Ulf Wallin - Reger Violin Sonatas, Op. 42 (2016)

Ulf Wallin - Reger Violin Sonatas, Op. 42
Classical | WEB FLAC (tracks) & d. booklet | 57:12 min | 341 MB
Label: CPO | Tracks: 14 | Rls.date: 2016

This release completes CPO's complete recordings of Max Reger's violin oeuvre. This extensive oeuvre includes all of Reger's compositional periods, from Op. 1 to his last, unfinished Op. 147. Op. 42 revealed itself as a supreme challenge for violinist Ulf Wallin, both technically and musicially. Wallin quickly realized why Reger, is with no doubt, a master of chromatic polyphony. Reger obviously took cues from J.S. Bach in his compositions as well as lyrical and harmonic design from Brahms and Liszt.

Faure-lovers have long prayed for reissue of the two sonatas from Grumiaux and Paul Crossley. And they won't be disappointed. The sound itself is pleasing. And there is a radiance in the playing suggesting an unerring understanding of structure and style that somehow goes hand in hand with the joyous spontaneity of new discovery. The hyper-sensitive suppleness of Grumiaux's shading and phrasing is a particular delight, as is his awareness that just as much of the musical message comes from the piano—particularly in the Second Sonata. As for Crossley, not for nothing has he come to be recognized as one of this country's most dedicated Faure specialists. It would certainly be difficult to over-praise the subtlety of the two artists' interplay in both works.

The present program features four sonatas for violin and piano written around 1920 by four composers of different nationalities and contrasting aesthetics, a representative panorama of the aesthetic profusion of musical Europe at that time. Here we find the relics and prolongations of Romanticism, the irruption of avant-gardes, and folk music being taken into account, this giving a new sense to the affirmation of musical nationalism.
Chloë Hanslip & Danny Driver - Beethoven: Violin Sonatas, Vol. 1 (2017)

Chloë Hanslip & Danny Driver - Beethoven: Violin Sonatas, Vol. 1
Classical | WEB FLAC (tracks) & d. booklet | 75:35 min | 298 MB
Label: RUBICON | Tracks: 12 | Rls.date: 2017

Chloë Hanslip and Danny Driver are approaching the culmination of a complete Beethoven Violin Sonata cycle where each concert is both broadcast live by the BBC on Radio 3, and recorded by Andrew Keener and Phil Rowlands for Rubicon. Beethoven’s ten violin sonatas represent the supreme challenge for a violin and piano duo, and the drama, visceral excitement and many intimate moments of these masterpieces is superbly captured in these live performances.

Tikhon Khrennikov was certainly an equivocal figure in the history of 20th-century Russian music. A composer with a tendency towards popular theatrical genres and lyricism, the naively optimistic nature of his music was soon noticed by the Soviet government, which took Khrennikov under its wing and appointed him Secretary of the reorganised Union of Composers in 1948 – a post he held for no less than 43 years. During his tenure in the role, Khrennikov witnessed the persecution of numerous artists who refused to comply with the USSR's dictated enthusiasm for all things socialist in musical culture. Such behaviour surely confirms his political stance, and yet it is known that Khrennikov on more than one occasion came to the aid of several musicians, protecting them from arrest and helping to forge the careers of many young and talented artists. This recording is historic in the sense that it features 3 Soviet child prodigies: Yevgeny Kissin, Maxim Vengerov and Vadim Repin, now household names in western musical life, then the perfect examples of successful Soviet education and training. Khrennikov himself is the soloist in his 3rd piano concerto.

Gérard Lesne founded the Il Seminario musicale Ensemble in 1985. Since 1990, the Ensemble has been in residence at the Royaumont Foundation, where it attracts vocalists and instrumentalists who share Lesne's enthusiam for the 17th and 18th century Italian repertoire. The musicians perform on old instruments and strive to reproduce as faithfully as possible the lilt and narrative line characteristic of the baroque style as expressed in works by composers such as Monteverdi, Cavalli, Scarlatti, Vivaldi, Caldara, Pergolesi, and the others. The size of the ensemble is variable depending on the repertoire. Based on a rich and varied continuo section (theorbo, cello, basson, double bass, organ and harpsichord) supporting one or more soloists, it can be expanded with the addition of a string quartet to make a small chamber orchestra suitable for performing chamber operas. Responsibility for the Ensemble's musical direction is shared by the instrumentalists and vocalists.
