Stadler Quartett:
Frank Stadler, violin / Izso Bajusz, violin / Predrag Katanic, viola / Peter Sigl, cello

The stadler quartet was founded in Salzburg in 1992 by the Mozarteum Orchestra´s current concert master, Frank Stadler. The quartet´s members (Frank Stadler, Izso Bajusz, Predrag Katanic, and Peter Sigl) are also members of the renowned Österreichisches Ensemble für Neue Musik (oenm, or Austrian Ensemble for Contemporary Music).

Together, they form the core of the versatile ensemble, which performs a wide range of music but is particularly committed to contemporary music. The stadler quartet has likewise made it their goal to devote themselves to the preparation and study of contemporary works, including the most recent compositions. Since its founding they premiered around 150 works, many dedicated to them.

The repertoire also includes the key works and the standard repertoire of the 20th-century. However, the basis of their music-making remains the great works of the classical and romantic string-quartet tradition. This diversity has earned the quartet an excellent reputation on the concert stage, well beyond specialist circles.

The quartet greatly values their on-going collaboration with contemporary composers, including George Crumb, Helmut Lachenmann, György Kurtág, Johannes Kalitzke, Peter Ruzicka, Jörg Widmann and Chaya Czernowin. The quartet´s appearance in the Salzburger Festival and their numerous concerts and concert series in Salzburg ("ASPEKTE" festival, among others) serve to demonstrate yet again the quality of the quartet and their esteem in the eyes of the public and music circles.

One of the highpoints in the stadler quartet's career was their spectacular execution of Karlheinz Stockhausen's Helicopter Quartet in the Salzburg Festival.

The Four have toured Holland, the Czech Republic, Germany, Slovenia, Norway, Italy, Japan, Korea and Brasil.

The stadler quartet received the prize for "Neues Hören" or "New Listening" from the International Summer Academy of the Mozarteum .

In 2005, the stadler quartet interpretated (in image and sound) Steve Reich´s work "Different Trains" for a documentary film about Betty Freeman.

The “Four Islands of the Dead” are musical “over-paintings” of “Four Serious Songs” by Johannes Brahms; a work of his later years, songs of consolation for the growing certainty, increasingly personal, of his insight into the transient nature of earthly existence. These songs are like places on a shore made safe by biblical texts, from which one glimpses a dark space, the space of the here-and-now. The idea of a hereafter in the course of modern history, with its progressive centuries-long tendency to secularisation, has become more and more diffuse, so that the phenomenon of death at present is often now entirely repressed; a facade of outwardly life-affirming diversions displaces the view to that area outside one‘s personal experience of time. Böcklin‘s “Islands of the Dead” is a suitable comparison here: what lies hidden beyond the shores of the island, behind silence and darkness, is no longer a question of faith, but has come much more a matter of imagination, of fantasy. The essential subject-matter is invisible.

Isabel's music doesn't evade making the process of its genesis audible, if not the doubts and hesitations during composition, then the traces of ways of deciding, which in their complexity form the special identity of her world of sound. We are not dealing with constructed music, triumphant algorithms conjuring up at any cost the plummet of incontestable certainties. On the contrary this is about the constant invention of certitudes to which the music lends its ear in coming into being, which accepts that a brief-sounding space of time can convey a vaster space of time and its decisions, and bring forth just that unique music adapted to the context of history - our history.

“The three quartets provide a commentary on each other and the time in which they were composed. Gran Torso has something of an investigation about it, of a broaching, of forays into critical new land. Reigen designates the sounds and techniques of two very different regions. Grido gains a new expressiveness- the land of music is freely praised and celebrated, although never without reflexive refraction or arousing disturbance. In the Choral at the end comes a sharp crack, a bark, before the music collapses.”

The composer as echo sounder - that is a lovely and perhaps truly appropriate image for Matthias Pintscher’s work of recent years. He has left behind the often cited and well-trod “power of the poetic”, the “imaginary theatre” of the 1990s, and turned to new ways of posing problems, to circles interested in association and inspiration, which is why the introduction of the text appears initially perhaps somewhat idiosyncratic but on second glance is most definitely located at the actual focus of interest. The dark room full of shimmering grey, the gradual groping one’s way, various levels of indeterminacy - Matthias Pintscher’s coordinates are “space” and “colour.” Composing in chromatic values has largely displaced narrative, what was previously applied with a rather forceful stroke, in the new works is noticeably finer, reduced, simplified in the sense that the complex is more transparent, but does not seem less intricate.

20th Century Russian Cello and Piano Sonatas by Shostakovich and Rachmaninov -

20th Century Russian Cello and Piano Sonatas by Shostakovich and Rachmaninov -
ID: GMCD7219
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: The Great Composers

Recorded: Christ Church, Chelsea, London on 26-27 October 1970 (Rachmaninov) & 16 February 1971 (Shostakovich)

While the two cellos sonatas featured on this disc represent pillars of the 20th century Russian cello repertoire, they each symbolise opposite stylistic poles. Rachmaninov’s sonata is late-Romantic with richly harmonized, virtuoso piano writing matched by cello; that by Shostakovich by contrast, is neo-classical in approach, imbuing familiar forms and gestures with startling new significance: extremes of instrumental ranges, pared down textures, elusive ambiguous tonality and caustic irony. For all their differences however, they share a warm lyricism and affinity for the cello’s tonal and colouristic capabilities, and its intense dialogical relationship with the piano, qualities which have endeared these duo masterpieces to performers and music lovers alike.
