Ludwig van Beethoven's Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 61, was written in 1806.
The work was premiered on December 23, 1806 in the Theater an der Wien in Vienna. Beethoven wrote the concerto for his colleague Franz Clement, a leading violinist of the day, who had earlier given him helpful advice on his opera Fidelio. The occasion was a benefit concert for Clement. However, the first printed edition (1808) was dedicated to Beethoven’s friend Stephan von Breuning. wikipedia

The catalog doesn't need a new version of Mendelssohn's Midsummer Night's Dream, but this one is sung and spoken in German (hence the use of Sommernachtstraum on the cover), which is rare. It's reminder that Mendelssohn was setting a German translation of Shakespeare. Harnoncourt's performance is very fine. His speakers and singers are first-rate, and he evokes both the dreamy relaxation of the play and its mercurial swiftness. Tempos are on the fast side, phrasing is crips without being terse, and the execution by the Chamber Orchestra of Europe could be mistaken for the Concertgebouw.

The cantata Nanjing Lament was originally composed for piano, alto and chorus when commissioned for the
sixtieth anniversary of the occupation of the city of Nanjing by the Japanese. That original version had its premiere at a Concert for Peace on December 7, 1997 at Carnegie Hall in New York. The Chinese National Symphony commissioned Jin to rewrite the cantata for full orchestra. The new version was scored for orchestra, pipa, dizi, children's chorus and regular chorus. It is this version that is presented here.

Recording of the ballet "Lady-Soubrette" is the last page of the unprecedented work — "Anthology of Russian Symphony Music", conductor Evgeni Svetlanov has been carrying out since the very beginning of his artistic career. At first all symphonic works by P. Tchaikovsky were recorded, the anthology was concluded with the recording of all works of the same genre by A. Glazunov. Ardent promoter of Russian and Soviet music Evgeni Svetlanov performed "a creative deed", the USSR Symphony Orchestra being his true ally. Evgeni Svetlanov has been the orchestra's chief conductor and artistic director since 1965.

Drawing on the Chopin model of alternating major and minor keys, as well as on Russian folk melodies, Kabalevsky’s 24 Preludes (1943–4) find the composer’s writing at its most distinctive. They are coupled with the early 4 Preludes (1927), in which the influence of Prokofiev is seldom far away, and the Preludes and Fugues (1958–9), six widely contrasting and expressive preludes yoked to their traditional fugal partners. This is the second recording of Kabalevsky’s piano music by Alexandre Dossin, First Prize and Special Prize winner at the 2003 Martha Argerich International Piano Competition. The three Piano Sonatas can be heard on Naxos.

One of Kremer's most commanding performances, both polished and full of flair, magnetically spontaneous from first to last. The rule now seems that all the finest versions of the Beethoven Violin Concerto are being recorded live… Here is another, for Gidon Kremer's Teldec recording offers one of his most commanding performances, both polished and full of flair, magnetically spontaneous from first to last. Rarely have I heard such consistently pure tone in this work as from Kremer, and his achievement is set in place the more clearly, when my other new version offers the first recording of this work using period instruments. Harnoncourt may have expanded his sights beyond the period performance movement, but the lessons he learnt then are most imaginatively applied in his work with COE, earlier in his Beethoven symphony cycle, later in the Missa solemnis, and now in this Concerto. If Kremer regularly has you registering new detail in the solo part, the orchestral writing too is superbly realized, with magical sounds in the slow movement in particular.

Artemis Quartet is maybe the most accomplished quartet of the past ten years, in my opinion much more perfect than, say the Prazak. They are making a recording of Beethoven complete cycle which will be, for sure, a new reference for the decade.

The Pianist Davide Milan Cabassi starts a recording path that will see him in the recording of four cd entirely dedicated to sonatas by Ludwig van Beethoven. The first of this series, recently published, contains the sonatas op. 10 and the Pathetique Op. 13. For the truth Cabassi had already recorded some sonatas of Beethoven (op. 110 and the two Op. 27), but it is now a more full-bodied and structured project to leave testimony of an author who is congenial, and which has also Concerts repertoire. Just in relation to the new record release takes place our meeting.
