Grand Piano celebrates its 10th anniversary

This month marks the 10th anniversary of Grand Piano Records, the label celebrated for exploring undiscovered gems of the piano repertoire.

Launched in 2012 Grand Piano was established with the mission to explore and discover unknown and neglected repertoire for the piano. The label’s specialty is complete piano cycles of lesser-known composers, whose works might otherwise have remained unknown and unrecorded. Such composers include Leopold Koželuch, Hélène de Montgeroult, Alexander Tcherepnin, Blagoje Bersa, Mieczsław Weinberg, and many others. Grand Piano artists are often authorities on these composers and experts on the chosen repertoire, giving their performances a unique stamp of authority.

To mark this significant milestone, Grand Piano has planned a raft of anniversary projects that will take place throughout the rest of this year, including:

  • Five special boxed sets: collections of award-winning albums from its catalogue, starting with a 10-CD box of works by female composers down the centuries, and 6 CDs spotlighting ‘The Age Golden of Pianist Composers’.
  • A dynamic playlist of 88 representative tracks representing the 88 keys on a modern piano on Spotify and other streaming platforms.
  • Curated playlists will showcase works by female composers.
  • Several online events and livestreams throughout the year with Grand Piano artists.

Artist of the Month – Giorgio Koukl

‘It’s a pleasure to celebrate the first ten years of Grand Piano. Having had the honour to be one of its artists right from its launch, I have so far released some 20 albums. Continuing my cherished project of discovering lesser-known artists from the Parisian Belle Époque, I plan to record the piano works of Vittorio Rieti during the course of this year.’

Giorgio Koukl

Giorgio Koukl
© Zdeněk Žalský

Giorgio Koukl is a Czech pianist/harpsichordist and composer. He studied at the Conservatoires in both Zürich and Milan, where he took part in the masterclasses of Nikita Magaloff, Jacques Février and Stanislas Neuhaus, and with Rudolf Firkušný, friend and advocate of Czech composer Bohuslav Martinů. It was through Firkušný that Koukl first encountered Martinů’s music, prompting him to search out his compatriot’s solo piano works.

He has since adopted these works as an important part of his concert repertoire and is now considered one of the world’s leading interpreters of Martinů’s piano music. As a logical continuation of this work, Koukl has recorded the complete solo piano works of Paul Le Flem, Alexander Tcherepnin, Arthur Lourié, Vítězslava Kaprálová, Witold Lutosławski and, more recently, Alexandre Tansman, Vittorio Rieti and Tibor Harsányi.

SZCZERBIŃSKI, A.: Piano Works (Complete), Vol. 2
Giorgio Koukl’s second volume of Szczerbiński’s complete piano music reveals yet more discoveries by this unjustly neglected composer.
‘It is nice to hear a forgotten voice from the world post-Chopin, Mendelssohn… Giorgio Koukl plays very competently, making a good case for these pieces.’
MusicWeb International
‘The brilliant technique of the pianist, paired with resonant sound, remarkable precision and an acute sensibility to rhythm, is particularly suited to the aesthetics of the “École de Paris”.’
Classica ★★★★★
‘Giorgio Koukl [has] fabulous articulation, a superb touch, and gets to the emotional heart of the music performed.’
The Art Music Lounge
‘Giorgio Koukl…certainly plays this well.’
American Record Guide
‘Giorgio Koukl’s chronicle of [Kaprálová’s] life at the piano provides compelling listening.’
Musical Toronto ★★★★
‘It brings a great benefit to hear how Giorgio Koukl captures the music of this French composer … the pianist generates a stupendous and delicate feeling for the shimmering nuances.’
Piano News
‘An exciting composer, exciting repertoire, marvellously performed. Recording, layout and packaging are equally flawless. What can one say other than: Recommended.’
‘Koukl proves himself a most sympathetic advocate for Tcherepnin’s music, whether on a small or large scale.’
International Piano
‘An easy introduction to the breadth of Tcherepnin’s work, instructive for anyone who might have overlooked him in today’s crowded world of piano music.’
Facts & Arts
‘If anyone who doesn’t know Tcherepnin’s music hears this disc they will find themselves completely captivated and will want to own the entire set. Once again Giorgio Koukl manages totally to inhabit the music.’
MusicWeb International
‘Taking us through this musical journey Giorgio Koukl has demonstrated his prowess as a pianist from the most demanding pieces to the most delicately tiny fragment.’

John Philip Sousa Complete Music for Wind Band

John Philip Sousa (1854–1932) personified turn-of-the-century America, the comparative innocence and brash energy of a still new nation. His ever-touring band represented America across the globe and brought music to hundreds of American towns.

Sousa’s compositions spread his fame further. His marches The Stars and Stripes Forever!, The Washington Post and Semper Fidelis, which was adopted by the US Marine Corps, are universally acknowledged as the best of the genre. He was an exceptionally inventive composer of over 200 works, including symphonic poems, suites, operas and operettas.


The final volume in the Complete Music for Wind Band series explores some of the lesser-known corners of Sousa’s output. These include fantasies and humoresques that use renowned classical works and fashionable melodies of their day. Also featured are the rarely heard processional hymn with choir We March, We March to Victory and The Fancy of the Town, which offers up a world tour of traditional and popular songs.

Keith Brion has published many editions for wind band, including the music of Charles Ives, Percy Grainger and D.W. Reeves, and is the author of numerous articles. He is the author of a series of Sousa publications and curator of the Sousa collection at the Library of Congress.


‘Keith Brion has made a career of championing the music of John Philip Sousa… Through study of films and recordings, he imitates Sousa’s conducting style and handles the music the way Sousa did.’
American Record Guide on Vol. 1

‘Brion’s conducting seems impeccable. He imbues each work with vitality, excitement, and full-throated military flair.’
Classical Candor on Vol. 11

‘Keith Brion’s conducting is vigorously animated, drawing some superb playing from his Birmingham ensemble. Also, the clear and beautifully balanced recording is an added bonus to the enjoyment.’
Classical Music Daily on Vol. 21

Marin Alsop to lead the Vienna RSO until 2025

Marin Alsop
© Theresa Wey

Just announced – Marin Alsop’s appointment as chief conductor of the ORF Vienna Radio Symphony Orchestra (Vienna RSO) is extended until the summer of 2025.

One of the foremost conductors of our time, Marin Alsop represents a powerful and inspiring voice. Convinced that music has the power to change lives, she is internationally recognised for her innovative approach to programming and audience development, deep commitment to education, and championing of music’s importance in the world. The first woman to serve as the head of a major orchestra in the United States (Baltimore), South America (São Paulo, Brazil), Austria (Vienna) and Britain (Bournemouth), she is, as The New York Times put it, not only ‘a formidable musician and a powerful communicator’ but also ‘a conductor with a vision.’

In their first year of collaboration, Alsop and the Vienna RSO recorded works by Paul Hindemith and Hans Werner Henze for Naxos, and both were met with critical acclaim:

‘Alsop presents an exemplary Hindemith album in her transversal approach in the art of the composer … this album is a great success.’
‘The ORF Symphoniker and Marin Alsop succeed well in making audible Henze’s intention, the pain, sarcasm and terror inherent in the etchings.’
Pizzicato ★★★★★

Recognised with multiple Gramophone Awards, Marin Alsop’s extensive discography includes acclaimed Naxos cycles of Brahms with the London Philharmonic, Dvořák with the Baltimore Symphony, and Prokofiev with the São Paulo Symphony.

[8-Disc Boxed Set]
‘Alsop, whether she’s in Bournemouth, Baltimore or São Paulo, always there’s that sense of enthusiastic authority, never overbearing, which works in the music’s favour.’
[6-Disc Boxed Set]
‘Alsop’s Prokofiev Symphony cycle is among the finest.’
MusicWeb International
‘The LPO’s particular kind of lustrous focus suits Brahms’ music beautifully, and it responds to Alsop’s direction with playing that’s way beyond routine.’
Classic FM ★★★★
‘Alsop’s Ninth is robust and energetic, with muscular rhythms and stalwart tempos.’
‘Alsop’s light and classical touch makes Gustav Mahler’s First Symphony sound more youthful than it really is. Her control and devotion to this approach is remarkable.’
American Record Guide
‘A fine, distinctive reading of Carl Orff’s most popular work, brilliantly recorded.’
The Penguin Guide
‘Kevin Puts is a contemporary American composer. His Symphony No. 2 is movingly performed under the direction of Marin Alsop, alongside some of his lighter music.’
BBC Music Magazine ★★★★
2.110399 (DVD)
‘The orchestra is superb, excellent video spotlights.’

Ingmar Bergman’s film Persona in a powerful new stage production

The celebrated actor Elisabet Vogler has fallen silent. She doesn’t speak anymore. Together with her nurse Alma the two unequal women spend a carefree summer – until the situation between them shifts. Where is the line between one’s own identity and assigned roles? How is it possible to slip into a different life? Director Anna Bergmann raises questions about power, trust and role images and presents an excellent adaption of Ingmar Bergman’s experimental film.

THE08066 (DVD)

‘Corinna Harfouch renders her roles believable and compelling.’

The New York Times

‘Anna Bergmann has succeeded in producing an extraordinarily rich and visually powerful production.’

Vigüela’s A la manera artesana is #1 in Transglobal World Music Chart


ARC Music’s release, A la manera artesana, featuring the Spanish ensemble Vigüela earned the top spot in this month’s Transglobal World Music Chart (TWMC)!

Vigüela have found an audience in both rural and urban Spain. For the latter, they are like a window on a world that modern Spain, and the rest of the world, knows nothing about. Indeed, life in El Carpio de Tajo (their hometown) is quite simple and mainly revolves around vegetables, fruit, sheep and goats. The name of the band, Vigüela, is a local term for guitar. The band started around 1986 and has now recorded nine albums; the last three have been released internationally on ARC Music.

Other titles from Naxos Music Group also appeared on this month’s list:

Jaakko Kuusisto (1974–2022)

Finnish musician Jaakko Kuusisto died on 23 February 2022. Diagnosed with a brain tumour in the summer of 2020, his condition deteriorated earlier this year and he was hospitalised.

The conductor, composer and violinist enjoyed an extensive career that was launched by a series of successes in international violin competitions in the 1990s. Kuusisto’s conducting repertoire was versatile and ranged from the Baroque to the latest new works, regardless of genre. He worked with many leading orchestras, including the Minnesota Orchestra; Sydney, Melbourne and Adelaide Symphony Orchestras; National Arts Centre Orchestra in Ottawa; NDR Hannover, DeFilharmonie in Belgium; Chamber Orchestras of Tallinn and Lausanne; Helsinki, Turku and Tampere Philharmonic Orchestras; Lahti Symphony Orchestra, as well as the Avanti! Chamber Orchestra.

He worked regularly in opera as well; in 2016 he orchestrated and conducted Indigo at the Finnish National Opera, a work written by Eicca Toppinen and Perttu Kivilaakso of Apocalyptica. Kuusisto was also chief conductor of the Kuopio Symphony Orchestra in 2018. Kuusisto’s compositions consist of nearly 40 works: chamber and vocal music, orchestral pieces, operas, as well as music for films. His Violin Concerto, written for Elina Vähälä, became an international success with performances by, among others, the Minnesota, Detroit and Singapore orchestras.

His discography on the Ondine label included J.S. Bach’s violin concertos and concertos by Finnish composers with the Tapiola Sinfonietta. He also reconstructed and conducted orchestral works by Armas Järnefelt.

He is survived by his wife and two children from a previous marriage.

‘Arent’t there already enough fine performances of the Bach violin concertos? Of course there are…but then again, there should always be space for playing like this.’
BBC Radio 3
‘All around, this is a significant release for Nordic cineastes.’
Cinemusica ★★★★
‘Rantala is an excellent pianist – superbly agile, and sensitive in his touch – and [Jaakko Kuusisto is] a fine conductor.’
‘You discover repertoire of great variety, stimulating and on an exceptional level both artistically and in terms of the quality of the works.’

Valencia Baryton Project to bring rare instrument on tour in the US!

With Matthew Baker, one of only a handful of baryton players worldwide, the Valencia Baryton Project has performed across the globe, introducing the instrument that was considered to be the pinnacle of aristocratic music during the Classical era. In April they will tour the United States across 14 cities in seven states.


The Valencia Baryton Project comprises musicians from the Palau de les Arts Reina Sofía opera house in Valencia and the Opéra Orchestre National Montpellier, who came together with the vision of performing the almost 160 works by Joseph Haydn written for the baryton, a cross between a viola da gamba and a lirone. At the heart of the ensemble is the traditional baryton trio – baryton, viola and cello – for which Haydn wrote 123 works of outstanding beauty during his time as court composer for Prince Esterházy of Austria. Their Naxos release was named one of’s ‘Favourite Classical Albums’ of 2021.


‘The six trios included have been very well chosen to demonstrate Haydn’s inexhaustible creative fantasy. While Matthew Baker has pride of place as the player of Nikolaus’s instrument, Haydn…has ensured the others are by no means reduced to accompanying lackeys. The trio prove themselves a well attuned team, always alert to the music’s mercurial nature.’

The Strad

‘The interpretation of each one of the instrumentalists is impeccable, not only at the individual level, but as a whole, showing exquisite chamber music work, without seeking individual prominence, displaying a performance as a trio as compact as it is precise and balanced.’

Ritmo ★★★★★

Watch excerpt – Trio in G major, Hob.XI:55 – III. Finale: Allegro di molto
Watch excerpt – Trio in D major, Hob.XI:61 – II. Andantino

Kevin Puts’ new opera The Hours set for world premiere

Award-winning composer Kevin Puts’ latest operatic work, an adaptation of Michael Cunningham’s novel The Hours, is a co-commission of the Philadelphia Orchestra and the Metropolitan Opera and slated to premiere in 2022. The cast will include opera superstars Renée Fleming and Joyce DiDonato, and Tony-winner Kelli O’Hara. The libretto is by Greg Pierce.

Kevin Puts

Winner of the 2012 Pulitzer Prize for his debut opera Silent Night, Kevin Puts’ works have been commissioned, performed and recorded by leading ensembles and soloists throughout the world, including Joshua Bell, Yo-Yo Ma, Dame Evelyn Glennie, the Metropolitan Opera, the New York Philharmonic, the Tonhalle Orchester (Zurich), the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra, and the Miro Quartet.

‘Puts and Campbell have packed the serious theme into a complex score, very colorful and modern in style, with painfully dissonant and wonderfully lyrical moments.’
Pizzicato ★★★★
‘His Symphony No. 2 – a musical illustration of the events of 9/11 – is movingly performed under the direction of Marin Alsop, alongside some of his lighter music.’
BBC Music Magazine ★★★★

Sara Aimée Smiseth talks about Agathe Backer Grøndahl’s piano works

We recently chatted with Norwegian pianist Sara Aimée Smiseth about her new Grand Piano release of piano works by Agathe Backer Grøndahl. This is her debut solo recording.

Hailed by George Bernard Shaw as one of the 19th century’s greatest virtuoso pianists, Agathe Backer Grøndahl was also a pioneer among women composers, juggling marriage, motherhood and an extensive career. She was taught by Liszt in Weimar, and as one of Norway’s most respected composer-pianists, created a large body of work that displays colourful stylistic variety and poetic breadth. The beautiful Sérénade from Trois Morceaux, Op. 15 may well be Backer Grøndahl’s most popular piano composition, but her concert études are virtuoso masterpieces; the folk-tune arrangements drawn from her Op. 30 and Op. 33 sets illustrate her perceptive absorption of her country’s folk music. The remarkable fairy-tale suite I blaafjellet, Op. 44 is possibly the first impressionist piece by a Norwegian composer.

Exclusively available on Apple Music. Click on any of the images to visit the playlist.

Also stream Grand Piano’s Three Centuries of Female Composers playlist, featuring music by Agathe Backer Grøndahl, Anne-Louis Brillon de Jouy, Vítězslava Kaprálová and more.

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel Season 4

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel

It’s the late 1950s and Miriam ‘Midge’ Maisel has everything she has ever wanted – the perfect husband, two kids and an elegant apartment on New York’s Upper West Side. Her seemingly idyllic life takes a surprising turn when she discovers a hidden talent she didn’t previously know she had – stand-up comedy. This revelation changes her life forever as she begins a journey that takes her from her comfortable life on the Upper West Side through the cafes and nightclubs of Greenwich Village as she makes her way through the city’s comedy industry on a path that could ultimately lead her to a spot on the ‘Tonight Show’ couch. The series was created by Amy Sherman-Palladino (‘Gilmore Girls’).

The Golden Globe and Emmy®-winning series is back for its fourth season, featuring excerpts from Wagner’s Tannhäuser, Haydn’s ‘Military’ Symphonyand Britten’s Friday Afternoons, courtesy of Source/Q and Naxos!

2022 Nominations for Swedish Grammis

We’re pleased to share that two titles from the Naxos Music Group labels were recently nominated for this year’s Swedish Grammis!

Best Classical Recording
Swedish Society SCD1176
Sofie Asplund, Piano
Children’s Music
Naxos 8.574384
Swedish Chamber Orchestra

This release is both Sofie Asplnud’s and the Lunds Kammarsolistes’ debut recording. The idea for this album is to put together musical works based on poems by the two poets Arthur Rimbaud and Paul Verlaine. The story about their stormy relationship has been told many times in literature, movies and theatre. Here we’d like to tell it in a different way, through the works Britten’s Les Illuminations and Debussy’s Arriettes Oublieés, heard in a brand new arrangement for strings by Tobias Broström.


The Swedish Chamber Orchestra’s regular season includes children’s music performances at the Örebro Concert Hall. Over the years, thousands of kids and adults have joined the fun, singing along to the songs and experience a live concert in a large concert hall. ‘My Big Love’ consists of music featured in these concerts, as well as newly written songs. These pieces provide security, arouse curiosity and inspire dance, play and closeness to children.
