Following a previous recording devoted to Mozart, François Chaplin has chosen Brahms’ latest opus for solo piano: Rhapsodies Op. 79 and the intermezzi from Klavierstücke Op. 117 and Op. 118. The Rhapsodies, moving and powerful scores, express Brahms’ sober melancholy. Far from his symphonic works, the interludes of Opus 117 and Opus 118, true miniatures, reveal the inner imagination of the composer. Brahms talks directly to the heart of the listener with his mature and sober poetry. Within these Klavierstücke, the interlude is a humble but generous genre where the musician gathers freely the fruits of his most intimate inspiration. These « lullabies of pain », as he called them, are composed during summer in the Austrian countryside, dear to this sturdy northern German. The emotion that emerges from it is all the more intense as it measures his artistic evolution. On this journey, François Chaplin brings out a soft poetry from a contained lyricism.

Kapustin uses jazz as his musical language and then composes quasi-improvisations that sound as though they stemmed right from Oscar Peterson’s or Erroll Garner’s fingers. He is one of the few who were able to have the structures of composition and liberty of improvisation come together to such an organic whole.’ After his first successful release with the piano- and double concerto of Russian composer Nikolai Kapustin (Capriccio C5437), Frank Dupree presents the original jazzy solo piano pieces of the still unknown master, enlarged with additional bass and drums. The genres of Jazz and classical music finally melt in a fascinating pure Jazz-Trio formation.

Very popular during Chopin’s lifetime, the Waltzes have long been a favourite with professionals and amateurs alike. Highly virtuosic – most of them were clearly not intended to be danced – and sometimes melancholy, they nevertheless retain the distinctive lightness and grace that we associate with the genre.

In her recording for PASSACAILLE, the Italian harpsichordist and organist Federica Bianchi deals with the development of music for keyboard instruments from the beginning of the 15th century to the beginning of the Baroque period. The earliest works come from the famous Codex Faenza (ca. 1400-1420). Bianchi plays this repertoire on three instruments that were built based on historical models: a clavicymbalum based on a design from the first half of the 15th century and two harpsichords based on Italian models from the 16th and 17th centuries.

Two experienced chamber musicians, who have already worked as soloists with the Deutsches Sinfonie-Orchester, present a duo album on GENUIN of works ranging from the late Romantic period to the 21st century. A recording that crosses all boundaries, Eva-Christina Schönweiß (violin) and Kirsten Ecke (harp) have put together an exciting program featuring music of people in transit and in search of a home. In doing so, they wander through a wide variety of cultures, performing duos by the great masters of classical modernism such as Maurice Ravel and Astor Piazzolla, as well as contemporary music by Roman Ryterband, Thomas Rajna, Hooshyar Khayam and Jean Michel Damase. The two instruments complement each other perfectly; the floating sounds of the harp and the sonorous warmth of the violin make for distinctive and exciting tonal blends.
