HMC902219 佛斯特/梅尼可夫/布拉姆斯:第2,3号钢琴奏鸣曲 Brahms/Sonates Violin Sonatas No. 2&3 (Faust, Melnikov)(harmonia mundi)

旧版编号HMC901981(2008)

对同时身为作曲家和演奏者的布拉姆斯而言,钢琴无疑是他一生中最熟悉的伙伴。然而当他谱写室内乐时,年轻时学过的大提琴和自然号的演奏经验同样让他受益斐浅。根据他的传记作家所言布拉姆斯偏好自然号(法国号前身,没有转阀只能凭演奏者的嘴唇和右手调整音高)远胜过19世纪初问世的转阀法国号。儘管在性能上自然号无法和转阀式相比,在他看来自然号温暖略为暗沉的音色反映出当时神秘抒情主义的氛围,正是理想中浪漫音色的具体化。

布拉姆斯原本对转阀式法国号充满成见,在这首三重奏原本也打算使用自然号,但推测可能在克拉拉舒曼的住处第一次排练后便打消念头,於是重新修订乐谱给转阀法国号。虽然我们不清楚他的创作动机为何,不可否认的是布拉姆斯的确让这三种不寻常的乐器组合发挥了难以想像的魅力。至於布拉姆斯在三重奏中取用自己以前创作的艺术歌曲,将诗意和音乐完美结合的作法,在其他室内乐中也相当常见,像是第一号小提琴奏鸣曲的第三乐章便取用了「雨之歌」作为素材。布拉姆斯在这首奏鸣曲自传式的将他的希望与绝望投入其中。

专辑内最后一首幻想曲,作品116号–和其他13首并列布拉姆斯生前最后的钢琴作品–则像是垂垂老矣的作曲家想藉著乐曲孤独的重新回顾过往的人生。一直以来许多人推测或许是戏剧性主题的关係,布拉姆斯才将这20首钢琴曲拆成四部出版,作品116号则包含了三首綺想曲和四首间奏曲。布拉姆斯在这些小品中兼顾了内向与外向的个性,正如小提琴家姚阿幸对他的评语「让声音呈现无比的诗意」。

三位演奏家佛斯特、梅尼可夫和突尼斯.樊德史瓦特各自使用了古乐器以期能忠实还原布拉姆斯当年所希望听到的音响效果。在听完第一曲之后,便能清楚明白这个决定是再聪明不过。

A 19th-century 'trio sonata'. Isabelle Faust and Alexander Melnikov have already given us an acclaimed version Brahms's First Violin Sonata, in 2007. They now complete the cycle with the other two sonatas of 1886 and 1888, and add a fascinating rarity dating from 35 years earlier: the 'F-A-E' Sonata, a collaborative effort by three composers in honour of the great violinist Joachim, who had to guess who had written which movement! He did so with ease, for the Scherzo is as eminently Brahmsian as the Intermezzo and Finale are Schumannesque.

AllMusic Review by James Manheim

There are plenty of recordings of Brahms' second and third violin sonatas, cornerstones of the violin chamber repertoire that demand much from the players in terms of keeping melody and motivic intricacy balanced. This one, from the violin-and-piano duo of Isabelle Faust and Alexander Melnikov, has several features that make it stand out. One is the presence of a third sonata that's rarely recorded (along with three Romances by Robert Schumann that are not exactly common items themselves). This is the so-called F-A-E Sonata, a collaborative work by the young Brahms (who wrote the Scherzo), Schumann (who wrote the slow movement and the exuberant finale), and Schumann's student Albert Dietrich. The work's dedicatee was Joseph Joachim, who had adopted the motto "Frei aber einsam" (free but lonesome) that gave the work its name. Joachim was challenged to identify the composer of each movement and did so without difficulty; you may well do the same, but the work, unified by the F-A-E pitches used in the thematic material, is more than the gimmick it might seem. The otherwise unknown Dietrich was pushed to what are probably his greatest heights by his two talented co-composers, and the opening sonata-form movement at least inhabits the same world as Schumann and Brahms. The other novelty here is Melnikov's period piano, an 1875 Bösendorfer that strips away a good deal of the warm Steinway haze the sonatas have in most performances and leaves in its place a rather spare performance that even in the songful Violin Sonata No. 2, Op. 100, shifts the listener's attention to the motivic structure, perhaps in recognition of the fact that Brahms designated the Violin Sonata No. 2 a sonata "for piano and violin." The performance has the clarity that characterizes Melnikov's solo recordings of Romantic repertory, even if the case for period instruments is a good deal less clear here than it is in earlier music. At the very least, however, this is an intriguing Brahms recording, and the Teldex Studio sound is superb.

5.0 out of 5 starsThis is another thoughtfully perceptive disc to add to the consistently impressive Faust discography.

By I. Giles TOP 500 REVIEWER on October 13, 2015

Format: Audio CD

This disc, recorded in 2014, completes the whole set of the three Brahms violin sonatas played by Faust and Melnikov. The first sonata, previously issued, is coupled with the Brahms trio and his Op 116 Fantasias for piano. This inevitably makes for difficulties for collectors as the main alternatives for the violin sonatas couple all three on one disc.

This disc also comes with unusual couplings which are the Schumann Three Romances which were published for either violin and piano or oboe and piano. These are very attractive pieces of vintage Schumann inspiration in a particularly gentle and song-like mode. The song-like nature of the music particularly suits the oboe, a wind instrument which phrases like a singer. There is a famous and superb version of these three pieces for oboe played by Holliger and Brendel as part of a Schumann disc of supreme quality. However, Faust and Melnikov make a strong case for the violin version with all the appropriate empathetic phrasing and tonal response.

At this point it is worthwhile to mention that the Faust disc features Melnikov's own Bosendorfer piano from 1875 and Faust’s Stradivarius violin which makes this disc qualify for ‘period’ status. The piano tone and dynamics are far more in line with modern pianos than might be expected and is far fuller than those used for period performances of music of an earlier date. No hint of woodenness’ or shallow tonal response for example and far greater dynamic range by this time. This disc will not cause concern for those interested in a modern instrument sound and who will be more likely to be mildly intrigued by the sound presented here.
