    Bizet - Carmen Fantasy (Speakers Corner)

    Some violinists enrapture their audience with their purity of tone, others with their warm timbre, or their amazing technical virtuosity. Pablo de Sarasate y NavascuÉz was one of the very few violinists who combined all these merits, and in addition was a composer in his own right. The most famous of his 50 works are Zigeunerweisen, based on traditional gypsy folklore and the fiendishly difficult Carmen Fantasy.



    And what better proof is there than Saint-Saëns's Rondo capriccioso that it is perfectly possible to unite high-spirited joyfulness with a minor key. As the name suggests, his Havanaise is filled with the melodies and colourful rhythms of Spain: no wonder this piece is known as "the violinists' warhorse".



    It goes without saying that these 19th-century bravura pieces are an absolute "must" for all those who wish to join the annals of great virtuoso violinists. And today, 40 years after the making of this recording, general consensus has it that Ruggiero Ricci has taken his rightful place among the great virtuosos.





    Musicians:



    • Ruggiero Ricci (violin)

    • London Symphony Orchestra

    • Pierino Gamba (conductor)

    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.

    Sibelius - Violin Concerto (Speakers Corner)

    The violin had got me completely under its spell; for ten years it was my greatest wish to become a great violin virtuoso , confessed Finland's national composer Jean Sibelius in later years. Although he began a career as a violin virtuoso too late, as a composer he profited enormously from his intimate knowledge of the instrument and the possibilities it offered. This is particularly apparent in his Violin Concerto with its wonderful synthesis of virtuosic expression and technical bravura, its classical symphonic form, its outward effects and inner substance. This late-Romantic, brilliantly coloured work is certainly one of the most rewarding for every soloist. A specialist in the field of 19th-century bravura pieces and master of an effortless technique and suppleness, the great American violinist Ruggiero Ricci certainly possessed all the requirements for a brilliant performance of this concerto. And Øivin Fjeldstad is the perfect partner for Ricci in more ways than one in this wonderfully lively recording: thanks to his training as both a conductor and a violinist, he ensures a perfect balance between soloist and orchestra; and as a Norwegian he is, of course, completely au fait with Scandinavian repertoire, and guarantees - both here and in other recordings with the London Symphony Orchestra - a truly nordic touch.

    • Ruggiero Ricci (violin)

    Lalo: Symphonie Espagnole / Ravel: Tzigane (Speakers Corner)

    Whenever the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande and Ernest Ansermet, their conductor of many years standing, entered the hall for a recording session, all lovers of high quality LPs looked forward to yet another addition to their collection. And when this wonderful ensemble was joined by such a unique artist as Ruggiero Ricci, who had appeared in the Carnegie Hall at the early age of nine, then their joy knew no bounds. The present re-release offers all fans of fiery rhythms and sumptous symphonic sound a wonderful opportunity to revel in a musical treat in audiophile quality.



    Lalo's highly virtuosic and therefore seldom performed Symphonie espagnole glows with a rich sound palette full of southern temperament as only a large orchestra can. Ruggiero Ricci rivets the listener's attention with his pithy tone, his amazing cascades of sound and melancholy gypsy melodies.
    For all those who cannot get enough of Ricci's captivating playing, a brilliant encore is provided by Ravel's Tzigane - a true showpiece of 20th-century violin repertory.



    Sheer delight for the ears and the soul - and certainly not limited to fans of virtuoso violin playing.

    Over There That Way

    Heliotropes combine sludgy metal guitar tones, introspective shoegaze
    interludes, psychedelic drone, and atmospheric harmonies to create a sound
    that's as equally hard to pin down as it is alluring, earning them the title of
    Village Voice's Best Garage Band Of 2014.


    Heliotropes is comprised of founding member/songwriter/vocalist Jessica
    Numsuwankijkul, along with a rotating cast of collaborators, including
    drummer Cici Harrison, bassist Richard Thomas, and guitarist Ricci Swift,
    who are all featured on the band's upcoming album.


    The band's first recorded offering came with 2012's Ribbons 7", followed the
    next year by their debut LP entitled A Constant Sea, which was named by
    Mother Jones as one of the 10 Best Albums Of 2013. Since then, the band
    has performed on the road with Esben And The Witch and toured nationally
    with stops at South By Southwest, Firefly and Culture Collide, sharing the
    stage with a far-reaching variety of bands including Thurston Moore, The
    Geto Boys, Matt and Kim, Kurt Vile, Parquet Courts, The Black Angels and
    The Raveonettes.

    Piazzolla: Salvatore Accardo (Out Of Stock)

    Two genuine art pieces for orchestra and solo violin are on the program on this record: Astor Piazzolla's composition Tanti Anni Prima in a version for string orchestra and solo violin, and composer Leonard Bernstein's five-movement Serenade for Violin, String Orchestra, Harp and Percussion. Piazzolla's Tanti Anni Prima shows the grand master of tango nuevo of his tender, lyrical side, the turn of Italian violin virtuoso Salvatore Accardo and his Orchestra Da Camera Italiana will serve excellently. Bernstein's Serenade, however, is a virtuoso tour de force that demands not only a soloist but also a few strings and percussion machine operators. But Accardo proved himself as a soloist and as an orchestra conductor in top form. The transparent and detailed room-filling sound of this recording, making Bernstein's colorful arrangement here in addition, a special experience. The recording was purely analog Giulio Cesare Ricci absorbed through Neumann microphones at a Ampex two-track analog machine. Even the one-stage cut is implemented as pure analog. The LP was pressed in Germany on high quality 180-gram virgin vinyl. Strictly limited to 496 pieces!
