Chopin's Piano Fireworks

When you hear Chopin's etudes, you can tell that he was a virtuosic pianist himself, and intimately familiar with the piano.  Etudes are short but challenging studies meant to stretch the pianist's technical boundaries and develop his technique. But Chopin's etudes challenged not only his own playing ability, but also his compositional ingenuity. Pianist Cecile Licad performs Chopin's 12 Etudes, Op. 10.

Recorded live in the Tapestry Room of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston.

This week's program focuses again on Schubert, and his gift for a singing melody. In the first piece, the lyrical melody in the pianist's right hand is a tune that could easily be the vocal line of one of Schubert's songs. This idea, of a melodic line supported by an evocative piano accompaniment, figures prominently in Schubert's songs, including the other piece on the program: Winterreise. Pianist Seymour Lipkin, pianist Jeremy Denk, and baritone Randall Scarlata perform Schubert's and Schubert's

This week's program features two chamber music pieces, one with voice and one without, both written late in Schubert's life, and both inspired by his love of song. "The Shepherd on the Rock" is longer than most of Schubert's 600 songs, at about fifteen minutes, and in many ways is more like a chamber music piece than a song. The string quartet "Death and the Maiden" uses a song as inspiration for an entirely instrumental work. Musicians from Marlboro (soprano Hyunah Yu, clarinetist Alexander Fiterstein, pianist Gilbert Kalish) and the Borromeo String Quartet perform Schubert's Der Hirt auf dem Felsen ("The Shepherd on the Rock") for voice, clarinet and piano, D. 965 (Op. 129) and Schubert's String Quartet No. 14 in D minor ("Death and the Maiden"), D. 810.

Recorded live in the Tapestry Room of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, Boston.
