The music of the so-called Mannheim School, written for the large and virtuosic court orchestra in the German city of Mannheim in the second half of the 18th century, has been out of fashion. From a modern perspective it doesn't seem to have contained the groundbreaking discoveries that were happening in Vienna. Yet in its own time the Mannheim orchestra (memorialized by the high-tech instrumental pop group Mannheim Steamroller) was, in the words of clarinetist Andreas Ottensamer, "a rock-star ensemble," famed for its brilliant individual players. The orchestra introduced various instrumental innovations, including the first prominent use of the clarinet, to which are owed Mozart's towering works for the instrument. Ottensamer, principal clarinetist for the Berlin Philharmonic, offers a varied selection of music from Mannheim, including one concerto each from the father-and-son pair of Johann and Carl Stamitz. He also finds some rarer music, most notably a Concerto for clarinet, bassoon, and orchestra by Franz Danzi. For no very good reason other than that Ottensamer apparently wanted to perform with his friend Albrecht Mayer, the bassoon part of this work is transcribed for cor anglais, but it's certainly possible to imagine the transcription being done in the work's own time. It is a small masterpiece of intricate ensemble writing that may bring to mind Haydn's Sinfonia Concertante in B flat major, Hob. 1/105. Sample its ebullient finale, so much more varied than the rather stumpy Carl Stamitz finale. The opera-based pieces on the album by Danzi and Mozart are elegantly done and allow Ottensamer plenty of opportunity for pure technical display. A satisfying release, very nicely recorded at Berlin's Teldex studio.

Bruno Walter, Memories of a Departed Legend

Listening to Bruno Walter’s recordings, in light of the splendid remastered editions published by Sony Classical, you tap into a truly humanistic culture. A tremendous conductor, music was his vocation, a way of life and an art of thought. His recordings have conserved his art vocal music, intense but never sentimental, thanks to a clear linearity complemented by a versatile rhythm, ensuring clarity, coherence and vigour.

Beethoven: Fidelio's Big Adventure

Based on a story from France during the Revolutionary Terror (the story of an intrepid young woman who disguised herself as a man to save her husband from the dungeon), Beethoven's unique opera has had a turbulent life, and has been reworked here and there over the years. New proof of the German composer's musical genius, Fidelio also permitted him to write a musical setting for a libretto that matched his political beliefs.

Wilhelm Kempff: The Most Human of Pianists

An artist of another time, Wilhelm Kempff (1895-1991) believed in inspiration: he took on music as if it were a religion, with a respectful enthusiasm for the masters that came before him. With his velvet touch, sense of phrasing and storytelling quality, Wilhelm Kepff’s art was like that of a waking dream. Half poet, half divine, during a time when expression of emotion triumphed all. He recorded many times the works of his favourite composers, in particular his ‘god’ Beethoven, for whom Kempff is well known and left behind three complete sonatas in keeping with his own maturation and the evolution of his recording technique.
