"…All three works are superbly played here by the brilliantly nimble Stefan Schilli, and Mariss Jansons and the Bavarian orchestra give him vivid support. I cannot think of a more enticing triptych of modern oboe concertos from any other source." ~Grammophone

Pergolesi's Stabat Mater, his achingly lovely swan song, was most likely written with two male singers in mind. Yet it's not often recorded that way, and the present release, with a genuine male soprano and alto, represents something rarer still, perhaps because not a lot of male singers can pull off the higher ranges convincingly without belting. Both the singers are billed as countertenors on the album, but Romanian-born Valer Barna-Sabadus, who looks like he just stepped out of a rock & roll dive, is a true soprano. Check out his soaring lines in the "Cujus animan," track 2, for the real news on this album. It's not that he delivers operatic power; plenty of countertenors can do that. It's the lightness and balance – even a certain soberness – that fit the work to its intended church ambiance.

Dmitri Kitayenko has been Music Advisor of the Zagreb Philharmonic Orchestra since the 2011/12 season. And if there is something with which Maestro Kitayenko has a special affinity, it is the Russian repertoire. It was not surprising, therefore, that he decided on Stravinsky for the first recording of this cooperation between the Orchestra and the Oehms Classics label. This recording includes Stravinskys very first work, the Symphony in E-flat major, as well as the rarely performed Suites 1 &2 orchestrated by Stravinsky during the years 1921 and 1925. These works for chamber orchestra, however, were originally composed from 1914 to 1920 during the composers years of exile in Switzerland. The Zagreb Philharmonic is an orchestra boasting a 147-year-old tradition of distinguished performing in Zagreb and Croatia. It has been a promoter of the art of music across Croatia as well as the countrys cultural ambassacdor in the world.

“It has long been known that William Youn has joined the ranks of the world’s leading Mozart and Chopin interpre-ters. The complete recording of the Mozart piano sona-tas, made for the Oehms label by the South Korean pia-nist based in Munich, is already setting new standards of excellence in their interpretation on the modern grand piano.”

Richard Strauss was not yet 25 when he confronted death in musical terms. However, Death and Transfiguration was not created, as often supposed, as a more or less autobiographical report following a severe illness, but as a pictorial attempt at portraying the final moments of human existence in musical. In From Italy, the twenty-year-old Strauss reflects on a trip to Italy in which he experienced at first hand the beauties of nature and the Roman ruins. Both works are now brought together as Part 5 of the Strauss cycle with Sebastian Weigle on Oehms Classics.

A work caught the attention of musici-ans during the late 1990s a Christmas Oratorio by C. H. Graun. The only known copy of it was being housed in the Library of Con-gress in Washington, D.C. But it has so far been impossible to determine either the name of the manuscript copyist or an exact dating of the work and copy. There are many indications that this is a work from the composers phase prior to his years in Berlin. After The Death of Jesus, Thomas Grop-per and his Arcis Vocalists now proudly present the second oratorio of Graun as a CD production for Oehms Classics.

This is one of the few recordings of Josef Suk‘s rarely performed Symphony, with which the composer came to terms with personal blows of fate, captured in this recording with sensitivity and meticulous detail. This production marks the beginning of a highly promising collaboration between the Essen Philharmonic and Oehms Classics. Meyerbeer‘s Le prophète has already been planned for 2018

Michael Endres plays a wide-ranging repertoire including such rarely performed composers as Leopold Godowsky, Gabriel Fauré, Charles Ives and Eduard Tubin. The leading US critic Richard Dyer (Boston Globe) described Endres as 'one of the most interesting pianists who appear nowadays on CD'. Michael Endres has recorded an equally wide-ranging repertoire for Oehms Classics, including CDs with works of Schumann, Mendelssohn, Gershwin, Weber and the sonatas of Arnold Bax.

The world premieres of Iolanta and The Nutcracker took place on 18 December 1892 at St. Petersburg’s Mariinsky Theatre. “The execution of both,” wrote the composer to his brother Anatoly the next day, “was magnificent, and that of the ballet perhaps too magnificent – its brilliance made one’s eyes tired.” Gustav Mahler conducted the first performance of the one-act opera outside Russia on 3 January 1893 in Hamburg and also directed the Viennese premiere of Iolanta on 22 March 1900.
