Surely not many cellists are able to perform rare, original cello duets with their own father. The GinzelDuellohowever combines the professionalism and experience of father Reiner Ginzel (a professor at Munich’s University of Music) with the youthful freshness and creative spontaneity of young cellist and composer Hans-Henning Ginzel, some of whose remarkable arrangements can be heard on this CD...

Dimensionen - Welt

In the first part “world” of their new "dimensions" trilogy Marlis Petersen and Stephan Matthias Lademann make a journey through 100 years of musical romanticism - an epoch in which natural images of various kinds play a central role as the projection and reflection surface of human feelings and longings. We can hear compositions by Franz Schubert, Clara and Robert Schumann, Johannes Brahms, Richard Wagner, Sigurd von Koch and Hans Sommer, who are concerned with the themes of "heaven and earth", "man and nature", "lot and knowledge" and "hope and longing "...

From Beethoven to Present

During his childhood, the Brahmshaus in Rüschlikon on Lake Zurich was the residence of his grandparents. Beethoven stands for sound transparency, while Schumann's Opus 70 is dedicated to sound fusion. Jörg Widmann is, in comparision to the three old masters, Greull's latest discovery...

Franz Schubert: Symphonien Nr. 4 & 7

The present release of Symphonies 4 and 7 must be understood both as an evaluation of the joint work over past years with the Münchner Symphoniker, and also as a look ahead at what is yet to come. Which composer would be better suited to such a Janus-like look than Schubert - for whom the open, the unspoken and the hoped-for played such an enormous role compositionally as well as biographically? The logo of the Munich Symphony Orchestra shows a golden angel on the banks of the river Isar - wing tips point skywards, keeping vigil over the Bavarian capital...

Brahms Cello-Sonaten

Johannes Brahms once stated himself that, besides learning the piano as his main instrument, he was also taught the violin, horn and cello during his early years. In any case, an early “Duo for Pianoforte and Violoncello”, which was later destroyed by the composer but is known to have been performed under the pseudonym “Karl Würth” in a private concert on July 5, 1851, marked the start of Johannes Brahms’s life-long compositional interest in the cello, the second most prominent string instrument after the violin...

Henri Marteau: Lieder

The two song cycles Opus 19c and Opus 28: "Composed during the period of protective custody between 1915 and 1917", Henri Marteau notes on the cover of the sketches for the cycle Opus 19c.

Hommage á Ysaye

As one of the greatest violin virtuosos, Eugene Ysaÿe inspired the world. He was also a compassionate chamber musician, great teacher and fascinating conductor. It was after his return to Belgium in July 1923, when, at the age of 65 Ysaÿe wrote his bestknown work: the Six Sonatas for violin solo Op.27, each of them dedicated to a European violinist. Like the Solo sonatas and Partitas of Bach and like the 24 Capricci of Paganini, Ysaÿe’s sonatas demonstrate not only astonishing technical innovations, but are also a powerful poetic expression of his time...

Bach - Cage/Choräle (3CDs)

Johann Sebastian Bach’s suites for cello solo are arguably the purest form of music, works that require no explanation or background knowledge. Johann Sebastian Bach made one of his most profound affirmations, a Gradus ad Parnassum, which in six stages sets out an intellectual and technical challenge that is and will probably remain peerless in the history of music for our instrument. My colleague and friend, Prof...
