This CD of music by Gabriela Lena Frank (b. 1972), titled Compadrazgo, is the type I like to call “out there.” It’s composed, one imagines, on the precipice of the composer’s mind and creative faculties, reaching both inward and outward towards models and inspirations that seem to gestate inside and come out in an almost spontaneous burst of creativity. ...There is no question that the music on Compadrazgo is strange and challenging to Western, non-South American ears, but if you are open to new experiences I think you’ll find it opens new doors to your mind.

Philip Glass’ Concerto Fantasy for Two Timpanists and Orchestra, composed in 2000 and transcribed for wind ensemble by Mark Lortz in 2004, is a significant addition to the repertoire of large-scale works for timpani. The work is rhythmically galvanizing, sonically alluring, and features virtuoso cadenzas for both soloists. Symphony No 4 ‘In the Shadow of No Towers’ is Mohammed Fairouz’s first major work for wind ensemble, and its inspiration is the provocative comic book by Art Spiegelman, written shortly after the terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001. Spiegelman himself has commented: “I’m moved by [this] scary, somber, and seriously silly symphony…I’m honored that the composer found an echo in my work that allowed him to strike a responsive chord and express his own complex responses to post 9/11 America. He emerges from the rubble with a very tony piece of high-brow cartoon music.”

Biber's 'Rosary Sonatas' for violin and basso continuo stand alone in the violin literature and in music history, offering a unique combination of programmatic material and the use of scordatura. The cycle consists of fifteen sonatas for violin and basso continuo, and a closing Passacaglia for solo violin, composed c.1687. Through the copper engravings inserted at the head of each sonata in the manuscript depicting key moments in the lives of Christ and the Virgin Mary, the music has become associated with the Catholic Mysteries of the Rosary.

NEVERMIND is made up of four young musicians and friends whose passion for early music and for the influence of jazz and traditional music stimulated them to form an ensemble whose virtuosity is equalled only by their youthful impetuosity and their love of fine music . . . For its first disc, Nevermind tackles the treasures of the Baroque in the shape of two totally neglected French composers.

Quel abîme sans fond que ces Huit pièces pour la rose des vents de Maurizio Kagel ! Commencé avec L’Est en 1989 et s’achevant avec Nord de 1994, ce périple fait allègrement le tour de la planète musicale car Kagel ne se situe pas à un endroit unique initial pour désigner ses directions : l’Est des uns est l’Ouest des autres, et quand au « Nord », il exprime en Amérique du Sud les contrées les plus chaudes puisqu’exposées plein nord – au soleil donc.

“Beginning with a low hum, choirs of cellos – 45 cellists in the Northwestern University Cello Ensemble, directed by Hans Jorgen Jensen- gradually make their entrances, slowly blooming like a bright golden sun bursting over a mountain range.” (Tom Huizenga, Deceptive Cadence, NPR)

For 20 years (from 1663 to 1683) Henry Du Mont directed the music of the Sun King’s chapel. For the daily Mass there he built up a new repertory consisting of motets for full chorus and more intimate pieces for solo voices. The former aimed to transpose to the context of ‘ordinary’ the format of the large-scale works conceived for extraordinary ceremonies. Sébastien Daucé presents an innovative approach to these grands motets, that at once links specific musical features with historical data, for each of which he adopts a specific instrumental scoring.
