Lux Nordica - Sibelius and Grieg - Mattia Zappa - Massimiliano Mainolfi
ID: CLAVES501011
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental

A delightful programme, full of Nordic spirit and beautifully played by Mattia Zappa and Massimiliano Mainolfi. This expressive CD is not to be missed, filled with music that is like a very bright light, though never far from the night, a light rather like the sun of Nordic summers.

Schumann, Robert & Clara: Music for Oboe and Cor Anglais

Schumann, Robert & Clara: Music for Oboe and Cor Anglais
ID: CC2002
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Piano

The CD booklet contains an article by Keith Fraser (in English, French and German) on the relationship between Robert and Clara Schumann and a description of each piece, accompanied by session photographs.


How much do pictures reflect reality? The image on the front of this CD is an anonymous copy of a photograph taken of Robert and Clara Schumann in 1850, the year after most of the pieces here were written. Robert, standing soberly by the piano, was actually addicted to wine, women and song. His drinking was referred to by Clara's father Friedrich Wieck in his attempts to prevent their marriage, and Robert's affairs were a problem for Clara. Not so the songs, of which he wrote more than 100 in 1840, the year he married Clara. He was 40 years old in this picture, by this time a thoroughly respected composer, though more successful in some genres than others. His earlier intention, to be a concert pianist, had been thwarted by a (possibly self-inflicted) injury to his right hand. And what of Clara? She was 31 and an acclaimed pianist. She had already given birth to six of her eight children (of whom seven survived). At this period she was also performing, but her pregnancies (and Robert's encouragement) had led to a flowering of her compositional skills. Her face - in common with other photos of her - seems to express a kind of abstracted melancholy. But here the copyist has lied; in the original photograph she is almost smiling. Certainly the years from her marriage until Robert's physical and mental health began its final decline in 1852 contained much ecstatic happiness. As she wrote in her diary soon after their marriage: "I am supremely happy, and becoming more so all the time - if my Robert is as happy as I am, then I will wish for nothing further - because of my love I could sometimes hurt him with my kisses; instead of becoming quieter (as they say one gets to become in a marriage) I become more fiery! - my poor beloved husband! Their relationship was one of mutual love and mutual support, though perhaps Clara was able to support Robert more than the other way round. She encouraged him constantly, and by performing his works at her concerts brought them into the public domain. Robert sometimes described her as his own "right hand". She was sociable and outgoing, he more private and reserved outside his own circle of friends. He needed her support, and indeed sometimes felt inadequate and depressed on her concert tours when she was the star soloist and and he could no longer play the piano properly. Clara's encouragement of Robert was from a position of equality, and the anonymous illustrator has made a blatent distortion in the picture by moving the angle of her head from upright in the original photograph to a more submissive position - forward and down.

cor! - Alison Teale plays cor anglais and Elizabeth Burley, piano
ID: CC2023
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Piano

The 16-page full colour CD booklet folds out to reveal a large image of a cor anglais,
as well as biographies and track notes in English. Introduction by Alison Teale: "I love the cor anglais. To me, it's one of the most wonderful instruments in the orchestra. My mission is to expand its repertoire, to encourage more people to explore its hidden qualities and gain as much pleasure from playing as I do. "I've chosen a mix of music to illustrate the astonishing versatility of the cor anglais: not only its rich and beautiful melodic tones, but also its power and extraordinary agility. Some pieces, such as Luchetti's Rock Song, push the boundaries of technique. Others, like Piazzolla's Nightclub 1960, reveal the glorious upper register. And some, such as the Bebop Tango, are just plain fun."


Alison Teale is the principal cor anglais player with the BBC Symphony Orchestra. While studying at Guildhall School of Music and Drama, Alison was appointed co-principal oboe with the Honh]=g Kong Philharmonic orchestra. In 2003 she moved to Cardiff to become the principal cor anglais player for the BBC National Orchestra of Wales.

In 2001 Alison won the Isle of Wight International oboe Competition, which led to here Purcell Room debut. She has performed numerous concertos for BBC Radio 3, notably Quiet City with Alison Balsam.

She enjoys giving regular masterclasses, performing solo and chamber music recitals, and the additional variety that comes from freelance work. Alison is oboe professor at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama.


Pianist Elizabeth Burley performs, records and broadcasts widely in several different roles: chamber musician, orchestral pianist, soloist and accompanist. She has worked with some of the world's leading orchestras - notably the BBC Sympnony Orchestra, where she has collaborated with many of the most influential modern composers, inclding Boulez, Berio, Knussen, Adams and Maxwell Davies.
Elizabeth is a professor at the Royal College of Music.
