Prokofiev String Quartet No 2 Op 92
Janáček String Quartet No 1 Kreutzer Sonata
Osvaldo Golijov Tenebrae
Mendelssohn String Quartet No 6 Op 80

SIGCD551 |

Music that has sought to make sense of times of hardship and turbulence comes together in the Calidore String Quartet’s debut disc for Signum Records: Resilience.  Four disparate works – Prokofiev’s war-time Second Quartet, Janáček’s hugely personal response to Tolstoy’s novella The Kreutzer Sonata, Osvaldo Golijov’s aching response to two inspirations (the horror of war and the wonder his five-year-old son found in looking at the cosmos) and Mendelssohn’s utterly heartbreaking response to the death of his sister Fanny in his Sixth Quartet – offer separate paths to find solace in the midst of turmoil.

Release date: 23 November 2018

“This album tells in a way a story of my life, my dreams, my childhood scenes set in the place where I was born and where I grew up.”

For Venetian pianist Gloria Campaner, Schumann has been a lifelong passion. Kinderszenen was the first piano cycle she learned as a child and the Piano Concerto was a performance she heard many times at the Gran Teatro la Fenice with her parents. To perform and record these masterworks at the same theatre, with the Filarmonica della Fenice Venezia conducted by her friend John Axelrod, is not only a poignant rediscovery of childhood, but also an evocation of all that is home for her.

With this CD Gloria will also be raising funds for a children’s charity in Italy (one of the many she actively supports).

Mirare MIR384 |

One of the most famous musical enigmas in literature, the fictional Vinteuil Sonata at the heart of Marcel Proust’s magnum opus, In Search of Lost Time (À la recherche du temps perdu), is the inspiration for a new CD featuring sibling musicians Maria (violin) and Nathalia Milstein (piano).  Borletti-Buitoni Trust (BBT) Fellowship winner, Maria Milstein, held dear the idea of a recital based on the imaginary Vinteuil Sonata for some years and did not hesitate to make it a reality when awarded her BBT Fellowship in 2016. The result is The Vinteuil Sonata on the Mirare label.

The Vinteuil Sonata has been nominated for the  Edison Klassiek Public Award 2018.
