W. A. Mozart (1756-1791)

Divertimenti KV 439b
(arr. Ulf-Guido Schäfer)

Trio Roseau
Rachel Frost, oboe
Ulf-Guido Schäfer, clarinet
Malte Refardt, bassoon

MDG 903 2095-6 (SACD)

Info

Too bad it's only been around for a hundred years! This is what the Trio Roseau thought about its ensemble form, the "trio d'anches" featuring the oboe, clarinet, and bassoon and first established in the 1920s. But what to do when the ensemble's own members include a recognized top arranger in the person of Ulf-Guido Schäfer? This versatile clarinetist did his seeking in the music of the immortal Mozart, and what he found there and arranged for his trio has now been recorded on the big sound of this Super Audio CD - a revelation for specialists in the field of wind chamber music - and not only for them!

 

Clara Schumann (1819-1896)

Sämtliche Lieder
in the original key

Miriam Alexandra, soprano
Peter Gijsbertsen, tenor
Jozef De Beenhouwer, piano

MDG 903 2114-6 (SACD)

Info

This brand new Super Audio CD now for the very first time brings together the complete songs of Clara Schumann in the original key - a long-overdue present for the two hundredth anniversary of her birth! Why is this collection so compelling and vibrant? Because all the songs are heard in the original keys and in each case fittingly performed by a female or male voice. Miriam Alexandra and Peter Gijsbertsen of course contribute their share here, while Jozef De Beenhouwer's experienced and sovereign piano accompaniment shows them in the very best light.

Bernhard Molique (1802-1869)

Piano Trios

Trio Parnassus
Julia Galic, violin
Michael Groß, violoncello
Johann Blanchard, piano

MDG 303 2116-2

Info

 

Hans von Bülow ranked it above the works of Schubert and Schumann, and even the critics in England were unanimous: Bernhard Molique's music absolutely must be heard more often! Answering this call, the Trio Parnassus begins with a presentation of the two piano trios of a musician whose great compositional artistry makes us wonder how he ever could have been completely forgotten.

George Onslow (1784-1853)

Chamber Music

Quintets and Piano Sextet

Gianluca Luisi, piano
Ensemble Concertant Frankfurt

MDG 603 2117-2 (2 CDs)

Info

The Ensemble Concertant regularly celebrates great successes with its extraordinary instrumental forces. Since George Onslow alone dedicated dozens of works to the string quartet plus double bass, the ensemble has espoused the music of this Anglo-French composer with special interest. MDG is now presenting a special edition of two long sold-out CDs at an attractive price with works including the Piano Sextet, a concerto en miniature that took the Parisian salons by storm.

Arp Schnitger
and the Hamburg Organ Tradition

Buxtehude, Praetorius, Decker, Weckmann, Scheidemann

Harald Vogel, organ

MDG 914 2125-6 (SACD)

Info

 

The grand Arp Schnitger organ in St. Jacobi (Church of St. James) in Hamburg is remarkable in several respects. This instrument with four manuals boasts of the largest extant inventory of original pipes from the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, and the Trompete 16' in the great organ is the very oldest of its kind. Harald Vogel, the Nestor of the Northern German organ tradition and the recent recipient of the Buxtehude Prize of the Hansa City of Lübeck, presents this magnificently restored organ in conjunction with an unusual Hamburg "family reunion."
