One of the most famous piano concertos is now released in a complete new production: World famous pianist TZIMON BARTO worked together with no less a person than his pianist colleague and conductor CHRISTOPH ESCHENBACH. Both of them show us a very new and exciting version of the score which we never listend before. After the final concert of this production at the Berliner Philharmonie the audience and the press reviews has been very enthusiastic.
The young Dimitri Maslennikov – one of Christoph Eschenbachs talent discovery –

In a single Phrase – Quartet Movements between Attempt and Perfection
Arnold Schönberg once remarked on his student Anton von Webern that he was able to “express an entire novel with a single gesture”. In doing so, the composer arrived at the maximal condensation of expression through small dimensioned designs.
Hugo Wolf composed his one-movement serenade for string quartet within three days and Giacomo Puccini wrote a melancholic quartet movement in C sharp minor in a single night as he claimed himself. With this interesting Edition of musical fragments and Quartet Movements which found their ways to the concert schedules worldwide, the young SIGNUM QUARTET presents his second album after the successful release of the recording of String Quartets by Ludwig Thuille (Capriccio C5049). Again with a wide range dynamic and fresh performance.

The present first recordings do not document the Schreker of „impressionistic" intoxication with colour and passionate Italianate cantilenas as in Die Gezeichneten. Here it is a matter of the „unknown Schreker" – the corner-points,
35 years apart, of his output, the whence and whither of a composer who already in his twenties saw himself branded as „begetter of musical narcotics" and whose name still evoked, for many people, „art nouveau of some kind".
Franz Schreker's last completed dramatic composition is the melodrama Das
Weib des Intaphernes
, composed on a ballad by Eduard Stucken in 1932/33 in Estoril, near Lisbon, and in Berlin; Once more the sure hand of the dramatist in masterly control of his means is shown; with a few concise motives he creates cohesion of form, and can employ a simple triadic motive as certainly as an inscrutably rugged atonal fugato.
