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'.

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.

Katrin Zenz - John Cage: Complete Works for Flute, Vol. 1 (2015)

Katrin Zenz - John Cage: Ryoanji; Two; Three Pieces for Flute Duet; Music for Two (2015)
EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue&Log) ~ 229 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 158 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans included
Genre: Classical, Contemporary, Avant-Garde | Label: Naxos | # 8.559773 | Time: 01:02:50

This first volume of John Cage’s complete works for flute spans a fifty year period, from the Three Pieces for Flute Duet of 1935—deft studies in chromatic writing—to the 1984 Ryoanji, which involves the use of pre-recorded flutes and percussion with resultant diverse and intricate textures. Two is the first of Cage’s important ‘number’ series and is edgily ruminative, while Music for Two, written for any combination of the 17 different instrumental ‘parts without scores’ provided by the composer, is heard in an arrangement described by Katrin Zenz as a ‘new piece for flute and piano’.

EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue&Log) ~ 229 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans included | Time: 01:19:06
Genre: Classical | Label: Hyperion | # CDA 68033

The penultimate volume in Hyperion’s four-part survey of the complete solo piano music of Ernő Dohnányi focuses on music from the period when the composer’s pre-eminent position was being assured. The titles of the largest works here, Ruralia hungarica and the Variations on a Hungarian Folksong, mask in their nationalistic ostentation the skill of a true master of piano composition. Martin Roscoe inhabits the world of Dohnányi’s music like no other—appraisals of the earlier volumes attest to this—and this new recording is a joy.
