: Archive : Arrivals! (Invert order)
This is the list of all contributions published in this section, in chronological order.

We continue our collaboration with the organist and harpsichordist Simone Stella, this time with the harpsichord works by Dietrich Buxtehude in four releases. These works, recorded only a few times in the history of music, include the vast majority of the Suites for harpsichord and the six Arias with Variations, plus some minor works and five "manualiter" organ works.

Simone Stella enriches his interpretation with a refined and charming phrasing and a gentle touch. The harpsichord is exploited in all its combinations of registers for a more coloristic variety.

We start from the 4th album. Coming soon Nos. 1, 3, 2.

 
By @les (on 14/01/2011 @ 16:53:01, in Arrivals!)

A disc entirely devoted to the legend of ragtime and its birth; includes the first ever published ragtime signed by Tom Turpin, the most famous rags by Scott Joplin and James Scott, the one of George Gershwin and the development towards jazz by Bix Beiderbecke.

The pianist we present is one of the leading experts in this field, the Italian Marco Fumo, who for over thirty years has dedicated himself to researching the interpretation of Afro-American music and ragtime in particular.

The recording was made on a 1952 Bluethner grand piano and captured by Neumann mics (Tube M 147 + TLM 103).

The result is something fascinating!

The third release of Chopin's omnia has now been published. It includes Mazurkas Op. 50, Impromptu No. 3 in G-flat major, Op. 51, Ballade No. 1, 2, 4 and Polonaise Op. 53 'Eroic'.

Roberto Poli's third performance is even more sweet, tragic, thrilling. Enjoy!

 
By @les (on 19/02/2010 @ 18:39:44, in Arrivals!)

In celebration of Chopin's 200th birthday, Roberto Poli continues his venture into the complete works of the composer.

The first couple of albums is already available!

The first album features: Prelude in c sharp minor, Barcarolle Op. 60, Fantasy Op. 49, Ballade Op. 47 and other pieces including some minor and less known pieces by the Polish composer such as Cantabile, Largo, Variations on a theme by Paganini, etc.

"This recording of ChopinÔŅĹs works by the Venetian pianist Roberto Poli couples the familiar with the unknown to reveal a different persona from the romanticsÔŅĹ Chopin, one closely attuned to popular tastes and actively engaged with the political strife of his own day. The collection also emphasizes what the nineteenth century failed to appreciate fully: a master craftsman in full command of large-scale musical forms". (James H. Johnson - Associate Professor of History, Boston University)

The second volume is devoted to some of Chopin's late works: Polonaise Fantaisie in A flat major, Op. 61; Three Mazurkas Op. 59; Sonata in b minor, Op. 58. Recorded Live on March 30, 2008, these works were part of a recital performed at the newly built Rivera Recital Hall at the Rivers School Conservatory in Weston, Massachusetts, USA, where Roberto Poli is Artist in Residence.

Licensing of the complete albums are royalty and DRM-free.

New albums have now been published! These are three albums from the new serie we were talking about some months ago.

Jacopo Salvatori, Piano
C. Debussy: Images I/II and other works...

Debussy as played by young Florentine pianist, Jacopo Salvatori, who is a pupil of famous pianist Maurizio Baglini. His reading reveals a profound poetic sense and a proper timbre research. An album entirely recorded on a Fazioli grand piano inside Fazioli's new recording hall.

The sound of Mr. Simonetto is veiled and highly dynamic (Clair de Lune is even DR 19!) created for hi-fi systems of high precision.

Simone Stella, Harpsichord
G.F. Handel: Suites de pieces (2 albums)

Simone Stella is certainly one of the best young Italian musicians today. His first (double) recording reveals a character that is respectful, accurate and highly musical; in a word, a mature performance. The instrument on which he plays is a brand new harpsichord built by William Horn on the model of historical Flemish harpsichord by Johannes Ruckers (Antwerp 1638).

With this recording, sound engineer, Alessandro Simonetto, has obtained an enthusiastically brilliant and weighted sound. We believe it will be a real joy for your ears.

Sonatori Fiorentini, Baroque ensemble
Il Diavolo & La Follia (Tartini, Corelli and more...)

This is what we can define a demoniac performance even without taking any reference to the subject of the disc. The three Florentine (Sonatori Fiorentini) musicians are certainly at their ease between pulses and dynamic variety while always keeping faith with the text and the tradition of baroque repertoire. Lead violinist Antonio Aiello is a very gifted and refined musician.

Registration, as always, is 100% natural, and leads the listener to a real, thorough enjoyment. One of the best recordings by sound engineer Alessandro Simonetto ever!

Kevin Kastning is the new artist at onclassical.com: guitarist, composer and instruments inventor, he is obtaining large consensus in America for his innovative music and recordings. His four last publications (2006-2009) have been recently included in our catalog: these albums are artistically relevant, curious, and impeccable at a sound level. The art of Kevin Kastning and of musicians Szabů and Siegfried, who flanked him, is innovative, courageous, hypnotic. We directly speak with the artist in a long interview that Alessandro Simonetto, founder of OnClassical, prepared for the OC blog.

A.S. Your music is a sort of improvisation that becomes composition in the act of performing it. We know this is a very original style of composition and performance at the same time. What are the influences of your artistic language? How do your thoughts and your own musical artistic processes impact these compositions?

K.K. Wow, that is a good question. I donít know if I could list all my artistic influences, as I am sure there are some which are there, but unconscious and unknown to me. A few composers that come to mind are Bartok, Elliott Carter, Gesualdo, Tallis, Beethovenís middle and late period string quartets, Ockeghem, the second Viennese school, Schnittke, Shostakovich, Bach, Byrd, Josquin, Praetorius, and even going back as far as Machaut. Bartokís string quartets had a deep and tremendously profound impact on me; both artistically and even spiritually. I also suspect that I have been impacted by artists from the French post-impressionist and the abstract expressionist periods; as well as authors such as Joyce, Proust, and Eliot. Sometimes I think I have a tendency to translate the visual into the audible.


New OnClassical featured Artist: Kevin Kastning.

K.K. find that when Iím involved in observing and really taking in a painting, that I will start to hear things; I look at a Jackson Pollock work and I can hear a lot of sound in that. Architecture can be an influence as well; I am a fan of Frank Gehry, and can hear sound when I look at some of his designs. I have thought of how the architectural concept behind flying buttresses of the Gothic period can translate into compositional form, or become a structural element of a piece. I also find that I am pretty heavily influenced by nature: landscapes; the seeming randomness of things like leaf veining and bird song and avian sounds. Lately I see things like cloud formations, forest growth patterns, river meanders, and certainly snow and snow patterns and wonder how I could translate that directly to score paper. I think that an artistís varied influences and impacting exposures become internally aggregated and sort of transmogrify into a new and unique amalgam; this becomes that artistís voice.

A.S. The collaboration with other musicians such as Siegfried and Sandůr Szabů: how do you discover to have the same "frequencies" / feeling for working at the same project?

K.K. As for the works with Siegfried, he and I began working together in the early 1990s; our album ďBinary FormsĒ was recorded in 1992. In this case, Siegfried knew we were operating on the same artistic frequency. I didnít; he brought it to my attention and asked if we could record together. At first I said no, but Iím glad he pressed me to do it, otherwise it never would have happened. He was right, by the way.


Kevin Kastning and Sandůr Szabů at the Traumwald Studio.

Iíll use Sandůr as a more detailed example; I hope he wonít mind! I met him a few years ago; before we met, I knew who he was, and he had found my music and researched it a bit prior to initially contacting me. We conversed quite a lot and listened to each otherís music. I had a strong sense, both conscious and subconscious, that he and I would artistically fit together like two puzzle pieces. And we did, in fact, on not only an artistic level, but also on a spiritual and deeply inner level, which of course translated to and became evident in the works we jointly create. We just knew that we were operating on, to use your rather accurate term, the same frequency. Sandůr stated the same thing to me, but an interesting difference is that he knew it long before I did! Itís tough to verbalize or explain; it is as if weíd known each other artistically long before we actually met. In fact, Iíve never met anyone with whom I have so much in common artistically. The work he and I do together is the most natural process in which Iíve ever been involved. I know he and I will be working together for a very long time.

Iíve been asked by other artists to collaborate or record with them, but itís really rare that I feel an artistic connection or affinity. There are a couple of other artists with whom Iím either working or with whom Iím going to be recording, though.

A.S. The guitars you, Kevin and the other musicians, play: how do you choose them? Do you personally build them? How and why?

K.K. As for the instruments I play, I initially select them based on their voice and tonal response. I will select a specific instrument for a certain composition or recording based on the requirements of that composition. For several years, I have been internally hearing (and still do) compositions which involved ranges and registers of instruments, specifically of the guitar family, which were not extant. Iím fortunate to be an artist endorser for Santa Cruz Guitars; we have a wonderful working relationship. After weíd established that relationship, I approached them with some instrument design ideas I had which extended the range of the guitar, and asked if they were interested in building them for me. To my surprise, they were not only agreeable, but very excited to do this. The first instrument I designed, and by designed I mean the register and range and tunings, was the DKK, which is an extended baritone guitar; it is tuned to F#, which is one whole step above a bass, and a seventh lower than guitar. For this extended range to be possible, a much longer scale length is required; this in turn requires a very different playing technique. I used the DKK in the studio on an upcoming album with Sandor wherein I had it in bass (E) tuning, and it sounded amazing; just really full and rich. With a lower-pitched instrument, far more string harmonics are available. When using the extended baritones, many of my chord voicings and harmonic structures involve artificial string harmonics; this just is not possible on a standard concert-pitch guitar. From the DKK came the DKK-12, which is a 12-string version of it, also in F# tuning.


The DKK-12 extended baritone Guitar.

I have devised many of my own intervallic tunings for the DKK-12, and I first used these on the album Parallel Crossings. On that album, for some pieces I used concert F# tuning and on others I used my intervallic tunings. To briefly explain: in F# concert tuning on the DKK-12, the string pairs are all in octaves; for example, the first course is F# / f#. In intervallic tunings, the first course might be F# / A. In other words, each course is tuned to a different non-octavic interval. In fact, all my work on Parabola was recorded using entirely my own intervallic tunings; I didnít use any concert tunings whatsoever on the entire record. The intervallic tunings also provide entirely other sets of artificial harmonics; as well as the possibility of 12-note chord voicings.


The KK-Alto guitar in progress.

The newest KK / Santa Cruz instrument is the Alto Guitar. This is a small-bodied, short-scale length 12-string which is pitched a P4 (perfect fourth) above standard guitar concert tuning; concert tuning is E; the alto is in A. Itís a very unusual guitar voice; it sounds like an amalgam of harpsichord and mandolin. I will touring Europe with Sandor this year, and will be taking the alto on the tour with me. So to answer your question: I donít build them, but I did design them.

A.S. Yes, that was my intention...

K.K. And they were built to fill an artistic need: that need being the compositions for instruments which didnít exist. Now they do exist. Interestingly enough, Sandor has a 12-string baritone which was built using the DKK-12 specifications; once he heard mine, he had to have one! He uses this instrument rather virtuosically on Resonance and Parallel Crossings. We have an album in the can which will be released in 2010 wherein we are both using different intervallic tunings on 12-string baritones. The harmonic densities and soundscapes are just huge! There is another new instrument on which Iím working with a wonderful and gifted luthier here in the US named Dan Roberts; it will have a wider range even than the DKK-12. Again, this instrument is conceived out of a need for an even wider ranging instrument for new compositions and their required tunings on which Iím working. The intervallic tunings are born out of a similar process: I have these pieces, or Iím hearing compositions involving harmonic structures that I canít achieve. Unless I re-invent something; first the instrument, and then that instrumentís tuning scenarios.

A.S. When I was teen I improvised at the piano with closed eyes, looking for the best sound for my invention: I defined the music that came out: blind music. Do you think we could define your own language in the same way?

K.K. HmmmÖ I donít know, but thatís another good question. I come from a discipline of composing; Iíve composed over 200 pieces; various string quartets, piano sonatas, trios; mostly chamber works. So even though Iím improvising with Sandor, for example, those improvisations are coming from a place of formal composition. Form is always a consideration, even where there is what might be perceived as a lack of form. I did an album in 2004 with Siegfried entitled Bichromial, and on that album, we focused on a concept I defined as open form compositions: these were improvised pieces with no repeating sections or motifs. The form was not cyclic in any way, but purely linear. So even in the absence of form, there is form. At least in my mind.

A.S. What are the technical equipment used to record (I mean microphones, preamps, and more ...). What is your attitude/mood before and during the recording session?

K.K. I am very, very finicky about and demanding of recording equipment. b>The albums have been recorded using mics by Gefell and Neumann into Millennia preamps. The Millennias are the cleanest and purest preamps Iíve ever used. The Gefell mics are so incredibly detailed that I think they can almost hear your thoughts! Lately Iíve been using some microphones from Peluso; I really like those very much and am excited about them. I have them in the studio, and am already at work on the next couple of albums, and the Peluso mics are being used on those, as well as the Gefells. The Peluso mics are really wonderful. They render the image in such a manner that they provide a wider soundscape, which is difficult to do and something for which Iíve been searching. My recording chain is very pure and direct: microphone to preamp to recorder. In both the recording and the mixing process, no EQ, compression, or limiting is ever used. The only outboard gear used in the mixing and mastering process other than the mixing desk and mastering recorder is the Bricasti M7 reverb unit. This is like having Boston Symphony Hall right in the studio; itís inexplicably beautiful and pure. Every album from Resonance on has been mixed with the M7; in fact, Resonance was the first album ever mixed with the M7. Iíve been really fortunate to work with companies like Bricasti and Peluso, too. For the past year or so, I've been using the Enhanced Audio M600 microphone mounting system. It really adds a measure of clarity, depth, and detail. In fact, "Parabola" was recorded using the M600 on the mics.


Kevin Kastning during a recording session.

As for the mood before and during the recording sessions, I suppose I would say itís relaxed and natural. Sandor and I have recorded four complete albums together, and parts of two more. The feeling in the studio is highly energized; yet very placid and calm. I think he and I both have about the exact same artistic temperament and approach; no stress, no nervousness; we just allow the music to speak through us. I know that may sound a little odd, but I donít how to explain it other than that. For me, the recording process is very natural. Itís a part of the creative process which tends to be more concrete than others. Strangely enough, as much as I find this process to be a natural one, after a day in the recording studio, I am just so wiped out that I can barely speak. The albums Iíve done with Sandor were each recorded in just one day; while thatís a pretty fast recording pace, it can leave you rather drained at the end of that long day!

A.S. The musical language from Scalar Fields to the new album, Parabola, through (via) Resonance and Parallel Crossings, is constantly evolving. Do you think to bring this moving language versus forms of electronic or maybe microtonal music, for example, using the computer to modulate the sounds during the performance or tuning the guitars with strange temperaments?


Kevin Kastning's productions at onclassical.com - MP3 downloads (at 64 kbps) are freely available.

K.K. Iíve never been very interested in electronic music, though I have listened to it; I find much of John Cageís work interesting. Real acoustic instruments speak to me very directly and entirely spiritually; I think we will never fully explore their capabilities. Microtonal music I do find interesting; for example, Ezra Sims and the quarter-tone work of Charles Ives especially. The various tunings Iíve created are like extra paint colors on an artistís palette; theyíre not a an end unto themselves, but a means to an end. I think my (for lack of a better term) research into scordatura has been one catalyst for growth and forward momentum, though not the only one. Since you mentioned the three released albums Iíve done with Sandor, Iíll answer based on those. Iím not interested in repeating something Iíve already done; each new composition or new album will always be different from what preceded it. Not as a prerequisite exactly, but as far as I can tell, this is just part of my artistic process. At any given moment, Iím working on two or three new albums in the studio, and usually around 10 or so new non-guitar compositions; pieces for string quartet, for example. There is a new album with Siegfried which is complete; it will be released later this year or early next year. Itís very different than anything weíve done; yet itís still us, and in my opinion, itís the finest and most evolved work he and I have done together. And Iím working on a solo album using my various guitar voices; specifically the DKK-12 and the alto together, and also an album of medieval works. With so many new pieces to complete, and so many new ones beginning all the time as others finish, thereís just no time to repeat something Iíve already done. So I think that what youíre describing as hearing the music constantly evolving is maybe just a part of this forward-moving process or momentum. I know Sandor feels the same. I think this is not something unique to he and I; I suspect this is a normal developmental element of a healthy artistic trajectory.

Van Gogh once said something to the effect that ďa true artist is one who is always seeking, but never finding.Ē I think the evolvement youíre hearing in my music is just part of an organic process. And by the way, thank you for saying so.

A.S. To be part of our artists (and albums) at OnClassical is not very easy. We received each month tens of musicians that send their material to our office but very few products have been considered good for our purpose. Your albums are instead a summary of innovative music and well-captured sound. Why did you choose OnClassical? What do you think about the project we are working on?

K.K. OnClassical came along at a time wherein I was thinking about what they were doing. I wondered why recording technology was moving forward, but content delivery was moving backward vis a vis the low-res mp3 download trends. It would be like having a high-definition DVD player, and connecting it to a 1950s black-and-white TV. It didnít make sense to me. I wondered why no one was offering high-res downloads; with the advent of broadband connections, the low-res and terribly compressed mp3 format was no longer valid. Finally someone was making it possible to download high-res files, and a classical online label at that. The genre which could benefit most from high-res recordings more so than any other genre. I hope to provide OnClassical with the 24-bit masters of some upcoming releases, too. I think itís a great concept, and I like how OnClassical is executing it. Iím really proud to be a part of OnClassical.

We are proud to introduce to you pianist, Antonio Palareti through his only available recording: The Art of Fugue. This version of the masterwork by Johann Sebastian Bach is the posthumous one published in 1751, and it consists of 14 fugues (the last of them unfinished) and 4 2-voice canons.

During a significant period, Antonio Palareti travelled within Italy and abroad, often accompanied by music critic and historian Piero Buscaroli (who has written for Mondadori the colossal biography dedicated to J.S. Bach), playing the Art by memory and creating dynamic energy and attention amongst all types of audiences.

This recording, made on a brand new Steinway & Son's 9-foot piano, is now available on onclassical.com in two different albums (for a total of about 90 minutes): first and second album.

Album playlists:

#1 Play it Details (Contrapunctus I-XI)
#2 Play it Details (Contrapunctus XII-XIV + 4 2-voice Canons)

A new wonderful and very clear album is now available on onclassical.com: SŠndor Szabů & Kevin Kastning - Resonance.

Resonance, Kevinís 2007 release with guitarist Sandor Szabo, was voted as one of the Top 10 Albums of 2007 by The Perfect Sound magazine. In October 2004, Kevin was voted Artist of the Month by the 13th Fret, the worldís largest acoustic guitar forum. In November 2007, Yankee Magazine stated, Kastning is a pioneer in modern acoustic guitar composition.

 
By @les (on 23/07/2008 @ 17:38:19, in Arrivals!)

Two new albums and others will be coming very soon at onclassical.com. The first one is a quasi-unique performance of the String Quintets by Brahms op. 88 & 111. The chamber music written by Brahms includes only two string quintets and here they are being proposed by the Sandro Materassi ensemble: a very energic group that includes some of the most notable and virtuoso musicians of Italy, such as Alberto Bologni (violin), Danilo Rossi (viola) and Mauro Valli (cello), and also Grazia Serradimigni (II violin) and Olga Arzilli (II viola). The captured sound on this CD is also excellent and reminds one of the real ambient of an old Cascina in the Piacenza region.

The second album is for Franz Liszt as played by the Italo-American excellent poetical pianist Roberto Poli. Liszt composed the second part of his "Années de Pèlerinage" between 1837 and 1849 on his trip to Italy when he came to know our artistic wonders (Raffaello, Michelangelo) and the poems by Dante and Petrarca. So which music and performance could be more inspired than this?

Enjoy!

In reference to the previous blog posted the 23rd November 2007 we announce that the Don Kosaken Chor Wanja Hlibka has alighted at onclassical.com with their only available album: The Russian world.

We are simply honoured to host this group, and we hope that you too might feel the full impact of their expressive force and the historical sense.

 
By @les (on 15/11/2007 @ 17:17:39, in Arrivals!)

Don Kosaken Chor is a male folk ensemble from the cold Russia. For more than 50 years the choir travelled throughout the world with Sergej Jaroff enjoying incredible success. At the time, the group recorded with no less than Deutsche Grammophone (I've been able to buy such an LP at an antiques market in Piazzola sul Brenta [near Padua]). This morning I found this 1930 documentary at YouTube...

Since 1991 the group is conducted by Wanja Hlibka, who at the time was one of its soloists (and in fact, all the members of the Don Kosaken Chor are amongst the greatest solosists that Russia has ever provided).

I have personally been to four of their concerts and I must admit I was extremely impressed. It was like standing before monuments, and the vibration was such that the dynamics were at the limits of tolerance (90 db), with intervals that cover extensions of over 4 and a half octaves (this is absolutely great on a sole male choir!), the organ sounds produced soft tones alternated with folkloristic effects so typical of Russia.

Don Kosaken Chor Wanja Hlibka

This post just to tell you that the only CD they ever recorded (as a dedicated recording not a live concert) will be soon available at onclassical.com. I am simply honoured to publish this group and I hope it will be the first of a series of famous vocal groups. A big thank you goes to the manager of the Kosaken Chor, Birgit Sziele, who has followed and supported onclassical.com since 2003!

 
By @les (on 15/11/2007 @ 16:30:13, in Arrivals!)

We have just released a new virtuoso artist: Pierre Feraux is a young virtuoso pianist who studied at the Royal Conservatory of Mons. He also graduated with top marks from the Queen Elizabeth College of Music (Waterloo, Belgium).

OnClassical's new featured artist: Pierre Feraux

Pierre has received many other prizes and awards in piano competitions: he has won the Andrée Charlier Piano Competition, the National Pro Civitate Competition, the Excellentia Piano Competition, and the J. Musiciens Contest.

In the album released at onclassical.com he performs the Liszt Sonata in b minor - for which he received a Special Award at the Royal College of Music from which he recently graduated. He then proposes Haydn's Sonata... and the Brahms' Variations op. 24. The pathos demonstrated leaves no space for doubts or technical imprecision: Feraux is a mature artist able to expess his musical thought without a glimpse of uncertainty.

Other new release: our first album compilation.

The OnClassical compilation

This is a collection of the best recordings for each instrument already present on onclassical.com. It's a good start to begin listening to our catalogue and quality.
