Recordings

Bernard Hebb has produced some very interesting recordings in his career, the majority of them being in the chamber music area. His first recording was for “Blue Labor Records inc.” in 1977 with Karsten Behrmann, recorder . The recording, “Interlockings”, presents modern music for recorder and guitar, which includes 2 solo offerings for guitar and 1 recorder solo.

As “Duo Geminiani”, a 15 year association with oboist Helmut Schaarschmidt started and brought forth 5 recordings, 3 of them were for oboe and guitar as a duo: *“Music for Oboe and Guitar” (Musik für Oboe und Gitarre), *“Music at the Court of Ludwig the XIV” (Musik am Hofe des Sonnenkönigs) and *“Serenade”. The other 2 Recordings with Schaarschmidt were CDs: “Oboe Sonatas of the Italian Baroque” (Oboen-Sonaten des italienischen Barock) with Gunter Ribke, violoncello and “Concertante Baroque Music” (Konzertante Barockmusik) with Brooks de Wetter Smith, flute and Gunter Ribke, violoncello.

Gunter Ribke was Bernard Hebb´s violoncello partner on the CD recording “Romance”, presenting the works of Peter I. Tschaikovsky and Enrique Granados.

*“Music for Two Guitars” (Musik für zwei Gitarren) is a 1986 recording with former student Klaus Wollny. The CD recording, “Guitar Impressions” (music for two guitars), is with his present duo partner Finn Svit, and is a 2001 release. After a concert tour in Mexico with guitarist Gabriel Guillén in 2004, another duet recording was produced under the title of “t.w.i.l.i.g.h.t” and released in 2005.

“Guitar Music of the 17th and 20th Centuries” (Gitarrenmusik des 17. Jahrhunderts und 20. Jahrhunderts) and “Virtuoso Folklore for Guitar” (Virtuose Folklore für Gitarre) are the 2 solo recordings that were released in the 1980s. Bernard Hebb’s last solo recording was 2008 and carries the title “Dedications”, (Modern Styles for solo Guitar).

Most of the recorded music that Bernard Hebb has released on vinyl or CD, has either been recorded very seldom, or for the first time, and has a wide range of styles: ancient music, modern music and compositions basied on folkloristic elements.

* Records that were later released as CDs.
