The musical style of Philip Glass (b. 1937) became widely recognizable by the 1990s, if not earlier. Many lesser composers imitated him (and still imitate him) and he has obviously become one of the more important figures in late twentieth-century and early twenty-first-century music. He has more than a few detractors, though, who hear his music as unbearably repetitive and without sufficient development. The three works on this CD, all from the 1980s, reflect Glass' mature minimalist style, and, like much of his work, will fare better with certain listeners on first hearing than on subsequent ones. The Violin Concerto was premiered by Paul Zukofsky in April, 1987, at a time when the composer was enjoying acclaim from the success of Satyagraha and Akhnaten, which both appeared earlier in the decade. The Concerto is a dramatic, intense work whose ever-active rhythms impart much tension and passion. That's hardly news in describing so many Glass works, but here it seems especially so. The slow second movement (which isn't so slow, actually, thanks to the busy rhythms) is haunting and atmospheric, and the finale contains probably the most compelling music in the work. At nine minutes and twenty seconds, it is the longest movement and sounds the most challenging to the soloist. The driving yet gossamer motif that dominates the finale is unforgettable, and its repetition does not become too much of a good thing, the composer investing the music with tension and varying the material and orchestration quite effectively. The performance by the young Australian violinist Adele Anthony is splendid, totally convincing. Her tone and technique are fully up to the task, and her interpretive skills are impressive. Yukuo Yuasa and his Ulster players abet her with a fine sense for Glass' idiom. I'm sure the composer will like this recording. As for the other items here, the Prelude and Dance from Akhnaten are the more substantial. Maestro Yuasa seems to have a fine grasp on Glass' style, as textures blend nicely and rhythms sound with elasticity and springiness, and the whole of the music takes on an atmosphere perfectly appropriate to the ancient imagery associated with the opera from which it was taken. Company, from 1982, written to accompany an adaptation of Samuel Beckett's work of the same name, is a piece consisting of four short sections. Each features music with much rhythmic and atmospheric interest. As in the Akhnaten excerpts, the Ulster players acquit themselves admirably here, and Yuasa seems again to have a firm grasp of Glass' style. Naxos provides excellent sound and informative notes, which include short biographies of Ms. Anthony and Maestro Yuasa.

Weihnachten in 15 Alben

Sie haben keinen besonders guten Ruf. Oft werden sie unter Musikkritikern verpönt und doch werden sie von aller Welt gehört. Diese besondere Spezies der Weihnachtsalben sprießt jedes Jahr von den bekanntesten und renommiertesten Künstlern aus dem Boden. Die ersten Pop-Weihnachtstlieder, die keinen kirchlichen Bezug mehr aufwiesen, entstanden um 1934 aus Kinderliedern, wie etwa Santa Claus Is Coming to Town von Fred Coots und Haven Gillespie, das 1935 von Tommy Dorsey und seinem Orchester aufgezeichnet wurde. Mit den Croonern kamen die ersten LPs auf, die eine Sammlung an mehreren Songs für die Festtage vereinten. Hier ist eine Auswahl an Alben, die wir mit größter Sorgfalt für Sie auserlesen haben und die Ihnen die Weihnachtszeit in diesem Jahr ganz besonders schön machen soll...

Giovanni Antonini & Il Giardino Armonico - eine neue Form der Freiheit

Giovanni Antonini, Gründungsmitglied und Leiter des 1985 entstandenen Ensembles Il Giardino Armonico, zu dem unter anderen Luca Pianco gehört, hat mit der Gesamtaufnahme aller 107 Sinfonien von Joseph Haydn ein monumentales Projekt in Angriff genommen. Vor kurzem ist der 8. Band erschienen. Das Projekt soll 2032, zum 300. Geburtstages des Vaters der Sinfonie, abgeschlossen sein. Ein Rückblick auf den Werdegang des beherzten Mailänder Dirigenten.

Jordi Savall – Musik, Leben, Tonaufnahmen

Es regnete in Strömen in jener Oktobernacht im französischen Bugey, was zu dieser Jahreszeit dort häufig vorkommt. Es war Mitternacht. Wir waren ungefähr fünfzig Musikliebhaber, die beim Festival d’Ambronay schweigend in der Feuchtigkeit und in der Kälte warteten. Dann erschien auf einmal Jordi Savall, lautlos, in einen weißen, nassen Trenchcoat gehüllt, wie Humphrey Bogart in Casablanca, einen Kasten in Form eines menschliche Körpers an sich gedrückt. Mit langsamen Bewegungen holte er, nein, kein Maschinengewehr, sondern eine Viola da Gamba hervor, die er mit größter Umsicht behandelte, und begann, sie zu stimmen. Dann geschah im Publikum das Wunder.
