1976 seems a long time ago, but that's when RR was born. Remember direct-to-disc LPs? That's how we started, but being inexperienced and naïve, our first recording project fell short of
expectations, and was never released. The label got started for real in 1978 when we connected with Keith Johnson and his home-brew focused-gap tape machine, which provided extraordinary

In 1988, Keith Johnson recorded this CD to be sold exclusively at St. Mary's Cathedral. Reference Recordings has now secured rights to issue it in a newly-remastrered HDCD edition with
superior graphics and entirely new music notes. Hear some of the most spectacular organ music ever written, brilliantly played on a huge Ruffatti instrument in a superb acoustical environment
- popular favorites and more than a few rarities. The late John Balka, one of the most exciting performers of his generation, was organist and Director of Music at St. Mary's Cathedral when this
significant recording was made. He was invited to perform at conventions of both the American Guild of Organists and the Organ Historical Society. His achievements for musical
programming and direction during the 1987 San Francisco visit of Pope John Paul II were highly acclaimed. Musicians: John Balka, the Great Organ at St. Mary's Cathedral, San Francisco.

Reinaldo Brahn gehört zur Garde junger brasilianischer Singer/Songwriter, die Einflüsse aus Jazz, Bossa Nova und südamerikanischem Pop zu einer ganz eigenen Melange verbinden. Der
Gitarrist spielt ganz eindeutig südamerikanische Rhythmen und man hört im die Erfahrung von jahrelangen Live-Auftritten an. Unterstützt wird für diese Studio-Aufnahme von einer Truppe von
Profi-Musikern mit einem geradezu gespenstischen Gefühl für Timing. Vielleicht liegt das an der Präsenz von Altmeister Jim Brock an den Percussion-Instrumenten. Die Aufnahme entstand im
Februar 2011 in den Reflection Sound Studios in Charlotte und Jim Brock war tatsächlich als Produzent beteiligt, während Reference Recordings sich um die Aufnahmetechnik in 24 Bit
kümmerte. Das Handbuch enthält Fotos der Musiker und englische Übersetzungen der portugiesischen Songtexte. Wie bei Reference Recordings üblich die Aufnahme in HDCD codiert und

Der Franzose Leo Delibes schrieb die beiden Opern Sylvia (1870) und Coppélia (1876) explizit für Ballettaufführungen mit einem kompletten symphonischen Orchester und beschritt damit
Neuland für das damalige Verständnis von Ballettmusik. In Sylvia findet sich sogar bereits das bis heute in symphonischen Werken ungewöhnliche Saxophon. Leo Delibes Zeitgenosse
Tchaikovsky kommentierte, dass er sich nie getraut hätte den Schwanensee zu schreiben, wäre ihm Sylvia bereits bekannt gewesen. Wie man dies bei einer Reference-Recordings-Aufnahme
erwarten darf, ist sie opulent gelungen und Keith Johnson gibt dem Zuhörer das Gefühl, in der Mitte eines großen Konzertsaals zu sitzen. Eine akustische Illusion, die umso beeindruckender ist, da
die Aufnahme bei Skywalker Sound im Studio und eben nicht in einem klassischen Konzertsaal entstand. Das Handbuch enthält ein Exposé der beiden Opern und die CD ist zusätzlich in HDCD

TRACKS: Symphonic Sketches, Melpomene Overture, Tam O'Shanter, Suite Symphonique, Aphrodite, Elegy.
These celebrated HDCD recordings were greeted with critical raves when first released. American Romantic George Chadwick wrote music full of orchestral color and wide dynamic range.
The Symphonic Sketches have long been an audiophile favorite, but have been sorely in need of a new, top-quality recording. Aphrodite, Tam OÕShanter, Melpomene and the other works have
equally appealing qualities.

Independence and the Bill of Rights of every windband! Recorded by "Prof." Johnson in the big, bold acoustics of the Meyerson Symphony Center, this collection of Sousa favorites and rarities
qualifies as Essential Americana. "America's rise in patriotism following the September 11th attacks is well known, and if any music deserves to be an anthem to this vast sentiment, it is the work
of John Philip Sousa, 'America's March Master,' as this collection is subtitled. Every Sousa march that you can think of is here, including a few like 'El Capitan' and 'The Picadore' that you may
not know were by Sousa but you have heard, and often. The playing and arrangements are stirring, with the Dallas Wind Symphony, Jerry Junkin conducting, creating some real heavy metal.

HDCD RR 108
Track Listing: A Child's Garden of Dreams; 5 movements: First;-----Second;-----Third;----Fourth;----Fifth. In Memoriam; Symphony #4.
Exciting new music for winds,brass,percussion & pipe organ! David Maslanka is the most-performed living composer for wind band. His music is widely known for its accessibility, its brilliant
and imaginative orchestration, and its depth of expression. Maslanka has spent his artistic life exploring what can be called the dreamscape of music. Music, in his words, forms the "balance
point between the conscious and unconscious minds." His music fuels the active power of our waking life, and resonates in the deep pools of what he calls the "mystic, timeless part" of our being
-"the part where dreams come from."
This new recording by America's premier wind band presents three Maslanka works in the finest professional performances they are likely to have. A Child's Garden of Dreams is a
kaleidoscopic exploration of the sonorities and textures available from the modern concert wind band. In Memoriam, based on a Bach chorale, is an eloquent soundscape with an impressive
range of musical color. Symphony #4, an imposing work incorporating the doxology hymn-tune "Old Hundredth," rises to a magnificent climax calling for full forces and pipe organ. As

ENSEMBLE BAROQUE NOUVEAU Rameau: Pièces de clavecin en concerts KLASSIK
HDCD RR 118
Im Jahre 1741 veröffentlichte der Franzose Jean-Philippe Rameau fünf Konzerte für Cembalo in denen der den Begleitmusikern auf Violine, Flöte und Gamba deutlich mehr Freiraum gab, als
es für ihre ursprünglich begleitende Rolle notwendig wäre. Für die Gamba ließ er sogar technisch unmögliche Noten einfließen. Eine Aufforderung an die Musiker in gemeinsamer
Kommunikation mit dieser Herausforderung umzugehen. Die Truppe von Baroque Noeveau nimmt diese Herausforderung an. Passend zur damaligen Art Musik zu machen, in der die Musiker
gemeinsam hinter dem Cembalo standen und alle aus der Partitur des Cembalisten lesen konnten, reicht ein Nicken, um eine Variation oder Improvisation vorzunehmen. Unter den glänzenden
akustischen Bedingungen der Skywalker Studios in Kalifornien spielt das Quartett auf teilweise historischen Instrumenten. Die Aufnahme unter "Prof." Keith Johnson gelang wunderbar
durchhörbar und in perfekter Räumlichkeit. Das Handbuch enthält Fotos der Musiker sowie Informationen zu deren persönlichem Wrdegang. Titel: Concert No. 4 1. La Pantomime 2.
L'Indiscrette 3. La Rameau Concert No. 5 4. La Forqueray 5. La Cupis 6. La Marais Concert No. 1 7. La Coulicam 8. La Livri 9. Le Vézinet Concert No. 2 10. La Laborde 11. La Boucon 12.

Nach seinem erfolgreichen Debüt bei Reference Recordings mit der Aufnahme "World Keys", die es in den USA bis auf Platz drei der Klassikcharts geschafft hat, erscheint jetzt eine neue
Einspielung vom Klaviervirtuosen Joel Fan. In "West of the Sun" beschäftig sich Fan mit amerikanischen Komponisten und ihren unterschiedlichen Einflüssen auf die Pianowiedergabe und die
jüngere amerikanische Musik. Die Solo-Aufnahmen auf Steinway-Flügel fanden unter den technisch perfekten Bedingungen des Skywalker Sounds Studio im Oktober 2008 statt. Joel Fan selbst
schrieb den Text des Handbuches und beschreibt das Werk der einzelnen, von ihm ausgewählten, Komponisten darin. Musikliebhaber sollten besonderes Augenmerk auf die Werke von Margaret
Bonds (der ersten schwarzen Solokünstlerin, die mit dem Chicago Symphony Orchestra spielte) mit ihrer Inspiration durch den Spiritual "Wade in the Water" und auch auf das wesentlich
komplexere Werk von Samuel Barber, das durch Vladimir Horowitz Interpretation schon einige Bekanntheit erreichte, legen. Aufgenommen im HDCD-Verfahren und klanglich makellos. Titel: 1.

FOX, VIRGIL The Bach Gamut - LIVE in San Francisco - 1976
SOLO
HDCD RR 107
TRACK LISTINGS: Johann Sebastian Bach: 1-2 Fantasy and Fugue in G minor, BWV 542; 3 Fugue Reprise; 4 Sheep May Safely Graze, BWV 208; 5-7 Toccata, Adagio and Fugue in C, BWV
564; 8 St. Matthew Passion - Finale, BWV 244; 9-10 Prelude and Fugue in A minor, BWV 543; 11 Air on a G String, BWV 1068; 12-13 Prelude and Fugue in D, BWV 532; 14 I Call to Thee,
Lord Jesus Christ, BWV 639.
It was serendipity, indeed. In September, 1976, America's most renowned organist, Virgil Fox, was to play a series of concerts at St. Mary's Cathedral in San Francisco. RR's own 'Prof.' Keith
Johnson was invited to record everything, and he did, using his legendary hand-built three-channel analogue tape machine. Now, after years of complex negotiations, RR is releasing highlights
from these concerts, featuring the mighty music of Johann Sebastian Bach. Virgil Fox was always controversial. Like Vladimir Horowitz, Fox always gave highly personal interpretations of
everything he played, and purists frequently railed at the liberties he took. But unlike many musicians found on organ benches, Fox was never dull. Invariably, he made one hear the music in a
new way, and audiences roared their approval - as you'll hear at these live performances.

Super-versatile pianist Mike Garson, best known as long-time music director for David Bowie, is a jazzman at heart. Doing what he loves best, with all-star acoustic backup, he made this set in
1986, and it became a long-running audiophile hit. Included are a number of standards, Garson originals and a group improv. If you like good jazz and missed this, don't hestitate.

GARSON, MIKE The Bowie Variations For Piano

1. Space Oddity 2. John, I'm Only Dancing 3. Life On Mars 4. Heroes 5. Ashes to Ashes 6. Variations on "Changes" 7. Let's Dance 8. Medley: Battle for Britain / Loneliest Guy / Disco King 9.
Tribute to David 10. Wild is the Wind Bonus: 11. Space Oddity-take 2 Total playing time, 49:22
Von 1972 bis zum Jahr 2006 war Mike Garson auf fast allen David Bowie Aufnahmen und einer Vielzahl von Tourneen als Pianist zu hören. Bowie selbst bezeichnete Garson als den besten
Rockmusiker der Welt, weil er keinen Rock spiele. Das ist auch für dieses Album eine passende Aussage, denn es handelt sich um Klaviersolo-Variationen von David Bowie Songs, die sich aus
Improvisationen ergeben. Viele der Titel sind nur noch für Fans als Bowies Stücke zu erkennen. Das Stück Neun hingegen ist eine Eigenkomposition Mike Garsons in dem er seine Arbeit mit
David Bowie reflektiert und der Klassiker Space Oddity erscheint in gleich zwei unterschiedlichen Improvisationen. Musikalisch ist das Album am Jazz angelehnt, doch die vereinzelten Overdubs
in denen der große Yamaha Disklavier Flügel mehrfach zu hören ist, erinnern doch deutlich an die Welt des Pop.
Das Album wurde von "Prof." Keith O. Johnson am 23. November 2010 in Kalifornien aufgenommen. Klanglich entsteht eine perfekte Mischung aus direktem Klavierklang und dem Nachhall

2:16 11. Reflections 2:36 12. Reason 4:07 13. Admiration 6:55
Dieses Album enthält verträumte Zusammenspiele von Mike Garson am Piano und Jim Walker an der Querflöte. Garson gilt als der vielseitigste heute aktive Pianist und spielte mit so
unterschiedlichen Stars wie Herbie Hancock, Bill Evans und David Bowie. Walker war ursprünglich Mitglied der Los Angeles Philharmonic und ist heute der wohl am meisten vertretene
Flötenmusiker wenn es um Filmmusik geht und hat in mehr als 500 Produktionen mitgewirkt.
Bis auf eine Ausnahme stammen die Kompositionen auf dieser HDCD von Mike Garson selbst und die Zusammenarbeit mit Jim Walker ging ohrenscheinlich sehr harmonisch vor sich, denn die
Melodien schweben frei im Raum und laden zum Träumen ein. Die Einspielung wurde 1984 von Keith Johnson auf analogem Band aufgenommen und erschien vorerst nur als LP und 1992
schon einmal bei als CD. Diese neue Version ist von den analogen Bändern mit aktueller 24-Bit Technik überarbeitet worden und klanglich sowohl der LP als auch der früheren CD überlegen.

Titel: 1. Rumble 2. All Blues 3. It's You or No One 4. A Song for You 5. Waltz for Bill 6. A Night in Tunisia 7. A Gershwin Fatasia 8. Nardis 9. Count Your Blessings
Was haben David Bowie, Stan Getz, Stanley Clarke, die Nine Inch Nails, die Smashing Pumpkins, Seal und das Los Angeles Philharmonie Orchester gemeinsam? Sie haben mit Mike Garson als
Pianisten gearbeitet. Garson gilt als der wohl vielseitigste Studiopianist für die Größen des Geschäfts. Sein besonderes Talent ist es Töne aus seinem Instrument kommen zu lassen, die einfach
nur perfekt passen und perfekt sind. Für diese Aufnahmen trägt er seine Jazz Hut - Bill Evans wäre wohl eifersüchtig gewesen. Trent Reznor von den Nine Inch Nails sagte über Mike Garson:
"Ich bin eigentlich überhaupt nicht scharf darauf mit irgend welchen anderen Leuten zusammen zu arbeiten. Wenn es sein müsste wäre da dieser Pianist von David Bowies Band ... ich verstehe
einfach nicht, wie er diese Töne auf seinem Instrument hinbekommt." Mike Garson selbst hat die neue Verpackung für diesen Titel kreiert. Die aufgeführten Titel erscheinen bereits auf den
nicht mehr erhältlichen Reference Recordings Titeln RR-53 und RR-S4, wurden jedoch neu abgemischt und erreichen gemeinsam die beachtliche Spielzeit von mehr als 74 Minuten. Wer
einmal die schnellsten Finger des Jazz erleben möchte, wie sie über ein Yamaha CFIIIS oder ein Bösendorfer 290SE fliegen, der ist hier richtig. Die Aufnahme ist gigantisch. Satt, räumlich und

Prof. Johnson brilliantly captures the spectacular sounds of the massive Schoenstein Organ of First-Plymouth Congregational Church, Lincoln Nebraska. Felix Hell is one of the most exciting
and remarkable organists on today's concert scene. His virtuosity and dazzling technique, and his profound understanding of the music is all the more remarkable in a musician just 17 years of
age! He is gaining an international reputation as an up-and-coming superstar of the King of Instruments, and his gifts are fully on display in this recording of some of the greatest of the organ

und die Ermangelung einer richtigen musikalischen Ausbildung führten zu sehr ungewöhnlichen Griffen an die Ventile des Instrumentes, die man heute als "False-Fingering" bezeichnet und für

JUNKIN, JERRY & DALLAS WIND SYMPHONY Percy Granger: Lincolnshire KLASSIK
HDCD RR 117
Die Dallas Wind Symphony unter der Leitung von Jerry Junkin ist Amerikas einziges Vollzeit-Blasorchester. Kaum ein anderes Orchester könnte sich den Werken des australischen Musikers und
Komponisten mit einer Vorliebe für alternative Instrumentierungen so eindrucksvoll widmen. Besonders seine Vorstellung von möglichst großen Besetzungen mit eben so großer Spielfreude
ließen sich hervorragend umsetzen. Auch seine Anweisungen nach doppelter Paukenbesetzung und Sonderinstrumenten wie einem tiefer gestimmten Glockenspiel wurden befolgt. Percy
Grainger (1882-1961) lässt sich am einfachsten als sehr individuelle Persönlichkeit beschreiben. Trotz klassischer musikalischer Ausbildung in Deutschland verfolgte er die Idee einer
volkstümlichen und nordisch geprägten Musik. Er sammelte mit Hingabe lokales Liedgut und machte Aufnahmen auf Wachzylindern um die feinen Nuancen in den nur mündlich überlieferten
Stücken einfangen zu können. In späteren Jahren entwickelte er seinen eigenen Musikstil und seine experimentelle Verwendung von Instrumenten gewagt weiter. So konnte ein Blasorchester
durchaus zusätzlich mit Piano und Harfe besetzt werden und Saxophone treten am Besten nur als große Gruppe auf. Die vorliegende Aufnahme wurde durch "Prof." Keith Johnson im August
2008 in Dallas, Texas im Meyerson Symhony Center volldigital aufgenommen. Das beiliegende Handbuch enthält Erläuterungen der einzelnen Stücke und sogar eine Auflistung aller Musiker

Tracks: Partita; Fantasia for Strings; Winterreise; Sonata for Solo Violin (Gonzalo Acosta, violin).
Jose Serebrier, a protege of Antal Dorati and Leopold Stokowski, is known for his mastery of the colorful, virtuoso scores of the Russian school.
Serebrier Conducts Serebrier is the first CD devoted entirely to his own prize-winning compositions. The Partita (Symphony No.2), a large four-movement work with colorful Latin flavors, here
receives its first complete recording, and the program otherwise presents WORLD PREMEIRES. The Fantasia is a exciting workout for strings, and Winterreise (for full orchestra) is a new
composition, written especially for this release.
The well-known British violinist Gonzalo Acosta is the foremost exponent of Serebrier's youthful Sonata for violin solo, and gives a memorable performance for its first recording.

Die Neuproduktion des Westküstenbluesers wurde schon im Jahr 2009 in den Pacifica Studios in Kalifornien eingespielt und blieb bis vor kurzem ohne Veröffentlichung. Warum? Vielleicht ist
die Zeit in der ein Bluesmusiker einfach nur den Blues spielen konnte und dabei virtuos mit der Gitarre umgeht und clevere Texte schreibt vorbei. Keines der großen Label hatte Interesse an der
fertigen Produktion und schließlich sprang Reference Recordings mit dem Sublabel FRESH in die Bresche und "Prof." Keith O. Johnson übernahm gleich noch das finale Mastering.
Das Album besteht mit seinen elf Stücken aus der Feder MacLeods und dieser lebt seine Blues-Historie und die langjährige Erfahrung als Sideman bei den großen der Branche aus. Man hat nie
das Gefühl, als müsste ein Song jetzt in ein bestimmtes Format gedrückt werden, sondern viel mehr, dass der Titel so und nicht anders erwachsen ist. Ob es beim Titelstück Brand New Eyes
darum geht die Welt mit neuen Augen zu sehen oder bei Something Dark is Walking um die Dämonen in uns und um uns herum, immer ist das unterliegende Thema Selbstheilung und der Blick

Toningenieur "Prof." Keith Johnson, der mehrfach für seine Arbeit mit dem Grammy ausgezeichnet wurde, widmete sich für There's A Time zum ersten Mal einer Blues-Aufnahme. Er
positionierte den Singer-/Songwriter MacLeod mit seinen Kollegen Denny Croy (Bass) und Jimi Bott (Schlagzeug) in einen Aufnahmesaal der Skywalker Studios. Die Musiker saßen im Kreis,
konnten sich während des Spielens sehen - und dann musizierten sie live, ohne Kopfhörer und ohne zusätzlich hinzu gemischte Aufnahmen. MacLeod, der mit Legenden wie Big Joe Turner, Pee
Wee Crayton, Eddie "Cleanhead" Vinson, Big Mama Thornton und George "Harmonica" Smith arbeitete, spielt eine unorthodoxe, aber bestechend kraftvolle Rhythmusgitarre. Die Instrumente,
die er für das Album nutzt, tragen Namen wie "Moon" (eine National M-1 Tricone), "Little Bit (Gibson C-100 FE) und "Owl" (National Style "O"), außerdem spielte er eine National El Trovador
12-string. Sein Talent als Geschichtenerzähler zeigt sich in Titeln wie My In-laws Are Outlaws oder dem humorvollen St Elmo's Rooms and Pool. 2013 ist MacLeod in der Kategorie Acoustic

"Alle drei 'Tondichtungen' stellen existentielle Augenblicke des menschlichen Lebens in den Mittelpunkt. Diese das Leben prägenden Momente verdienen besondere interpretatorische
Aufmerksamkeit und Scharfsinnigkeit. Wenn die sterbende Figur in 'Tod und Verklärung' ihr Leben reflektiert, hört man beispielsweise tanzähnliche, schwungvolle Momente - Erinnerungen an
seine Zeit als Student. [.] Während die Höhepunkte in der Gerichtsszene von 'Till Eulenspiegel' und im letzten stürmischen Cre cendo in 'Don Juan' kurz vor dem Ende kommen, ist 'Tod und

Diese Aufnahme aus dem Jahr 1996 wurde vom Team um "Prof." Keith O. Johnson im Januar 1996 in der Orchestra Hall in Minneapolis eingefangen. Es sollte jedoch bis zum Jahr 2011

Solomon und der Königin von Sheba. Die Freizügigkeit Respighis verhinderte zunächst eine Aufführung, bis die Mailänder Scala eine Premiere wagte. Dies ist erst die zweite Aufnahme der

"Dazzling orchestral colors," is one one way to describe the music of Ottorino Respighi. "Belkis, Queen of Sheba" was conceived as an evening-long ballet with singing whose lavishness has kept
it from view since its La Scala premiere. This is only the second recording of a suite prepared by the composer -for the first time with the tenor solo (sung by Chad Shelton), and with the
movements in the correct order. The music's oriental perfumes and barbaric splendor guarantee the enthusiasm of anyone who hears it. "Dance of the Gnomes" is a little-known but
characteristically dramatic and colorful (some might say "lurid") tone poem. "Prof." Johnson's stunning HDCD¬ sonics make Respighi's greatest hit "The Pines of Rome" (with extra brasses and
organ!) a dazzling conclusion to this unusual, inventive program.

why you got into the audiophile game in the first place." - SoundStage.com - complete review - "Best Recordings of 2001" Sergei Rachmaninoff was one of the most beloved composers of the
twentieth century. His music is redolent of his Russian homeland, and it sings long, lush melodies that define the term "romantic." Everyone who knows and loves his piano concertos will enjoy
these lyrical and dynamic works for orchestra. The "Symphonic Dances" in recent years have become one of Rachmaninoff's most-performed scores. The five "Ètudes-Tableaux" were
orchestrated by Ottorino Respighi from the brilliant originals for piano. "Vocalise" is one of the great classical melodies, and is hummable by everyone. Initial response from renowned

Minnesota Orchestra ~ Minnesota Chorale ~ Paul Goodwin, Conductor ~ Jorja Fleezanis, Violin ~ Patricia Rozario, Soprano ~ Tim Krol, Baritone
One of today's most celebrated composers, Sir John Tavener has earned a huge following worldwide for the combination of spiritual mysticism, reverent yearning and passion that suffuses all
of his music. This work originated as a commission for Jorja Fleezanis, concertmistress of the Minnesota Orchestra, on the occasion of the orchestra's Centennial. This magnificent work
expresses a moving interplay between the forces of the orchestra, depicting aspects of the Divine Spirit, and the violin, representing the "Divine Eros" - "our longing for God and His longing for
us." The music speaks deeply to a universal longing for love, peace and transcendence that unites all faiths. Prof. Johnson's recording amazingly captures the enveloping sound of the massed
orchestra, choir and soloists in the magnificent acoustics of the Cathedral of Saint Paul, MN, creating a transcendent musical and sonic experience.

American pianist Gary Graffman has been a major figure in the music world since 1949. He made an extensive series of acclaimed recordings for CBS and RCA with the orchestras of New
York, Philadelphia, Cleveland, Chicago and Boston. His performing career was curtailed by an injury to his right hand, and now his performances focus on the repertoire for piano left hand.
Stanislaw Skrowaczewski is an internationally-known conductor and composer. Concerto Nicolò was commissioned for Gary Graffman, and is a lighthearted score based on the famous 24th
Caprice of Nicolò Paganini. The Concerto for Orchestra is a brilliantly-scored work. "The slight Paganini snippet is developed and redeveloped, transmuting it into the musical equivalent of
precious metal. The Concerto Nicolo should become a major addition to the piano left hand repertory. . . Warmly recommended." --Ronald Legum, Audiophile Audition - www.audaud.com

Gerard Schwarz und das Seattle Symphony Orchestra bilden eine der gelungensten und gefeiertsten musikalischen Ehen der Klassikwelt. Ausgezeichnet unter anderem mit zwei GrammyAwards und acht Grammy-Nominierungen gehören sie zu den am meisten aufgenommenen Orchestern der USA. Für Mozarts Klavierkonzerte 21 und 24 arbeiteten sie mit dem international
renommierten Pianisten Eugene George Istomin zusammen, den eine lebenslange Leidenschaft für Mozarts Werk mit den Stücken verbindet. Das 21. Klavierkonzert in C-Dur gehörte mit
seinem heiteren Ton und der großen Orchesterbesetzung zu den Lieblingswerken des Pianisten, das er u.a. anlässlich des Antrittskonzerts 1981 für Präsident Ronald Reagan spielte. Auch für das
24. Klavierkonzert, das Mozart-Experten als "eine Explosion dunkler, tragischer Gefühle" bezeichnen, entschied sich der Komponist für eine der größten Orchesterbesetzungen seines Schaffens.
Istomin und Schwarz, Freunde und Kollegen über mehr als 20 Jahre, nahmen die beiden Konzerte an 10. Oktober 1995 im St. Thomas Center in Washington auf und bewahrten dabei durch
wenige Unterbrechungen die Kontinuität und Dynamik eines Live-Konzerts. Verantwortlich für die Aufzeichnung war Toningenieur "Prof." Keith Johnson, das Half-speed Mastering für die

Kammermusik
Dies ist das zweite Werk welches "Prof." Johnson von der Kansas City Symphony aufnimmt und dieses Mal hat man sich mit dem Community of Christ Auditorium in Independence, Missouri
einen spektakulären Ort für den gleichfalls spektakulären Klang des Orchesters ausgesucht. Drei Werke von Benjamin Britten stehen auf dem Programm und die Wahl viel auf drei sehr
unterschiedliche Stücke des wohl bekanntesten britischen Komponisten des 20. Jahrhunderts. The Young Person's Guide to Orchestra wurde als Auftragswerk von Britten mit damals erst 31
Jahren geschrieben. Es sollte die Musik zu einem Dokumentarfilm sein, der die Instrumente eines modernen symphonischen Orchesters vorstellt. Britten bearbeitete hiefür ein Thema von
Henry Purcell aus dem Jahr 1695. Sowohl im Film als auch in den ersten Orchesteraufführungen gab es noch einen Sprecher, der jedoch mit zunehmender Popularität des Werkes heute nicht
mehr auftritt. Das Thema wird zuerst vom gesamten Orchester gespielt und dann in 13 Variationen durch die einzelnen Orchestersegmente interpretiert bevor wieder das gesamte Orchester
spielt. Dies sind die einzelnen musikalischen Stationen: 1. Flöte, Querflöte und Harfe 2. Oboen 3. Klarinetten 4. Fagotte 5. Violinen 6. Bratschen 7. Celli 8. Kontrabässe 9. Harfe 10. Hörner 11.

William Shakespeares "The Tempest" (Der Sturm) ist das Ausgangswerk dieser beiden sehr unterschiedlichen musikalischen Bearbeitungen. Sir Arthur Sullivan (1842-1900) komponierte seine
musikalische Darstellung des Stückes im Alter von nur 19 Jahren und dirigierte es 1861 selbst als seine Abschlussarbeit am Konservatorium in Leipzig. Der deutliche Einfluss des Werkes von
Mendelssohn (dem Direktor des Konservatoriums) sei ihm somit verziehen. Im Jahr 1862 wurde das Werk im Londoner Glaspalast gespielt und Sullivan trat eine Stelle als Organist am Royal

CLARK TERRY, one of the "grand old men" of jazz, enjoyed a stellar career as soloist with the big bands of Duke Ellington, Count Basie, and The Tonight Show, among others. RR had the grand
opportunity to record his fabled trumpet and flugelhorn artistry with Bob Lark and the DePaul University Big band in two programs, both now out of print. THE CHICAGO SESSIONS is a
"cream of the crop" selection from both, sonically fine-tuned by "Prof." Johnson to sound even better than the originals. Extra added attractions are two tunes with scat vocals by Clark Terry's
alter-ego "Mumbles."
Clark Terry's career in jazz spans more than sixty years. He performed for seven U.S. Presidents, and was a Jazz Ambassador for State Department tours in the Middle East and Africa. More
than fifty jazz festivals in all seven continents still feature him. He received a Grammy Award, two Grammy certificates, three Grammy nominations, thirteen honorary doctorates, keys to

The Turtle Creek Chorale, America's finest male chorus, has a long history with RR. Starting in 1992, they gave a spine-tingling performance of Randall Thompson's Testament of Freedom, and
continued with four more critically-acclaimed CDs including one of RR's all-time best sellers, the Requiem by John Rutter.
The Chorale's long-time conductor, Dr. Timothy Seelig, recently announced his retirement, and expressed the wish that he could make one more recording with RR. The result is SERENADE,
and Dr. Seelig says he could have no finer going-away present.

HDCD RR 104
SINFONISCH
Track Listing: SUSATO: Danserye (9); VAUGHAN WILLIAMS: English Folk Song Suite; DEL TREDICI: In Wartime DAUGHERTY: Bells for Stokowski.
Nine delightful Renaissance dances by Tielman Susato start this program with a bang. The ever-popular English Folksong Suite by Ralph Vaughan Williams in its original scoring continues the
crowd-pleasing mood. Two important new works follow. David Del Tredici's first composition for wind band, In Wartime, is based on the popular hymn "Abide With Me" and the Persian
national anthem. Michael Daugherty is one of the most performed and commissioned American composers of his generation. Bells for Stokowski is a fantasy in which the composer imagines
Leopold Stokowski in Philadelphia, hearing all the bells of the city resonate. It's a sonic spectacular, captured to perfection by "Prof." Johnson in his most dazzling HDCD sound.

Lena Frank's Three Latin American Dances. Music and dance are as old as mankind itself. This recording presents dance modes from three cultures: music by an American of Peruvian-Jewish
descent (Frank, b.1972 Berkeley CA) living in California, an American steeped in the culture of New York City (Bernstein), and a Russian (Rachmaninov) living in America. More information

VON STADE, FREDERICA + MINNESOTA ORCHESTRA Eiji Oue Casa Guidi - CHOR + LIED
HDCD RR 100
Track Listing:Casa Guidi: Five Songs for Mezzo-soprano and Orchestra: Capriccio for Clarinet and Orchestra (Rossini in Paris) Burt Hara, clarinet; In Praise of Music: Seven Songs for Orchestra.
This magical CD brings together world premiere recordings of three works by one of America's outstanding living composers, Dominick Argento (b.1927), and features the magnificent singing
of mezzo-soprano Frederica von Stade. "Everything Argento writes . . .originates in his love for the voice. His subject is self-discovery - the human condition illuminated by music of
extraordinary lyric beauty." Casa Guidi, with Ms von Stade, is a set of five songs with orchestra based on letters of poet Elizabeth Barrett Browning. Argento's Capriccio for Clarinet and
Orchestra ("Rossini in Paris") is a delightful tribute to the spirit and melodic brilliance of the great 19th century composer of "The Barber of Seville". Finally, In Praise of Music: Seven Songs for
Orchestra is a brilliant symphonic tribute to the glory of music itself, drawing inspiration from the spirit of music expressed by many cultures over the centuries. Pulitzer Prize winning Dominick
Argento is the Composer Laureate of the Minnesota Orchestra and under the direction of Eiji Oue, that orchestra plays with passion, panache and tremendous sensitivity to this beautiful music.
