Nick Saloman of the Bevis Frond once again invites us to join him in the obscure pleasures of little-known pop, R&B, and jazz instrumental sides of the '60s and '70s with this collection. A number of the selections featured on Return of the Instro-Hipsters are so obscure that even Saloman isn't sure just who is responsible for them (though he offers some educated guesses on the artists behind such names as Sharks, Oliver Bone, and the Masked Phantom), but there are a good share of solid grooves and kicky melodies to be found here from a number of gifted little-knowns. If you went to the movies in the '70s, "Soul Thing" by Tony Newman will sound familiar, while flautist Harold McNair solos over a Dave Brubeck-influenced piano groove on "The Hipster," Jerry Allen demonstrates new uses for game calls on "Fuzzy Duck," Thunder Road's synthesized version of "Peter Gunn" beats Art of Noise's variation on the theme by more than 15 years, "The Brooke Bond Beat" by Cliff Adams may be the most swingin' tea commercial ever, and the Outer Limits serve up some tough, moody rock, appropriately titled "Black Boots".

At the heart of Beethoven’s life’s statement as a composer lies the cycle of sixteen string quartets, which, to this day, has retained a special status and reverence. Since 2012, the Elias String Quartet has been immersed in its Beethoven Project, performing all Beethoven’s string quartets at venues throughout the UK. In this live recording, the ensemble captures both the intimacy and grandeur of the works. With an ever-expanding recording catalogue that has been met with widespread critical acclaim, the quartet is delighted to release this disc, the first volume of its complete Beethoven cycle to be recorded live at Wigmore Hall over the coming Seasons.

The Aeolian Quartet's epic cycle, originally released in the Seventies, was one of the gramophone's major contributions to Haydn's cause. Listening to the performances anew I find they have lost none of their freshness: they were based on the latest research, and the playing itself is always intelligent and thoughtful, with Emanuel Hurwitz's sweet-toned violin-playing a great asset throughout.

Un anno fa usciva Passione Maledetta. Tre dischi di platino dopo è la volta di Passione Maledetta 2.0, il cofanetto dei Modà che esce oggi mentre la band è impegnata nel tour nei palasport che andrà avanti fino al 7 dicembre e avrai poi una coda primaverile a marzo. Un cofanetto «che non è solo una ristampa natalizia», precisa l'anima del gruppo Kekko Silvestre, e che insieme al disco da oltre 150 mila copie vendute e a due dvd (uno con il live di San Siro di giugno e uno con i backstage del live e contenuti speciali), propone quello che poteva essere un vero e proprio nuovo disco con 10 inediti.

Akasha is an international musical collaboration reflecting a new era in the way music is being created: the musicians that are part of this group use the internet as their meeting place. Musical ideas are exchanged back and forth in cyberspace until the desired result is achieved. Singers from the UK (Tanmayo), Israel (Gerhard Fankhauser) and New Zealand (Kiri Iriwata) exchange ideas online with instrumentalists from India (Bikram Singh on flute, Avinash Jagtap on violin) and composer/producer Chinmaya Dunster. All share a deep commitment to meditation and Eastern philosophy. Their love for the ancient spiritual chants of India has lead to Yoga Spirit, a harmonic blend of East and West, acoustic and electronic instruments, created to support yoga practice.

Label: Grand Piano | Release Year: 2016

Nikolay Medtner’s 14 piano sonatas are considered the most significant achievement in this genre by any composer since Beethoven. After the success of his First Piano Sonata (GP617) he turned to Goethe for inspiration, and the life and love-affirming Sonata-Triad Op. 11 translates the poet’s words of passion, suffering and redemption into sound. The capricious, mysterious and beautiful Sonata-Skazka is a masterpiece in miniature and was once Medtner’s most performed work. Dating from his years of exile, the eloquent themes of the fourteenth and final Sonata-Idyll linger long in the memory.

Chopin's two piano concertos have long been admired more as pianistic vehicles than as integrated works for piano and orchestra. But in his revelatory new recording, Krystian Zimerman suggests otherwise: The opening orchestral tuttis have so much more light, shade, orchestral color, and detail, you wonder if they've been rewritten. Every gesture, every instrumental solo is so specifically characterized that by the time the piano makes a dramatic entrance, the pieces have become operas without words.
