Extractions: Admission free. Reservations required. The Diabelli Variations This opus, that Alfred Brendel has described as, "The greatest of all piano works," might justifiably be considered an afterthought of Beethoven's. According to most accounts, in 1819 Anton Diabelli, a composer and prominent music publisher, sent a copy of a waltz theme he had just written to 50 composers, requesting that each of them write one variation on the theme for a composite set. He intended to publish this set and to use the profits from sales to benefit orphans and widows of the Napoleonic Wars, but he probably also wanted to promote his new publishing firm. Beethoven was one of the recipients of the theme, but he is said to have refused to participate in the project, referring to the waltz as a "cobbler's patch," or, by some accounts, "trash." The composite set was indeed published, but without a contribution from Beethoven. Nevertheless, the theme must have eventually grabbed his attention, because by 1820, in a letter to one Peter Joseph Simrock, of the Bonn publishing house, Beethoven refers to his work on the variations as, "grand variations on a German waltz."

Extractions: Phoenix USA PHCD143 Total time: 70:30 Summary for the Busy Executive : Winning. This disc brings together piano music from 20th-century Italian-American composers largely ignored. Although they all had performances of their works and commissions at least some time in their careers, these men came under a cloud of indifference. To a great extent, American music passed them by. I would also contend that while their talents were true, they were minor (excepting Flagello), and for some reason, people don't want to spend time with anything less than the absolute bona fide best. It's a version of the Beethoven's Ninth Syndrome. The problem is that, taking the attitude to its extreme, you wind up listening to just one work. So the question really is how much dross you will tolerate. Will you listen to Brahms's Second? Mahler's Fifth? Bach's Cantata #10? How about Grieg's Piano Concerto or Schubert's Rosamunde music? The syndrome indicates, in my opinion, an unhealthy attitude toward art that segregates it to the quasi-sacred part of our lives, rather than relates it to all parts of our lives. In other words, art shouldn't necessarily be something we have to dress up for.

Extractions: Phoenix USA PHCD143 Total time: 70:30 Paul Creston (1906-1985), Vittorio Giannini (1903-1966), and Nicolas Flagello (1928-1994) all were Italian-American composers who were associated with a fairly traditional (one might say "old-fashioned") style of writing. Giannini and Flagello enjoyed a long-lasting mentor/pupil relationship. And, as an interesting bit of trivia, the latter two men were brothers to well-known opera singers; Giannini's sister Dusolina was a soprano, and Flagello's brother Ezio was a bass-baritone. This CD is an illuminating collection of their major works for solo piano. Creston's attractive sonata, which opens the disc, runs the coolest emotional temperature. Written in 1936, it comes from the early portion of his career. In the opening movement alone, its moods shift from a toccata-like purposefulness to lyricism to a sort of neo-Baroque playfulness. The second movement is a wry classical dance, and the third is a richly-harmonized barcarolle. The finale is a moto perpetuo Giannini's sonata comes from the very end of his life, when he was the victim of dwindling artistic recognition, a lost marriage, and poor physical health. Unsurprisingly, it is a work of dark and almost violent passions; the first movement will leave you feeling decidedly storm-tossed. The central movement contains this CD's most immediately notable music. It has the air of a morbid cradle-song. Hypnotically, it builds to a climax marked by a shift from minor to major tonality and the introduction of an ineffably sad melody. The finale is a grim toccata that places high technical demands on the pianist.
Extractions: Albany Records TROY234 Flagello spent almost all his career at the Manhattan School of Music, and the Albany disc represents somewhat of a tribute from his colleagues there. Both Nagata and Vinograde currently serve on the faculty. As to the Vox performers, David Amos has done yeoman's work reviving music by American neo-Romantics and traditionalist mavericks, and I'm happy to see a star like Oliveira taking an interest in music he'll probably make no money from (although he too connects to Flagello through his studies at the Manhattan School). However, the prime mover of these discs seems to be their producer, Walter Simmons, a long-time Flagello champion and whose advocacy I first encountered in the early Seventies, a particularly inhospitable time to put forward conservative, tonal composers. The conservative vs. radical fight, usually expressed as tonality vs. 12-tone serialism, produced half-truths on both sides that, despite history, common sense, and the willingness to hear, continue to be put forward. As with most polemics, the object is to win and to stake out turf, not really to arrive at a truthful or a just appreciation. It turned out that the fight was largely irrelevant to the future, just like the 19

Extractions: We are already used to praising John McCabe, Eric Parkin, Margaret Fingerhut, Ralph Holmes and Raphael Wallfisch for their dedication to recording and live performing rare British music. Tatjana Rankovich will, I hope fall into the same category. This collection of substantial items promises well indeed. Ms Rankovitch is a most fluent and technically capable pianist with no shortage of brilliance thankfully matched with an expressive vein. We also have Phoenix (an unsung or under-sung label - we hardly ever hear about them - why?) to thank for their valour in recording music which is hardly safe 'box-office'. Phoenix have even resisted the temptation of adding some Gershwin as is the misguided habit in other areas where rarer American material is offered on disc or in concert. Nicholas Flagello is first represented by two waltzes. The first is tender and Ravelian; the second desperately busy like over-wound and gabbling machinery. Flagello recycled these works into his 1965 suite for harp and string trio and in the scherzo of Symphony No. 1. The Sonata is not as 'purple' as the Giannini of one year later. It is tougher: Gothic in its clangour, angular and melodramatic with little rushing rivulets of notes. The Rubato central section is romantic strenuously attitudinal music - striking, dark and gestural. Allegro vivace quanto possibile is a pretty clear incitement to speed and Rankovitch needs no second bidding. The movement has all the desperately stony excitement of a wild machine freed from its governor.
