In this extensive 2-CD set, Aimard juxtaposes a selection of Liszt’s works with compositions by Liszt’s contemporaries and successors who were inspired by the Hungarian composer. Recorded live in Vienna’s Konzerthaus over two evenings, Pierre-Laurent Aimard’s Liszt project is a pinnacle of the Liszt Year commemorations.

Die Kunst der Fuge: what a way to make your Deutsche Grammophon solo recording debut. That's especially true if you're Pierre-Laurent Aimard, whose full-time gig is with Pierre Boulez's Ensemble InterContemporain and whose reputation was made in the avant-garde and not the late Baroque. Recorded in translucent digital sound in the Mozart-Saal of Vienna's Konzerthaus, this recording deserves a wide audience, despite its apparent mismatch between performer and music.

This performance of the piano concerto is cherishable. It was not a work I knew when I bought this record but I fell in love with it quickly. It is by no means a second rank work - it belongs next to the wonderful Schumann piano concerto. At least that must be the conclusion of anyone listening to this magical performance.

These chamber works bring Sony's adventurous, timely Ligeti series to a natural pinnacle. Long the challenger of stylistic stasis and customary demonstrations of excellence, Ligeti has outdone himself here (as he did with the fantastic Mechanical Music release). The Trio for Violin, Horn, and Piano (1982) challenges its players to stay in step with each other even while expanding virtuosity to the breaking point. Marie-Luise Neunecker plays such full horn parts that they roll flow over the tonal bounds, as does Saschko Gawriloff's violin and Pierre-Laurent Aimard's piano... --Andrew Bartlett..

Continuing the collaboration with the Cleveland Orchestra, Deutsche Grammophon will release an all-new recording of works by Ravel featuring French pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard and conductor Pierre Boulez. The two artists have collaborated together for years, and now they give masterful accounts of Ravel's Concerto for the Left Hand and Concerto for Piano in G major. To complete the album, Aimard records Miroirs for solo piano, including the famous "Alborada del gracioso."

This Erato disc contains six generally minor works by Pierre Boulez. These works are minor in that they are less grand in their proportions but they are generally not minor in quality. The collection reminds me vaguely of the concept of "b-sides" in rock music, and just as with many rock acts, one feels that some gems are unfairly neglected. Two of the pieces here are among Boulez's earliest acknowledged works. The Sonatine for Flute and Piano and the Piano Sonata No. 1 both date from 1946, when Boulez was still trying to find his own sound going beyond the basis he found in the Second Viennese School. The Sonatine is inspired by Schoenberg's Chamber Symphony op. 9 in form and by Berg in its serial material, while both the Sonatine and the Piano Sonata find inspiration in Webern and Schoenberg for the virtuoso and "delirious" piano parts. The former is a rather unexciting work, I'd call it juvenalia even if Boulez thinks it worthy of preservation. However, the latter is a rich piece which displays new sides of itself on every listen. I quite enjoy Pierre-Laurent Aimard's performance here, it has a savagery to it unlike the methodical touch of Jumppanen or the nimbleness of Biret. The Ensemble Intercontemporain and BBC Singers perform, conducted by the composer himself. The pieces were recorded in the projection space at IRCAM, and so the sound quality is very good indeed. I heartily recommend this to the Boulez fan.
