Tchaikovsky, Pyotr - Rococo Variations - Várdai, István (cello)


Lägg till önskelista + 89 kr - Utgången

An ardent admirer of Mozart, Tchaikovskys splendid Variations on a Rococo Theme are full of subtle homages to the Classical composer. The theme itself, however, is an original invention by Tchaikovsky himself rather than an excerpt from the past.Composed for German cellist Wilhelm Fitzenhagen, the piece was not performed in its original form for many years after its initial composition, as Fitzenhagen had insisted on making changes to the structure and virtuosic cadenzas for its first performance, against Tchaikovskys wishes.Both versions are included on this release, allowing the listener to fully appreciate the struggle between Tchaikovskys Classical vision and Fitzenhagens desire for the cello to shine. The composers love for Mozart also comes to the fore in the Nocturne Op.19 No.4, one of six pieces initially composed for piano that showcases the lyrical melodies and clear structure Tchaikovsky strived to create. The folksonglike Andante cantabile was one of the composers most popular movements during his lifetime, and, as was common, was often performed separately from the rest of the quartet. Along with Tchaikovskys last piece for cello, the sprightly Pezzo capriccioso, this album exemplifies the composers innate understanding of the instrument and illustrates perfectly how he brings this understanding to life. Featured on this disc is Hungarian cellist István Várdai, whose precocious talents led him to debut in The Hague at the age of just 13. Since then he has enjoyed a busy career, regularly performing at prestigious venues all over the world and most recently winning the 63rd ARD International Music Competition in Munich. This release sees him joined by the Pannon Philharmonic, also hailing from his home country, with young Finnish conductor Tibor Bogányi (himself a cellist) at the helm, whose 2013 release of Nielsen and Heininen was described by Gramophone magazine as exquisite.
