String Quartet No. 1 in D major, Op. 11


Puertas Quartet

This CD was made possible by the belief and generosity of our supporters in both the UK and New Zealand and we hope you get as much enjoyment from listening to it as we did recording it.

Our first CD for Atoll featuring the music of New Zealand composer Keith Statham, spent six weeks at No.1 in the Radio New Zealand Classical Chart.

For this, our second disc, we have chosen to record repertoire that formed the backbone of our two most recent tours, Ravel’s impressionist masterpiece and Tchaikovsky’s first quartet with the famous Andante cantabile second movement. For the final piece on the disc we owe thanks to our former NZSO colleague, Allan Chisholm, for introducing us to it. This beautiful Romance is the slow movement from the first incomplete string quartet by Rachmaninov, written when he was just 16 years of age.

This romantic programme juxtaposes the best piano solo pieces of Rachmaninov, selected by Richter himself, and charms with his old-fashionioned and romantic Russian approach, with elegance, energy and virtuosity, an irresistible balance between secret humour, power and native melancholy. Before him, only Vladimir Sofronitzky risked such modernity, now....

Anna Prohaska (soprano), Eric Schneider (piano)

For her third solo album, Anna Prohaska tackles the worlds of peace and war in music - "Behind the Lines" draws a connection to World War I in this, the centenary year.

Joined by noted pianist Eric Schneider, she has programmed songs ranging from Beethoven, by way of Schubert, Schumann and Liszt, and turn-of-the-century composers Fauré, Mahler and Wolf, to the early-modern works of Weill and Eisler

For all German speakers, check out this feature of our cooperation partner Bayerischer Rundfunk, who documented the recording with Anna: http://www.br.de/radio/br-klassik/sendungen/allegro/anna-prohaska-aufnahmen-br-100.html

Read Presto's complete review of this disc here.

“This is a superbly conceived and wonderfully performed collection about war and its emotional impact...The imagination and care that has gone into this compilation is exceptional, and the results are totally compelling.” The Observer, 6th July 2014 *****

“Prohaska has a rich palette of expressive colours to draw on and she sings with effortless confidence through several languages and moods, sensitively partnered by her responsive pianist Schneider. This is a very rewarding disc, both moving and stirring.” The Telegraph, 22nd July 2014 ****

“it’s instantly apparent that you’re in the presence of a singer of blazing commitment and authority...In short, this is a mesmerising, powerful and frequently very moving disc, full of terrible beauty and of course especially pertinent this summer. I can see myself returning to it again and again for many years to come.” Katherine Cooper, Presto Classical, 28th July 2014

“Prohaska's performances fully embody the hugely varying needs of each songs, so much that one barely notices how she colours her voice...She simply allows you to feel the song with the clean, crisp delivery that has made her an important early-music singer.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2014

“It’s hard to imagine a more fitting musical tribute to the millions of lives lost in conflict: this is brilliantly conceived programming performed with incredible artistry, giving equal weight to the song texts as well as their music...The cumulative effect is engrossing, atmospheric and moving.” Opera Now ****

James Rhodes (piano)

With childhood abuse, drug addiction and suicide attempts behind him, James is not your typical concert pianist but with his passion and rock-star aura, he is bringing new audiences to classical piano. In 'Piano Man', James plays the music of his favourite composers, including Bach, Beethoven and Chopin, many of whom had, like James, troubled lives. In this highly personal collection, James explains how they’ve given him solace in his darkest moments and why we should all be listening. With stunning solo piano performances and witty insight into these lives 'Piano Man' is an exciting and radical new approach.

“a sincere, communicative and mindful musician. He always holds your attention, whether or not you agree with each interpretative notion...Rhodes's fusion of instinct, mindfulness and individuality stand out in any era.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2014
