Johannes Brahms (1833-1897):

Daria Kameneva, Piano

 

Daria Kameneva, who was awarded first prize in the European Piano Competition in France in 2011, debuts with her first CD recording with works by Johannes Brahms. Markedly powerful, as in the early, potent Sonata No. 2, op 2 (1852), but equally subtle, for example in the Four Piano Pieces op. 119 (1893) belonging to Brahms’ later works with their intimate character far removed from superficial virtuosity, she displays the full range of her abilities. The programme is topped off with the Variations on an Original Theme in D major Op. 21 from the year 1857. Daria Kameneva performs on a Shigeru Kawai Grand Piano.

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).

Junko Inada, Piano

 

Subtle yet glorious - Junko Inada's Rachmaninov

Junko Inada is currently one of the most respected pianists in Japan and is admired for her "not typically Japanese dynamics". Educated mostly in France, she had one of her most important successes at the time at the Rachmaninov International Music Competition in Moscow. Her greatness as an interpreter of Rachmaninov, her imposing virtuosity, great sound and her subtle yet glorious art of piano playing is shown on her new album: the beautiful Variations on a theme by Corelli, op. 42, the delicate Vocalise, op. 34 No. 14 and the noble sound world of the 13 Préludes op. 32.

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.
