José Manuel López López, a composer with many long years of experience, stands out by virtue of his mature style of writing and the consistent way in which he adapts what he writes to the sound which he intends to produce. Since composing his initial musical works during the 1980s, his development has led from atonality to spectralism and, from there, on to experimentation with various temporal granulations. This CD brings together three symphonic works with solo instruments that exemplify this development. Written in the period between 1995 and 2005, they represent three distinctly different contributions to the contemporary orchestral repertoire.

Wolfgang Rihm once said retrospectively of his piano oeuvre: "The music I have composed for piano is not a separate block within my production stream. In its own way, every piece shares in and belongs to the problematic of its wider context. The works Klavierstück Nr. 1 to Klavierstück Nr. 7 are not based on a cyclical concept." To summarise, let us reflect on Wolfgang Rihm's piano work, here in his own perspective: "Nr. 1 is a free development form, which, however, did not emerge freely, without constraints. The piece is wholly dominated by the expressive uncertainty which derived from what everyone was preaching, namely that everything be structured. So I integrated refrains, inserts, cross-references here and left and right. This technique becomes especially distinct in Klavierstück Nr. 4 and Nr. 5. Setting the part of the piano gradually turns into the setting of accents, which opens up possibilities of expression that I did not discover until Klavierstück Nr. 7. This is where the preoccupation with Beethoven's piano setting and his wild-gentle gestures, the so-called late Beethoven's, becomes the main driving force. (Wolfgang Hofer)

Giacinto Scelsi - Action Music No. 1- Bernhard Wambach, piano

Giacinto Scelsi - Action Music No. 1- Bernhard Wambach, piano
ID: KAI0012312

Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano

Giacinto Scelsi’s relationship with the piano is interesting and contradictory. For no other instrument has the Italian composer and poet composed so many pieces; to no other instrument does he seem so closely attached, both personally and biographically; and no other instrument disappeared so abruptly and finally from his scores as the piano, the European showcase instrument. With the piano, we can follow the break lines and developments in the musical thinking and works of Giacinto Scelsi, which are key to an understanding of his striking compositional development. As late piano compositions, Action music and Suite Nr. 8 mark a transition to Giacinto Scelsi’s new musical language: the exploration of the individual sound, the inclination to a sound-energetic agglomeration, the gesture of improvisation - all this is also clearly discernable in both his works.

Exploring the 50 years of French music that influenced J.S Bach’s Six Cello Suites

Four suites for solo bass viol performed on an instrument of the period

Bach’s Six Suites for Unaccompanied Cello are the most popular and well known solo cello works ever written. They have become some of the most inspirational and influential compositions written for the instrument.

But where did Bach take his inspiration from? In the half a century before the Cello Suites the European musical world was dominated by the Italian and French styles. It was in France (1650 to 1700) that the form for these Suites was being honed to perfection by composers writing for the bass viol. Le Sieur Dubuisson and Monsieur de Sainte-Colombe were two of the most prolific composers writing for the viol in the 17th Century. Sainte-Colombe was taught by Nicolas Hotman who, in turn, taught Marin Marais. Sainte-Colombe was a celebrated master of the instrument and is the composer of no less than 67 concerts à deux violles and 170 pieces for solo seven string viol. Nicolas Hotman and Le Sieur De Machy studied the viol together and in their own ways had a major influence on the development and stabilisation of the dance suite for solo bass instrument during the latter part of the 17th Century.

However, it was Marin Marais who bridged the gap between the late 17th century and the early 18th century up to and during the writing of Bach’s masterpieces. Marais, an incomparable French gambist whose works are known in all of Europe, left us one of the most important and influential bodies of music for the instrument.

CHARLES MEDLAM studied the cello in London, Paris, Vienna and Salzburg before becoming interested in the bass viol and early performing styles. After a year lecturing and playing in the resident string quartet at the Chinese University of Hong Kong he returned to Europe and studied with Maurice Gendron at the Paris Conservatoire, Wolfang Herzer in Vienna and subsequently cello with Heidi Litschauer and performance practice with Nikolaus Harnoncourt in Salzburg. After graduating with distinction from the Mozarteum he pursued his interest in the viol on frequent courses with Wieland Kuijken. He founded London Baroque with Ingrid Seifert in 1978.

Charles plays baroque music on a Perugian cello made by Finnocchi circa 1720 and later music on a Lorenzo Ventapane made in Naples in 1806. His bass viol is an English instrument from around 1680, possibly by Barak Norman, which has had a seventh string added for the French repertoire.

Fleur de Lys is a fascinating exploration of beautiful and rarely-heard repertoire.

This recording is an important historical document charting the evolution of the classical suite.

Clarinet Sonata No. 2 in G minor
Clarinet Sonata No. 4 in E flat major
Clarinet Sonata No. 6
Clarinet Sonata No. 8
Clarinet Sonata No. 10
Clarinet Sonata No. 12

Colin Lawson (clarinet) & Sebastian Comberti (cello)

Volume 2 of the Lefèvre Sonatas completes the set of 12 from his Méthode de Clarinette (1802). Reviews of Vol. 1 praised the clarity of texture of the historical instrumentation and the consequent benefit to Lefèvre’s inventive pieces.
Repertoire on the new disc again reflects the progressive nature of the set, ranging from the concise Sonata no. 2 to the complex final Sonata no. 12, with its characterful set of variations.
These performances offer a vivid contrast to the unwieldy medium of modern B flat clarinet and piano, on which a few of the sonatas have been played from modern editions. Many of the pieces are, however, virtually unknown.
Following on from Lawson’s other highly successful CDs for Clarinet Classics, this CD will inspire players and listeners alike.
First performances using original instrumentation (C clarinet and cello).
Core repertoire (included on Associated Board and many other exam syllabi).
Important set of early Clarinet Sonatas from a celebrated pedagogue.
