Mikhail Voskresensky is one of Russia's leading pianists. He is the winner of four international piano competitions (Schumann in Berlin, in Rio de Janeiro, George Enescu in Bucharest, and Van Cliburn in Fort Worth, Texas). In 1966 he was honoured with the Merited Artist of Russia award and in 1989, the People's Artist of Russia. Mikhail Voskresensky has extensive concert experience. His performances has been recorded and issued on more than 50 CDs. His performing art is well known and favored by the audiences worldwide. He is the only pianist in Russia to perform all of Chopin's piano compositions during one concert season (in 1982-83, in nine recitals in the Maly Hall of the Moscow Conservatoire). Mikhail Voskresensky graduated from the Moscow Conservatoire where he studied under Ilia Klyachko, Boris Zemliansky, Yakob Milstein, Lev Oborin (piano) and Leonid Roizman (organ). As student of the famous Lev Oborin, the winner of the First Chopin's Competition in 1927, Voskresensky adopted his teacher's refined romanticism, and perfect taste in harmony with the piano's splendid sound. The images evoked by his playing suggest contrasting musical colours, never out of harmony, with a charming legato inducing the instrument to sing. "His playing fascinates audiences with its artistry, cordiality and ingeniousness. Mikhail Voskresensky is a very talented and intelligent musician", Oborin wrote about his pupil. Voskresensky's repertoire includes Beethoven's 32 sonatas, all works of Chopin, and 64 piano concertos. He has performed with orchestras under the direction of more than 150 conductors, among them - Charles Dutoit, John Pritchard, Franz Konwitschny, Kurt Masur, Eugeny Svetlanov, Kirill Kondrashin etc. Since 2007, he is involved in a project of recording all Mozart piano concerti with Pavel Slobodkin Centre Symphony orchestra in cooperation with the conductor Leonid Nikolaev. After Mr. Nikolaev's death, the project was taken up by the conductor Konstantin Masliuk. On this CD, the seventh in this cycle, Concerti no.2, 8, and 22 are represented (recorded live from a concert in Maly Hall of the Moscow Conservatory). Mikhail Voskresensky began his pedagogical activities at the Moscow Conservatoire in 1959. For 8 years, he was an assistant to Professor Lev Oborin; since 1963 he has his own class. At present, Professor Voskresensky is the Head of piano chair at the Moscow Conservatoire. His pupils have won 112 prizes in international competitions, among them 49 gold medals. He has participated as juror for many major international competitions. He continues to be Chairman of the Jury for the Scriabin International Competition in Moscow. Mikhail Voskresensky is the President of the Scriabin International Society, and Guest Professor in the Toho Gakuen School in Tokyo. Professor Voskresensky gives numerous master classes in Russia and abroad.

G. C. Menotti - Chamber Works - RTÉ Vanbrugh Quartet

G. C. Menotti - Chamber Works - RTÉ Vanbrugh Quartet
ID: CHRCD006
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Piano

Gian Carlo Menotti passed away recently - in 2007 - and had been a force in musical life for over half a century. Born in Italy, he became a friend of Samuel Barber while studying, and it was largely this friendship which encouraged him to move to the USA. Though his home was in the USA, he always considered himself to be an Italian composer.

Menotti had great success with several operas, establishing himself as a leading opera composer of the post-war period. There is a natural, innate lyricism to his musical language; an unabashed deployment of attractive melodies, which allows him to communicate directly to a large audience who, in general, share his musical taste, loving the things he loved.

Menotti's instrumental and vocal concert music has not attracted as much attention as his stage works, but his cantatas, concertos, song-cycles and other works all share the same musical virtues and attractiveness, creating vivid and compelling musical images, and benefitting from his instinctive sense of drama.

RTÉ Vanbrugh Quartet:
Winner of the 1988 London International String Quartet Competition and now in its twenty-third concert season, the RTÉ Vanbrugh Quartet is one of Europe’s most successful quartets, internationally recognised for its beauty of sound, clarity of texture and integrity of interpretation within an unusually wide and varied range of repertoire. Appointed Resident Quartet to RTÉ in 1986 and with almost 700 performances in Ireland to date, the group has dedicated itself to bringing the wonders of the string-quartet repertoire to audiences throughout the country. At the same time they have built a thriving international career, with regular tours taking them throughout Europe and the USA.

Welcoming the internationally celebrated vocal group, the Hilliard Ensemble, onto CORO ... In all the excitement and immediacy of live performance the world-famous Hilliard Ensemble here displays the complex musical style of the Notre Dame school of around 1200 AD. They contrast this Parisian form with contemporary examples from south-western France and England. Throughout the experience is compelling and other-worldly; it will fascinate those who have never before heard such music. The Hilliard Ensemble is one of the world's finest vocal chamber groups, and is probably unrivalled for its formidable reputation in the fields of both early and new music. This series was only previously available direct from the group but has never before been fully available at international retail.

Harpsichord Pascal-Jospeh Taskin, 1769, copy - J.D. Dulcken, copy

"In reference to the biography of Pietro Domenico Paradies (Paradisi) (1707-1791), we have already mentioned it in the preface of the CD dedicated to his first six Sonate di Gravicembalo, published in 1754 by the London publisher John Johnson along with the subsequent ones recorded here.
To underline the importance of the harpsichord (clavicembalo) production of this Neapolitan composer, we would like to remind that, besides the existence of a multitude of manuscript material, there are also numerous productions, following one another, subsequent to the first one, in particular the Parisian one of Le Clerc (1765) and the London ones of Welcker (1770), Blundell (1781), Preston (1790), Longman & Broderip (1790).
It is about an editorial tradition which lasted for about fifteen years, very much indicative of the fame that Paradies reached in both quality of composer and teacher and concert performer. It is not easy to fully appreciate whether the twelve sonatas in the subject have been conceived at the same time or in different periods. The variety of stylistic references, the cross- references to a typical Neapolitan taste as well to the French one, resorting to the technique of Domenico Scarlatti as well as to the one of Johann Christian Bach, would lead us to assume different chronological moments; however it may also be a wisely handled versatility.
In the analysis of these monuments glorifying the triumph of the galant style, another element that would lead us to reflect could be the character typically of "harpsichord" of some works contrasting others with movements typically of the "Piano". (by Filippo E. Ravizza)

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.

Silvia Chiesa, cello G. Grancino 1687
Maurizio Baglini, piano grancoda Fazioli

Concerto is particularly proud of having brought together in this recording several of the best of Italy's musical world to apply their talent to a completely French program: two of the most important makers of present and past musical instruments, of world wide fame, Fazioli and Grancino; two excellent young musicians, Maurizio Baglini and Silvia Chiesa; and the well known and important composer, Azio Corghi, all of whom meet over Chopin and Debussy music for cello and piano.
Gianpaolo Minardi's notes or, variations on some songs from the French Revolution provide the introduction: ça ira?
We hope so. The impressive acoustics of the Fazioli Concert Hall where performance was recorded are captured in this 64-bit recording.
The piece composed by Corghi, presented here for the first time ever, is dedicated to the Baglini-Chiesa Duo.

STEREO DDD - 32 bit recording, 96 kHz

Booklet: Italiano / English

Two small gems, Duets for violin & viola KV 423 and 424, and a renowned masterpiece, Divertimento KV 563, are presented in this recording. The Duetti are particularly precious for the quality of the writing and because it is rare to find pieces written by Mozart for two instruments (in fact, if we discount the twelve duets for basset-horn, opera 411, a few transcriptions from Bach, and of course, the Sonatas for keyboard and instrument, there are no such others among Mozart's works). Contrary to common practice of the time, in these two pieces, both instruments bear equal weight and the result is a dialogue between near equals, with the viola being just as important as the violin. As far as the Divertimento is concerned, much has been written: Mila's comment sums it up best when he wrote: a smile from angels, purified of all earthly misery.
The exceptional performers from the well-known Quartetto della Scala di Milano executed this recording on antique instruments: a Gennaro Gagliano viola made in 1800 and a Giovanbattista Guadagnini violin made in 1773.

"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.
