About

Belgian harpist Anneleen Lenaerts is one of the leading soloists of her instrument. In 2010 she was appointed Principal Harpist of the Vienna Philharmonic. She won no fewer than twenty-three prizes, amongst them the “Grand Prix International Lily Laskine”. Hailed by Télérama, France, as “the new Prince of the clarinet”, Dionysis Grammenos was the first ever wind player to win the Grand Prix d’Eurovision from the European Broadcasting Union.

Anneleen Lenaerts released a first album on Warner Classics in 2014, with concertos by Jongen, Glière and Rodrigo. For this second album, Anneleen and Dionysis selected some of the most beautiful Romantic chamber music pages,   amongst them Schumann’s Fantasiestücke, op.73, and Romanzen, op.94, and Schubert’s Arpeggione Sonata, D821.
 
Western art music has, in one way or another, always been recreative. It is about the spark between the musician(s) and the composer, be this through brilliant extemporisation on an early music Urtext, or a beautifully expressive performance of a Romantic work. Rarer instrumental combinations have always gravitated notably towards transcriptions. Sensitively-chosen transcriptions shed new light on their originals, because of the sounds, colours and identities they bring to the text. In the case of the harp and the clarinet, these colours are warmly unified, profoundly evocative of the works’ epoch, and of the emotional intensity of the music itself.
