Perényi, Miklós (cello) - Britten / Bach / Ligeti

Leveranstid: Skickas vanligtvis inom 2-5 dagar

"Konstmusikens förnyelse har påfallande ofta handlat om en dialog med traditionen och det förflutna. På denna porträttskiva med musik för solocello låter den ungerske cellisten Miklós Perényi Bachs sjätte cellosvit inramas av Brittens tredje cellosvit från 1971 och Ligetis tvåsatsiga sonat från 1948/1953. Man hör hur Britten och Ligeti hämtar både uttryckskraft och en sorts motspänstig strävhet ur detta samtal med Bach, och det dialogiska tillståndet präglar också Perényis spel. Man upptäcker knappt när Britten övergår i Bach, eller när Ligeti tar vid; musiken blir just en kontinuitet, ett ständigt utfrågande."

Miklós Perényi, cello

After inspired performance alongside András Schiff on the prize-winning recording of Beethoven's Complete Music for Piano and Violoncello (Cannes Classical Award, Jahrespreis der Deutschen Schallplattenkritik), and earlier important contributions to György Kurtág's Music für Streichinstrumente, here is Miklo´s Perényi's first ECM solo recital recording. The album was recorded in the exceptional acoustic of the Auditorio Radiotelevisione svizzera, Lugano, highly responsive to the Hungarian cellist's sound and dynamic range. As Paul Griffiths writes, "Through Perényi's artistry we come to understand how the sound of the cello - such a rich sound here, as natural as wood, with the grain and the strength of wood - cannot be separated from the composition being realized, nor the composition from its instrument. There is no music without sound, and there is no sound without music. Perényi's sound speaks to us warmly and sagely and also humorously of the cello, of its sonorous possibilities, of its exceptionalness in western music as a solo instrument that addresses us from a low register, of its whole history and culture. We cannot forget for a moment that what we are hearing is cello sound, and the fine detail of this recording may even convince us at times that we are hearing the action of the cello being played. Yet in no way does this diminish our closeness to the music. On the contrary, the more we hear the sound, the more we hear the music."

In juxtaposing, Benjamin Britten's Third Suite op. 87 and Johann Sebastian Bach's Suite VI D-Major BWV 1012, Perenyi illuminates an historical interconnection. Britten wrote his cello suites for Rostropovich, inspired by hearing him playing the Bach suites. Rostropovich had hailed each of Britten's cello suites as masterpieces but singled out the third (written 1971) for special praise: "sheer genius", in his words. Into the fabric of the thematic material Britten wove fragments of melodies from Russian folk songs, only allowing them to emerge fully in the final movement. On this disc, Bach's last cello suite follows Britten's, and Perényi's Bach dances with elegance and energy.

The album concludes with a return to Hungary, and Ligeti's cello sonata of 1948-1953. Ligeti released the piece for publication only in 1979, so it figures in the chronology (as the liner notes point out) both before and after the Britten. Meanwhile a significant piece in the contemporary repertoire, it's a powerful, heartfelt work from a composer who had himself studied the cello.
