Bassist Eddie Gomez and pianist Cesarius Alvim met through the late Bill Evans while Gomez was still playing in his trio. A decade after Evans' death in 1980, they made their first album together, though it would be 20 years before they reunited for this impressive duo session. With minimal discussion of prospective songs, they work magic together in the studio, playing a mix of standards, obscurities, and originals. Gomez sometimes sings softly along with his bass (as he would do at times in Evans' group), while the less well-known Alvim proves himself to be a sensitive accompanist and lyrical soloist. Their spacious treatment of "Spring Is Here" brings out its bittersweet nature while taking this favorite into new territory.

Just as they did with their unexcitingly named 2010 debut, Vol. 1, Uncle Acid & the Deadbeats dedicate their sophomore album, the following year's tellingly named Blood Lust, to celebrating the Summer of Love's soul-chilling autumn: a blasted landscape, post-flower power, resembling Altamont's killing fields, reeking of the Manson Family murders, and, naturally, sounding like a mish-mash of all of the apocalyptic musical forces that converged upon that era. We're talking a mixture of psychedelic rock's harrowing comedown, garage and punk rock's nihilistic ascent, and the earliest manifestations of heavy metal's occult-laced, nerve-damaging bludgeon (later reclassified as doom) - all poured into a deadly cocktail…

The Healing Road is the instrumental project led by German keyboardist HansPeter Hess (The Bearded's Project), whose name was inspired by the book by Neil Peart (Rush) "Ghost Rider - Travels On The Healing Road".
"Backdrop" consists in two long pieces of music. To create something different from the previous albums, HansPeter Hess set some guidelines: less Piano sounds, less synthesizers, Moog or Hammond sounds… The album should have an acoustic, rural, pastoral atmosphere and contain as much acoustic instruments as he can get and play. Guitar player Thommy Frank features here, as well as Roland Enders, the latter performing the closing track, being a folk-song written and sung by him.

Ukab Maerd is a project formed by two former members of the progressive rock band Djam Karet, Chuck Oken, Jr. and Gayle Ellett. Joining the duo is French guitarist Richard Pinhas (Heldon) who adds guitar loops on three of the four tracks.
Dreamy and surreal, this CD effortlessly combines the traditional sounds of European Electronic music of the 1970’s, with today’s more modern aesthetics. Much of this music was recorded live in Southern California, at two different performances by Oken and Ellett. Later, Richard Pinhas’ processed guitar loops were blended into the mix, with Oken adding in a few additional new tones as well, creating the final release…

With Richard Strauss’ Elektra, the Salzburg Festival delivers a thoroughly impressive new production that the Vienna daily Kurier calls the “best new opera production of 2010”. Reaping acclaim are the top-quality vocalists as well as the mighty stage set and the sensitive direction of Nikolaus Lehnhoff. Portraying Elektra is Swedish soprano Iréne Theorin, who injects astonishing dramatic power into her role. “Impressive in every respect”, wrote the Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung about her role debut here. Internationally acclaimed Wagner singer Waltraud Meier also gives her spectacular, commanding stage debut here as Klytämnestra. They are complemented by an outstanding Eva-Maria Westbroek as Chrysothemis, and a forceful René Pape as Orest. Nikolaus Lehnhoff’s many years of experience on the world’s greatest stages are clearly visible in his direction of the singers: moving about a sinister, forbidding set bathed in suggestively changing lighting, the vocalists are treated as stage actors, whose expressive gestures are captured with particular vividness and immediacy by the camera. Leading the Wiener Philharmoniker is Daniele Gatti. Alternating between late 19th-century lyricism and early 20th-century excess, he clearly emphasizes the dual conflicts at the heart of the work.

If I were able to nominate my Artists of the Year Arabella Steinbacher and Vasily Petrenko would undoubtedly be my choices. Here they collaborate with the Russian National Orchestra. Last year I reviewed Steinbacher’s recording of the Shostakovich First and Second Violin Concertos and remain overjoyed by her superb playing with the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra under Andris Nelsons on Orfeo C 687 061 A. For the last few years I have been reporting on a number of Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra concerts with their principal conductor Vasily Petrenko.

This album features two major artists, past and present: Johannes Brahms and Arabella Steinbacher. However, even the best of artists have their less than perfect moments or works. These three sonatas, as played hereby Steinbacher and Kulek, come across as less exciting, lesser works by Brahms. The Sonata No. 1 sounds rather anemic as it begins (partly because of the recording quality), but Steinbacher chooses to play without much fullness or vibrato, even though she is playing a Stradivarius.

"Ambient Land 2" is a daring evolution of sound, an amazing exploration of time and space, and a masterful symphony of the mind. Half an hour of music stretches into infinity and opens the soul for inner visions otherwise buried beneath the everyday hustle of our fast moving world. While listening to the beatless soundscapes of "Ambient Land 2" feels like breathing, the overall composition and arrangement of the six tracks compares to a slow-motion blossoming of the most beguiling flowers.

Performing with “great aplomb” (FAZ), the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin, conducted by Stefan Soltesz, was also enthusiastically celebrated by critics and audience.

Arild Brøter provided an interesting musical solo project released under the band moniker Pymlico. The music he writes can be described as instrumental, progressive with symphonic rock. Melodic, but with allot of different variations. Brøter has worked on this project for quite some time and the debut CD Inspirations was released in 2011. "Directions" is the second album by Pymlico. The music is still in the style of progressive rock, but includes some other flavours as well, like ambient music, world music and film music. The music is at times darker and more moody than on the first album, but there are still plenty of cheerfull melodic phrases.
