"Uneven Sky is about home, the multitudes of homes, and it was made with lots of optimism and love. Syria may not be on the cover of this album but it is present in every detail of the music, and certainly in my heart." Kinan Azmeh

"Home is ever-present and elusive. There and here. Then and now. Lost and found. Listening to this album, we find both the search for home and home itself." Ara Guzelimian

 
Reinhold Glière Sinfonie Nr. 3

Reinhold Glière
Sinfonie Nr. 3 - Ilya Murometz
Beogradska filharmonija
Gabriel Feltz

Multilayer SACD 

catalog number: 21112

The world premiere of Reinhold Glière's monumental third symphony in March 1912 was a culture-political event of the utmost importance in Russia. abriel Feltz presents this remarkable work in cooperation with the Beogradska filharmonija and makes it clear that this most interesting late-romantic composer is well worth a closer look.

Oper in zwei Versionen nach einer Erzählung von Nathaniel Hawthorne

Marisca Mulder | Mireille Lebel | Marwan Shamiyeh 
Florian Götz | Opernchor des Theaters Erfurt
Philharmonisches Orchester Erfurt | Johannes Pell

catalog number: 21106 

 "Bröder manages to musically capture the ambiguity, which is the earmark of this piece, giving it atmospheric form. This is exactly as opera music should be: individual and autonomous, bang up to date, striking in its expressivity, but always orientated towards the goal of portraying a gripping story in a dramatically coherent way." Werner Häußner in Der neue Merker

 

Dortmunder Philharmoniker Gabriel Feltz

Sergej Rachmaninow
Sinfonie Nr. 3 in a-moll op. 44

Dortmunder Philharmoniker
Gabriel Feltz

Catalog number: 21105

"Rachmaninoff’s third symphony communicates, in a very moving way, the life-long struggle of one of Russia’s greatest musicians with this genre. The result is… absolutely magnificent: the musical inspiration is overflowing; the themes and melodies are, as always by Rachmaninoff, inimitable; but more especially, the many changes of mood, achieved by an extremely artistic instrumentation, are unique." Gabriel Feltz

 
Sergej Rachmaninow Sinfonie Nr. 1 in d-moll

Sinfonie Nr. 1 in d-moll

Dortmunder Philharmoniker

Catalog number: 21100

Right up to the present day Sergei Rachmaninoff’s works are all too easily characterised as being “romantic salon music”. Especially just after the Second World War Rachmaninoff’s long melodic phrases and the voluptuous sound of his compositions were often regarded as being somewhat dubious. Even today many critics hold his music to be sentimental and ornate. These judgements and characterisations are, however, often made taking only a very small part of Rachmaninoff’s complete oeuvre into account. A large part of this is, even today, scarcely known in Germany. The First Symphony, which he composed at the age of 22, is one of these works. It gives us a completely new perspective on this supposedly well-known composer. 

 

 "This may well be the best performance yet.“  Steven Kruger in New York Arts

"Gabriel Feltz and his Dortmunders play as if the ink on the score were still wet.. .The playing is outstanding.“ Kal Rubinson in stereophile
