Oleg Marshev in recital

kilde: KuItuNaut, Caspar Andreas Dyrehauge Man. 17. nov. 2008

Oleg Marshev spiller overbevisende materialet pв sin nye CD Un recital”. Forse og fremmest er det en god blandning af vaerker – polske Chopin, ungarske Liszt og russiske Scriabin – dernaest er det en pianist, der kan noget mere end blot lire ballader af. Marshev er skraemmende god pв tangenterne, og man nyder hans selskab – han har noget pa hjertet.

Oleg Marshev far virkelig tangenterne til at danse pв sin nye udgivelse fra det danske pladeselskab Danacord. Hans 3 valse af Chopin er ikke blot velvalgt,men i hoj grad ogsб velspillet. Selvfolgelig er Chopin en yderst prekaer komponist, og hans vaerker er mesterstykker for piano – hvilket ikke gor Marshevs projekt nemmere. Albummet бbner med tre vaerker af ungarske Frans Liszt.

Marshev spiller sig elegant og stilsikkert igennem, isaer Rhapsodie espagnole er vaerd at fremhaeve. Dernaest de omtalte valse af Chopin plus en ballade. Sа er tiden kommet til den russiske komponist Scriabin, der med sine vaerker stаr som en af Ruslands allerstorste. Han levede i perioden 1872-1915 – en periode, der ogsб rummede det russiske komponist- og klavergeni Rachmaninov – og man kan uden tvivi fornemme de romantiske suk i Scriabins musik. Marshev har et godt tag i Scriabin, og speciale de to marzurkaer (Op. 40) er flot fremfort.

Oleg Marshev, pt. bosiddende i Italien, er blevet rosi til skyerne i forskellige internatinnale sammenhaenge, ikke mindst klassiske tidsskrifter som Pianist Margazine har givet den russiskfodte pianist venlige ord med pа vejen.

Marshevs spillestil er da ogsб praeget af en eminent forstаelse og laesning af de respektive vaerker. Han kender sit materiale til fingerspidserne, og det er disse fingerspidser han med omhu og elan saetter pа klaveret. Ikke mindst udvalget pа denne CD repraesenterer Marshevs greti; Scriabins Preludes, op. 15 af en ung mand pа 23, et sted mellem 1895-96, bliver i haendeme pа Marshev til en brusende folelse af vemod og laengsel.

Det romantiske suk haenger ved en laenge efter man har Iyttet til CD’en. Det er tydeligt, at Marshev giver lidi af sig selv pб denne udgivelse, og man fornemmer et behageligt temperamene, der indfanger den osteuropaeiske tone, som alle tre komponister pа hver deres mаde repraesenterer. Og det er ikke en bedrift, det er alle vel undt at slippe godt fra, men Marshev far sin CD til at haenge sammen pа en mаde, der vel mбs siges at vaere hans stil, hans saerkende.

Marshev har i sine tidligere udgivelser taget favntag med de allerstorste, og man kan kun opfordre manden til at fortsaette. Og gerne mere fra de osteuropaeiske mestre, tak.

The Pianist

OLEG MARSHEV IN RECITAL

DACOCD 677

In Oleg Marshev’s new disc the revelation comes with the Scriabin pieces, which are quite simply ravishing.

Oleg Marshev has recorded all of Tchaikovsky’s works for piano and orchestra, and is one of the few pianists who has inhis discography more works for piano and orchestra than solo recitals. Critics around the world praise his releases, however, this new recording, made straight after a successful New Zealand concert tour, may be his best. Never has the Liszt Funerailles sounded so devastatingly tragic, the Spanish Rhapsody so super virtuosic and the Chopin so stylish and brilliant. The real revelation comes with the last Scriabin pieces which are quite simply ravishing in their beauty and where one really can say that the piano sings. Round up many of the younger pianists mentioned earlier in this review, and they will sound grey by comparison. If ever you wake up one night and question what piano playing is all about, the answer lies right here.

This recital shows Oleg Marshev’s formidable powers in a dazzling, ultra-Romantic light. Yet his super-size virtuosity – a place where muscles bulge and ripple – is backed by a no less enthralling musicianship. Marshev’s earlier record of the Liszt-Tausig Tasso will have alerted even the most blase virtuoso-fancier to exceptional powers and here in the Rhapsodie espagnole he sets all guns blazing, sinking up to his shoulders rather than mere elbows in an engulfing brilliance. His Funerailles, too, is hypnotically graphic and threatening, building remorselessly to a ferocious climax, and in the tenth of the Transcendental Etudes there is a superb sense of its appassionato F minor turbulence. Such virtuosity is scarcely less visceral in Chopin, with the closing pages of the Fourth Ballade heated to boiling-point, though relaxing in a selection of waltzes into an open-hearted relish of everything the composer has to offer. Poised and patrician in Rubinstein’s or Lipatti’s sense he may not be, but he makes it impossible to resist such character and liberation, such rich and lavish musical breathing. Marshev is on home ground in Scriabin, memorably attuned to his volatility and introspection, to those startling shifts of mood and emphasis at the heart of his bewildering genius. This is an astonishing, all-stops-out release, beautifully recorded. And how gratifying to know that there are many more on the way.

Listening to these captivating performances, with all concerned playing as though they believed in every note, reminded me of Vox’s 1970s heyday in the UK on Decca Turnabout when 99p would buy you Michel Ponti playing Balakirev, Lyapunov or Tchaikovsky’s Second with a scorching abandon and imperativeness that in many ways has never been surpassed on disc.

This is Oleg Marshev’s finest disc since his stylish accounts of the two Shostakovich concertos. He includes a genuine rarity which has not even surfaced on Hyperion’s Romantic Concertos series, the rather ordinary specimen by Königsberg-born, Russocentric Pavel Pabst (1854-97). Calum MacDonald’s liner notes suggest that ‘the date of the work, its tonality and its thematic structure’ may have been tailored to the 1883 coronation of Tsar Alexander the Third. Be that as it may, it’s short on truly distinctive grandeur, but it does give Marshev a chance to display both muscular virtuosity and light transcendentalism, executed as well as anyone could wish. The other concertos on the disc are touched by genius, though neither shows its composer at his most characteristically flamboyant. The 17-year-old Prokofiev was learning the Rimsky-Korsakov Concerto when he learnt of the master’s death in 1907, and wrote in his diary how the work ‘enchanted me with its refinement, clarity, simplicity and sincerity’. Those are characteristic of this interpretation both from Marshev and his team, the South Jutland Symphony Orchestra and Vladimir Ziva. Scriabin was only 18 when he wrote his only concerto (unless we count Prometheus), so don’t expect mystic fireworks; but there is a lovely virginal candour in parts, especially for the theme of the central movement’s variations, and these sensitive players do it justice, flaming only for the final blaze. The sound is as crisp and clean as the performances. David Nice
