Wilhelm Backhaus – Beethoven The Piano Sonatas (2020)
FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/96 kHz | Time – 08:16:50 minutes | 9,8 GB | Genre: Classical
Studio Master, Official Digital Download | Front Cover | © Decca Music Group Ltd.

Backhaus was one of the great exponents of the Classical and Romantic repertory and his performances had an integrity that eschewed any unnecessary display and flamboyance; his concern was to give the most direct interpretation of what the composer wishes and the structure and architecture of his chosen repertory was paramount. Backhaus recorded extensively for Decca throughout the 1950s and 1960s and recorded works by Beethoven, Brahms, Haydn, Mendelssohn, Mozart, and Schumann. His complete cycle of Beethoven Sonatas occupied him throughout the 1950s and 1960s and is regarded by many as his greatest achievement, and the cycle is justly recognized as one of the great recorded cycles. It has not been available on CD for some years now and is reissued in response to repeated requests to make it available again.

After having recorded Beethoven’s entire sonata catalogue in mono between 1950 and 1953, Wilhelm Backhaus, at DECCA’s request, delivered a second version of this album, between 1958 and 1969, this time in stereo and re-released on Qobuz in Hi-Res. But Backhaus would not live to see the recording of Sonata n°29 “Hammerklavier”, a great shame as he was an outstanding interpreter of this piece – Beethoven (and Brahms) was his favourite composer.

According to those who saw his live performances, it was in public that Backhaus’s artistic spontaneity shined. The richness and power of his performances are clear in the rare live recordings available. Indeed, his studio recordings presented a much more restricted and controlled musician, less taken by Beethoven’s musical momentum, which he performed so spectacularly. Backhaus’s discography remains to this day a great testament and an ode to Beethoven’s music.

Yuko Mabuchi plays Miles Davis took the jazz world by storm when it was initially released, winning NativeDSD’s coveted Jazz Album of the Year, earning a special commendation from the City of Los Angeles, and pleasing audiences and critics alike. Advances in SonoruS Holographic Imaging technology enabled engineers Steve Hoffman, Bob Attiyeh and Arian Jansen to remaster a fresh version of this album in honor of Yarlung’s 15th Anniversary.

Bob Levi, chairman of LAOCAS, wrote of the original “Oh my! Mabuchi, Breton, Atkins and JJ Kirkpatrick, the wicked internationally acclaimed trumpet player. Yuko Mabuchi Plays Miles Davis is much better than superb. It is historic! I listened to this concert performance over and over. It is compelling. It is lively. It is at times explosive. It is always original and filled with intensely new musical ideas from many old Miles favorites. Yuko Mabuchi plays so powerfully and rhythmically, like she owns this music, feels this music, believes this music. I could go cut by cut, but you understand if you like extraordinary jazz. This is the real deal.”

The society’s new president Mike Wechsberg was so happy with the new 15th Anniversary version that he asked for the album to be branded with the Society logo. Levi continues “This is Attiyeh’s best jazz recording effort to date. Van Gelder would have approved. The warmth and weight of the instruments are so real, so right. Yuko Mabuchi Plays Miles Davis has become an audiophile jazz lover’s reference. It is audiophile gold.”

Here is a program of unapologetically exhibitionist works for solo piano, performed by an artist who has absolutely no reason to be apologetic for his virtuosic showmanship. In reviewing repertoire Yevgeny Sudbin has previously recorded, I’ve not been overwhelmed by this not-so-young-anymore (he’s 33 now) Russian keyboard dynamo. Technically, he’s brilliant, but then so is just about every other young pianist fresh from the conservatory or the competition circuit. What bothered me about Sudbin’s Chopin recital, reviewed in 35:5, was a certain coldness or aloofness in his playing.

As exemplary showpieces, all of the works on this disc strike me as being ideally suited to Sudbin’s technical prowess and emotional temperament. Liszt’s Funérailles is the seventh and probably most famous number in the composer’s cycle of 10 pieces, titled Harmonies poétiques et religieuses . Liszt denied the claim that he’d written the piece as a tribute to Chopin, insisting that it was intended to commemorate friends who had died in the 1848 Hungarian uprising against Habsburg rule. Whatever the circumstances of its composition, the work begins in a sepulchral mood and somewhat sulfurous atmosphere, gradually giving way to more peaceful strains, before launching into a headlong defiant charge. Power is required, and Sudbin delivers it.

Yello – Point (2020)
FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/48 kHz | Time – 39:25 minutes | 501 MB | Genre: Pop
Studio Master, Official Digital Download | Front Cover | © Polydor

Undeniably unique and inspirational to generations of DJs and producers, Swiss electronic pioneers Yello return with their 14th studio album, POINT. Musically, POINT takes the classic Yello sound of records like Stella, One Second and Flag and twists it into something ultra-modern. It’s part spy film, part Dali-painting, part strobe lit dance floor, part 4D car chase and part deep space torch song. It’s Yello, absolutely on point.

Yello is above all the story of a hit: Oh Yeah. Released in 1985, Oh Yeah did extremely well thanks to its feature in a series of teen movies, from Ferris Bueller’s Day Off to American Pie, and, of course, thanks to the Simpsons character, Duffman. The has always kept Dieter Meier and Boris Blank fresh in public memory and the Swiss duo shows no sign of fading as they release their sixteenth album dedicated to the sounds of the late 80s, but with a slightly modern twist. This is more or less the sole concept for this album which, as explained by the group, goes in multiple directions: “It’s part spy film, part Dali-painting, part strobe lit dance floor, part 4D car chase and part deep space torch song.” The twelve tracks sound very much like machines from the 1980s, from Way Down, a nod towards Funkadelic, to the flashy, pithy house explosion of Arthur Spark. Forty years later, Yello seem to still be with it.

Tracklist

01. Waba Duba
02. The Vanishing Of Peter Strong
03. Way Down
04. Out Of Sight
05. Arthur Spark
06. Big Boy’s Blues
07. Basic Avenue
08. Core Shift
09. Spinning My Mind

Xuefei Yang – Sketches of China (2020)
FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/88,2 kHz | Time – 01:41:19 minutes | 1,6 GB | Genre: Classical
Studio Master, Official Digital Download | Front Cover | © Go East Music Entertainment Consulting Limited

Acclaimed Chinese guitarist Xuefei Yangreleases a new double-album -Sketches of China -featuring a unique collection of works ranging from the Han Dynasty (206BC-220AD) to the 21st Century, many of which are world premiere recordings. For this album, Xuefei has sought out and arranged poignantly beautiful traditional melodies, commissioned new works from leading Chinese composers and collaborated with colleagues who are the musical superstars in her native land.The first single from the album, A Lovely Rose arranged by Renchang Fu, is available to buy and stream now. The album pairs orchestral works (RenchangFu conducting the Xiamen Philharmonic Orchestra) with duets featuring traditional Chinese instruments (Weiliang Zhang on xiao and Sha Yuan on guzheng), in addition to solo guitar tracks. Through this album, Xuefei aims to share the rich sound world of Chinese classical music with audiences all over the world.

Xuefei Yang’s Sketches of China was released on the Decca label’s Chinese branch but has become a commercial success in the West (as well as, presumably, in China). No doubt this is partly because Yang has already released several well-received albums of Western music, but it’s more than that. The album, in spite of the fact that it comprises exclusively Chinese selections and is presented as a return to the artist’s roots (as a professional classical guitarist Yang is virtually a pioneer in her homeland), occupies a space between East and West that will exert fascination over listeners from both regions. Yang’s program takes a synoptic approach, drawing selections from Chinese traditional music dating back centuries and includes contemporary works as well; Tan Dun’s Seven Desires is an accessible work that will certainly appeal to lovers of the composer’s film scores. Moreover, she draws on the music of China’s ethnic minorities, including that of the persecuted Uighur culture of the far west. Yang uses her own guitar arrangements as well as those of others, and she plays not only solo guitar but duets with Chinese traditional instruments and a few guitar-and-orchestra pieces, joined by the Xiamen Philharmonic under Renchang Fu. Thus, there are two separate forms of fusion happening here: first, there is the act of rendering Chinese tradition on an instrument external to it, and second is the large variety of music being presented. The result is a kaleidoscopic procession in which Yang’s guitar, by turns, stays close to its usual Western sounds and imitates such Chinese instruments as the qin, pipa, and liuqin. The range of sounds coming out of the guitar is startling, and Decca’s engineering team does them justice. A landmark release, not only of guitar music but of the growing interaction between Chinese and Western musical cultures. – James Manheim

The power of a Winter song is hard to describe, like how the delicate world building of a good book can be more compelling than real life. There’s a make-believe, fairy tale surrealism that sets Winter’s blend of shoegaze and psychedelia apart while existing in the same universe as the ethereal dream pop of Cocteau Twins and Melody’s Echo Chamber. Samira Winter grew up in Curitiba, Brazil, where her Brazilian mother filled their home with the gentle melodies of MPB (música popular brasileira), and her father introduced her to the distorted sounds of American punk. At 18, she moved to Boston where she first released music as Winter, eventually moving to LA’s Echo Park.

The addition of a brass ensemble to Christmas concerts and carol services, combining with the more traditional sounds of choir and organ, has become increasingly popular in recent years. This recording brings together a number of works for the specific forces of choir, brass quintet, organ and percussion, some of which have been arranged specially for this release. Interspersed amongst these works are a selection of popular Christmas carols which have formed and integral part of Winchester College Chapel Choir’s core repertoire for many years.

Winchester College was founded by William of Wykeham, Bishop of Winchester, in 1382, and Winchester College Quiristers have for over 625 years sung services in Winchester College Chapel. In modem times they have formed a choir renowned for its excellence.

Having celebrated its 25th anniversary in the 2017-18 season, Onyx Brass continues to be the leading light in establishing the brass quintet as a medium for serious chamber music, inspired by the pioneering early years of the Philip Jones Brass Ensemble. To this end, the group has commissioned and performed the world premières of over 200 new works, with many more in the pipeline for performance and recording.

Their music belied their punk roots and mixed soul with R & B, blues and Cajun influences.
