Essential Bach: 36 Greatest Masterpieces
J.S. Bach

Decca, 2003

It is not possible to fit 36 Bach masterpieces on two CDs, so what Essential Bach does is present individual movements from across a range of the composer's work. The anthology is clearly aimed at the newcomer, and the absence of booklet notes to put the music in context is disappointing. We are only given titles, performers, and what films the extracts have been featured in, from Rollerball to The English Patient . On the plus side, most ...

Ecm Records, 2013

Beethovens Diabelli Variations are considered a magnum opus of the piano repertoire, a towering contribution to the genre and an entire Encyclopedia of pianism. Following his monumental exploration of the 32 Sonatas, Andras Schiff has now recorded - on two period instruments remarkable, contrasting versions of the Diabelli Variations alongside major late works with intrinsic ties to them. The Sonata Op. 111 and the Diabelli Variations (CD 1) ...


Bach: Well Tempered Clavier, Books 1 & 2
Johann Sebastian Bach, Andras Schiff

Ecm Records, 2012

As a young pianist, Andras Schiff earned wide esteem for his 1980s recordings of the major keyboard works of J.S. Bach; in recent years, as part of his long-term relationship with ECM, he has gone back to Bach as a sage veteran, earning more acclaim for his New Series recordings of the Goldberg Variations (2001) and the six Partitas (2007). The New York Times said, Mr. Schiff is, in Bach, a phenomenon. He doesn t so much perform it as emit, ...

An Equal Music
Equal Music

Decca, 2000

Vikram Seth's novel An Equal Music is as evocative a portrait of the world of chamber music as you could wish for, but Seth is the first to say that words "can only attempt to describe what cannot truly be described." This two-CD set adds the inevitably missing dimension to a great book, with performances of works featured in the story. They include the world-premiere recording of Beethoven's String Quintet in C minor, an obscure work that is ...


Great Pianists of the 20th Century - Selections from the definitive collection [Sampler]
Fryderyk Chopin, Johannes Brahms, ...

Polygram Records Philips, 1998

Philips' 100-volume Great Pianists of the 20th Century series is one of the most ambitious projects ever put together by a record company. For all the debate that will surely ensue over who was chosen and who was passed over, it's obvious that careful, loving attention has gone into the selection of content for the happy 72 to be admitted to this special pantheon (certain especially significant pianists are allotted two or even three volumes, ...

Andras Schiff: In Concert
Robert Schumann, Andras Schiff

Umvd Labels, 2002

Robert Schumann's dense yet soaring keyboard textures, obsessive rhythmic repetitions, and restless polyphonic mind inspire András Schiff's poetic virtuosity to rarefied heights of music making in the Humoreske, the eight Novelletten, and the Sonata No. 3 (better known as the Concerto Without Orchestra). In the Sonata's outer movements, Schiff unleashes power with canny expressive economy, while the variations in the Andantino lusciously ...
