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.

Here's a private studio recording of Max Reger "Aus meinem Tagebuch" Op. 82, Book 1; and Bohuslav Martinu's Sonata No. 1. From 1978.



==========================================================

Final video from the recordings Mr. Luvisi gave me: another all-Beethoven recital.

Some lesser heard repertoire, including two pieces I can't identify:
-Sonata in G Major Op. 31 No. 1
-11 Bagatelles, Op. 119; Rondo in C Major Op. 51, No. 1
-"Lustin Traurig"
-"Fur Elise"
-The two pieces I cannot identify (any help? They are at 53:13 and 54:33)
-Six Variations in F Major, Op. 34.

Hope you enjoy. And can anybody identify the two pieces I don't know?

Was not familiar with him until around 1992 when NPR aired the Mozart Piano Concerto No. 17 in G major. St. Louis Symphony, Leonard Slatkin, I think. A wonderful performance. Met him a few years later when he performed, masterfully, the Brahms Piano Concerto No. 1 with the ASO. Audience and orchestra alike were in awe. A great pianist and a true gentleman. Thanks for posting the videos.

Thanks for posting here smile He gave me some more recordings, here's one I recently uploaded: Beethoven Polonaise, Op. 89 and Sonata in A Major, Op. 101. These actually are not from a live recital, but a private studio recording, I believe made in Louisville in 1978.

I'm afraid I can't post anything besides solo piano, for I would need to seek permission from orchestra/unions/chamber music societies/etc. There was a Tchaikovsky Concerto recording I posted a long time ago that I was asked to remove, for example.

Bumping: Uploaded two more videos, and a third to come. These are compilations from various recitals or recording sessions. If you click on the "YouTube" button in the bottom corner to watch it on YouTube instead of embedded here, you can see the entire programs in the video descriptions and skip to a specific piece. smile

All-Faure collection. Intriguingly, he always said his three favorite composers are Bach, Mozart, and Faure.


And here is the Hindemith first sonata, as well as Shostakovich's 24 Preludes, Op. 34.


Another all-Bach video to come soon: French Suite 6, Aria variata, and English Suite 4!

I think this is the last of them, until he gives me anything more. Or there may be one more from the stuff he gave me; I need to ask him.

But thanks for listening! smile Glad you enjoy, I think he's an amazing pianist and musician.

I was incorrect. There is still one more from what he gave me. Here it is:

Scarlatti: Sonatas in F-sharp Major K. 318 and 319
Schumann: Davidsbundlertanze
Frank Martin: Nos. 1, 3, and 7 from Preludes for Piano
Prokofiev: Sonata No. 2 in D Minor, Op. 14

Also, there will be a few more in the future: more Beethoven, more Mozart, probably some Haydn, I'm not sure what else. But for now, I hope you enjoy this. smile

Two new videos. These come from when he did the complete solo piano works of Mozart throughout the 1990-1991 season.

Four piano sonatas: K. 282, 284, 533/494, and 576


Six sets of variations:
Click to reveal..
12 Variations in C Major on a Minuet by Johann Christian Fischer, K. 179
12 Variations in B-flat Major on an Allegretto, K. 500
8 Variations in F Major on "Dieu d'amour" K. 352
9 Variations in C Major on "Lison dormait" K. 264
12 Variations in E-flat Major on "La belle Francoise" K. 353
10 Variations in G Major on "Unser dummer Pobel meint" K. 455



I've got five more to come: some more Beethoven, some more Bach, some more Haydn, a mix that includes Ravel's Gaspard, complete Chopin preludes, and Bach's Capriccio on the Departure of his Most Beloved Brother, and another mix of shorter works.
