Goldenveizer

Post by mballan » Mon Oct 04, 2010 8:07 pm

I want to try something a little different here on Pianophilia. I hope to eventually have the vast majority of works by Goldenveiser, but want to attempt to post them slightly differently to what we have done in the past. Below is a brief biography of the composer and a works list. I will on occassions post to that works list and leave a note that a new work is available. Any contributions from other members will also be fed into the main framework. The aim, over time, is to build a comprehensive survey of the composer's music but without creating a meandering list of messages and postings.

For those who have not yet discovered it, I do recommend the Goldenveizer CD by Jonathan Powell on Toccata Label [TOCC 0044….includes Skazka Op 39, Sonata-Fantasie Op 37 & Contrapuntal Sketches Op12]....as noted by Jean-Séb.
" I wish to remind that our Isokani (Jonathan Powell) has recorded piano music by Goldenweiser:

My special thanks to Jonathan for sharing his Goldenveizer scores with me – and hence for all of us on Pianophilia.

________________________________________

Aleksandr Borisovich Gold’enveizer. Born 1875, Kishinev: died 1961, Moscow. Pianist, teacher, composer and writer. Goldenveizer received his training at the Moscow Conservatoire, where he studied with Ziloti and Paul Pabst, graduating in 1895. He went on to complete a degree in composition in 1897 under Arensky, Ippolitov-Ivanov and Taneyev. During this period, Goldenveizer’s formation as a pianist was greatly influenced by his close friendship with Rachmaninov, Scriabin and Medtner.

He made his debut in 1896 as a pianist in a series of duet recitals with Rachmaninov, Taneyev and Goedicke.

During his long career as a teacher, Goldenveizer played a key role in the development of Soviet music education. He began teaching in 1904 at the Moscow Philharmonic School and in 1906 was appointed professor of piano at the Moscow Conservatoire. Here he held many distinguished administrative positions and taught until his death in 1961. One of his greatest educational achievements was the establishment in 1932 of the first Central Special Music School. The school provided talented children aged 7 to 18, with a general education but also included musical training at a professional level and functioned as a preparatory school for the Moscow Conservatoire. The result of his legacy is that there are now 24 Special Music Schools across the Russian Federation.

Goldenveizer has also been credited with establishing the first outstanding Soviet piano school. During his 57 years as a professor of piano he taught over 200 students including Bashkirov, Berman, Blagoy, Feinberg, Fere, Gabuniya, Gunst, Kabalevsky, Nechayev, Nikolayeva, Paperno, Roizman, Rubin, Tamarkina, Voinov and Yevseyev. Goldenveizer’s aesthetics of performance were reflected in his own playing, which was distinguished by a profound insight into the composer’s ideas - a subtle sense for style, and careful adherence to the details of the text.

Goldenveizer composed thee opera, two symphonic suites, a cantata, a string quartet, a piano trio, numerous songs and of course a number of piano pieces. He was also a noted editor of works by classical and romantic composers including the sonatas by Beethoven. He also wrote works around his close friendship with Tolstoy as well as about his life. For his long standing service to Soviet music he was awarded a Doctor of Arts degree in 1940, and made People’s Artist of the Soviet Union in 1947. His apartment was opened in 1959 as a branch of the Glinka Museum of Music Culture.

Thank you Fleubis, Ilu, Jean-Séb and Alegitor - your contributions have been added to the main text / list with due reference to you.

Thank you for your postings.

The idea I am experimenting with via this thread, is to move away from our usual thread of messages to keeping everything within just a tight framework. We'll see how it goes :D

More Goldenveizer shortly [when my parcel arrives from St Petersburg] !!

You'll need to rejoin the three parts then open that file with your unzipper program. The join function of HJSplit works well for this and it's free.

I have joined the files together and made a B&W version which is quite a bit smaller (but still big :)) than the orginal. It may be downloaded here - http://www.mediafire.com/view/?tllb010h6jzygcw

My thanks to feinberg and Fred for gettings us a nice clean Goldenweiser of the 1st volume of the Beethoven Sonatas. For most of my life it has been Tovey & Schnabel, which have served me well but it is nice to see something different in a quality edition and maybe get some new ideas. Let's hope Volume 2 turns up to complete the set.

Alternative alfor scan:

The re-publishers on the sly omitted all (Russian-only) annotations (can be found in feinberg's post)

Goldenweiser = a person giving „golden advice“ (?)

P.S. Anybody interested in G.'s edition of[/color] Бетховен „Император“ Концерт?
