Genre: Classical / Label: SOMM Recordings

SOMM Recordings is delighted to announce the label debuts of two exciting young Slovenian soloists flautist Boris Bizjak and violinist Lana Trotovek and 2015 Wigmore Hall String Quartet Competition winners, the Piatti Quartet. They come together for revelatory performances of six pieces for flute, violin and string quartet elements by Frank Anton Hoffmeister, all receiving their first recordings. Now overshadowed by his illustrious contemporaries, Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven (music by all whom, including the Diabelli Variations, he published), Hoffmeister was himself a prolific composer in every form. Although the flute is often placed centre-stage in these six works, all demonstrate Hoffmeisters eloquently proportioned, life-enhancing and integrated feeling for chamber music. The two most substantial works here are a taut, dramatically urgent Quartet for flute, violin, viola and cello in C minor, and an E-flat major Quintet for flute, violin, two violas and cello of Mozartian mien and mood. With echoes of Gluck, Mozart and Haydn, two Trios for flute, violin and cello (in B-flat major and D major) and a Duetto in G major for flute and violin offer superbly expressive examples of Hoffmeisters music at its most effusive and engagingly virtuosic.

I was impressed with this Roger Hodgson song. "If Everyone Was Listening" at my first rehearsal with Supertramp in July 1973. It subsequently appeared on our album Crime Of The Century. Bob Mintzer included the Jim Scott composition "Gather The Spirit" on his album Quality Time and Andy Scott (no relation to Jim) arranged it for Bob to play with a string orchestra at the 2015 Hong Kong Summer Jazz Festival. Andy recently distilled his orchestral arrangement to four string players, saxophone and Hammond organ. "Lord Stackhouse" was originally written for me by Andy Scott and was featured on his Sax Assault album Sax Of Gold in 2007. The ballad is a challenge, mainly due to its complex chords. The poignant tune "Del Soldato In Trincea" was written by Paulo Fresu for Ermanno Olmi's 2014 film Torneranno i Prati (Greenery Will Bloom Again), a tribute to the suffering of Italian soldiers in the First World War. I was introduced to it by Raimondo Meli Lupi, who featured it on his album 1000 Papaveri Rossi.

Genre: Jazz / Label: Jazzman Records

Founded in 1972, SteepleChase Records is one of the most significant and prolific European jazz record labels. With a catalogue running to well over 200 titles, the Copenhagen-based imprint has recorded and released music from some of the greatest names in jazz, including Dexter Gordon, Andrew Hill, Jackie McLean, Horace Parlan, Chet Baker and Stan Getz.
Starting out by recording visiting Americans when they performed at the legendary Café Montmartre, founder Nils Winther was encouraged to start the label by none other than the great Jackie McLean, who was the first artist to release a record on the new imprint.From there, Steeplechase rapidly grew into one of the foremost labels to document European jazz with all its distinctive originality and style. With a particular emphasis on recording front rank American artists who had chosen the expatriate life in Europe, Steeplechase was first in line to document the sounds of the greats as they developed in exile.Featuring in-demand tracks from the likes of Billy Gault, Johnny Dyani and Khan Jamal, and unearthing deep cuts from greats like Jackie McLean and Mary Lou Williams, our Spiritual Jazz 11: Steeplechase pays tribute to one of Europe's most important jazz labels.

It was a particularly innovative period: the telescope, the pendulum clock and Newton’s laws of gravity are just a few examples of the developments and discoveries of the 17th century. No wonder that music also experienced many innovations.

Comparatively few listeners even today know how much Dussek did toward developing the technical resources of the piano. The contemporary of Mozart, and a great pianist in his own right, he composed more than fifty Sonatas, twelve Concertos and many smaller pieces responding to the tastes of his audiences and publishers for smaller and lighter pieces such as variations on popular themes.The Sonatinas gathered here were composed primarily for instruction: simple and conventional in style, smaller in technical and emotional range, as well as shorter in length than his sonatas. Yet Dussek was a great melodist and, even when trivial, he never ceases to be graceful and pleasing. Dussek was resident in London throughout the 1790s and published there a good proportion of his prophetically Romantic sonatas and shorter pieces such as these sonatinas, which appeared in print in 1793 (Op.20) and 1794 (Op.34).

Among the most popular of pianistic genres now, boasting virtuoso showpieces from Bach to Prokfiev, the keyboard toccata first appeared in print in 1591, within this collection of work by Sperindio Bertoldo. Sadly the collection only appeared posthumously, for Bertoldo died around 1570, at the age of 40 or so, at the height of an illustrious if eventful career. He had become organist of Padua Cathedral in his early 20s, but in 1567 he was suspended for insubordination. Having evidently shown appropriate contrition, he was reinstated, and remained in post until his death, having at that stage published only books of madrigals.

Philippe Bianconi offre de ces pages tardives mais essentielles une lecture claire et limpide, servie par une énergie remarquable. Au-delà de leur défi technique redoutable, voire expérimental, les Etudes — dédiées à Chopin, que Debussy vénérait —, se révèlent sous ses doigts, poésie, rythme et couleur. En complément de programme, les deux pièces ultimes de son œuvre, ainsi que celles de la suite tirée du Martyre de saint Sébastien, montrent un visage différent de Debussy, spirituel, dépouillé et poignant.

Am Anfang war das Wort: Olivier Messiaen, Kind einer Familie von Poeten, entfaltet die tausend Schichten dieser Symphonie, die keine ist, aus einem Wort, das keiner kennt: Turangalila.Das Sanskritwort Turangalîla bedeutet grob übersetzt Dynamik und Vitalität. Olivier Messiaen, ein Experte für indische Rhythmen, gab seinem gigantischen Werk diesen Titel und taufte es »Hymne an die Freude«. Das Orchester des Nationaltheaters Mannheim und sein Generalmusikdirektor Alexander Soddy schwelgen im Überschwang des Werkes, mit einem Ensemble von über 100 Musikern, zu dem die Turangalîla-Spezialisten Tamara Stefanovich (Klavier) und Thomas Bloch (Ondes Martenot) gehören. Mit seinen verrückten Tempi, Rhythmen und Tonalitäten ist Messiaens Liebeslied ein dionysischer Klangrausch, der seinesgleichen sucht.

Peter Breiner is one of the world’s most performed composer/arrangers, with a boundless musicality that has led him to create fusions of music from a variety of genres. Drawing on traditions established by Brahms and Dvořák and showcasing leading folk music soloists, his Slovak Dances are an exuberant and kaleidoscopic monument rooted in Slovak musical folklore. It comprises 16 symphonic fantasias on songs that evoke varying emotions with an autobiographical element that follows Breiner’s life from his origins in Humenné and Košice to New York.

On Woven, the ensemble Wilde Roses twines together anonymous music from the British medieval and renaissance eras with early works pulled from the folk tradition. This music was the fabric of society, created from handed down music and woven into early counterpoint, like thread across the warp of a medieval weaver. Traveling from the 1100s to the end of the 1600s, and from the reign of King Henry I to Charles II, this program is a wonderful musical time machine.

De la culture populaire à l’avant-garde en passant par l’art de la scène, ce prolongement sonore questionne l’univers musical du peintre et révèle ses amitiés avec les plus illustres compositeurs de son temps – Debussy, Satie, Falla, Stravinsky, Poulenc, Milhaud, rien de moins !
