Since the early 1990s, Antonio Vivaldi and Fabio Biondi have become an inseparable pair for many music lovers around the world. In his latest recording for Glossa, Mr. Biondi offers further proof of Vivaldis astonishing imaginative powers as a composer of violin concertos, matched by Biondis own dynamic and cultured virtuosity as a violinist (and director). With these Farewell Concertos, Biondi leading Europa Galante turns to works written by a Vivaldi very near the end of his life as he traveled to Vienna in a desperate search for creative opportunities. I concerti delladdio sees the composer in a Vienna in mourning for its recently deceased emperor and himself more attuned to the now fashionable galante style, bearing witness to Vivaldis late style as it headed in the direction of Tartini and Locatelli.

The Britten Sinfonia s Associate Leader, Thomas Gould directs the ensemble in Dmitry Sitkovetsky s beautifully realised and heartfelt arrangement for strings of Bach s great keyboard work, 'The Goldberg Variations'. Sitkovetsky s arrangement (first conceived for string trio and later expanded for string orchestra), made in 1985 on the 300th anniversary of Bach s birth, is lovingly and painstakingly done. He dedicates the string trio arrangement to Glenn Gould, and it is clear from much of the written-out ornamentation that Gould s recordings of the Goldbergs were Sitkovetsky s passport into the music.

The 24 Caprices by Pietro Antonio Locatelli are unique in terms of both their form and their content. Taken from L’Arte del Violino op.III published in 1733 in Amsterdam, the Caprices are placed at the end of the external movements. They are autonomous pieces which have all the characteristics of the cadenza, namely a free form, and a highly inventive virtuosity. Gabriel Tchalik was born into a Franco-Russian family, these two cultures affecting both his personality and technique. He spent many years studying with Alexandre Brussilovsky. His impressive technical and musical qualities have been acknowledged at numerous international competitions. He won first prize at the Islam Petrella Competition in Albania, first prize at the first Yuri Yankelevitch International Competition in 2009.

Brahms's important output of 24 chamber scores dominated the second half of the 19th century, as that of Beethoven had dominated the first half. His corpus was thus a response to that of Beethoven, his model, and to that of Mendelssohn, who was likewise born in Hamburg and also composed two cello sonatas. In 1890, aged only 57, Brahms resolved to give up composing but he had reckoned without the inspiration that his meeting with the Meiningen clarinettist Richard Mühlfeld was to have on his creative imagination. He subsequently added four scores for clarinet to his output, including this Trio Op. 114. Louis Schwizgebel-Wang was

'Obviously,from the interpreter of these pieces of all the pieces on this CD one expects skill and sensitivity.But there must be still more:a gift for colour;an ability to imagine decors;a vision of textures,of space.And also,for these pieces that are at once heir to and summing-up of a glorious tradition,a wide-ranging knowledge,a culture of the piano repertoire.The interpreter of the Études is situated at the finishing line of a marathon,that of the keyboard en blanc et noir.He or she must know everything,and play nearly everything.Nelson Goerner is one such pianist.'Dominique Jameux.

Ricercar could not help but participate in celebrating Rameau Year. It is Florence Malgoires ensemble LES DOMINOS that pays this tribute with a very rarely played repertoire. This is what Camille Saint-Saëns called Concerts en Sextuor in the edition of Rameaus works that he undertook at the end of the 19th century. To carry out this monumental project, he started from a manuscript executed, it would seem, by a certain Monsieur Decroix in 1768, i.e., four years after the composers death. These Concerts de Monsieur Rameau are, in fact, transcriptions in six parts of the Pièces de Clavecin en Concert that Rameau had conceived at the outset from his harpsichord pieces with accompaniment by violin or flute and bass viol. This adaptation by M. Decroix is quite enigmatic, and Les Dominos give us a colourful reading of it, combining with the strings two emblematic instruments of Rameaus orchestra: flutes and bassoon.
