Georg Philipp Telemann (1681–1767) was a German Baroque composer and multi-instrumentalist.Telemann was one of the most prolific major composers of all time: his all-encompassing oeuvre comprises more than 3,000 compositions, half of which have been lost, and most of which have not been performed since the 18th century. This album consists of some of his most beautiful works: The rarely performed concerto for 2 flutes, violin, cello and orchestra, the sonata for trumpet and strings and the fabulous suite in A minor for flute and orchestra played by the soloists of the Cologne New Philharmonic under the direction of Volker Hartung.

The second instalment in the Ehnes Quartet’s survey of the late Beethoven Quartets recorded in the US with their producer overseeing the sessions from London as the pandemic saw the UK travel plans and sessions cancelled. They bring to these masterworks many years of experience: ‘the four CDs we recorded during this intense two-week period will always be treasured reminders for us of a brief, bucolic window of artistic fulfilment during a terribly challenging period for the world’ said James Ehnes.

Classical | Label: Alpha Classics, Outhere Music

Collectif9 is a Montreal-based string ensemble whose main focus is an original exploration of the classical repertoire, including transcriptions for chamber ensemble of large-scale works. Alpha is starting a collaboration with this innovative group and now presents its very first album, recorded in 2018 and consisting of music by (and inspired by) Gustav Mahler: No Time for Chamber Music, a nod to Luciano Berio’s Sinfonia, inspired in its turn by Mahler’s Second Symphony. Mahler himself often quoted his own works, and his rich instrumental textures have provided a source of inspiration for composers and arrangers alike.

Of Love and War, partly inspired by Eduardo Galeano’s novel Days and Nights of Love and War, draws parallels between the isolation and pent-up passions of wartime and the experiences of the current pandemic. Much of this repertoire was composed around the time of the First World War, but also embraces broader themes of beginnings and endings, night and day, love and loss.

The music on this EP inhabits a particular corner of the bounteous repertory of characteristic pieces for violin and piano. Short without being slight, these miniatures are vibrant and emotive, getting to the heart of the matter with freshness and originality, and sharing a rich yet restrained harmonic language which is identifiably English in character.

For her first solo violin album Lea Birringer has selected three partitas for her instrument: partitas transformed over the centuries since Bach, commencing with Bach’s great Partita No.3 in E major and ending with Auerbach’s 2007 example ‘par.ti.ta’. Lothar von Knorr’s Partita from 1946 will most likely be a discovery for most listeners. Her programme also includes works by Reger and Ysaÿe.

Within the framework of his complete Brahms cycle, Geoffroy Couteau presents an original programme focusing on the trio Brahms formed with Robert and Clara Schumann, and on their relationship with Joseph Joachim. All these personalities lie at the heart of the conception of both the Concerto in D minor and the transcription of Bach’s Chaconne; two works that also reveal their shared devotion to Bach.

Ronald Binge was one of the most highly respected and successful English composers of his generation. He played a significant role in creating the Mantovani sound, but his big breakthrough came with the Elizabethan Serenade, which became an international hit. The evocative moods and memorable melodies of his best works saw their regular use as themes for TV and radio, and the soothing tones of Sailing By are still in use today as the close-down music for BBC Radio 4.

This is a great Mass work. It is good that Mr. Domingo and the people from Deutsche Grammophon recorded this work from Bacalov. Placido Domingo is great at always finding and recording new genders of music. I believe this is the first time this work is recorded. His recent recording of Albéniz "Merlin" (Decca London) is also a first. He is accompanied on both works by Ms.Ana Maria Martinez who in my oppinion has one of the best young voices today. She sings beautifully on both works. Her vocal range and musicality is one of the best my ears have listen to. I saw her live singing with Andrea Bocelli and she brought tears to my eyes. What a voice!! I will definetly buy more copies of Misa Tango to give to my friends this holiday season.

Genre: Classical / Label: CAvi-music

Un somptueux récital. Lauréate du Concours Reine Elisabeth en 2014, la jeune soprano belge Sheva Tehoval, au timbre absolument magnifique, propose notamment, au travers d’enchaînements subtils, trois cycles de jeunesse de trois compositeurs majeurs de la modernité. En 1888, Debussy (26 ans) écrit son recueil de six mélodies Ariettes oubliées, la même année que Strauss (24 ans) ses Mädchenblumen. Dix années plus tard, Schönberg (25 ans) compose ses 4 Lieder, Op. 2. Petite incursion dans l’ère contemporaine, avec un triptyque de 2004, les Drei Hölderlin-Gedichte de Wolfgang Rihm – le numéro deux, Hälfte des Lebens est très émouvant.

Nicolas Chédeville (Serez 1705 - Paris 1782) was the youngest of three instrumentalists from a branch of the Hotteterre family, known for its major role in the manufacturing of wind instruments as well as for its famous musicians active at the court of Versailles. Pierre Chédeville, the older, died in 1725. The two brothers Esprit-Philippe (known as «the older» after the death of Pierre) and Nicolas (called «the youngest») played oboe in royal musical circles but are especially renowned as players and makers of musettes, as well as composers and arrangers for their favourite instrument. Both brothers enjoyed permanent posts as hautbois de la chambre and musettes ordinaires in the Royal Academy of Music, and Nicolas taught musette to the Royal children, and in particular to princess Victoire of France to whom he dedicated three of his works. His compositions highlight particularly well the specific resources of the musette for which he also transcribed pieces by Italian composers, including Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, and La Follia.

Myung-Whun Chung previously has proven his affinity for Dvorák on two occasions: an excellent recording of Symphonies Nos. 7 and 8 for BIS, and later with Symphonies 3 and 7 for Deutsche Grammophon. No, there’s nothing wrong with your computer screen: he’s already recorded Symphony No. 7 twice, and this disc gives us his second reading of No. 8, undoubtedly DG’s response to millions of fan letters sent to their offices by love-struck teenage girls threatening suicide unless Chung’s Vienna Dvorák cycle was allowed to continue. His recording of Symphonies Nos. 3 and 7 was never released domestically, by the way, leading us to speculate about what makes this disc more marketable than that one, assuming of course that such considerations have anything to do with DG’s decision to schedule a recording for domestic distribution.

As the old saying goes, "the third time's the charm." This is indeed the third time the German label Accent has issued this coupling of Domenico Scarlatti's Stabat Mater with João Rodrigues Esteves' Missa a oito voces. The first time was in 1990, when the recording by Currende under the leadership of Erik van Nevel was new, and the second in 1998 as part of a box set containing this and several recordings by Concerto Palatino. No complaints here, though, as this is one of the finest discs Accent has to offer.
