Spoken folk text


Cora Burggraaf (mezzo-soprano), Simon Lepper (piano), Liza Ferschtman (violin) & Floris Mijnders (cello)

On this Hybrid SACD recording ‘Folk Stories’, young multi-award winning mezzo-soprano Cora Burggraaf is joined by the pianist Simon Lepper, cellist Floris Mijnders, and highly-regarded violinist Liza Ferschtman. The disc features folk songs and arrangements by composers ranging from Beethoven, Brahms, and Mahler to some of the most important figures of the 20th century, including Britten, Bartók, and Sibelius.

The Dutch mezzo-soprano Cora Burggraaf graduated with distinction from the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague in 2002. She pursued her vocal studies in London at the Royal College of Music and the National Opera Studio. She has been the recipient of many prizes including the 2009/2010 ECHO Rising Star Award, the 2006 Elizabeth Everts Prize, the second prize in the International Vocalist Competition Den Bosch 2004, the 2003 Maggie Teyte Prize and the Miriam Licette Scholarship. Her studies in London were funded by the Dutch Fonds voor de Podiumkunsten and the Prins Bernhard Cultuurfonds. In opera, Burggraaf has appeared at the Salzburg Festival, the Royal Opera House in London (for which she was named “Most Promising Newcomer of the Year” by The Observer), San Francisco Opera, Welsh National Opera, The Netherlands Opera, Garsington Opera, Opéra de Bordeaux and at the Aix-en-Provence Festival, BBC Proms and the Gergiev Festival.

“The essence of folk song is outward simplicity: this disc is a wide-ranging selection of arrangements and originals, performed with artful directness.” Sunday Times, 3rd February 2013

Gürzenich Orchestra Cologne, Girls and Boys of Choirs at the Cologne Cathedral Choir of the Bach Society, Cologne; Cologne Cathedral Choir, Kartäuserkantorei Cologne, Philharmonic Choir of Bonn Vocal Ensemble Cologne Cathedral, Markus Stenz

Continuing the critically acclaimed series of Mahler recordings with the Gurzenich-

Orchester Cologne conducted by Markus Stenz, the orchestra is joined on this recording by various soloists. The series so far has been chosen as Gramophone Editor’s Choices and has been well reviewed by all other outlets, remarkable in such a crowded market place.

“Stenz outdoes himself in finding a level of musical depth rarely plumbed in this piece. So too is he blessed with a roster of singers who view the music as more than merely a series of dramatic effects. Combing operatic firepower with the interpretative acumen of recitalists, the cast uniformly docuses not so much on hitting the dramatic points as floating the moments in between.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2013

“Stenz excels at knitting together the disparate elements – the Veni, creator spiritus really feels like a component part of Mahler’s grand design instead of a clumsy prologue. The Gürzenich-Orchester make a burnished, very European sound. The brass play with incredible force and power, but never sound strident.” The Arts Desk, 8th December 2012

Chen Reiss (soprano) & Charles Spencer (piano)

Chen Reiss’s debut album 'Liaisons' was internationally acclaimed for both the repertoire selection and the sheer brilliance of the musicianship displayed by Reiss.

Gramophone magazine called her performances of arias by Haydn, Mozart, Salieri and Cimarosa "standard-setting" and BBC Music magazine called it "top-drawer".

For her second ONYX CD Chen Reiss and pianist Charles Spencer have assembled a wonderful collection of songs on the subject of 'The Nightingale and the Rose' – songs that convey the magic of being in love, the heartbreak of love lost, the memories, the fun, the fantasies all associated with that strange, mysterious, dangerous and all-powerful condition –

love.

In repertoire that ranges from Purcell to Krenek, Hahn to Meyerbeer and Rimsky-Korsakov, and ends in Berkeley Square in London, this is a programme tailor-made for Chen Reiss’s remarkable voice and it will seduce you.

“Reiss fields a supple, vernal lyric-coloratura that soars without strain or hardness into the stratosphere. Discerningly partnered by Charles Spencer, she can spin a pure legato and always phrases musically, with rubato growing naturally from the curve of the line and the flux of the harmony...this is a more-than-promising recital from a soprano whose vocal ease and allure make her an artist to watch.” Gramophone Magazine, March 2013

“It is a measure of her gifts that Chen Reiss takes all these composers in her stride. That vocal stride is impressive: sustained lyric tone that is only rarely forced...Charles Spencer is as ever the perfect partner” BBC Music Magazine, April 2013 ****
