Extractions: - Sergei Vasilyevich Rachmaninov There have been so many couplings of these concertos done in recent years, and yet it is not often that we get a woman pianist at the keyboard. If I am not mistaken the last lady pianist to do so was Zilberstein on DG (439 930-2). Noriko Ogawa's other discs in her discography have consisted of Takemitsu piano music (BIS 805) and Mussorgsky's Pictures at an Exhibition (BIS 905 - to be reviewed soon), which has been received warmly and widely by her peers and reviewers alike. Noriko Ogawa came to prominence when she walked away with the Third Prize in the prestigious Leeds Competition of 1987 and has since played with the leading orchestras of Europe. This puts her in the same echelons as pianists like Radu Lupu and Murray Perahia. I had the honour of listening to her "live" rendition of the Emperor Concerto by Beethoven last year with the Singapore Symphony Orchestra ( Click here for review ) and I must say that it was one of the most exhilarating renditions I have heard in a long time. She has this ability to play with a certain sense of controlled recklessness which makes her interesting to hear "live".
Extractions: [74'00"] full-price by Johann D'Souza Modest-ly speaking, Mussorgsky was not really known to be an experienced musician. However we are told that he was a competent pianist, having taught himself with little instruction from Balakirev, both members of The Five. (I have full respect for pianist-composers - because they write the most difficult pieces as well as the most sublime pieces for the piano). Mussorgsky did not really compose a wide selection of pieces in his short life of 42 years, but many of his works are dearly remembered. Mussorgsky (right, painted in his final year by Ilya Repin) suffered from psychological problems and alcoholism. It is surprising, but I am now in full belief that you have to be mentally unstable, depressed, and/or turbulent in order to compose works of great inspiration. Eg. Tchaikovsky's Symphony No.6 and Rachmaninov's Piano Concerto No.2
