Welcome to our Homepage

TROUBADISC was founded in 1991. The direction of this com-mitted label was evident from the very first release - a disc of chamber works by Fanny Mendelssohn-Hensel.
The classical music here offers a welcome addition to the more traditional repertory and provides listeners
with a totally new experience in the world of sound: lively, appealing and topical ...

Mieczyslaw Weinberg
Sonatas 1, 2 & 3
Renate Eggebrecht, violin

Combining all three of Mieczyslaw Weinberg's sonatas for unaccompanied violin on a single CD makes eminently good sense, for the direct ties between the music and the life of this Russian composer become all the more vivid. 'Many of my works', he once said, 'deal with war. Unfortunately, this was not my own choice. It was dictated to me by my fate, by the tragic fate of my relatives. I view it as my moral obligation to write about war, about the horrors that humankind suffered in our century.'

Karl Amadeus Hartmann,
Sonatas and Suites (1927)

Renate Eggebrecht, violin

This new recording by Renate Eggebrecht marks only the second time that Karl Amadeus Hartmann's complete works for unaccompanied violin have been released on disc. At the same time it is unique, for it is the first to take Hartmann's autograph scores into account. Besides a good many insubstantial variants, the musical text also contains a number of crucial changes, some of which considerably alter the sound of the music. Hartmann wrote these two suites and two sonatas in a single burst of creativity in 1927 at the age of 22. As a result, they number among his earliest surviving compositions altogether. With a burning curiosity for everything new and an absoluteness that left a deep imprint on his musical language, he explored all the styles en vogue at the time, always with an open mind.

Anatol Vieru II,
Écran, Cello concerto I, Sonnenuhr, Jocuri, Ode au silence (Symphony No.1)

'I've always felt that one shouldn't write difficult music. In this sense, I believe I'm very democratic. I don't think it's right to take the material and make something singular out of it. No, one must create something universal, something for society.'
Anatol Vieru
(Interview 2. August 1998, Bucharest by Thomas Beimel)


These two recently released volumes of orchestral music by Anatol Vieru, emanating from the Munich-based label Troubadisc are, for me, like manna from heaven.

Anatol Vieru I,
Symphony VI »Exodus« and 'Memorial

Anatol Vieru's sixth symphony, Exodus, arose in a period of downfall and decline, just before the collapse of the régime associated with the name of the dictator Nicolae Ceausescu:
   It was composed between 1988 and 1989 and is influenced by the atmosphere of that era. The more I worried, the more obvious it seemed to me that an exodus was taking place around me, a mental exodus for some, a real, physical exodus for others. To me, the image of exodus seems to be the emblem of this turbulent century.
   We can now introduce the world - premiere recordings of the sixth symphony Exodus and ‚Memorial‘ performed by the Symphony Orchestra and the Chamber Orchestra of the Romanian Radio Orchestra conducted by Maestro Horia Andreescu and Maestro Ludovic Bács in collaboration with Radio Romania also here and around the world.


Matthias Hoffmann-Borggrefe conducts Mendelssohn’s “ELIJAH”

Following upon the highly acclaimed
live recording of Frank Martin's Requiem and Arthur Honegger's cantata La Danse des morts (TRO-CD 01441), Troubadisc is pleased to present another sterling performance from the Choir of St. Nikolai in Hamburg, conducted by its longstanding director, Matthias Hoffmann-Borggrefe.
   There are many reasons why Mendelssohn's Elijah belongs among the jewels of the nineteenth-century romantic oratorio repertoire.
   Hoffmann-Borggrefe presents a well-considered interpretation that deals intensively with musical details without losing sight of the work's overall rigor. He is assisted by such superb vocalists as Katherina Müller, Yvi Jänicke, Michael Connaire, and a truly stentorian Elijah in the form of the bass-baritone Yorck Felix Speer. The Choir of St. Nikolai is accompanied by judicious and inspired playing from the Hamburg Camerata. The multi-track recording uniquely captures the special atmosphere of this concert of November 2013.

Renate Eggebrecht plays the Ysaÿe Sonatas and Rodrigo’s Capriccio

Ysaÿe is still largely neglected as a composer.

Renate Eggebrecht is thus all the more concerned to show, with her readings, where he should be placed among the great com-posers for the solo violin and what magnificent things he achieved in this area. Ysaÿe's trailblazing expansion of violin technique led music into uncharted territory: Bartók, Milhaud, Schoenberg, Denisov and many others pursued his discoveries in their own violin music.
   Another aspect that fascinates her about the Ysaÿe sonatas is their relation to the music of Bach, whose set of three sonatas and three partitas she has likewise recorded for the Edition VIOLIN SOLO. 
   Rounding off the Ysaÿe sonatas as a sort of epilogue is the Capriccio by Joaquín Rodrigo. Composed in 1944 as a tribute to the great violinist Pablo de Sarasate, Renate Eggebrecht finds it 'a pièce de resistance of rich-hued impressionistic neo-classicism and daredevil virtuosity for the solo violin'.

"I let Bach decide what his music has to say"
[Renate Eggebrecht]

After extensive production time, we can now offer our Bach Edition as a 3 CD set! Bach's Sonatas and Partitas for violin solo, milestones about the changing times, are regarded as the highest musical challenge!
   After the complete recordings of Max Reger's works for solo violin and recordings of many other composers, the violinist Renate Eggebrecht has now presented this Bach cycle, a deep, sonorous and clear interpretation - - - and Silvestrov's postludium, where does it lead us?
