Sonata for Violin & Harpsichord No. 6 in G major, BWV1019a


Georg Nigl (baritone), Anna Lucia Richter (soprano), Petra Mullejans (violin), Roel Dieltiens (cello), Andreas Staier (harpsichord)

This recording is an invitation to immerse ourselves in the musical inner circle of the Bach family,

We know little about Bach’ family life, with the exception of the famous Clavierbüchlein (Little keyboard book) that the forty-year-old composer gave as a present in 1725 to his second wife Anna Magdalena.

This manuscript is a unique document of the music the family played together containing short keyboard pieces, songs, extended arias taken from the church cantatas and chamber music.

A talented family: Bach and his two eldest sons were also excellent violinists, son-in-law Bach, J. C. Altnickol played the cello & double bass; Anna Magdalena Bach and her oldest stepdaughter both sing and the young children of the second marriage play easy pieces on their father’s various keyboard instruments.

The musicians and singers on this recording, all eminent exponents of Bach and of Baroque music in general, have come together here to bring these exceptional moments back to life.

Dvorak: Piano Quartets Nos 1 & 2


Dvorak:

Piano Quartet No. 1 in D major, Op 23

Piano Quartet No. 2 in E flat, Op. 87


Miguel Da Silva (viola)

Busch Trio

Mathieu van Bellen and Ori Epstein are joined by one of their former teachers at the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel, the violist Miguel da Silva, a founder member of the famous Quatuor Ysaÿe.

The musicians, who share with us their passion for this repertory and their pleasure in playing together.

Part of a series of the Czech composer’s complete chamber music with piano.

The Piano Quartet no.1 in D major op.23 of 1875 was one of the first works in which the young Dvořák, inspired by Schubert, laid the foundations of the compositional style which he would conserve for the rest of his life. Fourteen years later, he composed the Piano Quartet no.2 in E flat major op.87, completed under pressure from his publisher.

This work, influenced by Brahms, is one of the masterpieces of his maturity.

Two further recordings will complete this quadriptych of the Czech composer’s keyboard trios, quartets and quintets.

Solistes de la Chapelle Musicale Reine Elisabeth

The fruitful partnership between the Alpha label, the Queen Elisabeth Music Chapel and the Palazzetto Bru Zane continues with this set of chamber music by Anton Reicha, performed by the musicians of the Chapel, young talents of an exceptionally high standard, ready and willing to take up the challenge of this music.

A key figure of the early nineteenth century, this Czech composer who became a naturalised French citizen did not leave his contemporaries indifferent. Both his music and his theoretical writings set zealous partisans against fierce detractors.

This 3CD set, assembling pieces from different genres and periods, gives an insight into the richness of the composer’s extremely prolific output of chamber music: it illustrates the diversity of the instrumental genres he tackled (sonatas, fugues, études and variations for piano; piano trio, string quartet, string quintet) and a compositional art characterised by perfect mastery – as one would expect from someone trained by Haydn in Vienna between 1802 and 1808 – and by the greatest originality.

Agitata infido flatu (from Juditha Triumphans)


Delphine Galou is renowned and admired for her musicality and her appealing timbre,

She has taken part in many productions of Baroque music and recordings of operas (notably by Vivaldi), but this is her first recital.

It is a programme of sacred music, motets, cantatas and excerpts from oratorios, which in the course of the 17th & 18th centuries were influenced by the increasingly fashionable genre of opera.

From the famous ‘Agitata infido flatu’ from Vivaldi’s oratorio Juditha triumphans, Stradella’s Lamentations and Porpora’s magnificent motet ‘In procella sine stella’, Delphine Galou covers a wide range of spiritual emotions.

Delphine is accompanied by the excellent Accademia Bizantina under its director and harpsichordist Ottavio Dantone.

A concerto by Gregori and a sinfonia by Caldara complete this release, which includes several world premiere recordings.

Mozart: Don Giovanni, K527

Mozart: Don Giovanni, K527


Jean-Sébastien Bou (Don Giovanni), Robert Gleadow (Leporello), Myrtò Papatanasiu (Donna Anna), Julie Boulianne (Donna Elvira), Julien Behr (Don Ottavio), Steven Humes (Commendatore), Anna Grevelius (Zerlina) & Marc Scoffoni (Masetto)

Le Cercle de l’Harmonie, Jérémie Rhorer

Third and last instalment in the ‘Live at the Théâtre des Champs-Élysées’ series of Mozart operas conducted by Jérémie Rhorer. After Die Entführung aus dem Serail and La Clemenza di Tito comes Don Giovanni, recorded in 2016.

Of the performances (directed by Stéphane Braunschweig), during which Radio France recorded the present discs, Le Figaro wrote: ‘Jérémie Rhorer expertly conducted his orchestra “Le Cercle de l’Harmonie”.

On the stage, Jean-Sébastien Bou sang and acted the title role impeccably. He was seconded by his valet Leporello, superbly played by the Canadian Robert Gleadow.

A thrilling production both musically and intellectually.

The cast is completed by the ardent Myrtò Papatanasiu in the role of Donna Anna, the lovely voice of Julie Boulianne as Donna Elvira and the elegant timbre of Julien Behr as Don Ottavio, not forgetting the magnificent Commendatore of Steven Humes and the lively Zerlina and Masetto of Anna Grevelius and Marc Scoffoni.

Grandissima Gravita

Grandissima Gravita

Music by Pisenel, Tartini, Verachini & Vivaldi


Pisendel:

Sonata for Violin and harpsichord in C

Tartini:

Sonata for Violin and continuo in A minor, Op. 2 No. 5

Veracini:

Sonata for violin and continuo in G minor, Op. 2 No. 5

Sonata accademica in D minor, Op. 2 No. 12

Vivaldi:

Violin Sonata, Op. 2 No. 2 in A major, RV 31


This CD brings together the compositions by four violinist-composers.

United by a reverence for Arcangelo Corelli (1653-1713), and in particular his Opus 5, these works explore the imagination of form that was the Sonata for violin and continuo.

Weaving together stylised dances and the preludic tradition, we are transported to a world of musical alchemy - the violinist creating ex nihilo textures and melodies that entrance and amaze.

Rachel Podger: “The four composers’ connections read like a popular comedy! Violin virtuosos Francesco Maria Verachini andJohann Georg Pisendel had an argument which resulted in Veracini flying into a rage and throwing himself from first floor a balcony, damaging his foot and limping forever after. Verachini amazed Giuseppe Tartini with his astonishingly smooth bowing technique, whereupon Tartini locked himself away to practice. Pisendel studied with Tartini and Antonio Vivaldi...”

Per-Sonat

Martin Luther, the great German Reformer, has had not only a lasting theological effect; he also had a big influence on the musical development of his time. He demanded the use of the German language for hymns sung at church services, and thereby created the basis for the early German Lied. Sabine Lutzenberger, a fine early music expert, and her Per-Sonat ensemble present a broad overview of sacred and secular songs from this era.

Eric Sleichim

“WATER & FIRE - Handel revisited”, presenting Handel’s most iconic music arranged for 5 saxophones and grand organ.

Eric Sleichim (founder/leader of Bl!ndman) and Dutch organ player Reitze Smits arranged the Water Music suite and Music for the Royal Fireworks, for saxophone quintet (BL!NDMAN [sax] + Eric Sleichim (once again on alto for this album) and grand organ. Saxophone(s) and organ have already been combined several times in new music. The sound, as well as the dynamics of the instruments, mix splendidly, in the louder passages as well as in the quieter parts. The monumental character of Handel’s orchestral score is emphasized in this unique instrumentation.

Handel’s iconic orchestral suites flank the opening movement of Jean-Féry Rebel’s Les Elémens, a musical punch-in-the-face long ahead of its time.
