CD881: BEETHOVEN Sonata No. 9, op. 47 “Kreutzer”, and FRANCK Violin Sonata in A Major.  The Weiss Duo: Sidney Weiss, Violin; Jeanne Weiss, Piano. UPC 009414788122.   ORDER NOW     

Two of the most vibrant and important violin sonatas in history, played by Sidney Weiss, who has had a long career as concertmaster of major symphony orchestras, including the Chicago Symphony (1967-1972), the Monte Carlo Philharmonic (1973-1979), and the Los Angeles Philharmonic (1979-1994). “The Kreutzer Sonata has all the ingredients of a first-rate performance:the Adagio opens with a blazing cadenza...the ensuing Presto possesses demonic propulsion and stylized glamour. Even more impressive is their Andante con Variazioni movement...the intrinsic balance, bravura technique, and poetic expression. The buoyant energy of the ensemble and its realization of Beethoven’s unfettered spirit make this a rendition to treasure.”  (Audiophile Audition)
      The Weiss Duo has performed extensively in the United States and Europe. They have three other acclaimed CDs on Crystal: CD633: Elgar, Walton, and Strauss Sonatas; CD511: Mendelssohn and Haydn Concertos for Violin, Piano, and Orchestra; and CD835: works by Chausson, Leclair, and Debussy.

CD759: RAINBOW SUNDAE. Westwood Wind Quintet. Trios, Quartets, and Quintet. UPC 009414775924.   ORDER NOW     

Nikolai Tschemberdschi, Concertino for Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, and Bassoon. Joao Guilherme Ripper, Wind Trio for Oboe, Clarinet, and Bassoon. Arthur Berger, Quartet for Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, and Bassoon. Walter Piston, Three Pieces for Flute, Clarinet, and Bassoon. Walter Hartley, Woodwind Quartet for Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, and Bassoon. Martin Scot Kosins, Rainbow Sundae for Woodwind Quintet.

      This CD features some of the most interesting and appealing music for woodwinds from the 20th century. Incorporating different styles, the six works are marvels of woodwind writing. The Tschemberdschi piece is little known but is a wonderful example of Russian composition from the mid-20th century. There is nothing else quite like it for woodwinds. South American beauty and rhythms permeate Ripper’s delightful Trio, and Berger’s Quartet was called “one of the most satisfacotry pieces for winds in the whole modern repertory” by Virgil Thomson. Walter Piston’s Three Pieces is a wonderful trio that deserves more hearings. Walter Hartley is well-known for his marvelous writing for winds. Martin Scot Kosins’ Rainbow Sundae is a very listenable work in the style of his other pieces, some of which have become favorites on Crystal.
      The Westwood Wind Quintet, now in its 54th year, is possibly the most-esteemed wind quintet in the world. Having just released the well-received 12-CD set of the complete 24 Quintets by Anton Reicha, the group has garnered rave reviews from critics and the public for its more than 27 albums, starting with the ground-breaking recording of the Schönberg Wind Quintet on Columbia Records (now Sony), through the Nielsen, Hindemith, Barber, Dahl, etc., Quintets, and now this Rainbow Sundae.

This, volume one, is the 12th and final release of the 24 Reicha Woodwind Quintets. We are pleased that we now have all 24 of the Reicha Woodwind Quintets performed by the Westwood Wind Quintet. This volume has the first two of Reicha’s Quintets, including the most popular op. 88, no. 2. Although the two quintets in this volume are shorter and a bit lighter than the other 22 quintets, they are still masterpieces, symphonic in scope. Opus 88, no. 1 is 21:28 in length. Opus 88, no. 2 is 26:55 in length. They are both mature works, and have Reicha’s signature beautiful melodies, exciting counterpoint, and thrilling allegros. “those who ignore this legacy are missing out not only on some terrific wind music but on some of the finest music ever penned.” (Ritter, Audiophile Audition).  Click here for further information about Reicha and the Westwood Wind Quintet.

The Westwood Wind Quintet has garnered exceptional praise for the series of Reicha Quintets. About a previous volume in the Westwood Wind Quintet’s 12 volume series of the Reicha Woodwind Quintets, the Flutist Quarterly (Pettway) wrote “It is seldom that one comes across a recording that with careful listening displays no major flaws, in performance or engineering. This is such a recording. The players understand the music, each other, their instruments, and how they fit into the mix. The result is simply beautiful ensemble playing.”
