Il Viaggio

Marianna Shirinyan about some of the works:   Mansurian: Mr. Mansurian was very supportive towards my trio some years ago. His "Three Pieces for the Low Keys" written in 1979 are all composed in the keys and rhythms of Armenian folk music. The third piece, for example, is in the 6/8-dance rhythm typical of Armenian music.   Berg: Berg waited a long time before he felt he could call one of his works “opus 1” and the piano sonata is actually his only composition for the instrument that was given an opus number...

Béla Bartók - Streichquartette 1 & 2

The string quartet occupies an important place in Bartók's oeuvre; the six quartets illustrate his characteristic musical style. As with Beethoven, each quartet seems to epitomize its respective creative period. What makes the first of Bartók's six quartets so special is its direct connection to the late romantic period, which does not detract from the fact that he has already reached a very unique and personal style. The second quartet seems to seamlessly continue where Bartókleft off with the first quartet, even though nearly 10 years lie between the two compositions...

vier minus drei - das Hörbuch zum SPIEGEL-Bestseller

Am 19. März 2008 war die Welt noch in Ordnung. Ich war Ehefrau, Mama zweier kleiner Kinder, Clown von Beruf. Meine Mutter hatte Geburtstag, an diesem 19. März, genau wie meine Freundin Anna. Ein guter Tag, ein fröhlicher Tag. Einen Tag später war ich Witwe. Kurz darauf: Verwaiste Mutter. Vier minus drei, das war ich. „Wie kann man so etwas schaffen?“ Ich glaube, keine andere Frage wurde mir in den vergangenen drei Jahren so oft gestellt. Anfangs fiel es mir schwer, eine Antwort zu finden. Habe ich überhaupt etwas geschafft?..

"Chanson - Vocalise" - Works for Violoncello and Piano by Rachmaninoff and Suslin

The recordings Rakhmaninov himself made are today outstanding documents and reference sources for the interpretation of his works. All important cellists since Pablo Casals have included the Cello Sonata op. 19 and the Vocalise in their repertoire. The contemporary reactions that burdened Rakhmaninov have been nullified by all the outstanding performers who have devoted themselves to Rakhmaninov's works. The fate of Viktor Suslin, born in Miass in the Urals on June 13, 1942, has been similar to that of Rakhmaninov...

Double Bass goes Beethoven - Beethoven Cello Sonatas with Double Bass Vol. 1

WORLD PREMIER RECORDING OF ALL BEETHOVEN’S CELLO SONATAS ON DOUBLE BASS (Volume 1) In 1799 Beethoven himself played the piano part in his Sonata in G minor, Opus 5, no. 2 with the greatest double bass player of the day, Domenico Dragonetti. This fact made a strong impression on me even as a boy, and I dreamed that one day I too might play a Beethoven sonata on the double bass. Beethoven’s work decisively shaped my musical development and career. I was sixteen years old when I first played a Beethoven symphony, his Seventh, in an orchestra...

Années de Pèlerinage

Franz Liszt was one of the most important figures in the history of nineteenth-century music. As a virtuoso, he revolutionized piano technique, introducing many ideas that vastly extended the instrument's tonal potential. Not least in order to escape the gossip in the French capital, Liszt and his companion spent several years in Switzerland and Italy. Starting from Geneva, where he taught and performed, Liszt undertook several tours of Switzerland. He recorded his impressions in twelve piano pieces and published them as Album d'un voyageurin 1835...

Gustav Mahler - Symphony No. 5 in C sharp minor in five movements for full orchestra

The message was dismal and boded ill. Written at the beginning of the twentieth century, Gustav Mahler's Fifth Symphony began by burdening the beginning of the new age with a fateful omen in the first movement. A funeral march opens the work - uncanny, oppressive and almost totally lacking in the heroic pathos that had characterized the funeral march at the beginning of Mahler's Second Symphony...


Jedes Jahr das gleiche Ritual:      So unentrinnbar wie stereotyp quillt aus dem Briefkasten das gedruckte Widerbild geschäftlichen oder Kalenderpflichtigen Wohlwollens und befreundelt einen weihnachtlich. Grußkarten, die noch ein paar seufzende Kringel Handschrift tragen und mit echter Liebe die Menschen und den wunderbaren Anlass meinen, zählen zu den vom Aussterben bedrohten Arten. Weihnachten ist es aber wert, etwas Wahres von sich zu verschenken und etwas Wahres geschenkt zu bekommen...

Birth Of The String Quartet Vol. 2

For the first time recorded entirely on Jacobus Stainer instruments Telemann, Guillemain, Haydn, Mozart   The German classic-magazine “Fono Forum” wrote 2010 about “Birth Of The String Quartet Vol. 1: “An overwhelming hearing experience“.
