EMI Classics is pleased to release the latest instalment of highlights from the Martha Argerich Project at the Lugano Festival. This is the ninth annual 3-CD set celebrating the musical fruits of a project in which young artists join seasoned performers, including Martha Argerich herself, to explore wide-ranging chamber music and orchestral repertoire, both well known and rarely heard.

The CDs, recorded in the summer of 2011, are being released in anticipation of the Festival’s 2012 season in June. As a chamber music event which celebrated its 10th anniversary in 2011, this series has become a laboratory that gives guest artists a chance to prove themselves not only in well-known masterpieces but also in rarely performed repertoire.

This is the second instalment released in slim-line clamshell packaging, which better represents the prestige of this release and makes it of suitable size for newspaper/magazine promotions.

As in previous years, the piano stands at the centre of the programming,

This 3CD set welcomes back mainly familiar names from the previous Live from the Lugano Festival releases including pianists Lilya Zilberstein, Sergio Tiempo and Polina Leschenko as well as Virgin Classics’ inimitable violin- and cello-soloist brothers, Renaud and Gautier Capuçon and violinists Lucia Hall and Lida Chen.

Few artists have nurtured and promoted emerging young musicians with the level of personal commitment shown by Martha Argerich. In the process, she has created inspired and inspirational chamber music partnerships mixing established and up-and-coming artists. A legend in her own lifetime for her technical mastery and passionate artistry, Argerich possesses an infectious spirit that has fired her own performances and partnerships as well as those of her colleagues and protégés.

“a sense of the musicians’ infectious enjoyment, even when their musicality is of the most serious kind, emanates from this entire programme. Argerich’s presence and ever-youthful spirit conspire to inspire performances of untold pleasure.” The Telegraph, 17th May 2012

“This 2011 instalment is exceptionally interesting, with rarities including the big-boned, folksy piano quintet by the Polish composer Juliusz Zarębski...The highlight is an absolutely titanic account of Liszt's flamboyant Concerto pathétique with Lilya Zilberstein: breathtaking.” The Observer, 3rd June 2012

“The Liszt Concerto pathetique...is the best thing on these discs, responding well to the typically wild, dramatic Martha Argerich treatment. Elsewhere in these recitals...she communicates to both audience and her fellow artists an abundance of energy that is, sadly, not always well directed.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2012 ***

“These may or may not be likely to become library choices for this repertoire but to invite comparisons is hardly the point: what is palpable in these Lugano CD grab-bags is the festival atmosphere and the intensity of chamber music-making at such a high level.” Gramophone Magazine, October 2012

An innovative debut recording from EMI’s new signing, Tine Thing Helseth, in which Tine takes on the mantle of story teller through her interpretation and repertoire curation.

This collection of songs transcribed for trumpet includes music by Strauss, Sibelius, Ravel, Canteloube and Weill, and is anchored by Grieg’s Haugtussa song-cycle. The recording is with orchestra and piano accompaniment.

Tine is 23 with a refreshingly focused and straightforward approach to making music. She is a unique artist with several facets - classical soloist, ensemble leader and jazz musician – and equally at home with each.

Tine Thing Helseth, born in 1987, started to play trumpet at the age of 7, and is already one of the leading trumpet soloists of her generation. Already in her solo career, Helseth has appeared with the Vienna Symphony Orchestra, Vienna Chamber Orchestra, the Zurich Chamber Orchestra, Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra, Ulster Orchestra, Philharmonie Baden-Baden, all the major Norwegian orchestras and further afield with the Shanghai Symphony Orchestra, amongst others.

“Tine Thing Helseth is blessed with a combination of great wind-playing attributes: a soulful - dare one say brooding, Nordic - approach to phrasing, quite astonishingly outstanding intonation and a sound which is open and honest, even and focused in all registers...Helseth can do the ultimate in good trumpet-playing: smith a tune with seeming effortlessness.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2012

Rachmaninov: Symphonic Dances

Rachmaninov: Symphonic Dances


Rachmaninov:

Symphonic Dances, Op. 45

Stravinsky:

Symphony in 3 movements


Following his acclaimed LSO Live recording of Rachmaninov’s Symphony No 2, a Gramophone Editor’s Choice, Valery Gergiev conducts a thrilling performance of the composer’s 'Symphonic Dances', coupled with fellow emigré Stravinsky's Symphony in Three Movements.

An orchestral suite in three sections, the 'Symphonic Dances' were the last works Rachmaninov completed and proved to be some of his most popular. Although rarely sentimental, they draw on folk idioms and the composer’s reminiscences of Russia, from where he emigrated in 1917.

Stravinsky’s 'Symphony in Three Movements' was written between 1942-45 and was the first work Stravinsky completed after his arrival in the USA. Although he claimed it was a ‘War Symphony’, his true inspiration was typically vague.

Following an extensive tour of the Far East with the LSO in February and March, Valery Gergiev conducts concerts throughout Europe in with the Mariinsky Orchestra, including performances in the UK.

“Gergiev’s reading is a satisfying one and the LSO are on superlative form… Punchy, powerful stuff, in close-up, vivid sound.” The Arts Desk, 5th May 2012

“[Gergiev] elicits a fair amount of instrumental detail from Rachmaninov's luminous scoring [in the Symphonic Dances] but it is at the cost of cohesive overall structure...[the Symphony in Three Movements] is a big-boned performance, its syncopations crisply articulated by the LSO, its powerful rhythmic impetus kept on a tight rein, its palette of timbres well delineated.” Gramophone Magazine, June 2012

“these are thoughtful, well-considered performances, excellently played and recorded...Gergiev's rather deliberate tempo in the first movement of the Rachmaninov seems to stress the 'symphonic', rather than the 'dance' aspect of this work...Much the same might be said of the Stravinsky: overall the emotional temperature seems a bit low, despite some highly exciting passages and refined solo playing in the more lyrical moments.” BBC Music Magazine, July 2012 ***

“Gergiev gives us a bold, exciting account of Stravinsky's wartime cracker: wild and rough at the edges in the outer movements; unsentimental, even brusque in the 'soft centre'.” Classical Music, 7th April 2012 ****

Piano Concerto No. 2 in C minor, Op. 18


Sa Chen has been called “a brilliant pianist” by Emmanuel Ax. Here she performs what are probably two of the best known of all piano concertos. Her previous release on PentaTone (PTC5186355) included Rachmaninov’s Études-Tableaux; “The tone is unremittingly beautiful, she displays a wide palette of pianistic colour...” International Record Review.

“She projects the rolling passagework and multi-layered textures of the Rachmaninov's first movement with plenty of power and sweep...Chen's well-modulated, regulation pianism does justice to the Grieg Concerto's solo part but she offers little that her recorded competitors have not done better.” Gramophone Magazine, June 2012
