Ist es wahr?

with Marianne Crebassa (mezzo-soprano)


Quatuor Arod

The Arod Quartet, founded just four years ago in Paris, makes its debut on Erato with an album of Mendelssohn, tracing his life through his works for string quartet. The composer has been important for the ensemble, not least by helping it win two major competitions.

The members of the Arod have been mentored by both the Ebène and Artemis Quartet, and they collaborate here with a further Erato artist, the mezzo-soprano Marianne Crebassa, in a performance of the song ‘Ist es wahr?’

Limited Edition

The origins of the Adiemus concept dates back to 1994 when Welsh composer Karl Jenkins (and former member of the 1970’s jazz-rock group Nucleus and the progressive rock band Soft Machine), was approached to produce the music for the Delta Airlines Synchronised Flying TV commercial campaign. Karl had already achieved success in commercial music having produced the music for the 1993 De Beers A Diamond is Forever campaign, which memorably featured Palladio. The Delta Airlines creative brief was to produce an unique, contemporary and uplifting sound with reference to ethnic and ‘new age’ musical styles, which as well as being on-trend during the 1990’s, also reflected the global nature of the airline. Karl produced a thirty-second track especially for the commercial, which became an instant hit with the TV audiences worldwide.

Considerable public demand for an audio release of the Delta Airlines music prompted Karl to expand the thirty-second ad into a full four-minute track (entitled Adiemus). It was released in 1995 as a CD single and even spawned a 12” vinyl single of club remixes (cover artwork featuring Dolphin imagery from the TV commercial). Karl had produced eight more tracks which came together to form the best-selling album, Adiemus: Songs of Sanctuary. Over the following years, the Adiemus concept grew from strength-to-strength with the release of four further volumes, live, and best-of albums, achieving worldwide sales of c.1.5 million albums.

Now, more than two decades on from original release, Songs of Sanctuary is finally available as an LP, pressed on high quality 140g blue vinyl. The ’glassy’ 1995 audio master was originally created for (and perfectly suited) the CD format. Expert mastering engineers at renowned AIR Studios (London) painstakingly prepared the audio for vinyl transfer by means of analogue processing to add warmth and presence to the sound and a deliver a more satisfying listening experience.

The Sixteen, Eamonn Dougan

The fifth volume in this highly acclaimed series, conducted by The Sixteen’s Associate Conductor, Eamonn Dougan, celebrates the music of Polish composer Marcin Mielczewski. Together with Bartłomiej Pękiel, Mielczewski was amongst the most notable of 17th-century Polish composers and was recognised as a leader among his contemporaries. Influenced by the many Italian composers who graced the Polish courts in the 1600s, Mielczewski was a prolific composer. The cross-section of works recorded here shows an exceptionally accomplished musician at work, one whose music deserves a wider audience and who can confidently stand alongside the maestri who came before him and from whom he learnt his craft.

Kabalevsky: String Quartets Nos. 1 & 2

Kabalevsky: String Quartets Nos. 1 & 2


Kabalevsky:

String Quartet No. 1

String Quartet No. 2


Stenhammar Quartet

Dmitri Kabalevsky only composed two string quartets. His first quartet of 1928 from his late study years with Nikolai Yakovievich Myaskovsky is a work structured with great refinement not only fulfilling academic requirements but also representing a remarkably independent achievement. His second quartet from the period immediately after World War II very dramatically reflects the events of the preceding years. Here, Kabalevsky produced a work of extraordinary eloquence with a clear per aspera ad astra arising from the horrors of the war.

Suppe: Il Ritorno del Marinaio

Rijeka Opera Symphony Orchestra, Adriano Martinolli D'Arcy

Yes, there is such a thing: an opera, not an operetta, by Franz von Suppé, through-composed and Italian in its dramatic character which is hardly surprising from a man who was Donizettis distant nephew! Des Matrosen Heimkehr was a commissioned work for the Hamburg Opera. This recording represents a successful pioneering effort that once again showcases a forgotten work from a neglected genre the opera oeuvre of Franz von Suppé.

Glass, L:

Symphony No. 5 in C Op. 57 'Sinfonia Swastica'

Fantasy, Op. 47

Marianna Shirinyan (piano)


Staatsorchester Rheinische Philharmonie, Daniel Raiskin

The theosophical worldview, to which Louis Glass increasingly felt drawn, found expression in only a very few of his compositions. Of all the works influenced by theosophy, the fifth symphony from 1919-20 is the one based on the most extensive overall idea. His Fantasia for Piano and Orchestra above all adheres to the works introspective motto alluding to theosophy: From the spirits eternal canopy, tones calling man sound down. And man turns away from the world and remains alone in order to find peace
