Zwei italienische Vollblut-Musiker und der bekannte Cellist Erich Oskar Huetter im Tangofieber - bei brennender Sehnsucht des Bandoneons, spannungsgeladener Erwartung der Gitarre und hingebungsvollen Erotik des Cellos bleibt kein Herz auf dem rechten oder unrechten Fleck.
Das Duo Giampaolo Bandini – Cesare Chiacchieretta, Gitarre und Bandoneon, wurde 2002 mit der Absicht gegründet, den Tango durch die Faszination und den Zauber seiner repräsentativsten Instrumente wiederaufzuwerten. Nach kurzer Zeit wurde das Duo ein wichtiger Bezugspunkt im internationalen Konzertleben, spielte in den wichtigsten Sälen der Welt und fand überall außergewöhnlichen Anklang bei Presse und Publikum. 2002 führten sie das Doppelkonzert “Hommage a Liegi” von Astor Piazzolla unter Leo Brouwer in Parma auf. 2004 wurde dem Duo der “Beniamino Joppolo” Preis der Stadt Patti für hohe musikalische Verdienste verliehen. 2005 debütierte das Duo im großen Saal der Philharmonie in St. Petersburg. Tourneen führten sie nach Mexiko, Rumänien, Polen, Österreich, Deutschland, Spanien, in die Schweiz und nach Holland.

Philip Glass - Piano Works - Vikingur Olafsson, Siggi String Quartet (2017) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

This is a tribute to the master of minimal music, legendary Philip Glass, who turns 80 on 31.01.2017. A year ago Philip Glass handpicked some pianists to perform all of his Etudes together at the Barbican in London. Víkingur Ólafsson was one of them and according to the press he was “the highlight of the evening” (Sean and Heard International). The Financial Times claimed: “Best of all was Ólafsson in the supersensitive stillness of Etude 5”. Víkingur Ólafsson is an up-and-coming visionary pianist not only of technical sublimity but also of remarkable entrepreneurial abilities. Besides his growing career as a traditional concert pianist Víkingur Ólafsson has also collaborated with a range of contemporary composers and artists like Olafur Arnalds and Björk.

Allan Pettersson - Symphony No.14 - Norrkoping Symphony Orchestra, Christian Lindberg (2017) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Allan Pettersson (1911–1980)
Artist: Norrköping Symphony Orchestra, Christian Lindberg
Title: Pettersson - Symphony No.14
Genre: Classical
Label: © BIS Records AB
Release Date: 2017
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: eClassical.com
Duration: 52:38
Recorded: January 2016 at the Louis de Geer Concert Hall, Norrköping, Sweden


In their series of Allan Pettersson’s symphonies, Christian Lindberg and the Norrköping Symphony Orchestra have arrived at the Fourteenth Symphony, completed in 1978 and given its first performance in 1981, one year after the death of the composer. As several of its predecessors, No. 14 is in one extended movement and is scored for large forces, including an expanded percussion section. But there are also important traits that set it apart. Pettersson, who had studied twelve-tone composition for
René Leibovitz in the early 1950’s, never adopted the technique fully but in the present work the traces are more evident than in his other symphonies: the opening few bars contain all of the notes of the chromatic scale, and throughout the work Pettersson makes extensive use of compositional techniques associated with twelve-tone music. In several earlier works, Pettersson had alluded to his song cycle ‘Barefoot Songs’, but in the present symphony he quotes himself extensively – the melody of Klokar och knythänder (Wise Men and Clenched Hands) appears no less than five times in its entirety and becomes crucial to the structure of the symphony. The present disc is the sixth instalment in a series that has received distinctions such as Empfehlung (klassik-heute.de), Clef d’or 2011 (ResMusica.com), isco excepcional (Scherzo) and Critics’ Choice (Gramophone). Included with the new recording is a bonus DVD containing a film produced by Swedish Television after the death of the composer. In the course of the film, here provided with English subtitles, we meet the composer himself, members of his family, colleagues from his time as an orchestral player and musicians such as the violinist Ida Haendel.

Paulien Van Schaik & Hein Van de Geyn - In Summer (2003) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: Paulien Van Schaik & Hein Van de Geyn
Title: In Summer
Genre: Jazz, Vocal Jazz, Trumpet Jazz, Swing, Smoot Jazz
Label: © Challenge Records Int.
Release Date: 2003
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 00:52:20
Recorded: August 30-31, 2003 by Chris Weeda at Studio LeRoy, Amsterdam, Holland

Artist: Paulien van Schaik, Hein Van de Geyn, Bert Joris Immediately, as you listen to the first few bars of Gershwin's Embraceable You, you know that this album is very special. A short, unpretentious yet exquisite, intro by the Belgian trumpeter Bert Joris is followed by the sonorous bass sound of Hein Van de Geyn and the clear voice of Paulien van Schaik. The trio is complete.It is the introduction to an album full of jewels. And those jewels are a repertoire of classic standards such as Moonlight in Vermont, The Man I Love, Imagination and many other beautiful songs. Here we hear chamber music of the highest caliber and in a pure jazz idiom.
Did Hein and Paulien touch on "the naked truth" with their first CD "Tenderly", as Hein said himself; with Bert Joris a perfect harmonious unity emerges, enhanced by the beautiful melodic lines that Paulien sings against the trumpet melodies. The great quality of Paulien is her deep respect for the way the melodies have been written by their composers. Lyrics and music as equals, interpreted by three passionate musicians.

Leo Ornstein - Piano Quintet & String Quartet - Marc-Andre Hamelin, Pacifica Quartet (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Leo Ornstein (1893-2002)
Artist: Marc-André Hamelin, Pacifica Quartet
Title: Ornstein - Piano Quintet & String Quartet No 2
Genre: Classical
Label: © Hyperion Records
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: hyperion-records.co.uk
Duration: 72 minutes 47 seconds
Recorded: April 2014, Henry Wood Hall, London, United Kingdom

The young pianist-composer Leo Ornstein went from wowing the ladies with his virtuosity to writing a Violin Sonata in 1915 of such atonal violence that it frightened even him.
By the time of the two works recorded here his style was more rounded. The mix of enfant terrible and Lisztian piano-slayer is now tempered by an intense lyricism, the rhythmic energy balanced by searing poetry.
In the exhilarating hands of Marc-André Hamelin and the Pacifica Quartet these performances fizz with exuberance. A real treat.
