Bononcini: Stabat Mater

Bononcini: Stabat Mater


Bononcini, A M:

Stabat Mater

Dio e la Vergine


Alessandro Stradella Consort, Estévan Velardi

This CD contains the Stabat Mater by Antonio Maria Bononcini (1677‐1726), one of the earliest and most famous works in this genre, on a par with the Stabat Mater by Pergolesi.

In this work, in the tragic key of C minor, Bononcini reaches a noble purity of expression of the deep human feelings of the lamenting Mother. The polyphony is strong but never overwhelming, the melodic lines have a powerful simplicity and serenity, breathing a devotional piety and sincerity throughout the whole work.

Also presented on this CD is the Sacred Cantata Dio e la Vergine, for two soloists and ensemble.

Estévan Velardi is an Italian conductor and musicologist, specialised in the research, publication and (first) performance of musical scores from the Italian Baroque, notably the works of Stradella and Alessandro Scarlatti.

The booklet contains liner notes and sung texts.

Guitar Vibes

by Brouwer, Pujol, Sierra & Maier


Izhar Elias (guitar) & Florian Magnus Maier (electric guitar)

Netherlands Chamber Orchestra & Matangi Quartet

For this exciting new recording Dutch guitarist Izhar Elias selected 4 works for guitar and strings to show the versatility of his instrument. In these works by Brouwer, Pujol , Sierra and Maier influences can be traced from classical music, Avant‐Garde, Caribbean music, Spanish folklore, Flamenco, Arabic music, tango, blues and even trip‐hop and heavy metal: fascinating!

Izhar Elias secured the collaboration of world‐class musicians (composer Florian Magnus Maier plays the Moog electric guitar), each bringing a different musical background and an open mind.

In the booklet text each composer comments on his own work, a better introduction is hardly possible.

Merkel: Organ Music

Merkel: Organ Music


Merkel:

Sonata No. 2 in G Minor, Op. 42

Choralvorspiel 'Schmücke dich, o liebe Seele'

Sonate No. 6 in E minor, Op. 137

Choralvorspiel 'Nun sich der Tag'


Carlo Guandalino (organ of the Cathedral of Thiene, Vicenza, Italy)

Gustav Adolf Merkel (1827‐1885) was a German Romantic composer, mainly for his own instrument, the organ. He completed his studies in Dresden, where he staid till his death as organist and teacher. He also had lessons with Robert Schumann in Leipzig.

Merkel’s style is strongly influenced by Baroque counterpoint, notably by Johann Sebastian Bach, which he incorporated in the romantic idiom of his time, with its warm harmonies and long melodic lines.

On this new recording we hear two of his Organ Sonatas, large‐scale 4‐movement works, of which the number 6, “Choral‐Sonata” is the most famous.

Italian organist Carlo Guandalino plays the magnificent organ of the Cathedral of Thiene (Vicenza, Italy), restored by the famous organ builder Zanin, the specifications of which are included in the booklet.

Guandalino’s affinity with the German Romantic repertoire was already apparent in his recording of organ music by Rheinberger (BC95466).

Farrenc: Wind Sextet And Trios

Farrenc: Wind Sextet And Trios


Farrenc:

Sextet, Op. 40 in C minor for Piano, Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Horn & Bassoon

Trio for clarinet, cello & piano in E flat major, Op. 44

Piano Trio in E minor, Op. 45


Linda di Carlo (piano)

OperaEnsemble

Louise Farrenc was born in 1804 into an artistic family of painters and sculptors, living in a “commune” near the Sorbonne in her native Paris. At an early age she was admitted to the Paris Conservatoire, where she studied composition and piano, and where she met her future husband, the flautist Aristide Farrenc.

Farrenc’ s early compositions were in cultivated Salon style, her later works however are of a more ambitious nature, she composed large scale chamber music and even symphonies.

The clarinet and flute trios and the wind sextet on this new recording are written in the Classical/Early Romantic style of Weber, Hummel and Clementi, music of fresh imagination, charm and scintillating instrumental virtuosity.

Played with brio and zest by I Solisti del Teatro Dell’Opera di Roma, an elite group led by pianist Linda di Carlo, who already successfully recorded an earlier Farrenc CD (BC94815).

Caldara: Missa Dolorosa

Caldara: Missa Dolorosa


Caldara:

Missa Dolorosa (1735)

Crucifixus a 16 voci

Motetti for 2 voices & for 3 voices

Ciaccona (Largo) in si bemolle maggiore per due violini e basso continuo

Ravenscroft, J:

Suonata da chiesa in B minor


Ensemble La Silva, Nanneke Schaap

Antonio Caldara (1670‐1736) was an Italian Baroque composer. Born in Venice he was a chorister in the famous San Marco, where Legrenzi was his teacher. He soon spread his wings across Europe and held several important posts in Mantua, the Spanish court in Barcelona, Rome and eventually the post of Kapellmeister at the Imperial Court in Vienna.

Caldara left a substantial oeuvre, consisting of instrumental music in the tradition of Corelli, sacred music and operas.

This new recording presents several sacred choral works of great beauty and intensity. Caldara’s innate feeling for drama is reflected in the highly expressive vocal lines, as expected from a composer famous for his operas and oratorios.

Ensemble La Silva was established in 1984 by Nanneke Schaap, it consists of Dutch and Italian musicians well schooled in the Historically Informed Performance Practice.

The booklet contains scholarly written liner notes by a musicologist, as well as the sung texts and their English translation.

Myaskovsky: Cello Sonatas

Myaskovsky: Cello Sonatas


Miaskovsky:

Cello Sonata No. 1 in D major, Op. 12

Cello Sonata No. 2 in A minor, Op. 81


Luca Magariello (cello) & Cecilia Novarino (piano)

Nikolay Myaskovsky (1881‐1950) was educated (after a failed schooling for Military Engineer, prompted by his father) at the famous St Petersburg Conservatoire under the tutelage of Rimsky‐Korsakov, Lyadov and Glazunov. His musical style has absorbed the nationalistic Russian tradition of these masters, but Myaskovsky widened his horizon by his acquaintance with Richard Strauss and his compatriots Prokofiev and Stravinsky, the former becoming one of his closest friends.

The two Cello Sonatas, presented on this new recording, fully exploit the expressive potential of the instruments, creating a warm, passionate atmosphere in which the flowing melodic lines of the cello are supported by the rich harmonies of the piano.

Italian cellist Luca Magariello won First Prize in the prestigious Khatchaturian Cello Competition, which started his international career.

Reger & Beethoven: Serenades For Flute, Violin And Viola

Reger & Beethoven: Serenades For Flute, Violin And Viola


Beethoven:

Serenade in D major for Flute, Violin and Viola, Op. 25

Reger:

Serenade in D, Op. 77a

Serenade in G major, Op. 141a


Andrea Oliva (flute) Carlo Parazzoli (violin) & Luca Sanzò (viola)

This new recording brings together 3 Serenades for the unusual combination of flute, violin and viola by Ludwig van Beethoven and Max Reger.

The Serenade Op. 25 by Beethoven is a youthful work full of good humour, charm and wit, in the same spirit as his popular Septet. Reger’s Serenades are not exactly brimming with jollity, they are mature works in which the composer’s craftsmanship is embedded in a deeply poetic and even dramatic content.

In the booklet the three Italian musicians are giving their own personal views on the music in the form of an interview with renowned musicologist Valentina Lo Surdo: highly original, interesting and revealing!
