Product Description

Product Description

Philippe Entremont: The Complete Piano Concerto Recordings, 17 CDs in a clamshell box with booklet, will be offered at budget price.

In 1958 Entremont’s debut concerto recordings for Columbia Masterworks of the Grieg A minor and Rachmaninoff Rhapsody on a Theme by Paganini helped put the 23-year-old pianist on the international map. Generations of American music lovers grew up with the Entremont/Ormandy Rachmaninoff 1st and 4th, Saint-Saëns 2nd and 4th, Ravel G major, Liszt 1st and 2nd Concertos and Falla’s Nights in the Gardens of Spain, plus the pianist’s highly regarded collaborations with Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic in the Tchaikovsky 1st, Rachmaninoff 2nd, and Bartók’s 2nd and 3rd Concertos. Entremont is the featured soloist in the Concerto for Piano and Wind Instruments and Capriccio for Piano and Orchestra included in the label’s composer-supervised Stravinsky series, along with composer-led performances of concertos by Milhaud and Jolivet. For keyboard scintillation and ebulliance, collectors will welcome Entremont’s long unavailable Khachaturian Concerto and Liszt Hungarian Fantasia with Seiji Ozawa leading the New Philharmonia Orchestra, and a complete survey of Saint-Saëns’ works for piano and orchestra with L’Orchestre du Capitole de Toulouse under Michel Plasson.

Born in Reims on June 7, 1934, Entremont studied at first with his musician parents (his mother was a pianist, his father a conductor), and then with Marguerite Long. As a teenager at the Paris Conservatoire, Entremont won many prizes, and, at sixteen, became a Laureate at the International Long/Thibaud Competition. The following year he began his major career, starting with a top prize in the Brussels Queen Elisabeth Competition, and subsequent tours through Europe, the United States and South America. He made his conducting debut on disc in 1968 directing the Collegium Musicum of Paris from the piano in Mozart’s Concertos Nos. 13 and 17, increasing his podium profile in later life as music director of the New Orleans Symphony (1980–86), principal conductor (1986–88) and music director (1988–89) of the Denver Symphony. He currently serves as Principal Guest Conductor for the Shanghai Broadcasting Symphony Orchestra and is Conductor Laureate of the Vienna Chamber Orchestra and the Israel Chamber Orchestra.

5.0 out of 5 stars Alphabetical listing with conductors identified 14 April 2014
By John Fowler TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The initial run of this boxed set had a grievous problem with CD 18 (Saint-Saens Concerto 3)
BUT IT HAS BEEN CORRECTED.
Read the post-script at the end of this review to make certain that you do not have a faulty copy.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Of the 37 works in this collection:
- 11 are conducted by Eugene Ormandy with the Philadelphia Orchestra,
- 5 are conducted by Leonard Bernstein with the New York Philharmonic,
- Pierre Boulez conducts Ravel's Left-Hand Concerto with the Cleveland Orchestra,
- 4 are conducted by the composers: Igor Stravinsky, Darius Milhaud, Andre Jolivet, and Leonard Bernstein. *

Pretty good company for a pianist who many critics viewed as a lightweight.
He was left out of the 100 volume "Great Pianists of the 20th Century" collection issued by Philips/Steinway in 1999
I don't remember hearing many complaints.

My first exposure to Entremont came in the 1960s when, as a teenager, I joined the Columbia Record Club (Classical Division)
He was pretty much their house pianist.
At least for the big Romantic showpieces.
[Beethoven, Brahms, Schubert and Schumann were the reserve of Rudolf Serkin].

Entremont's big break came in 1954 when Eugene Ormandy heard the 20 year-old Frenchman play, and invited him to appear with the Philadelphia Orchestra.
This may have been part of the problem: Ormandy was also viewed as a lightweight by many critics.
Record buyers had a higher opinion.
Rachmaninov had a higher opinion.

Bartók: Concerti No. 2, 3 - Bernstein, New York Philharmonic
Bernstein: Symphony No.

1.0 out of 5 stars BEWARE 12 May 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an excellent box set but beware as disc 18 has some music missing and a duplicate band from the previous CD.

As far as I know sony have not owned up to this and as it is such a large set it would prove costly to return and get back exactly the same CD.

watch this space!

5.0 out of 5 stars excellent set of an excellent pianist 1 July 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I owned several of these as LPs during the 60s when I was starting to enjoy Classical. Entremont's performances were great then and they still are. Some have whined about a problem wuth CD 18. I bought my set several months ago and nothing was amiss. Now I'm hoping Sony collects his solo recordings as a fitting encore.
