Yes, there was another Cleopatra! She was married to Tigranes the Great, King of Armenia, and together they created an Armenia that reached from the Caspian Sea to the Mediterranean. The resplendent and regal voice of soprano Isabel Bayrakdarian is perfectly suited to the role of Cleopatra. Bayrakdarian shines in arias from three rarely heard operas about King Tigranes and his queen.

Melodious and charming, The Cunning Little Vixen is a work rooted in Czech history and folk music; a sentimental journey through the cycles of life. For Sir Simon Rattle, it's a deeply personal and emotional work. "It's the piece that made me want to become an opera conductor… and still one of the pieces that reduces me to tears more easily than any other," says the LSO's Music Director.

Paavo Järvi, Principal Conductor and Music Director of the Tonhalle-Orchester Zürich since October 2019, here launches a complete recording of Tchaikovsky’s symphonies, the first in both his rich discography and that of the Swiss orchestra: ‘When I think of the Fifth Symphony, I think of vulnerability and hope. It looks directly into our soul. It is perhaps the finest of his symphonies. The famous horn solo moves me and enriches me every time I hear it… Unlike the Sixth, the Fifth still holds out hope for life.’ The symphonic poem Francesca da Rimini op.32 completes this programme. This dark and violent ‘symphonic fantasy after Dante’, a drama of jealousy, was premiered in 1877, at the same time as Swan Lake.

Executive Producer Russell Ward writes of this new release: This album explores the relationship between acoustically produced music created by human beings and CERN LHC atomic decay files from the European Organization for Nuclear Research in Switzerland. The CERN tracks function here as intermezzi. For each of these intermezzi I have converted the most basic sonified files in the CERN Sounds Library to midi piano and violin tracks using the native instruments in Apples LogicProX.

Christian-Pierre La Marca here presents baroque pieces (for viola da gamba) as well as modern and futuristic music in a highly personal, patterned reflection that is radically innovatory for the instrument and its repertoire, stimulating for the performer and fascinating for the listener. In this cleverly devised sequence, pieces by Marais, Purcell, Telemann, Sainte-Colombe, Dowland and Rameau interact with Grieg, Chaplin, Dutilleux, Escaich, Ligeti, Casals, the Beatles and Sollima, interwoven with electronic music realized by electro-creatives Rayann and M.A.S. during the March 2020 lockdown. As la Marca confides: "I really like the cross-cultural, multi-genre aspect of this album: I love going from one musical style to another, creating links that did not previously exist, so as to reveal the infinite possibilities of the instrument".
