Crescendo Magazine  4/12/2018: Les honneurs pour le Quatuor Ebène

The Strad 27/11/2018: The French string quartet receives €15,000 industry prize awarded during the annual Musikmesse - … With a repertoire ranging from classic works to interpretations of well-known film soundtracks and pop songs, it has gained a reputation for attracting a younger audience and has won numerous international prizes, including the BBC Music Magazine Award, the Gramophone Award, the Midem Classic Award and various ECHO Klassik awards. …‘The Trustees of the Frankfurt Music Prize acclaim Quatuor Ébène as an outstanding ensemble whose electrifying playing is characterised by passion, complete fidelity to the original works and a simultaneous delight in improvisation,’ the citation reads.

 
fauré

On 14 September 2018, the world-famous Fauré Quartett will release its latest album on Berlin Classics:
"Pictures at an Exhibition" - a world premiere of the recording as a version for a piano quartet.
 
The exciting history of the Pictures at an Exhibition and Études-Tableaux from piano solo to orchestral works culminates in the phenomenal diversity of sounds of the Fauré Quartett. As if bringing out the best of a solo piano and a large orchestra, the Fauré Quartett, located in between those two extremes, seems to achieve the best of both worlds. With their love of experimentation the four astonishing musicians call the most important stages their home. The internationally renowned Fauré Quartett is releasing the world’s first-ever recording of Pictures at an Exhibition and Etudes-Tableaux in their versions for piano quartet on the Berlin Classics label.

Achten

Classica Avril 2018 : Idylles baroques - La luxuriance des instruments de Scherzi Musicali se marie avec bonheur à la justesse des solistes dans ces dialogues amoureux - Après un premier opus consacré aux motels, I'ensemble Scherzi Musicali explore à présent le versant profane de Giovanni Felice Sances, … D'autant que l'instrumentarium ici réuni brille par sa luxuriance et son hédonisme sonore, parfaitement assorti à la sensualité de l'écriture vocale: aux traditionnels clavecin, orgue et archiluth se joignent triple harpe, chitarrone, guitare et épinette.

Diapason Découverte Mars 2018 - …Nicolas Achten se distingue une nouvelle fois par son talent caméléon de multi-instrumentiste (harpe chitarrone et clavecin) et de baryton. Il s'est entouré d'un opulent ensemble de continuistes avec violes, lirone, chitarone, luth, archiluth, guitare et claviers divers. L'accompagnement de ces miniatures dramatiques se voit empli de colorations variées, contrastées et toujours bienvenues.

anderzewski

Limelight Magazine’s recording of the month 4/06/2018 : Piotr’s heart of Mozart: Polish pianist plumbs the depths in a couple of Classical masterpieces. Piano concertos nr 25 & 27 -…There are many moments of surprise and delight: the sense of the curtain rising at the opening of No 25, Anderszewski’s grand but playful cadenza for this movement, the boisterous elegance of that concerto’s finale, and the “joy through tears” of the piano’s first entry in No 27. The genius of these performances lies in their seeming spontaneity, which is clearly the result of a profound exploration of the many layers of meaning to be found here. .… I’ve lived with this album for a few weeks now and each time I hear it I recall Anderszewski’s remark, from the back cover of the disc, in which he describes this as “music of such evident limpidity. It is a miracle.” Phillip Sametz - Review in full
