Henri Herz was a phenomenon in 1830s Paris and 1940s America, but today his music is mostly forgotten. He wrote eight piano concertos, one of which was lost. Concertos 1, 3, 4, 5, 7 and 8 appear across two previous volumes of the Romantic Piano Concertos series. Here, Howard Shelley and the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra put on their finest dancing shoes to complete the cycle with Piano Concerto No.2 (the one with which Herz conquered America in 1846) and three extended fantasies.

The complete piano works of French perfectionist composer Paul Dukas mirror two very different masterpieces, one French- inspired (Variations) and the other of Germanic inspiration (Sonata). The Sonata is distinguished by its structure, grandeur and magnificence of tone. A disciple of Gabriel Tacchino, Jean-Claude Pennetier and Gyorgy Sebok, Olivier Chauzu (b. 1963) was trained in the Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique in Paris at the end of the 1980s. He tours France and the world playing as a soloist and in chamber music.

Although born forty years apart on opposite sides of the world, Edvard Grieg and Percy Grainger have much in common. Both left their native countries to gain access to the great, then dominant central European musical tradition, and both found their greatest compositional inspiration in folk music traditions rather than the Germanic approach. They met in 1906, and not surprisingly got along famously. The Danish-Swedish cellist Andreas Brantelid and his Norwegian chamber music partner Christian Ihle Hadland have teamed up for this program of cello works by these two like-minded composers.

After a meeting in 1906 in London, Grainger visited Grieg in Bergen the following year, only two months before the older composer passed away. The Danish-Swedish cellist Andreas Brantelid and his Norwegian chamber music partner Christian Ihle Hadland now turn to a programme of cello works by the two composers, opening with Grieg’s celebrated Cello Sonata. They also include less well-known pieces, however, such as the composer’s arrangement of the Allegretto from his third violin sonata, and an Andante con moto intended as part of a never completed piano trio, in which they are joined by the violinist Lars Bjørnkjær. Discovered after Grieg’s death, the piece would have to wait more than 70 years before receiving its first performance.

The intensely practical choral music of the young Latvian composer Ēriks Ešenvalds is steadily gaining appreciation across the world. The works on this new album owe their genesis to commissions from the United States, England and northern Europe and encompass ethereal expressions of uniquely arctic phenomena (listen for wine glasses turned—and tuned—to wondrously simple but devastating effect within the choral texture), American ballads and several works in the ‘Anglican tradition’, the fruits of the composer’s recent residency at Trinity College Cambridge. Trinity College Choir Cambridge here returns the compliment, as it were, with superlative performances of these varied and engaging works, all recorded under the watchful eye of the composer and conductor Stephen Layton.

Brian Ferneyhough born in Coventry in 1943 and recipient of the prestigious Siemens Prize in 2007 counts among the great musical challengers of our time. As an unyielding proponent of a steady refinement of musical perception, he doesn't shy away from mind-boggling structural aggregations and extreme technical and artistic demands on his musicians. In doing so he enjoys the support of a handpicked group of virtuosos, who regularly perform his compositions all over the world. One of the most prominent among those is pianist Nicolas Hodges, who, together with his colleague and friend Rolf Hind, presents, for the first time, Ferneyhough's complete works for piano. Between 1965 and 2013, seven works for piano solo or piano duo emerged from the composer's studio, all of them destined to captivate the listener's attention with complex musical adventures and regularly putting him into incredulous amazement.

In 1994, RICERCAR released a boxed set bringing together nearly all the works of Guillaume Lekeu (1870-1894), this prodigious Belgian composer who died prematurely at the age of 24. Admirer of Beethoven and Wagner, disciple of Franck, and protégé of Ysaÿe, Lekeu had, in his last compositions, opened a new way that was neither French nor Germanic. It is to this journey that this new edition invites you, starting with the earliest works, written at 15, to the masterpieces of 1893.

With his post-Kraftwerk output, electronic percussionist Wolfgang Flür embraced the music of his former crew with Yamo, a sound-alike project that released the Mouse on Mars-assisted album Time Pie in 1997. Since then, Flür's work has been under his own name, including the memoir I Was a Robot, which was published in 2000 and then immediately pulled as Kraftwerk and Flür went to court over some disputed stories within the book…
