Duo Enßle-Lamprecht

Duo Enßle-Lamprecht presents a mosaic of profane and sacred music of the medieval and with their virtuosic playing makes them an experience for today's audience. Exciting sounds and an astonishing richness of tone colours open up a different world. An Audax premiere!

Virtuoso, unconventional, and full of the joy of playing – this is how Anne-Suse Enßle (recorder) and Philipp Lamprecht (percussion) present themselves to their audience. With a seemingly inexhaustible instrumentarium made up of diverse flutes and percussion instruments, they forge a bridge between the end points of our listening habits, between the music of the Middle Ages and new and experimental music. This connection has numerous inspiring points of contact that spur on the ensemble’s creativity time and again, and leaves behind an enthusiastic audience.

In its interpretations of medieval music, the duo explores the distinctive features of the early flute and percussion instruments. AnneSuse Enßle and Philipp Lamprecht delve into the secular as well as the sacred music of the Middle Ages, employing instruments such as tabor, tamburello, nakers, Romanic bronze bells, medieval castanets, and various flutes. Since 2014 the duo has additionally occupied itself with a large-scale special project involving the complete works of the “Monk of Salzburg” (14th century), which will be performed over several years in the Salzburg area and enhanced by contemporary artists.

The special attraction of the duo, which was founded in 2008 in Salzburg, lies in its uncommon formation as well as in the resulting unusual concert programmes, which feature music from off the beaten track of the known repertoire. The musicians are continually commissioning new works and collaborating with composers and other artists.

The Saint Paul Chamber Orchestra, Quattro Mani, Windscape, Weiss Kaplan Stumpf Trio, Roberto Abbado

The four virtuosic performances on this CD represent a number of different phases in Lerdahl’s career, providing rich evidence of the expressive and formal flexibility afforded by the composer's “post-modernism”, though this term hardly does justice to Lerdahl's originality and communicative power.

Using what the composer calls “spiral” forms, Lerdahl's music is much admired for examining qualities of recurrence and reminiscence in the course of variations that blossom and expand upon themselves.

The Group for Contemporary Music, Charles Wuorinen


Charles Wuorinen has always been comfortable in a range of genres, embracing the traditional forms of opera, symphony, or string quartet as readily as he accepts the challenge unusual combinations that have become a second norm since Pierrot Lunaire more than a century ago. Nor has any particular focus dominated any period of his nearly sixty-year career: his eight symphonies span more than fifty years, his piano concertos forty. He has written everything from piano bagatelles to ballets, a Mass setting, eight symphonies, and three operas. This album features the latest and most traditionally structured of Wuorinen’s four piano sonatas—“sonata” being a term the composer has used on a number of occasions otherwise—as well as two vocal works setting poetry of two of our greatest modernist poets, John Ashbery and James Tate.

Wiener Staatsballett & Orchester der Wiener Staatsoper, Kevin Rhodes

Don Quixote was created by the master choreographer Marius Petipa, together with the composer Ludwig Minkus, for the Imperial Bolshoi Ballet in Moscow in 1869. Marking the 400th anniversary of Cervantess death, Don Quixote is here seen in the revised version by Rudolf Nureyev which the French choreographer Manuel Legris once a noted Basil himself in his days as an étoile in Nureyevs Paris troupe - devised for the Wiener Staatsballett. A Don Quixote to love Legris and company can count the evening a total success (Die Presse). As for the two principals, Maria Yakovleva and Denys Cherevychko as Kitri and Basil, no praise was high enough: both are technically brilliant (Wiener Zeitung).

Mozart: Lucio Silla, K135


Kresimir Spicer (Lucio Silla), Lenneke Ruiten (Giunia), Marianne Crebassa (Cecilio), Inga Kalna (Lucio Cinna), Giulia Semenzato (Celia)

Teatro alla Scala, Marc Minkowski, Marshall Pynkoski (dir.)

This dramatic opera is associated with one of Mozart’s sojourns in Milan. The Austrian genius was sixteen when he composed this jewel of bel canto dedicated to the general and dictator of Ancient Rome: Lucio Silla made its debut on 26 December 1772, when Mozart was almost seventeen. It was the third opera that he had staged in the Regio Ducal Theatre, Milano. The staging by Marshall Pynkoski, specialized in eighteenth-century operas with particular insights into Baroque dance, drama and gestures, pays ‘attention to detail, making use of scenes and eighteenth-century impeccably decorated costumes designed by a specialist of the genre in film, Antoine Fontaine’ (delteatro.it). ‘The female cast is remarkable’ (La Repubblica).

Schubert: Winterreise D911

Schubert: Winterreise D911


Bo Skovhus (baritone) & Stefan Vladar (piano)

20 years ago, at the beginning of his career, the young baritone Bo Skovhus made his first recording of Schubert’s “Schöne Müllerin”. Now, as a famous opera and Lied interpreter he presents a new production of all 3 Schubert Cycles: “I’m very thankful to do this again. As a young men you do not reflect so much what happen. Now, when I’m older, I understand much more about. Especially for this cycle it’s important to have another point of view.” (Bo Skovhus)

Stefan Vladar, the famous Viennese pianist and his partner on the piano, shows us the virtuosity of the piano part in a new different light.

Chianti-Lied - Ja ja der Chiantiwein


Daniel Behle is one of the most versatile German tenors, with successes in concerts, recitals and the opera alike: “The basic idea for this programme was originally a homage to the golden 1950s and 1960s and my favourite singer of that time, Fritz Wunderlich. Earlier, not everything used to be bad, and for this reason I find it legitimate to ‘re-animate’ the greatest ‘pearls’ once more and present them to a younger audience.”
