CD ECM Records Vox Clamantis/Jaan-Eik Tulve: Filia Sion

2010

Vox Clamantis, dirijor Jaan-Eik Tulve


Estonian ensemble Vox Clamantis brings together singers and instrumentalists who share an interest in Gregorian chant as the basis of all European art music. Their interpretation of medieval music is never purely ‘historical’: while always remaining true to the spirit of this repertoire, the approach to the work and the selection of pieces is contemporary.

CD ECM Records Tigran Mansurian: Quasi parlando

2012

Patricia Kopatchinskaja - vioara
Anja Lechner - violoncel
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 Helena Tulve: Arboles Lloran Por Lluvia

2010

Helena Tulve, Arianna Savall, Charles Barbier, Taniel Kirikal, Marco Ambrosini, Riivo Kallasmaa, NYYD Quartet, Vox Clamantis, Ensemble Hortus Musicus, Jaan-Eik Tulve, Estonian National Symphony Orchestra, Olari Elts


In Tulve’s music the thinking always seems more vertical than horizontal; the predominant mood is introspective, almost meditational, the textures and harmonies beautifully imagined, the sense of pulse and forward momentum often elusive. ‘Extinction des Choses Vues’ for orchestra does build to a massive climax, achieved through weight and intensity rather than movement; the effect is rather like Kaija Saariaho’s music of the 1980s and 90s, and wonderfully achieved.

1997 - 2006

Helena Tulve, NYYD Ensemble, Olari Elts, Arianna Savall, Stockholm Saxophone Quartet, Sven Westerberg, Jrgen Pettersson, Leif Karlborg, Per Hedlund, Emmanuelle Ophle-Gaubert, Mihkel Peske, Silesian String Quartet, Szymon Krzeszowiec, Arkadiusz Kubica, Lukasz Syrnicki, Piotr Janosik


Her music has a real fluid sculptural quality, conceived within a soundworld that is frequently dominated by wind instruments. It’s not music that goes out of its way to be ingratiating, but as this highly impressive collection shows, behind this take-it-or-leave-it façade lurks music of real personality and expressive depth.

CD ECM Records Reto Bieri: Contrechant - Music for Clarinet solo

2010

Reto Bieri - clarinet

Luciano Berio - Lied
Heinz Holliger - Contrechant
Salvatore Sciarrino - Let Me Die Before I Wake
Elliott Carter - Gra
Heinz Holliger - Rechant
Peter Eotvos - Derwischtanz
Gergely Vajda - Lightshadow - Trembling

Reto Bieri’s unaccompanied programme gets to the essence of each composer and actually feels the better fort he lack of busy counterpoint (e.g. in the case of Elliott Carter). And there is no risk of solo clarinet becoming insufficient; Bieri holds attention throughout with his beauty of tone and uncommon expressiveness with multiphonics, which can often feel gimmicky. A marvellous disc which takes clarinet playing to a new level. Highly recommended to explorer listeners who don’t seek just facile excitement. [ Peter Grahame Woolf, Musikal Pointers ]

CD ECM Records Shai Maestro: The Dream Thief

2018

Shai Maestro - pian
Jorge Roeder - contrabas
Ofri Nehemya - tobe

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.

CD ECM Records Vijay Iyer, Wadada Leo Smith: A Cosmic Rhythm With Each Stroke

2016

Vijay Iyer - pian, Fender Rhodes, electronice
Wadada Leo Smith - trompeta

A trumpet/piano duo is a tough call, but the two operate with a charismatic delicacy and subtle force. The centrepiece is a largely improvised seven-part suite dedicated to Indian visual artist Nasreen Mohamedi. Smith’s tone and phrasing often reflect mid-period Miles Davis, but he blends free jazz into those resources with a unique poetic focus. Long high squeals and tumbling unfold over Iyer’s humming electronics, a bright brass fanfare soars over a chordal rumble, and a lamenting muted-trumpet descent invokes ‘Sketches of Spain’. Iyer mostly functions as a discreet foil, but this intimate conversation swells from interesting to enthralling as it unfolds. [ John Fordham, The Guardian ]

CD ECM Records Hilliard Ensemble: Il Cor Tristo

2012

The Hilliard Ensemble :

David James - contratenor
Rogers Covey-Crump - tenor
Steven Harrold - tenor
Gordon Jones - bariton

Nothing sums up the bold apparoach to repertoire better than this CD which mixes Italian Renaissance madrigals with Roger Marsh’s 2008 vocal work ‘Il Cor Tristo’ – setting parts of Dante’s ‘Inferno’ to austere chanted chords from which single voices break out. Grim words; haunting music; masterly performance. [ Richard Morrsison, The Times ]

CD ECM Records Anna Gourari - Bach, Hindemith, Gubaidulina: Canto Oscuro

Mai 2011 - Compozitori: Bach, Paul Hindemith, Sofia Gubaidulina

Anna Gourari - pian

When she won the 1994 Düsseldorf Shumann Competition she was thought to show ‘an almost mystical quality’ while the critic Harold Schonberg found her playing ‘free but never eccentric’. Much of this programme is contemplative but she’s nonetheless a powerful player in the counterbalancing Chaconnes: the inevitable Bach/Busoni and a dissonant one by Sofia Gubaidulina (very compelling). [...] The piano recording has real presence. [ Christopher Breunig, Hi-Fi News ]

CD ECM Records Arvo Part: Litany

1996
The Hilliard Ensemble
David James - contratenor
Rogers Covey-Crump - tenor
John Potter - tenor
Gordon Jones - bass
Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir
Tallinn Chamber Orchestra
Tonu Kaljuste - dirijor
Lithuanian Chamber Orchestra
Saulius Sondeckis - dirijor

"Listening to Arvo Pärt's newest composition, Litany, is like walking alone in a vast, empty space. A deserted monastery, perhaps. History and stillness hang thick as incense in the air. Light from arched windows patterns the floor. Columns soar heavenward. These images are all in the imagination. But such is the power of Pärt's religious music that it inevitably sends listeners on an inward journey back in time." [ David Stabler, The Oregonia ]

CD ECM Records Arvo Part: Adam's Lament

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 Terje Rypdal: If Mountains Could Sing

1994 :
Terje Rypdal chitara electrica
Bjorn Kjellemyr - bas
Audun Kleive - tobe
Terje Tonnesen - vioara
Lars Anders Tomter - viola
Oystein Birkeland - violoncel
Christian Eggen - dirijor

"I start this review where I might end it, by marking If Mountains Could Sing as one of Terje Rypdal’s finest achievements. Marrying the Norwegian guitarist’s penchant for magnesium fire with his comparable passion for classical textures, this record gives us the clearest intersection of his split idiomatic personality since Descendre."

1982
David Darling - violoncel, violoncel electric
Collin Walcott - sitar, tabla, percutie
Steve Kuhn - pian
Jan Garbarek - saxofon sopran si tenor
Arild Andersen - contrabas
Oscar Castro-Neves - chitara

"As it stands, Cycles is a bubble of possibility that only expands with every listen. In its opening strains, we kneel atop a cliff of unraveling. Darling’s needlepoint brings light to fullest dark, breathing through Walcott’s tabla and Garbarek’s shawm-like expectorations. [ ecm reviews ]

CD ECM Records Gidon Kremer, Kremerata Baltica - Mieczyslaw Weinberg

2014

Gidon Kremer - vioara, dirijor
Daniil Grishin - viola
Giedre Dirvanauskaite - violoncel
Daniil Trifonov - pian
Kremerata Baltica

Mieczysław Weinberg:
- Sonate Nr. 3 Op. 126
- Trio Op. 48
- Sonatine Op. 46
- Concertino Op. 42
- Symphonie No. 10 Op. 98

The affinities between the music of Mieczyslaw Weinberg and his good friend Dmitri Shoastakovich are as obvious as the Beethoven/Brahms connection, which caused the latter to say ‘Any fool can see that’. Those affinites permeate the early works here, Weinberg’s sole String Trio, the sonatina for violin and piano, and the concertino for violin and strings, all written shortly after the second World War. The later pieces – the Symphony No 10 of 1968 and the Sonata No 3 for solo violin of 1979 – are of a different cut, more adventurous and often sonically harsher. The gripping solo sonata is a real discovery, and Gidon Kremer regards it as worth a 20-century place alongside Bartók’s towering solo sonata. He certainly handles the work with that level of conviction. [ Michael Dervan, Irish Times ]

CD ECM Records Golfam Kayham, Mona Matbou: Riahi

2016

Golfam Khayam - chitara
Mona Matbou Riahi - clarinet


Narrante is the highly attractive ECM debut album of Golfam Khayam and Mona Matbou Riahi, otherwise known as the Naqsh Duo. The guitarist and clarinetist, both born in Teheran, have pursued further musical adventures outside Iran while remaining fascinated and strongly influenced by their homeland’s rich and diverse traditions. In the process they have arrived at synthesis of their own, finding points of contact between aspects of Persian tradition and contemporary music. The forms, modes, drones and rhythms of Persian music as well its call for improvisation are redeployed, to new creative ends, in their fresh and vital work.

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.'

2016

Jakob Bro - chitara
Thomas Morgan - contrabas
Joey Baron - tobe


Danish guitarist Jakob Bro creates magical music, impossible to categorize or capture. The songs on ‘Streams’ are best described as jewels revolving in mid-air, reflecting and refracting light. […] The beauty of ‘Streams’ is in its unknowingness, its sense of wonder and possibility. [ Ken Micallef, Downbeat ]

"Hungarian nylon-string guitarist Ferenc Snetberger made his ECM debut playing live solo guitar on In Concert (2016). Here he shares the musical space with Swedish bassist Anders Jormin and U.S. drummer Joey Baron—a combination suggested by producer Manfred Eicher, and cemented by three concerts in Hungary before the recording session.

CD ACT Bugge Wesseltoft: Everybody Loves Angels

2017
Bugge Wesseltoft - pian

Bugge Wesseltoft and producer Siggi Loch have returned to the original concept of “Snowing” in “Everybody Loves Angels”. The title is a metaphor for the kind of weightless ease which the music conveys; and this time it's not just for winter...The success story started in 1997. Bugge Wesseltoft had just released the album “New Conception Of Jazz” on his own newly-founded label Jazzland. That album broke new ground...
