Sony Classical releases a six-album collection encompassing John Ogdon’s complete recordings for the RCA Victor label to mark the 25th anniversary of this legendary British pianist’s untimely death in 1989.
Four LPs appear here for the first time on CD, while a 1972 Liszt recital is released for the first time outside of Japan. The repertoire reflects different facets of Ogdon’s large-scale pianism and unusual musical proclivities. From an early age he displayed a passion for Liszt that never abated. His penchant for surmounting the piano repertoire’s most challenging edifices brilliantly manifests itself in Beethoven’s mighty “Hammerklavier” Sonata, Rachmaninoff’s two piano sonatas and the first complete recording of Alkan’s Concerto for Piano Solo.
One album featuring piano music by Carl Nielsen drew attention to this composer’s often undervalued keyboard output, as well as Ogdon’s lifelong curiosity about important works outside the central repertoire. Ogdon’s recording of Peter Mennin’s Piano Concerto and the first of two recordings he made of Richard Yardumian’s Passacaglia, Recitative and Fugue for piano and orchestra also represent the pianist’s fervent advocacy for the music of his time.
