Product description

Product Description

This series of TV programmes presents the very best of the 16th Verbier Festival with worldwide renowned artists such as Susan Graham, Martha Argerich, Stephen Kovacevich, Yuri Temirkanov and Philippe Jaroussky. Stephen Kovacevich, distinguished highly regarded American pianist and conductor, is famous for his tremendous interpretations of Beethoven, Mozart and Schumann which are renowned. He has conducted many of the world's finest orchestras, for example the Chamber Orchestra of Europe, London Mozart Players, City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra or Royal Liverpool Philharmonic. He has won unsurpassed admiration for his interpretations of the piano oeuvre by Beethoven, Brahms, Mozart and Schubert for the thoughtful and intense creativity; his concert appearances are always unique. Kovacevich made his concert debut as a pianist at the age of 11. When he was 14, he already played Ravel's Piano Concerto in G major and Schumann's Piano Concerto in A minor with the San Francisco Symphony Orchestra. His international reputation has been built both on his concert appearances, renowned for their thoughtfulness and re-creative intensity, and on the highly acclaimed recordings he has made throughout his career.

Review

In a period when Beethoven interpretation has become fairly standardized, Kovacevich remains a free spirit, making a profoundly personal response to the music and playing in an improvisatory style, which fits descriptions of how Beethoven performed his own music.' --Boston Globe

Filmed in his seventieth year,this recital is proof that pianist Stephen Kovacevich is still very much in his prime. Performance **** Picture and Sound **** --BBC Music Magazine,Dec'10

If you need an illustration of masterly tone production on the piano,look no further. --Gramophone,Nov'10
