Boris Bloch: Piano Works, Vol. 7 – Schubert (liv
Label: Ars Produktion
Format: COMPACT DISC
Boris Bloch's stupendous keyboard art and his incredibly strong personality are the basis for the widely praised depth of expression, the richness of color, the astonishing stylistic authenticity and the incomparable 'singing' of his piano playing. All this is reflected in the carefully composed programs of his recitals. Bloch's latest album for ARS PRODUKTION commemorates the 190th anniversary of Schubert's death. Born in Odessa, the pianist and conductor Boris Bloch has long been regarded as one of the most important interpreters of classical and romantic piano music. After studying at Moscow’s Tchaikovsky Conservatory under the world-renowned pianist and pedagogue Dmitri Bashkirov he soon built up a large and ever expanding repertoire extending from Scarlatti and Bach, the Viennese Classicists, Chopin and Liszt and covering the German and Russian Romantics to the most important composers of the 20th century. Bloch’s detailed knowledge of the piano literature of the last three centuries, his familiarity with the entire history of music and its protagonists along with his stupendous pianism and above all things his strong artistic personality form the basis for the much vaunted depth of expression, the abundance of color, the amazing stylistic originality and the incomparable “singing tone” of his playing, manifesting themselves equally in the careful composition of his recitals.
