This release captures part of a concert given at New York's Carnegie Hall in January 2009; the concert was sponsored by the Hungarian Cultural Center in New York. Other pieces from the concert, featuring the same composers, are available elsewhere. But the program included here is nicely balanced between the two composers, György Ligeti and György Kurtág. Born within a few years of each other in the 1920s, they grew up in Bartók's long shadow but went in different directions, and their relationship is one of those that shows how closely opposites can be related. Ligeti's structures, whether in the instrumental Melodien (1971) with their tone clusters or the Cello Concerto (1966) with its drones, feature fragments that emerge from basically static backgrounds, generating an interplay of levels and planes that develop as a work or movement proceeds. Kurtág's music, by contrast, is spiky and abrupt. His Messages of the Late R.V. Troussova, Op. 17, is a collection of brief, often sardonic songs (in Russian) that push the voice into unfamiliar territory. The second set of Kurtág songs, Four Poems by Anna Akhmatova, Op. 41, was composed for the concert involved. Different as the styles of the two composers may be, and for all the influence they show from the western European avant-garde, they both retain a connection with the national and regional essence exemplified by Bartók. Hungary's UMZE Ensemble under Peter Eötvös captures this connection with a rhythmic drive and a grasp of overarching structure that is rewarded by sustained applause at the end. Recommended as something of a landmark for anyone interested in contemporary music of Eastern Europe.

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.

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.
