Joshua Bell (violin/director)
Academy of St. Martin in the Fields

A new Sony Classical release from Grammy Award-winning violinist Joshua Bell showcases two masterpieces from romantic composer Max Bruch. The album features Bell's first recording of the virtuosic Scottish Fantasy as well as a new recording of the Violin Concerto No. 1 in G minor, which he first recorded over thirty years ago with the Academy of St Martin in the Fields and Sir Neville Marriner. Now, as Music Director of the Academy, Bell both performs and directs the orchestra and offers a fresh take on the Bruch Concerto in addition to a thrilling performance of the Scottish Fantasy. In recent years, the Scottish Fantasy has become a favourite performance piece for Bell and his affection for the piece runs deep and with good reason: “My father's descendants were from Scotland, and I grew up hearing stories about how my great- grandfather and great-great-grandfather fought in the Black Watch in Scotland. My dad was proud of his Scottish heritage, and this connection makes the melodies in Bruch's Scottish Fantasy even more meaningful to me.” The Fantasy bristles with the snap and lilt of Scottish folk songs and Bell goes on to say “It is one of the most beautiful and touching pieces I know, and so brilliantly orchestrated. It is a unique 'concerto,' not following the traditional three-movement form. Each of its four movements tells a story.”

Bell recalls how Bruch's ever-popular Violin Concerto No.1 was the first major concerto he learned as an 11-year-old. “This piece is connected to so many memories!” Bell mentions that the great nineteenth-century violinist, Joseph Joachim, who figured prominently in Bell's recent Sony Classical release, For the Love of Brahms, placed Bruch's concerto in the same league as those of Beethoven, Brahms, and Mendelssohn and called it “the most seductive of violin concertos.” Bell says, “It is a huge audience favorite because it is so rich and lush. It has excitement, power, passion, and intimacy--it's got everything!” “Now after more than thirty years of performing this concerto and with a variety of conductors, I am still inspired by the work, and I continue to find myself exploring fresh ideas and new possibilities for expression. As Music Director, I now have the opportunity to conduct while playing the solo part and it actually brings a whole new dimension to this piece. The Academy of St Martin in the Fields has become my musical family over the past decade, and I feel we have special chemistry!'

Nils Mönkemeyer has been hailed as one of the leading violists of his generation. For this recording, Nils has selected four of his favourite works by Walton, Bruch and Pärt and is joined by the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Markus Poschner. The Viola Concerto by Sir William Walton (1902-1983) showcases traditional English tone, enhanced by the sounds and rhythms of jazz. The German composer Max Bruch (1838-1920) is represented by two Romantic works, Kol nidrei, the original cello part of which acquires a unique timbre in Nils Mönkemeyer's arrangement for the viola, and the Romance for viola and orchestra. The fourth and final major work included here is Fratres by Arvo Pärt (*1935). Although published in 1977, it had to wait until 2008 to be heard in its version for viola, string orchestra and percussion.

Leonard hou van honde. Hy weet alles oor hulle. Hy ken al die soorte en weet of hulle spits ore of slap ore het. Wanneer Leonard sê: 'Dis nie 'n worshond nie!', dan is dit ook nie een nie. Natuurlik weet Leonard ook dat hulle almal skerp tande het. En dit is 'n probleem. Maar wat sal gebeur as Leonard op 'n dag wakker word en self 'n hond is?

Dat kinders vroeër of later prontuit vrae oor die dood sal vra, is iets waarvan elke ouer deeglik bewus is. Nietemin is die antwoorde selde prontuit of sonder eufemistiese kinkels wanneer dié vrae wel ter tafel kom. 'Kindervriendelike' boeke oor die dood bestaan wel - maar die natuurlikheid en openlikheid waarmee hierdie onlosmaaklike aspek van die mens se bestaan in Eend, Dood en Tulp hanteer word, is binne die Afrikaanse lesersraamwerk geheel en al vernuwend.

Max Bruch (1838-1920) was born in Cologne and is remembered mostly for his first Violin Concerto with an extremely beautiful slow movement written in 1868 and his Scottish Fantasy, also for Violin and orchestra, dating from 1880 is increasing in popularity. His music, whilst it has echoes of Mendelssohn and Schumann, foreshadows Bruckner and the late German Romantics. It is therefore most useful to have a collection of his three symphonies to help us assess of the development of the Symphony in the later half of the nineteenth century. The first dates from the same year as the famous Violin Concerto and was dedicated to Brahms who was Bruch's elder by five years, the second from four years later. The last had its premiere in 1882 in New York whilst the composer was nearing the end of an unhappy three years as music director of the Liverpool Philharmonic Society. The set is completed by recordings making their first appearance on CD, firstly the Concerto for two pianos which it is believed to date from 1911 (it does not appear in the list of works as part of the article in the New Grove Dictionary of Music and Musicians published in 1980) and secondly two sets of piano works dating from when Bruch was in his early twenties.
