CD ECM Records Gidon Kremer - Mieczyslaw Weinberg: Chamber Symphonies & Piano Quintet

2017

Gidon Kremer - vioara, dirijor
Andrei Pushkarev - percutie
Kremerata Baltica

Mieczysław Weinberg:
- Chamber Symphony No. 3 Op. 151
- Chamber Symphony No. 2 Op. 147
- Chamber Symphony No. 1 Op. 145
- Piano Quintet Op. 18
- Chamber Symphony No. 4 Op. 153

This new set leaves you wondering why a composer of such consistently intense, emotionally direct music remained virtually unknown in the West for his entire career. […] through it all, Weinberg’s own voice comes through in long, soaring string lines, and textures that are invitingly sumptuous but also full of mystery. What makes the first three chamber symphonies especially fascinating is that they are early and late works simultaneously. In each case, Weinberg used a youthful chamber piece as a template, with trims, additions and reordering, along with broad rescoring. They superimpose an older man’s perspective on the youthful vision of the original work, yielding a moving balance of energy and world-weariness. [ Allan Kozinn, The Wall Street Journal ]

CD ECM Records Kayhan Kalhor, Erdal Erzincan: The Wind

2006

Kayhan Kalhor Kamanche
Erdal Erzincan Baglama
Ulas Özdemir Divan Baglama

This Zen-like approach yields a powerful, serene music that builds in waves of sinuous bowed melodies, which often sound like weeping, muscular plucked phrases of great rhythmic oomph, and hypnotic loops of perfect synchronicity. The duo’s unity of spirit comes from simply being open to one another and letting natural harmony lead the way. This music speaks to our fundamental human interconnectedness. We would be wise to listen up. [ Sam Prestianni, Jazziz ]

CD ECM Records Kayhan Kalhor, Erdal Erzincan: Kula Kulluk Yakisir Mi

2006

Kayhan Kalhor Kamanche
Erdal Erzincan Baglama

Precious little Persian classical music is available to roots enthusiasts in the West who are eager to improve their knowledge of Iran’s culture. In typical enterprising fashion, ECM has seen fit to record an intimate concert between two master musicians who, while emanating from two distinct cultures, are nonetheless linked by a shared border and a shared heritage that extends here to a musical métissage.[...] Pieces vary between traditionally-inspired and improvised numbers, but seam effortlessly into a cohesive whole. .[...] ECM certainly deserve credit for having the courage to put out this ambitious release and it fits comfortably into their continued support for world roots artists who would not otherwise gain a spotlight for themselves.

2009

Rosamunde Quartett
Andreas Reiner - vioara
Diane Pascal - vioara
Helmut Nicolai - viola
Anja Lechner - violoncel
Christian Gerhaher - bariton

Othmar Schoeck - Notturno (für Streichquartett und eine Singstimme), op. 47

If anything can broaden interest in the art of Swiss composer Othmar Schoeck, it is this wonderful recording of his song cycle for baritone and string quartet. … The work represents Schoeck’s dark night of the soul – an act of introspection that expresses existential doubts in music of the most intimate lyricism. The intricacy with which Schoeck intertwines the voices, vocal and instrumental, is one of his supreme achievements. … Gerhaher, sensitively supported by the Rosamunde Quartet, proves himself a more-than-worthy successor, summoning many of Fischer-Dieskau’s interpretative qualities.

CD ECM Records Alexei Lubimov - Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach: Tangere

2017

Alexei Lubimov - tangent piano


Russian pianist Alexei Lubimov is the rare artist who has been a trailblazer in two directions, both a champion of new music (from Cage to Silvestrov) and a dedicated interpreter of Baroque music with a passion for period instruments. In this remarkable reading of music by CPE Bach, Lubimov responds to the inventiveness of the composer’s fantasies, sonatas and rondos by making full creative use of the sonorities of the tangent piano. Briefly popular in the early 18th century, the tangent piano (whose strings are struck from beneath by wood or metal “tangents” and allowed to vibrate) offered greater expressiveness and intensity than the harpsichord.

John Surman - saxofon sopran si bariton
Arkady Shilkloper - french horn, flugelhorn
Terje Gewelt - contrabas
Jon Christensen - tobe
Hans-Kristian Kjos Sorensen - percutie, marimba

Off-the-cuff interplay and melodic creativity are uppermost in this spontaneously-organised session in which the great British reedman John Surman meets Ukrainian pianist Misha Alperin for the first time. Based now in Oslo, Alperin has become a central figure on the Sandinavian scene, and assembled an impressive 'Nordic' jazz band, that includes the great Jon Christensen on drums.

CD ECM Records Misha Alperin: At Home

2001

Misha Alperin - pian

Music making at its most intimate. The sound of a musician alone, at home, improvising reflectively upon the piano. Of these solo pieces, the Ukraine-born Alperin says, 'The mind was inert, the ears alert, and the music born practically without revisons. Improvisation here is simply the paintbrush, with the help of which you can be honest in the presence of the night.'

CD ECM Records John Surman: Invisible Threads

2018
John Surman - saxofoane, bas clarinet
Nelson Ayres - pian
Rob Waring - vibrafon, marimba

John Surman met pianist Nelson Ayres – known to aficionados of Brazilian jazz for his work with Airto Moreira, Milton Nascimento and Banda Pau Brasil – while on tour in South America. In Oslo, Surman came to know and appreciate the playing of Rob Waring, expatriate US vibraphonist (recently heard on ECM with Mats Eilertsen). The three musicians come together to play a new programme of Surman originals – plus Nelson Ayres’s “Summer Song” – in a session recorded at Oslo’s Rainbow studio in July 2017, produced by Manfred Eicher.

2000
2000

Esbjorn Svensson - pian, claviaturi, percutie
Dan Berglund - bas, percutie
Magnus Ostrom - tobe, percutie

Good Morning Susie Soho peaked on the Swedish pop album chart at 15, above the likes of Whitney Houston, Britney Spears and Pearl Jam, yet was named album of the year for 2000 by the critics in the British magazine Jazzwise. At the same time, Svensson was on the covers of two German jazz magazines, was the cover feature, along with Jacky Terrasson, in the French magazine Jazzman and was hailed by the German news weekly Der Spiegel as the future of jazz piano (together with Brad Mehldau). Clearly then it's not unreasonable to suggest that this album is making waves across Europe. That the cutting edge can live on without necessarily inhabiting volatile experimentation is hardly new, and Svensson's trio, while darkly lyrical, is also fiercely contemporary.

CD ACT Paolo Fresu / Richard Galliano / Jan Lundgren: Mare Nostrum

2007

Paolo Fresu - trumpet, fluegelhorn
Richard Galliano - accordion, bandoneon, accordina
Jan Lundgren - piano

Mare Nostrum's biggest surprise isn't its instrumentation -- a trio of accordion, trumpet and piano -- but how natural the combination sounds in its execution. Of course, Italian trumpeter Paolo Fresu, French accordion player Richard Galliano (who is of Italian offspring), and Swedish pianist Jan Lundgren are well-known, critically praised jazz musicians who have all been known to eschew musical boundaries and defy genre limitations, so the music on Mare Nostrum -- an album co-led by all three -- shouldn't come as a surprise, nor should its quality, and yet not everybody would have expected such marvelous results.

CD ECM Records Ralph Towner: Anthem

2000
Ralph Towner - chitara clasica, double-six

Operating somewhere between contemporary classical and jazz, ... Towner occupies a unique niche in jazz. Known for his carneo on Weather Report’s 1972 album I Sing The Body Electric and work with the classical crossover group Oregon and countless ECM luminaries, he is perhaps best loved for his solo recitals, of which Anthem is the latest – and it’s a gem. There’s a pair of jazz standards, but the majority of the mesmerising set comprises original 12-string and classical guitar pieces, aching, ruminative sketches and developed compositions of such emotional vividness and musical detail that they hardly seem to be the work of one man. The music tugs at the listener’s attention and, with breathtaking balance and control, is always compelling. The acoustic guitar has never sounded better, and neither has this amazing guitar player.

CD ECM Records Egberto Gismonti: Danca Des Cabecas

1977
Egberto Gismonti - chitara, pian, voce, flaute
Nana Vasconcelos - percutie, berimbau, voce

Egberto Gismonti’s Dança das Cabeças (recorded 1976) was the first ECM disc from the brilliant Brazilian guitarist and pianist and the first document of Egberto’s collaboration with percussionist Nana Vasconcelos. It was a revelatory blending of sounds, Gismonti’s finely sculpted compositions irradiated by Nana’s Afro-Brazilian rhythm concept and his rainforest sounds. Dança das Cabeças won the German Record Critics Prize as Album of the Year in 1977.

CD ECM Records Egberto Gismonti: Solo

1979

Egberto Gismonti - chitara acustica, pian, voce, percutie

The sun rises on Solo through the 20-minute “Selva Amazonica, Pau Rolou,” by which Gismonti plants us into his fertile imagination. From that imagination we eventually depart with only the merest glimpses, despite the protracted track times.

The opening suite is replete with resonant 8-string guitar and the floating charm of his wordless singing. Touches such as the latter add hints of remembrance, sealing a child’s proverbial innocence with an adult’s creative stamp. Across this steel-stringed landscape Gismonti imprints the tread of the surdo (a bass drum of African origin), then settles into a pre-dawn hymn against a wavering backdrop of cooking bells.

"Pat Metheny takes a vacation from his Group and performs advanced material with bassist Charlie Haden and drummer Billy Higgins. In addition to Horace Silver's "Lonely Woman," Haden's "Blues for Pat," and three Ornette Coleman tunes, the guitarist plays three of his originals here, including "The Calling," a lengthy exploration of sounds with his guitar synthesizer.

Throughout this excellent set, Metheny and his sidemen engage in close communication and create memorable and unpredictable music. "

CD ECM Records Chick Corea: Return To Forever

1972

Chick Corea - pian electric
Joe Farrell - flaut, saxofon sopran
Flora Purim - voce, percutie
Stan Clarke - bas
Airto Moreira - tobe, percutie

Steve Huey ( AllMusicGuide ): "The legendary first lineup of Chick Corea's fusion band Return to Forever debuted on this classic album (titled after the group but credited to Corea), featuring Joe Farrell on soprano sax and flute, the Brazilian team of vocalist Flora Purim and drummer/percussionist Airto Moreira, and electric bass whiz Stanley Clarke.

It wasn't actually released in the U.S. until 1975, which was why the group's second album, Light as a Feather, initially made the Return to Forever name. Nonetheless, Return to Forever is every bit as classic, using a similar blend of spacy electric-piano fusion and Brazilian and Latin rhythms. It's all very warm, light, and airy, like a soft breeze on a tropical beach -- hardly the sort of firebrand approach to fusion that Miles Davis, Tony Williams, and the Mahavishnu Orchestra were exploring, and far less rooted in funk or rock.

AllMusic (Thom Jurek):
"It's hard to believe that after recording as a leader for 40 years, Dresden: In Concert is Jan Garbarek's first-ever live album. He has recorded sparely in 21st century thus far, but he has toured regularly. For those who think that Garbarek abandoned jazz some time ago, this will be a shock. Dresden is an engaged, kinetic, double-disc, two-hour performance of his quartet playing in the modern jazz idiom and using all of its tenets -- from complex harmonics and rhythmic invention to extended lyric improvisation -- to create a tour de force that honors all the music he holds dear.

CD ECM Records Jan Garbarek Group: Photo With...

1979
Bill Connors - chitara
John Taylor - pian
Eberhard Weber - bas electric
Jon Christensen - tobe

Each piece breaks a piece from the longer title and rolls it out into a photo in its own right. “White Cloud” works its way from the inside out, laying the tender kindling of a solo piano before being set aglow by Garbarek’s deep smolder. Slowly but surely, drums, bass, and electric guitar weave their way into this dreamlike fabric, cinched by soothing legato threads. We keep our eyes on the cover as its “Windows” are hung with lilting harmonies between Garbarek and Taylor. An acoustic guitar speculates through its translucent frame, enhancing Connors’s understated brilliance all the more. “Red Roof” finds Garbarek in a more pentatonic mode in his soaring reverberant passages, while “Wires” gives us a more animated, earthbound concept in which to contemplate the patterns of our psychic dentition.

Places brings together another congregation of musicians that could only come from ECM. Drummer Jack DeJohnette lassoes his scurrying loops to the acoustic hooks of guitarist Bill Connors, while John Taylor supplements most of the cargo with organ. At the helm of this vessel is Jan Garbarek, whose saxophonism starts high and goes only higher. With cumulative notecraft and a heartfelt commitment to atmosphere, he and Taylor unwrap a lush nexus in the stunning opener.
