Formed by original Steel Pulse member Mykaell S. Riley (aka Michael Riley), the Reggae Philharmonic was a noble and bizarre experiment that crossed reggae rhythms with orchestral themes, despite the fact that Riley can neither read nor write music. The idea was to employ the most talented black classical musicians, with Riley adding vocals on top of these arrangements to surprisingly good effect.

Beheaded - Only Death Can Save You (2019)
Malta | MP3 CBR 320 Kbps | 87 MB
Brutal Death Metal | Label : Agonia Records

Sixth studio album from Malta's death metal outfit & biggest metal export, Beheaded. Forged from the darkest depths, "Only Death Can Save You" breathes violence and marches fearlessly down its death metal path. Summoning the visceral classic and the caustic edge of later death metal, the new punishing album spreads its aural horror with razor sharp precision. To explain the title & concept of the new album, the band commented: "With 'Only Death Can Save You' our intent was to artistically delve into the deepest, darkest corners of the human psyche and follow a creative path into the obscure frame of mind a person has when facing death, which, is the ultimate most terrifying experience and yet the only ‘salvation’ from life. This is a concept reflected in the lyrics and also captured in the album’s artwork".

Stefano Scodanibbio (1956-2012) was a musician active on many fronts. As an innovative virtuoso bassist and a pioneer of extended technique for his instrument he collaborated with composers including Luigi Nono, Iannis Xenakis, John Cage, Brian Ferneyhough and Terry Riley, inspiring each of them to new works. With Riley, with Markus Stockhausen and with others, he gave concerts of improvised music. He founded the Rassegna di Nuova Musica Festival in Macerata, his Italian hometown, and directed it for more than 30 years. He taught master classes from Darmstadt to Stanford. And as a composer his works for strings, for contrabass in particular were heard around the world: they were challenging pieces which – as Irvine Arditi wryly notes – avoided “traditional avant-garde trends”.

Some jazz feels like it could go anywhere at any moment, latitude being the music's most enviable quality. Jane Ira Bloom's "Always Hope" is certainly distinguished by such a feel. Opening The Red Quartets with a swirl of sound from Fred Hersch's piano, Mark Dresser's bass, and Bobby Previte's drums, the soprano saxophonist creates nothing but liberty. As Hersch's foot pedal keeps his chords in the air, the leader's horn lines glide through them. Previte's cymbals match the pianist's pulse and sundry thoughts present themselves. "That piece basically introduces you to what we're about," explains Bloom, "which is adventure. I'm a bit of a sound searcher, and 'Always Hope' encapsulates that - if anything, it's a four-and-a-half-minute journey. My interests are in strong melodic motion and deep rhythm.

A contemporary of Joseph Haydn, Franz Beck (1734-1809) has long been overshadowed by the Austrian master, but some similarities are remarkable. Both toiled for long periods away from the centers of musical activity. Both used wind instruments in highly original ways. Both employed striking harmonic progressions and increasingly independent part writing. Had Beck continued to compose symphonies past the 1760's, our opinion might be quite different today.

Mikhail Pletnev was born in Archangelsk, which is located in the north of Russia on the coast of the White Sea. By the time Pletnev began piano studies at age seven, with pianist Julia Shaskina, his family had moved to the central Russian City of Kazan in Tatarstan. Pletnev demonstrated promise and was enrolled at age 13 in Evgeny Timakin's piano preparatory class at the Moscow Central Music School. At 14, Pletnev earned the Grand Prix awarded by the International Jeunesses Musicales in Paris, and at 15 he transferred into master classes headed by Yakov Flier at the Moscow Conservatory. /quote]

Genre: Classical | Label: Hyperion | # CDA67980

Even though Angela Hewitt's repertoire is quite extensive and diverse, encompassing the Baroque, Classical, Romantic, and modern eras, her true specialty is the music of J.S. Bach, which she has recorded almost exclusively for Hyperion since the 1980s. With this recording of The Art of Fugue, Hewitt completes her long-running series of piano renditions of the solo keyboard works, and while not everyone is convinced that Bach composed this study of fugal techniques for the keyboard, Hewitt's performance is credible and satisfying. She controls the often unwieldy counterpoint by regarding the lines as if they were vocal parts, and her phrases are shaped by natural breathing points, as well as the different emotional qualities she brings to each fugue and canon. The Art of Fugue can be daunting for both performer and listener because its persistent tonality of D minor and monothematic material can be quite tedious in the wrong hands.

Erroll Louis Garner (1923-1977) was an American jazz pianist and composer known for his swing playing and ballads. His best-known composition, the ballad "Misty", has become a jazz standard. Scott Yanow of Allmusic calls him "one of the most distinctive of all pianists" and a "brilliant virtuoso".

The second album by Petra Magoni (vocal) and Ferruccio Spinetti (bass) is another piece of an original project, unique in many respects in Italian music. The voice sharp, ironic, bad, sweet Magoni moves back to the great songs of pop music: Come Together, Never Can Say Goodbye, but also original compositions like the beautiful Io Sono Metà or Le Due Corde Vocali in which joins, for the first time, the voice of Ferruccio Spinetti. Two voices to tell a story, a dialogue that sums up well what do you look for in Musica Nuda 2: the sharp reduction to the bare essentials across with ironic depth.

This is one of the most inspirational CD's I have ever listened to. Not only is the playing perfect, the choice in music for the CD is perfect. It provides the listener with several different styles, and yet many similar styles. The group plays the traditional Russian pieces with flair and great musicianship, such as the Stravinsky and the Shostakovich.
