❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️
"...den nye indspilning med Danmarks Underholdningsorkester, der er halvt så stort som de fleste i branchen, har et helt anderledes slankt klangideal end det store sus af romantisk symfoni, som Brahms normalt giver. Men det lykkes smukt. Med sans for tempo, skøn balance, høj energi og et helt igennem dramatisk udtryk."

”Man har altid følelsen af at høre en historie blive fortalt i hver af disse satser af de fire Brahms-symfonier. Det er nu op til os lyttere at genfortælle dem. Én ting er sikkert, denne spændende optagelse mangler kun én ting: kedsomhed.”

"Hovedattraktionen på albummet er dog uden sammenligning Sjostakovitjs anden klavertrio, komponeret i slutningen af Anden Verdenskrig. Trio Con Brio har selv udtalt, at værket har fulgt dem i tyve år, og at de har ventet på, at de var klar til at indspille det. Det høres."
- Magasinet Klassisk

"Tunge marmorakkorder brister, og fløjlsmelodier spreder varme i den kulsorte nat. Melankolien tynger Arenskijs Klavertrio nr. 1 i d-mol, men Trio con Brio gennemborer den med en strømlinet elegance. På den anden side hersker følelsesmæssigt kaos i Sjostakovitsjs klavertrio nr. 2 i e-mol: vil denne lethed få dig til at grine? Eller er det allerede galskab, der raser i den fremadstormende virtuositet? Det er dobbeltheden, der får denne udgivelse til at stråle så stærkt."

"Han går meget følsomt til denne blændende og mangefacetterede musik og præsenterer en god blanding af lettere og mere krævende stykker og dermed gør musikken af ?Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach en stor tjeneste." WDR

"Brilliantly brought to life by Marc-André Hamelin … I really enjoyed the way he identifies with the complex demands of the music … Hamelin is the kind of modern pianist with the firepower to make the most of Emanuel Bach’s sudden switches of mood and timbre, and the unexpected endings, often at the most exhilarating speeds. Insightful booklet notes by Mahan Esfahani enhance the whole thing; it’s an effective recording as well"

ganske få at realisere denne vekslen mellem fuldtonet begejstring,
ironisk distance og lystigt kammermusikalsk sammenspil. Det

Men man kan ikke andet end beundre Petrenkos sjældne musikalitet og forrygende dirigenthåndværk.
Politiken 2021 - T. Michelsen

I Petrenkos fortolkning viser det sig gradvist, at det er et værk, man kan være i og se sig omkring i som i en labyrint, man muligvis kommer ud af, men aldrig rigtig vil kunne overskue. POV international - Jakob Brønnum

♥♥♥♥♥
"Aimards indspilning er præcis, storslået, klar og alligevel i besiddelse af den mystiske dybde, der kendetegner al Olivier Messiaens musik og gør selv et hyper-naturalistisk værk som ’Catalogue d’Oiseaux’ til en metafysisk oplevelse"
– Politiken

"A fascinating work, the demands it makes on performer and listener both great but rewarding, is brilliantly explored by a pianist, Pierre-Laurent Aimard, with a deep knowledge by the music of Messiaen"
– Gramophone

Renowned French pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard kicks off his exclusive engagement to PENTATONE with a recording of Olivier Messiaen’s Catalogue d’Oiseaux (1956-1958). The pianist had intimate ties to the composer himself and his wife, Yvonne Loriod, for whom Messiaen wrote the Catalogue. Praised by The Guardian as “one of the best Messiaen interpreters around,“ this is Aimard’s first recording of Messiaen’s most extensive, demanding and colourful piano composition. The luxurious CD box set contains an accompanying bonus DVD, on which Aimard shares his vast knowledge of and love for Messiaen’s work from behind the piano. Due to its radical naturalism, the Catalogue d’Oiseaux is exceptional within the repertoire for solo piano. It is the grand hymn to nature from a man who never ceased to marvel at the stupefying beauty of landscapes or the magic of bird song. With his Catalogue, Messiaen tried – in his own words – “to render exactly the typical birdsong of a region, surrounded by its neighbours from the same habitat, as well as the form of song at different hours of the day and night,” suggesting an almost scientific approach to his subjects. The idea of ‘reproduction’ may have been central to Messiaen’s conception of the Catalogue d’Oiseaux, but in the finished work we hear a great composer at work, a master of innovative structures who finds an astonishing range of piano sonorities. In a world that is increasingly being destructed by man, Aimard views this cycle as “a musical refuge that resonates with an audience ever more concerned, expanded and affected.”

After his acclaimed interpretation of Messiaen’s Catalogue d’Oiseaux, pianist Pierre-Laurent Aimard returns to PENTATONE with a recording of Beethoven’s Hammerklavier Sonata and Eroica Variations. The Hammerklavier Sonata is one of the pinnacles of Beethoven’s creative output, and arguably one of the highest mountains to climb for any pianist. To Aimard, it poses one of the most frightening tests of a performer’s life, but one that is as irresistible as it is insurmountable. The dazzling Eroica Variations are nicknamed after Beethoven’s iconoclastic Third Symphony, and employ the melody he would later use as the main theme of the symphony’s finale. Beethoven’s fondness for this melody is evident, as he also used it in his ballet music for The Creatures of Prometheus, as well as in the seventh of his 12 Contredanses. Widely acclaimed as a key figure in the music of our time and as a uniquely significant interpreter of piano repertoire from every age, Pierre-Laurent Aimard enjoys an internationally celebrated career. He started his exclusive engagement to PENTATONE with a complete recording of Messiaen’s Catalogue d’Oiseaux (2018).

Visions offers Tamara Stefanovich and Pierre-Laurent Aimard’s return to Pentatone, presenting a programme revolving around Messiaen’s intoxicating Visions de l‘amen for two pianos. This centrepiece is surrounded by Enescu’s Carillon nocturne, Knussen’s Prayer Bell Sketch and Clock IV from Birtwistle’s Harrison’s Clocks. The works performed all share a fascination for the sound of bells, and Stefanovich and Aimard invite the listener on a mesmerizing acoustic journey. Tamara Stefanovich is captivating audiences worldwide with a broad repertoire ranging from Bach to contemporary composers, and made her Pentatone debut with the critically-acclaimed album Influences (2019). Widely acclaimed as a key figure in the music of our time and as a uniquely significant interpreter of piano repertoire from every age, Pierre-Laurent Aimard enjoys an internationally celebrated career. His exclusive engagement to Pentatone has led to a complete recording of Messiaen’s Catalogue d’oiseaux (2018) and a recording of Beethoven’s Hammerklavier Sonata and Eroica Variations (2021).
