July-September 2016 Grammy-award-winning music producer
July-September 2016

July was a TV month, with a week in Turin with Jonas Kaufmann making a video around a concert of Italian songs. This was for a ZDF (German TV) broadcast in November and a later DVD release on SONY. Shortly afterwards another pleasant week was spent in Baden-Baden preparing and recording a gala concert for ZDF. An all-star line-up of singers was feastured: Anja HarterosEkaterina GubanovaJonas Kaufmann and Bryn Terfel, accompanied by the Badische Staatskapelle and conducted by the exuberant Marco Armiliato. In August Chris was in Hannover recording one of his favourite pianists, Judith Jauregui in an imaginitive programme of works by Scriabin, Szymanowski and Chopin. In September Chris recorded a new combination of him – harp and piano – and was very pleasantly surprised at how well the instruments harmonised. The program of Piazzola was masterfully and idiomatically performed by the remarkable Duo Praxedis.A couple of weeks later Christopher was again together with Maurizio Pollini for a Debussy program. This recording represents a ‘first’ in that Maurizio was joined by his son Daniele to play the work En Blanc et noir for two pianos.
