Lys means light in violinist Mari Samuelsen's native Norwegian language, and the pieces on this album, with Samuelsen accompanied by the contemporary music orchestra Scoring Berlin and by smaller groupings drawn from that, make reference to the concept of light in some way. It's the kind of album that sticks mostly within a slow-to-moderate tempo range and a meditative mood; when the zippier Midi of Anna Meredith appears at the end, it seems to come out of nowhere. All of the music is by female composers or artists; these include Hildegard of Bingen and Beyoncé, but most are composers aiming at the middle-of-the-road Classic FM listenership and its cousins in other countries. Samuelsen's violin, usually providing a kind of wash layer, is not virtuosic, but its sound has to be carefully controlled so as not to disturb the mood. One's response to the album may depend on one's preferences regarding this genre, but note that Samuelsen works more variety than usual into this fixed framework. Beyoncé's Halo is one example. Another is the inclusion of a light electronic layer in some of the pieces, and a third is the use of some extended violin techniques; hear the quite distinctive pizzicatos in the second of the two excerpts from Caroline Shaw's Plan & Elevation. Deutsche Grammophon's mastering engineers convincingly tie together sound from several sources in various countries, and in general, this is a drive-time classical album that will stretch the ears a bit.

The Song of the Earth: The World of Gustav Mahler

What could have prompted Gustav Mahler to compose a work as unclassifiable as this one? Written between 1907 and 1908, a pivotal period in Mahler's life, The Song of the Earth occupies a special place within his oeuvre. It combines the “fin de siècle” spirit with the fascination for the exotic that was spreading amongst his peers at the time. Vienna was in turmoil when this music was composed, and the piece oscillates between the notions of farewell and new beginnings. With a lot of layers to peel back, The Song of the Earth definitely merits a closer look.

Marc Ribot, the Anti-guitar Hero

For over thirty-five years, Marc Ribot’s name has been on the covers of albums by Tom Waits, Alain Bashung, Diana Krall, John Zorn, Robert Plant, Caetano Veloso and numerous other artists, and when he's not busy lending his unique guitar to others, the New Yorker takes pleasure, under his own name, in breaking down and re-building rock, jazz, funk, Cuban music and anything his fingers touch.
