Origins
The title of this album, Origins, is meaningful to us on many levels. It’s our debut album, recorded in Montreal where we first met in 2012. It reflects our Canadian origins by including music by two of our favourite Canadian composers. It is inspired by the heritage of our instruments, as the traditions of both flute and harp were greatly influenced by French music. And it marks the beginning of our journey towards more recording projects, repertoire commissions, and new collaborations. We hope you enjoy listening to this album as much as we loved making it.---Le titre de cet album, Origins, est significatif pour nous à plusieurs égards. Il s’agit de notre premier album et il a été enregistré à Montréal, où nous nous sommes rencontrés pour la première fois en 2012. Il reflète nos origines en tant que Canadiennes puisqu’il comporte de la musique de deux de nos compositeurs canadiens favoris. Cet album est aussi inspiré de l’héritage de nos instruments ; en effet les traditions de la flute et de la harpe ont été fortement influencées par la musique française. Il marque le début d’une série de projets d’enregistrement, de commandes auprès de compositeurs actuels, et de nouvelles collaborations. Nous espérons que vous prendrez autant de plaisir à écouter cet album que nous en avons eu à le faire.<img class="alignnone size-medium wp-image-1770" src="http://leaf-music.ca/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/FACTORCANADA-300x50.png" alt="" width="300" height="50" /> <img class="alignnone size-medium wp-image-1771" src="http://leaf-music.ca/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/CCFA_RGB_colour_e-300x55.jpg" alt="" width="300" height="55" />

Haydn: Cello Concertos Nos. 1 & 2

He has distinguished himself as one of the finest and most versatile instrumentalists of his generation, performing to critical acclaim as soloist, recitalist, orchestral principal, recording artist and chamber musician. He is currently Principal Cellist of the Los Angeles Philharmonic and is in demand around the world as a soloist, chamber musician and clinician. This recording is a collaboration with New York conductor Joel Eric Suben and the Moravian Philharmonic Orchestra recorded at Reduta Conceret Hall in Olomuc, Czech Republic.It was in this spirit of personalized composition that Haydn wrote his Cello Concerto in C major, Hob. VIIb:1, for the Esterházy family. The piece was unknown to modern audiences until 1961, when a copy of the score was uncovered. Since that time, it has become a staple of the cello repertoire, championed by many of the world’s greatest cellists. Robert deMaine adds his name to that list with this lush recording. Haydn’s Cello Concerto in D major, Hob. VIIb:2 was written for the Esterházy orchestra’s principal cellist Antonín Kraft, who is said to have had a beautiful singing tone, expressive phrasing, and an explosive technique, especially in the cello’s upper register. All of this is realized once again in this fresh performance from Robert deMaine.

Composers trained in the Italian art music of the time borrowed traditional Celtic melodies and used them to create musical hybrids which owed as much to the ornamental stylings of Corelli as to the fiddle and lute traditions of Scotland. Strangely, the actual Celtic composers, arrangers and publishers of the period, many of whom synthesized the traditional idioms of their native culture with real flair and affection, are often overlooked in explorations of what was dubbed the “Scots drawing room style” by the eighteenth-century music publisher James Johnson. The goal of this recording is to bring attention to these over-looked composers. The programme includes works by James Oswald, General John Reid, Edward Jones, William McGibbon, Turlough O’Carolan, and excerpts from the Rowallan and Straloch lute books.
