This is a gem of a CD. It's a well-chosen, well-performed and well-presented anthology of mid-Baroque German sacred cantatas. Bass Peter Kooij and the seven-person L'Armonia Sonora are directed by gambist Mieneke Van der Velden. They have a close and warm affinity not only with one another, but also for the music; it's music as varied as it's beautiful. Its rich, sustained sonorities will stay with you long after you have finished the uplifting experience of listening to the CD. Released on the enterprising Ramée label De profundis clamavi comprises seven sumptuous examples of the music written in the north German Länder in the period after the Thirty Years War. It's music which not so much 'reflects' that profound conflict, as is 'affected' by it – weighed down with detached regret and unselfconscious resignation.

Genre: Jazz, Vocal Jazz | Label: Double Moon Records

The band around singer Maika Kuster, pianist Simon Seeberger, bassist yannik Tiemann and drummer Jo Beyer can best be understood if you throw all intellectual ballast overboard and let yourself be completely guided by your instincts. The music of the wise panda makes demands and touches you, it develops an idiosyncratic dynamic that you first have to understand and accept to be drawn into its powerful vortex. Der Weise Panda enchants thanks to an unusually high degree of technical maturity, but which never becomes an end in itself. Maikas voice floats somewhere between heaven and earth and jumps to and fro without warning between English and German.

Carl Maria von Weber's opera "Der Freischütz" met with instant success on its premiere in Berlin 1821, rapidly spreading throughout Europe. Audiences identified readily with the folk melodies and hunting character of its Bohemian setting. The story tells of Max's struggle to win Agathe in marriage. The desperation which leads him to trade with the devil in order to regain his lost marksman's skills, finds resolution when fate intervenes to prevent the fatal "free bullet" from striking Agathe, saved by the sacred roses in her bridal coronet. In this Achim Freyer production from the Wüttemberg State Opera, the Huntsman's role is taken by Toni Krämer, with Caterina Ligendza as Agathe, Raili Viljakainen as Ännchen and Wolfram Raub as Samiel, under the bariton of American conductor Dennis Russell Davies.

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach is the most famous of the sons of J.S. Bach. His magisterial oeuvre contains, notably, a large number of concertos for various instruments and keyboard pieces. But the composer also excelled at vocal music, thus continuing in the family tradition by composing, among other genres, sacred and secular cantatas and songs. His works respect the rules of Baroque style while also hinting at the dawn of the Classical style subsequently represented by Haydn and Mozart.

Since its founding 25 years ago, hardly a German band has managed to create such a musical musical cosmos as the Mühlheimer Bandbohren & the Club Of Gore. With their dark instrumental tracks, drummers have been able to create a huge fanbase over the past few years, and renowned musicians like Mike Patton (Faith No More), Ry-X, John Grant, Soap & Skin and Thor Harris (Swans) Drilling has long since decayed. The wonderfully titled "Drilling For Beginners" brings together all the highlights of the drilling catalog in z.T. New mixed versions, as well as a new song, so that the present Werkschau is of interest both as a starting point for newcomers, as well as for the fans. Since a large part of the drilling back catalog has been deleted for years, musical treasures have been lifted which have not lost any of the quality and will still produce goose bumps in 20 years. "Drilling For Beginners" also rings an extensive drilling backcatalogue campaign with re-releases of the masterpieces "Sunset Mission", "Ghost Fist" and "Black Earth".

Recorded at Austria's Salzburger Festpiele, composer Richard Strauss' comic opera tells a tale about love between an aging noblewoman, her handsome lover, a bumbling baron and a wealthy merchant's beautiful daughter.
