Genre: Classical, Chamber Music | Label: Genuin

Jewish Austrian composer Arnold Schoenberg is associated with the expressionist movement, and is touted as the leader of the Second Viennese School. This new release features Schoenbergs works for string quartet. Even inside this single genre, these works are extraordinarily diverse. The Asasello Quartet has released two previous albums, both of which have been well-reviewed. They are known for their unconventional concerts, and are now making a name for themselves by winning international competitions.

Three important pieces of music, loosely linked by the programmatic theme of "exile" are addressed by Camerata Bern under the direction of Thomas Zehetmair. "Verklärte Nacht" is the second ECM New Series appearance for the distinguished ensemble, who previously recorded music of Sándor Veress for the label. Here, too, Veress's attractive "Transylvanian Dances bridge compositions by two of the great architects of modern music, Arnold Schönberg and Béla Bartók.

Rossini's wonderful comic opera, written when he was only 21, to an Italian libretto by Angelo Anelli, was first performed in Venice on May 22, 1813. Since then audiences have thrilled to such mezzos as Teresa Berganza and Marilyn Horne, in the title role of Isabella, the Italian girl who torments the Pasha into loving his own wife. Here rising star Christianne Stotijn, a BBC Young Generation Artist, moves into new repertoire in this production from Aix-en Provence, 2006, conducted by Rossini specialist Riccarda Frizza and directed by Toni Servillo.

This is a highly original and fitting adaptation with two really excellent leads (the Perrys) and of course, the always excellent Lorraine Hunt (pre-Lieberson) as Elvira. Zerlina is very enjoyable. But, Donna Anna and Don Ottavio disappoint. Donna Anna has some good moments, but is uneven. Ottavio is just poor, well out of his league vocally…S. J McKenna .

Great Conductors of the 20th Century celebrates the so many superstar performers of the last century, conductors who collectively shaped the course of classical music.
Sixty volumes were planned with hopes for even more. Unfortunately it seems that only forty will be issued. Thus, rather than a proud celebration of the full wealth of this keystone of classical art, the truncated result is tinged with regret for what might have been.

…This CD indeed offers a new approach to Antonio Vivaldi with recordings of absolutely rare chamber repertoire. The sonatas are for violoncello solo, but are here performed with a variety of continuo instruments: harpsichord, organ, theorbo, guitar and double bass or violone. The whole is very closely and clearly recorded, giving the listener the opportunity to savour the delightful sound combinations and the intense violoncello playing of Bruno Cocset who, although definitely an early music specialist, here reminds me of Pablo Casals in the way he invests "soul" particularly in the slower movements…
