Image Piano Concertos
Niklas Sivelöv, piano

Malmö Symphony Orchestra • Victor Aviat
Track 1-3: Concerto Classico for piano and orchestra
Track 4-7: Concerto No. 2 for piano and strings

Livgardets Dragonmusikkår • David Björkman
Track 8-10: Concerto No. 5 "Riddarkonserten" for piano and brass band

Niklas Sivelöv is never “just” composer or “just” pianist. His aim is the same in both fields – just as it is the same in music, and in conversation as well. We must experience the vault of the sky with the right sound and hopefully come together to experience the timeless feeling of spirit.

I höst släpper Amanda sitt andra album I det lilla händer det mesta. Såhär säger hon själv om albumet, som hon också beskriver som en direkt uppföljare till det första:

- Vardagen är en evig källa för inspiration och jag gillar att gräva i dess märkliga mönster. Det är i det lilla som det mesta händer, oftast utan att en ser det. Det är också just de saker jag kan längta efter som mest. När det blir för stort finner jag sällan orden.

?Amanda Ginsburgs karriär har det senaste året gått spikrakt uppåt. Efter att hon 2018 kom med sitt kritikerrosade debutalbum Jag har funderat på en sak fortsatte framgångarna med Olle Adolphson-stipendium, Stim-stipendier och Sveriges kompositörers/ textförfattares Jazzpris med
motiveringen: "Det finns ett eko av våra legendariska jazzsångerskor i hennes musik. Hon har förmågan att skapa nya och synnerligen charmiga låtar som låter sig inspireras av sin historia, men som talar med en helt egen röst." Den 7 februari 2019 mottog Amanda en Grammis för årets jazzalbum!

Amanda Ginsburg is a rising star in Swedish music, with a Swedish Grammy in the category Best jazz album 2018. She sings like an angel, with the tantalizing combination of innocence and wisdom that the word implies.

On September 11 she will release her second album I det lilla händer det mesta (essence of the title in English
would be: Every journey begins with a single step). During the spring Amanda released two singles and she and her quartet has performed live on the Swedish channel 4 morning show and in July they performed for a second time in one of Swedens most loved tv programs, the sing-a-long show called Allsång på Skansen. Now they are more than ready to start their release tour.

Since Amanda Ginsburg’s debut album was released in 2018 she has received several scholarships and prices. From SKAP (Swedish composers and lyricists) she recieved a jazz price with the motivation: There is an echo of our legendary jazz singers in her music. She has the ability to create particularly charming songs which are inspired by her heritage but speaks with a completely unique voice.

In February 2019 Amanda received a Swedish Grammy for Best Jazz
This is what Amanda says about the new recording: I see this second album as a continuation of my first. Here are the everyday and sometimes a bit banal stories
that make up such a large part of my life and often also yours. In the little everyday life I find endless
inspiration. When I start too big, I actually get nothing done.

Image Theodore Kuchar: Dvorák, Shostakovich, Smetana, Ni
The complete Brilliant Classics recordings of a masterful modern maestro with a touch of genius in little-known repertoire. In the extensive booklet interview, the conductor Theodore Kuchar recalls how, as a boy growing up outside Cleveland to Ukrainian-born parents, he learnt his music at the feet of Lorin Maazel, sitting in the cheap seats every week. Sound training and determination took him to Helsinki as violist and part-time conductor for the Finnish Opera, thence to Brisbane for his first musical directorship in charge of the Queensland Philharmonic. But it was in 1992 that Kuchar discovered his roots and began to establish an international reputation when he took over the National Symphony Orchestra of the Ukraine. Together they have given lengthy tours worldwide, hundreds of concerts and made many recordings for several labels. The theatre music by Shostakovich was particularly successful and holds a treasured place in Kuchar’s heart: ‘The Bolt is absolute genius. I’ve done it with every orchestra I’ve had a long relationship with, and every time it knocks an audience sideways.’ In the early 2000s Kuchar also worked regularly with the Janácek Philharmonic Orchestra based in Ostrava, formerly known as the Czech Radio Orchestra. Together they recorded the major – and most of the minor – orchestral works by Smetana, the best-known tone-poems of Dvorák and even the complete symphonies of Carl Nielsen, which became a critical hit. Since then Kuchar has conducted orchestras throughout Europe, Asia and the Americas. As music director of the Orquesta Sinfónica Venezuela he led a vibrantly colourful collection of Latin-American orchestral classics (by Ginastera, Moncayo and Revueltas among others) for the last disc on this retrospective, recorded in 2011. ‘Theodore Kuchar is one of today's most dynamic, most successful young conductors… every instrumental effect comes through beautifully… Tempos are generally rapid and spirits high… this is a lot of fine Dvorák for a very low price.’ (Fanfare) ‘This is a recording of very high worth by a conductor of genius. Each and every minute of every piece on this three-CD [Smetana] set is emotionally committed, tautly controlled, propulsive, and stunning. I haven’t heard a Má vlast or Bartered Bride Overture this good on records in eons.’ (Fanfare) ‘These performances [of Latin-American classics] are very slick. The tightness of ensemble in Moncayo’s Huapango shows up the sloppiness of most other versions. Kuchar sets and maintains a perfect tempo here and elsewhere. The recording quality is sharp-edged and bright, adding to the excitement. (Fanfare) ‘Theodore Kuchar leads what is without question the most exciting complete Nielsen symphony cycle available, making this the set to get for Nielsen newcomers.’ (Classics Today) This set brings together the recordings conductor Theodore Kuchar made for Brilliant Classics: the complete symphonies by Carl Nielsen, the Symphonic Poems by Dvorák, the orchestral works by Smetana, ballet suites by Shostakovich and a recording of Latin American classics. All these recording have met with enthusiastic critical acclaim: “10/10: first recommendation in this repertoire..terrific sonics..irresistable package..”(Classicstoday on Shostakovich), “Theodore Kuchar is an extremely exciting and talented conductor..thrilling, with uninhibited abandon”(Classicstoday on Dvorák), “Theodore Kuchar leads what is without question the most exciting complete Nielsen symphony cycle available, 9/9”(Classicstoday on Nielsen), “with plenty of enthusiasm and vigor..hard to of the best versions available..”(Classicstoday on Smetana). The Latin-American program was nominated for a Latin Grammy. Theodore Kuchar (1963) was born in New York. He studied the viola and conducting, and was for a period principal violist of the Cleveland Orchestra. He is one of the most sought-after conductors of his time, active with the Symphony Orchestra of the Ukraine, Janacek SO, Venezuelan SO and others.

Image Symphony No. 1
Maestro Herbert Blomstedt and the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig present the first fruit of their integral Brahms symphonies project with a recording of the composer’s First Symphony in C Minor, alongside his Tragic Overture. Once celebrated as “Beethoven’s Tenth”, Brahms’ first attempt at the symphonic genre was generally greeted as the most promising answer to Beethoven’s legendary legacy, and solidified his musical reputation. For Blomstedt, bringing these Brahms pieces into the world in the strange year of 2020 has a special significance, as Robert Schumann, Brahms’ close friend and mentor, once pointed out that it is the musician’s mission “to bring light into the depths of the human soul”. The euphoric finale of Brahms’ First Symphony, evidently inspired by Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy”, fully conveys this message of hope and Blomstedt’s unshakable belief in the imperishable power of the human spirit. Blomstedt’s work as a conductor is inseparably linked to his religious and human ethos, and his interpretations combine great faithfulness to the score and analytical precision with a soulfulness that awakens the music to pulsating life. In the more than sixty years of his career, he has acquired the unrestricted respect of the musical world. The Gewandhausorchester Leipzig is the oldest civic orchestra in the world with a glorious history, and is still counted among the world’s leading ensembles. Both make their PENTATONE debut.

Image String Trio; Piano Quintet
The Lockenhaus International Chamber Music Festival is regarded as one of Austria’s most prestigious festivals: it was created by the violinist Gidon Kremer to offer a new vision of chamber music and the opportunity to create musical exchanges in an intimate setting. The cellist Nicolas Altstaedt succeeded Gidon Kremer in 2012 and now continues the spirit of the festival. For this first recording in partnership with Lockenhaus, he is joined by experienced partners, including the Norwegian violinist Vilde Frang, the Hungarian violinist Barnabás Kelemen, the German pianist Alexander Lonquich – whose Schubert double album was recently released on Alpha (Alpha 433) – and the British violist Lawrence Power. Together they have selected two works, the Piano Quintet of Béla Bartók, a demanding composition, rarely performed even though it is considered an intensely personal work, and the String Trio of Sándor Veress, a former student of Bartók. Nicolas Altstaedt has joined Alpha for several recording projects that will illustrate the full range of his talents, in a highly eclectic range of music.

Image Peter Grimes (2 SACD)
‘The burly Aussie tenor is now even more identified with this ill-fated protagonist than Peter Pears, the first Grimes. And everywhere Skelton has sung the part, whether at English National Opera, the Proms, the Edinburgh festival or now on this international tour of a concert staging mounted by the Bergen Philharmonic, the conductor has been Edward Gardner. Theirs is one of the great musical partnerships, and they continue to find compelling new depths in this tragic masterpiece.’ – Richard Morrison – The Times. This studio recording was made following the acclaimed production at Grieghallen, in Bergen, in 2019 (repeated in Oslo and London and reviewed above). Luxuriant playing from the Bergen Philharmonic and a stellar cast under the assured direction of Edward Gardner make this a recording to treasure.

Image Il Tamerlano - Vivaldi Edition Vol. 65 (3CD)
Thanks to this tenth recording by Accademia Bizantina in the central core of the Vivaldi Edition, Il Tamerlano can now take its justly earned place in the Vivaldi catalogue, helping to renew the name and reputation of Timur, the Tartar emperor whose memory was later overshadowed by the Ottoman sultan. Vivaldi's opera was first performed during the Venice Carnival of 1735, and resurrected in 2005 under the title Bajazet. Here, under the musical direction of Ottavio Dantone, we have a sextet of dramatically engaged virtuoso soloists, and an orchestra that is perfectly aware of Vivaldi's musical dialectic. All the soloists are superbly well equipped to deal with the Red Priest's acrobatic and inventive writing – here seen in the context of several of his contemporaries. To meet the wishes of the Accademia Filarmonica that gave him the commission, Vivaldi chose to set a libretto by Agostino Piovene, who was famed throughout Italy, and the composer decided on the form of the pasticcio, enabling him to profile his principal singers by bringing in arias from his own works, also from operas by other composers such as Giacomelli, Farinelli's brother Broschi, and Hasse. Bernardo Ticci's edition used in this recording also inserts five further insertion arias that were definitely sung at the 1735 performance, but are absent from the score. In spite of the composite nature of the work, Il Tamerlano is an accomplished musical drama presenting a wide palette of emotions and colours inspired by elements of love and war. Particularly moving is Irene's famous aria of despair 'Sposa son disprezzata' from Act II of Giacomelli's opera, sung here by Sophie Rennert, also Timur's impassioned 'Dov’è la figlia?', and 'Barbaro traditor', Bajazet's Act III aria by Broschi, sung here by Filippo Mineccia in the role of Bajazet.
