Fantasies


Chopin: Impromptus Fantaisie (Impromptu Fantasy) Op. 49 / Barcarolle, Berceuse

Chopin: Impromptus Fantaisie (Impromptu Fantasy) Op. 49 / Barcarolle, Berceuse Lowest new price: $29.95
Lowest used price: $2.69

Chopin's Impromptus have something of a reputation as "salon music," largely because the form itself seems to imply something improvised, transient, or insignificant. But when you play them like the greatest music in the world--which is exactly what Murray Perahia does--it's hard not to believe that the music actually is the greatest in the world, or in any event so fine as to make no difference. If other pianists treat them like pieces of fluff, that's their problem. The other two pieces are singletons, Chopin's sole effort in each genre. A "Berceuse" is simply a lullaby, and Chopin's is appropriately tranquil, while Barcarolle is a boat song, and this particular example is one of the composer's very finest works. --David Hurwitz

CD

Paderewski, the most famous pianist of his time, was also a serious composer who wrote a grand opera and a patriotic symphony. His Piano Concerto is an entertaining work in late-romantic style. It's not exactly a work of genius, but the charismatic, poetic, and virtuosic playing of Janina Fialkowska is enough to put it over the top. Fialkowska, a Canadian-born pianist, has recorded for RCA and CBC, but has never developed a major career. Her playing on this disc shows that she deserves one. The Polish Fantasy is a lot of fun, especially as Fialkowska plays it. The orchestra and conductor give her excellent support, and they also do well with the little-known concert overture. This disc may not be what we consider necessary music, but it provides enough enjoyment to justify its modest price. --Leslie Gerber

Baroque Music for Brass & Organ

Baroque Music for Brass & Organ Lowest new price: $10.50
Lowest used price: $2.99

Take a fine organist, a crack brass ensemble, bathe in wide-ranging, vivid sound, and you've got a recipe for an exciting disc. That's what Telarc has done in this recording of a live concert by the Empire Brass Quintet in effective arrangements of Baroque favorites and rarities. It may seem odd to hear a Handel Violin Sonata or a Telemann Trio Sonata played by a brass-organ combo, but it works thanks to clever arrangements and superb playing. A highlight here is the Largo of the Handel work, where marvelous horn and trombone solos enhance its beauties. And of course, such favorites as Jeremiah Clarke's Trumpet Voluntary and the Prince of Denmark's March join Campra's stately Rigaudon and other stirring processional pieces. The SACD version adds another level of air and bite, but the CD layer of this hybrid disc is demonstration quality too. --Dan Davis
