This is Volume 4 in Barry Douglas’s monumental project to record the complete works for solo piano by Johannes Brahms. Each volume has been released to critical acclaim, the first one, in 2012, being seen by BBC Music as ‘a triumph of Brahmsian thought, with playing that gets right to the heart of the composer’. Once again, the album is presented as a stand-alone recital, prominently featuring the C major Sonata, which was Brahms’s first published work. The influence on Brahms of his early romantic predecessors Beethoven and Schubert is obvious here, not only in the virtuoso demands on the performer but also in the opening, which recalls both Beethoven’s ‘Hammerklavier’ Sonata, Op. 106 and Schubert’s ‘Wanderer’ Fantasy.

More and more music lovers are discovering the unique sound of a vinyl record. Stockfisch thought about whether it is possible just to make the sound creation factors of a vinyl record audible. A pressed record however, has many artifacts arising from the vinyl pressing i.e. distortion, rumble, groove noise, vertical and lateral aberrations, clicks, etc. and other artifacts that are detrimental to a good sound. Stockfisch calls their new production method 'DMM-CD'.

Musicologist Adrian Thomas considered Grazyna Bacewiczs string quartets unrivalled in 20th-century Polish music and one of the centurys most significant contributions to the genre. Her folk-music infused First Quartet dates from student days at the Paris Conservatoire, while exceptional polyphonic skill, intense emotion and playful, high spirits characterize the Third Quartet. Both the Sixth and Seventh Quartets unite tradition with a strikingly effective and highly personal exploration of progressive contemporary techniques. As Lutoslawski observed, in the rapidly changing artistic currents of the times, it was [Bacewiczs] music which helped create that atmosphere.

This recording gathers several important examples of the less familiar Edvard Grieg as composer of songs with orchestra. Soprano Camilla Tilling plays a leading part in this fifth and final volume of Audite’s complete recording of Grieg’s orchestral works: although Grieg drew on his own songs with orchestra or piano for the 'Six Orchestral Songs', this set forms an independent, elegiacally-hued cycle reflecting the core of Grieg’s personality.

Label :Motéma Music LLC | Year Of Release :2015

Electro-Acoustic keyboard wizard Marc Cary (#1 Rising Keyboardist in DownBeat’s 2014 Critics Poll) celebrates his 20th anniversary as a recording artist, with "Rhodes Ahead Vol. 2" (March 17, 2015), a powerhouse follow-up to his seminal 1999 release "Rhodes Ahead Vol. 1".
Keeping the original heavyweight trio of Cary, Terreon Gully and Tarus Mateen intact, Cary’s fierce new project puts the iconic Fender Rhodes sound front and center, fusing drum n’ bass, electronic music, jazz and funk influences, creating yet another visionary project to follow up his triumphant 2013 releases "For The Love of Abbey" (a searing solo piano opus celebrating Abbey Lincoln) and Marc Cary Focus Trio’s "Four Directions" (TSF France, Album of the Year). As the original Rhodes Ahead introduced Marc Cary as one of this generation's greatest innovators, heralding the electro-acoustic jazz sound that became prevalent in the 2000’s, "Rhodes Ahead Vol. 2" is a testament to Marc’s incredible vision, versatility and creativity.
