Georgian folk music possesses what is the oldest tradition of polyphonic music in the world, predating the introduction of Christianity. Scales used in traditional Georgian music have, like most European scales, octaves divided into seven tones (eight including the octave), but the spacing of the tones is different. As with most traditional systems of tuning, traditional Georgian folk music uses a just perfect fifth. Between the unison and the fifth, however, come three evenly-spaced notes, producing a compressed (compared to most European music) major second, a neutral third, and a stretched perfect fourth. …

Label: deutsche harmonia mundi

The album by Kei Koito features famous and well known baroque and pre-baroque music by composers such as Buxtehude, Praetorius, Scheidt, Scheidemann, and others The tracklisting is based on alteration: after an organ piece, the corresponding choral work is sung by the renowned Italian ensemble Il Canto Di Orfeo. The program of this album has been recorded in the famous “Stephanskirche” in Tangermünde, Germany. The Baroque organ of 1624 by Hans Scherer the Younger and his brother Fritz Scherer is especially noteworthy. Its design, consisting of a main organ, a Rückpositiv and bass pipes, is a clear example of the Scherers' construction technique known as the "Hamburg Prospekt". In 1994 it was restored. The organ, which had been altered several times in its history, was restored to its original acoustic pattern, which was possible as 50% of the original pipes were still in place. The instrument is tuned in a mid-tone. The instrument is famous among organ player all.

Today Heinrich Schütz (1585–1672) is considered the most important and influential German composer of the early baroque era. In his 55 years of service as chapel master to the court of Saxony in Dresden, he taught not only the choirboys in his chapel but music students sent to him from other German courts. His pupils were highly sought after as (court) chapel masters, orchestra leaders or church music directors throughout northern Europe.

Davide Bandieri - Hindemith: Complete Chamber Music for Clarinet (2017)

Davide Bandieri - Hindemith: Complete Chamber Music for Clarinet (2017)

Label: Brilliant Classics

For this release, clarinettist Davide Bandieri is joined by a superlative group of musicians, all determined to shine a light on some of Hindemith’s most sensitively scored chamber music. As a keen amateur clarinettist himself, Hindemith composed for the instrument throughout his life. This repertoire therefore takes us on a journey right from his early works in the 1920s – when the composer was influenced by the ailing conservative composer Arnold Mendelssohn – to the mid 1950s, when his music had been strongly shaped by Schoenberg’s ideas about tonality. Characteristically for Hindemith, much of his clarinet repertoire is Hausmusik – written for a domestic setting rather than public performance. A sense of intimacy can therefore be heard alongside the composer’s typical wit. The Musikalisches Blumengärtlein is one of Hindemith’s many parody pieces, with tongue-in-cheek comic effects in its unusual instrumentation and original movement names like the punning ‘Canon (for shooting)’.
