The compositions on this CD encompass an entire century; all of them are French. Of course, they do not represent the entire range of a century of French cello music, but on the other hand they are all completely un-German! I thought that it would be a good idea to offer the listener of the late 1990s a sort of double upbeat for the masterly Chopin Sonata, in this way arriving at the 1840s by means of two successive steps. The Poulenc Sonata, although dating from 1948, is more a reflection of the Paris of the 1920s anti-aesthetic decadence and coolly presented cabaret-style sentiment. The work is remarkable for its refined surrealism, tinged with an intriguing hint of Catholic irony and seduction in the slow movement, and the moments in the last movement where the energy, for the first time, acquires a sarcastic tint, succeeded by an even more macabre quality which evokes Prokofiev…..

This recording brings together for the first time some of Portugal's leading composers in a unique programme dedicated to their works for cello and orchestra. The impressionistic and luxuriant harmonies of Luiz Costa's Poema contrast with Fernando Lopes-Graça's sombre and austere Concerto da Camera, a commission from Mstislav Rostropovich. Luís de Freitas Branco's Cena Lírica is an early, romantically expressive piece, while the Concerto by his eminent pupil Joly Braga Santos is a hauntingly poetic symphonic masterpiece.

Vivaldi’s Opus 14 Sonatas are part of the cello’s ‘great repertoire and also some of the works from the last years of the ‘Red Priest’. Quite simply – and regardless of Igor Stravinsky’s curiously rash judgement regarding Vivaldi’s work –, these sonatas are splendid, making this instrument sound as only a composer who is an experienced virtuoso instrumentalist himself – in this case, a violinist – can do.

Pieter-Jan Belder has made over 100 recordings, including the complete Telemann Tafelmusik for Brilliant Classics, and this set is part of his project to record all of Rameau’s keyboard music. On this 3CD set are Rameau’s great sets of pieces for keyboard – Pièces de Clavecin en Concerts of 1741, the Pièces de Clavecin of 1705 and 1724, and the Nouvelle Suites de Pièces de Clavecin of 1726. In the centuries that have passed since his death in 1764, he has been consistently praised by composers such as Debussy (‘A composer I cannot recommend strongly enough is Rameau’ he wrote in 1903), Hindemith, Tartini, D’Indy, and Gluck – what a variety! All wrote of their indebtedness to him, and acknowledged his influence.

Classical | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 1.38 GB | Covers 5.31 Mb
Label: Brilliant Classics | Release Year: 2004

Tremendous new recordings of Baroque master Corelli's complete works, performed on period instruments. Corelli was a peer of and huge influence on Vivaldi, as well as the founder of modern violin technique; his work consists of six opus numbers comprising 72 works altogether. They are all written for string instruments only, mainly sonatas for orchestra or, in the case of Opus 6 , 12 concerti grossi that played a major role in establishing the form. Performed here by the Musica Amphion under the direction of harpsichordist/organist Pieter-Jan Belder.
