In Rossini’s year Concerto Classics is pleased to announce a multi-year agreement with one of the most prestigious European orchestral groupings: the Orchestra della Svizzera Italiana (OSI), conducted by Markus Poschner and accompanied from time to time by important soloists, is committed, from year 2018 until the whole of year 2020, to the exploration and production of a considerable part of Rossini’s repertoire that is still unedited or that has been rarely performed. The OSI has been making their presence felt on the European music scene with performances that are both innovative and persuasive. The OSI has two main performing venues: one at the Sala Teatro LAC, where it is resident orchestra and performs with leading international artists; the other at the Auditorio Stelio Molo RSI in Lugano, which provides a performing space for different kinds of musicians with distinctive repertoires.

Classical | Label: harmonia mundi

Beyond their lifelong interest in keyboard instruments of all types (organ, harpsichord and clavichord in the case of Bach; modern piano as a percussion instrument in the case of Bartók), other shared concerns connect these two giants of classical music who at first glance appear to be polar opposites. The juxtaposition of the two composers is not the least appeal of this album which also marks Julien Libeer’s first project for harmonia mundi: this ardent advocate of a clear and direct approach deftly combines keen intuition with a sense of formal rigour to bring four masterful examples of the ‘suite’ genre into a dialogue spanning across the centuries that set them apart.

We are so excited and thrilled to finally reveal this project, which we have been imagining and developing for months… « Nos 4 saisons », our four seasons! We heard The Four Seasons for the first time before we even knew how to talk, and the sound of the violin is one of our first memories. It's as if we always knew we would return to this repertoire one day, that we would happily dive back into our childhood. Vivaldi has laid the foundations of all modern music with his work, and if you listen well, you find his harmonies in all of today’s pop music. With this album, we built our own bridge between classical music that made us grow and the song that has soothed us for a long time. It was obvious for us to record these four seasons together, as sisters, with our common vision of the work.” – Camille & Julie Berthollet

’Heroic hymns of battle’ was how the American critic James Huneker visualized Chopin’s polonaises. ‘In them’, Liszt wrote evocatively in his Life of Chopin, ‘are to be found embodied the noblest traditional feelings of the Poland of a bygone age; through them breathe the stern resolve and the reflective gravity of the Poles of other days. Usually of a warlike character, bravery and valour are in these polonaises rendered with a simplicity of expression which was a distinctive characteristic of this warlike people. They bring before the imagination with vivid intensity the ancient Poles as they are described in their chronicles.’

Composed in 1915, Claude Debussy’s piano etudes represent some of the composer's most adventurous and unconventional writing. Paul Jacobs’s recordings of these pieces garnered international renown upon their initial release; Gramophone declared they “should be heard by everyone.” This release also features En Blanc et Noir, a piece, from the same year, for two pianos, performed by Jacobs and Gilbert Kalish.

François Couperin, in the opinion of his preface to" the Apotheosis of Lully published in 1725, confirms the possible use of two harpsichords to perform all of his pieces in trio… Once again, the Podeur-Bass Duo takes us into their spells where "we are confronted with a world known and never heard, unprecedented and of a vigorous beauty."

Late 1970s electronica from the Soviet Union / Estonia. Estonian musician Sven Grünberg released a remarkable album entitled 'Hingus' in 1981. The 23 minute title track invites us into a fascinating, futuristic world of sound, laced with Far Eastern tonality, embellished with a church organ, extremely rare synthesizers and extraordinary percussion effects. The other two tracks, no less superb, are more in the stylistic tradition of the Berliner Schule / Berlin School (Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream).

After 45 years as one of the world's top chamber ensembles, the Guarneri is bowing out. Its final CD tackles a slightly offbeat repertoire — a quartet by Kodaly, two by Dohnanyi — with zesty soulfulness and bite. If the group must retire, this is the way to do it.

Pioneering artist in the field of abstract-electronic-retropop instrumentation. Teddy LASRY Also known as a composer of contemporary classical music and scores for modern theatre and cine-art. He is also known for his compositions for Christian VANDER's MAGMA. After a first jazzy-groovy pop album in collaboration with other artists (Claude Engel…) he released his first LP in solo entitled "Tutti Fluti" (1975) which reveals a mix between soulful jazz elements and electronic spacey vibes. Published in 1976 "E = MC²" can be considered as a masterpiece in the world of cosmic synthedelica. "La femme qui venait d'ailleurs" (1977) also contains absolutely classic cosmic themes for long synthesized strings and astral-like electro moves, somtimes sustained by strangey exotic jazzy sounds.

This album is intended to be your guiding light through days of darkness. The second album (CD and LP) by Swedish progressive jazzrockers HOOFFOOT mixes spontaneity with carefully crafted themes and the music falls into place as natural and prophetic as the album title; “THE LIGHTS IN THE AISLE WILL GUIDE YOU”. Although not a concept album as such, maybe the four instrumental compositions on this album are all about navigating a world in flux? There is definitely a sense of constant change and movement in the music. Just like a spy novel from 1976-1979 you want to find out where it is all heading. Why those specific years?

Runaway Totem is a progressive Italian band of long standing, which was formed in 1988 in Riva del Garda (TN) after an accurate project by Cahal de Betel (Roberto Gottardi) e Mimir de Bennu (René Modena). The Elements which compose Runaway Totem have taken possession of different people and musicians over the time. It is important to understand that their interchange was not due to human conflicts, but rather Runaway Totem’s will.
