MENDELSSOHN - Concerto - String quintet No.2 - CAMERATA BERN - Weithaas - Lonquich

MENDELSSOHN - Concerto - String quintet No.2 - CAMERATA BERN - Weithaas - Lonquich
ID: CLAVES501102
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Piano

This is rather an unusual form as few composers are tempted by a violin and piano partnership adjudicated by the orchestra! On listening to this release you can hear how well this partnership works with the exquisite playing of Anje Weithaas and Alexander Lonquich accompanied by the beautifully balanced Camerata Bern.

Basque Music Collection Vol. XIII: Valentín Zubiaurre

Basque Music Collection Vol. XIII: Valentín Zubiaurre
ID: CLAVES501012
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Cello

The adventure started over ten years ago. With one recording a year, we are now, in 2010, up to the 13th volume of the Basque music collection, begun by Marguerite Dütschler-Huber, founder of Claves Records, and which the new management is very keen to pursue. This last opus is dedicated to the composer Valentín Zubiaurre (1837-1914), whom we shall discover with the Orchestre National Basque and Juan José Ocón through his only symphonic opus - the Symphony in E Major dated 1870 - two opera preludes (he wrote three in total) and a page called “Ecos de Oiz”. As soloist: cellist Roman Jablonski. Zubiaurre started music as a chorister in Bilbao. In 1852 he left for South America where he visited various countries and taught music. He came back to Spain in 1866 and won the Concours National de Musique in 1869 with his opera Don Fernando el Emplazado. Thanks to a grant from the Académie des Beaux Arts he visited France, Italy and Germany in 1873 and became Second Kapellmeister of the Capella Real two years later; he became First Kapellmeister in 1878, all the while developing his teaching activities at the Madrid Conservatory.

Do you know Charles Villiers Stanford? If not, here is a wonderful opportunity to fill this gap: Irish pianist Finghin Collins (author of several Claves albums, among which volumes 1 and 3 of the Schumann collection) and the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra co-sign with the Swiss label a magnificent recording completely dedicated to this …. Irish composer! Son of a protestant lawyer, Stanford went to Queen's College in Cambridge and Trinity College, Dublin, then left for Leipzig to study with Reinecke and Kiel. Most of his life and work were associated with Cambridge, where he was a prominent actor of the University Music Society, and with London's Royal College of Music, where he taught composition right from the opening of the establishment in 1883. He is to be thanked for the first English auditions of numerous Romantic masterpieces - such as Brahms' First Symphony in 1877 - and for highly original symphonic arrangements of Hymns for the Anglican liturgy. Among his own productions, « The Revenge » - a choral ballad written for the Leeds Festival - remained an absolute favourite with British choirs for many years. Featured on Finghin Collins's CD, his 2nd Piano Concerto also dates from the 1910 Leeds Festival, where Sergei Rachmaninov interpreted his 2nd Concerto himself. The work is dedicated to Ukranian pianist Moritz Rosenthal. The Concert Variations upon an English Theme "Down Among the Dead Men", on the other hand, date from 1898 and were written for Leonard Borwick, an English pianist and former pupil of Clara Schumann.

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.

ID: CLAVES502408

Type: CD
Subcollection: Piano

Is it even necessary to introduce Clara Haskil? Sublime pianist, perhaps too often reduced to the role of an interpreter of Mozart, she now discloses a new side of her art for Claves, a side that already has received much attention in recordings: her collaboration with conductor Ernest Ansermet and his orchestra, the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande; two live recordings made by Radio Suisse Romande during the last years of her life. On the program: Schumann’s Concerto in A Minor, recorded at Victoria Hall in Geneva in 1956, and Beethoven’s Concerto No. 3, which is immortalized here in a recording from the Septembre Musical in Montreux in 1960, less than four months before the pianist’s tragic death in Brussels. These are moving testimonies of her art that provide witness to the immense subtlety of her playing, fragile and irresistibly incandescent. And for Claves Records, which was taken over by the Clara Haskil Foundation, it is the opportunity to pay homage to its new “patron saint”.
