Recorded: June 2009 at Propstei St. Gerold


It was in 1993 when Norwegian saxophonist Jan Garbarek and the Hilliard Ensemble, a vocal quartet from Britain focused on music of the Renaissance, have first recorded together. Their outstanding piece “Officium”, with Garbarek as an additional free-ranging ‘voice’, has resulted in consistently inventive music making since then and sold more than one million copies. The follower “Mnemosyne” (1998) took the story further, expanding the repertoire beyond ‘early music’ to embrace works both ancient and modern.
Now, after another decade of shared experiences, Garbarek and the Hilliards found together once again in the St. Gerold´s monastery and recorded their third album “Officium Novum”. Its central focus lies, besides music from Russia, France, Spain and the Estonian Arvo Pärt, on the music of Armenia based on the adaptations of Komitas Vardapet, pieces which draw upon both medieval sacred music and the bardic tradition of the Caucasus. Therefore the musicians have traveled to the countries, studied the music and present it with a passion which shows another unexpected advancement.

Franz Joseph Haydn - Keyboard Concerto - Franz Vorraber, Castle Chamber Orchestra (2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Franz Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)
Artist: Franz Vorraber, Castle Chamber Orchestra
Title: Haydn: Keyboard Concerto in G Major, Hob. XVIII:4
Genre: Classical
Label: © K&K Verlagsanstalt
Release Date: 2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: Qobuz
Duration: 19:18
Recorded: Bad Homburg Castle, Germany


Papa Haydn - nothing of the sort! The great musician always knew how to entertain people without using cheep templates filled with gaudy timbres or highly dramatic gestures. For him, joie de vivre is admissible, even desirable. Behind this rhythmic vitality and all the gestures, the master distinguishes and seduces people to superior thoughts, too. Little is known about the creation of the piano concert in G major. Guaranteed is just a date of performance on April 28th, 1784 at the Concert spirituel in Paris with the blind Viennese pianist Maria Theresia Paradis, whom i. a. Mozart composed for. The importance of Haydn as author of concertos is still underestimated in the History of Music. This particular concerto is composed for a string quartet only, without blowers. It comprises a typical, classically built work full of surprises and embellishments. This extent of humor and playfulness will rarely be accomplished by composers later born. --Franz Vorraber
