Image Roméo et Juliette
Robin Ticciat's deserved reputation as one fo the great Berliozian's of our age is evident on this recording, his second, with the award-winning Swedish Radio Symphony. Romeo et Juliette was considered a pinnacle of French Romanticism and a brilliant example of Berlioz's orchestral mastery. The piece is one of the most original conceptions of the 19th century - deftly poised between symphony and stage drama. Robin Ticciati fully communicates the range of Berlioz's imagination; he brings an innate understanding of the romanticism of the music and succeeds in delivering a performance that is brimming with color.

Innovative instrumentation, unusual repertoire and an ensemble with a profound knowledge of historical performance practice makes this Irish Baroque Orchestra Linn debut unmissable.

This programme of 18th century concertos is an attractive listening tour through the German courts, revealing unknown jewels.

The soloists, including Lisa Beznosiuk (OAE), Andreas Helm (Concentus Musicus Wien), Monica Huggett (Sonnerie) and Peter Whelan (Ensemble Marsyas) relish the opportunity to show off their skills.

Alongside the double cello concerto by Vivaldi and Telemann’s concerto for two violins and bassoon sit the lesser known, but equally brilliant, concertos by Graupner, Heinichen and Fasch.

One of the most beautiful combinations is the Graupner Triple Concerto for oboe d’amore, viola d’amore and flute d’amore, which produces an exquisite blend of other-worldly colours.

Wonderfully kaleidoscopic colours also pervade the concertos by Heinichen and Fasch, the latter proving just why Telemann and Bach held him in such high esteem.

Scottish Opera / Richard Egarr

Richard Egarr conducts the Scottish Opera in Gilbert and Sullivan’s much-loved nautical comic opera: HMS Pinafore. Performed and recorded live at the 2015 Edinburgh International Festival to a sold out audience, the story unfolds with additional narration from comic actor and broadcaster Tim Brooke-Taylor. Heading up a cast that reads like a ‘who’s who’ of the opera world is John Mark Ainsley, Elizabeth Watts and Toby Spence.

The well-crafted, yet light-hearted story unfolds on the HMS Pinafore as Josephine, the captain’s daughter, falls in love with a lowly sailor (Ralph Rackstraw) despite arrangements by her father to marry Sir Joseph Porter. Sir Joseph is a perfect caricature of Britain’s class system of the day – a pompous and splendidly incompetent man. Nevertheless, this likeable character decrees his liberal views and inadvertently encourages a couple in love to reject social conventions and elope. A tale of British silliness, filled with British humour, ends happily for all characters.

Egarr applies his extensive knowledge of period performance practice to recreate the sound and style typical of the late nineteenth century, a first for a Gilbert and Sullivan recording. HMS Pinafore is rich in comic burlesque, sending

up theatrical and operatic conventions and parodying the Italian opera of the day. The tongue-in-cheek writing is apparent from the opening chorus and the music is equally rich in comic pastiche and styles; ‘For he is an Englishman’ is one of the greatest master strokes.

Climb aboard the HMS Pinafore for a hugely fun seafaring romp!

Magnificat / Philip Cave

Magnificat's 25th anniversary recording, Scattered Ashes, features contrasting and parallel works of great passion inspired by the meditations of the infamous Dominican friar Girolamo Savonarola.

These Latin settings by eight great vocal composers of the 16th century display a variety of scoring, textures and harmonic language that is mirrored in their intensity and attention to detail.

Josquin's Miserere, referred to as 'epic', 'massive', 'courageous' and 'bold' with similarities in stature and significance frequently drawn between the music of Josquin and Beethoven, opens the programme.

Josquin's musical architecture, and his sensitivity to the text, combine to produce a work of astonishing delicacy, with kaleidoscopic twists and turns, rich and subtle use of texture and variety exploiting and illustrating the text with a heartfelt empathy.

Both challenging and thrilling to sing, Josquin's Miserere perfectly demonstrates why Magnificat's world-class reputation for clarity, flawless intonation and purity of tone is second to none.

Royal Academy of Music Soloists Ensemble / Trevor Pinnock

For over four decades Pinnock’s name has been virtually synonymous with the early-music movement and, with a critically acclaimed Deutsche Grammophon discography of almost all the composer’s orchestral works, Mozart.

He inspires fantastically insightful performances of two favourites by two Classical masters performed here on modern instruments with the very best of the next generation of wind players: the Royal Academy of Music Soloists Ensemble.

The ‘Gran Partita’ is Mozart’s largest and arguably his most innovative instrumental work; it demonstrates the sensitivity of the colours of wind instruments in a score of unsurpassed variety.

The driving principles are sonority, colour, texture, concertante effects, the juxtaposition of contrasting styles, and the mutability of musical ideas.

Pinnock brings his wealth of experience to his first recording of the composer’s great wind masterpiece.

The nocturnes of Mozart’s mentor Haydn magnificently blend the timbres of strings and woodwind with unerring dramatic instinct.

The work has all the scintillating argumentativeness and wit that one might expect of mature Haydn, whilst the central Adagio is sublime.

"...If it has to be strings only, it could hardly be better done, and certainly not better played or recorded that is the case here."
Gramophone Arnold Whittall (august 2016)

Fusing French and Japanese influences, SE’s new recording features works by Takemitsu and Debussy, two composers who share an instinctive feeling for instrumental colour and sensuous textures. SE’s reputation for excellent string arrangements (established with important commissions from the late Rudolph Barshai) continues with Jonathan Morton’s arrangement of Debussy’s String Quartet. The variety of string techniques and the wide palette of instrumental colours Debussy employed are all enhanced by the larger string ensemble, particularly in the sumptuously beautiful slow movement. In addition, the attractively lyrical Girl with the Flaxen Hair has been orchestrated for string ensemble and two harps by Colin Matthews. Takemitsu’s contribution to the string orchestra repertoire includes two contrasting film scores inspired by the French Impressionists. Finishing the album is Takemitsu’s hauntingly melancholic Nostalghia, with a heartfelt solo violin melody by Jonathan Morton. SE combines the intimacy and unity of a string quartet with the force and power of an ensemble in this unique and beautiful recording.

Following the success of performances and recordings of Webers Wind Concertos with SCO principals as soloists, the SCO Wind Soloists that feature on this album have since 2012 started to explore Harmoniemusik repertoire. Inspired by the legacy of the great Mozartian conductors of the SCO including Sir Charles Mackerras, the Wind Soloists make a fine contribution to the SCOs distinguished Mozart discography. This new recording includes four of the five Tafelmusik sextets for pairs of clarinets, horns and bassoons, together with the Serenade in E flat major, the first of Mozarts three great wind serenades. The Serenade in E flat major has many unusual features. Its opening fanfare - a series of repeated chords on the tonic in E flat - immediately catches the ear. The fact that Mozart avoids fatiguing the listener with a surfeit of the same sonorities, in music with a necessarily limited dynamic and instrumental range, bears eloquent testimony to his genius. This recording captures the wealth of detail in Mozarts Divertimenti; there is something in each of them for every music lover. Comprising pairs of clarinet, bassoons and natural horns, the players are dedicated to performing each work in a stylish and informed way, from the masterpieces of Mozart, Beethoven and Weber to twentieth-century works and contemporary commissions. The SCO Wind Soloists are: Maximiliano Martín clarinet, William Stafford clarinet, Peter Whelan bassoon, Alison Green bassoon, Alec Frank-Gemmill horn, Harry Johnstone horn. The SCO Wind Soloists have appeared in chamber concerts throughout Scotland. They have also performed at the Palace of Holyroodhouse in the presence of HRH The Prince Charles.

John Mark Ainsley, tenor
Malcolm Martineau, piano

John Mark Ainsley's cleverly constructed recital highlights the personal and musical connections of four of the twentieth century's best song writers: Britten, Poulenc, Heggie and Berkeley.

The breadth of repertoire showcases Ainsley's range, expansive vocal colour, expressive voice and exceptional understanding of text. Accompanying Ainsley is Malcolm Martineau, to whom Heggie's Friendly Persuasions is dedicated. The American composer pays homage to Poulenc with four imaginative songs, each of which recreates in miniature a transformative friendship in Poulenc's life.

In 2008 Ainsley and Martineau gave the world premiere performance of Friendly Persuasions at Wigmore Hall, London.

The recital also includes three works by Poulenc: Fancy, Bleuet and Tel jour telle nuit, a beautifully conceived and shaped cycle; considered Poulenc's greatest vocal work it is reminiscent of the great cycles of a century earlier such as Winterreise or Dichterliebe.

Despite French heritage and fluency in the language Berkeley's friendship with Britten led him to set verse by the English poet, W.H. Auden instead. His Five Poems are some of the best of their kind; a cohesive and satisfying collection, Berkeley perfectly captures both the fanciful and reflective elements of Auden's poetry.

Auden in turn re-introduced Britten to the works of John Donne, which Britten went on to set in his Holy Sonnets; darkly moving and highly demanding, they are among his finest work.

James Gilchrist's latest recording for Linn encompasses three of the greatest examples of the song cycle genre. Moving away from English song into the core Germanic Lieder repertoire,James's expressive tenor voice is ideally suited to showcase the emotional nuances of Schumann s vocal writing.

Liederkreis shows Schumann at his most lyrical and deeply romantic; incredibly Op.24 was his first published vocal composition. Dichterliebe,Schumann's best-known song cycle, is regarded as one of the finest in the German language, notable for its perfect pairing of Heinrich Heine's poetry with Schumann's music.

A prolific and versatile recitalist James has frequently performed Lieder repertoire, most recently Schubert's Schwanengesang and Beethoven's An die Ferne Geliebte at Wigmore Hall. James will return to Wigmore Hall in January 2016, to begin a three-concert recital series spanning two years, performing the Schumann song cycles Liederkreis and Dichterliebe.

James Gilchrist has appeared with many of the world's most prestigious ensembles and under several leading conductors at venues including Wigmore Hall, Snape Maltings and Perth Concert Hall. James is sought after for operatic roles, ensemble performances and as a respected recitalist. On both concert platform and operatic stage, his repertory ranges from Monteverdi to new commissions, and he has appeared with, among others, the Sixteen, the Academy of Ancient Music, the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra and English National Opera. James has previously recorded works by Gerald Finzi, Ralph Vaughan Williams Kenneth Leighton, Ivor Gurney, Arthur Bliss and Peter Warlock and has uncovered the beautiful songs of Muriel Herbert.

Sivan Magen, harp

For his second recital harpist Sivan Magen performs some of the greatest French masterpieces written for harp at the turn of the last two centuries.

Since the 1900s French composers have advanced the harp to new levels of virtuosity and expression, with growing technical demands.

Caplet's Divertissements features some of the most unique and perfectly executed writing in the harp's entire literature; great technical poise is required to deliver the bold pedal glissandi.

Tournier and Debussy established the harp as a crucial exponent of the dreamy impressionist style; its colours and sonority are key.

A century later Mantovani utilises a breath-taking spectrum of attacks and techniques: furious scalic motives, nail sounds, bisbigliandi, and sudden, shrill fortes which makes Tocar a testament to the harp's more virile characteristics.

Schoeller's Esstal is in sharp contrast; its delicate figurations create a more peaceful mood and demonstrate another side to this versatile instrument.

The programme closes with Fauré's Impromptu which makes use of harmonics, glissandi, cross fingerings and rich arpeggios.

Praised by the press as 'a magician' (New York's WQXR), whose 'virtuoso playing conjures an astonishing range of colour and dynamic' (The Daily Telegraph), Sivan Magen is the only Israeli to have ever won the prestigious International Harp Contest in Israel.

Magen also won the Pro Musicis International Award in New York and the Borletti-Buitoni Trust's 2012 Award for exceptional young musicians.

Magen has given solo recitals in New York, London and Amsterdam; his chamber music commitments have taken him to Paris and New York, as well as several International Chamber Music festivals.

Sivan Magen's Britten recital was listed in the New York Times' 'Best Recordings of 2012', whilst his Linn debut Fantasian was awarded five stars by BBC Music Magazine.

'...Magen uses every means at his disposal to create a compelling emotional narrative that draws the ear irresistibly on.' (BBC Music Magazine)

'Magen seems destined to be the Zabaleta de nos jours, with a paintbox of colours allied to fabulous dexterity and nuanced phrasing.'

'Sivan Magen is a dazzlingly virtuosic musician and in this recital disc has set out to show the flexibility of his instrument.'

Famed for his clarity of line and purity of tone, Gottlieb Wallisch moves from Mozart to his contemporary Haydn for his fourth recording with Linn.

Haydn's famous London Sonatas can be viewed as the distillation of the composer's entire sonata-writing experience; Gottlieb perfectly captures his characteristic humour, energy and spiritedness.

Sonata No. 60 was written for an instrument of greater tonal range than the Viennese instruments of the day, with a wider palette of specified dynamic possibilities and pedal effects.

With a striking two-movement format, asymmetrical phrases and unusual accents Sonata No. 61 was ahead of its time, breaking the limits of traditional sonata form.

Often described as a symphony for the piano, Sonata No. 62 has frequently been praised as Haydn's 'opus summum' due to its large-scale form, diversity of expression and its virtuoso requirements.

Image Il Ritorno d'Ulisse in Patria
Il ritorno'd Ulisse is unquestionably one of the three pillars that place Monteverdi among the greatest of opera composers; this recording marks the premiere of a new performing version by Martin Pearlman.Portuguese tenor and baroque specialist Fernando Guimarães stars in the title role,alongside the internationally renowned mezzo-soprano Jennifer Rivera as his loving wife Penelope.Il ritorno'd Ulisse was a relatively recent discovery, but following its authentication in the 1950s and revivals in Vienna and Glyndebourne, the opera has enjoyed new found popularity.Martin Pearlman's new performing version benefits from the same attention to detail that has ensured his reputation as a leading champion of period performance. His highly considered approach to all aspects of the score and performance ensure this version is true to Monteverdi's original vision.With a libretto drawing from Homer's Odyssey, Il ritorno'd Ulisse is a riveting human drama with an enviable cast including: Abigail Nims (Melanto), Daniel Auchincloss (Eumaeus), Sonja DuToit Tengblad (Juno), Ulysses Thomas (Antinous), and Marc Molomot (Irus).

Image The Neoclassical Trumpet
The Neoclassical Trumpet sees Jonathan Freeman-Attwood address the question:what if the chromatic trumpet and the modern Steinway Grand had existed a good century or so earlier and composers had recognised their duo potential?With new arrangements by pianist Daniel-Ben Pienaar, Freeman-Attwood successfully re-imagines works by Stravinsky, Leigh, Fauré and Respighi.Each of the composers represented here wrote significant parts for the trumpet in various chamber and orchestral contexts. The only original solo trumpet piece by any of these composers is Martin's Sonatine.Stravinsky's Pulcinella inspired a variety of duo solutions in the decade or so after its premiere,the most famous being the Suite italienne (initially for cello, but more famously for violin), but this is the first for trumpet. The main differences with this present version, is that all the movements from the Pulcinella Suite are incorporated to form a sizeable new recital piece.As a trumpet player and recording artist, Jonathan has attracted plaudits from the press; his producing career has resulted in over 200 albums and several awards including eight Gramophone Awards.Jonathan broadcasts regularly for BBC Radio 3 and is in demand as an essayist for EMI, Warner, Deutsche Grammophon and other major record labels.Daniel-Ben Pienaar is active as a recitalist and chamber musician. He has received great acclaim for his interpretations of Bach's keyboard music: Pienaar produces a breathless, highly energised reading Gramophone on his Goldberg Variations.

Image The Tudors At Prayer
Continuing its exploration of Tudor Latin sacred music, 'The Tudors At Prayer' sees Magnificat perform music by Taverner, Tallis, Mundy, White and Byrd.

The highlight is Mundy's towering Vox Patris caelestis; immensely vivid and colourful this is a powerful performance to challenge any that has gone before. Equally enthralling as Magnificat's critically acclaimed Spem in alium, but with even richer textures, Vox Patris caelestis perfectly demonstrates Magnificat's heaven-sent sound.

Byrd's heartfelt setting of Tribue, Domine plus a premiere recording of White's Tota pulchra es, and his sublime psalm setting Domine, quis habitabit are further stand-out moments.

The Tudors At Prayer' provides further evidence of the extraordinary richness of this centuries old repertoire.

Magnificat is one of the world's premier vocal ensembles whose recordings have met with huge critical acclaim: Spem in alium was hailed as 'quite the best performance of Tallis's 40-part Spem in alium that I have heard' by Gramophone and was 'First Choice' in Building A Library on BBC Radio 3's CD Review. In addition Victoria's Officium Defunctorum was named 'Critics' Choice' by Gramophone and chosen by The Rough Guide as one of its '100 Essential Classical CDs'.

Directed by Philip Cave, Magnificat specialises in the restoration and performance of neglected choral masterpieces of the 16th and 17th centuries.

In association with Linn Records, Magnificat has undertaken many highly successful recording projects of music from 'The Golden Age', including works by Gesualdo, Guerrero, des Prez, Rebelo, Victoria, Allegri, Tallis and Da Palestrina, as well as Latin sacred music by Robert Parsons, Robert White and William Byrd and two recordings to commemorate the 450th anniversary of composer Philippe Rogier.

Image Bach Reimagines Bach
Product info William Carter’s exemplary musicianship is showcased to its fullest on this new recording of Bach’s own transcriptions for the lute. Almost unplayable in parts many musicians take certain liberties with the music so that it flows more naturally, but Carter’s determined approach to authenticity sees the lutenist achieve the near impossible: playing the music as it was originally written. Carter very subtly enhances BWV 1001, originally for unaccompanied violin, in keeping with Bach’s own perceived style, namely to only add ‘as much harmony as he found necessary’. Bach’s own mild refashioning of BWV 1006, originally a Partita for solo violin, allows Carter to highlight the relaxed and intimate nature of the music. The final piece undergoes the most extensive reimagining as Bach expertly transforms the Fifth Cello Suite into a ‘new’ lute work; so successful is it that Carter considers it to be, in terms of understanding the essential nature and expressive qualities of the lute, ‘the most perfect piece of lute music in existence’. Artist info A founding-member of the Palladian Ensemble, Carter has a deserved reputation as one of the finest exponents of classical guitar and lute. He is well known as a regular performer at Early Music Festivals with critically acclaimed performances as an orchestral player, chamber musician and soloist. Carter is principal lutenist of The Academy of Ancient Music and The English Concert with whom he has appeared on numerous recordings. Carter’s Linn discography has been widely praised: La Guitarre Royalle was named in Gramophone’s ‘Critics’ Choice’ end of year list, he has been awarded Gramophone’s ‘Editor’s Choice’ accolade twice: for La Guitarra Española and Sor: Early Works, whilst his most recent recording for Linn, Le Calme, was awarded an Opus d’Or.
