Romantic Virtuosity

In 1997, at the age of twelve, Giuliano Sommerhalder travelled to Moscow from his mountain village of Astano in Ticino to take part in the International Trumpet Competition of the Tchaikovsky Conservatory. He won it, but set even greater store by the fact that the "living legends" among Russian trumpeters heard him and offered him their friendship. Timofei Dokschitzer, Venyamin Margolin, Yury Usov and others saw in him a potential champion of their great tradition. Late-night discussions around kitchen tables in Moscow caused an ambitious plan to form in the boy's mind...

Canti Drammatici

Yearning is a constant in life and in music. Peteris Vasks's music is always tinged with sorrow and melancholy, but hope is always there as well. "The beauty of nature seizes us like a promise of something," wrote the philosopher Ernst Bloch, and that promise might be seen as Peteris Vasks's point of departure. Although the Third Piano Quartet was not published or premiered until 1875, Brahms had begun working on it in 1855/56. Even for Brahms, who spent a lot of time revising works until he arrived at the final form, twenty years to complete a composition was exceptional...

In Croce

Challenges or Crosses on our way of life wanted to be accepted, bettered and overcome. Our life is full of retreat for the last excess of terrestrial Life; the time of humans is a time of the Advent. Alfred Delp The works of this recording signalizes the way of the Human Cross by Affliction and Light. The sound of terrestrial Sein is increased by the Cross, as Beethoven says. If we accept our Cross or admit this music, life-donating "Morning Air" (Jean Paul) will capture, support and comfort us. This music is a gift of God!..

Concertini für Oboe "Lost & Found"

Lost & Found means stumbling across music by pure chance, fortuitous circumstances and sometimes after a long and arduous search; music composed a long time ago, in most cases performed then and since lost in the mists of time. The nineteenth century plays a central role in all this, since the oboe as a solo instrument had by that time been relegated to a wallflower existence and was only perceived by the music-loving public as part of the overall orchestral timbre. If Robert Schumann had not written his famous Romances op...

Romantische Verwandlungen

Die so genannte "Deutsche Romantik", die Periode also des mittleren bis späten 19.Jahrhunderts war übervoll von großen, genialen Komponisten wie Schubert, Schumann, Brahms, Bruckner, Mendelsohn, Liszt, Wagner etc. geprägt. Die Dominanz dieser großen Meister verdeckte im öffentlichen Bewusstsein eine zweite Ebene komponierender Musiker, die kaum weniger bedeutende Werke schufen und zum Teil an herausragenden Positionen wirkten...

Birth of the Cello

Earliest music for Violoncello solo played on the oldest Cello of the world (1566). The Ricercari of Domenico Gabrielli and Gianbattista Degli Antonii.

Many years later, the cello meets for the first time Julius Berger...

Roma Amor

If a non gypsy musician founds a Hungarian band and leads them even as a Primás, this venture can be called easily adventurous.

Since that time Kalandos is touring successfully in Switzerland, Germany, France and Hungary. The two Musicians Karel Boeschoten (violin) and János Rigó (Cimbalom) form the basis of the ensemble...
