Joseph Moog, Young Artist of the Year 2015 by Gramophone Magazine: http://www.gramophone.co.uk...
Leopold Godowsky (1870-1938)
The Swan (Saint-Saëns)
Our first encounter with the young German pianist took place three years ago; during the Sommets Musicaux de Gstaad. Winner of the "Marguerite Dütschler Prize"; he subsequently recorded two magnificent Liszt concerts with the Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz and Ari Rasilainen (Claves CD 50-2707).
Today he is back with a recital programme centered around the art of transcription -- very much in fashion during the 19th and early 20th century. "Metamorphoses" (as it is called) includes pages from Liszt; Friedman; Moszkowski as well as the famous Leopold Godowsky; master of the art. Pages in which virtuosity rivals with delicate sounds and colours; and in which we alternately meet Bellini's Norma; Saint-Saëns' Cygne; Bizet's Carmen or even Wagner's Tannhäuser. A joint production with the Südwestrundfunk Ludwigshafen studio and a presentation text by Etienne Barillier; in which the writer questions the very essence of these pages -- "transcription or ré-création?"http://www.claves.ch
