Ingolf Turban And His Students – Henri Marteau Vol. 5 – 24 Capricen, Op. 25 for Violin and piano (2021) [Official Digital Download 24bit/48kHz]

If a composer writes 24 caprices for the violin, and if he himself is also a uniquely virtuoso violinist, then a comparison with the 24 caprices by Paganini is inevitable: Henri Marteau was not only appreciated and revered as one of the greatest violinists of his time, but his compositional work was lost in the background. He shared this fate with Niccolò Paganini, who was also experienced during his lifetime more as a “”warlock”” of the violin than as a serious composer and musician. So, if this comparison is almost inevitable, it must be mentioned that Paganini himself, with his main work published in 1820, also took up the example of other composers, such as the Etudes and Caprices of Rodolphe Kreutzer. The subtitle of Henri Marteau’s Caprices: “”d’exécution transcendante”” is also very revealing. Moreover, Marteau has his miniatures accompanied throughout by the piano, unlike Paganini, who uses the violin alone. The violin virtuoso Ingolf Turban considered his own violin class at the Hochschule München predestined for this first recording of all 24 of Marteau’s caprices. So together they dared to do the almost unbelievable: all twelve students in his class were involved in this mammoth task, the absolute peak of which, of course, lies in the very elaborate piano accompaniment. Here he engaged the pianist Tomoko Nishikawa, who confidently took on this mammoth task!

“The Colourful Telemann” presents works from different periods of Georg Philipp Telemann’s life, reflecting his lively personality and exploring his seemingly unlimited invention over a wide variety of styles and genres. A contemporary of Bach and Handel, Telemann wrote music that stands out for its delightful and remarkably generous character, each piece like a leisurely walk with a good friend. From the German and French influences of the earlier Sonata to the dignified Sinfonia Melodica, possibly composed in the year of his death, this is Telemann at his best.

Each day we are born again: We breathe in, we lean towards and take a step. We may tumble and fall, but then we rise up in one way or another, and take a new breath.

The Day I Was Born – the debut album of Iiris Tarnanen is inspired by the journey of life. Tarnanen’s compositions draw on themes from self-empathy to inner devils and new beginnings. Touching stories, shameless attitude and strong emotions are all communicated through the music, brought to life on this versatile album.
