Rezension in englischer Sprache verfügbar

A Thousand Thoughts, whose title comes from the traditional Swedish melody that opens the program, is not a release of new material but a compilation of prior Kronos Quartet performances that draw on international materials. They go back as far as 1989, but the majority come from after 2000, when this aspect of the group's repertoire has become more important. As such, your reaction to them may well depend on whether you think this kind of experiment represents a laudable curiosity or a drive-by approach to world music. Even the detractors, though, would do well to note the following positives. The Kronos Quartet have been highly influential in this regard, as they have in so many others, and it's due to their efforts that it's commonplace nowadays to hear tango music (as you do here) or something similar in a string quartet recital. The Kronos do not simply rely on standards that fit the quartet medium but often feature representatives of the ethnic traditions involved, pushing themselves a bit to enter into exotic sound worlds. (Especially successful in this regard is the concluding version of "Danny Boy," sung by the late Texas country singer and yodeler Don Walser, the so-called Pavarotti of the Plains; this version was available on one of Walser's albums, but is not exactly a common item.) The sound engineering associated with the Kronos has always been high-class, and this collection of live and studio tracks recorded over almost a 25-year period holds together as a unit quite well. Likewise, the quartet itself has maintained a consistent sound over the several changes in personnel represented here. This has the potential to serve as a good sampler for those interested in the ethnomusicological side of contemporary chamber music. ~ James Manheim

Danny Elfman in 10 Alben

Danny Elfman hat in den letzten vierzig Jahren seinen ganz persönlichen bunt gefiederten Stil zwischen märchenhaftem, durchgeknalltem, grandiosem Humor und achtsamer Geschmeidigkeit etabliert, der sich aus den eklektischsten Hollywood-Produktionen (von Tim Burton oder Gus Van Sant) herauskristallisiert. Wir blicken auf zehn unvergessliche Alben seiner Diskographie.

Zubin Mehta - Der Marathon-Mann

Zubin Mehta geht auf Abschiedstournee mit dem Israel Philharmonic Orchestra und wird mit einer großen CD-Box gewürdigt.

British Blues Boom: Chronik einer Revolution

Die Tatsache, dass Joe Bonamassa ein Jahr nach seinem Blue & Lonesome der Rolling Stones mit British Blues Explosion wiederkehrt, bedeutet, dass der British Blues Boom mehr als nur ein kurzlebiger Trend war… Das Interesse einer jungen Generation an den großen amerikanischen Blues-Ikonen, die in ihrem Land unbekannt waren, erschöpfte sich nicht nach einer gewissen Zeit, sondern löste eine wahre Revolution aus, bei der Eric Clapton, Jeff Beck und Jimmy Page die drei größten Agitatoren waren. Jenseits des Ärmelkanals wurden sie gar als die „Heilige Dreifaltigkeit“ der Geschichte des Rock bzw. der Gitarre gefeiert. Zwar waren sie bei weitem nicht die einzigen Musiker, die damit zu tun hatten. Doch aufgrund ihrer jeweiligen Laufbahn entdeckte man, dass der Blues nicht etwa eine Musik mit abgelaufenem Haltbarkeitsdatum war, sondern ein Tor zu anderen musikalischen Dimensionen mit neuen Wegen und Möglichkeiten.
