CD ACT Vijay Iyer with Prasanna & Nitin Mitta: Tirtha

2008

Vijay Iyer - pian
Prasanna - chitara, voce
Nitin Mitta - tabla

“Tirtha (the band) formed in response to an invitation. In 2007 I was asked to put together a concert celebrating 60 years of Indian independence. Normally I’ve steered clear of fusion experiments that attempt to mix styles - to “create something,” as John Coltrane famously admonished, “more with labels, you see, than true evolution.” For this event I hoped to avoid those pitfalls, and offer something personal.

CD ECM Records Tigran Mansurian: Quasi parlando

2012

Amsterdam Sinfonietta ( dirijor Candida Thompson )

Tigran Mansurian :
- Double Concerto, for violin, violoncello and string orchestra
- Concerto No. 2, for violin and string orchestra "Four Serious Songs"

Spellbinding work of beauty […] The Mansurian program is a woman’s affair with the young Moldavian violinist joined by cellist Anja Lechner and Amsterdam Sinfonietta conducted by its leader, Candida Thompson. Kopatchinskaja brings resilient radiance to Mansurian’s 2006 hauntingly plaintive Second Violin concerto (‘Four serious Songs’), which takes its cue from late Brahms.

CD ECM Records Keith Jarrett - Bach: Goldberg Variations

1989

Keith Jarrett - clavecin

Johann Sebastian Bach : Goldberg Variations BWV 988

in one of his earlier recorded voyages into the classical world, Keith Jarrett is up against an imposing legacy as he tackles what has become the most famous set of variations in Western music. First, he chooses to play them on a double-manual harpsichord -- which makes the task somewhat easier, avoiding the finger-tangling cross hand difficulties that can trip up a piano performance. Second, he doesn't seem to treat the Goldbergs as a single cycle, inserting pauses between each variation to create 30 little pieces, bookended by the two renditions of the aria (which is perfectly acceptable). He's not in any hurry, not tempted to showboat or flaunt his considerable technique -- and in no way does this jazz pianist try to make the variations swing a la Jacques Loussier. [ AllMusic ]

2015

Zsofia Kornyei - vioara
Janos Pilz - vioara
Zoltan Gal - viola
Judit Szabo - violoncel
Otto Kertesz - violoncel
Alexei Lubimov - pian

In program: Beethoven, Ligeti, Bach, Kurtag, Schnittke, Knaifel

The Keller Quartett’s new recording is a collection of slow movements, recorded from 1995 to 2012. If that puts you in mind of those bloated compilations of yesteryear with titles like ‘Adagio’ and ‘Classical Relaxation,’ fear not: What violinist András Keller and ECM producer Manfred Eicher have created is a series of gestures in which, regardless of style or era, time is made to stand still. […] The final movement of Schnittke’s Piano Quintet (with Alexei Lubimov) is emblematic of the whole project: A lullaby-like theme is gradually layered with dissonance and a sense of tragedy, so that as it fades out, it seems drained of its innocence. It’s not unlike what happens when the Beethoven returns at the end. […] It’s the originality of its conception that makes this disc so worthwhile. [ David Weininger, Boston Sunday Globe ]

2018

Shai Maestro - pian

The first ECM leader date for Shai Maestro (following his label debut with Theo Bleckmann on Elegy) features the gifted pianist fronting his superlative trio with fellow Israeli Ofri Nehemya on drums and Peruvian bassist Jorge Roeder, and also playing alone. A solo interpretation of Matti Caspi’s “My Second Childhood” opens the curtain on a programme of characteristically thoughtful Maestro originals, each one with a story to tell. “Hearing the Shai Maestro Trio is like awakening to a new world”, All About Jazz has suggested.

2001

Christoph Poppen - vioara
The Hilliard Ensemble
Monika Mauch - soprana
David James - contratenor
John Potter - tenor
Gordon Jones - bariton

In music of the baroque era it was popular to use the medium of numbers for conveying secrets and riddles, and Bach studies have illuminated many new 'meanings' in his sacred works. Now 'Morimur' explores the coded references, and hidden messages in his solo violin music, opening a window on Bach's thought at a time when he was deeply affected by the sudden and tragic death of his wife, Maria Barbara, in 1720. Building on the research of Professor Helga Thoene, violinist Christoph Poppen and the Hilliard Ensemble have realised a unique project for ECM New Series: They offer a stunning experience by interweaving the verses of the 'hidden chorales' of the Ciaccona with Bach's harmonically complex violin part.

Working with an incredibly rich harmonic palette, the incisive articulation and collegial homogeneity which the ensemble achieves is remarkable. As one listens to the first section of “Singet dem Herrn” … the combination of terpsichorean grace with contrapuntal fluidity takes the breath away. Even by The Hilliard Ensemble’s elevated standards this is singing of quite extraordinary power. … Captured in the glorious acoustic of the Propstei St Gerold … the kaleidoscopic luminosity of these sui generis works brings the listener irrevocably closer to Bach’s genius.

All four of Arvo Pärt’s symphonies, newly recorded with the NFM Wrocław Philharmonic under the direction his musical accomplice, Tõnu Kaljuste. Each of the symphonies, as the great Estonian composer has noted, is a world unto itself. Heard in chronological order they also tell us much about Pärt’s musical and spiritual journey, and the very different ways in which he has exercised his craft.

2012
Latvian Radio Choir
Vox Clamantis
Sinfonietta Riga
Tui Hirv - soprana
Rainer Vilu - bariton
Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir
Tallinn Chamber Orchestra
Tonu Kaljuste - dirijor

The Adam in Arvo Pärt's Lament (2010) is the one who was cast out of paradise. For the composer he represents "humankind in its entirety and each individual person alike, irrespective of time, epochs, social strata and confession". The text, by Silouan, a monk on Mount Athos, emphasises Adam's pain and grief at his banishment. The mix of Orthodox-style chant, ethereal string writing and block-like vocal writing amalgamates Pärt's most familiar styles, but the whole has more contrast and colour than usual. In this world premiere recording, the Latvian Radio Choir, Vox Clamantis and Sinfonietta Riga perform with admirable commitment. The disc includes shorter choral works such as Alleluia-Tropus, Estonian Lullaby and Christmas Lullaby. [ The Guardian ]

CD ECM Records Arvo Part: The Deer's Cry

2016
ansamblul Vox Clamantis - dirijor Jaan-Eik Tulve

The second ECM New Series album to fully showcase pure-toned Estonian vocal group Vox Clamantis and its artistic director/conductor Jaan-Eik Tulve is devoted to compositions by their great countryman, Arvo Pärt – whose music has been the most performed globally of any living composer over the past five years.

This album – titled The Deer’s Cry after its first track, an incantatory work for a cappella mixed choir – is also the latest in an illustrious line of ECM New Series releases to feature Pärt’s compositions, the very music that inspired Manfred Eicher to establish the New Series imprint in 1984. Along with such classic works as Da pacem Domine the new album includes first-time recordings of the a cappella pieces Drei Hirtenkinder aus Fátima and Habitare Fratres.

Odyssey:
Terje Rypdal - chitara electrica, sintetizatoare, saxofon sopran
Torbjorn Sunde - trombon
Brynjulf Blix - orga
Sveinung Hovensjo - bas
Svein Christiansen - tobe

The electric guitar innovator in the 1970s. This box set in ECM’s Old & New Masters Series collects Terje Rypdal’s two-LP Odyssey album – heard on CD, for the first time, in its entirety, including the much-requested and epically-rocking “Rolling Stone” – and “Unfinished Highballs”, a recently unearthed 1976 radio recording that documents the Norwegian guitarist’s work for his Odyssey quartet and the Swedish Radio Jazz Group. The complete Odyssey may address a longstanding demand, but “Unfinished Highballs” will surprise even Rypdal’s most committed fans. It reveals that not only were many of the markers which would come to define his career already in place, but the intrepid guitarist was already searching for ways to include, rather than exclude, in his approach to composition and performance.

Dimitri Shostakovich: 24 Preludes Op. 34
Lera Auerbach: Arcanum - Sonata For Viola And Piano

Auerbach’s duo version of Shostakovich’s Op. 34 Piano Preludes — a cycle of 24 in all the major and minor keys, on the models of Bach and Chopin — is a wizardly reimagining of its source, and the performance here by her and violist Kim Kashkashian seems to channel the earlier composer’s distinctive sound world. […] As performers, Kashkashian and Auerbach make a superb team, playing with urgency and finely tuned balance. [ Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle ]

CD ECM Records Kim Kashkashian, Keith Jarrett - Bach: 3 Sonaten Fur Viola De Gamba Und Cembalo

1994

Kim Kashkashian - viola de gamba
Keith Jarrett - clavecin

J.S. Bach :
Sonate G-Dur BWV 1027
Sonate D-Dur BWV 1028
Sonate G-Moll BWV 1029

The viola da gamba is an obsolete instrument now, but in Bach's day there were two large families of stringed instruments: the older gambas and the newer violins. Although quite similar in construction and performance technique, the soft, husky sound of the gambas was gradually replaced by the steely brilliance of the violins. Indeed, only one member of the family--the double bass--remains in modern use. Today most artists play the music on either a viola or a cello, since the music can be adapted easily to either. Kashkashian plays the viola, and as she is one of the greatest performers on that instrument around, and given Jarrett's clean and limber accompaniments, she acquits herself with honor and grace in this lovely music.

Timothy Sawyer - voce
Johanna Arnold - voce
Joan Barber - voce

Wayne Hankin - voce, instrumente de suflat
Toby Newman - voce
Nurit Tilles - pian, claviaturi, Hammered Dulcimer

The markedly instrumental approach to the human voice embodied by this ensemble lends itself beautifully to the subject matter at hand. In choosing to eschew words entirely, Monk peers more deeply into the oracular interior of her music. Relying on nascent phonemes such as “na” and “la” in lieu of recognizable vocabularies, she complicates the linearity of her effected nostalgia. Book of Days is all the more haunting for reducing that nostalgia to a liquid state and scooping up as much of it as possible before it seeps out of sight through those very cracks where her music is born.

CD ECM Records Giya Kancheli: Diplipito

2004

Derek Lee Ragin - contratenor

Stuttgarter Kammerorchester , dirijor Dennis Russell Davies

Giya Kancheli:
- Diplipito ( Fur Violoncello, Countertenor Und Orchester )
- Valse Boston ( Fur Klavier Und Streichorchester )

“Diplipito”, pitting countertenor against cello in duets of aching elegy, seems to me one of Kancheli’s most ravishing creations. In “Valse Boston” for piano and strings an ineluctably slow ¾ time merely hints at long-lost dance origins amid images of lament and frustration: the ballrooms of Kanchelia are chill, empty places, probably with glass and rubble on the floor. With Dennis Russell Davies (conductor and dedicatee) at the piano, there are ghosts in “Valse Boston” of Shostakovich’s First Piano Concerto and, in both pieces, of Schubert, whose example has encouraged Kancheli’s recent works towards more direct melodic content. The performances reflect utter dedication from all concerned. [ Calum MacDonald, BBC Music Magazine ]

Says Kancheli, a devout Orthodox Christian, 'When a person goes into achurch, synagogue or mosque where there's not service going on, there's aspecial kind of silence. I want to turn that silence into music.' InKancheli's hands the sounds of silence are hauntingly eloquent.' --[ Michael Walsh, Time Magazine ]

The quartet version of "The Seven Last Words" is amongst the most remarkable works of chamber music produced during the 18th century - a highly potent distillation of an already remarkable original. The players of the Rosamunde Quartet, sparing of vibrato, concentrated but unforced of manner, understand that they're hear dealing with a work that hasn't so much as a single redundant gesture.

Claude Debussy :
- Préludes (Premier Livre)
- Trois Nocturnes
- Prélude à l'après-midi d'un faune
- Préludes (Deuxième Livre)

Debussy is closer to the expressionism of Schoenberg than to the chiselled sonorities of a Chopin or the extravagant virtuosity of a Liszt, even if his refined art can still be seen in the line of tradition of 19th-century music. This is frequently forgotten in the interpretation as well as the assessment of his oeuvre. Debussy himself decried the concept of musical impressionism because he feared, rightly, that superficial refinement would degenerate into musical mist, concealing the subtleties of a new musical idiom and its structural logic. Thus, for example, instead of heading his 24 “Préludes” in two books with programmatic titles in his autograph score, he appended them at the bottom of the individual pieces.
