Hi-Res Booklet
By joining forces in a violin and piano duo, Fanny Robilliard and Paloma Kouider succeed in expressing perfect harmony between their two personalities, much like they had done as chamber musicians in Trio Karénine. Conceived with subtle tastes tinted with originality, their 2017 debut album features the very best sonatas of Debussy and Reval. The album sheds a new light on their works without debasing them and provides us with an alternative outlook on the masterpieces of these two giants of French music from the early nineteenth century.In the midst of the First World War, a sickened and diminished Debussy demonstrated his ‘Frenchness’ by composing his Sonata for violin and piano. The sonata paid homage to the 18th century through exhibiting the composer’s fantastic and imaginative side while communicating a sense of intense modernity, void of parody or pastiche. Weary of the classical reputation attributed to him, Ravel composed his Sonata for violin and piano (n°2) in the 1920s under the influence of the jazz that he had discovered in New York in the company of George Gershwin. Enamoured by classical culture, Karol Szymanowski conceived at the same time her three Mythes poems, a kind of sonata in disguise inspired by ambiant impressionism. On a completely different note, Reynaldo Hahn’s Nocturne works to skilfully weave together feeling of Antiquity and “American” modernity. © François Hudry/Qobuz

“I think in terms of the instruments themselves – I sort of creep into their souls” said Carl Nielsen (1865–1931). His three solo concertos for violin, flute, and clarinet are highly characteristic and expressive works that show how Nielsen developed as a composer, increasingly distancing himself from the classical conventions. This new recording by the New York Philharmonic and Alan Gilbert concludes the acclaimed Nielsen Project with Nikolaj Znaider, Robert Langevin, and Anthony McGill as soloists in vivid live performances from Avery Fisher Hall at Lincoln Center. © DaCapo

Hi-Res Booklet
The scores of composer Michael Fine are born from his improvisations on the piano and are nourished by his travels and his readings: his music derives from a poetic imagination and carries therefore lots of visual evocations. From Korea and its palaces (At the Gate) to Scotland and the writer Alexander McCall Smith (Brother Fox), the world and its landscapes pass by over the seasons (Seasonal Rites) as you listen to it. A sound immersion all the more successful that Michael Fine is also a Grammy-winning producer for his expertise in sound recording. What’s more, as himself a performer, Michael Fine has written music for musicians. And this recording is the faithful testimony of a collective adventure where musicians share their pleasure to play and then offer it to the public. © Evidence

Some years before the release of his Incantation, in which a number of colleagues from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra joined him to champion the great works of French violin music, the debut album from violinist Virgil Boutellis-Taft, under the label Evidence, offered a somewhat bizarre journey merging well-known works from the repertoire of chamber music like the Sonatas of Janáček and Claude Debussy and even Chausson’s Poème. But what’s immediately interesting here are the unusual works of Komitas, André Hossein and even Philippe Hersant, who has few recordings to his name. Pianist Guillaume Vincent acts an attentive partner who proves his musicality here and talents as a chamber musician. © Qobuz

Pentatone present the final volume of Philippe Herreweghe’s Beethoven series. At the helm of the Royal Flemish Philharmonic, the conductor offers Beethoven’s Symphonies n° 4 and 7 with the same mastery that was present in the first volumes. Out of iron discipline and religious respect for the text arises a fresh sense of freedom and regeneration. © Qobuz

At the helm of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Strasbourg from 2004 to 2011, German conductor Marc Albrecht has chosen three French compositions inspired by literature. As a prelude, and nod towards the conductor’s roots, is Goethe and his famous popular poème Der Zauberlehrling (“The Sorcerer’s Apprentice”) which through the music of Dukas and the Walt Disney film was popularised among thousands of children. Evoking a similar degree of childhood nostalgia, is Ravel’s musical adaption of Charles Perrault’s Les Contes de ma mère l’Oye (The Tales of Mother Goose), which enables him to exhibit all his orchestral magic and love for lost worlds. But the attraction of this offering lies mainly in the immense symphonic epic that is The Jungle Book, after the novel by Rudyard Kipling: the great Alsatian composer Charles Koechlin is a real mystery in musical history as his strength and originality remains completely underrated as he easily ranks among the greats. © François Hudry/Qobuz

Ars Nova Copenhagen and Paul Hillier here present the third recording in their critically acclaimed series devoted to the narrative works (Historia) of Heinrich Schütz (1585-1672). The Danish vocal ensemble thus celebrate Denmark's proud connection with this German masterwho was appointed Kapellmeister to King Christian IV and worked at the Danish court for two periods over the course of eleven years. The cover illustrations show reliefs in beaten metal by Karl Schmidt-Rottluff (1884-1976), a member of the Die Brücke group founded in 1905 in Dresden - a city with which Schütz himself was closely associated. © DaCapo

In the 2000s, Philippe Herreweghe recorded for the label Pentatone the entirety of Beethoven’s symphonies with the Royal Flemish Philharmonic under the senior artistic direction of Andreas Neubronner at Tritonus studios. Recorded in Anvers, Belgium in October 2009, this last section calls on several vocal soloists for the finale (Christiane Oelze, Ingeborg Danz and David Wilson-Johnson) with whom the Flemish conductor had collaborated regularly for some years starting with Bach’s cantatas. What we are presented with here is a kind of intimate Beethoven, this Beethoven remains generally calm, despite the occasional unconventional streak (but less so than with Brüggen or Gardiner), particularly light textures (Adagio molto e cantabile), and lively phrases. With Philippe Herrewegh, Beethoven never leaves the 18th century and the dancing spirit he works into his interpretation (Finale, notably the introduction) weaves in the watermarks of close links to composers from previous generations. © Qobuz

Among his work on the exploration of 17th century German music, Paul Hillier has composed this magnificent monograph dedicated to Dietrich Buxtehude. His ensemble named Theatre of Voices, which he founded in 1990 in California, is composed of six singers (two sopranos, a countertenor, two tenors, and a bass) who come together into this theatrical and painful universe with delight. They are joined by the instruments of the TOV Band and Danish organist Bine Bryndorf; the young and flamboyant musician gives us a striking demonstration of the “stylus phantasticus” that is particular to the composer’s organ writing, contrasting, with an almost “rhapsodic” essence, incredibly inventive, like that which very much influenced a young Johann Sebastian Bach. An ideal and thrilling panorama of Dietrich Buxtehude’s religious vocal works. Not to be missed. © Qobuz

Booklet
After his collection of nine Beethoven symphonies, conductor Philippe Herreweghe tasked himself with a collection of Schubert’s. Released under Pentatone are symphonies n° 6, 8 (incomplete) and 9 (the “Great”). The rest were released under Herreweghe’s label, Phi, in 2015 and 2017. Schubert’s universe, from the early symphonies heavy with the spirit of Haydn and Mozart to the vast pantheistic scores that make up the final two 8th and 9th, certainly suit Herreweghe better than Beethoven. The spirit of the lied which continues to live within Schubert’s orchestra inspires the conductor with most natural phrasing. The architecture is rolled out with great suppleness, and in the eighth, the conductor creates a particularly sombre palette, in a “molten” and silky style that evokes primarily Bruckner, who’s work the conductor is familiar with. An interpretation to rediscover, rich and passionate. © Qobuz

The Great War was marked by real religious sentiment across all belligerent countries. Commémoration fraternelle, Alexandre Kastalsky’s (1856-1926) great oratorio written in memory of Russian soldiers and their allies who fell on the battlefield is an emblematic illustration of this phenomenon. In echo are three organ pieces written by composers, belonging to opposing nations, that reinforce the ardent message put forward by Kastalsky. Striking music like that of Commération fraternelle is rare, it’s hair-raising music that will draw you in with the beauty of its harmonies, so simple yet teaming with expression. The ensemble of interpreting musicians, under the direction of conductor Vladimir Degtiarec, is particularly invested. © Qobuz

Hi-Res Booklet Onderscheidingen 5 de Diapason - Gramophone Record of the Month
This is the third instalment in François-Frédéric Guy’s traversal of Beethoven and the first to delve into the chamber music. He is well matched in intellect, musicianship and temperament by cellist Xavier Phillips as they journey from the ridiculous (the Variations on ‘See the Conqu’ring Hero Comes’, in which Guy dispatches the virtuoso piano part with complete aplomb, to delectable effect) to the sublime (the Op 102 Sonatas). The two sets of variations on themes from Mozart’s Magic Flute are a very different proposition from the ‘Conqu’ring Hero’ but just as persuasive, with the Op 66 set given a particularly sparkling reading. Competition is of course thick on the ground, not least from Isserlis and Levin (playing a tremendously characterful McNulty fortepiano), which was an obvious choice for Record of the Month in February 2014. But Phillips and Guy deserve that accolade just as richly and their utterly different sound world is equally riveting.

Six quartets that are key to understanding what Joseph Haydn brought to the history of western music. This effort by the Quatuor Hanson is particularly successful because they know how to construct and express the quintessence of this subtle art. And what's more, they bring it off with a fascinating level of instrumental skill. Listening to this piece, we have to bow down once again before the genius of a composer who, along with Boccherini, invented a new genre and immediately studded it with masterpieces of staggering quality. Its title, All shall not die, is the international translation of the Latin epigraph engraved onto Haydn’s tombstone (non omnis moriar). The choice of this phrase indicates the permanence and universality of Haydn's body of work. Judiciously picked out from among Haydn's vast corpus, these six quartets are touching both in their expressiveness and in the perfection of their writing. Not a single note out of place, a perfect balance of four voices and an inspiration at every moment. The closing Opus 77, left unfinished, was a contemporary of Beethoven's first Quartets, Opus 18 – works that betray the lessons their writer learned from his master.More than two hundred years after his death, Haydn has only just found recognition as one of the greats, a status denied him in life. More than a forerunner, Haydn is a founder, a genius whose influence was felt by those who came after him, foremost amongst whom Beethoven and Schubert. This splendid album puts him (back) in his rightful place. © François Hudry/Qobuz
