Prior to Lovedrive's recording, the Scorpions' lineup had a major change when their lead guitarist, Uli Jon Roth, quit the group (not to mention, the rock genre was rapidly changing). With this in mind, the band not only highlighted the album with the licks and riffs of three guitarists (Rudolf Schenker, Michael Schenker, Matthias Jabs), but they also dramatically changed their style to sound more like that of Van Halen. This change is quite welcome; not only are the performances more unpredictable, but the lyrics and melodies are better written. In fact, some of the Scorpions' best songs, such as "Loving You Sunday Morning," "Holiday," and "Coast to Coast" are found here, making it one of their finest.~ Barry Weber (All Music Guide)

The 24 Caprices by Pietro Antonio Locatelli are unique in terms of both their form and their content. Taken from L’Arte del Violino op.III published in 1733 in Amsterdam, the Caprices are placed at the end of the external movements. They are autonomous pieces which have all the characteristics of the cadenza, namely a free form, and a highly inventive virtuosity. Gabriel Tchalik was born into a Franco-Russian family, these two cultures affecting both his personality and technique. He spent many years studying with Alexandre Brussilovsky. His impressive technical and musical qualities have been acknowledged at numerous international competitions. He won first prize at the Islam Petrella Competition in Albania, first prize at the first Yuri Yankelevitch International Competition in 2009.

Dating from 2005 and 2012, these are the Vienna Philharmonic’s first recordings of two of Schoenberg’s works: the Piano Concerto with soloist Daniel Barenboim under Pierre Boulez and the extremely challenging Violin Concerto starring father and son: Michael Barenboim as soloist under the direction of his father Daniel. Even today the virtuosity of the Violin Concerto instils a sense of awe in many violinists; for a time Jascha Heifetz regarded the work as unplayable.

Of Claus Ogerman's four mod albums for Victor, Soul Searchin' is a favorite for many because the theme, and certainly the tunes, are hip. As Ogerman's liner notes explain, he ranks soul third in significance after pop and jazz. In any case, Ogerman does a competent job covering all these songs; the title track (an Ogerman original) can be called funky, even. A large factor is Dick Hyman's Lowrey organ; his facility with both jazz and soul is in full evidence here. "The End of the Line" was a hit for Vinnie Bell, but the greater significance is that it was written by Pat Williams and Phil Ramone. The Ogerman albums on Victor share a great deal with the mod albums on Verve by Williams, Kai Winding, and others. Veering away from pop and toward soul-jazz, Soul Searchin' has a peppy jazz-boogaloo beat that feels neither constrained nor ponderous. The surprise is that it works.

A true evaluation of Cicero's creativity requires not only an appreciation of his tremendous technique but also an ability to listen with the heart. Cicero loved music and he loved his audience. He never played for himself, but for his audiences, which he always succeeded in captivating. His careful selection of originals, prior to each performance, was a pure delight not only for the friends of classical music but also for jazz lovers. On this 1967 release Cicero interprets Liszt arranged for jazz ensemble.

Romanian jazz pianist Eugen Cicero established a unique style throughout his career walking the line between classical and jazz. He recorded several theme albums like this one, each drawing on material from a specific classical composer; on this 1966 session Cicero interprets Tchaikovsky, including an excerpt from The Nutcracker Suite.
