Editor's Choice july 2020
" Deebly reflective playing of these beautiful and emotionally crafted quintets from the ever-impressive Takács Quartet, joined by a perfect partner in pianist Garrick Ohlsson." - Martin Cullingford

Amy Beach’s piano quintet proved a deservedly
popular success in its early years. It makes a
compelling—and surprising—match for Elgar’s
own piano quintet: a late work contemporary with
the cello concerto, and which inhabits the same
emotional landscape.

Image Complete Songs
It's not long into this disc before it becomes evident that Alma Mahler was a very different composer from her famous husband Gustav. Alma studied with Zemlinsky, whose influence (along with that of Hugo Wolf) shows most readily in her work--yet this is Alma's music through and through. Even before Mahler forbade her from composing once they were married, Alma displayed a distinctive voice, one steeped in 19th-century romanticism (her father often sang Schumann lieder) as well as the musical currents of the new century. The first set of Five Songs comes from this early period, and right from the opening "Die stille Stadt" Alma's skill at word setting captivates, as does her ability to recreate in music each poem's unique emotional state. Of the five, "Bei dir ist es traut", with its recurring falling major second, is the only one that sounds remotely close to her husband's style.

After Gustav's death Alma again took up composition, and the following Four Songs reveal a new richness and poignancy in her writing as well as an expanded harmonic palette. "Licht in der Nacht"'s haunting atmosphere lingers after the song has ended, while "Anstrum"'s tonal waywardness displays Alma's awareness of modern musical developments. Alma's last set of Five Songs, published in 1924, is based on spiritual texts, emphasizing both their reverential (Hymne) and mystical (Hymne an die Nacht) themes.

The program concludes with two unpublished songs, "Leise Weht ein erstes Bluhn" and "Kennst du meine Nachte", both composed in a cultivated romantic style that would indicate their belonging to Alma's earlier period. The impact of the music is no doubt enhanced by Jorma Panula's idiomatic and imaginative orchestrations, beautifully rendered by the Tampere Philharmonic. But it's the marvelous singing of Lilli Paasikivi, with her intelligence, penetrating insight, and richly rounded tone that fully captures the spirit of these works and makes them little gems that no Lieder enthusiast can afford to overlook. Ondine's warmly resonant, naturally balanced recording makes this important disc even more welcome. It's a "must-have".

★ ★ ★ ★
"...The title work, to English-language poems by Joseph Brodsky, may be the most powerful; sample its titular first movement (track 11) with its soaring soprano lines for a taste of Grigorjeva's personal adaptation of a Pärt influence. The Lament for recorder, originally recorded for flute, but extremely nifty in this version that makes use of the recorder's distinctive attack, is also unusual. The Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir and Hillier's Theatre of Voices are in fine precise form, and they are ably backed by Ondine's engineering team, working in Tallinn's sonically impressive Niguliste Church. A fine excursion through new choral trends in Eastern Europe."
All Music (April 2016)


"This new album from the Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir reinforces their position as one of the world’s leading vocal ensembles. Paul Hillier directs them through a deeply satisfying survey of music by the Ukrainian-born Estonian composer Galina Grigorjeva (b1962). Stylistically, she follows in the long shadow of Rachmaninov, bracing an essential serenity with the subtlest of richer harmonic tints, while stretching her singers both emotionally as well as in terms of their tessitura (oh, those basses!). She is the mistress of cadential suspense, a modernist who respects the past..."

Image Violin Sonata; Dix Melodies; Piano Trio
This is the first ever album devoted to the chamber music of Helena Munktell, one of the earliest female composers in Sweden. The daughter of an industrialist, Munktell received private lessons in piano and song from an early age, but soon also training in music theory and composition. In 1877 she visited Paris, where two of her sisters lived, and during the next thirty-odd years the city would be a second home to her. Here she studied with composers such as Benjamin Godard and Vincent d’Indy, and became a member of Société Nationale de Musique (SNM), an organization promoting French music and providing opportunities for young composers to have their works performed. A selection of Munktell’s songs had been performed, in Swedish, at a Society concert in 1892 and in 1900 they were heard again, but now in the French versions released the same year by the reputed musical publisher Alphonse Leduc. The Dix Mélodies are finely crafted musical scenes displaying a wide expressive range and variety of moods. Five years later another SNM concert saw the first performance of Munktell’s Violin Sonata in E flat major, by none other than the renowned Romanian violinist George Enescu. Franck’s famous A major Sonata, which Munktell knew well, served as an important source of inspiration in regards to the cyclic form and harmonic writing. The sonata soon appeared in print, now from E. Demets, another French music publisher. The third work on this album is a small-scale piano trio, probably an early work and possibly composed for performance at one of the musical salons at the Munktell family home in Stockholm.

Image Sonnengesang
A profoundly spiritual composer, Sofia Gubaidulina has said that ‘True art for me is always religious, it will always involve collaborating with God.’ As the present disc demonstrates, it is therefore less than fruitful to try to divide her music into sacred and secular compositions. Jauchzt vor Gott, the opening work, is here being released on disc for the first time. The nine-minute piece for choir and organ sets three verses from Psalm 66 , and opens with a long cappella section on the word jauchzt, ‘rejoice’. At this point, the organ enters with an extensive solo involving a massive dynamic intensification, after which choir and organ continue together in music which makes the concept of contrast a determining element. As the title signals, the organ work Hell und dunkel (Light and Darkness) also explores contrasts, especially in terms of colour and brightness. Composed in 1976, the work is the earliest on this disc, and it is followed by the large-scale Sonnengesang, written some twenty years later and dedicated to Mstislav Rostropovich. The choir sings the words of St Francis of Assisi’s celebrated Canticle of the Sun, but it is the solo cello that is responsible for interpreting the meaning of the text. The all-important solo part is here performed by Ivan Monighetti, in dialogue with the eminent NDR Chor of the North German Radio, and with the support of two percussionists from Elbtonal Percussion. Philipp Ahmann conducts this work as well as Jauchzt vor Gott, with Christian Schmitt performing the organ parts.

"A CD of contrasts: relentless percussive writing contrasts with beautiful, uncanny stillness. Moore gives both extremes her all."
BBC Music Magazine


As Pulitzer-winning composer and Bang on a Can co-founder David Lang reveals in the album’s liner notes, the project takes its name from the opening piece by another Pultizer winner, John Luther Adams. “John’s music is ruggedly elemental,” Lang writes, “using very restrained materials as a way of probing some of our most fundamental human truths. Who we are. Where we are. How we relate to each other. How we relate to the natural world. His pieces are stark explorations of humankind in its most elemental state, and this CD brings together, for the first time, his complete acoustic music for solo piano.”

Among other firsts, the disc includes two works for piano by Julia Wolfe (2015’s Pulitzer winner!), as well as newly recorded pieces by Martin Bresnick, Missy Mazzoli and Kate Moore. By turns meditative, mysterious, tumultuous and tender, The Stone People presents Lisa Moore at the height of her transformative powers.

The music of the Danish composer Hanne Ørvad (b. 1945) is a source of extraordinary listening experiences. In quite undogmatic ways her choral music gives space, sound, colour and life to the words of highly varied poetic texts. This CD presents five of Ørvad's most important choral works, from her very first composition Winter Organ (1991) to one of the most recent, Threna from 2003.

Image Symphony No. 2; Simply Largo
Symphonic thought is at the heart of Elisabetta Brusa’s oeuvre, whether in larger forms or solo instrumental works. As with the composer’s Symphony No. 1 (8.573437), the Symphony No. 2 follows a Classical four-movement form with harmonies that are essentially tonal and richly colored. Emotions are vivid and the rhythms are punchy and passionate whether in fanfare figures or in the beautiful solemnity of the slow movement. Simply Largo is a short ‘song without words’ with a seamless melodic clarity that reflects Brusa’s power to summon up great expressive depth.

Image Paradis Sur Terre: A French Songbook
Nicky Spence, tenor
Malcolm Martineau, piano

Young Singer of the Year at the 2015 Opera Awards, Nicky Spence joins the highly praised accompanist Malcolm Martineau, just honoured with an OBE, in this unique collection of French songs from the turn of the last century, a repertoire that was very rarely performed in public at that time, the concept of the song recital still in the future.

But private salons offered room for noticeable stylistic experiment, as we can tell from the striking advances which Debussy displayed in the songs he composed within the first ten years of his career. The Verlaine settings recorded here may have been sung in the house of his wealthy friend Ernest Chausson, also a composer, and they were admired for the novelty of their musical language.

Both Lili Boulanger and André Caplet would class themselves as disciples of Debussy, borrowing his enriched harmonic vocabulary and adventurous piano style to write songs that are essentially beyond the range of the amateur. Cécile Chaminade, meanwhile, found a fluent style that owes more to Gounod and Saint-Saëns. She was fully at home and celebrated in the salon world, as both composer and pianist.

Image Opera omnia per chitarra (2CD)
The project of the musicologist Nicoletta Confalone and of the guitarist Federica Artuso is aimed at the discovery of Emilia Giuliani, illegitimate daughter of the famous Mauro Giuliani that, with his guitar and his compositions, conquered Vienna, the capital of 19th century music. Emilia lived her entire life in a continuous state of difficulty and discomfort, dying of typhus at the age of only thirty- seven. The adverse events of her life and her condition as a woman (considering that in her days it was almost impossible to express her talent as an artist) did not prevent her from reaping flattering successes from audiences and critics in the many European stages of her unfortunately short life: suffice for all the quotation of some Viennese critics who, after a concert she shared with Franz Liszt, exclaimed with admiration: "Every finger, one Liszt!”. In addition to her amazing skills as an instrumentalist, she was also appreciated for her music that she managed to publish with the major publishers of the time: Giovanni Ricordi in Milan and Artaria in Vienna. This double album includes her complete work for guitar, for the first time on an historic instrument, a 1830 René Lacote.

"...Det är tuff och angelägen musik, absolut personlig och kompromisslös..."
(Östgöta Correspondenten)

Karin Rehnqvists musik har beskrivits som "samtidigt både radikalt ny och väldigt gammal". Detta beror på att hon dels är intresserad av modernistisk musik av t ex Brian Ferneyhough (för vilken hon har studerat) och dels svensk folkmusik. På denna CD med musik av Karin Rehnqvist ingår bl a den fina klarinettkonserten där Martin Fröst är solist.

Image Stories – Trumpet Concertos
Alongside his celebrated performances of the classical repertory, Hakan Hardenberger is also renowned as a pioneer of significant new trumpet works. The three works on this disc were all composed with him in mind, and illustrate his many-facetted musical persona. The most recent of them, ‘True Stories’ by Betsy Jolas, was written in order to give Hardenberger and Roger Muraro occasion to perform together. Its title springs from the fact that the work forms the composer’s first attempt to work with sounds selected from daily life and either ‘tamed’ through stylization or left quasi crude. Sally Beamish found inspiration for her concerto in Italo Calvino’s book Invisible Cities which, in her own words, ‘reflects aspects of city life: the organised architecture but seeming randomness; the sparkling though shabby beauty, in contrast to the dark, sordid underbelly – rusting pipes, waste, squalor.’ Finally, in …miramondo multiplo…, Olga Neuwirth incorporates stylistic and melodic references, for instance from her own works and the music of Handel, but also to the performance style of the jazz trumpeter Miles Davis, lending each movement a musical atmosphere of its own. As a result, the concerto has been described as ‘a sequence of five very different musical stories’. The conductor in all three works is Martyn Brabbins, whose credentials in the field of contemporary music are impressive, having conducted hundreds of world premieres across the globe.

Image True Fire; Ciel d'hiver; Trans
Kaija Saariaho (b. 1952) is among the most prominent names in contemporary music scene today. This new album by the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra conducted by Hannu Lintu includes world première recordings of three works by Saariaho featuring bass-baritone Gerald Finley and harpist Xavier de Maistre as soloists. True Fire is a six-movement song cycle that was written to a commission from the Los Angeles Philharmonic, the NDR Symphony Orchestra, the BBC Symphony Orchestra and the Orchestre National de France, for baritone Gerald Finley with an original idea to explore the scope of the baritone voice. The texts conclusively determined what the vocal expression would be like and how the details in the musical material would shape up. The disparate texts chosen by Saariaho in fact have a common underlying theme: the status of humankind surrounded by nature, our observations of it and our belonging to it. Saariaho’s orchestral triptych Orion (2002) is one of her most performed works. Orion as a celestial phenomenon is showcased in the middle movement, Winter Sky.

Mikhail Shestakov, Violin • Moscow Tchaikovsky SO • Patrick Baton

The highly romantic music of Alla Pavlova, a Russian composer now resident in the USA, has been praised for its 'surreal serenity...woven with unflinching sadness, without concessions to short attention spans and all within the long émigré tradition of nostalgia for homeland' (MusicWeb) and its 'integrity and good old-fashioned craft' (Fanfare on Sulamith - 8.557674). These traits are amply evident in her highly emotional Symphony No. 6, inspired by Vincent van Gogh's famous painting The Starry Night and dedicated to the tormented artist, and the delightful suite from her ballet Thumbelina, based on Hans Christian Andersen's fairy tale.

- Nearly all of her five hundred or so compositions remained unpublished during her lifetime, despite their undeniable beauty, lyricism and passion.

- This volume of piano music spans almost her entire adult life, from youthful experiments to music written less than a year before her untimely death, giving the listener a whirlwind tour of a much underrated composer.

New orchestral works byLotta Wennäkoski (b. 1970). Wennäkoski's works are characterised by a rich and colourful sound world that often incorporates unconventional playing techniques and noise. In recent years her range of expression has become gradually broader, deeper and more powerful.

Soie is a concertante work commissioned by the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra for flute and orchestra in three movements and placed on the list of recommended works at the UNESCO International Rostrum of Composers. The soloist of the work is Kersten McCall, the principal flutist of the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra. Hava is an orchestral piece commissioned by the Tapiola Sinfonietta and premiered at the orchestra's 20th anniversary concert in January 2008. Amor Omnia is a silent film score of 90 minutes' length and Wennäkoski's most extensive work to date. In 2014, Wennäkoski adapted a concert suite from her film score, the Amor Omnia Suite.
