ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
MAGNUS SVENSSON
Pianist Magnus Svensson grew up in a musical family in south western Sweden. His father is a carpenter and amateur violinist and it is from him that Magnus found his love of classical music.
But it wasn't until the age of 15 that Magnus began his serious piano studies. He gained wisdom and musical knowledge from professor Stella Tjajkowski at the Gothenburg School of Music. Tjajkowski remained his principal teacher until he graduated from the Royal Academy of Music in Stockholm with a post graduate diploma in music performance as well as the honorary medal for best student in 1998. During his graduate studies, Magnus studied with professor Staffan Scheja as well as Dimitri Bashkirov. He also took classes in lied-interpretation for Geoffrey Parsons in London.
Magnus has an extensive repertoire, with an emphasis on the Baroque and Classic period and has dedicated entire recitals to the works of Bach, Beethoven, Chopin, Mozart and Schumann. His concert engagements have taken him to the United States, Germany, France, England, the Netherlands, Italy, Hungary, Poland, Russia, the Baltic States and all the Scandinavian countries, including Iceland, the Faeroes and Greenland.
Magnus Svensson's two following recordings will feature music by Nordic composers and a portrait of Schumann.

Svensson Plays Mozart was recorded at the Nybrokajen 11 Concert Hall in Stockholm, Sweden, December 22, 23 and 25, 2002. Nybrokajen is a popular European recording venue. The piano in Nybrokajen is new Steinway Hamburg D.
The CD was produced by David G. Christensen of Seattle, Washington USA. Christensen focuses on classical solo and small ensemble production.
High resolution 24 bit technology was used to maximize sound quality and dynamic range. This technology adds over 30 decibels of dynamic range giving much more latitude in recording and providing a better defined signal for signal processing.
The entire post production and mastering process was done with the 24 bit recordings, and only at the last step was the signal processed down to the current commercial (redbook) 16 bit CD standards. High triangular dither with high-pass contour noise shaping was used in convert the 24 bit signal to 16 bid for the CD master. No other signal processing was used.

Superb playing
Playing Mozart is like dancing on a knife-edge and Mr Svensson does it superbly well. He has an unfailing sense of style, so essential in playing Mozart. The notes look so simple on paper but they can be lethal. Everything must be perfectly right, tempo, phrasing, dynamics, colour. Magnus Svensson has done it again and produced a magnificent performance of these wonderful pieces. I thoroughly recommend this cd to anyone who wants to hear world-class playing and muscianship.

Brilliant. Technical expertise like Serkin and emotion like Richter.
A refreshing rendition of Mozart. Recording is cristal clear and the Piantist is superb. I am looking forward to buying more releases of Magnus Svensson.
