Image of Maurizio Pollini


Perhaps more of an advocate for contemporary music than any other major pianist essentially rooted in traditional repertory, Maurizio Pollini was born in Milan, Italy. He learned quickly and was given piano lessons from Carlo Lonati from an early age, making his public debut at the age of nine. Enrolling in the Milan Conservatory, he studied with Carlo Vidusso. In 1957 he performed a recital ... Read more in Amazon's Maurizio Pollini Store

3 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Piano lover on 18 May 2010
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
CD1 starts with "Davidsbündlertänze (18) for piano, Op. 6". This is the first time I listened to those pieces and Maurizio Pollini is lyrical and passionate.
Next is Piano Sonata No. 3 in F minor ("Concerto Without Orchestra"), Op. 14 which he plays beautiful.

CD2 starts with Allegro for piano in B minor, Op. 8, then the pieces "Kreisleriana, 8 fantasies for piano, Op. 16" and "Gesänge der Frühe (5), for piano, Op. 133".
Allegro in B is played with passion, and the pieces shows lyricism.

I would highly recommend this 2 CD Schumann.

A high watermark of Schumann interpretation. 27 July 2009
By Abert - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This dual CD item contains the releases by Pollini on Schumann's Davidsbündlertänze; Concert sans orchestre (Sonata No. 3 in f minor) on CD 1, and Allegro in B minor, Op. 8; Kreisleriana (8 fantasies); 5 Gesänge der Frühe (morning songs) on CD 2, and is a real bargain considering that the contents were released earlier under separate headings.
Having listened to Schumann by the earlier German masters like Kempff and more contemporary pianists like Lupu, Pollini's Schumann pieces can rightfully boast as the most lyrically passionate versions. You may argue that Kempff's Davidsbündlertänze set has more philosophical substance, while Lupu's Kreisleriana set has more lilt, they nonetheless lack the tonal beauty and esthetic lyricism that form the hallmark of Pollini's pianism, of which are well-deployed in these works by Schumann.
There are controversial views on the Sonata No. 3 in f minor on the version adopted by Pollini in this recording. As a brand new ear to this piece, I absolutely find no problem with this version, and even if the latter revised version is a better composition, this earlier form is surely worth listening under the hands of Pollini, with its sparkling youthful dynamism.
The five `Morning Songs' belong to Schumann's much later composition period. The aura is much more sober and dark than the other pieces in this dual-set which belong to the composer's earlier period.
Together with Pollini's other Schumann outputs over the span of almost 30 years, these pieces here represent a high-watermark of Schumann interpretation and performance that no serious music lover could afford to miss.

Ardent schumannesque utterances with Maurizio Pollini 14 Sept. 2014
By P. Adrian - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Although Maurizio Pollini has established himself as an unparalleled interpreter of Chopin and Beethoven, Schumann has remained a constant of his career. The Symphonic Etudes of the German romantic received from this very pianist – in my opinion – one of the supremely wonderful renditions in the recordings catalogue. On this twofer, Pollini explores other ardent pieces by Schumann for solo piano such as Davidsbündlertänze op.6, or Kreisleriana op.8, or Concert sans orchestra op.14, or Gesänge der Frühe op.133. Every single work requires its own mood to be conveyed and the Italian master knows how to do this in each case. They all are fully romantic utterances so suitable to Pollini’s flamboyant pianism. Achieved when Pollini was in full command of his craftsmanship (as he was going to turn 60) these recordings testify for his fabulous keyboard wizardry.
