Philippus de Monte - Ensemble Orlando Fribourg - Laurent Gendre

Philippus de Monte - Ensemble Orlando Fribourg - Laurent Gendre
ID: CLAVES502712
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music

Philippus (or Philippe) de Monte and Roland de Lassus are considered the two central figures in the golden age of Franco-Flemish polyphony that originated at the beginning of the 15th century and that determined stylistic trends in Western Europe for nearly two centuries. De Monte was Kapellmeister at the Habsburg court in Vienna from 1568 until his death in 1603 (at the very respectable age of 82); before that he had made a name for himself in Italy and in England - where he met William Byrd but was unhappy working at the court. Extremely prolific, his madrigals are characterized not only by an exquisite mastery of polyphony but also by a special attention to the sung text - he was a disciple of the humanist movement and put particular emphasis on the rhetorical resources of language. His sacred music, also of great import, consists primarily of masses and motets and is comparable to Palastrina’s music. His some 250 motets were written in a style that could be described as typically “Renaissance”. His chansons, fewer in number, took their texts from brilliant Pierre de Ronsard, the preferred poet of the time. The Ensemble Orlando from Fribourg under the direction of Laurent Gendre on their first recording for Claves render homage to all the contrasting facets of Philippus de Monte’s works. Richly documented, the booklet was prepared under the direction of Ignace Bossuyt, professor in Louvain and renowned expert for Franco-Flemish polyphonic music.

Franz Liszt: The Two Piano Concertos / Tottentanz

Franz Liszt: The Two Piano Concertos / Tottentanz
ID: CLAVES502707
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Piano

Following violinist Liviu Prunaru, baritone Herman Wallén and harpist Emmanuel Ceysson, German pianist Joseph Moog was selected from a group of young pianists present at the Sommets Musicaux Festival 2006 in Gstaad/Switzerland to make a recording with orchestra financed by the principal sponsor of the event, the Edmond de Rothschild Private Bank. The young pianist chose Franz Liszt for this first “large-scale” recording endeavor: the two famous piano concertos and the equally famous Danse macabre, works that he enthusiastically embraced with the ardor of youth. As with Emmanuel Ceysson, the Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie RheinlandPfalz and its artistic director Ari Rasilainen were selected to accompany the young musician. This recording represents a fitting homage to the founder of Claves Records, Marguerite Dütschler-Huber, who passed away only three months after having heard and been astonished by Joseph Moog’s talent.

Nicolas Altstaedt - Schumann - Tchaikovsky - Gulda

Nicolas Altstaedt - Schumann - Tchaikovsky - Gulda
ID: CLAVES502901
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Cello and Symphony Orchestra

Like violinists Alexandra Soumm and Liviu Prunaru, baritone Herman Wallén, harpist Emmanuel Ceysson and pianist Joseph Moog in preceding years, French-German cellist Nicolas Altstaedt has been selected from a group of young soloists at the festival Sommets Musicaux de Gstaad 2008 to make a recording with orchestra financed by the manifestation’s principal partner, the Edmond de Rothschild Private Bank. A student of Boris Pergamenchikov (Altstaedt was one of the last to profit from his mastery), the artist of 27 years already is active internationally - notably, he is one of the very few European musicians to have been selected by the Lincoln Center Chamber Music Society in New York to perform in its concert series and tours. He has chosen two virtuoso works from the 19th century (Schumann’s Cello Concerto and Tchaikowsky’s Rococo Variations) as well as Friedrich Gulda’s fascinating Concerto for Cello and Wind Band for his first recording with orchestra. This is a very promising calling card, made hand in hand with conductor Alexander Joel and the Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz. It is likewise a beautiful homage to the founder of Claves Records, Marguerite Dütschler-Huber, who initiated this undertaking, and which since her passing in June 2006 has been christened the “Marguerite Dütschler Prize”.

Alexandra Soumm - Bruch - Paganini - Violin Concertos No. 1: virtuoso debut with orchestra

Alexandra Soumm - Bruch - Paganini - Violin Concertos No. 1: virtuoso debut with orchestra
ID: CLAVES502808
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Violin

Like violinist Liviu Prunaru, singer Herman Wallén, harpist Emmanuel Ceysson and pianist Joseph Moog before her, French violinist Alexandra Soumm was selected from a group of young soloists present at the Sommets Musicaux Festival in Gstaad in 2007 to make a recording with orchestra financed by the principal sponsor, Edmond de Rothschild Private Bank. A student of the great Boris Kuschnir and already well-established in an international career, this brilliant artist (not yet twenty - she will celebrate this birthday in 2009) chose two virtuoso concertos from the 19th century for her first major recording: Niccolò Paganini’s First Violin Concerto and Max Bruch’s Violin Concerto No. 1. An extremely auspicious visiting card, the recording was made with the Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz under the direction of Austrian conductor Georg Mark. It is also a fitting homage to the founder of Claves Records, Marguerite Dütschler-Huber, who also initiated this adventure, which since her death in June 2006 bears the name “Prix Marguerite Dütschler”.

Bohuslav Martinu - The 3 Sonatas For Cello & Piano - Mattia Zappa - Massimiliano Manolfi

Bohuslav Martinu - The 3 Sonatas For Cello & Piano - Mattia Zappa - Massimiliano Manolfi
ID: CLAVES502803
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Piano and Cello

Although he did not play the instrument himself, Bohuslav Martinu was particularly fond of the cello, and this affinity is reflected in his music. In particular, he wrote three sonatas for the instrument over the space of some fifteen years, years marked by great political tensions and upheavals. The first sonata was composed in Paris in 1940 and was a reaction to the Munich Agreement, deplored by all Czechoslovakians. The second sonata was one of the first works that Martinu wrote during his exile in America. And the third was written in Washington in 1953, first spawned during his vacation in Vieux Moulin, France in the summer of 1952. The passions and torments of this history captivated the Zappa - Mainolfi Duo. Their dazzling performance of these sonatas, a coproduction with DeutschlandRadioBerlin, marks their debut with Claves.

After a first volume dedicated to Russian music (Claves CD 502720), the young Nota Bene Trio from the canton of Valais, Switzerland, are back with a programme that is 100% ….Swiss! This recording is truly a sensational experience as many of these chamber riches are still relatively unknown.

Mendelssohn - Piano Concertos Op. 25 & Op. 40 - Chamber Version - Fumiko Shiraga

Mendelssohn - Piano Concertos Op. 25 & Op. 40 - Chamber Version - Fumiko Shiraga
ID: CLAVES502910
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Quartet

The Japanese pianist Fumiko Shiraga has made a specialty in recent years of performing famous concertos with a small group of instrumentalists. She calls this project “concertos in disguise.” “It was common in the 19th century to present concert performances of large-scale works in a scaled-down version,” she explains. “There were many fewer orchestras then on the musical scene than there are today, and so one had recourse to the musicians that were available and adapted the music according to the instrumentarium.” Beyond such practical considerations, these arrangements can be appreciated on a purely artistic level. To Fumiko Shiraga’s mind, small formations offer many advantages. “When one plays with an orchestra, the result depends in large part on the conductor, on his or her ideas and ability to enter into the world of the soloist. With a small ensemble it is quite different - one is flexible, reactive. One reaches the limits of fortissimo much more quickly, and thus the piano has much wider expressive possibilities, particularly in the intimist register.” For her first recording for Claves, she has chosen Felix Mendelssohn’s concertos Opus 25 and Opus 40, arranged by Cord Garben for piano and string quintet. Plus: six Romances without Words delicately arranged for piano, violin, and cello. Chamber music on symphonic or soloist notes - a rediscovery!
