The Digital Concert Hall of the Berlin Philharmonic features a new video about Michael Hasel. The 13 minutes long short film is not only introducing Michael Hasel, but also his instrument. Michael Hasel also talks about the special challenges of playing the flute. You can find the complete film by Sibylle Strobel here.
On their new CD Beni Araki and Michael Hasel play the entire piano music repertoire of Frederic Chopin’s teacher Josef Elsner. All pieces to two and four hands were recorded on a fortepiano by Michael Rosenberger (Vienna, ca. 1805, copy by Robert Brown, Oberndorf).
The reason for the four CDs comprehensive publication is the 250th birthday of the composer.
In June 2018, a new CD of the Philharmonic Wind Quintet has been released via BIS Records. The world renown ensemble interprets Kalevi Aho’s wind quintets 1 & 2. The CD is available at the website of the label.
