New Age composer and keyboardist Øystein Sevåg was born in Norway in 1957, beginning piano lessons at age five. As a teen he played bass in a rock band but returned to his classical roots in time to study piano, flute and composition at the Music Conservatory of Oslo; by the 1980s, however, Sevåg had become fascinated by the possibilities offered by the development of the synthesizer, and he plunged into electronic music with his self-released 1989 debut LP "Close Your Eyes and See". The product of five years in the studio, the album slowly crept into Billboard's New Age charts, and it landed Sevåg on the Windham Hill label to issue the follow-up, 1993's "Link"…

The cover of every CIMP CD contains a “statement of purpose” describing the imprint’s m.o. and including the mandate, “Give [the disc] your undivided attention and it will reward you. CIMP records are not intended to be background music.” These words should be kept in mind, especially while listening to Ancestral Link Hotel’s 21-minute title track. Byard Lancaster begins with a chant and a wail, pulls out the Afro flute for some quick runs and eventually picks up his alto. Drummer Harold E. Smith starts on conch shell and didgeridoo. Two bassists, Bert Harris and Ed Crockett, provide spare but percussive drones that come and go as needed. Anyone expecting “something to happen” misses the point. Anyone listening closely will be swept up by the organic flow of the music.

On the occasion of his 80th birthday, Die Schachtel is proud to present "Punctum Contra Punctum", a deluxe compact disc box dedicated to Aldo Clementi, one of the most important figures of Italian music of the 20th Century.

After decades of recording for RCA Victor, Atkins switched labels; this 1985 effort is a summit meeting of sorts with young guitar hotshots like Larry Carlton, George Benson, Mark Knopfler, Steve Lukather, and Earl Klugh, plus session A-teamers like Boots Randolph, Larrie Londin, David Hungate, Mark O'Connor and others. Atkins' tone is, as usual, faultless, and his playing superb. If the "meetings" don't always come off, it's usually due to the overzealousness of the other guitar players (Lukather's over-the-top style screams '80s big hair, for instance), not Chet, whose playing always exercises the utmost in restraint in every situation. All in all, a good modern-day Chet Atkins album, but not the place to start a collection.
Kammerorchester Basel & Giovanni Antonini - Haydn 2032, Vol. 5: L'homme de génie (2017)

Classical | WEB FLAC (tracks) & d. booklet | 80:42 min | 401 MB
Label: Alpha | Tracks: 14 | Rls.date: 2017

Haydn 2032, the ambitious project of recording the complete symphonies of Haydn, has been placed from the start under the artistic direction of Giovanni Antonini, with two ensembles, Il Giardino Armonico, which made the first four volumes, and the Kammerochester Basel, to which this fifth volume and the next two are assigned.

Label: Carus | Tracks: 16 | Rls.date: 2017

Although vocal music accounts for only a small part of Luigi Boccherini’s works, his Stabat Mater in F minor, G532, is one of the most exquisite settings of this sequence from the 13th century. The first version is recorded here; it is scored for soprano and string quintet and dates from 1781. It captivates the listener by the intimacy of Boccherini’s musical language which is particularly suited to the contemplative poetry depicting Mary’s anguish during her Son’s crucifixion.

Gábor Farkas, MAV Symphony Orchestra & Gábor Takács-Nagy - Farkas: Orchestral Music, Vol. 5
Classical | WEB FLAC (tracks) & d. booklet | 73:18 min | 297 MB
Label: Toccata Classics | Tracks: 17 | Rls.date: 2017

The Toccata Classics survey of the music of the Hungarian composer Ferenc Farkas (19052000) continues with this fifth album of his orchestral music. Earlier releases have presented the lighter side of his music, with its quasi-Baroque textures and buoyant good humour, but this one shows Farkas working on a larger scale and in generally darker mood. Here he uses the full resources of the symphony orchestra in a number of powerful and dramatic works, including two movements from a symphony that he later withdrew and an orchestration of Liszts Funérailles. A lighter bonne bouche the Dances from the Mátra, rather like Kodálys Dances from Gálanta rounds things off.

The discovery of Telemann’s previously unknown Altona Jubel-Music von 1760 in an omnibus manuscript is remarkable in several respects. It was returned to Hamburg State and University Library in 1998 from Armenia, where it had been deposited for wartime safekeeping. ‘Already immediately after the first performance of the work in Altona’s principal church on 16 October 1760, an unknown reporter writing in the Altonaer Mercurius judged that it was “a superbly beautiful composition”.
