SOUNDWAY

WO RLD

Soundway records presents ov erlook ed and forgotten music from the Islands of Guadeloupe and Martinique. Lilting biguines meet heav y gwo-k a drums and créole soul collides with the rhy thms of the carniv al. Guadeloupe and Martinique are part of the Lesser Antilles, the eastern Caribbean island chain that also includes Dominica, St. Lucia and Marie-Galante. They are departments of France (Départements outre-mer) and are gov erned from Paris to this day . This album focuses on the rich musical period of the ‘60s and early ‘70s on both islands, a time when Haitian compas, Congolese rumba and Cuban guaguanco combined with the local biguine sty le to create the sound of tumbélé, a uniquely French Antillean sty le that is partly a product of the colonial past of the Islands, in their position in the multi-cultural, multi-lingual “six th continent” of the Caribbean. The music on this album represents the shaping of a distinct musical identity — an identity that would giv e birth to zouk music in the late ‘70s—which conquered much of the Caribbean and Africa in the ‘80s. It contributed to the creation of a distinct créole identity , which has been shaped by France, Francophone Africa, Haiti, Puerto Rico and Cuba, but most importantly the musicians of Guadeloupe and Martinique and the rhy thms of the biguine, the bélé and the gwo-k a.

Carolin Widmann & Simon Lepper Feldman, Zimme rmann, Schoenbe rg, Xenakis 4763310 ECM NEW SERIES

028947633105 CD CLASSICAL

The young German violinist, Carolin Widmann, resident in Britain, follows up her romantic Schumann debut on ECM – nominated for a Gramophone A ward this month – with ‘Phantasy of Spring’, a very different recording of four uncompromising 20th century pieces – performances of which she has a deserved international reputation. While she made her critically -acclaimed ECM debut last autumn with a thoughtprovok ing account of Schumann’s three v iolin sonatas, Carolin Widmann’s reputation as a pioneering interpreter of contemporary music is spreading continuously . Teaming up with English pianist Simon Lepper she now presents a most v aried spectrum of 20th century v iolin literature. By exploring the acoustic and expressiv e conflicts between the stringed instrument and the well-tempered k ey board, all four pieces are preoccupied with duo constellations bey ond the traditional role models. Uncompromising and fiery renderings mak e for adv enturous listening throughout. Carolin Widmann (sister of German composer Jorg Widmann) gav e the world premieres of no fewer than fiv e v iolin concertos last y ear, including that of John Woolrich which she reprises with the Northern Sinfonia next April. She made her BBC Proms debut last y ear performing the Strav insky Violin Concerto with the BBC Sy mphony Orchestra under George Benjamin, and on 19 Nov ember mak es her Wigmore Hall recital debut with Dénes Várjon play ing the Schumann sonatas. Simon Lepper is especially known for his work accompany ing singers, among them Bry n Terfel, Angelik a Kirchschlager, Mark Padmore, Felicity Palmer, Kate Roy al and Joan Rodgers. He is an official accompanist for the BBC Cardiff Singer of the World Rosenblatt Song Prize and the Yehudi Menuhin Violin Competition.

Christian Gerharer & Rosamunde Quartet Othmar Schoek: Notturno 4766995 ECM NEW SERIES

028947669951

CD CLASSICAL

The outstanding German baritone Christian Gerhaher, winner of a BBC Music Magazine A ward earlier this year and rapidly becoming one of the most sought-after interpreters of Lieder today, makes his ECM debut with the Rosamunde Quartet in the very personal, romantic Notturno by Othmar Schoeck (1886–1957). Although generally ack nowledged as one of the leading composers of his nativ e Switzerland, Schoeck has nev er acquired a stable reputation outside the Germanspeak ing world. This is partly due to his strong focus on the sung word: His output comprises eight operas, some 400 songs and a couple of smaller instrumental work s. Moreov er, his essentially late-romantic sty le was considered démodé after the Second World War when the av ant-garde was arguing for a more rational and emotionally restricted approach to composition. “Here is a composer who deserv es rediscov ery ,” say s Heinz Holliger. “His work s often come across to me as immensely personal, intense utterances that are both touching and mov ing – perhaps none more so than the wonderful Notturno op. 47.” Composed by Schoek between 1931 and 1933, it serv ed as a personal confession after an unhappy extra-marital lov e affair. Its fiv e mov ements set v erses by German 19th-century -poet Nik olaus Lenau and by the great Swiss writer Gottfried Keller. The highly differentiated, insightful interpretation by Christian Gerhaher – one of the most distinguished young German “Lied” singers and a former disciple of Dietrich Fischer-Diesk au – and the Rosamunde Quartet offers a strong plea for Schoeck ’s expressiv e music and sheds an exciting light on his artistic preoccupation with the dark aby sses of human existence.

E arly music specialist, baritone Furio Zanasi and La C himera pay tribute to the Italian singer, F rancesco Rasi (1574-1621), one of the most fascinating musicians produced by the early Baroque era in Italy.

F rancesco Rasi (1574-1621), poet, composer and singer, quickly established a reputation as an exceptional singer and a virtuoso exponent of the lute. H is love of travelling saw him meet outstanding musicians including: Luca M arenzio, Jacapo P eri, Marco da G agliano and Claudio Monteverdi.

CLASSICAL

The distinguished Northern Sinfonia directed by Bradley Creswick , celebrate J.S. Bach’s enduring legacy , which continues to inspire composers and performers into the 21st century . The album shows the clear link between JS Bach and two more modern composers who cite him as an important influence. Strav insky ’s ‘Dumbarton Oak s’ uses similar instrumentation to Bach’s concertos and was written with a dedication to Bach. Similarly , in the twenty -first century , Tim Garland has employ ed almost the same instruments for his two pieces, which also carry a dedication to Bach. Tim’s liner notes explain some of the way s in which his compositions draw influence from Bach v ia Strav insky ’s work , demonstrating a direct lineage. The use of soprano saxophone instead of oboe has been done before; Bach himself transcribed these concertos sev eral times for different instruments as they (or their play ers) became av ailable. Tim Garland is arguably one of the finest play ers in the world on soprano saxophone. The album is recorded and engineered to the highest standard. Track s: J.S.

Batalha - Iberian Organ Music CD

CHALLENGE

CLASSICAL

Dutch k ey board play er Ton Koopman, also renowned for his recordings of baroque music by Bach and Buxtehude, play s rarely performed organ music from the late 17th century by composers from Spain and Portugal. Sev eral of the pieces included use the sound of the organ to represent the clamour of “Batalha” (the Spanish word for battles). Ton Koopman is one of the world’s foremost early music k ey board specialists and directors. He is particularly renowned for his work around the music of J. S. Bach, and was awarded the 2006 Bach Medal by the city of Leipzig at the annual Leipzig Bach Festiv al. He has recently finished an internationally acclaimed series of releases on Challenge Classics of Bach’s Cantatas, and is currently involv ed in recording the complete work s of Dieterich Buxtehude for the same label. The organ in the Church of Saint-Lambert in Woluwé-Saint-Lambert (a suburb of Brussels) was built in the Spanish sty le by Patrick Collon in 1985. Its design was largely inspired by Spanish instruments of the XVIIth and XVIIIth centuries. From the second half of the 17th century , organists in Spain and Portugal delighted in recreating the sounds of the battlefield on their instruments. Many of the pieces written at this time hav e surv iv ed, though unfortunately they are often anony mous. This CD presents three of these “batalhas”, one anony mous, one by Pedro de Araujo, and one by Antonio Correa Braga.

When the singer/songwriter movement boomed in the mid-1990s, Catie Curtis was at its core. A veteran artist with a 15 year career, Curtis has recorded nine solo albums and has toured with the Lilith Fair as well as Dar Williams and Mary Chapin Carpenter. Her songs have appeared in numerous television shows (Dawson’s Creek, Felicity, Grey’s Anatomy and Alias) and independent films (500 Miles to Graceland, A Slipping Down Life). And in 2009 she was honored to be selected to perform at the Obama inauguration in Washington D.C. Over the years, Curtis’ many fans have requested stripped down version of her classic songs, capturing the spirit and intimacy of her live shows. With Hello Stranger, Curtis achieves that career goal. The album , recorded in Nashville, features Curtis in the company of a select group of Nashville all-star pickers including Stuart Duncan (fiddle, mandolin) , Alison Brown (banjo) , Todd Phillips (bass), George Marinelli (guitar/mandolin/dobro) and Kenny Malone (percussion) on re-workings of some fan favorites as well as a few choice covers. Guests Darrell Scott and Mary Gauthier dropped by for vocal appear ances on several cuts, and the resulting album is reminiscent of Steve Earle’s Train A Comin’ project in its intimacy, and shows a side of Curtis’ musical persona never before captured on CD. Highlight tracks include the Curtis chestnut “My Dad’s Yard”, the title track “Hello Stranger” (featuring a duet with Mary Gauthier) and a cover of the Cat Steven’s classic “Tuesday’s Dead.

Paris / London - Testament CD3

ECM

JAZZ

Released to coincide with the 40th anniversary of ECM, these solo concerts from the great A merican pianist are recordings to put alongside the very finest in Keith Jarrett’s solo idiom. Recorded last year, they are released as a specially priced 3-CD set – three albums for the price of a double -album. At the end of 2008, Keith Jarrett added two concerts to his schedule at short notice – one at Paris’s Salle Pley el (Nov ember 26), one at London’s Roy al Festiv al Hall (December 1). The results were outstanding, ev en by Jarrett’s own high standards, with powerful emotions nev er far from the music’s surface. The open format, embracing much music in shorter episodes, mak es the work in “the tradition” of Radiance, but there are also flashes of the existential poetic flair which made for instance the Sun Bear Concerts a special musical experience. In his liner notes, Jarrett giv es a highly personal account of the music’s inspirational genesis. The English date was Jarrett’s first London solo concert for 18 y ears and, to quote one rev iewer, “triggered the sort of ecstasy that might greet a returning prophet”. Solo recordings hav e accounted for some of Keith Jarrett’s best-lov ed discs – from Facing You to Vienna Concert, La Scala, The Carnegie Hall Concert and more. The Köln Concert, of course, was to become one of the best-selling ‘jazz’ albums of all time, as well as the best-selling solo piano album in any genre, an album whose popularity has nev er waned. Now Testament further documents the exceptional nature of Jarrett’s solo music in the 21st century; Paris / London is certain to be one of the season’s best-selling albums.

Comprehensive anthology covering the career of one of the great cult artist of American rock ‘n’ roll: ROY LONEY – 28 tracks, 77 minutes Raven presents for the first time a comprehensive anthology covering the career of one of the great cult artist of American rock ‘n’ roll: ROY LONEY & THE PHANTOM MOVERS. A Hundred Miles an Hour 1978- 1989 is an exhilarating, multi-label collection, 28 tracks and 77 minutes of red hot rock ‘n’ roll. With superb quality audio, detailed liner notes, color booklet. Originally lead singer with the legendary Flamin’ Groovies, Loney kicked off his solo career with the Artistic As Hell EP (1978) – “Primitive rock with taste” as he called it, and it still sounds utterly contemporary. The superbly crafted Out After Dark album (1979) was semi-acoustic hard rock and rockabilly par excellence – as if Elvis and Scotty had been recorded by Jimmy Miller at Olympic rather than Sam Phillips at Sun. Celebratory anthem ‘Phantom Mover’ and voodoo rocker ‘Used Hoodoo’ are perfect examples of the genre. The killer rockabilly and gloriously R&B charged rockers continue with ‘Act Of Love’, ‘Down The Road Apiece’, ‘Lana Lee’, ‘Ragged But Wrong’ and ‘Chicken Run Around’. Roy Loney is still touring (including a current reunion with Groovie Cyril Jordan) . Loney is an innovator, bringing life back to some forgotten threads of rock ‘n’ roll. Tracks; A Hundred Miles An Hour / Love Is A Spider / Least Magnificent Moment (Of My Life) / Used Hoodoo / Born To Be Your Fool / Neat Petite / Return To Sender / I Love It / Scum City / She Run Away / Phantom Mover / People People / San Francisco Girls / Don’t Believe Those Lies (Live) / Act Of Love / Down The Road Apiece / Slip, Slide And Stomp / Panic To A Manic Degree / Double Dare / Lana Lee / You Can’t Be Too Wild / Driving Wheel / Ragged But Wrong / Slippin’ Out The Back Door / Renegade / Chicken Run Around / Ruin Your Shoes / Nervous Slim
