Aqua

Water, in all its myriad of moods. Just imagine… …the sea, waves reflecting the shimmering silver and gold of the sun’s rays; a babbling brook, its bed bejewelled with iridescent stones; deep water radiating a soft, serene, blue light; raindrops falling from a pallid sky like tears shed by a heart rent with sorrow... The young Latvian pianist, Arta Arnicane, lends all this to your grand piano. With works by Chopin, Debussy, Grieg, Liszt and Ravel as well as Berio, Ķepītis and Žilinskis and more...

Italian Rococo at The Hermitage

In the 18th and 19th centuries, the Hermitage in St Petersburg not only housed famous art collections, which were made accessible to the public after the October Revolution, but also hosted glamorous musical events.

The idea for this CD came in conjunction with Claire Genewein’s elevation to Doctor of Creative and Performing Arts at the University of Leiden in the Netherlands in June 2014...

Tierisch!

„Ich muss im früheren Leben eine Reblaus g´wesn sein …“, singt jener Mann, dem man auf den ersten Blick nicht zutraut, in diesem Leben jemals auch nur einen einzigen Rausch gehabt zu haben!

The Violin Battle

The advantages of old master violins against modern violins - or vice versa - is one of the most discussed issues in the world of string instruments. A year can barely pass without a new scientific study, in which they claim to be able to definitely prove which one is better. For the most part, these supposed sensations reveal only one dimensional thinking, which can hardly ever be appropriate when defining a such complex phenomenon as a string instrument. The situation is absurd and confusing, because nothing is more vague than the price to sound ratio with stringed instruments...
