American
Read more pianist Murray Perahia is one of the most sought-after and cherished pianists of our time, performing in all of the major international music centers and with every leading orchestra. He is the Principal Guest Conductor of the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields, with whom he has toured as conductor and pianist throughout the United States, Europe, Japan and Southeast Asia. Mr. Perahia has won two Grammy Awards®, several Gramophone Awards and has a wide and varied discography.

Reviews of some of the original recordings that make up this set:

Grieg concerto
"Poetry and precision triumphantly fuse in the Grieg Concerto, where Perahia's fabulous technique and ravishing tone make this overplayed work sound quite invigorating. I particularly admire the effortlessly effected tempo relationships between sections, plus the welcome melodic emphasis with which he shapes the Finale's flashy runs and the first-movement cadenza's bass rumbles."

-- Jed Distler, ClassicsToday.com

Schumann Symphonic Etudes, Papillons
"[This CD] of Murray Perahia's Schumann present[s] well-established performances that have met with virtually universal critical acclaim... [In the Symphonic Etudes,] the five posthumous Etudes are placed after the main work, almost as an encore. Perahia treats them with great delicacy and intimacy and in the fifth of these posthumous Etudes his wonderfully translucent way with high treble sonorities is especially charming. Regarding piano technique, he has a greater range than Pollini, in that the fastest Etudes, such as Nos. 3 and 9, are impeccably articulated. Perahia's famous recording of Papillons should not be missed. His extraordinary control in changing from one mood to another in such small miniatures is something rare. Pianists so easily let Papillons slip by without ever managing to get into the mood of any of the pieces."

-- James Methuen-Campbell, Gramphone [3/1989]

Schubert Wanderer Fantasy
"The Wanderer Fantasy is one of Schubert's most striking architectural achievements, and Perahia's intellectually rewarding account of it offers a vivid portrayal of the music's constantly evolving thematic structure."

-- Gramophone

Bach English Suites
"...these gloriously played recordings of Bach’s First, Third, and Sixth English Suites are probably the most impressive I’ve ever heard. Everything I find fault with in Gould’s Bach is remedied by Perahia; and I mean everything. Perahia shines most consistently in the profound reverence with which he treats the sarabandes in all three suites. Where Gould always calls attention to himself, Perahia never does. In great contrast to Gould, Perahia uses lots of pedal, but he uses it very effectively. At times, I thought he may have over-relied on the sustaining pedal a little too much; but on re-listening, I realized that Perahia uses it to emphasize certain motifs or figurations that might get buried under the detail. And is there ever detail in the English Suites, especially in the preludes and the gigues! Perahia gives some of the courantes, especially in the First Suite, a soft-edged quality that makes them sound as though they have emerged in a kind of dreamy aural landscape. Much of his playing is the opposite of Gould’s spiky aggressiveness. The gigues are consistently buoyant and delightful. Though some listeners might accuse Perahia’s Bach of being soft-centered, his gentle caressing of the phrases creates an ethereally burnished sound. Is there another pianist around who plays Bach so beautifully? His sound is delicate and, at times, even sweet. Indeed, much the same thing can be said of Arthur Rubinstein’s Chopin, and yes, his Bach. Perahia’s pianism is the closest we have to Rubinstein’s affectionate urbanity. And there is a tradition that goes back to Paderewski and “beautiful” sound. We have certain pianists today, like Tamas Vasary, Adam Harasiewicz, and even Richard Goode who produce beautiful sound. Gould has so ruled the roost, even in death, that other approaches have had to elbow their way in.

If you like your Bach done with deep feeling, sensitivity, impeccable taste, and intelligence, these are for you. It seems to me that Perahia is emerging as the principal Bach performer (piano) of the day. He has, as Gould never could, left his ego at home. His performance of the Sarabande from the Third English Suite is alone worth the price of the disc. Highly recommended."

-- Patrick Meanor, FANFARE

Bach Goldberg Variations
I have no hesitation at all in acclaiming Murray Perahia's recording of the Goldberg Variations as the finest on piano since Glenn Gould's pioneering version of the 1950s. Both in its broad conception and individual details, it offers incontestable evidence of Perahia's penetrating musical intellect, sensitivity to emotional nuance, and exceptional technical gifts. A performance this rich and varied in expression deserves to be considered at much greater length than that of a simple record review, but perhaps a few general observations will suffice to indicate what an extraordinary listening experience this release represents.

First, the big picture: Perahia observes all the repeats, and his crisply detailed ornamentation the second time around is just one of many delights. The entire work takes a bit more than 73 minutes, which means that tempos run on the swift side. Indeed, if I had to choose one word to characterize this interpretation, it would be: "joyous". It swings. Unlike Rosalyn Tureck, for example, Perahia doesn't agonize over every note in a way that imposes on the work a portentous sameness from moment to moment, however fascinatingly considered the details. He's extremely careful to shape groups of variations to form expressive arches. The most impressive of these explores the gradual increase in tension from Variations 26 through 30. Note how Perahia uses the piano's dynamic range to give the 28th variation, with its long ornamental trills, an unusually quiet delicacy (on harpsichord this can sound like the sewing machine from hell), followed by a natural intensification through his bold treatment of the rapidly alternating chords of Variation 29, and culminating, with an effortless sense of climax, in the contrapuntal fullness of the ensuing Quodlibet. You might think this sort of thing obvious, but it's amazing how in many performances the final variation comes as an anti-climax after the devastating brilliance of the two previous ones. Not here!

The finer details fit naturally into this larger scheme. Perahia's isn't as obsessively linear a performance as Gould's, and even though he isn't quite as firmly focused on the bass line, he never sacrifices clarity for the sake of pianistic effect. On the other hand, he's perfectly willing to employ pianistic effect for the sake of enhancing clarity, both expressively and contrapuntally. The 23rd variation, for example, seems to foreshadow Prokofiev, its witty scales running up and down the keyboard, tossed off as a humorous series of hiccups and parentheses. In the following canon at the octave--difficult to project clearly owing to the sameness of the parts--Perahia magically conveys not just the identity of the variation as a canon, but also its pastoral character and lilting rhythm. The melody, too, has never before sounded so similar to Bach's "Jesu, Joy of Man's Desiring". Here's one of those rare moments that, when you hear it, sounds exactly right, and the softer volume at the repeats only enhances the music's intimacy and grace. Finally, when we reach the great 25th variation, one of the saddest pieces in all of Bach, the right hand takes center stage, singing this harmonically anguished, florid lament with a touchingly fluid legato. The left hand, in contrast, offers the most sensitive harmonic support, clearly subordinate in a manner all but impossible on the harpsichord.

Any random selection of variations will reveal similar interpretive insights, though you should not get the impression from this paean of pianistic praise (excuse the alliteration: too many Batman reruns lately) that I dislike the sound of this music on the harpsichord. On the contrary, I tend to prefer the way the older instrument lends the work sharper contours and a unique, steely brilliance. What makes Perahia so special, though, is his masterful application of the piano's tone colors and dynamic contrasts to Bach's music in a way that is at once personal and totally convincing. Artists as individually outstanding as Gould, Tureck, Koroliov, and Schiff have all found solutions that are equally valid, but none, I think, have ever made the music sound so naturally, joyously at home on the modern piano as has Perahia. With gorgeously rich recorded sound fully worthy of the interpretation, this Goldberg Variations easily joins my short list of recommendations on any instrument. Perahia has given us a recording for the ages, no doubt about it.

Bach Concertos
After Murray Perahia's much lauded solo performances of Bach's English Suites and Goldberg Variations, Sony offers his first recording of keyboard concertos with orchestral accompaniment. As with his cycle of Mozart concertos, Perahia conducts from the keyboard, allowing him complete artistic control--and it works wonderfully here, arguably better than it did in the Mozart. You'll be struck by Perahia's ability to heighten the drama, nobility, and sheer joy of Bach's music through the unity he elicits between soloist and ensemble.

A particularly telling example of this occurs early on in the final movement of the Concerto No. 1 BWV 1052, where Perahia and the Academy of St. Martin in the Fields' continuous interweaving figures vividly animate the music. Never shy when it comes to embellishment, Perahia seizes every opportunity. In harmonious juxtaposition, the ASMF accents each of his final downbeats with what seems to be just the right response. Never is there any sense of disparity (as with Gould/Bernstein or Rousset/Hogwood) or worse, excessive homogenity (Schiff/COE).

In this sense, the only other recording of these pieces that compares would be the Trevor Pinnock cycle with The English Concert. Regardless of the piano-harpsichord/original-instrument-modern-instrument differences between the two, both Pinnock and Perahia bring a similar unified dash, fluidity, and integration to their respective readings. Sony's sound is very good. Perahia's Steinway is somewhat up-front, but not overly so. The handsome, well designed booklet includes informative, trilingual notes by George Stauffer. Perahia fans need not hesitate. Others, particularly those who enjoyed Perahia's brilliant take on Bach's Goldberg Variations, would do well to take a chance on this recording as well. Highly recommended!

--John Greene, ClassicsToday.com

Mozart Piano Concertos
"The Perahia cycle is a remarkable achievement; in terms of poetic insight and musical spontaneity the performances are in a class of their own. There is a wonderful singing line and spirituality."

-- The Penguin Guide to Compact Discs & DVDs, 2005/06 Edition

Beethoven Sonatas no 7 & 23
I continue to find the whole of Perahia's recording stimulating and fresh. I said in my first review that the freshness of a still quite youthful player is there. With never a hint of gratuitous agitation, the sense of an invigorating energy being released in the act of performance comes across strongly; and I'm sure Beethoven would have loved it. As Perahia with the wind his sails carries you along—in the finale of the Appassionata above all—his virtuosity is special, electrifying in effect, transcendental, brilliantly illuminating. The delightful thing about him is that it's all done with such ease and naturalness of expression. When he records the Appassionata again he will have to play it differently. He could hardly play it better than he does here.

 Great compilation August 19, 2014 By Hugues Dionne (Bois-des-Filion, QC) See All My Reviews "All the recordings are very good and the sound quality is great. Many hours of great music played close to perfection with the proper 'dose' of emotion. Nice book inside. Don't hesitate if you are looking for a wide range of piano music in one box..." Report Abuse
