Performer Composers

Notes & Reviews:

This recording includes two pieces composed for Andrew von Oeyen by distinguished composer David Newman - including a world premiere recording. Von Oeyen also showcases the finest piano masterpieces by Debussy and Stravinsky in this stunning performance that captures von Oeyen at his best.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
For me, the best known set of Debussy piano pieces are the Preludes, Book 1. Ce qu'a vu le Vent d'Ouest requires technical skill on the order of L'Isle Joyeuse. Von Oeyen has as wide a dynamic range as one could hope for. All through the 12 Preludes I heard just enough originality of interpretation to keep my ears perked up. In L'Isle Joyeuse Von Oeyen is faster than Goerner (above) by 42 seconds, has more snap and accents in the accompaniment figures and is a bit more exciting. Goerner has the more subtle phrasing and dynamic inflections. Stravinsky's music makes a good companion to Debussy's. The two knew each other and actually gave the first known performance of The Rite of Spring in a piano 4-hand arrangement. Von Oeyen handles all of the mercurial shifts and rhythms just right.
