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...

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.

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...
