Recent Gavrylyuk recital

Post by Rach3 » Thu Nov 01, 2018 12:01 pm

Alexander Gavrylyuk, live Oct. 12, 2018, TivoliVredenburg :

Mozart, Sonata K.330
Chopin, Ballade # 2
Liszt, “Dante” Sonata
Rachmaninoff, 3 Preludes ( Op.23, Nos. 10 and 5 ; Op.32, No.12 )
Prokofieff, Sonata # 7

Some of his earlier playing I’ve heard put me off as over the top, technique-driven, and although he comes close here a couple times, glad I heard this recital where he is on very good “ behavior “ , impressive, throughout , especially the Liszt ( which on most days I prefer to hear rather than composer’s B minor Sonata ).

The Liszt Dante Sonata was indeed well-done, and surprisingly so since I found the Mozart and Chopin a bit too restrained for my taste. The Rachmaninoff was well-done, but unexceptional. I'll listen to the Prokofiev tomorrow. Thanks, Rach3, for sharing this. It's a good recital, in spite of my nit-picking. :D

One of his better earlier efforts, a video from the 2005 Rubinstein Competition, Bach's "Italian" Concerto:

Finally got to listen to the Prokofiev VII. It's not the best I've heard (that would be Richter or Sokolov) but it is very good, if not quite as inspired as his Liszt.

All-in-all, this was a good recital, with the Liszt and Prokofiev showing where his heart is. Gavrylyuk needs to understand that Mozart and Chopin, while less challenging than Liszt, deserve to be played with depth of feeling, instead of being set-up pieces for the more virtuoso Liszt, which was the highlight of the program for me. I'll try the Bach tomorrow, as I'm absorbed in Chopin's Nocturnes by Magaloff right now...... :)

Agreed. Also agree about Sokolov's amazing, sui generis 7th. However, as to just the Andante mov. alone, I still find Horowitz hard to beat : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bojpZYm6s9I
