5.0 out of 5 stars Early-Schönberg's `Late-Brahms' Piano... 27 Feb 2011
By B.E.F. - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Young German artist Hardy Rittner is definitely on the way towards making a name for himself by employing high-definition recording techne while performing on period instruments.

Rittner's opened up a fissure of exploration in the late-Brahms/early-Schönberg nexus with his recent issues on the topflight MDG label.

On this issue Rittner performs on an 1870 Streicher and on a 1901 Steinway D.

Rittner's Schönberg readings here are fairly brisk in the event.

Of especial interest on this disc are the Drei Klavierstücke of 1894--virtually contemporaneous with the Op. 119 set of Brahms' last piano pieces.

These works--(c#-minor Andantino; F-major Andantino grazioso; a-minor Presto)--share characteristics of late-Brahms (metrical complexities; late-Romantic chordal thickness; arpeggiated figurations) while simultaneously exhibiting Schönbergian originalities (intense polyphony; sharp accelerandos; ambiguous harmonies; extensive chromaticism).

Recordings of Schönberg's 1894 Klavierstücke have been rare:

Elisabeth Klein, 1997
Gregorio Nardi, 1998
Sarah Rothenberg, 2000.

(Rothenberg's issue is remarkably prescient in its interpolation of the late-Brahms/early-Schönberg pieces.)
