Rudolf Serkin's 1964 recording of Beethoven's Piano Concerto in C minor is surely among the greatest recordings of the work ever made, and certainly his finest performance of the work. The energy and enthusiasm and even passion he brings to Concerto in C minor is overwhelming, and indeed, it overwhelms Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic, who accompany Serkin with the sort of commitment that only a conductor and orchestra give to soloists when they are deeply inspired. But while Serkin's 1962 recording of Beethoven's Piano Concerto in E flat major is also surely among the greatest recordings of the work ever made, it is not quite Serkin's finest recording of the work.

The late Alfred Schnittke has, after his death, been accused of writing too much music of variable quality. This debate is still raging although suffice to say that the Eighth Symphony truly is one of his greatest works and indeed, one of the great symphonic works of the latter twentieth century. The charge of oppressive asceticism laid against the Sixth and Seventh symphonies can hardly be held up to this expansive and frankly emotional work. It is as if Schnittke relaxed the skeletal sounds of his previous essays in the genre and, while not quite returning to the dazzling orchestral pyrotechnics of the Fifth Symphony (Concerto Grosso no. 4), creating a work of great sincerity and beauty. The first movement is an obsessive repetition of a wide-ranging (in pitch, not rhythm) melody, seemingly effortlessly varied to touch on all sections of the orchestra.

Among the projects that Columbia had arranged with Gould were the complete recordings of Bach’s solo keyboard works and the Beethoven sonatas. Both were to remain unfinished. Long after becoming a concert drop-out, Gould now planned to become a “record drop-out”: “My contract with CBS runs a bit beyond my 50th year. After that, there is going to be a major change of gears, much as there was twenty years ago.”

By now the critics had evidently made their peace with Gould’s wayward readings of Beethoven. His recording of the C-minor Concerto, again with Leonard Bernstein, met with general approval, even if Gould “yields more to his own nature than he should in the Largo” and “meanders and rhapsodizes without thinking that this movement, too, is by Beethoven.“

This was the concerto with which Gould gave his orchestral début, playing its first movement on 8 May 1946. “Who does the kid think he is, Artur Schnabel?” snorted one critic, while another touted the thirteen-year-old boy as a “genius.” Whatever the case, this was the Beethoven concerto he played most frequently in public—twenty-nine times.

Gould’s sole collaboration with Leopold Stokowski, to whom he devoted a large radio portrait for the CBC in 1971. This musical “summit meeting” between the thirty-four-year-old Canadian and a maestro nearly half a century his senior caused yet another dream to come true: Gould’s first encounter with his revered Barbra Streisand, who was recording her latest album next door …

The Pianist Davide Milan Cabassi starts a recording path that will see him in the recording of four cd entirely dedicated to sonatas by Ludwig van Beethoven. The first of this series, recently published, contains the sonatas op. 10 and the Pathetique Op. 13. For the truth Cabassi had already recorded some sonatas of Beethoven (op. 110 and the two Op. 27), but it is now a more full-bodied and structured project to leave testimony of an author who is congenial, and which has also Concerts repertoire. Just in relation to the new record release takes place our meeting.
