“Everything Lawrence Brownlee touches with his sterling tenor springs to expressive life. His timbre is honeyed, and he phrases with exceptional discernment and vibrancy. And, to say the least, Brownlee has the technical prowess needed to tame the acrobatic beasts in the Rossini arias on his newest recording. The eight arias he performs with the Kaunas City Symphony Orchestra and conductor Constantine Orbelian are prime bel canto challenges in which only a select number of singers find success. At one moment, Rossini spins long lines requiring utmost control of breath and nuance. Then there are those wild flights full of scales, florid passages and fearsome jumps to the heights. Brownlee never sounds ruffled by the obstacles. … Brownlee caresses lyrical phrases and elegantly conveys each character’s emotional circumstance. … All told, it’s a pleasurable excursion in the realm of Rossinian delights, with Orbelian and the Kaunas musicians serving as deft collaborators.” —Donald Rosenberg, Gramophone Magazine

Strings Magazine contributor Shelton Clark has a wonderful new interview and feature on Tracy Silverman and his new Delos recording, Between the Kiss and the Chaos at allthingsstrings.com:
“Having debuted new works by composers John Adams and Terry Riley in recent years, six-string electric violinist Tracy Silverman focuses on his own compositions on his recent album Between the Kiss and the Chaos (Delos/Naxos). The CD is broken into two sections: the first is a concerto for electric violin and string quartet; the second, Axis and Orbits, showcases Silverman’s ambitious, experimental exploration of electronic loops and irregular time signatures. For inspiration, Silverman turned not to music, but fine art: the title track is a five-part concerto inspired by famous works of visual art, including Michelangelo’s David and Georgia O’Keeffe’s Red Poppy. … In that spirit, Silverman’s work also captures the buoyancy of Matisse’s La Danse, but viscerally echoes the dissonant, distorted vision of Picasso’s Guernica as well.” —Shelton Clark, Strings

We at Delos are tickled pink to announce that brilliant young Russian pianist and Delos recording artist Andrey Gugnin (28) was just named the winner of the prestigious Gina Bachauer International Piano Competition’s 2014 outing in Salt Lake City, emerging victorious from a field of 37 accomplished pianists. Just last summer, his friend and piano-duo partner (and fellow Delos artist) Vadym Kholodenko won the 2013 Van Cliburn competition. This supremely gifted pair – known as iDuo – can be heard together on their like-titled CD, DE 3405, in a thrilling program of duo-piano classics. Gugnin also made quite a splash with his Delos recording (DE 3366) of the two Shostakovich piano concertos, partnering with Constantine Orbelian, Delos’ own resident Maestro.
To celebrate Andrey’s big win – and to make it easier to explore his artistry – we’ll be offering the above pair of albums at the special price of $7.98 apiece!
