Booklet
“I see the future of Baroque orchestral music in the hands of modern ensembles – the fetish of the "original instrument" has had its day, but not the profoundly trained professional who guides an orchestra into the deeper dimensions of the composition. For it isn’t the instrument that makes the music, but the head!“ (Reinhard Goebel) The Süddeutsche Zeitung reveres him as an "icon of early music", and the New York Times applauds him as a "light in a sea of mediocrity". Reinhard Goebel specializes in the repertoire of the 17th and 18th centuries. As an expounder of period performance practice for both early music ensembles and modern orchestras, and as an endless fount of knowledge about gems of the repertoire, he is a world-renowned specialist. In May 2018 he was named artistic director of the Berliner Barocksolisten with whom he pursued an intensive artistic collaboration for years. © Haenssler Classic

Booklet
The Heidelberger Sinfoniker have named conductor Johannes Klumpp as their Artistic Director for the 2020/2021 season. In so doing, they have chosen him as successor to their founder Thomas Fey, who established the “Heidelberg Symphonists” as one of the leading historically informed orchestras for the Classical and early Romantic periods. Johannes Klumpp was educated in Weimar and is Principal Conductor of the Folkwang Chamber Orchestra of Essen and Artistic Director of the Summer Music Academy at Schloss Hundisburg. As guest conductor, he has stood before notable orchestras such as the Dresden Festspielorchester, the Stuttgart Staatsorchester, the MDR Symphony Orchestra, the Düsseldorf Symphony, the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra and many more. Johannes Klumpp has already attracted attention with his interpretations and recordings of the works of Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and is regarded as an established expert on period performance practice. © Haenssler Classic

Booklet
The present recording is taken from a live transmission of the Academy concert of May 8, 1972, from the Nationaltheater in Munich. The early death of Karl Richter in February 1981 frustrated the intention of releasing one of the great oratorios from his performing repertoire, Joseph Haydn’s “The Creation”, in a studio recording. Happily it has proved possible to obtain the present sound recording from the archives of the Bayerische Staatsoper and, with the kind consent of the participants, to prepare a technically enhanced release. Despite a number of remaining technical inadequacies, such as may be considered characteristic for historic recordings of this nature, this audio document gives a particularly fine impression of the ambience and the authenticity of a live performance with conductor Karl Richter – complementing, as it were, the many available studio recordings of his wide-ranging musical repertoire. © Haenssler Classic

Hi-Res Booklet
The first true complete recording of Robert Schumann’s works for piano solo on 17 albums (in 15 volumes), played by Florian Uhlig, seeks for the first time to offer imaginative compilations on album (e.g. “Robert Schumann and the Sonata”, “The Young Piano Virtuoso”, “Schumann in Vienna”, “Schumann and Counterpoint”, “Variations”) containing all original works for pianoforte written between 1830 (Abegg Variations op. 1) and 1854 (Ghost Variations) according to the newest critical editions and/or first editions. Several of these albums include premiere recordings. The booklets by Joachim Draheim, who discovered and/or edited a number of the works, shed light on the biographical and musicological background to the works thus coupled. © Haenssler Classic

To make the dream come true and record the music for the album, Kaczka and Nadrzycki had to conquer thousands of kilometres and overcome numerous obstacles. The mental barrier turned out to be the hardest: if they wanted to focus strictly on the music, they had to forget about cancelled flights and restrictions, not to mention all the disturbing news regarding the global spread of SARS-Co-V 2 or the insecure artistic and professional prospects for the future in face of the lockdown and closed concert halls. But they succeeded. They managed to devote themselves to the music entirely, the result being an exquisite album that for listeners will prove to be a welcome respite from the pandemic and a space to breathe freely. © Haenssler Classic

Hi-Res Booklet
Engelbert Humperdinck (1854–1921) was a student at the Conservatory in Cologne from the spring of 1872; it was at this time that he got to know the Siegburg district judge and arbitrator Johannes Degen (1826–1902), an excellent singer and violinist, who gave regular chamber concerts in Siegburg at which he played in his own string quartet. Humperdinck, whose talent he had astutely spotted, was the pianist and composer he had been looking for. For his part, the young music student saw his admission to Degen’s chamber-music circle as an opportunity for regular performance; in return, he wrote whatever Degen requested. Humperdinck’s tally of 13 chamber compositions represents a relatively small part of his oeuvre (beside his six operas and about 80 Lieder, along with stage music and choral works). Brief album-leaves for violin or cello and piano contrast with works for the major Classical genres of string quartet, piano quintet, piano trio, sonata and sonatina – most of which were never finished and sometimes survive only in the form of short sketches. His finished pieces include two major works, an early piano quintet (1875) and a late string quartet (1920); the other completed movements include some tailored to Degen’s domestic music-making. © Haenssler Classic

Wolfram Gehring, known among other things for having inaugurated Allen organs in many churches all over Germany, has been somewhat forgotten. Although he had been off the radar for several years, the Cologne-based organist nevertheless distinguished himself as an excellent ambassador of the modern organ - his 1973 recording of Marcel Dupré's Chemin de la Croix has left a lasting impression. The reissue, almost forty years on, of "Virtuoso Orgel" is an opportunity to savour this musical madeleine, a pleasant if sadly rather small musical morsel.This old LP, published on the Laudate label and reproduced here in its entirety, was cut down to include only Charles-Marie Widor's Symphony for Organ No. 5 and the last movement, Final-Allegro, of Louis Vierne's Symphony No. 1 in D minor. It has a slight air of déjà vu about it: in the years since its initial release, these two pieces have become real hits. This is an able recording, made using the instrument in the St. Lucia Kirche in Stolberg. Wolfram Gehring will appeal to music lovers who cherish clarity in recordings, although this record lacks the lush panache and airy phrasing of the works of Daniel Chorzempa (Philips). This is a clean, masterful, virtuoso performance, and Gehring demonstrates the range and variety of his instrument. © Pierre Lamy/Qobuz

Booklet
Her playing may aptly be described as emotional and intense : displaying “amazing expressiveness and brilliance” (Westfalenpost) and “an empathy that touches one deep inside” (Märkische Allgemeine), Gerlint Böttcher fascinates her audiences in Europe, Asia, America and the Middle East. She makes solo appearances with such celebrated orchestras as Berlin’s Konzerthaus Orchestra, the South-West German Chamber Orchestra of Pforzheim, the Berlin Symphony, the Ryazan Philharmonic in Russia, the Philharmonic State Orchestra in Halle and the Brandenburg State Orchestra of Frankfurt an der Oder under such conductors as Sergey Oselkov, Heribert Beissel, Timo Handschuh and Nicholas Milton. The pianist is a regular performer at major festivals; in cooperation with the Bayreuth Festival, she has repeatedly played at Haus Wahnfried in Bayreuth. Many of the compositions that she has premiered were written expressly for her by composers of the first rank. Alongside the solo repertoire, which takes first place in her artistic life, she takes part in programmes of genuine rarities together with such partners as Echo Klassik prizewinners Bassiona Amorosa and actor Hans-Jürgen Schatz. © Haenssler Classic

Swantje Asche-Tauscher belongs to that generation of young German violinists who win people over with their “expressive, sonorous playing”. At the age of 14, this talented artist appeared as a soloist in the Stuttgart Liederhalle. She had played at the Mozarteum Foundation in Salzburg, performs at festivals such as the Palermo Classica Festival, and is a lecturer at Strings in Motion. For the 2019/2020 season, Swantje Asche-Tauscher held the position of principal second violinist in the Tyrol Symphony Orchestra in Innsbruck. Markos Destefanos is one of the most promising classical guitarists of his generation. Eliot Fisk describes his playing as “charismatic and well-thought-out”, while praising his “powerful intellect”. In addition to winning national and international prizes, Markos Destefanos was awarded a scholarship by the foundation “Live Music Now”, as well as a performance scholarship by the Mozarteum University. He currently teaches at the State Music School of Upper Austria, and increasingly presents masterclasses at home and abroad. Furthermore, since 2018 he has been working as a scientific consultant for the successful music education platform “Tonebase”. © Haenssler Classic
