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 Gidon Kremer - Mieczyslaw Weinberg: Chamber Symphonies & Piano Quintet

2017

Gidon Kremer - vioara, dirijor
Andrei Pushkarev - percutie
Kremerata Baltica

Mieczysław Weinberg:
- Chamber Symphony No. 3 Op. 151
- 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 ]

CD ECM Records Dino Saluzzi: Cite De La Musique

1997

Dino Saluzzi - Bandoneon
Marc Johnson - contrabas
José María Saluzzi - chitara acustica

For this trio date he joins his son, guitarist José Maria, and bassist Marc Johnson, ever the idiomatic chameleon, for a set of nine pieces. All bear the compositional stamp of Saluzzi, save for a heartfelt rendition of Earl Zindars’s “How My Heart Sings.” The album also contains two dedicatory pieces. First is the lilting “Gorrión,” for Jean-Luc Godard, which melts our hearts like an Anna Karina close-up and transplants us gently into the soil of “Coral para mi Pequeño y Lejano Pueblo.” Written for an unnamed childhood friend, it ends the album in an eddy of fond memories that practically jump from his keys. On the way to these Saluzzi leads us down a path dusted by careful footprints. [ ecm reviews ]

José María Saluzzi Classical Guitar, Requinto Guitar
Nicolás 'Colacho' Brizuela Classical Guitar
Félix 'Cuchara' Saluzzi Tenor Saxophone, Clarinet
Matías Saluzzi Electric Bass, Double Bass
Quintino Cinalli Drums, Percussion

While he’s a gifted classical and jazz musician, Saluzzi has spent the past three decades exploring a range of Agentinian genres, including zamba, carnavalito and chacarera. […] A song like ‘Churqui’ has the warmth and heart of high-plains music but is also multi-layered and allusive. Through it all, Dino Saluzzi’s bandoneón guides, suggests, riffs, queries and sermonizes. More accessible and even more wondrous than 2006’s excellent ‘Juan Condori’, also on ECM, ‘El Valle de la Infancia’ is a sublime album.

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.

Othmar Schoeck - Notturno (für Streichquartett und eine Singstimme), op. 47

If anything can broaden interest in the art of Swiss composer Othmar Schoeck, it is this wonderful recording of his song cycle for baritone and string quartet. … The work represents Schoeck’s dark night of the soul – an act of introspection that expresses existential doubts in music of the most intimate lyricism. The intricacy with which Schoeck intertwines the voices, vocal and instrumental, is one of his supreme achievements. … Gerhaher, sensitively supported by the Rosamunde Quartet, proves himself a more-than-worthy successor, summoning many of Fischer-Dieskau’s interpretative qualities.

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.

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.

This album of chamber music is the first in a series of ECM releases by Valentin Silvestrov, intended to spotlight the work of this important Ukrainian composer in the months and years to come. The pieces on the present recording - made with the participation of the composer - were written between 1974 and 2001. Inspired performances by Anja Lechner and Silke Avenhaus, Maacha Deubner and the Rosamunde Quartett bring out the highly individual lyricism and melodic feeling at the heart of Silvestrov's music. Silvestrov himself adds the 'final caesura', with his tender piano performance of his 'Hymn 2001'.

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 Valentin Silvestrov: Silent Songs

2004

Sergey Yakovenko - bariton
Ilya Scheps - pian

Valentin Silvestrov:
- Silent Songs: I. Five Songs
- Silent Songs: II. Eleven Songs
- Silent Songs: III. Three Songs
- Silent Songs: IV. Five Songs
- Four Songs after Osip Mandelstam

“Silent Songs” is a 24-song cycle dating from 1974-77, and is a grand gamble. For its entirety, almost two hours, its tempo is moderately slow, its texture open and spare, its dynamic hushed. … The actual music is a sort of distilled late-Romantic tonality. The piano accompaniment is made of delicately shaped arpeggios. The harmonies are studded with appoggiaturas (downbeat dissonances that resolve) and surprising (but satisfying) substitutions for where one would expect a progression to go. … Yakovenko is stunning in both his intensity and restraint, and Scheps is an ideally sensitive accompanist … A remarkable, rare flower of a piece.

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.

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.

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.

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 ]
