VA - Arvo Pärt: Musica Selecta (2015)
Classical | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | 02:21:15 | 332 MB
Label: ECM New Series

As the title and subtitle imply, this is a kind of greatest-hits album, with music selected by ECM label producer Manfred Eicher from the 12 albums on the label devoted to the music of Arvo Pärt. Pärt's music is so malleable that people tend to make their own versions of it rather than collect it, but if you wanted an anthology as a starter box, this would be the one to choose. Eicher has worked closely with Pärt since the 1980s, and he has indeed made a sensible "sequence" out of works that do not have a lot of contrast among them.

"…Musica Antiqua convey equal vitality and character to the two most striking rarities here. JCF Bach’s double concerto for fortepiano and viola appears as a prototype symphony with important solo interjections. Melodically unexceptional, it is nevertheless stylish in a jejune way. CPE Bach – the most iconoclastic of the sons – successfully combines the prevailing keyboard instruments of the day, harpsichord and fortepiano. Fingers fly with aplomb – and no little mischief – as one is left to ponder the impact of this last Bach generation on Mozart and Beethoven, with whom there were (and are) of course many significant connections. Goebel provides a historical wake-up call." ~Gramophone

Classical | WEB FLAC (tracks) & d. booklet | 75:58 min | 347 MB
Label: Deutsche Harmonia Mundi | Tracks: 15 | Rls.date: 2015

This exciting release from period ensemble Musica Fiata is a rare treat, featuring the work of composer Johann Hermann Schein (1586) and the heterogeneous collection of motets that make up his Cymbalum Sionium. Although Cymbalum Sionium has always attracted musicological interest, performances of most works within the piece have been very rare up until now. Schein’s melodic gifts, harmonic sensitivity as well as feeling for varied affects and great sense of structure enabled him to absorb an incredible range of musical influences, imbuing them with the freshness of a gifted young composer creating music which still moves us today.
