4.0 out of 5 stars Bülow - More than Conductor July 16, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Hans von Bülow (1830-1894) was an illustrious figure in the nineteenth century: a rabid Wagnerite, an intense pupil and colleague of Liszt, a first-class pianist, and one of the finest conductors in music history. Bülow was director of countless conservatories, theaters and orchestras. He was the first to play the last five Beethoven sonatas in a single recital (from memory). He took the role of premiering Tchaikovsky's First Piano Concerto to the world. And his clever phrases and appellations have remained in the music world even today: the Three B's (Bach, Beethoven and Brahms), Bach's Well-Tempered Clavier as "Old Testament" and Beethoven's 32 Sonatas as the "New Testament."

The mention of Bülow's compositions, however, does not appear on his distinguished record, perhaps for good reason. His number of compositions extends at least to an Op. 20, but an accurate list of his works is difficult to find. The Marco Polo label and Daniel Blumenthal, however, do their best to compile his transcriptions, paraphrases and original works on a single CD. Bülow's contribution to the transcription repertoire is substantial with the dance airs from Gluck's "Iphigenie in Aulis." Donald Garvelmann, the liner-notes writer, states that "Gluck-in Bülow's hands-is tasteful, straightfoward and quite faithful to the original." The "Tanzweisen" is indeed a Baroque feast, containing beautiful moments, delightful rhythms and at times emotional weight (Sarabande and "Entrance of Achilles"), all crisp and pleasing on the piano.

Bülow's own compositions are not original, but a few stand out from the rest: the Tarantella, Arabesques on Rigoletto and the Wagner paraphrase.
