Chamber Music - To be released October 2, 2020 | Genuin

Following two albums featuring Schubert, Shostakovich, and Beethoven, the Aris Quartet, one of the leading award-winning chamber music ensembles of recent years, has put Johannes Brahms on the program of its third Genuin-Aufnahme. Included are two key works of the chamber music literature of the 19th century: the String Quartet in C minor, dating from the early period of maturity, is characterized by how the composer dealt with personal losses and how he overcame great doubts. The Clarinet Quintet is one of Brahms' last works ever. A swan song to his oeuvre, perhaps even to Romanticism in general. Enchantingly beautiful playing by a magnificent ensemble! © Genuin

Booklet
Seven composers from four continents and three centuries, together with the music of Johann Sebastian Bach: this is the extraordinary repertoire with which the Lux Nova Duo presents itself on its new Genuin recording. Lydia Schmidl (accordion) and Jorge Paz Verastegui (guitar) do not attempt saintly reverence, but search, sense, explore Bach and echoes of his music with joy and virtuosity in a wide range of works. There are Rameau's exquisite harmonies, a graceful and witty homage by Shostakovich, South American spices by Alejandro Núñez Allauca, exciting fragments by Tristan Xavier Köster and much more. A programme for discoverers and adventurers! © Genuin

Serbian pianist Mirjana Rajić and clarinetist Ognjen Popović serve up an exciting program of duo compositions on their new Genuin programme, the second by Mirjana Rajić. Both prizewinners of numerous competitions travel musically throughout Europe and perform music by Camille Saint-Saëns, Norbert Burgmüller, Malcolm Arnold, and, last but not least, original compositions by Ognjen Popović. The range extends from sonata to character piece; the oldest piece is almost 200 years old, the youngest is from 2018. © Genuin

"Con moto" is the Genuin debut of cellist Friedrich Thiele, who received an almost unbelievable number of major prizes in 2019: he won the ARD Music Competition, the German Music Competition, and in Markneukirchen. On this recital, which is released in cooperation with the German Music Council, the up-and-coming star presents a classical recital program. This ranges from Brahms' profound F-Major Sonata to Dutilleux' Trois Strophes and Wieniawski's virtuoso delicacy Scherzo-Tarantelle, originally written for violin. One gets to know the young musician from every angle and admires his versatile tone and technical superiority. © Genuin

Booklet
The name Hitchcock not only stands for the most famous of all British film directors, but for an important family of English instrument makers from England as well. Only a few of these sonorous and extravagant keyboard instruments have survived. The multi-stringed spinet No. 1379 from the Telemann Museum in Hamburg, with its black keys elaborately set in white ivory, can now be heard for the first time in a recording. The Hitchcock Trio invites you to a typical middle-class salon concert as was customary throughout Europe at the end of the 18th century. Selected London compositions by Burney, Geminiani, Abel, and Loeillet (a celebrated harpsichordist of his time), as well as works by the famous Hamburg composers Telemann and Mattheson, are featured. The trio, whose members include Anke Dennert (London spinet from 1730), Gabriele Steinfeld (South German baroque violin), and Simone Eckert (Hamburg Tielke gamba from 1685), allow the expressive sounding Hitchcock spinet to shine, both as a solo instrument and in a chamber music setting. © Genuin

The star tenor Daniel Behle sings for the first time here in a Genuin production. Together with the orchestra of the Kammeroper München, he interprets two of the most beautiful song cycles ever, namely Franz Schubert's Schwanengesang and Robert Schumann's Dichterliebe. In both cycles, Alexander Krampe transforms the original piano accompaniment into an exciting orchestral arrangement. This is best supported by the sonorous and supple voice of Daniel Behle: from the delicate weaving of Schubert's Liebesbotschaft to the pale surfaces of his Doppelgänger to the cutting rhythms of Schumann's Die alten, bösen Lieder. © Genuin

On his first Genuin project, the versatile pianist Alexey Lebedev demonstrates how broadly one can grasp the concept of romanticism. The prizewinner of international competitions spans a wide range of well-known and loved works of the 19th century here: from Ludwig van Beethoven's Sonatas Op. 109 and Op. 110 to the nocturnes and a polonaise by Frédéric Chopin and Franz Liszt's Dante Sonata. The eloquence of Beethoven's late works, Chopin’s romantic character pieces, and Liszt's literary and musical reflections, together with Lebedev's clear interpretation, allow the boundaries between classical and romantic, and between absolute and program music to merge! © Genuin

Hans-Peter and Volker Stenzl enable us to experience a historic moment in their live recording from the Ehrbar Saal in Vienna. On two original Ehrbar grand pianos, they play Johannes Brahms' original version of his 4th Symphony, as performed in the eponymous hall for friends of the composer in 1885. This testimony to a fading time is accompanied by another work of irreversible finality, Maurice Ravel's tone poem La Valse. Like no other dance, the waltz, which Ravel shatters to bits and Brahms only hints at in finale, defined the 19th century. A quasi volcanic orchestral dance by one of the best piano duos in the world! © Genuin

The history of fantasy stretches back over centuries and dates back to the Renaissance. Almost all great composers tried their hand at this genre, each giving it a personal touch. With fantasies by Frédéric Chopin, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy, and Robert Schumann, Amit Yahav presents several highlights of this musical form on his new album. The Israeli pianist completed his doctorate in London on the subject of Chopin and chose for this recording, among others, the composer's posthumously published Fantaisie Impromptu, Op. 66 from a manuscript with Chopin's handwriting - a worthwhile discovery! © Genuin

Yvonne Smeulers, the internationally second album on Genuin: two milestones of the repertoire, the violin concertos by Ludwig van Beethoven and Alban Berg. The Dutch virtuoso is thereby building on the success of her highly praised first recording with works by Eugène Ysaÿe. The two violin concertos play a unique role in the repertoire, putting musical sense before virtuosity, content before external appearance. Beethoven and Berg combine improvisational lightness with depth. Yvonne Smeulers crosses broad horizons in her new recording, which is deeply serious, but also full of exuberant musical joy. © Genuin

Atmospheric music from the Swiss mountains with late-romantic echoes, impressionism, and new compositional techniques - that's what Mirjam Lötscher's debut recording "Sounds of Lucerne" offers. Together with pianist Thomas Wise, she presents sonatas and fantasies for flute and piano by Reto Stadelmann and Joseph Lauber - two Swiss composers of the 20th and 21st centuries who fuse the deeply rooted traditions of the Alpine country with contemporary elements to create their own forms of musical expression. Stadelmann's works and Lauber's Fantaisie pour flûte et piano have been recorded here for the first time - a discovery not only for Swiss classical music lovers! © Genuin

Two highly awarded German musicians present themselves on Genuin with a powerful Shostakovich programme: The sisters Anouchka (cello) and Katharina Hack (piano) combine the early Cello Sonata, Op. 40, and a late work, the Viola Sonata, Op. 147. It is a fascinating experiment that not only takes into account the life of the Russian composer, but also focuses on his vital, rousing music. For Shostakovich's wonderfully sentimental Prelude for two cellos and piano, the sisters receive the support of an illustrious guest: the star cellist Gautier Capuçon joins in with a velvety tone. © Genuin

The flute, one of the most versatile instruments of all, is the focus of the new Genuin recording by Japanese flutist Atsuko Koga. The winner of international competitions presents a distinctive mixture of original compositions and arrangements together with cellist Georgiy Lomakov that range from Telemann and Beethoven to Villa-Lobos and world premiere recordings by Minako Tokuyama. Whether it is birdsong, soulful cantilenas, virtuoso passagework, or noisy musical magic, the choice of works and the clear, vibrant interpretations of the two artists demonstrate the flute's and cello's many facets. © Genuin

Bassoonist Theo Plath is currently the talk of the town. After winning the 2018 German Music Competition, which awarded him this Primavera Edition prizewinner album, he also impressed audiences at the 2019 ARD Music Competition.

On his solo debut recording, he combines Romantic bassoon concertos by Carl Maria von Weber and Bernhard Crusell with modern French compositions by Marcel Bitsch and André Jolivet. Accompanied by the Deutsche Radio Philharmonie under the baton of Leo McFall, he lets the broad spectrum of the bassoon's expressive possibilities resound, from melancholic lyricism to witty charm. © Genuin

Shinnosuke Inugai is an exceptional artist: not only has he won numerous competitions and possesses a vast repertoire; the young Japanese pianist feels at home in jazz as well as in classical music and has a special gift for improvisation. Therefore, what could be more natural for Inugai than to record his own music on his new Genuin programme in addition to orchestral piano music from early Romanticism to Classical Modernism? Stravinsky, Schumann, Albéniz, and Scriabin frame sparkling improvisations in colorful interpretations: from playing with white keys to the reverberation of distant bells to echoes of folk music – utterly enchanting! © Genuin

Johann Sebastian Bach composed timeless music for solo instruments and invented his own musical worlds for violin, violoncello, flute⁠ - wonderful, pure architectural beauty. For his Genuin recital, the saxophonist Arno Bornkamp has arranged solo sonatas by Bach, choosing a different register for each work by using the baritone, soprano and alto saxophones. The symbiosis between instrument and music seems ideal, and, guided by the principles of historical performance practice, the co-founder of the Aurelia Saxophone Quartet plays with great ease and flow. © Genuin

The mythical emotional worlds of Romanticism and the flowing imagery of Impressionism unite on the new recording by the award-winning Queens Duo, creating an enchanting world of sound. Flutist Verena Beatrix Schulte and harpist Hanna Rabe develop an expressiveness full of magic and sheer virtuosity with arrangements that are partly their own. From the very first notes of Schumann's Romances, flute and harp entwine, merging into one another in the floating sounds of Debussy's Faun and with exquisite elegance in Caplet. With these delicately interpreted snapshots between dream and reality, the two young musicians create surprises and skilfully put the traditional image of a flute-harp duo in a new light. © Genuin
