In February 2017 Midnight Oil take to Sydney Harbour and announce The Great Circle World Tour. The Circle will begin where the band started out – in Sydney’s pubs – then circumnavigate the globe. It will be their first tour in over 15 years. Over the next 6 months Midnight Oil played in 16 countries across 5 continents – speaking out for a healthy planet and social justice along the way. Eventually they returned to circle around Australia – the land that shaped the Oils and their music. Finally this epic tour circled back to the city where it all began. The venue? Sydney’s Domain – a place that encapsulates a nation’s history. And so after 76 gigs to over half a million people around the world this is where The Great Circle would finally come to a close.

The evocative ECM debut of the outstanding Hungarian guitarist Zsófia Boros addresses a broad range of composition for her instrument, drawing on music of the Americas. “Often I think I am holding the choice of music in my own hands, but later I wonder if the music has chosen me as a medium. My approach is always very intuitive; when a piece of music grips or touches me, I want to reflect it – to become a mirror and convey it.” At the centre of “En otra parte” is music of Leo Brouwer, the Cuban composer who once declared that the guitar has “no limits”, a major reference for Boros from the beginning of her musical journey. Her sensitive solo recital also includes Ralph Towner’s “Green and Golden”, Vicente Amigo’s tribute to the spirit of flamenco (“Callejón de la luna”), a waltz by Dilermando Reis, Quique Sinesi’s “Cielo Abierto”, inspired by the rhythms of candombe and milonga, and much more. Named for the poem by Roberto Juarroz, “Todo comienza en otra parte” (“Everything begins somewhere else”), Boros’s album was recorded in Lugano in 2012 and produced by Manfred Eicher.

The young pianist Yukyeong Ji has already had an impressive career. However, despite all the prizes and hymns of praise from the critics, she does not lose her footing. Her debut CD, featuring extremely rare repertoire by Uzong Choe, Toru Takemitsu, Bertold Hummel, Maurice Ravel and Olivier Messiaen, proves this. We experience fascinating reflections in this music, which sheds new light on other works of music or traces non-musical contents. Yukyeong Ji plays crystal clear and with broad phrases. She breathes life into sophisticated literature and captivates the listener. Exceptional!

The songs of Korean composer Young Jo Lee, chosen by singer Yoora Lee-Hoff for her GENUIN debut, seem like enchanting ink drawings from the Far East. The fabulous coloratura soprano, accompanied by Michael Schütze on the piano, performs the little treasures with great naturalness, a beautiful sound and as clear as a bell. The spectrum of songs from all creative periods of the contemporary composer ranges from the simple, folk-like strophic song to a touch of magical post-impressionist color. Yoora Lee-Hoff sings us about silky haze and scarecrows, moonlit nights and starlight – from another world!

It takes a discerning eye, or in this case ear, to envision the desert as more than a vast, arid wasteland. Pianist/composer Yelena Eckemoff succeeds in musically portraying many of this daunting environment’s mysteries and its boundless allure on her new recording, “Desert”, to be released May 4 on her imprint L&H Production. The quartet outing, the latest in the impressive series of concept albums at the core of the prolific Russian-born, North Carolina-based keyboard virtuoso’s catalog, reunites her with Norwegian bassist Arild Andersen and internationally acclaimed drummer Peter Erskine and features Oregon co-founder Paul McCandless on oboe, English horn, soprano saxophone, and bass clarinet.

Each of “Desert”’s 11 thematically linked compositions, given such descriptive titles as “Bedouins,” “Mirages,” “Condor,” “Oasis,” “Dust Storm,” and “Sands,” showcase Eckemoff’s distinctive style that blends classical music with jazz improvisation to create works that range from the ethereal to the mercurial to the dissonant.
