Christoph Sietzen

We challenge anyone to listen to five minutes of Christoph Sietzen’s new GENUIN release without twitching their toes, tapping along with their fingers, and being seized with the irresistible urge to get up and start dancing! The prizewinner of the 2014 ARD Music Competition takes us on a trip through the percussion worlds of the late 20th and early 21st centuries that 70s groupies would have taken large quantities of drugs in order to emulate. Sietzen dazzles us with his sheer precision, seemingly endless range of tonal colors, and musical drive. From Arvo Pärt to Iannis Xenakis, from Emmanuel Séjourné to Bruce Hamilton – expanded consciousness guaranteed!

Quattrocento

The Quattrocento is one of the most important periods of European art scene. It is located throughout the 15th century and is the birthplace of the Renaissance. In no unified Italy this century art, dance and music represented the power of gobernants before other regions. So at Alfonso the Magnanimous Kingdom in Naples, were the best Aragonese and Flemish musicians and theoreticians of the time (Tinctoris and Orihuela), a revival of the ancient theater (Sannazaro and Carite) and dance (Domenico di Piacenza and Antonio Cornazano). With first dance treatrises they looked for a humanistic and neoplatonic conception of dance, as a manifestation of the spirit of the movement. Often princes and courtiers were simultaneously actors, musicians and dancers in the performances or farces. In the Italian courts of the 15th century, including the Aragonese, it is found the perfect melting pot where culture of humanism flourishes.

Men det afgørende er selvfølgelig, at det synges så godt. Klassisk november 2017

❤❤❤❤
Gens forløser det fromme og religiøse med et udtryk, der række fra det blide og inderlige til det ekstatiske og brændende." Politiken 16 oktober 2017.

Den franske sopran Veronique Gens anses for at være blandt de mest fremtrædende sopraner på opera- og recitalscenen i det 21. århundrede. Hun er ofte blevet forbundet med barok-repertoire, men er idag også yderst anerkendt for sine præstationer i Mozarts operaer og værker af Berlioz, Fauré, Debussy og Poulenc.

På 'Visions' præsenterer Véronique Gens med et nyt soloalbum med romatiske opera arier. Her viser hun sin fulde udvikling af hendes "falcon sopran" - en sjælden mellem-stemmmetype mellem den dramatiske sopran og mezzosopranen, dvs. en mørkere farvet dramatisk sopran.

Albummet indeholder arier fra alle genrer i den romantiske periode: Opera, opéra-comique, oratorier og kantater.
Albummet er anmeldt af bl.a. det hæderkronede engelske magasin Gramophone, der kalder hendes vokal for "simpelthen betagende".

Image OPERA WINNER 2018:
Proserpine

The protagonist of Saint-Saëns’ Proserpine, premiered at the Opéra-Comique on 14 March 1887, is no reincarnation of the ancient goddess, but a Renaissance courtesan well versed in culpable amours. According to the composer, she is ‘a damned soul for whom true love is a forbidden fruit; as soon as she approaches it, she experiences torture’. Yet for all the innocence of her rival Angiola, the unexpected happens: ‘It is the bloodthirsty beast that is admirable; the sweet creature is no more than pretty and likeable.’ Visibly enraptured by this delight in horror, Saint-Saëns indulges in unprecedented orchestral modernity, piling on the dissonances beneath his characters’ cries of rage or despair. He concluded thus: ‘Proserpine is, of all my stage works, the most advanced in the Wagnerian system.’ The least-known, too, and one which it was high time to reveal to the public, in its second version, revised in 1899.

Image SYMPHONIC WINNER 2018:
Symphonies Nos. 1-6 (3 CD)

Martinu has suffered the fate of not enjoying the same popularity and wide appeal like Bedrich Smetana, Antonin Dvorak und Leos Janacek on the podium. This often goes so far that his singular skill is referred to, but that the wealth of his oeuvre in all the salient genres is hardly familiar. For decades, Martinu had shied away from composing a symphony. The first one was finally to be written in the USA in 1942, followed by another one every year until 1946 (the sixth was only added to the work catalogue in 1953). For this reason, there is sometimes talk of the ‘American’ symphonies. The symphonies do mirror the events of the time, but at the same time long passages must be regarded as absolute music.

Tapiola, En Saga & Eight Songs

”Striking performance” (The Guardian)


"Hannu Lintu proves himself a conductor able to explore and embody Sibelius’s sound world with great awareness of its mysteriousness and power; a very impressive release." (Gramophone)

This new release by the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Hannu Lintu is an all-Sibelius programme featuring internationally acclaimed mezzo-soprano Anne Sofie von Otter. The album includes two major tone poems by Jean Sibelius (1865–1957), Tapiola and En Saga, combined with a set of songs orchestrated by Aulis Sallinen (b. 1935) in 2015.

Sibelius’ tone poem Tapiola, written shortly after the 7th Symphony, may be regarded as the culmination of a period that began with the Fifth Symphony, a period where Sibelius created music that grew organically out of tiny germs into huge processes. It was completed in 1926 and remained Sibelius’s last great orchestral work. In Tapiola, Sibelius appears to equate the primacy of nature with the value of art for its own sake, the unattainable truths of which remain uneroded by time or by the shifting ideals of mankind. Sibelius stated to his private secretary: “My inspiration for Tapiola came wholly from nature, or even more accurately from something inexpressible in words.”

Image HISTORICAL WINNER 2018:
Sviatoslav Richter plays Schubert 1949-1963 (10 CD)

The present Edition of Richter’s Schubert interpretations from 1948 to 1964 has some CD premieres to offer, taken from hitherto unreleased live recordings. One is the two movement version of the Piano Sonata no. 6 in E minor D566. The Moscow live recording from 1958 also shows that Richter is one of the very few pianists of note to have played both versions, the other being in three movements. That also applies to the shortened (Urtext) and full (ed. Brahms) versions of Impromptu no. 1 D946 and the largely unknown original version of the third Impromptu of D899 (in G major) and the popular version in G flat. Then there is the never officially published recording of the unfinished Sonata no. 15 D840, nicknamed 'Reliquie' in the mistaken belief that it was Schubert’s last sonata.

Schubert was a true lieder composer, and his piano works too have song-like character. This Edition accordingly includes Sviatoslav Richter 'accompanying' at the piano. The six Schubert songs recorded in 1953 and sung – in Russian – by his lifelong companion, soprano Nina Dorliac, are a genuine rarity. The same CD (no. 9 of this Edition) features another fine example of Richter the great solo artist as a team player, joining composer Benjamin Britten (1913-1976) in the Eight Variations in A flat D813 for piano duet.
