Composers usually regard the viola as a part of the orchestra and thus a few works for viola have been written. Recordings of talented viola players are very rare. In the limited number of works for viola, the listener can appreciate the beautiful sound and varied potentialities of the instrument.
Elissaveta Staneva is one of the renowned viola players world-wide. She was born in Plovdiv, Bulgaria, studied at the Secondary Music School in Plovdiv and continued her education at the State Academy of Music in Sofia and at the University of Music in Vienna.

From 1992 to 1996 she was a member of Gustav Mahler Youth Orchestra under the direction of Claudio Abbado, and played later on in the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. She has been principle viola of the Graz Philharmonic Orchestra (Austria) since 2001.

The Galeazzi Ensemble - The Age of Elegance, (18th century music for flute & strings)

 The Galeazzi Ensemble - The Age of Elegance, (18th century music for flute & strings)
ID: LIR001
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Flute

This is the first disc recorded by the Galeazzi Ensemble and is a perfect example of a CD that presents the familiar and the unfamiliar. The works recorded are all flute quartets - an incredibly popular medium of the time - and the group have chosen a selection which spans the last 30 years of the 18th century, beginning with Haydn, and working through those composers who would have been his friends and associates.

There is some mystery surrounding one of the works on the disc - the prelude supposedly by Mozart to team with the arrangement of the elder Bach's Fugue in D minor. Rather like some of the movements from the later Requiem, the work has all the characteristics of Mozart, but there seems to be a little doubt over its authenticity.

All the composers featured on this discs were incredibly prolific in their composing, whilst juggling several other balls. J.C.Bach, the "London Bach", was music master to the Royal Family, his role there encompassing conducting, composing, concert management, and accompanying the family at the keyboard. Hoffmeister ran a publishing house, producing works by the likes of Haydn, Beethoven and Mozart, and Pleyel's career is even more astounding since he was something of an entrepreneur, opening a music shop, a publishing house and a piano factory. Despite their extra-curricular activities, these are fine works, and are well placed with works by their more well-known contemporaries and friends, Haydn and Mozart.

Views of Vienna - The Galeazzi Ensemble (A musical journey through 18th century Vienna)

Views of Vienna - The Galeazzi Ensemble  (A musical journey through 18th century Vienna)
ID: LIR008
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

This is the Galeazzi Ensemble's 2nd recording on London Independent and follows on from the enormous success, both critically and commercially, of their first recording "The Age of Elegance".

Like their previous CD, this recording presents works by familiar faces - Schubert’s sumptuous string trio and Mozart’s flute quartet, written purely for money - but also introduces us to some less celebrated figures such as Gyrowetz, the young pretender to Mozart’s symphonic genius whose dainty quartet looks very much backwards into the classical era, Dittersdorf, the colourful favourite of the Austrian Empress, who effortlessly explores the nuances of string writing with energy and style, and Hoffmeister, the entrepreneur of the musical world - publisher, agent and banker - whose quartet is full of musical surprises!
