Aurélien Pontier:
Vienna - Joyful Apocalypse



This album is dedicated to the last years of Imperial Vienna, and is dominated by waltzes such as virtuoso Strauss transcriptions and Ravel's La Valse. “A veritable musical metaphor for the suicide of Europe that was the Great War, both apotheosis and apocalypse. We also hear evocations of Schubert, Liszt, Mahler and Kreisler, all imbued with a kind of nostalgia that belongs only to this mythical city.”

Mozart – Piano Works 1



Pianist Kun-woo Paik has released his first-ever Mozart album, the first part of a planned trilogy. Featuring Sonatas 12 & 16 and several other works, it marks a significant departure from Paik's usual repertoire, as he has never recorded Mozart before despite a 68-year-long career, and an extensive discography of more than 30 albums.

Reed Tetzloff:
Beethoven – Piano Concertos 4 & 5



"The impossibly tender solo piano opening of Beethoven’s Fourth Concerto has haunted me from my childhood. I immediately knew that G major chord was different: within its introspection lay a power that could calm the whole world... I came to the Fifth Concerto later in life, but it occupies an equally special place in my heart… Here is a vast drama, where the valiant soloist singularly leads the orchestra into battle." (Reed Tetzloff)

Vardan Mamikonian:
Invitation à la Danse



Vardan Mamikonian devotes this album to pieces linked to the art of dance from different eras and cultures. "Dance has always been a source of entertainment and joy, but it can also represent more sombre occasions, with pomp and grandeur. The Chaconne, for example, has become both tragic and sublime over time... Chopin's Mazurkas can be rustic and folkloric, haunting or lyrical, even dramatic. In short, dance can express diametric opposites and unite those opposites at the same time."
