    Vivaldi: The Four Seasons

    Tacets tube-only recording technique, renowned for their crystal clarity and spaciousness, score another triumph here. How should Vivaldis Four Seasons be played? How should it be heard? As an onomatopoeic animal show and weather report? As an emotional Baroque violin concerto? Or simply as a musical »contest between harmony and invention« as the composer himself put it? Countless violinists have attempted to answer these questions with countless new versions and different performance styles of this timeless work. And so we stand, quite at a loss, faced with a myriad of recordings, which range from flamboyant, symphonic readings to ethereal chirruping, and even trendy disco versions.


    That the work can be beautifully performed without resorting to venturesome experiments is shown by the PCPO and soloist Daniel Gaede, who focus on authenticity and straightforwardness in their reading, without pledging themselves to a scholastic performance practice as preached by some Baroque gurus. The colourful constant change from good-humoured playing together to 'contesting' with one another is filled with the sheer joy of music-making that is free of mannerisms and whims. These performers demonstrate just how smoothly a four-wheeled Baroque motor can run: it purrs, sings, murmurs, accelerates and slackens without juddering in the least. This recordings forte is found in the light-hearted simplicity and naturalness of the playing and the finely balanced analogue sound recording.

    The Four Seasons (Awaiting Repress)

    The London Philharmonic Orchestra performs Vivaldi's The Four Seasons, Op. 8 led by violinist, conductor Itzhak Perlman.


    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. He has appeared with every major orchestra in the world, showcasing his talent at music festivals, recitals, and concerts around the world.


    Undeniably the reigning virtuoso of the violin, Itzhak Perlman enjoys superstar status rarely afforded a classical musician. Beloved for his charm and humanity as well as his talent, he is treasured by audiences throughout the world who respond not only to his remarkable artistry, but also to the irrepressible joy of making music, which he communicates. In January 2009, Mr. Perlman was honored to take part in the Inauguration of President Barack Obama, premiering a piece written for the occasion by John Williams and performing with clarinetist Anthony McGill, pianist Gabriela Montero, and cellist Yo-Yo Ma. In December 2003 the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts granted Mr. Perlman a Kennedy Center Honor celebrating his distinguished achievements and contributions to the cultural and educational life of our nation. In May 2007, he performed at the State Dinner for Her Majesty The Queen and His Royal Highness The Duke of Edinburgh, hosted by President George W. Bush and Mrs. Bush at the White House.


    In addition to his many orchestral and recital appearances throughout the world, Mr. Perlman performs as conductor with leading orchestras. He was Music Advisor of the St. Louis Symphony from 2002 to 2004, and he was Principal Guest Conductor of the Detroit Symphony from 2001 to 2005. He has performed as conductor with the New York Philharmonic, Chicago Symphony, Philadelphia Orchestra, Boston Symphony, National Symphony, Los Angeles Philharmonic, St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, and the symphony orchestras of San Francisco, Dallas, Houston, Pittsburgh, Seattle, Montreal, Atlanta and Toronto, as well as at the Ravinia and OK Mozart festivals. Internationally, Mr. Perlman has conducted the Berlin Philharmonic, Concertgebouw Orchestra, London Philharmonic, the English Chamber Orchestra, and the Israel Philharmonic.


    He proudly possesses four Emmy Awards and fifteen Grammy awards. He performed at the 2006 Academy Awards and at the Juilliard School Centennial gala, broadcast nationally on Live from Lincoln Center. One of Mr. Perlman's proudest achievements is his collaboration with film score composer John Williams in Steven Spielberg's Academy Award winning film Schindler's List, in which he performed the violin solos.

    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.

    Vivaldi: Four Concerti

    While Vivaldi was imitated and paraphrased for several decades in the 18th century, his style is actually quite inimitable. His admirers could add to but not originate the formula. This is why his singular voice speaks to us now with such genuine directness and individuality.

    Cello Concertos

    The greatest cellist of modern time -- well, who could argue with a statement like that? After all, Mstislav Rostropovich is a supreme virtuoso, a charismatic performer, and a sublime interpreter and virtually every one of his recordings is as good as it gets for the repertoire. The key word, of course, is virtually: while Rostropovich's Dvorák concerto with Karajan, his Beethoven sonatas with Richter, his Brahms sonatas with Serkin, and above all his Shostakovich sonata with Shostakovich are definitive, can one say the same of his Boccherini, Vivaldi, and Tartini concertos with Paul Sacher? Or could one say that Rostropovich does not so much play the music of the great Italian Baroque composers as overwhelm it, that his virtuosity, his charisma, and his interpretations are more than the music can bear and that the listener is left not with fond memories of the music but instead with the overpowering impression of an unstoppable musical personality having his way with the music. The results are initially awe-inspiring but may ultimately prove to some to be empty. Accompanied -- the more appropriate word might be enabled -- by Sacher and the Collegium Musicum ZÜrich, the greatest cellist of modern times came, saw, and conquered the finest cello concertos of Baroque times. Whether that's a good thing or not is up to the listener.

    2Cellos

    Young Croatian cellists Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser, together known as 2CELLOS, have achieved sensational success by taking the cello to a new level. Their playing style has broken down the boundaries between different genres of music, from classical and film music to Pop and Rock. 2CELLOS have no limits when it comes to performing live and are equally as impressive when playing Bach and Vivaldi as they are when rocking out AC/DC. Their debut album is a thrilling collection of chart-topping Rock and Pop songs performed in their signature style.


    2CELLOS rose to fame in 2011 when their version of Michael Jackson's ''Smooth Criminal'' took the world by storm. The YouTube video became a massive viral sensation leading to a record deal with Sony Masterworks and an invitation to join Sir Elton John on his worldwide tour. The song charted at No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100 Digital Songs Chart and landed the 2CELLOS' debut album in the Top 100.


    In addition to many sold out solo tours (US, Japan, Europe) and collaborations with the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Queens of the Stone Age and George Michael, the duo have also appeared on major TV shows such as The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, The Ellen DeGeneres Show, The Bachelor and many others. Together with the Chinese classical superstar pianist Lang Lang, they appeared at the CCTV New Year's Gala for more than 1 billion viewers.

    Vivaldi: The Four Seasons

    Presented With Original Artwork And Pressed On 180-Gram Heavyweight Vinyl At Optimal


    Eschewing its usual heavy orchestral sound in favor of a more stripped-down instrumentation, Dutch violinist Janine Jansen's second album offers a fresh interpretation of one of the most performed classical works, Vivaldi's The Four Seasons. The 2005 follow-up to her Barry Wordsworth-conducted debut, the subtle but passionate renditions of the La Primavera, L'estate, L'autunno, and L'inverno concertos are performed with a sparse, eight-piece ensemble including Lithuanian violinist Julian Rachlin, her cellist brother Maarten, and harpsichordist father Jan.

    Vivaldi Four Seasons

    The Chinese Baroque Players, in a new recording of Vivaldi's ''Four Seasons.'' Performed on traditional Chinese instruments, this audiophile recording is Arranged and Conducted by Choo Boon Chong. Chong and the ensemble allow for Vivaldi's music to speak more delicately compared with traditional instrumentation on this famous piece. The arrangement is for Erhu, Qung Wan, Di, Cello, Pipa, we believe all beautifully done by The Chinese Baroque Players for a marvelous new experience of ''The Four Season's.''


    In the very early stage of preparing for this recording, Producer KK Wong, along with this ensemble took great pains to capture the essence of Vivaldi and his period. The recording was made in a country home in Tai Po, China. The space, with its open windows made for a superior production, one that is up to the standards of the Master's Match Audiophile Series.


    A unique interpretation of Vivaldi's Four Seasons performed on traditional Chinese instruments. ''A rare one-of-a-kind recording of Vivaldi's timeless masterpiece. A magnificent audio treat, both for its brilliant fidelity and the intensity of the performance by the band hailed in China as one of the finest interpretive groups in Baroque music.''


    KK Wong and the Chinese Baroque Players made two artistic decisions which they believed would realistically capture the essence of the Vivaldi piece and period while at the same time be more demanding on the musicians.


    First, ''volta prima'' the band was to be challenged by no second takes, what they ''got'' the first time is what went on the record. No room for error. ''We wanted this recording, despite its differing moods, to share a common feeling of enthusiastic enjoyment, of artists taking delight in their craft and Vivaldi's magical composition'' said KK Wong.


    Second, ''vivus'' (to be alive) the recording was made away from the studio and its modern technical surroundings and being true to this state-of-the-art minimalism only two microphones and one 2-track analog Studer recorder was utilized. KK selected a verdant country setting at a beautiful home in Tai Po which he believes is one of the finest acoustic sites for a small group performance. The group set up in the open space of this magnificent drawing room with open windows and this improvisational element fed the recording with the truth of nature and its seasons. This choice indeed proved to add verve and gusto to the performance and the recording, not to mention the occasional 21st Century interference, (which hopefully the listener will delight in discovering on his or her own).


    The young woman who leads the Chinese Baroque Players is Erhu player Hsin Hsiao-Hung. If you have ever seen a performance on the Erhu you've noticed that it looks like a ladle with a long handle without frets, fitted with two strings and a bow inserted between them. Its range spans about three octaves and has some of the qualities of the violin but with a more nasal tone. Exhibit Records plans to release another album in the future featuring Hsin Hsiao-Hung as a soloist.

    Directly Cut to Vinyl


    Pressed at Record Industry


    Gatefold Jacket


    Vivaldi's best know work, The Four Seasons is given new life in this Audiophile Direct to Disc recording from Chasing the Dragon. In order to make this D2D recording, the Interpreti Veneziani Chamber Orchestra performs each album side live in the studio, recorded via state of the art, all-tube valve microphones, fed to a Neve Desk, and then via a pure analogue path directly to the Neumann VMS80 lathe.


    This Direct to Disc performance is a pure analog delight! The brilliantly captured session was carefully engineered, and mixed live, no overdubs! During the performance, the Neumann VMS 80 Cutting head engages the master lacquer (stamper used for pressing LPs) and is not stopped until the entire side is complete! The results are amazing! A more accurate recording, a greater immediacy and interaction among the players, less background noise through the elimination of master tapes, overdubs, etc. by directly cutting the recording to vinyl. A dynamic album that needs to be heard!

    A truly record-breaking recording: Anne-Sophie Mutter's reading of Vivaldi's Four Seasons, conducted by the man who discovered her, Herbert von Karajan, was the first classical CD to go platinum. And to this day, its legendary status remains untarnished.

    Vivaldi: Four Seasons (Awaiting Repress)

    Audiophile 180 Gram Vinyl Cut at Emil Berliner Studio


    Pressed at Pallas in Germany


    Violinist Viktoria Mullova is joined by the Chamber Orchestra of Europe conducted by Claudio Abbado.


    Viktoria Mullova is one of the most versatile and charismatic violinists to have emerged in the late 20th century, demonstrating a high level of mastery in broad range of repertoires, from Baroque to Romantic and post-Romantic to jazz and crossover. She established her reputation early in the 1980s, winning both the Sibelius and Tchaikovsky competitions and going on to win the Grand Prix du Disc and a Diapason d'Or Award, as well as garnering numerous other honors. Her widely acclaimed 1987 Philips recording of Vivaldi's Four Seasons is ample proof of her sure grasp of the idiosyncrasies of the Italian Baroque, and the freshness and vitality of her playing has made her version a favorite with listeners and critics. Mullova performs with passionate musicality and technical finesse, and Claudio Abbado leads the Chamber Orchestra of Europe in a nuanced, idiomatic accompaniment. - Stephen Eddins, allmusic.com

    The Club Album Live From Yellow Lounge

    In May of 2015, violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter gave a truly unique concert: rather than standing on stage in one of the world's renowned well-tempered grand concert halls, she spent two evenings playing in a tiny graffiti-scrawled nightclub in Berlin. Recorded in front of a standing-room only audience, this new 2-LP release includes popular works by Bach, Copland, Gershwin, Tchaikovsky, Vivaldi and many more. Mutter is joined by Mahan Esfahani, Lambert Orkis and the Mutter Virtuosi

    East Meets East

    Nigel Kennedy joins forces with the gifted Polish band Kroke to explore the musical roots of Eastern Europe while still injecting his own unique visions. The raw energy and haunting melodies of traditional tunes fascinated old masters such as Vivaldi and Bach, and they fascinate Nigel Kennedy. These aren't just a string of tunes to fill up a recording; they are individual excitements felt by Nigel and shared with you. Vibrant dance material driven almost to a frenzy, 'One Voice' is a simple melody played in turn on three instruments by three musicians of three faiths, 'Lost in Time' a haunting solo piece describing winter living conditions in a quarter of Poland. Again, very real, very personal; Nigel has a home in Poland. The spectacular record is a pure musical landscape capturing all the sunlight and shadows of his life.

    Kindly Now (Awaiting Repress)

    Keaton Henson will release his third official studio album, 'Kindly Now', via Play It Again Sam. Having sold out the Roundhouse earlier this year, Keaton has also confirmed plans for his biggest European headline shows to date, including a show at London's Palladium on November 18th.


    'Alright' was written in Los Angeles shortly after the release of Henson's acclaimed second album, 'Birthdays'. Struggling with the apparent trade-off of having to put himself on display in order to make the music he loved, 'Alright' describes a very English way of grinning through pain (and also the sense that despite your world shifting so quickly, maybe you haven't changed very much at all). It's a stunning introduction to 'Kindly Now', a record which simultaneously broadens Keaton's canvas - more electronic in places, more classical in others - yet also reflects a life-long love of Randy Newman. 'Kindly Now' is ultimately Keaton Henson's most emotionally stripped-back album thus far, an unheroic and unsettling examination of past loves, the role of the artist, and owning up to your own destruction.


    'Kindly Now' continues an extraordinary journey for Keaton Henson, who quietly released his limited edition, hand-made debut album 'Dear ' in 2012, before a surprise Zane Lowe play led to a flurry of investigation into Henson's identity and whereabouts. Despite choosing not to perform or promote his record in a conventional manner, his heavier second album 'Birthdays' saw Keaton make an astonishing return to the live arena: from playing one-on-one for fans, to cinemas, museums and churches internationally. Whilst beginning to write songs for 'Kindly Now', Keaton pushed himself in two extreme directions: first, he taught himself the art of orchestration and arrangement, and surprise-released the critically acclaimed collection of bedroom-classical music, 'Romantic Works', on the same day as his immediately-sold-out date at London's Meltdown Festival (at the request of James Lavelle). Then, having completed 'Kindly Now', Henson pushed the more electronic textures of some of his new songs into 'Behaving', his first album of wholly-electronic music (also staging a DIY, immersive production of Vivaldi's Four Seasons for two-sold out nights at Oval Space, in association with The Barbican).


    On top of his work as a worldwide-exhibited visual artist, Keaton has recently released his first poetry collection ('Idiot Verse') and scored the forthcoming Balletboyz' feature-length World-War-One epic 'Young Men' in conjunction with the BBC (originally performed at Sadler's Wells, and resulting in Keaton conducting the BBC Concert Orchestra). This has all - one way or another - fed into 'Kindly Now': an album four years in the making, from an artist of whom all you can expect is the unexpected, but reliably unflinching.

    Three Worlds: Music From Woolf Works

    Following the success of SLEEP, Max Richter reveals his latest recording project - a new album entitled Three Worlds: music from Woolf Works. It's drawn from his music to Wayne McGregor's award-winning Royal Ballet production Woolf Works - inspired by the works of Virginia Woolf - and will be released on Deutsche Grammophon.


    Just like the ballet, Richter's new album has a three-part structure, built around themes from three of Woolf's novels: Mrs. Dalloway, Orlando and The Waves. Fragments from her letters, diaries and other writings are woven into the work, with spoken words from Gillian Anderson, Sarah Sutcliffe and even Virginia Woolf's own voice, reading the essay 'Craftsmanship' from a 1937 BBC recording.


    Max Richter explains: "When we began to discuss making the ballet, I hunted around for material of all kinds, photographs, memoirs, biographies. I never expected to find a recording of Virginia Woolf - this is the only one to survive. It's like a tremendous time machine which allows you to hear her voice and wonderful use of language. I've used spoken-word elements quite often in my work, so to come across Virginia Woolf reading her own words was like a Christmas present. That lit the fuse for the musical language of the ballet's first act, based on Mrs. Dalloway, and the piece grew from there."


    Richter's new album, which stems from his longer score for Woolf Works, features a vast palette of sounds - from solo instrumental and orchestral episodes, to electronic textures and music for wordless soprano. It opens with the chime of Big Ben, whose unmistakeable sound can still be heard above the noise of London traffic from the distance of Gordon Square in Bloomsbury, where Virginia Woolf lived before her marriage to Leonard Woolf.


    Woolf's suicide note, her heart-rending farewell letter to her husband, read by Gillian Anderson, sets the contemplative atmosphere for 'Tuesday', the album's final and longest track. The piece develops from the sound of breaking waves into a plaintive solo melody, constantly repeated yet ever-changing, and grows to become a dream-like meditation on life and death. "My approach goes back to the aesthetic pleasure of simple, well-made things," Richter observes. "I believe 'Tuesday' connects to minimalism in painting and architecture; within the realm of what people call spirituality, it connects to Zen Buddhism. All those things flow together in the striving for the maximum from the minimum."


    Max Richter and Wayne McGregor are frequent collaborators. Richter wrote the scores for McGregor's ballets Infra and The Future Self, while McGregor staged Richter's recomposition of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons and directed his chamber opera, Sum. Woolf Works was met with outstanding critical acclaim on its premiere in 2015, winning the Critics' Circle Award for Best Classical Choreography and the Olivier Award for Best New Dance Production.

    Spheres

    Award-winning violinist Daniel Hope presents an eclectic and accessible mix of neo-Baroque, minimalist and soundtrack favourites, including works and
    arrangements by contemporary masters like Ludovico Einaudi, Arvo PÄrt, Karl Jenkins, Max Richter, Gabriel Prokofiev, Alex Baranowski and many more
    "Spheres" features a curated collection of repertoire celebrating the idea, first brought forward by Pythagoras, that planetary movement creates its own
    kind of music, bringing beauty, harmony and simplicity to our complex solar system. This idea has fascinated philosophers, musicians, and
    mathematicians for centuries.


    An album of broad consumer appeal, featuring a number of world premieres, and destined to drive interest in the digital space.


    Music of reflection, contemplation and relaxation, this album can sell to admirers of Einaudi, Philip Glass, Karl Jenkins and others, as well as the wider,
    "chill-out" market.


    Featured as main soloist on Max Richter's acclaimed "Vivaldi Recomposed", Hope is known for an effortless classical sound and intriguing approach to
    repertoire.
