  1. Artist: Paolo Grazia, Orchestra Senzaspine, Matteo Parmeggiani, Tommaso Ussardi Title: Pasculli: Fantasies on Themes by Giuseppe Verdi Year Of Release: 2020 Label: Tactus Genre: Classical Quality: flac lossless Total Time: 01:06:44 Total Size: 287 mb Tracklist --------- 01. Simpatici ricordi della "Traviata" (Arr. S. Scinaldi for Oboe & Strings) 02. Fantasia sul "Trovatore" (Arr. S. Scinaldi for Oboe & Strings) 03. Rimembranze del "Rigoletto" (Arr. S. Scinaldi for Oboe & Strings) 04. Gran concerto su temi dell'opera "I vespri siciliani" (Arr. S. Scinaldi for Oboe & Strings) 05. Fantasia 2 sopra motivi dell'opera "Un ballo in maschera" (Arr. S. Scinaldi for English Horn & Strings) 06. Amelia (Un pensiero del Ballo in Maschera) [Arr. S. Scinaldi for English Horn & Strings] The endless genre of operatic fantasy, which explodes and spreads without embankments in the musical culture of the entire Italian nineteenth century, has already been extensively explored in various Tactus productions dedicated both to chamber and sacred music. This time, however, the main protagonists are the oboe and the English horn, fascinating orchestral instruments that, thanks to the great virtuoso from Palermo, Antonino Pasculli, take part in that great musical activity - attended by myriads of Italian and European composers - that unconditionally suffered the charm of Italian melodrama. In this case they are the immortal melodies of Giuseppe Verdi - one of the most successful opera composers of all time - inspiring the fantasies of Pasculli, in the interpretation (both acrobatic to the oboe and cantabile and expressive to the English horn) of the master Paolo Grazia accompanied by the Orchestra Senzaspine conducted by the masters Matteo Parmeggiani and Tommaso Ussardi.

  2. Artist: Parkanyi Quartet Title: Haydn: String Quartets Op. 33, Nos. 3, 2 & 5 Year Of Release: 2007 Label: Praga Digitals Genre: Classical Quality: FLAC (image+.cue,log,scans) Total Time: 57:56 Total Size: 304 Mb Tracklist: String Quartet No. 32 in C major ("Bird"), Op. 33/3, H. 3/39: 01. 1. Allegro moderato [0:06:45.47] 02. 2. Scherzo. Allegretto [0:03:22.56] 03. 3. Adagio ma non troppo [0:06:29.66] 04. 4. Rondo.

Allegretto [0:05:47.65] Performers: Párkányí Quartet: Isrtván Párkányí & Heinz Oberdorfer (violins) Ferdinand Erblich (viola) Michael Müller (cello) These three quartets from opus 33 define the archetype of the 'Classical' string quartet, a genre that would henceforth blossom independently of its patrons. Haydn makes of it a music that is light, subtle, intentionally humorous, concise and radiant, capable of leaving private drawing rooms for popular concerts. Mozart immediately detected its originality as would the classic composers of the...20th Century. Download links: [Hidden Content] [Hidden Content]

Toccata, Adagio & Fugue in C Major, BWV 564: III. Fugue The Finland based German organist Susanne Kujala has gained the reputation to be one of Finland's most outstanding organists. Contemporary music is an essential part of her work: she has premiered over 50 works and two, soon three concertos. Like contemporary music sometimes does, the organ works of J. S. Bach felt very modern to the people of his time. Bach's works are still fresh and inspiring as the program of this album proves. "Bach on Porthan Organ" continues Susanne Kujala's series of introducing Finland's organs to a larger audience. Her debut release "Organ Triptychon" was recorded on three significant instruments of Helsinki. This new album features the Porthan Organ of St. Lawrence Church in Janakkala. The series is to be continued with her upcoming release "Finnish Organ Music of the 21th Century", which has been recorded already on the organs of Turku Cathedral, Helsinki Kallio and St. Paul's Church. Organ builder Martti Porthan made the organ building style of the German Baroque alive in Finland. All main features of the Porthan organ of St. Lawrence in Janakkala are based on the famous Huß Schnitger organ of Ss. Cosmae et Damiani in Stade. This album is the 25th anniversary recording of the Porthan organ, which was built in 1993.

  5. Artist: Sviatoslav Richter Title: Richter meets Beethoven: Sonatas for piano Nos 12, 17 & 23 Year Of Release: 2020 Label: Jube Classic Genre: Classical Quality: FLAC (tracks) [48kHz/24bit] Total Time: 1:05:04 Total Size: 647 / 269 MB Tracklist: Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827) Sonata Nr. 12 in a Flat Major, op. 12 01 Andante con variaziono 02 Scherzo. Allegro molto 03 Marcia funebre sulla morte d'un Eroe 04 Allegro Sonata No. 17 in D Minor, op. 31, No. 2 05 Largo - Allegro 06 Adagio 07 Allegretto Sonata No. 23 in F Minor, Op. 57 "Appassionata" 08 Allegro assai 09 Andante con moto 10 Allegro ma non troppo Having learned the fundamentals of music from his father, Sviatoslav Teofilovich Richter taught himself the piano and had already given public concerts before entering the Moscow Conservatory in 1937. While still a student, Richter won first prize at the All-Union Contest of Performers of 1945. His playing earned him considerable renown, and by the time of his graduation in 1947 he had devoted fans. In 1949 he garnered the coveted Stalin Prize. Richter gave the 1942 premiere of Sergei Prokofiev's Piano Sonata No. 6 -- the composer's first work in that form for years, and the first one he did not premiere himself. This resulted in wild acclaim for both performer and composer. Thereafter, Richter was a great proponent of Prokofiev's music, premiering also the Seventh and the Ninth Sonatas, the latter of which is dedicated to him. Though word of Richter's excellence (and occasional poor-quality recordings) had spread outside of Russia, his foreign engagements were limited to Eastern Bloc countries (and, in one case, China) where Soviet officials felt there was reduced risk of defection. However, his 1958 performance of Prokofiev's Fifth Piano Concerto with the Philadelphia Orchestra (on tour in Leningrad) generated such excitement that he was finally permitted to tour the United States, further bolstering his reputation as a virtuoso. Engagements in all of world's musical centers followed. Richter was known as a pianist of transcendent abilities, particularly adept at highlighting the nuances of different styles. Though his interests focused primarily on music of Beethoven, and Prokofiev, he was also highly regarded for his Schubert, Schumann, Bach, Debussy, and Ravel; and in the early 1960s he made a memorable recording of Benjamin Britten's Piano Concerto with the composer conducting. Richter did not favor studio recordings; therefore, most of his recordings are from live performances. Many of them, particularly those from Soviet concerts, suffer from indifferent sound quality and excessive audience noise, but his playing had an electric quality that transcended these handicaps. The pianist earned a reputation for being difficult and aloof. He was notoriously apt to cancel performances on whims, or arrive late without explanation or apology. However, those who heard him were rarely disappointed. He preferred intimate concert settings over big auditoriums, and thus returned many times to the Aldeburgh and Spoleto Festivals. He was the centerpiece of the Fêtes Musicales, held annually beginning in 1964 at Grange de Meslay, near Tours. Among his greatest recordings are his Schubert sonatas, Rachmaninov and Prokofiev concertos, Liszt concertos (these have the benefits of first-rate sound), and his Schumann. He has also served as a chamber musician and accompanist, playing piano duets with Britten, and accompanying Elisabeth Schwarzkopf and Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, among others. ~ Rovi Staff Download links: [Hidden Content] [Hidden Content] [Hidden Content] [Hidden Content]

This new release features a recording from the world premiere performance of the opera in Metzingen Stadthalle, Bad Urach, Germany, October 4th, 2002. The opera is set in Venice in 1727. In the house of Marcello, a musician and poet, two of his pupils Rosana and Faustina wait for their teacher who is late for their singing lesson. Marcello at last arrives, apologizes, and announces that instead of their lessons he wants them to sing for a guest of his, the famous composer Adolph Hasse, from Germany. Rosana sings first: a sad song about unrequited love. Hasse praises her warmly for singing from the heart, whereas Marcello is just puzzled by her sudden ability to find the correct tone. Faustina immediately recognizes that Rosana is singing about her love for Marcello and is irritated that he cannot see it himself. She then sings a joyful song about a nightingale, which leaves both Hasse and Marcello captivated. Hasse expresses his profound admiration for Marcello and she invites him to accompany her to a party that evening. Faustina is preparing for the evening and her thoughts turn to Hasse, and she realizes that she loves him. Hasse has quietly arrived and, overhearing her soliloquy, immediately tells Faustina that he has fallen in love with her too. Marcello, masked, arrives and stands outside Faustina's rooms, consumed with love for her and intending to sing her a serenade. He hears the gondola bearing Faustina and Hasse approaching, and jealously listens to their loving conversation. Hiding while they enter her apartment, he vows revenge on Hasse. Marcello wants to pick a quarrel and both men draw their swords. Faustina, who has heard the commotion outside, opens her balcony window, sees the events below and collapses with a scream. Hasse leaves, telling Marcello that he may keep his life as a pledge of their friendship... Download links: [Hidden Content] [Hidden Content]

Golliwogg's Cakewalk Il y a des enregistrements qui s'imposent avec une telle évidence que toute critique parait inutile pour ne pas dire futile. Que dire encore de neuf à propos de cette rencontre entre un compositeur et son interprète ? Que le piano de Benedetti-Michelangeli est cristallin, pyrotechnique, que son clavier semble paré de toutes les nuances de couleurs les plus infimes ? Point de maniérismes déplacés, points de langueurs "début de siècle", mais une simplicité d'expression qui fait de Debussy un frère occidental des auteurs de haïkus japonais.

Rondò arlecchinesco, Op. 46, BV 266 (11:51) Busoni never came closer to his dream of Italian music than with that night on May 11 1917 of double performance in Zurich, which he calls himself 'La Nuova Commedia dell' Arte' I ('Turandot') and II ('Arlecchino'). In the unusually short time from December 1916 to March 1917 Busoni reworked the already existing material to the Incidental Music of Gozzis 'Turandot' into an opera. This happen 4 years before Puccini started to work on the same contend. 'Arleccino', though in immediate neighbourhood to 'Dr. Faust' looking almost like a secondary work, is perhaps the composer's actual key work. The speaking hero of his 'theatralische Capriccio' represents a role model, which is at times more important to him than his aesthetic Faust, especially as the the World War increases.

  10. Artist: Gyorgy Ligeti Title: Clear or Cloudy: Complete Recordings on Deutsche Grammophon Year Of Release: 2006 Label: Deutsche Grammophon Genre: Classical/Avantgarde Quality: APE (image+.cue,log) Total Time: 05:09:11 Total Size: 1.04 GB Deutsche Grammophon's budget-priced, four-CD collection of all the works by György Ligeti in its catalog has many things to commend it, beginning with the title. Clear or Cloudy is a profoundly astute description of the composer's career, encompassing both the great sound clouds of his micropolyphonic work of the 1960s, such as Atmosphères, Volumina, Lux aeterna, and Lontano, and the crystalline clarity of his early years, demonstrated in Six Bagatelles for wind quintet and his first String Quartet, as well as in his Etudes pour piano and Piano Concerto from his final period. The performances here are extraordinary, and some are legendary. In Volumina, Gerd Zacher wrings an incredible variety of sonic possibilities from the organ and shapes them into a chilling aural experience. Aventures and Nouvelles Aventures, with singers Jane Manning, Mary Thomas, and William Pearson and the Ensemble InterContemporain, led by Pierre Boulez, are especially assured, and lead the listener on a frightening, comic, cryptic emotional roller coaster ride. The radiant performances of Atmosphères and Lontano by Claudio Abbado and the Vienna Philharmonic make the most of the scores' glistening mysteries. If this were intended as a survey of Ligeti's career, one could quibble over the omissions -- the Requiem; the Trio for horn, violin, and piano; and the fact that there are only two of the piano etudes -- but given the fact that it is a reissue of everything Deutsche Grammophon happened to have in its archive, it is a remarkably comprehensive and representative collection that offers a broad and detailed view of the composer's output. It's an ideal introduction to Ligeti for anyone coming to his remarkable work for the first time, and it is also expansive and diverse enough to interest those who are already fans. The set contains over five hours of music, and the program booklet includes an insightful essay by Paul Griffiths. Surprisingly, for a collection coming from so many recorded sources, the sound is consistently excellent, with the appropriate ambience and presence for the various works.

Baal shem, B. 47 (Excerpts Arr. for Cello & Orchestra): No. 2, Nigun (6:53) Significant concertos by three great composers now join the rich and multifaceted repertoire of our new series featuring »Cello Concertos by Jewish Composers in Exile.« The Cello Concerto in three movements composed by Paul Ben-Haim for Richard Katz in 1962 employs virtuosic agility and the expressive flexibility of the solo instrument and exemplarily demonstrates how Ben-Haim was able to fit the stylistic elements characteristic of the Eastern Mediterranean into the structures provided by European forms. Ernest Bloch originally wrote his Symphony for Cello and Orchestra for trombone and orchestra. The enormous size of the orchestra contributes to the exotic panorama with tone colors reminiscent of Schelomo and the other six works of the »Jewish cycle« completed by him forty years earlier. Erich Wolfgang Korngold's Cello Concerto was originally composed for Deception, but some months after this film had premiered in the cinemas, he reworked the concerto, which in its concert hall version consists of one short movement and among other things a development section featuring fully refined counterpoint and heavy percussive effects.

Sacrificial Dance (The Chosen One) [0:04:40.46] Performers: The 5 Browns Among the many recorded versions of Igor Stravinsky's ballet The Rite of Spring that appeared around the work's centennial year, several were of piano transcriptions, in most cases Stravinsky's own four-hand piano arrangement. The 5 Browns' live recording presents a five-pianos version by Jeffrey Shumway that shows the family of virtuoso pianists in various combinations, from the single note at the opening to all ten hands by the ballet's clangorous end. The group deserves kudos for performing this tour de force without scores, and for making it work without a conductor. It's still a rough sounding interpretation, somewhat imprecise in rhythms and a bit opaque in textures, with some disagreement about dynamics. One is tempted to contrast it with the exquisite recording by Lidija and Sanja Bizjak, which uncannily imitates orchestral tone colors, or the wonderful solo version by Jon Kimura Parker, to point out how much subtler they are than the Browns, and how unnecessary it is to have five pianists doing the work of one or two. The group also presents arrangements by Greg Anderson of three movements from Gustav Holst's The Planets (Mars, the Bringer of War, Neptune, the Mystic, and Jupiter, The Bringer of Jollity) and Camille Saint-Saëns' Danse macabre, inspired by Franz Liszt's virtuosic solo arrangement. To the extent that the 5 Browns are sincere ambassadors for classical music and their concerts bring in new listeners, they deserve credit for being an unpredictable and exciting act. But their performance of The Rite of Springs is probably better seen on stage than heard on CD. Download links: [Hidden Content] [Hidden Content]

One of these cases concerns the Milanese Maria Teresa Agnesi, a precocious musician and composer - she starts writing music and performing in the academies of her city already at an early age - who dedicated her works to the major political authorities of her world.The 'Arie con Istromenti' dated 1749 are in fact dedicated to His Royal Highness Maria Antonia Walpurgis Symphorosa, wife of the heir to the throne of Saxony, educated and enlightened (both she and her husband were part of the Accademia Romana d'Arcadia), that deeply admired the work, thanking Agnesi on a letter with a heartfelt praise for the compositions.

  16. Artist: Elias Quartet Title: Schumann: String Quartets Nos. 2 & 3 Year Of Release: 2017 Label: Alpha Classics Genre: Classical Quality: FLAC (image+.cue,log,scans) Total Time: 57:34 Total Size: 268 Mb Tracklist: Robert Schumann [1]-[4] String Quartet No.2 in F major, Op.41 No.2 [5]-[8] String Quartet No.3 in A major, Op.41 No.3 Performers: Elias Quartet Sara Bitlloch, violin Donald Grant, violin Martin Saving, viola Marie Bitlloch, cello In 2010 the Elias Quartet played the first of Schumann's three string quartets at Wigmore Hall - a richly characterised, open-hearted reading that was recorded and released on that venue's in-house label. Now, at last, the Elias complete the cycle with concert recordings from Potton Hall in Suffolk. If you were as impressed by the Wigmore performance as I was, rest assured that these new accounts do not disappoint, for I find them even more absorbingly detailed and emotionally generous. Schumann composed these quartets as a birthday gift for Clara, writing at white heat so that the three works were completed in just seven weeks. The Doric Quartet (Chandos, 12/11) capture this sense of urgency, though with a magical, quicksilver touch. The Elias, on the other hand, take their time. It's not that their performances are so much leisurely as they are elastic. The music breathes in their hands; and even when they stretch a phrase as if to feel its emotional weight, it still sounds natural and right. And it's not that they only pull; they push, too. In the opening movement of the F major Quartet, for instance, listen to how they make the exposition repeat feel more eager and excitable. Then savour the exquisite rubato at 4'08" in the Andante quasi variazioni, with its foreshadowing of a Mahlerian Ländler. Some may be irritated by the way the Elias ease gradually into the main tempo of the finale; I'm charmed by it, particularly as it's played differently each time this tune returns. The A major Quartet is, to my ears, the jewel of the set, and the Elias play it with profound tenderness. How rapturously they play the first movement's slow introduction, for example; even the rests are made to sound as expressively necessary as the notes themselves. And in the second theme of the Allegro proper, where the cello sings to a palpitating accompaniment (at 1'36"), there's a vulnerability so touching I could imagine Schumann's heart asking 'is this love too good to be true?' Unlike the Stradivari Quartet (RCA, 4/18), the Elias are meticulous in observing dynamic markings, and their pianissimo playing can produce shivers of pleasure. Indeed, they find eloquence in the smallest detail, like the second violin's strumming grace notes at 3'34" in the Adagio. I could go on enumerating the myriad glories of these performances, but you get the idea. I continue to be delighted by the Doric's recording - and the Zehetmair's (ECM, 6/03) - but the Elias's has instantly become my favourite, and I can't recommend it urgently enough.

Rondeau (5:32) Ten years after the release of the first CD featuring violin concertos by Rodolphe Kreutzer, CPO now releases his Concertos Nos. 1, 6, and 7, again in interpretations by Laurent Albrecht Breuninger. Even today Kreutzer continues to be ranked with the great violin virtuosos of his time and along with Viotti, Rode, and Baillot is regarded as a central figure of the French violin school. As FonoForum wrote of Vol. 1 in 2011, Breuninger 'does outstanding justice to the virtuosic demands. He adds brilliant polish to his solos, absolutely in a manner reminiscent of Paganini'. Kreutzer wrote his nineteen violin concertos during his active years as a virtuoso. After he had found it necessary to abandon his solo career in 1810, he did not compose a single other such work. Although the concertos adhere to the traditional three-movement design, they contain numerous innovative elements, formal surprises, motivic-thematic interdependencies, and genial ideas.

Massig rasch Ever since it was founded, the Swiss chamber ensemble Trio Fontane has consisted of Andrea Wiesli, Noëlle Grüebler and Jonas Kreienbühl. The trio was formed in 2002 and received instruction from Ulrich Koella and Stephan Goerner (Carmina Quartet) at the Musikhochschule in Zurich. The ensemble was judged the best piano trio at the 2007 Migros Culture Percentage chamber music competition and accepted into the "Young Musicians" artist exchange. The three performers received further support from the Thiébaud-Frey Foundation, the Hans Schaeuble Foundation and the International Herzogenberg Society. The Music Department of the Zentralbibliothek Zürich was set up in 1971 and rapidly established itself as an academic collection of European status. Alongside large holdings of printed and recorded music, the Department is home to one of the world's largest collections of Wagneriana and now serves as a major repository of Swiss music manuscripts from the past 200 years. The Central Library wishes to put the materials entrusted to it to the best possible use in many different ways. Accordingly, it has begun a series of releases with music from its acquisitions, from tenor songs by Zwingli to music of the late 20th century. It also runs its own lunchtime concert series Mittagsmusik im Predigerchor in which each programme features at least one work that is held in the Central Library as a manuscript, first edition or early printed document. On the album you can hear the New Year's pieces of the Zentralbibliothek Zürich: the Piano Trio op. 20 by Hans Huber and the Piano Trio op. 1 by Hermann Goetz.

Percy Grainger) [0:03:59.52] Performers: Benjamin Grosvenor - piano Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra James Judd - conductor Following the success of his first Decca release of solo piano music by Chopin, Liszt, and Ravel, Benjamin Grosvenor demonstrates his aptitude in the concerto repertoire on his second CD, Rhapsody in Blue, recorded with James Judd and the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. This is a refreshing change from the usual Tchaikovsky or Rachmaninov concertos one hears from young artists eager to impress, and Grosvenor is clever enough to play not only engaging concertos by Saint-Saëns, Ravel, and Gershwin, but to toss in short bon-bons by these composers to sweeten the program. Grosvenor has sometimes described as a Romantic pianist, which suggests anything from excessive sentimentality to headstrong individualism, but this is something of an exaggeration. It is true that Grosvenor has the passion and expressive grandeur for music of the period, notably displayed in Saint-Saëns' grandiose Piano Concerto No. 2 in G minor, but he also possesses a modern sensibility that is ideal for the lighter textures and piquant expressions found in Ravel's effervescent Piano Concerto in G major and Gershwin's insouciant Rhapsody in Blue (performed here in the original jazz band version arranged by Ferde Grofé). Grosvenor is much more rounded in his tastes and abilities than may be apparent from reviews, but given time, his judgment in programming will be as obvious as his prodigious skills at the keyboard. Decca's reproduction is close-up and vivid, so the piano has real presence, and its volume almost eclipses the orchestra at times. Download links: [Hidden Content] [Hidden Content]

Titte til hinanden One of the very few Danish tenors known all over the world for his beautiful voice and strong stage presence here let his hear down and sings popular Danish songs in the crooner style done with charm and utter joy. Helge Rosvænge was the leading tenor not only in Germany but sang in many countries even into old age he performed at Carnegie Hall, New York. These utterly rare recordings are here collected for the first time and newly transferred using the best possible digital noise reducing system. Helge Rosvænge, who was to become one of German operas most brilliant tenors of the last century, was actually born in Copenhagen, Denmark, on August 29, 1897. He passed away in Munich in 1972. While working for a degree in chemistry he also found time for singing lessons and appeared in smaller Copenhagen theatres. In the end opera won over chemistry and Rosvænge made his debut in Germany, a country which would be his new home. He was happy there, and his entire singing career is linked to Germany and Austria, although he was frequently in Copenhagen during the 1920s and 1930s. Rosvænges voice endured to old age. His career as a singer spanned more than 50 years. Although inevitably the original shimmer and ring had faded some, he was still able at the age of 66, thanks to a fabulous vocal technique, to delight an audience at New Yorks Carnegie Hall.
