"The Quartetto di Cremona is the ECHO Klassik Prizewinner in the Category Chamber Music Recording, 19th Century Music for Strings."
On October 29th the Quartetto di Cremona accepted the ECHO KLASSIK 2017 at the Hamburg Elbphilharmonie from the hands of Thomas Gottschalk for the recording of Ludwig van Beethoven's Complete String Quartets, Vol VII.
Two new CDs were introduced in one go by Franziska Pietsch, her Trio Lirico and pianist Detlev Eisinger on October 13th in Berlin: Prokofiev's Violin Concertos (DSO Berlin, Cristian Macelaru) and the String Trios and the Piano Quartet in A minor by Max Reger.

However, he’s no stranger to Prokofiev, as he and the Bournemouth Symphony have demonstrated with their symphony cycle for Onyx.

Die vorliegenden, beim RIAS Berlin ausgegrabenen und hervorragend remasterten Archivschätze belegen das auf schönste Weise: Live-Mitschnitte der Klavierkonzerte mit dem RSO Berlin von 1971 und 1982, Studioaufnahmen der
Seit Decca Anfang der 80er-Jahre begann, ihn eine Art klingende Bilanz seines Wirkens ziehen zu lassen, ist Jorge Bolet (1914-90) auch bei uns ein Begriff, "seine" Schubert-Lieder in den Liszt -Bearbeitungen zum Beispiel besitzen unter Kennern seit langem Kultstatus. Vorher war die Karriere des gebürtigen Kubaners nur schleppend vorangekommen. Eine einfache
