 Alexei Lubimov Soloist

Alexei Lubimov chooses the repertoires he plays and records with the freedom of the inspired musician that he is. This time, the intention came from his encountering the sonority of a particular piano, a Tangentenflügel, i.e., a tangent piano (the strings being struck by a metal piece called a ‘tangent’) that, in France, was sometimes called a ‘harmonious, heavenly harpsichord’. And it is the singular sonority of this instrument that made him want to record this keyboard transcription of Haydn’s Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross.

Beyond this encounter, the album attests to Alexei Lubimov’s incredible force of evocation and amazing sound imagination; he also demonstrates – as if that were necessary – how much the relation between a certain kind of writing and a particular instrument can contribute to the comprehension of a work. 

 "... An hour of Adagio for solo piano (relieved only by the Presto e con tutta la forza of the earthquake finale, rightly one of Haydn’s best known dramatic gestures) is certainly a demanding listen - but from Lubimov  as an eloquent guide, with his Späth & Schmahl as a carefully chosen accomplice, it is a rewarding, repeatable and eminately recommendable one."
