The first five volumes (9.70307–9.70311) of Boris Giltburg’s traversal of Beethoven’s 32 piano sonatas have been received with much acclaim. ‘[Giltburg brings] us closer to the spontaneous feel of a live performance… on this form Naxos’s cycle looks set to be something special.’ (Malcolm Hayes, BBC Music Magazine, on Sonatas Nos. 4–7 / 9.70308). ‘The slow movements, which Giltburg plays without affectation but with all the more sensitive differentiation and intelligence, are very beautiful and gripping (Remy Franck, Pizzicato on 9.70308). ‘The B flat Sonata… typifies what one might hope for in a traversal of familiar repertory by an outstanding young artist: fresh perspective on terrain one thought one knew. (Patrick Rucker, Gramophone, on Sonatas Nos. 8–11 / 9.70309).

Their passion for the life and works of women composers connects the musicians of trioW. The fascinating life-stories and compositional tours de force prompted Katharina Wimmer, Stefan Welsch and Ingrid Wendel to include more and more of these works in their concert repertoire. Since the Romantic period in spite of the prejudice against women who composed some compositions by women were justifiably regarded with great interest, most, however, disappeared again relatively quickly from the concert halls. This disc allows us to enjoy the sound of these Unheard-of Treasures for violin and piano, for cello and piano as well as for piano trio: Amanda Maier (18531894), Clara Schumann (18191896), Amy Beach (18671944), Lili Boulanger (18931918) und Dora Pejaevi (18851923).

Toucher Bach: for us this means working towards the inner core of the music, towards the mutually supportive network of voices that ensures the stability of the counterpoint in an artistic form. Great architectural masterpieces have done the same for thousands of years: the columns of the ancient Egyptians, the facades of the Rococo period and the shapes designed by Zaha Hadid cause even monumental buildings to appear in an alternative aggregate state that is both alive and flowing.

Dix ans après la conception du projet Odisea Negra, Simone Rubino et Eduardo Egüez à la tête de l'Ensemble la Chimera se retrouvent pour donner vie à un nouveau voyage qui réunit deux mondes, à première vue, stylistiquement éloignés mais unis par une technique de composition ancienne : le contrepoint.Johann Sebastian Bach comme Astor Piazzolla sont deux maîtres de la polyphonie, et ils sont représentés ici par Simone Rubino et son italianisme (n’oublions pas que l’Italie a immensément inspiré le style de Bach). Par ailleurs, Eduardo Egüez partage avec Piazzolla sa ville natale : Buenos Aires.Ensemble, Simone Rubino et Eduardo Egüez offrent un bouquet de merveilleuses pièces des deux auteurs : citons le Concerto brandebourgeois n° 3 BWV 1048, le Concerto pour violon en mi majeur BWV 1042 (dans lequel Simone tient la partie du violon solo) pour Bach ; Fuga y Misterio, Oblivion ou Verano Porteño pour Piazzolla. Le programme comprend également une fugue dans le style tango composée par l'Argentin Leonardo Teruggi, contrebassiste de l'Ensemble La Chimera.

Genre: Classical / Label: Stradivarius

This recording contains Francesco Pennisi’s (Acireale, 11 February 1934 – Rome, 8 October 2000) complete works for solo piano, according to the latest catalogue. The piano compositions have rarely been performed and studied even less frequently, for many reasons. They are concise and liberated at first sight from a serious commitment to composition and open to ‘other’ dimensions compared to his main production, since they unfold playfully, almost with nostalgia. This recording not only has the merit of restoring Pennisi’s piano repertoire to its full entirety for the first time, but it illustrates its due importance in the composer’s active pursuit of an underlying texture of echoes, sounds, and resonances.

La viole de gambe connaît un réel engouement en Angleterre et en France de la fin du seizième au dix-huitième siècle. L'instrument continue de nous émouvoir par son langage hautement expressif. Ce dialogue entre deux violes évoque cet âge d'or, avec un florilège d'oeuvres de Morley, Hume, East, Locke, Simpson, Couperin, Sainte-Colombe, Marais, Boismortier et Caix d'Herveloix.

Trop rares sont ceux qui auront su se hisser à la hauteur de ce monument statufié de son vivant, n’en restant qu’à la surface quand cette personnalité aux multiples facettes invite à une lecture autrement plus complexe. C’est cet Himalaya qu’a osé gravir Louise Jallu. Loin de sombrer dans la pâle copie, Louise Jallu ajoute ses commentaires, ouvrant notamment des espaces propres à l’improvisation, quitte à prendre le parti pris d’une certaine irrévérence pour faire d’autant mieux preuve de toute sa déférence envers l’Argentin. Histoire de coller à la singulière post-modernité qui habitait son oeuvre. Comme une évidence.

The figure humaine kammerchor under the direction of Denis Rouger devotes its new album “Wo die Zitronen blühen…” once again to the wonderful German and French songs of the Romantic period. In these sensitive arrangements for choir and piano, the singers take the listeners down the most diverse paths of love in the poetry of both these countries. The well-known art songs, originally composed for solo voice and piano, are experienced in a completely new way when chorally interpreted. True gems of these two great European musical cultures have been selected for this recording, with songs by Georges Bizet, Gabriel Fauré, Henri Duparc, Fanny Hensel, Camille Saint-Saëns and Clara Schumann, among others. In addition, original choral works by Johannes Brahms, Hugo Wolf and Gabriel Fauré can be heard. The outstanding chamber choir is accompanied by the pianists Julia Kammerlander and Katharina Schlenker. The additional horns heard in some of the compositions complete the Romantic sound world.

Tibor Harsányi, a student of Zoltán Kodály at the Budapest Conservatory, lived in France from 1923 where he became one of the leading expatriate composers to form the group known as "L’École de Paris". As the 4 Morceaux show, his piano music is notable for its variety of character and genre. The Piano Sonata reveals his enthusiasm for dance rhythms and for joyful lyricism as well as quietly sombre elements, while the Burlesques flirt with jazz. The Piano Suite conjures up a vivid series of atmospheres in a work that is songlike, dissonant and ambient.

Hardly any biographical information about the composer Martin Christian Schultze has been handed down to us. On the cover of the Trattamento dellharmonia, which was engraved and published in Paris in 1773, we find his name with the initials 'M.C.' and 'D.B.' ('M.C. Schultze D.B.'), which according to the RISM signifies 'Martin Christian Schultze from Berlin.' The six symphonies contained in this collection may be understood as harmonic treatises. They have been written very much in the Italian style, and in them we find very many polyrhythmic elements running through all the movements for example, frequent triplets against sixteenths. In addition, at the time Schultze must have had an outstanding gambist by his side who was able to render this extremely demanding gamba part. The violin part with many double stops and virtuosic passages likewise presupposes some talent. By contrast, the flute part more probably would have been written for an amateur. Here these pieces are interpreted by the Klingekunst Ensemble, whose members base their work on well-founded occupation with historical performance practice but also always assign foremost importance to vibrant musical communication.

In Hungary at the beginning of the 20th century, Béla Bartók and Zoltán Kodály were collecting and making analytical studies of Hungarian folk music, creating a new interest in the native music of their homeland. This album, featuring rarely heard works from the succeeding generation of Hungarian composers, presents a distinctive portrait of the Hungarian music scene from the interwar years to the 1950s, by composers who faced discrimination or paid the ultimate price for their Jewish heritage.

Up & Coming Jazz Talents is a project where Bohuslän Big Band meets young, sharp jazz musicians. Together we play music that the talents choose. The project was started in 2013 and returns every year. The meeting between the band and the young musicians creates new musical exchanges and also opportunities for future collaboration. Several of the young musicians we played with earlier in the project have either returned as guest artists or substitutes in the Bohuslän Big Band. This album resulted in the 2020 edition of Up & Coming Jazz Talents in fantastic concerts at Vara Konserthus and Nefertiti where the audience got to hear tomorrow's jazz stars. His interest - late in life - in popular song and his high TV profile in much loved opera and stage show numbers. He retained his inimitable vocal timbre with it's positively sensual beauty of sound throughout his long singing career. This "gold standard" was attained at best by Fritz Wunderlich in the German-speaking world. Schock's personality and his stage presence assured him a loyal following; later generations can form their own picture with the aid of the present recordings.
