Ives, Charles / Aloys Kontarsky - Concord Sonata Concord Sonata
Classical Used - LP MS 5013 Mainstream
Rare Stereo Original Housed In A Heavy-Duty, Laminated Gatefold Cover. Appears Unplayed. Aloys Kontarsky, Piano; Theo Plumacher, Viola; Willy Schwegler, Flute. This Superior Version Of The "Concord" Has Probably The Briefest Overall Timings Of Any Recording Of The Work. Even So, It Doesn't Sound One Bit Rushed. It Is An Intense, Tightly-Wound Performance, Free Of Sentimentality. Kontarsky Dashes Off Rapid-Fire Runs With Effortless Ease. And Because Of This Effortlessness, One Might Say That Kontarsky's Recording Comes Off As Less Grand And Perhaps Less Ruminative Than Others. In This Regard, It's Similar To Kirkpatrick's Classic Columbia Recordings. Both Have A Sort Of No-Nonsense Classicism; Both Are "Pianistic." In Any Case, This Is A Wholly Satisfying And Compelling Performance By Any Measure, And It's Well Worth Seeking Out. (It Also Includes Both The Optional Viola And Flute Parts.) This LP Has Never Been Issued On Compact Disc.... more details
