Debussy & Rivier: String Quartets

Mandelring Quartett

Klassiek - Verschenen op 5 november 2021 | audite Musikproduktion

Hi-Res Booklet
​The Mandelring Quartett's latest double release is dedicated to French repertoire. The first part presents Maurice Ravel's ground-breaking String Quartet and the equally colourful one by his contemporary Fernand de La Tombelle. This second release juxtaposes Claude Debussy's Quartet with Jean Rivier's two companion works rooted in neoclassicism - an exciting combination! The immense variety of colours in Claude Debussy's Opus 10 continues to fascinate to this day. Paul Dukas compared the unusual harmonies to a "splendid, artfully patterned tapestry"; chromaticisms and whole-tone scales, echoes of Javanese gamelan music, pizzicato and playing with mutes envelop the work in a shimmering cloak of sound. Jean Rivier, born in 1896 and dying in 1987, led an inconspicuous life, "no scandals, no pompous titles", as a magazine article from 1972 put it. Perhaps that is why his name is largely unknown today, even though his compositions were successful early on. He wrote more than 200 works in almost all genres, and although he remained committed to a neoclassical aesthetic throughout his life, his oeuvre is extremely diverse and varied. This is also reflected in the two Quartets written in 1924 and 1940. Rivier's works are characterised by a masterly sense of architecture and complex contrapuntal textures, rich in contrasts and strong emotions. According to the music commentator Paul Landormy, writing in 1943, "Jean Rivier enchants us, touches us, moves us [...]. Sometimes, however, he grips us hard, shakes us, oppresses us, and we are forced to yield to his almost tyrannical will. Let us not complain. No art will give us as much as that which so subdues us". © Audite

Un Bal

Sarah Christ

Klassiek - Verschenen op 1 oktober 2021 | audite Musikproduktion

Hi-Res Booklet
Dances are among the valuable "raw materials" that composers of all epochs have incorporated into their works. Baroque suites were based on dance forms from various countries, classical symphonies usually contained a minuet or dance movement, and in the 19th century composers of emerging musical nations made use not only of folk songs but also, and above all, of the dances of their home regions in order to form an independent language. In this album, harpist Sarah Christ shows that dance is as rich in moods as it is in forms: On "Un bal" - named after the second movement of Hector Berlioz's Symphonie fantastique - we hear the music of Johann Sebastian Bach, which moves so wonderfully freely within the framework of strict baroque models, the melancholy elegance in Chopin's and Debussy's waltzes, the folklore and rusticity in the pieces by Ferenc Farkas and Manuel de Falla, and the melancholy of Astor Piazzolla's tangos. © Audite

Gregor Joseph Werner: Vol. I: Salve Reginas & Pastorellas

La Festa Musicale

Klassiek - Verschenen op 1 oktober 2021 | audite Musikproduktion

Hi-Res Booklet
With this recording la festa musicale follows up on the outstanding success of its first release with works by Venturini and once again dedicates itself to high-quality but unknown repertoire: Gregor Joseph Werner (1693-1766), a titan on the threshold of Viennese Classicism, was Kapellmeister and immediate predecessor of Joseph Haydn at the Esterházy court. He was above all a supreme master of Latin musica sacra, though most of his instrumental music has been lost. Werner's compositions, including his Salve Reginas and Pastorellas presented here, display beguiling melodic invention and bold harmonic expressivity combined with enormous contrapuntal skill. Haydn profited considerably from his predecessor and actual teacher; the gallant, erudite synthesis of the late Mozart is already largely preformed in Werner. Werner's œuvre, which is difficult to access and has survived almost exclusively in individual parts, has been researched by Lajos Rovatkay - also the conductor of this recording - in decades of work. Together with the top-ranking ensemble of soloists and la festa musicale, impressive interpretations of the works of this unjustly neglected master have emerged. © Audite

Basevi Codex - Music at the Court of Margaret of Austria

Dorothee Mields

Klassiek - Verschenen op 3 september 2021 | audite Musikproduktion

Hi-Res Booklet
The Boreas Quartett Bremen and soprano Dorothee Mields bring a little-known musical manuscript of the renaissance to life and present a series of premiere recordings. The Basevi Codex, a collection of Franco-Flemish chansons, motets and mass settings, was produced during the early sixteenth century in the famous music scribing workshop of Pierre Alamire. Faithfully following renaissance performance practice, which allowed great freedom in its musical realisations, the recorder consort and Dorothee Mields interpret selected pieces from the codex, with voice or purely instrumental, and, depending on the character of the piece, also with improvised virtuoso ornamentation. This creates a colourful picture of the music as it was sung and played at the Burgundian-Dutch court of Princess Margaret of Austria in Mechelen. This recording is the second volume of a multi-part audite recording series with recorder player Julia Fritz, and the audite debut recording of the Boreas Quartett Bremen. © Audite

Karl Böhm conducts Hindemith & Bruckner (Live)

Wiener Philharmonic Orchestra

Symfonische muziek - Verschenen op 3 september 2021 | audite Musikproduktion

Hi-Res Booklet
Between 1950 and 1980, he was one of the eminent conductors of international standing, and yet in the meantime he has somewhat faded into obscurity: Karl Böhm epitomised the anti-star amongst the great conductors of his time, emphatically at the service of music alone. Now available for the first time are two Lucerne concert recordings made with the Vienna Philharmonic, with whom he was closely associated for decades: Bruckner's Seventh Symphony alongside a buoyant Hindemith Concerto (the latter recorded only once by Böhm). An advocate for contemporary music in his youth, Böhm performed Paul Hindemith's Concerto for Woodwinds, Harp and Orchestra (1949) in Lucerne in the summer of 1970. Cast in three movements, this work offers especially rewarding passages to the five-part concertino grouping and, via a quotation of Mendelssohn's Wedding March, refers to Hindemith's own silver wedding anniversary. Alongside symphonic works of Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Brahms and Strauss, Anton Bruckner's symphonies were also at the centre of Böhm's concert repertoire. Böhm's Bruckner interpretations possess a special aura, though he neither follows the pious, pathos-laden manner of Eugen Jochum, nor the solemn worldly style of Sergiu Celibidache, nor the austere and matter-of-fact interpretations of Nikolaus Harnoncourt. This is also demonstrated by the Lucerne concert recording of the Seventh Symphony, made in September 1964: Böhm never loses sight of the whole, but plays out every articulatory detail as notated, with almost scrupulous textual fidelity. He follows Bruckner's block-like editing technique without aggressively emphasising it. He does not evade the solemn monumentality of the music, but he also does not exaggerate it into a sense of false, violent pathos. In cooperation with audite, Lucerne Festival presents the "Historic Performances" series featuring outstanding concert recordings of artists who have shaped the festival throughout its history. The aim of this edition is to rediscover treasures - most of which have not previously been released - from the first six decades of the festival, which was founded in 1938 with a special gala concert conducted by Arturo Toscanini. These recordings have been made available by the archives of SRF Swiss Radio and Television, which has broadcast the Lucerne concerts from the outset. Painstakingly re-mastered and supplemented with photos and materials from the Lucerne Festival archive, they represent a sonic history of the festival. © Audite
