Robin Michael (cello) & Daniel Tong (piano)
Cellist Robin Michael and pianist Daniel Tong present a fascinating new recording of the two sonatas for cello and piano by Johannes Brahms along with Robert Schumann's distinctive Fünf Stücke im Volkston.

Taking a historically informed approach, this unique-sounding performance of these mainstays of the repertoire gives a captivating insight into the chamber music sound world of the late-nineteenth century, performed on an 1897 Blüthner boudoir grand piano thought to have been played by and selected by Brahms himself from the maker's factory, and a cello with gut strings.

Jesus Torres - Manatial de Luz

Jesus Torres - Manatial de Luz

Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Piano

Jesus Torres (born in Saragossa, 1965) is one of the key figures in a very talented generation of Spanish composers who have made a significant contribution to the further development of music in Europe. While they share neither a style nor an ideational background, they do share their point of departure: artistically speaking, they are all "grandchildren" of the great innovators of the post-war period; they came to music after the avant-garde had already gained a permanent, emphatic foothold at the academies - and begun their subsequent march into aesthetic isolation. In order to break free from this, Torres and his colleagues set off on highly individual and divergent musical paths that, viewed as a whole, still set a remarkable example.

Beat Furrer - Solo piano works

Beat Furrer - Solo piano works
ID: KAI0012382

Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Piano

As though he were an architect in sound - the architect of an ongoing Revolution of the Viaduct (Paul Klee) - this composer discovers in his piano pieces something which, for a master mason, might represent discarded corner-stones: the heart of the secret. It becomes apparent that in the pieces for solo piano - themselves like a collection of cornerstones in his output - a small collection of musical gems has come into being: crystalline, glittering, and utterly lucid both in form and appearance. The guiding and enlightening code for them might read: distillation by diminution. (Wolfgang Hofer)

Olga Neuwirth - Chamber Music - Akroate Hadal, Quasare/Pulsare; ...?risonanze!...; etc.
ID: KAI0012462
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Piano

Olga Neuwirth’s music is full of shifts, ruptures, deformations and associative relationships. Her works build upon a various materials of sound, image and language taken from highly diverse backgrounds, which she interconnects without evening out their intrinsic characteristics. Usually marked by unpredictable transformations during which the music branches out like lush organic growth, the composition comes to reflect the heterogeneous starting materials.
These also include a special way of handling the musical instruments - the composer manipulates the tone colors, usually through untypical tuning and preparation, thus providing the groundwork for the creation of highly differentiated musical situations. This roughening of sounds cannot be taken as a mere rejection of conventional euphony. Rather, it articulates a need to capture the potential that lies dormant in these sound producers and harness it for the process of composition thus creating a means of expression based on these unusual ways of sound production in order to formulate contemporary musical figures. Although the composer always traces her vocabulary back to the process of generation that begins with the acoustics and resonance of the instruments used, the process can be understood most clearly in her chamber music instrumentation, especially in the works composed for strings.

Georges Aperghis - Crosswind

Georges Aperghis - Crosswind
ID: KAI0012942
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

Georges Aperghis was not the first well-known composer for musical theatre who neglected the less "spectacular" varieties of music. But unlike the "symphonic form," which Aperghis has rarely considered since his initial attempt in 1972, chamber music recurs throughout his oeuvre. As though staging a theatrical work, Aperghis plays his game in a chamber music hall with new instrumental combinations, creating a connection between the instruments and European musical tradition.

XASAX Ensemble de saxophones modulable: In 1992 the three French saxophonists Serge Bertocchi, Pierre-Stéphane Meugé, and Jean-Michel Goury joined with Marcus Weiss of Switzerland to form XASAX - Ensemble de saxophones modulable. Their experience with contemporary music as soloists and chamber musicians in ensembles like Klangforum Wien and ensemble recherche flowed into their development of a new repertoire for saxophone. XASAX pursues a variety of historical connections, establishes ties to seemingly alien trends, and thereby creates new terrain for this young instrument.

"'Beckett'...is a work for 23 players divided into five homophonic groups, each staying at or near its original pitch or pitches...The new disc has superlative sound: there is an inconspicuous crispness to Cambreling's Viennese band, but also a cushion-like warmth to the lower winds and strings, and a beautiful blend of timbres. This would be an excellent introduction to Feldman...Feldman acolytes will also need the disc. Indeed, no one should be caught without it." -Ashby, ARG

Giacinto Scelsi - Yamaon, Anahit, I presagi / Klangforum Wien - Hans Zender

Giacinto Scelsi - Yamaon, Anahit, I presagi / Klangforum Wien - Hans Zender
ID: KAI0012032
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Vocal Collection

After his hospitalization for a psychological break in the 1950's, Giacinto Scelsi began composing music that was radically different from his earlier, more conventional serial works. Based on explorations of tiny details of timbral variation, his new music defied categorization. His first new works are compelling examinations of repeated notes and their microtonal neighbors. His later pieces are lush sculptures of sound, placed carefully in a silent landscape. 'Okanagon,' is a microscopic observation of repeated low notes, juxtaposed at various angles. In some "views" the ensemble plays percussively on the sides of their instruments, giving the impression of a note magnified so largely that one can hear the individual pulses.
Though it may be difficult to relate Scelsi to other music, it is not without contemporary relevance. Ligeti's string quartets and Penderecki's "Threnody for the Victims of Hiroshima" also employ drone and microtonality. Theirs are harsh cries to Scelsi's fascinated murmur, however.
This great collection, all from various stages of Scelsi's second period, shows the development of his style. Unconventional music always risks horrifying misinterpretation but Hans Zender and the Vienna Klangforum honor Scelsi's music with a reverence for timbre and space. The performances are excellent, and beautifully recorded.
