Quartetto Prometeo gets more 5 stars!

QUARTETTO PROMETEO gets more 5 stars for its latests recordings:

5 stars! by Diapason for the monographic CD dedicated to Salvatore Sciarrino for Kairos:
« Le jeu fusionnel des Prometeo compte pour beaucoup dans une musique où l’implication totale tient lieu de virtuosité. Et dans les rare moments où la nuance est plus appuyée, c’est un écho fugace des derniers quatuors de Beethoven qui vient nous surprendre, alors que nous étions tout ouïe pour le souffle des archets, décliné en une micropalette de colorations. » (Pierre Rigaudière – Diapason-set 2013) 

5 stars! by the Neue Musik Zeitung for the monographic CD dedicated to Stefano Scodanibbio for ECM:
« Alles sind Transkriptionen, aber alles trägt die Handschrift von Scodanibbio, die auf wundersame Weise die so ungeheuer verschiedenen Werke in eine ebenso traurigen wie visionären neuen Stil („Reinventions“ – Wiedererfindungen) bindet. Dass der derart anrührend, ja auch erschütternd in die Tiefe gehen kann, liegt auch am hochsensiblen Spiel des Prometeo Quartetts, das sich nach der Idee des Komponisten der adaptierten Musik mit atemberaubenden Klangfarben suchend und fragend nähert. Ein eigenwilliges und großartiges Vermächtnis. » (Ute Schalz-Laurenze – NMZ-ott 2013)

Kochanovsky conducts the Hamburger Symphoniker

After the debut at "The Stars of the White Nights Festival" in St. Petersburg for the first time on the podium of the Mariinsky Orchestra, STANISLAV KOCHANOVSKY on September 22nd and 24th will conduct for the first time the Hamburger Symphoniker.

"Stanislav Kochanovsky in his 30 years managed to become one of the best young conductors in the country, playing with all the best Russian orchestras. It is already obvious that this young man is a phenomenon. He is uniquely sophisticated in his sense of music and style. The works of Mussorgsky, Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky he conducts with inspiration and youthful drive, enjoying pathetic moments, causing the orchestra to express emotions of ecstatic power (managing to avoid hysterical tear). Easily and elegantly he took the musicians away from heroic swing to delicate and tender pianissimo so that the orchestra of 120 instruments sounds like a warm sensuous whisper." wrote the Udm-info after Kochanovsky's debut with the Svetlanov Orchestra in the 2012.

New video have been added on the “Multimedia” section of the artist’s page in this website that I warmly invite you to visit:
