Editorial Reviews

Review

Pina Napolitano's debut recording... certainly is outstanding... Her knowledge of the music is manifest in every bar, and she conveys its real quality as music - rather than as an object of academic study - with nice judgment and a fine, delicate technique. Tempi are frequently more measured than in many competitors, for instance Uchida in Opp 11 and 19, or Pollini in general. Where some might miss the latter's masculine drive and momentum in Op 25, Napolitano has a tensile strength to her playing that is distinctly hers. The Suite is, without doubt, Schoenberg's piano masterpiece - however much the Op 19 pieces may hog the limelight - yet Napolitano convinces that the Op 33 diptych is its logical extension and refinement. --International Piano Magazine Guy Rickards

The rush of talent is as limitless as the infinity of labels that now flourish where once the majors commanded attention. Winnowing wheat from chaff becomes ever more difficult and the risk of missing a remarkable artist is a constant anxiety. Odradek is a start-up label based in Italy and committed to new artists and modern work. A one-CD album of Arnold Schoenberg's solo piano works has not come my way for years, perhaps since Pollini three decades ago. Pina Napolitano plays the tricky pieces with light fingers and innate wit, bringing out a welter of contemporary parallels Mahler in op 11/2, Busoni in op 23 amid a panoply of delicate beauty. --La Scena Musicale 'CD of the Week' Norman Lebrecht

Exploring what she terms as Schoenberg's 'exasperated Romanticism' through his solo piano works, Napolitano produces playing of rare penetration, understanding, grace and elegance. --5 STARS - BBC Music Magazine Calum MacDonald

Product Description

Odradek Records takes Schönberg's reception of the classical tradition and his pioneering the path to the new music as the starting point of its musical adventure. Its first release features Italian pianist Pina Napolitano performing Schönberg's complete piano works, in a rendition that, fully realizing the scores in all their complexity, animates the music and makes it dance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Napolitano allows Schoenberg to Speak May 25, 2012
By dromy87
Format:Audio CD
Pina Napolitano treats Schoenberg's works with utmost sensitivity. There is a wealth of meaning within the musical language of the composer which she is able to articulate which makes listening to the album a true pleasure, and a substantive experience. She has done both Schoenberg and those interested in his music a great service. So rare is it to find musicians who treat such music as music; Napolitano is a new force, expanding of the parameters of how artists maneuver Schoenberg's work, as well as enriching the listener's appreciation for the music of modernity.
