Johannes Brahms: Hungarian Dances – Wiener Philharmoniker, Claudio Abbado (Audio video)

In Memoriam Claudio Abbado (26/06/1933 - 20/01/2014)
















Οι Ουγγρικοί Χοροί του Γιοχάνες Μπραμς είναι, κατά κάποιον τρόπο, η μουσική συνεισφορά του συνθέτη στο χαρούμενο, ελαφρό μουσικό κλίμα της Βιένης του βαλς και της πόλκας, το οποίο βρισκόταν, πάντως χωρίς ανταγωνισμό, περίπου στον αντίποδα των δικών του συνθέσεων. Είναι όμως ιδιαίτερα χαρακτηριστικό ότι όταν ο Μπραμς αισθάνθηκε την ανάγκη να συνθέσει τέτοια μουσική, δεν κατέφυγε σ' αυτή την παράδοση της υιοθετημένης πόλης του, αλλά επέστρεψε για μία ακόμη φορά στην ουγγρική - τσιγγάνικη μουσική, τη σημασία της οποίας ήταν ο πρώτος έντεχνος συνθέτης που κατανόησε και προσπάθησε να την αξιοποιήσει. Έτσι, αν και η αναζήτησή του βγήκε από τα στενά όρια της γερμανικής λαϊκής μελωδίας, συνέχισε με τον δικό του τρόπο την παράδοση των μεγάλων συνθετών που έζησαν στη Βιένη, όπως ο Χάυντν, ο Μότσαρτ και ο Μπετόβεν, και στράφηκαν όλοι με διάφορους τρόπους και προς τη λαϊκή μουσική. — Μαλούχος Γεώργιος Π. (tovima.gr)

Τη Φιλαρμονική της Βιένης διευθύνει ο Κλαούντιο Αμπάντο. Μια σπουδαία ηχογράφηση του 1982.



"The playing of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra under Abbado is altogether exhilarating and sparkles like a good champagne..." — Robert Layton (Gramophone)

Typically we experience the Hungarian Dances individually as choice morsels, each capturing a few brief moments of full-blooded emotion. But in a single sitting, these works are the ultimate Classical music roller-coaster ride. And this recording may be the ultimate experience: the familiar gypsy tunes, dancing through extreme tempo changes, alternatively joyful and melancholy, are, in the hands of Claudio Abbado and the Vienna Philharmonic, quite thrilling. Though written for keyboard, the works have been well served through various instrumentations, but especially in these orchestral arrangements where the colors and textures seem to come to life. Somewhat unique in the orchestral repertoire, the pieces lend themselves to a wide range of interpretation – though immaculate technique and a fearless delivery are essential requirements. Aside from the oft-recorded 4-hand piano versions, Joseph Joachim's arrangements for solo violin are a wonderful contrast to these recordings, especially in a favorite disc by Aaron Rosand. First choice must still go to the arrangements heard here though. Even on the shortest of essential lists of Classical Music, this Vienna Philharmonic recording deserves a choice spot. Top recommendation. — arkivmusic.com
