Schubert’s “Winterreise” is one of the most famous song cycles that exist in classical music and musicians take it up again and again because of its beauty, sorrow and depth. It is about life itself and which performer does not want to give his or her opinion on life? Both tenor Christoph Prégardien and pianist Michael Gees have their own vision on the cycle. Playing together, a third view develops, combining their two visions into an exciting interpretation of Winterreise.
In this production the music lover has more ways than one to enjoy this Lieder cycle to the fullest. This luxurious Hybrid Super Audio edition (book SACD) contains song texts with English translations.

This album is a unique collaboration between Eric Vloeimans and a full scale classical orchestra. Together with the orchestra and conductor Jurjen Hempel, Vloeimans strikes a bridge between many different styles, from classical to jazz, from western to eastern.
The principle work on this album is in fact Vloeimans’ very own trumpet concerto, Evensong in four movements which he wrote in collaboration with composer and arranger Martin Fondse. The piece Lex was written as the film score to the film Auditie/Audition (2011) an animation film about Lex van Weeren (1920-1996), a Jewish trumpet player and orchestra conductor who survived Auschwitz because he became the camp orchestra conductor and trumpet player in the camp orchestra. Waterfront was written for an open air concert at the Kralingse Plas lake and was in fact inspired by the music Leonard Bernstein wrote for the Oscar award winning film On the Waterfront. It has all the elements we expect from a film score: a long opening shot, introduction of the main character, suspense and high-energy action scene, to wind up with the finale: the title song. About the piece Requiem, Vloeimans states: I had no firm plans to write a classical requiem. Nothing serious had happened in my life that would call for an elegy. But magic went its own way, and things happened as they did: the composition ultimately wrote itself and became this Requiem. Your Majesty is a piece originally written for the film Majesteit, a film about the Dutch queen Beatrix, that wound up not being used in the film. I later recorded this piece in a rock version with Kytecrash and played it with the band of the Dutch Royal Marines in the Concertgebouw in Amsterdam.

Over the past few years, Jan Willem de Vriend and The Netherlands Symphony Orchestra have made CD recordings of all the symphonies of Ludwig van Beethoven. This box contains them all.
At an international level, Jan Willem de Vriend is more and more regarded as an outstanding conductor with a new, fresh point of view. As is his vision of Beethoven. 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)

Catherine Lara - Nil (1975/2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: Catherine Lara
Title: Nil
Genre: Pop, Chanson française
Label: © CBS/Sony Music Entertainment
Release Date: 1975/2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 00:39:19
Recorded: Nova Sound Studios, London

Si sa carrière se poursuit, le succès de Catherine Lara reste relatif après les quelques cinquante mille exemplaires vendus du premier album, les suivants plafonnent à vingt ou trente mille. Ce n’est pas « NIL » - le premier à porter un titre– qui risque d’inverser la tendance, même si « Les lions vont boire quelque part » obtient un certain écho. Disque concept exotico-ésotérique, dû pour l’essentiel à l’auteur-chanteur Alain Lacaux (tragiquement disparu depuis), il s’ouvre et se termine sur un instrumental . Enregistré à Londres, arrangé par Del Newman (qui écrivait alors pour Elton John), son impact musical reste essentiel pour Catherine : « Là, je commence à amener rythmique et feeling. La motion de groove. Ca m’est venu grâce à un musicien fabuleux, le bassiste de Magma : Francis Moze. Il m’a donné cet amour du rythme et de ce qui se passe entre les temps… C’est vraiment quelqu’un qui m’a appris beaucoup de choses. J’adore les musiciens. J’ai toujours eu de la chance d’être accompagnée par des pointures ». Catherine Lara --Daniel Pantchenko CHORUS 1996

Dario Castello - Sonate Concertate In Stil Moderno, Libro Primo - Academy of Ancient Music, Richard Egarr (2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Dario Castello (c.1590–c.1658)
Artist: Academy of Ancient Music, Richard Egarr
Title: Castello - Sonate Concertate In Stil Moderno, Libro Primo
Genre: Classical
Label: © AAM Records (Academy of Ancient Music)
Release Date: 2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 01:44:36
Recorded: St George’s Church, Cambridge on 25-28 January 2016

The Academy of Ancient Music explores a revolutionary period of Italian music through the work of Venetian man of mystery Dario Castello.
Working at the same time as Claudio Monteverdi, Dario Castello wrote innovative and ground-breaking sonatas that had a profound effect on generations of Italian composers. Very little is known about him today, but in the 17th century he was actually more widely published than Shakespeare.
AAM Music Director Richard Egarr is a lifelong advocate of Castello, and on this recording directs the composer’s first book of sonatas from the harpsichord and organ.Taking the form of a small chamber group, the AAM finds itself at its most adventurous and expressive, performing twelve fiercely virtuosic sonatas for violin, cornetto and dulcian that are full of imagination and colour.
This release – the fifth on AAM Records – follows the AAM’s critically-acclaimed series of JS Bach recordings. Their 2015 release of JS Bach’s St Matthew Passion (AAM004) was praised by BBC Music Magazine for Richard Egarr’s “compellingly original vision”, and was awarded BBC Radio 3’s Disc of the Week. JS Bach’s Orchestral Suites (AAM003) was awarded five stars by Fine Music Magazine and was described as “a feast of meaningfully understated musicianship” in an Editor’s Choice review in Gramophone magazine.
