Description
Featuring Weber's Rondo Brillante "La Gaité"; three Mazurkas and the Barcarolle in F-sharp Major, Op. 60, by Chopin; Fauré's Barcarolle No. 3 in G Flat Major, Op. 42; Debussy's Tarentelle styrienne "Danse"; Ravel's Pavane pour une infante défunte; Mendelssohn's Song Without Words ("Spinning Song"); three spectacular Liszt rhapsodies, and more, this is an Earl Wild disc not to be missed. This Ivory Classics disc is part of a career overview of Earl Wild, born in 1915, whose playing was already "a source of wonder" by the time he turned six, according to Time magazine. A concert hall veteran as a teenager, Wild joined Arturo Toscanini's NBC Symphony and performed a breakout radio broadcast of Gershwin's Rhapsody in Blue with that orchestra in 1942. Two years later, he gave the first piano recital on American television. From his vast repertoire, Wild made more than 100 recordings reflecting "not only lofty technical standards but a striking musical sophistication," wrote LA Times music critic Daniel Cariaga. The Chicago Tribune marveled that Wild's "polished pianism, knowing application of color and refined poetic sensibility make every piece come alive." We treasure these masterful and thoroughly enjoyable performances of the late, great American virtuoso, and hope you will too.

"He soars through a collection of show-stoppers with a verve fueled by stinging articulation … sharply profiled rhythms, (listen to the stunning syncopations in the d'Albert), and a clarity of fingerwork that will leave you dazed…. Not even the studio accounts of the three Hungarian Rhapsodies that Wild made about a year earlier have the moxie of these truly rhapsodic readings."—Fanfare

"Reveals the pianist as the dazzling master of velocity, the consummate showman who has never failed to be inspired to great heights by the presence of a live audience. That 'dazzleocity' (to coin a new word) is most apparent in pieces like Carl Maria von Weber's Rondo Brillante, Eugen d'Albert's Scherzo, and Moritz Moszkowski's Étincelles (Sparks), to say nothing of Felix Mendelssohn's 'Spinning Song,' in which the pianist brings out the subtle melody underlying the rapidly whirling circular figures. But we see also Wild's mastery in Gabriel Fauré's Barcarolle, a lilting 6/8 piece in which the relaxed tunefulness contrasts with dramatic episodes that give the lie to the hoary myth that Fauré was not really interested in the piano (of course, his music has not always had an Earl Wild to champion it)."—Atlanta Audio Society
