Anton Bruckner (1824-1896)

Symphony No. 3 (Version 1877)

Musikkollegium Winterthur
Thomas Zehetmair

MDG 901 2090-6

Info

Thomas Zehetmaier gets off to a fantastic start with Anton Bruckner's Symphony No. 3, the work marking his discographic debut as the principal conductor of the Musikkollegium Winterthur. This prizewinning, richly traditional Swiss orchestra once again offers a compelling performance enhanced by agile flexibility of chamber character. The overwhelming acoustics of the Winterthur Town Church contribute their share to the magnificent Bruckner sound, which here has been perfectly captured in three-dimensional 2+2+2 recording technology and released on a high-resolution Super Audio CD.

Mozart, Symphony KV 201
Schubert, Symphony Nr. 5

dogma chamber orchestra

MDG 912 2108-6

Info

Mozart's Symphony in A major K. 201 and Schubert's Symphony in B flat major D. 485, two works by consummate young masters, in a gripping live performance by the Dogma Chamber Orchestra from Dortmund's Konzerthaus - could the music enthusiast possibly ask for anything finer? Perhaps that this exhilarating feast of tonal artistry be made available in the best possible sound quality? Well, this Super Audio CD brings you an original 2+2+2 recording in 3-D sound, high resolution, and sensitive tonal balance - nobody could ask for more!

Joseph Haydn (1732-1809)

String Quartets Vol. 10

op. 64 1, 2, 6

Leipziger Streichquartett

MDG 307 2093-2

Info

 

Haydn, the glorious inventor of the string quartet, took the genre to new heights in his op. 64. Perfectly balanced in form and harmony, the pieces comprising this number are directly interrelated. And this was precisely what the impresario Peter Salomon was looking for when he hired the sought-after retiree on the spot for his London concert series.
The Leipzig String Quartet is back! After a compulsory break of two years the top ensemble from Saxony now continues its Haydn edition. Nos. 1, 2, and 6 round off Haydn's op. 64 - a marvelous combination of emotional dedication and consummate classicism displaying a historical backdrop and refreshing virtuosity!

Dutch Cello Sonatas Vol. 8

Georg Hendrik Witte
Wouter Hutschenruyter

Doris Hochscheid, violoncello
Frans van Ruth, piano

Audiomax 903 2094-6

Info

An astonishing success story goes into its second overtime on Vol. 8 of our Dutch Cello Sonata series. This time this release is really supposed to mark the conclusion, and for this occasion Doris Hochscheid and Frans van Ruth have selected sonatas by Georg Hendrik Witte and Wouter Hutschenruyter made to order for a crowning culmination. Utrecht was the hometown of both composers, but their paths also crossed in other places.

Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy (1809-1847)

Orgelwerke

Christoph Schoener
Orgeln in St. Michaelis Hamburg

MDG 949 2096-6

Info

 

A total of four organs group themselves around the listener in three dimensions in St. Michael's Church in Hamburg, and all four instruments are spectacularly employed on this Super Audio CD. Church music director Christoph Schoener has designed a very special program for the organs in his workplace: music by Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy that has never been heard before in just this way. Schoener pulls all the stops on the central console and covers a spectrum ranging from the complete late-romantic forces of the entire organ system to the filigree murmuring of individual tone colors. A special treat: a solo for the echo organ installed high above in the ceiling sphere!
