Chopin: 1846, last year at Nohant – Sonata for cello & piano / Piano Works
1846: the last summer that Chopin was to spend on George Sand's estate at Nohant, where he had composed or completed the core of his oeuvre over a period of seven years. That summer saw the birth of his last miniatures and of some more ambitious pieces: the Barcarolle, the Nocturnes op.62a, and of course the Cello Sonata, the very last work published in his lifetime.

Cavalieri: Rappresentatione di anima et di corpo
Composed at a time when neither oratorio nor opera existed, this Rappresentatione premiered in February 1600 is a magisterial musical drama. In its dialogue between Soul and Body - an emblematic theme of the Counter-Reformation - it employs singers, chorus, and an extensive orchestra whose varied timbres both accompany and characterise the soloists. At the dawn of the Baroque revolution, song, stage action, dance, and instrumental music combine in perfect harmony.

Anonymous 4 and special guest Bruce Molsky commemorate the 150th anniversary of the end of the (American) Civil War with songs that were in the air in the year 1865. Ballads and choruses originally intended for the stage and the parlor, songs and instrumental tunes from the hills and back roads of America: these are the stylized, versified, personal stories prized by so many men, women and children who lived through "This Cruel War."

Astor Piazzolla: Escualo
A musical ambassador. The name of Astor Piazzolla is synonymous with the word tango. A musical ambassador who carried the signature sounds of Argentina's cafes and nightclubs to concert halls around the world, his instantly recognizable compositions (attractively arranged here for harp, violin and bandoneón) are infused with elements of jazz, fusion and even classical baroque.
