Besides his ever-popular ballet Spartacus (Suites Nos. 1–3 are on Naxos 8.550801), Khachaturian also wrote other stage music, including a splendid score for Boris Lavrenyov’s play about the great Russian author Mikhail Lermontov. The composer described his powerful Second Symphony, written during the final years of World War II, as ‘a requiem of wrath, a requiem of protest against war and violence’. At crucial junctures, three tubular bells toll, giving the symphony its memorable subtitle.

Status Quo are an English rock band who play a brand of boogie rock. The group originated in The Spectres, founded by schoolboys Francis Rossi and Alan Lancaster in 1962.[1] After a number of lineup changes, which included the introduction of Rick Parfitt in 1967, the band became The Status Quo in 1967 and Status Quo in 1969…

The dexterity of the band that’s so evident on Exploded View comes from a collective lifetime in music. Anika’s résumé alone is incredible. She’s been a member of Geoff Barrow of Portishead’s BEAK> project, a successful solo artist, a DJ and radio host, and a live collaborator with the likes of Michael Rother (Neu!), Jandek, and Pete Swanson. Thulin is the producer for Crocodiles and an accomplished solo artist and producer whose career in music at present is over a decade long, and everyone else involved in the project has worked in music in Mexico City for many years. Exploded View emphasizes the talents of Anika and her collaborators in a new way, one that cuts through its improvisational roots with laser-focus and intent. For fans of Can, dub, and political revolution.

Though Mark Lettieri’s third solo album may be a collection of independent vignettes, as a unit they cohere more than ever. United more by feel than concept, they provide ten snapshots of how far their composer has come as an artist. “I wanted to make a statement, and in that respect it’s almost my first record,” says Lettieri of the sessions. “I’m happy with everything I’ve done prior, but I think I’m finally getting it all together.” Listening to the tightness of his band, members of which he drew from the Dallas-Fort Worth funk belt of which he has become an important fixture, it’s easy to agree. The core trio consists of Lettieri, bassist Wes Stephenson, and drummer Jason Thomas. To this nexus he invites guest satellites Shaun Martin (Rhodes, synths, piano), Milo Deering (pedal steel guitar and fiddle), and Bobby Sparks (synths).

Audiences around Britain and beyond became devoted followers of the Elias String Quartet s Beethoven Project, in which the complete quartets were performed over the course of two seasons. This disc offers the chance to hear the fruits of the ensemble s collective experience and deep thinking on the works. We are proud to release the second volume of this collection on the Wigmore Hall Live label which presents three masterpieces: String Quartet in F Op. 18 No. 1, String Quartet in A minor Op. 132 and String Quintet in C Op. 29. For the latter the Elias String Quartet is joined by Malin Broman who is in huge demand as a soloist, chamber musician and orchestral leader. In this rousing concert, recorded live in concert at Wigmore Hall, the ensemble explores these works with sustained intensity and meticulous attention to detail.

Felix Mendelssohn did visit the city of Birmingham several times, but the Chandos label's Mendelssohn in Birmingham series refers for the most part to these contemporary performances by the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra under Edward Gardner. If you've been interested in trying out an item from the series, this one can be recommended strongly. The low-key, lyrical approach of conductor Gardner works beautifully in these two pieces. Especially effective is the Violin Concerto in E minor, Op. 64, in the hands of violinist Jennifer Pike: she catches the novel role of the soloist in this concerto in a way that bigger performances do not.

Bibio's Stephen Wilkinson is no stranger to revisiting and updating the past on his albums, whether it's the history of music in general or just his own. On Silver Wilkinson, he returned to the folktronic idylls of the Vignetting the Compost era with a newfound purpose; on A Mineral Love, he dissects the fusion of 21st century electronic music and '70s and '80s R&B, funk, and pop that made Ambivalence Avenue so compelling. The warmth of the bubbling keyboards and easy grooves on songs like the summery "Town & Country" suggest that Wilkinson spent hours crate-digging for the perfect samples…

While looking at himself in the mirror, our protagonist reflects on who he truly is. He has an image of himself; but, the man in the glass has a different view. Could these two conflicting images of the same person be " just two lost souls swimming in a fish bowl, year after year, running over the same old ground? “ And so our story begins!

It’s not often that seasoned jazz musicians find one of their own recordings truly revelatory in hindsight. Yet here’s a striking example. As acclaimed veteran pianist Hal Galper recalls in his CD liner notes, he had no intention of releasing this live 2016 trio session with bassist Jeff Johnson and drummer John Bishop until he heard a playback and found himself wondering, “Who is this pianist?” To Galper, the playback revealed such a heightened level of trio interplay, not fully appreciated during the performance, that he arranged for it to be released on CD and dubbed, aptly enough, The Zone. It’s hard to imagine Galper devotees or, more broadly, jazz piano trio fans faulting the decision.
