Johannes Brahms - Piano Concertos - Daniel Barenboim, Staatskapelle Berlin, Gustavo Dudamel (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz


Сomposer: Johannes Brahms (1833-1897)
Artist: Daniel Barenboim, Staatskapelle Berlin, Gustavo Dudamel
Title: Brahms - Piano Concertos
Genre: Classical
Label: © Deutsche Grammophon
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: highresaudio.com
Duration: 01:42:06
Recorded: September 2014,Philharmonie, Berlin, Germany


This album was recorded live at the Berliner Philharmonie in September 2014 with high critical acclaim of the performances. Not only the common South American roots of both artists but also the precise and energetic playing of Barenboim and the “volcanic” temperament of Dudamel make them a “Dream couple”.
Barenboim himself has a very high opinion of Dudamel which he expressed after one of the concerts: “Whenever I had to play myself, I was able to count on him completely. And when I didn’t have to play, it was a joy to see how well he works with the orchestra. I’m well placed to make this observation as I’ve been playing these concertos since 1958.”
After his successful album together with Yuja Wang, this is Dudamel’s second recording as conductor with a soloist.
The second Piano Concerto with its four movements is one of the longest and most demanding concertos ever written and the final Allegretto grazioso features one of the most carefree movements that Brahms ever wrote and which is also notable – in Alfred Brendel’s words – for its “unsurpassable pianistic perversions”.

Benedikt Jahnel Trio - Equilibrium (2012) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/48kHz


Artist: Benedikt Jahnel Trio
Title: Equilibrium
Genre: Jazz
Label: © ECM Records GmbH | ECM Player | ECM Reviews
Release Date: 2012
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 48kHz/24bit
Source: Qobuz
Duration: 00:53:43
Recorded: July 2011, Auditorio Radiotelevisione svizzera, Lugano


„Equilibrium“ is the ECM debut of a German/American/Spanish trio, which through frequent touring has grown into a remarkably tight and stylistically unique unit in recent years. Fuelled by the tension created through the contrasting styles of pianist Benedikt Jahnel (whose approach is characterised by an unusual interest in rhythmic subdivisions) and drummer Howard (who, in Jahnels words, “treats and perceives rhythmic phrases as melodical lines without fixed micro units”), and with bass player Antonio Miguel often the musical mediator, the group’s sound draws subtly from classical influences as well as contemporary concepts of groove. Leader Jahnel, also known as a member of Cyminology, has sharpened his profile playing with the Metropol Orchestra, Phil Woods, Johannes Enders, Charlie Mariano, Wolfgang Muthspiel, Dave Liebman and John Abercrombie. Produced by Manfred Eicher at Radio Televisione Svizzera in Lugano the seven tracks on “Equilibrium”, all Jahnel originals/compositions, strike a unique and delicate balance between composed parts and improvisation or group improvisation.

Johann Sebastian Bach - Organ Works - Masaaki Suzuki (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Johann Sebastian Bach (1685–1750)
Artist: Masaaki Suzuki
Title: J.S. Bach: Organ Works
Genre: Classical
Label: © BIS Records AB
Item Number: BIS-SACD-2111
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: eclassical.com
Duration: 01:19:26
Recorded: July 2014 at the Martinikerk, Groningen, The Netherlands


The recipient of the 2012 City of Leipzig Bach Medal, Masaaki Suzuki has earned an enviable reputation as an interpreter of the music of Johann Sebastian Bach – as a reviewer in International Record Guide has put it: 'With Suzuki you can hear Bach's heart beat'. To a wide audience he is known as the director of Bach Collegium Japan, and the moving force behind the ensemble's acclaimed recordings of Bach's complete sacred cantatas. Perhaps less well known is that he began his career – at the age of 12! – playing the organ at church services in Kobe, where he was born. Suzuki has remained true to the organ throughout his life, and for BIS he has previously recorded Bach's German Organ Mass, as well as programmes of Buxtehude and Sweelinck. He here appears on a disc which combines some of Bach's best-loved works for the instrument, including the D minor Toccata and Fugue, the Partitas on ‘O Gott, du frommer Gott’, BWV 767, the Canonic Variations, BWV 769, and the celebrated Prelude and Fugue in E minor, BWV 548. The recording was made in Groningen's Martinikerk, with Suzuki performing on the renowned organ, one of the most important and impressive in the Netherlands.

Isaac Albeniz, Enrique Granados - Piano Concertos - Melani Mestre, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Martyn Brabbins (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Isaac Albéniz (1860-1909), Enrique Granados (1867-1916)
Artist: Melani Mestre, BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra, Martyn Brabbins
Title: The Romantic Piano Concerto ~ 65: Albéniz & Granados - Piano Concertos
Genre: Classical
Label: © Hyperion Records
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: hyperion-records
Duration: 76 minutes 58 seconds
Recorded: January 2012, City Halls, Candleriggs, Glasgow, Scotland

Volume 65 (have you got them all?) of Hyperion’s Romantic Piano Concerto series journeys to Spain and the heart-on-sleeve world there to be found. The Albéniz Concierto fantástico owes much to Schumann and Chopin, albeit with an added drizzle of the Iberian peninsula; the perennially popular Rapsodia española, on the other hand, throws all such classical models to the wind.
Granados never actually got round to writing his piano concerto, so our pianist here—Hyperion debutant Melani Mestre—has done it for him. And it’s a romp. The first movement is pretty much ‘echt’, from Granados’ sketches for a putative piano concerto, but thereafter it’s a hugely enjoyable what-if …

Genre: Classical
Label: © SFS Media
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit
Source: Qobuz
Duration: 00:57:30
Recorded live at Davies Symphony Hall – a venue of the San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center, City and County of San Francisco.

Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony offer the world-premiere recording of John Adams’ Absolute Jest, commissioned by the orchestra, alongside the composer’s Grand Pianola Music, another SFS commission from 30 years earlier, conducted here by the composer. Michael Tilson Thomas and the San Francisco Symphony join forces with America’s most-performed living composer, John Adams, in a colossal album featuring Adams’s Absolute Jest and Grand Pianola Music. Hear Adams’s inspired and witty take on Beethoven’s spirited scherzos in this first-ever recording of his SFS- commissioned Absolute Jest. Also featured is Grand Pianola Music, with its tongue-in-cheek allusions to Beethoven’s Emperor Concerto, written for and premiered by the SFS. Both works speak to the deeply personal and vital relationship of some of the top musicians of our time: John Adams, MTT, and the SFS.
