D'Orphée aux Enfers


Critics' Survey 2019 by Fono Forum: Which five CDs have impressed you most in the past year? Manuel Brug's choice:

The new CD of the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin and conductor Howard Griffiths with the Musique symphonique et ballets d'Orphée aux Enfers by Jacques Offenbach was recorded in March 2019 in the large broadcast hall of the Haus des Rundfunks Berlin.

Kevin Clarke (Operetta Research Center 29 August, 2019) writes in Dangerous when wet: "The must-have item on this new album, however, is music that was only recently discovered, composed by Offenbach as a later extra alteration of the 1874 version. (...)'s a treat I enjoyed very much."

Diapason d'Or


The Seven Last Words of Christ on the Cross

The recording of the new CD by Ensemble Resonance and Riccardo Minasi was realised with PARRY AUDIO mobile equipment in St. Nikolai, Harvestehude.

Diapason d'Or juin 2019 - N°680, Jean-Luc Macia:

"TECHNIQUE : 4/5 Enregistré en juillet 2018 à la Haupkirche St. Nikolai de Hambourg (Allemagne) par Karola Parry. Un bel espace sonore aéré. Le temps de réverbération assez long ne vient pas contrarier la définition de l'image dans son ensemble et apporte une belle homogénéité aux couleurs orchestrales."
"Aufgenommen im Juli 2018 in der Haupkirche St. Nikolai in Hamburg von Karola Parry. Ein schöner luftiger Klangraum. Die Nachhallzeit genau lang genug,
um nicht in das Klangbild im Ganzen einzugreifen, sie bringt eine schöne Homogenität in die Orchesterfarben."

David Threasher - Gramophone, May 2019:

"...the original orchestral score comes out far less often than the solo and chamber versions, so this new recording from Ensemble Resonanz is doubly welcome. First, because of the chance it offers to relish this rarity from Haydn's high maturity as a symphonist. Second, because of the finely nuanced performance it receives. The strings have a particular sparkle as captured within the stonework of a reasonably spacious Hamburg church, while the woodwind offer consoling balm..."
