“Three men, three pianos, one emotion – jazz”. These were the words with which German national TV news succinctly summed up the piano summit on 31st May 2016 in a sold-out main hall of the Berlin Philharmonie – a concert which can now be experienced exclusively on vinyl. And the TV news reporter continued: “Iiro Rantala, Leszek Możdżer, Michael Wollny. Each in a class of his own. Together, they’re a miracle”. Is there perhaps an element of déjà vu in this story? Yes, certainly.

Breathtaking virtuosity flows seamlessly with expansive lyrical passages and fiendish passagework in this commanding performance by Arabella Steinbacher of the restless and technically demanding violin concertos of Britten and Hindemith in this new release from PENTATONE, with the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin conducted by Vladimir Jurowski.

The musical chameleon Emil Nikolaus von Reznicek is one of the late German Romantic composers, whose multifaceted style makes him difficult to classify. Prior to the inauguration of CPO's grand edition of Reznicek's major works a few years ago, he was known to classical music fans solely as the composer of the Donna Diana Overture. In the meantime things have changed: on our many Reznicek releases listeners can experience for themselves all the Stunts seriously intended ones, mind you performed by this master of metamorphosis.

Studio Master, Official Digital Download | Artwork: Digital booklet

For his first solo album, the clarinetist Raphaël Sévère has chosen Weber’s Concerto op.73, recorded live at a concert in the Berlin Philharmonie with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester under the direction of Aziz Shokhakimov. He couples this with the ‘Silvana’ Variations op.33 and the Grand duo concertant op.48 alongside the pianist Jean-Frédéric Neuburger. These three works born of the friendship between the virtuoso Heinrich Baermann and the precursor of Romanticism Weber display the clarinet at its most lyrical.

Athalia, first performed in Oxford in 1733 was enthusiastically received, bar the comment by a crusty academic complaining of ‘Handel and (his lowsy Crew) a great number of forreign fidlers’. All current recordings are of this version, perhaps explaining why Paul Goodwin chose Handel’s London revival from 1735.

Dayramir Gonzalez - The Grand Concourse (2018)
Afro-Cuban Jazz, Contemporary Classical | 1:12:13 | WEB FLAC (tracks) | 460 MB
Label: Machat Records

Dayramir Gonzalez's latest album The Grand Concourse is defined by the voyage of a young artist from Havana, whose creation of musical works shines a light on the gems of traditional Cuban sentiments, contemporary Afro-Cuban jazz and the vanguard sounds of New York City. In his through-composed song "Situaciones en 12/8", the compulsive bass motif is the engine that drives the layering melodies, while "Sencillez" is a modern commentary on Cuban musical history of the late 19th century. A Tribute to Buena Vista Social Club, Mozart, and John Coltrane mixed with Dayramir's spices.
