„Recording an album entirely devoted to Händel is an unmissable opportunity for any singer who loves Baroque music, but especially for a countertenor. In fact the sheer choice of arias, each more wonderful than the one before, is staggering, but does mean that every singer can find the numbers best suited to his or her voice and personality. Although it’s only in the last few years that I’ve been able to play the big Händel roles on stage – Sesto in Giulio Cesare, for example, or Ruggiero in Alcina – for this recital I wanted to choose a selection of arias from less well-known operas.

Composer Charles Koechlin, 1867-1950, one of the underrated geniuses of modern music, has written some of the most challenging, thrilling and interesting music for the modern flute.

This new album of harpsichordist Catalina Vicens is a unique, multifaceted musical and poetic project. First, it features the world’s oldest playable harpsichord, a priceless treasure that dwells today in the National Music Museum of Vermillion, SD. She plays music from Naples, Italy from around 1525, the year when the instrument that she plays was actually built in Naples. Secondly, Ms Vicens conceived an imaginary tale of the life and story of that very instrument, partly based on historical facts, partly on poetic inspiration emerging from her encounter with this priceless treasure of a historical harpsichord.

Under the baton of James Levine, Gotterdammerung ("The Twilight of the Gods") has a narrative drive that reminds us that, of all the individual operas in Wagner's Ring cycle, this is the one most about human emotions and the one in which its heroes are pulled into a world where they are most vulnerable to them. Siegfried Jerusalem as Siegfried and Hildegard Behrens as Brunnhilde never, in a sense, stand a chance: they are innocents who allow themselves to be manipulated not merely by the villainous Hagen, but by the ordinary venality of Gunther and his sister Gutrune, who goes along with a dirty little scheme to get what she wants, and is destroyed by it.

Jerry Madrawski is a very popular figure in the accordion community. He has recorded numerous albums (above all featuring the music of Polish composers); since 1980, he has been involved in educational activities. After many years of a virtuosic career, his artistic activity took a significant turn toward composing. This release is a documentary by Jerzy Madrawski. The title ‘Interference’ can be understood as overlapping of many stylistic features, as a result of which a new, comprehensive and harmonious effect arises. Madrawski’s work is impossible to label with a specific style.

Perhaps the most characteristic feature of the 20th-century musical landscape is the stylistic pluralism, visible not only across numerous schools and movements, but also in the language of individual artists who, unrestricted by the prevailing composition rules, would reach for various means of musical expression. The most crucial issues addressed by post-Romantic composers included the sound colour, important both for pre-war impressionists and representatives of sonorism.

Karel Mark Chichon was Principal Conductor of the German Radio Philharmonic Orchestra Saarbrücken Kaiserslautern from 2011 to 2017; the programmes he presented during his seasons there were celebrated by the public and lauded by the critics in equal measure. One magnificent result of this period is the present recording with works by Stravinsky, Prokofiev and de Falla. All are ballets whose rhythms made an enormously modern, almost revolutionary effect at the time; the dancers had quite a lot to learn about how to coordinate their movements to this music.

Since its founding in 2003, the Poulenc Trio has established itself as one of the worlds finest ensembles in the lesser-known domain of double-reed chamber music. The Trios members are not only first-rate ensemble players but are also prominent virtuosos of their respective instruments. In the groups second release on Delos, the idiomatic qualities of double-reed instruments are particularly well-served by the pair of trios by Francis Poulenc and Jean Francais.

The latest striking release from soprano Roberta Invernizzi acts as a lightning conductor for this new vocal extravaganza from Glossa devoted to the Italian Baroque composer Francesco Gasparini. Invernizzi finds herself very much home both in the music, but also, so noticeably, with the words: librettos from the likes of Zeno, Piovene or Salvi find this singer exercising her customary intelligence.

John McCabe was almost a legend in his own lifetime, acknowledged as one of the foremost British composers of our time and also as a brilliant pianist who championed the work of many contemporary composers. Following his recent death, 19 composers wrote pieces in tribute for an ensemble of clarinet, recorder, viola and piano (and variations of the mix) which are now collected into this album which is lovingly dedicated to Johns memory and also to his widow Monica, who was a tireless support and who now works to promote his musical legacy and we are grateful for her contributions to this project.
