It always pays off when you delve deeper into something valuable: you begin to appreciate the way of thinking, feeling and thus here: composing.
This is the 4th album with Quilter songs, each approached from a different angle and with another voice.
I'm starting to really love this composer.

Revisiting this album.
Special request from the Missus.

Philip Glass - Violin Concerto No. 2 'American Four Seasons - Violin Sonata
Berner Kammerorchester, Philippe Bach
Piotr Plawner, violin
Gerardoo Vila, piano
Qobuz 24/96




Adventurous as always with dazzling rhythms, Glass also offers us some quiet baroque moments in his second violin concerto. Made me think of Bach, which I also read in the booklet afterwards.
With his dad, Glass often listened to violin sonatas of Franck, Fauré and Brahms on 78 rpm records (his dad had a record shop in Baltimore). These memories influenced the violin sonata.
Composed in 2008 (sonata) and 2009 (concerto).

Philip Glass has become an iconic figure in American music. His works are often inspired by collaborations with other leading musicians, and the proposal of an “American Four Seasons” by the violinist Robert McDuffie to reflect Vivaldi’s famous masterpiece resulted in a concerto which evokes the Baroque spirit of early 18th-century violin tradition. With the Concerto’s range of moods, listeners are invited to decide for themselves which season the music evokes. The Violin Sonata sees Glass’s melodic and harmonic language haunted by the ghosts of Brahms, Fauré and Franck, “the meditativeness of this piece bringing a unique energy” for award-winning violinist Piotr Plawner. © Naxos

Bach - Concertos for two harpsichords
Olivier Fortin
Emmanuel Frankenberg
Ensemble Masques

Qobuz 24/96




Marvellous interpretations of pieces I never tire hearing.
We saw Olivier Fortin with Skip Sempé a couple of years ago in the intimacy of the Chamber Music Hall in the Brugge Concertgebouw.
Here he can do his - great - thing with his ensemble.
Recommended!

The practice of composing for two keyboard instruments, very common in the illustrious Bach family, naturally achieved its apotheosis with Johann Sebastian, whose three concertos for two harpsichords are performed here by Olivier Fortin and Emmanuel Frankenberg with the Ensemble Masques. These works, particularly the Concerto in C minor, are among the composer’s most admired. They suggest a conception of the concerto specific to Bach: rather than a dialogue between several individual entities, the piece presents a subtle intertwining of melodic lines and blurs the distinction between solo and tutti parts by making them respond to and quote each other, thus illustrating the principle of harmony dear to the composer. Finally, the recording on two harpsichords of the Prelude and Fugue BWV 552, originally composed for organ, is in keeping with the nineteenth-century tradition of transposing Bach’s works with the aim of giving their refined polyphony greater clarity. © Naxos
