Lieder nach alten Texten, Op. 33

Mass


Stuttgart Southwest Radio Vocal Ensemble, Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra, members, Marcus Creed

December 2013 will mark the 50th anniversary of Paul Hindemith's death, but this is not the only reason for the SWR Vokalensemble Stuttgart to turn Hindemith's choral works.

His works continue to impress with diverse expressions and moods that utilize a variety of different compositional techniques and musical forms.

In the works on this program, the SWR Vokalensemble Stuttgart realizes this idea quite beautifully. With this latest recording of the choral works of Hindemith, the elite Stuttgart team under the direction of Marcus Creed continues its award-winning series of recordings together with the choral works by Kurtág, Carter, Schnittke and Villa-Lobos.

“What draws these disparate strands so effectively together is the excellent singing of the SWR Vocal Ensemble under Marcus Creed...this release, performed with real polish and recorded in a suitably generous acoustic by Hänssler Classics, is a valuable addition to the catalogue.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2013

Les Ballets Russes Vol. 9


Milhaud:

Le Train Bleu

Sauguet:

Le Chatte

Tommasini:

Le donne di buon umore Suite

after Scarlatti


Another installment in the unique series of compositions for the famous Ballet Russes commissioned by Diaghalev. Featuring some unusual works, this disc includes Milhaud’s ‘Le train bleu’ (which celebrates the train from Paris – Deauville, a luxury modernization of its time!), and Tommasini’s homage to Scarlatti’s compositions (1878-1950). Henri Saguet’s ‘Le Chatte’ is one of the most important works of the late Diaghalev era.

“Volume Nine...is all delight...On this evidence there are plenty more small gems for Hänssler to bring to light.” BBC Music Magazine, July 2013 ****

“The discovery (for me, at least) is La chatte, by the forgotten Henri Sauget...Chic, economical, tuneful and unmistakeably Gallic, the suite's Overture and eight movements are a delightful souffle” Gramophone Magazine, July 2013

Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra , Stuttgart Southwest Radio Vocal Ensemble, Stuttgart Lehrergesangverein, Carl Schuricht

A very special boxed set documenting the artistry of one of the 20th century’s greatest conductors. Includes a special bonus disc including Schuricht in rehearsal.

“There’s no question that if you admire Schuricht then you will be intrigued to hear those performances that stand as an appendix to his Parisian cycle of the Beethoven symphonies...This may be a specialist box but it continues the fine archival work that Hänssler is carrying out on behalf of the conductor.” MusicWeb International, 1st July 2013

Bruckner: Symphony No. 9 in D Minor

Bruckner: Symphony No. 9 in D Minor


Norrington has released a series of acclaimed Bruckner performances on CD. His fresh approach injects a healthy dose of “worldliness” into these works.

“Where Norrington is fearless is in Bruckner’s on-the-spot shifts of tempo or key.” Gramophone

“As might be expected, Sir Roger employs instruments of the day, with a head-count that Bruckner might have expected and an appropriate seating plan. Bowing, phrasing and articulation are all in keeping with the manners of period and there's the usual Norrington embargo on vibrato...Excellent sound and, I suppose, good to have as food for thought, which is invariably what Norrington is all about.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2012

Telemann Cantatas: Easter, Ascension & Pentecost

Telemann Cantatas: Easter, Ascension & Pentecost


Telemann:

Ich weiß, daß mein Erlöser lebt, TWV 1:873

Gott fähret auf mit Jauchzen. TWV 1:642

Daran ist Erschienen die Liebe Gotte, TVWV 1:165


Stefanie Wust (soprano), Angela Froemer (contralto), Georg Poplutz (tenor) & Jens Hamann (bass)

Collegium vocale Siegen & Hannoversche Hofkapelle, Ulrich Stötzel

The musicians, soloists, choir and conductor featured here have all been involved with the music of Telemann for many years. They have several critically acclaimed recordings in the Hänssler catalogue. Here they perform three festive works. The music is easy-going and tuneful with moments of virtuosity and characteristic tone painting.

Telemann had the great misfortune of being born into an age of geniuses, sharing the spotlight with Bach, Handel, Scarlatti and Vivaldi. In any other generation, his originality, consistent high-quality and prolific output would place him among the greatest musicians of all times. Indeed even today, no complete published edition of Telemann's works exists. Throughout his long and productive life, Telemann drew upon every musical influence at his disposal - North German counterpoint, the easy lyricism of the Italians, the elegant dance forms of the French royal court and even the folk songs of the Gypsies and Slavic peoples. In this way, Telemann may be compared to Haydn - who similarly produced a steady stream of masterworks in every form, drawing upon the widest possible range of musical influences and transformed them into utterly original, and often visionary compositions.

To date, more than 1750 Telemann cantatas have been catalogued - with new discoveries still occurring almost every year! These works range from intimate compositions for a single voice and continuo, to massive works for double choir and large orchestras. The current release from Telemann scholar Ulrich Stötzel features the World Premiere recordings of three of Telemann's choral cantatas.

“This selection of Easter, Ascension and Whitsun cantatas by Telemann is vividly brought to life by Ulrich Stotzel and his well-drilled musicians.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2012 ***

“Fey has form for his previous heavy-handed telling of Haydn's jokes but, mirabile dictu, he plays this one pretty much straight...just about the best offering yet in this occasionally exasperating but always thought-provoking series.” Gramophone Magazine, May 2012

“Fey is rightly more interested in recreating the spirit, drama and character that Haydn would have wanted rather than strictly the sound world...it is clear that he combines that knowledge along with his sound musical instincts in everything he does...This is really exciting playing – bold and daring and invariably seems to somehow feel ‘right’.” Chris O'Reilly, Presto Classical, 19th March 2012

Den' li tsarit? (Does the day reign?), Op. 47 No. 6


Petronel Malan (piano)

This is the fourth CD in the “Transfigured” series featuring South African pianist Petronel Malan. She received a Grammy nomination for the first in the series, “Transfigured Bach” (HAEN98424). Here she takes us on a fascinating excursion through the songs of Tchaikovsky, transfigured by several of his distinguished compatriots.

“The Feinberg transcriptions of three songs from Op. 54 show Malan at her best, played with the greater fluency and innate poetic refinement familiar from her earlier discs. This one is fine but it misses the range of the others” Gramophone Magazine, July 2012
