LIVING CONCERT SERIES (LCS)

From the very outset, our main field of activity has been classical music, particularly works for large orchestra, but also solo performers, chamber music and choral works. What they all have in common is that they are always recorded on location in natural spaces. The LIVING CONCERT SERIES embodies in a particular way the basic thinking behind the ACOUSENCE “labelphilosophy“. The audio media of this series are as a rule recorded under live conditions. The natural spontaneity of the concert situation, combined with our well-honed recording techniques, which can communicate those minutest of nuances that are so fundamentally important particularly for the atmosphere and emotional impact, provide you with your own very special "concert experience".

CD22012 DonQuixote b200

 

Richard Strauss (1864-1949): "Don Quixote"

Fantastic Variations on a Theme of Knightly Character, op. 35 (1897)

 
Duisburger Philharmoniker (Duisburg Philharmonic Orchestra)
Jonathan Darlington

 

In one great dramatic arc … appealing and valuable

In Vol. 20 of our LIVING CONCERT SERIES, Jonathan Darlington and the Duisburg Philharmonic again show their special feel for the colour of sound and orchestral balance. In one great dramatic arc, Darlington leads them through the idealized dream world lived out by and inevitably the downfall of the story's hero Don Quixote. But the work is more than a symphonic tone poem and programme music, more than a set of variations and due to the presentation two solo instruments, more than a symphonic concerto. It is the combination of these elements which makes "Don Quixote" so incredibly appealing and valuable.

CD21912_BrahmsK2_b200

 
Johannes Brahms (1833-1897):
Concerto for Piano and Orchestra No. 2
in B-flat major, Op. 83 (1881)

 

 

A stunningly beautiful musical gem

Jonathan Darlington together with the Duisburg Philharmonics has already shown in many productions at ACOUSENCE how he is capable of enriching his interpretations in the special atmosphere of playing in front of an audience with unique musical moments. With Anna Malikova, now a soloist directly speaking the same musical language meets this constellation, who at the same time with ease bests the demands of Brahms’ Second Piano Concerto - the perfect foundation for a recording of this magnificent piece with the dimension of a symphony and a complex solo part, heavily intertwined with the orchestra. The result is a striking recording, flowing exquisitely relaxed, yet played powerfully, with a firm grasp of the sensibility of the music and the closeness of the concert performance. Brahms’ big piano concerto in four movements - completely in the spirit of our philosophy and especially of the LIVING CONCERT SERIES.

La Mer
Three symphonic sketches (1903-05)

Duisburger Philharmoniker (Duisburg Philharmonic Orchestra)
Jonathan Darlington

 

Jonathan Darlington interprets the two key works of the twentieth century in an enthralling live recording

The Duisburg Philharmonics on this album present two key works of the twentieth century united - and Jonathan Darlington once again creates a most exciting live recording with a dense atmosphere, which promises over one hour of stirring "concert experience".

Even though less than a decade separates the premieres of Claude Debussy’s orchestral work in three parts "La Mer" and Igor Stravinsky’s "Le Sacre du Printemps", these two works could hardly be any more different. While Stravinsky’s "Le Sacre du Printemps", following the clear specifications of a ballet scenario, appears almost unsettling with its elementary rhythms and powerful orchestral colours, "La Mer" appears much more "in flow" - it is inspired by the less visually predetermined perceptions, which the sea and nature brought forth in Debussy.

CD21610_Espana_b200

 

Emmanuel Chabrier (1841-1894):
España, Rhapsody for Orchestra

Joaquín Turina (1882-1949):
Danzas Fantásticas, Op. 22

Manuel de Falla (1876-1946):

Anhaltische Philharmonie Dessau
Antony Hermus

 

A varied programme of Spanish and South American works, which are seldom heard in this combination.

Antony Hermus continues his long-standing collaboration with ACOUSENCE with his new orchestra as well, the Anhaltische Philharmonie Dessau, and as an upbeat presents a very attractive programme, which can only seldom be heard in this combination.

Well-knows works from Spain, like Chabrier’s "España" and Rodigro’s famous Guitar Concerto - with Marlon Titre at the guitar, but also rarely performed but nonetheless equally interesting works such as Turina’s "Danzas fantásticas" and many more, promise an entertaining fervent Spanish "concert evening".

Concerto for Violin and Orchestra

D major Op. 35 (1878)

Susanna Yoko Henkel, violin

Duisburger Philharmoniker (Duisburg Philharmonic Orchestra)
Jonathan Darlington

 

Susanna Yoko Henkel belongs to the leading violinists of the young generation. The most recent recording combines the enchanting atmosphere of a live performance with a multi-faceted interpretation and skillful adaptation. One seldom hears such a subtle detailed presentation, along with a firm sense for the large musical arches. Energy and a terrific tone, paired with technical brilliance promise the highest possible listening pleasure.
