KLARINETTENKONZERTE - FRIEDLI - ANGERER - PLEYEL - MOLTER - MERCADANTE

KLARINETTENKONZERTE - FRIEDLI - ANGERER - PLEYEL - MOLTER - MERCADANTE

Type: CD
Subcollection: Clarinet

The hallmark of the South-west German Chamber Orchestra Pforzheim (Südwestdeutsches Kammerorchester Pforzheim) is its fresh and gripping musical approach and stylistic diversity from early to contemporary music. The ensemble consists of fourteen musicians of seven different nationalities and is one of the few full-time chamber orchestras in Europe. This allows for exceptional richness and flexibility of sound, which is maintained even when the Orchestra is enlarged with further wind or string players. The ensemble was founded in 1950 by Paul Hindemith's former student Friedrich Tilegant. Soon the ensemble won international recognition: One talked of the "Tilegant-sound", which could not only be heard at the festivals in Salzburg, Lucerne and Leipzig as well as on world-wide tours, but which was also documented on numerous recordings. Maurice André, Dietrich Fischer-Diskau, Frans Brüggen and Yehudi Menuhin are only a few of the celebrity names who have worked with the Orchestra. After the Tilegant-era, which ended far too early after the premature death of its founder in 1968, the Orchestra was moulded by the Viennese Paul Angerer (1971-1981) and Vladislav Czarnecki (1986-2002), who came from the Czech music tradition. Since the beginning of the 2002-03 season, the young German conductor Sebastian Tewinkel, winner of several international competitions, has been the new Music Director. On its road to success the South-west German Chamber Orchestra has made numerous broadcasts for almost all European radio stations and released nearly 250 records and CDs, many of which were awarded international prizes (Grand Prix du Disque, Monteverdi Prize, Prox Artur Honegger). Several premiere performances (Jean Françaix, Harald Genzmer, Enjott Schneider) prove its competence in contemporary music. Currently the Chamber Orchestra plays together with renowned soloists such as Gidon Kremer, Rudolf Buchbinder, Christian Tetzlaff, Sabine Meyer, Frank Peter Zimmermann, Mischa Maisky and Anatol Ugorski. Together with them - but also with up-and-coming young musicians - the Orchestra has been invited to perform in all European countries as well as in the USA and Japan. Ideas for new programmes beyond the traditional subscription concerts extend the ensemble's profile. In 2001, the South-west German Chamber Orchestra toured Europe's great concert halls with Giora Feidman and Facundo Ramirez, playing Klezmer and Argentinian folklore (Misa Criolla), and the ensemble continues to tread new paths with American violinist Monique Mead to win young audiences for classical music ("Classic for Kids"). The Orchestra recently recorded a newly composed score which was mixed with original soundtracks of the Comedian Harmonists and performs other projects of chamber opera, dance (Flamenco with Nina Corti) and marionette theatre.

GOYA - The music of Enrique Granados -Tom Kerstens, guitar

GOYA - The music of Enrique Granados -Tom Kerstens, guitar
ID: BGS116
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Guitar

Original arrangements played on period instruments by acclaimed master guitarist.

TOM KERSTENS is a major figure in guitar music today. A highly acclaimed and versatile performer on modern and period instruments, Tom is one of the most influential champions of the instrument’s cause in his roles of player, recording artist, and artistic director. Among his many awards and tributes is the prestigious Joaquin Rodrigo Commemorative Medal. He presents his new album GOYA, the music of Enrique Granados played on a Torres Guitar.

Enrique Granados (1867-1916) is one of Spain’s greatest composers. Alongside Isaac Albéniz and Manuel de Falla, Granados is regarded as one of the three most successful exponents of a kind of music often called Spanish musical nationalism, evoking the feel & character of Spain.

He was fascinated by the work of painter Francisco Goya (1746-1828) whose ability to depict what the composer regarded as the essence of the Spanish character, greatly inspired his music. This recording features the soloists own arrangements made from the new Urtext edition for the piano by Alicia de Larrocha and Douglas Riva, published by Boileau.

The Calm of Einaudi - Christine Rayner, solo piano

The Calm of Einaudi - Christine Rayner, solo piano

Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano

Christine Rayner plays Ludovico Einaudi’s music for solo piano in aid of UK Cancer Charities and Research. The calming influence of the pieces selected for this collection create a sanctuary in which the stresses of daily life have no place.
“On first hearing the beautiful Le Onde by Ludovico Einaudi in 2009 I was captivated. This piece touched me deeply, and playing his music has since become a vital part of my life.
The calming influence of many of Einaudi’s works creates for me a sanctuary in which the stresses of daily life have no place. His music would undoubtedly have inspired and uplifted me during the dark months of my chemotherapy eleven years ago, and I regret that it was unknown to me at that time.
With this in mind, I humbly present my selected pieces from Einaudi’s past albums as a compilation intended to offer the listener a restful hour of peace, calm and relaxation.”
At least £1 per copy sold will be Gift-Aid donated to UK Cancer Charities. Donations from sales will also go to directly help fund Prof. Roy Bicknell’s research into alternative treatments to chemotherapy.

Ferruccio Busoni - George Enescu - Nurit Stark - Cedric Pescia

Ferruccio Busoni - George Enescu - Nurit Stark - Cedric Pescia
ID: CLAVES502811
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Piano

Pianist Cédric Pescia is back at Claves with a new and unique recording following his previous extraordinary releases: the “Goldberg Variations” in 2004, a double-album featuring Schumann’s piano music in 2006, and the “Folies françaises” last year. He shares the stage with violinist Nurit Stark for two sonatas composed at the turn of the 20th century. Penned by Ferruccio Busoni and George Enescu, they are the works of two truly innovative composers whose music is worth to be rediscovered. For Etienne Barilier, the author of the liner notes, their success and popularity as performers proved to be a hindrance to their reputations as composers. Neither utilized a modern compositional system or founded a school of composition, two key elements of interest to posterity… Happily, however, it is never too late, and in this sense their rediscovery is even more delightful. “Busoni and Enescu were great humanist musicians, and their compositions, magnificently singular, incontestably modern, are filled by a rich and vast sense of the musical past”, notes the author. “They are cultivated as well as audacious, but if one would like to approach their music, it is necessary to appreciate audacity as well as culture. And thus they have bequeathed us with boundless riches.” Wonderful listening…
