One of the best things about recording all of Bach's cantatas is the nearly infinite number of discs that can be drawn from them. For example, now that Ton Koopman has completed his series of recordings of the extant cantatas, his performances can be re-grouped in various ways. This disc takes four Ascension Day cantatas recorded by Koopman with his Amsterdam Baroque Orchestra & Choir in 1998, 2001, and 2002 and joins them together in a single program. As listeners familiar with Koopman's Bach recordings know, his performances are a unique combination of sublime spirituality, expressive musicality, and a deep strain of rampant individuality. Take as an example the opening work here, Lobet Gott in seinen Reichen, BWV 11. From its grandly monumental opening chorus through its anguished alto aria that later formed the basis of the Agnus Dei from the B minor Mass and its graceful soprano aria delightfully accompanied by solo flute, oboe, and cello to the expansive and exciting concluding chorus with trumpets and drums, Koopman strikes the right balance between the celestial, the mundane, and the wholly unique. And so it is for the other three works here. Recorded in crisp, vivid sound, these may or may not be listeners' idea of great Bach -- those looking for massive performances saturated with sentimentality need not apply -- but for listeners looking for a taste of Koopman's way with Bach, this disc will be just the ticket.

And so it is for the other three works here. Recorded in crisp, vivid sound, these may or may not be listeners' idea of great Bach -- those looking for massive performances saturated with sentimentality need not apply -- but for listeners looking for a taste of Koopman's way with Bach, this disc will be just the ticket.

Scriabin's Flamboyant Raptures

Somewhat overshadowed today by his compatriots Rimsky-Korsakov, Stravinsky and Rachmaninov, Alexander Scriabin is nonetheless a key figure in Russian music. At the beginning of the 20th century, the composer and virtuoso pianist broke away from the Romantic legacy to offer a unique and innovative musical language which no one would follow. His work, deeply influenced by mystical philosophy and synaesthesia, would undergo a dazzling evolution in barely two decades, interrupted by his premature death at the age of 43.

Marc Ribot, the Anti-guitar Hero

For over thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.

Nils Frahm, an Atypical Piano Master

Hailed by critics of classical music as well as amateurs of the electronic genre, Nils Frahm’s talent has brought harmony between the two worlds for the last ten years. Whether he plays on a church organ or a synthesiser fitted with effect pedals, the German pianist is always looking forward, and that’s what makes him so appealing.
