Image Violin Concertos
After Liya Petrova won joint first prize at the 2016 Carl Nielsen International Violin Competition, jury President Nikolaj Znaider declared he had been “absolutely blown away by how she had absorbed the Nielsen violin concerto - how it had become hers”. From her debut album on Orchid Classics you can hear just why she made such an impression on those who heard her performance. The Strad praised the ‘iron will’ Petrova brought to Nielsen’s concerto; a fortitude which is matched on this recording by the sensitivity in her approach to the first violin concerto of Sergei Prokofiev.

The great inventor and futurist Nikola Tesla, from whom the Tesla Quartet takes its name, talked of the invisible yet inseparable ties which bind people together. Through performance, teaching and outreach, the Tesla Quartet has for ten years strived to tap into this palpable feeling, using music to create meaningful connections with their audiences. Celebrating this first decade together, the quartet’s debut album draws upon the need for reflection, and to look upon the familiar in a new light. None did this more effectively than Igor Stravinsky, two centuries after Haydn pioneered the string quartet, and Ravel’s masterful contribution takes its place as a staple of the repertoire.

Jiyoon Lee was joint first prize winner of the 2016 Carl Nielsen International Violin Competition, with jury President Nikolaj Znaider exclaiming that ‘her playing was immediately a breath of fresh air…she is a terrific violinist and I can see her going very far…’ Such praise has marked Jiyoon out as a genuine talent to watch, already being engaged as soloist with the Swedish Chamber, Seoul Philharmonic and Philharmonia orchestras. This, her debut recording, brings the much loved violin concerto of Erich Korngold together with the lesser known, highly demanding work of Carl Nielsen. It was Jiyoon’s interpretation of the latter which led Znaider to continue ‘She has lightness in her playing and yet she is a musician who takes very seriously her craft.’

Image Piano Trios
Trio con Brio Copenhagen

From the first note, Trio con Brio exudes class … both explosive and exquisitely intimate – aspects that this performance delivers with compelling panache.”
Strad Magazine, Joanne Talbot (Marts 2016)

" excellent performance all round, showcasing an airtight ensemble, but also these Danish-based musicians’ flair for colouristic detail. They are consistently compelling, whether in the howling opening statement, the tender dips into lyricism or the tightly coiled whirring that constitutes the Scherzo….any group would be hard-pressed to imitate this blend of verve and poise.”
Gramophone, Hannah Nepil (Februar 2016)

The award-winning Trio con Brio Copenhagen releases an album of Tchaikovsky and Smetana Piano Trios, works which are widely acknowledged as milestones in the chamber music repertoire.

"One of the greatest performances of chamber music I've ever encountered ..." Ken Keaton, American Record Guide, on an earlier album.

Trio con Brio Copenhagen has won most of the international competitions for piano trios, including the ARD (Munich), Vittorio Gui (Florence) and Norway's Trondheim Competition.

Roger Sayer is at the forefront of British choral and organ music, recognised both as a prize-winning organist, and as an acclaimed Choral Director with some of the UK’s finest choirs. Sayer has even performed as the organ soloist in Hans Zimmer’s Oscar-nominated score for the film Interstellar. Mozart called the organ the “King of Instruments”, and this release certainly showcases its majestic qualities. Mendelssohn’s Organ Sonata No.1 was inspired by Bach, and exudes an air of gravitas and profundity whilst enjoying the organ’s variety of sonorities. Bach also influenced 20th-century composers Sigfrid Karg-Elert and Max Reger, both of whom followed in Bach’s footsteps by moving to Leipzig. Karg-Elert’s Symphonic Chorale is based on Jesu meine Freude by Johann Cruger, and on the notes BACH (B flat, A, C and B natural), while Reger’s chorale-based Fantasia is a work of great virtuosity. The collection ends with a memorable sonata by Liszt-pupil Julius Reubke.

Image Four Elements Volume 1: Water
Celebrated Japanese pianist Yu Kosuge embarks on an exciting project: four releases inspired by the Greek concept of the four elements, Water, Fire, Air, Earth. Many composers have been drawn to the properties of these elements when seeking inspiration for their music, but Kosuge’s theme goes deeper, dating back to her successful Beethoven cycle: “When you understand that Shakespeare’s plays, read ardently by Beethoven, refer to Greek mythology, or that Beethoven himself composed some works based on the Prometheus myth, you would know that an artist who is searching for human nature would surely look to Greek mythology or philosophy...” In Water, Yu Kosuge interprets a rich array of repertoire, from Liszt and Wagner to acclaimed contemporary composer Dai Fujikura. The ‘barcarolle’ takes its rocking rhythms from the motion of a boat: we hear examples by Chopin and Fauré, as well as Venetian Gondola ‘Songs Without Words’ by Mendelssohn.

Image Variations Sérieuses
Award-winning Armenian pianist Lilit Grigoryan explores the art of the variation in her new recording with Orchid Classics entitled VARIATIONS SERIÉUSES. In stunning interpretations combining both virtuosity and integrity, Lilit Grigoryan takes the listener on a journey through this art form, from Busoni’s breathtaking re-imagining of the majestic Chaconne from J.S. Bach’s D minor violin Partita, to Beethoven’s 32 Variations, which range between extreme technical difficulty and expressive moments of quiet simplicity, to Mendelssohn’s grand Variations sérieuses. Alongside these giants of the repertoire are some more rarely-heard gems: Bizet’s sinuous and innovative chromatic variations, and youthful late-Romantic colour from Polish composer Szymanowski.

Image Piano Trios Vol. 2
Following a highly praised first instalment, Trio con Brio Copenhagen continue their journey through the piano trios of Beethoven with Volume II of their twentieth anniversary cycle.

On this recording the youthful Op.1 No.2 is coupled with the trio in E flat major, Op.70 No.2, an altogether more intimate work and one full of the composer’s natural warmth.

Trio con Brio Copenhagen has been at the forefront of Scandinavia’s music scene for almost twenty years, receiving many of the most prestigious prizes for chamber music. The group has also established an enviable reputation internationally, playing regularly in venues such as Carnegie Hall, the Concertgebouw and London’s Wigmore Hall.

Described as “an amazing talent“ by Gustavo Dudamel, Spanish violinist Francisco Fullana will release his debut recording in March 2018 with the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra. Entitled Through the Lens of Time, the recording brings together four modern perspectives reimagining the Baroque tradition: a dialogue that prompts both composers and performers to explore musical giants of the past and place them in their own lives.
The recording begins with Max Richter’s daring reworking of Vivaldi’s Four Seasons and continues with three other works , by Schnittke, Isang Yun and Salvador Brotons, that each provide a unique take on the legacy of the Baroque period.

Danish clarinettist Mathias Kjøller, himself a laureate in the Carl Nielsen Competition and former principal of the Danish Radio Symphony Orchestra, has collaborated with several highly acclaimed musicians for this recording of chamber music works. The album is a testament to the sound worlds created for the clarinet by Schumann, Reinecke, Debussy, Berg and Corigliano. The connection between composers is foremost an emotional, and very melancholic one, ranging from the highly expressive Three Romances by Schumann to Alban Berg’s Adagio, with Corigliano’s Soliloquy serving as a sorrowful coda having been written in memoriam of the composer’s father.

Following her Carnegie Hall recital debut, The Strad hailed Serbian-French cellist Maja Bogdanovic for an "outstanding performance of exceptional tonal beauty and great maturity of interpretation." She has since built an extensive career and an enviable reputation as one of today's leading young cellists, most recently stepping in for Mischa Maisky for a performance of Yusupov's Cello Concerto, with the composer himself conducting. Here, together with long time collaborator Maria Belooussova, Bogdanovic tackles one of the major works of the repertoire in Rachmaninov's sonata, said by the composer to contain equal roles for both cello and piano. The pair also perform 12 Album Leaves, as well as the Ballade op.4, by Reinhold Glière.

Image Requiem
This work by self-proclaimed "non-composer" Christopher Wood pays homage to the enormous grief felt around the UK following the passing of Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother in 2002. A former cancer surgeon who now develops life-saving cancer drugs, Christopher Wood is a pharmaceutical entrepreneur who had, until 2002, never composed a note of music. But when the Queen Mother passed away, Wood was moved by the thousands of people who queued for hours to pay their respects, and felt a strong connection to their grief and sadness, but also their honour, gratitude and patriotic pride. Having been raised in a musical family - Wood’s mother was a soprano in the Welsh National Opera chorus, and he has sung in choirs for his whole life - it is perhaps not surprising that he turned to music as a form of expression. Written around a busy schedule managing a US pharmaceutical company, Wood’s Requiem took eight years to compose. The Requiem was finally recorded and premiered at St John’s Smith Square, London, in 2012.

Imagine a composer, a woman, living during the classical times of late 18th century France. Her country is torn by a terrible revolution and grand revolutionary ideas. It is astonishing that France, who produced great composers throughout music history, failed to produce a great figure during the classical times. Or maybe it has and we don’t know about it. It is hard not to see the similarities between Chopin’s Revolutionary Etude and Montgéroult’s Etude No.107, or between the F minor Fugue and Mendelssohn’s Fugue Op.35/1. Hélène de Montgéroult wrote and published all her music between 1795 and 1812, either before or just around the time Chopin and Mendelssohn were born. It is fitting that the ideas of equality of the French Revolution coincided with the life of a great woman composer. It is fitting that her importance and influence in the history of music be recognized and the oversight corrected.
