By DAVID BRYSON TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 8 Dec. 2003
Format: Audio CD
The sound at the start is simply terrific. At first I couldn’t remember such an impact from the opening bars of any piano piece since I heard Serkin in the Hammerklavier more than 30 years ago, and that was a live performance. The mood stayed with me through the rest of the sonata. Everything was not only right, but outstandingly right. The alternations of blazing declamation and hushed awe and unease in the first movement were balanced perfectly. The flowing lyricism of the second movement built up with just the right intensity to its climax and relapsed again as it ideally should. The swagger in the third movement was effortless and in the right sense arrogant. The Ruckblick was pensive, anxious and resigned. The finale’s wide tonal contrasts were handled with an effortless command, and from first to last the monstrous technical demands of the work were met with an Olympian near-disdain.
The A minor intermezzo from the op 76 set was next, and I was struck again by the natural instinct this player has for this composer, as I had been when I heard him in the op 116 set on a disc he had done 10 years or more previously. I remembered comparing his accounts with those of Katchen in his great omnibus Brahms set, and I remembered on balance rating Kissin better. This prompted me to remind myself how Katchen handled the sonata, and that was when I got something of a shock. The recorded sound Katchen was given was good in its time, but not even distantly comparable to Kissin’s with its tremendous resonant low registers. All the same, it was quite good enough for me to realise that Katchen’s despatch of the opening bars, and indeed of the whole first movement, was every bit as virtuosic and commanding as Kissin’s.
