Composed in 2012-13, »let me tell« you is a half-hour dramatic monologue, voiced by a character who requires us to hear her. That character is not quite the Ophelia of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. She has the same words, her entire text being made up from words Ophelia speaks in the play, but she uses these words in different ways, and certainly to express herself differently.

An original programme with which the Swiss pianist Olivier Cavé succeeds in summarizing two universes that might, however, a priori appear remote: Domenico Scarlatti vs. Joseph Haydn. In the same album, Olivier Cavé confronts two complementary visions of the keyboard. ‘With this project, I wanted to connect these two composers,’ he tells us, ‘for, when playing Haydn, I always had the feeling that he was familiar with Scarlatti’s music.’ For these two composers, the keyboard is the alphabet of a distinctive language; in a style both playful and mischievous, they composed with a bantering humour, unlimited amusement, unfailing virtuosity and a perfect sense of description. Paradoxically, the two composers meet in their slow movements, of unparalleled simplicity and amazing naturalness that give this music, generations apart, very great lyrical depth. This recording shows to what degree the impact of Scarlatti’s music on Haydn’s keyboard compositions is undeniable. For this project, Olivier Cavé has relied on the learned advice of the American musicologist Elaine Sisman.

Born into a musical family, he began to study the cello at the age of six. He refined his skills with Antonio Janigro, and in 1997 he won the First Prize at the Rostropovich Cello Competition in Paris.

Edvard Grieg - Violin Sonatas, Opp. 18, 13 & 45 - Daniela Cammarano, Alessandro Deljavan (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/88,2kHz

Сomposer: Edvard Grieg (1843 - 1907)
Artist: Daniela Cammarano, Alessandro Deljavan
Title: Grieg - Violin Sonatas, Opp. 18, 13 & 45
Genre: Classical

Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 88,2kHz/24bit

Duration: 01:16:41
Recorded: 14th X 2014, Kulturni Center Lojze Bratuž, Gorica

The 3 Violin Sonatas by Edvard Grieg are a mixture of German and Austrian traditions with the Nordic folk. The experience at the Leipzig Conservatory, where the strong influence of Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy and Robert Schumann was felt, and the trips to Italy, especially Rome, where Grieg met Franz Liszt, contributed greatly to the formation of the style of the Norwegian composer. Similarly of crucial importance were the years he spent in Copenhagen where he completed his studies under the guidance of the Danish composer Niels W. Gade.
The complete Sonatas for violin and piano are included in this album signed by the well-matched couple Cammarano-Deljavan who has already recorded the works by Johannes Brahms and Anton Rubinstein. The 7-mic recording by Alessandro Simonetto is fully dynamic and realistic.

Ewald Demeyere - 18th-Century Flemish Harpsichord Music (2011) High-Fidelity DSF 5.0 Surround DSD64/2.82MHz

Сomposer: Various Composers
Artist: Ewald Demeyere
Title: Ewald Demeyere - 18th-Century Flemish Harpsichord Music
Genre: Classical, Instrumental
Label: © Challenge Records | Northstar Recordings
Release Date: 21 November 2011
Quality: DSF 5.0 Surround DSD64/2.82MHz
Source: nativeDSDmusic
Duration: 01:14:12
Recorded: March 28-31/2011 at the Vleeshuis Museum Antwerpen, Belgium


Highly regarded harpsichordist Ewald Demeyer performs a selection of rarely heard 18th century Flemish solo pieces by some of the lesser known composers of the period, including Josse Boutmy, Dieudonné Raick, F.I. de Boeck, Ferdinand Staes, Charles-Joseph van Helmont, and Natalis Vander Borcht.
Harpsichordist Ewald Demeyere has for many years been a member of the highly regarded early music groups La Petite Bande and Il Fondamento. He has released many CDs on the Accent label, including discs of the Eight Keyboard Sonatas by Thomas Arne, sonatas and fugues by Wilhelm Friedemann Bach, Pièces de Clavecin by Joseph-Hector Fiocco, and sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti. In 2007 he founded the Baroque orchestra Bach Concentus which has released two titles including a double set of overtures by Johann Bernhard Bach and Georg Philipp Telemann.
Eighteenth-century Flemish harpsichord music today is mostly identified with the Pièces de Clavecin of 1731 by Joseph-Hector Fiocco which undoubtedly form the high point in the genre. However there are several other musical figures from this time and region whose work is well worth investigating, and the repertoire performed on this CD has been put together as a result of an artistic research project carried out by Ewald Demeyere based on the rich collection of music at the Antwerp Conservatory library.

Antonin Dvorak - Piano Trio Op. 65; Trio Op. 90 'Dumky' - Osiris Trio (2008) High-Fidelity DSF 5.0 Surround DSD64/2.82MHz

Сomposer: Antonín Dvořák (1841 - 1904)
Artist: Osiris Trio
Title: Dvořák - Piano Trio Op. 65; Trio Op. 90 'Dumky'
Genre: Classical
Label: © Cobra Records
Release Date: 2008

Recording location: Westvest kerk, Schiedam NL
Recording dates: June 2,3,4 – 2008

Antonin Dvorák is considered to be the most significant Czech composer of the nineteenth century, although he was certainly not the only prominent composer of that period from that area of Europe. Bedrich Smetana and Zdenek Fibich also enjoyed a great reputation. Nonetheless, Dvorák’s fame soon became unparalleled, in the first place probably because his music is such a successful synthesis of Czech - or, more accurately, Bohemian - folk music and Western techniques. And no doubt also because Dvorák was such a ‘natural’ composer: his music sounds so self-evident, so natural, music such as in Western Europe only Schubert was known for. It was precisely this aspect of Dvorák’s art of which Brahms was rightly jealous.

Duration: 131 minutes 5 seconds
Recorded: September 2010, Concert Hall of the Mariinsky Theatre, St Petersburg, Russia

For the label's fifth opera recording, Gergiev conducts Donizetti's masterpiece featuring a magnificent cast led by coloratura soprano Natalie Dessay.
Donizetti's tragic opera in three acts depicts a family feud set in the Lammermuir Hills of Scotland. The opera was premiered on 26th September 1835 at the Teatro di San Carlo, Naples, with the coloratura soprano Fanny Tacchinardi Persiani in the role of Lucia. A revised version in French followed suit in 1839.
Inspired by Sir Walter Scott's novel The Bride of Lammermoor, the central character of Lucia Ashton (Dessay) is in love with Edgardo di Ravenswood, her brother Enrico's sworn enemy. With his fortune waning, Lord Enrico plots to force Lucia to marry Lord Arturo Bucklaw, in order to guarantee his continued power. Torn between her family and true love, Lucia submits to her brother's desires but in turn loses her mind. Lucia's delicate disposition is tested and results in the famous 'mad scene' in which she kills her new bridegroom Arturo.
