Chopin Waltz op. 62, no. 2 in B min. – Elisha Abas

0 Chopin Waltz op. 62, no. 2 in B min.   Elisha AbasWaltz op. 62 no. 2 in B minor by Frédéric Chopin
Elisha Abas, piano
Recorded live in New York City

From a recital in New York City of Israeli concert pianist Elisha Abas. He was a prodigy who, during his youth, shared the stage with Leonard Bernstein and Isaac Stern at Carnegie Hall, and performed in a televised concert with the Israeli Philharmonic Orchestra under Zubin Mehta. During a visit to Israel, Artur Rubinstein encountered the young Elisha and, upon hearing him play, sought to mentor him. Elisha still has the engraved watch Rubinstein gave him to commemorate their rapport. But, despite this brilliant beginning, Mr. Abas has only recently returned to the world of music after wanting to withdraw from it at age 14. Among other endeavors, he has been a professional soccer player in Israel’s Premiere League, and he is also the great-great grandson of Russian composer and pianist Alexander Scriabin. He was a life-long student of the legendary Israeli piano teacher Pnina Salzman, who was a pupil of Alfred Cortot. Mr. Abas’s Russian debut took place in Saint Petersburg in October 2008. Recently, his recording of Brahms’s First Piano Concerto was released and he performed in Caracas with the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra of Venezuela. In April 2012 he will perform Chopin’s Second Piano Concerto at New York’s 92nd Street Y.

Masters of the Keyboard: Shai Wosner – Schumann: “Carnaval”

The following are program notes for Masters of the Keyboard: Shai Wosner, piano at the 92nd Street Y from April 25, 2009.

SCHUMANN: Nachtstücke, Op. 23
DEBUSSY: Préludes, Book 1
SCHUMANN: Carnaval, Op. 9

In Carnaval, Op. 9 (composed 1834-35; 27 minutes), that genre is transformed into a monumental statement. Written in the winter of 1834-5 (and finished during carnival season), its short pieces are framed between the opening Préambule (or Introduction) and the closing finale and construct a dense web of moods, cross relations, riddles and allusions. Originally, the set was subtitled Faschingschwänke auf vier Noten (Carnival pranks based on four notes), since it uses the four pitches that musically stand for the letters Asch (the native bohemian village of Ernestine von Fricken, Schumanns fiancée at the time) but also Sch. A. (Schumanns last and middle initials). Many titles refer to specific characters, some fictional (from the commedia dellarte), others semi-fictional (such as Chiarina—reference to Clara Wieck, or Estrella—most likely Ernestine), and others real (Chopin and Paganini, whose movements are the only ones not based on the four pitches). Two very important characters that are both real and fictional, depending on the point of view, are Eusebius and Florestan, Schumanns frequent noms de plume and representations of aspects of the personality he created for himself. The rich, colorful array of characters is constructed with incredible economy and precision: Chopin is captured in no more than thirteen bars; Florestans erratic disposition comes to life and self-destructs in just over a single page.

“ON NATURE” Matisyahu, DP Dave Holmes & PS22 Chorus at 92nd Street Y (PRO SHOT!!)

0 ON NATURE Matisyahu, DP Dave Holmes & PS22 Chorus at 92nd Street Y (PRO SHOT!!)http://ps22chorus.blogspot.com

http://92y.org

On March 16, 2010, the PS22 Chorus gave an epic performance at the 92nd Street Y with the great Matisyahu. Needless to say, I had been dying to get ahold of this performance ever since, and was ecstatic to finally receive a copy from Matisyahu’s manager when the kids performed with Matis last month at the ONEXONE Gala. Not only is it always a thrill to see and hear the kids professionally recorded, this particular performance featured the kids at their best with not only the genius of Matisyahu, but also accompanied by DP Dave Holmes of the Dub Trio on acoustic guitar! Playing with him and Matis was an inspiration, and I think we all enjoyed improvising our respective parts and bouncing off of each other’s ideas.

We were actually only slated to do “One Day” for this performance, but we all recognized magic was happening on “On Nature” at the rehearsal earlier that day (footage previously posted). Matis was cool enough to insist on us doing that one as well! Messale, who actually was a Matisyahu fan already, spontaneously stepped in to sing with Matis at the rehearsal, a bit unsure of the words, but sounding awesome! So on the bus ride to the event later that afternoon, I had him listening over and over to the first verse on my iPod, so he could have a moment with Matis. And what a moment it was!

This was just one of those performances where everything came together perfectly, so deepest thanks to the 92nd Street Y and of course to Matisyahu & his management for giving us permission to post these two videos!
