    Vivaldi: Concertos

    In the 18th century, long before any quota agreement or gender studies had taken place, a major part of Venice's musical life lay in the hands of four local orphanages for girls. In 1703, Vivaldi took on the position as conductor, violinist and composer at one of these homes, the Ospedale della Pietà. There he wrote works that are among the very best in music literature due to their inventiveness and artistic demands upon the musicians. As such, one can well imagine just how extraordinarily talented the young girls were. A notion of the fine compositions that floated through the city of canals 300 years ago is given by the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra in a selection taken from a collection of 12 violin concertos known as L'estro armonico, op. 3. The animated dialogue among the strings takes place on several levels: for example, the leading parts not only concertise with and against one another but also after one another, so that the characteristic art of performance of each individual soloist is clearly to be discerned.


    And because no one knows how Vivaldi's girl orchestra would have sounded, anyone listening to this recording can let his imagination run riot as to how it could have been. It goes without saying that the Tacet team have pulled out all the stops with regard to technical matters in order to achieve the best possible analogue sound.

    The Perlman Sound

    No one could deny that Itzhak Perlman holds a special place in the world of music - and no one could define it more eloquently than his old friend and colleague, the pianist and conductor Daniel Barenboim: It is quite impossible to imagine today's violin heritage without the absolute musical genius of Perlman. The most obvious manifestation of that genius is the famous Perlman Sound - lustrous, warm and generous, its impact compounded by often astounding virtuosity; and yet Perlman makes it all look so easy. In fact, he communicates a positive joy in his playing.


    Perlman Sound is released as a primer for the deluxe 59-album boxed set Itzhak Perlman: the Complete Warner Recordings, and may be a good option for fans who don't have enough shelf space for this expansive edition. This collection explores his artistry from the finest concerto highlights (Mendelssohn, Brahms, Beethoven, Tchaikovsky, Korngold, Sibelius, The Four Seasons), to virtuoso solo and chamber repertoire (Paganini Caprice No.24, Bach Partita No.3, the MÉditation from Thaïs, Flight of the Bumblebee, Zapateado) and klezmer and jazz selections. The duo partners and conductors are some of the 20th century's biggest classical stars, many of whom count among Perlman's dearest friends and collaborators.

    Beethoven: Triple Concerto (Speakers Corner)

    Why does the piano part seem comparatively simple in contrast to the violin and cello parts, which make the highest demands on the instrumentalists? And why on earth do three musicians play in concert with an orchestra? As interesting as these questions are with regard to Beethoven's cryptic Triple Concerto, there is a multitude of ways to approach this exceptional work by the great symphonist. In the gallantry of the expression, and keeping in mind the demand for playable parts for his invited circle of musical connoisseurs, Beethoven developed his very own concertante tonal language. This language is brought to life by Rudolf Serkin (piano), Jaime Laredo (violin) and Leslie Parnas (cello) in that they enter continually newly arranged dialogues and thereby offer the listener a warm palette of colours and melodies.



    The orchestral antagonists - the Marlboro Festival Orchestra - weaves a chamber music-like, delicate and wonderfully transparent carpet of sound, upon which Beethoven's characteristic woodwind instruments are bedded like roses. Thanks to these attributes, this recording appears to take place in the luminous glow of a private house and thus conveys a charming yet stimulating atmosphere.



    Musicians:



    • Rudolf Serkin (piano)

    • Jaime Laredo (vocals)

    • Leslie Parnas (cello)

    Beethoven: Violin Concerto In D, Op. 61/ Kogan


    Full Analog Mono Production


    Recorded June 29 and 30, 1957, originally by EMI Music France. Leonid Borisovich Kogan was born on Nov. 14, 1924, in the Ukraine. His father played the violin as an amateur and the sound so fascinated the boy that by age 3 he would not go to sleep unless he had the fiddle beside him. After age 5 he began taking lessons on the instrument. He made his first public appearance playing, at age 10. His official concert debut came playing the Brahams Concerto with the Moscow Philharmonic in 1941. For the celebrated violinist, his interpretation of the Beethoven Concerto was one of the glories of his era; none of his contemporaries played it with such consistent stylistic command or such intellectual and spiritual penetration.

    Bruch - Scottish Fantasy / Hindemith - Violin Concerto (Speakers Corner)

    Max Bruch's Scottish Fantasia is a late-Romantic work which is seldom found on concert hall programmes today. One realises after listening to the piece for the first time that the composition proves to be at least as solid and artistic as all the other works of the composer.



    The London Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Jascha Horenstein gives a sonorous interpretation of the melancholic which, according to Bruch, depicted an aged minstrel who, while gazing upon the ruins of an ancient keep, ponders over the splendid days gone by. The well-known slender but warm timbre of David Oistrakh's violin is well suited to this music which was inspired by Scotland.
    David Oistrakh demonstrates his versatility in this performance of Hindemith's Violin Concerto, written in 1939, where he effortlessly mesmerises the audience with breakneck cascades of scales. With many years of experience in the performance of modern music, the London Symphony Orchestra, led by the composer himself, prove that they are a match for this work.



    This DECCA recording offers first class interpretations of two great masterpieces from differing eras that have been acclaimed widely and have reached far beyond the circle of Oistrakh fans.



    Musicians:



    • David Oistrakh (violin(/li>
    • London Symphony Orchestra

    Dvorak: Violin Concerto

    In a stunning recording career of over 35 years, Anne-Sophie Mutter has sold upwards of 10 million total albums.


    Renowned for her technical facility and limitless range of expressive colours, Mutter is the undisputed "Queen of the Violin" (Times of London) - a musical
    legend of our time.


    It is no exaggeration to call this recording an historic venture: in June, Mutter and the Berliner Philharmoniker, whose deep and lasting artistic relationship
    was forged in the 1970s, came together at the Berlin Philharmonie, to make their first studio album in almost 30 years.


    Here, she records Dvorák's Violin Concerto - the last of the great Romantic violin concertos not yet in her discography.


    Anne-Sophie Mutter has chosen to pair Dvorák's Violin Concerto with his fiery Mazurek Op. 49, and the Romance in F minor for violin and orchestra Op.
    11. The album also includes Dvorák's irresistible Humoresque, presented in its popular arrangement for violin and piano by Fritz Kreisler.


    All works on this recording exemplify the vivid colour, touching melancholy and folkloric tunefulness that are trademarks of Dvorák's style.

    1. Allegro ma non troppo - Quasi moderato
    2. Adagio, ma non troppo
    3. Finale (Allegro giocoso, ma non troppo)

    Brahms: Violin Concerto (Pre-Order)

    Warner Classics continue releasing iconic recordings of the core catalogue in their original cover artwork on LP to benefit from the booming vinyl market. Heroic, dramatic, reflective and joyous, Brahms's Violin Concerto, written for the great Joseph Joachim, a close friend of the composer, is one of the monuments of the Romantic repertoire.


    In a performance of epic sweep, Itzhak Perlman and Carlo Maria Giulini do full justice to its ambitions. This record has been regarded at the time it was released as "one of the greatest Brahms recordings of all time" (Guide Diapason). 40 years after its original release, it remains an absolute must-have, and a reference recording of the Brahms Concerto. It also benefits from the 24-BIT/96kHz remastering done at Abbey Road in 2015.

    Brahms Violin Concerto

    180 Gram Audiophile Vinyl Cut from the Original Analogue EMI Master Tapes at Abbey Road Studios


    1979 Grammy Award for Best Engineered Classical Album!


    Itzhak Perlman (born August 31, 1945) is an Israeli-born violinist, conductor, and is regarded as one of the pre-eminent violinists of the 20th and early-21st centuries, renowned for his brilliant technique, direct interpretation and precision. This recording of the Brahms is considered one of his finest.


    Carlo Maria Giulini (1914-2005) was an Italian conductor acclaimed for the incandescent spirituality and electrifying dynamism of his music-making, and for the remarkable level of ensemble perfection and balance. In 1955 he had made his American debut with the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, leading to a 23-year association with the orchestra; he was its Principal Guest Conductor from 1969 to 1972, although he continued to appear with them regularly until March 18, 1978.


    Cut at Abbey Road Studios from the original stereo analogue master tapes with the Neumann VMS82 lathe fed an analogue pre-cut signal from a specially adapted Studer A80 tape deck with additional 'advance' playback head, making the cut a totally analogue process. Pressed on 180g vinyl to audiophile standards using the original EMI presses by The Vinyl Factory in Hayes, England. This pressing features the original album artwork.


    In the original November 1977 review in the GRAMOPHONE Richard Osborne remarked: This strikes me as being an exceptionally fine performance, drawing one deeper into the music at each new hearing... Giulini and Perlman clearly know what they are about. More than ever before I am aware of the extent and reach of Brahms's writing for the solo violin, of the grave, persistent line of the music... Perlman and Giulini have given us an account of the Concerto which will, I am sure, gratify and move many Brahmsians, and more especially those who see the music of this great composer cast in a grave, heroic mould.


    Recorded on 30 November and 1 December 1976 at the Medinah Temple, Chicago, by the legendary team of producer Christopher Bishop and engineer Christopher Parker.

    Stravinsky: Violin Concerto (Speakers Corner)

    For many years Stravinsky was reluctant to write a concerto for the violin. He felt he was too unfamiliar with the instrument and its particular properties, and it would be too problematic and too much of a challenge to create a large work for the violin. That he finally acquiesced is due in part to persuasion from Paul Hindemith and support from the violinist Samuel Dushkin, who gave him valuable advice during its development.
    With its four-movement form and the descriptive titles of the movements -Toccata, Aria and Capriccio - the Violin Concerto in D testifies to Stravinsky's intensive preoccupation with Baroque forms, which he employs with rhythmic and metric imagination and irony. Stravinsky himself said that the work stinked of violin, but the orchestra is also very present so that one is reminded of a concerto grosso. The author Ernst MÜller (Analogue Audio Association Bulletin) praised the work euphorically, especially for its revelatory character and the tremendous dynamics of this Columbia recording. You can hear all the details, the winds are precise, and the orchestral accompaniment is simply grandiose

It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Sibelius: Violin Concerto (Speakers Corner)

    Not always do composers of instrumental works take the playability of their ideas into consideration. Jean Sibelius - himself an excellent violinist - must have been aware of the enormous challenges to the soloist, but he did not, however, envisage that the première of his violin concerto would be badly received due to the inadequacy of the violinist. That his op. 47 would become a showpiece of romantic violin repertoire is certainly not only due to the first-class soloists of our time, but also thanks to the work's broad and expressive melodies. In the short introduction of the second movement, the leaping intervals of the violin - as though from nowhere - develop into a broad symphonic dialogue with a late-romantic inflection, which is unleashed to create an emotional climax in the 20-bar main theme of the second movement. Seemingly purposely written for the nimble fingers of the world-class violinist, David Oistrakh and the evenly matched Philadelphia Orchestra present a superbly virtuosic and powerful rendering right up to the rousing finale. As an encore we hear The Swan Of Tuonela sing its tender, sublime song in a substantial solo on the cor anglais.

    Musicians:



    • David Oistrakh (violin)
    • Philiadelphia Orchestra conducted by Eugene Ormandy



    Recording: December 1959 and January 1960 at Broadwood Hotel, Philadelphia (PA)

    Production: Howard Scott



    About Speakers Corner



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasize that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.

    Mendelssohn & Bruch Violin Concertos

    Karajan took the young Anne-Sophie Mutter under his wing in the early 1980s and together they produced the of
    Mendelssohn's and Bruch's famous violin concertos. Mutter said: "Karajan taught me to find the common thread
    that runs through a score, to think the music through to its logical conclusion not simply to juxtapose notes in long
    overarching paragraphs but to place them in the service of the musical idea. This is something that has lodged in
    my memory with particular force.

    Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto In D Major

    The Tchaikovsky Violin Concerto, like the Beethoven and Brahms companion concertos, requires a true virtuoso to reveal it in its proper light. Fortunately, such a virtuoso was Tossi Spivikovsky, who accompanies Walter Goehr conducting the London Symphony Orchestra to a rousing performance. The LP, as are all reissues from this series, was cut directly from the 35mm magnetic film using a vintage Westrex 1551 tape machine, with specially built playback electronics that are vastly superior to any others used on these machines to playback the original 35mm tapes. The Len Horowitz / History of Recorded Sound specially modified 1551, fitted with brand new playback heads matched to the revolutionary playback electronics was stationed at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Hollywood. With Len Horowitz running the playback machine and Bernie Grundman mastering from the three track 35mm tapes, Classic Records has been able to cut the legendary sound and performances through Classic's ALL TUBE tape playback system and cutting system at Bernie Grundman Mastering in Hollywood.


    The LP's are pressed on Classic's 200g Super Vinyl Profile making it possible to get every nuance out of the non-distorted grooves that make SVP sound superior to all other records on the market today. Authentic tip on construction jackets with all original artwork and labels add to this must have deluxe LP edition as part of the Classic Everest 35MM LP Series.

    Sibelius - Violin Concerto (Speakers Corner)

    The violin had got me completely under its spell; for ten years it was my greatest wish to become a great violin virtuoso , confessed Finland's national composer Jean Sibelius in later years. Although he began a career as a violin virtuoso too late, as a composer he profited enormously from his intimate knowledge of the instrument and the possibilities it offered. This is particularly apparent in his Violin Concerto with its wonderful synthesis of virtuosic expression and technical bravura, its classical symphonic form, its outward effects and inner substance. This late-Romantic, brilliantly coloured work is certainly one of the most rewarding for every soloist. A specialist in the field of 19th-century bravura pieces and master of an effortless technique and suppleness, the great American violinist Ruggiero Ricci certainly possessed all the requirements for a brilliant performance of this concerto. And Øivin Fjeldstad is the perfect partner for Ricci in more ways than one in this wonderfully lively recording: thanks to his training as both a conductor and a violinist, he ensures a perfect balance between soloist and orchestra; and as a Norwegian he is, of course, completely au fait with Scandinavian repertoire, and guarantees - both here and in other recordings with the London Symphony Orchestra - a truly nordic touch.





    Musicians:



    • Ruggiero Ricci (violin)

    • London Symphony Orchestra

    • Øivin Fjeldstad (conductor)

    Violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter is here at her commanding, warm-toned best!

Mutter and Deutsche Grammophon's commitment to new repertoire is in itself cause for celebration. Mutter performs with conductor James Levine and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.
