the 40 minute composition inherent brings forth an astonishing utilization of minimalist structures, demonstrating intense simplicity and stillness. in the course of the piece two groups of harmonies gradually emerge, intertwine and dissolve delving the spectrum of synchrony and displacement. it feels as if one would enter a room of liberating timelessness just through experiencing all subtle stages of two large rhythms interlacing.

There is no body without flesh, no physical presence without its most obvious substance. In a continuous process of revealing what that substance is regarding to its own sound practice, FERA has produced this CORPO SENZA CARNE as a transient audio document about researching new and perhaps more intimate possibilities for a bare, naked, brutally honest and direct sonic expression. After STUPIDAMUTAFORMA’s recollection of ten years of research on melody and texture and after the desperate standstill of CATASTROFE ULTRAVIOLETTA’s broken industrial loops, CORPO SENZA CARNE strips FERA away of synthesizers and recognizable melody in a haze of echoes, broken pedals, distortions and sampling, sculpting a clearer, deeper path into sonic hypnosis and seduction. It is an invitation to lay bare, to listen closer and more carefully to impulses and voices outside of the human, to acceptance.

Originally produced and managed by legendary label man and broadcaster Eddie Piller, founder of Acid Jazz, who released their first single on his first own Well Suspect marque in 1982.

An exciting collection of Mod-Revival-era tunes, and an important document of the wider Mod Revival and Acid Jazz Records story.

in June is rooted in Jazz, melancholic folk songs, and classical art songs. The result of this synthesis, however, is far from what you’d expect it to be. From these elements, Fama M’Boup develops her very own language of a cappella music for four voices, now and then applying synthesizers or drums to finish it. in June finds expression through vocal music that has little to do with the things we think we know about this somewhat dusty genre. Neoclassical meets electronic music, spoken word meets Rilke and brutal honesty. You can also recognize structures of contemporary pop songs – ranging from feather-light and playful (“How to Kiss”) to a soaring sea of roaring, agitated emotions (“Emotionsea”).

Les animaux sont discrets, mais tout de même bien présents dans la musique française des XVIIe et XVIIIe siècles, aussi nous amuserons-nous à en suivre la trace dans un safari musical destiné à les débusquer là où ils se cachent le mieux : dans les airs sérieux, les airs à boire, et les débuts de la cantate française.

Innombrables les moutons des bergères et bergers de nos airs pastoraux, innombrables les oiseaux, présents aussi les ânes autant que les chiens, qu’ils soient bergers ou chasseurs. On voit passer aussi des chats, des abeilles, des papillons aussi bien que des bêtes féroces : des lions, des tigres, des ours et des serpents. Nous puisons abondamment, pour la partie musicale de ce programme, dans le charmant répertoire de fables de La Fontaine, mises en musique dans les recueils de Poésies Spirituelles et morales, publiés dans les années 1730.

La société aristocratique de Louis XIV n’était ni un modèle d’équité ni de paix sociale, loin de là, mais l’un de ses bons côtés – dû sans doute à une passion discutable pour les plaisirs de la chasse – était son respect et son admiration pour la nature, dont on était loin d’avoir découvert toutes les merveilles.

Even as he emerges onto Denmark’s new music scene as a major new voice, Matias Vestergård is a rarity on it: a composer fluent, flexible, prolific and poly-stylistic who draws on genres ranging from hymnody to cabaret while probing some of the basic theories of sound and its production.

The music recorded here was written during Vestergård’s years at the Academy of Music in Copenhagen, charting a process of self-discovery described by the composer as “my younger self trying to deal with the serious classical music heritage I love”.

Edvard Grieg, arguably the most popular composer ever to emerge from the Scandinavian peninsula, made substantial contributions to the chamber music canon with his violin sonatas rather than with his works for cello: only one sonata for cello and piano (Op. 36) was written for this line-up. Daniel Müller-Schott, always driven to expand the musical repertoire for his instrument and with a keen sense of transcriptions, for this all-Grieg album – which is his 20th album on the label Orfeo – hence transcribed and recorded for the first time the violin sonata in C minor, Op. 45, No. 3, for the cello. Accompanied by his long-standing duo-partner Herbert Schuch on piano, the short Intermezzo in A minor (EG 115) guides us to the second part of the album, where the duo presents selected songs of various characters transcribed for cello and piano.

In September 1809, the Vienna Hofburg Theatre commissioned Ludwig van Beethoven to create new incidental music for Johann Wolfgang von Goethe’s “Egmont”. The tragedy had premiered in Mainz on 9 January 1789. It calls for incidental music; but various attempts, some commissioned by the poet himself, remained unfinished or were unsatisfactory. In Vienna, however, the production of “Egmont” was to include the music called for in several places. Beethoven set to work. Since the subject matter suited him – the tragedy is set in Brussels, which is under threat from Spanish troops, and deals with resistance against oppression and foreign rule – he made good progress. Nevertheless, the Viennese theatre premiere of “Egmont” on 24 May 1810 still had to do without music; the score was not completed until the third repetition. Beethoven’s music for the play had its premiere on 15 June 1810. The music itself speaks for the fact that the commission was close to Beethoven’s heart; it far exceeds the standard of the stage music of the time. This applies to the compositional demands, but also to the relationship of the music to the drama. Instead of mere illustration, Beethoven provided an interpretation and thus an additional level of meaning. The well-known Egmont Overture, the most dramatically dense piece of drama music, anticipates the plot, introduces the characters. A clear reference to the drama is made in the ending, which corresponds exactly to the symphony of victory called for by Goethe at the end of the tragedy. Five of the ten numbers are directly integrated into the stage action; the other five, in addition to the overture and the four inter-act music pieces, are less closely linked to the drama. A concert performance of the music, conceived entirely for scenic presentation, dispenses with the context to the play. Often only the overture was and is played. – The declamation texts written by Friedrich Mosengeil, authorised by Goethe and revised by Franz Grillparzer, have been supplemented here by passages from Goethe’s Trauerspiel and newly arranged by August Zirner.

Album 1 of the present recording offers the complete version with declamation and music; album 2 features only Beethoven’s music. The box is completed with Beethoven’s overture “Zur Namensfeier”, op. 115.

This CD presents three of the most well known and most performed concertos for oboe in the instrument’s repertoire. It is often said that the classical era is full of intrigue and mystery, and the history of music is no exception. However, time hides as much as it enlightens, and the ancient adage “Veritas filia Temporis” (Truth is the daughter of Time) often solves these riddles.
