Peter Ablinger - Voices and Piano, for piano and loudspeaker

Peter Ablinger - Voices and Piano, for piano and loudspeaker
ID: KAI0013082
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Piano

Voices and Piano, written for Nicolas Hodges, is an extensive cycle of pieces, each for a single recorded voice, mostly of a well-known celebrity, and piano. The cycle is still in progress and should eventually include about 80 pieces/voices (arround 4 hours of music). The work is always meant to occur as a selection from the whole. At present I like to write works where the whole should not be presented at once. The whole should remain the whole, and what we hear is just a part of it. (Peter Ablinger)

Moscow Trio : Vladimir Ivanov, violin / Alexander Bonduriansky, piano / Mikhail Utkin, cello

Valery Tarakanov was born in 1934. Both his parents were scientists specializing in medicine; they were great music-lovers and it was a family tradition to play classical music at home. Valery Tarakanov graduated from school with a Gold medal. Later, he studied at the Moscow State University Mechanics and Mathematics Faculty (graduated with distinction in 1956). He followed the postgraduate course at the Mathematics Institute of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR. Since 1961, Valery Tarakanov works in the same Institute; at present, he is one of the leading scientists at the Institute, doctor of mathematics, the author of several monographs and more than 150 scientific works.
Mr. Tarakanov's musical talent led him to the Vladimir Stassov music School where he studied as a violinist and later to the Ippolitov-Ivanov Musical College. Later on, he improved his skills, taking lessons from many prominent piano and music theory professors. He was especially interested in composition and studied with famous composers Andrei Volkonsky, Eduard Khagagortyan and Edisson Denissov. His brother, Mikhail Tarakanov, an eminent musicologist, also had important impact on his creative life. Among those who played significant part in Valery Tarakanov's musical development was, surprisingly, his mathematics professor Igor Schafarevich, an outstanding scientist, member of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR. The composer himself thinks that he awes to academic Schafarevich his ability to feel the logic of musical form, construct and organize the music (an absolutely necessary part of composing, which does not affect the emotional side).

The name of Valery Tarakanov is well known in the musical world. His compositions - the opera "Antony and Cleopatra", Vespers, Liturgy, violin and cello concertos, vocal cycles, romances and works for choir - are performed in the important concert halls of Moscow and other Russian cities. Many popular radio stations - "Orpheus", "Radio of Russia" and others, include them in their programs. Among the performers - most eminent Russian musicians, orchestras, choirs: the choir of the Academy of the Choir art, "The Seasons" Chamber orchestra, the soloists of the famous "Moscow trio" - Alexander Bonduriansky, Vladimir Ivanov and Mikhail Utkin, Mikhail Tolpygo and many others. Since 1995 Valery Tarakanov is a member of the Composer's Union of Russia; he participates in its musical and social activities.
The music of this exceptionally talented composer, bright and sincere, expressive and highly intellectual, cannot leave the listener indifferent; his works have become widely known among those who love the musical art.

Let us be like the sun for voice, violin and piano, op.29 in four movements on the verses by Konstantin Balmont. The first piece, "The Dead Ships", is mournful and meditative. The dead ships symbolize the souls of the people who have passed away. All human deeds and hopes seem to be vain. The second movement, "Eternal Aspiration", in contrast with the first one, is inspired by the idea of creative activity and thirst for knowledge. The third ("Only where you are") and fourth ("Let us be like the sun") embody the love for God and aspiration for eternity. The violin is not just accompanying the soloist; the violin part is elaborate and quite original. The third movement, for instance, is a dialogue of tenor and violin; the piano does not participate.

Sonata for violin and cello in four movements, op. 27.
Sonata is a duo of the two string instruments, which contains four movements. The music depicts a panorama of the relationship of the two people, two loving partners, husband and wife. The first movement is a lyrical dialogue, full of tenderness and harmony, embodying love, unity of purpose. In the second movement, there is an agitated atmosphere of a heated argument, with some elements of obstinacy and even with something capricious in it, but without any estrangement. The music of the third movement - Menuet - is full of mild lyricism. The energetic music of the Finale sometimes reminds the "arguments" of the second movement. In the end, the theme of unity and love from the first movement appears. But in the last bars we hear another funny "hot discussion".

A Chest of Fairytales. Trio for piano, violin and cello ¹ 2 in four movements. Each movement has a program: it is based upon one of the famous children's fairytales. The first movement embodies the tale of the Little Red Riding Hood. The music depicts all the details of the story just as they happen. In the other movements, the music doesn't follow al the events, showing only some of the episodes. The second part, Thumbelina, depicts the birth of the little girl, her games and songs, boating in a plate full of water, and then the arrival of the King of Elves and his proposal, the elves greeting their queen. The third movement is dedicated to the story of the Sleeping Beauty. The music embodies the terror and embarrassment when the Princess pricks her finger, the spellbound kingdom that falls asleep and the magic forest that grows up around the castle, and in the end - the anticipation of the kingdom's future awakening. The fourth movement - "Little Muck - the royal footman". Little Muck is running unceasingly, desperately in his magic shoes, until he remembers the spell that can stop them. The music of these four pieces is based upon the rhythms of the four old dances: Passepied, Courante, Siciliana and Galop. The parts of all instruments are very elaborate.

The Seasons. Suite for cello and piano in four movements, op. 24. A traditional theme - human reaction to the periods of the year's circle that follow each other. Four pieces of the suite embody the four seasons.

The spring. The ebullient young forces of the Nature arise after the long winter's sleep, sweeping off all the obstacles in their way. The picture of spring is embodied in the energetic and impetuous music of this piece, full of contrasts of musical themes, with the bright virtuosity of the cello part.

The summer. A nocturne that depicts a poetic night scene. Now, when the nature is rich and abundant, in the deep of the night a love scene takes place. Passionate words of confession, declarations of love, tender whisper of the two lovers are heard.

The autumn. An intermezzo. The music of this movement is full of sadness and melancholy. These are the moments of extinction, the Nature's farewell: the Nature, in its beautiful attire, is about to fall asleep.

The winter. The continuos motion of this movement depicts a picture of a snow-fall, followed by a real snow and wind storm.

Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

With Natura renovatur, Anâgâmin and Elohim, pieces have been published dating back to the 60s that were hitherto difficult to approach and that show the out-sider's fascinating attempt to realize the "real spherical dimension of sound" using the means of an ensemble made up purely of strings. Persuasively interpreted by Klangforum Wien under Hans Zender.

Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

Through his involvement with avant-garde physics, sculpture, and contemporary dance, as well as cooperation with instrumentalists who dedicate themselves with exceptional enthusiasm to the premiering of new musical works, Hector Parra has spent the past few years developing an ever-sharper, more varied, and more polyphonic musical language. His electronic processing and spatial use of instrumental sounds places listeners in a state of “high sonic energy” in which understanding of the space-time we find ourselves in at the moment of performance can be simultaneously questioned and enriched.

"Art, working with art and making art, is in itself an invitation to boundless freedom. There can be no submission here," writes Wolfgang Rihm. "Uncertainty predominates, the only potential for an agile mind." Four pieces of one of the most significant and provocative post-war composers whose titles speak for themselves: "Gejagte Form" or hunted form, "Verborgene Formen" or concealed forms, "Chiffre I" or cipher, and "Silence to be beaten (Chiffre II)". Four pieces of music that attempt to realise what Wolfgang Rihm considers "art's purpose": "Not to be a place of refuge but a reservoir of energy in regressive times."
