Informationen

"[...] this Italian pianist manages to make it all seem as though created on the spur of the moment [...]." (BBC Music Magazine)
"Where others press ahead, Lucchesini lovingly lingers." (Gramophone)
"[...] a recording of exemplary clarity and perfection - also in relation to the sound." (Fono Forum)

Following the first instalment of his three-part Schubert series, the Florentine pianist Andrea Lucchesini now approaches the sanctum of Schubert's keyboard music: the Piano Sonata in B-flat major D. 960, composed a few weeks before the composer's untimely death in November 1828.

Over the last two decades, the 54-year-old pianist, who studied with Maria Tipo for many years, has increasingly devoted himself to chamber music and has also recorded the complete Beethoven sonatas. Both experiences influence his recording of Schubert's late work for the piano. Here, too, Lucchesini reveals a cosmos of colours and he revisits the tempi, emphasising contrasts and dramatic curves. Chamber music has inspired him to develop a "conversational" style - often there is a sense of dialogue, announcement or even lively communication.

Amongst the last three piano sonatas, the Sonata in B-flat major adopts a lyrical tone. But above all, Schubert takes time to develop his musical themes - Robert Schumann was astounded by what he called the "heavenly lengths" (and he intended to emphasise the "heavenly" aspect). But there are also abysses that were probably as inexplicable for contemporary listeners as they are for us today: sudden stops, trills in the lowest registers, the funeral music of the second movement - and then again a carefree scherzo and a serene finale.
On this album the monumental Sonata in B-flat major is combined with the three piano pieces D. 946.

Volume 3 is due to be released in autumn 2020.

Wie schon in der ersten Folge dieser Reihe spielt der italienische Pianist Andrea Lucchesini einen sehr kontrastreichen und sicher nicht homogenMehr lesen

Wie schon in der ersten Folge dieser Reihe spielt der italienische Pianist Andrea Lucchesini einen sehr kontrastreichen und sicher nicht homogen konzipierten Schubert. Der erste Satz der Sonate D. 960 ist aufgewühlt, scharf akzentuiert, er enthält gedankliche Vertiefungen aber auch resolutes Aufbäumen, ja manchmal ein richtiges ‘mit der Faust auf den Tisch hauen’. Das Andante versenkt sich nicht nur im Schmerz, es zuckt auch in diesem Schmerz auf und das rhythmisch geschärfte Scherzo schlägt regelrechte Purzelbäume, ehe das Finale in drängendem Fluss und sehr dezidiertem Kraft die Sonate beendet.

Den drei ‘Klavierstücken’ D. 946, eigentlich der dritten Reihe von ‘Impromptus’, gibt der Pianist einen starken Charakter. Jedes ist kontrastreich und lebt von einer großen emotionalen Spannweite und einer breiten Ausdrucksvielfalt.

As in the first episode of this series, Italian pianist Andrea Lucchesini’s Schubert is again extremely rich in contrast, and a conceptual homogeneity is certainly not among his priorities. The first movement of the Sonata D. 960 is agitated, sharply accentuated, it has depth but also shows resolute rebelliousness, sometimes even a real ‘banging the fist on the table’. The Andante not only sinks into the pain, it also considerably twitches in this pain, and the rhythmically sharpened Scherzo performs veritable somersaults. The Finale brings the sonata with a pressing flow and very determined power to an end.

The pianist gives the three ‘piano pieces’ D. 946, actually the third series of ‘Impromptus’, a strong character. Each of the three pieces is rich in contrast and lives from a great emotional range and a wide variety of expression.
