Castle Concerts

Eine Reihe mit audiophilen Konzertmitschnitten von Josef-Stefan Kindler und Andreas Otto Grimminger.
Copyright by K&K Verlagsanstalt, www.kuk-art.com.

Authentic Classical Concerts zu veröffentlichen, heisst für uns, herausragende Aufführungen und Konzerte für die Nachwelt festzuhalten und zu vermitteln. Denn Künstler, Publikum, Werk und Raum treten in einen intimen Dialog, der in Form und Ausdruck - in seiner Atmosphäre - einmalig und unwiederbringlich ist. Diese Symbiose, die Spannung der Aufführung dem Hörer in all ihren Facetten möglichst intensiv erlebbar zu machen, indem wir die Konzerte direkt in Stereo-Digital aufzeichnen, sehen wir als Ziel, als Philosophie unseres Hauses. Das Ergebnis sind einzigartige Interpretationen von musikalischen und literarischen Werken, schlichtweg - audiophile Momentaufnahmen von bleibendem Wert. Blühende Kultur, dem Publikum vor Ort und nicht zuletzt auch Ihnen zur Freude, sind somit jene Werte, welche wir in unseren Editionen und Reihen dokumentieren.
Erhaltenswertes und hörenswert Neues, musikalische Kostbarkeiten aus Tradition und Avantgarde - beides undenkbar ohne den Nährboden Europa - dokumentieren wir an historischer Stelle in unseren Produktionen aus der Reihe "Castle Concerts".

***** The best sounding recording of a piano
This performance of two Beethoven sonatas recorded before a live audience in a castle in Germany by pianist Lilya Zilberstein is incredible in two respects. First, the Appassionata is played as well as anyone I know, including the many legends of the keyboard who have recorded this masterpiece. Zilberstein has it all--technique, style, and passion. Equally remarkable is the sound. This is the best sounding recording of a piano I have ever heard--it must be heard to be believed, and if you are lucky to have a fine sound system you are in for a stupendous aural treat. If wish to hear a magnificant performance in otherwordly fidelity I urge you to track this release down before it becomes unavailable.

***** Even among all Beethoven sonatas on the market,
this one stands out
The disc is a product of Germany's K&K label, which specializes in live performances held in historically significant, if not acoustically appropriate, locations. Here they manage both. The Castle Church of Bad Homburg offers a fine ambiance for piano music in general and for Zilberstein's muscular, dynamic style in particular.
The disc offers the first half of a live concert whose date is localized only to October 2007; the second half was devoted to music of Brahms. At 52 minutes the program is short, but it is complete in itself, and one wants to hear the other disc if only to find out whether Zilberstein can sustain the intensity level from this half.
Zilbertstein has managed to devise fresh, fully realized interpretations of these two sonatas - no small feat, especially in the case of the ubiquitous Piano Sonata No. 23 in F minor, Op. 57 ('Appassionata'). Hear Zilberstein's exquisite shaping of the work's brooding opening page. The Beethovenian short-short-short long motif that plays such an important role in binding the music together is introduced in the shadows, but soon enough emerges as an exclamation with sufficent force to propel the main theme through its numerous harmonic transformations.
The level of tension in the entire sonata is remarkable; even the middle movement seems to see the with repressed energy. The early Piano Sonata No. 2 in A major, Op. 2, No. 2, is equally strong, with a unique rhythmic conception of the main theme. Just sit and listen: even among all the Beethoven sonatas on the market, this one stands out.

***** Exceptional Appassionata
Sonata 23 is a war horse. There are literally 3-5 dozen versions online from older versions Schnabel (much too fast) to Brendel and Horowitz (quite staid) Kissin Gilels Schiff Goode and others. This one has superb recording. It is live and one can feel the tension with the audience. It is exceptionally clean and not exceedingly fast. You can hear the nuances that lay buried in the ear with the speedsters. She has wonderful rubato moments and the phrase to phrase dynamics are exceptionally well done. Importantly it is very exciting to hear though you know every note; it appears fresh as I feel it is new, modern interpretation. Congratulations Lilya. I hope to hear you in concert in Boston.

Ein Sog, der unmittelbar fasziniert...
Unter dem Titel »Corelli's Legacy« hat die K&K Verlagsanstalt einen Konzertmitschnitt des European Union Baroque Orchestra (EUBO) von 2012 aus dem Bad Homburger Schloss herausgebracht (KuK 110, 2013). Dem Orchester, das sich jedes Jahr in neuer Besetzung mit jungen Musikern aus ganz Europa zusammenfindet, ist ein frischer, direkter Klang eigen. Hier bettet es das Concerto grosso B-Dur, op. 6 Nr. 11 von Arcangelo Corelli in sechs weitere Konzerte italienischer Komponisten der Nachfolgegeneration ein: von Pietro Castrucci, Antonio Maria Montanari, Giovanni Mossi, Giuseppe Valentini und Gasparo Visconti. In Francesco Geminianis Concerto grosso op. 3 Nr.12 »La Follia« nach Corellis Variationen für Violine und Basso continuo op. 5 Nr. 12, mit dem die Zusammenstellung von Werken des Lehrers und seiner nachweislichen bzw. mutmaßlichen Schüler schließt, zeigt sich der Bezug zu Corelli am deutlichsten. Unter Leitung von Riccardo Minasi, der unter anderem in den Violinsoli zu hören ist, musizieren die insgesamt 20 Instrumentalisten (Streicher, Theorbe und Cembali) mit einheitlichem Duktus, bei dem die Lebendigkeit der Musik oberste Priorität hat. So entwickelt nicht zuletzt Geminianis Variationenwerk in der Interpretation des EUBO einen Sog, der unmittelbar fasziniert.

Ein Katalog der Musikrichtungen im Europa des beginnenden 18.Jhd
Kundenbewertungen: 5 von 5 Sternen
Ein Blick in Arcangelo Corellis Werkstatt, denn auf dieser CD präsentieren sich neben dem Meister selbst seine Schüler, die sich über ganz Europa verteilten und natürlich auch lokale Stilelemente übernahmen, so dass die CD gleichzeitig einen Katalog der verschiedenen Musikrichtungen im Europa des beginnenden 18. Jahrhunderts darstellt. Aber alle zusammengehalten durch denselben „Filter“ der Corellischen Violinschule. Vorgetragen von dem European Union Baroque Orchestra, dass sich jedes Jahr aus den besten jungen Barockmusikern Europas neu zusammensetzt und sich als Kulturbotschafter der Europäischen Union versteht.

***** A wonderful and delicate piece of music...
I wish to write this review not only praising the quality and beauty of music contained on this album but also to thank K&K Verlagsanstalt personally for their generosity towards me. I am a film student who has just finished producing my graduate film. During post production I sort through many different recordings of Schubert Impromptus in particular the Impromptu Op.90 No.3 in G flat major. I felt this music would be appropriate for my film as it holds a certain bitter sweet quality that is rarely found is seldom come across. I chose the recording of K&K's as I believed it to be the most beautiful, with the lovely expression contained in the performance and overall clarity of the piece. I contacted K&K shortly after hearing it and they were kind enough to grant me the use of their recording for which, I am forever grateful.
I cannot explain my gratitude towards K&K Verlagsanstalt and also Franz Vorraber for such a virtuoso performance. All I can give is my support of their products and recommendation to others purchase their music.

Ein kleines Juwel - Ganz traumhaft! Meine Empfehlung!
"Musik im Schloss" nennt sich eine Veranstaltungsreihe, die in der Schlosskirche von Bad Homburg beheimatet ist. Dieser wunderschöne, intime Konzertsaal mit seiner Bürgy-Orgel, liebevoll saniert durch eine Bürgerinitiative, hat es den Tonmeistern Andreas Otto Grimminger und Josef-Stefan Kindler spürbar angetan. Mit ihrem Label K&K dokumentieren sie in der Serie "Castle Concerts" Konzerte in diesem phantastischen Raum - so auch dieses mit dem Thaous Ensemble.
Das Ensemble hat sich ganz jener höfischen Tradition verschrieben, die zu Mozarts Zeiten als Harmoniemusik bezeichnet wurde: Unterhaltungsmusik, üblicherweise ziemlich anspruchsvoll, die von je zwei Oboen, Klarinetten, Fagotten und Hörnern vorgetragen wird.
Mozart zeigte mit seiner Gran Partita, dass sich das Serenaden-Oktett mühelos zu einem Bläserorchester erweitern lässt - und dass sich aus scheinbar banalen Strukturen urplötzlich Melodiebögen erheben können, die einem den Atem verschlagen. Die Mitglieder des Thaous Ensembles zelebrieren seine Musik mit angemessenem Pathos. Als eine echte Entdeckung und Überraschung aber erweist sich die Sonatina No. 1 für 16 Blasinstrumente in F-Dur, AV 135, von Richard Strauss.
Was für ein kleines Juwel - und es wird auch ganz traumhaft vorgetragen. Meine Empfehlung!
