Tah 719 - Inédits Youra Guller III


L. van Beethoven: Concerto pour piano n° 4, op. 58
F. Chopin: Concerto pour piano n° 2 en fa mineur, op. 21
(Orchestre National de France, direction D.E. Inghelbrecht) - Enregistrements des 15.V.1958 (Beethoven) et 21.VI.1959 (Chopin)

Après deux CD (Tah 630 et 650), qui connurent un grand succès, Tahra poursuit la publication d’enregistrements inédits de la grande pianiste française Youra Guller : le 4e Concerto de Beethoven et le 2nd concerto de Chopin – deux de ses « spécialités » - lors de concerts captés à Paris en 1958-9 sous la direction de D. Inghelbrecht à la tête de l’Orchestre National de France.

Ce qu'en dit la presse
The Chopin Concerto (21 June 1959) seems to wait for the Larghetto to reveal the pliant mysteries Guller could impart to the melodic line, the ornaments appearing to dissipate into interstellar space. No wonder Martha Argerich insisted Guller return to the recording studios! The flourishes and bold fioritura may imply the school of Isidor Philipp and Alfred Cortot, but her poetry has its unique voice and sculpting. The dark interlude in the nocturnal Larghetto becomes a mighty introspection, with the orchestra's supplying a sounding voice for melancholy ruminations on mortality. The lithe mazurka that constitutes the Allegro vivace brings crisp fire to the concert platform, with Guller's seeming to relish the roulades and shifting metrics that blend with the maverick woodwind or stormy string line that accompanies the eminently vocal execution of the keyboard. The col legno strings delicately ply their trade under a declamatory Guller who maneuvers rubato and inflections of touch with a suave assurance of style.
Highly recommended as a recording of special merit.
