Trios - Released June 18, 2021 | CAvi-music

Hi-Res Booklet
The Feininger Trio, members of the Berliner Philharmoniker, present the first in a new series of albums pairing each of the three piano trios written by Brahms with a work by another Viennese composer: Alexander Zemlinsky, Ernst Krenek, and Erich Wolfgang Korngold, respectively. Brahms’s piano trios are among the genre’s crowning achievements, and the Feininger Trio were interested in exploring how the piano trio genre developed in the master’s wake. As Alexander Zemlinsky put it, young composers attempted to outdo one another by writing in a vein as Brahmsian as possible. Young Zemlinsky knew Brahms and enjoyed the older composer’s support. He was not Brahms’s pupil, but his early Piano Trio, Op. 3 has much in common with Brahms. © CAvi-Music

Alexander Koryakin, winner of the 2019 Jaén Prize International Piano Competition, has selected two perfectly paired masterpieces for his first Naxos recording. Liszt’s Vallée d’Obermann is inspired by his travels in Switzerland, and is a true symphonic poem for piano. Franck’s Piano Quintet in F minor, which Liszt himself found shockingly intense, is a cyclical work of passionate extremes, and a masterpiece of Franco-Belgian repertoire. Also included are Debussy’s L’Isle joyeuse, which offers crystalline brightness, and Jorge Sastre’s Jaenera, "Ecos y temple", with virtuoso expression drawing on a wide range of influences. © Naxos

"This is a splendid fellow and musician" - with this quote Robert Schumann characterized the then 26-year-old Danish composer-colleague Niels Wilhelm Gade in a letter of January 5, 1844 to his Dutch friend Johannes Verhulst. The works on this release are testimonies of three different creative periods of Gade: an early work is the first Sonata in A Major, Op. 6 (dedicated to Clara Schumann) - the second Sonata in D minor, Op. 21, (dedicated to Robert Schumann) was composed in 1850 - the third Sonata in B-flat Major, Op. 59 (dedicated to Wilma Normann-Neruda) belongs to the circle of his late compositions. Among Gade's last works is the collection Volkstänze im nordischen Charakter, Op. 62, written in 1886 for the great violinist Joseph Joachim. © ARS-Produktion

Marcin Hałat, Piotr Lato and Marcin Mączyński undertook here the premiere recording of two Piano Trios by Karol Rathaus: Trio, Op. 53 from 1944 and Trio-Serenade, Op. 69 from 1953. Metaphorically speaking, reading a manuscript is like touching the reality of the composer himself, his thoughts, emotions and events from a world that surrounded him and that he missed. The main idea behind the whole process of being with Karol Rathaus’s Piano Trios, from reading the manuscripts to recording the compositions, is primarily the desire to discover the composer’s aim and read his intentions. The overriding idea was to show the listener the characteristic language of the artist and to create an individual work of art at the level of a piano trio. © DUX Records

Hi-Res Booklet
In the year of “social distancing,” the Mariani Piano Quartet dedicates itself to a today almost forgotten friendship and embarks with Audax Records upon a voyage of discovery in which the piano quartets of Johannes Brahms are juxtaposed with those by Friedrich Gernsheim. Gernsheim, a child prodigy trained at the renowned Leipzig Conservatory, occupied – after a sojourn of several years in Paris, where he experienced the scandal-ridden Tannhäuser performances, and became acquainted with Rossini, Saint-Saëns, and Lalo – important positions in Saarbrücken, Berlin, Cologne, and Rotterdam. Mahler and Strauss held him in high regard and conducted his music. However, after his death his musical legacy fall victim to the anti-Semitic climate in Europe. On the first album of a three-part series, the Mariani Piano Quartet presents Gernsheim’s sensuously indulging C-Minor Quartet alongside the perhaps best-known work of the genre: the Piano Quartet in G Minor, Op. 25, by Brahms with its unbridled energy and symphonic radiance. An intoxicating journey through time into the Romantic period in a captivating interpretation. © Audax Records

It is not written words, but narrative sound worlds that allow the listener to dive into the composer's fantastic world. Like no other, Leoš Janácek understood how to bring a fairy tale (Pohádka) to life in a sound-painting manner. Robert Schumann's musical fairy tale pictures provide deep insights into his soul life. Martinu's highly dramatic First Cello Sonata and the dreamlike Waldesruhe by Antonin Dvorák complete the program. Cellist Mathias Johansen and pianist Andreas Hering take you on a fairy-tale journey of sound. Mathias Johansen has been a professor at the State Conservatory of Vorarlberg in Feldkirch since 2016. He has performed as a soloist with the Lithuanian National Orchestra, as well as the Berliner Philharmoniker. He is in demand as a chamber musician and regularly performs at various festivals. He is a member of the Berolina Ensemble and the Archos Quartet. © ARS-Produktion

In the late 1930s and early '40s, Paul Hindemith composed sonatas for many solo instruments, including some not so often heard. An example of the latter is the Sonata for Althorn, also known as a tenor horn, on this release by the fabulous wind chamber group Les Vents Français. That work exemplifies the virtues of these sonatas. To the casual listener, they may all sound similar with their characteristic quartal harmonies and strict Classical forms, but they are full of small beauties and entirely original ideas. Among these -- but hardly the end of the list -- is the spoken introduction to the finale of the Sonata for Althorn. The other sonatas are for flute, oboe, clarinet, and bassoon, accompanied in all cases by the piano of Eric Le Sage. The flute sonata is a common recital piece, but there are joys in all the pieces, and Les Vents Français continue their uncanny ability to enter quickly and fully into the spirit of unfamiliar music. The quiet lyricism, not at all coolly neo-Classical, of the brief first movement of the Bassoon Sonata in the hands of Gilbert Audin is especially noteworthy. A lovely realization of this key part of Hindemith's career. © TiVo

Gustav Mahler's death left his Tenth Symphony unfinished, consisting only of an unfinished score and several sketches. Ensemble Mini, a radical collective of soloists from Germany's finest orchestras, presents Michelle Castelletti's fascinating recreation of the work - one of the most powerful sound creations ever written - in a version for chamber ensemble. Ensemble Mini is a radical collective of super-sonic-soloists from Germany's top orchestras that repackages super symphonic music for new audiences. Addressing the need to make classical music cool for the 21st century, its mission is to revolutionize the symphonic concert experience through new style, sound and setting whilst never dumbing down. © ARS-Produktion
