Most widely held works by Stephen Kovacevich
Diabelli variations by Ludwig van Beethoven( )

24 editions published between 1968 and 2014 in 4 languages and held by 660 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Acknowledged as one of the leading pianists of his generation, an eminent interpreter of the German repertoire, Helmchen explores various periods and composers (including Messiaen!). Before the complete concertos, planned for 2020, he tackles the Diabelli Variations, 'a climax in the life of a pianist'. He sees these variations as 'a voyage to the very heart of the infinity of human feelings and moods, by turns profound, philosophical, satirical'. He regards the cycle as a visionary work that heralds future developments in music, containing the first stirrings of twentieth-century minimalism, atonality and abstraction. This recording is the end result of a long personal association and numerous concerts; a powerful version in which each variation emerges as a masterpiece in its own right

Piano concertos by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

7 editions published between 1971 and 2001 in 4 languages and held by 531 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Die dritte SACD dieser Serie bringt neben dem Konzert Nr. 17, einem der wenigen Klavierkonzerte, die Mozart für sich selbst als Solisten schrieb, auch ein sehr bekanntes: Das Konzert Nr. 26, genannt das "Krönungskonzert". Angeblich aufgeführt bei der Krönung Kaiser Leopold II. in Frankfurt im Oktober 1790, daher der Name. Ein Irrtum: Mozart hat das heute wegen seiner melodischen Schönheit und rokokohaften Leichtigkeit so beliebte Konzert zwar in Frankfurt gespielt, allerdings eine Woche nach der Krönung, ohne Teil der Feierlichkeiten zu sein, und es wurde auch nicht für diesen Anlass komponiert, sondern schon ein Jahr früher in Wien für seine Schülerin Barbara Ployer, die es auch uraufführte. "Described in International Record Review as 'an absolutely instinctive Mozartian, with fleet fingerwork to match any, and with melodic playing of consummate beauty', Ronald Brautigam returns with the third instalment in his series of Mozart's piano concertos. As on the two previous discs, he is joined by the period band Die Kölner Akademie conducted by Michael Alexander Willens, forming a partnership described on website klassik-heute.de as 'Mozart interpreters of the first order'" (arkivmusic.com)

Horn concertos nos. 1-4 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

2 editions published in 2007 and held by 341 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Auch wenn von einem Mangel an Referenzaufnahmen der Hornkonzerte Mozarts nicht die Rede sein kann, so ist die vorliegende Einspielung mit der Academy of St. Martin in the Fields mit dem Solisten Timothy Brown doch eine der besten. Die Wandlungsfähigkeit seines Tons, der mal säuselnd, mal schmetternd daherkommt, und die beispiellose Spiel- und Stilpartnerschaft mit dem Orchester haben neue Maßstäbe gesetzt. Wichtige Werke in "brillanter" (Klassik heute 12/99) Interpretation, die in keiner Bibliothek fehlen sollten. (pr)
