CD ECM Records Kim Kashkashian, Sivan Magen, Marina Piccinini: Tre Voci

2014

Kim Kashkashian viola
Sivan Magen harpa
Marina Piccinini flaut


Stellar collaboration of three musicians at the top of their game […] Their recording of Debussy’s dazzling, inventive sonata is full of sonic pleasures, as are the two new pieces, the pensive, poetic ‘And Then I Knew ’Twas Wind’ by Toru Takemitsu and Sofia Gubaidulina’s Eastern reverie ‘Garten von Freuden und Traurigkeiten’.

CD ECM Records Andras Schiff - Leos Janacek: A Recollection

2001

András Schiff - pian


The peerless András Schiff in his first recital recording of Janacek's piano music. The 'story-telling ' piano pieces chosen by Schiff can be closely related to Bartók's 'Mikrokosmos' and have a similarly timeless appeal. As writer Rob Cowan notes, 'No matter how many times you listen to these gems, the sum effect of emotional engagement, wonderment and love of life is as lasting as one's admiration for the music's miniaturist construction. They are truly 'the world in a grain of sand'.'

CD ECM Records Carolin Widmann - Robert Schumann: The Violin Sonatas

2008

Carolin Widmann - vioara
Denes Varjon - pian

Schumann’s violin sonatas, written at the end of his life… are fascinating pieces, unfairly neglected in the concert hall, and it is bracing to hear them played together so insightfully here. … The ardent disc, confirming the works as canonical, is … one to treasure. [ Paul Driver, Sunday Times ]

CD ECM Records Heinz Holliger - Robert Schumann / Heinz Holliger: Aschenmusik

2014

Heinz Holliger - oboi
Anita Leuzinger - violoncel
Anton Kernjak - pian

The ‚Three Romances‘, Op. 94, are beautifully done, and Holliger’s oboe features with Anita Leuzinger’s cello and Anton Kernjak’s piano in the ‚Six Canonic Studies‘, Op. 56. […] It’s difficult to over-praise this project, whose elements combine as an alchemical spell to conjure up Schumann’s phantom work, a tour de force of imaginative programming.[ Fabrice Fitch, Gramophone ]

CD ECM Records Galina Ustvolskaya

2013

Patricia Kopatchinskaja - vioara
Markus Hinterhauser - pian
Reto Bieri - clarinet

Ustvolskaya was trying to encourage listeners to hear her music on its own supremely self-assured terms. It’s a tough standard to meet, on a recording — though it’s one that any new album of Ustvolskaya works should attempt to create anyway. This one pulls off that task both in its moments of fireworks and in the sections of eerie quiet. For that, we can thank ECM’s all-star cast. Early in the 2014 season, rising violin star Patricia Kopatchinskaja performed two of the pieces on this album at a rapturously received late-night concert at Berlin’s Philharmonie.

2010

Hungarian Radio Childrens Choir, Stuttgarter Kammerorchester, ( dirijor Dennis Russell Davies )

Dennis Russell Davies has had a long-running and highly productive association with the Stuttgart Chamber Orchestra – documented on exceptional ECM recordings of repertoire from Mozart to Kancheli - and is currently the orchestra’s Conductor Laureate. Here he leads them through spirited performances of Bartók’s “Divertimento”, “Romanian Folk Dances” and “Seven Songs” (on which the orchestra is joined by the Hungarian Radio Children's Choir.)

CD ECM Records Valery Afanassiev - Franz Schubert: Moments Musicaux

2010

Valery Afanassiev - pian

Pianist Valery Afanassiev – renowned for his strikingly individual and deeply introspective interpretations of the music of Franz Schubert – has paired two often extrovert works by the composer: the set of six Moments Musicaux and the Sonata D. 850. Recorded in September 2010 at the Auditorio Radiotelevisione Svizzera, Lugano, this is ECM’s second Schubert recording by the Moscow-born pianist, having previously released a live recording of Afanassiev performing Schubert’s final Sonata D. 960 at the 1986 Lockenhaus Festival that has become a connoisseur’s favourite.

CD ECM Records Duo Gazzana: Five Pieces - Takemitsu / Hindemith / Janacek / Silvestrov

2011

Natascia Gazzana - vioara
Raffaella Gazzana - pian

Toru Takemitsu - Distance Du Fee (1951)
Paul Hindemith - Sonata In E (1935)
Leos Janacek - Sonata (1914, rev 1921)
Valentin Silvestrov - Five Pieces (2004)

These works – a gently-pulsing elegy, a serenade, an intermezzo, a barcarole, a ghostly nocturne - receive their international release here in a context which combines the familiar and the far-flung, as Duo Gazzana finds creative affinities between the music of four very different composers. “The programme as a whole is typical of the duo’s inquiring and sensitive approach to repertory”, writes Paul Griffiths in the liner notes. “What we hear here is a vital freshness”.

CD ECM Records Duo Gazzana: Poulenc / Walton / Dallapiccola / Schnittke / Silvestrov

2013

Natascia Gazzana - vioara
Raffaella Gazzana - pian

These works call often for considerable interpretive and technical excellence. The youthful dash of Duo Gazzana give us plenty of both in a program of unity within great diversity. What seems at first a potpourri of varying modern period masters and their works comes together to give us a sort of survey of the ways tradition has not always been overturned in modern times but sometimes also has aided and forwarded the search for new sounds within expressive and structural models that date back centuries. Duo Gazzana brings us performances of vivid musicality. One could not ask for much better than this. [ Grego Applegate Edwards, Gapplegate Classical-Modern Music Review ]

CD ECM Records Duo Gazzana - Ravel / Franck / Ligeti / Messiaen

2018

Natascia Gazzana - vioara
Raffaella Gazzana - pian

A sense of discovery is a key theme in the third ECM recital of sisters Natascia and Raffaella Gazzana. Alongside a landscape of French music for violin and piano, drawing on a multiplicity of inspirations, the album includes a premiere recording of György Ligeti’s Duo, dedicated to Kúrtag. Duo Gazzana plays César Franck’s epic A major Sonata of 1886, and Maurice Ravel’s Sonate posthume, written in 1897, when its author was just 22, and the album concludes with Olivier Messiaen’s Thème et variations of 1932, a work which in some aspects prefigures the Quatuor pour la fin du temps.

CD ECM Records Kiev Chamber Choir - Valentin Silvestrov: Sacred Songs

2007

Kiev Chamber Choir, dirijor Mykola Hobdych

The Ukrainian composer Valentin Silvestrov may have come late to choral music, but this disc - the latest in ECM’s series devoted to the composer - brings together his ‘a cappella’ pieces written in 2006 and 2007. Appropriately enough the magnificent Kiev Chamber Choir, who also are featured in ‘Sacred Works’ (ECM 2117), are recorded in the cathedral that forms part of St Michael’s Golden-Domed Monastery, Kiev.

2016

Danish String Quartet

CD ECM Records Cikada Quartet - Saariaho, Cage, Maderna: In Due Tempi

2005

The Cikada String Quartet

Henrik Hannisdal - vioara
Odd Hannisdal - vioara
Marek Konstantynowicz - viola
Morten Hannisdal - violoncel

Kaija Saariaho - Nymphea ( For String Quartet And Live Electronics )
John Cage - String Quartet In Four Parts
Bruno Maderna - Quartetto Per Due Archi In Due Tempi

These quartets illustrates three contrasting approaches to form and language. The earliest, John Cage’s String Quartet in Four Parts, is a sequence of spare, gestural movements that, typically, forces us to contemplate the nature of sound, silence and space. Bruno Maderna’s Quartetto per archi in due tempi, written for Berio, uses as its basis a serial technique that involves not just pitch but duration. It rejoices in refinement but also extremities – here lyrical, there brutal. Kaija Saariaho’s single-movement Nymphea for quartet and live electronics was written under the influence of the spectralists Gerard Grisey and Tristan Murail. It’s a work of ever varying textures, surfaces, colours. The Cikadas play everything superbly. [ Stephen Pettitt, Sunday Times ]

CD ECM Records Kim Kashkashian, Sarah Rothenberg, Steven Schick - Feldman / Satie / Cage: Rothko Chapel

2015

Kim Kashkashian - viola
Sarah Rothenberg - pian, Celeste
Steven Schick - percutie
Sonja Bruzauskas - mezzo-soprana
Lauren Snouffer - soprana
Houston Chamber Choir , dirijor Robert Simpson

Rothko Chapel addresses a network of musical relationships and inspirations. The album opens with Morton Feldman’s Rothko Chapel, named for the Houston, Texas multi-faith chapel built to house Mark Rothko’s site-specific paintings. Feldman considered that his music lay “between categories, between time and space, between painting and music”, and described the score as his “canvas”. Amongst his most important influences were abstract painters, his friend Rothko prominent amongst them. (Rothko, for his part, yearned to “raise painting to the level of music and poetry”.)

CD ECM Records Vijay Iyer Trio: Break Stuff

2014

Vijay Iyer - pian
Stephan Crump - contrabas
Marcus Gilmore - tobe

"Though Break Stuff is Vijay Iyer's third appearance on ECM in less than year, it is the debut offering from the longstanding trio on the label. The pianist and composer has been working with bassist Stephen Crump and drummer Marcus Gilmore for more than a decade. They've issued two previous recordings together. Iyer usually works conceptually, and Break Stuff is no exception. In the press release he states that "a break in music is still music: a span of time in which to act. [ AllMusic ]

CD ECM Records Vijay Iyer: Mutations

2013

Vijay Iyer - pian, electronice
Miranda Cuckson - vioara
Michi Wiancko - vioara
Kyle Armbrust - viola
Kivie Cahn-Lipman - violoncel

"Mutations is not only Vijay Iyer's debut album for ECM, but also the first recording he's issued since winning a MacArthur Foundation "genius" grant in the fall of 2013. As a recording, it is certainly among his most provocative. There are no traces of his Hindustani or Carnatic jazz explorations, his athletic post-bop or modal works, or even his explosive readings of modern pop. This is a showcase for Iyer the composer.

CD ECM Records Vijay Iyer Sextet: Far From Over

2017

Vijay Iyer Piano, Fender Rhodes
Stephan Crump Double Bass
Tyshawn Sorey Drums
Steve Lehman Alto Saxophone
Mark Shim Tenor Saxophone
Graham Haynes Cornet, Flugelhorn, Electronics

The 10-track, nearly hour-long album offers one of the bandleader’s strongest and most varied programs—one in which feverish ensemble writing hangs together with groove-oriented tracks and sparer experimental textures. […] The union of players and material inspires a new synthesis: the sound of Iyer consolidating strengths and discovering some new ones as he settles into the vibe created by his most potent band yet.
