"En skiva för alla som oroar sig över romanskonstens försvinnande. För nog utgör jazzpianisten Brad Mehldaus tonsättningar av poeter som Sara Teasdale, EE Cummings och Philip Larkin vår tids motsvarighet till de klassiska romanserna, med intrikat pianoackompanjemang och utsökt balans mellan sång och instrument. Anne Sofie von Otter är den ideala uttolkaren av dessa återhållet laddade melodier. På den mer blandade cd:n ger hon sig modigt in i Monica Zetterlund-land, men mest övertygar von Otter i den franska repertoaren: Léo Ferré, Jacques Brel och Barbara. Och Michel Legrand klär henne perfekt."

Lise de la Salle, piano

- One year after her praised Chopin recording, this is the Lise de la Salle's 6th recording. Once again, it is dedicated to the composer celebrated this year - another giant of the piano music, Franz Liszt. This music fits her playing, based on tremendous technique and sensibility to the contrasts. Works by Liszt already featured on two of her recordings.

- This full solo piano recording offers an unusual and eclectic program. As Bruno Moysan wrote in the essay, "this recording offers a sample of Liszt's piano compositions that is at once eclectic and fairly representative. Large-scale works (the Ballade no.2 in B minor, Funérailles, Après une lecture du Dante) mix with pieces of more modest dimensions like Nuages gris; original pieces such as Nuages gris and Après une lecture du Dante sit side beside arrangements, some of which are in fact more in the nature of transcriptions, like Isoldes Liebestod and Ständchen."

Europa Galante
Fabio Biondi, violin & conductor

In the 1980s violinist Fabio Biondi emerged as a free-thinking and passionate adventurer, one of the first in Italy to board the time machine and re-explore this repertoire. To find a modern way of using the expressive instruments of the 18th century, he had to go back to the drawing board, with his Europa Galante orchestra, founded in 1989.

In 1991, this dazzling interpretation by Europa Galante, the ensemble's first recording, brought instant recognition, propelling the 'Red Priest' into the modern world. Fabio Biondi's ensemble - featuring harpsichordist Rinaldo Alessandrini, another pioneer of the baroque renaissance with his own Concerto Italiano - gives the impression of overflowing off the concert stage. Vivaldi not only enjoys a second coming, but returns rejuvenated. Diapason d'or, RTL d'or, 10/10 from Répertoire magazine, Gramophone Editor's Choice

"The recital is a moment of special intimacy that lays us singers bare through both our choices and our interpretation. Its often lengthy gestation refl ects our experience, our affi nities, our encounters. The strange distinction in French between 'voie' (path) and 'voix' (voice) is unsettling. Man seeks a path, a meaning for his life, and gives voice to his questionings. High voices generally symbolise that distant celestial sphere where birds and angels mingle. Their purity allows us, fl eetingly, to forget human imperfection and fragility. I try to understand the alternating feelings of fascination and rejection such voices awaken in me. No cloud of suffering must tarnish their brightness, and their perfection denies our fallibility. As a marvellous corollary of this, they snatch one from earthly gravity and sustain the crazy dream of fl ying, which at last seems possible. My aim today has been to reconcile these voices from heaven with those of our heart in a ballet emphasising the antagonisms that rack us. The radiance of the triumphant angel is echoed by Cleopatra's sufferings at death's door. Beauty yields to time, but time seems to stand still for an instant, thanks to music . . . Handel left us a considerable body of work in which it is a privilege to look for answers that do not exist."

Image 1600

"1600-talet är ett av musikhistoriens mest innovativa sekler. Då vägen stakades mot treklangen som den harmoniska rörelsens enda nav och mot da capo-arian som yttersta uttryck för jagets suveränitet. Hur denna resa låter inom instrumentalmusiken visar nu med musikantisk briljans cembalisten Rinaldo Alessandrini och en kvartett stråkar ur hans Concerto Italiano på albumet "1600". En repertoar som spänner från de livligt uppbrutna formerna hos venetianare som Tarquino Merula och Dario Castello till de gravitetiskt sammanhållna förloppen hos bolognesare som Giovanni Bononcini och Giuseppe Torelli. Och som lade grunden till mästare som JS Bach och Antonio Vivaldi."

Image Goldberg Variations & Concertos
Could it have been that Forkel and the early nineteenth century felt that the Goldberg Variations lay outside the usual demands of commissioned works and music for special occasions and that they were designed to play a dual and far more ambitious role, thus giving the work a unique position in Bach's output: at one and the same time, to complete the cycle of the four collections of the Clavier Übung (Keyboard Exercise) and to constitute the starting point of the great 'speculative' compositions, the Musical Offering, the Canonic Variations and The Art of Fugue? Midway between ars and scientia, as Alberto Basso remarks, between musica pratica and musica theoretica, Bach completed his systematic exploration of writing for the keyboard and began his musical 'testament' with these works which are entirely centred on the ideaof 'variation' taken in its widest sense, that is to say the complete exhaustion of all the possibilities of a theme - and where a preponderant place is given to polyphonic writing and, more particularly, to the canon.

Image String Quartets Nos. 6 ,7 ,11 & 14
As a young composer, it was some time before Beethoven turned his attention towards the string quartet. This is all the more surprising in view of the important place the genre was to occupy in his creative development. Through the power and originality of his corpus of sixteen quartets, he established himself as one of the masters, and very likely the greatest of all, in this very special genre in the history of music.

Image Stabat Mater
"The idea was to conceive a spiritual meditation (as intended by Haydn when he composed the first version for orchestra), articulated and sung in this case, yet without the voice becoming the leading actor in the drama: the vocal line and the text were considered as a continuation of the purely musical idea. This standpoint by no means excludes expressiveness, especially as the texted version enriches the string phrasing, and the content of the literary text itself is remarkable for the appropriateness of the moods it creates. Our work with the orchestra took account of this new musical situation: the playing style became more rounded to provide a closer match for the voices; the phrasing was twinned with that of the singers. The whole interpretative approach was focused on allowing the work to express to the full its profundity and sobriety."

"Sittande vid stereon svävar jag in i ett parallellt, hisnande vackert universum."

"Not to make it sound like a warm bath, but this really is one of those recital discs to immerse yourself in. There's a sense of luxury to the whole thing, in the splendour of Concerto Italiano's playing, in Rinaldo Alessandrini's long-view pacing, above all in two of the richest voices before the public today. Sandrine Piau and Sara Mingardo are a match made in Handelian heaven. The former's creamy soprano blends superbly with her dark yet receptive contralto colleague. At times they almost seem to mesh, as if into one instrument. And yet there is never any doubt that these are two highly individual and intelligent artists. Sample the alertness of the back-and-forth in the Orlando recitative, or the reflectiveness that follows in the duet. Or the way they complement each other temperamentally as well as vocally in the Ottone piece that closes the recital. In fact, jump in almost anywhere and you'll hear drama that pulses with life and just happens to be incredibly well sung to boot. This is the sort of project that could have, on the one hand, all too easily become a superficial showpiece for canary fanciers, or on the other, overwrought in its earnestness to make dramatic effects quickly. Alessandrini, no less than his soloists, will have none of either. All here sounds natural, truthful, genuine. Simply magnificent."

Image Medea’s Fury
Exciting musical baroque variations on a myth: Médée.

Opera remained an exclusively courtly and princely genre throughout the first third of the seventeenth century, when it found in mythological subject matter the source of the supernatural, one of the cornerstones of the Baroque aesthetic. The intention was to arouse in the spectator the astonishment that, proper to tragedy, which the Florentine theorists sought to revive in a wholly sung drama. Thus the myths of Orpheus, Arion, and Daphne nourished the first ‘favole per musica’, performed in Florence and Mantua to an audienc of aristocrats and academicians, before other characters with magical powers took over from them: Armida, Alcina, and Medea.

The last-named, granddaughter of the Sun, sorceress and sister to Circe, traverses the whole history of the opera –Cherubini, of course, but also such varied incarnations as those of Handel and Mercadante, right up to Pascal Dusapin.

From the XVIIth century to the mid-XVIIIth century, the Médée’s musical myth has been a great success on stage and this very-well structured program reveals after all a character very close to us.

Le Cercle de l'harmonie / Jérémie Rhorer

This recording of a live performance of music by the young Beethoven - his first operatic, symphonic and concert masterpieces - features one of the best of the newer ensembles on the international scene, Le Cercle de L'Harmonie under its conductor Jérémie Rhorer. The lively and innovative programme includes the early dramatic scene "Ah Perfido", the concert aria "No non turbati", "O wär' ich schon mit dir verein" (an aria from the first version of Fidelio, which was titled "Leonore"), as well as his First Symphony, and the first of the two Romances for violin and orchestra.

Formed in April 2005 in Deauville by Jeremy Rhorer and Julien Chauvin (first violin), le Cercle de l'Harmonie soon established itself as a significant force in the performance of great symphonic and operatic repertoires of the late eighteenth and early nineteenth century. The ensemble is now invited to appear at major venues - including London's Barbican Hall in June - and with artists such as Diana Damrau and Philippe Jaroussky, with whom it has recorded two CDs for Virgin Classics. This, the first in a series of productions for Ambroisie, presents Jérémie Rhorer's first recording of works by Beethoven.

Today the music of Beethoven is regarded as a remarkable link in the chain of evolution of Western music, a judgement that is based mainly on the pieces he composed after 1800.

However there was in his artistic development a transitional period, around the turn of the century, when the works he composed appear to belong to the Classical tradition while presenting ideas that were to be developed later. This recording features the major works of that period, the Symphony No. 1 in C major, and the Romance for violin and orchestra in F major, op. 50. There are also three vocal works on the disc, the aria "O wär' ich schon mit dir verein" from "Leonore", the first version of Beethoven's only opera "Fidelio", the dramatic scene "Ah Perfido", and the concert aria "No non turbati".

1. The Creatures of Prometheus, op. 43 (1801)

Nikolai Lugansky, piano

The great Russian virtuoso Nikolai Lugansky presents his recording to mark the 200th anniversary of the birth of Franz Liszt (1811-1886) - an album of popular piano pieces including La Campanella, Valse oubliée, his version of Isolde's Liebestod by Wagner, some of the Douze études d'exécution transcendante, and several gems from Années de pèlerinage, among them Vallée d'Obermann, Sposalizio, Les jeux d'eau de la Villa d'Este and Sonnet de Pétrarque 123.

An acclaimed recording artist, Nikolai Lugansky has recently signed an exclusive contract with the Naïve-Ambroisie label. The Moscow-born pianist put together this disc, his first devoted entirely to Liszt's music, with a seriousness, freedom and concern for overall unity worthy of the composer himself. His last release - an all-Chopin recital for Onyx - was described by The Guardian as "unquestionably thrilling", and his recording with violinist Repin of Sonatas by Franck, Grieg and Janácek (Deutsche Grammophon, October 2010) was hailed by Gramophone as "a quite magnificent performance". It also won the Prize for best Chamber Music recording at the BBC Music Magazine Awards 2011. Nikolai Lugansky won the Diapason d'Or for his recordings of the complete Chopin Études and Preludes, and the Rachmaninov Preludes and Moments musicaux, as well as an Echo Klassik Deutscher Musikpreis for his 2005 recording of Rachmaninov's Piano Concertos Nos 1 & 3.

Capable of great refinement and sensitivity in Mozart and Schumann, and breathtaking virtuosity in Rachmaninov and Prokofiev, Lugansky is a pianist of extraordinary depth and versatility. Recent and upcoming engagements include concerto projects with the Leipzig Gewandhaus and Andris Nelsons, Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra and Vasily Petrenko, Philharmonia Orchestra and Esa-Pekka Salonen, and Chicago Symphony Orchestra, Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich and NHK Symphony Orchestra all with Charles Dutoit; recitals at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw, Moscow State Conservatory, London's Wigmore Hall, Prague's Rudolfinum and the Wiener Konzerthaus; and chamber music collaborations with Vadim Repin and Leonidas Kavakos.

Nikolai Lugansky, piano

For his first Schubert recording, Nikolai Lugansky has chosen one sonata and four impromptus from the late output of the iconic Viennese composer.

Schubert composed his last three piano sonatas in Vienna during the summer of 1828, shortly before his death on 19 November at the age of 31. The first of the three, in C minor D958, is the most impassioned, and the power and dark energy emerging from its four movements are reminiscent of Beethoven. After the latter's death on 26 March 1827, Schubert felt liberated from the weight of idolatry and composed such masterpieces as these final sonatas, the Lieder cycle 'Winterreise', and the 'Impromptu's for piano, the last four of which are also featured on this recording. The elegance and technical prowess of Nikolai Lugansky's playing are perfectly suited to these masterpieces. He records exclusively for the Naïve-Ambroisie label.

Image The Seasons; Grand Sonata
Incredibly, despite several solo recordings dedicated to Russian composers, this new recording is award-winning artist Nikolai Lugansky’s first Tchaikovsky recital on record. Though less well-known than his operas or his orchestral compositions, Tchaikovsky’s piano music nonetheless contains essential works, such as the 'The Seasons' cycle and the 'Grand Sonata', featured here. Composed at a period of crisis in the composer‘s personal life, they illustrate two quite different aspects of his style: on the one hand we have the fashionable worldliness of 'The Seasons', pieces that almost belong to the genre of salon music; on the other, we see him ambitiously grappling with the classical sonata, in the tradition of his illustrious predecessors, Liszt, Schumann, Chopin.

For Nikolai Lugansky, whom Gramophone has called “‘the most trailblazing and meteoric performer of all”, this recording is like “having a new encounter with Tchaikovsky, almost like falling in love with someone new…ever since the Tchaikovsky Competition in 1994 I haven’t played any of the pieces that I performed back then – apart from the Concertos. Nearly all the solo works I played in the Competition, including the Grand Sonata, had dropped out of my repertoire – I don’t know why. With The Seasons, it’s the same thing: I’d studied four of the twelve Seasons – it’s very rewarding music to play. And what’s surprising is that these two works are both from his Opus 37; they were composed during the same period.”

Image Odisea negra
Odisea negra, el mar de las memorias is the second recording on naïve of La Chimera, an ensemble whose activities focus on the creation of original projects at the intersection of various art forms, with a special interest in the links between past and present.

Odisea negra is a tribute to the Caribbean world that, over the last centuries, and like the Mediterranean Sea several centuries before, has set an amazing identity while being a unique mix of cultures in which slavery, war and pain have been the main actors. Hence this is an exploration of various links between America, Africa and Europe. This is an album that can be launched and positioned as a world music project.

Argentinian musician and conductor Eduardo Egüez created this project with Venezuelian singer Iván García. The contribution of the renowed Senegalian singer Ablaye Cissoko is probably the main achievement of this project that, as Eduardo Egüez wrote in the inside notes "explores the 'imaginative world' of black Central America from its origins to the present, traversing many musical styles characteristic of that imaginative world, from the polyphonic negrillas of the sixteenth century to the Cuban habanera, son, and bolero; from the Baroque jácara to the Venezuelan merengue and joropo."

Gérard Lesne, countertenor
Il Seminario Musicale

With voluptuous pleasure, sensuality, tender human expression, Bach shows his passion for the human voice. Gérard Lesne, one of the first to reveal the beauties of the countertenor voice, continues to delight us with his performances.

Magic, humanity, barbarity and a rich array of feelings are the common ingredients of the Greek myths, which have constantly been illustrated by music in all its forms. While being close to us, these myths also take us into another world.

"Really desirable... an enjoyable programme."

Image Transfigured Night (The)
Arditti String Quartet
Thomas Kakuska, Viola
Valentin Erben, Cello

The Arditti String Quartet recorded Schoenberg's Transfigured Night in 1993; theirs has, to this day, remained the reference version.

For 40 years, their unswerving faith in 19th and 20th century music and their intelligent choices of championed repertories have nourished their work as begetters, missionaries and major players in musical creativity. Their strong identity, stamped on the quartet by founder Irvine Arditti, "a prophet among musicians", in the words of Harrison Birtwistle, and the last remaining member of the original 1974 lineup, stems from the Second Viennese School. Their immense discography has developed with a specific quality of string sound and a transparent technique capable of making the most demanding pages of chamber music accessible to a broad audience.

Laurence Equilbey

This two-piano version of Brahms' 'Requiem' was put to the test in 1871, in London, after the original version had been subjected to a flawed and chaotic premiere. In 2003, Laurence Equilbey's Accentus choir were joined by two legends of the keyboard, the late Brigitte Engerer and Boris Berezovsky, soprano Sandrine Piau and baritone Stéphane Degout.

Dispensing with flowers and wreaths they transform affliction into comfort, the forsaking of life into celestial attraction, testifying above all else to the superiority of Brahms' art.

Concerto Vocale de Leipzig
Ensemble Baroque de Limoges

Unusually these three church cantatas are accompanied by a cello, which was uncommon, especially in church: in this case the five-string piccolo, fashionable at the start of the 18th century. The key to the originality and coherence of this recording by the Ensemble Baroque de Limoges, with Concerto Vocale Leipzig, is to have approached these works from the instrumental angle.
