For her debut album on the yellow label Camille has chosen music full of youthful invention - uplifting and positive. She brings her own sensitive interpretation to the French Romantic works for cello and orchestra by Saint-Saëns and Offenbach, including the former's First Cello Concerto, a masterpiece of its genre, and a delightful excerpt from the latter's Harmonies des bois “Les Larmes de Jacqueline”. The album was recorded with the Orchestre National de Lille and Alexandre Bloch, and also includes guest appearances by tenor Rolando Villazón and violinist Nemanja Radulović

Concerto Campestre, Pedro Castro

João de Sousa Carvalho was one of the foremost Portuguese composers of his generation. L'Angelica was his first opportunity to write a 'courtly serenata or drama', the first of ten such works, after being appointed music master to the Portuguese royal family at the court of Queen Maria I (1734-1816). Setting a libretto by the great Italian poet Metastasio, Carvalho brings out every ounce of dramatic intensity in his richly expressive and captivating score, the story of how the beautiful and intelligent Angelica uses and misuses her seductive charms to fool the noble Orlando into thinking she loves him, only to abandon him and run away with Medoro instead.

Composers

Carvalho, João de Sousa (1742-98)

Commotio, Matthew Berry, Bob Chilcott

Bob Chilcott is one of Britain's most popular and respected composers and his choral music is performed worldwide. He has always embraced a broad stylistic palette and his writing for voice combined with jazz instrumentation gives these works a sense of vitality and energy. Performed by leading jazz soloists and Commotio, the distinguished promoters of contemporary repertoire, this sequence of brilliant villanelles, folk song arrangements and witty settings reveals once again the breadth of Chilcott's musical imagination. Chilcott has enjoyed a lifelong association with choral music, as a composer, conductor, and singer. He was a chorister and choral scholar in the choir of King's College, Cambridge and for twelve years was a member of the vocal group The King's Singers. In 1997 he became a full time composer. A Little Jazz Mass, Requiem, and St. John Passion are among a number of works from his prolific output which are performed worldwide. He has written large-scale works, including The Angry Planet, community-based projects, pieces for children, and a significant amount of music for the church. In 2017 Chilcott was awarded an Honorary Fellowship of The Royal School of Church Music.

Carols by Bob Chilcott

Commotio, Matthew Berry

Presto Recording of the Week 9th December 2013

Bob Chilcott has been described by The Observer as 'a contemporary hero of British Choral Music', and his music is commissioned and sung by choirs throughout the world. His Christmas pieces, a number of which are heard here in première recordings, reveal his enthusiasm for recently written texts, to which he responds with acute verbal sensitivity.

Commotio is one of the UK's foremost chamber choirs, hailing from Oxford, where they have performed choral music of the 20th and 21st centuries since 1999.

The central piece of this album is the previously unrecorded carol sequence On Christmas Night, which shows how his ambition is to infuse new blood alongside more traditional melodies and for each to be enriched by it.

Bob Chilcott is one of Britain's most popular and most-performed composers of choral music, and has enriched the contemporary repertoire immensely.

At the international Chopin competition in 1980, his spectacular failure to win the first price made him famous overnight. Martha Argerich, a member of the jury resigned in protest, claiming 'Pogorelich is a genius!'

These fantastic performances are from 1986 and 1987, when Pogorelich was in his late 20s during his high point of his career. Unitel recorded these works with the artist in venues of particularly striking beauty (Vincenca, Vienna, Turin, Padua).

Comparing him with Horowitz, the New York Times once wrote: 'He was an entire orchestra.'

On her first Warner Classics album pianist Mariam Batsashvili combines solo works by Franz Liszt - a figure of special significance for her - and his contemporary Frédéric Chopin. She left her native Georgia to study at the Franz Liszt Conservatory in Weimar and gained international recognition in 2014 when she won the 10th Franz Liszt Piano Competition. Chopin was just a year older than Liszt and the two became good friends in Paris. The two pianist-composers are, as Batsashvili explains, “very, very different in the way they express themselves, but I can hear in their music that they respected each other greatly.”

Following her recent well-received Michael Nyman recording Chasing Pianos, Valentina now turns her attention to the Romantic Era and the Études of Chopin and Schumann.

Chopin's Études were the first to be seen as true piano works rather than merely studies. Quickly becoming a regular part of the concert repertoire, these are some of the most challenging and evocative works for piano.

Schumann's Symphonic Etudes, believed to be some of the most difficult music for the piano are also featured on this release, including five additional movements restored by Brahms in 1890 after Schumann's death.

No other artist on a major label has offered this exciting combination, totalling 85 minutes of music on one CD.
