Polyphony, Stephen Layton
Stephen Layton and Polyphony have a long and fruitful relationship with the music of Arvo Pärt. Their recording of Triodion and other choral
works (CDA67375) won a Gramophone Award and became a cult classic. The extraordinary purity of Polyphony’s singing is the perfect vehicle
for music of such clean, elemental simplicity.

George Frideric HANDEL
20 Sonatas, Op. 1
Rachel Beckett, Lisa Beznosiuk, Paul Goodwin, Elizabeth Wallfisch, Richard Tunnicliffe, Paul Nicholson
The twenty sonatas on this recording show Handel writing for the professional musicians of his London opera
orchestra. Prominent bass parts give the sonatas a contrapuntal strength and vitality, and Handel keeps the
elements of antiphony in admirable balance in these works. For this reason, they are among the most attractive
Baroque solo sonatas and deserve their lasting popularity.

Kurt ATTERBERG; Ture RANGSTRÖM
String Quartets
Stenhammar Quartet
Whilst Atterberg’s first quartet is regarded as a personal, refined work, his second quartet 'originated
from a peculiar impulse to play a prank'. Ture Rangström’s inspiration for the string quartet came from
friend and mentor Carl Nielsen, who commented: 'the vibrancy and temperament with which your work is
imbued are genuinely delightful'. The result is a truly inspired, resolute work from Rangström’s youth.

£5.55
Following a rapid rise to stardom Chet Baker, in 1954, was voted best trumpeter by readers of the leading US jazz magazines – ahead of Dizzy
Gillespie and Miles Davis. The gentle poet of the trumpet – that was his image. He was a trumpeter with a decisive attacca style and lively
boppy lines.
Tony Scott
Tony Scott, Horst Jankowski, Peter Witte, Hermann Mutschler, Conny Jackel, Gerald Weinkopf, Helmut Brandt,
Werner Baumgart, Mario Costalonga, Colin Stuart, Frankie Van Seca, Giancarlo Barigozzi
Charlie Parker, whose polyrhythmic playing and asymmetric phrasing fascinated him, and Ben Webster, who had taken him under his wing as a
young musician; both influences come across significantly in Tony Scott’s playing: the thin, brittle tone of his virtuoso, up tempo bebop lines
contrasted with the inimitable intimacy and warmth of his legato ballad style, a sound Scott literally breathed into the clarinet unlike anyone.

Goldberg Variations BWV 988
Anastasia Voltchok
When she recorded Bach’s great set of variations in Basel’s Hans Huber Hall, Anastasia Voltchok was keen to play through the
work only twice on one and the same day. A high degree of concentration and vital energy are the preconditions for such a
bold undertaking, to say nothing of the most thorough preparation and years of experience on the concert stage.

which appears to be suspended between the glorious contrapuntal tradition and beautiful melodies that look decidedly

Pergolesi’s early fame and popularity can, to an extent, be attributed to his integration of musical styles. He brought the
theatre into churches, and religious seriousness into theatres, even in an intermezzo: 'A Serpina penserete' is a beautiful
lament that might well be sung by the Virgin Mary. His modernity consists in this, and it is still surprising now.

Verdi’s opera Un Giorno di Regno coincided with the death of his wife, which took place shortly after the death of his two sons. The levity of the
subject-matter of this opera was inevitably incompatible with Verdi’s grief. In a letter to his publisher Tito Ricordi, he saw ‘the work of a poor
young man who was ill, rushed, and devastated by a horrible calamity’ mistreated by its audience.

EUROPAKONZERT 2014 From Berlin
Berliner Philharmoniker, Daniel Barenboim
Otto Nicolai’s The Merry Wives of Windsor is based on William Shakespeare’s comedy of the same name,
and its lively overture has long since secured a place on the concert stage. Also inspired by a
Shakespearean comedy hero is Edward Elgar’s symphonic study Falstaff. We then turn from comedy to
the tragic twists of fate: Tchaikovsky's Fifth Symphony is characterized by a sombre main theme that,
for the Russian composer, symbolizes 'a complete resignation before fate, which is the same as the
inscrutable predestination of fate'.
