They have been compared to the cool but moving expression of Icelanders like Björk and Sigur Rós – a mesmerising and spiritual sonic soundscape. Oddarrang’s debut album won the Finnish equivalent of the Grammies for best Jazz Album of the Year 2007. Oddarrang’s fascinating mix of musical moods, traditions and their unusual instrumentation (trombone, cello, guitar, acoustic bass and drums) are gaining them more fans at every performance. In 2013, they released, In Cinema, their third album, a remarkable album that pushed the band into new worlds. In Sept 2016, they will released Agartha.

Recorded: Domaine Forget, Québec, 11-15. VIII. 2013


Alexandre Tharaud returns with an album of music by Haydn and Mozart composed between 1777 and 1786, including the latter's masterpiece the Piano Concerto No.9 'Jeunehomme' widely regarded as one of his greatest contributions to the genre. The piano works are elegantly woven together: while Tharaud performs Mozart’s cadenzas in the Piano Concerto No.9, the pianist has written his own for the Rondo in A – employing themes from 'Jeunehomme' – as well as for the Haydn concerto in which he uses motifs from Mozart’s famous Rondo 'Alla Turca' to give a truly Eastern European flavour to the work that seizes on the spirit of its final-movement Rondo all'Ungherese. The album sees Tharaud reunite with old friends: the award-winning French-Canadian chamber orchestra Les Violons du Roy under the baton of their music director Bernard Labadie, and the outstanding mezzo-soprano Joyce DiDonato in Mozart’s concert aria 'Ch'io mi scordi di te?'.

Mozart: The five most brilliant concertos for violin, all penned before the age of 19! Mozart was not even 15 years old when he began composing violin concertos that would serve as a backdrop at Salzburg receptions. An insatiable drive for independence would however lead the young Konzertmeister to overtly challenge musical forms, innovate with genres, humor and frivolity, all of which can be heard in this delightful first collaboration between Isabelle Faust and the musicians of Il Giardino Armonico conducted by Giovanni Antonini.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - Requiem - Berliner Philharmoniker, Herbert von Karajan (1975/2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)
Artist: Anna Tomowa-Sintow, Agnes Baltsa, Werner Krenn, Jose van Dam, Wiener Singverein, Berliner Philharmoniker, Herbert von Karajan
Title: Mozart: Requiem In D Minor, K.626
Genre: Classical
Label: © Deutsche Grammophon
Release Date: 1975/2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: e-Onkyo
Duration: 00:53:13
Recorded: at Philharmonie, Berlin in September 1975


Herbert von Karajan’s 1975 Mozart Requiem is of the grand ceremonial type with large choral forces and full orchestra accompaniment–all of which sounds quite massive compared to more recent period-style performances–particularly Bruno Weil’s powerfully lean and incisive version on Sony (see Reviews Archive). The present recording’s spacious reverberation enhances the feeling of bigness, and with it the sense of occasion. Karajan’s tempos are on the slow side, especially by today’s standards, but he generates much anger and sonic power in the Dies Irae. But the tension flags considerably in the second half, where Süssmayr reportedly takes over (this recording uses the standard Süssmayr completion). However, there’s no lack of passion on the part of the singers, especially Jose van Dam, whose golden bass-baritone sounds so soothing in the Tuba Mirum. ~ Victor Carr Jr (classicstoday.com)

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - Piano Concertos, K. 466 & 467 - Rudolf Buchbinder, Staatskapelle Dresden (2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/48kHz

Сomposer: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)
Artist: Rudolf Buchbinder, Staatskapelle Dresden
Title: Mozart - Piano Concertos, K. 466 & 467
Genre: Classical
Label: © Sony Music Entertainment
Release Date: 2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 48kHz/24bit

Duration: 01:10:53
Recorded: Die Gläserne Manufaktur, Dresden, Germany, 2015


Rudolf Buchbinder is firmly established as one of the world's foremost pianists and is frequently invited by major orchestras and festivals around the world. An acclaimed interpreter of music from the classical period, his comprehensive repertoire also encompasses numerous 20th century compositions and has been a recording artist for over four decades now resulting in a vast catalogue of more than 200 releases. Amongst them, Sony's release of the entire 32 piano sonatas by Beethoven, that was awarded the prestigious ECHO Klassik prize.

Buchbinder conducts the Staatskapelle Dresden from the piano for this new album featuring two of Mozart's most famous and loved piano Concertos. During an exceptionally productive period in 1785, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart finished his Piano Concerto No. 20 in D minor, K. 466, his most overtly dark, dramatic concerto, and the joyous Piano Concerto No. 21 in C major, K. 467 within the space of month.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - Piano Concertos Nos. 6, 17 & 21 - Geza Anda, Camerata Academica des Mozarteums Salzburg (1962/2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756 - 1791)
Artist: Géza Anda, Camerata Academica des Mozarteums Salzburg
Title: Piano Concertos Nos. 6, 17 & 21
Genre: Classical
Label: © Deutsche Grammophon
Release Date: 1962/2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 01:18:51
Recorded: Tracks #1-6 - May 1961, #6-9 - April 1962, Grosses Festspielhaus, Salzburg, Austria

Although he played very little Mozart in his early career Géza Anda became the first pianist to record the full cycle of Mozart's piano concerti; he recorded them between 1961 and 1969, conducting himself from the keyboard. His performance of the Andante from Mozart's Piano Concerto No. 21 in C on the soundtrack of the 1967 film Elvira Madigan led to the epithet "Elvira Madigan" often being applied to the concerto. Indeed his performance of this work is generally considered the benchmark recording; he plays artistically, full of emotion and the orchestra supports him wholeheartedly. His performance of the 17th concerto is also superb and the 6th is equally pleasing.

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - Oboe Concerto & Other Works with Oboe - Frank de Bruine, Kenneth Montgomery, Orchestra of the 18th Century (2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)
Artist: Frank de Bruine, Kenneth Montgomery, Orchestra of the 18th Century
Title: Mozart: Oboe Concerto & Other Works with Oboe
Genre: Classical
Label: © Glossa
Item Number: GCD 921123
Release Date: 2016

Duration: 01:09:10
Recorded: in Amsterdam in January and October 2015


Following on after the death of Frans Brüggen in August 2014, the decision was taken by the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century to continue touring the world, and inviting various guest conductors who have known and worked with the ensemble over many years, such as Daniel Reuss, Jonathan Darlington and Andrea Marcon, and indeed Kenneth Montgomery, who directs the orchestral pieces on this brand new recording for Glossa. Additionally, the orchestra often performs without conductor – and most of its members have been involved musically with each other for decades.
The first recorded result of the new post-Brüggen era is this Mozart CD with a programme centred on the oboe, which has been devised by the longstanding orchestra member, Frank de Bruine. Mozart has been central to the Orchestra’s musicmaking and the composer made many friends with wind players – including oboists – and wrote abundantly for them. De Bruine is himself the soloist in the C major Oboe Concerto (the original version of the Flute Concerto, KV 314) and is present in two chamber pieces, the F major Oboe Quartet, KV 370 and the D major Divertimento, KV 251 as well as the concert aria, “Vorrei spiegarvi, oh Dio!”, KV 418 which involves soprano Dutch Lenneke Ruiten.
This new chapter in the recorded history of the Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century is provided with an essay by scholar Clemens Romijn.

It is a shame that the tradition of the open-air performances no longer plays a distinctive role in modern concert life. At least, not in classical music. Whereas pop and rock superstars world-wide fill gigantic sport arenas without any problem, classical open-air events remain the exception. Admittedly, megastars such as Pavarotti, Domingo and Carreras also achieved this almost without effort. Although it is true that the “learned” concert audience rather turned up its nose at the programme they presented; to say nothing of the price it demanded, as all sense of intimacy was somewhat lost, considering the 10,000 spectators and enormous amplifiers. The open-air concerts of the Classical period were certainly not bothered by these problems. Making music in the open air had played an important role since the end of the Middle Ages, especially in the cultural life of southern Germany. These concerts took place mostly during the evening and night. As he did in many musical genres, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart also wrote numerous works which took this “society-associated light music” (Gruber) to undreamt-of heights. Mozart, a composer of light music? Yes. After all, neither the composers, nor the audiences of the 18th century were confronted with the problem of the later division between “light” and “serious” music, which even now is adhered to in German-speaking countries with almost pompous gravity. Quite the opposite, in the Classical period, it was much more a self-evident goal to link popularity to eruditeness in an elegant manner, and to offer a piece of music which would appeal to all levels of the audience. At the same time, serenades had been considered from time immemorial a refined genre of light music, which was certainly always worth acknowledging. The title already indicates the ephemeral function of this music; thus, the word “serenade” can be more or less derived from the Italian “sera” (evening) and “sereno” (clear, cheerful).

Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart - Flute & Harp Concerto - Philippe Bernold, Emmanuel Ceysson, Orchestre de Chambre de Paris (2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart (1756-1791)
Artist: Philippe Bernold, Emmanuel Ceysson, Orchestre de Chambre de Paris
Title: Mozart: Flute & Harp Concerto
Genre: Classical
Label: © Aparté Music
Release Date: 2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit

Duration: 00:55:41
Recorded: Enregistré à Notre-Dame du Liban, Paris du 7 au 10 juillet 2015


The Concerto for Flute and Harp is one of the most popular works of the classical musical repertoire (especially the second movement). Some 250 years after its premiere, Philippe Bernold and fantastic harpist Emmanuel Ceysson, principal harpist at the Metropolitan Opera in New York, give us an unforgettable version recorded by Nicolas Bartholomée for Aparté which may well become a modern benchmark in this repertoire.
Philippe Bernold, also directs from the flute, Concerto K313 and Andante K315 with the Paris Chamber Orchestra with whom he has made three previous recordings. Bernold made some of his earliest recordings as a 'Nouveaux Interprète' on harmonia mundi.
With his powerful, virtuoso playing, Emmanuel Ceysson, the ‘enfant terrible’ of the harp, sweeps away all the clichés associated with his instrument. Formerly principal harp at the Bastille, Ceysson won the audition at the Metropolitan Opera for the seat in 2014. Recordings with Naxos, Naïve, Clavès, MDG, and others include solo, concerto, and chamber repertoire, and have won the enthusiasm of the press.
