2009

Gyorgy Kurtag jr. - sintetizator
Laszlo Hortobagyi - sintetizator, computer
Miklos Lengyelfi - bas, efecte

György Kurtág Jr., son of the great Hungarian composer, has long been developing his own electronic music. In this unusual project, fellow composer László Hortobágyi integrates Kurtág themes into his own arrangements in a recording that celebrates a long friendship. “This is,” say the group members, “a Hortobágyi album about Kurtág,” as well as “an invitation to discover a new sphere of music”.

CD ECM Records Rosamunde Quartett - Tigran Mansurian: String Quartets

2005

Rosamunde Quartet

Andreas Reiner - vioara
Simon Fordham - vioara
Helmut Nicolai - viola
Anja Lechner - violoncel


Both the first and second string quartets by the Lebanese-born Armenian composer Tigran Mansurian are predominantly slow and mournful pieces, each completed in 1984 and written in memory of a recently dead friend. The language is direct, but Mansurian is not of any formulaic minimalist school. Rather, his structures are built on a richness of harmony and melodic expression that allies him to late Beethoven. Both works – each cast in three movements – and the eloquent and dark single movement Testament … are played with miraculously sustained poise by the Rosamunde Quartet.

2006

Armenian Chamber Choir, dirijor Robert Mlkeyan

This is open, honest fare – no games, no gimmicks, no special effects. The musical expression of a poetic image is what engages the composer. Nothing else intrudes because nothing else matters. … The singing pays admirable homage to Mansurians’s music. The recording was made at a concert in an Armenian monastery and is rich and satisfying.

CD ECM Records Tigran Mansurian: Requiem

2017

Anja Petersen - soprana
Andrew Redmond - bariton
RIAS Kammerchor + Münchener Kammerorchester, dirijor Alexander Liebreich

Tigran Mansurian has created a Requiem dedicated to the memory of the victims of the Armenian Genocide that occurred in Turkey from 1915 to 1917. Co-commissioned by the Munich Chamber Orchestra and the RIAS Choir Berlin, Mansurian’s Requiem reconciles the sound and sensibility of his country’s traditions with those of Western practices, the combination of ancient Armenian religious and secular music with the Latin Requiem text “giving rise to something unexpected,” the composer says. This is profoundly moving contemporary composition, illuminated by the “glow of Armenian modality,” as Paul Griffiths puts it in his booklet essay. The work is a milestone for Mansurian, widely acknowledged as Armenia’s greatest composer. The Los Angeles Times has described his music as that “in which deep cultural pain is quieted through an eerily calm, heart-wrenching beauty.”

There’s probably never been a more fascinating viola recording. Most of the music has been written in the last six years, often by middle-aged composers with substantial personalities… One is Betty Olivero, an Israeli who wrote the disc’s title piece… It’s a wonderfully dreamy, collagelike piece, tough, with a clear trajectory in its brooding viola writing, odd but eloquent accordion writing, and tapes of voices singing in welters of Mideast microtones. There’s so much in it that any given listening is going to be a unique and personal dialogue with where you’re at that day. [ David Patrick Stearns, The Philadelphia Inquirer ]

1991

The Hilliard Ensemble :

David James - contratenor
Ashley Stafford - contratenor
John Potter - tenor
Rogers Covey-Crump - tenor
Mark Padmore - tenor
Paul Hillier - barition
David Beavan - bas

Gesualdo was wealthy enough that he never had to depend on a patron; he could therefore write whatever he pleased, in whatever, far-out (to this day), experimental style he chose. His Tenebrae Responsoria are particularly thorny--they're a part of the religious service in which the church's candles are extinguished one at a time until the congregation is sitting in darkness--and Gesualdo's music is incredibly deep and troubling. And, I might add, magnificent. The Hilliards perform them ideally, with great technical accuracy, a sense of the weightiness of the text and music, and simply beautiful sound. This is an example of what makes the Hilliards so special. [ Robert Levine ]

The Hilliard Ensemble interpret new works for vocal ensemble. Many of the pieces presented have been written specifically for the ensemble. Includes the music of Arvo Pärt, James McMillan, Morton Feldman and Ivan Moody. 'Britain's Hilliard Ensemble dares to stitch together threads of traditions from medieval, postmodern and post-minimalist sources, while avoiding trivialities. The quartet maneuvers with a commanding collective voice, enriched by dynamic sensitivity and masterful way with inflection.' [ Los Angeles Times ]

2001

Christoph Poppen - vioara
The Hilliard Ensemble
Monika Mauch - soprana
David James - contratenor
John Potter - tenor
Gordon Jones - bariton

In music of the baroque era it was popular to use the medium of numbers for conveying secrets and riddles, and Bach studies have illuminated many new 'meanings' in his sacred works. Now 'Morimur' explores the coded references, and hidden messages in his solo violin music, opening a window on Bach's thought at a time when he was deeply affected by the sudden and tragic death of his wife, Maria Barbara, in 1720. Building on the research of Professor Helga Thoene, violinist Christoph Poppen and the Hilliard Ensemble have realised a unique project for ECM New Series: They offer a stunning experience by interweaving the verses of the 'hidden chorales' of the Ciaccona with Bach's harmonically complex violin part.

The Hilliard Ensemble

Andreas Hirtreiter Tenor
Gordon Jones Baritone
Michelle Makarski Violin
Lynn Vartan Percussions
Javier Diaz Percussions

American composer Stephen Hartke, born in 1952, deserves to be heard in the UK and beyond. His postmodern scores, drawing deep from the well of plainsong and also inspired by poetic and visual imagery, are strikingly original, as this revelatory disc from ECM proves from the off. Tituli changes the mood with lightning speed, moving from monkish incantations to wild outbursts and back again. The seven-movement work for male voices, violin and percussion sets ancient Roman texts in Old Latin, including shop signs and epitaphs. Cathedral in the Thrashing Rain translates Japanese poet Takamura Kotaro’s evocative impressions of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris into music that you can almost touch and smell.

Working with an incredibly rich harmonic palette, the incisive articulation and collegial homogeneity which the ensemble achieves is remarkable. As one listens to the first section of “Singet dem Herrn” … the combination of terpsichorean grace with contrapuntal fluidity takes the breath away. Even by The Hilliard Ensemble’s elevated standards this is singing of quite extraordinary power. … Captured in the glorious acoustic of the Propstei St Gerold … the kaleidoscopic luminosity of these sui generis works brings the listener irrevocably closer to Bach’s genius.

Alfred Schnittke: Symphony No. 9
Alexander Raskatov: Nunc Dimittis - In Memoriam Alfred Schnittke

Composed shortly before his death in 1998, Schnittke’s ultimate symphony – actually his very last work – is a “Ninth” in a most unusual sense: Put down with a shaky left hand by an artist who had survived four strokes and was laterally debilitated, it is an impressive triumph of spiritual energy over physical constraints. The composer’s widow Irina treated the barely-legible manuscript as a testament and was long doubtful whom to entrust with the difficult task of deciphering and reconstructing the highly expressive three movements for large orchestra (some 38 minutes of music). She finally settled on Moscow-born Alexander Raskatov, who not only provided a thorough score but, convinced that Schnittke had intended to write a fourth movement, also developed the idea to add an independent epilogue, the “Nunc Dimitis” (“Lord, let thy servant now depart into thy promis'd rest”) for mezzo soprano, vocal quartett and orchestra. It is based on the famous text by orthodox monk Starets Siluan and on verses by Joseph Brodsky, Schnittke’s favourite poet.

David James Countertenor
David Gould Countertenor
Rogers Covey-Crump Tenor
Steven Harrold Tenor
Gordon Jones Baritone

An aristocrat who forged an idiosyncratic style of musical expression, Don Carlo Gesualdo, Prince of Venosa, was one of those composers in music history who can truly be described as being ahead of his time: the creator of a harmonic language bold almost to the point of anarchy, whose every unpredictable interval was viewed with suspicion by the opponents of musical autonomy and guardians of liturgically based sacred music. ... The Hilliard Ensemble’s expressive singing, here also featuring soprano Monika Mauch and countertenor David Gould, conjures up that sound described by the great music historian Hans Redlich as growing out of “the antithesis between extravagant/debauched eroticism and self-castigating longing for death”.

Within ‘Atmosphères’ there is a sense of moving from the antiquity of Komitas to creative improvisation, neither completely independent of the other. Because the album successfully exists in two worlds, it has broad appeal and in equal measure for those with an affinity for either. Aarset and Bang's contributions may not always be distinct on first listen but the guitarist provides a denser layer to the music while Bang adds a minimalist variation of orchestration.

Arranged by Hamasyan, the pieces date from the 5th to the 20th centuries and are sung by a 23-strong choir in an earthily passionate liturgical style. The role of the piano is vital: sometimes introducing a theme, sometimes improvising around it, Hamasyan uses the characteristic, Eastern-hued Armenian modes to summon up an ancient world. It’s very different to Jan Garbarek and the Hilliard Ensemble’s million-selling ‘Officium’, but if you liked that, you’ll love this. [ Phil Johnson, Independent On Sunday ]

Sergey Prokofiev - Visions Fugitives Op. 22

Anna Gourari - pian

Gourari triumphs on this program. She handles difficult technical parts with a speech-like continuity that flows the music wonderfully well. The Prokofiev has all the mystery and movement we could ask for. She understands his at times eccentric evocative moods and gives us a reading that glows with freshness. The Chopin has a weighted depth of feeling that neither under nor overplays the sentiments so nobly and fully, pianistically expressed. In every way Anna Gourari brings us her brilliant interpretive skills. The Prokofiev sings, the Chopin reverberates. A beautiful recital!

When she won the 1994 Düsseldorf Shumann Competition she was thought to show ‘an almost mystical quality’ while the critic Harold Schonberg found her playing ‘free but never eccentric’. Much of this programme is contemplative but she’s nonetheless a powerful player in the counterbalancing Chaconnes: the inevitable Bach/Busoni and a dissonant one by Sofia Gubaidulina (very compelling). [...] The piano recording has real presence. [ Christopher Breunig, Hi-Fi News ]
