“'What hard things,' wrote Saint-Saëns, 'have been said against virtuosity!… The fact must be proclaimed from the house-tops – in art a difficulty overcome is a thing of beauty.' There are many such beauties in Le Carnaval des animaux, and their difficulties aren't for the faint-hearted or the technically challenged, especially where the two pianists are concerned. On this disc not only are the difficulties overcome, but dispatched with tremendous verve and wit.
In the Septet the players rightly refuse to make more of the music than is really there. This light touch allows us to relish Saint-Saëns's professionalism: every part in the texture has its own shape and colour and, if there were compositional difficulties to be overcome, you'd never know. The four shorter pieces on this splendid disc include the delicious Fantaisie for violin and harp, and three arrangements for cello and piano taken from the horn, organ and operatic repertoires.”

Thomas Leleu (tuba)

Thomas Leleu Sextet & Orquesta Sinfonica de Lara, Tarcisio Barreto Ceballos

As the winner of the Victoires de la Musique Classique award (the French equivalent of the Grammy Awards) in 2012 at the age of 24, named instrumental soloist 'Revelation of the Year', Thomas Leleu is the first tuba player to obtain this coveted distinction.

At only 27, he is already enjoying a remarkable career: known as the young international star of the tuba, his musicality and astonishing deftness make him a unique genius of his instrument. In his hands, the instrument takes on a contemporary shine, revealing an almost infinite range, a delicacy and complexity that have rejuvenated it. With his determination to break down the barriers between classic and contemporary music, his eclecticism and his free, fun approach to concert playing, he is the ideal emissary of his instrument.

This album is an accomplishment in the life of a young artist and foundational in the world of music - it may well mark a decisive turning point. Leleu, who has retained all of his love for the stage and his exhilarating force, has once again turned to composition, an activity for which he possesses true talent but that he had to put aside while working on his instrument.

In 2012, Leleu founded the Thomas Leleu Sextet and became a godfather of the youth development and social change organisation El-Sistema-France. He is the Melton Meinl/Weston Artist and ambassador for the Buffet Group of wind instruments. Working with the prestigious German instrument manufacturer, he helped develop the 2250 TL 'French Touch' tuba that he now plays.

Ballet, Chorus and Orchestra of the Mariinsky Theatre, Valery Gergiev

The Mariinsky Theatre in St. Petersburg is one of the most prestigious opera and ballet venues in the world. Built in 1860 and named in honour of Maria Alexandrovna of Hesse-Darmstadt, wife of Czar Alexander II, it is home to the famous Mariinsky Ballet as well as numerous international stars and ensembles. After the turn of the millennium it was painstakingly restored; and since 2013, St. Petersburg’s Theatre Square has been crowned with the “Mariinsky II” an imposing new arts and performance venue. At its inauguration on May 2, 2013, the highly gifted conductor Valery Gergiev led a veritable who’s who of the classical music world. Featuring gems from opera, orchestral music and ballet, and with modern dance interludes, the programme encompassed the history of the legendary venue from its beginnings to the present day. This broad historical span was symbolically represented by a bridge connecting the Mariinsky Theatre and the Mariinsky II. Arthaus Musik is now offering you a unique opportunity to own an enduring reminder of this unique performance, in which stars including Anna Netrebko, Plácido Domingo, Olga Borodina, Vladimir Shklyarov and René Pape supported by the Mariinsky Theatre chorus, orchestra and ballet celebrate the spirit of this illustrious establishment.

The recording studio of the Welte firm on 5th Avenue with the organists Clarence Eddy, Samuel Atkinson Baldwin, Lynnwood Farnam, Richard Epstein & Edwin H. Lemare

The firm of M. Welte & Söhne maintained a branch in New York from 1865 until 1917 under the name of M. Welte & Sons. It had been established by Emil Welte (1841–1923, son of the company‘s founder); he lived in the USA permanently, only rarely visiting Freiburg. A recording studio with a grand piano for making piano recordings and a recording organ could be found at the best address on 5th Avenue. Piano recordings of the Welte firm were thus not only made in Freiburg im Breisgau from 1905 until 1932, but also in New York.
