Since its re-discovery in 1949, The Four Seasons" by Vivaldi have been recorded many times and are one of the most frequently played classical works. Therefore we were always reluctant to add another to the very many already published CD’s.
However, many of our loyal listeners asked us for our own version. We gladly obliged and since we have with Davide Toso an excellent musician from Vivaldi's Venetian home within our illustrious ranks, who has this specific musical language in his blood, we believe to add a strong personal and exciting interpretation to the general Vivaldi choir of recordings.

In 1926 the musicologist Alberto Gentili discovered a wealth of unpublis­hed and previously unknown original manuscripts by Vivaldi in a convent in Alessandria, Italy. All of the newly discovered works, together with all the other works of Vivaldi's unpublished in his lifetime have been catalogued by Peter Ryom and bear an "R" number.
Among these are the three 'Piccolo Concertos' heard on this recording- the only known works Vivaldi composed for his smallest and most agile mem­ber of the orchestra family. The dates of composition cannot be established with certainty.

The instrument which Vivaldi knew, the sopranino recorder, bears impor­tant differences to the modern Boehm piccolo:
The recorder is inserted bet­ween the lips and played vertically, the piccolo rests on the lower lip and is played transversely; the recorder had simple holes where the piccolo has silver keys and a modern scale allowing all chromatic possibilities.
The instrument played by Mr. Schubert in this recording was crafted from grenadilla wood (body) and sterling silver (mechanism) by Philipp Hammig, Markneukirchen, East Germany, in 1990.

A note on this performance: Volker Hartung and the Cologne New Philharmonic revel in the progress achieved in instrumental craftmanship over the last centuries and per­form with all the vigor and vitality modern instruments allow, as in the words of the great english composer Ralph Vaughn Williams, who once wrote:
'It is well known, that Bach and Vivaldi were dissatisfied with their orchestra's resources and were often obliged to put up, with what they could get. I believe, it is our privilege and our duty, to use all the improved mechanisms invented by our instrument makers to do full justice to their immortal works'

Four fabulous Solo Concertos by Johann Sebastian Bach and his son Carl Philip Emmanuel are the content of this album.The E Minor Flute Concerto by J.S.Bach BWV 1059 has been retrieved from a short fragment by the composer, which presents a slightly edited version of Cantata overtures resembling its main themes.
The result presents another great and highly welcomed solo work of J.S. Bach for the flutists, in addition to the Orchestral Suite no.2 in b minor.The famous double concerto in D minor for 2 violins represents one of the most popular works of the solo repertory.
The Piano Concerto in D Minor is the most famous of Bach numerous concertos for the harpsichord and one of his greatest works. C.P.E. Bach was his father’s true successor, an important figure in the music world of his time and the leading composer of the early Classical period. His three cello concertos (Wq. 170–172), and especially the one in A Major are cornerstones of that instrument's repertoire.
This album consists of fascinating readings by the soloists and the Cologne New Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Volker Hartung.

Remastered in HD 24bit/ 48khz

This Album celebrates the Magic of the Spanish South set to mesmerizing Music by Maurice Ravel, Georges Bizet and Manuel de Falla. De Falla' s wonderful impressions 'Nights in the Gardens of Spain' for piano and orchestra evoke the feelings of the composer when he visited the Arabian Palaces in Andalusia, in Granada and Cordoba. Italian pianist Filippo Faes gives a delightful and most sensitive performance.
De Fallas ballet score 'El amor brujo (Love, the Magician)', sang by the great mezzo-soprano Dora Brockmann is distinctively Andalusian in character with the songs in the Andalusian Spanish dialect of the Gypsies.
The music contains moments of remarkable beauty and originality.

The Carmen Suites are two suites of orchestral music drawn from the music of Georges Bizet's 1875 famous opera 'Carmen'. This recording provides a selection of the best pieces from both suites. Bolero, is Ravel's most famous musical composition and was originally written as a ballet score, but is now usually played as a concert piece. The composition was a sensational success when it was premiered at the Paris Opéra in 1928 and has become world-famous since then. This album contains the slowest, yet powerful rendition of this work on record by Volker Hartung and his Cologne New Philharmonic Orchestra.

Maurice Ravel's Bolero, Georges Bizet's Carmen Suite, Manuel de Falla's Ballet 'El amor brujo' and his piano concerto 'Nights in the Gardens of Spain ' - these late romantic masterworks are presented here in a fabulous recording by Volker Hartung and his Cologne New Philharmonic Orchestra. Italian pianist Filippo Faes gives one of the greatest readings on record of de Falla's impressions of Andalusia.

A great album not to be missed - remastered in 24bit/ 48khz and presented in fantastic sound.

Mastered in 24bit/48khz

Ludwig van Beethoven was perhaps the first self-certain individual in modern times and his work the musical embodiment and fulfilment of political revolution. Beethoven began his composing career with the creation of chamber works. His Septet Op 20 in E flat Major op. 20 for Clarinet, Horn, Bassoon, Violin, Viola, Cello and Double Bass was an instant great success in Vienna of 1799 and became one of the most popular works of Beethoven, witnessed numerous editions soon as well as arrangements for different instruments by the composer himself.
Conductor Volker Hartung thought to get a better dynamic balance between the strong wind instruments and the few strings in expanding this section. He uses the full string section of the orchestra, without changing the composition. On this album Maestro Hartung and the musicians from the Saint Petersburg Academic Philharmonic Orchestra are performing with 10 Violins, 5 Violas, 5 Celli and 3 Double Basses for their new recording of Beethoven's masterpiece with the advantages of modern high-end sound recording technologies in 24bit/48kHz HD-Audio.

During a journey to Prague Beethoven wrote four pieces for Mandolin and Piano for Comtesse Josephine von Clary-Aldringen, a well-known singer and mandolin player.
Miltos Mumulides, principal Clarinetist of the Cologne New Philharmonic, arranged the present version for clarinet and string orchestra. It keeps closely to the original and is written in the original key. The elegant work is a shining little jewel, full of humor, with deep emotions in the minor variation ideally suited for the register of the clarinet and brilliantly performed soloist and orchestra!

Glory and Splendor of the age of Royal Baroque music is celebrated in this album by the Cologne New Philharmonic Orchestra conducted by Volker Hartung.
George Frederic Handel’s „Music for the Royal Fireworks“ is a work of gigantic proportions
It was composed in 1748 for a fireworks display inspired by political events. The British King George II wanted a huge celebration with great fireworks and music on occasion of the Aachen peace treaty in October 1748.
The splendid and delightful Harp Concerto in B major is an original work by Handel and one of his most beautiful works, brilliantly performed by great German harpist Konstanze Jarczyk. Conductor Volker Hartung takes his violin as soloist in this passionate reading ofJ.S. Bach's Violin Concerto no.1 in A minor.
Johann Pachelbel’s famous Canon, the „Air“ from Bachs 3rd Overture Orchestra as well as a highly virtuoso performance of the „Badinerie“ by flutist Michael Schubert are concluding this beautiful album.

The Cologne New Philharmonic Orchestra and Maestro Hartung are celebrating the genius of Gioachino Rossini, the most celebrated Opera Composer of all times.
His music sounds as Champagne sparkles!
Besides overtures to his famous operas Barber of Seville, The Italian in Alger, La Cenerentola and William Tell, this album contains instrumental works from his earliest days: Rossini wrote his sonatas for strings when he was just 12 years old. On this album Serbian flute virtuoso Dejan Gavric performs one of these joyful pieces together with the fabulous strings of the Cologne New Philharmonic.
With 18 years Rossini composed „Variations for Clarinet and small orchestra“. This work sounds like a coloratura aria for the clarinet and gives the soloist great opportunity to prove his virtuosic talents, as Greek clarinetist Miltos Mumulides shows brilliantly!

On a beautiful day, amid elegantly dressed bystanders, Johannes Brahms is waiting at Vienna’s Northwest-Railway Station for the Steam Train to leave on a journey to Berlin, Leipzig or Hanover, where he will give concerts with some of his works. One would love to be among the crowd, just to feel the flair of these great times…
Since its world premiere in Vienna on December 30, 1877, with Hans Richter conducting, the Second Symphony has become one of Brahms´ most popular works, a bright and buoyant piece, full of sunshine and good cheer.
Listen to Volker Hartung and his Cologne New Philharmonic’s brilliant performance of this masterpiece recorded at Laeiszhalle in Hamburg, Germany.
The String Sextet No. 1 in B flat major was composed in 1860 by Johannes Brahms and premiered in Hanover by an ensemble led by his friend Joseph Joachim. The sextet is scored for two violins, two violas, and two cellos. The Chamber ensemble of the Cologne New Philharmonic, including Volker Hartung at the Viola performed this work at the great acoustics of Cologne’s 11th-century Romanesque church St. Mary's in the Capitol.
Here is the beautiful recording!

Mozart was probably the only composer in music history who created masterpieces in all genres of composition of his time, which he was proud of.
He created in his music a unique combination of the seemingly easy, catchy, with the musically difficult and demanding.
Mozart loved singing, the human voice, he used it as an instrument of musical expression, and she dominated his compositional work from beginning to end. Vocal works occupy a central place in his overall oeuvre, and this is certainly not due solely to the outward circumstance that the most direct and “easiest" way to fame was for a composer in Mozart's time to write operas.
His outstanding quality of expressing the finest emotions in a generally understandable manner through his unique musical language make him the most popular composer of all time.
In his last work, the unfinished Requiem, he created a final, overwhelmingly beautiful masterpiece - his own funeral mass, the composition during which he died in December 1791.
“The most important aspect of his music is not in the notes”, wrote Gustav Mahler.
Volker Hartung and his musicians are presenting a masterful and highly dramatic presentation of the work, which you can listen to and download in HD audio on all media platforms.

Frederic Chopin composed his wonderful E minor Piano Concerto in Paris, when he was 20 years old. For the first performance he was accompanied by a string quartet, before orchestrating it for grand orchestra and piano. On this album Slovenian pianist Natasha Majer and conductor Volker Hartung recreate this original version using a string orchestra setting consisting of players by the Cologne New Philharmonic.

The result is a beautifully balanced sound in a fascinating interpretation, recorded in the great acoustics of Hamburg’s Laeisz

Italian pianist Filippo Faes gives a lyrical interpretation to Tchaikovsky’s piano concert. Instead of the usual bravura interpretation of the First Concerto the soloist and Volker Hartung honour Tchaikovsky as lyricist and perform this work based on the way this masterpiece was apparently performed in his lifetime. Together they favour a sweetly lyrical approach, more leisurely tempos, in elegant, yet brilliant manner. Recorded in the lush acoustics of Amsterdam’s Concertgebouw, they strive to maintain long phrasings at all costs, thereby bringing out the vocal and operatic qualities in Tchaikovsky’s music.
