    The Bach Keyboard Concertos (Speakers Corner)

    The attempts that have been made to describe Glenn Gould's complex personality are endless in number, as are his surprising and often eccentric interpretations. Whether he is considered to be a sensitive maniac, neurotic individualist or uncompromising genius - Gould polarises, provokes and fascinates us long after his death in 1982. As early as 1964 the Canadian pianist ceased to give concerts, since he found appearing before an audience completely unacceptable and preferred to concentrate on studio recordings.



    Way in front of composers of the Viennese Classical era, which he did not take particularly seriously - although his performances keenly reflect Beethoven's rhythmicity - comes his personal deity: Bach. Gould's notorious strictness gives form to the minutest of figure in the score. He weaves his way through Bach's music and thereby articulates its tightly knit and multi-facetted depths. No lecturing keyboard proponent this, but a creative co-composer who imbues the spirit of the music with life and sonority. Upon the release in 1980 of the 80th Birthday Edition with its wealth of visual and tonal material, the music journalist Werner Theurich wrote that »no one had ever played more raptly, or more intensively. That Gould's performances are nothing but heavenly can be seen and felt. The rest is pure music.«

    About Speakers Corner



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasise that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    In My Solitude: Live In Concert At Grace Cathedral

    Branford Marsalis is one of the most revered instrumentalists of his time. The three-time Grammy Award® winner has continued to exercise and expand his skills as an instrumentalist, a composer, and the head of Marsalis Music, the label he founded in 2002 that has allowed him to produce both his own projects and those of the Jazz world's most promising new and established artists.


    Branford Marsalis is one of the few illustrious Jazz artists who have performed at Grace Cathedral since Duke Ellington helped consecrate the cathedral in 1965 with his Concert of Sacred Music. Marsalis gave a performance of both composed and improvised music. He played a solo work written for oboe by C.P.E. Bach, solo saxophone pieces by Steve Lacy and Ryo Noda, and a beautiful version of Hoagy Carmichaels 'Stardust'. All of these pieces are connected by improvisations from Branford, which keep the music of various genres flowing and hold the album together.


    Leader of one of the finest jazz Quartets today, and a frequent soloist with classical ensembles, Branford has become increasingly sought after as a featured soloist with orchestras around the world.

    This classic LP of the Bach Concertos was recorded when Menuhin was in his early 40s and in his prime and the LP has been newly cut at EMIs Abbey Road Studios from the original stereo EMI Master Tapes.


    The Bach A minor and E minor Concertos were recorded at Londons famous Kingsway Hall venue on the 7th & 8th of October 1958, and the Double Concerto (with the legendary French violinist Christian Ferras) recorded on 8 July 1959.


    Produced and engineered by Peter Andry and Robert Gooch. The album is pressed on 180g vinyl to audiophile standards and features the original album artwork.

    Bach: 1-6 Solo Cello Suites (Speakers Corner)

    Today it is difficult to understand that despite the tremendous Bach renaissance that took place in the 19th century many compositions by the Cantor of St. Thomas's Church in Leipzig had been underrated. The Cello Suites, for example, have been regarded for almost 300 years as purely a set of tricky etudes that every virtuoso in the making simply must tackle. What recording engineers and their equipment can bring to the ears is quite astounding. So it was back in the Thirties with Pablo Casal's legendary recording against which every cellist is measured today and to whose perfection he aspires.



    Janos Starker's recording of the Suites from 1965 makes a lasting impression on the listener, even when compared with other recordings from the digital era, and even record producers who are well used to recorded excellence have been highly impressed. For Charlotte Gilbert of the Mercury record label, these recording sessions were one of five truly great events in all her 20 years of recording experience.



    Without a doubt, Starker allows his instrument to resound freely but without forcing the tone. Starker's full-bodied sound and technical brilliance are complemented by his finely chiselled interpretation that lends immense expression to Bach's thrilling harmony and verve to the strict rhythmic construction of the movements. Just listen to his organ-like double-stopped passages, the eloquent dialogues, and the pure excitement created by his highly individual treatment of tempo. Then you will surely agree with the often-quoted paradox that Bach's Cello Suites are 'polyphony for a solo instrument'.

    Handel - Music For The Royal Fireworks

    The late Sir Charles Mackerras was an extraordinarily versatile musician who could be relied on to give first class accounts of everything from Bach to Britten and was renowned as an interpreter of Mozart and Janacek in particular. He also often remade recordings of works associated with him over his long career, like his 1962 recording of Pineapple Poll, music by Sullivan he arranged into a ballet.


    In 1959, the small British label Pye asked him to record Handel's Music for the Royal Fireworks, which was met with critical acclaim for attempting to reproduce the sound Handel would have heard, rather than the smoother orchestral arrangements usually played at that time. The recording used some 26 oboes, creating an ensemble of over 70 players. Ever at the vanguard of authentic performance rather than authentic instruments, Mackerras took advantage of more modern recording techniques by re-recording the Handel at Abbey Road for EMI, again with an augmented wind band that Handel would have employed for the original open air performance in Green Park.


    Recorded at No.1 Studio, Abbey Road on October 8 and December 19, 1976, produced by the legendary Suvi Raj Grubb, and engineered by Robert Gooch. Cut at Abbey Road Studios from the original stereo analog master tapes with the Neumann VMS82 lathe fed an analog pre-cut signal from a specially adapted Studer A80 tape deck with additional advance playback head, ensuring a completely analog process.

    Tabula Rasa

    The Berlin based Estonian Arvo PÄrt is one of the most important composers of the post-war era. His postmodern style is equally inspired by traditional as by new methods and has earned him the reputation of being a visionary.


    Tabula Rasa stands as one of his most widely-performed compositions, as well as a fine example of his mature style. At once reverent, bleak and timeless, rich with otherwordly harmonies, Tabula Rasa aptly displays exactly why Arvo PÄrt is regarded as one of the most exceptional composers of the late 20th century.


    This 2LP set from Vinyl Passion includes: Tabula Rasa - Concerto for 2 Violins, Prepared Piano and String Orchestra (1971); Symphony No. 1 'Poliphonic' (1964); Collage On The Theme B-A-C-H (1964); and Concerto for Cello and Orchestra. To Mstislav Rostropovich (1966).

    Their programme comprises Bach (Sonata for Violin and Piano No. 4 in C minor, BWV 1017, whose lilting opening movement became the sublime 'Erbarme dich' from St Matthew Passion), Brahms (Sonatensatz in C minor, Op. posth.) and Schumann (FantasiestÜcke, Op. 73 and the Violin Sonata No 1 in A minor, Op 105). "Working with Martha was a unique experience for me," Itzhak Perlman has said Her brilliance and the colours she uses when she plays are recognisable as soon as you hear them: it's her - nobody else sounds like that I am so excited that we were actually able to record together again." Martha Argerich is no less enthusiastic in her praise of her duo partner: "I feel so stimulated to play with Itzhak, it's really a feast - fantastic! It's a very special relationship, I am completely enchanted. it's like having a conversation You get inspired by what you hear at a particular moment. There is an interplay, a lot of things happen - it has spontaneity!"

    Tchaikovsky: Klavierkonzert

    A win at the International Chopin Piano Competition in 1965, at age 24, officially put Martha Argerich on the musical map. An exciting and mercurial artist, Argerich has recorded extensively throughout a career that has encompassed works by Bach through Beethoven, Schumann, Liszt, Debussy, Ravel and Bartók among others.



    Here, the multiple Grammy-winner and 2012 Gramophone Hall of Fame inducted Argentinian pianist performs Tchaikovsky's Concerto No. 1 In B Flat Minor For Piano & Orchestra, Op. 23 with accompaniment from the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra as conducted by Charles Dutoit. "The very fine sound of the horns right at the start augurs well and the wonderful weight and quality of Martha Argerich's opening if chords suggest that at any rate one need have no worries about the quality of this recording...The present record is really superb. So is Argerich, giving a performance of great range and of much subtlety...Praise must go, too, to the conductor, Dutoit who accompanies excellently and with notably good phrasing." - Gramophone/1971

    Bach: Five Concertos for Harpsichord

    " Rondeau is one of the most natural performers one is likely to hear on a classical music stage these days. Affectation and ostentation are not part of his makeup and, once seated at the instrument, he and the harpsichord become one." -The Washington Post


    Jean Rondeau, the imaginative young French harpsichordist, describes the Bach family as "one of the great dynasties of western music". Having devoted his first Erato disc, Imagine, to works by the towering Johann Sebastian, he now returns to Bach's world for his third release, Dynastie, which complements concertos by Johann Sebastian with concertos by his three most famous sons, Wilhelm Friedemann, Carl Philipp Emmanuel and Johann Christian.


    Rondeau has described JS Bach, who has been part of his life since his childhood, as "daunting like a mighty mountain", but at the same time feels that "his music is so full of humility, so generous, that we have the right and the duty to play it, to share it, and to take the hand that he extends to us."

    Horowitz At Carnegie Hall

    The musical rest is defined as being a pause during which no sound is heard until the next tone is sounded. And the same goes for a musician who makes a long pause, which is then ended by thundering applause from an enraptured audience. This is exactly what happened on 9 May 1965, the day on which Vladimir Horowitz stepped onto the stage at Carnegie Hall after an absence of 12 years.
    As so often, the maestro ignored all types of works from Viennese Classicism, and certainly no one missed them. Busoni's arrangement of Bach's Toccata in C major, BWV 564 is precise, has enormous presence and is yet impressively transparent; Schumann's Fantasy op. 17 is emotional, at times breathless and charming; Horowitz captures the spirit of Scriabin and Chopin with virtuosity and heartfelt emotion, allowing the works to waft over the audience.
    As a finale to this celebrated comeback, Horowitz performs a delightfully light and fresh rendering of Moszkowski's Etude in A major, op. 27, and brings the evening to a peaceful end with Schumann's unique TrÄumerei (Dreaming) from Kinderszenen (Scenes from Childhood). In this live recording of just one of several comebacks, the discerning listener will notice the tension and nervousness at this literally high-temperature event - the noisy air-conditioning had been shut at the request of the recording engineers.

    Plays Bach No. 1 (Speakers Corner)

    As long as 40 years ago, at a time when Pop and Classical music were strictly separated from one another, Jacques Loussier's "Swinging Bach" thrilled both friends of Baroque music and jazz lovers alike. Other musicians have tried, and are still trying, to jump on this modern "Bach band wagon" - but not one of them has achieved anything like the international success of the French trio.



    "Play Bach" is to be taken at its word. If Prelude, Fugue or Toccata is on the label - then that's what one gets: the melodies and the harmonic structure of Johann Sebastian's original works are largely left untouched - you always know where counterpoint stops and groove sets in. Just as in Bach's day the keyboard is at the fore, but the double bass also has a good share of the polyphony, and the finely nuanced percussion swings along as though it has no cares in the world and adds its own sparks of fire to pearl-like scale passages.
    What better way to bring the Bach Year to an end than with the re-release of the first Loussier album? The first of Bach's 48 Preludes and Fugues shows how it began - just as they show how Jacques Loussier began.



    Musicians:



    • Jacques Loussier (arranger, piano)

    • Pierre Michelot (bass)

    • Christian Garros (drums, percussion)




    Recording: 1959




    About Speakers Corner



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasise that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    Englewood Cliffs Sessions

    In legendary Jazz producer Rudy Van Gelder's studio's Englewood Cliff Sessions came to life; a Souljazz album by Dutch Jazz organist Rob Mostert.


    It's a truly buzzing album, too; Influenced by great artists such as Jimmy Smith, Jimy McCriff, J.S. Bach, en Herbie Hancock and inspired by his surroundings, Rob recorded an album with Rudy that howls, moans, and swings like no other.


    All the great music that was recorded there for labels such as Blue Note, Verve! and CTI seeped out of the walls and immersed Rob in a Smooth jazz esthetic.
    Beautiful Hammond Souljazz, now also available on vinyl!

    Kol Nidrei

    All Analogue AAA Recording


    Mastered by Kevin Gray from the Original Analogue Tapes


    Pressed at Pallas in Germany


    Gary Karr performs with Harmon Lewis on piano and pipe organ for a handful of classical pieces by Bach, Wilder, Koussevitzky, and others.


    The Kol Nidrei was the musical impetus that put Karr on the path toward a solo career. He first performed this music in a synagogue at the age of eleven and still considers it his most personal piece.


    Gary Karr, acclaimed as the world's leading solo bassist (Time Magazine), is, in fact, the first solo doublebassist in history to make that pursuit a full-time career. It is a career that adds new lustre to his already lustrous 1611 Amati doublebass which was given to him by the widow of Serge Koussevitzky.


    Since his debut with Leonard Bernstein and the New York Philharmonic in 1962, Karr has performed as soloist on six continents with orchestras, including the Chicago Symphony, London Philharmonic Orchestra, Hong Kong Philharmonic, Montreal Symphony, Simon Bolivar Orchestra (Caracas, Venezuela), Jerusalem Symphony, Oslo Philharmonic, Zurich Chamber Orchestra, and with all the major orchestras of Australia.

    The Conny Plank Session

    Duke Ellington's musical works are seemingly well documented; the likelihood of finding a good,unreleased Duke Ellington recording is slight at best.When Grönland Records called and told me they had found exactly that in Conny Plank's estate and asked me if I wanted to give it a listen, I felt pretty honored, and excited. The music of Duke Ellington is - in my worldview - to jazz what Bach's oeuvre is to classical music: THE great benchmark, or - to raise it up onto an even higher pedestal - the Old Testament, the alpha and omega. With both Bach and Ellington, you can sit down at a piano simply to go through it building chords and something great always happens. This music is so rich, and it is virtually indestructible.

    The Golden Age of Harpsichord Music (Speakers Corner)

    The harpsichord, sometimes disrespectfully referred to as a plucked instrument with keys, left its stamp on the musical language of the Baroque as no other. Whether employed as a continuous bass to accompany delicate chamber music, or heard in heady open-air concerts, or just as a solo instrument, its bright sound, rich in overtones, was highly esteemed by all important composers and musicians of the era. Due to the construction of the instrument it is not possible to play with a differentiated volume of sound, so performers made a virtue of necessity in that they concentrated upon lively phrasing and a well-considered choice of register.



    In the present recording Rafael Puyana plays a two-manual Pleyel harpsichord and interprets a wide and varied range of European keyboard works from the 17th and 18th centuries. Along with compositions by Louis Couperin and Domenico Scarlatti's, both of whom had a great influence on style in their day, this compilation has at its heart works by the English composers John Bull, William Byrd and Peter Philips, which are taken from the most famous collection of all Baroque compositions, the Fitzwilliam Virginal Book. Short notes on the back cover provide useful information on the works' historical context.



    Musicians:



    • Besard, Couperin, Francisque, Scarlatti, Freixanet, Bach, Bull, Byrd, Philips, Peerson, and AlbÉniz - Rafael Puyana (harpischord)




    Recording: April and May 1962 at Ballroom Studio A of Fine Recording, New York City, by C. Robert Fine and Robert Eberenz

    Production: Wilma Cozart-Fine and Harold Lawrence




    About Speakers Corner



    At the beginning of the 90s, in the early days of audiophile vinyl re-releases, the situation was fairly straightforward. Companies such as DCC, Mobile Fidelity, Classic Records and, of course, Speakers Corner all maintained a mutual, unwritten ethical code: we would only use analogue tapes to manufacture records.



    During the course of the present vinyl hype, many others have jumped on the bandwagon in the hope of securing a corner of the market. Very often they are not so ethical and use every imaginable source to master from: CDs, LPs, digital files, MP3s - or employed existant tools from the 80s and 90s for manufacturing.



    A digital delay is gladly used when cutting a lacquer disc because tape machines with an analogue delay have become quite rare and are therefore expensive. When cutting the lacquer, the audio signal is delayed by one LP revolution against the signal, which controls the cutter head, and for this a digital delay is very often employed. Of course, the resultant sound signal is completely digital and thus only as good as this delay.



    We should like to emphasise that Speakers Corner Records on principle only uses the original master tape as the basis for the entirely analogue cutting of lacquer discs. In addition, the pressing tool is newly manufactured as a matter of principle. We have one digital recording in our catalogue (Alan Parsons / Eye In The Sky"), but even in this particular case we used the analogue tapes for cutting.



    We only employ existing tools for manufacturing if an improved result is not forthcoming, e.g. the title Elvis Is Back, which was mastered by Steve Hoffman and Kevin Gray, or several titles from our Philips Classics series, which in any case Willem Makkee cut from the original masters at the Emil Berliner Studios in the 90s. It goes without saying that we only used the mother and that new tools were made for our production.



    To put it in a nutshell: we can ensure you that our releases are free from any kind of digital effects - excluding the exception above - and that the lacquer discs are newly cut.

    I Hear A Symphony

    Like no other, Motown's founder Berry Gordy knew how to market 'his' acts. The Supremes (later named Diana Ross & The Supremes) were his mainstream Pop offering, bridging the gap between Soul and popular music, while even incorporating Classic themes (like A Lover's Concerto was inspired by Bach).


    I Hear A Symphony (1966) contains some of the best tunes written by famed producing trio Holland-Dozier-Holland, as well as great cover versions of popular songs like Unchained Melody and the Beatles' Yesterday.

    6 & 12 String Guitar

    The release of this truly iconic album virtually launched Leo Kottke out beyond the St. Paul-Minneapolis confines where he had been ensconced as a local phenom. By jumping on board John Fahey's burgeoning Takoma label, Kottke's guitar wizardry (especially finger-picking a 12-string, usually reserved as rhythm accompaniment) gave other guitarists far and wide, second thoughts. Throw in some sassy slide work on both 6 & 12 String Guitar and you'll know why this particular record is commonly referred to as an Intro to Guitar 101. With twelve original compositions plus a few by J.S. Bach, Kottke's blues, folk, country and classical channelings dictate both his playful and reflective approach on each. Highlights include blazing picking techniques on Busted Bicycle and Vaseline Machine Gun with some muscular bottleneck slide work on The Sailor's Grave On The Prairie.
