Iain Quinn - Kodály: Organ Works (2024)
FLAC (tracks), Lossless +Booklet | 1:10:54 | 241Mb
Genre: Classical

This album brings together Kodály’s complete organ music with the world premiere recording of Erno Dohnányi’s only piece for organ, the eloquent Fantasie. Sokola’s intense and compelling Passacaglia holds a special place in the organ repertoire, Wiedermann’s Pastorale dorico was composed during the dark days of the Second World War, and Novák’s attractive Prelude is a study in subdued tonal contrasts. Zoltán Kodály’s organ works have a distinct musical language unlike any other composer, with the imposing Organoedia ad missam lectam being amongst his most important non-choral works from the post-war era, and Epigrams, originally for voice and piano, heard here in a transcription by Gábor Trajtler.

Genre: Classical

Polyphonic vocal music, with its diversity of languages, is a particularly fertile field of experimentation for today’s composers.Jean Guillou’s work includes a variety of examples of choral writing, such as the Judith Symphonie opus 21, the oratorio Le Jugement dernier (without opus number), the Missa Interrupta opus 51, and Echo opus 60. Two other more chamber-like works are written for a small number of solo voices: Peace opus 43, for eight mixed voices and organ, and Aube opus 46, this time for twelve mixed voices and organ. In these last two works, the organ is not to be considered as an ‘accompanying’ instrument in the traditional sense, but as a character in its own right, whose confrontation with all the voices, the other protagonists, will weave a very special dramaturgy, intended for the musical translation of the poetic text that constitutes both the support and the source of inspiration.

FLAC (tracks), Lossless +Booklet | 1:23:09 | 378 Mb
Genre: Classical

Bach's trio sonatas, originally written as teaching pieces for his eldest son Wilhelm Friedemann, show Johann Sebastian Bach at the zenith of his compositional art: three independent parts engage in a captivating dialogue, combining cantabile melody lines with a skilful yet natural-sounding counterpoint - all embedded in an experimental formal design with balanced proportions.Martin Neu embraces this core repertoire with his lively and eloquent interpretation on the Ahrend Organ in Herzogenaurach. The unusual directness and proximity to the pipework of the organ, combined with excellent acoustics, create a unique sound experience. For the first time, this is also available in immersive Dolby Atmos - a sonic innovation allowing the music to be experienced with unprecedented intensity.

This generously filled two-disc Harmonia Mundi release includes not only Handel's complete set of six organ concertos published after his death as his Opus 7, but also the organ concerto known as "The Cuckoo and the Nightingale," plus three works for solo harpsichord: a fugue in G minor and two chaconnes. The recording has transparent yet immediate super audio digital sound that puts the music in the room with the listener. These performances are as charming and engaging as the finest ever recorded. Organist and harpsichordist Richard Egarr is impressive in both roles. As the organ soloist, Egarr is strong and sensitive in the concertos, with a real talent for improvisation in the cadenzas.

Arguably Pachelbel's masterpiece, "Apollo's Lyre" is a series of six arias, each of which consists of a set of highly contrasted variations on the initial theme. As a composer, Pachelbel was perhaps most interested in the variation principal, in direct contrast to his great successor, Bach, who used the form only rarely (but then typically wrote the greatest variation work ever–the "Goldberg Variations"). The musical argument is easy to follow, and the tunes themselves simple and memorable. John Butt frames the work with two mighty chaconnes. A chaconne is basically the same thing as a passacaglia, namely a series of variations over a constantly repeating bass line. Try this disc. You're in for a pleasant surprise.

Johann Jacob Froberger war einer der bekanntesten und zugleich rätselhaftesten Musiker des 17. Jahrhunderts. 1616 in Stuttgart geboren und 1667 im Dienst der verwitweten Herzogin Sybilla aus der Mömpelgarder Nebenlinie des Hauses Württemberg gestorben, bilden sich in seinem Schaffen alle wichtigen Formen, Satzkonzepte und Ausdrucksideale seiner Epoche ab. Froberger fasziniert gerade in der heutigen Zeit, da alles »Europäische« wieder einmal auf dem Prüfstand steht.

The infinite cosmos of French organ music is Ben van Oosten's realm, and he now has recordd the complete organ works of Camille Saint-Saëns in a sump-tuous box set. He performs on the Cavaillé Coll organ in Ste. Madeleine in Paris, one of the most beautiful instruments of its kind and an organ with a big orchestral sound on which Saint-Saëns himself left his traces for more than two decades.

The combination of Neville Marriner and his always sterling evocation of excellence from the Academy of St. Martin's-in-the-Fields offers the perfect accompaniment and support for Malcolm's playing. The late George Malcolm was a brilliantly gifted organist even though his real specialty had always been harpsichord. He always seems to find the lightest most delightful playing to fit the idea of the piece.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart a composé dix-sept sonates d'église (sonate da chiesa) entre 1772 et 1780. Il s'agit de pièces brèves en un seul mouvement conçues pour être interprétées durant la célébration de la messe entre l'épître et l'évangile (d'où le nom qu'on leur attribue parfois : sonates de l'épître). Trois des sonates sont écrites pour un effectif plus orchestral, qui comprend des hautbois, cors, trompettes et timbales, alors que les autres sont écrites pour orgue et cordes (sans les altos). Dans huit des sonates, l'orgue a une partie de solo obbligato (K 224/241a, 225/241b, 244, 245, 263, 328/317c, 329/317a et 336/336d), alors que dans les neuf autres, l'orgue joue uniquement la basse continue.

Whilst Handel was renowned in his lifetime as a virtuoso organist, his art was based on improvisation. He left no developed oeuvre of keyboard pieces which would give us an idea of his full capabilities as an organist. His organ concertos are actually theatre pieces, developed by Handel to support his oratorio performances. Handel brought in an organ to act as continuo in the choruses and developed the idea of an organ concerto as a way of adding extra novelty. At the oratorios, the audience could not rely on novelty and virtuoso display from the latest Italian singers so Handel’s performances on the organ were a sort of substitute.

Mit einer attraktiven, opulent gestalteten und sehr empfehlenswerten Doppel-CD wartet die polnische, derzeit an der Mainzer Musikhochschule (Johannes Gutenberg-Universität) wirkende Organistin auf. Anna Pikulska vereint hier die beiden großartigen Orgeln aus der ersten Hälfte des 18. Jahrhunderts von Tobias Heinrich Gottfried Trost in Waltershausen und von Gottfried Silbermann im Freiberger Dom. Das ist eine glänzende, bisher noch nicht verwirklichte Idee und zugleich der besondere Aspekt dieser Audio-Dokumentation, denn in der Gegenüberstellung dieser Höhepunkte des thüringischen und sächsischen Orgelbaus mit sehr konträren Konzeptionen eröffnen sich natürlich beste Vergleichsmöglichkeiten.
