Edicson Ruiz (double bass)

Orquesta Sinfónica Simón Bolívar, Christian Vasquez

Born in Caracas in 1985, Edicson Ruiz’ first taste of orchestral playing came with ‘El Sistema’, founded by José Antonio Abreu. Then, aged only 15, Edicson was awarded first prize at the International Society of Bassists´ competition in Indianapolis, making him the youngest winner of all time. Just two years later he was made a member of the Berlin Philharmonic´s double bass section, becoming not only the first Latin American musician to be so honoured but also the youngest ever in the history of the orchestra.

Edicson is also active as a soloist and has given recitals at the Berlin Philharmonie, Lucerne Festival, Edinburgh International Festival and the Chopin Festival in Warsaw.

Edicson Ruiz here turns his attention to the repertoire of the pre-Classical period, following in the footsteps of last great solo violonist Johann Hindle (1792-1862) by playing a four-stringed instrument with historical scordatura tuning.

Conductor Christian Vásquez is also a protégé of the internationally known Venezuelan ‘Sistema’ and is already established as one of the most promising talents from the Americas. Born in 1984 in Caracas, he studied under the tutelage of Maestro Abreu, who has been a great proponent of his career. His debut as a conductor with the Simón Bolívar Youth Orchestra took place in April 2008 in Caracas conducting Mahler’s Second Symphony.

Péter Szabó (cello & conductor)

Sinfonietta Pannonica

Vanhal was one of the greatest composers of the Viennese Classicist period, and two of his famous contemporaries, Haydn and Mozart are known to have regarded him highly.

The three cello concerti on this recording date from1785–1787. Péter Szabó, the soloist and conductor of this CD, came across the manuscript parts in the Musical Collection of the National Museum in Prague. Their elaborate style and varied themes elevates them to the rank of the most inspired Viennese Classical concerti.

Cappella Coloniensis, Hans-Martin Linde

This CD brings together repertoire that is not often performed. The Cappella Coloniensis made this recording in the 80s staying true to historical performance practice, defining the large symphonic sound by the seek, clear sound from original instruments.

At least in the case of Joseph Martin Kraus there has been a reappraisal: this Mozart contemporary is regarded today as a significant composer with his own, idiosyncratic musical language. Nevertheless the Cappella Coloniensis aimed to fill a gap with this disc, taking the listener on a journey to discover the symphonies that were composed and played during the time of Haydn and Mozart.

Toronto Chamber Orchestra, Kevin Mallon

The symphonies of Johann Baptist Vanhal are among the most important works of the classical period. Bold and imaginative, powerful and lyrical. Vanhal’s symphonies are only now beginning to win wider recognition as the masterpieces they are. This recording features his early and highly prophetic Symphony in E minor as well as one of his later works, the brilliantly-scored Symphony in C (Bryan C17) which Haydn is known to have admired.
