La Chambre Philharmonique, Emmanuel Krivine

Created on the initiative of Emmanuel Krivine, La Chambre Philharmonique likes to see itself as the achievement of a utopia. An orchestra of a new kind, comprising members of the finest European ensembles motivated by the same musical urgency, La Chambre Philharmonique places pleasure at the heart of a new adventure in music.

It is also a space for research and exchange, identifying the instruments and period techniques appropriate to each repertory.

In May 2014, La Chambre Philharmonique performed the Symphonie Fantastique of Berlioz in a memorable concert at the Cité de la Musique in Paris. It is this occasion that is now presented on DVD. The symphony is complemented by four fascinating bonus features: Emmanuel Krivine discusses with some of the musicians their work in common and the practice of period-instrument performance, three of the orchestra’s principals (violinist, bassoonist and timpanist) demonstrate the specific characteristics of their instruments, and the DVD offers the option of watching the entire symphony with commentary by Krivine.

At the moment when he is about to become Music Director of the Orchestre National de France, here is the rewarding testimony of an illustrious musician, highly respected by all those who work with him, who talks about music with simplicity, humour and sincerity.

Jordi Savall (rabec, rebab, viella & direcció)

Hespèrion XXI & La Capella Reial de Catalunya

Recorded live in Barcelona (Church Santa Maria del Pi) November 25th, 2013

Jordi Savall had every historical, geographical and emotional reason to pay a well deserved tribute to one of the most famous manuscripts of ancient music. The 'Llibre Vermell de Montserrat' is a collection of devotional texts containing late medieval songs and dances. The 14th-century manuscript was compiled in and is still located at the monastery of Montserrat outside Barcelona in Catalonia (Spain). The title describes the red binding in which the collection was placed in the 19th century. The songs were written in Catalan, in Occitan and in Latin for the pilgrims to have something appropriately «chaste and pious» to sing and dance. In this beautiful live recording made at the Santa Maria del Pi church in Barcelona, the colorful succession of songs and dances offers us a pleasant trip to the heart of the medieval music.

Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, Mariss Jansons

Recorded at the Philharmonie am Gasteig, Munich, 2016

As an artist in residence with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra, the American cellist Yo-Yo Ma had the opportunity to do what is perhaps the second thing he loves the most after playing: sharing his love of music with others.

During his residency, he transformed himself from sensitive teacher to inimitable Bach interpreter to first cello of a major symphony orchestra.

Yo-Yo Ma doesn’t fade away into the music, nor does he take a worshipful attitude towards the pieces he performs. From the moment he walks onto the stage, he exudes charisma that immediately confirms his exceptional status as the 'best cellist in the world'.

With its ten variations on a theme of knightly character for full orchestra, Richard Strauss’ tone poem 'Don Quixote' not only depicts the colorful adventures of Cervantes' chivalrous hero, but also functions as a virtuoso display of glorious solo melodies embedded in stunning orchestral passages. It is, in a way, a second Strauss cello concerto. Joining 'the Don' later is a viola solo that personifies the faithful Sancho Panza and is played by Wen Xiao Zheng.

To those in the know, Jansons’ partnership with the great Munich-based BRSO is one of the most transcendent conductor-orchestra pairings.

Hannes Minnaar (piano)

Hannes Minnaar is among the very best pianists of the new generation and this Fauré disc presents a selection of pieces where his “style characterized as sensitively romantic, musically inventive, with much tonal beauty and fluent precision” (HRAudio) can be fully displayed.

Thirteen nocturnes and as many barcarolles form the core of the collected output for the piano by Gabriel Fauré (1845-1924). Night-time meditations, then, along with inspiration drawn from rippling water (the origins of the barcarolle lie in the songs sung by Venetian gondoliers). Together with some impromptus, preludes and other works, one might rapidly gain the impression of a delightful collection of salon pieces, whose titles display the influence of Chopin. But this music is so very much more than pretty salon music. In the intimacy of these genres, Fauré succeeded time and again in nothing short of exposing his very soul. And the French composer’s style is entirely his own - original and personal - from first note to last.

This disc centres on the Theme and Variations, Op.73 and Nine Preludes, Op.103, surrounded by several nocturnes, barcarolles and other pieces. And the set includes also a bonus DVD of the same Fauré pieces in concert.

Along with violinist Isabelle van Keulen, Minaar has recorded a complete edition of Beethoven's Sonatas for piano and violin (CC72650) and he has already issued two volumes of Beethoven's Piano Concertos complete survey with Jan Willem de Vriend conducting The Netherlands Symphony Orchestra (CC72672, CC72712). In October 2016 Hannes Minnaar was awarded the most prestigious musical prize from the Dutch Government, De Nederlandse Muziekprijs.

“ I would never have expected to see a crowd at a downtown nightclub erupting with whoops after performances of four hypercomplex, cutting-edge string quartets by Iannis Xenakis. But in this setting these dense and kinetic works came across to this open-minded audience as just more hip, wild, out-there contemporary music." The New York Times, Sunday, December 21, 2008

Piano Concerto No. 3 in C minor, Op. 37


Margarita Höhenrieder (piano), Leon Fleisher (piano)

Kammerphilharmonie Amadé, Württembergisches Kammerorchester Heilbronn

Beethoven’s piano concertos impressively reflect the personality and creativity of the revolutionary composer. They are a challenge for each pianist.

In this recording of the 2nd and 3rd concertos, the legendary pianist, composer, and teacher Leon Fleischer and his star pupil Margarita Höhenrieder, who has also gained international recognition, show their personal relationship to Beethoven.

At two unusual concert locations – the Zollverein World Heritage Site in Germany’s Ruhr area and the famous Max-Littmann-Saal in Bad Kissingen, which is known for its acoustics – the two discerning artists perform the two concertos together with the Kammerphilharmonie Amadé and the Württemberg Chamber Orchestra Heilbronn.

Bonus film: Leon Fleisher and Margarita Höhenrieder in rehearsal and in conversation.

Mozart: Violin Concertos Nos. 3, 4 and 5

All Cadenzas written by Henning Kraggerud


Mozart:

Violin Concerto No. 3 in G major, K216

Violin Concerto No. 4 in D major, K218

Violin Concerto No. 5 in A major, K219 'Turkish'

Adagio for Violin and Orchestra in E, K261


Despite the limitations of life in his Salzburg birthplace – and the patronage of a new and somewhat unsympathetic Prince-Archbishop – opportunities nevertheless presented themselves to Mozart. Following a commission for Il re pastore in 1775, he wrote a sequence of violin concertos that reveal his own performer’s understanding of the instrument. The concertos are suffused with elegance, vivacity and wit. Mozart’s mastery of solo violin cantilena is matched by prodigious melodic invention and moments of exotic colour, such as the Turkish episode in the Rondeau finale of K. 219.

Arnalds: Island Songs

Arnalds: Island Songs


Ólafur Arnalds

Island Songs is the innovative brainchild of BAFTA award winning composer Ólafur Arnalds, alongside acclaimed film director Baldvin Z (BBC’s Trapped, Life in a Fish Bowl).

Ólafur will travel to 7 towns across Iceland where he will collaborate with 7 local artists, and at each location he will create, record and perform a new composition with the artist. He will deliver the audio and video the following day. Mercury Classics will release one audio track and one live performance video, each Monday.

Island Songs is a real-time interactive project that will evolve in the digital space, hosted via a bespoke website. Arnalds’ dedicated fanbase will be able to follow him on his travels via Facebook live-streams, Snapchats, Instagram, Twitter and Apple Connect.

Ólafur’s journey will also be chronicled by acclaimed film director Baldvin Z. The 7-week period will result in an hour-long music film, including conversations exploring music, history and identity, to create a powerful musical portrait of their native land. Marketing and promotional plans for phase two will be shared in the summer.

This is the most ambitious project that Ólafur has ever undertaken, creatively and logistically.
