Sollazzo Ensemble

Sollazzo Ensemble makes its recording debut following its prizewinning performance at the highly respected biennial York Early Music International Young Artists Competition.

Comprising sopranos Perrine Devillers and Yukie Sato, tenor Vivien Simon, medieval fiddles Anna Danilevskaia and Sophia Danilevskaia, and harpist Vincent Kibildis this vibrant young ensemble offers a fresh perspective on mediaeval repertoire.

On Parle qui veut the performers embrace the exuberant style of flourishing melodies which was fashionable in the north of Italy in the fourteenth century.

In contrast, a different kind of expressivity is required for the sober and succinct aesthetic of the works with French provenance.

Sollazzo creates a pure, bright sound, enhanced by the songs’ incredibly open textures and the use of the rarely heard Pythagorean temperament.

All in all, this represents a remarkable debut.

Corinne Morris (cello)

Scottish Chamber Orchestra

Corinne Morris’s debut concerto recording is a landmark in a career shaped by extraordinary talent and remarkable determination.

This evocatively titled recording reflects Corinne’s inspirational journey through a career-halting injury and back out the other side.

An invitation to perform with the renowned Scottish Chamber Orchestra in summer 2016 revealed an instant rapport; Corinne’s recording partner was secured.

Chrysalis marks Corinne’s return to form, as she takes centre stage in concertos by Monn and Haydn plus Couperin’s Pièces en Concert.

Corinne returns to Monn’s original notes for her performance of the concerto made famous by Jacqueline Du Pré. In staying true to the composer’s intentions Corinne creates a purposeful and stylistic journey towards the Haydn Concerto.

Overcoming the technical challenges presented by the Haydn concerto is of particular significance for the indomitable cellist. The personalized cadenzas are a fitting representation of her inspirational return to her virtuosic best.

Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto No. 3 & Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini - Vinyl Edition

Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto No. 3 & Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini - Vinyl Edition


Rachmaninov:

Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, Op. 43

Piano Concerto No. 3 in D minor, Op. 30


This classic recording is being pressed to vinyl for the first time, ahead of dates with Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky Orchestra in the US, Canada, Japan, Korea, Germany and at the 2017 BBC Proms. Originally the label’s fourth release, it showcases the talents of acclaimed pianist Denis Matsuev in Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No 3 and 'Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini'.

Matsuev is renowned for his interpretations of music by Russian composers and has collaborated with the Serge Rachmaninov Foundation. He was chosen by the Foundation to perform and record unknown pieces of Rachmaninov on the composer’s own piano at the Rachmaninov house on the Villa Senar estate, Lucerne. Winner of the the 11th International Tchaikovsky Competition in 1998, Matsuev has established a reputation as one of Russia’s greatest and most dynamic pianists. He has appeared with many of the world’s leading orchestras and gave his first Carnegie Hall recital in 2007. He will return to this iconic venue in November 2017 for a performance of Prokofiev’s Piano Concerto No 2 with Valery Gergeiv and the Mariinsky Orchestra.

“Here, for once, is the level of artistry that the work needs...”

BBC Music Magazine*****

“Matsuev holds that most titanic of piano concertos in a passionate embrace, lavish with his rubato, devastatingly certain

in his articulation, sensitive to colour and balance.” The Sunday Times****

“What a pianist...Denis Matsuev is a phenomenon...”

Daniil Trifonov (piano)


Since winning first prize at both the International Tchaikovsky Competition and Rubenstein Competition in 2011 aged just 20, Daniil Trifonov has established himself as the world’s most exciting young pianist. In 2016, he was awarded Gramophone’s Artist of the Year and his career continues to go from strength to strength.

For his debut Mariinsky recording he presented a thrilling account of Tchaikovsky’s Piano Concerto No 1, along with a unique selection of recital repertoire, which received rapturous praise across the classical music press. In October, this celebrated album will be released on vinyl for the first time, ahead of major recital tours of the United States, Germany and the UK and Ireland. During these tours, Trifonov will also be joined by various orchestras, including Valery Gergiev and the Mariinsky, to perform his own Piano Concerto.

The vinyl version of the album will also include Trifonov’s performance of Mussorgsky’s "Gopak" from 'The Fair at Sorochyntsi', recorded at the original sessions and available physically for the first time.

Bach Unlimited: Lise de la Salle

Bach Unlimited: Lise de la Salle


Lise de la Salle (piano)

“Bach…where everything begins.”

Since the 18th century, a number of compos-ers have paid hommage to Jean-Sebastian Bach, often considered the musical touch-stone: the perfect balance between science, form, expression and emotion.

Preludes and Fugues; transcriptions; or the mu-sical motif made from the letters of his name: these hommages have come in many forms. In the captivating and fascinating programme by Lise de la Salle, we find works by Bach himself, Poulenc, Busoni, Roussel and Liszt. And then, like a fresh breath of air from the heart of our current century, interspersed be-tween the works of the masters we find four new pieces commissioned from the pianist Thomas Enhco. The result is an essential, modern recording, an unprecedented journey into the essence of music, in which Lise de la Salle exhibits all her pianistic talent, as well as a profound in-tellectual knowledge.

It’s a long-considered recording, subtle yet powerful, that marks the 15th anniversary of the rich collaboration between Naïve and Lise de la Salle.

As The Tender Twilight Covers

Matthew Schellhorn (piano)


Colin Riley's work draws on a range of elements including improvisation, new technologies, song-writing and large-scale classical form. His work is impossible to categorize, embodying a genuine integration of stylistic approaches. As an established, but ever-questioning fi gure within the contemporary music scene over the last 20 years he has cut an independent path through many layers of trends and styles. We are delighted to welcome Colin to the NMC catalogue with this album showcasing his chamber works, written between 2005 and 2015.

Many of the tracks on this album are energetic and playful, with more than a hint of jazz. In Lyric Pieces Riley is infl uenced by his emotional links to songs (and their lyrics) by post punk, prog and rock bands that he listened to when he was a teenager.

Beethoven: Violin Concerto & Two Romances

Beethoven: Violin Concerto & Two Romances


Beethoven:

Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 61

Romances Nos. 1 & 2 for violin and orchestra

Schubert:

Rondo for violin and strings in A major, D438


Beethoven’s Violin Concerto represents the supreme challenge for violinists. Far from being a virtuoso display piece, this is chamber music on a large scale, the last and greatest ‘classical’ violin concerto, giving the soloist no place to hide with a solo part that is often very exposed against sparse orchestral accompaniment. A lukewarm reception at the concerto’s premiere in 1806 led to it being forgotten until Joseph Joachim resurrected it in the 1850s and restored to its rightful position as one of the greatest and most popular concertos for the instrument. This is James Ehnes’ first recording of this concerto, and he is supported sensitively by the award winning RLPO and fellow violinist-turned-conductor, Andrew Manze. The combination of soloist, orchestra and conductor on this recording is a dream team.

Walton: Symphonies Nos. 1 & 2

Walton: Symphonies Nos. 1 & 2


Walton:

Symphony No. 1 in B flat minor

Symphony No. 2


Walton’s First Symphony burst onto the musical scene in 1935 and quickly became recognised as a masterpiece. The influence of Sibelius and Beethoven can clearly be heard, but it is Walton’s brilliant use of the orchestra and grasp of form that shines through: a remarkable achievement for a composer of 33 years. The Second symphony has never had an easy time, in both escaping the shadow of its older sibling, and in overcoming the hostility of the late 1950s and early '60s when avant-garde was de rigeur. Fortunately it is now clearly a masterpiece to rank alongside No.1. It is assured, mature and confident, subtle and refined, from a composer at the top of his game. High voltage performances from Kirill Karabits and the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra.

The Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra is Classic FM’s Orchestra in the South of England. It was formed in 1893 and throughout its illustrious history it has worked with some of the finest composers, conductors and musicians in the world including Elgar, Bartók, Sibelius, Holst, Stravinsky, Vaughan Williams and Sir Thomas Beecham.

Stravinsky: Rite of Spring

Stravinsky: Rite of Spring


Debussy:

Printemps, suite for piano 4 hands or orchestra, L. 61

Rachmaninov:

Spring, Op. 20

Stravinsky:

The Rite of Spring


Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra & Chorus, Vasily Petrenko

Three works inspired by Spring – Stravinsky’s iconic and revolutionary 1913 ballet The Rite of Spring depicts Russian pagan tribes celebrating the emergence of Spring with frenzied dances and ritual sacrifice. The music has a rhythmic complexity and violence that caused a riot to break out at its premier in Paris. Rachmaninov’s Spring Cantata tells the story of a husband who has struggled through the harsh Russian winter knowing his wife has been having an affair with a younger man. He swears he will kill them, but on seeing the wonder of spring all around him, relents and forgives them both. Debussy’s early ‘Printemps’ of 1885 was said to have been inspired by Botticelli’s ‘Primavera’. Debussy was staying at the Villa Medici in Rome when he wrote this colourful and joyous work.
