Friedrich Wilhelm Rust (6 July 1739 – 28 February 1796) was a German violinist, pianist and composer. His music, especially the compositions for keyboard, can be seen as the missing link between the ‘sentimental style’ of composers like Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach and the classical style of composers like Haydn, Mozart and Beethoven. German born harpsichord, clavichord and fortepiano player Jermaine Sprosse is a specialist in the ‘galant’ repertoire, particularly the music of the Bach sons and their circle.

The Re-Sound Beethoven collection brings the symphonies of Beethoven back to the locations of their Viennese premieres. Four of the six venues where first performances of one or more of the nine symphonies were held still exist today, as do the eight Viennese halls and theaters where the composer’s orchestral works were performed in his lifetime. The orchestral forces of the Wiener Akademie corresponds in size and instrumentarium to those used by the composer. The producer Stephan Reh strives to reproduce the specific acoustical qualities of each room.

You probably didn’t think you’d ever hear the venerable Vienna Philharmonic play music from the Harry Potter films. However, they make a fine job of “Hedwig’s Theme” as part of a let-your-hair-down summer program under the baton of Christoph Eschenbach and themed around figures from the world of fairy-tale and fantasy. Renée Fleming, in voluptuous voice, is luxury casting for a sequence of songs and arias—with one of her party pieces, Rusalka’s “Song to the Moon”, making a welcome appearance.

A monument of chamber music: The string quartet was of central importance to Bartók throughout his career. His six quartets were written (between 1907 and 1939) at crucial turning points in the composer's creative development. From the elegiac tone of Quartet no.1 (reflecting an unhappy love affair) to the sadness and wry parody of no.6, composed on the eve of World War II, by way of the mirror forms and atmospheric 'night music' of nos.4 and 5, they represent perhaps the biggest interpretative challenge in the genre alongside the Beethoven quartets.

The Sonata D664: an example of Schubert's fine craftsmanship despite being in the shadow of the giant, Beethoven. Only nine years later, Schubert, just 31 years old, produced what was, already, his last sonata (D960), just a few weeks before his shockingly premature death. It would take many decades for these masterpieces to gain the same consideration as the late symphonies of Mozart or Beethoven’s Op.132 but this music is now cherished by today’s artists – among them Javier Perianes, who here returns to Schubert after a remarkable first volume that enjoyed great success with the public.

Ian Watson and Susanna Ogata's acclaimed series on Coro Connections continues with the third album in their exploration of Beethoven's Sonatas for fortepiano and violin.

The Orchestre d'Auvergne and Aparté continue their partnership with this new recording dedicated to masterpieces of the romantic repertoire. Beethoven's Quartet No. 11, Op. 95 and No. 14, Op. 131 belong to the works designed for the private interpretation and inner listening of the happy few music-connoisseurs. Those two chamber music scores came from the mind of a digger of new sounds. The question of the quartets' reception has to be updated with actual terms and their arrangement for string orchestra by Gustav Mahler reminds subtly that the public of these works grows over time. The arrangement process shows also admiration and preserves music's eternal youth for which the Orchestre d'Auvergne and its conductor Roberto Forés Veses play the role of a courier.
