Product Description

Review

The young Spanish pianist Javier Perianes brings colour and flair to Falla s Nights in the Gardens of Spain, matched by the rhythmic piquancy of the orchestra. The CD also contains Falla s works for solo piano, with a Spanish-inflected Chopinesque feel to an early Notturno and Mazurka but a more distinctive national identity in Serenata andaluza and the dynamic Fantasia bætica. A highly attractive disc. --Daily Telegraph, 3 September 2011

The Spanish pianist brings out the Moorish tinge of Manuel De Falla in a beautifully planned recital of solo pieces with Nights in the Garden of Spain as its centrepiece (BBC Symphony Orch, conducted by Josep Pons). Hearing the Nights in this context, rather than sandwiched between overture and symphony, feels acutely authentic and Perianes finds a tone that is precisely fit for purpose. A near-perfect project. --Norman Lebrecht, La scena musicale, 18 September 2011

The central performance of Noches en los jardines de España will warm any autumnal evening...Josep Pons knows this repertoire better than anyone and the BBC Symphony Orchestra responds with shivering intensity. Here, freshness and fire are kept in balance, and it's thrilling to feel the work rocking between those opposing temperatures. There's real swing to the dances, and surging dynamics and bristling precision deliver changes in tempo with sexy daring. Debussyian charge pervades the coda, rounding off the perfect accompaniment to 'Veranillo del Membrillo'. --Entartete Musik

4.0 out of 5 stars Veranillo del Membrillo 25 Nov 2011
By Entartete Musik TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The Spanish have a number of phrases for Indian Summer. It is called the 'Veranillo de San Miguel' or 'Veranillo de San Martín', the former for Michaelmas and the latter for a summer stretching into November. The more poetic name for it is 'Veranillo del Membrillo', the little summer of the quince. As if honouring that meteorological phenomenon, Harmonia Mundi has released a disc of de Falla's piano music with Spanish pianist Javier Perianes. While some of the solo piano works lack a little summer shimmer, the central performance of Noches en los jardines de España will warm any autumnal evening.

Perianes is terrific in the stumbling intimacy of the 1900 Canción. Limp phrasing, rhetorical echoes and generally lush textures make for a winsome performance. Yet there's a comparative coldness to the 1920 Homenaje - Le Tombeau de Claude Debussy. Perianes equates the detachment of de Falla's later idiom with emotional neutrality. Given the implicit homage, the performance leaves something wanting. But that absence is more than compensated by the Ravelian tremours and teases of Montañesa from the Cuatro piezas españolas. Here, as in the Canción, Perianes takes a more poetic hazy approach to de Falla's musical language (even in the more spirited passages).

But it's the centrepiece of Noches en los jardines de España that will most attract listeners. Josep Pons knows this repertoire better than anyone and the BBC Symphony Orchestra responds with shivering intensity. Here, freshness and fire are kept in balance, and it's thrilling to feel the work rocking between those opposing temperatures. There's real swing to the dances, and surging dynamics and bristling precision deliver changes in tempo with sexy daring. Debussyian charge pervades the coda, rounding off the perfect accompaniment to 'Veranillo del Membrillo'.

5.0 out of 5 stars LE SOIR DANS UN JARDIN D'ESPAGNE... 18 Oct 2011
By PVP - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"Je n'ai jamais pensé être un virtuose. La virtuosité, avec ses concerts en tournée, m'a toujours fait horreur", confiait Manuel de Falla à un journaliste en 1915, lui qui avait quasiment tourné le dos à la composition pour piano seul.

Il y reviendrait quelques fois, mais c'est un fait que ce corpus tient sur un seul disque avec les célèbres Nuits dans les jardins d'Espagne avec orchestre.

Les titres prétendent devoir à d'autres compositeurs, alors que cette musique est tellement personnelle ! Pour parvenir au bout de ce projet passionnant, Javier Perianes et Josep Pons sont revenus aux sources, les manuscrits conservés aux Archives M. de Falla à Grenade.

Ce choix éclaire les pièces de leur vraies lumières.
