Milhaud’s six little symphonies are brief, lighthearted experiments in sound combinations, and they are also very charming. These performances are delightful … precise, spirited, brilliant …
I don’t see how anyone could go wrong with these performances, which MDG captures in bright, characterful sound.

…Ensemble Villa Musica was founded in 1990 when a group of principal players from several of Germany's major orchestras assembled for master classes in Mainz under the state-sponsored Villa Musica foundation. The players decided to form the group with no limitations in repertory, but with a focus on neglected masterworks of the past. Most of the members retained their posts in orchestras and/or on the faculties of universities or music schools. The ensemble's leader since its founding has been clarinetist Ulf Rodenhäuser…

Heitor Villa-Lobos' two numbered cello concerti come from the opposite ends of his output; the first Grande Concerto dates from 1915 and the second from 1953. In between there is another concertante work, the Fantasia for cello and orchestra, which is contemporaneous with the Bachianas Brasileiras No. 5 for soprano and eight cellos that remains Villa-Lobos' most popular work. In this MD&G issue, Heitor Villa-Lobos: Concertos for Violoncello and Orchestra, cellist Ulrich Schmid is heard with the Nordwestdeutsche Philharmonie under conductor Dominique Roggen in the numbered concertos only, although there easily would have been enough room on the 42-minute-long disc to accommodate the Fantasia as well.

Label: Klarthe

Étoile montante du violoncelle, Julie Sévilla-Fraysse s'attaque ici au répertoire d'Europe centrale dans toute sa splendeur. Elle le défend avec d'autant plus d'ardeur que la Sonate opus 8 de Zoltan Kodaly a très tôt influencé son jeu, privilégiant l'authenticité, la sensibilité et la pureté du son. Une approche à la fois simple, souple et poétique qui correspond parfaitement à l'inspiration folklorique de ces compositeurs.

Quando si parla di gemme letterarie, di macchine narrative i cui meccanismi funzionano come gli ingranaggi di un orologio, di storie che riescono a ospitare, in poche decine di pagine, il respiro della letteratura, si allude a qualcosa che è realmente esistito - a quell'altissimo artigianato che ha avuto per motivi imperscrutabili la sua grande stagione nei primi decenni del secolo, e di cui libri come In villa giustificano il rimpianto. Gli ingredienti di base dai quali nascevano questi capolavori erano spesso, doverosamente, elementari: qui, un décor quasi convenzionale (la Firenze frequentata dalla colonia inglese, vista però da una distanza più ravvicinata del solito), una donna bellissima e a suo modo perduta, due uomini molto diversi che se la contendono, e al centro uno scabroso fatto di sangue. Ma per combinarli ci voleva la mano di un maestro come Maugham.

"…If this imaginative mix of tenor/bass sonatas, rather than an all-cello recital, at first seems curious it works well in practice. Those already in possession of the rival accounts listed above may not want to duplicate these works further, though I would rate the present offering most highly; for those coming new to these works, start here." ~Grammophone
