Subito: suddenly, or immediately. And something else besides – a moment of revelation or transformation, charged with surprise.

Since they started in the early 1970’s, ECM has been giving the world one excellent jazz piano disc after another–significant names include Keith Jarrett, Chick Corea, and Paul Bley, more recently Anat Fort, Bo Stenson, and now Julia Hulsmann. Leading a trio on her ECM debut, THE END OF SUMMER, Hulsman displays a graceful, muted, and melancholy air. In the manner of Stenson and Bley, Hulsmann expresses maximum emotion and mood using the fewest (but well-placed) notes. Unlike the aforementioned gentlemen however, Hulsmann favors almost folk-like, affable, and concise melodies. Her bassist and drummer seem subdued at times, but they’re constantly lending the tunes a sense of forward motion.

Sergey Rachmaninov’s songs rival his piano works in terms of popularity, and are the culmination of a uniquely Russian lyrical tradition. Piano transcription became a fashionable art form in its own right after Liszt’s work in the genre, and Rachmaninov’s elaborate piano parts make his romances ideal for solo performance in works that express effortless sensuality as well as darkness and loss. Unearthed in 2002, Rachmaninov’s own transcription of his remarkable Suite in D minor explores both tragic depths and light-hearted bravura.

The athletic Italian- (and Latin-) language arias of the young Handel, almost unknown to general audiences a few decades ago, have become almost a rite of passage for young sopranos, so it's no surprise to see the highly praised soprano Julia Lezhneva come along with a collection of them for her second solo album. It's an attractive set showing that Lezhneva knows how to play to her strengths. There are just enough of the big showpieces to prove that she can acquit herself fine in them (and indeed she has done the likes of Vivaldi very well in the past), but the majority of the program is devoted to displaying her rather uncanny silvery sound.

Russian soprano Julia Lezhneva was only 20 when she made this recording of scenes and arias from Rossini operas, but she was already a veteran, having recorded Bach's Mass in B minor for Naïve when she was 18. Lezhneva has the solid lower register and timbral fullness that ideally equips her for the Rossini roles that can be taken by either mezzo-soprano or soprano. She is entirely at ease as Cenerentola, a role designated as contralto.

Regardless of her age, this stunning disc confirms her as one of the world's leading musicians… Here it feels as if she is off the leash a bit, allowing herself to broaden out and savour the moment. She channels great feeling (at times the violin fairly weeps) without sounding lachrymose. Muller-Schott matches her for lyricism and virtuosity in the Double Concerto, which he, Fischer and Kreizberg invest with beauty and, increasingly, a sense of urgency. In all, a fabulous disc, which repays playing again and again. Actually, you probably won't be able to help yourself.
