Label: Le Palais des Dégustateurs

It is a great pleasure for Le Palais des Dugustateurs to produce Trio Arc’s first recording (featuring Irina Chkourindina on piano, and Ardina and Jan Nehring on strings). This programming of this recording is very cleverly though out, featuring three trios, including Beethoven’s famous trio, “The Spirits,” Frank Martin’s Trio on Irish melodies, and Brahms’ Second Trio. You will be sensitive to the sincerity of musicians who do not force, and do not fall into any easy excesses. You will be convinced by their sober interpretation, without chatter, very precise and which remains always musical.

Classical | WEB FLAC (tracks) & d. booklet | 241 MB
Label: Navona | Tracks: 24 | Time: 281:28 min

In this stunning tour through the concerti of Beethoven’s early and middle periods, pianist Eliane Rodrigues captivates her listeners with graceful keyboard virtuosity, accompanied by the renowned St. Petersburg State Orchestra, Maestro Walter Proost at the podium. The technicality is so precise, the performance so true to period, that one might think the composer himself was at the piano. The album includes Beethoven’s five finished piano concertos, including the popular No. 5, “Emperor,” and No. 2, for which Rodrigues prepared her own masterful cadenza.
Walter Gieseking, Philharmonia Orchestra, Herbert von Karajan - Mozart, Beethoven: Philharmonia Wind Quartet (1996)

Genre: Classical | Label: Testament | Catalog: SBT 1091

Walter Gieseking is joined by stellar wind players, including the great hornist Dennis Brain; and the Quintets have a gleaming, robust quality that make them irresistible. They were recorded in the mid- 1950s, a time when Gieseking sometimes operated on automatic pilot, but here he sounds involved and fluent; the keyboard part played with aristocratic grace and, where appropriate, sparkling high spirits. The filler is one of Herbert von Karajan's few successful Mozart recordings, aided immeasurably by the expert first-desk soloists of the Philharmonia.

This recording, by two generations of musicians from the Kuijken family (Veronica, Sigiswald, Sara and Wieland Kuijken), along with Sigiswald's wife Marleen Thiers, was made with so-called 'modern' instruments. Although their name is generally linked with 'period performance practice', listeners should not expect or seek a deliberate, specific 'historic' tendency in this recording.
