Pierre Boulez has been an exclusive artist with Deutsche Grammophon for over 20 years; his recording legacy with the label is immense. DG celebrate his 90th birthday with a 44-CD box set of his complete DG 20th century music recordings – an aspect of his work that lies at the heart of his achievement. ”The aim of music is not to express feelings but to express music. It is not a vessel into which the composer distills his soul drop by drop, but a labyrinth with no beginning and no end, full of new paths to discover, where mystery remains eternal.” – Pierre Boulez

Mitsuko Uchida has been a committed exponent of Schoenberg's Piano Concerto for over a decade now. It is a work which remains controversial in its adaptation of the serial method to an almost Brahmsian harmonic palette, wedded to a formal approach that takes up the integrated design, and textural richness, of Schoenberg's pre-atonal works. Certainly in terms of the balance between soloist and orchestra, this recording clarifies the often capricious interplay to a degree previously unheard on disc (and most likely in the concert hall too).Interpretatively, it combines Pollini's dynamism, without the hectoring touch that creeps into the Adagio's climactic passages, and Brendel's lucidity, avoiding the deadpan feeling that pervades his final Giocoso.

In La mer, he is among the master magicians: subtleties of nuance and timing (previously in short supply) now abound; here is playing of a wholly different order of grace and beauty, not the kind that lingers in passages in danger of becoming too exquisite to bear, nor the kind that parades the score's exoticism.

It is almost as chastening to remember that Le Marteau Sans Maître, one of the supreme achievements of 20th-century music, is now 50 years old as it is to realise that the man who composed it is past 80. Deutsche Grammophon celebrated Boulez's 80th birthday with a raft of releases that salute his unique contribution to music, as both conductor and composer. This is the fourth time Boulez has recorded Le Marteau since it was first performed in Baden Baden in 1955. The most recent, with Elisabeth Laurence as soloist for CBS, is itself now 20 years old, so a new recording of what has been Boulez's most influential masterpiece is overdue. Each version has been more expressive than the last, partly a reflection of Boulez's increasing flexibility as a conductor but also of the performers' increasing familiarity with the music. This latest one, with Hilary Summers as the rich-toned mezzo, relishes every particle of the settings of the three René Char poems about which the instrumental movements, with their deliberately non-western ensemble of flute, viola, guitar, tuned and untuned percussion, pivot and offer commentary.

Whatever Schoenberg may have meant to express ― lament, horror, nostalgia, anger, hopelessness, anticipation of triumph or defiance ― one thing is clear: this is one of the great piano concertos of the twentieth century.

Krystian Zimerman - Schubert Piano Sonatas D 959 & 960 (2017) [Official Digital Download 24/96]

The Polish pianist Krystian Zimerman brings his trademark lightness of touch and exquisite musical sensitivity to Schubert’s final two sonatas, written just months before the composer’s death in 1828 at the age of 31. Both of these undoubted masterpieces span the emotional spectrum, their dying composer reaching into the dark recesses of his soul one moment, before expressing his resignation to fate with music of radiance, tenderness, and beauty. Zimerman deftly negotiates Schubert’s internal conflicts in a recording of staggering depth and richness.
