A due alti

A due alti

Duos for countertenors


Filippo Mineccia and Raffaele Pe – two of the most compelling international countertenor voices currently around – unite to deliver a recital of Baroque vocal duets, in A due alti, a programme for Glossa which demonstrates that there was much music of quality being composed in this genre beyond that by Handel. Testament to that is the increasing interest on record in recent years of vocal music by the other composers represented on this recording – Steffani, Bononcini, Caresana and Marcello.

Such was the brisk demand in aristocratic circles for these intimate duets from the 1680s onwards (even princesses commissioned them!), especially up through Italy and across the German lands, that active opera composers such as the London rivals, Handel and Bononcini, were as attracted to them as were fervent detractors of opera such as Marcello. In them the Mediterranean sensuality of the vocal line was reconciled with the Northern European taste for counterpoint. With the voices of Pe and Mineccia blending attractively together or taking on distinct characters as demanded by the music, Claudio Cavina brings all his innate musical understanding and experience in shaping this beguiling music and bringing out its delicate subtleties from the cello, harp, theorbo and harpsichord which make up La Venexiana on this occasion. Stefano Russomanno delves into the history of the vocal duet and provides a fascinating commentary to the mellifluous music-making of the two countertenors.

Vaughan Williams: Symphony Nos. 4 & 6

Vaughan Williams: Symphony Nos. 4 & 6


Vaughan Williams:

Symphony No. 6 in E minor

Symphony No. 4 in F minor


Hallé announces their latest release, continuing their series of Vaughan Williams symphonies in live recordings from the Bridgewater Hall.

The Sixth Symphony caused a sensation at its premiere in 1948 and was performed 100 times in the following two years. It was composed during a period in which Vaughan Williams was writing film scores, the experience of which had the effect of sparking his imagination in the extravagant use of the orchestra. The work is claimed by many to have an external ‘war’ programme, a fact dismissed by the composer. Either way the result is undoubtedly one of Vaughan Williams’ finest works; a tightly woven musical statement, with stunning melodies and orchestration which is at turns dramatic and expressive. The Fourth Symphony was first performed in 1925 and, echoed the relative dissonance of recent works such as the oratorio Sancta Civitas, the Piano Concerto and the masque for Dancing Job. Structurally it gives a nod to Beethoven’s 5th Symphony and it includes material based on traditional forms as well as elements of self-portraiture, with music displaying the composer’s temper, humour and ribaldry.

harmonia nova #3

This ensemble takes its name from the Chapel of the Monastery of Santa Cruz de Coimbra in Portugal, from where the unpublished musical manuscripts on which the heart of the work is elaborated contribute to the sound research into the origins of Portuguese Baroque music.

This project aims to establish bridges between theoretical musicological research and the search for a sound that revives and justifies the value of these treasures from one of the main Portuguese cultural centres during the 16th and 17th centuries: The Monastery of Santa Cruz in Coimbra.

Quartet Gerhard

harmonia nova #4

‘Our quartet is a story of friendship. We know each other since our childhood and we always have shared the passion for playing music and learning.

That decided us one day, around six years ago, to make playing quartets the main endeavour of our lives - because our common ardour was strong and because the differences between our personalities make our music making more vivid.

Robert Gerhard was a Catalan composer - he was born in Valls, which is very near our birth place in Catalunya - and he was a pupil of Schoenberg at the beginning of the XXth century. Thanks to Gerhard, people like Webern, or Schoenberg himself, were visiting Barcelona very often. One can read in their correspondence how amazed they were about the city and the culture at that time, just before the civil war and fascism killed any progress in Spain.

That’s why we took the name of Gerhard, because he was a resolute man; he joined the avantgarde movement of that time and he fought for his idea of music in a way we identify with.’
