Kristjan Järvi and Naïve launch the Kristjan Järvi Sound Project. This original recording series presents the charismatic conductor's extensive classical, world music and jazz collaborations, while capturing the essence of this vibrant and original musical personality. The Kristjan Järvi Sound Project spans Järvi's prolific musical output with an ambitious release schedule over several years. Recordings will reflect all of Kristjan Järvi's activities, from Music Director of MDR Leipzig Radio Symphony Orchestra and the Gstaad Festival Orchestra, to the Baltic Youth Philharmonic (BYP) and his acclaimed classical-world-hip-hop-jazz group, Absolute Ensemble. As a creative force on today's music scene, Järvi is known for his innovative classical music programmes and instinctive vision for cross-genre collaborations. The first album on the Kristjan Järvi Sound Project is 'Balkan Fever' featuring the vibrant colours of folk-influenced orchestral pieces by Enescu and Kodály, with hypnotic sounds, melodies and beats from the Balkans.

The album stars a trio of virtuosic Balkan musicians: kaval-player Theodosii Spassov, and guitarists Miroslav Tadic and Vlatko Stefanovski, whilst the live concert recording captures the highly-charged atmosphere of intoxicating classical-folk-jazz fusion. The result is an electrifying sound experience.

Mihaela Ursuleasa follows her exciting and successful debut CD (0016542BC) with a highly personal album. She performs colourful music from the folklore of the countries she feels especially close to. "You have to admire the clarity of her sound...." New York Times

“This is a playful CD. That is not to say that she doesn't take her music-making seriously. Playing as accomplished as this could not occur without devotion to her art. It is more Ursuleasa seems not to take herself very seriously - an altogether different thing!...her very colourful playing [has] been captured to thrilling effect by the engineering team.” International Record Review, September 2011

Adams, J: Violin Concerto, etc.

Adams, J:

Violin Concerto

Corigliano:

Red Violin ‘Chaconne’

Enescu:

Romanian Rhapsody in A major, Op. 11 No. 1

(arr. Waxman)

Waxman, F:

Tristan and Isolde Fantasia


“The soloist in Sibelius’s Violin Concerto was the beguiling Chloë Hanslip, a sizzling young product of the Yehudi Menuhin School. Hanslip produces a full-blooded sound… Her dazzling technical proficiency made sparks fly.” The Independent, concert review 2005

“It's excellent sense to couple John Adams's Violin Concerto with John Corigliano's Chaconne based on his film music for The Red Violin. Both require bravura of the highest order… This is the fourth recording of the Adams Concerto. …Hanslip's new version seems to me undoubtedly the one to acquire.” BBC Music Magazine, October 2006 *****

“As an overall concept this album is a mess. Franz Waxman's arrangement of Enescu's First Romanian Rhapsody is positioned before the Adams Concerto and sounds like an encore before the main event. Waxman's Tristan and Isolde Fantasia pushes Wagner towards Cecil B DeMille histrionics, while John Corigliano's hacked-together Chaconne is episodic and rhetorical and is severely lacking in the material department.
This is a pity because nothing should hide the fact that Chloë Hanslip is the sort of musician every teenager forced to practise their scales dreams of becoming. The richness and clarity of her tone is beyond learning, and she demonstrates such profound empathy for John Adams's 1993 Violin Concerto that Gidon Kremer (Nonesuch) can consider himself completely outplayed. This is the sort of performance that secures a reputation for life.
The first movement is a particular challenge, as an unwinding melodic line generates itself over a quarter-hour span. Kremer plays the notes mechanically but Hanslip deconstructs their meaning and pieces together a cogent narrative direction that's a bona fide interpretation.
The sing-song ballad quality of the slow middle movement unlocks her lyrical imagination, while the tricky moto perpetuo of the violin part zigzags and breakdances across occasional Nancarrow-like rhythmic overlays in an exuberant finale. Assertive and enthused accompaniment from Slatkin and the RPO, too – everybody's doing Adams the greatest of service.”
Gramophone Classical Music Guide, 2010

“…Chloë Hanslip is the sort of musician every teenager forced to practise their scales dreams of becoming. The richness and clarity of her tone is beyond learning, and she demonstrates such profound empathy for John Adams's 1993 Violin Concerto that Gidon Kremer... consider himself completely outplayed. This is the sort of performance that secures a reputation for life.” Gramophone Magazine, October 2006
