ID: QTZ2081
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Oboe

A disc of ground-breaking new works for oboe by the exciting, young oboist James Turnbull

The repertoire on this release has been chosen in a deliberate attempt to assemble works from the past 30 years by British composers that demonstrate the great contrasts possible with the oboe. There are pieces that emphasize stillness and meditation while others focus on the raw emotions of anger and grief.

This recording thus serves as homage to the memory of the glorious period, in which some of these instruments existed, in the form of a suggestive approach to the disquieting and enigmatic sonic world of the time. The exquisitely selected ingredients for this menu are sheep gut strings, Venice catline gut roped bass strings according to Praetorius, black horse hair for the bows, historical tunings (such as the French music played at 390 hertz), historical temperaments (Pythagorean for the Vihuela), English scordatura tuning, instruments made according to old techniques, instrument models of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, etc…

EXODUS - Roman Mints, violin - Paul Dunmall, saxophone

EXODUS - Roman Mints, violin - Paul Dunmall, saxophone
ID: QTZ2062
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Violin

This collaboration came about as Paul Dunmall had heard some of Roman Mints’ records and after meeting at a concert which they both did with Brian Irvine Ensemble, he invited him to record an album of improvisation with him. The album is named ‘Exodus’ because it is a departure from what Roman Mints was recording before, it is a ‘liberation’ in the way it is performed, all spontaneous with Roman using a lot of extending techniques including detuning the violin to expand the range. For thirty years Paul Dunmall has carved out a reputation for himself and is now widely recognized as one of the most uncompromising and talented reed players on the international jazz/improvised music scene. Whether playing in small groups or big bands his musical sensitivity and imagination combined with a powerful sound make him one of the most distinctive improvisers playing today.

ID: MELCD1002108

Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano

Recorded in 1959 and 1960.

Frédéric Chopin’s etudes are a unique combination of virtuoso technique and artistic supertasks. It is not without reason that no compulsory programme of any international competition can do without them. Each of the etudes is an ‘exercise’ in one of the types of piano technique, while sounding like a bright and image-bearing piece.

The twelve etudes of Op.10 were composed during 1828-1832 and dedicated to Franz Liszt. The twelve etudes of Op.25 were published in 1836. Nearly all pianists of the world have Chopin’s etudes in their repertoire, but only a few of them have the courage to play both of the opuses in their entirety.

Firma Melodiya presents twenty-four etudes by Chopin performed by Vladimir Ashkenazy, one of the greatest pianists of modern times. What makes these recordings especially interesting is that they were made in 1959 by the then 22-year-old pianist. With his world triumphs still ahead (although Ashkenazy had received a second prize at the International Chopin Piano Competition in Warsaw and won the prestigious Queen Elisabeth Music Competition in Brussels), Ashkenazy’s pianism already appears in full possession of virtuosic and artistic mastery.

“The young pianist is not just an owner of phenomenally deft, strong and superbly trained fingers, he also proficiently wields a diverse and beautiful palette of piano sounds”, wrote one of the reviewers in those days.

For the genesis of Java Suite we have to go back to 1920. Godowsky was 50, at the height of his fame as a pianiast and a composer, and about to enter the most hectic decade of his life. He had recently made New York his base, he was married with four children and his hands were insured for one million dollars. The Nerw York Times has dubbed him 'a pianist for pianists' as Shelly is 'a poet for poets'. After a two year tour to exotic places such as Mexico, Japan, Hong Hong, Shanghai, Singapore and Java he started composing the first of his Phonoramas and naming them Java Suite.
