Seasons Change is an album by saxophonist Lee Konitz and vibraphonist/pianist Karl Berger recorded in Zürich in 1979 and released on the German Circle label. A beautiful pairing – the vibes and piano of Karl Berger, and the amazingly sharp alto tone of Lee Konitz!
Award-winning composer and music theoretician Roman Berger is widely respected for his stand against political repression in Eastern Europe during the last century. Most of the works on this recording are dedicated to the members of The Berger Trio, one of Slovakia’s leading ensembles. They include a commemoration of the composer’s late wife and other aspects of parting. The composer himself has written ‘…for me expressionism is neither a style nor an aesthetic, nor an “anachronistic” fashion: it is the result of life experience. The drama of existence leads to drama in art.’
Lynda Lemay (born 25 July 1966 in Portneuf, Quebec) is a Canadian francophone singer-songwriter. After winning regional awards in 1989 she went to France where her lyrics about everyday life events, sometimes rather ironic, became almost instant classics. She regularly tours in Quebec and France, with particularly frequent appearances at the Paris Olympia.
22 chansons et près d’une heure et demie de musique : le moins que l’on puisse reconnaître à la native de Portneuf (Québec) reste qu’elle ne rechigne pas à la tache, et que si elle vend toujours autant de disques (150 000 copies de Allo C’est Moi, précédente livraison), c’est bien sur scène que la créatrice de « Ne t’en va pas » s’épanouit, et enthousiasme. Cela tombe bien, car la vie de tournée, Lynda Lemay y mord à pleines dents depuis plusieurs mois, enchaînant avec semblable passion prestations en France, Belgique, et Québec.
