Parlophone has unveiled the most anticipated installment of their definitive David Bowie reissue campaign with the release of "A New Career in a New Town". What makes this particular box set so special is that the collection’s focal point is the late, great Duke’s Berlin period, an era considered by many fans to be his most creative span in a career defined by constant change. Working in tandem with longtime producer Tony Visconti and friend Brian Eno (himself immersed in Germany’s experimental electronic movement of the '70s through his collaborative efforts with Cluster), Bowie ushered himself into the punk and new wave era by going against the grain of the time, looking to the works of such Krautrock heroes as Can, Kraftwerk and Neu! to inspire the conception of the three LPs constructed between 1977 and 1979: Low, “Heroes” and Lodger, known by most as the singer’s Berlin Trilogy.

Ever since he was a teenager and his discovery of Stan Getz‘ legendary album Focus, Sylvain Rifflet had dreams of making a record that would revisit the same format, and give new impetus to the saxophonist’s very successful blend of classics and jazz. It was an ambitious project, but also an opportunity which Verve has now provided.

If there's one period to which we feel specially attracted, it's the time when Ravel and Bartók wrote their sonatas and rhapsodies. Music styles from all corners of the world were blowing across the European continent, taking root as folk dances, blues rhythms and exotic melodies in the hearts of classically trained musicians. How very similar to our own situation.

It began with a piece which I fell in love with: Eugène Ysaÿe’s Poème élégiaque. You have to tune the bottom violin string a tone lower. That explains the dark character, which you hear particularly in the middle, which is a funeral march. Ysaÿe dedicated it to Gabriël Fauré. And so the idea for this CD was born: violin music by composers who honoured and inspired one another.

Sony Classical is delighted to bring you the world premiere recording of Baroque concertos by anonymous composers associated with the legendary Dresdner Hofkapelle. The concertos are part of the infamous "Schrank II" (Cabinet II) archive in the Dresdner Court Church destroyed in World War II. This collection includes instrumental works that have survived in manuscript form and that belonged for the most part to the Court Orchestra’s leader, Johann Georg Pisendel (1687–1755). Robin Peter Müller has singled out six of the finest violin concertos from Schrank II’s collection, some of which he has reconstructed for the purposes of the present recording with his period-instrument ensemble.

Although Claude Debussy, born near Paris in 1862 and the thirteen years younger Basque Maurice Ravel had very different personalities, they were united through their music in the extension and even intermittent suspension of the borders of traditional tonality and the deviation of their rythmic structures from their customary course – Volodymyr Lavrynenko and argovia philharmonic present the two chief protagonists of French Impressionism.
