After the violence and destruction of the First World War, a new musical aesthetic developed in Paris. Following the publication of Jean Cocteau’s famous pamphlet Le Coq et l’Arlequin, Impressionist influences were denigrated and instead simplicity in expression was promoted. This album of flute music charts this new ‘Harlequin’ direction, from old school adherent Pierre de Bréville to foreign musicians such as Tansman and Antheil who flocked to the city. Foremost among the exponents are members of the famous Groupe des Six whose innovations challenged and changed French wind music forever. © Naxos

Hi-Res Booklet
Still relatively unknown outside of Northern Europe, Rosanne Philippens is one of the best Dutch violinists of her young generation. She has an exclusive recording contract with label Channel Classics. The fifth album of this fruitful collaboration, "Insight", is also the young musician’s very first solo programme, proposing works from Biber, Bach, Enescu and Ysaÿe, as well as a few improvisations, bridging the gap between pieces. Right from the incipit of Biber’s Passacaglia, Rosanne Philippens amazes with the fleshy, woody sonority of her instrument, the brightness of her phrasings and the flow of her conceptions. This programme features a dialogue between centuries, a conversation between wildly diverse aesthetics, and must be approached like a genuine journey, without markers, a dive into the unknown. The works are fragmented; J. S. Bach’s Partita No. 2 for instance is presented in two distinct pieces, and doesn’t even include the final Chaconne − maybe in volume two? Biber’s wonderful Passacaglia (perhaps its most beautiful recorded interpretation on a violin) opens and closes the album. To go along, some fantastic pieces by Enescu, starting with the Sarabande, a clear homage to the Thomaskantor. In the very rare Airs dans le genre roumain, Rosanne Philippens attests her natural insight into Eastern European compositions – she has already recorded many of Bartók and Szymanowski’s works. An artist worth discovering in a particularly bold programme. © Pierre-Yves Lascar/Qobuz

The composers whose music is featured on the present album lived and worked in Czechoslovakia between the two world wars, and their fates were afflicted by the monstrous Nazi regime. Viktor Ullmann, who before WWII held the post of Kapellmeister at the New German Theatre, wrote his Quartet No. 3 while he was detained at the Theresienstadt ghetto-camp. Hans Krása completed the Theme and Variations in 1936, yet he only saw it performed in Theresienstadt, along with his children's opera Brundibár. Erwin Schulhoff's Five Pieces reveal his zest for rhythm and dance, as well as his evidently having been inspired by the music of the Viennese salons, Italy and Spain. Pavel Haas's Quartet No. 2, dating from 1925, serves as vivid proof of the claim that the composer was the most gifted pupil of Leoš Janáček. In October 1944, Haas, Ullmann and Krása were among the thousands of Theresienstadt prisoners transported to Auschwitz, where they would be murdered in the gas chambers. The Bennewitz Quartet launched their international career following their victories at the prestigious competition in Osaka (2005) and the Prémio Paolo Borciani in Italy (2008). Ever since they have regularly performed at the world's most prominent venues (Wigmore Hall in London, Musikverein in Vienna, Konzerthaus in Berlin, Théâtre des Champs-Elysées in Paris, concert halls in New York, Seoul, etc.) and festivals (Salzburger Festspiele, Lucerne Festival, Rheingau Musik Festival, etc.). The music of the Theresienstadt composers has found in them splendid performers. The music of the Theresienstadt composers, taken on by the Bennewitz Quartet: a truly congenial association. © Supraphon

The three pieces the Smetana Trio have selected for their new album came into being within the range of a mere four years, yet they represent three different musical universes. Anton Arensky’s Piano Trio evokes the atmosphere of the 19th-century salons, where music was played to delight the gathered bourgeoisie company. The work Alexander Zemlinsky created at the age of 25 marks the accession of the seeking of new sound and harmony. The one-movement trio Sergei Rachmaninoff, a piano virtuoso and composer rolled into one, wrote when hew was 19, teems with elegiac nobleness, which would remain the quintessential trait of the future globetrotter’s music. And whereas Arensky’s short life was marred by inner turmoil, the paths of Zemlinsky and Rachmaninoff were affected by outer circumstances – both of them died within a year, far away from their respective homelands, in the United States. With their typical vivacity and zest, the internationally renowned Smetana Trio perform three remarkable compositions dating from the late 19th century. © Supraphon

Alexander Borodin composed one of the most popular pieces in the romantic quartet repertoire, probably because it is a sort of love letter dedicated to Borodin's wife Ekaterina. (...) Dmitri Shostakovich composed an autobiography in music: After twenty-five years of 'inner emigration' he allowed himself once more to be personal, even if only in words to the wise. (...) And the third composer on this recording was was considered a well-kept secret of the Soviet Union for long for the western world: Moisei Vainberg, or (likewise in Russian) Mieczyslaw Weinberg.
