a passionate commitment to keep connecting

You know those diary columns penned by socialites that drip with name-dropping? Well, here’s mine. For what a month I’ve had. To highlight just a few A-list artists: I’ve popped in to some of pianist Igor Levit’s daily house concerts; stopped by cellist Alisa Weilerstein’s place where she’s been playing the Bach Suites, one movement per day; and few hosts have proved quite as debonair as violinist Daniel Hope (and few living rooms proved quite so stylish), whose home has become a hangout for the most impressive of chamber music soirées, Hope@Home. Of course in reality (and before anyone reports me to the authorities) I’ve barely brushed the borders of my postcode for more than a month now. All the above has been made possible by the passionate commitment of artists…

this month’s contributors

‘It seems like it was a different world in which I met Piotr Becza›a, at the buzzing Staatsoper in Vienna,’ says HUGO SHIRLEY who interviews the gregarious tenor about his new verismo album this issue. ‘It was fascinating to talk technique and repertoire with a singer who loves what he does.’ ‘It is always a great pleasure for me to get my thoughts in order about a great string player of the past,’ says TULLY POTTER who writes this month’s Icons feature. ‘A violinist such as Arthur Grumiaux almost writes the piece himself, so closely is his playing aligned with his memorable personality.’ ‘I have admired Vyacheslav Artyomov’s music ever since a chance encounter in a CD shop in Brussels 20 years ago,’ says our Contemporary Composers author GUY RICKARDS.…

gramophone editor’s choice

Martin Cullingford’s pick of the finest recordings from this month’s reviews ELGAR Violin Concerto Nicola Benedetti vn London Philharmonic Orchestra / Vladimir Jurowski Decca One of today’s top ambassadors for music off the platform, Nicola Benedetti is an equally inspiring one on it, her playing embracing Elgar’s emotional depths. REVIEW ON PAGE 33 TELEMANN ‘La querelleuse’ The Counterpoints Etcetera This is a sparkling debut album, chamber and solo Telemann works alike – in a programme that speaks of real creative care – are all performed with life-affirming relish and flair. REVIEW ON PAGE 47 BEETHOVEN An die ferne Geliebte SCHUBERT Schwanengesang Roderick Williams bar Iain Burnside pf Chandos The excellent Roderick Williams’s ability to convey meaning with a personal touch makes for a memorable Schwanengesang.

for the record

Lynn Harrell, who successfully made the leap from orchestral musician to top-flight soloist, has died at the age of 76. He was born in New York into a musical family: his father was the baritone Mack Harrell and his mother, Marjorie McAlister Fulton, a violinist. He studied at Juilliard (with Leonard Rose) and at Curtis (with Orlando Cole). His parents both died when Harrell was young: his father in 1960 when Lynn was 15, and his mother in 1962 when he was 18. In an interview with Andrew Stewart in Gramophone in May 1994, he talked about his father’s influence: ‘My father was a great singer, but I wasn’t aware of that until after he died. But then I would play along with, study and listen to small snippets of his…

learn music at home with the stars

With families confined to home, parents have turned to the web to find music education for their children (or even for themselves!). Among these, BBC Ten Pieces – the long-running programme introducing children to classical music – launched ‘Ten Pieces at Home’, a 10-week series offering a new weekly film and activity based around a classical work. Children can sing a section of Sibelius’s Finlandia alongside the BBC Singers, learn from BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra players in interactive musical activities, or take inspiration from Elgar’s Enigma Variations in ‘Music Memories’. For details, visit bbc.co.uk/teach/ten-pieces More Elgar comes from violinist and leading classical music ambassador Nicola Benedetti, who set young players the challenge of learning Salut d’amour through a week of daily online lessons. What better complement could there be to her Editor’s…

the counterpoints

When the recorder player Thomas Triesschijn and harpsichordist Aljosja Mietus formed a duo in their student days at the Royal Conservatoire The Hague – including self-releasing a Bach disc in 2015 – they were already envisaging a larger ensemble. With the violinist Matthea de Muynck and cellist Petr Hamouz they formed The Counterpoints, a core of musicians they imagined could expand depending on the repertoire. Following success at the York Early Music Young Artists’ Competition and the Göttingen Händel Competition, they have issued their first recording – a Telemann album called La Querelleuse, which traces the composer’s ‘quarrels’ with different national styles and the resultant stylistic mix found in his trio sonatas (see Mark Seow’s review on page 47). All four musicians work regularly with leading period-instrument orchestras, including Les Talens…
