This recording combines a selection of Weinberg's early works with the Piano Quintet and some of the children's notebooks from the last two years of the war. Born in Warsaw in 1919, Weinberg fled to Moscow in 1939. There he made friends with Shostakovich, who always supported him. Weinberg wrote numerous works, including 22 symphonies, 17 string quartets and numerous chamber music as well as his operas Wir gratulieren! and Die Passagierin. Weinberg dies in Moscow in 1996. In addition to the pianist Elisaveta Blumina, Noah Bendix-Balgley, Shanshan Yao, Máté Szücs and Bruno Delepelaire also perform here. © Oehms Classics

Booklet
Der ferne Klang by Franz Schreker (1878-1934) premiered on August 18, 1912 at the Frankfurt Opera House. Schreker had already begun composing his first full-length opera in 1901, after the text he had written in just a few weeks. Now the work, which was initially considered impossible to perform, but which made Schreker suddenly famous, is returning to the location of its premiere for the first time after 1945. Almost half of all operas by the Austrian, who with one exception was both composer and librettist for all of his stage works, performed or premiered in Frankfurt. The Choir of the Oper Frankfurt and Frankfurter Opern- und Museumsorchester perform under the direction of Sebastian Weigle. © Oehms Classics

There are very few recordings of Mascagni's Iris, of which only Cavalleria Rusticana is still played. He was, however, the author of some fifteen operas in a rather eclectic style which was influenced by verism among other things. Premiered in 1898, Iris, an opera in three acts, is part of a Japanese-inspired fashion which would culminate in Puccini's Madama Butterfly six years later, whose success would overshadow Mascagni's work.This new recording, in the absence of stars, makes it possible to reassess this opera and to repair the injustice of the oblivion into which it fell for such a long time. Yet the orchestration is light, the exotic touches discreet, and Mascagni's melodic vein never fails. Made in Berlin in 2021, this concert recording celebrates the tenth anniversary of the Berliner Operngruppe. Founded in 2010 by conductor Felix Krieger, its aim is to present operas outside the usual repertoire. The productions are presented in concert in a semi-stage production and then later published. © François Hudry / Qobuz

This collection contains the most important recordings by Alfredo Perl with piano works by Franz Liszt. A special highlight is the recording of the piano concertos with the BBC Symphony Orchestra. Alfredo Perl studied with Carlos Botto at the Universidad de Chile in Santiago, Günter Ludwig at the Musikhochschule in Cologne and Maria Curcio in London. He gave his first concert at the age of nine and then performed throughout South America and Europe as recitalist and with the Santiago Philharmonic Orchestra and the Zagreb Symphony Orchestra. Perl has since been a prizewinner in major competitions, including the Ferruccio Busoni Competition in Bolzano and the Beethoven Competition in Vienna, and he won first prize at the International Piano Competition in Montevideo. Alfredo Perl is professor for piano at the Detmold University of Music and has been artistic director of the Detmold Chamber Orchestra since 2009. © Oehms Classics

Good music was not enough for him: Alexander Scriabin wanted people with his music to liberate, redeem humanity. Scriabin's ecstatic sound poem leads the romantic Symphony orchestra at its limits. A departure into infinity: “And the universe echoed / From the joyful call / I am!” Says the end of his soaring poem “Poème de l’extase,” which is the inspiration for the symphonic work. With the voices of the WDR Rundfunkchor. A sung ending sounds in this recording, which crowns the bold flight of the soul with an orgiastic ending. As a long-time guest conductor of the Gürzenich-Orchester Köln, Dmitrij Kitajenko proves his particular affinity for the interpretation of Russian music here, as in Scriabin's Second Symphony. Kitjaneko celebrated his 80th birthday in 2020. © Oehms Classics

Booklet
This album by the young ensemble Salaputia Brass is dedicated to works by composers from England. The English tradition with the different brass formations meets here on the one hand arranged classical works by Gustav Holst, an original work by Arthur Butterworth, through arranged pieces by Anthony Holborne to the cross-genre themes from James Bond to the Beatles: All you need is Brass! They modestly call themselves “little fellows” (lat. Salaputia), but they have it all behind their ears - or rather, in their lips. Because nothing is too difficult for the young virtuosos from Salaputia Brass! The newcomers have already delighted in numerous concerts, including several times in the Hamburg Elbphilharmonie, at the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival, at the Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania Festival, at the Meran Brass Festival and as a guest on the ARTE TV program "Stars von Morgen". With their thematically designed programs, they manage the balancing act between the highest musical standards and entertaining listening pleasure for everyone. © Oehms Classics

Booklet
"From the New World" is the subtitle of Dvorak's famous Symphony No. 9, implying a departure into a new musical world and representing a bridge between the European and American music traditions and their influences. Dvorak's music shares the programme with works by Samuel Barber and Aaron Copland. These new organ transcriptions are performed by Hansjörg Albrecht on the Organ system (large organ, concert organ, echo organ) of the main church St. Michaelis in Hamburg. Hansjörg Albrecht is – besides Ton Koopman, Masaaki Suzuki, Martin Haselböck and Wayne Marshall – one of the few artists who are regularly present internationally both as conductor and concert organist. He is considered a musical innovator and lateral thinker without fear of contact. As a conductor, he consistently follows his own paths – between archive and new creation and with an extensive repertoire from Bach to Messiaen – and with his organ transcriptions he has established himself as a specialist among the virtuosos of his instrument. © Oehms Classics

This interpretation of Winterreise is certainly unusual. Here, there is no singer; instead, the text is recited. The music still allows Schubert’s themes and motifs to ring out, but it treats them with complete freedom. The instrumental timbres are also different: tenor saxophone, soprano saxophone and bass clarinet exchange with lute and theorbo. Axel Wolf and Hugo Siegmeth join narrator Stefan Hunstein on an introspective journey that is finely connected, both musically and interpretively. Winterreise is about human existence, about a redefinition of one’s position after a setback, when someone who has been rejected reflects on his life, surrounded by cold and darkness. This recording reflects an interplay between faithfulness to the original and freedom of expression, creating a personal world of winter travel that resembles a musical-text radio play. © Oehms Classics

Although Joseph Haydn excelled in every genre, sonata, quartet, symphony, opera, he was much less celebrated in the concerto than his young friend Mozart and his turbulent pupil Beethoven. A trumpet concerto, a few concertos for the keyboard and for the violin or other instruments, a dozen or so remaining untraceable and probably lost forever. Among this relatively thin corpus, only the Trumpet Concerto and the two Cello Concertos appear regularly in the repertoire. Long known in an edition arranged in questionable taste in the nineteenth century by Gevaert, Concerto in D major was published in a correct edition only in 1935, though of debateable attribution. It was not until the manuscript was discovered in 1953 that we were certain that it was in Haydn's hand. With beautifully virtuosic writing, it exploits all the cello’s technical possibilities, multiplying the pitfalls with lots of double stops, semiquavers and demisemiquavers which make its execution particularly delicate. Only rediscovered in 1961, the Concerto in C major was quickly recognised thanks to its undeniably melodic quality and its spectacular side combining great virtuosity with a gripping melody that’s full of life. Dating from the same period, Symphony No. 13 uses several solo instruments including a cello in the splendid Adagio cantabile which is a true cello concerto. The warm, deep sound of the 1777 Guadagnini mounted in gut strings by the British cellist Natalie Clein is particularly beautiful, recorded here during a concert in Graz in 2017. ©François Hudry/Qobuz

Hi-Res
The wanderer motif is a central theme in German 19thcentury romanticism. In this selection of songs, compiled by Rafael Fingerlos, the wanderer goes through various stages: from the desire to move into the wide world, full of curiosity and enthusiasm, to achieve freedom by leaving home. Foreign countries and foreign languages appear to the hiker on his journey. At some point the feeling of nostalgia for home and the desire to return mingle. Which home is the hiker looking for? An unfinished journey ends in peace, between strangers and home. Rafael Fingerlos is accompanied by pianist Sascha El Mouissi. © Oehms Classics

Opera - Verschenen op 20 maart 2020 | Oehms Classics

This new recording of Carl Maria von Weber's Freischütz comes from the Aalto Theatre in Essen, with a production recorded in December 2018 (restored in April 2020), under the direction of Tomáš Netopil, General Director of Music at this German institution. Set by the librettist at the time of the Thirty Years' War, Der Freischütz, as we know, is a kind of manifesto, the first real German opera between Fidelio by Beethoven and The Ghost Ship by Wagner, who was himself inspired by Weber. Although Tatjana Gürbaca's staging of Weber's fantastic opera as a reflection on Nazi atrocities was very poorly received, the show was saved by the musical quality of the project with excellent protagonists, such as Jessica Muirhead who plays a free and proud Agatha. The tenor Maximilian Schmitt (the Florestan in Leonore by Beethoven under the direction of René Jacobs, just released by harmonia mundi) is a very credible Max. As for the evil Kaspar sung by Heiko Trinsinger, it differs from the more widespread "black bass" by his clearer timbre and vengeful spirit. At the stand, Tomáš Netopil highlights the contrasts between drama and folk accents with a surefooted sense of rhythm which is never found wanting. © François Hudry/Qobuz
