Wolfgang Rihm - Musik für drei Streicher / Trio Recherche

Wolfgang Rihm - Musik für drei Streicher / Trio Recherche
ID: KAI0012042
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: String instruments

Wolfgang Rihm's 'Music for Three Strings' is an immediately striking piece, opening with violent, barely controlled chordal attacks, which become long drones. The first three movements proceed thus, punctuated by long sections of silence. Rihm freely refers to tonal harmony without confining himself to it. The music is reminiscent of the New Viennese School before it became dogmatic in its strict adherence to atonality. The influence of early Berg is audible in the middle section (three "Canzonas") as well as recurring quotations from the late Beethoven quartets.
Much of the material requires strident playing, but also very sensitive ensemble work. For example, many of the triple forte attacks are accompanied by droning pianissimo in the other voices, which must remain audible. The Trio Recherche does a remarkable job of enacting the mania of the first section without stepping on each other's toes. Throughout the work they bring out the expressionistic fervor in Rihm's music with intelligent and supportive playing.

Gérard Grisey - Quatre chants pour franchir le seuil

Gérard Grisey - Quatre chants pour franchir le seuil
ID: KAI0012252
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

... As only few other composers, Gérard Grisey was a master at working in these various "altidudes", one who skilfully zoomed back and forth between micro- and macro-time, or, in Grisey's beautiful imagery, between human time and the extended time of whales and the extremely compressed time of insects. and this disposal of time, of the hearing perspevtive - Grisey certainly knew it - affords the music a power that touches on the metaphysical just as the texts of "Quatre chants" do. "Fertilised with time, the music is afforded the power of the sacred of which Georges Bataille speaks; mute and silent forces that invoke and exorcise the sound and its emergence - perhaps and only for a moment. (Peter Niklas Wilson)

Dmitry Shostakovich - "Sofia" String Quartet

Dmitry Shostakovich - "Sofia" String Quartet
ID: GD168
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Quartet

"Sofia" String Quartet has recorded three of the late quartets by the great Russian composer, a brilliant expression of the his talent and sensitivity. Each of them reveals the richness of the composer's creative imagination, demonstrates original solutions of form, structure, modes and metric rhythms. Quartet No. 8 is of programmatic character and is related to one of the leading themes in the music of Shostakovich - the theme of war, anti-humanism and the staunch support of the idea of peace and humanity. Quartets Nos. 10 and 11 are composed for friends of Shostakovich, associated with his personal life and creative career. Of particular interest is No. 11, consisting of 7 movements, each of which with an emotional context present in its title. The performance of the works by "Sofia" String Quartet is remarkable for its technical virtuosity and freedom - each of the four instrumentalists is a superb musician - with a mastery in the rendition of the multitude of nuances and moods, varying from grief and tragic resignation to joyful intoxication, joke and emotional outbursts. A compact disc, which bears evidence to the high professional standards of the "Sofia" Quartet and brings the joy of feeling the magnificence and the shattering power of the music of Dmitry Shostakovich.

Interprets: Sofia String Quartet
V. Valchev, N. Gagov, V. Gerov, K. Bespalov

Lachenmann chose a text by Leonardo da Vinci:"...but when I had remained silent for a fairly long time, all at once two feelings awoke in me. Fear and desire. Fear of the cave's looming darkness, but the desire to see with my own eyes what marvels may lie within..." and there are many marvels to discover on this exceptional recording.
