Image Symphonies Nos. 1, 3 & 4
Royal Flemish Philharmonic / Philippe Herreweghe

Although Franz Schubert's earliest symphonies are sometimes considered youthful works of a composer still learning his trade, they nonetheless attest to a genius of symphonic construction such as few musicians could boast at, respectively, 16 (Symphony No. 1), 18 (Symphony No. 3) or 19 years of age (Symphony No. 4).

Despite these promising beginnings, Schubert would be only sporadically published during his lifetime - approximately one tenth of his total output and primarily his lieder -, and his symphonic works would not be printed until sixty years after his death.

Here, Philippe Herreweghe and the Royal Flemish Philharmonic pay a superb tribute to these works of the composer that are less well known and rarely recorded, in interpretations of refinement, precision and sensitivity.

Image Philippe Herreweghe: A Conversation with Camille D
In a series of interviews with Camille De Rijck, Philippe Herreweghe sums up his musical trajectory by offering the reader his reflections, intermingling musical and personal considerations. A selection of archive illustrations to delight the eyes and an updated biography complete the contents of the book, which is published in four languages (English, French, German and Dutch). A five-disc compilation of extracts chosen and discussed by the conductor himself provides an musical counterpoint to the text. The selection enables you to explore a whole life through the finest works of such composers as Lassus, Schein, Bach, Beethoven, Mahler, Dvorák and Stravinsky. Thanks to the longstanding close collaboration between Philippe Herreweghe and his favourite ensembles – Collegium Vocale Gent, the Orchestre des ChampsÉlysées and the Royal Flemish Philharmonic – this anthology of his most remarkable interpretations is also an opportunity to experience at leisure the extraordinary palette of colours and timbres that he invariably succeeds in obtaining from them, and transports us to the very heart of the Flemish conductor’s inner world. This magnificent object is released to mark Philippe Herreweghe’s seventieth birthday!

Image Symphony No. 4; Alto Rhapsody; Schicksalslied
Although the symphony was the most prestigious instrumental genre of his time, Brahms avoided it for many years. In 1872, when he was already more than forty years old and was widely acknowledged for his chamber and choral music, he observed: ‘I will never write a symphony! You can’t imagine what it’s like to hear a giant treading behind you.’ The giant was of course Beethoven, at once an inspiration and a source of intimidation for composers of Brahms’s generation. Fortunately, however, he went back on his promise a few years later with his First Symphony, followed by three more composed between 1876 and 1885. The two works presented here are the Second Symphony, sometimes sombre, sometimes radiant, and the Fourth, a genuine masterpiece of the genre. This disc, recorded on period instruments under the masterly direction of Philippe Herreweghe, is released to coincide with a double anniversary: as a prelude to the Flemish conductor’s seventieth birthday, it also celebrates the twenty-fifth year of existence of one of his favourite ensembles: the Orchestre des Champs-Élysées.

Responsoria 1611
[Responsoria et alia ad Officium Hebdomadae Sanctae spectantia (Feria Quinta, Feria Sexta, Sabbato Sancto)]

Collegium Vocale Gent
Philippe Herreweghe, conductor

The second project of Collegium Vocale Gent and Philippe Herreweghe for Phi to focus on Renaissance music is devoted to one of the most remarkable of all composers: Carlo Gesualdo. Both his life, characterised by extravagant and excessive behaviour, and his compositions left their mark on the history of music. Although best known for his secular music, he also wrote an almost equivalent number of sacred works that demonstrate his fervent faith. The Tenebrae Responsories comprise a set of pieces for Holy Week, in all twenty-seven motets for six voices, a psalm, and a hymn, published under his own supervision in 1611. As in his madrigals, the music is underpinned by many unexpected chromatic variations that create expressive images evoking tears, the earthquake, the despair of Christ on the cross, etc. The acoustics of the church of the village of Asciano in Tuscany, where the programme was recorded in 2011, create the perfect soundscape for this music.

Philippe Herreweghe, conductor


Impressed by the Handel works that he heard in London, Haydn felt the need to compose oratorios. First came Die Schopfung (The Creation) Which met with resounding success; then Baron Gottfried van Swieten proposed to Haydn an arrangement of James Thompson's poem 'The Seasons'. Initially, Hadyn was little attracted by the text, which deviates from the classic oratorio based on a religious text, but subsequently let himself be convinced. The result, for three soloists, chorus and an orchestra, is a vast pictorial fresco of Nature that describes landscapes and the feelings that they arouse. For the first time, Philippe Herreweghe gives us his own vision of an oratorium by Haydn. This recording is also the first in a Haydn cycle with Philippe Herreweghe for Phi, of which the next project is... Die Schopfung!

Image Last Symphonies (The)
Orchestre des Champs-Elysées, Philippe Herreweghe

Written one after the other in the space of just three months and with unprecedented energy, Mozart's last three symphonies carry within them the aesthetic ideal of their composer, touched by a grace that is already pre-Romantic, and thus form an exemplary musical testament. The Orchestre des Champs-Élysées, a pioneering collective among period-instrument orchestras, reveals a richness, a modernity, a visionary complexity that prepares the way for the Beethovenian revolution.

The approach of the orchestra founded and conducted by Philippe Herreweghe is to explore in depth the sonority and the motor rhythms of the symphonic writing of a Mozart here at the height of his powers.

To record this Mozart trilogy is a bold undertaking for any musician, and always an extraordinary event for the public!

Collegium Vocale Gent & Orchestre des Champs-Élysées / Philippe Herreweghe

After his years in London and the discovery of Handel's Messiah, which had profoundly moved him, Joseph Haydn embarked on writing a large-scale religious work.

For this very devout composer, this veritable act of faith would torment him for two years and from it would come an oratorio of penetrating intensity.

After enjoying immediate success in Vienna, Die Schöpfung (The Creation) conquered the whole of Europe in less than a year.

With this work, a few months after the release of Die Jahreszeiten (The Seasons), Philippe Herreweghe continues the exploration of Haydn's vocal works, accompanied by soloists Christina Landshamer, Maximilian Schmitt and Rudolf Rosen.

Thanks to the complicity of two of his favourite ensembles - the Collegium Vocale Gent and the Orchestre des Champs-Élysées - and the extraordinary palette of colours and timbres that he succeeds in inspiring once again, he transports us with refinement and intelligence into the Viennese master's inner universe.

Image Symphonies Nos. 2 & 5
"After the success of his recordings of Symphonies nos. 1, 3 and 4, released on the Phi label in 2016, Philippe Herreweghe offers us the next instalment of Schubert’s orchestral output with the Royal Flemish Philharmonic: the Symphony no.2 D. 125 and Symphony no.5 D. 485 – both in B flat major. Like those on the previous disc, these works from his youth – written when the Viennese composer was not yet twenty years old – mark the promising beginnings of an already highly accomplished composer. They demonstrate finesse of large-scale symphonic construction, even though the Fifth is the least heavily scored of the cycle – it is the only one that does not call for clarinets, trumpets and timpani. The Second, with its light character, requires just as much subtlety from the orchestra – which Philippe Herreweghe and the Philharmonic provide with their accurate and intelligent playing throughout this album. A new homage from the Belgian conductor to the genius of the Viennese composer, whose later symphonies are better-known to us, while his earlier works are – quite unfairly - not played or recorded enough!"

Maude Gratton, organ


The talented organist and harpsichordist Maude Gratton is an artist constantly seeking perfection. A graduate of the Paris Conservatoire, she trained with such great masters as Pierre Hantaï (harpsichord) and Louis Robilliard (organ), as well as with Olivier Baumont, Blandine Rannou, Kenneth Weiss, Michel Bouvard, Olivier Latry, and Olivier Trachier. It was quite natural that Philippe Herreweghe, concerned with promoting the talent of promising young musicians, should invite her to record an album in the ‘Amis de Phi’ (Friends of Phi) collection. On this disc, the young organist has chosen an ideal programme for demonstrating her art, proposing an intelligent panorama of organ works by Johann Sebastian Bach: between the Preludes and Fugues in E minor and E flat major, BWV 548 and 552, Jesus Christus, unser Heiland, BWV 665, the Canonic Variations on ‘Vom Himmel hoch’, BWV 769, and the Organ Sonata no. 4, BWV 528, come and discover well-known and less well-known pieces by the Kantor of Leipzig.

The Collegium Vocale Gent,the Royal Flemish Philharmonic and Philippe Herreweghe join forces once again for a monument of the sacred choral repertoire: Antonin Dvorak's Requiem,Op.89.This work, dating from 1890, is one of those that marked a new phase in the composer's musical creation, in which he recognized himself as much a poet as well as a musician.In addition,this reveals the veritable nature of a composer without constraint, probably being neither a commission nor an occasional work.Philippe Herreweghe offers us an interpretation as dense and concentrated as the writing of this masterpiece requires.

After a 30 year-long partnership with harmonia mundi, Philippe Herreweghe has founded his own label, PHI, coproduced with Outhere. For his first CD, he presents Mahler's Fourth Symphony.

Under the leadership of Philippe Herreweghe, l'Orchestre des Champs-Élysées has made a feature of modern interpretations, in a far from standard manner, on period instruments.

Beyond the sumptuous colours of l'Orchestre des Champs-Élysées, beyond the meticulous work on the musical score, this recording confirms Herreweghe's intimacy with the world of the Viennese composers of the turn of the century.

Collegium Vocale Gent, Royal Flemish Philharmonic / Philippe Herreweghe

Threni (1957-58) is his longest, most ambitious and complex dodecaphonic score, and probably one of its summits. A work like the Requiem Canticles (1966) goes even further in this direction: the composer’s last masterpiece, it seems to summarise in itself the evolution of an entire lifetime, combining elements from the different stylistic periods that punctuated his career – whilst marking a highpoint in the spiritual quest that became increasingly important in Stravinsky’s life. In this major album, Philippe Herreweghe reveals with conviction his love for the composer’s music, and under his sure, inspired direction, the Collegium Vocale Gent and the Royal Flemish Philharmonic reveal their pure poetry.

For the third time on the Phi label, Philippe Herreweghe gives us the opportunity to (re)discover three cantatas by Johann Sebastian Bach – Nimm von uns, Herr, du treuer Gott, BWV 101, Ihr werdet weinen und heulen, BWV 103 and Mache dich, mein Geist, bereit, BWV 115. After two albums of cantatas written during the composer’s first year in Leipzig (LPH006 and LPH012), the Belgian conductor and his Collegium Vocale Gent, orchestra and choir, will be performing three cantatas he composed during his second year as Kantor at St Thomas’s. The choir and vocal soloists are once again challenged to produce performances of subtlety and refined virtuosity, and the instrumentarium is as rich and colourful as those heard previously in this series.

Image Officium Defunctorum
Collegium Vocale Gent / Philippe Herreweghe

Tomás Luis de Victoria is definitely one of the most important composers in the music history of Spain. His masterpiece is the 'Officium Defunctorum', published in Madrid in 1605. In this requiem - written for the funeral of Maria of Austria, daughter of Emperor Charles V - the composer reached a mystical intensity of expression.

Philippe Herreweghe just loves composers "who know how to build entire worlds with sounds, recognizable from the first notes, profound and full of richness". For him Tomás Luis de Victoria is one of them, "one of the greatest musical minds ever".

So it was an obvious choice for Philippe Herreweghe to make a recording of this heavenly 'Officium Defunctorum'. And... of course Collegium Vocale Gent - with its cristal clear sound - is the perfect instrument to perform such music. Looking forward to the first renaissance project of Philippe Herreweghe and Collegium Vocale Gent for the label Phi!

Collegium Vocale Gent, Orchestre des Champs-Elysées / Philippe Herreweghe

For his 3rd album on Phi, his new label published by the group Outhere, Philippe Herreweghe has brought together a splendid set of artists in the Lutoslawski hall in Warsaw. Ann Hallenberg, whose voice won over the public of some of the world's most prestigious concert halls, takes on the Rhapsody for contralto solo and men's chorus by Brahms while the rest of the programme leads the listener through his essential works for chorus and orchestra. Herreweghe's long-time affinity with the composer of A German Requiem has enabled him to provide a coherent and personal vision of those musical pages in which Brahms gave free course to his most intimate thoughts.

Collegium Vocale Gent is joined in this endeavour by the members of the Accademia Chigiana of Sienna with whom it formed a European ensemble that was officially recognised as Cultural Ambassador of the European Union just a few months ago. Together with the Orchestre des Champs-Elysées and its authentic instrumentarium, this great choir interprets the Burial Song, the Song of Destiny, the Song of the Fates and the motet Warum ist das Licht gegeben. A great moment for all admirers of Brahms and fans of choral singing at its very best!

Image String Quartet No. 13 & Quintet for piano & Winds
The pairing of the two works on this album is unique in that one comes from the dawn, the other from the dusk of Ludwig van Beethoven’s career. Indeed, whereas the composer wrote the Quintet for winds and piano, Op. 16 when he was only 26- the talented young man also excelled as a successful pianist- he did not finish his String Quartet Op. 130 until a year before his death. The Edding quartet proposes here the original version of the work, with the Grosse Fuge, op.130, as final. The direct comparison of these two works on the same disc intelligently sheds light on the fantastic distance the composer covered between these two points in time. Two years after their successful Schubert album, which was warmly received by the press and public, the Edding Quartet and Northernlight felicitously join together once again on the same album to give new readings of these masterpieces of the chamber music repertoire. Having become major interpreters of the Classical and Romantic repertoires, the two ensembles offer expert performances, refined and precise, of two of the German composer’s finest scores.

Image O dolce mio tesoro
A personality has who provoked considerable controversy over the centuries, Carlo Gesualdo (1566- 1613), aristocrat, musician and murderer of his first wife, is no less a composer whose music is marked by subtlety and refinement. His innovative Sixth Book of Madrigals, written two years before his death, exploits all harmonic, chromatic, and textural possibilities to meet the texts’ expressive requirements and proves to be a veritable masterpiece of the genre. After a first release devoted to the Italian composer’s sacred works, the Tenebrae Responsoria, Philippe Herreweghe and his Collegium Vocale Gent invite us to (re)discover his secular music for the 450th anniversary of his birth. In masterful fashion, they propose a delicate, expressive reading of this complex music, doing justice to the modernity of the musical language of the Prince of Venosa. The acoustics of the church in the little Tuscan village of Asciano, where the programme was recorded in 2015, provides an ideal sound setting for this music.

To launch Philippe Herreweghe’s birthday year, we turn the spotlight once more on one of his most accomplished recordings: Bach’s Motets BWV 225-230. Recorded in 2011 in the splendid acoustics of the Jesus-Christus-Kirche in Berlin, this interpretation is accompanied by period instruments and is the result of intense reflection concerning the performing forces: Philippe Herreweghe sometimes uses a small number of singers per part, sometimes a larger group, according to the needs of the motet in question. He sees these pieces in terms of continuous research, in which ‘several approaches are possible and even necessary if one wishes to make this marvellous music sound its best, and especially for a recording’. For the greater pleasure of the eyes and ears of turntable lovers, these masterpieces by the Kantor of Leipzig now appear in a novel incarnation, subtly combining the label’s new and modern graphic line with the timeless style of the vinyl format.

Over the past 40 years Philippe Herreweghe has been working with some extraordinary soloists with whom he has had very fertile and stimulating dialogues, both musically and personally. Philippe Herreweghe: "It seems important to give these musicians the opportunity to express themselves on the label PHI in works they are particularly fond of." This is the case of the present recording. Christine Busch, leader of the orchestra of Collegium Vocale Gent, recorded the Sonatas & Partitas for solo violin by J. S. Bach - a work she admires, and she has been playing since her childhood. Philippe Herreweghe: "Christine Busch inspires by her technical perfection, her strength, her humility, her sense for poetry, as well as by her qualities needed to serve the greatest of all composer."
