Auf dem Weg

Eva-Christina Schonweiss

Chamber Music - Released January 7, 2022 | Genuin

Hi-Res Booklet
Two experienced chamber musicians, who have already worked as soloists with the Deutsches Sinfonie-Orchester, present a duo album on Genuin of works ranging from the late Romantic period to the 21st century. In this recording that crosses all boundaries, Eva-Christina Schönweiß (violin) and Kirsten Ecke (harp) have put together an exciting program featuring music of people in transit and in search of a home. In doing so, they wander through a wide variety of cultures, performing duos by the great masters of classical modernism such as Maurice Ravel and Astor Piazzolla, as well as contemporary music by Roman Ryterband, Thomas Rajna, Hooshyar Khayam and Jean-Michel Damase. The two instruments complement each other perfectly; the floating sounds of the harp and the sonorous warmth of the violin make for distinctive and exciting tonal blends. © Genuin

Beethoven, Schubert & Others: Orchestral Works (Live)

MDR Kammerphilharmoni

Classical - Released January 7, 2022 | Genuin

Booklet
As a servant to his craft, Heinz Rögner was influenced by the musical traditions of his hometown of Leipzig. On the occasion of the 20th anniversary of his death, Genuin together with MDR, is dedicating a significant box set to the great conductor, featuring concert recordings from the Gewandhaus from 1994 to 2001. Originally from a humble background, the musician worked predominantly in Berlin and Leipzig but was also exceptionally well-known and popular in Japan. This box provides us with superb recordings of Ludwig van Beethoven, Felix Mendelssohn-Bartholdy, Franz Schubert and Anton Bruckner, as well as Reger's Mozart Variations and Gershwin's An American in Paris. The MDR Symphony Orchestra and the MDR Chamber Philharmonic perform at their best! © Genuin

Dessiner les passions

Andreas Gilger

Classical - Released January 7, 2022 | Genuin

Hi-Res Booklet
Passions, emotions, affects: they are at the heart of the study of harpsichord music of the "Grand Siècle" in France, which produced composers such as Louis Couperin, Henry Du Mont and Jean-Henri D'Anglebert. In his first Genuin solo album, the young, first-rate harpsichordist Andreas Gilger relies on the perfect combination of a high-quality copy of a historical instrument and a room of ideal dimensions. In the Golden Hall of the Castle of Oettingen, he plays vibrant, passionate, surprising music of the 17th century, including a Suite by Jean-Nicolas Geoffroy, recorded for the first time. This is differentiated and rhetorically lucid harpsichord playing, which brings out the modernity and topicality of this music! © Genuin

Chiaroscuro

NDR Radiophilharmonie Hannover

Classical - Released January 7, 2022 | Genuin

Booklet
This Genuin portrait of Martin Christoph Redel depicts a composer's life, encompassing a wide variety of genres and instrumentations. The composer himself made the selection of works dating from 1982 to 2020. From the Bruckner-Essay to fine piano music, the present album looks at Redel's oeuvre that integrates techniques and genres of the past without disavowing his contemporary tonal language. Some of the works by the trained percussionist and composer, who was rector of the Detmold University of Music from 1993 to 2001, have political references. They reveal a creator who does not see himself as an isolated artist in an ivory tower but as a human being in society. A rewarding voyage of discovery! © Genuin

Cloud Castle

Sächsische Bläserphilharmonie

Classical - Released January 7, 2022 | Genuin

Hi-Res Booklet
In 2017, the Saxon Wind Philharmonic was accepted into Germany's "Excellent Orchestra Landscape" federal subsidy program by a commission for an orchestral piece to the renowned composer Jörg Mainka. With Cloud-Castle, Mainka created a reference work for contemporary symphonic wind music, which the elite ensemble from Bad Lausick has recorded for the first time here. The technically demanding and versatile piece is accompanied by other contemporary works that reflect the rich diversity of the repertoire and the virtuosity of the Wind Philharmonic. Their permanent first guest conductor David Timm also conducts Stephan Hodel's Legend of Curupira and Thorsten Wollmann's Sinfonia Antiqua. © Genuin

Detmolder Archivschätze: Zum 75-jährigen Bestehen der Hochschule für Musik Detmold (Live)

Hans Richter-Haaser

Classical - Released November 5, 2021 | Genuin

Booklet
For the 75th anniversary of the Detmold University of Music, Genuin is presenting a collection of lovingly restored recordings from the 1970s and 80s. As we gradually leaf through the booklet and listen through all these performances, we are treated to a veritable cornucopia: highly personal recordings by great musicians who played a significant role in shaping not only the history of the Detmold Institute, but also that of German post-war music history. The deeply stirring interpretations include works by Reger, Schoenberg, Brahms, and Beethoven, performed by Tibor Varga, André Navarra, Helmut Winschermann and many others! © Genuin

Minuten aus Jahrhunderten

Octavians

Vocal Music (Secular and Sacred) - Released November 5, 2021 | Genuin

Hi-Res Booklet
“Jewels from five centuries” aptly describes this collection, featuring small pieces of great music, that the a cappella group Octavians presents on this Genuin recording: canzones, motets, folk songs, and pop songs to which the winners of the 2017 A Cappella Contest Leipzig give their own unique coloring. The spectrum ranges from an old Spanish hymn of praise to motherly love to lieder by Franz Schubert and celebrated songs of our time by Paul Simon and Sting. The charm exuded by the internationally successful gentlemen is fully the match of their vocal skills: a uniform sound, infectious groove, and sparkling clean intonation are the hallmarks of the Octavians – truly a “deluxe boy band”! © Genuin

Liszt: Symphony No. 9 in D Minor, S. 657 (After Beethoven's Op. 125)

Piano Duo Chipak-Kushnir

Chamber Music - Released November 5, 2021 | Genuin

Hi-Res Booklet
The Piano Duo Chipak-Kushnir presents here the Beethoven's Ninth Symphony, in the version for two pianos by Franz Liszt. They are joined by Francisco Manuel Anguas Rodriguez with Beethoven's original timpani part. In this work Beethoven demolished all previously-known symphonic conventions, and Liszt in his version unerringly conveys the symphony’s pioneering quality, its darkness, but also its exultation. Like his other Beethoven transcriptions, the Ninth is less an arrangement than an artistic re-creation. In this recording the three musicians offer us a listening experience that casts new light on the piece’s symphonic structures and dynamic excitement. © Genuin

Beethoven: String Trios, Opp. 3 & 8

Trio Boccherini

Chamber Music - Released October 1, 2021 | Genuin

Hi-Res Booklet
Ludwig van Beethoven left only a few works for the string trio, and, unlike his quartets, they are played far too seldomly. The Trio Boccherini now presents a complete recording of these trios to draw attention to this. The program includes Beethoven's first two works in this genre, the Trio Op. 3 and the Serenade Op. 8. Ranging between evening entertainment and the concert hall, between music from his youth and maturity, the works are in any case true Beethoven: full of spirit, profound and with great élan! The Trio Boccherini plays historically informed without being dogmatic, technically sophisticated without being hard-nosed – in other words, with passion and verve! © Genuin

Ernsthaft?!: Witz und Wahn in Liedern von Zemlinsky, Schönberg und Daigger

Alice Lackner

Classical - Released October 1, 2021 | Genuin

Hi-Res Booklet
Frivolous young ladies, sisters with suicidal desires, crows, a depressed wanderer, and many other strange characters meet in colorful musical garb on this Genuin debut recording of the lied duo Alice Lackner (mezzo soprano) and Imke Lichtwark (piano). Music by Schönberg and Zemlinsky, written for the legendary Überbrettl cabaret in Berlin, is combined with contemporary music by Sven Daigger, two of which were written specifically for this recording. Lackner and Lichtwark approach the art songs straddling all genres with seriousness and extraordinary lightness. Listeners can expect sharp character sketches ranging from passionate love to honky-tonk and the dark abysses of the soul. © Genuin

Brahms: Serenade No. 1 in D Major, Op. 11 - Spohr: Nonet in F Major, Op. 31

Ensemble Obligat Hamburg

Chamber Music - Released October 1, 2021 | Genuin

Hi-Res Booklet
Twenty-five years of "Ensemble Obligat": reason enough to celebrate and honor an extraordinary chamber music formation. On this anniversary recording, Ensemble Obligat has expanded into a chamber orchestra with soloists to present Johannes Brahms' Serenade No. 1 and Louis Spohr's large Nonet in F major. These are two pieces that require a balance between soloistic leadership and overall sound, a quality that the ensemble embodies perfectly. Brahms' youthful work takes on a chamber-music-like sonority in this version. The Nonet of the "German Paganini" Louis Spohr, who broke exciting new ground in his time, benefits from the ensemble's harmonious spirit. © Genuin

Inspired by Bach

Samira Spiegel

Classical - Released October 1, 2021 | Genuin

Hi-Res Booklet
Samira Spiegel is an exceptional talent: she has won prizes at international competitions on both the violin and the piano! With Genuin, she now presents an exciting programme featuring music for both instruments inspired by Bach. On the piano, the works range from Franz Liszt's Fantasie und Fuge to Busoni's adaptation of the Chaconne and Francis Poulenc's Waltz-Improvisation to Damian Scholl's ... est un fleuve tranquille from 2013. On the violin, she juxtaposes Eugène Ysaÿe's fifth solo sonata, which is genuinely haunted by Bach, with the original Chaconne by the great Leipzig master. An adventurous and ludicrously virtuosic ride through styles and centuries! © Genuin

Drama

Acelga Quintett

Chamber Music - Released September 10, 2021 | Genuin

Hi-Res Booklet
This Acelga Quintet's thematic recording is full of drama! It features original works and arrangements for wind quintet by Luciano Berio, Franz Danzi, Jacob Gade, Claude-Paul Taffanel, and Giuseppe Verdi. All works relate their own narrative, both musically and dramatically: from homicidal opera thrillers to hungover brawls in the backlot. With a diverse tonal palette and a love of detail, the highly virtuosic wind ensemble interprets music that is dear to them. The five young musicians have won prizes in various competitions, including the ARD Music Competition, and hold positions at universities or major orchestras. © Genuin

Idylle

Joë Christophe

Chamber Music - Released September 3, 2021 | Genuin

Booklet
On this Genuin recording, these are the young clarinetist Joë Christophe and his piano partner Vincent Mussat on an emotional journey that passes through familiar and unfamiliar terrain and encounters sophistication, simplicity, passion, and tenderness. The prize-winning recording of the ARD Music Competition is also the duo's debut recording, which, in the selected works of the 20th and 21st centuries, proves to be highly versatile and rich in colors. In addition to music by Claude Debussy and Rebecca Clarke, the tracklist includes Mark Simpson's Three Pieces: A world premiere recording of the music written by the British composer as a commission for the ARD Music Competition. © Genuin

Thème russe

Eliot Quartett

Chamber Music - Released September 3, 2021 | Genuin

Booklet
The Eliot Quartet has already been showered with prizes, including awards at the German Music Competition, the Mozart Competition in Salzburg, and the Melbourne Competition. This new recording presents two milestones of the string quartet repertoire: Ludwig van Beethoven's "Razumovsky"-Quartet, Op. 59 No. 1, and Sergei Prokofiev's thrilling Second Quartet. Both works deal with East European folklore, and the four musicians bring out their melodic colors and rhythmic peculiarities with great accuracy and homogeneity of sound. © Genuin

Impressions

Simon Luethy

Chamber Music - Released September 3, 2021 | Genuin

Hi-Res Booklet
On his debut Genuin recording, Simon Luethy lets his nearly 300-year-old violin by Nicola Gagliano sing: The violinist, who made his Carnegie Hall debut back in 2017, plays works by Ludwig van Beethoven, Sergei Prokofiev, Henryk Wieniawski, and Franz Waxman – all highlights of the repertoire and touchstones for any young musician. Luethy plays the classic "Spring" Sonata and the bravura Carmen Fantasy with precise articulation and tonal beauty. In the sonatas, pianist Alexandra Troussova proves to be an equal partner, and in the virtuoso pieces she provides the young violinist with a rich-sounding backdrop. © Genuin

Nothing but Tuba

Trio 21meter60

Chamber Music - Released July 23, 2021 | Genuin

Hi-Res Booklet
21 meters 60: that's the length of the tubes of the three instruments that give us an extraordinarily low-frequency experience on this new Genuin recording: Tubists Constantin Hartwig, Fabian Neckermann, and Steffen Schmid perform music from Monteverdi to the present on their trio's debut recording. Their creative arrangements combine a wide variety of styles and genres: Monteverdi's Canzonettas are given a completely new warmth and roundness. Astor Piazzolla's famous Libertango surprises us with pulsating rhythms and rough edges. And finally, the three tuba players take us to the cinema, to a tongue-in-cheek and breathtaking homage to Morricone. Our recommendation: take a deep breath and immerse yourself in this extraordinary world of sound! © Genuin

Contrasts: Dresden Solo

Annette Unger

Classical - Released July 23, 2021 | Genuin

Hi-Res Booklet
From the very first note, violinist Annette Unger's new Genuin recording will captivate you with an eclectic program featuring early and contemporary music from Dresden, full of electrifying contrasts. The oldest composition is by Bach contemporary Johann Georg Pisendel, while the most recent by Manfred Weiss was premiered by Annette Unger as recently as 2015. Aside from Pisendel's great work, all the other pieces in this production are world premiere recordings. Annette Unger, who plays flawlessly and with a wealth of color, presents a kaleidoscope of violinistic possibilities, compositional ideas, and intellectual approaches to music, intimately connected to the musical city of Dresden. © Genuin

Erwachen

Robert Pohlers

Classical - Released July 2, 2021 | Genuin

Hi-Res Booklet
"Erwachen" ("Awakening") is the title of tenor Robert Pohlers' solo debut recording on Genuin. Together with his pianist Friedrich Praetorius, he brings to life a unique compilation of lieder by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy: Songs of Nature, Life, and Love, sung mainly from the new edition of the Saxon Academy of Sciences in Leipzig. Why this is only now available is because the beautiful lieder are predominantly of private origin, and many of them were not originally intended for publication at all. With their intimate character, they are sonorous heart-to-heart messages, brought to us by the gentle voice of the former member of the Thomanerchor Robert Pohlers and the clear piano playing of Friedrich Praetorius. © Genuin
