Somei Satoh: Kisetsu, Kyokoku and Violin Concerto

Somei Satoh: Kisetsu, Kyokoku and Violin Concerto
classical / avant-garde | EAC (FLAC, cue, log) | 188 MB, RS
Label: Camerata, 2004 | Time: 62:55

In the post-Takemitsu era, Somei Satoh has steadily been gaining notoriety as one of Japan’s most internationally celebrated and significant composers of contemporary music. A largely self-taught musician, he came to the technical elements of music not from the usual perspective of western proportions and balance of harmony, counterpoint and orchestration, but rather from a deep understanding of the philosophies of Shinto and Zen Buddhist beliefs. This background reveals a music that delights in the world of infinite spaces and suspended time. His works are fragile in their clarity and simplicity, but are not simplistic or facile. His work represents a kind of sculptural minimalism infused with the lyrical sense of Romanticism. He wrote his violin concerto for Anne Akiko Meyers.
Esa-Pekka Salonen: Foreign Bodies; Wing On Wing; Insomnia (2005)

Esa-Pekka Salonen: Foreign Bodies; Wing On Wing; Insomnia (2005)
Contemporary Classical | DG | 2005 | 66:29 | EAC (FLAC, cue, no log) | Booklet | 327 MB
Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra, Esa-Pekka Salonen, conductor, Anu Komsi, soprano, Piia Komsi, soprano

This trio of recent works by Salonen (b. 1958) suggests that he's one of the most interesting composers on today's scene. All three share the virtues of his highly individual style, modernistic and accessible. “Foreign Bodies” is music of muscular, extroverted energy; “Wing on Wing” meditates mesmerizingly on the architectural ideas of Frank Gehry, assembling high-tech orchestral-electronic textures that gleam and shimmer like the wings of Disney Hall.
"...two coloratura sopranos join the orchestra sometimes as soloists, sometimes as instruments among others. In the beginning of the piece I pair them with the lowest-sounding woodwind instruments, the contrabassoon and the contrabass clarinet, and create a new kind of hybrid instrument, a sci-fi fantasy of a union between humans and machines."

Christian Weber - 3 Suits & A Violin
Free Improv/Avant-Garde | EAC (FLAC+CUE+LOG) | 237 MB (WinRAR - 3% Rec.) | 2006 | Complete Scans
Recorded at DRS Radio Studio 2 on September 13th & 14th, 2002 by Andy Neresheimer

What Christian Weber and Co. have achieved on 3 Suits & A Violin is a music that eschews formulaic approaches and instead temper their group sound in dense laminations of texture and sonic residue. The result is an arresting music which combines elements of group-improvised minimalism, electro-acoustic improvisation and avant-garde chamber music into a texturally rich exploration of detailed noise texture... In Christian Weber's work noise has become closely connected to the repertoire, that his music sits very comfortably within this, as if to question if, then, noise has such a natural and reflexive occurrence on the instrumental practice, so then, he constructs pieces which are bathed in these static residues and phantom details.

Recent recordings of the trumpet concertos or of Epithalame are more brilliantly recorded and supremely performed. However these early performances, conducted either by the composer or that arch-champion of modern music Ernest Bour with soloists that have long been associated with these works, have an unmistakable flavour of authenticity and enthusiastic commitment. Not to be missed.

Russ Lossing - All Things Arise
Jazz/Free Improvisation | EAC (FLAC+CUE+LOG) | 192 MB (WinRAR - 3% Rec.) | 2006 | Complete Scans
Digital recording on June 13, 2022 at Charlestown Road Studio, Hampton N.J.

For Lossing, improvisation is clearly a special act, a study in transparence and transformation, a creative exchange among the elements. One hears fresh relations of time and space. His acute sense of time connects inevitably to its absence. Space is heard in his sense of density, the room he can make around a note even at high speed, the contrasts between counterpoint and elegant strings of simple notes. Space is also vertical in Lossing's music - in the ways that wide and tight intervals interact in his chords. This solo CD seems almost two-sided, like the LP of tradition. There is a side of free improvisation followed by treatments of largely familiar themes. We might think of it as a voyage inward and a voyage outward; a journey forward followed by one into the past.

Walter Benjamin said, "I have nothing to say: only to show." For Wolpe, too, montage was the form that counteracts the illusions of progress and development. While giving a lecture on his early years, Wolpe played a recording of the first movement of 'Enactments'. He described the music as a panorama or landscape of multiple simultaneities and unforeseeable, non-directed events. The situations are highly calculated, but you cannot explain or infer what is going to happen: curves hugely expanding, curves enormously contracting, new curves, a sound, a hit, a tone, a silence.... Every event is so freshly invented, so newly born that it has almost no history in the piece itself but its own actual presence. It has its presence, its now situation, and then the now situation is joined with another, with the next now - an unfoldment of nows. "Lecture on Dada."

Hello buddies! I know many of you know about this set and how the modern recording by Metzmacher is maybe, more interesting than this one, but it contains some historical recordings by conductors who knew and met Hartmann and worked close to him, such as Rafael Kubelik, a great champion of his symphonies and stage music.
Enjoy!
