Alpha försöker återskapa Beethovens sound!
Orchester Wiener Akdemie gör succé med sitt ambitiösa projekt: Under ledning av Martin Haselböck är de i färd med att spela in Beethovens samtliga orkesterverk på tidstrogna instrument, i de olika konsertsalar i Wien där musiken framfördes för första gången. I dag släpps volym 5 i serien ”Resound Beethoven”, med Symfoni nr 9. På cd:n med teatermusik medverkar självaste John Malkovich som recitatör. Båda till specialpris just nu!

Musikälskarnas och kritikernas favorit, Alpha, har många speciella soliststjärnor i sitt stall. Violinisten Patricia Kopatchinskaja är känd för att spela barfota och hennes skiva från i höstas fick stor uppmärksamhet för sina säregna Schuberttolkningar. Pianisten Olivier Cavé brukar förbluffa sin publik med att kunna de flesta av Scarlattis sonater utantill (han skrev 555 stycken!). På senaste skivan tolkar han dock tre av Mozarts pianokonserter. Just nu finns båda dessa album till specialpris!

Image Resound Beethoven, Vol.5: Symphony No. 9
The Orchester Wiener Akademie and its conductor Martin Haselböck continue their RESOUND Beethoven series. The aim of this project is to record the complete Beethoven symphonies on period instruments in the venues where they were first performed, scrupulously respecting the layout of the orchestra 200 years ago, and also that of the chorus, which at that time was positioned in front of the orchestra. Volume 5 is devoted to the monumental Ninth Symphony with its famous ‘Ode to Joy’. The work’s premiere took place in May 1824 at the Kärntnertortheater in Vienna, which no longer exists. The symphony was performed again shortly afterwards in the Grosser Redoutensaal of the Hofburg Palace in Vienna. It is in this hall that the present recording was made in 2015. To complement the CD, Alpha offers a DVD with a documentary presenting the RESOUND Beethoven project: an enthralling film with numerous interviews on the genesis of the project and the creation of the symphonies.

Wiener Akademie Orchester / Martin Haselböck

With RESOUND we bring the orchestral works of Beethoven back to the halls and theatres of their Viennese premieres or other venues where they received their earliest performances. Four of the six venues where first performances of one or more of the nine symphonies were held still exist today, as do the eight Viennese halls and theatres where the composer’s works were performed in his lifetime. Our orchestral forces correspond in size and instrumentarium to those used by the composer, and our performances even respect unusual platform layouts, such as placing the chorus in front of the orchestra in Symphony no. 9.

Our producer Stephan Reh masterfully captures the specific acoustical qualities of each room: the mellow full-ness of the Baroque Landhaussaal, the powerful intimacy of the Eroica-Saal in the Palais Lobkowitz, the trans-parency of the Old University Hall, the dry clarity of the Theater in der Josefstadt, and the voluminous acoustic of the Redoutensaal, in Beethoven’s day the largest concert venue available in Vienna.

Theatre Music - the dialogue in the service of great poetry - is the focus of this recording. We have already been able to perform Egmont with several renowned actors. That the part of the narrator is here taken by Herbert Föttinger, currently the director of the theatre for which Beethoven himself wrote music, is beautifully fit-ting. Christopher Hampton has modeled the combined texts of Goethe and Grillparzer into his poetic English translation. It fills us with great joy and gratitude that John Malkovich - with whom we have already had the pleasure of collaborating for several years - has taken on the part of the narrator in the English version. With our interpretations we wish to offer you music in the sound of its own time: we want to add to the possibilities of historical instruments the sound and the aura of the concert halls in which the composer himself conducted and experienced his works. At every step in Vienna one encounters places and signs of a great musical past: to make historic architecture echo with great music and to communicate that perceived authenticity to modern ears – that is the ultimate goal of RESOUND Beethoven.

”What impresses most is the sheer aliveness of Kopatchinskaja’s music-making”
(The Guardian)

A pillar of chamber music repertoire, Schubert’s String Quartet No. 14 in D minor, known as Death and the Maiden, was written in 1824 after Schubert suffered through a series of debilitating illnesses and realized that he was dying. It is the composer’s testament to death, and is named for the theme of the second movement which was taken from an 1817 publication of the same title. “With the wonderful Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra we are presently exploring Schubert’s quatuor ‘Death and the maiden.’ Of course we have to include Schubert’s earlier song with the same title on the poem of Matthias Claudius. This song belongs to the medieval tradition of the dance of death. Therefore we also play “Toden Tanz” (with poor me dancing), an ancient death dance written up by the German organ player August Norminger… we also play one of Dowland’s Pavans from “Seven Teares.” Add to this “Moro lasso”… In between we also refresh our ears with other unsettling works by modern composers…” (Patricia Kopatchinskaja) The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra is based in Saint Paul, Minnesota. The orchestra presents more than 130 concerts and educational programs annually across the Minneapolis and St. Paul area. They are regularly heard on “Performance Today” and SymphonyCast, American Public Media’s nationally syndicated radio programs.

“Stylish and nimble performances with a light Italian twist” (Classic FM)

This album combines a well known pianist who has already recorded multiple successful albums and a conductor whose ventures into Mozart are always equally successful. + Olivier Cave was a student of Nelson Goerner, Maria Tipo, and Aldo Ciccolini. His playing is refined and virtuosic, and his recordings of Clementi, Haydn, and Scarlatti have all been praised by audiences and critics alike. + Conductor Rinaldo Alessandrini formed this orchestra specifically for this recording. He and the ensemble Divertissement will embark on a European tour centered around this program me along with Mozart’s symphonies. + This program me follow’s the composer from his youth to his maturity, from Concerto no. 5 was written when Mozart was only 17, all the way to No. 25 which was written at his peak in the same year as Le Nozze di Figaro.

"Gens har otroligt vacker timbre."

Véronique Gens, soprano
Susan Manoff, piano

A great Mozartian, Gens also excels in Gluck, Berlioz and Offenbach and has sung with the greatest, from Claudio Abbado to Marc Minkowski and Frans Brüggens.

Her rich discography features a wide range of repertoire, but up until now it included only one recording of mélodies, despite the fact that she is unanimously recognized as one of the world's most eminent ambassadresses of the French art song.

With her accompanist Susan Manoff, a connoisseur of vocal music and a tremendously sensitive pianist, she has assembled this programme devoted to songs she loves, mixing well-known gems and rarities such as the superb Néère, from Reynaldo Hahn's Muses latines.

Image Le théâtre musical de Telemann
"Tremendous fun!", "Scintillating!", wrote the journalists of Diapason and Classica about the most recent recording of Olivier Fortin and his ensemble, devoted to the rarely heard Romanus Weichlein, which received every honor from the French musical press (Diapason d'Or, Choc de Classica, FFFF Telerama). This year, the Canadian harpsichordist and his loyal band have decided to record Telemann, the 250th anniversary of whose death will be commemorated in 2017. Two anonymous musicians from the city of Hamburg wrote in 1728 that "Handel composes music" but Telemann composes "music and affects". The overture-suites by Telemann presented on this recording are written in a "mimetic' style: Les Nations, the Concerto Polonois, La Bizarre and the Burlesque de Quixotte explore a vast range of subjects and, even more than all his other works, reveal a man of the theatre, widely read, curious a humorist and a shrewd observer of the physical and political world around him.

Veckans toppnotering i Musikrevyn (vecka 9):
"Otroligt välgjord - Antonini kan sin sak"

The year 2017 will mark the 250th anniversary of the death of Georg Philipp Telemann, one of the most prolific composers of the Baroque era. Giovanni Antonini and Il Giardino Armonico have taken this opportunity to pay tribute to his eclecticism in a programme juxtaposing works that move constantly between French and Italian stylistic traditions. On this release, Giovanni Antonini not only directs the ensemble, but also returns to the recorder, his own instrument of choice (as it was the composer’s), and performs the Suite in A minor, the Concerto in C major and the Concerto da camera in G minor. We will also discover a curiosity, a sonata for chalumeaux. This instrument of folk origins is comparable to the clarinet, and Telemann was the first composer to show an interest in it. Like volume 3 of the Haydn2032 Edition, this programme will be released on both CD and LP, thus asserting the common desire of the Alpha label and the Milanese ensemble to make these new recordings available to lovers of vinyl, who are more and more numerous.
