“In 15 days I wrote 18 of them and today I sent them to Moscow.” Tchai kov sky’s letter, written on the 4 th of May 1893 to his younger brother Modest, reads rather dryly like a report, with no trace of joy or even pride. In Moscow, his compositions were immediately passed on to Pyotr Jurgen son for printing. Elsewhere, he called them pancakes, of which he baked one every day, again downplaying their importance. These under state ments only become clear when one delves into the 18 pieces for piano. For Tchaikovsky modestly failed to mention that he had composed highly vir tuosic piano music and that its performance requires aconsiderable 70 minutes of play ing time. All in all, a record-breaking genesis, for in the two weeks of their creation, there can hardly have been time to rethink, correct or polish. Tchaikovsky must have composed an average of five minutes of music per day, from the initial idea, to its elaboration, to the legible draft for printing. Usually, the notation alone takes an entire working day. Thus, the individual pieces must have been written down quasi al fresco in one go from the first idea to the finished piece.

In their debut album, early music ensemble Fount & Origin present a musical meditation on the Franco-Flemish painter Rogier van der Weyden’s altarpiece image of The Last Judgement at the End of time. This multi-panelled work survives as a monument of fifteenth-century art, relating in vivid detail and colour van der Weyden’s dynamic and terrifying account of the world’s final moments. The nine polyphonic settings recorded here were composed in Europe in the mid- to late-fifteenth century and include works by composers such as Johannes Ockeghem, Johannes Regis, Johannes Martini and Antoine Brumel, with each piece thematically tied to an element or figure in the painting.

When Vilde Frang programs violin concertos in unexpected pairs, such as her 2010 coupling of Jean Sibelius' Violin Concerto in D minor with Sergey Prokofiev's Violin Concerto No. 1 in D major, or her 2012 disc of Carl Nielsen's Violin Concerto matched against Pyotr Il'yich Tchaikovsky's Violin Concerto in D major, the results are quite fascinating. For this 2016 release on Warner Classics, Frang plays the Violin Concerto in D major, Op. 35 of Erich Wolfgang Korngold and the Violin Concerto, Op. 15 of Benjamin Britten, and the works invite comparisons because they are so dramatically different.

A stroke of luck for us: the cycle of "Nine Germ an Ari as" is a real gem. It is perfect in its form down to the last detail, thrifty and yet striking in its use of resources, and a compositional masterpiece. As a rule, a large choir and full orchestra fortissimo makes a much more immediate impression than an aria with only four executants. The present CD is a new production by artistic husband and wife Eilika and Bernhard Wunsch.

Known for his distinctive, slightly distorted sound, jazz guitarist John Scofield is a masterful jazz improviser who has straddled the lines between straight-ahead post-bop, fusion, funk, and soul-jazz. One of the "big three" of late 20th century jazz guitarists (along with Pat Metheny and Bill Frisell), Scofield's influence grew in the '90s and continued into the 21st century. He first emerged in the mid-'70s playing with trumpeter Chet Baker and drummer Billy Cobham before launching his solo career with albums like 1977's East Meets West and 1981's Out Like a Light. He was an integral member of Miles Davis' ensemble in the '80s, and continued to issue his own albums like 1986's Blue Matter and 1998's A Go Go with Medeski, Martin & Wood. Well into his fourth decade as a performer, Scofield continues to garner critical acclaim, including winning Grammy Awards for 2015's Past Present and 2016's Country for Old Men.

The concept album shows the musical visualization of humanity: humanity, humanity. The conceptual center is Pēteris Vasks Cello Concerto No. 2: Klātbūtne (Presence). "Simone, it's love, love, love!" the composer, who accompanied the recording in his hometown of Riga, gave Simone Drescher as a maxim of interpretation and as the only indication of interpretation. The album juxtaposes two friends and composers from the Baltic Sea region who value each other but are characterized by very different musical concepts, styles and compositional methods. Different attitudes to life are manifested in them: Vasks and Nordgren.

Weiss is archaic in his material: he shuns electronic elements and favours natural sound sources (voices, hands, feet) and employs considerable fantasy in the process of deriving sounds from objects which in their original environment have no musical function.

Mean, moody and utterly magnificent, in 1964 the Poets were the best thing to come out of Scotland since Denis Law. Managed and produced by Rolling Stones Svengali Andrew Loog Oldham, between October 1964 and January 1966 the group released a quintet of classic singles, ranging from the aggressive mod pop of Thats The Way Its Got To Be and Baby Don t You Do It to the Top Forty hit Now Were Thru, whose haunting minor key melody, edgy lead vocal, eerie Celtic drone, clanging acoustic twelve-string guitar, keening backing vocals and general air of quiet menace encapsulated the Poets unique, spellbinding appeal. Without the massive hit single that their excellence deserved, the Poets fragmented in early 1966 after the departure of lead singer and chief songwriter George Gallacher…

The work is an extraordinary curiosity; a child of the heady days just before the French Revolution, Tarare is the famous French writer's only opera and one of the Italian composer's rare French scores. First and most strikingly a work of social and political commentary, Tarare is also an entertaining work of theatre. Salieri's music supports these aims admirably and offers a few memorable moments of its own. As an opera form, Tarare defies easy categorization; it may be best described as a comedic satire dressed in the clothes of a sprawling 5 act lyric tragedy, complete with Prologue and a grand divertissement with dance.
