Music and friendship are utterly intertwined for Hania Rani and Dobrawa Czocher, the Polish duo who have just recorded their first album of original music, "Inner Symphonies". Friends since their teenage years at music school in Gdansk, the pair share a spirit of adventure and curiosity. Even as life took them on different paths - Hania as a pianist and composer with two solo albums and a collection of songs written for Cinema, Theatre and Art Performances to her name; Dobrawa as solo cellist with the Szczecin Philharmonic - their friendship endured. In 2015, they collaborated on an album Biala Flaga, featuring their arrangements of Polish rock star Grzegorz Ciechowski's msuic, giving them a taste of recording success and leading to the yet more ambitious "Inner Symphonies". © Deutsche Grammophon

Hi-Res Booklet
“This album is, in many ways, about love: the romantic love between husband and wife; familial love between parents and their children; and love for the Creator.”Daniil Trifonov's new album, Bach: The Art of Life, explores the scientific, emotional and spiritual fibre of Bach's work. The exceptional Russian pianist, famous for his romantic interpretations of Rachmaninoff and Chopin, now extends his recording palette to Baroque piano music and presents an incredibly spiritual programme for Deutsche Grammophon based around Bach and his sons.The centrepiece of the album is The Art of Fugue, one of Bach's late masterpieces written in the last ten years of his life. In the early and mid-eighteenth century - and thus before the Enlightenment - music, like other scientific disciplines, was seen as a means of expression to explain the laws of nature and thus the will of God. Consequently, the polyphonic construction of the work was a central means for the composer to musically interpret his environment. According to Trifonov, the highly spiritual character of the piece represents 'the pioneering musical realisation of Bach's personal, religious, scientific and humanistic knowledge'.However, it is not only Bach, but also many of his descendants who make up the strength of this unique programme. Collective musical practice was an integral part of the Bach family's daily life, with each child developing his or her own style. The booklet of notes for Anna Magdalena Bach, compiled by Bach himself, summarises these personal and intimate family studies on paper, which Trifonov complements with Johann Christoph Friedrich Bach's "Ah! vous dirai-je, maman" (Ah, shall I tell you, Mama) variations, as well as works by Johann Christian, Wilhelm Friedemann and Carl Philipp Emanuel, among others.Trifonov, an exceptional virtuoso, succeeds in doing justice to polyphonic music with his great technical precision and total artistic commitment. His sensitive and profound understanding of Bach's philosophy and compositions is a wonderful setting for this comprehensive overview of the composer's life and musical legacy, which the performer generously offers to his listeners. © Lena Germann/Qobuz

Emily d'Angelo has already appeared in prestigious opera productions at the Metropolitan Opera and the Berlin State Opera. For her first solo project, released by Deutsche Grammophon, the Italian-Canadian mezzo-soprano has created a harmonious blend of sacred themes and female composers. The programme contrasts a selection of works by the 12th century mystic nun Hildegard von Bingen with contemporary pieces by composers Hildur Guðnadóttir, Missy Mazzoli and Sarah Kirkland Snider.Enargeia is one of those albums that leaves you in silent wonder long after you've finished the last track. Emily d'Angelo explores a whole range of uncharted territories with her firm yet airy voice. First of all, we are amazed by Mazzoli and Snider's arrangements of Bingen's works, which are perfectly integrated into their own compositions. Emily d'Angelo shows immense vocal maturity in the contemporary pieces. A true musical Valkyrie, she takes the listener's soul on an achingly powerful journey of initiation. Focusing on the grand themes of spirituality, the content is enhanced by the combination of classical instrumentation and the subtle contribution of electronics.Purists may lament the inadequacy of D'Angelo's vibrato for Bingen's medieval compositions. It is true that it is particularly prominent in the contemporary section of the selection, nevertheless, the boldness of such an artistic gesture is to be applauded. Enargeia is above all a sonic wandering in which the listener must accept losing all points of reference in order to reconnect with a wealth of archaic emotions. Pierre Lamy/Qobuz
