Friedemann Eichhorn (piano) & Rolfe-Deiter Arens (violin)

Friedemann Eichhorn is a German violinist with the unique gift of projecting into different musical idioms. While generally not known as a composer of chamber music, Liszt wrote music for violin and piano throughout his career. While several pieces are arrangements of songs or works originally composed for piano solo, many are original compositions and explore the same stylistic explorations that can be found in Liszt's more famous compositions - including the use of folk materials, harmonic and melodic experimentations and cyclical forms.

“…the second Elegie and the Romance oubliée… best suit violinist Friedemann Eichhorn, the slight graininess in his tone never oversweetening Liszt's potent austerity; his tuning, too, is impeccable.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2009

“Adroit advocacy for new music on Disc 1 coupled with performances of 19th-century works that are so elaborately inflected and hyper-glamorous as to leave the German orchestra in near disarray.” BBC Music Magazine, December 2009

Berlioz: Grande Messe des Morts, Op. 5 (Requiem)

Berlioz: Grande Messe des Morts, Op. 5 (Requiem)


“Norrington's approach is pensive, sober and funereal-but it's so well paced that the sense of inevitability underlines man's mortality, and the outbursts when they do come are more effective for their comparative restraint...a reminder that the first performance was in church, not on a concert hall stage.” Andrew McGregor, bbc.co.uk, 8th May 2006

“"Truly it was of frightening greatness," wrote Berlioz after the Requiem 's première. The massed timpani of the "Tuba mirum" produced an "indescribable shock". The chief priest wept uncontrollably, while one of the choral singers suffered a nervous breakdown. Thankfully, there seems to have been no such casualty among the singers in this "live" performance from Stuttgart. The rich, ample acoustics of the Beethovensaal give full value to Berlioz's vast spatial effects, most spectacularly the four brass bands that herald the timpani onslaught in the "Tuba mirum". Yet Norrington's concern for clarity of line and articulation, and the carefully judged balances, mean that we hear far more than usual of Berlioz's brilliant and bizarre orchestral detail. Norrington's dramatic urgency, allied to choral singing of thrilling body and bite, make the apocalyptic movements duly overwhelming. No less moving is the choir's luminous delicacy in the "Quid sum miser" and "Quaerens me" - music of Cistercian purity and austerity - while Toby Spence brings a calm, rapt beauty to the cruelly high solo in the "Sanctus". A magnificent achievement, to be set alongside Colin Davis's recordings of this awesome work.” The Telegraph

SWR Stuttgart, Roger Norrington

Sir Roger Norrington — arguably the most radical and influential pioneer of historically informed performance practice — was among the "first" to present the music of Schütz, Purcell, Handel, Mozart, Rossini, Beethoven, Brahms and Schumann on period instruments. Since the 2000 Season of the SWR Stuttgart, Sir Roger Norrington has begun a process of translating his period instrument experience to a modern symphony orchestra in the Romantic tradition. The result, has been what the maestro calls “Pure Tone” performance. Sir Roger writes of his “Pure Tone" approach to Mahler: “Although Mahler is a modern composer in so many ways, we try to play him as a 19thcentury composer instead of a 20th-century composer." Norrington’s interpretation succeeds in making Mahler's compositions the culmination of a Viennese tradition rather than a rebellion against it – telling his musicians to “Play it like Haydn!” This fabulous - and certain to be controversial - interpretation includes the lovely interlude for trumpet and strings (“Blumine”). Recorded following Sir Roger’s wildly successful tour of Japan with the SWR in 2004. The Tokyo audience not only gave this Norrington’s Mahler a ten-minute standing ovation but the concert was ranked as one of the Top Five Concert Events of the Year!

This is Mahler as he has not been heard since he originally wrote the work, and is an essential listening experience today!
