With this ongoing series, Musica Omnia pays homage to the great composers of the nineteenth century, by presenting their works in new, historically-aware performances featuring some of the leading artists of our time. The music of such familiar composers as Beethoven, Schubert, Mendelssohn and Schumann is complemented by the works of less commonly heard composers such as Sigismond Thalberg, Clara Schumann, Fanny Mendelssohn, Gabriel Fauré and many others. Such artists as Penelope Crawford, Max van Egmond, Jaap Schröder, Kenneth Slowik, Emlyn Ngai, Sally Pinkas, Steve Larson and Mark Fraser and Enid Sutherland are featured both in solo repertoire and as members of ensembles such as the Adaskin String Trio, The Atlantis Trio & Ensemble (Earlier Recordings), Smithsonian Chamber Players and The Axelrod Quartet. Enhancing each release is an informative booklet featuring major essays by such leading writers as Susan Youens, Larry Todd, John Daverio,  Rufus Hallmark and Robert Mealy.

Franz Schubert

 

Winterreise, D.911

 

Max van Egmond (baritone) & Penelope Crawford (fortepiano)

 

This is, by general consent, the greatest of all Lieder cycles, and the second that Schubert based on Müller’s poems. Max van Egmond and Penelope Crawford here present a profoundly moving performance, enhanced by the use of an original 1835 fortepiano by the great Viennese maker, Conrad Graf.

FELIX MENDELSSOHN

 

THE YOUNG FELIX MENDELSSOHN

 

The Atlantis Ensemble - Jaap Schröder

 

Conventional wisdom has it that Felix Mendelssohn came into his own as a composer at the age of 16 in 1825, with the composition of his string Octet and the Overture to “A Midsummer Night’s Dream”. This release, the final volume of the Atlantis Ensemble’s Mendelssohn 2009 project, reveals the lesser-known riches among the works written by young Felix in the years immediately preceding, 1822-1824. Jaap Schröder and his colleagues take us directly into the prosperous Mendelssohn household of the 1820s, a remarkable environment that nurtured young Felix, the prodigy.

Franz Schubert (1797-1827)

 

Franz Schubert - Piano Trios, Op. 99 & 100

 

The Atlantis Ensemble - Penelope Crawford (fortepiano), Jaap Schröder (violin), Enid Sutherland (cello)

 

Schubert’s two piano trios are among the crowning achievements of early 19th century chamber music. They date from the final two years of the composer’s short life and inspired similar compositions for the same ensemble by Mendelssohn and Schumann. In this newly re-mastered release of their celebrated recording, the Atlantis Trio provides benchmark performances on instruments of the period.

Felix Mendelssohn and Carl Friedrich Zelter

 

Des Madchens Klage - Mendelssohn & Zelter Lieder

 

Andrea Folan (soprano); Tom Beghin (fortepiano)

 

Carl Friedrich Zelter (1758-1832) was one of the most important formative influences on his young protégé, Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847), exemplified by his handing the young prodigy the responsibility for reviving Bach’s St. Matthew Passion in 1829 – a watershed event. Both Zelter and Mendelssohn added greatly to the Lieder repertoire, setting texts by the great poets of the day. Soprano Andrea Folan and fortepianist Tom Beghin provide a comprehensive view of their world of song.

Ludwig van Beethoven

 

Beethoven: The Last Piano Sonatas

 

Penelope Crawford, fortepiano

 

Beethoven’s piano sonatas op. 109-111 represent the composer’s farewell to a genre that was transformed by his thirty-two contributions to it, culminating in the otherworldly C minor sonata, op. 111. Fortepianist Penelope Crawford presents these three profound works with unique insight and sympathy, enhanced by her use of a magnificent original fortepiano, similar to one owned by Beethoven, by the great Viennese maker, Conrad Graf.

Robert Schumann & Sigismond Thalberg

 

Robert Schumann: Piano Quartet in E-Flat Major, Op. 47 Sigismond Thalberg: Piano Trio in A Major, Op. 69

 

The Atlantis Trio & Ensemble

 

Robert Schumann’s Piano Quartet, like its companion work, the Piano Quintet, was created in 1842, an astonishingly productive year devoted to chamber music. A more classically oriented piece than its sister-work, the quartet combines transparency with Romantic passion and emotional intensity. The CD is completed with the rarely heard A-Major Trio of Liszt’s rival, Sigismond Thalberg. The members of the Atlantis Trio & Ensemble perform both works with their usual mastery.

Franz Schubert (1797 -1828)

 

Schubert in Skálholt I

 

Skálholt String Quartet Jaap Schröder, Rut Ingólfsdóttir, violins Svava Bernharðsdóttir, viola Sigurður Halldórsson, cello *Bruno Cocset, 2nd cello

 

In 1820 Schubert began to create a new voice in the realm of the string quartet, with the unfinished Quartettsatz (Quartet movement) in C minor, D. 703. Just eight years later he completed his chamber masterpiece: the sublime String Quintet in C major, D. 956. Within six weeks of offering the work to a publisher he was dead. This CD inaugurates a four-volume survey of Schubert’s later quartets and quintet, performed by the Skálholt Quartet of Iceland, led by legendary Dutch violinist, Jaap Schröder.
