Celestial Gardens

Dreamy moods with soft instruments (flute, harp, strings, etc.), recorded in the special musical just intonation tuning system, in which so-called "micro-intervals", small tone steps within the half tone limit, can be heard, giving the music a very unique, exotic sound stimulus.

The idea of ​​a sphere of radiant beauty and inspires feelings of happiness for centuries captured the imagination of poets and musicians. Often it takes shape in the vision of heavenly gardens where flowers bloom and seductive perfumes are interwoven with blissful sounds. In order to  express
such an idea musically, soft instruments such as flutes, harps, strings, etc. are used, which are tuned in just intonation, instead of the usual tempered tone system of twelve tones, a complex procedure, which expands the number of notes to more than double. The benefit is apart from a clearer sound the so-called micro-intervals such as thirds, quarter and eighth tones, which become audible. Those fine pitch differences as they are found in non-European sound systems lead the listener into dreamy moods.

Pearls of Celtic Songs

Love songs and hymns, mainly sung (soprano and/or tenor), complemented with instrumentals.

Once again Stamm selects meditative and powerful melodies from collections of Celtic songs for arrangements with soloistic singing (tenor and soprano), sometimes alternating with choral singing. The sung titles predominate in this production. As singer the folk singer Mark Brachtendorf could be won, his voice and way of singing exactly corresponding to the character of this music. To some of these orally transmitted folk melodies, the two most important poets of the Celtic Culture, Thomas Moore in Ireland and Robert Burns in Scotland, have written lyrics, among these the famous love song "Ae fond kiss". Accompanied by concert harp and Irish harp, small and big tin whistle, wooden flute and violin evoke the mystical sphere of this song collection.

Songs of Celtic Music

Further beautiful melodies from Ireland, Scotland and Brittany, here also with vocals (soprano and choir)

As a sequel of the successful CD "Spirit of Celtic Music" this second production presents a collection of some of the most beautiful songs of the Celtic Culture. Rightly the Celtic peoples claim to possess the most beautiful heritage of folk melodies. It has retained its character throughout the history of European music and proves the deep mystical sense of the Celtic peoples. Differently to the first production the inclusion of vocals is characteristic.Three tunes are sung in arrangements for choir, two more pieces for solo soprano. The meditative sound of this recording obtains its typical folkloric color through the inclusion of the folk instruments clarsach (celtic harp) and tin whistle.

Spirit of Celtic Music

Some of the most beautiful minstrel melodies from Ireland, Scotland and Brittany in meditative chamber music arrangements

The songs recorded here from Ireland, Scotland and Brittany express the deep mystical sense of the Celtic peoples through the simple beauty of their melodies the. Some compositions are very old, some may have been composed for spiritual practices of bards. The figures and landscapes sung in these "minstrels" are regarded as symbols of a higher, transcendental world that touches you deeply.  The instrumental arrangements are played on modern classical instruments like violin, flute, piano, strings and harp. The title sequence is harmoniously complemented through own compositions by Hans-André Stamm. Elevating music that evokes a desire for authenticity and can accompany us to realms of a higher ideality.

Orgelklang und Flötenzauber

Organ sound and flute magic


 

This CD has been recorded in July 2011 at the great Klais organ in the munster church Bonn. Highlights of virtuoso and lyrical pieces for this rare instrumental combination. Works by Vivaldi, Marais, Fauré, Bruch, Stamm and others

Any organ, whether in a small village church or in a large cathedral, incorporates flute registers. So why adding a flute as solo instrument? Because it complements the flute pipes nicely: sometimes sounding just like an additional register, but then magically emerging from the organ sound with its specific technical possibilities and „real“ flute sound. This particularly holds for the piccolo flute, which is mainly played in the orchestra but rarely as solo or chamber instrument. Several works of Hans-André Stamm and other composers demonstrate that the grand flute‘s little sister, sounding warm andrich in the lower pitch as well as clear and brilliant in the high notes, enriches the organ sound dramatically. The grand flute itself lends its special timbre to the organ in a few other pieces. Several solo works for organ round up this recording.   Hans-André Stamm (*1958) 1. Echoes of Joy  2. Spring Dance  3. Pick Five Gabriel Fauré (1845–1924) / Hans-André Stamm  4. Cantilène (Flöte)  Max Bruch (1838–1920) arr. Stamm  5. Schwedischer Tanz  Marin Marais (1656–1728) arr. Stamm  6. Le Basque  Hans-André Stamm  7. Paraphrase on "Suo Gan"  Ennio Morricone (*1928)  8. Gabriel’s Oboe  Hans-André Stamm  9. Toccata Giocosa (Organ solo)  10. Sicilienne from „Jesu, meine Freude“ (Jesus, my joy) for organ  11. Take Seven (Flute)  12. Doina  Markus Karas (*1961)  13. Petite Suite pour Flûte et Orgue (Flute/Piccolo flute)  Hans-André Stamm  14. Rêve (Organ solo)  15. Variationen on a Breton Noël  Antonio Vivaldi (1678–1741)  16.

Concerto Maestoso                      

 

recording from 2010 with Martin Schröder, trumpet and Hans-André Stamm at the Mönch organ in St. Andreas Leverkusen-Schlebusch with guest musician Markus Hengesbach (Meschede), timpani. Works by Bach, Händel, Scarlatti, Albinoni, Mouret and Stamm

Martin Schröder and Hans-André Stamm present virtuosic - serene and lyrical baroque music of the Italian master composers Alessando Scarlatti und Tomaso Albinoni. Also from the baroque era, but in a different musical language are the festive dances by the French composer Jean-Joseph Mouret and spiritual cantata pieces by Johann Sebastian Bach. Actual compositions by Hans-André Stamm merging folkloristic elements of European, Latin american and indian Music into a exciting modern romantic musical language form a refreshing contrast to the classical works.
