Vladimir sofronitsky - complete recordings set no. 8


Irén Marik (1905 Szölnök-1986 Independence California) had studied with Bartók for some six months, as she explained to me. After she played some of his works to the composer,  he commented: “I see you understand it so we’ll work on other composers.”

The German edition of the set (and possibly others) includes a bonus CD with Clara Haskil ( Sonderausgabe zur Edition ) —raising to 5 the total number of CDs with her. This bonus CD contains her interpretation of some of Scarlatti 's piano sonatas from her 1947 Westminster LP, and is the first printing on CD of these recordings, according to the CD cover ( Erstveröffentlichung auf CD ).

Whether you recognize these musicians or not, they've all carved a place out for themselves in the music business and have become influential and prominent figures in the industry. They are some of the most famous male pianists ever, and there are many talented famous female piano players as well. If you love geeking out on music, we definitely recommend finding some of their music. 

In 1922, the old building was turned over to the Meyerhold Theater (the “TIM”) and for ten years was home to productions by the great director Vsevolod Meyerhold. In 1932, the TIM moved to the premises now occupied by the Yermolova Theater, while on Triumphal Square there began serious rebuilding and  reconstruction in accordance with the concepts of the director. Meyerhold wanted to construct a transformable stage of an unprecedented kind in which changes of scene could be made with the speed of lightning. A principal goal was to do away with the “footlight effect” and erase the boundary between actors and audience. The theatrical arena was to consist of two circular platforms capable of revolving and of being raised and lowered – a large one (the present stage) and a small one (today’s parterre) -- thereby allowing the action to move from one locale to another.

All extant recordings of the solo piano works, plus the violin sonata no 1 with Cecilia Hansen, are available on three CDs on the Appian label. Almost all these recordings are also available from St Laurent. Piano concertos nos 2 and 3 are available from Testament and St-Laurent.

For a period of five years, Scriabin was based in Moscow, during which time the first two of his symphonies were conducted by his old teacher Safonov.

This is quite a stark reminder of the shattering differences between concert hall performances and live recordings, the latter so much of an event than the former.
