About the author


  1. Hamelin's CD, of course, is coupled with the Barber Sonata. How do the performances differ? Well, for starters, Aimard includes the optional tiny viola part at the end of the 'Emerson' movement (played by viola superstar, Tabea Zimmermann) and the flute part in /5(15).
  2. This Hyperion recording is actually Marc-André Hamelin's second traversal through Ives' Concord Sonata; his initial venture being among the first of his commercial recordings, made back in for New World Records. Back in the days of LPs, you were lucky to get two new "Concords" in the course of a decade; Hamelin's was at least the third new recording of the sonata in /
  3. Hamelin's chosen discmate is unexpected, as it's difficult to imagine a style further removed from Ives's than Samuel Barber's. Yet the pianist's passionate intensity links these two disparate sonatas, and Hamelin's blend of lucidity and fervor is just as successful in Barber's immensely difficult work; indeed, this is the first recording to challenge the supremacy of Vladimir Horowitz's classic quixanjeffbabocomp.tilnamistnebenonfwebnistgardturrela.co: $
  4. Charles Ives's massive Concord Sonata has been well served on disc Marc-André Hamelin consistently faster than his rivals whenever a speeding-up is indicated, but always maintains crispness of rhythm and an almost miraculously clear layering of textures; and the poetry of the slower passages is intensified by the heightened contrast.
  5. What a fine reading of dedication and imaginative freedom Hamelin gives the Concord Sonata! Really, he gives you a perfect glimpse into the mind of Ives, the most authentic voice of musical transendentalism -- more than enough feel for the impetus and drive, majesty and power, profound wonder and uncannily moving expression, contrasting harmonics and intensely poetic inward 4/5(6).
  6. Reference Recording: Ives & Barber Piano Sonatas from Hamelin Review by: David Hurwitz Marc-André Hamelin recorded what for many listeners remains the reference recording of the Concord Sonata (New World), and this newer recording does not efface memories of .

  8. This is the pianist’s second recording of the Ives ‘Concord Sonata’, a piece he has played for over twenty years in performances that have often been regarded as definitive. As his thoughts on this landmark work matured, Marc became very keen to revisit the work in the studio in this 50th anniversary year of Ives’s death. p>The Barber is an apt if unusual coupling.
