Recordings that include strings quartets by Schoenberg, Berg, and Webern are common, but an album that includes music for quartet and voice by each of them is a rarity. Schoenberg's Second String Quartet, with a part for soprano in its third and fourth movements, is standard repertoire, but the version of Berg's Lyric Suite with a vocal part in the final movement is highly unusual, and Webern's bagatelle with voice, an unpublished movement apparently once intended to be part of the Six Bagatelles, Op. 9, receives what is probably its first recording. Novelty aside, the high standards of these performances make this a formidable release. Founded just before the turn of the millennium, Quatuor Diotima plays with the assurance and mutual understanding of a seasoned ensemble. The quartet has a lean, clean sound and the ensemble is immaculate, playing with exquisite expressiveness, an ideal combination for this repertoire.

The acclaimed recorder player Dorothee Oberlinger and her ensemble 1700 team up with famous countertenor Andreas Scholl for this inspiring new album featuring the work of J.S. Bach. The album includes arias from Bach cantatas for alto, a concerto for harpsichord arranged for flute, the cantata BWV 170 “Vergnügte Ruh” and the famed Brandenburg concertos No. 2 and No. 4. Dorothee Oberlinger is one of the most amazing discoveries of recent years, an expressive virtuoso who - quite rightly - received numerous awards while still very young. Today she is seen as one of the world’s greatest recorder-players, earning her unanimous acclaim for solo recitals at festivals all over Europe, in America and Japan, for example at the Ludwigsburger Schlossfestspiele, the Musikfestspiele Potsdam and the Settimane Musicale Stresa. Born in Germany, Andreas Scholl's early musical training was with the Kiedricher Chorbuben. He later studied under Richard Levitt and René Jacobs at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis. A Grammy nominated artist, he has won numerous awards and prizes including the prestigious ECHO Award for his composition The Emperor's New Clothes and The Nightingale released on Deutsche Grammphon.

The themes of the songs usually centre around themes common in Gothic fiction such as love, vampirism, sexual fetishism, death, and immortality. The band calls their musical style dark pop…

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach is the most famous of the sons of J.S. Bach. His magisterial oeuvre contains, notably, a large number of concertos for various instruments and keyboard pieces. But the composer also excelled at vocal music, thus continuing in the family tradition by composing, among other genres, sacred and secular cantatas and songs. His works respect the rules of Baroque style while also hinting at the dawn of the Classical style subsequently represented by Haydn and Mozart. Café Zimmermann has been including the music of C. P. E. Bach in its programmes for years, notably in a recording (ALPHA 107) that marked a turning point in the discography. A Leipzig newspaper wrote of the ensembles interpretation of works by Emanuel Bach: Anyone who has heard the sensational Café Zimmermann in this music, the brilliant, ardent spirit of their playing, their profusion of colours . . . will want to hear more of this composer. Here is a further opportunity to do so, in partnership with the English tenor Rupert Charlesworth, who recorded his first album in 2015 (Nocturnes, ZZT 355).

As the band and its composers did so well on that album, there is an attempt to merge and blend the musical traditions of different cultures and ethnicities–here more toward West-East, Celtic and Arabic…

The film received a pasting from UK critics but as the soundtrack chooses from a vast archive of great performances, it’s possible to retrieve something from the experience. The opening track, the Grosse Fuge, is a bold choice given the wider audience for whom this soundtrack is aiming. It receives a magnificent performance from the Takács Quartet which is as finely attuned to the music’s jagged outcrops as its sheltered byways. The uninterrupted flow of the sweet and soulful second movement of the third Razumovsky is pure poetry in their hands. Ashkenazy gives a brilliant but never rushed performance of the finale to the early Sonata in C minor and his straightforward manner in the Arietta from Beethoven’s last sonata is illuminated by the very clear Decca recording. Haitink’s performance of the finale of the Ninth Symphony with the Royal Concertgebouw and a quartet of soloists led by Lucia Popp does not storm the heavens and I don’t ever recall being so aware of this movement’s proceeding by paragraphs. However, it would seem to have found a comfortable place in a well planned and wide-ranging celebration of Beethoven’s genius.

Long considered a second-rate Schumann in the pantheon of the Great German Composers, listeners these days want to embrace the greatness of Felix Mendelssohn. They want to hear ecstatically joyful Italian Symphonies, passionately compelling Scottish Symphonies, luminously hilarious Midsummer Night's Dream Overtures, brilliantly blissful Violin Concertos, and soulfully expressive yet deeply intellectual string quartets so they can raise Mendelssohn to the front ranks of the Great German Composers.

Unfortunately, these are not those performances. The Henschel Quartet is a fine ensemble with plenty of energy and power and it tears into Mendelssohn with a strong tone and firm control. But too often it soars over the surface of the music, leaving the soulful depths untouched. In these recordings of the E flat major and F minor String Quartets, the Henschel pushes Mendelssohn's opening Allegros and forces his closing Molto allegro and Allegro molto, missing the tension of the music in the drive to the double bar. In the Andante espressivo and the Adagio, the Henschel takes the tempos a bit too quick and stays a little ahead of the beat, missing the intensity of the music in its need to keep the music moving. For soulfully expressive and deeply intellectual recordings of Mendelssohn's string quartets, try the Budapest Quartet of the Alban Berg Quartet, or, for something more authentic, the Mosaique Quartet. Arte Nova's sound is too loud and too forward.
