Couperin: Harpsichord Works

Tilman Skowroneck

Classical - Released November 5, 2021 | TYXart

Hi-Res
François Couperin (1668–1733) published his first book of Pièces de clavecin - containing five suites or, as he called them, Ordres, for harpsichord - in 1713. This was followed by his harpsichord method L’Art de toucher le clavecin in 1716, and a second book of harpsichord pieces in 1717 (two more books followed in 1722 and 1730).

Steffen Wolf: Der Vogelsang

Kizuna-Quartett

Classical - Released October 1, 2021 | TYXart

Hi-Res
Christoph Martin Wieland's Der Vogelsang oder die drey Lehren first appeared in March of 1778 in the literary-political magazine “Der Teutsche Merkur”, which he edited, with the note “based on the Lays de l'Oiselet in Fabliaux et Contes etc. Vol. 1. p. 179”, referring to a French poem from the 13th century. Der Vogelsang is above all a wonderfully light and yet precisely balanced poetic work, the verses of which come across as naturally as if they weren’t verses at all. Nothing is searched for, nothing is "for the sake of rhyming". In terms of content, Der Vogelsang is, if you like, a didactic piece, but one that is at odds with common moral teachings: whoever has something only deserves to have it if he knows how to use it – which in this case means to appreciate its beauty by enjoying it. The story goes like this. A person foolish both in the intellectual and the emotional sense (Hans) has come in possession of a wonderful piece of land – a castle with a park. He walks around this castle and park and does not recognize the beauty surrounding him. The park has a soul: a little bird sings its songs there – magical songs, because when they cease to sound, the park dies. Hans hears what the bird is singing, and at first finds it entertaining but irrelevant, and later, annoying. He catches the bird in order to sell it for a lot of money. The bird asks for its life in vain, then offers him a deal: its life for three good lessons. © Tyxart

Tango sentimentale

Maximilian Spenger

Chamber Music - Released July 16, 2021 | TYXart

Hi-Res
The “Tango Sentimentale” ensemble – Maximilian Spenger, Susanne Gargerle (First Violins), Isolde Lehrmann (Second Violin), David Ott, Silvia Cempiny (Violoncellos), Thomas Jauch , Manuel Lopez, Hermann Weindorf (Piano & Percussion) – succeeds in fusing classical and modern music in one project. Tango … play between passion and melancholy dance of seduction, devotion and distance lure of fascination and eroticism Moments in the style of traditional tangos by Astor Piazzolla and Sebastian Piana meet modern compositions of the present. In such encounters of a very special kind, familiar elements of a bygone era combine with the forever enduring wishes, dreams and desires in the here and now. Played with abandon with accordion and string quintet, “Tango Sentimentale” takes us into a world of sound full of emotions and fantasy. © Tyxart

Haas, Renner & Reger: Works for Violin & Organ

Sreten Krstic

Classical - Released July 2, 2021 | TYXart

Hi-Res
One can only do justice to Joseph Haas’ oeuvre by judging it by what he himself said about the purpose of music: ”Music is to delight, not offend; it is to shake up, not shatter; it is to refine, not trivialize”. Together with Paul Hindemith and Heinrich Burkard, Joseph Haas co-founded the “Donaueschinger internationale Kammermusikfeste für Neue Musik” (Donaueschingen International Chamber Music Festival for New Music) in 1921. The works show the mastery of variation and the peculiarities of the compositional style of Joseph Haas. Joseph Renner studied organ and composition with Joseph Rheinberger in Munich and worked mainly in Regensburg/Bavaria. He was particularly appreciated by his contemporaries as a composer of spiritual and organ works. Der geigende Eremit from Max Reger's Böcklin-Suite as program music can be heard on this album, as one of his best-known works, and from the point of view of its content it is almost suitable for a version for violin and organ. These works for violin and organ, and organ solo, by Joseph Haas (1879—1960), Max Reger (1873—1916) and Josef Renner, jun. (1868—1934) are very interesting musical oeuvres, interpreted by internationally well-known artists Sreten Krstic, Violin, Norbert Düchtel and Ludwig Schmitt, Organ. © Toccata Classics

Brahms: Clarinet Sonatas, Op. 120 & Other Works

Ron Selka

Chamber Music - Released May 7, 2021 | TYXart

A match made by their teachers, Ron Selka and Aviram Reichert have been collaborating for over 30 years. Starting in high school with a successful audition performance for the IDF Outstanding Musician program, they have performed numerous programs in duo recitals in Israel, the United States and South Korea, as well as chamber music concerts with many prominent musicians. This release is a milestone in a long musical journey traversed together. With this glorious complementary pair of clarinet sonatas, Brahms pays tribute to Mühlfeld’s variegated tone palette, the first sonata sombre and rapturous, the second mellow and lyrical, together covering every possible nuance of color and mood, lyrical, rich in texture and melodic invention. Richard Mühlfeld was principal clarinetist of the Meiningen Orchestra (Germany), whose playing instantly captivated Brahms when he first heard him play in early 1891. Although Beethoven’s shadow may have loomed large over Brahms’s instrumental music, Brahms was considerably more relaxed in composing for the voice. From his earliest youth to his final composition, Vier ernste Gesänge, song-writing stood at the very heart of his work, free from the uncompromising self-critical scrutiny to which he subjected his instrumental works. © Tyxart

Spirit of Improvisation

Bernhard Parz

Classical - Released April 16, 2021 | TYXart

Hi-Res
What do the three composers on this album, who come from such different eras, have in common? They all broke new ground, both in terms of piano-playing technique and musically. All three developed their works directly, almost improvisationally, on the instrument. And for all three of them, light-heartedness and the joy of playing the instrument are at the forefront of their works. And it is this joy of playing and light-heartedness that also characterize the essence of this recording, whose basic idea was to “capture” the “intuitively musical“ in a recording, i.e. to bring the improvisational spirit of these pieces to life. Thus, this album is a snapshot, as it were, that captures something that is alive like a picture captures movement. © Tyxart

Rachmaninoff: Piano Sonata No. 2, Op. 36 & 10 Preludes, Op. 23

Emre Yavuz

Classical - Released November 6, 2020 | TYXart

Hi-Res
Two giant works: the lesser played 1913 version of Op. 36, Piano Sonata No. 2, an epic piece in the truest sense of the word and Op. 23, 10 Preludes, an intimate cycle, both challenge the physical and psychological limits of the player and the listener. With the help of the Bösendorfer Concert Grand 280VC – Vienna Concert this recording dives deep into the rich, orchestral sound world, as well as the dark nature of these works, loaded with fine details, technical and emotional extremities, candid moments and explosivity. Emre Yavuz was born in 1990 in Izmir, Turkey. His talent for learning at a rapid pace was evident at an early age, eventually leading to a musical education. He started his education in music in 1998 under the “Educational Act for Prodigy Children”, studying with Kamuran Gündemir in Ankara. He continued his studies with Fazil Say and Sanem Berkalp at the Bilkent University, where he also studied composition. Later studying with Roland Batik in Vienna, Karl-Heinz Kämmerling in Hannover, and with Arie Vardi in Hannover and Tel Aviv. Starting at an early age Yavuz played with major orchestras performing concertos of Mozart, Beethoven, Chopin, Saint-Saëns, Tchaikovsky and Rachmaninoff. With his interpretations of Chopin he won prizes in Sicily in 2007, and in Vienna in 2010. He became the first piano student of the Vienna Conservatory to graduate with full grades upon his final recital, performing works by Beethoven, Saygun and Rachmaninoff. In 2013 he performed Beethoven’s Concerto No. 3 under the conduction of Zubin Mehta. Emre has competed in a number of competitions, winning prizes internationally. © Tyxart
