Ludwig van Beethoven - Piano Trios - Seraphim Trio (2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/48kHz

Сomposer: Ludwig van Beethoven (1770–1827)
Artist: Seraphim Trio

Duration: 01:20:15
Recorded by Virginia Read in Eugene Goossens Hall, ABC Ultimo, May 2015

Beethoven’s trios are amongst the finest works in the chamber canon, taking the form spawned by Mozart and Haydn and developing it into a musical genre which reached symphonic proportions in its musical language and virtuosity.
The album combines two early trios with the later ‘Ghost’, showcasing the radical development of Beethoven’s style. The opening trio, Op.1 No.2, was written in 1795, when Beethoven was just 23 years old, and shows the influence of both Haydn (in its wit and surprise) and Mozart (in its lyricism – particularly evident in the sublime slow movement).Written just two years later, the Op.11 trio earns its nickname ‘Gassenhauer’, or ‘street hit’, on account of its final movement, a delightful set of variations on Joseph Weigl’s song Pria ch’io l’impegno: ‘Before I go to work I must have something to eat.’

Ludwig van Beethoven - Complete Violin Sonatas - Daishin Kashimoto, Konstantin Lifschitz (2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Ludwig van Beethoven (1770-1827)
Artist: Daishin Kashimoto, Konstantin Lifschitz
Title: Beethoven - Complete Violin Sonatas
Genre: Classical
Label: © Warner Classics
Release Date: 2014
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit (#34-36 - 44,1kHz/24bit)
Source: Qobuz
Duration: 04:30:32
Recorded: 14/17 July 2012 (Op. 12/1, Op. 30/1-3), Gabriel Recording Studio, Stalden, Switzerland; 27/31 December 2012 (Op. 12/2, Op. 23, Op. 47, Op. 96), 13/15 May 2013 (Op. 12/3, Op. 24), Teldex Studio, Berlin, Germany

Violinist Daishin Kashimoto and pianist Konstantin Lifschitz make their debut together on Warner with Ludwig van Beethoven's complete violin sonatas, decidedly an ambitious undertaking. Neither artist has an extensive discography, and this is their first release as a duo, so one can imagine that the pressure of recording these sonatas in the studio must have been considerable, despite their prior experiences of playing them in recital several times. There is no question that Kashimoto has a strong affinity for Beethoven that is apparent in his nuanced phrasing and passionate playing, and that Lifschitz is with him every step of the way as an alert accompanist. Both appear to have agreed to play the notes before them, without recourse to historical styles or trends, so the interpretations are mainstream and unsurprisingly direct. Yet there is a spontaneity in the playing that suggests the sonatas haven't been over-rehearsed or over-thought, and that both musicians are still seeking new ideas and expressions in each performance. The trimline box set contains four CDs in cardboard sleeves, and the sonatas appear in numerical order. Despite being recorded in two separate studios, in Stalden, Switzerland (sonatas 1, 6, 7, and 8) and Berlin, Germany (sonatas 2, 3, 4, 5, 9, and 10), the sound is fairly consistent throughout, with only slight variances of presence and volume levels. --AllMusic Review by Blair Sanderson

Important classical magazines like Gramophone are enthusiastic about the series: "These are strong, thrustful performances which make sense in terms of the music in hand and the orchestra;s own character and competence.
Jan Willem de Vriend has an intense passion for music. He will never stop investigating. Curiosity and eagerness are simply part of him and the way he works. And this means that, in his hands, music from the past comes to life, time and time again. (from the linernotes of Valentine Laout)

Bela Bartok - 44 Duos - Sarah & Deborah Nemtanu (2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Béla Bartók (1881-1945)
Artist: Sarah & Déborah Nemtanu
Title: Bartók - 44 Duos
Genre: Classical
Label: © Decca is a Universal Music Company
Release Date: 2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 00:48:11
Recorded: June 2015, Babel Studios, Paris, France

Romanian-born sisters Sarah and Deborah Nemtanu form a violin-playing dynasty: Sarah has been leader of the Orchestre National de France since 2001 and Deborah leads the Orchestre de Chambre de Paris. Both began violin studies with their father Vladimir who led the Orchestre National Bordeaux Aquitaine.
The Nemtanu Sisters’ Romanian blood makes them the perfect, idiomatic interpreters of Bartok’s 44 Duos: all the songs and dances are based on folk music from many Eastern Europe countries. The harmonic and rhythmic freedom demanded by the music is second nature to them, as demonstrated in the notable track: [38] Forgatós: ‘Romanian Whirling Song’.
No strangers to the recording studio, the sisters have previously recorded the Bach Double Concerto to critical acclaim. Norman Lebrecht chose it as a Disc of the week on Sinfini Music: “Their musical dialogue is full of fascination, alternately confrontational and playful, challenging and interactive.”

Becca Stevens Band - Perfect Animal (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: Becca Stevens Band
Title: Perfect Animal
Genre: Pop Rock, Jazz Folk, Modern Creative, Singer/Songwriter
Label: © UMG Recordings
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 48:50

"I wanted to use the word ‘animal’ in the album title, because writing and recording this set of songs was like taming something that had a life of its own," Becca Stevens says of her revelatory new album Perfect Animal (April 2015). ”The title came from the track ‘Imperfect Animals’ which I wrote about the instinct to strive for perfection pulling against the understanding that such a condition is not humanly possible. That’s a big theme for me, and it’s something that I go through in my daily life, in my relationships, and every time I write a song.”
Perfect Animal marks a quantum musical leap for the North Carolina-bred, New York-based artist. It boasts her most personally-charged songwriting and her most urgent, impassioned singing to date, along with vivid, adventurous arrangements that show off her fiercely expressive guitar work as well as the talents of her longstanding band: keyboardist/accordionist Liam Robinson and bassist Chris Tordini, both of whom Stevens has worked with since 2005, and drummer/percussionist Jordan Perlson, who joined three years later.
