Although she disliked being typecast as a Spanish music specialist, there’s no doubt that Alicia de Larrocha’s way with this music is in a class by itself. No matter what the repertoire for a recital she gave, regardless of whether it included Spanish music, she was often called upon by her audiences to provide at least one Spanish encore. Over her performing lifetime she built up many of these and in 1974 made a recording of thirteen of them entitled ‘Spanish Piano Music’ (SXL 6734: tracks 1–13 on this reissue). This LP forms the core of this reissue and is filled out with other encore-worthy Spanish titles. While Albéniz (with six pieces) and Granados (with four) form the core of the reissue, there’s also zesty Spanish Baroque music by Mateo Albéniz (no relation of Isaac) and Antonio Soler, two dances from Falla ballet music despatched with disarming ease by Larrocha in their keyboard versions, and miniatures by Halffter, Nin-Culmell and Montsalvatge.

“de Larrocha at her finest: this LP-and-a-half's worth of Albeniz, Granados, Falla, Soler and other captures this music's idiomatic heart, with ebullient rhythms, soulful melodies and exquisite tonal warmth.” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas 2014 *****

“Each track is excellently recorded, and Miss de Larrocha does everything possible for these little pieces, from the piquant sub-Scarlatti of Matéo Albéniz and Soler to the items by Isaac Albéniz and Granados ... This music is mainly an evocation of dance and song, and the vividness and clarity, light and warmth are everywhere apparent” Gramophone Magazine

Alban Gerhardt (cello) & Cecile Licad (piano)

This sensational new release from German cellist Alban Gerhardt recaptures the novelty of the much-loved encores performed by Pablo Casals. Spanish-born Casals was universally recognized as one of the world’s greatest cellists and had a vast repertoire of intimate encores which were adored by his audiences. The disc features transcriptions of works by many notable composers including Fauré, Chopin, Saint-Saëns, Boccherini and Wagner. Also featured are frequently performed musical gems by David Popper: Vito, Chanson villageoise and his Mazurka in G minor, pieces which have gained a special place in the cello literature.

Gerhardt performs these miniature masterworks with extraordinary finesse and verve. His very personal interpretations never lapse into self-indulgence and he projects a distinctive luminescence of tone with infallible intonation. Gerhardt is intelligently partnered and perfectly matched by pianist Cecile Licad on her Hyperion debut. This unique disc demonstrates sublime musicianship, with both performers revelling in a wide expressive scope from the vivacious to the lyrical.

“There is much more to an encore, as Alban Gerhardt will tell you, than casually capping a recital with an audience-pleaser...Listen to Gerhardt in Benjamin Godard’s Berceuse de Jocelyn and there is a paradigm of the exceptional eloquence and discernment that distinguishes the entire disc.” The Telegraph, 2nd June 2011 *****

“his playing [is] less heart-on-sleeve than Casals's own, but wonderfully eloquent and noble: he can be extraordinarily moving in such once-familiar standards as the Berceuse from Godard's Jocelyn, or in Casals's arrangement of Chopin's Raindrop Prelude...Some of this music makes considerable demands on the pianist, and Cecile Licad rises to its challenges with considerable elegance.” The Guardian, 9th June 2011 ****

“Gerhardt has a honeyed, liquid tone all his own. He has created a well-contrasted programme that clearly took a long time to research and hone...This is cello playing of exquisite sophistication and bold imagination. Casals, I feel sure, would have approved.” BBC Music Magazine, August 2011 *****

“An unexpected disc from a cellist one usually thinks of as a heavyweight...he brings to them absolutely the same seriousness of approach and sensitivity that he does to everything. And it works for an album that feels worthwhile as well as easily digestible.” Gramophone Magazine, September 2011

‘The music on this CD reflects my character. It tells the listener who I am.’ Miloš Karadaglić

Charismatic guitarist Miloš Karadaglić debuts on Deutsche Grammophon with an album saluting his instrument’s Mediterranean heritage. Born in the Balkan state of Montenegro, Miloš’s love-affair with the guitar began when he was eight, when his father played him a recording of Segovia making magic with Albeniz’s ‘Asturias’. Miloš gave his first public performance at nine, entered (and won) his first national competition at eleven. He became a star performer on television and radio, took guitar master-classes in Belgrade, and then, shortly after the end of the Balkan war, decided to try for a scholarship at London’s Royal Academy of Muisic.

Miloš’s choices of solo repertoire as well as music for guitar and orchestra are guaranteed to appeal to all lovers of guitar, classical and non-classical alike.

“He punched through this trio of ballads (El Decamerón Negro) with an innate poise and elegance that made you sit up and listen . . . And then the firecracker: A superbly inflected, impeccably judged rendition of Ginastera’s Sonata − a giant tapestry of sound combining luminous melancholy and bravura energy” (The Times)

Bonus DVD

The DVD features a 30min documentary with footage filmed in Montenegro and London. The film brings Miloš’s inspirational story to light, an evocative and beautifully photographed piece that explores his background and how he came to be who he is today. It will showcase Miloš’s talent, his style of play and unique approach to classical guitar and his desire to redefine it as a contemporary instrument. Miloš wants to make classical guitar matter; he wants us to fall in love with its beauty and raw passion and bring new audiences to its repertoire.

The film will not just focus on Miloš the guitarist, but also the person behind the guitar. This will build a bridge between the human story and music, giving the viewer an opportunity to get to know a young man from Montenegro and how each stage of his life has contributed to bringing him to this point.

“Karadaglic can articulate rapidly with the best of them, but what stands out even in busy textures is an unshakably serene breadth of phrasing, fluent rhythm and unforced rubato...Nor does he need to draw attention to his own virtuosity, and his music-making is all the more absorbing for it.” BBC Music Magazine, May 2011 *****

“Understandably, he focuses mainly on the instrument's Iberian heritage, with dextrous readings of the familiar Tárrega and Albéniz standards: the latter's Asturias is delivered with poise and clarity, while the superb trilling triplets of Tárrega's Recuerdos de la Alhambra are perfectly measured. Elsewhere, two tunes by Mikis Theodorakis offer a taste of the guitarist's Balkan heritage.” The Independent, 22nd April 2011 ****

“The playing is lithe, subtle of timbre and transcendentally beautiful.” The Telegraph, 12th May 2011 *****

“there are masterpieces here: classic arrangements of piano pieces from Albeniz’s Suite espagnola and Granados’s Danzas espagnolas, dazzlingly played, and works by the contemporary composers Carlo Domeniconi and Mikis Theodorakis that emphasise the Islamic influence on this essentially Mediterranean music.” Sunday Times, 29th May 2011 ****

“Karadaglić demonstrates exemplary technical skill and command of the instrument, musical flair and some really arresting and unusual tone colours in the style of his hero Julian Bream...He's at his most impressive and exciting in the transcriptions of piano works by Albeniz - Asturias and Granada - where his brilliant technique is evident.” Classic FM Magazine, July 2011 ***

Concerto Malaga String Orchestra, Jose Serebrier

This delightful album of Spanish music arranged for strings and celebrating the 150th anniversary of Enrique Granados, was recorded by legendary conductor Jose Serebrier and Concerto Malaga String Orchestra founded in 1996. The orchestra is now one of the foremost ensembles in Spain, best known for its dedicated research into string repertoire ranging from the 17th century onwards. Ther recording pays tribute to one of Spain's most important composers, Enrique Granados and also includes works by Granados's contemporaries and successors who played active roles in promoting Barcelona's and Madrid's musical life in the middle of the 19th century. Over a century after his tragic death, Granados's music continues to entertain and inspire performers and listeners the world over. He spent his entire life in Barcelona and contributed to its musical life as apianist, composer, teacher, conductor, and concert organizer. He was thus only a true champion of Spanish music but he was also a leading figure in the Catalan movement known as modernisme which was on display in much of Barcelona's architecture from around 1900. Granados's best-known collection of 12 Danzas espanolas was premiered in Barcelona in 189. No. 5, Andaluza, transports us to the south of Spain with its suggestion of an impassioned song supported by an energetic guitar accompaniment. Orienta is an all-purpose adjective that suggests anything associated with Andalusia or the Middle East. The Intermezzo from his opera Goyescas and the hauntingly beautiful Pequena Romanza are eloquent examples of his broad stylistic range.
