Ragna Schirmer: Madame Schumann - Works for Solo Piano & Chamber Ensemble
Ragna Schirmer: Madame Schumann - Works for Solo
One of the most exceptional female artists of the 19th century celebrates her 200th birthday in 2019. The acknowledged Clara Schumann expert Ragna Schirmer has devoted a special act of homage to her artistic predecessor, taking two original concert programmes selected from Clara's decades of concert performance and recording them to provide insight into the life and work of this very special woman. In 1847, Clara and her husband Robert Schumann gave a matinee concert in the Berlin salon of Fanny Hensel. The programme featured two songs and the premiere performances of the piano quartet by Robert and the piano trio by Clara Schumann. 25 years later, on a tour of England, she played a solo piano recital (an unusual practice at that time) featuring all the works that meant most to her: her husband's ''Scenes from Childhood'' and works by Beethoven, Scarlatti, Chopin, Brahms and Mendelssohn, a programme that delighted her audience. She was announced as ''Madame Schumann''. From over 1300 printed programmes, collected and preserved by the celebrated pianist over the course of her performing career, Ragna Schirmer opted for just these two. ''The number of great works she studied and performed in the course of her life is quite amazing,'' says Ragna Schirmer. ''Another thing that fascin...

Annees De Pelerinage
Franz Liszt s years of pilgrimage are more than a journey through Switzerland and Italy they are also a musical journey through timeand, ultimately, through the composer s own self. Outstanding German pianist Ragna Schirmer pays respectful visits to these individualplaces with profound affinity for the complicated spiritual world of the Abbé Liszt. Links to the Renaissance are underscored by themadrigals of Gesualdo and Marenzio, sung by the Amarcord Ensemble.

Arvo Part - Live
Arvo Part -
Arvo Pärt, who was born in Estonia in 1935, has succeeded in bringing sacred music back to a broader audience, and away from the confines of the church service, more than almost any other contemporary composer. The meditative character of his works, and his return to the simplest and most basic musical forms, convey moments of intense spirituality. Even before his emigration from the Soviet Union to Austria and then to Germany, Pärt had already invented what he termed the tintinnabuli style of composition. He produced an early and important example of this style in 1977 with the ''Cantus in Memory of Benjamin Britten'', scored for string orchestra and bell, and it is also a key feature of the three great choral works that form the greater part of this new release, ''Arvo Pärt: Live'', namely the ''Seven Magnificat Antiphons'' for mixed choir a capella, the large-scale oratorio ''Cecilia, vergine romana'' for mixed choir and orchestra, and the vocal work Litany Prayers of St John Chrysostom for Each Hour of the Day and Night for soloists, mixed choir and orchestra. Also included on this album is the ''Collage on B-A-C-H'' for strings, oboe, harpsichord and piano. Composed in 1964, before Pärt's aesthetic reorientation, it is one of his most famous works. Despite its radical re...

Carl Czerny: String Quarlets - Sheridan Ensemble
Carl Czerny: String Quarlets - Sheridan
Known as a piano teacher, with whose works almost every piano pupil should be familiar and possibly also as a pupil of Beethoven, Carl Czerny enjoys practically no fame as a composer today. The composing maniac (round about 800 published works) acquired a great reputation (and wealth) from piano teaching and writing educational works for the piano and compositions the market expected from him and from which he earned a lot of money. At the moment, seven quartets are recorded, four of which were probably intended for publication. Czerny composed in the tradition of Haydn and Beethoven. Echoes of Mendelssohn can be discerned as well as a romantic style full of drama and profundity of expression. The quartets have only been passed down as manuscripts from Czernys estate, which can be found in the archives of the Society of Friends of Music in Vienna.
