    Re: Classical Music Only | What You're Listening to Now, Or Very Recently | Any Mediums :

    Jean-Marie Leclair - Violin Concerto Op. 7
    Les Muffatti, Peter Van Heyghen
    Luis Otavio Santos, violin
    Qobuz 24/96




    This is a recommendation of Cédric, my amp maker.
    As usual, an exceedingly good recording.
    But it is more than that.
    It is catching music, played with vigour.
    Recommended by me also!

    Re: Classical Music Only | What You're Listening to Now, Or Very Recently | Any Mediums :

    Mozart / Beethoven - Quintets for Piano and Winds
    Ensemble Dialoghi
    Qobuz 24/96




    I was a bit hesitant, watching the cover.
    But "Stereoplay", one of the leading German magazines, encouraged me to listen to it.
    And it is fantastic!
    What a good recording!
    The playing is equally top notch.

    Re: Classical Music Only | What You're Listening to Now, Or Very Recently | Any Mediums :

    Mendelssohn - IN TIME - Violin Concerto & Octet
    Anima Eterna Brugge, Jakob Lehmann
    Chouchane Siranossian, violin




    Our beloved Concertgebouw Orchestra (the one from Bruges, where we are members) had to do it with young (assistent and guest) conductors last year.
    Van Immerseel had a liver transplant, but he's alive and kicking again now.
    Nevertheless, he is looking for the survival of his fantastic orchestra into the next decades, this with fresh blood.
    This album is the first recording with new talent leading Anima Eterna.
    We attended a concert earlier this year (Beethoven's 9th), and we rest assured: there is a future for this orchestra!

    This was recording of the month in "Stereoplay".

    Chouchane Siranossian is a rising star of the baroque and classical violin, Jakob Lehmann a virtuoso violinist and orchestral director who frequently conducts Anima Eterna. Together, they embody what the Bruges orchestra and its founder, Jos van Immerseel, have decided to call the ‘Next Generation Anima Eterna’... Today they are presenting Mendelssohn’s Violin Concerto in its original version. “We wanted to take a look into Mendelssohn’s workshop. He struggled with his self-diagnosed ‘revision disease’ and always strove to work hard on himself and his creations” says Jakob Lehmann. Chouchane Siranossian keeps on : “It was a fascinating experience for me to discover historical research and its implementation on period instruments in collaboration with Anima Eterna Brugge. In my interpretation, I used exclusively the fingerings, bowings and other performance markings of Ferdinand David and Joseph Joachim, both of whom rehearsed the work with the composer.”
    This recording is rounded off with the Octet, also in its original version, which is longer and has many alterations in instrumentation, harmony and articulation... © Alpha Classics

    Re: Classical Music Only | What You're Listening to Now, Or Very Recently | Any Mediums :

    Schnittke - Vasks - Pärt - The Invisible Link
    Maya Fridman & Daniël Kool
    trptk label




    The Schnittke is already quite something, the Vasks is an amazing solo work, and the Pärt (Fratres) was never more intensely performed (and better recorded) than on this album.
    Looking forward to download the 5.0 version in the future.

    Anton Bruckner - Symphony no. 8
    Netherlands Radio Philharmonic Orchestra, Jaap van Zweden




    Fantastic music of course, but it is played magnificently here.
    Probably my top choice of all the versions I own.
    Splendid 5.0 sound.

    Myaskovsky, Shebalin & Nechaev - Violin Sonatas
    Sasha Rozhdestvensky, violin
    Viktoria Postnikova, piano
    Qobuz 24/96




    To tell you the truth, I had never heard of these composers.
    But as Hifi Critic recommended this album, I'm playing it.
    Seems these are all works that appear for the first time on CD (or stream).
    Well recorded, interesting music.

    Re: Classical Music Only | What You're Listening to Now, Or Very Recently | Any Mediums :

    Rebecca Dale - Requiem for my mother
    Qobuz 24/96




    This is a very nice discovery, thank you Ed!

    Young British composer Rebecca Dale, the first female composer to sign to Decca Classics, will release her debut album ‘Requiem For My Mother’ on 31st August – featuring two major works: her brand new Materna Requiem and her choral symphony When Music Sounds.
    At the heart of Rebecca’s first recording is her Materna Requiem – a beautifully moving and uplifting tribute to her late mother, who died in 2010. The work draws from both the traditional text of the Catholic Mass and contemporary poetry and is a homage to parents everywhere. It features the voices of soprano Louise Alder, tenor Trystan Griffiths and young choristers Hannah Dienes-Williams and Edward Hyde (BBC Radio 2 Young Chorister of the Year 2016) alongside the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra. The work will receive its world premiere performance at The North Wales International Music Festival in St Asaph Cathedral on 22nd September.
    Rebecca Dale says of the album: “It’s an amazing feeling to be releasing my first album and sharing my music with everyone. The Requiem is a very personal piece to me, and it uses melodies I wrote when I was a child so you could say I’ve been working on it for most of my life! When I first wrote the Requiem I didn’t even realise it would receive a performance so it’s a hugely exciting moment to hear it on record, and I hope the piece connects with people.”
    The first track from Rebecca’s new album, ‘Pie Jesu’, is out now and expresses a parent’s love for their son or daughter – so instead of using a child’s voice as is tradition for this movement, it’s represented as a father singing to his newborn.
    The process of writing the Materna Requiem has been somewhat cathartic for Rebecca – she describes the musical tribute to her mother as “a way for me to build a bridge back to her”. Rebecca is keen to help others who have suffered the loss of a parent and is a supporter of Winston’s Wish – the UK’s first childhood bereavement charity. Donation buckets will be available at the premiere performance of the work, plus Rebecca will be taking part in ‘TrekFest’ for the charity.
    Rebecca’s work first came to public attention when BBC Radio 3 premiered her choral symphony ‘When Music Sounds’ in 2014 and the track, ‘I’ll Sing’, went to No.1 on the Classical iTunes chart. It seems fitting that the whole piece is recorded on her debut album. Performed by the Cantus Ensemble – one of London’s leading chamber choirs – this inspiring orchestral work is a glorious counterpart to the Requiem and concludes the album in stunning style. © Decca/Universal Music
