The Eberhard Weber volume in the ECM :Rarum series is another one of those revelatory spotlights on a player and composer whose entire identity has been shaped by his association with the label. The revelation is that Weber's bass playing and rainbow sense of harmonic interplay has in turn been perhaps more integral to shaping the sound and identity of the label. This collection of ten tracks showcases Weber's contributions as the leader of his fine, longstanding band Colours, his solo projects, and his contributions to the recordings of Gary Burton, Pat Metheny (who could forget his elegant, expressionistic bass playing on Watercolors, Metheny's sophomore ECM effort?), Ralph Towner, and Jan Garbarek.

Carl Maria von Weber's piano music, with the exception of Invitation to the Dance, is not nearly as well known as his operas, but it deserves more attention. Michael Endres makes a strong case for the music in this two-disc set. The most significant works, the four sonatas, are full of drama, colorful pianism, and lyrical melodies, particularly in Endres' hands. The sonatas are on a similar scale to those of Beethoven and Schubert, with the drama built of sharp contrasts in key, humor, and dynamics, and with beautiful, cantabile slow movements. Weber, like Beethoven, also took advantage of the size and scope of the piano's sound. Endres vividly brings out the drama and the brilliance of virtuosic passages, while maintaining a sense of refinement and ease with the music. The waltzes are particularly polished, but Endres' also recognizes their folk elements and gives them a wonderful energy and sparkle. The showpieces of Weber's piano works are the sets of variations, obviously written to impress audiences. Again, Endres handles the technical challenges easily and cleanly. In the second set here, the Variations on the aria "Vien'qua dorina bella," he is always aware that the theme was originally a vocal work, playing with song-like phrasing and coloring. The sound of the recording could be a little richer, but it doesn't hurt Endres superb performance.

Encore is a companion volume to Résumé, the widely-praised 2012 solo album from bassist Eberhard Weber. Unable to play bass anymore due to a stroke he suffered in 2007, Weber pored over the many live recordings made between 1990 and 2007 during his tenure with the Jan Garbarek Group. He isolated his unique electric bass solos from shows in 13 European cities and meticulously edited, rearranged and modified them with additional keyboard parts he played himself. He put the finishing touches on the material joined by an old friend, Dutch trumpeter and flugelhorn player Ack van Rooyen, who played on Weber’s album The Colours of Chloë more than 40 years ago.

Eberhard Weber played hundreds of concerts in his time as a member of the Jan Garbarek Group, and each of them included an extended feature for the bassist alone, often effectively a spontaneous composition rather than a ‘bass solo’ in strict jazz sense. For “Résumé” Weber has returned to recordings of these solo sequences and reworked them into an album with its own sense of flow. The unique sound of Eberhard’s customised electric bass is heard here mostly in the context of his own keyboard settings and treatments, but also augmented by the saxophones and overtone flute of Jan Garbarek (on three tracks) and by the percussion of Michael DiPasqua.

Laurent Lefèvre : Nous aurions pu le dédier à la musique française, mais je ne suis pas adepte du cloisonnement, j’aime l’ouverture et la musique est pour moi un language universel. J’ai donc choisi d’associer sur un même album des « tubes » comme la Sonate de Saint-Saëns ou le solo de Bourdeau, à des sonates moins connues comme la Sonate de Lubos Sluka, ou celle d’Hindemith. L’idée que les compositeurs s’inspirent les uns des autres au-delà des frontières me plaît.

Max Weber's Vision for Bureaucracy: A Casualty of World War I

Max Weber's Vision for Bureaucracy: A Casualty of World War I By By Prof. Glynn Cochrane
English | EPUB | 2017 (2018 Edition) | 199 Pages | ISBN : 3319622889 | 817.57 KB

This volume examines Max Weber’s pre-World War I thinking about bureaucracy. It suggests that Weber’s vision shares common components with the highly efficient Prussian General Staff military bureaucracy developed by Clausewitz and Helmuth von Moltke. Weber did not believe that Germany’s other major institutions, the Civil Service, industry, or the army could deliver world class performances since he believed that they pursued narrow, selfish interests.
