CD ECM Records Rosamunde Quartett - Joseph Haydn: The Seven Words

2001

Rosamunde Quartett :
Andreas Reiner - vioara
Simon Fordham - vioara
Helmut Nicolai - viola
Anja Lechner - violoncel

Joseph Haydn - The Seven Last Words of our Saviour on the Cross op.51, Hob.III.50-56

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. [ Michael Dervant, Irish Times ]

Thomas Larcher has a way of convincing you, like Morton Feldman, that every note is in its right place and should be nowhere else. A delicate touch and taut use of dramatic contrast flicker across his compositions, sending out shards of notes and icy silences. [ Andi Spicer, Gramophone ]

CD ECM Records Valentin Silvestrov: Symphony No. 6

2007

SWR Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra, dirijor Andrey Boreyko

A defining orchestral work by Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov, one of the most individual voices from the former Soviet Union. His sixth symphony, written in 1994/95, a five-part work stretching over 55 minutes, offers an impressive synthesis of Silvestrov’s personal style which he himself has called “Metamusik”: music beyond music, sounds, often verging on silence, eavesdropping on long-lost reverberations.

CD ECM Records Valentin Silvestrov: Bagatellen Und Serenaden

2007

Valentin Silvestrov - pian
Alexei Lubimov - pian
Münchener Kammerorchester, Christoph Poppen


Documentation of orchestral music by Valentin Silvestrov in Munich gained an unexpected extra dimension with the spontaneous decision to record the Ukrainian composer playing the piano before and after the ‘official’ session. The results, captured in the early morning and late afternoon, are fascinating, offering an intimate glimpse into Silvestrov’s reflective musical language. The first half of this disc features Silvestrov alone. In the second half, Christoph Poppen directs the Munich Chamber Orchestra and Alexei Lubimov again reveals his deep affinity for Silvestrov’s oeuvre. In all, a true ‘composer portrait’, in time for Valentin Silvestrov’s 70th birthday.

CD ECM Records Valentin Silvestrov: Hieroglyphen Der Nacht

2017

Anja Lechner - violoncel, Tamtam
Agnès Vesterman - violoncel

Released in time for the great Ukrainian composer’s 80th birthday on September 30, Hieroglyphen der Nacht features Valentin Silvestrov’s music for solo violoncello and for two cellos. German cellist Anja Lechner has had a long association with Silvestrov, first documented on the Grammy-nominated leggiero, pesante in 2001. Here she plays, alone, Augenblicke der Stille und Traurigkeit (of which she is the dedicatee), Lacrimosa, Walzer der Alpengöckchen, and Elegie (which calls for her to play both cello and tamtams). Lechner is joined by French cellist Agnès Vestermann, a frequent duo partner, to play Drei Stücke (dedicated to both musicians), 8.VI. 1810…zum Geburtstag R.A. Schumann, Zwei Serenaden, and 25.X.1893…zum Andenken an P.I. Tschaikowskij. As so often with Silvestrov, the compositions often take the form of metaphorical conversations with composers of the past and the present. Tchaikovsky and Schumann are amongst the composers referenced here, while Lacrimosa is a reaction to music of his friend Tigran Mansurian. “My own music is a response to and an echo of what already exists,” says Silvestrov, viewing his oeuvre as a series of “codas” to music history.

CD ECM Records Valentin Silvestrov: Metamusik / Postludium

2003

Alexei Lubimov - pian
Radio Symphonieorchester Wien, dirijor Dennis Russell Davies

Valentin Silvestrov:
- Metamusik - Symphony for piano and orchestra
- Postludium - Symphonic poem for piano and orchestra
Any attempt to describe the music of Valentin Silvestrov in a few words is doomed to fail, not least because of the incredible tonal and expressive variety that the 66-year-old Ukrainian composer brings to his work. This exquisitely performed and recorded disc offers two symphonic compositions in which solo piano stars. Metamusik, completed in 1992, ranges from overt Modernism to Jarrett-esque fantasy by way of Mahler, while the earlier Postludium contains a mind-blowing compression of ideas.

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.

CD ECM Records Alexei Lubimov - Stravinsky, Shostakovich, Prokofiev, Skriabin: Messe Noire

2005

Alexei Lubimov - pian

Igor Stravinsky: Serenade in A for piano
Dimitri Shostakovich: Sonata No. 2 op. 61 for piano
Sergey Prokofiev: Sonata No. 7 op. 83 for piano
Alexander Scriabin: Sonata No. 9 op. 68 for piano

Alexei Lubimov certainly has a fine pianistic pedigree. Born in Moscow in 1944, he was one of the last students of Heinrich Neuhaus, whose previous pupils included both Emil Gilels and Sviatoslav Richter. Unlike those greats, however, the core of Lubimov’s repertory has always been the 20th century. … On this disc, the focus is Russian music from the first half of the 20th-century… Lubimov’s relaxed, transparent performance of Shostakovich’s Second Sonata and tightly coiled one of Prokofiev’s Seventh are both hugely impressive, as is his surprisingly emollient account of Scriabin’s “Black Mass” sonata.

CD ECM Records Alexei Lubimov, Natalia Pschenitschnikova - John Cage: As It Is

2012

Alexei Lubimov - pian, pian preparat
Natalia Pschenitschnikova - voce

A fresh approach to one of contemporary composition’s most iconoclastic and inventive figures, issued on the occasion of John Cage’s 100th birthday. Early Cage is the subject here, strikingly original songs and piano pieces from the 1930s and 1940s. Songs in which Cage sets words by writers whose vision was as independent as his own – James Joyce, Gertrude Stein, E. E. Cummings. As Paul Griffiths writes, “The music exists in singing that has a raw, living edge, and it exists in piano tone that can be utterly simple and utterly remarkable. There is also a third presence that of the producer, bringing forward the extraordinary resonances that come from Lubimov’s piano, with preparation or without.” Lubimov championed Cage’s work in Russia and later had a close working relationship with the composer. He grasps both the playfulness of the music and its message of freedom. Recorded December 2011 in Zürich.

CD ECM Records Alexei Lubimov - Claude Debussy: Preludes

2012

Alexei Lubimov - pian
Alexei Zuev - pian

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.

CD ECM Records Misha Alperin: Her First Dance

2008

Misha Alperin - pian
Arkady Shilkloper - french horn, flugelhorn
Anja Lechner - violoncel

The keyboard virtuosity is awesome: check the buzzing-bee agility over slow countermelodies on Vayan, or the alternately coquettish and frenzied Jump. But the album’s dominant quality is the power of its compositions, which are all Alperin’s except for Shilkloper’s and Lechner’s dialogue on Russian Song. The lovely title track has a gentle child’s-dance piano part, and Tiflis displays a horn sound you could warm your hands on. [ John Fordham, The Guardian ]

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.'

2006

Paul Motian - tobe
Chris Cheek - saxofon
Tony Malaby - saxofon tenor
Steve Cardenas - chitara
Ben Monder - chitara
Jakob Bro - chitara
Jerome Harris - bas

Listening to Paul Motian’s music can bring to mind architect Mies van der Rohe’s celebrated adage that his work aimed for an effect of „almost nothing“. In the case of both Mies and Motian, their magisterial art might belie their intent, but fashioning much from less has continued to be as essential a modus operandi for the New York jazz drummer as it was for the German visionary. … Motian’s genius lies in maintaining an understated, lingering tension, thus dissolving any vestiges of New Age moistness. By keeping the bass and guitar parts harmonically indirect, and by positioning substantive, if concise, improvisations from saxophonists Tony Malaby and Chris Cheek, Motian – his now-murmuring, now-biting, always unpredictable drumming commenting on it all from beneath – ensures edginess.

CD ECM Records Jakob Bro: Returnings

2018

Jakob Bro - chitara
Palle Mikkelborg - trompeta, flugelhorn
Thomas Morgan - contrabas
Jon Christensen - tobe


“Danish guitarist Jakob Bro creates magical music, impossible to categorize”, wrote Downbeat recently. On Returnings the magic is intensified as Bro and musical soul-mate Thomas Morgan reconnect with two living legends of European jazz, trumpeter Palle Mikkelborg and drummer Jon Christensen. It’s a wonderful combination: Bro’s watercolour guitar sounds, Mikelborg’s soft Milesian flugelhorn, Morgan’s impeccable choice of notes, and Christensen’s free-floating drumming . These components add up to one of the prettiest and subtlest jazz albums of recent times. Returnings was recorded in July 2016 at Oslo’s Rainbow Studio and produced by Manfred Eicher.

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 ]

CD ECM Records Ralph Towner / John Abercrombie: Five Years Later

1981

Ralph Towner - chitara clasica, double-six
John Abercrombie - chitara acustica, , electrica, mandolina electrica

John Abercrombie is unique among guitarists in that whenever he becomes enraptured his sound becomes neither louder nor more pronounced but becomes somehow mysterious, liberated. Ralph Towner, on the other hand, revels in the crackling ruptures that so characterize his playing. Yet these roles seem reversed in this follow-up to the duo’s Sargasso Sea. A far more fragile carnation than its predecessor, it seems to forego the usual bag of tricks in favor of something more, as the album’s title would imply, reflective. This is especially apparent in the three improvisations with which the set list is dotted, and nowhere more so than in “Late Night Passenger,” where Abercrombie’s laddered filaments provide stunning berth for the other’s muted, jangling starlight.

CD ECM Records John Abercrombie / Ralph Towner: Sargasso Sea

1976

John Abercrombie - chitara acustica si electrica
Ralph Towner - chitara clasica, double-six, pian

Given the contrasting but strikingly compatible talents of John Abercrombie and Ralph Towner, this album was bound to happen sooner or later. The aptly titled “Fable” best describes what these two musicians achieve together, for theirs is a tale that sounds as if it were written long ago, coalescing out of life’s improvisations into a memorable narrative. Its pairing of Towner’s 12-string with Abercrombie’s electric represents the duo in its most melodically satisfying comfort zone. We get more of the same in the title track, an uncertain travail with hints of soliloquies caressing our ears from either side, and in the relatively explosive moments of “Elbow Room.” [ ecmreviews ]

John Abercrombie’s revised quartet provides Marc Copland with his first appearance on ECM. Yet guitarist and pianist are old allies, with an association stretching back forty years. In the early 1970s both were members of Chico Hamilton’s quartet, and at the dawn of fusion both played with pioneering jazz-rock band Dreams. Since the late 1990s they’ve revived their partnership in diverse context and have toured in formations ranging from piano-guitar duo to trio with Kenny Wheeler to the cooperative group Contact with Dave Liebman and Billy Hart.
