The nocturnes by Frédéric Chopin( Recording )

25 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in 6 languages and held by 539 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A graceful and charismatic performer, Fliter is known for her effortless technique and thoughtful, sensitive music-making; every performance is deeply personal and full of freshness and poetry, perfect for exploring Chopin's masterful Nocturnes. Chopin composed his Nocturnes throughout his creative life and succeeded in both elevating and popularizing the form. His inspirational and original style, evident from even his early works, grew and matured to create an epic collection of gorgeously melodic piano music. Fliter included a tantalizing taster of this new album on her Preludes recording, adding Nocturnes Op. 9 No. 3 and Op. 27 No. 2 to round off the performance, which had several critics hungry for more. Her Preludes album was named 'Recording of the Month' by Gramophone, which also named it among the top 10 Chopin performances ever recorded. On this new recital Fliter delights us with characteristically insightful interpretations which showcase both the sensitivity of her playing and the poetry of the composer's music

Petrouchka by Igor Stravinsky( )

14 editions published between 1972 and 1995 in 4 languages and held by 410 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Für Serge Diaghilews Ballets Russes schrieb Strawinski einige Ballette über russisch-märchenhafte Stoffe. Der Feuervogel wurde 1910 zum ersten großen Erfolg Strawinskis. Die ursprünglich für 100-köpfiges Orchester gesetzte, impressionistisch gefärbte Partitur wurde 1919 noch für mittelgroßes Orchester uminstrumentiert, der man heute den Vorzug gibt. Sie ist auch auf der vorliegenden CD eingespielt. Auch den aufwendigen Orchestersatz des Balletts Petruschka von 1911 hat Strawinski 1947 umgearbeitet und vereinfacht. Die Bedeutung des Rhythmischen kommt bei beiden Werken in der geänderten Fassung viel deutlicher zur Geltung. Das kurze Scherzo à la russe ergänzt diese Aufnahme mit dem Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra unter Paavo Järvi, die in jeder Hinsicht "outstanding" (Gramophone 5/03) ist und einen hervorragenden Einblick in die Ballettmusiken Strawinskis gibt
