The inauguration of a Villa-Lobos piano music series from Brazilian pianist Marcelo Bratke, who is ideally equipped to bring out the mixture of Brazilian and European elements in the composer's music, is cause for minor celebration. Villa-Lobos' piano music is not terribly common on concert programs, but he wrote a good deal of it, and it presents aspects of his compositional thinking in miniature. Both of the large collections of pieces on this album, Cirandinhas and Cirandas, date from the peak of Villa-Lobos' career in the mid-'20s. The titles of both works refer to types of children's songs, and these are only some of the Villa-Lobos pieces that relate to children. Yet they are not children's pieces. Many of them work out a single idea in a crisp, economical way. What's most interesting here (and beautifully brought out by Bratke) is the contrast between these two works, even though both are made up of short programmatic works in simple forms with mostly diatonic melodies. The Cirandinhas are rigorously simple pieces that seem almost insignificant until you catch on to the small melodic problem being solved in a distinctively Brazilian way, while the Cirandas are more like circumscribed versions of the language in Villa-Lobos' more famous orchestral works. There's a subtlety in these pieces that takes a well-versed pianist to catch, and that's where Bratke is ideal. Recommended for Villa-Lobos fans despite a vague set of booklet notes.

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.

Max Richter, Neo-classical Activist

With the release of his new album Exile, a reflection on exile with the Baltic Sea Orchestra, the iconoclast and prolific pioneer of the neo-classical movement confirms his status as one of the most ideologically committed artists out there. Melding classical and electronic music, physical and emotional worlds, he produces instrumental works of rare evocative power.
