Denis Matsuev live in Brussels Sept.,2019

Post by Rach3 » Mon Oct 07, 2019 10:06 am

Enregistré à Bruxelles, ce 28 septembre 2019, au Studio 4 de Flagey.

Tchaikovsky, Les Saisons, op. 37a
Rachmaninov, des Études-Tableaux, op. 39 : n° 2 & 6
Tchaikovsky, des 18 Pièces pour piano, op. 72 : n° 5 Méditation
Liszt, Sonate pour piano en si mineur, S. 178

Bis:
Anatoly Liadov - La boite à musique, op. 32
Sibelius - Etude n°2, op. 76
Scriabine - Etude opus 8 nr 12
Grieg - « Dans l'antre du roi de la montagne », extrait de Peer Gynt, op. 23

Denis Matsuev, piano.

An absolutely astonishing bravura display, and live ?! But….
Perhaps Matsuev believes the method or the medium is the message, a live piano recital not to be akin to a seance ?

I, too, am a follower of Matsuev. A very fine pianist and have all his recordings thus far. The pianist I am waiting for more from is Arcadi Volodos (who doesn't record often enough to suit me) AND Mark Viner, the latter who is barnstorming the piano scene!

For some reason this musician often gets a 'bad press'. Many people think he's too close to Putin, like Gergiev. But how has this anything to do with either musician's talent? From what I've seen Matsuev has a good record of mentoring young pianists like Alexander Malofeev - just to name one.

I have heard that, too, especially from other fine Russian pianists who seem to have little regard for Matsuev. In this case, we must just consider the talent.

Just finished listening. A very fine recital, including a stunning Liszt B minor Sonata, and some very fine Rachmaninoff. There were some highly sensitive moments in the Tchaikovsky pieces, which can be played as empty fluff: not so here! Very enthusiastic audience response, btw. I also learned online that Matsuyev is planning a Carnegie Hall recital on October 20th. Tickets are still available for those who might wish to attend.

My pet peeve about the announcer is that he kept pronouncing the name as it's spelled in English rather than the Russian spelling, which is pronounced correctly as "Matsuyeff." Oh well, can't have everything. A worthy listen, including the Balakirev filler at the end, conducted by Svetlanov. Thanks for posting this! :)
