Belenus Quartett / String Quartets / Haydn - Bartók

 

Powerful, virtuosic and breathtaking string quartet

The Belenus Quartet was awarded with the special prize for best Haydn interpretation at the "Sandor Vegh Competition" in 2012. With exciting vitality, sensitivity to rich nuances and powerful virtuosity, the four young musicians are brilliant and breathtaking in their reading of Bartók's String Quartet No. 4; there is hardly another quartet in the literature which features such depth and diversity of sound in all of the instruments. Each of the five movements creates a special sound cosmos. For example, hardly anywhere else in the string quartet literature is there a movement of pizzicato throughout like the fourth movement.

A treat for audiophiles is this special edition limited to 999 copies on 2, 45 rpm vinyl records which is 180 g pressing with exclusive packaging (2 separate cases with booklet included in a boxed set).

CD11512 Euphony b200
 

Trio Euphony / Music for a while

 

Achieving the (seemingly) impossible

There is probably no more striking a combination for an ensemble than the one presented here under the name of "Trio Euphony" (Greek for "beautiful sound). On the one hand, the harp with its floating, "silvery", delicate and French timbre and the tuba on the other, with its dark and strong bass sound in its low range, and its incredibly dense sound in the high range. The unifying element is the soprano, the human voice as mediator between all of the bold colours, moving fully independently between the two great and yet so different instruments. This enables a diversity which seems impossible but induces the instruments to create surprising timbral effects.

This debut album is a highly eclectic and colourful mix of arrangements and original compositions for the trio as well as for duos for Harp and Soprano, Harp and Tuba, and Soprano and Tuba.

CD11613 Trio Rafale b200
 

Trio Rafale / Piano Trios / Brahms – Vasks

 

Dramatic, Mysterious, Expressive

The name of the young piano trio Rafale comes from the French word for gust - in addition to gale force storm winds, gust can also mean a warm air stream or a cool breeze. It is thus a metaphor for every type of musical gesture.

Within a short time, the young trio has already won a remarkable number of prizes. Recently, Trio Rafale won both the jury prize and the audience prize at the Migros Culture Percentage Chamber Music Competition in 2013. Before that, Trio Rafale won the first prize at the prestigious Melbourne International Chamber Music Competition 2011.

They live up to their name in this new recording, whether it be powerful or agile, of Johannes Brahms C-major Piano Trio Op. 101 and "Episodi e Canto perpetuo"; the Latvian composer Peteris Vasks writes of his work, dedicated to French composer Olivier Messiaen": "It describes a difficult journey through the misery, disappointment and suffering of love; this journey is the centre of gravity of the canto." Trio Rafale captivates listeners' emotions in its portrayal.

CD22012 DonQuixote b200

 

Richard Strauss (1864-1949): "Don Quixote"

Fantastic Variations on a Theme of Knightly Character, op. 35 (1897)

 
Duisburger Philharmoniker (Duisburg Philharmonic Orchestra)
Jonathan Darlington

 

In one great dramatic arc … appealing and valuable

In Vol. 20 of our LIVING CONCERT SERIES, Jonathan Darlington and the Duisburg Philharmonic again show their special feel for the colour of sound and orchestral balance. In one great dramatic arc, Darlington leads them through the idealized dream world lived out by and inevitably the downfall of the story's hero Don Quixote. But the work is more than a symphonic tone poem and programme music, more than a set of variations and due to the presentation two solo instruments, more than a symphonic concerto. It is the combination of these elements which makes "Don Quixote" so incredibly appealing and valuable.
