World Premiera
Historical instruments

Performing with Lombard and Neaples mandolins
Ensemble Baschenis, Lombard and Neapolitan mandolin, violin, cello, theorbo

Concerto presents the first CD recording world premiere of Violin and Mandolin, accomplices and rivals : music by Giovanni Francesco Giuliani (1760-1818), and Giovanni Hoffmann (end XVIII century).
Giuliani was an excellent violinist, as well as a harpist, master of harpsichord and singing, while Hoffmann was one of the top virtuosi upon the mandolin. They let the two instruments converse together in the same high register. The instrumentarium (rich in instruments: mandolin, violin cello and theorbo) is marked by the presence of two different types of mandolin, the Lombard and the Neapolitan.
The Ensemble Baschenis took the manuscripts of the pieces directly from the archives of the Gesellschaft der Musikfreunde in Vienna.

World Premiere Recording

"Their work touches us because it is a mix of brutality, magic, sensuality and honesty - all of which are human." So spoke John Adams, one of the most important contemporary American composers, in comparing Neruda's poetry, Marquez's novels, Borges' writing and Piazzolla's music. All of these South American artists came to the attention of North American and European cultural circles almost simultaneously in the 1970's.
Astor Piazzolla (1921-1992) became popular in Europe when a few important performers - whose repertory was largely classical: Gidon Kremer, Yo Yo Ma, Daniel Barenboim - grew more interested in fusing musical styles. In fact the Argentinean musician's training was replete with classical influence. His music language has surely become very popular among various generations - it crosses various territories and music influences by conveying popular music together with a more cultured one: going from a kind of restlessness from the twentieth century to some Indios and African light influences based on ancient cultures from European descents who approached the river mouth of Rio de la Plata through various generation of migrants.
We experience the same cultural influence by listening to the Concerto by the Argentinean
contemporary composer Máximo Diego Pujol (Buenos Aires, 1957) which entitles the whole CD Luminosa Buenos Aires by being a world premiere too.
This very nice recording is enriched by awesomeness and quotations and brings to a sort of "sad feelings to be expressively transmitted through a dance" this is Tango, which starting from the beginning of the past century has been fascinating everyone in the world.

“As with so much in Brahms' life, the genesis of his Piano Quintet, op.34, was fraught with indecision and introspection...” Brahms first wrote this work scored for string quintet, and after taking to heart criticism from Joachim, he not only re-scored the work for two pianos, but destroyed the original string quintet manuscript. Published in 1874, this new du version was not without problems, and it was Clara Schumann who pointed these out, causing Brahms to set about re-arranging the music once more, this time for piano quintet.
This was no simple re-scoring, for the piano quintet medium has unique demands, but, at last, “Brahms had found the medium through which his material could speak most eloquently.” It is the quintet in this final guise that we know it best, and that the Schubert Ensemble deliver here on this recording in an assured and expressive performance, allowing the sophisticated detail of Brahms' writing to throw us into the depths of emotion he conjures up.

The London Conchord Ensemble are joined on this disc by the baritone William Dazeley, presenting a seductive collection of fascinating chamber works and songs written by three major 20th Century French chamber music composers.Sensual and intimate, these works epitomise these works epitomise the music of early 20th-century France, with their fluid lines and unusual textures, sensitively captured here by Conchord.

Though born in Berlin, Charles Loeffler claimed to hail from Alsace, so strongly did he identify with the French aesthetic. His Five Songs set poetry by French poets Baudelaire and Verlaine, and his musical style recalls Franck, Chausson and Debussy. Add to this a Russian sense of instrumental colour, and the result is a fascinating concoction of expressive and of expressive and evocative musical elements. Pierné's Sonata Da Camera is reminiscent of Debussy's seminal Sonata for Flute, Viola and Harp in its poignant colours and intricatetextures, while Duruflé's Prélude Recitatif et Variations reveals a different style from that of his Variations reveals a different style from that of his famous Requiem in writing that recalls Ravel.
Throughout this disc, Conchord plays with an effortless grace and flair, a finesse that perfectly, a finesse that perfectly communicates this exquisite selection of music.

Cheryl Frances-Hoad has a unique and special compositional voice, recently becoming the youngest composer to win two prizes in the same year at the British Composer Awards, in 2010.

Since winning the BBC Young Composer Competition in 1996, at the age of 15, Cherylʼs works have garnered high praise and awards from all quarters. Over recent years, she has had numerous notable successes, with commissions including solo, chamber, orchestral and choral works, as well as opera.
Champs Hill Records is delighted to present this collection of Cherylʼs chamber music, performed in many cases by the musicians who commissioned and gave the premiere performances of the works.

“The Glory Tree had remarkable scoring, stratospheric singing and was performed with shamanic authority, her final scream reverberating through the cloisters.” Keith Bruce, The Herald.

The songs of the title work on this disc - The Glory Tree - are arresting settings, in original Anglo-Saxon, from The Dream of the Rood and Judith, treated as the utterances of Shamanic ritual.
Shamanism also provides the inspiration for the solo violin work The Snow Woman written for, and played here by, Natalia Lomeiko.

These works are typical of the fertile soil for musical invention which Cheryl Frances-Hoad finds in literary inspiration. Stories, poems or literary ideas have provided the spark for many works on this disc, performed by exceptionally talented musicians, including Nicholas Daniel (oboe), the Lenvai String Trio, the Kriesler Ensemble, Leonid Gorokhov (ʻcello), the London Mozart Trio, Ensemble na Mara, and others.
The disc is packed with 77mins of music, all newly recorded in the Music Room at Champs Hill.

The Emanuel Ensemble - a flexible chamber group - here present an enticing recital programme for flute, cello and piano, showcasing the undoubted talents of these three acclaimed young players.

The brilliant cellist Louisa Tuck is the youngest Principal of any UK orchestra, and in addition to the Trio repertoire on this disc she also performs Schumann’s Adagio and Allegro for cello and piano, with the sought-after young pianist John Reid. Requiring considerable virtuosity in the concluding portion, and a projection of dreamy Romantic feeling in the opening, this work is of a perfect two-part structure. Anna Stokes, a much in-demand flautist, takes the solo role too, in Borne’s bravura Fantasie Brilliante, composed on themes from Bizet’s Carmen - its high point the increasingly flashy variations on the celebrated Habenera theme. This exuberant CD opens with Piazolla’s La muerte del Angel, and its decisive, thrusting climax sets up the rest of the disc. Gaubert’s souful Piece Romantique (also written for the CD’s central combination of flute, cello and piano) has a lyric charm and an eventide contentment; in stark contrast to the joyous Trio by Nikolai Kapustin. Seemingly improvisatory, this three-movement piece works out its themes thoroughly and fantastically, with walking basses, hypnotic ostinatos, and solo spots’ for each instrument. In turns languidly nostalgic and capricious, this jazz-based Trio is one of the most popular works of Kapustin’s output, and rounds off with an insouciant and irresistible display of animal vitality.

As Louise Farrenc’s work is being rediscovered, it looks as though she may have been the most important female composer of the first half of the 19th century. Her Trio in E minor, performed by the Emanuel Ensemble for this recital, is written in full classical sonata form, showing considerable contrapuntal artistry. The work concludes in effervescent high spirits, bringing proceedings to a close in high good humour.
