The brilliant, Technicolor recordings of the Pavel Haas Quartet have won it an impressive array of awards since its inception in 2002. More will surely follow for this latest excursion into the works of Dvo ák. The playing is breathtakingly good, each performer maintaining their own personality and yet working together to conjure a special magic, whether in the sparkling furiant of the piano quintet No 2 in A major, Op 81 (with Boris Giltburg at his most mercurial), or the dreamy, song-like opening movement of the string quintet in E flat major, Op 97, redolent of the wide-open spaces of rural Iowa.

This vastly entertaining comic work centers around Kate, a talkative, shrewish woman who is avoided by everyone at the village dance. Angry, she announces that she would dance with the devil himself, and voila!, the Devil Marbuel–not-quite-Lucifer, but a “junior” devil–enters and carries her off to Hell. The clever shepherd Jirka offers to rescue her. In Hell, all the devils sit around playing cards, and Kate and Marbuel enter.

The recording of the Symphony No. 2 in B flat major, op. 4 (B 12) by Antonín Dvořák (1841–1904) played by the ensemble Musica Florea is part of a longer-term project, which aims to perform and subsequently release audio recordings of all nine symphonies by Antonín Dvořák in authentic interpretations on period instruments or copies of such instruments in the spirit of period performance practice. In the case of the Second Symphony, the performance will be of the original version, predating the revisions Dvořák made in connection with preparations for the world premiere in 1888. The recording will therefore give us a unique opportunity to get an authentic look at the quality of the composer’s work during an early phase of his creative development and to discover the departure point from which the novice composer developed his original symphonic style, refined over the following decades, and taking shape as masterpieces that are among the supreme works in the context of their period.

Globalization creates what physicists and chemists call increased entropy. Skel breaks down, flows flow freely, new orders and new disorder occur. It brings challenges and enrichments. This has always been the classical music where musicians have crossed borders for centuries to find income and good living conditions. What kind of enrichment this year causes in our domestic little spirit dam can be studied by looking at the Danish chamber ensembles, which together with our energetic organ orchestras ensure that at least live classical music is played throughout Denmark. From Armenia via Germany, Pianist Marianna Shirinyan came to Denmark 15 years ago and got a job in the Esbjerg Ensemble.

With a well-judged recording that balances both instruments justly, if occasionally a little sharply, …only the relatively short playing time lets things down at all. Set against that, though, are the world premières of attractive, uncontentious, and warmly human music.

Dvorak’s four piano trios are some of the greatest examples of late 19th-century chamber music, and have remained repertoire favorites to this day. His Piano Trio No. 1 in B flat major incorporates melancholy, serenity and vivid excitement in equal measure, while the Piano Trio No. 2 in G minor though written at a time of personal tragedy for Dvorak, achieves a triumphant and emphatic conclusion. Fanfare said of the first volume of Trios, ‘I would urge you with special pleading to acquire this release for what may well be the best Dvorak ‘Dumky’ on disc ever.’ Combining technical mastery, expressive depth and performance experience, pianist Alon Goldstein, violinist Ilya Kaler and cellist Amit Peled have joined forces to form one of the most exciting trios on the international scene.

It says much for the Russian pianist Rustem Hayroudinoff that he gives such a command- ing performance of the Dvorák Piano Concerto, always a tricky work to play thanks to unpianistic piano writing. Sviatoslav Richter, after making his classic recording with Carlos Kleiber, pronounced that it was the most difficult concerto he had ever tackled but somehow he made the original, unrevised piano-writing – which he insisted on using – sound totally convincing.

With adventurous crossover projects coming one after another from Yo-Yo Ma, it's nice to be able to revisit some of the performances that brought him to the top of the heap among cellists and among classical musicians in general. This disc includes Dvorák performances by Ma from various 1990s discs, with his lovely 1995 reading of the Cello Concerto in B minor, with Kurt Masur leading the New York Philharmonic, as the centerpiece.
