Romantische Klavierkonzerte Vol. 47

Though barely remembered now, both Salomon Jadassohn and Felix Draeseke were major figures in German musical life in the second half of the 19th century. Both began their studies at the conservative Leipzig Conservatory but after independently encountering Liszt and his work at Weimar in the 1850s both became disciples of that composer and the New German School he established. Jadassohn subsequently returned to Leipzig where he composed and had a long and distinguished teaching career, his pupils including Delius, Grieg and Busoni, while Draeseke finally ended up in Dresden teaching at the Conservatory there. In a further paralleling of lives, both composers' concertos were written at almost the same time-Draeseke's sole
example in 1886 and Jadassohn's two the following year. All three are expertly crafted and feature wonderfully
idiomatic piano writing, as one would expect of Liszt pupils. Stylistically they show their links both to Liszt's single movement forms (Jadassohn 1) and also to more traditional models. While not ground-breaking these are thoroughly enjoyable examples of the genre and one must question why the Jadassohn works in particular, which have truly memorable themes, have been so completely forgotten. We are delighted to welcome Markus Becker in his first concerto recording for Hyperion; expect more soon!
Praise for REGER Cello Sonatas CDA67581/2
'This is a stimulating package, very well played: both artists produce the passionate response demanded of them ... Markus Becker is well able to undertake the music's considerable virtuosity' (Gramophone) 'Exceptionally rewarding ... It would be difficult to find more persuasive advocates than cellist Alban Gerhardt and pianist Markus Becker, both of whom are steeped inside the idiom and know exactly how to present the music with cogency and a sure sense of direction. The Four Cello Sonatas provide a fascinating overview of Reger's musical development, moving from the Brahmsian warmth of the First to the highly expressionist and unsettling Fourth. With the aid of excellent sound, Gerhardt and Becker map out this musical journey with wonderful sensitivity' (BBC Music Magazine)
