J.S. BACH: Die Kunst der Fuge (The Art of the Fugue)

Grand Sextet

The Art of the Fugue

A perfect example of a composer affected by the changes at the end of the 18th century, Anton Eberl’s work illustrates the range of services a musician had to develop, the changes imposed on the image of musicians, and the effect of these influences on the production of music itself.

Soundbrush Records

Probably no single work by Johann Sebastian Bach is surrounded with such an aura of mystery and secrecy as The Art of the Fugue, and here Léon Berben presents a deeply personal interpretation of the masterwork.

This truly is a very special recording.” — Classic FM “The performances by the mixed choir of Edinburgh Cathedral are caught in a wonderfully vivid, close acoustic, so the beautifully elaborate polyphony seems all-embracing.” — The Guardian In his debut recording with the critically acclaimed Edinburgh Choir of St. Mary’s Cathedral, Duncan Ferguson presents this music with forces akin to those of the 16th century—a small group of children and a larger number of men. The singers respond with characteristic freshness, and an emotional authenticity born of the daily round of liturgical performance.

At the high point of German romanticism, one year before his death, Schubert offers a magnificent testament to singers.

Festive brass for the fifth anniversary of the restored Frauenkirche! It has been just five years since a legendary rebuilding project was completed: after years of collecting donations, planning, and building, the recreated Frauenkirche of Dresden was consecrated on October 30, 2005. The project could never have been implemented without its many fundraising initiatives, one of which included a series of concerts held in the shell of the church. Ludwig Güttler was heavily engaged in all these activities, whether as a musician or as an organizer.

Royal Philharmonic Orchestra Yuri Simonov: conductor TCHAIKOVSKY: The Nutcracker • Swan Lake Tchaikovsky’s popular Christmas ballet, presented by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Yuri Simonov. Tchaikovsky was a brilliant and resourceful orchestrator, and probably the greatest writer of ballet music the world has ever known. He wrote the music for The Nutcracker during 1891–92 to a scenario by Marius Petipa. The ballet was first performed in December 1892 at the Maryinsky Theatre, St. Petersburg. Tchaikovsky’s first full-length ballet, Swan Lake, which he worked on in 1875–76 following a scenario by Vladimir Begichev and Vasily Geltzer, was first performed at the Bolshoi Theatre, Moscow in March 1877.
