This release features the best Belgian clarinettist, Roeland Hendrikx, in collaboration with one of the world’s oldest and finest orchestras, the London Philharmonic. Hendrikx, incidentally, is the first Belgian virtuoso to team up with this illustrious ensemble. On the programme is the most famous clarinet concerto (Mozart’s), an undeservedly lesser known concerto (Bruch’s Double Concerto for Clarinet and Viola), and an erroneously forgotten one (by Gerald Finzi). All three concertos are more appropriately dubbed “clarinettist” concertos instead of clarinet concertos: more than any other instrument, the clarinet is a medium for personal dedication to specific virtuosi. Mozart created his clarinet concerto for Anton Stadler, while Max Bruch dedicated his (double) concerto to his son Max Felix. In some cases, however, the link between piece and performer is even stronger. Hendrikx had front row access to Gerald Finzi’s delicately autumnal concerto via his teacher Thea King, doyenne of British clarinettists and spouse of Frederick Thurston, who premiered the Finzi-concerto in 1949. According to Hendrikx, “Thea must have witnessed the creation process. In her own hand, she scribbled helpful recommendations in my score, which may have been passed on from Thurston, if not from Finzi himself”. But there is more. On 27 April 1998, Thea King bequeathed to Hendrikx the letters Finzi had written to her late husband between 1948 and 1953: they document the first ideas for the concerto, its genesis, and its growing post-premiere fame. These letters enable Hendrikx to go beyond the notes of the concerto, meet the protagonists, and do some sightseeing in the music’s spatiotemporal context. The Finzi-Thurston letters are extensively dealt with in the liner notes to this album, which is a veritable tribute to the concert clarinet: Hendrikx and the London Philharmonic Orchestra pay homage to a genre, its gems, and its genius performers. © EPR-Classic

The cellist Pieter Wispelwey and the pianist Paulo Giacometti have decided to record six albums comprising the complete works for duet of Brahms and Schubert. In other words, the pieces written for an instrument and piano. The instrument in question could be the cello, or the violin, the viola, etc. Because can a virtuoso cellist really resist the temptation to dip their toes into other repertoires than their own? After all, we know full well that the composers themselves wouldn't hesitate to transcribe, or authorise a transcription, of their own work for other instruments. And so here is the fourth volume of this collection, which hinges on Brahms's Sonate Op. 78, which was first written for violin in G major, here transcribed into D major by Paul Klengel in 1897; as well as the First Sonata, originally for clarinet Op. 120, by the very same Brahms. Of the latter work, we know that the composer himself transcribed it for the viola, and this transcription formed the basis for Pieter Wispelwey's own re-reading - very close to the viola part, within which he has simply transposed certain uncomfortably high passages down an octave. By way of overture we have Schubert's Rondo in B minor (1826), written for violin and piano, here brought down an octave (or two) for cello, although the change doesn't make any difference at all to the harmonic perception. © SM/Qobuz

Hi-Res Booklet
Second in a collection of six volumes devoted to Schubert and Brahms duets for cello and piano. The shrewdest on qobuz have already raised an eyebrow at the output of the first volume now know that between the two composers, there’s really only 2 Sonatas by Brahms and the sole Sonata Arpeggione by Schubert. Never mind, cellist Pieter Wispelwey and his regular accompanying pianist Paolo Giacometti have decided to do what has always been done, and consult the transcripts. Suddenly, we find ourselves at the head of several Schubertian fantasies, brought to life by the combined efforts of the duo, as well the Brahms sonatas for clarinet or viola, and some others derived from the flute-piano duet. The volume of the second program includes the First Sonata by Brahms and very virtuoso series of variations of Schubert originally designed for the flute. © SM / Qobuz
