Alban Berg and Johannes Brahms are surely each among the most important composers of their time. Even if they are separated chronologically and stylistically, there is a link: Brahms was only 20 when he wrote his Piano Sonata in F minor (op. 5), his third and last in the genre. After Alban Berg composed his Piano Sonata (op. 1) he never wrote another. Pianist Florian Krumpöck presents these two contrasting yet comparable works on this recording. Internationally celebrated as both a soloist and conductor, Florian Krumpöck has more than proven his outstanding capability on the international concert scene...

Russian Treasures - Titz - Glasunow - Tschaikowsky

From the very beginning, St. Petersburg - the gloriously petrified vision of Tsar Peter the Great, was a city of art and music. The highest paid employee in the Tsarist palace was a violinist from Nuremberg: Anton Ferdinand Titz. He dedicated his life to chamber music. With his colorful, brilliant quartets in the tradition of the 'Wiener Klassik' he himself founded a Russian tradition around 1800. Decades later Alexander Glazunov made big sensation as a young composing dare devil. During his magnificent 1st symphony he also wrote the 5 Novellettes op. 15...

Joseph Joachim RAFF: «Sanges Frühling» op. 98 & «Maria Stuart» op. 172

Joachim Raff, born 1822 in Switzerland, was an important composer of the 19th century. Franz Liszt – who’s assistant he was from 1850 to 1856 - had great benefit from Raff’s talent for instrumentation. He had influence e.g. on Tchaikovsky, Mahler, and Debussy. Two world premiere recordings: Sanges-Frühling(Springtime of Song) Op. 98, a collection of 30 compositions for voice with pianoforte, written between 1855 and 1863, is a true discovery, followed by the cycle Maria Stuart Op. 172 (12 songs), written in 1872, which takes us back to the busy 16th century...

Being EaRNeST

There are always artistswho stay true to a specific language, imagery and ideals. Their tone might seem modest and their gaze gives an impression to be turned backwards. From William Morris to Brahms, Handel to Goethe, this view has strangely provided them with an endless vitality. Then there are others who search for the Holy Grail only to never find it, for new horizons and new harmonies, burning everything that has preceded them. The divide between the two types, in the musical and cultural world, has never been deeper than in the first half of the 20th century...

L Amore e Poesia - Vocalises for Soprano and Orchestra

L’AMORE È POESIA (”love is poetry”) is a song cycle for soprano and orchestra, built around four vocalises and an orchestral interlude. The various pieces were written over the course of nearly a decade, and at very different stages of my life. But they all are connected with each other by the underlying theme set forth in the title.   The compositions feature a wordless soprano, even though I was urged by several of my friends to use a libretto at first. However, it occurred to me early on that the music could be vocal but without relying on words...
