Welcome to our homepage

TROUBADISC was founded in 1991. The direction of this small and committed 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 ...
Music in exemplary, highly enthusiastic interpretations, performed by new, young artists. Exquisitely recorded
in cooperation with leading sound studios, the sound is natural, individual, full of rich nuances and dynamically wide-ranging.
We offer the unheard-of, the unknown, the as-of-yet unnoticed.

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 composers 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 Johann Sebastian Bach, whose set of three sonatas and three partitas she has likewise recorded for Violine Solo: 'Ysaÿe's six sonatas were conceived as a modern-day response to Bach's music and a renewal of the message they contain.'

  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 plays Bach and Silvestrov

Yet another Bach recording? Why not! After all, Johann Sebastian Bach's Six Sonatas and Partitas for unaccompanied violin are the ne plus ultra for their instrument. They also pose a monumental challenge to every violinist – a challenge in which musical substance, tone quality and technical mastery are tested no less supremely than the player’s skill in characterisation and the ability to breathe tension into large-scale form.
In her solo performances of Bach, Renate Eggebrecht pulls out every stop from a lifetime of experience both as an active musician.

Myriam Marbe – Ritual, Serenata, Trommelbass, Requiem

Die Musik Rumäniens spielte im Konzert der internationalen Avantgarde nach dem Zweiten Weltkrieg eine kaum wahrnehmbare Rolle, da das Land von seinen Machthabern isoliert wurde und insbesondere Ceausescu nach chinesischem Vorbild eine nationale Kulturrevolution durchsetzen wollte, die sich gegen alle Einflüsse abschottete. Die jetzt vorliegende Anthologie des Schaffens von Myriam Marbe umfasst 23 Jahre ihres Komponistenlebens – von dem 1968 entstandenen Ritual bis zur reifen Stilsynthese ihres Requiems von 1990.

"Meine lieben Leute, das ist mein Werk. Ich habe den Mut, es euch zu spielen und das bin ich, gut oder schlecht, aber das bin ich."

The baritone Nikolay Borchev of the Bayerische Staatsoper München presents his first album with Troubadisc.

Anyone who dares to put a new recording of Franz Schubert's Winterreise on the market must have something to say. First, to the present day there has been no greater challenge to the lied singer than this cycle. With its unpretentious simplicity, silky plainness and fragile strength it demands simply everything from its interpreters.

No sooner had Troubadisc's producers heard baritone Nikolay Borchev and pianist Friedrich Suckel than one thing was perfectly clear: it had to be Winterreise. The expressive power and suavity that these two young artists bring to the work were beyond question.

Now this challenge that every singer must face is released!
