31 January 2021 | Marina Chiche | France Musique - podcast | Cordes sensibles | Hommage à Jean Ter-Merguerian    Superbe virtuose, Jean Ter-Merguerian était un violoniste dont le jeu alliait couleur et expression. Nous l’écoutons dans des oeuvres de Khatchatourian, Brahms et Sarasate. Un coffret de ses enregistrements de concerts est récemment paru (Rhine Classics RH-016).  Dire que Jean Ter-Merguerian était élève de David Oistrakh ne résume pas son jeu, il n’avait rien d’un clone du grand maitre soviétique. Sa version du concerto de Khatchatourian, qu’il avait joué sous la direction du compositeur, est exceptionnelle. Il mettait sa virtuosité au service de la plus grande expressivité. De plus, il avait une véritable science des doigtés et une palette infinie de couleurs sonores.

26 January 2021 | Christoph Schlüren YouTube channel | VIDEO | Reviewing Franco Gulli Anthology Rhine Classics (RH-005 | incl. Ghedini, Celibidache, Schoeck, Busoni)   Christoph Schlüren stellt die unter Umgehung der restriktiven EU-Copyrights in Taiwan hergestellte und von Rhine Classics direkt beziehbare 11-CD-Box 'Franco Gulli ReDiscovered' vor, auf welcher dieser überragende italienische Geiger des 20. Jahrhunderts u.a. mit Konzerten von Beethoven (Op. 61 und Tripelkonzert), Bach, Mozart, Paganini (Nr. 1, 2, und 5), Bartók (Nr. 2), Busoni, Schoeck, Prokofiev (Nr. 1), Lalo (Symphonie espagnole) sowie dem großen italienischen Meister Giorgio Federico Ghedini (1892-1965; Divertimento in Re maggiore und Contrappunti per tre archi e orchestra [mit seinen Triofreunden Bruno Giuranna und Giacinto Caramia]) zu hören ist. Aufnahmen von einsamer Klasse, wie auch die Kammermusik, die er überwiegend mit seiner Frau, der Pianistin Enrica Cavallo aufgenommen hat: beide Busoni-Sonaten, Ned Rorem, Debussy Sonate, Chausson (Concert und Poème), Bloch, Ravel, Vieuxtemps, Mozart, Schubert, Respighi (Sonate) und Bachs Chaconne. An Dirigenten wirken neben Sergiu Celibidache Ernest Bour, Ferdinand Leitner, Lovro von Matacic, Mario Rossi, Nino Sanzogno, Aldo Ceccato, Massimo Pradella etc. mit. Einen besonderen Schwerpunkt bildet dabei Ghedini, ein Komponist, den jeder kennen sollte und noch kaum jemand kennt. Die vom italienischen Geigerpapst Emilio Pessina zusammengestellte, klanglich phänomenal aufbereitete und produzierte Box ist von unbezahlbarer Qualität, und dies zu einem erstaunlich freundlichen Preis. Nicht nur für Geiger eine unbedingte Empfehlung.

Christoph Schlüren presents the 11-CD box 'Franco Gulli ReDiscovered', produced in Taiwan and directly available from Rhine Classics, on which this outstanding Italian violinist of the 20th century, among others with concerts by Beethoven (Op. 61 and Triple Concerto), Bach, Mozart, Paganini (No. 1, 2, and 5), Bartók (No. 2), Busoni, Schoeck, Prokofiev (No. 1), Lalo (Symphonie espagnole ) as well as the great Italian master Giorgio Federico Ghedini (1892-1965; Divertimento in Re maggiore and Contrappunti per tre archi e orchestra - with his trio friends Bruno Giuranna and Giacinto Caramia-). Recordings of a lonely class, as well as the chamber music, which he recorded mainly with his wife, the pianist Enrica Cavallo: both Busoni sonatas, Ned Rorem, Debussy sonatas, Chausson (Concert and Poème), Bloch, Ravel, Vieuxtemps, Mozart, Schubert, Respighi (Sonata) and Bach's Chaconne. In addition to Sergiu Celibidache, Ernest Bour, Ferdinand Leitner, Lovro von Matacic, Mario Rossi, Nino Sanzogno, Aldo Ceccato, Massimo Pradella etc. also work on conductors. A special focus is Ghedini, a composer everyone should know and hardly anyone knows. The box, put together and produced by the Italian "violin-expert" Emilio Pessina, with a phenomenal sound, is of priceless quality, and at an amazingly affordable price. An absolute recommendation not only for violinists.

15 June 2017 | Norbert Hornig | Deutschlandfunk (German Radio) - broadcast | Historische Aufnahmen | Belcanto und virtuoses Feuer | Der Geiger Aldo Ferraresi    Man nannte ihn den „Gigli der Violine“, dennoch ist der Name Aldo Ferraresi heute kaum mehr ein Begriff. Ferraresi, 1902 in Ferrara geboren, gehörte zu den bedeutendsten italienischen Geigern des 20. Jahrhunderts. Auf Empfehlung von Jan Kubelik studierte er noch bei Eugène Ysaye, der ihn als einen seiner besten Schüler bezeichnete. Ferraresi profilierte sich als Konzertmeister, Kammermusiker und Solist. Er konzertierte in vielen Ländern Europas, in Russland und den USA mit namhaften Dirigenten wie Hermann Scherchen, Hans Knappertsbusch, Artur Rodzinski und Carlo Maria Giulini. Auch als Violinpädagoge machte sich Ferraresi einen Namen, in späteren Jahren unterrichtete er am Konservatorium Niccolò Piccinni in Bari, das von Nino Rota geleitet wurde. Erst jetzt wird das diskografische Vermächtnis des Geigers wiederentdeckt. / He was called the "Gigli of the Violin", but the name Aldo Ferraresi is hardly remembered today. Ferraresi, born in Ferrara in 1902, was one of the most important Italian violinists of the XXth Century. On the recommendation of Jan Kubelik, he studied with Eugène Ysaye, who described him as one of his best students. Ferraresi made a name for himself as a concert master, chamber musician and soloist. He has given concerts in many European countries, in Russia and the USA with well-known conductors such as Hermann Scherchen, Hans Knappertsbusch, Artur Rodzinski and Carlo Maria Giulini. Ferraresi also made a name for himself as a violin teacher, in later years he taught at the Niccolò Piccinni Conservatory in Bari, which was headed by Nino Rota. Only now his recorded legacy has been rediscovered. [DE / EN subtitles]
