CD ECM Records Tigran Hamasyan: Luis I Luso

2015

Tigran Hamasyan Piano, Prepared Piano
Yerevan State Choir
Harutyun Topikyan Conductor

Arranged by Hamasyan, the pieces date from the 5th to the 20th centuries and are sung by a 23-strong choir in an earthily passionate liturgical style. The role of the piano is vital: sometimes introducing a theme, sometimes improvising around it, Hamasyan uses the characteristic, Eastern-hued Armenian modes to summon up an ancient world. It’s very different to Jan Garbarek and the Hilliard Ensemble’s million-selling ‘Officium’, but if you liked that, you’ll love this. [ Phil Johnson, Independent On Sunday ]

CD ECM Records Anna Gourari - Prokofiev, Medtner, Chopin: Visions fugitives

2013

Sergey Prokofiev - Visions Fugitives Op. 22
Nikolay Medtner - Fairy Tale In F Minor Op. 26/3
Frederic Chopin - Sonata No. 3 In B Minor Op. 58

Anna Gourari - pian

Gourari triumphs on this program. She handles difficult technical parts with a speech-like continuity that flows the music wonderfully well. The Prokofiev has all the mystery and movement we could ask for. She understands his at times eccentric evocative moods and gives us a reading that glows with freshness. The Chopin has a weighted depth of feeling that neither under nor overplays the sentiments so nobly and fully, pianistically expressed. In every way Anna Gourari brings us her brilliant interpretive skills. The Prokofiev sings, the Chopin reverberates. A beautiful recital!

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 Hilliard Ensemble - Thomas Tallis: The Lamentations Of Jeremiah

1987

The Hilliard Ensemble :

David James - contratenor
John Potter - tenor
Rogers Covey-Crump - tenor
Paul Hillier - barition
Michael George - bas

The Hilliard Ensemble have Tallis's Lamentations in their blood, and they have a precise feeling for the place of every gesture in the broader form. The earlier sections are restrained, with the passion mounting only gradually towards the final paragraphs 20 minutes later. This is fluid, carefully modulated, limpid singing of considerable control and an astonishing clarity (particularly considering that they read the music as at modern concert pitch, resulting in some extremely low textures).
But the true novelty here—for there are several other fine recordings of the Lamentations—is the four-voice Mass, which is surely Tallis's least obviously impressive work. Much of it is in simple four-part chords with hardly any imitation or variety of texture; so it presents something of a challenge which the Hilliards accept with infectious enthusiasm.

CD ECM Records Konstantia Gourzi: Music For Piano And String Quartet

Iulie 2011

Lorenda Ramou, Heather Cottrell, Susanna Pietsch, Klaus-Peter Werani, Hanno Simons

Athens-born and Munich-based composer Konstantia Gourzi makes her ECM New Series label debut. “What historical voices commingle in the current idiom of a composer whose cultural roots lie in the birthplace of rhetoric, but who emigrated to take a musical apprenticeship in European constructivism?” asks Ingrid Allwardt in the liner notes. “What wordless airs, echoes of past ages, thread their way into the present day of her instrumental songs?” Music for piano and string quartet, supplies the answers. With the exception of the early „noch fürcht’ ich”, composed in 1993, all the music is of recent vintage. It includes a number of piano miniatures, pieces dedicated to Lachenmann, Kurtág, Raue, Abbado, Barenboim and Rexroth, two string quartets, and works for string quartet and piano. Pianist Lorenda Ramou and the Ensemble Coriolis deliver committed performances.

Arvo Part:
Fratres ( For Violin And Piano )
Cantus In Memory Of Benjamin Britten
Fratres ( For 12 Celli )
Tabula Rasa

More than often modern music is thought that it has to sound like a toolbox descending a staircase. Pärt is the total opposite; his music burns with intense and quiet passion. It almost forces the listener into introspection and contemplation. This work is one of the marvels of the modern age and is still as captivating as when it was first released. Just like the works of the old masters that echo for centuries, this masterpiece by Arvo Pärt will echo and arouse the deepest of emotions eons after it was first released."

CD ECM Records Arvo Part: Passio

Martie 1988

The Hilliard Ensemble, Lynne Dawson, Michael George, Elizabeth Layton, Melinda Maxwell, Elisabeth Wilson, Catherine Duckett, Christopher Bowers-Broadbent, Western Wind Chamber Choir / dirijor - Paul Hillier

Arvo Part: Passio Domini Nostri Jesu Christi Secundum Joannem ( 1982 )


Part's long-form The Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ According to St. John dramatizes the apostle John's account of the arrest and crucifixion of Jesus. The form he adopts sounds as though it were centuries old, with its choral orchestration. But his choice of instruments, his choice of chords, his phrasing, and the basic construction of the piece itself are all based on 20th century ideas, most notably his own innovation, the "tintinnabuli" method. The overall sound is significantly bigger than the small ensemble performing it; this is an innovative work, despite the classic subject matter. The text is taken verbatim from the Vulgate.

CD ECM Records Arvo Part: Symphony No. 4

2010
Los Angeles Philharmonic, dirijor: Esa-Pekka Salonen
Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir, dirijor: Tonu Kaljuste

Premiere recordings of Arvo Pärt’s music belong on ECM New Series. This recording of the 4th Symphony – Pärt’s first symphonic work in more than 30 years - documents also the premiere concert performance at L.A.’s Walt Disney Concert Hall.

Before Pärt started work on the composition, his thoughts had been circling around texts related to guardian angels. Then he received the commission from Los Angeles, a city whose very name means 'the angels'. His decision to make the Canon of the Guardian Angel the foundation of the new piece was a foregone conclusion.

The 4th Symphony is augmented on disc by a new montage of “fragments” of Kanon Pokajanen, a piece which Pärt feels is closely related to the symphony. “To my mind, the two works belong together and form a stylistic unity.'

"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: In Principio

Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir
Tallinn Chamber Orchestra
Estonian National Symphony Orchestra
Tonu Kaljuste - dirijor

Pärt continues his sacred investigations with homegrown choir and orchestra
"His music fulfills a deep human need that has nothing to do with fashion," Steve Reich once said of his contemporary Arvo Pärt, Estonia's preeminent modern composer. Pärt’s earlier works were in a neo-classical mold; his later ones imbued minimalism with religious fervor. In Principio, which includes four new pieces and several revised older pieces, naturally falls in the latter camp. Pärt’s gaze penetrates the crease between earth and the heavens: Five compositions are settings of the book of John for chorus and orchestra; one is a requiem for late Estonian president Lennart Georg Meri, and one is for the victims of the 2004 Madrid train bombings. The “John” pieces are dominated by celestial voices and string-heavy musical accompaniment that moves fluently between ecstatic fanfare and vanishing solemnity. “Da Pacem Domine” is a standout—its voices flowing in undisturbed serenity—as is the sharply contrasting “La Sindone,” where trickling rivulets of strings periodically tumble into waterfall chords.

2018
NFM Wroclaw Philharmonic, dirijor Tonu Kaljuste

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.

CD ECM Records Arvo Part: Lamentate

2005
Alexei Lubimov - pian
The Hilliard Ensemble :
Sarah Leonard - soprana
David James - contratenor
Rogers Covey-Crump - tenor
Stephen Harrold - tenor
Gordon Jones - baritone
SWR Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra
Andrey Boreyko - dirijor

'Lamentate' is a lament not for the dead but the living, struggling with the pain and hopelessness of the world. After a subterranean rumble, a sorrowful fanfare makes way for an ascent of the solo piano keyboard, and a shuddering orchestral climax that sets the tolling of alarm bells against a Mahlerian funeral march. After the work that precedes it (the Hilliard Ensemble's performance of 'Da pacem Domine', a gently rocking prayer for peace) the effect is doubly shattering. Impressive performances, a seductive ECM recording, and works that no-one with an interest in contemporary art and music can afford to miss. [BBC Music ]

CD ECM Records Arvo Part: Orient Occident

2002
Helena Olsson - soprana
Swedish Radio Choir
Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra
Tonu Kaljuste - dirijor

Some outstanding and thought-provoking works here, then, the quality of which outweigh the rather miserly playing time (especially at full price). The performances could hardly be better; Tönu Kaljuste is a long-time friend and interpreter of Pärt’s music (he was responsible for one of the composer’s best earlier releases on Virgin, Beatus vir). He coaxes playing of great warmth and intensity from his forces, and producer Manfred Eicher and his team serve them well with a recording of demonstration quality. Whether you’re interested in this composer’s particular style or not, this is well worth investigating. [MusicWeb International ]

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 ]

Brass Ensemble Staatsorchester Stuttgart
The Hilliard Ensemble
Dennis Russell Davies - dirijor
Susan Bickley - alto
Lynne Dawson - soprana
David James - contratenor
Rogers Covey-Crump - tenor
Christopher Bowers-Broadbent - orga

Pärt's 1987 release, Arbos, shows the composer working within his medium, bringing forth a body of music sacred in sound and message and presenting new compositional techniques. Utilizing a limited palette of tones, arranged in repeating patterns, these works are often (understandably) categorized with the works of Glass, Reich, and Riley. The tonal palette is often borrowed from European medieval styles, and this, in conjunction with the liturgical subject matter, make these new compositions feel centuries old. His Pari Intervello, originally scored in 1978 for wind instruments, is here recorded for solo organ. One of his more famous pieces, Stabat Mater, is presented here -- an airy piece that floats just on the threshold of awareness. Scored for vocal trio and string trio, this is a simply beautiful piece -- very expressive and lilting. [ AllMusic ]

CD ECM Records Arvo Part: Te Deum

1993
Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir
Tallinn Chamber Orchestra
Tonu Kaljuste - dirijor

The Te Deum is a statement on statement, a quantification of the utterance via the merest particle of its articulation. In reading so humbly into his sources, Pärt has rendered inspiration palatable through his own sense of hymnal adoration. One is hard-pressed to reconstruct the Te Deum for those who have yet to peer through its many windows. And though no review, however voluminous, does it a modicum of justice, I can only hope these words at least begin to express its potential effect. [ ecmreviews ]

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.

CD ECM Records Arvo Part: Miserere

Compozitor - Arvo Part / Interpreteaza: The Hilliard Ensemble ( dirijor Paul Hillier), Orchester der Beethovenhalle Bonn, Western Wind Chamber Choir (dirijor Dennis Russell Davies), Sarah Leonard, Christopher Bowers-Broadbent, Pierre Favre

"This recording shows a different side of Arvo Part's compositional work. The title composition has unusual instrumentation: winds and brass, choir and soloists, electric guitar, and bass guitar. The lyrics come slowly, one word per bar at a near pppp volume level.

The text comes from Psalm 51, David's "Have Mercy on Me" psalm, before bursting like an apocalyptic fire into the classic "Dies Irae," a tremendous assault of holy terror best listened to in the dark by the fireplace. "Festina Lente" is a shorter work for strings and harp -- short, brisk, and entertaining, developed from a single melody. [AllMusic]

CD ECM Records Hilliard Ensemble: Codex Specialnik

1995

The Hilliard Ensemble :

David James - contratenor
Rogers Covey-Crump - tenor
John Potter - tenor
Gordon Jones - bariton

While the members of the Hilliard Ensemble have nary a stumble in their entire ECM track record, with Codex Speciálník they have left one of their most lasting footprints. Recorded during a veritable golden age of the ensemble’s relationship with the label, the album extracts its material from the eponymous “special songbook,” found in a Prague monastery and dated to around 1500. Said manuscript encompasses a wide array of music in two to four parts from composers renowned and arcane, if not unknown, and proves to be a rich source of Renaissance polyphony. The more compelling pieces tend to be anonymous, such as the Exordium quadruplate that opens the Hilliards’ carefully handpicked program. [ ecmreviews ]
