Alexandre Tansman was one of the most important Polish composers of the 20th century. He enjoyed an excellent reputation as a composer, conductor and pianist. His guitar works, mostly commissioned for Andrés Segovia, were an important element of his compositional output. Tomasz Zawierucha would like to express his sincere gratitude to Marianne Tansman, the composer's daughter, for providing him with the master's manuscripts. In these interpretations Zawierucha has always tried, within the limits of technical feasibility, to keep to the original version of the works without editorial changes. Tomasz Zawierucha has been teaching at the Franz Liszt University of Music Weimar and the Vorarlberg State Conservatoire, Austria. He is also a "Visiting Artist at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland" in Glasgow. In 2014 Tomasz Zawierucha was appointed Professor for Guitar at the Folkwang University of the Arts in Essen, Germany. © ARS-Produktion

"This is a splendid fellow and musician" - with this quote Robert Schumann characterized the then 26-year-old Danish composer-colleague Niels Wilhelm Gade in a letter of January 5, 1844 to his Dutch friend Johannes Verhulst. The works on this release are testimonies of three different creative periods of Gade: an early work is the first Sonata in A Major, Op. 6 (dedicated to Clara Schumann) - the second Sonata in D minor, Op. 21, (dedicated to Robert Schumann) was composed in 1850 - the third Sonata in B-flat Major, Op. 59 (dedicated to Wilma Normann-Neruda) belongs to the circle of his late compositions. Among Gade's last works is the collection Volkstänze im nordischen Charakter, Op. 62, written in 1886 for the great violinist Joseph Joachim. © ARS-Produktion

The three pieces on this release have one thing in common: they combine dances with contrasting musical pieces to form a large whole - the suite. This tradition goes back as far as the Baroque period, where Bach, Handel and Rameau, among others, established this form. Later, from the Romantic period on, sequences of character pieces as well as compilations of larger works were also called suites. An interesting fact: all three composers of the suites on this album were 27 years old at the time their pieces were written. © ARS-Produktion

It is not written words, but narrative sound worlds that allow the listener to dive into the composer's fantastic world. Like no other, Leoš Janácek understood how to bring a fairy tale (Pohádka) to life in a sound-painting manner. Robert Schumann's musical fairy tale pictures provide deep insights into his soul life. Martinu's highly dramatic First Cello Sonata and the dreamlike Waldesruhe by Antonin Dvorák complete the program. Cellist Mathias Johansen and pianist Andreas Hering take you on a fairy-tale journey of sound. Mathias Johansen has been a professor at the State Conservatory of Vorarlberg in Feldkirch since 2016. He has performed as a soloist with the Lithuanian National Orchestra, as well as the Berliner Philharmoniker. He is in demand as a chamber musician and regularly performs at various festivals. He is a member of the Berolina Ensemble and the Archos Quartet. © ARS-Produktion

With her first solo album, Emily Hoile would like to present works rarely heard on the harp until now. She takes great joy in arranging compositions for keyboard instruments and thus expanding the repertoire available to the harp: J.S. Bach's Toccata in C Minor and D. Scarlatti's Sonata K.135 in E Major make their debut on the harp with this release. The transcription of the Ballade by Claude Debussy is meant to underline the great importance that Paris had for harp music at the turn of the century. These arrangements are framed by two magnificent original compositions for the instrument: the surprisingly rarely played Harp Sonata by Casella and the Fantasy by Zabel inspired by Gounod's Faust. © ARS-Produktion

The saxophone, especially the alto saxophone, is not necessarily a very busy instrument in the symphony orchestra. However, in addition to its formative tracks in jazz, in quite a few cases it has also left sound traces in the field of so-called "classical music" that are worth listening to. These traces are followed by the album "Gravity Groove" by the Finnish saxophonist Joonatan Rautiola. In addition to an interesting arrangement detour to Mozart's Kegelstatt-Trio, it also brings to life impressionistic or neo-classical gems such as Claude Debussy's Rhapsody for Alto Saxophone and Paule Maurice's Tableaux de Provence. With Charles Wuorinen's Divertimento and the title sonata by Tuomas Turriago, Gravity Groove, Rautiola enters contemporary sound spheres with virtuosity and tonal refinement. © ARS-Produktion

It is important to Yunus Kaya to let his interpretation seem spontaneous, almost improvisational, with all the care of rehearsal. Ilona Eibenschütz, a student of Clara Schumann who met Brahms personally and visited him during his summer stay in Bad Ischl, was allowed to hear his Op. 118 and Op. 119 by the composer himself. In her memoirs, she describes his piano playing as "very free-spirited - as if he were improvising - with heart and soul..." During the recording, Kaya wanted to make these two aspects palpable: the loneliness and introversion on the one hand, and the openness to the spontaneous in sound and tempo shaping on the other. No feeling, no pain can be felt and described in the same way every day. From this basic attitude, Yunus Kaya has sought the balance between fidelity to the musical text and artistic freedom of the performer. © ARS-Produktion

An album on the occasion of the 100th birthday of Astor Piazzolla. The arde Trio offers two world premieres on its debut release: Fresh and new arrangements by Omar Massa, which are congenially embodied by the unusual instrumentation of the arde Trio, allow not only the great "classics" of Tango Nuevo music to resound anew on this album, but also the new compositions of Omar Massa, who leads Tango Nuevo into the 21st century and is described by the press as the secret successor of the great Astor Piazzolla. Experience a fascinating journey through time! © ARS-Produktion

This album is the result of an extraordinary adventure of self-development that began when the pianist Aldo Ciccolini offered Genny Basso to move to his house in Paris and be his personal assistant at international master classes. Much of Basso's current playing style has evolved from this experience, which has deeply influenced the way he feels and perceives interpretation. In the years that followed, Genny Basso had the privilege of listening to Ciccolini every day, trying to discover his secrets, taking his suggestions, listening to and commenting on music with him. And thanks to him Basso probably learned his most important lesson: making music is not narcissism, but full of love and sincerity. That's why his first album could not be anything but a tribute to him, to the intensity and purity of his soul, to his piano art and to the artistic lessons he left Genny Basso. © ARS-Produktion

Gustav Mahler's death left his Tenth Symphony unfinished, consisting only of an unfinished score and several sketches. Ensemble Mini, a radical collective of soloists from Germany's finest orchestras, presents Michelle Castelletti's fascinating recreation of the work - one of the most powerful sound creations ever written - in a version for chamber ensemble. Ensemble Mini is a radical collective of super-sonic-soloists from Germany's top orchestras that repackages super symphonic music for new audiences. Addressing the need to make classical music cool for the 21st century, its mission is to revolutionize the symphonic concert experience through new style, sound and setting whilst never dumbing down. © ARS-Produktion

The production with Reinhold Friedrich, Eriko Takezawa and Alisa Kratzer unites original works for trumpet and piano as well as arrangements for this instrumentation. One can only share Friedrich's regret that despite numerous, sometimes even exposed orchestral solos, there are no virtuoso solo concertos for trumpet by these composers. Reinhold Friedrich, a prolific performer on major stages around the world, is a professor of trumpet at Karlsruhe, a sought-after lecturer for master classes, honorary professor at the Royal Academy of Music in London, Escuela Superior de Musica Reina Sofia in Madrid and also in Hiroshima. Many of his recordings were awarded international prizes and got high press acclaim. Together with the versatile pianist Eriko Takezawa they form a perfectly harmonized duo whose repertoire reaches from Teleman over Gershwin to works by Sir Peter Maxwell Davies. © ARS-Produktion
