Chamber Music - To be released September 29, 2017 | PentaTone

Hi-Res Booklet
Acclaimed for their adventurous and wide-ranging recording projects – from Beethoven Sonatas on period instruments to genre-bending arrangements of Radiohead and Arcade Fire – the endlessly inventive duo of cellist Matt Haimovitz and pianist Christopher O’Riley returns to explore music of the Slavic soul. Anchored by the cello sonatas of the iconic triumvirate of Russian composers –Rachmaninoff, Prokofiev, and Shostakovich – and inspired by the subversive irony of Shostakovich’s Sonata, TROIKA also delves into more recently-written, unexpected, and popular works. Whether subtle or blatantly rebellious, each work potently reveals the strength of the artistic voice in the face of political repression in mother Russia. © Pentatone

Trios - To be released September 29, 2017 | Berlin Classics

Hi-Res Booklet
Johannes Brahms’s Horn Trio Op. 40 is without a doubt the best-known work for this formation and also one of the best-known chamber music pieces ever written for horn. Brahms succeeds like virtually no other composer in utilising the tone colours of this instrument. His trio has entrenched this formation in the stock repertoire of any horn player. It is therefore the centrepiece of this release. But what other works were written for horn trio, and was Brahms the first composer to write for this combination of instruments? What Felix Klieser and his friends have found is a repertoire spanning some 100 years, from Frédéric Duvernoy, who wrote his two trios at the start of the 19th century and was still under the influence of Viennese Classicism, to trios by Charles Koechlin (1867-1950) and Robert Kahn, written in the 20th century but still profoundly Romantic in their expression. That being said, Charles Koechlin, Frédéric Duvernoy and Robert Kahn chart intriguing musical terrain, presenting a variety of influences, forms and aspects of interplay between the three instruments. Each of Koechlin’s Quatre petites pièces Op. 32, written by Charles Koechlin between 1896 and 1906, has a distinctive underlying character. The limited compositional œuvre of Frédéric Duvernoy (1765-1838) immediately suggests that the Frenchman, who worked as a horn player at the Paris Opera and as a soloist , wrote music for his own use, notably horn concertos and works for horn and piano, but also three trios for violin, horn and piano, which were written as Trois trios concertants some time after 1820. These pieces are virtuosic, classically elegant and song-like. Serenade op. 73 by Robert Kahn (1865-1951), published in 1923, was clearly inspired by Schumann and even more so by Brahms.

Hi-Res Booklet
Poor Reger! With his pudgy figure and his pouty face, appearances have taken precedence over his music which many consider as pudgy and pouty. Which it is not. Yes, Reger was a firm supporter of absolute music, following the tradition of Beethoven and Brahms whose classical structures he combined with Wagner’s extended harmonies, adding Bach’s counterpoint; some of his works seem dense and complicated. But this is not the case with his chamber music – by the bye, chamber music makes up the biggest part of Reger’s œuvre – which reflects a condensed version of his stylistic development. And in contrast to his almost symphonic string quartets, the String Trios Opp 77b and 141b seem less symbolist-expressive than historistic-classicist. The confident, at times even cheerful (not pudgy and not pouty), character of these works convey the (superficial) impression of simplicity, despite which Reger remained true to his own style, as he explained in a letter where he described the composition as “absolutely not ‘un-Regerian’”. However, the characteristics of this “Regerian” style – dense modulations, surprising metric asymmetries and interesting part writing – are in this case subordinate to the small number of instruments and do not immediately emerge. The composer strove towards a “new simplicity”; in 1904 he wrote: “I know exactly what our music today lacks: a Mozart!” Surely it was also Mozart’s spirit which inspired Reger when he wrote his “miniature chamber music” String Trio Op. 141b in 1915. The same year, the premiere of his Piano Quartet Op. 133 was emphatically celebrated by the critics who praised its “glorious sonorities” and its “vocal, vivid and catchy” melodies. The Op. 77b, String Trio was obviously inspired by Mozart’s Divertimento K563, and the Op. 9 String Trios by Beethoven – as has often been commented upon, Reger frequently enters into an intensive dialogue with historic works of music. Star violinist Franziska Pietsch is joined, in her ensemble Trio Lirico, by a brilliant roster of colleagues, who give life to these highly deserving but neglected works.
