👉Let’s hear again Lucas’ rendition of the Szymanowski Sonata no 2 in A Major. Op 21
His closer analysis of the work from the conversation for Philharmonie de Paris
"👉This work amazes by its power to create visual images. It is like a gigantic monument, a grand architecture similar to Beethoven’s “Hammerklavier“ or to Liszt sonata, to all those great opuses reminiscent of big cathedrals. There is something vertical, upward aspiring; it is like a pillar that rests on the ground. Here is something very telluric with these harmonies based on basses. Between these are the pictures or frescoes, something stormy and noisy, frightening imagery. One person told me once after the concert that this work reminds him of Michelangelo. There is like very heavy bodies falling from heaven, heavy but not heavy at the same time.
👉Szymanowski puts here all the time to question the rules of harmony and melody. They slip from one to the other, seemingly impulsively, although the control is constantly present. This work is full of contradictions and in my opinion, it takes shape and justifies itself just as a live performance in the concert. It's like a gigantic move forward, a grand crescendo.
👉The first part is very mystical, very passionate, there is a lot of triols. It has an odd rhythm, the music tries to avoid accented beats. On the contrary, the 2nd part is more metric, a graceful allegretto. It’s the theme with variations, gavotte, menuet or sarabande and Szymanowski kind of amuses himself here or pays tribute to this ancient music forms. All of the work has classical style elements but is always “infected“ by modernism. It culminates to an immense finale of a four-part fugue written also absolutely in the modernistic style, the theme consists of all 12 tones but it is not strictly dodecaphonic, because tones are repeated. Polyphonically the theme produces all the possible transformations that are known from Bach or Beethoven, such as retrograde, mirror, augmentation. At the end, there is a stretto but the finale always takes its proper way, keeps its strict fugue form and is really strong in form and imagery.
👉Szymanowski wrote this sonata at the same time as his 2nd symphony which has too a huge fugue in the end. All of his three piano sonatas end with fugues. Szymanowski likes fugues and you can see why - his style is intertwined by counterpunctual thinking. The melody starts, looks where to go and then descends into a fugue. It’s quite impressive.
👉The sonata ends with an extremely virtuosic coda reminiscent of vertigo. On these last four pages, he constantly uses the whole keyboard, it makes something shockingly great and very strong. By the end this work it is very hard for me to give an encore because there have been so many repetitions and chords. Everything feels set aflame, all the senses are at the highest level and it’s already painful to touch the keys.
👉This work is really a challenge to learn and to perform and for me, it is a challenge to interpret because to interpret is what really interests me."

Full words of Lucas saying from the broadcast in France Musique.
soundcloud.com/user-146080982/interview-in-france-musique-may-1-2020

English resume:
This is a special time for everyone, but I think I am even privileged because I have a small house and garden and I can be a musician. If you are a musician, you will never feel bored.
I have my great scores with me, which I can now dig even more into, such as J.S. Bach Well-Tempered Clavier. Normally it is hard to have so full concentration because you must take a plane after every day or two. So, strangely at a time like this, it is even an advantage to work on music and there's a lot more time for it.
I'd like to say it’s more respectful for the music because, in our time, the priority is to do everything quickly. I think it is a quite bad idea, to cultivate it in arts in general, to be obsessed with results, with speed. There are certainly those who find it very difficult to get used to this slowdown, who are used to live at a constant speed. And as soon as this "boat" is off course, these people will feel lost. I am not like that, but I didn’t know it before. I think we are living this moment right now.

What helps me to find myself is to disconnect even more from social networks and virtuality, because for me, this situation gives even more power to the virtuality that is invading to our lives. I find it scary - that reflex to film yourself playing music and posting a lot on social networks. It has become a reflex, and I think it’s terrible because this situation should invite us to turn inward, call to meditation, reflection rather than exhibition.

But I think everyone is coming out of this crisis, having grown their own way and it will completely change the music life, but not only musical. I think our life will be really different. I do not need to say a word of hope because I see hope in what is happening. We're being affected by something that's coming from the outside and I think it’s quite hopeful to see a large part of people reacting to something that's coming from the outside - I tended to think that we had fallen into madness that could not be resisted. I have the impression that there may be many different alternatives.

le plaisir de t'entendre avec et sans instrument !

Belle et authentique reflection et très beau partage, merci beaucoup !

I think you can do both (film yourself playing and spend time reflecting). I've used this time to push myself to expand my repertoire with the added pressure of having to share it.

Réflexions intéressantes. Cela m'a encouragé et m'a donné de l'espoir. Lucas est plus optimiste que nous. Je l'ai cru parce que Lucas philosophe...

👉Lucas is talking today in a broadcast of Radio France Musique together with Alexandre Tharaud and Adam Laloum. They talk about their views on the current time and future scenarios. Starting time: 20:00 CET
www.francemusique.fr/emissions/le-concert-de-20h/concert-inedit-recital-de-selim-mazari-au-festiv...
👉La citation: "Ce qui m'aide à me retrouver, c'est de me déconnecter encore plus des réseaux sociaux et de la virtualité, parce que pour moi, cette situation donne encore plus de pouvoir à la virtualité qui ne cesse d'envahir nos existences. Cette situation devrait nous inviter à l'intériorisation, à la méditation, à la réflexion plutôt qu'à l'exhibition. Mais je pense que chacun sortira grandi de cette crise de façon différente et je pense que cela va complètement changer le paysage musical, mais pas que musical. Je pense que notre vie sera vraiment différente. Je n'ai pas besoin de prononcer une parole d'espoir puisque je vois de l'espoir dans ce qui se passe. On est affecté par quelque chose qui vient de l'extérieur et en fait je trouve cela rassurant de voir une grosse partie de l'espèce humaine réagir à quelque chose qui vient de l'extérieur, là où j'avais plutôt tendance à croire qu'on était embarqué dans une frénésie contre laquelle on n'arrivait pas à opposer de résistance humaniste. J'ai l'impression qu'il y a peut-être des possibilités d'alternatives qui sont imaginables."

Full words of Lucas saying from the broadcast in France Musique.
soundcloud.com/user-146080982/interview-in-france-musique-may-1-2020

English resume:
This is a special time for everyone, but I think I am even privileged because I have a small house and garden and I can be a musician. If you are a musician, you will never feel bored.
I have my great scores with me, which I can now dig even more into, such as J.S. Bach Well-Tempered Clavier. Normally it is hard to have so full concentration because you must take a plane after every day or two. So, strangely at a time like this, it is even an advantage to work on music and there’s a lot more time for it.
I’d like to say it’s more respectful for the music because, in our time, the priority is to do everything quickly. I think it is a quite bad idea, to cultivate it in arts in general, to be obsessed with results, with speed. There are certainly those who find it very difficult to get used to this slowdown, who are used to live at a constant speed. And as soon as this "boat" is off course, these people will feel lost. I am not like that, but I didn’t know it before. I think we are living this moment right now.

What helps me to find myself is to disconnect even more from social networks and virtuality, because for me, this situation gives even more power to the virtuality that is invading to our lives. I find it scary – that reflex to film yourself playing music and posting a lot on social networks. It has become a reflex, and I think it’s terrible because this situation should invite us to turn inward, call to meditation, reflection rather than exhibition.

But I think everyone is coming out of this crisis, having grown their own way and it will completely change the music life, but not only musical. I think our life will be really different. I do not need to say a word of hope because I see hope in what is happening. We’re being affected by something that’s coming from the outside and I think it’s quite hopeful to see a large part of people reacting to something that’s coming from the outside – I tended to think that we had fallen into madness that could not be resisted. I have the impression that there may be many different alternatives.

It has become a reflex, and I think it’s terrible because this situation should invite us to turn inward, call to meditation, reflection rather than exhibition.

But I think everyone is coming out of this crisis, having grown their own way and it will completely change the music life, but not only musical. I think our life will be really different. I do not need to say a word of hope because I see hope in what is happening. Were being affected by something thats coming from the outside and I think it’s quite hopeful to see a large part of people reacting to something thats coming from the outside - I tended to think that we had fallen into madness that could not be resisted. I have the impression that there may be many different alternatives.

le plaisir de t'entendre avec et sans instrument !

Belle et authentique reflection et très beau partage, merci beaucoup !

I think you can do both (film yourself playing and spend time reflecting). I've used this time to push myself to expand my repertoire with the added pressure of having to share it.

Réflexions intéressantes. Cela m'a encouragé et m'a donné de l'espoir. Lucas est plus optimiste que nous. Je l'ai cru parce que Lucas philosophe…

👉La citation: "Ce qui m’aide à me retrouver, c’est de me déconnecter encore plus des réseaux sociaux et de la virtualité, parce que pour moi, cette situation donne encore plus de pouvoir à la virtualité qui ne cesse d’envahir nos existences. Cette situation devrait nous inviter à l’intériorisation, à la méditation, à la réflexion plutôt qu’à l’exhibition. Mais je pense que chacun sortira grandi de cette crise de façon différente et je pense que cela va complètement changer le paysage musical, mais pas que musical. Je pense que notre vie sera vraiment différente. Je n’ai pas besoin de prononcer une parole d’espoir puisque je vois de l’espoir dans ce qui se passe. On est affecté par quelque chose qui vient de l’extérieur et en fait je trouve cela rassurant de voir une grosse partie de l’espèce humaine réagir à quelque chose qui vient de l’extérieur, là où j’avais plutôt tendance à croire qu’on était embarqué dans une frénésie contre laquelle on n’arrivait pas à opposer de résistance humaniste. J’ai l’impression qu’il y a peut-être des possibilités d’alternatives qui sont imaginables."

Pas de traduction in English 😢😬😇

Thank you! This was a wonderful, deep, wise talk.

Потрясающий ! И пианист , и личность !

Боже мой, который раз слушаю и невозможно оторваться. Люка так загорается, увлекается своим рассказом, он нас просто гипнотизирует ))

Merci pour ce bon moment. Ça donne du sens et une chance à la musique . C’est avant tout de l’amour sincère de la musique. Belle découverte.

Очень интересный!

Ah oui là ! C’est sûr… on est largués!! Sous-titres …. au secours !!!
