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. He originally wrote the eight songs "... pour chant avec accompagnement de quatuor d'instruments à archets", but then asks the Bulgarian composer Pantcho Wladigueroff, who is born in Zurich, for an arrangement for piano and voice...

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...

Water, in all its myriad of moods. Just imagine… …the sea, waves reflecting the shimmering silver and gold of the sun’s rays; a babbling brook, its bed bejewelled with iridescent stones; deep water radiating a soft, serene, blue light; raindrops falling from a pallid sky like tears shed by a heart rent with sorrow... The young Latvian pianist, Arta Arnicane, lends all this to your grand piano. With works by Chopin, Debussy, Grieg, Liszt and Ravel as well as Berio, Ķepītis and Žilinskis and more...

Italian Rococo at The Hermitage

In the 18th and 19th centuries, the Hermitage in St Petersburg not only housed famous art collections, which were made accessible to the public after the October Revolution, but also hosted glamorous musical events. Catherine the Great had the Hermitage Theatre built, which still stands to this day, and the operas that were magnificently staged there were central to courtly festivities. The idea for this CD came in conjunction with Claire Genewein’s elevation to Doctor of Creative and Performing Arts at the University of Leiden in the Netherlands in June 2014...

Live at the Tivoli - Official Bootleg Recordings - Digital only

"The Official Bootleg Recordings" unites the two legendary Tivoli concerts of the exceptional Tenor, Francisco Araiza, from 1985 and 1987, which were personally recorded in Copenhagen.
