Marcel Dupré - Ben van Oosten - Organ Works Vol. 5
Cavaillé-Coll Organ, Saint-Ouen, Rouen

Label/Cat#: MDG "Gold" # 316 0955-2 | Country/Year: Germany 2003

"...In many ways Dupré may be viewed as a 'Paganini' of the organ - being a virtuoso of the highest order, he contributed extensively to the development of technique (both in his organ music and in his pedagogical works) although, like Paganini, his music is relatively unknown to musicians other than those who play the instrument for which the music was written. A fair and objective critique of his music should take into account the fact that, occasionally, the emphasis on virtuosity and technique can be detrimental to the musical content and substance. However, his more successful works combine this virtuosity with a high degree of musical integrity, qualities found in works such as the Symphonie-Passion, the Chemin de la Croix, the Preludes and Fugues, the Esquisses and Évocation, and the Cortège et Litanie..." ~wikipedia

Trio Zimmermann - Beethoven: String Trio Op.3; Serenade Op.8 (2014)
Frank Peter Zimmermann, violin; Antoine Tamestit, viola; Christian Poltéra, cello

EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue&Log) ~ 304 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 169 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans included

The Trio Zimmermann’s previous release of Beethoven’s Trios received excellent reviews and won them the BBC Music Magazine’s Chamber Award in 2013. This next instalment shows us the ‘lighter’ side of Beethoven’s chamber works. The Trio in E flat major and Serenade in D major consist of sequences of six and eight movements respectively, with minuets and marches reminding us of courtly music from an earlier period. However, they are far from ‘old-fashioned’. The adventurous spirit of the young Beethoven is plain to hear, in the exceptionally creative use of textures, thematic development and formal innovation. In this music Beethoven gives each instrument an equal importance and a highly individual treatment. A first-class chamber ensemble is required to meet these demands and this is exactly what the Trio Zimmermann offer, comprised of three exceptional soloists.

Strauss R. - Ariadne auf Naxos (James Levine, Jessye Norman, Kathleen Battle) (2003/1988)
NTSC 4:3 (720x480) VBR | Deutsch (LinearPCM, 2 ch) | (DTS, 5 ch) | (Dolby AC3, 6 ch) | 7.77 Gb (DVD9) | 154 min
Classical | Deutsche Grammophon | Sub: Deutsch, English, Francais, Espanol, Chinese

“This is straight and unfussy in its staging, and the video production by Brian Large could not be more expert and unobtrusive (save for one or two close-ups of Jessye Norman's larynx). Tatiana Troyanos's Composer is quite superb, and neither Battle nor Norman can be faulted vocally” (Penguin Guide)

Isabelle van Keulen, Thomas Dausgaard - Pettersson: Violin Concerto No 2 (2007)
EAC Rip | Flac (Image + cue + log) | 281 MB | MP3 320Kbps CBR | 138 MB | 1 CD | Full Scans
Genre: Classical | Label: CPO | Catalog Number: 777199

Andreas K. W. Meyer’s notes provide a timeline for the life of Allan Petterson (1911–1980), “orchestra violinist, composer, oddball.” In any event, he cast his Second Violin Concerto in one, almost hour-long, movement (the recording has been divided into 10 tracks for those who might want to study specific sections). Its elfin opening, with swirling tonal parts in the upper registers surrounding the stratospheric solo, provides little preparation for the dense textures to come. If these seem to lack transparency, listeners should be aware that van Keulen and Dausgaard play the Concerto in a “revised version,” in which the composer supposedly significantly lightened the original.

Filsell, Briggs: Choral Music - Jeremy Backhouse, Vasari Singers (2013)
EAC Rip | Flac (Image + cue + log) | 292 MB | MP3 320Kbps CBR | 193 MB | 1 CD | Full Scans
Genre: Classical | Label: Naxos | Catalog Number: 8573111

This recording brings together two of today’s finest British organist/composers and includes specially commissioned works. Jeremy Filsell’s music is rooted in a long liturgical tradition and ranges from a poignant Epitaph to a Te Deum which recreates the spirit of William Walton’s glorious piece for the 1953 Coronation. David Briggs’s Pange lingua portrays the wonders of the Holy Communion in music, and his dramatic and grandiose Messe pour Saint-Sulpice also has moments of quiet, emotional profundity. The Vasari Singers’ Great British Anthems (8572504) has been described as “essential listening” (Gramophone).

For the fourth and penultimate volume of his Fauré series, Eric Le Sage has been joined by Alexandre Tharaud, Emmanuel Pahud, and François Salque, long-standing accomplices, in order to record these pieces for four hands. Recipient of numerous prizes both in France and abroad, this complete Fauré series is already asserting itself as a reference for the interpretation of Gabriel Fauré’s chamber music with piano.

Evgeny Kissin - The Early Recordings (2007) 5 CD Box Set [Historic Russian Archives]
EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue&Log) ~ 1.1 Gb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 703 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans included
Genre: Classical | Label: Brilliant Classics | # 8528 | Time: 04:47:31

This is the second of Brilliant's box sets devoted to Russian recordings from Evgeny Kissin. Labeled as early, these live concert performances from 1984 to 1990 carry us from the day after Kissin turned 13 (Mozart Cto. #12 K. 414) to age 18 (Mozart Cto. #20, K. 466), with most readings clustering in the range of 1985-89. Russians were well aware of the marvel in their midst; the pianist's American breakthrough occurred in 1990 when he debuted at Carnegie Hall's centennial season. No one since Richter, debuting almost thirty years before, had made such a heady entry, and Richter was past fifty when he came here (briefly, since he loathed American capitalism and the pace of life in our big cities).

Ensemble Plus Ultra - From Spain to Eternity (2014)
EAC Rip | Flac (Tracks + cue + log) | 281 MB | MP3 320Kbps CBR | 169 MB | 1 CD | Full Scans
Genre: Classical | Label: Archiv Produktion | Catalog Number: 002054502

In 2011 DG released a spectacular 10-CD anthology on Archiv Produktion with Ensemble Plus Ultra (EPU), “the finest British early music singers” (Early Music Today), commemorating the 400th anniversary of Tomas de Victoria’s death. This box sold about 6.100 units worldwide and won a Gramophone award. Now the award winning ensemble is back with a major recording project to mark the 400th anniversary of the death of El Greco in 2014 – composers including Cristobal de Morales, Alonso Lobo and Alonso de Tejeda were prolific in Toledo during the 37 years El Greco lived and worked there, and much of this music certainly inspired his painting.
