This is the second CD Ivo Perelman recorded with Karl Berger. However, on the first CD ( CD LR 712 - Reverie) Karl played piano while this time he played vibraphone. This was the first time ever that Ivo played with vibraphone. Both albums are very different because of the nature of the instruments. Playing with vibraphone opened the door for Ivo to show his kinder, gentler side. According to Ivo, Karl happened to be more 'European,' more romantic.
Marx è l'«inventore del sintomo». Accostando la nozione di sintomo alla teoria del plusvalore, Lacan pone la pulsione e i suoi destini sul versante dei processi descritti nel Capitale. Per la psicoanalisi, metafora e ripetizione sono i due aspetti in cui il sintomo si presenta. La prima è legata all'emergere di un senso nascosto ma decifrabile, la seconda insiste su di un godimento impossibile ed opaco.
While Ivo Pogorelich established his reputation performing mainly Romantic repertoire, his few forays into the Baroque reveal him to be an equally engaging- if not eccentric musician here as well. In quicker movements, such as the opening Preludes of the English Suites for instance Pogorelich's rhythmic control and contrapuntal clarity are simply amazing. Slower movements likewise are handled with remarkable intensity and delicacy. Pogorelich's performances of four Scarlatti sonatas concluding the program as well are wonderfully animated and knowing.
