Sciarrino: Macbeth

Sciarrino: Macbeth


Otto Katzameier (Macbeth) Anna Radziejewski (Lady Macbeth)

Volkalensemble NOVA, Klangforum Wein, Evan Christ

Unspeakable evil in the nameless acts – col legno proudly presents Salvatore Sciarrino’s Macbeth, recorded at the 2011 Salzburg Festival, released for the first time on CD. The infiltration of microorganisms of sound, restless reticence, ephemeral slitherings, whisperings, whizzings…all of which develops into an intensity that only the great Italian master is capable of creating.

“The elusive soundworld, often on the edge of audibility, is instantly recognisable as Sciarrino's, a wonderfully consistent and compellingly obsessive creation that retains the power to shock and surprise...This wonderfully supple, controlled performance...emphasises both the strange, ethereal beauty of Sciarrino's world, and the dramatic coherence of the 100-minute opera. It's utterly compelling” The Guardian, 29th November 2012 ****

A very special box set from Kairos featuring the works of Salvatore Sciarrino. All of his compositions for large orchestra are included. “He searches for exceptional situations that throw the listeners back upon themselves. These can be deliberately designed to lead right to the edge of madness, but also to relaxed meditation”. (Martina Seeber).

“..the Kairos set… has a marvellous sense of the "right" colour… Here's some of the most stimulating and instinctively radical new music on record.” Gramophone Magazine, February 2009

“Sciarrino's music requires committed, discriminating performances...the RAI orchestra...manage this essentially textural music with scrupulous refinement” The Guardian, 17th October 2008

Sciarrino: Quartetto No. 7 & No. 8 & Sei Quartetti Brevi


Sciarrino:

Quartetto No. 7

Quartetto No. 8

Sei Quartetti Brevi


Kairos is proud to announce the release of three string quartets by renowned Italian composer Salvatore Sciarrino, recorded by the brilliant Quartetto Prometeo. The group has worked closely with the composer for years, leading him to dedicate two pieces to it, one of which is included on this CD, the Quartetto No. 8.

The three quartets, Quartetto No. 7, Quartetto No.8, and Sei quartette brevi were written over a time span of fortyone years, but despite this long range of time, Sciarrino’s idiosyncratic musicality is recognizable in every piece.

However, each of the three pieces included in this collection is starkly individual, an ‘interruption’ within the ‘continuity’ of Sciarrino’s oeuvre. In Quartetto No. 7, we are confronted with the composer’s attempt to transfer techniques he developed for voice writing to strings, and in Sei quartette brevi with the enduring legacy of both Beethoven and the post-war avant-garde. This concept of a conscious historical dialog through a personal filter is also present in the Quartetto No.8.

“Quartetto Prometeo project a very composer-specific sound world; vibrato-less rustling, clean-cut lines, a deadpan/aloof tone that renews expressivity. Sciarrino wrote his Eighth Quartet for the group in 2008 and they savour its labyrinths and hidden melodies.” Gramophone Magazine, June 2013

“They are beautiful, haunting pieces; an attempt, Sciarrino says, to apply to instruments what he has developed in his music for voices. The Quartetto Prometeo plays them with just the right sense of bewitching allure.” The Guardian, 14th March 2013 ****

Salvatore Sciarrino was born in 1947 in Palermo and counts today among the most influential contemporary composers, especially known for his dramatic stage compositions. For the past three years he has been the artistic director of the Teatro Communale in Bologna and teaches at the conservatoires in Milan, Perugia and Florence as well as giving master classes. He lives in Città di Castello, a small town in Umbria.

“Il gionale della necropoli (2000) for accordion and orchestra is fully matured Sciarrino… The WDR SO play this testing music precisely and tell its story well…” Gramophone Magazine, February 2009

“Sciarrino's music requires committed, discriminating performances...and the WDR Cologne Symphony ...manage this essentially textural music with scrupulous refinement” The Guardian, 17th October 2008

...But…

...But…


Matre:

...but I must have said this before

Nordheim:

Concerto for Cello and Chamber Orchestra 'Tenebrae'

Sciarrino:

Atem


Ensemble Ernst

'From the first listening I have been fascinated by the way in which the formal music of Ørjan Matre seems to combine opposite types of music: on the one hand, timbral pointillism in the spirit of Anton Webern; on the other hand, rhythmically resilient music with repeating patterns. The two types of music have often been viewed as mutually exclusive. The title “Atem” is of course taken from the German word for “breath”.

The work was commissioned by the Kristiansand Symphony Orchestra and is written for 4 woodwinds, 4 brass players, 2 percussionists, and a string quintet. Typical for the Matre sound laboratory is that all the instruments, not only the winds, are expected to produce breathing sounds. Now it may well be inappropriate to present an interpretation for listeners who themselves are qualified to point out the connections between the title and the work. Nonetheless: We note that all choices are made in the light of the simple sound description of the title: “Breath”.

The solo strings playing as a quintet on this recording have a more precise breathing sound than a tutti section, which one might expect of a work commissioned by a symphony orchestra. Another point from Matre’s laboratory is his deep insight into the playing techniques of the various instruments. Every single deviation from standard playing technique is described in detail in the score, strengthening the musicians’ confidence in the composer. I do not wish to bore the listener with examples, apart from one, where the strings play harmonics that do not resonate naturally. My guess is that Matre has taken this elegant manner of using “harmonics” in quotation marks from the Italian Salvatore Sciarrino.'
