CD ECM Records Danish String Quartet - Beethoven / Shostakovich / Bach: Prism I


Rune Tonsgaard Sorensen - vioara
Frederik Oland - vioara
Asbjorn Norgaard - viola
Fredrik Schoyen Sjolin - violoncel

For its third ECM release, the prize-winning Danish String Quartet inaugurates a series of five albums with the overarching title of Prism, in which the group will present one of Beethoven’s late string quartets in the context of a related fugue by J.S. Bach as well as a linked masterwork from the quartet literature. With Prism 1, it’s the first of Beethoven’s late quartets, op. 127 in E-flat Major, alongside Bach’s fugue in the same key (arranged by Mozart) and Dmitri Shostakovich’s final string quartet, the No. 15 in E-flat minor.

CD ECM Records Andras Schiff - Franz Schubert

Andras Schiff - Fortepiano

Ungarische Melodie in h-Moll D 817
Franz Schubert - Sonate in G-Dur D 894 (op.78)
Franz Schubert - Moments musicaux D 780 (op.94)
Allegretto in c-Moll D 915
Franz Schubert - Vier Impromptus D 935 (op.142)
Franz Schubert - Sonate in B-Dur D 960

Try the exquisite Alegretto in C minor, D915, once memorably recorded by Schnabel, for a vivid sample of the world of sound that the Brodmann opens up (disc 2, tr I); or the first movement of the B flat major Sonata, D960, for a picture of how it matches the ambition of Schubert’s writing on the broadest scale (disc 2, tr 6). […] I cannot think of anyone of his caliber who has mastered the fortepiano as well as the modern piano and shown such distinction on both. In Schubert he has a claim to be considered sovereign among today’s players, carrying forward the reading and interpretation of him into areas that others have not fully explored.
[ Stephen Plaistow, Gramophone, Editor’s Choice ]

CD ECM Records Andras Schiff - Bach: Goldberg Variations

Andras Schiff - Piano

Bach - Goldberg Variations BWV 988

Like Glenn Gould before him, András Schiff waited 20 years to revisit the Goldberg Variations. Unlike Gould, whose mannerisms grew more baroque than the work itself through the intervening decades, his second interpretation presents the Variations with as little interference as possible. Does this mean that “all” Schiff does is play the notes in front of him? No. The minute alterations of emphasis and articulation within each variation represent years of observation; the kind of study intrinsic to a proper exposition of the topology of Bach’s thematic revolution. … “Great” is not a word to be used casually when it comes to CDs, but no other term does justice. Lucidity, elegance and strength are all here and exquisitely balanced. The definitive Goldberg? As far as I’m concerned, yes. [ Ann Picard, Independent on Sunday ]

International Record Review, Outstanding
Preis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik, Bestenliste 4/2009

It is Schiff’s artistic individuality that makes these recordings unique and comparable to the greatest Beethoven cycles, offering a vision for the future through his research into the past. Schiff takes us with him on his journey that, however many times repeated, brings us to the music refreshed and renewed.
Malcolm Miller, International Piano, Autumn 2008

Schiff’s depth of musical understanding is priceless.

CD Naim Antonio Forcione: Tears Of Joy


Antonio Forcione - chitara :

"Tears of Joy is my ninth album. Recorded over a residency with hailed engineer Martin Levan at Red Kite Studios in the seclusion of deepest Carmarthenshire, I was joined by a host of world class musicians, including the Antonio Forcione Quartet. For me, Tears of Joy truly marks the affirmation of my vision as a composer and arranger.

An mixture of original material, the music on Tears Of Joy has been written, arranged and produced by myself. I have tried to evoke a wide range of emotions from deep contemplation to ecstatic celebration with emotional depth."

CD Naim Chris Anderson: From the Heart


Chris Anderson - pian

"From The Heart" is aptly titled. Chris plays the piano as though his life depends on it; every note is laced with vulnerability. His improvisation with chords is a startlingly beautiful combination of delicacy and deliberation and his selections, though standards, become mysteriously eclectic and varied. Chris sings on "In Love In Vain"; it is a touching and heartfelt rendition.

Chris Anderson is a highly infuential pianist, having worked with luminaries such as Sonny Rollins, Charlie Parker and Dinah Washington amongst others. He is credited with teaching Herbie Hancock, who to this day remains a huge fan of Chris. He has recorded an album with Charlie Haden, "None But The Lonely Heart" also available on The Naim Label.

Martie 1975

John Abercrombie - chitara electrica

"With this record, John Abercrombie both repaved and detoured from his staid path. He could hardly have been in finer company, and the combination seems to have fanned all sorts of flames within him. DeJohnette and Holland string an array of tightropes across which Abercrombie balances his way into previously uncharted territory. [ ecmreviews ]

Miroslav Vitous bas
John Surman saxofon sopran si bariton, bas clarinet
John Taylor pian
Jon Christensen tobe

editie Touchstones - format mini-vinil replica, coperti gatefold, cartonate

This quartet was the primary context for the Czech bassist Miroslav Vitous’s creativity in the late 70s and early 80s. “Like Mingus, Vitous is a real leader from the bass, and the music is all the stronger for it” – Gramophone. With three excellent writers in the line-up (John Surman and John Taylor as well as the leader) the quartet had an abundance of material to draw upon. Journey’s End includes “U Dunaje U Prešpurka” which Miroslav had played with the Junior Trio with Jan Hammer, as well as Surman’s Thomas Hardy-inspired ballad “Tess”, and Taylor’s “Windfall”. Collective improving capacities are to the fore on “Carry On, No. 1” which builds on the template of Jon Christensen’s drum patterns. Recorded 1982.

editie Touchstones - format mini-vinil replica, coperti gatefold, cartonate

“I’m extremely happy about this record”, Italian trumpeter Enrico Rava told All About Jazz. “I think it’s by far the best record I ever made. Everybody on the record sounds beautiful.” The disc bears out the judgement of the Jazzpar Prize jury who had elected Rava Musician of the Year a few months prior to this 2003 recording. “Rava’s bittersweet music does not fit neatly into any one genre. He can play fiery and lyrical lines and he can generate romantic atmospheres. He may shift between abstraction and structure, but he mostly plays the trumpet with a warm, mellow sound – smooth and intoxicating.“ Enrico is also an insightful bandleader, and Easy Living alerted a wider audience to the talents of pianist Stefano Bollani and trombonist Gianluca Petrella.

CD ECM Records Susanne Abbuehl: Compass


Susanne Abbuehl Vocals
Wolfert Brederode Piano
Christof May Clarinet, Bass Clarinet
Lucas Niggli Drums, Percussion
Michel Portal Clarinet

editie Touchstones - format mini-vinil replica, coperti gatefold, cartonate

Compass is a voyage at many levels: through music and text, with images evoking the freshness of sea air and the colours of wildflowers. A voyage through polar extreme of jazz – from Chick Corea to Sun Ra, through folk song in the slipstream of Luciano Berio, through poetry of James Joyce and William Carlos Williams. Also a journey through subtly undulating chamber music, improvised and otherwise. Through it all, Susanne Abbuehl’s cool, undemonstrative-yet-strangely-mesmeric voice is the unifying factor. She sings and speaks and whispers directly into the listener’s ear: an intimate, ‘interior’ voice, singing like thinking aloud. Recorded 2003 and 2004.

A guitarist’s guitarist, Bill Connors has always had the admiration of his peers. Steve Tibbetts recently praised Connors’s “left-hand vibrato, his sense of space, his liquid phrasing, the way he lingers on a note” – all qualities in evidence on 1977’s Of Mist and Melting. Jazz Journal: “The combination of Connors’s predominantly cool linearity and DeJohnette’s patented rolling and tumbling creates a very special blend of poetic contemplation and rhythmic vitality.”

CD ECM Records Chick Corea / Gary Burton: Crystal Silence

Chick Corea - pian
Gary Burton - vibrafon

The Corea/Burton duo was brought together by producer Manfred Eicher, and Crystal Silence (recorded in 1972) brought a new chamber music sensibility into jazz improvisation, distinguished by an effervescence of melody and countermelody, with synchronized cascades of sound in continually changing harmonic movement. “It becomes a little magical,” said Corea. Stereo: “Crystal Silence is an album of extraordinary musicianship and rare beauty. Rarely have two musicians been so perfectly matched and rarely do we hear an album of such consistent excellence and originality. “

CD ECM Records Bill Frisell / Thomas Morgan: Epistrophy

2019 -
Bill Frisell - chitara electrica
Thomas Moran - contrabas

Like their acclaimed ECM release Small Town of 2017 – which The Guardian called “wistful and mesmerizing… tonally ingenious and haunting” – Epistrophy by guitarist Bill Frisell and bassist Thomas Morgan was recorded at New York City’s Village Vanguard. The new album once again captures the rare empathy these two players achieve together in this intimate environment. There are further poetic takes on pieces from the duo’s Americana songbook (“All in Fun,” “Red River Valley,” “Save the Last Dance for Me”), as well as another intense version of a composition by Paul Motian (“Mumbo Jumbo”), an artist whom both the guitarist and bassist knew well. Frisell and Morgan communicate the essence of Billy Strayhorn’s “Lush Life” and the Frank Sinatra hit “In the Wee Small Hours of the Morning,” so much so that the famous words seem to hang in the air even without a singer. At the center of the album is a pair of pieces by Thelonious Monk: the funky, angular “Epistrophy” and the ruminative ballad “Pannonica.” And as with “Goldfinger” on Small Town, Frisell and Morgan offer a glowing duo interpretation of a melody-rich John Barry title tune from a James Bond film – “You Only Live Twice.”
