Claire Chevallier - Liszt: Fever
Classical | FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/96 kHz | 72:05 min | 1.18 GB | Digital booklet
Label: La Dolce Volta | Tracks: 07 | Rls.date: 2011

« FEVER » is a powerful, impassioned portrait raised to sublimity by the magical sound of Claire Chevallier's Erard. A great collector of pianos, she lives surrounded by them; they are part of her daily world. It was after buying an 1876 Erard, Liszt's favourite piano, that she felt the presence of the great composer behind its very characteristic sound and found she wanted to make this recording.

"Continuing its excellent series of Guarnieri symphonies, the São Paulo Symphony Orchestra under John Neschling presents another programme of marvellous music that deserves the widest possible exposure outside of its native Brazil … Neschling and his orchestra turn in first-rate playing … this is world-class music making in the service of world-class music. Glorious sonics, solid on the bottom and bright but never shrill on top, complete a most attractive picture."

Label: Harmonia Mundi | Tracks: 21 | Rls.date: 2011

Since Bach was more than cryptic in indicating the instrumentation of what is often regarded as his musical testament, The Art of Fugue has been subjected to an infinite variety of arrangements for all sorts of instruments. This recording follows a series of performances in which the musicians of the Akademie für Alte Musik Berlin tested a highly unusual concept: rather than play uniformly one after the other the contrapuncti and canons that Bach left us, they have made great efforts to diversify both the instrumentarium and the macrostructure – to the point where we end up, to our delight, experiencing their interpretation as an exciting musical game for several players!

Label: LSO Live | Tracks: 04 | Rls.date: 2005

Few works stir up as much debate over their 'meaning' as Shostakovich's Fifth Symphony. And equally few works can boast an interpreter with such insight as Mstislav Rostropovich. His friendship with the composer gives him an almost unique understanding of Shostakovich's inner traumas, and as with the 2002's outstandingly successful LSO Live recording of the Symphony No 11, he inspires the LSO's players to the heights of virtuosity.

Classical | FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/96 kHz | 63:00 min | 890 MB | Digital booklet
Label: Sony Classical | Tracks: 24 | Rls.date: 2013

Arcadi Volodos is one of the world’s best pianists, celebrated as a “genius” and the “new Horowitz” for the unique combination of outstanding virtuosity and profound and expressive musicality. Volodos devotes his new CD to the hardly known Catalan composer Frederic Mompou. He believes that Mompou’s solo piano works are of outstanding quality and open new worlds. The fact that Mompou’s music is hardly known is a key to success for this CD. It can only reveal its deep und unique quality in the magnificent interpretation of Volodos. The music of Catalonian composer Federico Mompou (1893-1987) is almost completely unknown today. Unjustly so, in the opinion of Russian star pianist Arcadi Volodos, who has devoted his new solo CD to this remarkable musical personality.

Label: Mirare | Tracks: 21 | Rls.date: 2014

A major figure of 18th century musical Europe, Telemann enjoyed in his time a bigger reputation even than Bach. This great master of instrumental music, open to French and Italian influences and to the new galant style that flourished in Germany, succeeded with considerable panache, especially in his chamber music, in creating a synthesis of European styles at the crossroads between Baroque and Classicism.

In 1878 Édouard Lalo wrote to the Spanish violin virtuoso Pablo de Sarasate: ‘Your arrival in my life has been my greatest artistic opportunity… without you, I would have continued to write insignificant odds and ends’. The three works gathered here all spring from this arrival, beginning with the Violin Concerto, composed in 1873. The melodious and charming concerto held a great significance for the composer, who regarded it as his first work truly worthy of the name. In the eye of the public it was soon to be overshadowed, however.

Electronic | FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/96 kHz | 40:57 min | 939 MB | Digital booklet
Label: Ed Banger Records | Tracks: 11 | Rls.date: 2011

Where Justice’s self-titled debut took a heavy metal approach to electronica, its long-awaited 2011 sophomore album plays with a palpable passion for bygone progressive rock. “Horsepower” opens with a cavalcade of vintage synthesizer tones interlocking with angular guitar lines, sounding like the robots from Daft Punk have kidnapped Rick Wakeman. But dance floor disciples need not fear; the Parisian duo of Gaspard Augé and Xavier de Rosnay delivers a disco-dappled standout jam in the following “Civilization,” where Ali Love provides androgynously sexy guest vocals.

Elizabeth Kenny and Theatre of the Ayre revel in some of the most extraordinary music of the seventeenth century. Focusing on the ayre—the central part of a masque—The Masque of Moments offers a fascinating glimpse into a world of audacious and experimental virtuosity.

Classical | FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/96 kHz | 64:19 min | 1.04 GB | Digital booklet
Label: Hyperion | Tracks: 18 | Rls.date: 2017

Natalie Clein, whose previous recording of the music of Ernest Bloch was described as ‘inspired’ by The Sunday Times, turns to his three suites for solo cello as part of a recital of works written in the aftermath of the Second World War. The sombre voice of the cello seems especially apposite in music of such deep seriousness, Ligeti’s short sonata providing an energetic and life-affirming finale.

Qualche settimana fa recensivamo il primo libro del Wohltemperierte Klavier eseguito all’organo da Daniele Boccaccio. In quell’occasione si ricordava come il termine “klavier”, utilizzato da Bach per indicare lo strumento da usare per l’esecuzione, sia in realtà molto generico, indicando qualunque strumento a tastiera: clavicembalo, clavicordo, fortepiano, organo, e quindi anche ciò che nel 700 ancora non esisteva, il pianoforte.
