David Garrett’s new classical CD/DVD is the Beethoven Violin Concerto - a LEGACY to Beethoven (and Kreisler). This is an opportunity for fans of the 31-year-old German-born violinist, familiar with his rock-inspired concerts and CDs to discover his first love – classical music.

The DVD part is divided into two sections; first: Live In Baden-Baden, Filmed At Festspielhaus. Live in Baden-Baden shows Garrett performing with The National Philharmonic Of Russia, and being led at the baton by Vladimir Spivakov and Lorenzo Coladonato; a phenomenal performance. Second comes, Playing For My Life – a career defining documentary on the life and work of David Garrett following his meteoric rise to fame and the new recording of his Legacy album.

Legacy is a message from the man himself that he has never really been away. Throughout his rock-violin crossover years, playing pure classical violin has remained central to David Garrett’s life and work.

Live In Baden-Baden Live Concert

Playing For My Life Documentary

“Garrett's full-frontal account of the Beethoven is technically brilliant but misses lyricism.” BBC Music Magazine, June 2012 ***

“The Beethoven has some lovely episodes...The accompanying DVD has more interest than is usual with such promotional videos. There are fascinating interviews with Garrett's teachers, Ida Haendel and Itzhak Perlman, and a memorable account of the strains of being a teenage virtuoso, making clear the liberating effect of Garrett's move to crossover performance.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2012

Includes a brand new arrangement of the famous Inspector Morse theme tune by Barrington Pheloung in this 25th Anniversary year of Oxford’s most famous fictional detective.

“[the repertoire] shows off the warm, immediate New College, Oxford sound in which individuals are encouraged to sing out rather than, as some collegiate choirs prefer, blend in. Some tonal unevenness aside, the results are vivid and committed. One for choral lovers, not purists.” The Observer, 1st April 2012

Valse-scherzo in A major for piano, Op. 7


From nostalgic memories, the sound of bells, the winds of the steppes, to visions of a flickering future; Russian piano music, from Mussorgsky to Scriabin, finds its perilous equilibrium in a romantic past, beyond the immense, icy landscapes, with intimate confessions from heartbroken souls, with a virtuosity vying with the opera and the orchestra yet which retains the gentleness of a lullaby, of a child's laughter, of a disenchanted poem scribbled down one evening of drunken melancholy. From Tchaikovsky to Rachmaninov, by way of Rimsky-Korsakov, Borodin and Mussorgsky, it is a journey that takes us from St Petersburg to Moscow, across that vast country with its universal emotions. The piano is the instrument of kings, in the nineteenth century above all. Rachmaninoff, as we know from his recordings, was probably the greatest of them all: virtuosic and inspired, a visionary and a poet. Scriabin, before he injured his right hand (whence the Prelude for left hand op.9), also planned a solo career. Mussorgsky, too, was an excellent pianist. Only Rimsky-Korsakov, Borodin and Tchaikovsky were no more than competent amateurs on the piano, but that did not prompt them to give up composing for the instrument - far from it, in fact.

“although she brings out their poetry and reveals witty dexterity in Flight of the Bumblebee, Le Guay is no match for the great interpreters in certain cornerstones of the repertory.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2012 ***

“Personal and eloquent, warm and affectionate, nothing is heavily personalised or idiosyncratic. For the most part her manner is gentle and caressing, almost as if played before a small circle of intimate friends...In larger-scale Scriabin and Rachmaninov her unerring balance of sense and sensibility provides a fine alternative to, say, Horowitz's searing intensity” Gramophone Magazine, October 2012

Superb performance by all-Russian forces of the Russian State Symphony Capella, conducted by Valery Polyansky. Includes liner notes and texts.

Recorded 1951-1954

It is with some pride that Cornwall-based Magdalen is releasing several recordings of Saltash-born Dame Moura Lympany (others will surely follow in due course). Lympany had a clear affinity with Russian music and with Rachmaninov in particular: she was the first artist to record the Preludes complete (the recordings in this collection date from 1951) and her performances of Piano Concertos 1 – 3 under Malko and Collins, made between 1952 and 1954 and among the first to appear on LP, have always been treasured by critics and public alike. Space does not allow for all 24 Preludes but we have chosen eighteen of the finest to accompany the concertos. Quite simply, this is music-making to wallow in and to marvel at!
