In the age of Argerich, who brings tightrope-walker tension to chamber music, I doubt that anyone plays the Brahms piano trios with the kind of mellow lushness heard here. Katchen's conception of Brahms was large-scaled but smooth, warm without much psychological struggle. Suk was a honey-toned violinist, and although Starker was the modernist among the three, what's notable here is how perfectly in unison he is with Suk (and blissfully in tune). Decca puts the piano in the middle and the string players close up in their own channels left and right. The result is wide-screen and artificial, of course, since it makes the cello sound as loud as the piano. but the sonic effect is quite luscious.

I've saved my remarks about te interpretations for last. The Brahms trios have attracted great collaborations, and I wouldn't place this one above, say, Istomin-Stern-Rose although it runs ahead of the Beaux Art Trio, for sheer beauty of tone if nothing else. The shortcoming here is a tendency toward cautiousness; these are middle-of-the-road readings that don't capture Brahms' deepest passions. He is placed in the sun too often. But the first two trios aren't sturm and drang works. If you want large-scale performances caught in gorgeous sound, here you go.

Lasciare «tracce di luce sul gioco delle onde dei giorni vissuti», più come un «piacere che come un dovere». Sono le parole con cui, all’inizio di un nuovo anno, Ernst Jünger rinnova il proposito di tenere il diario, distillando in un’immagine il senso di questo libro.
Bassa Sassonia, 11 aprile 1945 – 2 dicembre 1948: è il tempo della desolazione, in cui si piangono i propri cari o ci si consuma nell’incertezza della loro sorte. In balia degli umori degli occupanti, con la fame, il peso degli orrori che filtrano dai racconti dei prigionieri liberati dai campi di concentramento e dei nuovi profughi dell’Est che affollano le strade, si soffre l’umiliazione dell’isolamento e dell’unanime condanna internazionale, e si sperimenta una dolorosa fragilità.

Digital + CD only bonus track. Not available on LP.
Less than a year after their out-of-nowhere debut LP, J-Zone and Pablo Martin (aka The Du-Rites) return with their sophomore effort, Greasy Listening. The positive response to their 2016 self-titled offering inspired the NYC funk duo to become winter-spring studio rats and churn out 13 new tracks that both pick up where the initial offering left off and explore some uncharted territory. J-Zone (drums, organ, percussion, turntables) continues to deliver funky rhythms and chunky drum sounds, while Pablo (guitar, bass, synthesizer, electric piano) returns with plenty greasy guitar moves and addictive melodies. But where Greasy Listening differs from its predecessor is in its composition and theme.

Award-winning and much decorated composer Claude Baker here entwines his evocative soundworld with the powerful imagery of two great poets. Recorded in its premiere performance with Marc-André Hamelin as soloist, the Piano Concerto From Noon to Starry Night draws on and amplifies the structures and meanings of five poems by Walt Whitman, expressing the heroism and darkness of war, exuberant celebrations of nature and a wistful remembrance of things past. Aus Schwanengesang is a memorial piece that expands and re-composes the poignant Heine Lieder from Schuberts song cycle with oblique and multi-layered references.

The roles featured on this CD are, in more ways than one, truly great ones; the vocal and interpretational demands on the artist are of an equally high calibre. The fact, as J. M. Fischer writes in the booklet text, that the term 'heroic baritone' has established itself in connection with these roles is recognition of the highly technical challenges – and simultaneously an understatement. The parallels with Wagnerʼs 'heroic tenor roles' can be seen in the truly supreme vocal challenges, and yet the bass-baritone protagonistʼs role in each of these works also demands even greater control of the dramatic character and, therefore, a more complex musical approach. The enduring fascination of these demanding roles can also be sought in their 'tragic awareness'.

In queste pagine, puntuale registrazione dei giorni compresi fra il 3 aprile 1939 e il 24 luglio 1940, la testimonianza di un osservatore d’eccezione come Ernst Jünger si dipana in un suggestivo intreccio di esperienze privatissime e accadimenti storici di importanza epocale: gli ultimi mesi di pace tra i suoi cari nella quiete di Kirchhorst, in cui si intensifica e conclude il lavoro alle Scogliere di marmo; le avvisaglie del conflitto imminente; la chiamata alle armi, le marce incessanti verso ovest per raggiungere il fronte, il sentimento di fraterna solidarietà e a tratti di schietta ammirazione nei confronti di ufficiali e sottoposti; lo sconfinamento in Lussemburgo, Belgio e poi in Francia, su strade disseminate di bottiglie di spumante vuote abbandonate dagli invasori; lo strazio sui volti di prigionieri e profughi; e finalmente, quando «ormai era diventato del tutto chiaro il valore inestimabile della pace», la notizia dell’armistizio

Based in Leipzig with a lengthy career as principal cellist of the Gewandhaus Orchestra, Julius Klengel was a renowned soloist and revered the world over as a great interpreter and pedagogue, whose works are still in use by students today. Composed in true Romantic style, the three Concertinos were written for teaching purposes, the first coming closest to the idea of a mini-concerto but all having virtuoso elements and expressive and lyrical central movements. The Konzertstück, Op. 10 gives the piano equal status with the cello to create a thrilling conclusion to any programme.
