Ferruccio Busoni:
L'Enigme

The enigmatic Italian composer Ferruccio Busoni slipped somewhat between the cracks of music history. Although well-known for his brilliant piano transcriptions of master- pieces by other composers, his original works have eluded popularity in performance. The publication of his controversial essay, Sketch of a new aesthetic of music (1907), marks a turning point in his musical style. The Enigma highlights some of these later works, including the heroic Fantasia Contrappuntistica, two of the Elegies, the Fantasia Nach J.S. Bach, and the Indian Diary.

Paris - Los Angeles

Austrian-American composer Eric Zeisl fled Vienna in 1938 and found refuge first in Paris before relocating to Los Angeles. This album depicts the friendship between Eric Zeisl and Darius Milhaud, their exile to California and their mutual admiration for each other’s work, and revisits Mozart’s sonata in E minor which fascinated Zeisl.

Tigran Mansurian
Con Anima

Conceived jointly by violinist Movses Pogossian and violist Kim Kashkashian on the occasion of Tigran Mansurian’s 80th birthday, the Con animaproject brings together a dedicated cast of players to perform the Armenian composer’s chamber music. The emphasis is on newer pieces - only the Third String Quartet dates from the 20th century - but there is a timeless quality to Mansurian’s work, all of which resounds with the spirit of his homeland. Sonata da Chiesa is dedicated to the memory of priest-composer-folklorist Komitas, an enduring inspiration for Mansurian. Agnus Dei is influenced by Armenian sacred music, and Die Tänzerin is based upon an Armenian folk dance.

Romance de Guerre

As the long months of the Great War wore on, society clung to its former codes, to habits belonging to prewar times. Many composers, whether far removed from the conflict like Elgar or wallowing in the mud of the trenches like Philippe Gaubert, were convinced that the sonata, which for over a century had been playing on the salons’ heartstrings, was not about to die. If the Elgar sonata is well-known, the works of Philippe Gaubert and all the more those of Blair Fairchild, unfairly forgotten, deserve a revival.
