An award-winning ensemble, the Veits Quintet was awarded the first prize at the Braunschweig International Music Competition in 2013, and most recently the second prize at the International Carl Nielsen Chamber Music Competition in Copenhagen. For their first release with Ars Produktion, the group has put together a program which they believe will perfectly display their finest qualities, including works from Ravel, Francaix, Taffanel, and Ibert. Founded in 2012, The Veits Quintet has quickly become one of the most promising woodwind quintets of this generation. The performers are graduates of Universities in Munchen, Trossingen, Berlin, and London, and have individually performed alongside the finest orchestras in the world.

Adelphi | 2007 | EPUB | Pages 116 | ISBN: 884592145X | 1 MB

Elegante ventiquattr'ore su ventiquattro e inaccessibile, laconico e gelidamente cortese, il protagonista di questo romanzo potrebbe sembrare una maschera - o un enigma. Eppure è un personaggio che affascina. Forse per il suo raffinato distacco. Forse per la casa minuscola e complicata in cui vive non lontano da Parigi, affollata com'è di miniature d'ogni sorta, statuette e ninnoli, carillon e giocattoli a molla. O forse perché è Ravel, uno dei musicisti più celebri al mondo. Jean Echenoz ridà vita all'artista in un romanzo partecipe e nonchalant, indiavolato e audace come un brano jazz.

It has become a platitude to claim that Ravel (1875-1937) delighted in paradox and harmless deception. In a sense, therefore, nothing would have pleased him more than to learn that his stupendous reputation as an orchestrator continues to rest on works not expressly written for the medium. One must be careful not to misconstrue this allegation. …

"Le boléro de Ravel", l'une des œuvres les plus jouées du répertoire symphonique, est interprétée par l'Orchestre philharmonique de Radio-France. Le boléro est une danse espagnole que Maurice Ravel, compositeur français du début du XXe siècle, a adaptée en soulignant le côté répétitif, monotone donc obsédant. Son œuvre comporte deux phrases qui alternent et se répètent sans le moindre changement de rythme. Le crescendo perpétuel produit l'effet irrésistible de ce morceau envoûtant.

The Capuçons, violinist Renaud and cellist Gautier, joined by pianist Frank Braley, enter into the gauzily shimmering, atmospheric world of Ravel’s Piano Trio in a sensitive performance that’s suggestively haunting in the first movement, effervescently bubbling in the second, profoundly reflective in the third, and imposingly declamatory in the fourth. The clean but somewhat low-level recorded sound underscores the spirit of the collaboration, never assigning undue prominence to any of the instruments. The ensemble may sound a bit distant, and perhaps for that reason a bit detached in the first three movements (as, for example, the Beaux Arts Trio, always vibrant, never did); but that sense of space hardly prevents their ferocious intensity from emerging temerariously in the finale.

Explore the life and music of Maurice Ravel (1875 - 1937). The DVD documentary introduces us to the world of French composer Maurice Ravel through one of his most lovely works, String Quartet in F major, performed on screen by the Canadian ensemble Quatuor Arthur Leblanc. The film presents a series of four dance segments interspersed with documentary vignettes. The choreographies correspond to the four movements comprising the work and recreate key elements of the French composer’s life. Drawing on archival documents, the vignettes offer a brief biography of Ravel.

Monteverdi was a pioneer of the musical style we now call Baroque, but the Mass on this record is in classic Renaissance style and the music might have been written in the 1500s rather than the 1600s.

Hearing or performing music comes closest in the range of human activity to a visceral connection to the past. As long as we have notation and knowledge of how to interpret it, we can effectively experience something like our ancestors did when they sang the same music. Of course, our 20th-century sensibilities and knowledge–or lack thereof–prevent us from sharing identical responses, but as with the music on this disc, when we hear it we are in some way transported to another place. We know a completely different sound world from our own; we know that the accepted order of certain things was different. And we also know that in many ways people haven't changed. Machaut's music conveys a spirituality–both joyful and contemplative–that's as true in its impact as it must have been 600 years ago, a point made ever so clearly by these especially vibrant and vital performances.
