Summer Holiday Collection 2018

feat. Liszt, Lully, Brahms, Caroline Shaw & Mendelssohn

Play all

Welcome to our Summer Collection 2018! This time last year we took you on a musical holiday to various difference parts of the world so you might be curious what´s on the menu for this summer…

So this year, to ring the changes, we've decided to accompany the composers themselves on their holidays or summer exploits. We'll leave the details of that to the Collection itself, but the musical works are…. First, Liszt's Swiss Book 1 from his Années de Pèlerinage for piano solo, played here by Bertrand Chamayou; then we have Lully’s Le divertissement royal de Versailles performed by Le Concert des Nations under Jordi Savall; next, Brahms's G major Violin Sonata played by Christian Tetzlaff and Lars Vogt; then Caroline Shaw’s Partita for 8 Voices sung by the US vocal ensemble, Roomful of Teeth; and finally Mendelssohn’s Piano Concerto No 1 in G minor with Saleem Ashkar as soloist with the Leipzig Gewandhaus under Riccardo Chailly.

Enjoy, and happy summer holidays!
