Ludwig van Beethoven:

Beethoven - organ perspectives

Maria-Magdalena Kaczor

New Super Audio CD Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik 5 Diapason La Clef du Mois Res Musica

« Beethoven ? But did he ever compose anything for the organ? » We do not know the exact answer to this question. Yet the theme of Beethoven’s relationship to the “King of Instruments” has time and again occupied, indeed fascinated musicologists, but above all organists. Why is this? Is it the hardly conceivable idea that the composer only wrote very little for the organ and above all – compared to his work overall – little of note? To supply proof that Beethoven bequeathed us compositions that – if indeed not expressly composed for organ – nonetheless may outstandingly be performed on the instrument of his youthful years for which he like many young people felt considerable fascination: such is the aim of the present recording...

Johann Sebastian Bach:

"a Violino e Cembalo"

Erich Höbarth - Aapo Häkkinen

New 2 CD set Super Audio CD kulturradio rbb KKKKK 5 Diapason

Almost every music lover has probably heard Erich Höbarth play at least once: active as Nikolaus Harnoncourt’s concertmaster, as first violinist of the Quatuor Mosaïques, and in many other positions of musical life, heard in numerous recordings and television broadcasts, he is an almost omnipresent figure. Höbarth unites historical performance practice with the self-assured poise of an individual artistic personality. The Viennese violinist has found here a congenial partner in the young Aapo Häkkinen from Helsinki, who, exactly like Höbarth, can already boast extensive experience as an ensemble director.
