Description du produit
Emil Gilels nannte Vladimir Sofronitzky 'den größten Pianisten der Welt'. Als er und Richter sich trafen erklärte Sofronitzky 'Du bist ein Genie!'. 'Du bist ein Gott' kam als Antwort zurück. Er bevorzugte stehts nur Auftritte in großen Städten und generell Live-Auftritte gegenüber Studioeinspielungen, da ihm hier die direkte Meinung des Puplikums fehlte. Diese Edition beinhaltet nun Live-Aufnahmen, welche im Jahre 1946 und 1960 augezeichnet wurden. Sofranitzky selbst lebte von 1901 bis 1961. Mit hohem Maß an technischer Qualität und Leidenschaft wurden die Aufnahmen anspruchsvoll Remastered. Inklusive der begehrten Skriabin Aufnahmen. Das 9 CD Set enthält auch ein umfangreiches Booklet mit Anmerkung und Informationen seines Schaffens. Inklusive, für dieses Set, beinhaltet es ebenfalls eine persönlich geschriebene Widmung für seine Tochter Viviana.

Much of the material is available elsewhere, but much of it is not and the material that is available is often difficult to find, or more expensive that this entire set.
the real highlight of this disc are the Chopin Preludes. I did not have these played by Sofronitsky[who is one of the finest Chopin pianists of his generation-see his Mazurkas[Andante]. This set is one of the finest sets I have heard which is saying a lot considering the crowded field. Gramophon magazine compared them to Cortot's, which I scoffed at at first, but after listening, I must agree.
The D960 is also very good from 1956, much better and better sounding than his boring 1960 recording. The Mendelssohn Variations Ser. is also phenomenal, as are the Rach selections, the Prokofiev, and of course, the Scriabin. Sofronitsky might be the greatest Scriabin pianist to have ever lived and is surely one of the greatest russian pianists of the recorded era-comparable even to Richter. The Beethoven Sonata op28 was another new item for me, and it is an interesting performance considering Sofr had never left Russia and had never heard a western interpration, only the evolution of Russian thought on the mad master. The Schubert Wanderer Fant was also new to my collection, a sensational performance.
The first disc I ever had of Sofr was a sensational disc of SchubertLiszt Transcriptions, some of which are included here and others which are new to cd. The Carnaval is also new to cd, different from the Urania release.
To Summerize, this is the most valuable and important release yet from Brilliant Classics. Hopefully they will have a second volume containing Sofrontiszky legendary Fantasy in C op17, Kreisleriana, Liszt Sonata, along with the more easily obtainable Appasionata and op111.
My guess is that buying this box set, you'll risk becoming addicted with the music-making, and find yourself buying more anyhow. So, a little something on the performances included here:
First of all, if Sofronitsky ever recorded a heavy-handed/laboured Schubert D.960, then it's this 1956 studio recording (without first-movement exposition repeat), even if it's not bad at all, and certainly comes in quite good sound. But: the 1960 live performance (including first-movement exposition repeat) is really one of the finest the piece has ever got (seriously, I could even point you to classical web sites/blogs where it's voted #1) - it's a mystery to me why anyone would call it "boring" (if someone had said the same about the studio recording included here, I'd have shrugged that off).
The 1950 Schumann studio Carnaval here is is less volatile, thrilling and fun than the 1959 live performance (and it's debatable which includes more "banging"), more like other pianists' recordings, if not more mainstream in conception, and as such replaceable (and indeed, this box set would have been even better, had Sofronitsky's 1959 Symphonic Etudes been included instead). Having said that, it's not bad, but it won't prepare anyone for what Sofronitsky was like live.
The 1953 Beethoven Pastoral Sonata (now this IS a live performance minus applause - Brilliant Classics' discographic informations are really a bit haphazard) deserves being listened to carefully: it's really a forerunner to great modern interpretations such as Sokolov's (live in Paris, 2002), as odd as it must have sounded to non-Russian contemporaries when held against e.g. Schnabel's famous recording.
Chopin and Scriabin were Sofronitsky's favourite composers, and it shows. While the 1946 studio recording of Scriabin's 3rd Sonata may "only" be his fourth best (1958 live in Moscow, 1958 studio and 1952 live in Leningrad spring to mind), that probably still makes it the fourth best ever - it's that good! Much (but not all) of the 2 February 1960 Scriabin recital in Moscow is included here, where Sofronitsky played a virtual plethora of short pieces (including some of the finest Scriabin preludes on record), his finest performance of the 10th Sonata, and a very good 9th (truly great alternatives include a studio and a live one from 1958 - my favourites along with Horowitz's 1965 Carnegie Hall performance). The 1960 Andante from the 2nd Sonata is as heart-wrenching as it gets (but Brilliant Classics apparently didn't have access to that rare complete recording of the 2nd Sonata). Enough I hope to realise one really needs/wants to own all of Sofronitsky's Scriabin.
As to Chopin, a lot of Sofronitsky's best is NOT included in this box set (the Barcarolle, the 3rd Impromptu, the Op. 27 No. 1 Nocturne, the 1st Polonaise, a wonderful selection of Mazurkas and Waltzes recorded in 1960), but the famous selection of 10 Mazurkas and complete 24 Preludes from the legendary 1949 recital are here. Whether the latter do indeed rival Cortot, I'll leave to others to decide.
Not a very complete, let alone in-depth presentation of Sofronitsky's Scriabin and Chopin, then, but certainly a worthy introduction.
There are some otherwise difficult to find items in this collection, Schubert's Wanderer Fantasy and Sonata D.784 - oddly these seem directed at Sofronitsky completists rather than beginners (whom this box set will really suit most), and although not without interest (nothing Sofronitsky ever played is), one will find or already own more convincing recordings of either.
Also, this set includes some reference recordings of Schubert~Liszt Song Transcriptions (one will find more of those elsewhere), Borodin's Petite Suite and Prokofiev's Tales of an Old Grandmother. Great stuff!
Finally, a word on the recordings NOT included here: obviously, the 1960 D.960 would have been a better choice, and fans will miss what many consider Sofronitsky's greatest non-Scriabin performance, his 1959 Schumann Etudes Symphoniques. Other absent favourites include the live Schumann Sonata No. 1, some studio and live Schubert Impromptus; many fans will also miss Sofronitsky's Schumann Fantasy and Liszt Sonata and Gnomenreigen. Of course, there would always be more Chopin (see above) and Scriabin (e.g. sonata recordings, the Fantaisie Op. 28, Vers la Flamme etc.).
