 8's slow movement, as well) of sustained, heart-stopping poetry on this set. The famous "Spring" Sonata gains an added dimension in the context of the passionately engaged performance of its preceding companion/counterpart predecessor (the Fourth Sonata in A Minor). There's a full partnership between violin and piano (too often missing in accounts of these works) that allows Mutter and Orkis to play off each other with full-blooded spontaneity, perhaps at its mos...

Constant Lambert is perhaps better known today for his strident views on his contemporaries, but he was also a talented composer of delightful, anarchic music, influenced particularly by Stravinsky and Ravel. On this mid-priced Helios series reissue, the Nash Ensemble presents a sampling of Lambert's highly colorful works. This recording, a fascinating selection of pieces by one of the twentieth century's most original and perplexing figures, is a must for anyone interested in twentieth-century music.

"Forest for the Trees": Beethoven piano sonatas as integrated cycles: A Monograph

"Forest for the Trees": Beethoven piano sonatas as

Beethoven's piano sonatas have been studied from different aspects. While many previous studies have investigated the internal coherence within individual Beethoven sonatas, this book provides a broad analytic overview of the connections that exist between the sonatas revealing the composer's approach to the idea of an opus as a unified set of several organically coherent works. The study identifies the related opuses, and adduces the ways in which cohesion operates on the macro-level by the investigation of formal design, harmonic and melodic language, affective key characteristics, thematic and rhythmic interrelationships, dramatic character, stylistic congruence, and other methods employed by Beethoven to unify individual sonatas into cohesive sets. Given the remarkable individuality and originality of singular sonatas, it is easy to mistake the “forest for the trees,” so to speak. It is only when one begins to draw back and see a broader vista that the many interconnections between the disparate sonatas become more visible, allowing us to grasp and to understand the individual trees as part of the forest. The analysis should be useful to both performers as well as scholars.

The Piano & Percussion Arrangement of Ginastera’s First Piano Sonata: Alberto Ginastera’s Piano Sonata No. 1, Op. 22

The Piano & Percussion Arrangement of Ginastera’s First

Widely recognized in Argentina as the nation’s quintessential standard piano work, Alberto Ginastera’s Piano Sonata No. 1, Op. 22 has long been an integral part of recital programs and piano competitions around the world. In recent years, the international percussion and piano communities have used arrangements of contemporary compositions to broaden the repertoire for this combination of instruments. This study sheds light on the details of the process of this arrangement. In particular, what types of percussion instruments were selected based on researching Ginastera’s few orchestral works. In addition, it documents the solo compositions up to the sonata that shed light on his use of the folk dance forms, which are incorporated in the sonata, and reveals how Ginastera uses these components so that interested percussionists can better explore the capabilities of the arrangement.

The Solo Guitar Works of Sir Richard Rodney Bennett: A theoretical analysis of Impromptus and Sonata for Guitar

The Solo Guitar Works of Sir Richard Rodney

Sir Richard Rodney Bennett (b. 1936) is one of Britain’s most versatile and celebrated composers of the twentieth-century. It is guitarists’ great fortune that he has written two works for the solo guitar. He composed Impromptus in 1968 to prepare him for writing a guitar concerto for the English guitarist, Julian Bream, and he later composed the Sonata in 1983 as a personal exercise to see how far he could expand upon what he had already set forth in the Impromptus. This book presents a study of the two solo guitar works of Sir Richard Rodney Bennett. This study offers a brief survey of previous writings on the two works, the reception of each work, an exploration of his musical language and style, and a discussion of the influences on his style. It also offers an in depth theoretical analysis of Bennett's use of twelve-tone serialism in the Impromptus, and how he departs from strict serialism in the Sonata. In addition to exploring pre-compositional techniques, this study presents analysis of form for each movement and the phrase structures in both pieces. It also brings to light some errata discovered in the Impromptus.

Franz Liszt - THE DANTE SONATA: The origin, the form and the significance of the Dante Sonata

Franz Liszt - THE DANTE SONATA: The origin,

The present document is a reflection upon Liszt'smost important piece, the Dante Sonata from the cycleAnnées de Pelèrinage. It represents the pinnacleachievement of the Italian Years and it is consideredone of the most difficult pieces to play from thestandard repertoire.The first chapter, A Foray through Liszt’s Années dePelèrinage, is a brief description of all piecescomprised in all volumes of the cycle.The second chapter, The Origin of the Dante Sonata,clarifies the circumstances of the compositionalinspiration and explains the controversy of the pieceas related to Victor Hugo's poem.The third chapter, The Form and its Significance,emphasizes the fantasy elementscontained in the sonata.The fourth chapter, A Selective Musical Analysis, isa detailed analysis of four major musical components:the triton motive, the thematic transformations ofthe themes, the rhythmical pattern and the harmonicstructure. The commentary in the Afterword defends mypersonal opinion that the piece possesses anon-programmatic character despite its allusive titleAprés une lecture du Dante.
