Arvo Part:
Fratres ( For Violin And Piano )
Cantus In Memory Of Benjamin Britten
Fratres ( For 12 Celli )
Tabula Rasa

More than often modern music is thought that it has to sound like a toolbox descending a staircase. Pärt is the total opposite; his music burns with intense and quiet passion. It almost forces the listener into introspection and contemplation. This work is one of the marvels of the modern age and is still as captivating as when it was first released. Just like the works of the old masters that echo for centuries, this masterpiece by Arvo Pärt will echo and arouse the deepest of emotions eons after it was first released."

CD ECM Records Arvo Part: Passio

In stoc

Martie 1988

The Hilliard Ensemble, Lynne Dawson, Michael George, Elizabeth Layton, Melinda Maxwell, Elisabeth Wilson, Catherine Duckett, Christopher Bowers-Broadbent, Western Wind Chamber Choir / dirijor - Paul Hillier

Arvo Part: Passio Domini Nostri Jesu Christi Secundum Joannem ( 1982 )


Part's long-form The Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ According to St. John dramatizes the apostle John's account of the arrest and crucifixion of Jesus. The form he adopts sounds as though it were centuries old, with its choral orchestration. But his choice of instruments, his choice of chords, his phrasing, and the basic construction of the piece itself are all based on 20th century ideas, most notably his own innovation, the "tintinnabuli" method. The overall sound is significantly bigger than the small ensemble performing it; this is an innovative work, despite the classic subject matter. The text is taken verbatim from the Vulgate.

CD ECM Records Jan Garbarek, Hilliard Ensemble: Officium Novum

In stoc

2009
Jan Garbarek - saxofoane
The Hilliard Ensemble :
David James - contratenor
Rogers Covey-Crump - tenor
Steven Harrold - tenor
Gordon Jones - bariton

In addition to several medieval sources, included are works by early 20th century Armenian priest, musicologist, and composer Komitas; Nikolai N. Kedrov, a Russian composer of the same era; mid-20th century Greek composer Giorgios Sefaris; Estonian Arvo Part; and several original pieces by Garbarek himself. Like the first album, this one is suffused with a sense of distant mystery and a profound, powerful melancholy that is given voice with intense feeling. The sound again is spacious and warmly resonant, with an earthy, enveloping ambience. This album will be a must-have for anyone who loved the first one, and it should appeal to any listener with an affinity for meditative Eastern European spirituality, especially when tied to contemporary expressivity and stylistic freedom.

CD ECM Records Heinz Holliger: Machaut-Transkriptionen

In stoc

Swiss composer Heinz Holliger’s Machaut-Transkriptionen is comprised of a spacious cycle of pieces written over a ten year period beginning in 2001.

An imaginative re-investigation of the work of the great 14th century French composer-poet Guillaume de Machaut, it is scored for four voices and three violas. Note-for-note transcriptions of Machaut give way to Holliger’s increasingly creative refractions of the music. As Holliger notes, his in-depth study of Machaut opened up new vistas for his compositional activity and his admiration for the source material is mirrored in the outstanding performances of the violists and singers.

The Machaut-Transkriptionen proves a perfect vehicle for the Hilliard Ensemble’s set skills as interpreters of both old and new music, and this recording, made in 2010 in Zürich, captures the vocal group at the heights of its powers.

In stoc

1987

Brass Ensemble Staatsorchester Stuttgart
The Hilliard Ensemble
Dennis Russell Davies - dirijor
Susan Bickley - alto
Lynne Dawson - soprana
David James - contratenor
Rogers Covey-Crump - tenor
Christopher Bowers-Broadbent - orga

Pärt's 1987 release, Arbos, shows the composer working within his medium, bringing forth a body of music sacred in sound and message and presenting new compositional techniques. Utilizing a limited palette of tones, arranged in repeating patterns, these works are often (understandably) categorized with the works of Glass, Reich, and Riley. The tonal palette is often borrowed from European medieval styles, and this, in conjunction with the liturgical subject matter, make these new compositions feel centuries old. His Pari Intervello, originally scored in 1978 for wind instruments, is here recorded for solo organ. One of his more famous pieces, Stabat Mater, is presented here -- an airy piece that floats just on the threshold of awareness. Scored for vocal trio and string trio, this is a simply beautiful piece -- very expressive and lilting. [ AllMusic ]

In stoc

Compozitor - Arvo Part / Interpreteaza: The Hilliard Ensemble ( dirijor Paul Hillier), Orchester der Beethovenhalle Bonn, Western Wind Chamber Choir (dirijor Dennis Russell Davies), Sarah Leonard, Christopher Bowers-Broadbent, Pierre Favre

"This recording shows a different side of Arvo Part's compositional work. The title composition has unusual instrumentation: winds and brass, choir and soloists, electric guitar, and bass guitar. The lyrics come slowly, one word per bar at a near pppp volume level.

The text comes from Psalm 51, David's "Have Mercy on Me" psalm, before bursting like an apocalyptic fire into the classic "Dies Irae," a tremendous assault of holy terror best listened to in the dark by the fireplace. "Festina Lente" is a shorter work for strings and harp -- short, brisk, and entertaining, developed from a single melody. [AllMusic]

1993
Jan Garbarek - saxofon tenor si sopran
The Hilliard Ensemble:
David James - contratenor
Rogers Covey-Crump - tenor
John Potter - tenor
Gordon Jones - bariton

Recorded in a heavily reverberant Austrian monastery, the voices sometimes develop in overwhelming waves, and Garbarek rides their crest, his soprano sax soaring in the monastery acoustic, or he underscores the voices almost unobtrusively, echoing the voices, finding ample room to move around the modal harmonies yet applying his sound sparingly.

Those with nervous metabolisms may become impatient with this undefinable music, but if you give it a chance, it will seduce you, too. [ AllMusic ]

"Officium is what Coltrane hears in heaven."

There’s probably never been a more fascinating viola recording. Most of the music has been written in the last six years, often by middle-aged composers with substantial personalities… One is Betty Olivero, an Israeli who wrote the disc’s title piece… It’s a wonderfully dreamy, collagelike piece, tough, with a clear trajectory in its brooding viola writing, odd but eloquent accordion writing, and tapes of voices singing in welters of Mideast microtones. There’s so much in it that any given listening is going to be a unique and personal dialogue with where you’re at that day. [ David Patrick Stearns, The Philadelphia Inquirer ]

Lucrari de : Bent Sørensen, PerMagnus Lindborg, Maja Solveig Kjelstrup Ratkje, Markus Lindberg, Asbjørn Schaathun

Looking on Darkness is the solo recording debut of accordionist Frode Haltli, a major talent from Norway, destined to make his mark on several genres. He was last heard on ECM in the company of Trygve Seim and friends, but his primary commitment is to the performance of contemporary composition and this album features Nordic new music - from Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland - written for the accordion. Four of the five pieces are premiere recordings, written especially for Halti. They add up to a fascinating landscape of new music from the north, music which casts its inspirational net wide. Features compositions by Bent Sørensen, Asbjørn Schaathun, Magnus Lindberg, PerMagnus Lindborg, and Maja Solveig Kjelstrup Ratkje. Halti is joined by the Vertavo String Quartet for Ratkje's gagaku variations.

CD ECM Records Trio Mediaeval: A Worchester Ladymass

2005

Oslo’s Trio Medaeval presents a reconstruction of a 13th century votive Mass to the Virgin Mary, based on surviving manuscripts from a Benedectine Abbey in the English Midlands. Inserted amid the medieval music are a Credo and Benedicamus Domino specially composed for this programme by Gavin Bryars: the old and the new intermingle in the work of this vocal ensemble. Anna Maria Friman: “The members of Trio Mediaeval feel that performing mediaeval music today gives us the freedom to let our imagination and ideas flow, as though we are creating contemporary music.”

CD ECM Records Arvo Part: In Principio

Estonian Philharmonic Chamber Choir
Tallinn Chamber Orchestra
Estonian National Symphony Orchestra
Tonu Kaljuste - dirijor

Pärt continues his sacred investigations with homegrown choir and orchestra
"His music fulfills a deep human need that has nothing to do with fashion," Steve Reich once said of his contemporary Arvo Pärt, Estonia's preeminent modern composer. Pärt’s earlier works were in a neo-classical mold; his later ones imbued minimalism with religious fervor. In Principio, which includes four new pieces and several revised older pieces, naturally falls in the latter camp. Pärt’s gaze penetrates the crease between earth and the heavens: Five compositions are settings of the book of John for chorus and orchestra; one is a requiem for late Estonian president Lennart Georg Meri, and one is for the victims of the 2004 Madrid train bombings. The “John” pieces are dominated by celestial voices and string-heavy musical accompaniment that moves fluently between ecstatic fanfare and vanishing solemnity. “Da Pacem Domine” is a standout—its voices flowing in undisturbed serenity—as is the sharply contrasting “La Sindone,” where trickling rivulets of strings periodically tumble into waterfall chords.

CD ECM Records Giya Kancheli: Diplipito

2004

Derek Lee Ragin - contratenor
Thomas Demenga - violoncel
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 ]

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 ]

Kim Kashkashian’s advocacy of the music of Tigran Mansurian led to last year’s critically-acclaimed “Hayren” album. Now comes a fuller portrait of Armenia’s foremost composer. This double album, made with Mansurian’s participation, includes premiere recordings of works of the last decade, in which Kashkashian is variously joined by Christoph Poppen and the Munich Chamber Orchestra, Jan Garbarek, and the Hilliard Ensemble, while Leonidas Kavakos is the soloist in the 1981 Concert for Violin and Orchestra. An extraordinary cast, doing justice to extraordinary music. “Monodia” is certain to be a much-discussed recording

CD ECM Records Eleni Karaindrou: Euripides - Medea

2011

This is music created for the Medea production put on by stage director Antonis Antypas, as performed at the Ancient Theatre of Epidaurus. The Medea enacted there is Giorgos Cheimonas' adaptation from the original Euripides version of the play. Musically it has a timeless, exotic quality. Eleni Karaindrou utilizes a 15-member chorus; Eleni herself effectively contributes a solo part. Plus there is an 8-member chamber group with strong Greek and Eastern Mediterranean associations. The ensemble consists of three clarinets, ney, a player of the Constantinople lute (sounding much like an oud) and lyra, then cello, the santour, and the bendir.With these means Ms. Karaindrou creates a music of great evocative beauty, with its ancient scales and traditional instruments providing sound color and spatial punctuation, the vocals from chorus and soloists extending the sound and all-in-all creating a through-composed modern ambient pomo sort of work that is very identifiably Karaindrou-esque. Even in the purely instrumental passages the reflective, haunting melodiousness of Karaindrou comes through. It sounds less like ‘authentic’ ancient Greek-Eastern Mediterranean music as the idea of that as filtered by an ‘authentic’ Eleni Karaindrou sensibility. And it is one of her very strongest works at that. The performances are excellent, the sound all you'd expect from ECM [ Grego Applegate, Gapplegate Music Review ]

For those who have never heard the utterly distinctive sound of Norway's all-female Trio Mediaeval, this 2014 release may make a good place to start. The group has developed and honed that sound over several albums in programs featuring chant in several varieties, medieval polyphony, Norwegian folk melodies mostly harmonized in a quasi-medieval style, and contemporary compositions in a neo-medieval idiom.

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'.'

Breathtaking and emotionally-fraught violin by Gidon Kremer dominates one of Georgian composer Kancheli's most moving compositions, dedicated to fallen comrade Luigi Nono.

This is a typically unusual ECM disc, and I would especially urge those with an angst for contemporary music to try it. The Franck is a rich but deeply rewarding filling to what might seem a ‘modern’ sandwich, but the outer works are special and memorable – at times jaw-droppingly beautiful, and always performed with infectious conviction by the musicians of Kremerata Baltica.
