Bohemian Tales

Augustin Hadelich

July 3, 2020
“Mr. Hadelich increasingly seems to be one of the outstanding violinists of his generation,” wrote The New York Times after Augustin Hadelich played Dvořák’s Violin Concerto under Czech-born Jakub Hrůša’s baton in 2017. Hadelich and Hrůša have now recorded the concerto with the Symphonieorchester des Bayerischen Rundfunks. Bohemian Tales pairs the concerto with works for violin and piano by Dvořák and two other major Czech composers of the late 19th/early 20th centuries, Leos Janáček and Josef Suk. The pianist is Charles Owen.

Beethoven

Ian Bostridge, Antonio Pappano, Vilde Frang, Nicolas Alsteadt
July 24, 2020
At the heart of this program of Beethoven songs performed by Ian Bostridge and Sir Antonio Pappano is the song cycle An die ferne Geliebte (To the distant beloved). Bostridge describes it as “the distillation of Beethoven as lover.” Among the other items are the rapturously lyrical ‘Adelaide’, the somber ‘In questa tomba oscura’ and a selection of Beethoven’s settings of folksongs from the British Isles, which elicit the participation of violinist Vilde Frang and cellist Nicolas Altstaedt. “When we all play together,” says Pappano, “it’s like a family making music at home.”
