CPE Bach: Works for Violin and Pianoforte

CPE Bach: Works for Violin and Pianoforte

Recorded in the Kammermusik Studio des SWR, Stuttgart, Germany, 9-11 January 2006


Bach, C P E:

Sonate en ut mineur H514, Wq78

Sonate en si bémol H513, Wq77

Arioso con variazioni, Wq. 79 (H535)

Sonate en si mineur H512, Wq 76


Albrecht Breuninger (violin), Piet Kuijken (piano)

The sonatas of 1763 presented here show not only the composer's ability to express personal feelings, but are direct precursors of the great creations of Mozart and Beethoven in the field of instrumental sonatas with obligato piano accompaniment. These passionate works anticipate developments that would appear later in the Romantic era. That alone should be enough to want to listen to them. Period instrument experts Piet Kuijken and Albrecht Breuninger bring this music to life with spontanety and a dash of improvisation - just right for these Sturm und Drang works of original genius.

Schubert - Piano Works Volume 11

Schubert - Piano Works Volume 11


Schubert:

Piano Sonata No. 19 in C minor, D958

Adagio in D flat, D505

Hungarian Melody in B minor D817

Galop and 8 Ecossaises D735

10 Variations in F major for piano, D156 (1815)


Gerhard Oppitz has played all the sonatas of the Viennese master Schubert in the course of his explorations, but he also has taken up many of Schubert's smaller pieces for the piano, which are less frequently played in concert and are still largely unknown. Here, the composer creates a special intimacy with the listener in these sometimes almost improvised works that provide fascinating insights into Schubert's creative process.

This CD continues Oppitz's Schubertian dialogue through the juxtaposition of the composer's great late period Sonata D 958 with many smaller pieces, such as the 10 variations of 1815, written when Schubert was just 18 years of age.

Bach, C P E: Hamburg Symphonies (6) for Strings, Wq. 182 (H567-662)


In honor of CPE Bach's 300th birthday, hänssler CLASSIC will be releasing an exciting series of recordings dedicated to the music of this well known but hitherto neglected Bach son during the first 3 months of 2014. At the beginning there are the so-called “Hamburg” symphonies Wq 182, interpreted with great sensitivity and bite, when necessary, by the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra under the renowned conductor and former violist of the Berlin Philharmonic, Wolfram Christ. Maestro Christ sees these works as expressive pieces, open to multiple interpretations that invite the listener to experience them as almost Romantic in their gesture and content. Deciding on a fortepiano continuo instrument is not only a historically informed decision, but contributes to a perfectly balanced overall sound.

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

Haydn:

Symphony No. 90 in C major

Symphony No. 92 in G major 'Oxford'


Read Presto's complete review of this disc here.

“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

Schumann: Requiem, Der Königssohn & Nachtlied

Schumann: Requiem, Der Königssohn & Nachtlied


Schumann:

Requiem in D flat major, Op. 148

Nachtlied for chorus & orchestra, Op. 108

Der Königssohn, Op. 116


Ingeborg Danz, Christoph Pregardien, Sibylla Rubens, Yorck Felix Speer & Adolph Seidel

KammerChor Saarbrucken & Deutsche Radio Philharmonie, Georg Grun

These are stunning recordings of three rarely performed Schumann masterworks. The Requiem is beautifully scored and inhabits a world between Fauré’s otherworldly peace and Berlioz’s thunderous Last Judgement.

“this version of Nachtlied will leave no-one in doubt that this choral-orchestral miniature is a significant find. Der Königssohn is similarly enjoyable” BBC Music Magazine, August 2011 ****

“The soloists lend distinction, especially Christoph Prégardien as the young king-to-be, and Georg Grün's flexible direction doesn't undermine the pulse that each movement needs if it's to sustain any impression of coherence.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2011

“Whatever the aesthetic ambiguities of the work, Georg Grün and his musicians give the Requiem a creditable, straightforward performance. Balances tend to favour orchestral detail over a more precise choral presence...The soloists acquit themselves well.” International Record Review, September 2011

“Der Königssohn is one of four ballads that Schumann composed in 1851, which are precursors of a whole genre of narrative concert pieces in the second half of the 19th century. It may not be top-drawer Schumann, but it offers a sense of the composer creating something new.” The Guardian, 26th May 2011 **
