Hi-Res Booklet
Ludwig van Beethoven left only a few works for the string trio, and, unlike his quartets, they are played far too seldomly. The Trio Boccherini now presents a complete recording of these trios to draw attention to this. The program includes Beethoven's first two works in this genre, the Trio Op. 3 and the Serenade Op. 8. Ranging between evening entertainment and the concert hall, between music from his youth and maturity, the works are in any case true Beethoven: full of spirit, profound and with great élan! The Trio Boccherini plays historically informed without being dogmatic, technically sophisticated without being hard-nosed – in other words, with passion and verve! © Genuin

Twenty-five years of "Ensemble Obligat": reason enough to celebrate and honor an extraordinary chamber music formation. On this anniversary recording, Ensemble Obligat has expanded into a chamber orchestra with soloists to present Johannes Brahms' Serenade No. 1 and Louis Spohr's large Nonet in F major. These are two pieces that require a balance between soloistic leadership and overall sound, a quality that the ensemble embodies perfectly. Brahms' youthful work takes on a chamber-music-like sonority in this version. The Nonet of the "German Paganini" Louis Spohr, who broke exciting new ground in his time, benefits from the ensemble's harmonious spirit. © Genuin

Frivolous young ladies, sisters with suicidal desires, crows, a depressed wanderer, and many other strange characters meet in colorful musical garb on this Genuin debut recording of the lied duo Alice Lackner (mezzo soprano) and Imke Lichtwark (piano). Music by Schönberg and Zemlinsky, written for the legendary Überbrettl cabaret in Berlin, is combined with contemporary music by Sven Daigger, two of which were written specifically for this recording. Lackner and Lichtwark approach the art songs straddling all genres with seriousness and extraordinary lightness. Listeners can expect sharp character sketches ranging from passionate love to honky-tonk and the dark abysses of the soul. © Genuin

Samira Spiegel is an exceptional talent: she has won prizes at international competitions on both the violin and the piano! With Genuin, she now presents an exciting programme featuring music for both instruments inspired by Bach. On the piano, the works range from Franz Liszt's Fantasie und Fuge to Busoni's adaptation of the Chaconne and Francis Poulenc's Waltz-Improvisation to Damian Scholl's ... est un fleuve tranquille from 2013. On the violin, she juxtaposes Eugène Ysaÿe's fifth solo sonata, which is genuinely haunted by Bach, with the original Chaconne by the great Leipzig master. An adventurous and ludicrously virtuosic ride through styles and centuries! © Genuin

This Acelga Quintet's thematic recording is full of drama! It features original works and arrangements for wind quintet by Luciano Berio, Franz Danzi, Jacob Gade, Claude-Paul Taffanel, and Giuseppe Verdi. All works relate their own narrative, both musically and dramatically: from homicidal opera thrillers to hungover brawls in the backlot. With a diverse tonal palette and a love of detail, the highly virtuosic wind ensemble interprets music that is dear to them. The five young musicians have won prizes in various competitions, including the ARD Music Competition, and hold positions at universities or major orchestras. © Genuin

On this Genuin recording, these are the young clarinetist Joë Christophe and his piano partner Vincent Mussat on an emotional journey that passes through familiar and unfamiliar terrain and encounters sophistication, simplicity, passion, and tenderness. The prize-winning recording of the ARD Music Competition is also the duo's debut recording, which, in the selected works of the 20th and 21st centuries, proves to be highly versatile and rich in colors. In addition to music by Claude Debussy and Rebecca Clarke, the tracklist includes Mark Simpson's Three Pieces: A world premiere recording of the music written by the British composer as a commission for the ARD Music Competition. © Genuin

The Eliot Quartet has already been showered with prizes, including awards at the German Music Competition, the Mozart Competition in Salzburg, and the Melbourne Competition. This new recording presents two milestones of the string quartet repertoire: Ludwig van Beethoven's "Razumovsky"-Quartet, Op. 59 No. 1, and Sergei Prokofiev's thrilling Second Quartet. Both works deal with East European folklore, and the four musicians bring out their melodic colors and rhythmic peculiarities with great accuracy and homogeneity of sound. © Genuin

On his debut Genuin recording, Simon Luethy lets his nearly 300-year-old violin by Nicola Gagliano sing: The violinist, who made his Carnegie Hall debut back in 2017, plays works by Ludwig van Beethoven, Sergei Prokofiev, Henryk Wieniawski, and Franz Waxman – all highlights of the repertoire and touchstones for any young musician. Luethy plays the classic "Spring" Sonata and the bravura Carmen Fantasy with precise articulation and tonal beauty. In the sonatas, pianist Alexandra Troussova proves to be an equal partner, and in the virtuoso pieces she provides the young violinist with a rich-sounding backdrop. © Genuin

21 meters 60: that's the length of the tubes of the three instruments that give us an extraordinarily low-frequency experience on this new Genuin recording: Tubists Constantin Hartwig, Fabian Neckermann, and Steffen Schmid perform music from Monteverdi to the present on their trio's debut recording. Their creative arrangements combine a wide variety of styles and genres: Monteverdi's Canzonettas are given a completely new warmth and roundness. Astor Piazzolla's famous Libertango surprises us with pulsating rhythms and rough edges. And finally, the three tuba players take us to the cinema, to a tongue-in-cheek and breathtaking homage to Morricone. Our recommendation: take a deep breath and immerse yourself in this extraordinary world of sound! © Genuin

From the very first note, violinist Annette Unger's new Genuin recording will captivate you with an eclectic program featuring early and contemporary music from Dresden, full of electrifying contrasts. The oldest composition is by Bach contemporary Johann Georg Pisendel, while the most recent by Manfred Weiss was premiered by Annette Unger as recently as 2015. Aside from Pisendel's great work, all the other pieces in this production are world premiere recordings. Annette Unger, who plays flawlessly and with a wealth of color, presents a kaleidoscope of violinistic possibilities, compositional ideas, and intellectual approaches to music, intimately connected to the musical city of Dresden. © Genuin

"Erwachen" ("Awakening") is the title of tenor Robert Pohlers' solo debut recording on Genuin. Together with his pianist Friedrich Praetorius, he brings to life a unique compilation of lieder by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy: Songs of Nature, Life, and Love, sung mainly from the new edition of the Saxon Academy of Sciences in Leipzig. Why this is only now available is because the beautiful lieder are predominantly of private origin, and many of them were not originally intended for publication at all. With their intimate character, they are sonorous heart-to-heart messages, brought to us by the gentle voice of the former member of the Thomanerchor Robert Pohlers and the clear piano playing of Friedrich Praetorius. © Genuin

The young violinist Diamanda La Berge Dramm ventures to bridge music of the baroque with modern. In her Genuin debut album, the Dutch artist interweaves the music of Johann Sebastian Bach and John Cage. In her collaboration with singers Michelle O'Rourke and Katinka Fogh Vindelev, the boundaries between singing and instrumental playing dissolve, and the production of sound itself becomes a highly exciting parameter. From the layers of depth in Bach's great Chaconne to the cobweb-thin tapestry of John Cage's genre-bending compositions, the violinist takes us on an exciting sonic journey that reveals her to be an artist who is as mature as she is inquisitive. © Genuin

Just how much wonderful French music there is to discover from the period circa 1900 is revealed to us by Duo Avad on their new Genuin recital. Cellist Clemens Krieger and pianist Rieko Yoshizumi present original compositions and arrangements that reach far beyond the standard repertoire. The album features tiny treasures of little-known composers such as Gabriel Pierné and Louis Vierne as well as unknown works by the "greats" such as Debussy, Ravel and Fauré. Of particular note is the Soir triste by Lili Boulanger, who died much too early. Reconstructed by the ensemble, it is recorded here for the first time. This is intimate, impressionistic chamber music, elegantly and finely performed at the highest level. © Genuin

One of the most experimental New Music ensembles releases an impressive new album on GENUIN. The musicians of LUX:NM explore the world of the abyss, of spookiness, of sneers, and bring to life music, noises and sound collages all about the underworld and fallen angels. All works – by renowned composers such as Gordon Kampe and Jan Brauer as well as collaborative works by the collective – have been recorded for the first time. Dark radiance, benign blackness and nasty brightness: a dance of hell, most virtuosically and sensuously performed! © Genuin

One of the most brilliant works in the quartet literature, an exciting new composition based on it, and a virtuoso award-winning ensemble: the Aris Quartet's "Attacca" program bursts with energy from the very first moment. Highly acclaimed with awards such as "Echo Rising Stars" 2019, the Borletti-Buitoni Trust, and "New Generations Artists" 2018, the Aris Quartet juxtaposes Beethoven's "Russian" Quartet Op. 59 No. 1, with Gerald Resch's String Quartet No. 3. Gerald Resch's intention was to build a kind of "adjacent property" to Beethoven. The Aris Quartet vividly brings out both the connections and differences with its nuanced playing. © Genuin

The musicians working with soprano Maacha Deubner take us to exotic worlds of sound on their new recording, which is exclusively comprised of world premiere recordings.

In addition to Firsova's works, we make acquaintance with music by Sofia Gubaidulina, Edison Denisov, and Valentin Silvestrov. Maacha Deubner and her colleagues from the KAPmodern ensemble of the Kammerakademie Potsdam devote themselves to the invariably highly expressive music, performing it with great seriousness and mastery. © Genuin

In addition to the romantic music of Amy Beach, Louise Farrenc, and Clara Schumann, the program includes sparkling miniatures by Rebecca Clarke. Bartholomäi and her piano partner Verena Louis devote themselves to this too seldom performed repertoire with great attention to detail, chamber music intimacy, and richness of color.

Johann Graf's life dates are almost identical to those of Johann Sebastian Bach. The Rudolstadt court Kapellmeister was one of the most esteemed violinists of his time. Violinist Anne Schumann, violist Klaus Voigt, and harpsichordist Sebastian Knebel are now releasing a recording featuring his violin sonatas, which, although significant in music history, have rarely been performed. The works include passionate and virtuosic music in the Italian style, to which Klaus Voigt, in particular, gives a striking coloration: He supports the swinging and clear violin playing of Anne Schumann with the viola da spalla, a kind of small cello held with a strap in front of the belly. © Genuin

Johann Sebastian Bach is commonly understood as the starting point of the violin repertoire. But there was unaccompanied violin music before him, too - and it is truly exciting! The renowned baroque violinist Nadja Zwiener presents this music with her solo debut album on Genuin. Her inspired recording shows that Bach was able to build his repertoire on a great foundation: Composers such as Johann Georg Pisendel, Johann Westhoff, and even Arcangelo Corelli and Giuseppe Torelli wrote highly challenging works for the incredibly versatile instrument. The concertmistress of the English Concert and the Gaechinger Cantorey takes us on a fascinating journey. © Genuin
