Katerina Chroboková (organ)

KATT – a story of the organ and voice, a story of seeking one’s own path.

This is a story. It begins in a faintly familiar manner, yet after a while it takes you to never-thought-of regions where, besides the organ, Pärt’s “spiritual minimalism” and Messiaen’s heavenly birdsong, you encounter – unexpectedly and persistently – the human voice, in its full emotionality and tenderness. KATT is an element tearing down walls, including those between genres. Study at prestigious schools (the Schola Cantorum Basel among them) and collaboration with outstanding orchestras (Anima Eterna, the Royal Flemish Philharmonic, etc.) have led her to masterful performance of music ranging from Bach to young composers of her generation.

Her intuition and fascination with the sonic potentialities of the organ (particularly the incredible plethora of delicate timbres and tinges!) have led her even further – to creating her own pieces and, ultimately, to employing her own voice. She draws inspiration from the songs of the earliest Christian traditions, from sacral architecture, as well as the atmosphere of the moment. You may choose to listen attentively to the pieces by Bach, Messiaen and Pärt, splendidly and singularly performed on the wonderful four-manual organ of the Basilica in Echternach, Luxembourg’s oldest town. Or you may choose also to accept the invitation to immerse yourself in a story and witness a fascinating quest.

“A player of considerable ability, her fascination with minimalist patterns is shown well in her own work, Slavkof, contrasting reflective and brilliant writing…her singing in two works based on old chant will surprise many – ranging from a whisper to a shout” Choir & Organ, August 2016 ***

“Katt comes across as a remarkably strait-laced organist, delivering Bach’s BWV565 Toccata with beautifully crisp articulation and a minimum of effect, especially in a fugue where echo effects are decidedly subtle” Gramophone Magazine, July 2016

Masaaki Suzuki (Schnitger/Hinz organ in the Martinikerk, Groningen)

The recipient of the 2012 City of Leipzig Bach Medal, Masaaki Suzuki has earned an enviable reputation as an interpreter of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach – as a reviewer in International Record Guide has put it: 'With Suzuki you can hear Bach's heart beat'. To a wide audience he is known as the director of Bach Collegium Japan, and the moving force behind the ensemble's acclaimed recordings of Bach's complete sacred cantatas. Perhaps less well known is that he began his career – at the age of 12! – playing the organ at church services in Kobe, where he was born. Suzuki has remained true to the organ throughout his life, and for BIS he has previously recorded Bach's German Organ Mass, as well as programmes of Buxtehude and Sweelinck. He here appears on a disc which combines some of Bach's best-loved works for the instrument, including the D minor Toccata and Fugue, the Partitas on ‘O Gott, du frommer Gott’, BWV 767, the Canonic Variations, BWV 769, and the celebrated Prelude and Fugue in E minor, BWV 548. The recording was made in Groningen's Martinikerk, with Suzuki performing on the renowned organ, one of the most important and impressive in the Netherlands.

“One of the most versatile of all Bachians, Masaaki Suzuki still manages to spring a surprise with this outstanding recital...From its woody chuff to bright rasp, the instrument is superbly captured here and Suzuki uses it with flair and imagination...both this performance [of Von Himmel Hoch] and that of the pungent Pastorale breathe wioth the best seasonal spirit.” BBC Music Magazine, January 2016 *****

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

Robert Quinney (Metzler Organ of Trinity College, Cambridge)

Continuing its work with the rising stars of the early music world, CORO is delighted to be releasing its second recording with one of The Sixteen Orchestra’s principal members - organist Robert Quinney.

This new album, which was recorded at Trinity College, Cambridge, on the beautiful Metzler Organ, features a number of virtuosic works from Bach's early years including one of the most famous pieces of organ music in the repertory - the Toccata and Fugue in D minor (BWV 565). The disc also includes the Toccata and Fugue in F (BWV 540) and the Passacaglia (BWV 582) - one of Bach’s most well-known and important organ works. Robert Schumann described the variations of the Passacaglia as "intertwined so ingeniously that one can never cease to be amazed."

Robert Quinney is Director of Music at Peterborough Cathedral. As Sub-Organist of Westminster Abbey he played at the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton in April 2011. In addition to his daily work, he maintains a busy freelance schedule as a soloist and ensemble player, and is also Director of Oundle for Organists. His double compact disc The Grand Organ of Westminster Cathedral, recorded in 2004, was Instrumental Disc of the Month in BBC Music, earned a 5-star review in the French journal Diapason, and was an Editor’s Choice in Gramophone. His first disc for CORO - J.S. Bach Trio Sonatas for Organ (COR16095) - also received excellent reviews when it was released in October 2011.

“It is an organ of beautifully defined sonorities, well suited to the music. The programme begins with the D minor Toccata and Fugue, to which Quinney brings a remarkable freshness thanks to his flamboyant decorations.” Sunday Times, 4th August 2013

“the most distinctive feature is the way Quinney's authoritative distillation of the music never results in dry, academic essays - while, also, never playing to the gallery with maverick rhetorical effects...Quinney's Bach gets to the heart of the music with refreshing clarity and a communication born of genuine understanding.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2013

“Several of Bach's greatest hits for the organ are heard here on an ideal instrument (Trinity College, Cambridge) in sober performances from Robert Quinney.” BBC Music Magazine, Christmas Issue 2013 ****

Alborada del gracioso (Miroirs No. 4)


Exquis! Stephen Hough presents an enchanting programme of French music, played with the filigree perfection and total command of the music’s expressive world that make him one of the most admired pianists of today. In typical Houghian style this recital is full of surprises and lesser-known gems from the repertoire, as well as works by the masters Fauré, Ravel, Debussy and Poulenc. A particular delight is Hough’s own arrangement of the Massenet song Crépuscule, a ravishing exercise in creative yet faithful transcription. This release is both a tribute to the lyric genius which flowered in nineteenth- and twentieth-century France, and a glimpse into the musical mind of a great pianist.

Read Presto's complete review of this disc here.

“His latest album recital is among the most enjoyable. “A sort of musical dessert trolley,” he calls it — a trolley where you want to eat everything in sight...The Fauré selections best display Hough’s connoisseur’s touch...The lighter French spirit surfaces in Hough’s own arrangements of Délibes and Massenet, delivered with delicious wit and grace.” The Times, 31st August 2012 ****

“it's a superlative performance [of Alborada del gracioso] by any standards, including repeated notes that turn me green with envy.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2012 ***

“personal touches make Hough the artist he is, but I can imagine some musical Francophiles balking at his free interpretation of Fauré’s D flat Nocturne, and more so at his eccentric Debussy (Clair de lune). Yet there are compensations aplenty: Ravel’s Alborada del gracioso and Fauré’s F sharp minor Impromptu are glitteringly played.” Sunday Times, 2nd September 2012

“a substantial feast of of masterly pianism...Hough can be too coolly objective at times but in this repertoire, perhaps paradoxically, the expressive simplicity of his playing can make your eyes burn. In Clair de lune and Chaminade's once ubiquitous Automne, now rarely heard, Hough conjures up a heart-catching melancholy that put me in mind of Cherkassy. I can't offer higher praise.” Gramophone Magazine, Awards Issue 2012

“[Hough’s] one of those keyboard polymaths who’s at home in whatever music he chooses to play, invariably casting new light on the familiar in the process. And the better-known items here do delight...But you’ll want this for the rarities...playing and recording are beyond reproach.” The Arts Desk, 6th October 2012

“what struck me on first hearing was the consistent clarity of his approach. In lesser hands a programme like this could so easily dissipate into a series of soft-focus washes of sound, but even in the most familiar pieces I found myself becoming aware of countermelodies and overarching phrases which had never before caught my attention.” Katherine Cooper, Presto Classical, 3rd September 2012
