Tigran Mansurians Requiem erinnert an die Opfer des Völkermordes, der von 1915 bis 1917 im damaligen Osmanischen Reich an den Armeniern verübt wurde. In zutiefst bewegender Weise führt Mansurian die musikalische Tradition seines Landes, ihre Klangfarben und Stimmungen, mit dem lateinischen Bibeltext zusammen und erfüllt seine Komposition mit dem »leuchtenden Glanz der armenischen modalen Musik«, wie Paul Griffiths es in seinem Essay formuliert. Für Mansurian, der als bedeutendster Komponist Armeniens gilt und in dessen Musik, so die Los Angeles Times, »ein tiefer kultureller Schmerz besänftigt wird durch wundersam stille, herzzerreißende Schönheit«, bedeutet das Requiem einen Meilenstein. Das Requiem entstand im Auftrag des Münchener Kammerorchesters und des RIAS Kammerchors und wurde im Januar 2016 in der Jesus-Christus-Kirche in Berlin-Dahlem mit Manfred Eicher als Produzent aufgenommen..

JD McPherson presents what he calls "A truly romantic garage rock record". Undivided Heart & Soul produced by Dan Molad (Lucius) & McPherson, and developed largely in the studio (that studio being the historic RCA Studio B in Nashville), carries a sense of immediacy and irreverence. "In writing this record, I threw several handfuls of caution to the wind. Lyrically, I was allowing myself to be exposed in a way I never have before. Concurrently, maybe as some sort of a self defense mechanism, the guitars got fuzzier and louder. The first day at RCA was like being in church… by the second day, it was a high school band's rehearsal space."

It was an eminently sensible decision to couple Zimerman's previously separate Chopin concertos on a single CD. The Ax/Ormandy/RCA disc is the only rival as a coupling, so let me say at once that in different moods I would be equally happy with either.

KOMITAS was one of the first Armenian musicians to undergo classical Western musical training, in Berlin, in addition to music education in his own country. He published both folksong collections and writings on Armenian church melodies, and his work laid the foundations for the development of a clearly defined national musical style. The Seven Folk Dances evoke the specific timbres of Armenian instruments, the Seven Songs for Piano are fleeting and lyrical while the Twelve Children’s Pieces based on folk-themes are beautifully crisp. Msho-Shoror is one of the most ancient of all Armenian dances.

The music on this recital was specifically written or arranged for duo violinists Angela and Jennifer Chun. It highlights the personal and professional connections between Philip Glass and Nico Muhly, a longtime colleague and admirer of Glass's work. Glass's miniaturist works, Mad Rush and In the Summer House, create a maximum effect when paired with Muhly's minimalist Four Studies and Honest Music.

While it is not at all unusual for a composer to return to a work and make revisions, Sergei Prokofiev’s Fourth Symphony is a unique case. The piece was composed and then revised to the point that the composer saw them as two separate works. The first version, which was composed in 1929, was met with apathetic response by audiences. The 1947 revision completely reworked the material and created a much more ambitious score.

Henri Dutilleux's work has been gaining attention through a number of significant recent recordings. Esa-Pekka Salonen recorded his Correspondances with the Orchestre Philharmonique de Radio France, and Ludovic Morlot has recorded both his symphonies, as well as other works, as the new conductor of the Seattle Symphony. This opportunity to experience and appraise his work casts him as among the most significant French composers of the late twentieth century.

Beethoven’s Fifth, described by one writer as "the most powerful work of musical rhetoric in orchestral literature," is surely the best-known symphony ever written. But how well do you really know this masterpiece? There are so many novel, forward-looking elements in it that it took years for some people to accept it as anything but unintelligible modern music.

Shostakovich's Second and Eleventh Symphonies are both inspired by Russian revolutions. The Eleventh Symphony, "The Year 1905", marks the bloody revolution of its namesake year. It is an astonishingly atmospheric symphony, of cinematic breadth, especially the second movement which depicts the Bloody Sunday massacre in St Petersburg.

Ludmila Berlinskaya has an impeccable pedigree. Daughter of Valentin Berlinsky, leader of the Borodin Quartet, she grew up in the company of some of the greatest Russian musicians of modern times, such as Richter (whose page-turner she was), Oistrakh, and Rostropovich. A fine chamber musician and an impressive soloist, she offers four major works for the piano by a quartet of great composers. Medtner’s sonata, which gives the album its title, is beautifully judged, while she invests the Schumann with real poetry, and charms with Ravel-playing of great flair.

Unlike many of his radical new music colleagues, Bruno Maderna (1920-1973) had a great affection for older music, especially that of the Italian Renaissance and Early Baroque eras. But his transcriptions had little to do with the orthodoxy of so-called ‘historically informed’ interpretation. In the belief that works of art can be removed from their original contexts, he used contemporary instrumental resources to discover new meaning and a new validity in the works of old masters.

Ben Webster was not exactly under-recorded during his forty-year playing career but he is among that exclusive hierarchy of jazz artists to whose consistent excellence there can never be an over-abundance of recorded testimony. This album has the merit of offering a nicely balanced and thoughtfully chosen selection of tracks. Four of the tunes are associated with Duke Ellington in whose saxophone section Ben was featured for more than ten years.

No, not more Vivaldi Violin Concertos! How can there be any more? Have not decades of scholarships overturned every possible rock to find every possible violin concerto by the composer of The Four Seasons, everybody's perennial favorite? Although the answer is apparently not, that is, in fact, good news: that there are still more lovely, charming, hilarious, touching, and mind-bogglingly difficult Violin Concertos by Vivaldi should warm the hearts and open the wallets of classical music lovers around the world.
