Pianist Daniel Wayenberg: Who's got his discs?

Post by Lance » Fri Aug 12, 2005 11:31 pm

I've been seeking recordings by the French pianist, Daniel Wayenberg. French EMI issued (and deleted recently, to my regret) a 2-disc "Rarissime" budget-priced recording. You don't hear about the pianist too much, but he recorded an LP of Brahms music (which I saw in eBay). Nickson Records recently released his debut recording with Mitropoulos conducting the NYP (live 1953) of Rachmaninoff's Piano Concerto No. 2 (stunning though unusually "personal" performance by the pianist).

I have a number of recordings, some private and some commercial. This is what I have:
  • Brilliant 92219 [2 CDs] - "The Classical Clarinet" with de Graff, clarinetist.
  • Private 0117 - Rachmaninoff: Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini w/Ancerl/Toronto SO.
  • Mastertone 0451 - Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue, Three Preludes, etc. w/saxophone quartet.
  • Q-Disc 97014 - Ravel: Piano Concerto for Left-Hand w/Concertgebouw/Haitink.
  • Nickson 07200502 - Rachmaninoff: Piano Concerto No. 2 w/NYP, Mitropoulos.
  • EMI 69308 - Gershwin: Rhapsody in Blue; Concerto in F, G. Pretre, conducting.
I want to prepare a radio tribute to Mr. Wayenberg but need some of his other solo piano recordings. Can anybody help? If so, please contact me by private message.

Many thanks.

I'm surprised to read that Wayenbergh is a French pianist! He is Dutch, but lives (lived???) most of his life in Paris. The EMI Rarissime discs are still available in Europe (see Kelkoo or Amazon, or Fnac).
I have fond memories of him performing André Jolivet's pianoconcerto in Amsterdam (with the Concertgebouw Orchestra / Bernard Haitink!). He is a talented composer aswell. I witnessed the premiere performance of his "concerto pour 3 pianos et orchestre " and the Symphonie "Capella" (1973).
His performance of Gershwin's Rhapsody in blue is a classic.
