Image Violin Concertos
This release arguably features the two greatest concertos ever written for the violin: performed by one of the most brilliant violinists of her generation,together with one of the finest orchestras,and under the baton of one of the world's foremost conductors.This recording of Tchaikovsky/Mendelssohn violin concertos bears witness to the eminence of the collaboration between violinist Arabella Steinbacher, conductor Charles Dutoit and PENTATONE's Orchestra of the Season January-June 2015, Orchestre de la Suisse Romande, and the result thereof.After waiting for a long time to record these concertos with the perfect collaboration,Arabella Steinbacher didn't waste any chance to shine with heart-felt enthusiasm and bravura in this recording.Her performance produced such a pure, yet fierce sound that it allowed the music to speak in an immediate, translucent way. Recorded in September 2014 in the magnificent Victoria Hall, Geneva, the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande were totally at home with the repertoires and performed with great confidence;they were led by Dutoit, who was vivid, rhythmic and clear in his direction. The vigorous playing results in a vibrant sound that is captured perfectly in this multi-channel SACD recording.

Image Serenade
Thomas Hampson's acclaimed portrayals of iconic roles in French operatic works have spanned the duration of his singular international career. A longtime champion of French repertoire, he has starred in the title roles of Chausson's Le roi Arthus at Opéra National de Paris; Massenet's Werther (baritone version) at The Metropolitan Opera and Théâtre National du Châtelet; Massenet's Thaïs (Athanaël) at Lyric Opera of Chicago and The Metropolitan Opera; Offenbach's Les Contes d'Hoffmann (Four Villains) at the Royal Opera House - Covent Garden; and Thomas' Hamlet at the Théâtre National du Châtelet. He has also performed in Massenet's Manon (Lescaut), Gounod's Faust (Valentin), Berlioz' Les Troyens (Chorèbe), and Poulenc's Les mamelles de Tirésias (Gendarme). Additionally, Hampson has been featured on critically lauded recordings of Faust, Les Contes d'Hoffmann, Thaïs, and Werther. Mr. Hampson carries the title of Commandeur dans l’Ordre des Arts et des Lettres of the Republic of France.

With "Serenade," his first album exclusively dedicated to French song, Mr. Hampson brings his passion for works by French opera composers to the PENTATONE label. Curated with the French Literature scholar Sylvain Fort and in a first collaboration with the Polish pianist Maciej Pikulski, the track listing includes romantic and introspective as well as humorous selections by Bizet, Chabrier, Chausson, Gounod, Magnard, Massenet, and Saint-Saëns, featuring texts written by some of France's most revered writers including Victor Hugo, Paul Verlaine, Rosemonde Gérard, and others.

Image Der Zigeunerbaron
Nikolai Schukoff, Heinz Zednik, Renate Pitscheider and others.
NDR Radiophilharmonie / Larry Foster

Johann Strauss Jr. is the most prominent member of the famous musical Strauss family and with more than 500 dance compositions to his name, became known as ‘The Waltz King’. While conducting the world première of his operetta Der Zigeunerbaron at the Theater an der Wien on 24 October 1885, Strauss junior lived one of, if not the biggest, stage successes of his career. Der Zigeunerbaron received 87 successive performances, which made it even more successful than Die Fledermaus and during the composer’s lifetime alone, the operetta was performed in more than 140 theaters.

Originally Strauss intended to perform the 3 act operetta, on a libretto by Ignaz Schnitzer, at the Vienna Court Opera, rather than the Theater an der Wien. Even though this didn’t work out for contractual reasons, it may be seen as a reflection of the composer’s ambition to outgrow the dance hall. Der Zigeunerbaron clearly is a much more dramatic piece than Die Fledermaus and is by many considered to be a comic opera, instead of a genuine operetta. Johann Strauss junior forever stayed The Waltz King, but Der Zigeunerbaron became a success until present day. With the release of this 2-SACD album, now to be enjoyed in a splendid May 2015 recording by the NDR Radiophilharmonie and the NDR Chor conducted by Lawrence Foster.

Image Symphony No. 4
Mahlers Symphony No. 4 portrays another side of the composer, different to the one hitherto seen by the general public. No major battles are fought in this symphony; rather, it is a portrayal of a childlike vision of life and a better world in the Hereafter. Mahlers Dutch friend and colleague, Alphons Diepenbrock, may well have provided the most fitting description of the nature of this symphony and its position within Mahlers oeuvre: [...] in his Symphony No. 4, he exclusively praises the sensations of the soul, severed from all earthly ties, from various angles either as childish yet unearthly merriment, or as the highest ecstasy attained by mystics in bygone years during the contemplation of the divine. However, one should not search for irony here. The work is like a beautiful dream, an indispensable link in the series of Mahlers nine symphonies that speak sufficiently of harsh reality, and that, according to some, will one day be considered the monumental musical oeuvre of the present day. The Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra lives up to its reputation for its brilliant Mahler performances and surpasses all expectations under the baton of conductor Marc Albrecht. And Elizabeth Watts performance in the final movement is surely one not to be missed. The chemistry between Watts and the orchestra is utterly pervasive. With a voice described by International Record Review as one of the most beautiful Britain has produced in a generation, Watts sweeps the listener off their feet with this sunny, accessible symphony from Mahler. The perfect combination of immaculate performance with impeccable PENTATONE sound quality can only result in a magical musical experience.

Image Violin Sonatas
A stunning recital of romantic sonatas from Arabella Steinbacher, whose recent disc of Mozart Violin Concertos was a Gramophone Editors Choice. Violinist Arabella Steinbacher and pianist Robert Kulek continue their great collaboration with a new PENTATONE release, the recording of César Francks Sonata for Piano and Violin in A, which joins Richard Strauss Sonata for Violin and Piano in E-flat, Op. 18. While Francks violin sonata is epic in character, Strauss work is full of jovial energy, hope and anticipation. This fusion of elements brilliantly demonstrates the synergy between Steinbacher and Kulek, something we have witnessed during their recital performances over the past few years. Needless to say, both artists possess superb technique. Steinbacher demonstrates her delicate yet fiery touch, most notably in the robust Franck score, while Kulek plays with resolute intonation, steadfast tempo, and broad dynamics. Steinbacher maintains her performance as an equal partner without dominating her counterpart.

Image Here/After
Music: Jake Heggie
Poetry: Gene Scheer

All of the pieces try to give voice to people no longer on the planet -- artists like Camille Claudel, Francis Poulenc, Wanda Landowska, Pierre Bernac, Paul Eluard -- also to people lost in the 9/11 attacks -- also voices to artworks by painters and sculptors no longer alive --- So HERE_AFTER gives a nice double play to the idea of the spiritual hereafter; that these voices are here even after the sources are gone; that we can "hear" them after they are gone

Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks
Chorus Masters: Jörn Hinnerk Andresen and Robert Blank Münchner Rundfunkorchester
Conducted by Asher Fisch and Ulf Schirmer

As is often the case in the vocal compositions of distinguished American composer Gordon Getty, many of the pieces collected in The Little Match Girl are based on, or inspired by, poetry from the nineteenth and earlytwentieth centuries. This SACD starts with "A prayer for my daughter" for chorus and orchestra, based on the poem by William Butler Yeats which is, according to Getty, "...one of the most admired works by one of the most admired poets of the age". It is followed by "Poor Peter" for tenor, chorus and orchestra, with lyrics by Getty himself inspired by Poe and again Yeats. Then follows the titular "The little match girl"; the heartbreaking fairy tale by Hans Christian Andersen, put to music more or less word-for-word in a challenging setting for the orchestra and particularly the chorus. The disc concludes with "Joan and the bells", Getty's own narrative of the trial of Joan of Arc, about which he said, "It was the genius of Shaw that inverted this safe literary tradition and brought out the spunky teenager in Joan. Jean Anouilh went farther, in The Lark, and gave her the simplicity of preadolescence. Joan and the Bells owes much to these masters, particularly Anouilh, and takes the same poetic license. It is a tale of a child's faith in an age without childhood, of a valour undeflected, and of the redemption these qualities commend."

The disc comes with a booklet containing the complete lyrics to all the pieces as well as personal comments about the music by the composer himself, which enriches the listening experience.

This recording by the Münchner Rundfunkorchester and the Chor des Bayerischen Rundfunks was conducted by Asher Fisch and Ulf Schirmer respectively. It features magnificent soloists such as tenor Nikolai Schukoff ("Poor Peter"),soprano Melody Moore ("Joan and the Bells") and baritone Lester Lynch ("Joan and the Bells").

Russian National Orchestra / Mikhail Pletnev

Back in 1990, highly respected both nationally and internationally, Russian pianist and conductor Mikhail Pletnev formed the first independent orchestra in the history of his country, the Russian National Orchestra. Many of Russia’s finest musicians joined him in the launch of this ensemble, which achieved a towering stature among the world’s orchestras within a short period and which Pletnev continues to serve as Artistic Director and Principal Conductor. Twenty-five years ago, the first recording the RNO ever made was of Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 6, the Pathétique. This album combines Peter Ilyich Tchaikovsky’s Coronation March (1883), Capriccio Italien , Op. 45, Francesca da Rimini, Op. 32, Romeo and Juliet (1880) and Marche Slave, Op. 31. It completes the Tchaikovsky cycle including the integral symphonies and the Manfred Symphony, the RNO recorded for PENTATONE between 2011 and 2014, under the baton of its artistic director Mikhail Pletnev.

At the occasion of the orchestra’s 25th anniversary in 2015, the cycle was re-released as a 7-SACD box-set. With a musical content varying from virtuoso fireworks to ravishing lyricism, one could say this disc is a true coronation of the first 25 years of this magnificent orchestra.

Matt Haimovitz, cello
Itamar Golan, piano

Miró Quartet

The fifth album to be released in the PENTATONE Oxingale series since PENTATONE and Oxingale Records joined forces in February 2015 combines two great masterpieces of Franz Schubert - the Sonata for Arpeggione and Piano in A minor, D. 821 and the String Quintet in C Major, D956.

Schubert wrote the sonata D. 821 for the arpeggione, a six stringed instrument similar to the viola da gamba, invented in 1723 and falling into oblivion not much more than a decade later. With the Arpeggione no longer around the sonata is usually played on the cello or viola. In this 2001 performance Grammy-nominated cellist Matt Haimovitz is joined by renowned pianist and chamber musician Itamar Golan. Finished only a few months before his untimely death in November 1828, Schubert’s String Quintet in C major, set for the rather unusual combination of string quartet plus a second cello, received its first public performance in 1850 and was published only in 1853. Nowadays generally considered to be one of the greatest masterpieces in the chamber music repertoire, it is hard to imagine that the Quintet remained unheard for such a long time.

On this album it can be heard in a 2003 performance by Matt Haimovitz and the Miró Quartet.

Image Années de Pèlerinage
The seeds were planted in the early 1970s when Deutsche Grammophon realised what amazing results could be achieved by recording on multi-channel tapes, using either four or eight channels. Yet, due to a few restrictions, they never fully blossomed. Flaws in the playback equipment meant that music connoisseurs were prevented from enjoying these recordings in the way that artists, producers, engineers and other professionals intended, even though recording technology was already way ahead of its time. Now over a quarter of a century later and thanks to the arrival of the multi-channel Super Audio CD, there is finally a system available which permits these precious recordings to be released in the quality they deserve. One of those precious recordings comes in the form of the Franz Liszts Années de Pèlerinage II & Deux Légendes, which ranks among his most important works. Franz Liszt, the prodigious pianist, didnt only draw his inspiration from art forms such as literature and visual arts, but also sought to collect them in a synaesthetic sense as a composer. Wilhelm Kempffs performance in this recording reflects all of those features engaged in detail in an exemplary manner. Referring specifically to Kempffs non-bombastic Liszt, (Arthur) Brendel called them the greatest we have. In Kempff's hands, the pieces do indeed turn into a pilgrimage as the two Franciscan pieces integrate seamlessly into the journey. Get ready to follow the pilgrimage as it takes place.

Image On My Journey Now - Spirituals & Hymns
ABOUT Life affirming, defiant and uplifting, there is nothing quite like the extraordinary power and simplicity of American Spirituals to move and inspire, abundantly demonstrated here by the acclaimed American operatic baritone Lester Lynch in this new release from PENTATONE of familiar and well-loved spirituals and hymns. Conceived under conditions of tremendous hardship, these emotionally charged songs speak of the indomitable human will to live and to triumph over despair against the odds. Defiant and jubilant, they communicate the unquenchable longing for freedom and salvation. “I have dreamed of recording this album from the inception of my career,” writes Lester Lynch in the accompanying album notes. “To realize that dream at this particular moment in time, to record these songs of freedom … echoes the spiritual tradition and revolutionary act of those who raised their voices in song against brutality and inequality.” Lester Lynch personally chose and arranged the songs in this release, each with a particular accompaniment—piano, organ, acoustic guitar, violin, trumpet, harmonica, drum, and djembe (a West African goblet drum). From the rhythmic By An’ By and Ev’ry Time I Feel De Spirit, to the richly melodic Amazing Grace and Deep River, the 24 songs constantly astonish and delight for their range and depth and their unfailing power to move. “Music speaks to and heals the human spirit,” writes Lynch. “These songs have had a profound effect on American history. I sing them to honor those who struggled (and died) for freedom, and it is my hope that they will spark the light of freedom anew for every listener.” Lester Lynch is joined on this recording by Victor Simonson (pianist and arranger), Brian Farrell (keyboards and arranger) and the ART Singers and Oakland School of the Arts Ensemble (Choral Director, Alexander Taite).

Image Piano Concertos, Vol. 2
After an acclaimed first installment, Inon Barnatan, Alan Gilbert and the Academy of St Martin in the Fields complete their Beethoven piano concertos diptych. This recording project bears the fruit of longstanding and profound musical friendships, and – surprisingly – offers the first integral recording of Beethoven piano concertos by the Academy of St Martin in the Fields, one of the most-recorded ensembles in the world of classical music. While the 2nd Piano Concerto is fairly Mozartian in spirit, the famous 5th “Emperor” Concerto reveals Beethoven’s full maturation, and is one of the most popular piano concertos to this very day. These pieces are complemented by two rarities: Beethoven’s arrangement for piano and orchestra of his Violin Concerto, as well as his Choral Fantasy, a small-scale forerunner of his epic “Choral” Ninth Symphony. Inon Barnatan is one of the most admired pianists of his generation (New York Times). The Academy of St Martin in the Fields has built a consistent repertoire with the label throughout the years. Alan Gilbert made his PENTATONE debut with Beethoven Piano Concertos Part 1 in 2019.

Arabella Steinbacher (violin)

Festival Strings Lucerne, Daniel Dodds

Arabella Steinbacher is one of the fastest-rising stars in the world of music today. This young performer is already being hailed as one of the truly great violinists of our times, acclaimed by The New York Times for playing with 'balanced lyricism and fire'.

At the age of 8, Ms Steinbacher was already performing her first violin concerto by the composer. And since then, the work has reappeared throughout her successful career like a leitmotiv. Yet her performance has never appeared on a CD, Following repeated requests from concert audiences, it is now finally 'Zeit Fur Mozart' (= time for Mozart): the fulfilment of a long-cherished wish, not only for Arabella, but also for her many followers. For all those aficionados who want to enjoy Mozart's most playful melodies, this is sure to be a case of 'love at first listen'.

Image Divertimento & Preludes to Bach
Mozart’s brilliance at the keyboard is well known, but it was his joy in play­ing the viola – and the musical dialogue and kinship of playing with friends – that led the composer to write his music for string trio. This album features Mozart’s Divertimento in E-flat major, as well as his string trio arrangements of three fugues from Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier. In the three additional preludes to his Bach arrangements, Mozart reached an impressive symbiosis between Bach’s musical language and his own style. Jonathan Crow, Douglas McNabney and Matt Haimovitz catch the singular spirit of Mozart’s take on Bach and offer one of the most animated interpretations of Mozart’s Divertimento. Previously released in the US alone as Mozart the Mason on Oxingale, this 2006 recording will now be released worldwide and digitally for the first time as part of the PENTATONE OXINGALE SERIES.

Image Symphonies Nos. 1 & 6
On his first album released on PENTATONE, multiple prizewinning conductor René Jacobs finally records Schubert, his first great musical love. Jacobs delivers his fresh perspective on the favourite composer of his youth together with the exceptional players of the B’Rock Orchestra, acclaimed for their inspired playing, musical curiosity and original approach to the classics.

The album contains Schubert’s First and Sixth symphonies, written when he was still a teenager. With this recording, Jacobs and the B’Rock Orchestra lift out the maturity and depth of these two early works. Whereas the First has a more classical, bubbly quality, the Sixth shows Schubert’s inclination to musical Romanticism. At the same time, these symphonies have much in common: both display humour and joie de vivre, with “carnivalesque” allusions to early nineteenth-century Italian opera, but behind the happy façade lies a deeper layer, full of melancholy and bitterness. In that respect, these works fully capture Schubert’s personal life: that of a social, lively man, plagued by the knowledge of his fatal illness. They are performed on period instruments, transparent, but full of fire.

Image Swan Lake (2CD)
Swan Lake is the first of the three great ballets that Tchaikovsky wrote, and arguably the most famous. The piece is mainly known in the shape it obtained in 1895, when it became a classic in the choreography of Marius Petipa and Lev Ivanov. That “imperial” version strayed from Tchaikovsky’s world premiere score, with several cuts, abridgments and displacements. This high definition recording presents the work as it was heard during the 1877 world premiere performance, highlighting the extraordinary symphonic qualities of Tchaikovksy’s original conception. Swan Lake is performed by the State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Russia “Evgeny Svetlanov” led by its Artistic Director Vladimir Jurowski. Jurowski has recorded extensively for PENTATONE and has received enthusiastic critical acclaim. In July 2017, he signed a long-term, multi-album agreement with PENTATONE including a new complete cycle of the symphonies of Sergei Prokofiev with the State Academic Symphony Orchestra of Russia “Evgeny Svetlanov”. Other releases by Jurowski for PENTATONE include violin concertos by Britten and Hindemith with Arabella Steinbacher, and tone poems by Mahler and Strauss, performed with the Rundfunk-Sinfonieorchester Berlin where he is Chief Conductor and Artistic Director.

Image Influences
On her first PENTATONE album, pianist Tamara Stefanovich presents a highly personal selection of solo works by Bach, Bartók, Ives and Messiaen. Influences shows how these extraordinarily original and idiosyncratic composers let themselves be inspired by the exterior world, thereby demonstrating how authenticity comes from looking outside as well as inside. The repertoire spans from Bach’s embrace of Italian musical elements in his Aria variata alla maniera italiana, Bartók’s incorporation of folk elements in his Improvisations on Hungarian Peasant Songs, and Messiaen’s use of Hindu rhythms in Cantéyodjayâ to the collage of marching bands, sounds of trains and machinery, church hymns, ragtime and blues in Ives’ first piano sonata. In all cases, the exterior influences lead to deeply original and personal sonic galaxies. In that respect, the pieces presented here underline how identity results from a constant dialogue with our surroundings, ever changing and enriching our perceptions of ourselves and the world.
