Eternamente is described as a collection of verismo – the term used generically for Italian opera of the immediate post-Verdi era. No matter when they were composed, and no matter what their subject matter, all these operas demand great passion and commitment from their performers – and they get it from Angela Gheorghiu. “It is like my soul, it is something different, it is not the voice,” she explained in an interview with Opera magazine. “The voice is also there, it has to be there, and it has had to be prepared – but at that moment of the performance, there is more. The response is never a conscious exaggeration – it is a natural expression. I am never pretending. It is just how I am at that moment.” The character and impact of her voice was summarised thus in Gramophone: “With her smooth and dark-toned soprano, a voice at once powerfully firm and vulnerable, Gheorghiu stands out from an entire generation of talented singers. Her sound is convincingly Italianate in the great tradition; her voice, once heard, is never forgotten.”

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...”

Tchaikovsky:

Piano Concerto No. 1 in B flat minor, Op. 23


Daniil Trifonov (piano)

Mariinsky Orchestra, Valery Gergiev

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.

Brahms: Violin Concerto - Vinyl Edition

Brahms: Violin Concerto - Vinyl Edition


Brahms:

Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 77


Heroic, dramatic, reflective and joyous, Brahms’s Violin Concerto, written for the great Joseph Joachim, a close friend of the composer, is one of the monuments of the Romantic repertoire. In a performance of epic sweep, Itzhak Perlman and Carlo Maria Giulini do full justice to its ambitions. This record has been regarded at the time it was released as “one of the greatest Brahms recordings of all time” (Guide Diapason). 40 years after its original release, it remains an absolute must-have, and a reference recording of the Brahms Concerto.

It also benefits from the 24-BIT/96kHz remastering done at Abbey Road in 2015.

HAYDN Cello Concerto No. 1 in C, Hob. VIIb:1: III. Allegro molto with Daniel Barenboim


“She clearly was born to play the cello,” wrote the New York Times of Jacqueline Du Pré in 1967. Just five years later her career was cut tragically short by illness. This LP provides a treasurable memento of the “perfect balance of youth and maturity” that Du Pré’s teacher, William Pleeth, found in her playing: “She approached each new experience with spontaneous pleasure and enthusiasm.” Offering a vivid experience of her art in the concerto, not least her legendary Elgar, the album comprises recordings remastered in 24-BIT / 96kHz at London’s famous Abbey Road Studios.

Chopin Evocations - Vinyl Edition

Chopin Evocations - Vinyl Edition


Star pianist & composer Daniil Trifonov burst onto the international music scene at the International Chopin Competition in 2010. He then went on to win the Grand Prize at the 2011 Tchaikovsky Competition performing Chopin's 1st Piano Concerto in the final round. Daniil Trifonov stands for virtuosity, musical poetry and evocative power. He is the world’s top young pianist today - and the music of Chopin is close to his heart.

The album features world premiere recordings of both Piano Concertos in fascinating orchestrations by pianist-composer Mikhail Pletnev. Pletnev also conducts the Mahler Chamber Orchestra in performances of exceptional detail, lyrical freedom and chamber music-like transparency.

The solo works include some of Chopin's earliest (Variations on "La ci darem la mano" Op. 2) and latest (Fantaisie-Impromptu Op. 66) works, together with the rarely-heard Rondo Op. 73a for two pianos, a devilishly difficult piece here performed by Trifonov together with his friend and mentor, Sergei Babayan.

The atmospheric tenth variation of Mompou's Variations on a Theme of Chopin is entitled "Evocation" and, in its poigant transformation of Chopin's famous melodies, inspired the name of this album.

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.
