Description

Shadows of Silence by Leif Ove Andsnes is a sensually beautiful recording of contemporary piano music mixing solo and concerted works. Andsnes' superb program illuminates what might be called the post-Impressionist strain of post-Modernist music. The two big works here, Witold Lutoslawski and Marc-Andr? Dalbavie's virtuosic and visionary piano concertos, alternate with three luminously poetic solo pieces: Bent Sorensen's Lullabies and Shadows of Silence at either end of the disc with selections from Gy?rgy Kurt?g's Games in the center. As he has for composers from Grieg to Jan?cek, Andsnes consistently delivers brilliantly conceived, powerfully executed performances, deploying his nuanced tone and formidable technique to make the case for every work here both separately and together, that is, with each piece satisfying in itself while at the same time creating a larger aesthetic whole out of the dramatic sequence. Franz Welser-M?st elicits eloquent accompaniments from the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks and EMI provides crisp, deep and uncannily immediate sound. Though not for listeners who believe music history ended in 1911, anyone interested in contemporary music should by all means try this disc. James Leonard, All Music Guide
