"Young violinist Franziska Hölscher presents her debut album Sequenza on CAvi. In Schumann’s Violin Sonata No. 2 Franziska Hölscher and the pianist Severin von Eckardstein prove to be a well-rehearsed duo that knows how to perform Schumann’s music with a lively, communicative and often very intimist playing. This is a highly interesting and above all very honest interpretation of this sonata. Inspired and inspiring performances of works by Heinrich Ignaz Biber, Salvatore Sciarrino and Luciano Berio complete the program. Hölscher’s playing technique is outstanding. Every note, every phrasing arises from a deep and very natural understanding of the music." (Alain Steffen, pizzicato.lu)

No worldly commotion is heard in Heaven! All live in gentlest peace'. Such is the child-like innocence which permeates Mahler's Fourth Symphony, and yet beneath the surface there is more than meets the eye: an undercurrent of mysticism; a momentary glimpse behind the curtain at something timeless and unsettling. Star Russian soprano Sofia Fomina joins the London Philharmonic Orchestra and its Principal Conductor Vladimir Jurowski in this performance of Mahler's beguiling Symphony, recorded live at Southbank Centre's Royal Festival Hall.

When the Russian designer and architect Viktor Hartmann died unexpectedly of an aneurysm in 1873, Mussorgsky fell into a state of profound depression. The two artists had grown close. A memorial exhibition was quickly planned, and over four hundred of Hartmann's works were displayed. Some of the paintings and sketches exhibited were the source of inspiration for Mussorgsky as he set out to compose Pictures at an Exhibition, a suite of brief movements penned in June 1874 - three months after the exposition took place. Seemingly depicting the viewer wandering through the gallery, moving from one painting to the next, the piece has become one of the giants of the piano repertoire, and has been orchestrated by a number of composers, including the splendid version by Maurice Ravel.

Der persönliche und musikalische Weg des in Bergedorf bei Hamburg geborenen Johann Adolph Hasse (1699–1783) führte vom strahlenden Barock Alessandro Scarlattis zur Klassik im Stile Joseph Haydns, von Neapel nach Wien, von Dresden nach Venedig und vom französischen zum preußischen Hof; dabei entwickelte er sich nicht nur zu einem wahren Europäer im umfassendsten Sinn des Wortes, sondern auch zu einem meisterhaften Schöpfer italienischer und lateinischer Vokalmusik.

The chamber combination of trombone and piano is unusual and charming. On "Sapphire", Peter Steiner and his pianist partner Constanze Hochwartner give an insight into how this combination can work, thereby exploding the myth of commonly-held preconceptions about what the trombone is capable of. It is not just the instrument that shall sound on the Day of Judgment; it can sing tenderly and sweetly, producing a myriad of timbres that sparkle like a sapphire.

The piece is unlike no other of its kind”, Béla Bartók affirmed: “the world of ideas it contains is entirely new”. Timbre acquired an unusual, novel dimension by having the two lowest strings tuned one half-step down, to B and F#, respectively. Thus the three lower strings form a B Minor chord, which Kodály places in particular prominence at the onset of the sonata……

If Jackson Browne had convincingly lowered the bar set by his first three albums on his fourth and fifth ones, his sixth, "Hold Out", found him once again seeking some measure of satisfaction, albeit in reduced circumstances. His songs were less philosophical, but they were also more personal. In "Of Missing Persons", he once again took on a eulogy as his subject, but unlike "Song to Adam" or "For a Dancer", there the song was directed to his late friend's daughter and encouraged her recovery: it was more a song for the living than for the dead.

Jackson Browne's messages had always seemed so important that one tended to overlook the sheer songwriting craft that went into his work, craft that was apparent, for example, on his 1982 single "Somebody's Baby", which became his biggest hit ever (and which appears on none of his albums, only being available on the soundtrack to Fast Times at Ridgemont High), and on songs like "Downtown", a street-life portrait on his seventh album, "Lawyers in Love".

Jackson Browne continued amassing a repertoire best suited to an Amnesty International benefit on his second highly politicized album, "World in Motion". War, homelessness, and Oliver North (though not by name) were condemned; freedom, truth, and Nelson Mandela were praised. Now and then, Browne drew parallels between the personal and the political, notably in the double-edged "Anything Can Happen", but for the most part he sermonized, frequently adopting the generalized terms and reasoning that sermons usually employ.

CALIGULA , the new album from LINGUA IGNOTA set for release on July 19th on CD/2xLP/Digital through Profound Lore Records, takes the vision of Kristin Hayter s vessel to a new level of grandeur, her purging and vengeful audial vision going beyond anything preceding it and reaching a new unparalleled sonic plane within her oeuvre. Succeeding her self-released 2017 All Bitches Die opus (re-released by Profound Lore Records in 2018), CALIGULA sees Hayter design her most ambitious work to date, displaying the full force of her talent as a vocalist, composer, and storyteller. Vast in scope and multivalent in its influences, with delivery nothing short of demonic, CALIGULA is an outsider s opera; magnificent, hideous, and raw.

The album features a host of esteemed guest vocalists and musicians telling their own personal stories, including Georgia Anne Muldrow, Emma-Jean Thackray, Joshua Idehen, Madison McFerrin, Chip Wickham, and James Alexander Bright.
