Patchwork is a chance to join Eastern-European composers of the XXth century. Sonatas for flute and piano from Prokofiev, Enescu, Schulhoff and Muczynski show the strong personalities of the universal Masters. Those vibrant musics are made up with dancing & scintillating rhythms. The soul of the Slavic culture is being displayed here, on the model of warm and coloured mosaics of fabrics. Poetic dream-like and tender worlds are then arising, that enhance the unique musical sound of this duo.

If the number of compositions written for a specific instrument is any indication of a predilection, then Ferdinand Ries did indeed have a soft place in his heart for the flute. He penned no fewer than six quartets for flute and string trio, a quintet for flute, violin, two violas, and violoncello, a trio for piano, flute and violoncello, and many works for flute and piano - more works than for any other wind instrument. His first Flute Quartet presents itself as a grand, imposing quartet in the affirmative key of C major and contains many surprising elements.

The Murail "Tellur" is a fantastic work, in fact when you hear the opening it doesn't sound like a guitar, more like electronic music,it begins in the high register,harmonics used, that slowly then decends, the impetus of the work is the flamenco style of playing mixed with these extended techniques, The French avant-garde, French composers are not prolific, they hone single works for months prior to writing, and really only write single works within any genre, (this is Murail's only work for the guitar) The Lachenmann by contrast is a early work before he really discovered his voice and relays, relies on the performers reciting text of Chris Caudwell,activist like stuff that today sounds very dated in a self-conscious way.

Bartok's Duos are triple-threats: progressions of very brief practice works for violinists from students to skilled artists; transformations of folk dances and songs into art works; and pieces for concert performance, either piecemeal or complete. The Keller-Pilz duo makes its own sequence of the 44 primarily to heighten contrasts and sustain interest, a practice sanctioned by Bartok since the published order progressing from easiest to most difficult doesn't complement the pure listening experience. This revised order certainly works in these spirited performances.

A magnificent CD that comes from Hungary, the country where the violin is almost a "national instrument". Nicolo Paganini (1782-1840), besides being the greatest violinist of all times and a virtuoso guitarist, he composed many violin-centered works many of which included the guitar. This CD contains selections from Paganini's most significant and mature cycle of sonatas, the "Centone di Sonate". The recording opens with the famous "Cantabile in D major", a veritable gem. You will find a nice multilingual booklet included. Enjoy.

Duos for Violin & Guitar (1990)

Classical music | MP3 | 192 kbps | 16 tracks, ~65 MB | Year 1990

Composer: Mauro Giuliani, Niccolo Paganini
Performer: John Williams [guitar], Itzhak Perlman

The sound of these instruments in duo is exquisite. The performances here are stunning. Itzhak's violin sings in the hands of its master. Mr. Williams' mastery of the guitar is no less great in its power to move. (customer review - from Amazon)

Anna Maria Staśkiewicz and Bartosz Koziak, two of the international successes of the artists, have recorded a special program presenting the most interesting compositions of the duo of violin and cello, rarely found in the musical literature. Although Ludwig van Beethoven's writing was successful, one can get the impression that this combination of instruments reached its apogee in the first half of the twentieth century. The works include Bohuslav Martinů, Zoltán Kodály and Maurice Ravel.

Feld’s Concerto for flute, string orchestra, piano, harp and percussion is the work that set the idea to record this rather unusual repertoire in motion. This piece is one of the cases in music history where a decent work is at risk of wrongly being forgotten. It is played far too rarely. The outward-thrusting eruptive energy, which might not be typically associated with the flute, is what intrigued me. Weinberg’s brilliant version of Concerto no. 2 op. 148 for flute and string orchestra is recorded here for the first time ever and was another important item for me, even though I initially harboured some doubts when putting the programme together.
