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.

Francis Poulenc's songs are among the most beautiful and accomplished in the entire French repertoire. A friend of poets like Apollinaire, Eluard, Aragon and Louise de Vilmorin, he was constantly alert to their imaginative worlds and their mystery. The voluptuous or nostalgic nonchalance, the gentle melancholy or the impertinent flippancy of these works never appear to take themselves seriously, and invariably represent the highest art. On this recording, the renowned Belgian soprano Sophie Karthauser returns to harmonia mundi for her first recital program, performing a generous selection of Poulenc's Melodies.

Post-Rock | Label: Constellation Records - CST126

Luciferian Towers is the perfect name for a Godspeed You! Black Emperor album, matched only, perhaps, by the title of its 2000 classic Lift Your Skinny Fists Like Antennas To Heaven. In a way, this new one - the band’s third since reuniting in 2011 - feels like a bookend to Lift, in that it’s similarly powerful, but far more sinister. (If we want to extend that idea even further, “heaven” is in the title of one, “Lucifer” the other.)

Jowee Omicil is a jazz artist unlike any you've heard before. He brings a novel and distinctly Afro-Haitian perspective to his music. Omicil's melodic storytelling blends flavors from his Creole roots with gospel, soul, hip-hop and folk, not to mention nods to the masters - from Charlie Parker to Ornette Coleman. Let's BasH!, Omicil's fourth album, is both a cry of war and a declaration of love - but above all, it's a symbol of his mission to expand the popularity of jazz.

When it comes to the boundary-stretching spirit that has become so widespread among many of today's leading jazz musicians, drummer Mark Guiliana deserves credit for being one of the most enthusiastic embodiments of this attitude. He has a longstanding passion for electronic music, as heard especially on the releases on his own Beat Music label (2014's My Life Starts Now and Beat Music: The Los Angeles Improvisations).

Are you ready for extreme 18th century keyboard? The typically sparse packaging graphics of this ECM release may indicate only to German speakers what's contained inside: a "Tangentenflügel" is a tangent piano, a rare keyboard instrument of Mozart's time that used hammers, striking the strings at a tangent, but no dampers. The sound combines qualities of a clavichord (its nearest relative, but the tangent piano is louder), a fortepiano, and a harpsichord.

The performances by Bassorilievi are characteristically energetic and stylish.

In 16th century France the protestant milieu was intensely oppressed. The grisly culmination of this oppression came on the night of the 23rd/24th August 1572 with the St Bartholomew's Day Massacre, during which thousands of Huguenots were killed in Paris.

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..
