Three Serenades for strings, written around the turn of the 19th and 20th century, sharing a full blooded romanticism, warmth and even nostalgia, characteristic of that period: the String Serenades by Janácek, the famous Serenade by Elgar and the lesser known but no less attractive Serenade by Vassily Kalinnikov, friend of Tchaikovsky.

While not a lot of its classical pursuits in the 2000s have panned out, Sony Classical has had good luck with violinists, thanks due to the popularity of contract player Hilary Hahn and an apparent assumption of the recording duties of the great Canadian violinist Lara St. John. This is Latvian violinist Baiba Skride's third disc, the first two being released simultaneously in 2004 and, of these, the violin solo disc – containing works by Ysayë, Bartók, and Bach – winning a German Echo Classic award.

The Quatuor Diotima offers a passionate performance of both quartets that would merit consideration in any case, but sample the viola d'amore's opening utterance at the beginning of track 9, and you may decide, even if you are already a confirmed admirer of Janácek's tense but richly romantic music, that a rehearing of these works is in order.

Label: Naxos - Date: 1996

Leos Janácek (1854-1928) is regarded as the greatest Czech composer of the early twentieth century. In his early works, which included the opera Sárka (1888), and numerous vocal and instrumental works, Janácek followed a traditional, Romantic idiom, typical of late nineteenth century music. Having completed Sárka, however, Janácek immersed himself in the folk music of his native Moravia, gradually developing an original compositional style. Eschewing regular metrical phrasing, Janácek developed a declamatory method of setting the voice that follows the natural rhythmic patterns of the Czech language. Characteristically, Janácek allowed these patterns to inform the music itself. In addition, Janácek's harmonies, forms and orchestration ………

Janácek began his Mass around 1908, left it to gather dust for 20 years, then turned it into the first draft of the Glagolitic Mass. Paul Wingfield's reconstruction draws substantially on the original draft of the Glagolitic Mass to the extent of including a complete movement (the Sanctus) from it. Clearly Janácek knew best, and the only distinguishing moments are those bits recognisably from the Glagolitic Mass. Unquestionably, though, both the Missa brevis and Laudes organi are among Kodály's most inspired creations. Yet new recordings of favourite works are prone to disappoint.

After important contributions to the album 'Romancendres', pairing the music of Clara Schumann and Heinz Holliger, and an acclaimed recording with Carolin Widmann of Schumann's Violin Sonatas, here is the first ECM New Series solo disc from Hungarian pianist Dénes Várjon. It's an unusual repertoire for a recorded recital – of three masterworks of piano literature by Berg, Janácek and Liszt. The recital draws the listener in from the first moments – beginning with the dark, brooding language of Alban's Berg's Piano Sonata Op. 1, shaped in the shadow of Schoenberg, and continuing into the nebulous regions of Janácek's impressionistic and near-contemporaneous In The Mists, finally emerging into the clear light of Liszt's immense - and immensely-influential - B minor Sonata.

It is hard to describe Waggoner’s (b.1960) music. Stylistically, one hears hints of, among others, Ives’s large-scale vision, Janácek’s volatile emotional content, Bartók’s purity and rigor, Berg’s intensity, Messiaen’s mysticism, and Shostakovich’s fascination with great existential questions. The net result, however, strikes me as highly original and compelling, as attested by the seven works featured on this recording... The works that open and close the disc are improvisations for string quartet—the first is sarcastic and grotesque; the second, in which the ensemble seems unsuccessfully to search for tonality (and perhaps redemption), is haunting and moving.

Five-CD limited-edition box set, issued in time for the 30th anniversary of the Austrian chamber-music festival. “Edition Lockenhaus” returns long out-of-print titles to the catalogue, with some of the finest musicians of the New Series, including Gidon Kremer, Kim Kashkashian, Heinz Holliger, Thomas Zehetmair, Thomas Demenga, Robert Levin, Eduard Brunner and many more. Gidon Kremer: “The artistic atmosphere in Lockenhaus soon has everybody speaking on the same wavelength.” The set opens with previously unreleased recordings – from 2001 and 2008 – with Sir Simon Rattle and Roman Kofman conducting Kremerata Baltica in revelatory performances of Richard Strauss’s “Metamorphosen” and Olivier Messiaen’s “Trois petites Liturgies de la Présence Divine”: the committed interpretations convey the spirit of Lockenhaus. Discs two through five focus on music of César Franck, André Caplet, Francis Poulenc, Leos Janácek, Igor Stravinsky, Dmitri Shostakovich and Erwin Schulhoff. Original liner notes, an interview with Kremer, and new texts complete a very special edition.
