Daniel Behle is one of the most versatile German tenors, with successes in concerts, recitals and the opera alike: “The basic idea for this programme was originally a homage to the golden 1950s and 1960s and my favourite singer of that time, Fritz Wunderlich. Earlier, not everything used to be bad, and for this reason I find it legitimate to ‘re-animate’ the greatest ‘pearls’ once more and present them to a younger audience.”

»The First Lady of art song« Jürgen Kesting (STERN)
On the 28th of May Mitsuko Shirai celebrated her 70th birthday.
She looks back on a life rich with musical performances: lieder, concerts, and also operas. The Lied duo Mitsuko Shirai • Hartmut Höll have created their own vast library of songs with numerous CD recordings and set new standards with concerts and CDs.
I prize all the recordings of Mistuko Shirai and Hartmut Höll, an historically great partnership in song, and I cherish the memory of the many times I heard them live.
Richard Dyer, Boston Globe

Together with his friend Holst, at the beginning of the 20th century Ralph Vaughan Williams deliberately took the course of liberating himself from ‘German influence’, as they called it, working for original British music. He found models and inspiration in original English folk music.
Most of the works recorded here rank among the less known pieces by the composer, but all of them very clearly reflect the personal hue, the absolutely ‘personal style’ of Ralph Vaughan Williams.

SCHUBERT: SCHWANENGESANG D 957

BO SKOVHUS, baritone
STEFAN VLADAR, piano

C5292 PC: 21 845221052922

20 years ago, at the beginning of his career, the young baritone Bo Skovhus made his first recording of Schubert’s “Schöne Müllerin”. Now, as a famous opera and Lied interpreter he presents a new production of all 3 Schubert Cycles: “I’m very thankful to do this again. As a young men you do not reflect so much what happen. Now, when I’m older, I understand much more about. Especially for this cycle it’s important to have another point of view.” (Bo Skovhus)
Stefan Vladar, the famous Viennese pianist and his partner on the piano, shows us the virtuosity of the piano part in a new different light.

GEORGE ANTHEIL

A Jazz Symphony (Original Version) · Piano Concerto No. 1 · Capital Of The World (Suite) · Archipelago Rhumba
Frank Dupree · Deutsche Staatsphilharmonie Rheinland-Pfalz · Karl-Heinz Steffens

C5309 PC: 21 845221053097

Trade Mark ‘Bad Boy’ – After all the experimental episodes the audience has faced in the field of New Music in recent decades, today the oeuvre of George Antheil will be welcomed with a great deal of sympathy and many a friendly smile. The American knew full well not only how to meet the expectations of an audience ‘prepared to protest’, but also how even to challenge them more overtly. An excellent example is the Jazz Symphony, written in 1925, shortly after George Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue (1924), that bursting the limits of the customary listening experiences of the age in a similar way to e.g. Stravinsky’s Le sacre du printemps of 1913.
