Ludwig van Beethoven

Symphony No. 2 D major op. 36
Overtures

Beethovenorchester Bonn
Stefan Blunier


MDG 937 1977-6

Info

Beethoven's Second Symphony is not exactly one of the symphonic repertoire's greatest hits. However, as the latest release from the compositional Titan's hometown demonstrates, it certainly has the stuff of greatness. It was here that Beethoven first prescribed a "Scherzo" in the movement slot traditionally occupied by the minuet, which automatically lends this work historical significance. The orchestra's principal conductor Stefan Blunier inserts the symphony in a new context formed by carefully selected orchestral overtures in a program holding in store many a musical surprise.

Emotions

César Franck & Maurice Ravel

Kirill Troussov, violin
Alexandra Troussova, piano

MDG 903 1984-6

Info

The brother and sister Kirill Troussov and Alexandra Troussova have performed music together ever since their childhood days - the best preparation for César Franck's magnificent Violin Sonata, the focal work on their new Emotions album. Their close cooperation allows them agogic freedoms adding an absolutely new dimension to this masterpiece of romantic chamber music. They form a dream team, and so do their instruments: the famous "Brodsky" Stradivarius on which Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto was premiered and the legendary Steinway "Manfred Bürki" concert grand piano from 1901.

L'inverno degli flauti

Bach, Saint-Saens, Corelli, Ljadow, Eilenberg, Martin, Vivaldi, Debussy, Humperdinck, Odermatt

Die 14 Berliner Flötisten

MDG 308 1932-2

Info

Festive holiday fun with the 14 Berliner Flötisten (14 Berlin Flutists)! Just in time for the Christmas season these classy cosmopolitan wind instrumentalists are releasing a brand-new CD - dazzlingly polished and nobly presented for all-around listening pleasure on long winter evenings. The repertoire lovingly chosen from the treasure trove of three hundred years of music history is just as broad as the fascinating spectrum covered by the instruments of the flute family. Ranging from the tiny-tot piccolino to the hooks and crooks of the mighty subcontrabass flute, its members offer a steady stream of tonal surprises.

Frédéric Chopin
Preludes op. 28, Sonata No.3 op. 58

Ping Gao
Night Alley

Yubo, Zhou, piano

MDG 904 1936-6

Info

On this challenging debut disc the young Chinese pianist Yubo Zhou introduces herself to the listening public with Frédéric Chopin's twenty-four Préludes. It goes without saying that this prizewinner at many international competitions has the technical mastery required to perform these extremely difficult miniatures. But there is more: her fine feel for romantic poetry and the often intimate charm of these mostly very short works will make even experienced Chopin enthusiasts sit up and take special notice. Chopin's third piano sonata - and - honoring her native China - "Night Alley" by Ping Gao perfectly round off this uncommonly attractive programme.

Rügheimer Jagdmusik

Detmolder Hornisten
Michael Höltzel

MDG 324 0143-2

Info

MDG congratulates Michael Höltzel on his 80th anniversary with a carefully redesigned release of his Music for the Rügheim Hunt which he composed for his ensemble of the Detmold Hornists.
