"Pianisten Anna Christensson kombinerade fin musikalitet med säker klangkänsla på debutalbumet med stycken av Henning Mankell. Också på den nya skivan, med verk av Hilding Rosenberg, ger hennes samtidigt distinkta och avrundade anslag upphov till lätt eufori. Debussy, som anas i 20-talsverken "Suite" och "Plastiska scener", kunde finna en uttolkare i Anna Christensson. Ibland dominerar hantverket i Hilding Rosenbergs stilbrokiga kompositioner, men dessa tolkningar, även av 40-talsverk som "Sonatin", "Improvisationer" och "Tema med variationer", frigör styckenas musikalitet till skön verkan."
(Svenska Dagbladet)

ANNA CHRISTENSSON, piano

Until the middle of the 20th century most Swedish composers refused to accept new tendencies coming from Paris, Vienna or Berlin. However, also advocates of an avant-garde tonal language existed. Of all people, the 1892 born son of a poor couple looking after the herbary of a convent of nuns in the rural idyll of Bosjökloster, should emerge as the key player of Swedish Modernity: Hilding Rosenberg. He considered himself as pioneer, even as a guiding light for others. And indeed, the composer's merits are out of all proportion to his quite low name recognition nowadays. The performance of Schönberg's chamber symphony op. 9 in Dresden was a sort of arousal for him. He himself later described it as a "distressing experience, which seemed to turn the common understanding how to compose music upside down." From this impulse his first string quartet was born, a piece which is said to have introduced atonality to Sweden. Hilding Rosenberg became one of the most important personalities of Swedish musical life of the 20th century. Besides composing his own music, he made contemporary music as well as old masters available to the public as a conductor - he had studied with Hermann Scherchen among others. From 1932 until 1934 he even managed the Royal Swedish Opera in Stockholm. His personal contacts were far-reaching. Among the dramatists working with him were Bertold Brecht and the elderly Thomas Mann, whom Rosenberg visited in the USA. Numerous official awards and distinctions mark the meritorious career of a man, who on paper is considered the "father of Swedish modernity", but whose fame as composer is still somewhat secret.

The Goldberg Variations' alternation of connection and freedom, fantasy and strict form, was able to lead in a hitherto unknown way to a higher unity and raise them to the rank of a real compendium of the art of variation, which particularly strongly influenced Beethoven, Brahms and Reger.The American pianist Tzimon Barto shows us his own fascinating interpretation - a new focus to this masterwork with Barto's well-known sensibility.

RE-MASTERED

This CD is a double remembrance: In 2009, both German baritone Hermann Prey and Australian pianist Geoffrey Parsons would have celebrated their 80th birthday. Both died in the 1990's at the age of 69, respectively 66. Their recording of German popular ballads with adaptations by Johannes Brahms and the participation of soprano singer Pamela Coburn is from 1987. It shows an enormous mastership: Hermann Prey's silky timbre matches perfectly with Brahm's muted colors. His precise articulation and the adequately simple arrangement show the beauty of these Lied adaptations. Geoffrey Parsons was renowned for being one of the best Lieder pianists of his generation. His gift was his ability to play difficult passages in a natural way and nonchalant way.

RE-MASTERED

Johann Christoph Friedrich Bach (1732-1795) was also called the "Bach from Brückeburg". This small residence in northern Germany was J. C. F. Bach's working place for 45 years. He was appointed at the age of eighteen as chamber musician and made a career as court chapel master. Stylistically, the three cantatas of this CD are works of the transition period between the Late Baroque and Early Classic. These three cantatas are all about the subject of change: the metamorphosis of a statue into a human being ("Pygmalion"), the visionary transmutation of the reality into a delusional picture ("Die Amerikanerin"), and the transformation of a human being into a God of the Seas ("Ino"). Always it is love to force the change from one state to the other, with or without the help of gods or by mere genius living in one's heart. After 20 years since their release, the representations have not lost a bit of their freshness or stylistic competence. In June 2008, Hermann Max was awarded with the Bach medal of the city of Leipzig for his merits for the music of Johann Sebastian Bach and his family.

Haydn’s Serenade in D was composed in Salzburg in 1767. The ten movement work displays Haydn’s affinity for chamber compositions. Founded in 1986, the Virtuosi Saxoniae is made up of principal members of the Dresden Staatskapelle. The ensemble concerns itself with 18th century European music, devoting themselves to the great figures of the Hasse era.
