Les Trilles du Diable

After his Echo Award-Winning Album Journey East, we present Nemanja’s eagerly awaited new album on Deutsche Grammophon

This "exceptionally talented” violinist, a growing star in France, now turns to the roots of classical music, to one of the most popular composers of our time: Bach

He has recorded a unique and very personal collection of Bach hits, including new arrangements of the famous Chaconne, the Air on a G string and the Toccata + Fugue

These tracks in particular offer opportunity for high-visibility streaming placement! Please reach out to your local streaming account managers already – international plan to follow!

Album includes Johann Christian Bach’s (one of the composer’s musician sons) delightfully poetic and rarely performed Viola Concerto.

Radulović plays both the violin and the viola on this recording – it’s his recording debut as a viola player!

“Vibrato? Absolutely. Portamentos? Yes. Tempo and metre? Let’s be exciting. It’s not overdone, and it is couched within a Baroque performance framework. Still, there is a spirit of freedom and the results are passionate readings that yank the great JS down from the heavens back into visceral humanity” Gramophone Magazine, January 2017

Sinfonietta Cracovia

In January 2015, Moog Music, the 60-year-old analogue synthesizer company, announced that for the first time in more than 30 years, it would once again build the large format modular synthesizers first introduced by its founder, Dr. Robert Moog in 1964. 2015, the 50th anniversary year of Moog synthesizers also marks the 10th anniversary of the passing of Dr. Robert ‘Bob’ Moog (1934-2005), inventor of the Moog synthesizer. To mark these anniversaries, Sony Classical is issuing ‘Bach to Moog’ – a brand-new album showcasing the reissued Moog Modular Synthesizer as well as the modern generation of Moog synthesizers, which presents the glorious works of Johann Sebastian Bach in a compelling and contemporary way. The album is produced by American-born composer, arranger and record producer Craig Leon, famous for his work with The Ramones and Blondie, as well as his work in the classical arena with such leading artists as Luciano Pavarotti, Joshua Bell and Sir James Galway. On Bach to Moog, Leon blends his love and mastery of classical music, electronic music and synthesizers and is joined by acclaimed British classical violinist, Jennifer Pike (the youngest ever winner of the BBC Young Musician of the Year competition) alongside the Sinfonietta Cracovia.

“An utterly exhilarating listening experience which will captivate old fans and newbies alike…ably supported by Sinfonietta Cracovia and with Pike so obviously getting the project, Leon manages to leave you with the sense you're hearing this music for the first time and having an absolute ball into the bargain.” Gramophone Magazine, August 2015

Austrian multi-talented pianist and composer Friedrich Gulda initiated the festival Münchner Klaviersommer in the early 1980s as a platform for crossover concerts. For these, he invited talented piano-playing colleagues with Classical and Jazz backgrounds. In these two programmes from 1982 and 1989 Gulda performs together with the Jazz legends Chick Corea and Herbie Hancock as well as the gifted and internationally renowned Cypriote pianist Nicolas Economou.

Besides Gulda’s favourite composers Bach and Mozart the first concert features his own compositions and improvisations as well as arrangements for two pianos, which he plays together with Herbie Hancock. In the second concert Gulda, Corea and Economou play various highly ambitious improvisations on three pianos.
