Produced by Shaun Morgan and engineered and mixed by Matt Hyde (Deftones, AFI), their new album Si Vis Pacem Para Bellum, (which translates to “If you want peace, prepare for war”) was recorded in Nashville, TN over two months in December 2019 and January 2020. The follow-up to 2017’s Poison the Parish, Si Vis Pacem Para Bellum is the eight album of their illustrious career and features Shaun Morgan’s, aggressive, highly melodic songwriting, some of the most expressive, politically charged music he’s ever made. Seether is joined on the album by their newest member, Cory Lowery (former guitarist / vocalist for Saint Asonia and Stuck Mojo) who adds a broad new sonic dimension to the band’s studio and live work. Tracks such as the anthemic Dangerous and the heavy-hitting Beg seem destined to reclaim Seether’s position as rock giants.

The most important new pieces for old instruments are created in cooperaton with composers, therefore all four works on this album had their beginning in Aleksandrowicz meeting their authors. The album opens with a composition by Zbigniew Bargielski from 1988, On the Other Side of Silences. This piece was originally composed for clarinet and string quartet (Through the Looking Glass) the oboe version was writen by the composer in 2014, commissioned by the 11th editon of the Ensemble Festval in Ksiaz. The Miniatures by Marcin Markowicz also premiered at the Ksiaz Festival, but in 2009. Jan Duszynski and Aleksander Kosciów composed their works in 2017. The works on the album ask questions rather than give answers, and they do it in a very subtle ways. Still, from the first to the last sounds you have the impression of being in touch with a mystery non-verbal despite words appearing, expressed metaphorically with sounds. This is an invitaton to constantly move to the other side of the mirror, into the world of your own imaginatons.

„Music is born only in the heart and it appeals only the heart; it is love! The sister of Music is Poesy, and its mother is Sorrow!” These are the words Sergei Rachmaninov once used to describe his concept of music.

Sergei Babayan’s interpretations of a selection of Rachmaninov’s short pieces mirror this heartfelt sentiment while also showing his deep and unsentimental understanding of the music. In addition to the Études-Tableux, the Préludes and Moments Musicaux, the album contains enchanting, lyrical song transcriptions. Babayan is one of the leading pianists of our time, hailed for his emotional intensity, bold energy and remarkable levels of color.

“Landscapes” is a journey in sound to the roots of the Schumann Quartet, a foursome made up of the three brothers Erik, Ken and Mark Schumann and the viola player Liisa Randalu. Four very different works contribute their personal stories to form a magical whole. At the album’s hub is Arvo Pärt’s composition “Fratres”, meaning “brothers”. The Schumann Quartet rehearsed the work with Pärt in Viimsi in Estonia and recorded it there. The personal contact with the composer came through Pärt’s Estonian compatriot Liisa Randalu.
