It was in Prague and Brno, the two largest cities in what is now the Czech Republic, that Antonín Dvorák and Leo Janácek the principal representatives of the nineteenth-century Czech national school, along with Bedrich Smetana launched their respective compositional careers. While Janácek, thirteen years younger than Dvorák, saw the latter as a father figure, the two men shared the same poetic Slavic soul. Indeed, Janácek said of Dvorák: I could exchange his personality for his works; it is as if his melodies came straight from my heart. Nothing can ever break such a bond.

Here is the box containing Beethoven’s five Piano Concertos performed by Hannes Minnaar and The Netherlands Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Jan Willem de Vriend.
So far two single volumes had been issued: while the one including Concertos nos. 4 & 5 was acclaimed by Gramophone as: "beginning a Beethoven cycle with the Fourth and Fifth Concertos is a bold move but one that pays off in all sorts of ways", the same magazine welcomed the disc with Concertos nos. 1 & 2 for “its pleasing mix of finesse and drive”.

Jan Lisiecki puts the spotlight on rarely recorded works of the orchestral Chopin, the repertoire that became his calling card and kick-started his international career. Jan’s release of both piano concertos (recorded at the age of 13 and 14) with Sinfonia Varsovia and Howard Shelley was praised as one of the most exciting contributions to Chopin’s 200th anniversary year in 2010. The two live recordings that have earned Jan the prestigious Diapason Découverte award in May 2010, placed him on the map as a promising newcomer and resulted in his exclusive DG recording deal. Now, Jan has fulfilled his dreams of completing the orchestral Chopin repertoire: To record all remaining works for piano and orchestra recorded in the studio with the NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchester, conducted by the Polish conductor Krzysztof Urbański.

Genre: Classical | Label: Supraphon | Catalog: SU 4107-2

Following the collections of symphonies (Czech Philharmonic Orchestra, Kletzki, SU 4051-2) and violin sonatas (Suk, Panenka, SU 4077-2), Supraphon is now releasing the complete Beethoven concertante pieces. All of them (including the Triple Concerto and the genre-unique Fantasia for Piano, Chorus and Orchestra) came into being within a mere sixteen years, between 1793 and 1809. Although Beethoven deemed the piano "an imperfect instrument", his five piano concertos form one of the cornerstones of his oeuvre and represent a significant landmark in this genre.

« Il faut à l’interprète de Zelenka le sens du show et de l’humour, l’art de la polyphonie, le tact du timing, le goût d’une démesure triomphante mais légère. Ce que l’équipe d’Adam Viktora confirme disque après disque. […] L’or se pose donc sur un volume passionnant, dont les premières mondiales (cinq des huit pièces) comptent des trésors absolus à écouter sans tarder, le Nisi Dominus ZWV 92 et le Lauda Jerusalem ZWV 104. Efficacité thématique, mobilité harmonique, diversité formelle : Zelenka porte la concision discursive, l’attention au texte, à des sommets de prouesse d’écriture.» (Diapason, mai 2017 / Sophie Roughol)

It’s been well over a year since Jan Blomqvist dropped debut album ‘Remote Control’, but its charm has far from faded. The critically acclaimed album proved one of the most elegant bodies of work to see release in early 2016 and that is exactly what Jan Blomqvist builds on as he releases its sixteen-track remix album: ‘Remote Control (Remixed)’.

The survival of classical music may hinge on its ability to appear prominently outside the standard venues of concert halls and recording studios, thereby reaching a much larger audience of listeners who might otherwise never be treated to the masterworks of the canonical repertoire. New York-based ensemble the Knights seeks to do that by coupling its impressively broad repertoire (ranging from classical to jazz to world music) with a desire to play in locations where one might not expect to see an orchestra.
