OPUS 100

More than the monumental length of Schubert’s OPUS 100 has made the work not only a highlight in the history of music but also as the apogee of the piano trio genre. Getting to grips with this work may feel likeplanning an ascent of Mount Everest. But for a recently established ensemble to undertake this work for their first CD recording is like actually making the ascent of Everest itself...

Tokarev plays Rosenblatt

The music of Alexander Rosenblatt combines classical forms and methods with jazzy vintage features (harmonies, rhythms, melodic lines). Anchored as it is in the classical tradition, his music cannot be considered a "jazzy stream”. Rosenblatt's key message to performers of his music is: ”Please don’t pretend you are jazz PLAYERS!” Whatever the genre (sonata, fantasy, instrumental concerto etc) Rosenblatt’s music always reveals a highly romantic approach. The two good friends Tokarev and Rosenblatt make music already for a very long time with one another...

Cool Rhythm

When black and white notes turn into sound ... The feeling when all of us play together and the notes in black and white turn into music is overwhelming. The sound is warm, full and intoxicating, sometimes almost inaudibly soft, sometimes brutally loud. The Phantastische Zauberträume (fantastical magic dreams) by Siegfried Matthus offer particularly great variety. Sparklingly fast runs alternate with frozen moments, lyrical passages are contrasted with eruptive staccato orgies. To record this work is a real challenge...

Encores & more

During the first part of the 20th century, short characteristic pieces, which these days are almost only performed as encores, played an important part for the violinist. Following a mostly Baroque “warm-up piece” and a well known violin sonata from the classical or romantic repertoire – sometimes a violin concerto was played alternatively with a piano accompaniment (!) – artists such as Jascha Heifetz, Fritz Kreisler or Mischa Elman arranged the second part of their recitals preferably with those charming, artistic and expressive pieces, which are characterised by a uniform, concise musical atmosphere...

Birth of the String Quartet

For the first time recorded entirely on Jacobus Steiner instruments Scarlatti, Boccherini, Haydn, Mozart The Jubilee Year 2009 celebrates Joseph Haydn as the most important representatives of the Viennese classics in addition to Mozart. Among its greatest achievements is undoubtedly the "invention" of the string quartet. While typically each student begins with this fascinating genre by Haydn, illuminates the casal quartet with the project "The sound of the 18th century," the various ways to the creation of the European String Quartet...

Renowned solo harpist Margit-Anna Süß, a native of Munich, who also appeared as a guest harpist with the Berlin- and Bamberg Symphonic Orchestras, describes a journey through musical eras on her new CD "Zeitenwandel" (lit.: Change of Times), which is a co-production with the 'Bayerischer Rundfunk'. Ms. Süß explains: "I would love to show what music intended to express in different eras and how this can be translated into harp-playing. I deliberately dropped any chronological order as to offer the listener more contrast...

Motetten von Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy

The Münchner Hofkantorei was re-established in 2009. Like their artistic director and initiator Wolfgang Antesberger, the singers are members of the chorus of the Bavarian Staatsoper. That places the ensemble in the direct historical tradition of the original Münchner Hofkantorei, the Munich court chapel of Duke Wilhelm IV, a member of the house of Wittelsbach. Then as now, the singers from various nationalities are selected according to the choral and solo demands of the music being performed...
