Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Stephen Coombs follows up the superb first volume in his survey of Glazunov's piano music for Hyperion (superb to a large extent because of the inclusion of the masterpiece that is the first sonata) with another splendid release, and shows how fertile was the invention and imagination of this composer, who is sometimes written off as a relatively mediocre composer able to bedazzle his audiences through his mastery of orchestral colors alone. This series (and the various releases of his chamber music) should certainly give lie to that notion. That said, some of the works here can hardly be said to raise above the level of skillfully written salon music - but others surely deserve a place in the concert repertoire.

One item that cannot be written off as dustily salonesque is the large-scale Theme and Variations op.72, which is as ambitious as his sonatas and such an incredible display of invention, atmosphere and color that its neglect is virtually unfathomable (or at least unjustifiable). Throughout its duration it goes through nearly every imaginable textural and coloristic effect; it encompasses pianistic fireworks and all sorts of flourishes and faery fires, meditative reflection and ferocious forward momentum. But the marvel of Glazunov as a composer is how ingeniously he melds the whole thing into a remarkable cogent whole.

The disc opens with the three etudes op.31; Chopinesque not only in style (though with a personal touch to them) but in quality as well, especially the fantastical second. I am also rather taken with the two pieces op.22, even though they are more in the style of salon music - yet the innocently quirky Barcarolle is a delight, and the dulcet, atmospheric Novelette is a really lovely piece.

An absolutely beautiful recording - the artful compositions of Alexander Glazunov and the artistry of Stephen Coombs combine to make this collection of pieces a great addition to my CD's. It is this particular recording (Piano Music 2) that provided the desire to get the Piano Music 1 by the same composer and pianist. I do not think that anyone who enjoys classical music would regret buying this CD.
