    Emil Gilels

    “In June 2017, when I have to perform in Moscow, I meet Kirill Gilels, grandson of the famous pianist Emil Gilels. He has listened to what our Phoenix Mastering restoration process can accomplish and gives us a list of the years and locations of his grandfather’s unpublished recordings. In Berlin, Moscow, St. Petersburg, we discover a heritage that amazes us with the quality and consistency of Emil Gilels’ piano playing. We are undoubtedly facing one of the greatest musicians of the 20th century. It is finally in Amsterdam, thanks to the determination of Piet Tullenaar, that we manage to extract five recitals that the pianist gave between 1975 and 1980 at the Concertgebouw and which everyone had forgotten existed. As we audition the tapes one by one in the studio allocated to us, neither Piet Tullenaar, nor Michel Navarra, nor myself exchange a word. What a beauty!” F. D’Oria-Nicolas

    Sarah Vaughan

    It is at a very special moment in Sarah Vaughan’s life that this double recital, recorded on November 9, 1969 at the Berlin Philharmonie, takes place.
    To everyone’s astonishment, this small, clumsy 45-year-old silhouette will sign that evening one of the most masterful stage performances of her career that could be captured by a recording. In almost two hours, she will silence all reticence by proving how much her approach to music remains eminently topical. Surrounded with an elegance as discreet as it is stimulating by a trio that is a past master in the art of understatement, free of mannerisms, still as virtuosic as ever, developing her vocal technique to the highest degree throughout her incredible range, between naturalness and sophistication, simplicity and refinement, Sarah Vaughan is astonishing. Sarah Vaughan resolutely favours sentimental melodies, making her warm, supple, suave and swinging voice the ultra-sensitive seismograph of the whole range of mixed feelings.
