I'd think he can comprehend a simple rhythm.


Surprisingly, it seems to be a challenge for most people who play this piece wink And there are all sorts of arguments and disagreements about some rhythms in 109.

Can you elaborate? How are the rhythms usually played wrongly? And which rhythms have generated disagreements?

I don't have the score with me at the moment but one particular passage jumps at me - the scale at the end of the first "improvisational" section.

I had never heard of him before, but these performances have been a real treat for me.

This morning my local classical station played the Op 109 with Paul Lewis. It was incredible, and I wasn't able to do much else except sit and listen. So it was with some trepidation that I approached Luvisi's Op 109 this afternoon. (I mean, more than one Op 109 per day verges on Spiritual overload.)

But I must say, Beethoven's softly caressing lightning can strike twice in one day. I am very grateful to have heard this.

Thanks for the comment, Jason!

Here are two more that have made it from Box to YouTube: All-Schubert recital (Op. 142 Impromptus, D. 960 Sonata) and an all-variations compilation from various recitals (Beethoven Eroica, Mendelssohn Op. 54, Brahms-Handel).

I hope you all enjoy. The Schubert is especially other-worldly. smile

That was an INCREDIBLE op. 109, and I really enjoyed the Mendelssohn Songs without Words and the Schumann Fantasie. So many amazing (live!) recordings! Very beautiful, honest, music-making.


Working on:
Chopin - Nocturne op. 48 no.1
Debussy - Images Book II

Thanks, Kuan! I got a few more to share before I've exhausted what he gave me (I may ask and see if he may want to pick out some more, hehe).

I'm listening to the Chopin Fantasy right now. It's kind of nice, but it doesn't move me like some performances of this work have. He often loses the thread of the piece, and I wish it were phrased better.

Based on your comments I just listened to the Fantasy as well.

The playing is very clean, but too "controlled" (restrained?)for my taste and ponderous at times. The first statement of the "March" section left me cold (what was he thinking??), and the notorious RH/LH octaves were way too slow. In general the performance lacked momentum and excitement. On the plus side, however, I thought Luvisi did a beautiful job of voicing in the slow middle section. Of course, all of the audible "hacking" in the audience probably didn't help his concentration. grin

Yes. I was generous. The section at 5:04, especially, is total garbage not very good.

5:04? That would be during the Galuppi, wouldn't it?

Thanks for listening and sharing your opinion (and you too, carey). The Fantasy actually wasn't my favorite of the performances I've been posting (though, it's also not one of my favorite pieces), but I did really like the Schubert before it. wink

That's interesting. The Mendelssohn Rondo Capriccioso was one of my audition pieces up at Brevard in 1968. He was very complimentary. A very nice man.
