Joseph Rassam (organ, harpsichord & virginal)

This new recording presents both organ works and harpsichord works of Heinrich Scheidemann (c. 1596‐1663).

Chorales sung in the vernacular, the pillar of Lutheran Service, are the primary source of inspiration for Scheidemann’s organ music. In combining the simplicity of the original melody and the complexity of contrapuntal technique the organist‐composer made the genre of chorale settings his own.

Joseph Rassam plays on an organ built by Bertrand Cattiaux who draw his inspiration from the Netherlands and North German instruments of the 17th century, as well as a historic two‐manual harpsichord, built in 1650/55 by “CLF”.

The booklet includes excellent liner notes written by a musicologist, in both English and German.

Scaramouche, suite for clarinet & piano (or orchestra), Op. 165d


Pierluigi Bernard (clarinet), Mauro Tortorelli (violin & viola) & Angela Meluso (piano)

Darius Milhaud is one of the most colourful and versatile composers of 20th century France. He was active in all fields and genres of composition: opera, choral, orchestral, chamber and solo works, a prolific writer and bold spirit, a member of the French composer’s group “Les Six”, a modernist influenced by jazz, polytonality and Brazilian culture.

This new recording presents chamber music for clarinet, violin, viola and piano, in different combinations. Most works are small scale, exquisite and delicious miniatures smelling of the rich perfumes of the French Provence, the region from which Milhaud came and which was his source of inspiration during his long creative life.

Excellent performances by violinist Mauro Tortorelli, pianist Angela Meluso and clarinetist Pierluigi Bernard. Tortorelli already recorded a successful Milhaud album for Brilliant Classics, the complete violin and viola sonatas (BC95232). Their recording of the Saint‐Saëns violin sonatas received 5 stars in the French Diapason.

This new recording presents Magnificat settings by Scheidemann, Schildt, Weckmann and Strungk, all active in Northern Germany and all pupils of the great Sweelinck, master of Baroque counterpoint.

The booklet offers extensive liner notes in English and Italian, and the full specifications and photos of the organ.

Franz Liszt was without doubt one of the greatest (if not The Greatest) pianists of all time, as well as an innovating and visionary composer, in one word…a Genius!

This set presents an extensive survey of Liszt’s piano works, grand scale or intimate, thundering or tender, passionate or devout. In these works we find all Liszt’s pianistic innovations, feats of jaw dropping virtuosity, unheard‐of sonorities and future‐looking asceticism.

All genres of his pianistic output are present: original works like the complete Hungarian Rhapsodies, the Complete Studies, Années de Pèlerinage, Ballades, Polonaises, Mephisto Waltzes and the immortal Sonata, Opera Paraphrases and Fantasies, Beethoven Symphony transcriptions and the Piano Concertos and Totentanz.

Performed by an extraordinary line up of present day pianists: Enrico Pace, Vincenzo Maltempo, Nelson Freire, and many more.

Zoryana Kushpler (mezzo-soprano)

Linos Ensemble

Together with a few close friends, Arnold Schoenberg (1874 – 1951) founded the Association for Private Musical Performances in November 1918. It offered a focused, forward-looking opportunity for this select Viennese musical circle to get to know the latest contemporary works by international composers. This was at a time when the cultural spirit of optimism and innovation in the immediate aftermath of the First World War was at a low point. Schoenberg enjoyed ties with many of the composers who performed at the Association concerts; some were close friends, as in the case of Zemlinsky. Working within the parameters of the instrumentation demanded in the scores, the Association became an incubator for the entire modern music movement, from Richard Strauss and Debussy to Webern.

This is the fourth release in a set of 10 CDs comprising the Dopplers’ complete music for flute(s), including various arrangements. Flautist Claudi Arimany spent decades researching this project, inspiring many famous musicians to become involved in its realisation.

Mahler: Das klagende Lied

Mahler: Das klagende Lied


Simone Schneider (soprano), Taja Ariane Baumgartner (mezzo-soprano), Torsten Kerl (tenor), Adrian Erod (baritone), Camilo Diaz Delegado (tenor), Juyoung Kim (bass)

ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra, Wiener Singakademie, Soloists of the Tölzer Knabenchor, Cornelius Meister

Mahler's cantata Das klagende Lied continues to be a rarity on concert programmes, despite the fact that the composer is recognised today as one of music history's most preeminent figures, many of whose works form part of the standard repertoire. The significance of this large-scale symphonic choral piece is that it represents the foundation of Mahler’s more widely-known compositions. As such, it is a key component in understanding Mahler and interpreting his works. It could be said that Das klagende Lied represents a summary of all Mahler's creative output up to that point in his life. It also foreshadows the works that were to come.
