ID: GD357
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Violin

The Masonic movement is considered to have originated in the beginning of the 18th century. For this reason, the present release covers three centuries. The composers included are not only among the greatest musicians, but they are also renowned members of Masonic lodges. For example, Haydn and Mozart were members of "Zur wahren Eintracht" (True Harmony), and List was a member of "Zur Einigkeit" (Unity). The performers Ventseslav Nikolov and Ruzhka Tcharaktchieva are among the most distinguished Bulgarian musicians and laureates of prestigious international competitions. Currently they are respected members of the adjudicators’ committees of these competitions. Still giving concerts and making recordings of works from different epochs, they pass their experience to their students at the Prof. Pancho Vladigerov Academy of Music. The programme with music by Masonic composers is a clear example of their excellent performing skill and interpretation of styles !

Collection: Instrumental
Subcollection: Piano

Fiammetta Tarli was born in Pisa, Italy. She started studying piano with Giampiero Semeraro, Maria Tipo, Lydia Rocchetti-Pezzati (at the Florence Conservatoire); she participated in master classes with Ilonka Deckers, and in a master class for Lieder and Vocal Music with Elio Battaglia in Acquasparta (Terni, Italy). Later she specialised in vocal and instrumental chamber music with Iain Ledingham, former Head of Opera at the Royal Academy of Music (London), and in solo repertoire with Dennis Lee. In November 2003 she took her Master of Musicology (MMus) at King’s College London with a Special Study on Schumann’s early piano music (passed with Distinction). In October 2008 she submitted her PhD thesis, which was completed with an AHRC scholarship, at the same institution. She won awards at prestigious piano competitions: 1st Prize of the National Piano Competition “Muzio Clementi” in Florence, “Pietro Napoli” in Livorno (three times), “Pasquale Cafaro” in Galatina, “J. S. Bach” in Sestri Levante, 1st prize as an accompanist in the “Jugend Musiziert” competition in Munster (Germany), the International Piano Competition in Stresa. She performs regularly in Italy, Germany and the UK in solo recitals and as an accompanying pianist. In January 2003 she made her debut in Bulgaria as a soloist performing Schumann’s Piano Concerto.
The works selected for this programme come as a logical choice, even though Schumann is a great challenge for every pianist (he was called the “Paganini of the piano”). Fiammetta Tarli demonstrates a permanent interest for this composer not only as a performer, but also as a musicologist. Her deep knowledge of his works helps her convey the composer‘s philosophy.

“It is not that difficult to play the violin. It is a simple thing, once you reach a certain stage.” - Mintcho Mintchev often repeats these words of Professor Yfrah Neaman and goes on: “The difficult part is to be able to decide what you want. If you know what you really want, then you will find the way to accomplish it.” It looks as if he had always known what he wanted, because when we listen to him we are amazed at the ease and simplicity of his manner of playing. He started taking violin lessons at an early age and gave his first solo concert when he was nine. He studied at the “Lyubomir Pipkov” National Music School, the “Prof. Pancho Vladigerov” National Academy of Music and then furthered his violin studies for two years in London. His teachers were the famous violinists and pedagogues Emil Kamilarov and Yfrah Neaman. Mintcho Mintchev is laureate of the most prestigious international competitions: “Carl Flesch” in London, “Wieniawski” in Poland and “Paganini” in Italy, and today he is a respected adjudicator at these compositions. His concert activity is connected with the greatest orchestras in the world: the London Royal Philharmonic Orchestra, Amsterdam Symphony Orchestra, Saint Petersburg Philharmonic Orchestra, Dresden Philharmonic, etc., and among the conductors that he worked with are Sir Neville Marriner, Sir Alexander Gibson, John Eliot Gardiner, Leonard Slatkin. He has played in the most renowned halls worldwide and also at some untypical places - for example in the big cave of the National Historical Archeological Reserve Madara. His repertoire is impressive and also includes many works composed specially for him. He plays on a Stradivarius - Baron Wittgenstein, made by the great Italian master in 1716 and bought by the Bulgarian country in 1877 for Mintcho Mintchev. Apart from his concert activity, Mintcho Mintcho is also famous with his work as a violin teacher. Since 1990 he has been a professor at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen, Germany, but he also leads master classes in many countries in Europe (in Bulgaria - in Sofia, at the international festivals “Varna Summer”, “March Music Days” in Russe, “Apolonia” in Sozopol, “Chamber Music Days” in his native town Gabrovo), in America, Asia and Australia. In spite of his busy concert, recording and teaching career, Mintcho Mintchev always finds time to support the activity of different foundations: he is president of the “Pancho Vladigerov” Foundation and president of the International Violin Adjudicators to the International Competition for Piano and Violin “Pancho Vladigerov”, artistic director of the International Summer Music Academy “Varna Summer”, member of the Managing Board of the International Foundation “St. St. Cyril and Methodius”. A worthy co-performer in this release is the pianist Marina Kapitanova. Her creative biography is also impressive. She is a preferred performing partner and has played with Dina Schneiderman, Emil Kamilarov, Mintcho Mintchev, Eugenia-Maria Popova, Vesko Eschkenazy (Panteleev), etc. She has worked in the master classes of Mintcho Mintchev, Rosa Fein, Sashko Gavrilov, Oleg Krisa, Sergey Kravchenko, Takashi Shimizo, Devin Early, Michael Frischenschlager and has participated in concerts throughout Europe, in Japan, China, Korea…She has received awards and diplomas for best accompaniment at the competitions “Pancho Vladigerov”, “David Oystrach”, “Beijing 1986”, Belgrade, etc. Since 2005 Marina Kapitanova has been associate professor in piano accompaniment at the “Prof. Pancho Vladigerov” National Academy of Music.

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.

Gerhard Oppitz - Japanese Piano Works

Gerhard Oppitz - Japanese Piano Works
ID: HAEN098631000
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Instrumental

The program covers 70 years of Japanese classical music, beginning with a Piano Sonata by the German-trained Saburo Moroi. Moroi was Japan's first great symphonist and his musical language shows the influence of Hindemith. "Second Generation" composer Toru Takemitsu is arguably Japan's most famous composer. Takemitsu composed music in nearly every style, from experimental electronic pieces to film scores and even lounge jazz songs.His best works are characterized by a successful blending of Japanese aesthetics with western compositional techniques. The music of the Post War generation is represented by works from three of Japan's most popular living composers. Shin-Ichiro Ikebe is best know for his many soundtracks and film scores for the director Akira Kurosawa and the popular Miyazaki anime movies, while composer Akira Nishimura has consciously sought to create a distinctive Pan-Asian musical language, bringing together aspects of the aesthetic, spiritual and philosophic traditions from many different cultures. Keiko Fujiie, the youngest composer represented in this recital is no doubt familiar to guitarists around the world. She has composed many popular works for performance by her husband, the phenomenal guitar virtuoso Kazuhito Yamashita. This is an extraordinary recital, beautifully performed by Oppitz and an invaluable documentation of a still-neglected area of the 20th century piano repertoire.

FRANZ LISZT - Works for Violin and Piano Vol.2

FRANZ LISZT - Works for Violin and Piano Vol.2
ID: HAEN098634000
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Piano

Friedemann Eichhorn is a German violinist with the unique gift of projecting his talents into different musical idioms. That versatility was first demonstrated in the release of two successful discs of Tango arrangements, and now, his mastery of the late Romantic style is showcased once again in the concluding volume of Liszt's complete works for Violin and Piano. While generally not known as a composer of chamber music, Liszt wrote music for violin and piano throughout his career. While several pieces are arrangements of songs or works originally composed for piano solo, many are original compositions and explore the same stylistic explorations that can be found in Liszt's more famous compositions - including the use of folk materials, harmonic and melodic experimentations and cyclical forms.
The Yorkshire Post (UK) praised Eichorn's first volume of Liszt (HÄN CD 98.588), writing:
"Discovering virtuoso masterpieces is rare, even more so when they come from a very famous composer. The nine pieces represent about half of Liszt's output for violin and piano, ranging from the gypsy inspired 'Die drei Zigeuner', full of technical fireworks, to the imposing Grand Duo concertante. They are played with phenomenally clean articulation by Friedmann Eichhorn, his mix of technical fireworks with honey and cream tone fills the works with understanding. Wonderfully alive accompaniments from Rolf-Dieter Arens."

Nazareth was a Brazilian composer who explored the fusion of Afro-Brazilian musical elements and European classical traditions. His concerts were mainly at theatres, hotels, and cinemas; especially at the famous Cinema Odeon in Rio de Janeiro, where his performances would take place at the waiting room of the cinema and where he became so popular, that people used to go to the Odeon to hear Nazareth, instead of watching the films. “After I heard the music of Nazareth, I finally understood the meaning of Brazilian soul.” remarked Darius Milhaud to Villa-Lobos in his arrival in Rio de Janeiro in 1916.
