“It cannot be easy to write for solo piano: so many magnificent sounds of the 18th and 19th centuries abide in the ears of today’s pianists and concertgoers. By including some of his favorite Chopin miniatures alongside three major piano pieces from the 1990’s, Thomas Sauer could well stand accused of an all-too-common reluctance to break from the past. He prefers to treat with this vexed situation pragmatically, acknowledging the reality that most of his listeners will perceive the new refracted through the lens of the old, and that some will simply be more inclined to keep listening when given a dose of the familiar together with the strange. All three recent works recorded here bear some imprint of the pianistic past - each in a different way - and yet all three successfully outrun it.

Armand-Louis Couperin was a notable French composer, organist, and harpsichordist of the late Baroque and early Classical period. He was a member of the Couperin family of musicians, of which the most famous were his great uncle Louis and his cousin François. He was born in Paris and was raised by his father, Nicolas, also a composer and the successor to François "Le Grand" as organist at Saint-Gervais-Saint-Protais Church in 1748, a post Armand-Louis inherited after his father’s death. Subsequent posts included the Notre Dame (from 1755), the Sainte Chapelle (from 1760), L’église Sainte-Marguerite, and the royal chapel (from 1770).

Where next after Mozart’s Clarinet Quintet? Try these duos and trios by Georg Friedrich Fuchs (1752-1821) in newly recorded period-instrument performances. Born in the German city of Mainz in 1752, Fuchs was a pupil of Haydn’s before becoming a wind-band leader and composer. Aged 32, however, he moved to Paris, and established his name there, teaching at the conservatoire and composing for many French publishers with an eye to the fast-developing market for attractive music for winds, especially the clarinet, accessible to amateurs.

In the Art of the Fugue, his last great work, Bach brings to bear all conceivable contrapuntal artistry and inventiveness, and sets the result in a planned architectural layout.This new recording was made by Samuel Kummer on the magnificent Baroque organ of the Wenzelskirche in Naumburg, built in 1746 by Zacharias Hildebrandt, at whose acceptance Bach had been present as an expert.Never before has this instrument been captured so convincingly in terms of sound, and for the first time the sound of the organ can now be enjoyed in a multi-channel surround recording.

Our Leo Fall cycle continues with Die Rose von Stambul. This operetta in three acts offers music that is full of feeling. This highly emotional work celebrated its premiere with great success at the Theater an der Wien in 1916. Die Rose von Stambul’s 422 straight performances made it the most successful operetta in the history of the Theater an der Wien, next to Franz Lehár’s The Merry Widow. Within the shortest time performances followed throughout Central Europe. However, like Emmerich Kálmán’s The Csárdás Princess, it did not become an international success – primarily because of World War I, since the theaters of the Allied countries had stopped staging German-language works.Achmed Bey, the son of a Turkish minister, is married to Kondja, “The Rose of Stamboul”. However, she has exchanged letters with a passionate novelist and fallen in love with him. What she does not suspect: none other than her husband is behind this pseudonym – which provides plenty of opportunities for the expression of emotions – rendered in the Viennese waltz mode (“Ein Walzer muss es sein”) or tunes of Oriental flair.

Albert Ketèlbey reached such a pinnacle of eminence and popularity that in 1929 he was named as Britain’s greatest living composer, based on the number of performances of his works. His original pieces for solo piano range from serious concert works to salon charmers, always characterised by strong melodies, distinctive rhythms, and unexpected phrases, as can be heard on this album. One of his most well-known pieces, In a Monastery Garden, is featured in its original version for solo piano.

Genre: Classical / Label: WM Italy

Nell'opera PAGLIACCI di Ruggero Leoncavallo finzione e realtà, vita e teatro, amore e morte si intrecciano alla musica per mettere in scena un dramma ispirato a un fatto di cronaca nera, un femminicidio (tema purtroppo di grande attualità) accaduto a Montalto Uffugo durante l'infanzia del compositore e del quale si era occupato il padre, nel corso del suo mandato come magistrato nella piccola cittadina calabrese. Quest'opera in un solo atto è caratterizzata da una continuità musicale e drammatica che pone un'ardua sfida al direttore, affinché Pagliacci non si riduca a una collana di brani celebri [come Recitar! Vesti la giubba n.d.r.] per voci esuberanti, ma trovi nei pezzi più noti, altrettanti tocchi fondamentali nel disegno delle passioni (dalle note del booklet). Una sfida raccolta dal direttore d'orchestra Filippo Arlia che, registrando questo nuovo progetto discografico al teatro Politeama di Catanzaro con la sua Orchestra Filarmonica del

As the Royal Academy of Music approaches its Bicentenary in 2022, Linn’s Bicentenary Series continues with four new debut albums from the exceptional recipients of the Academy’s 2019/20 Bicentenary Scholarships scheme: Roberts Balanas, Margarita Balanas, Ariel Lanyi and James Orford. In his particularly notable recording, organist James continues the series of transcriptions of Vivaldi’s L’estro armonico which was left incomplete by its previous author, none other than Johann Sebastian Bach. James says: ‘I had developed a love and admiration for L’estro armonico, and I wanted to be able to play them myself! Not only that, but as Bach demonstrated better than anyone, the Italian concerto form transfers itself very well onto the organ … All these things combined to convince me that I should transcribe all ten concertos, which when added to Bach’s two concertos, would complete L’estro armonico for organ. I hope that by doing this, more people might hear the music of Vivaldi and be moved by its exuberance, energy and beauty.’

As the Sixties mutated into the Seventies, a group of people who would go on to become a group of people who would go on to become The Residents began making their first recordings. Using a two-track machine, this gaggle of crazy kids, and The Residents, produced two experimental tapes, 'Ballad Of Stuffed Trigger' and 'Rusty Coathangers For The Doctor'. Crude and throwaway, this material was never intended to be heard by anybody outside of the group.
