"…Seven CDs is undoubtedly a major collection. There will inevitably be some frustrations that the enterprise was not more thorough in terms of repertoire, and as discussed, there are some howling omissions. Having made the point, let me conclude by acknowledging the high standards of performance and recording that lie at the heart of this set. While there may be a few regrets that it is not as comprehensive as it might (as it ought to?) have been, what we do have is undoubtedly well worth having." ~musicweb-international

How often have the three musicians of the Munich Piano Trio opened our ears with unique music! The new, the 9th GENUIN CD of the renowned ensemble is also a voyage of discovery to works that one encounters very rarely in the concert hall. And since the composer is none other than Richard Strauss (18641949), the credit for the musicians is even greater! We become acquainted with two youthful works, namely a piano trio from 1878 and a piano quartet from 1884. The Munich Piano Trio plays the music, which is worth listening to and masterfully composed, with verve and at the highest standard entirely worthwhile!

This is one of Deutsche Grammophon’s key releases for the Strauss year, which marks the composer’s 150th birthday. Thomas Hampson is widely regarded as one of the premier interpreters of German art song today. In 2014, American baritone Thomas Hampson celebrates Richard Strauss’ 150th anniversary with several concerts in Europe and North America and a new production of the composer’s Arabella at the Salzburg Easter Festival.

Label: Cypres | Tracks: 07 | Time: 49:29 min

A classical cellist, soloist of the Orchestre symphonique de la Monnaie, involved in chamber music, jazz/ rock and folk/fiddle meets an eclectic pianist familiar with Bach, Chopin, Franck or Corrigliano as much as with jazz and improvisation. Loco Motive Trio and Blade Runner band for the first one, Soledad for the second one and until 2014, Trio Talweg for both of them (founded in 2004 with Sébastien Surel) : Sébastien Walnier and Alexander Gurning pride very seriously opening up musical approaches, faithful to each musical style they play and free to travel from one world to another. Between «walking» and «awakening», Walning explores different musical styles in all simplicity.

A consummate artist whose approach to the cello was directed toward breathing life into the music, Paul Tortelier earned the respect and affection of countless colleagues. An enduring friendship with Pablo Casals found him playing, in the words of a French critic, Apollo to Casals' Jupiter. Like Casals, Tortelier emphasized using but one finger at a time on the string to allow free vibration. Fantasy and emotional freedom marked his performances and attracted numerous young players.

Despite his advanced age and the chaos surrounding him, Richard Strauss remained highly productive well into the 1940s. As the Second World War was coming to an end in 1944-45, the eighty-year-old composer was working on his Oboe Concerto and Sonatina No. 2 for winds, as well as the Metamorphosen for strings. While the latter work was an explicit response to the destruction Strauss was witnessing, in the Concerto and the Sonatina the composer seemed to be turning his mind away from the events surrounding him. There is a pastoral quality to the oboe concerto, with a highly tuneful solo part and more than occasional touches of nostalgia for the 18th century. Similarly, Strauss headed the score of the sonatina with a dedication ‘to the spirit of the immortal Mozart at the end of a life full of thankfulness’.
