Music by Danish composer Anders Koppel (b 1947) springs from disparate musical influences. He was trained as a clarinetist and pianist, and since his father Herman was a composer and pianist, Anders grew up in a classical environment. But he also spent years in an experimental rock band. His musical language is tonal, with pungent dissonance, and his harmonies take interesting turns. Of the three concertos offered here, the Sinfonia Concertante (2007) for violin, viola, clarinet, bassoon, and orchestra is the most absorbing.

Gerhard completed his unnumbered Symphony "Homanaje a Pedrell" twelve years before his Symphony No 1 (1952-3). Its genesis may have been a long drawn-out affair, the opening movement suggesting that is did not begin as a symphony. Perhaps as early as 1922, the year of Felipe Pedrell’s death, Gerhard began to contemplate this tribute to his revered teacher with whom he studied from 1915 to 1920. The tribute is based on ……

Gerhard was commissioned to write his Fourth Symphony in 1966 by the New York Philharmonic Orchestra and it was first performed in New York on December of that year, conducted by William Steinberg. The following year the score was revised for its continental premiere. In terms of orchestral forces, Gerhard made the most of the commission and scored it for quadruple woodwind, six horns, four trumpets, four trombones, tuba, celesta, piano, two harps, four timpani, four percussion players and full string orchestra. The overall form of the symphony is extremely ….

Gerhard was one of last century's major composers, and his Third Symphony is one of the first and most successful works to incorporate electronic sounds into a live orchestral context. It's very difficult to describe exactly what this music sounds like–it's not tonal, certainly, but it's also very attractive as pure sound, and there are recurring ideas ("gestures" or "structures" may best describe them) that unify the musical argument. To that extent, the music is certainly "difficult," but it would be wrong to assume that it's difficulty is a function of some fiendish complexity designed to mystify the listener…….

Rihm wrote four movements entitled Verwandlung in the first decade of the new millennium. Each one begins differently; No. 1 out of a single tone, No. 2 from pastoral thirds in the violin, No. 3 from a “coup d’archet”, an orchestral trap effect, No. 4 out of brusque orchestral buffets. All carry along an abundance of musical reminiscences and the voice of Mahler is the one heard most distinctly.

As mentioned in his autobiographies, Telemann's encounters with Eastern European gypsy music influenced his own compositions. The young composer must have been enthralled by the wonderful inventiveness of this music, as typified in this recording with the last movements of the Caprice Symphony and the Concerto in e minor for recorder and flute.

All diese Erfahrungen, Niederschläge und Triumphe spiegeln sich in dem Cover zum neuen Album wider – auch das strahlend blaue, hoffnungsvolle Schimmern in den Augen. „Meteor“ heißt das neue Album, das am 23. März als CD, Download und streng limitierte Premium Edition inklusive der DVD „Reim 60 -Das Geburtstagskonzert live in Berlin“ erscheint. Bereits jetzt kann man auf Spotify und Amazon in den ersten Song „Himmel voller Geigen“ hineinhören. Matthias Reim wird sein neues Album am 29. März in „Willkommen bei Carmen Nebel“ im ZDF vorstellen. Einer der Höhepunkte des Albums ist seine Lebensbeichte, nämlich der Song „Verdammt nochmal gelebt“. Da zieht Matthias Reim die Bilanz seiner intensiv gelebten 60 Jahre – es ist gewissermaßen sein persönliches „My way“: „Ich will sagen können: Ich habe gelacht,' geweint, geliebt - ich will sagen können: Ich hab alles versucht … ich will sagen können: Ich hab verdammt noch mal gelebt!“

Matthias Schorn, 31 year old Principal clarinettist of the Vienna Philharmonic, and the Austrian Minetti Quartett did not only record a special and popular coupling of Mozart’s and Brahms’ often played clarinet quintets, but there is also a third piece, „Invention“ by the Austrian composer Balduin Sulzer (*1932), which is also dedicated to the artists – a World Premiere.

The 6th volume of Matthias Goerne's ongoing survey of Schubert lieder focuses on Schubert's monumental Schwanengesang. Matthias Goerne continues a Schubert survey that has already established him as one of the most fantastically gifted exponents of the song repertoire; Goerne does not ‘interpret’ Schubert, he lives each lied from the inside and invites the listener to share this poetic and musical intimacy without ever falling into the trap of overstatement. This sixth volume in the series also features an unforgettable performance of Schubert’s last piano sonata by one of the baritone’s favourite partners, Christoph Eschenbach.

Mit jublilierenden Mönchschören und kräftigen Beats hat sich Matthias Reim mit seinem Song "Hallelujah!" wieder zurückgemeldet. Vorbei das "Tal der Schulden", vorbei die gescheiterte Beziehung mit Michelle – für Matthias gibt es jetzt ein neues Morgenrot. In den 15 Liedern dieser CD lässt Reim einen tiefen Blick in seine Seele zu, fast kann man die Songs als autobiografische "Bekenntnisse eine Mannes, der zwischen Himmel und Hölle schwebt" bezeichnen.
