“20 Jahre, 100 Lieder - das sind 5 pro Jahr… damit kommt man nicht ins Guinness-Buch, aber irgendwie schon klar”
Was MONTREAL hier auf ihrem neuen Album singen, beschreibt die Band ganz gut:
Bloß die eigene Nase nicht allzu ernst nehmen, Ball lieber mal etwas flacher halten.
Dabei gibt es dafür eigentlich keinen Grund - und das zeigt vor allem ihr neues Studioalbum “Am Achteck nichts Neues” (VÖ 12.04.2024) noch eindrucksvoller als die sieben Vorgänger. MONTREAL gibt es nun schon seit 20 Jahren: Yonas, Hirsch und Max Power sind alte Schulfreunde und haben bereits als Teenager ihre erste Band gegründet - und an dieser Formation hat sich bis heute nichts geändert. Als alles immer ernster wurde und die Aufnahmen zum Debüt-Album anstanden, fehlte eigentlich nur eins: Geld. Um also die Finanzierung des ersten Albums irgendwie zu stemmen, jobbten die drei oft auf jenen Bierwagen, die der lechzende Volksmund liebevoll und geometrisch korrekt “Achteck” nennt.

The most complete collection available of music by the father of Czech nationalism in music. Má Vlast, The Bartered Bride and the String Quartet ‘From My Life’: all written within a decade of each other, all so fundamental in their different genres in forming a Czech national identity in music that it can seem incredible they were the work of a single composer.

Mit einer himmlischen Stimme, umhüllt von zarten Klangteppichen und verträumten Arpeggiatoren, beginnt Sofia Portanet ihr zweites Album (Ich Bin). Aber dieses heitere und spirituelle Klangvorspiel wird schnell durch den weiteren Verlauf in ein anderes Licht gerückt. Zwischen einer Hommage an den Disco (Unstoppable) und Moroder-ähnliche Bässe (Entre nos lèvres) wird die deutsche Sängerin, die 2020 mit Freier Geist bekannt wurde, schnell zur energischen Königin eines lyrischen Pops mit mitreißenden Refrains. Sofia Portanet zählt als besonders sonnig, wie My Time beweist, ein Song, mit dem sie behauptet, dass die Welt ihr gehöre.

Six CD set. The year 1965 suffered an unexpected detour in pop culture: starting the explosion of psychedelia and the influence of Bob Dylan's poetry, rock, as an aesthetic movement, wanted to earn the recognition that genres such as jazz or classical music had. Due to this, many virtuoso performers and complex arrangements and improvisation were incorporated to rock's catalog. That's how psychedelic rock and then progressive rock came to be. Meanwhile in Germany, and influenced by both the English rock and by German avant-garde artists such as Karlheinz Stockhausen, a new way of understand rock music was born, with poetry inspired by outer space and a remarkable use of electronics and experimentation. This musical movement was dubbed by British press as krautrock. The Krautrock And Progressive Rock Box is the definitive album that illustrates both these cultural moments, with a range of artists that never before were compiled together. The Krautrock and Progressive Box is a work of unusual magnitude that will delight not only those experts in the genres, but any fan of rock music.

It is usually the big nineteenth-century opera sets that are bought for their singers; but with a line-up of principals such as we have here Handel too is swept into the golden net. Lucia Popp, two years into her career after her Vienna debut, Christa Ludwig, Fritz Wunderlich, Walter Berry: that is a quartet which in its time may have seemed no more than standard stuff, but at this date looks starry indeed. […] The Orfeo, for one thing, is sung in German instead of Italian; it has cuts, though many fewer than the Mackerras recording in English with Dame Janet Baker; it has the solo voices recorded very close indeed (those that are supposedly off-stage are just about where many modern recordings would have them except when off-stage); and the orchestra sounds, to our re-trained ears, big and thick, with the heavy bass-line that used to seem as proper to Handel as gravy from the roast was to Yorkshire pudding.

Vox Luminis has teamed up with the Freiburger Barockorchester again, and together they celebrate music for Ascension Day. This topic inspired great composers such as Johann Sebastian Bach, four of whose Ascension cantatas have been preserved. The festive and colourful Cantata BWV 128 was composed towards the end of Bach’s second year in Leipzig. The Ascension Oratorio BWV 11 was written for larger forces and ends with a triumphant chorus. In the case of Georg Philipp Telemann, more than thirty cantatas for Ascension Day alone have survived. The cantata Ich fahre auf zu meinem Vater (I ascend unto my Father) was composed in 1721 and receives its world premiere recording here. Lionel Meunier’s ensemble and the FBO give a fervent rendering of this captivating music with its texts focusing on the afterlife.

By the turn of the 80s, the impact of David Bowie’s ground-breaking Berlin recordings – the synths, the alienation, the drily futuristic production - was being felt on music across Europe. What’s more, the records being made were reflecting back and influencing Bowie’s own work – 1979’s “Lodger” and 1980’s “Scary Monsters” owed a debt to strands of German kosmische (Holger Czukay), new electronica (Patrick Cowley, Harald Grosskopf), and the latest works from old friends and rivals like Robert Fripp, Peter Gabriel and Scott Walker, all of whom had been re-energised by the fizz of 1977. Compiled by Saint Etienne’s Bob Stanley and the BFI’s Jason Wood, “Fantastic Voyage” is the companion album to their hugely successful “Café Exil” collection, which imagined the soundtrack to David Bowie and Iggy Pop’s trans-European train journeys in the mid-to-late seventies. “Fantastic Voyage” is what happened next.

It is almost exactly a quarter of a century since Pierre Boulez recorded his complete Webern survey. This new collection, apart from being useful for anyone who doesn't want to buy three whole CDs of Webern, offers an interesting insight into how Boulez's way with a composer probably more central to him than any other has changed. For a start he gives him a little more time: most of the pieces here are slightly but significantly slower than they were in 1970. This allows lines to be more subtly moulded, phrases to acquire a touch more poise. This is not to say that Boulez has softened and now phrases Webern as though he were Chopin, but grace and even wit (the second movement of the Quartet) are now noticeable alongside his customary precision. The Ensemble InterContemporain have been playing these pieces constantly since they were first founded, and it shows in the absolute assurance of their performances.

Decca signed an exclusive contract with the Wiener Oktett (Vienna Octet) in the summer of 1948 as a commercially motivated move: a sweetener to the deal that also poached the Philharmonic Orchestra from EMI. The ensemble had been formed only a year or so previously around the Boskovsky brothers, violinist Willi and clarinetist Alfred. Soon enough, audiences at home as well as in concert were enjoying the sound of a quintessentially Viennese ensemble, it's members drawn from the ranks of the Philharmonic, in Classical-era music that could have been written for them, starting with the Septet by Beethoven and the Octet by Schubert. The sweet, silvery tone of the Octet and the easy give-and-go of it's phrasing established the Octet as the latest in a line of distinguished Viennese chamber ensembles, from the Rosé Quartet of Mahler's era to the Barylli Quartet documented by the Westminster label.
