Bach - Brahms

J. S. Bach’s creative potential as a composer was so all-embracing that there is hardly a single musical genre to which he did not repeatedly return. The great instrumental cycles and the monumental choral works are those most closely associated with his illustrious name. One of these cycles, the Six Partitas for Clavier solo, was designated as his opus 1. Bach wrote it at the age of 46 and had it published himself. One suspects he must have taken special care in selecting a work for the accolade of “opus 1”, especially since his catalogue of works to that date already contained many of his unique masterpieces...

Fiori Musicali Triberg

The 1989, Baroque ensemble of the Vienna Symphony Orchestra since then presented a series of concerts with sophisticated Baroque music in the context of the Bregenz Festival includes 13 musicians. These concerts over the years, evolved into a real "audience hit" and continued to the present. This was followed by invitations to the Schubertiade to Schwarzenberg, Fiori Musicali Triberg and other festivals. The special feature of the ensemble is to combine the style and phrasing of the Baroque with the sonic possibilities of today's instruments and to develop as a unique sound culture...

Holy War X

Solo Musica presents the Rodrieg Ensemble on an album that explores the dawn of modern classical music and its continuing legacy - with three late works of Claude Debussy as the point of departure.  The album begins with Syrinx 2 (Mark Rodrieg’s flute-duo arrangement of Debussy’s original work for solo flute), Feux d’artifice (Fireworks – Debussy’s last piano Prelude) and Debussy’s Sonata for Cello and Piano...

Amato Belcanto

In the early nineteenth century, composers commissioned to write new operas received from the impresario a list of the singers in the solo ensemble so that that the parts might be written to suit them. The rise of bel canto consequently had a lot to do with the vocal potential of the female singers who were to play the title roles - the great prima donnas of the day. The opere serieRossini wrote in Naples represent milestones in the development of bel canto. They were all written for Isabella Colbran, and they owed their great success in no small degree to her exceptional voice and expressive singing...

4 for peace

An important feature of the ensemble CelloPassionato is its regular cooperation with composers. Its close ties with the composer create proximity to the work, inspire the interpretation and generate the feeling of being able to "read between the lines". All the compositions recorded on this CD are a product of this cooperation. The works by Ali-Sade and Gubaidulina are released here as premiere recordings, whereas the works by Bonato and Kerer were written for the ensemble, premiered and subsequently recorded.   For over 15 years, Prof. Julius Berger has been running an ensemble made up of his finest students...

Dohnanyi Dvorak Suk

Ensemble Raro joined forces with the violinist Andrej Bielow to record three jewels of the Romantic chamber repertoire - Antonin Dvorak's Piano Quartet in E Flat Major, Erno Dohnanyi's First Piano Quintet and Joseph Suk's Elegie. The result leaves a singular impression on the listener. An unaffected sincerity of the five performers takes it's roots from the profound respect they had developed for each other's musical identity. Complete identification with the musical material coupled with truly Romantic imagination makes for a very fine listening experience...

Sacred and Profane

Benjamin Britten(1913-1976), the creator of the epic War Requiem, is rightly regarded as the most important English composer of the 20th century. His works for a cappella choir show an overwhelming variety of styles, texts, and compositional techniques. And for these, choirs are extremely grateful. Benjamin Britten, who was known not only as a composer but also as an experienced practitioner, was able to precisely gauge the possibilities of each respective performer; he knew exactly which details in the score were necessary to achieve the desired effect...

Escapades (CD + 2 LP Vinyl)

The saxophone was named after the Belgian instrument maker Adolphe Sax. Whether as a solo instrument or as part of the orchestra, it seldom appears in concert halls and opera houses today. Nonetheless, before the instrument found its his true home - the world of jazz  - it was to be heard in classical music. Its first prominent appearance was in Georges Bizet's incidental music to Daudet's L'arlésienne in 1872, yet it failed to establish itself in the orchestra. There are however countless chamber works for the saxophone and many concertos for saxophone and orchestra...


Who knows not the milkman Tevye and his wonderful song about the richness of although possible, but extremely unlikely in the near future. After Shmuel Rodenskys hit, the Yiddish song disappeared from the music scene quickly and comprehensively.
