Daniil Auner, ein junger Meistergeiger aus Wien
2014-03-07 Die Presse, Vienna
"

Im Souterrain des Musikvereins stellt sich der Nachwuchs vor, und man konstatiert: Wien schickt eminente Talente in die Welt. Mit dem britischen Pianisten Robin Green zauberte er wunderbare Stimmungen. 




Gleich mit Béla Bartóks Zweiter Rhapsodie griffen beide Interpreten ins pralle Musikantenleben: Auner versteht sich auf die raffinierte Dosierung des Vibratospiels und lässt dort, wo Bartók auf die bodenständige Tanzgeiger-Tradition seiner Heimat zurückgreift, sein Instrument wie eine Fiedel klingen. Green kontert mit stampfenden, doch elastisch rhythmisierten Akkorden und spornt den Primas energisch zur zündenden Schlussgeste.




Den rechten Ton finden Auner und Green auch für die doppelbödige, weil in Wahrheit hoch artifiziell auf einem – die Tonalität neu definierenden – Drahtseil balancierende Schlichtheit von Sergej Prokofieffs „Melodien op.35". Und Mozarts B-Dur-Sonate klingt bei den beiden wie eine anregende Lehrstunde über die Frage, was denn eigentlich das Wort klassischer Stil bedeuten könnte: Klarheit, schlichte Artikulation folgt den Spuren einer Musik, die Pointen mit stoischer Miene serviert, die nicht ahnen lässt, dass hinter jeder Ecke Überraschungen lauern können. Man marschiert mit zwei Naturburschen durch die Landschaft – und weiß sich sicher von ihnen über alle jäh auftauchenden Hürden gehievt, etwa die kühnen modulatorischen Abenteuer im Mittelteil des Andantes.

Für Eugene Ysayes „Kindertraum" und Richard Strauss' frühe Violinsonate entfesselt Daniil Auner dann alle Leuchtkraft und verführerische Klangfarbenkunst. Aus der Fiedel ist die Violine geworden, üppig spätromantische Tongebung verbündet sich mit dem vertrackt-vielstimmigen Klavierpart zur symphonischen Attitüde. Gemeinsam spannen ..

Dialog mit Mozart, Mozart: Violin Sonatas
2014-11-24 The Strad, London
"

Violinist Daniil Auner has spent time among the Mozart manuscripts, scrubbing away the corruptions of editions and accepted practice. He is hardly the first to do so, but there are various tweaks to the familiar repertoire on this excellent CD. He and his partner Robin Green have also made up stories to go with the music, but mercifully they don't show.






Auner begins with a bubbling performance of K377 in F major, playing with a light touch and an engaging tone, with nicely judged vibrato giving genial warmth. The balance and interplay between the players is exemplary, aided by the clear, close recording. There is a winning simplicity to these performances: the minuet of K377 is full of light and space, the dynamic range modest but with plenty of contrast.






The Allegro second movement of the G major Sonata K301 has an easy elegance, unhurried and courtly. In the central sonata on the disc, the B flat major K454, Mozart treats the players as equals, and here the playing has style and character in abundance. The lilting phrases of the Andante are beautifully pointed, and the final Allegretto, with its touches of Beethovenian humour, is sprightly and warm.
