This new studio recording contains three works for piano and orchestra that virtuoso pianist Orion Weiss and conductor Leon Botstein first performed in concert at the Bard Music Festival. Together, the three works span almost a century of musical Romanticism and are as different from one another as the generations they represent. In each piece, the virtuoso genre becomes a means by which the composer responds to a specific source of inspiration — in the first case (Korngold), a performer and family friend who had suffered a horrendous tragedy, in the second (Rimsky Korsakov), a venerated old master, and in the third (Chopin) a melody from a beloved opera. © Bridge Records

Booklet
Bridge's Poul Ruders Edition, Vol. 16, features the world premiere recording of a major new Ruders concerto, the seven movement Sound and Simplicity (2018), performed by Danish accordion virtuoso Bjarke Mogensen and the Odense Symfoniorkester, led by Sebastian Lang-Lessing. The album also includes Mogensen's transcription of Ruders's hypnotic Dream Catcher for solo accordion, and the re-issue of one of the Danish composer's masterpieces - his Symphony No. 3, subtitled Dream Catcher. Ruders stands today among a handful of the world's leading composers, with operas staged in Munich, London, Copenhagen, New York, Santa Fe, and Boston, and symphonic scores commissioned by the Berlin Philharmonic, the New York Philharmonic, and the BBC Symphony Orchestra. © Bridge Records

Booklet
American pianist Beyza Yazgan's passionately played collection of Turkish classical piano repertoire from a group of composers known as “The Turkish Five”: Cemal Resit Rey (1904-1985), Ferid Alnar (1906-1978), Ulvi Cemal Erkin (1906-1972), Adnan Saygun (1907-1991), and Necil Kazim Akses (1908-1999). The music was composed between 1931-1976 with most of the pieces inspired by Anatolian folksongs, stories, dances, dirges, and lullabies. Though the compositions were all written for piano, the colors and influences of eastern instruments are present throughout. © Bridge Records

"Visca l’amor" features tenor Isaí Jess Muñoz and pianist Oksana Glouchko. The album focuses on the fascinating music and poetry of Catalunya - an area of northeastern Spain and southeastern France, whose language was long censored by the Franco dictatorship. This new recording represents one of the few explorations of the rich Catalan tradition, including six song cycles by Frederic Mompou, Eduard Toldrá, Joan Comellas, Ricard LaMotte de Grignon, Narcís Bonet, and a world premiere of a new work by Elisenda Fábregas. © Bridge Records

Just 23 when this recording appeared on the Bridge label in 2020, tenor Brian Giebler was already getting attention as a rising singer. This release will only help him along, for it combines beautiful singing with intelligent repertory choice and fine insight into some unusual works. The album earned a Best Solo Vocal Grammy nomination in 2020. The all-English program opens with Ivor Gurney’s Ludlow and Teme, published in 1923 but written much earlier. The work sets texts by A.E. Housman and is for the novel combination of tenor, string quartet, and piano, and Giebler appropriately reins in his powerful voice to balance with the instruments and with the classical simplicity of Housman’s texts. There are important works by Britten, not heard as often as they should be; these include the cycle Fish in the Unruffled Lakes. It has probably been neglected because it was put together from works discarded from other projects, but it has many striking moments, and Giebler digs into the subtle W.H. Auden texts, shifting gears effectively from the Housman. Giebler brings together talented players and singers throughout, as one can hear in Britten’s Canticle II, Op. 51, where countertenor Reginald Mobley is highly effective in the work’s quiet drama. There are also songs by Peter Warlock, John Ireland, Roger Quilter, and contemporary composer Ian Venables, not a one of them receiving anything less than Giebler’s full attention. The texts are unified by the theme of unrequited love, made emotionally immediate in the modern way in the Venables song, and by the fact that none of the texts specify the gender of the person loved. Rather cavernous sound from a collegiate concert hall is one of the few features marring a very affecting album. © TiVo
