Dmitry Shostakovich - "Sofia" String Quartet

Dmitry Shostakovich - "Sofia" String Quartet
ID: GD168
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Quartet

"Sofia" String Quartet has recorded three of the late quartets by the great Russian composer, a brilliant expression of the his talent and sensitivity. Each of them reveals the richness of the composer's creative imagination, demonstrates original solutions of form, structure, modes and metric rhythms. Quartet No. 8 is of programmatic character and is related to one of the leading themes in the music of Shostakovich - the theme of war, anti-humanism and the staunch support of the idea of peace and humanity. Quartets Nos. 10 and 11 are composed for friends of Shostakovich, associated with his personal life and creative career. Of particular interest is No. 11, consisting of 7 movements, each of which with an emotional context present in its title. The performance of the works by "Sofia" String Quartet is remarkable for its technical virtuosity and freedom - each of the four instrumentalists is a superb musician - with a mastery in the rendition of the multitude of nuances and moods, varying from grief and tragic resignation to joyful intoxication, joke and emotional outbursts. A compact disc, which bears evidence to the high professional standards of the "Sofia" Quartet and brings the joy of feeling the magnificence and the shattering power of the music of Dmitry Shostakovich.

Interprets: Sofia String Quartet

Lachenmann chose a text by Leonardo da Vinci:"...but when I had remained silent for a fairly long time, all at once two feelings awoke in me. Fear and desire. Fear of the cave's looming darkness, but the desire to see with my own eyes what marvels may lie within..." and there are many marvels to discover on this exceptional recording.

Includes booklet with texts by Helmut Lachenmann and Kurt Gerstenberg

The Ysaye Connection  - Raphael Wallfisch - cello, John York- piano,

Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Piano and Cello

Franck, C: Cello Sonata in A major
Lekeu: Cello Sonata in G
Ysaye: Cello Sonata Op. 28 /Rêve d'enfant, Op. 14

Raphael Wallfisch (cello) & John York (piano)

Raphael Wallfisch and John York perform sonatas by Eugene Ysaye, and two fellow Belgian composers most associated with him, Cesar Franck and Guillaume Lekeu.
Cesar Franck’s ever popular Sonata in A is given a stirring performance here by the Wallfisch/York duo in their first recording for Cello Classics. Recorded in the peace and tranquillity of Champs Hill, West Sussex this is the first recording Rahael made using the Stradivarius cello that once beolnged to his former teacher, Amaryllis Fleming. By a happy coincidence the wonderful studio in Champ’s Hill has recently aquired the painting of Amaryllis by Augustus John, which was hung behind the musicians and watched over the entire proceedings!
Less familiar, even to violinists, for whom it was written, is Guillaume Lekeu’s Sonata in G major. The composer lived to be only 24 years old, but in that short time wrote some of the most passionately lyrical music of the age. This is a work that deserves to be far better known.
The remaining works on this recording are both by Ysaye himself. The Sonata for unaccompanied cello is a real tour-de-force and seldom heard on the concert stage. The Reve d’Enfant is played here in an arrangement for cello and piano by John York.

LeFanu: Lullaby & Nocturne
Lutyens: Trio
Marsh, R: Ferry Music
Powers: Trio
Williams, Graham: The Song Within

Victoria Soames Samek - clarinet Julia Vohralik - cello Jonathan Higgins - piano
Full listing Elisabeth Lutyens - Trio; Graham Williams - Song Within; Roger Marsh - Ferry Music; Nicola LeFanu - Lullaby & Nocturne; Anthony Powers - Trio

Over the last decade The Mühlfeld Ensemble has played a leading role in commissioning new music featuring the clarinet- particularly from English composers. On this new release it presents five of the best works by composers of different generations.

Elisabeth Lutyens (1906-1983) wrote film music for Hammer horror movies to pay the rent but in her concert music was adventurous and visionary. This was especially true of her later years where she developed a style that was spare and poignant as can be seen in her Trio (1979).

F. Liszt - Alexander Strukov, piano

F. Liszt  -  Alexander Strukov, piano
ID: CR135
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Piano

The name of Alexander Strukov means a brilliant virtuosity, perfect technique, the sound of the Konstantin Igumnov school - soft, singing, and deep. His performers’ conceptions are always thought over, and the musical forms are well-balanced. His bright temperament is controlled by a powerful intellect; he's got a great erudition. This is what has always enraptured me in Alexander Strukov's performances. I remember him as a young man who had just entered the Moscow Conservatory (in 1983); before that, he studied with Evgeni Timakin, a pupil of Konstantin Igumnov, an outstanding musician and the Central Music School professor. He also studied with the wonderful Lev Vlassenko, the unforgettable musician and my friend; Alexander took his teacher's perfect taste and artistry. This allowed him to repeat Lev Vlassenko's success, winning Ferenc Liszt International piano competition in Budapest (1991). Alexander gives lots of concerts in Germany, Italy, Czech Republic, Hungary, Switzerland, Japan and other countries. He had played with many eminent conductors, among them - Vladimir Ziva, Veronika Dudarova, Pavel Yadykh, Andras Ligeti, Roland Bader, Gianmario Cavallaro, Mikhail Pletnev and others. He gives a lot of master classes in Russia and abroad. Alexander Strukov is also a fine composer. He is the author of two piano concertos, piano quintet, other chamber and piano works. In 2006 he won the Moscow Conservatory competition for the best cadenza to a Mozart concerto. One of his cadenzas - to the third movement of the Piano concerto no. 21 - I have recorded on a CD; I am also going to perform his cadenzas to the Sixth Concerto. Professor Vlassenko invited the young laureate to become his assistant at the Moscow Conservatory. Since 2004, he works as my assistant. At present, he has got his own class and a rank of an assistant professor. I greatly appreciate his skills as a pianist and pedagogue; the students admire him, he plays wonderfully, and I am proud that he became a member of our "Konstantin Igumnov" department
