CD ECM Records Kim Kashkashian - Giya Kancheli, Alfred Schnittke

1992

Kim Kashkashian - viola
Orchester der Beethovenhalle Bonn
Rundfunk Symphonie-Orchester Saarbrücken, dirijeaza Dennis Russell Davies

This is a profoundly emotional album, by turns confrontational and mournfully resplendent. Kashkashian brings her usual heartrending strength to even the subtlest gestures and is never afraid to betray the fragility of her pitch. The orchestras, under the direction of Dennis Russell Davies, are forces to be reckoned with that scintillate in a slightly distanced mix. A benchmark recording in all respects. [ ecm reviews ]

CD ECM Records Kim Kashkashian, Robert Levin - Shostakovich, Chihara, Bouchard

1991

Kim Kashkashian - viola
Robyn Schulkowsky - percutie
Robert Levin - pian

Linda Bouchard: Pourtinade
Paul Chihara: Redwood
Dimitri Shostakovich: Sonata For Violion And Piano, Op. 147

Kim Kashkashian’s third disc for ECM is a curiously mixed bag. Although the liner notes give some delightful anecdotes and insider’s information, I am torn over how much said information enriches my experience of the whole. For example, Kashkashian points to the percussiveness of Shotakovich’s piano writing in his Sonata for Viola and Piano op. 147 as justification for the two companion pieces scored for “actual” percussion and viola. To be sure, this is a fascinating connection, though one that perhaps only the performers can intuit with such immediacy. Either way, the knowledge does guide my listening in new directions and pushes me to burrow into the music wholeheartedly. [ ecm reviews ]

CD ECM Records Kim Kashkashian, Robert Levin - Brahms: Sonaten Fur Viola Und Klavier

1997

Kim Kashkashian - viola
Robert Levin - pian

Johannes Brahms :
Sonate Fur Viola Und Klavier Es-Dur, Op. 120/2
Sonate Fur Viola Und Klavier F-Moll, Op. 120/1

'Brahms' third-to-last works, these sonatas are astonishing pieces looking back to the classical-romantic vocabulary he exploited and refined so fully while prophesying the structural and sonic freedom of 20th century modernism. These extraordinarily effortless and seamless works teem with emotion that is voluptuously abundant yet subsumed to the demands of a melodic structure that itself partakes of a sublime futurity. Listen, then listen again to grasp that one movement is a waltz, another a theme and variations, a third based on a country dance. Kashkashian and Levin perform with ravishing and egoless attention; they and their instruments seem to become the music.' [ Fredric Koepel, The Commercial Appeal ]

Vasiko Tevdorashvili - voce
Stuttgarter Kammerorchester, dirijeaza Dennis Russell Davies

Giya Kancheli:
- Midday Prayers
- Caris Mere
- Night Prayers

Kronos Quartet fans will recognize the final piece, Night Prayers, from their album of the same name. This extended version (for saxophone and string orchestra) begins with very deep voices, resounding from the liminal realm that is tape, accentuated by a knotty fringe of strings. As saxophonist Jan Garbarek pierces the gloom with his light, the piece flaps its thematic shutters like a quiet storm. Generally a very meditative journey, though not without its moments of rapture, Night Prayers is a captivating highpoint of Kancheli’s spiral of sound. Jan Garbarek gives due respect to the music at hand, and makes the most of a brief improvisational window in an otherwise precisely notated architecture. [ ecm reviews ]

CD ECM Records Meredith Monk: On Behalf Of Nature

2016

Meredith Monk Ensemble
Meredith Monk - voce

For five decades, vocalist-composer Meredith Monk has explored what she calls “primordial utterance,” or non-verbal vocal sound that lay beneath and beyond language, expressing “that for which we have no words.” This exploration has led her to create music that The New Yorker describes as simultaneously “visceral and ethereal, raw and rapt,” an art that “sings, dances and meditates on timeless forces.” With her latest, multivalent ECM New Series album, Monk aimed to address ecology and climate change, she says: “Believing that music speaks more directly than words, I worked to make a piece with a fluid, perceptual field that could expand awareness of what we are in danger of losing. On Behalf of Nature is a meditation on our intimate connection to nature, its inner structures, the fragility of its ecology and our interdependence.”

2011

Meredith Monk Ensemble

Meredith Monk - voce, Shruti Box

Voices and instruments are paired and balanced against each other to an extent rare in her music. Inspirations for the work included the Song of Ascents, a group of psalms said to have been sung during pilgrimages, and a timely invitation to perform at an 8-story tower designed by visual artist Ann Hamilton. “Songs of Ascension” finds Monk playing with the musical, sonic, metaphysical and literal connotations of upward movement. “If Monk is seeking a place in the classical firmament, classical music has much to learn from her.” - [ Alex Ross, The New Yorker ]

Robert Een - voce
Julius Eastman - voce

“The voice itself is a very eloquent language,” Monk has said. In her compositions, the voice has been restored to its role as a kind of ancestral, perhaps pre-historic human utterance, beyond language, a sound capable of forming multiple timbres and textures: yelping, keening, clucking, moaning, ululating. Through her exploration of the voice’s potential—known as “extended voice techniques”—Monk has produced music as rigorous as a medieval motet and as stirring and unfamiliar as the call of a wild animal from another planet.

Timothy Sawyer - voce
Johanna Arnold - voce
Joan Barber - voce

The markedly instrumental approach to the human voice embodied by this ensemble lends itself beautifully to the subject matter at hand. In choosing to eschew words entirely, Monk peers more deeply into the oracular interior of her music. Relying on nascent phonemes such as “na” and “la” in lieu of recognizable vocabularies, she complicates the linearity of her effected nostalgia. Book of Days is all the more haunting for reducing that nostalgia to a liquid state and scooping up as much of it as possible before it seeps out of sight through those very cracks where her music is born.

The appearance of words in Meredith Monk’s work can be rather jolting, as it is so easy for one to get used to the lack of semantic footholds. Like few other vocalists (Elizabeth Fraser comes to mind), Monk grinds the surface of what is being conveyed to such a fine patina that quantifiable meaning is often no longer necessary. Her vocal ramblings are mimetic, purposeful. Monk ably switches between registers and modes with lightning precision, creating a veritable conversation in and through a single body, gazing in multiple directions in the same breath.

Do You Be is a Meredith Monk hodgepodge culled from an assortment of operas and theater pieces. As such, it contains more in the way of quantifiable semantics. [ ecm reviews ]

CD ECM Records Meredith Monk: Piano Songs

2012

Meredith Monk
Bruce Brubaker - pian
Ursula Oppens - pian

Celebrating Meredith Monk as composer, these Piano Songs give us a world at once playful and earnest. Written or derived from work composed between 1971 and 2006, the pieces inhabit Monk’s unique universe, as played by two of new music’s most distinguished interpreters, pianists Ursula Oppens and Bruce Brubaker.

These pieces are ‘songs’ because they have strong roots in Monk’s pieces for voice, and because they are direct, specific, and imagistic. Meredith Monk on composing for two pianos: “I delved into different relationships and possibilities between them; material passed back and forth, dialogues, interlocking phrases, shifts of figure and ground. In some pieces, I emphasized the individuality of each piano, writing for one player as the ‘singer’, the other as the ‘accompaniment’; in other pieces I wanted the two pianos to make one large sound.

Giya Kancheli : Amao Omi ( For Mixed Choir And Saxophone Quartet )
- Little Imber ( For Small Ensemble, Voice, Children's Choir And Men's Choir )

Two choral works by the great Georgian composer Giya Kancheli. “Little Imber” is a “site-specific” work, profoundly melancholic yet with a hint or irony, directly inspired by the English village of the same name, a ghost-town since it was evacuated and turned over to the US army for military manoeuvres in 1943. The piece is coupled here with “Amao Omi” (“senseless war”) whose phonetic text adds up to moving sound tapestry, underpinned by the subtle and supple playing of the Raschèr Saxophone Quartet.

2004

Derek Lee Ragin - contratenor

Stuttgarter Kammerorchester , dirijor Dennis Russell Davies

Giya Kancheli:
- Diplipito ( Fur Violoncello, Countertenor Und Orchester )
- Valse Boston ( Fur Klavier Und Streichorchester )

“Diplipito”, pitting countertenor against cello in duets of aching elegy, seems to me one of Kancheli’s most ravishing creations. In “Valse Boston” for piano and strings an ineluctably slow ¾ time merely hints at long-lost dance origins amid images of lament and frustration: the ballrooms of Kanchelia are chill, empty places, probably with glass and rubble on the floor. With Dennis Russell Davies (conductor and dedicatee) at the piano, there are ghosts in “Valse Boston” of Shostakovich’s First Piano Concerto and, in both pieces, of Schubert, whose example has encouraged Kancheli’s recent works towards more direct melodic content. The performances reflect utter dedication from all concerned. [ Calum MacDonald, BBC Music Magazine ]

Settings of Psalm 23 and poems by Paul Celan and Hans Sahl for Soprano and mixed chamber ensemble. 'From strife-torn Georgia comes a man who may well be the mostimportant Soviet composer since Shostakovich: Giya Kancheli, whose olorousyetspiritually radiant music gives eloquent voice to the ongoing tragedy ofhis native Georgia. Says Kancheli, a devout Orthodox Christian, 'When a person goes into achurch, synagogue or mosque where there's not service going on, there's aspecial kind of silence. I want to turn that silence into music.' InKancheli's hands the sounds of silence are hauntingly eloquent.' --[ Michael Walsh, Time Magazine ]

Sofia Gubaidulina :
- The Lyre Of Orpheus
- The Canticle Of The Sun

Featuring unorthodox showcases for violin and cello, this album is testament to the sensitive individualism of Sofia Gubaidulina. Performed by Gidon Kremer´s Kremerata Baltica, 'The Lyre of Orpheus' proceeds via a series of discrete violin flourishes and glissandi, until coaxed into the open under cover of the ensemble. Its inclusion of sleighbells is one example of Gubaidulina´s characteristic use of unusual percussion, which reaches further extremes in her setting of St Francis´s 'Canticle of the Sun' when cellist Nicolas Altstaedt, having detuned his instrument to its lowest possible note, eventually abandons it to bow first a drum, then a flexatone device. Strange, but beautiful. [ Andy Gill, The Independent ]

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 ]

- 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 ]

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 ]
