4 for peace

An important feature of the ensemble CelloPassionato is its regular cooperation with composers. Its close ties with the composer create proximity to the work, inspire the interpretation and generate the feeling of being able to "read between the lines". All the compositions recorded on this CD are a product of this cooperation. The works by Ali-Sade and Gubaidulina are released here as premiere recordings, whereas the works by Bonato and Kerer were written for the ensemble, premiered and subsequently recorded.   For over 15 years, Prof. Julius Berger has been running an ensemble made up of his finest students...

Dohnanyi Dvorak Suk

Ensemble Raro joined forces with the violinist Andrej Bielow to record three jewels of the Romantic chamber repertoire - Antonin Dvorak's Piano Quartet in E Flat Major, Erno Dohnanyi's First Piano Quintet and Joseph Suk's Elegie. The result leaves a singular impression on the listener. An unaffected sincerity of the five performers takes it's roots from the profound respect they had developed for each other's musical identity. Complete identification with the musical material coupled with truly Romantic imagination makes for a very fine listening experience...

His works for a cappella choir show an overwhelming variety of styles, texts, and compositional techniques. And for these, choirs are extremely grateful. Benjamin Britten, who was known not only as a composer but also as an experienced practitioner, was able to precisely gauge the possibilities of each respective performer; he knew exactly which details in the score were necessary to achieve the desired effect...

Escapades (CD + 2 LP Vinyl)

The saxophone was named after the Belgian instrument maker Adolphe Sax. Whether as a solo instrument or as part of the orchestra, it seldom appears in concert halls and opera houses today. Nonetheless, before the instrument found its his true home - the world of jazz  - it was to be heard in classical music. Its first prominent appearance was in Georges Bizet's incidental music to Daudet's L'arlésienne in 1872, yet it failed to establish itself in the orchestra. There are however countless chamber works for the saxophone and many concertos for saxophone and orchestra...
