The bond between the musicians becomes especially evident when they explo-re their shared musical language which seam-lessly blends composed and improvised ma-terial. On his new album, NOCTURNES, Ploug presents new original compositions and fresh interpretations of inspiring source material by Danish composers Bent Sorensen and Carl Nielsen.

Do we need to know, before hearing a work, whether it was composed by a man or a woman? Does this information change the way we listen? Does it influence our judgment?With the works selected for this recording, we enter the realm of so-called ‘programme music’.Composers proclaim therein their ability to depict, through purely aural means, a non-musical subject.
A poem, a narrative, a painting, a scene from a play or even a sculpture could be used as the basis for the score of a symphonic poem.

Norway's inventive Rock mavericks LEPROUS return with their seventh studio album, "Aphelion". Although unmistakably the work of the same band that made "Pitfalls" in 2019, "Aphelion" immediately stands out as a radical statement: Veering from some of the most intense material of their career to some of the most delicate music in the LEPROUS career, "Aphelion" is an album of beautifully crafted and meticulously arranged mini-masterworks. Recorded at three different studios (Ghost Ward / Sweden, Ocean Sound Recordings / Norway and and Cederberg Studios / Norway), mixed by Adam Noble (Placebo, Biffy Clyro, Nothing But Thieves) and mastered by Robin Schmidt (The 1975, Placebo, The Gaslight Anthem, etc.), "Aphelion" is available from InsideOutMusic as limited Mediabook CD with two bonus tracks, as Standard Jewelcase CD and as Gatefold 2LP on 180gr. vinyl with two bonus tracks and the entire album on CD as bonus.

Obwohl beide Meister denselben Text verwenden, unterscheiden sich die Vertonungen sowohl in ihrer Art als auch in ihrer Form erheblich. Während Haydns Melodien den Inhalt mit einem Augenzwinkern und viel Feinsinnigkeit präsentieren, lädt Holzers Stück vor Lebensfreude und Musikalität sprühend zum Mittanzen ein. Joseph Haydns Lieder umfassen ein breites musikalisches Spektrum und sind für die Entwicklung der Gattung von unschätzbarem Wert: Sie stellen einen entscheidenden Beitrag zur Weiterentwicklung des Wiener Liedes bis hin zu Franz Schubert dar. Wie bei vielen Wiener Charakteristika vermischen sich verschiedenste Stilmittel: volkstümliche Elemente, Merkmale des Singspielliedes und des norddeutschen Liedes werden unter dem zusätzlichen Einfluss der italienischen Arie zu einer völlig neuen Musikgattung geformt. Die Verbindung zum neunzehnten Jahrhundert wird durch französische Lieder hergestellt, die erstmals 1810 von dem italienischen Gitarrenvirtuosen Mauro Giuliani in Wien ausgegeben wurden. Für dieses Projekt wurde ein historisches Streichinstrument gewählt, um ein noch größeres Gefühl der Intimität zu erzeugen.

This is the third and final instalment of the Well-Tempered Consort series (5 Diapasons, Gramophone Editor’s Choice, BBC Music Magazine Chamber Choice). In this programme devised by its director Laurence Dreyfus, the viol consort Phantasm continues to shine new light on the fugues from Bach’s Well-Tempered Clavier interspersed with some of the composer’s most harmonically adventurous experiments from the Clavierübung III. This polyphonic feast also includes two works from the Inventions and Sinfonias as well as the Fantasia in G major BWV 572, or Pièce d’orgue as it is sometimes called, which boasts an extraordinary closing pedal point. A fitting end to a remarkable journey!

Dong Hyek Lim arrived on the scene at just 18 years old ‘in a blaze of pianistic glory’ (Gramophone) with a debut album championed by his mentor Martha Argerich. The South Korean virtuoso went on to take third prize in the 15th International Chopin Piano Competition. Ten years later, following studies with Emmanuel Ax at the Juilliard School in New York, his artistry has matured and deepened for this long-awaited recital of the 24 Preludes and other works by Chopin – a composer who remains especially close to his heart.

Harmony and tension, softness and strength - rarely are contrasts as noticeable and close as in a couple. In the active dialogue of the musical duo, in the constant give and take, listening and communicating, demanding and supporting, the two ECHO jazz award winners Nils Wülker and Arne Jansen now invite us to their first joint duo album. The ten tracks on "Closer" are wonderfully different and pleasantly surprising, telling exciting stories with new original compositions, interpretations from the repertoire of the two leaders and covers of some of their favorite pop and rock songs, from Nine Inch Nails to Ry X to The Blue Nile. With every note, they win over the listeners, accompanying them on a journey through new and exciting soundscapes like good friends. Sometimes empathetic and intimate, then again cinematic and atmospherically dense, from the ultimate reduction in a duet to an almost orchestral sound, the two exceptional musicians and close friends explore what they have in common and live out their peculiarities in the music on "Closer". It doesn't get any closer than that.

Jede der Kompositionen bleibt stringent und farbenreich.

How to express emotion through music from which words are absent? This album attempts to give an answer to this question. Through works by Italian composers from the late 16th and early 17th centuries, the two members of Seicento Stravagante, David Brutti and Nicola Lamon, demonstrate the extravagant styles of early baroque music. During the decades surrounding 1600, the dominance of the human voice and of texts came to be replaced by the unfettered imagination of the composer/instrumentalists that allowed instruments to ‘speak’ on their own, and not only support a sung text.

Smethergell's Charming Overtures Vol. 1 - von den Komponisten des britischen Königreichs, die als Zeitgenossen von Joseph Haydn bezeichnet werden können, sind heute fast alle weitgehend vergessen. Doch schon vor Haydns Ankunft im Jahr 1790 blühte nicht nur das Studium seiner Musik, sondern vor allem waren Orchesterkonzerte an verschiedenen Orten längst etabliert. Über William Smethergell war lange Zeit fast nichts bekannt.
