Piano Sonata in G major, Op. 53 No. 1, P. XII:46


Kemp English (piano)

Composed between 1807 and 1809, the four sonatas in this volume of Leopold Kozeluch’s complete cycle represent his return to the genre after a period of fourteen years. Whilst aware of the influence of the resonant new English piano, the Bohemian composer explored the special effects of the Viennese instrument. The Turkish sounds in the finale of Sonata No. 41 illustrate the timbres available whilst the romantic quality of his slow introductions, not least the Largo of Sonata No. 40, reveal his command of color and texture. Kemp English is one of New Zealand’s leading concert performers. Renowned as an exuberant entertainer, he is much in demand as a solo organist, collaborative pianist and specialist fortepiano exponent, relishing the opportunity to work in a diverse array of styles and periods.

Shining Night: A Portrait of Composer Morten Lauridsen

Shining Night: A Portrait of Composer Morten Lauridsen


A film by Michael Stillwater Co-produced by Doris Laesser Stillwater

With commentaries by Robert Geary, Paul Mealor, Dana Gioia, Paul Salamunovich, Alex Shapiro, Ola Gjeilo, various

Featuring performances & soundtracks by Volti, Con Anima Chamber Choir, S.F. Choral Society, Aberdeen Choral Society, The Dale Warland Singers, Polyphony & Britten Sinfonia, The Singers/Minnesota Choral Artists .

Morten Lauridsen reaches into his listeners to brighten what is most ancient, sacred, and beautiful in the human soul, and reveals that it lives within each of us. What we hear in his music is the echo of our own longing– for wonder, for love – embraced and gently, reverently set down in a place of peace. This film does a powerful thing in opening up Lauridsen himself, so that the irresistible connection to and affection for his work becomes even more profoundly personal.” (Tamsin Smith, Social Entrepreneur & Writer)

This film celebrates the life and music of the artist whom musicologist Nick Strimple describes as ‘the only American composer in history who can be called a mystic’. Exploring the relationship of art, nature and spirituality, “Shining Night” reveals the composer through the lens of his love for silence and solitude together with his passion for music and literature, with commentaries from composers, conductors, singers and friends.

Geme la tortorella (from La finta giardiniera)

arr. for cello by Steven Isserlis


Read our exclusive interview with Steven Isserlis about the recording here.

If the two Haydn concertos are the most accomplished contributions to the cello’s burgeoning repertoire written in the eighteenth century, the CPE Bach coupling is scarcely less fine. Two charmingly rococo encores complete this latest essential release from Steven Isserlis.

“This recording is a real tonic. I defy anyone not to smile at Steven Isserlis’s effervescent readings of Haydn’s graceful and urbane cello concertos...He spins an exquisitely light and agile line, maintaining a delightfully sunny disposition, even in each concerto’s adagio...The Bremen players add just the right degree of elegance and poise to make this a CD to treasure.” The Observer, 10th September 2017 *****

“His partnership with the brilliant Bremen orchestra is a musical marriage made in heaven.” Sunday Times, 10th September 2017

“These interpretations sing of an artist still thoroughly in tune with his prevoius thoughts, but who is keen to develop those ideas further. He's supported every step of the way in this pursuit by the warmly responsive Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen...Isserlis's 1998 recording [of the Haydn] remains classy stuff, but this has superbly trumped it.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2017

Violin Sonata No. 25 in F major, K377

Violin Sonata No. 30 in C major, K403

arr. Maximilian Stadler


This is a series which continues to redefine the standards by which these works should be performed. As before, the music spans most of Mozart’s life, from 1763—when he was just seven years old—to 1782, and (another) unfinished present written for his new wife Constanze.

“Performers and engineers alike have made sure that the one instrument doesn’t swamp or outshine the other, and that neither is unduly spotlit. It all sounds and feels utterly natural...The whole enterprise is near-impossible to fault. Six sonatas left now to complete the cycle, a set that will surely become the modern reference recording.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2017

“If I sometimes wanted Ibragimova to play out more, that’s because I like her playing so much... it’s striking how the childhood pieces aren’t put out of countenance by the later ones. Aged seven, Mozart is already inventive, confident and playful.” Sunday Times, 24th September 2017
