From Leipzig to London - Duo Sonatas from the 18th and 20th Centuries

From Leipzig to London - Duo Sonatas from the 18th and 20th Centuries
ID: CC2013
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Oboe

The 24-page CD booklet has a 3,000 word programme note in English and German, detailing the origins of both the Bach and the 20th Century works, with a description of the performers, and many photographs.


The oboe played an important role in eighteenth-century musical society, with composers such as Handel, Vivaldi and Telemann making wide use of it as a solo, chamber and orchestral instrument. A favourite with J.S. Bach, the oboe and its family featured significantly in the composer's life in Leipzig where many of his large scale choral works were produced.

During the nineteenth century, the instrument was almost entirely relegated to the orchestra; only a handful of composers regarded it as a suitable solo instrument. However it was revived in the twentieth century by pioneers such as Léon Goossens and Janet Craxton studying, performing and teaching in London. Other players helping to reaffirm the musical capabilities of the oboe as a solo instrument included Evelyn Rothwell (Lady Barbirolli), who with her duo partner Valda Aveling (harpsichord) realized the potential of combining these two instruments. They encouraged some of England's most respected composers to use the harpsichord in duo sonata form for the first time since the eighteenth century, and this CD presents four pieces which were written for them in 1963 and 1972.

Mélodie Zhao : Les 12 Etudes d’exécution transcendante (piano), Franz Liszt

Mélodie Zhao : Les 12 Etudes d’exécution transcendante (piano), Franz Liszt
ID: CLAVES501110
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano

Mélodie Zhao is typical of all young girls of her generation : she uses all the modern means of communication, has her own web page, is actively present on social networks and lives her art and work passionately. Yet her own passion is rather unusual: as a 17 year old, her ambition is to play the most complex piano cycle ever written, with the added bonus of making it feel like a walk in the park whilst striving to unite musicality and virtuosity in one vital surge. Recorded in the best recording studio in Switzerland, the famous Salle de Musique in La Chaux-deFonds, these Transcendental Etudes, written by Liszt in Vienna at the age of 15, emerge, with Mélodie Zhao’s gracefulness, as a bursting, youthful, loving tribute to life. An interpretation as cheeky and mind-blowing as the CD cover!

F. Liszt - Joseph Moog - Recital

F. Liszt - Joseph Moog - Recital
ID: CLAVES501108
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano

Anniversaries are just great! The bicentenary of the birth of Franz Liszt - outstanding, hero-worshipped artist, star of the romantic 19th century - has given Joseph Moog the chance to present an anthology of rare transcriptions and paraphrases. Throughout this generous programme, the young virtuoso takes us along previously virtually unexplored paths, with evocations of Bach, Beethoven, Schubert and Rossini, and settings such as a cathedral, an opera, a ball, or the delicate intimacy of a Romantic salon, illustrating Franz Liszt’s extraordinary versatility in every situation. As a complement to these transcriptions and paraphrases, Joseph Moog chose the second Ballade, rare testimony of the introverted Liszt, contrasting with the sparkling Valse-Impromptu that closes this outstanding recital.
