Beethoven Concertos vol.1

This is the second volume in a series of three recordings from AMC with the Philharmonic Orchestra of Bogotá and Joachim Gustafsson conducting, which will be the first recording made in Latin America of all of Beethoven’s concertos for piano and orchestra, including the piano version of the violin concerto. On this recording the wonderful and dramatic Egmont Overture is also included.
The 24-year-old Beethoven likely gave the first performance of the sparkling Second Concerto at a concert of Prince Lobkowitz, where his playing “touched everybody”. The young musician had the honour of performing the concerto later that same year with the esteemed Haydn conducting. It is a charming and delightful work, with a beautiful slow movement that must have shown off Beethoven’s noted cantabile style of playing, as well as a light-hearted, comic finale.
The cadenza in the first movement is by Niklas Sivelöv.
The Piano Concerto No.3 in C minor, Op.37 was generally thought to have been composed in 1800, although the year of its composition has recently been revised to 1803. It was first performed on 5 April of that year, with the composer as soloist, in a concert where the Second Symphony and the oratorio Christ on the Mount of Olives were also premiered. The concerto was published in 1804, and was dedicated to Prince Louis Ferdinand of Prussia.

Juan de la Rubia plays the Organ at Bogota´s Cathedral

AMC Classical’s first compact disc dedicated to the pipe organ, the ’King of Instruments’, which includes works composed over six centuries, exploring the sonic possibilities of the historic instrument in the Cathedral of Bogotá, Colombia.

The release coincides with the ’Jubilee Year’ that Pope Francis has granted to the Cathedral of Bogotá as part of the celebration of the 200th anniversary of the present building. It is also considered to be the first professional recording of organ music made in this country and region, a milestone for the history of the instrument, its music, its performers and its audiences.

Partitas & English Suites

Niklas Sivelöv is now up to date with the two double albums of Bach’s Partitas & English Suites the first Scandinavian pianist ever to record all of Bach’s piano works: Das Wohltemperierte Klavier, all partitas, the English suites, inventions and sinfonias!

When the pianist–composer Beethoven moved to Vienna to study with Haydn, he confined his appearances for the first three years to soirees for the aristocracy, until he was satisfied he would make a spectacular debut both as virtuoso pianist and composer. At last, in 1795, he burst into Viennese musical life with his Piano Trios, Op.1 and his three Piano Sonatas, Op.2, the first works he considered worthy of an opus number. His shrewd judgement paid off: the young piano tiger and his compositions made an enormous impression.
The Op.2 piano sonatas, the first of 32, are grounded in the Viennese Classical tradition of Mozart and Haydn, but already display Beethoven’s original voice. 
These three sonatas, which range over the entire keyboard, often with hands widely spaced, seem to strain at the confines of the fortepiano Beethoven owned at the time. Indeed the demands Beethoven placed on keyboard instruments with his 32 piano sonatas led to its substantial development already in his lifetime. At the end of his life Beethoven owned two much more advanced pianos, a
Broadwood and a Graf, and in this recording Niklas Sivelöv plays a modern replica of a Graf piano.

Niklas Sivelov is a wide-ranging and creative pianist who is also successful as a composer.
I like his vigilant playing for example in the finale of the 4th concerto
It would be nice if this project could develop into a more extensive collaboration between Latin America and Scandinavia

“The album is brimming with charming musicality.
The piano professor and his partner make the world seem light and beautiful.”

Late Sonatas by Beethoven (AMC/Amchara Classical) :
Everything one wants in an outstanding Beethoven interpreter is here: a resolute rhythmic
pulse, vibrant momentum in the Scherzos, a feeling for the dignity of the slow movements,
and the ability to sustain the line in those timeless finales.
– Huntley Dent, Fanfare Magazine, 18 October 2019
