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. Few months after its birthday in Cremona before exactly 440 years, the cello was already integrated into the royal yard orchestra of the king Karl IV by France. From there on the traces of the cello lose themselves, probably changed it several times the owners and got over several wars, until it is again mentioned 1926 in an expert's assessment. 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. Exactly this happened as the Netherlands Violinist Karel Boeschoten founded the group of Kalandos (= adventurously in Hungarian language) in Spring 2002. 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...

Songs and Dances of Life

Members of the Ensemble RaRo are playing Romanian Songs and Dances of BARTÓK, SCHUBERT, MARTINU and other composers The ensemble Raro was created 2004 by four outstanding musicians, whose goal is it to create unusual chamber-musical moments. In order to realize this as consistently as possible, the ensemble prefers the position „Ensemble in Residence “, which has it in Munich, Traunstein, Augsburg, Germany, Bucharest and Kobe, Japan...

Tango Sensations

Due to economic rather than artistic reasons, the modern concert-business opens its doors more and more to socalled crossover-projects. This display of music`s universal coherence sometimes looks rather forced or superficial. Some love the idea and tend to go to concerts more often, whereas purists stay at home. Few genres in music tend to be as traditional and conservative as the string quartet. Its repertoire is vast and features music of all styles since the 17th century. The core-repertoire from Haydn, Beethoven through to Bartók and Schostakowitsch dominates the stage...

Volume 1

Jazz on the cello? Tango only on strings? So that the dance master would please gladly the ladies and gentlemen on the parquet, so that real jazz fans do not feel posed on a serious faith sample? That actually gives it, if the “Rastrelli Cello Quartet” seizes to the elbow. There it goes desireful and in music crosswise through styles and epochs, but with respect, feeling and fate for dressings, which are far more than an other playing of famous melodies...

Grande Duo Concertante

The guitar is one of the oldest and, in all its various forms, one of the most ubiquitous of instruments. The special interest it awakened in the fi rst half of the nineteenth century coincided with the transition in the late eighteenth century from the earlier four- and fi vecourse forms (i.e. with four or fi ve pairs of strings) to the standard six-string form we know today, which has a more voluminous tone and enables more wide-ranging use as a solo instrument, in accompanying the voice and in chamber music...

Opera Fantasies

Astonishing virtuosity and an incredible abundance of arrangements are two of the most important hallmarks of nineteenth-century music. In the absence of sound recording, a great variety of arrangements were made, not only of large works like operas and symphonies, but also of chamber music, songs and piano pieces. The famous violinist Natasha Korsakova put exactly this thought into practice. With its great playing of the violin, she brings us the large opera in occupation with piano into our living rooms. Their special love e.g. for the music of George Gershwin developed already early...

Ludwig Quandt Solo

However rewarding and inspiring an acoustic overview of Hungarian or at least Hungarian-influenced violoncello art can be for the performer and consequently also for the music-loving listener is shown by the present varied programme, thought-provokingly selected by Ludwig Quandt with due regard to the order of the pieces.
