Anna Vinnitskaya has now joined Alpha Classics. Her first recording for the label is devoted to one of her repertories of choice: the concertos of Shostakovich.'When I performed the Second Piano Concerto for the first time at the age of eleven, his music seemed very optimistic to me. Only later did I understand everything else that is concealed behind the "façade" of Shostakovich's music.'[The Russian pianist reveals two facets of the composer's music on this disc by juxtaposing the First Piano Concerto in C minor op. 35, an 'insolent' composition with a kaleidoscope of atmospheres and stylistic registers (Russian Romanticism, American jazz, neoclassicism) that constantly surprise the listener, and the more traditional Concerto in F major, which radiates youthful high spirits.] A pupil of Sergey Ossipenko at the Serge Rachmaninoff Conservatory, then of the great Evgeni Koroliov at the Musikhochschule in Hamburg, Anna Vinnitskaya won the Leonard Bernstein Prize, but it was her First Prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition in Brussels in 2007 that launched her career. For this recording, Anna Vinnitskaya is surrounded by partners of the front rank: the famous Kremerata Baltica, regarded as one of the most creative ensembles on today's musical scene, and the prestigious wind players of the Staatskapelle Dresden

War requiem by Benjamin Britten( )

14 editions published between 1996 and 2007 in 4 languages and held by 319 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Just because the definitive recording of Britten's War Requiem has already been made by Britten himself is no reason not to keep recording it. For one thing, the work is simply too affecting and too important to ignore. And for another, the work is too deep and too varied to be encompassed by only one recording, even one so superlative and so sympathetic as the composer's own. Thus, one can have in principle no objections to this live 2007 recording led by Helmuth Rilling. After all, the stalwart German conductor is a highly skilled and deeply experienced choral director who clearly knows his way around monumental scores: his recordings of Bach's Passions are proof of that. But though this is a fine performance with many points to recommend it, it is not a great performance. Rilling does an outstanding job of guiding his forces through the work and a more than adequate job of aiming them toward the work's meaning. But one wants more than "more than adequate" in the War Requiem, and in Rilling's hands, the big moments and its intimate moments fail to strike as profoundly as they ought. The soloists are a mixed lot. Tenor James Taylor and baritone Christian Gerhaher have strong and steady voices, but though soprano Annette Dasch has a lovely voice, she tends to get a bit wobbly above the staff. The chorus of the Festivalensemble Stuttgart and the Aurelius S?ngerknaben are both excellent and they do wonders with the work's huge choruses. But the orchestra of the Festivalensemble, while colorful, does not have quite enough size and weight to bring off the big climaxes. H?nssler's super audio sound is definitely a plus -- the sheer size of the sound is amazing -- but not all that much of an improvement over Decca's fabulous stereo sound for Britten. In sum, then, those who don't know the War Requiem are directed toward Britten's recording, while those who do might consider Rilling's as a third or fourth choice after Hickox's or Shaw's.
