Rudens Turku Festival Ensemble

MDG 903 2169-6


While he was still a student, Rudens Turku established the Starnberg Music Days. Over the past twenty years this renowned festival south of Munich featuring an attractive combination of master classes and top-quality concerts has become a highlight of the musical spring season. To celebrate its twentieth anniversary, Turku has brought together an illustrious company of teachers and soloists for an ambitious project: chamber music on the large scale and with musicians numbering among the best in their fields.

Christian Heinrich Rinck

Chamber Music Vol. 1

Trio Parnassus

MDG 903 2171-6


Beethoven is not the only one this year. Johann Christian Heinrich Rinck is also celebrating the 250th anniversary of his birth in 2020. During his lifetime Rinck was highly esteemed and showered with honors, but today his music has been almost completely forgotten. The Trio Parnassus has explored Rinck's choice oeuvre for chamber music and discovered a composer who combines Rococo elegance with Romantic ideas in a most highly individual manner.

Gabriel Fauré

Complete Piano Quartets

Mozart Piano Quartet

MDG 943 2162-6 (SACD)


Emotion and elegance could hardly form a more perfect union than they do in Gabriel Fauré's piano quintets. The Mozart Piano Quartet, here too not short on strongly expressive playing, brings in reinforcements for this new recording. For these two rarely heard quintets, the four musicians receive support from the violin legend Régis Pasquier and his student Sachiko Segawa, thereby adding a touch of special authenticity to this highly welcome production.

Hélène Grimaud

Early Recordings Vol. 1

Schumann - Brahms

MDG 650 2163-2


Now this is a small sensation: MDG is presenting Hélène Grimaud's early recordings for the DENON label from 1985 to 1992 in a double album including great romantic repertoire by Brahms and Schumann. These recordings now once again available after many years, reveal an artistic personality who achieved perfection at an early age and for whom the label "child prodigy" very evidently would be an understatement.

Friedrich Kiel (1821-1885)

Complete Works for Cello and Piano

Hans Zentgraf, cello
Christoph Ulrich, piano

MDG 612 2175-2 (2 CDs)


"My, this is attractive stuff!" This is what the American Record Guide wrote about the world premiere recording of Friedrich Kiel's complete works for violoncello. These interpretations by Hans Zentgraf and Christoph Ullrich disappeared from the catalogue long ago, but both CDs are now once again available, like a package with a pretty ribbon. The richly varied pieces by this Brahms contemporary, whom the Berliner Nationalzeitung numbered among the best of his times, sound as fresh as they did on the very first day.
