Daniel HOPE
Rumänisch

Few performers can match the intensity and humanity of Daniel Hope’s music-making or his passion for artistic exploration. The British violinist’s musicianship connects with connoisseurs and newcomers to classical music alike, winning hearts and stimulating minds with its lyricism and insight. His understanding of musical line and expression took root under the early care of his mentor, Yehudi Menuhin; it has matured fully since, enabling him to deliver strikingly personal interpretations of everything from Bach, Handel and Vivaldi to Takemitsu, Tavener and Turnage. The Frankfurter Neue Presse has described Hope as “a musician with a sense and feeling for something extraordinary”, echoing a theme that runs through so many reviews of his work. That “feeling” fuels his desire to break down barriers that separate individuals, communities and nations, and drives his work as a self-styled musical activist.

Ksenija SIDOROVA
Medley Seguidillas/Habanera/Chanson Bohème

Praised as “superbly subtle and virtuosic” (The Arts Desk) and “an amazingly accomplished artist” (Classical Source), Ksenija Sidorova is the leading ambassador for the accordion. Encouraged to take up the instrument by a grandmother steeped in the folk tradition of accordion playing, Ksenija started to play the instrument aged eight under the guidance of Marija Gasele in her hometown of Riga. Her quest for more exposure to both classical and contemporary repertoire took her to London where she became a prize-winning undergraduate at the Royal Academy of Music studying under Owen Murray.  This Performance of Bizet's Carmen will renew your perception about accordion again.

Daniil TRIFONOV
Rachmaninov: Piano Concerto No. 4 in G Minor, Op. 40 - 1. Allegro vivace (Alla breve)

Whenever Daniil Trifonov performs, time appears to stand still. Out of profound silence emerges a rare kind of music-making, transcendent and revelatory, never predictable yet always alive to the composer’s intentions and rooted in the music’s nature. “What he does with his hands is technically incredible,” observed one commentator shortly after the young Russian pianist’s winning performance in the final of the International Tchaikovsky Competition in Moscow in 2011. “It’s also his touch – he has tenderness and also the demonic element. I never heard anything like that.” This was the opinion not of a professional critic but of one of the world’s greatest pianists, Martha Argerich. She concluded that Trifonov was gifted with “everything and more”, a view endorsed since by a flood of rave reviews, audience ovations and international prizes. This is a music video for one of his recordings from his new album Departure, a collaboration with The Philadelphia Orchestra and Yannick Nézet-Séguin.

Franco FAGIOLI
Franco Fagioli: Ombra mai fu

It takes a special artist to excel in the fiendishly difficult arias that are central to the landscape of Baroque and early bel canto opera. Franco Fagioli possesses the necessary combination of technical agility, tonal variety and vocal range required to triumph in works that leave many other countertenors perplexed. As well as gaining a reputation as one of today’s finest Handelians, he also specialises in Mozart and in roles originally written for castrato singers. His astonishing artistry has been hailed by critics worldwide and regularly attracts capacity audiences eager to hear a performer blessed with an uncanny ability to deliver the spectacular runs, leaps and turns of even the most difficult virtuoso showpieces.

Lisa BATIASHVILI
Halvorsen: Passacaglia on a Theme by Handel [ Live From Yellow Lounge Berlin / 2018 ]

Described by The Times (London) as “the complete musician”, Lisa Batiashvili commands her place among the world’s foremost artists with performances of great insight and expressive eloquence. The German-based Georgian violinist has been acclaimed by critics for her virtuosity, sensitivity and charismatic power. She was named Musical America’s “2015 Instrumentalist of the Year”, an accolade reserved for artists of the highest calibre, and also stands among the winners of Italy’s prestigious International Accademia Musicale Chigiana Prize.

Alice Sara OTT
Grieg: To Spring (Lyric Pieces Book III) - Wonderland

Armed with formidable technical mastery and profound musical sensitivity, Alice Sara Ott stands among the most compelling artists of her generation. The German-Japanese musician’s poetic pianism, hailed by critics for its refinement and intensity, has prompted favourable comparisons with great performers from the past. Ott’s music-making is guided by a desire to connect with the essential spirit of the works in her repertoire; above all, it flows from her innate ability to channel a vast range of emotions and imaginative responses into every performance.

Bernstein: West Side Story - Mambo

The première of Leonard Bernstein´s West Side Story took place in New York in 1957. At the piano was the famous Stephen Sondheim, who wrote the lyrics for the musical.

Joep BEVING
Joep Beving: Ab Ovo
At nearly six foot ten, with his wild hair and flowing beard, the Dutch pianist resembles a friendly giant from a book of children’s fairy tales. But his playing – understated, haunting, melancholic – marks him out as the gentlest of giants, his delicate melodies soothing the soul in these troubled times.

“The world is a hectic place right now,” says Joep. “I feel a deep urge to reconnect on a basic human level with people in general. Music as our universal language has the power to unite. Regardless of our cultural differences I believe we have an innate understanding of what it means to be human. We have our goosebumps to show for it.” In his Ab Ovo, let the connection be rebuilt.

Evgeny KISSIN
Beethoven: Piano Sonata No. 23 In F Minor, Op. 57 - "Appassionata"

Russian pianist Evgeny Kissin is one of the most distinguished musicians of his generation, revered the world over by audiences and critics alike for the virtuosity and eloquence of his pianism and the imagination and insight of his interpretations. He was recently described by the Financial Times (London) as a “formidably intelligent pianist” and hailed by the New York Times for his “blend of technical mastery and eloquent artistry”.

At the age of six, he enrolled at Moscow’s Gnessin School, an elite establishment for young musicians, where he received lessons from Anna Pavlovna Kantor, who became his only teacher. Kissin’s progress was such that he gave his first full performance with orchestra at the age of ten, making his debut with Mozart’s Piano Concerto in D minor K466; he presented his first recital in Moscow the following year.

Richard GALLIANO
Mozart: Concerto pour clarinette en la majeur, K. 622 - Arrangement pour accordéon

In the past, there never seemed to have been one great artist associated with the accordion, an instrument that, because of its connotations, seemed as far removed from swing as it is possible to be. Then along came Richard Galliano, fired by an unrivalled determination to share his conviction that the accordion was worthy have a place at the heart of jazz alongside the saxophone and trumpet. This interpretation of Mozart takes the art of accordion one step further. Accordion, in his hands, finally finds its place in vast world of traditional classical music.

Max RICHTER
Max Richter - Dream 13

Born in West Germany in 1966, but raised in England, Britain’s Max Richter has spent much of his life refining his approach to musical communication. Recognised nowadays as one of the most influential composers of his generation, his endeavours have spanned three decades, encompassing diverse fields, from his own successful solo recordings to extensive work for stage and screen. Despite his music’s all-embracing nature, he was classically trained: educated in Bedford, England, where he’d lived since he was a child, he studied composition and piano at Edinburgh University, then London’s Royal Academy of Music, before joining Luciano Berio, the innovative Italian composer, in Florence. Back in London, he co-founded Piano Circus, a six-piano ensemble, in 1989, and he spent much of the next ten years championing the minimalist works of, among others, Arvo Pärt, Steve Reich, Terry Riley and Michael Nyman.

Kian SOLTANI
Demenga: New York Honk [ Live From Yellow Lounge Berlin / 2018 ]

New worlds of imagination appear whenever Kian Soltani makes music. A sense of individuality, depth of expression and charismatic presence are among the elements of the young Austrian cellist’s captivating artistry. Rave reviews and invitations to perform at the world’s leading concert halls have propelled the 25-year-old musician from rising star to one of the most exciting musicians of his generation. Soltani’s status was confirmed in February 2017 when he won Germany’s prestigious Leonard Bernstein Award, and underlined five months later when he signed an exclusive contract to record for Deutsche Grammophon. His debut DG album, Home, comprising works for cello and piano by Schubert, Schumann and Reza Vali, is set for international release in January 2018.

Nemanja RADULOVIC
Tchaikovsky: Concerto For Violin And Orchestra In D Major, Op. 35, TH 59, 3. Finale.

With his extravagantly flowing locks, gothic fashion style and show-stopping virtuosity, violinist Nemanja Radulović is a throwback to the Romantic composers of a bygone era. He’s also a one-off in the world of classical music. While some use gimmicks to sell themselves, Nemanja prefers to let the music speak for itself – and his violin do his talking for him. “I try to find the sound of the human voice,” he explains. “For me the violin is the best way I have found to express myself.”

Not yet 30 years old, Nemanja is a former child prodigy who has overcome all sorts of obstacles to bestride some of the world’s greatest concert stages.

Albrecht MAYER
Vivaldi: Oboe Concerto In C Major, RV 450 [1. Allegro molto]

He began his professional career in 1990 as principal oboist of the Bamberg Symphony Orchestra. Since 1992 he has occupied the same position with the Berliner Philharmoniker, despite his growing renown as a concert soloist. Among the most sought-after oboists of our time, he has appeared as soloist with such eminent conductors as Claudio Abbado, Sir Simon Rattle and Nikolaus Harnoncourt. He made his Carnegie Hall debut in 2007 with the Orpheus Chamber Orchestra, and is an enthusiastic chamber player, his partners including Hélène Grimaud, Leif Ove Andsnes and Lars Vogt.

Awarded Bamberg’s ETA-Hoffmann Prize in December 2006, Mayer has also been honoured with the ECHO-Klassik prize three times, twice as Instrumentalist of the Year. In 2013 he was inducted into the Gramophone “Hall of Fame” and awarded the Bavarian Culture Prize.

Hélène GRIMAUD
Debussy’s La cathédrale engloutie - Water

Grimaud was born in 1969 in Aix-en-Provence and began her piano studies at the local conservatory with Jacqueline Courtin before going on to work with Pierre Barbizet in Marseille. She was accepted into the Paris Conservatoire at just 13 and won first prize in piano performance a mere three years later. She continued to study with György Sándor and Leon Fleisher until, in 1987, she gave her well-received debut recital in Tokyo. That same year, renowned conductor Daniel Barenboim invited her to perform with the Orchestre de Paris: this marked the launch of Grimaud’s musical career, characterised ever since by concerts with most of the world’s major orchestras and many celebrated conductors.

Piotr BECZALA
La fleur que tu m'avais jetée

The Polish tenor Piotr Beczala, known worldwide for the singular beauty of his tone, comes from a rich musical tradition. When he studied at the Katowice Academy of Music, his teachers included such legendary singers as Pavel Lisitsian and Sena Jurinac. He began to build an international career when he became a company member at the Zurich Opera and consolidated his international presence in 2004 with his debuts at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden and at the San Francisco Opera. He swiftly became one of the most sought-after lyrical tenors in the opera houses of the world.

Rafal BLECHACZ
J.S. Bach: Italian Concerto In F Major, BWV 971, 1. (Allegro)

Profound thought and feeling merge in Rafał Blechacz’s music-making to create interpretations of irresistible energy and penetrating insight. The Polish pianist’s artistry is recognised by reviewers as rare by any measure – his many plaudits include being dubbed “a musician in service to the music, searching its depths, exploring its meaning and probing its possibilities” (Washington Post) – and arises from his total command of the keyboard and ability to unlock his instrument’s full expressive range. Those qualities, driven by innate curiosity and openness, have supported Blechacz’s artistic and professional development in the years since he took first prize at the 2005 International Chopin Piano Competition. He stands today among the world’s finest pianists, a young artist in high demand for the honesty and vision he brings to performances of everything from Bach and Beethoven to Chopin and Szymanowski.

Gidon KREMER
Kremerata Baltica - Movement IV

Gidon Kremer was born in Riga (Latvia) in 1947, the only child of parents of German origin. After receiving his first musical instruction at home - both father and grandfather were professional violinists - he studied at the Riga School of Music and then at the Moscow Conservatory under David Oistrakh. Kremer enjoyed notable success at competitions in Brussels (1967), Montreal and Genoa (1969), and Moscow (1970). After extended tours through the former Soviet Union, he began appearing with increasing frequency in the West: his first concert in Germany came in 1975, followed by debuts at the Salzburg Festival (1976) and in New York (1977). Gidon Kremer was also one of the artistic directors of the music festival "Art Projekt '92" in Munich.

Anna NETREBKO
La Wally / Act 1, “Ebben? Ne andro lontana” - Catalani

It is rare for an artist to break through the boundaries of classical music stardom and achieve recognition in the wider world, but Anna Netrebko has achieved that and more. In a recording career spanning less than fifteen years so far, she has not only seduced the classical scene with the beauty of her voice, her superb vocal control and supreme musicality, she has also become an interna­tional icon. More than an operatic diva, Anna Netrebko is an enormously charismatic individual whose style and stage presence are as celebrated as her musicianship.

Murray PERAHIA
Anyone eager to learn about the fine art of musical interpretation should seek instruction from Murray Perahia. The American pianist’s readings of great repertoire landmarks by everyone from Bach and Beethoven to Chopin and Liszt offer timeless lessons in sensibility, sophistication and expressive intensity. While his approach invariably draws attention to the music not the musician, he stands in the tradition of the great keyboard virtuosi as an artist armed with consummate technical skills, boundless imagination and near-mystical eloquence. Perahia’s pianism, recognised as exceptional since his student days, has matured over more than four decades to deliver unique insights into music’s spiritual qualities, its power to communicate where words end.

Anoushka SHANKAR
Anoushka Shankar - Land Of Gold ft. Alev Lenz

Land of Gold, Anoushka Shankar’s fourth album for Deutsche Grammophon, is her heartfelt response to the trauma and injustice being experienced by refugees and victims of war. Offering an uplifting message of hope for dark times, its music was inspired by recent news images of people fleeing civil war, oppression, poverty and unbearable hardship. The album contemplates the common thread of humanity and its power to reconnect people divided by hatred and fear. “The seeds of Land of Gold originated in the context of the humanitarian plight of refugees,” Anoushka recalls. “It coincided with the time when I had recently given birth to my second child. I was deeply troubled by the intense contrast between my ability to provide for my baby, and others who desperately wanted to provide the same security for their children but were unable to do so.”

Pablo HERAS-CASADO
Pablo Heras-Casado - José de Nebra - Vendado es amor, no es ciego (Music Video)

When Pablo Heras-Casado brings a score to life in performance, he does so through a unique combination of acquired skills, innate wisdom and open-hearted passion. The Spanish artist, hailed by the New York Times as “the thinking person’s idea of a hotshot young conductor”, has achieved remarkable success in repertoire ranging from renaissance polyphony and 19th-century grand opera to works by Pierre Boulez, Peter Eötvös and George Benjamin. Heras-Casado’s lifelong commitment to early music and historically informed performance was recognised in 2013 when he was named as an Archiv Ambassador by Deutsche Grammophon’s Archiv label. The new relationship will be launched in May 2014 with the release of an album of works associated with the legendary castrato Farinelli, recorded in company with the countertenor Bejun Mehta and Concerto Köln. The conductor’s work in all repertoires is informed by deep knowledge of performance practice traditions and of the vital spiritual connection between performers and their audiences.

Hilary Hahn - Charles Ives: Four Sonatas - Sonata No. 4 - 1st mvt., allegro (Official Video)

Watch Hilary Hahn and Valentina Lisitsa play the violin sonatas by Charles Ives. His idiom is in Hilary Hahn's American blood − which her fierce and fitting playing shows. Her partnership with pianist Valentina Lisitsa models what two singular artists can accomplish in the interests of a common cause.

Quirky, peculiar, rich with Charles Ives's idiosyncratic notion of melody, peppered with prankish dissonance yet also logical − and, in its logic, beautiful − Ives's works for violin and piano turn familiar musical expressions upside down. They are an alternate universe of aesthetic pleasure.

The album contains Rachmaninov's piano concerto No. 3 and Prokofiev's piano concerto No. 2 and is released on Deutsche Grammophon.
The album captures the extraordinary energy levels of a very special evening in Caracas. Rachmaninov's hugely popular Piano Concerto No.3 is his longest, most ambitious and most technically complex work for piano and orchestra. Prokofiev's Piano Concerto No.2 is phenomenally emotional and intense music that also presents huge technical challenges for the soloist - particularly in the long and ferociously complex first movement cadenza.

Mikhail SIMONYAN
Simonyan - Violin Concerto - Khachaturian (Official Video)

Watch Mikhail Simonyan play the last movement of Khachaturian's Violin Concerto recorded for "Two souls". This unusual coupling of the violin concertos by Aram Khachaturian and Samuel Barber is tailor-made for Mikhail Simonyan's Deutsche Grammophon debut. One soul is Armenian, the other American. Born in Novosibirsk, Simonyan has mixed Russian and Armenian parentage, but spent his formative years in the US. When he was 13, he toured the US as soloist with the American Russian Young Artists Orchestra; soon afterwards he moved to America and entered the Curtis Music Institute in Philadelphia.
Simonyan's close rapport with Kristjan Järvi and his first collaboration with one of the world's best orchestras, the London Symphony Orchestra, produce an extraordinarily fresh reading of the two concertos: "I've known Kristjan for 12 years -- he was at my very first concert at Lincoln Center," says Simonyan, "and we have performed many times together since then. If you share the same musical ideas, the interpretation becomes a completely different proposition. We opened the musical scores of these concertos and felt totally free."
About the Barber concerto, Simonyan adds: "It's simply one of the most beautiful pieces in the string repertoire". He performs the work with a perfect American accent that evokes images of this vast country. The recording renders the quality of both concertos in an unprecedented way. It can be confidently expected that the ears of audience and critics alike will be pleasantly surprised.

Mojca Erdmann sheds new light on Mozart's universal genius with a timbre that like light itself, contains every color that exists within it. She makes her music with worthy colleagues: Andrea Marcon and the outstanding period instrumentalists of La Cetra Baroque Orchestra Basle.

Heralded as “one of the great singers of our time and certainly one of the most remarkable of any time” (Los Angeles Times), his debut in 1995 at the Oregon Bach Festival laid the basis for his highly successful career in the USA, and he has worked with the world’s most renowned orchestras and conductors at all the prestigious houses and festivals. His recordings as an exclusive Deutsche Grammophon artist have earned a long and growing list of international awards and prizes including three Grammys®, the Echo Award, BBC Music Magazine Award, Amadeus Music Award and Orphée d’or. Quasthoff held a professorship at the Music Academy in Detmold from 1996–2004; from 2004 until today he holds a professorship at Berlin’s Hanns Eisler Hochschule für Musik. In 2004 he received Hildesheim’s Ring of Honour; in 2005 he was awarded the Order of Merit of the Republic of Germany; in 2006 he received the European Culture Prize for Music at the Dresden Frauenkirche; and in 2009, the Herbert von Karajan Music Prize as an exceptional artist who “captures the hearts of his audience in virtually all of his performances”:

After 20 years of operatic experience, Thielemann, who also has been guest conductor-in-chief at the Teatro Comunale of Bologna, started concentrating on a few selected orchestras and opera houses such as Covent Garden in London, the Metropolitan in New York and the Vienna State Opera. From 1997–2004 he was music director of the Deutsche Oper, Berlin, and in 2004 he was appointed music director of the Münchner Philharmoniker. Thielemann received Germany’s Bundesverdienstkreuz in 2003.

Claudio Abbado - Rossini: Il Barbiere Di Siviglia - Overture

Mit tiefem Bedauern gibt Deutsche Grammophon den Tod eines der größten Dirigenten des vorigen Jahrhunderts bekannt, eines überragenden Künstlers, dessen Lebenswerk zweifellos die Zeit überdauern wird. DG war und ist stolz, Abbado auf seiner musikalischen Reise während der 46 Jahre, die er diesem Label verbunden war, begleitet zu haben und das Privileg gehabt zu haben, seine Arbeit in Aufnahmen zu bewahren.

Claudio Abbado wird nicht nur als einer der bemerkenswertesten Dirigenten seiner Zeit in Erinnerung bleiben, der die erstaunliche Fähigkeit besaß, jeweils direkt zum Kern der Musik vorzudringen und ihre Geheimnisse mit absoluter Klarheit zu enthüllen, sondern auch als ein Mensch, dessen unermüdliche Arbeit und kommunikative Begabung durch die Förderung von Musikern, Gründung von Orchestern und Einrichtung von Festivals weitreichende Wirkung auf das gesamte kulturelle Leben hatten.

Terms & Conditions for
Price Draws

Please note that this translation is for your information only. The legally binding text in German can be found here.

General Terms and Conditions for the prize draw promoted by:
Deutsche Grammophon Gesellschaft mbH
Stralauer Allee 1
10245 Berlin, Deutschland (hereinafter "the Label")


1. These General Terms and Conditions apply to the prize draw promoted by the Label on the websites of the Label and/or its legal affiliates.

2. To participate in the competition individuals must be over the age of 18 with full legal capacity. Representatives and employees of the Label and its legal affiliates, their first or second-degree relatives and relatives by marriage are ineligible to participate. Invalid participation will not give rise to entitlement to any prize. Entries made via competition or input services cannot be taken into account.

3. Each Participant must submit his/her entry under his/her own name. Prizes cannot be transferred to third parties.

4. The provision of compulsory and voluntary information required for participation in the competition, such as first and last names, address, age and/or email address and/or telephone number shall be handled by the Label in accordance with its statement of data protection and any additional declarations of consent provided. Eligibility for participation in the competition requires that where information is requested, all information submitted must be truthful. Otherwise, the Participant may be excluded from the competition, even at a later date.

5. Where there is a change in the law or legal interpretation or if there is a legal ban, the Label retains the right to exchange the published prize and to replace the prize with other prizes, to amend the relevant competition or to cancel the competition in its entirety. In such circumstances, prize-winners who have already been determined shall have no recourse against the Label or its legal affiliates.

6. Determination of prize-winners is made by the Label, its employees and agents or appointed third parties. In this respect the Label is not liable for simple negligence of these individuals during the prize-winner determination process.

7. If a Participant has won a prize, he/she will be notified in writing (in particular by email) or by telephone. If notification is made in writing, the prize-winner is required to inform the Label in the requested format within five (5) working days (valid once postmarked within this time) after receiving the notification whether he/she will accept the prize. If notification is made by telephone and the Label is unable to reach the prize-winner it will attempt to leave a message insofar as this is technically possible. The prize-winner is required to inform the Label in the requested format within three (3) working days (valid once postmarked within this time) after receiving the notification whether he/she will accept the prize. If these deadlines are not met, the Participant is no longer entitled to the prize. The Label in such case shall be entitled at its sole discretion to either not give the prize to anyone or to determine a new prize-winner and to award the prize to another participant. Claims by the original prize-winner against the Label are invalid.

8. Prizes are limited to the published specifications. For non-cash prizes, the Label will also be responsible for the postage of prizes. Any other services, such as the equipment necessary to use the prizes awarded or, in the case of a specified travel prize, any equipment which the winner may need for the trip or any travel needed to reach the point of departure or any costs incurred during the travel which in the definition of the prize are not listed as being part of the prize, are not included unless otherwise expressly stated in the prize draw rules. Accordingly, the Participant expressly accepts that any costs, expenses or other services incurred by him/her with respect to the prize (particularly with respect to travel) that are not included as part of the prize shall be for his/her own account. The Label furthermore accepts no liability for damages caused by the Participant or due to use of the prize and is hereby indemnified against all such claims from third parties.

9. No equivalent value in cash will be paid out for non-cash prizes.

10. If the Participant is in breach of any special competition rules or these Terms and Conditions, the Label is entitled at any time to exclude the Participant from the competition without prior notice.

11. No legal recourse is permitted.

12. If any provision of these General Terms and Conditions shall be invalid, the remaining provisions shall remain unaffected. The law of the Federal Republic of Germany is applicable. Where the Participant is resident outside the Federal Republic of Germany, it is hereby agreed that the express place of jurisdiction shall be the registered office of the Label.
