    Composer: Ramanos Melikian
    Artists: Mariam Sarkissian (mezzo-soprano), Artur Avanesov (piano)

    Although Aram Khachaturian may be one of Armenia’s most famous composers, and certainly the best known of the 20th century, the vast wealth of compositional talent from that country by no means stops with him. This unusual and engrossing release showcases a selection of highly diverse songs by three of his compatriots. Beginning with Romanos Melikian’s Emerald Songs, with their Ravel-like harmonies and colourful modality, it also features the transgressive composer Tigran Mansurian, whose alternative style took inspiration from pop music of the 1960s as well as classical postmodern genres. Moving right through to the present day, the release concludes with works by Artur Avanesov, a young Armenian born in Russia. Keen to avoid stylistic unity, the Feux follets, a work still in progress, comprise a selection of songs with no thread to pull them together, the emphasis – according to the composer – being placed on a collective ‘creative past’.
    The multi-talented Avanesov is the pianist as well as one of the featured composers on this release. Together with mezzo soprano Mariam Sarkissian, a highly acclaimed Russian singer based in France, the duo have carefully selected an enchanting and compelling assortment of songs, giving the listener a fascinating insight into Armenia’s rich cultural tapestry.
    This year’s commemoration of the Armenian Genocide has drawn attention to the rich cultural heritage of this “hidden” country, with its unique language, script and folklore.
    This new recording presents three Armenian composers of three generations.

    The song cycle “Emerald Songs” by Romanos Melikyan is written on words by 8 contemporary Armenian poets, in a spicy Ravelian language inspired by Armenian folk music. Mansuryan is of the same generation and blood group of Schnittke, Gubaidulina, Pärt and Kancheli. Young Avanesov’s piano cycle “Feux follets” is in postmodern style, free and associative.

    Sung with great intensity and feeling for the idiom by Armenian mezzo soprano Mariam Sarkissian, who recently received an “Orphée d’or” for her CD of vocal works by Tchaikovsky and Cui.

  • Arno Babadjanyan - Elegie In Memory of Khachaturian

    3:27

    Arno Babajanian (Armenian: Առնո Բաբաջանյան) (January 22, 1921 – November 11, 1983) was an Armenian composer and pianist during the Soviet era.

    Elegie for piano In Memory of Aram Khachaturian

    A. Nersissian, piano

    Babajanian was born in Yerevan, Armenia. By age 5, his extraordinary musical talent was clearly apparent, and the composer Aram Khachaturian suggested that the boy be given proper music training. Two years later, in 1928 at the age of 7, Babajanian entered the Yerevan State Musical Conservatory. In 1938, he continued his studies in Moscow with Vissarion Shebalin. He later returned to Yerevan, where from 1950–1956 he taught at the conservatory. It was during this period (1952) that he wrote the Piano Trio in f# sharp minor. It received immediate acclaim and was regarded as a masterpiece from the time of its premiere. Subsequently, he undertook concert tours throughout the Soviet Union and Europe. In 1971, he was named a People’s Artist of the Soviet Union. As a composer, Babajanian was active in most genres and even wrote many popular songs in collaboration with the leading poets such as Yevgeny Yevtushenko and Robert Rozhdestvensky among others. Much of Babajanian’s music is rooted in Armenian folk music and folklore. But generally, the way in which he uses Armenian folk music is in the virtuosic style of Rachmaninov and Khachaturian. His later works were influenced by Prokofiev and Bartók. Praised by Dmitri Shostakovich as a brilliant piano teacher, Babajanian was also a noted pianist and often performed his own works in concerts.

  • Música Armenia ultra relajante - Música de Duduk

    3:5:09

    El duduk es un instrumento de viento tradicional de Armenia. Su cuerpo está hecho de madera de damasco, donde se encuentran los agujeros y la boquilla de lengua doble.

    De origen antiguo, el duduk es, sin duda, el instrumento que más fielmente refleja el alma del pueblo armenio.

    Su sonido genera una gran sensibilidad y ha sido incorporado en películas como La última tentación de Cristo, para marcar la melancolía de la pasión. Entre los artistas destacados de este instrumento está Djivan Gasparyan. Desde 2008, el duduk y su música están inscritos en la Lista Representativa del Patrimonio Cultural Inmaterial de la Humanidad, a propuesta de Armenia.

    Música Clásica es un canal dedicado a la música clásica, (Mozart, Beethoven, Vivaldi, Tchaikovsky, Strauss, Bach y todos los demas grandes compositores) y tambien a otros tipos de música como la música relajante, musica instrumental y mucho mas.

    La música clásica o relajante como en el caso de todas las bellas artes, no solo consigue trascender en la emoción humana más universal, sino que es capaz de acercar nuestro espíritu a lo sublime.

    A la música clásica además se le han atribuido efectos terapéuticos que influyen en nuestro cerebro y estado emocional, capaces, por ejemplo, de reducir el estrés o mejorar la concentración.

    Estudios científicos afirman que es capaz de modular nuestro estado anímico conduciéndonos a la alegría, así mismo ha resultado beneficiosa en los postoperatorios que siguen a un trasplante ya que es capaz de reducir la ansiedad, el dolor y las náuseas, influye incluso positivamente en nuestro sistema nervioso parasimpático.

    La música clásica y la relajante son un buen antídoto contra el estrés y es capaz de mejorar nuestro rendimiento. Recientes estudios sobre el conocido “efecto Mozart” atestiguan que escuchar piezas del célebre compositor mejoraría el razonamiento espacio-temporal y la memoria a corto plazo, por lo que también se ha empleado para fomentar el desarrollo cerebral de los niños y de los estudiantes de idiomas, ya que a nivel cognitivo facilita y es muy utilizada en el aprendizaje de nuevos idiomas.

    La música clásica parece a su vez ser capaz de bajar la presión arterial y reducir el estrés y es una herramienta muy útil para combatir el insomnio. Escuchar música clásica antes de dormir propicia no solo una consecución más rápida del sueño, sino que durmamos mejor y más tiempo.

    Si todas los beneficios de escuchar música clásica o relajante aún no te han convencido, piensa quizás en la mejor razón para ello, pasar horas dedicadas al deleite y disfrute de las maravillosas obras maestras que la constituyen.
    NO OLVIDES SUSCRIBIRTE...
    ESPERO QUE TE HAYA GUSTADO..;)
    .
    Música clásica, apta para relajación, meditación, concentración, abrir tu mente, conciliar el sueño y muchas cosas mas.

    The State Youth Orchestra of Armenia was founded in 2005 by conductor Sergey Smbatyan, who is also its artistic director and principal conductor. Young and talented musicians’ maturity to follow the right path of life, diligence and devotion to art have smoothed their way for great stages and rapidly increasing international awards.

  • Stephan Elmas, Piano Concerto No 3

    40:32

    Stephan Elmas, Piano Concerto No. 3 (1900)

    1. Allegro Moderato
    2. Adagio Non Troppo
    3. Vivace

    Armen Babakhanian, piano
    Armenian Philharmonic Orchestra
    Alexandre Siranossian, conductor

    Stéphan Elmas (Armenian: Ստեփան Էլմաս; 1862 – August 11, 1937) was an Armenian composer, pianist and teacher.
    Elmas was born into a family of wealthy entrepreneurs in Smyrna (now İzmir), a city in the Ottoman Empire. It was soon discovered that the little boy was a child prodigy: he began taking piano lessons and writing short piano pieces under the tutelage of a local music teacher, Mr. Moseer, and already at the age of thirteen, the young virtuoso performed an all-Liszt piano recital.

    In July 1879, with the encouragement of his teacher – but against the wishes of his family – Stéphan Elmas left for Weimar, Germany, hoping to audition for Franz Liszt. Here he was able to meet the great master: Liszt advised him to go to Austria and work with Professor Anton Door at the Vienna Conservatory [a.k.a. University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna] and Franz Kremm, the distinguished composer and church musician.

    In Vienna, the seventeen-year-old Stéphan divided his time between studying the piano and composition, making his Vienna debut in 1885: an event which received many accolades in the press. Elmas continued to compose, writing many character pieces, including waltzes, mazurkas, nocturnes and impromptus. He dedicated his 6 Etudes (1881) to Franz Liszt and a number of pieces to Victor Hugo.

    Elmas stayed in contact with Liszt and frequently sought his advice. In 1886, he briefly returned to his native Smyrna to attend his father’s funeral, but returned to Vienna convinced that Europe had much more to offer him. On February 24, 1887, he gave a highly successful recital in Vienna’s Saal Bösendorfer. A busy concert schedule followed, with Elmas scoring artistic triumphs in France, England, Germany, Austria and Italy. He mostly programmed his own works, but also performed Beethoven, Chopin and Schumann.

    During his travels, Elmas became closely acquainted with, among others, the Russian composer and pianist Anton Rubinstein, the French composer Jules Massenet, the French pianist Joseph-Édouard Risler and the French lexicographer Guy de Lusignan. In 1912, he took up permanent residence in Geneva, Switzerland, where he continued to compose, teach and perform. Over time, Elmas became increasingly hard of hearing and grew somewhat of a bitter recluse, cutting himself off from the world.

    Thankfully, he befriended Aimée Rapin (1868–1956), the armless Swiss painter, who nursed and consoled him during these difficult times. Elmas was also haunted by the tragic events of the 1915 Armenian Genocide by the Ottoman Turks. Fortunately, his family was able to escape to Athens following the Great Fire of Smyrna in 1922 which followed the Turkish occupation of the city.

    Stéphan Elmas dictated his memoirs to Krikor-Hagop, a young journalist. His piano, along with his manuscripts and reminiscences, is now housed at the Charents Museum of Literature and Arts of Armenia. The composer died in Geneva and was buried in the city’s Plainpalais cemetery.

    Edgar Hovhannisyan, Hovhannisian or Oganesian (Armenian: Էդգար Հովհաննիսյան; January 14, 1930, Yerevan – December 28, 1998, Yerevan) was an Armenian composer, Professor of Composition at the Yerevan State Conservatory, People's Artist of the USSR (1986).

    Richard Yardumian (Armenian: Ռիչարդ Յարդումյան, April 5, 1917 – August 15, 1985) was an Armenian-American classical music composer.
    Yardumian was born in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the youngest of ten children to Armenian immigrant parents, and began studying the piano at a very early age. His mother, Lucia, was a teacher and organist, and his father, Rev Haig Yardumian, was the founding pastor of the Philadelphia Armenian Evangelical community, which later became the Armenian Martyrs' Congregational Church, now located in Havertown, Pennsylvania.

    Very little has been written about Yardumian's early life, but it is known that his family's household was busy and musical. Elijah Yardumian, a concert pianist and a product of the Curtis Institute, served as a musical mentor to his younger brother Richard, who began composing at age 14 and began a formal study of piano, harmony, theory and counterpoint at age 21. He was only 19 when he wrote his most popular piece, The Armenian Suite.

    This work, later recorded by the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Utah Symphony, the Bournemouth Symphony, and the Singapore Symphony Orchestra, was also used as the signature theme for the Voice of America radio program Behind the Iron Curtain. Yardumian's earlier compositions frequently reflect the Armenian folk songs and religious melodies he was exposed to as a child.

    The Great Depression of the 1930s precluded advanced formal music training for Yardumian, but he continued to progress on his own time. He was a private in the army during World War II when, in 1945, Eugene Ormandy and the Philadelphia Orchestra premiered Desolate City, which marked Yardumian's debut as a composer. This was also the beginning of his long association with Ormandy, which led to several recordings on the Columbia label.

    In 1967, Fordham University, in celebration of its 125th anniversary, commissioned Yardumian to write his mass, Come Creator Spirit, which was premiered at Lincoln Center that year with mezzo-soprano Lili Chookasian. This musically complex piece is now rarely if ever performed, yet it stands as an interesting contribution to the Catholic musical canon, if for no other reason than for its having been penned by a Protestant.

    Hayg Boyadjian, Armenian Suite

    David Oberg, conductor

    Hayg Boyadjian (born 1938) is an American composer of classical music whose work includes art song, chamber music and symphonies. Solo recordings of his compositions have been released by Opus One and Albany Records.

    Boyadjian was born in Paris to Armenian parents and grew up in Buenos Aires, Argentina where the family had emigrated when he was a child. He began his musical studies at the Franz Liszt Conservatory in Buenos Aires before emigrating to the United States in 1958. He settled in Lexington, Massachusetts and continued his musical studies as a special student at the New England Conservatory and later at Brandeis University. In 1980 he received a fellowship to the McDowell Colony. In 1991 he was the first American composer to be invited by the government of the newly independent Armenia to visit the country for rehearsals and performances of his chamber music. He has since visited the country several times for performances of his works. His piano concerto received its world premiere in 2016 in Yerevan to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Armenia's independence.

    Boyadjian is an active amateur astronomer and a member of the Amateur Telescope Makers of Boston. Several of his works, including Perseus (written for flautist Doriot Anthony Dwyer) and Cassiopeia (written for clarinetist Jonathan Cohler), are inspired by constellations. The shape of the notes on the stave for the work's principal motif reflects the shape of the constellation itself.

  • ALEXANDER ARUTIUNIAN - ARNO BABAJANIAN - FESTIVE

    4:32

    Alexander Arutiunian has died at the age of 91 in Yerevan, the city of his birth. If Armenia does not immediately summon up a litany of recognisable Western composers, Arutiunian was, for 60 years, a distinctive and internationally recognised figure from the South Caucasus. Underpinned by the pedagogical traditions of the Soviet era and fuelled by the proud identity of Komitas as the spiritual father of Armenian classical music, Arutiunian’s evocative, resourceful and attractive musical language took flight.
    From his early cantata, Motherland, of 1948 (for which he won the Stalin Prize ahead of Shostakovich) to his final piece in 2011, a flute concerto, Arutiunian explored ways of harnessing intensity of emotion within established classical forms, flavoured variously with regional characteristics. Early works draw on indigenous improvisatory models whilst his opera Sayat-Nova (1967) celebrates the Armenian troubadour (or ‘meistersinger’) in the time-honoured romantic ideal of vernacular minstrelsy. However his catalogue is largely focused on a repertoire of idiomatic instrumental works, most notably well-crafted concertos for all the members of the brass family.
    If there is a single work which captivated audiences and critics alike it was the Violin Concerto, Armenia-88, inspired by the Spitak earthquake of that year, which killed 25,000 people at the height of the Soviet ‘stagnation era’. The concerto reveals Arutiunian at his most profound, personal and coherent. It was described by Joseph Horowitz as a work which ‘overflows with graceful melodic invention, rhythmic vitality, deeply felt emotional intensity and dionysiac exuberance’.
    Yet it is his Trumpet Concerto of 1950 which has established Arutiunian’s name as a durable figure. There is no conservatoire in the world in which this work does not feature perennially in syllabuses, competitions and concert programmes. It is arguably the best-known trumpet concerto after the Haydn and the Hummel. Like those two pioneering works, Arutiunian alights readily on the most naturally vocalised and lyrical qualities of the trumpet whilst also exploiting the instrument’s dynamic articulation in thrilling figuration and a dazzling culminating cadenza.
    Whilst it has been suggested that the work suffers from derivative and nostalgic Russian gestures (including a delightfully Polovtsian middle section), the rich melodic character, taut structure and generosity of spirit have ensured that it remains a central work in the armoury of every self-respecting solo trumpet player. It was most famously recorded by Timofei Dokschitzer with the Bolshoi Theatre Orchestra under Gennadi Rozhdestvensky but since then has been recorded by fine players from Maurice André to Alison Balsom.

    Armen Babakhanian, piano

    Alexandre Siranossian, conductor

    Stéphan Elmas (Armenian: Ստեփան Էլմաս; 1862 – August 11, 1937) was an Armenian composer, pianist and teacher.
    Elmas was born into a family of wealthy entrepreneurs in Smyrna (now İzmir), a city in the Ottoman Empire. It was soon discovered that the little boy was a child prodigy: he began taking piano lessons and writing short piano pieces under the tutelage of a local music teacher, Mr. Moseer, and already at the age of thirteen, the young virtuoso performed an all-Liszt piano recital.

    In July 1879, with the encouragement of his teacher – but against the wishes of his family – Stéphan Elmas left for Weimar, Germany, hoping to audition for Franz Liszt. Here he was able to meet the great master: Liszt advised him to go to Austria and work with Professor Anton Door at the Vienna Conservatory [a.k.a. University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna] and Franz Kremm, the distinguished composer and church musician.

    In Vienna, the seventeen-year-old Stéphan divided his time between studying the piano and composition, making his Vienna debut in 1885: an event which received many accolades in the press. Elmas continued to compose, writing many character pieces, including waltzes, mazurkas, nocturnes and impromptus. He dedicated his 6 Etudes (1881) to Franz Liszt and a number of pieces to Victor Hugo.

    Elmas stayed in contact with Liszt and frequently sought his advice. In 1886, he briefly returned to his native Smyrna to attend his father’s funeral, but returned to Vienna convinced that Europe had much more to offer him. On February 24, 1887, he gave a highly successful recital in Vienna’s Saal Bösendorfer. A busy concert schedule followed, with Elmas scoring artistic triumphs in France, England, Germany, Austria and Italy. He mostly programmed his own works, but also performed Beethoven, Chopin and Schumann.

    During his travels, Elmas became closely acquainted with, among others, the Russian composer and pianist Anton Rubinstein, the French composer Jules Massenet, the French pianist Joseph-Édouard Risler and the French lexicographer Guy de Lusignan. In 1912, he took up permanent residence in Geneva, Switzerland, where he continued to compose, teach and perform. Over time, Elmas became increasingly hard of hearing and grew somewhat of a bitter recluse, cutting himself off from the world.

    Thankfully, he befriended Aimée Rapin (1868–1956), the armless Swiss painter, who nursed and consoled him during these difficult times. Elmas was also haunted by the tragic events of the 1915 Armenian Genocide by the Ottoman Turks. Fortunately, his family was able to escape to Athens following the Great Fire of Smyrna in 1922 which followed the Turkish occupation of the city.

    Stéphan Elmas dictated his memoirs to Krikor-Hagop, a young journalist. His piano, along with his manuscripts and reminiscences, is now housed at the Charents Museum of Literature and Arts of Armenia. The composer died in Geneva and was buried in the city’s Plainpalais cemetery.

    Stephan Elmas, Piano Concerto No. 1 in G-minor (1882)

    1. Allegro maestoso
    2. Larghetto
    3. Allegro animato

    Armen Babakhanian, piano
    Armenian Philharmonic Orchestra
    Alexander Siranossian

    Stéphan Elmas (Armenian: Ստեփան Էլմաս; 1862 – August 11, 1937) was an Armenian composer, pianist and teacher.
    Elmas was born into a family of wealthy entrepreneurs in Smyrna (now İzmir), a city in the Ottoman Empire. It was soon discovered that the little boy was a child prodigy: he began taking piano lessons and writing short piano pieces under the tutelage of a local music teacher, Mr. Moseer, and already at the age of thirteen, the young virtuoso performed an all-Liszt piano recital.

    In July 1879, with the encouragement of his teacher – but against the wishes of his family – Stéphan Elmas left for Weimar, Germany, hoping to audition for Franz Liszt. Here he was able to meet the great master: Liszt advised him to go to Austria and work with Professor Anton Door at the Vienna Conservatory [a.k.a. University of Music and Performing Arts, Vienna] and Franz Kremm, the distinguished composer and church musician.

    In Vienna, the seventeen-year-old Stéphan divided his time between studying the piano and composition, making his Vienna debut in 1885: an event which received many accolades in the press. Elmas continued to compose, writing many character pieces, including waltzes, mazurkas, nocturnes and impromptus. He dedicated his 6 Etudes (1881) to Franz Liszt and a number of pieces to Victor Hugo.

    Elmas stayed in contact with Liszt and frequently sought his advice. In 1886, he briefly returned to his native Smyrna to attend his father’s funeral, but returned to Vienna convinced that Europe had much more to offer him. On February 24, 1887, he gave a highly successful recital in Vienna’s Saal Bösendorfer. A busy concert schedule followed, with Elmas scoring artistic triumphs in France, England, Germany, Austria and Italy. He mostly programmed his own works, but also performed Beethoven, Chopin and Schumann.

    During his travels, Elmas became closely acquainted with, among others, the Russian composer and pianist Anton Rubinstein, the French composer Jules Massenet, the French pianist Joseph-Édouard Risler and the French lexicographer Guy de Lusignan. In 1912, he took up permanent residence in Geneva, Switzerland, where he continued to compose, teach and perform. Over time, Elmas became increasingly hard of hearing and grew somewhat of a bitter recluse, cutting himself off from the world.

    Thankfully, he befriended Aimée Rapin (1868–1956), the armless Swiss painter, who nursed and consoled him during these difficult times. Elmas was also haunted by the tragic events of the 1915 Armenian Genocide by the Ottoman Turks. Fortunately, his family was able to escape to Athens following the Great Fire of Smyrna in 1922 which followed the Turkish occupation of the city.

    Stéphan Elmas dictated his memoirs to Krikor-Hagop, a young journalist. His piano, along with his manuscripts and reminiscences, is now housed at the Charents Museum of Literature and Arts of Armenia. The composer died in Geneva and was buried in the city’s Plainpalais cemetery.

  • Tango Notturno - Isabel Bayrakdarian - Soprano, 2007 !

    3:27

    Isabel Bayrakdarian (born 1974 in Zahle, Lebanon) is a Grammy Award-nominated Armenian-Canadian opera singer.
    More, wikipedia:


    ISABEL BAYRAKDARIAN: TANGO NOTTURNO
    Music of Piazzolla, Gardel, Weill, Gade, et al. Tango Ensemble, Kradjian, piano/arranger. Texts and translations. CBC Records/Les Disques SRC MVCD 1176

    Review written by Joshua Rosenblum:

    Soprano Isabel Bayrakdarian is the latest classical artist to respond to the siren song of the tango with a CD compilation, and it's clear from the opening bars of the first track, Armenian composer Arno Babadjanian's Tcheknagh Yeraz, that we'll be in good hands with her. She sings luxuriantly and passionately, with a richly pulsing mezzo quality in her lower and middle registers and a ringing fullness on top. She also responds with unforced, idiomatic vocal colorings to the demands of the texts and melodies. Her range — dynamic, timbral and dramatic — is impressive at every turn, as is her command of the six languages represented here.

    Nary a track falls flat. Among the standouts are Carlos Gardel's classic Por Una Cabeza and Kurt Weill's sinuous Youkali, to which Bayrakdarian brings equal doses of fire and world-weariness, without sacrificing any vocal luster. Astor Piazzolla's Che Tango Che has a rhythmically fragmented vocal line that reflects the violence of the lyric; Bayrakdarian chews it up gleefully, practically turning the song into a one-act play in the process. Farid El-Atrache's Ya Zahratan Fee Khayali provides an unexpected Middle Eastern take on the tango, one of many examples on the disc of the appeal the form has had for composers worldwide.

    Bayrakdarian is accompanied by the eight-member Tango Ensemble, led by pianist Serouj Kradjian, to whom she happens to be married. Kradjian is responsible for most of the arrangements; others were contributed by the bandoneon player Fabián Carbone, or by the two in collaboration. The arrangements are outstanding and expertly played by the Ensemble. About a third of the tracks are instrumental only, including Jacob Gade's famous Jalousie and two intriguing Piazzolla pieces (Verano Porteño and Invierno Porteño) that pay homage to Vivaldi's Four Seasons. Oblivion, a signature Piazzolla number, is rendered as a haunting vocalise. The title track, Tango Notturno, by Hans-Otto Borgmann, from a film of the same name, could almost be mistaken for Kurt Weill; Bayrakdarian caresses its phrases lovingly and dispenses some teasing rubato. This disc stands up well to repeated listenings; indeed, it's downright habit-forming.

    Composer: Antonio Vivaldi
    Artists: Hanspeter Oggier (pan flute), Ensemble Fratres

    About this Album:
    This recording gathers together some of Vivaldi’s finest and most famous virtuoso flute concertos. Prominent among them are two masterpieces of figurative music: La notte, which evokes the agony of a restless night, populated by ghosts, and then the soothing effect of deep sleep; and Il gardellino, in which the swirling flute mimics the cheerful song of the goldfinch.

    Entrusting the soloist’s part to the pan flutes may seem, at first glance, a bold and unusual approach. However, there are both historical and aesthetic justifications. The panpipes originated from 17th century Europe, notably the Romanian nai, hardly far in place or time from Vivaldi’s Venice. And far from distorting his music, the panpipes lend a bright and warm matching colour to it.

    Artists: Mariam Sarkissian (mezzo-soprano), Fanny Crouet (soprano), Daniel Propper (piano)

    Best-known as the darling of the Parisian operetta audience, reliable facteur of hit after hit such as Orpheus in the Underworld and La vie Parisienne, would-be ‘serious’ composer who never lived to complete or see a staging of his masterpiece, Les contes d’Hoffmann, Jacques Offenbach was a composer of many parts. His practical training as a cellist of accomplishment is recognised, and his work for the instrument holds a fragile place on the fringe of its repertoire (such as the Cello Duets recorded on Brilliant Classics, 94475) but few listeners will have been aware, until now, of the composer’s work in the field of art-song.

    In fact Offenbach wrote songs throughout his career but most of them belong to his late teens, not long after he had moved to the French capital and become a cellist in the orchestra of the Opéra-Comique, and thereafter as a touring cello virtuoso in his 20s. The selection made for this album by the Armenian mezzo-soprano Mariam Sarkissian ranges widely across genres, from the delicious Ronde tyrolienne (of 1838) to the drama-romance Jalousie of the following year. There is a classic German Lied, O bleib bei mir (1840), a more ambitious ballad Rends-moi mon âme (1843), and the recital ends with a self-contained comic duet, Meunière et fermière (Mrs Miller and Mrs Farmer), that Offenbach composed in 1846, at the age of 27.

    Tracklist:

    00:00:00 Jalousie!
    00:03:28 J’aime la reverie
    00:07:43 Sérénade du torero
    00:12:13 Jeanne la rousse

    Ferenc Farkas (15 December 1905 – 10 October 2000) was a Hungarian composer.
    Born into a musical family (his father played the cimbalom and his mother played the piano) in Nagykanizsa, Farkas began his musical studies in Budapest, at the Protestant Gymnasium (Grammar School) and later attended the Music Academy, where he studied composition with Leó Weiner and Albert Siklós.

    After his graduation in 1927, he worked as a repetiteur and conductor at the Municipal Theatre of Budapest and collaborated with the Diaghilev Ballet. From 1929 to 1931, he attended Ottorino Respighi's masterclass at the Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia in Rome. The years he spent in Rome had a decisive influence on him. He became acquainted with Italian and Mediterranean culture to which he felt a deep attraction. About this he said: My principal aim has always been to attain for myself a latin clarity and proportion.

    Farkas returned to Budapest in the autumn of 1931. As he could not find any other assignments, he played the piano in various theatre orchestras. In 1932 he met the director Paul Fejos for whom he composed several film scores, first in Hungary, then in Vienna and Copenhagen. This collaboration was to be for Farkas the beginning of an impressive series of “applied” music (music for around 75 films and 44 theatre plays and radio plays).

    In the spring of 1934 he conducted research of his own into traditional Hungarian music by collecting folk songs in Somogy County: When I got back from my travels abroad, it became clear to me that the work and research of Bartók and Kodály raised crucial problems that we as Hungarians, had to resolve ourselves. .

    From 1935 he taught at the Budapest City Music School. From 1941-44 he was professor of composition and director at the Conservatory of Kolozsvàr (today Cluj-Napoca in Romania) and he conducted the city's Opera Chorus. At the end of 1944, because of the war, he had to go back to Hungary. During the siege of Budapest, he worked as the deputy conductor of the Opera Chorus.

    In 1946, he was sent to Székesfehérvár where he founded and managed the Conservatory. He was nominated professor of composition at the Franz Liszt Music Academy of Budapest in 1949, a post he held until his retirement in 1975. As a professor he was to have his greatest influence in the second half of the century. Among his students were: György Kurtág, György Ligeti, and Miklós Kocsár.
