"One of a small handful of truly international wind players, Martin Fröst mesmerizes audiences throughout the world, whether performing concertos especially written for him or core repertoire such as the pieces presented here. Fröst{u2019}s first recording of the Concerto in A major is one of the best-selling discs in BIS{u2019} history. Returning to this glorious work, he now also directs the Deutsche Kammerphilharmonie Bremen and has assembled a truly star-studded group of friends for the coupling works."--Publisher's description

Harold en Italie ; La mort de Cléopâtre by Hector Berlioz( )

2 editions published in 2014 in French and held by 81 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Any Berlioz recording by Valery Gergiev promises to be an exciting tour de force, but considering that this disc is also an audiophile recording of the London Symphony Orchestra in concert, it promises even more. There are few composers more dynamic and startling in originality than Berlioz, and his "Harold en Italie" is one of the most innovative works in the Romantic repertoire: part symphonic poem avant la lettre, based on Lord Byron's poem, Childe Harold's Pilgrimage; part autobiographical symphony, in the manner of its immediate predecessor, the "Symphonie fantastique"; and part concerto, for the viola soloist. Gergiev maintains a strong tension from the outset, and paces "Harold en Italie" with an urgency and emotional fire that are rare, and violist Antoine Tamestit brings a dramatic flair to his part, in contrast with more purely lyrical interpretations that tend toward the introspective. In the cantata, "La mort de Cléopâtre," mezzo-soprano Karen Cargill projects a similar kind of intensity and presence, and the lyricism and passion of the music is heightened in her collaboration with Gergiev and the LSO. The sound of this hybrid SACD is vivid and close-up, so every detail of the performances can be heard, as well as some incidental noises in the live setting

Piano quartets by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Recording )

10 editions published in 2010 in Undetermined and No Linguistic content and held by 55 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a wonderful recording of two indispensable masterpieces. By adding the viola, which he loved to play, to the popular piano trio, Mozart became "the father of the piano quartet" with these very different works, the first somber and dramatic, though it ends with a sprightly finale, the second lyrical and serene. Mozart treats all the instruments as equals, but primarily alternates piano and strings, bringing them together in climactic moments. This means that the musicians must inwardly participate in the music-making during long rests to create continuity and seamless give-and-take, a subtle problem these performers solve admirably. These four superb soloists have a rapport so strong that thoughts and feelings seem to flow between them in an unbroken current. Their playing is technically impeccable; their phrasing and style are unanimous, elegant, and flexible; their tone, though each player has a different one, is beautiful and expressive; the piano sings ravishingly; Ax adds discreet, improvisatory embellishments, especially in repeats. They bring out all of Mozart's mercurial moods, the light and shadow, repose and passion, joy and sorrow. --Edith Eisler
