Violin concertos 1 & 5 ; Sinfonia concertante K364 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

4 editions published in 2015 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 122 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following the success of her discs of Romantic and Late Romantic repertoire, Vilde Frang has recorded Mozart's Concertos Nos. 1 and 5 'Turkish' and the Sinfonia Concertante K364, enabling music lovers to hear the "prodigiously gifted" Norwegian violinist perform Classical repertoire on disc for the first time. The impetus for this album was a 2012 orchestral tour of Asia conducted by Jonathan Cohen in which Vilde performed Mozart's Violin Concerto No. 5. The vibrancy of their musical collaboration was something both artists were keen to repeat and commit to disc. Jonathan's Cohen's chamber orchestra, Arcangelo, proved the ideal partner, joined by violist Maxim Rysanov in the Sinfonia Concertante

Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto showcases award-winning Norwegian violinist Vilde Frang's hugely assured virtuosity, but far from mere empty fireworks, she exercises her technical facility as a means to cut to the emotional core of the work. The end result is a truly remarkable recording of the warhorse work? jaw-droppingly accomplished playing fused with a depth of expression that belies heryoung age

Violin concertos nos. 1 & 5 by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( Recording )

6 editions published in 2015 in 3 languages and held by 13 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Die Norwegerin .... wird seit Jahren beängstigend hoch gehandelt und hat dabei nicht den Kopf verloren, wohl aber ihr Herz. An Mozart nämlich, bei dem sie das Zerbrechliche eher entdeckt als andere. Ganz vorsichtig geht sie um mit ein paar abwartenden Tönen im Takt 115 des Allegro, wo Zimmermann energisch weiterbraust wie im Motorboot. Ihr Einsatz im Adagio ist ein Nachdenken auf drei Tönen, als hätte sie alle Zeit der Welt. Man könnte es fast ein bisschen zu romantisch finden, aber da ist mehr, und da ist außerdem das Orchester" (zeit.de). "Die junge norwegische Geigerin Vilde Frang hat sich dafür mit dem Bratschisten Maxim Rysanov und dem exzellenten Ensemble Arcangelo zusammengetan. Und sie beweist mit dieser eindrucksvollen Aufnahme, dass sie mit ihren 28 Jahren bereits jetzt zu den größten Geigern der Gegenwart zählt. Im Gegensatz zu Mozart hat sie während ihrer Studienjahre in München sehr viel geübt, und ihr "schöner, reiner Ton"verdient sicherlich ebenso viel Lob wie der des jungen Komponisten. Als Teenager durfte sie Anne Sophie Mutter vorspielen - ganz allein in der ansonsten menschenleeren Philharmonie im Münchner Gasteig. Anne Sophie Mutter hat daraufhin die junge Norwegerin mit Nachdruck gefördert. Und doch hat Vilde Frang einen ganz persönlichen Ton gefunden, sie spielt leichter und auch etwas schlichter als ihr großes Vorbild, aber nicht weniger souverän und phantasievoll im Einsatz der virtuosen Möglichkeiten ihres Instruments. So findet Vilde Frang zu einer wunderbaren Balance aus Emotion und Intelligenz. Ihr Spiel ist in jedem Ton durchdacht, wirkt dabei aber immer absolut natürlich, etwa wenn sie das Frage- und Antwortspiel von Mozarts Melodien mit kontrastierenden Klangfarben gestaltet" (br.de)

Sol Gabetta at Solsberg Festival( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Sol Gabetta, Baïba Skride, Vilde Frang, Ula Ulijona, Bertrand Chamayou and Frank Braley gather again at the Solsberg Festival in 2012 to perform works by Schubert and Beethoven. The Solsberg Festival was founded in 2006 by Argentinian cellist Sol Gabetta who is now its Artistic Director. In an exceptional site – the Baroque church St. Martin in Rheinfelden and the Olsberg's cloister – the festival gathers once a year some of the best contemporary talents in the world in a friendly atmosphere with exceptional concerts. In 2012, the 7th edition of the festival welcomes choice musicians alongside Sol Gabetta: violinists Baïba Skride (1st prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition in 2001) and Vilde Frang (who made her debuts at the Lucerne Festival under Bernard Haitink's baton), violist Ula Ulijona (1st prize at the Primrose International Viola Competition and soloist of the Kremerata Baltica Chamber Orchestra of Baltic countries). They are joined by pianists Bertrand Chamayou (who was awarded in 2012 a Victoire de la Musique classique in the category Instrumental Soloist of the Year) and Frank Braley (Premier Grand Prix and Prix du Public at the Queen Elisabeth Competition in 1991 aged only 22). For the opening of this second concert, they perform Franz Schubert's Allegro in A Minor, D. 947 that was afterwards subtitled by its publisher "Lebensstürme". With its mix of dramatic accents to more lyrical themes, this work reflects a creative renewal in the composer's life, who surpasses the other composers of his time. Then the Piano Trio No. 2 in E-flat Major, D. 929 is one of the latest works Schubert composed. Several themes appear, successively highlighted by the solos of the cello, the piano and the violin, as the composer used ingenious countermelodies. The concert ends with the Piano Trio No. 4 in B-flat Major, Op. 11 that Beethoven dedicated to Maria Whilhelmine von Thun, his protector in Vienna.

At the Solsberg Festival in 2012, the star of cello Sol Gabetta is accompanied by Baïba Skride, Vilde Frang, Ula Uljiona, Bertrand Chamayou and Frank Braley to perform works by Franck and Debussy. The Solsberg Festival was founded in 2006 by Argentinian cellist Sol Gabetta who is now its Artistic Director. In an exceptional site – the Baroque church St. Martin in Rheinfelden and the Olsberg's cloister – the festival gathers once a year some of the best contemporary talents in the world in a friendly atmosphere with exceptional concerts. In 2012, the 7th edition of the festival welcomes choice musicians alongside Sol Gabetta: violinists Baïba Skride (1st prize at the Queen Elisabeth Competition in 2001) and Vilde Frang (who made her debuts at the Lucerne Festival under Bernard Haitink's baton), violist Ula Ulijona (1st prize at the Primrose International Viola Competition and soloist of the Kremerata Baltica Chamber Orchestra of Baltic countries). They are joined by pianists Bertrand Chamayou (who was awarded in 2012 a Victoire de la Musique classique in the category Instrumental Soloist of the Year) and Frank Braley (Premier Grand Prix and Prix du Public at the Queen Elisabeth Competition in 1991 aged only 22). The concert opens with a major work of national chamber music, the Quintet for Piano and Strings in F Minor composed by César Franck in 1879 and dedicated to Camille Saint-Saëns. With this quintet, César Franck led the style to its height, which was afterwards brilliantly taken again by great composers among whom Ernest Chausson, Gabriel Fauré and Gabriel Pierné. The second part of this concert is devoted to the Épigraphes antiques, a cycle of six piano pieces for four hands, composed in 1914 by Claude Debussy. Indeed Debussy took back some elements of an unique score he had composed in 1901 to accompany his friend Pierre Louÿs, the Songs of Bilitis. These "musical miniatures" reflect influences of Antiquity, not only according to the themes, the sounds, but also according to their shape reminding us of symmetrical structures that characterized art works in ancient Greece.

Antonín Dvořák in Verbier( Visual )

1 edition published in 2014 and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

An exceptional night with a myriad of great musicians, performing chamber music together! Every summer, the Verbier Festival gathers artists of international fame and the rising stars of their instruments. This concert is a perfect example of this tradition: the Verbier Festival invites here Renaud and Gautier Capuçon, Yuri Bashmet, Vilde Frang and Daniil Trifonov to perform Dvorak's quintet for piano and strings. Absolute symbol of the Slavic soul, Dvorák approaches a style where the popular influences and folk outlines of his phrases express a particular music. In the Central Europe and in the Czech country, where folk songs are the expression of a social struggle against the oppression, the work of Dvorák resonates strongly between popular music and classical music
