The greatest of Mozart's wind serenades and the toughest of Alban Berg's major works might seem an unlikely pairing, but in an interview included with the sleeve notes for this release, Pierre Boulez points up their similarities. Both works are scored for an ensemble of 13 wind instruments (with solo violin and piano as well in the Berg) and both include large-scale variations as one of their movements - and Boulez makes the comparisons plausible enough in these lucid performances. It's rare to hear him conducting Mozart, too, and if the performance is a little brisker and more strait-laced than ideal, the EIC's phrasing is a model of clarity and good taste. It's the performance of the Berg, though, that makes this such an important issue; both soloists, Mitsuko Uchida and Christian Tetzlaff, are perfectly attuned to Boulez's approach - they have given a number of performances of the Chamber Concerto before - and the combination of accuracy and textural clarity with the highly wrought expressiveness that is the essence of Berg's music is perfectly caught.

”The sort of musical talent Zoltán Kocsis displays is something we’re blessed with maybe once or twice a century. It is a priceless treasure that we should take good care of!” – writes György Kroó, an influential music critic of his time on 21 March 1970 about the then 18-year-old young musician. The quotation clearly illustrates the extent of professional interest in Kocsis’ achievements already in the early days of his career, and the expectations kept rising only to put a heavy burden and responsibility on the pianist. Many others have been seen to collapse under such pressure.

Then Somis appeared on the scene. He was possessed of the finest and most majestic bow stroke in Europe. He overcame limits which foiled others and avoided the pitfalls into which others fell [] A single bow stroke lasted so long that the mere remembrance of it causes one to hold ones breath; it seemed like a taut silk thread which, in order to preserve the purity of tone, was festooned with silver and filigree gold mixed with diamonds, rubies, garnets and above all pearls.

It’s no wonder that a pianist with such a large sonic vision of her own instrument has an orchestral way of imagining sound and sonic associations, with her dedications to both the solo and the large ensemble formats complementing each other. Unexpected could be her interest to the song imprint and the voice (here delivered to the singers Bjork Nielsdottir and Laura Polence), because the impulse to work with it comes from other concerns and interests, but the Slovenian artist values timbre and acoustic quality in a special way: her love for vocal music is understandable.

Saint Etienne's eighth record, Words and Music by Saint Etienne, is centered on a theme that has been part of their music since the group began. They've always been one of the most nostalgic groups around, draping themselves in the visuals, styles, and sounds of the past while still staying modern. They've rarely seemed to be touched by the past on a personal level, but now perhaps age and experience have given them a reason to look back at their own lives and do a bit of summing up…

Genre: Reggae, Dub / Label: Ministry Of Sound

Stylistically, reggae incorporates some of the musical elements of rhythm and blues, jazz, mento a celebratory, rural folk form that served its largely rural audience as dance music and an alternative to the hymns and adapted chanteys of local church singing, calypso, African music, as well as other genres. One of the most easily recognizable elements is offbeat rhythms; staccato chords played by a guitar or piano on the offbeats of the measure. The tempo of reggae is usually slower than ska but faster than rocksteady.The concept of "call and response" can be found throughout reggae music.

Minsarah’s debut, self-titled, album (ENJ94922) was awarded the German Jazz Critics Prize. Intense cooperation in the US and Europe with one of the living jazz legends followed - Lee Konitz - which resulted in two recordings, Deep Lee (ENJ95172) and the recent and highly acclaimed Live at the Village Vanguard (ENJ95422). Here we have again a group that easily and comfortably juggles notes, sounds, styles, atmospheres and experiences. An amalgam of jazz, pop and classical - blurring the lines by transcending ideas between worlds which are thought to be so different.

Fans of European classical power metal will find ten great metal songs on “Welcome Storm”, all of which glowing with impressive power chords and impressive vocals. Now and again certain American influences creep through. LionSoul are definitely a positive exception on the Italian scene – they stay away from the typical scheme of things which take the form of very high vocals, fast riffing and classical-bombastic, exaggerated keyboard parts. “Welcome Storm” is power metal as it should be: heavy, lively, raw and still melodic.

Masal is the band performing the compositions by French musician Jean-Paul Prat. After the album "Masal", a true Zeuhlian classic recorded in 1982 under the name of Jean-Paul Prat (Including fourteen musicians), and "Galgal" released in the year 2009 (The Master of Ceremony performs on keyboards while the drummer's seat has been taken over by his son Jean Prat), the current quintet Masal offers "Viens Des Quatre Vents" (Musea, 2014), the obvious sequel to the previous work. The typical rhythmic rigour dear to Jean-Paul Prat can be found here, as well as the maturation of a true teamwork. The music proves to be softer and more powerful at the same time, thanks to a velvet duet made of guitar and saxophone, playing along a strong trio of piano-bass-drums…

Tempest has a band name that might suggest a group of sneering, leather-wearing, head-banging metal heads, but the group's music is less threatening and more expansive than its name suggests. Tempest plays traditional Celtic music with a rock & roll intensity that's accented by a wide range of influences from the blues to American country music, Cajun 2-steps, and Arabic music, with some old-time San Francisco psychedelic flair…
