The influence of one musical master on others of subsequent generations cannot be overstated. This influence may reach forward a couple of years or a couple of centuries. On its Sono Luminus album, the Jasper String Quartet celebrates this lineage as it appears in some of the string quartet literature, a genre that has inspired great advances and innovation while still remembering its roots. Although Beethoven was already looking forward when he wrote his Quartet Op. 53/3 -- the last of the Razumovsky quartets -- the influence of the past is unmistakable. From the first movement introduction that reminds us of Mozart's Dissonant Quartet to the masterful counterpoint in the fugal finale, Beethoven remembered his roots. In much the same way, American composer Aaron Jay Kernis drew inspiration from Baroque dance forms in the first two movements of his String Quartet No. 2, "Musica Instrumentalis." The final, third movement, however, is an homage to the fugal conclusion of 53/3. The Jasper SQ members deliver striking performances of both quartets. Its sound is lean and focused, offering a clear picture of active inner voices of both quartets. It simultaneously highlights the similarities between the two works while producing a unique tonal quality in each that accentuates the differences.

We look back over ten albums from his career, exploring both his essential works and less well-known compositions.

Herbert Von Karajan and The Grand Masters of Classical Music

30 years after his death, the Austrian Herbert von Karajan (Salzbourg 1908 – Anif 1989) still embodies the musical conductor like no other. In charge of the Berlin Philharmonic for 35 years (1955-1989), Karajan helped to elevate the orchestra to a level of global prestige. Throughout his career, he methodically diversified his repertoire: from Beethoven, Brahms and Bruckner to Verdi, Wagner and Strauss…

Ed Banger, 15 years of freedom

The iconic label of the French electro scene, Ed Banger − masterfully led by Pedro Winter − celebrated its 15-year anniversary in 2018 by having their most iconic titles revisited by a classical orchestra. This is the perfect opportunity to look back on the discography of a label that, whilst having been very popular for a long period of time, has undoubtedly mastered the art of going against the current.
