 Ensemble Gilles Binchois Dominique Vellard Since 1979, Dominique Vellard has inspired and guided the destiny of the Ensemble Gilles Binchois. These 35 years of research and concerts have resulted in some of the essential recordings in the field of music from the mediaeval and Renaissance periods. This new recording provides the occasion for discovering brilliant compositions by the composer Heinrich Isaac (c.1450-1517), generous, captivating works.

Hakim plays Hakim Vol. 2 The Schuke Organ of The Palacio Euskalduna of Bilbao, Vol. 2

Naji Hakim Naji Hakim returns to disc on Signum with a second volume of evocative organ works performed on the Schuke Organ of the Palacio Euskalduna. This volume features works inspired by different locations around the world, including his 'Suite Norvpgienne', 'Esquisses Persanes' and 'Suite Franoaise'. Completed in 2000, the organ is housed in a magnificent concert hall of wood and steel - itself inspired by the Euskulduna shipyards that once occupied the area.

MOZART: Requiem Netherlands Chamber Choir Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century Frans Brüggen Glossa reinstates to the catalogue a recording which typifies the label’s endeavours as well as being a memorable reflection of the artistry of the Orchestra of the 18th Century and of its conductor Frans Brüggen. An extended and beautiful introduction to the principal work is created by performances of the 'Maurerische Trauermusik' and the 'Adagio for two clarinets and three basset horns', before Brüggen directs a startling and impressive reading of the 'Requiem' which includes the Introit, Tract and the Offertory sung in plainchant - which has become one of the reference versions of this work. The Metropolitan Space of Tokyo surely experienced an occasion of true magic back in March 1998 which was perfectly captured by the NHK Television microphones and which now can be enjoyed once more.

Alessandro ROLLA: Duets for violin & viola Isabelle Faust Thomas Riebl With this 2002 recording originally issued on the Swiss Pan Classics label, violinist Isabelle Faust and violist Thomas Riebl acquaint us with a composer of great distinction, Alessandro Rolla, who would have been otherwise completely forgotten if for some time he hadn’t been regarded (incorrectly as it turns out) as the teacher of Nicolò Paganini. The confusion which ensued is enabling us now to encounter some excellent pieces of chamber music by a composer who was the music director at La Scala during the first three decades of the 19th century.

FORQUERAY: Pièces de viole avec la basse continuë Paolo Pandolfo, Guido Balestracci, Rolf Lislevand Eduardo Egüez, Guido Morini Marin Marais and Antoine Forqueray represent the two leading figures from the world of the French viola da gamba with – in the opinion of a contemporary in Hubert Le Blanc – the former playing like an angel and the latter like a devil. Fiendishly difficult to play, of course, are many of the pieces brought together in the volume prepared by Jean-Baptiste Forqueray (“le fils”) in 1747, two years after the death of his father, and drawn from sketches and memories. Glossa is now bringing back into circulation – in a newly-prepared edition – the recording which introduced Paolo Pandolfo to the label, where he was joined by a starry group of fellow performers in Guido Balestracci, Rolf Lislevand, Eduardo Egüez and Guido Morini. A legendary album, one which confirmed Pandolfo, now some 20 years ago, as one of the greatest viola da gambists of our own present times.

As well as being one of the key members of the Orchestra of the 18th Century practically from its outset, clarinettist Erich Hoeprich became one of the first artists to join the Glossa label in the 1990s; with his ensembles Nachtmusique and the Stadler Trio he has provided a handful of valuable recordings predominantly concentrating on music from the Classical era. One of these discs, now being reissued, sees Hoeprich and his Catalonian colleagues from the Stadler Trio (Albert Gumí and the sadly departed Carles Riera) perform a selection of pieces by Mozart and other composers from the time, such as Salieri and Martín y Soler, playing on original instruments by the legendary woodwind maker Theodor Lotz.


TELEMANN: Chamber music with flute Wilbert Hazelzet, Jaap ter Linden Konrad Junghänel, Jacques Ogg The frequently undervalued Georg Philip Telemann - a prolific composer who has still not been completely forgiven for having been in his lifetime more famous than Johann Sebastian Bach - is nonetheless the composer of works of great beauty, rich in musical value. Capable, as few others were, of depicting the aesthetic ideal of the time - Les goûts réunis with elements of the Italian, French, English and even Polish styles, he also positioned the recorder in its rightful place; this provides the starting point for this recording the eminent Wilbert Hazelzet made in December 1997 alongside his old friends and colleagues: cellist Jaap ter Linden, harpsichordist Jacques Ogg and lutenist Konrad Junghänel.

G A BRESCIANELLO: Concerti, Sinfonie,Ouverture La Cetra Barockorchester Basel Václav Luks This recording, drawn from the series made in conjunction with the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis and released first on harmonia mundi (2002) and then on Glossa (2011), places the spotlight on another unfairly neglected figure from the late Baroque, Giuseppe Antonio Brescianello, an Italian who worked extensively in the German courts. The concertos and sinfonias (and one chacona) included here reflect the composer’s mastery of music from his own country (echoes of Vivaldi can be heard) and of the French orchestral language as practised by the German composers at this time. David Plantier and Václav Luks lead the La Cetra orchestra from Basle in a recording full of vitality.
