Georg Philipp Telemann's string concertos position themselves somewhere between the polyphonic complexity of the Bach orchestral sinfonias, the urbanity of Handel's concerti grossi, and Vivaldi's innumerable and endlessly delightful works of this type. But his approach always remained the most international as well as the most local. Two of these concertos, for example, exemplify the "Polish" style appropriate for the Electors of Saxony (Telemann's employers, who were also kings of Poland), with their folky rhythms and groaning bass parts. Telemann offers a bit of the French style galant here or Italian theatricality there–he's labeled one of the movements "Arlechinoso"–as the mood and moment suit him. Reinhard Goebel and the Musica Antiqua Köln dress these motleys with typical panache, a liveliness that argues once again for the validity of the period-instruments approach. One can well imagine Telemann hearing his music performed this way and nodding in approval. What the players have brought to Johann David Heinichen and some of the Baroque composers of the Baltic states serves them perfectly here: the conviction that while not all 18th-century music may match Bach's profundity, much of it nevertheless shows us a very good time. And that Telemann, perhaps, can show us the best time of all.

Essential: a masterpiece of prog rock music.
Solaris' Marsbéli Krónikák is one of the few shining lights that got unnoticed during that bleak 1980s period of progressive rock, not to mention the fact that very few people in the West ever heard this album. It wasn't until the 1990s and exposure on the Internet, plus someone taking the time to reissue this on CD that the West finally got to hear this amazing gem from this five-piece instrumental band from Hungary. I first discovered the band by reading their entry in the GEPR in the late 1990s.

"Absolute Torch and Twang" was the last bona fide country album of k.d. lang's career, and while external circumstances may have forced her hand in exploring other musical avenues, this set suggests she may have already been headed that way. Absolute Torch and Twang is the definitive statement of lang's country period; by this time, she'd moved past the slightly kitschy Patsy Cline homages of her earliest work and developed a strong musical personality of her own, using her rich and supple voice to approach material both witty and heartfelt. lang's collaboration with producer and songwriter Ben Mink was reaching its peak as well, with the performances and arrangements hitting a superb grace note between polish and passion.

Since the release of their first album, ‘Imbarca’, Barcelona Gipsy Klezmer Orchestra (aka BGKO) has constantly been on tour. During this touring period, many great musicians would often join to play with the band. So BGKO invited some of these musicians, these living legends, to play and record as a soloist in their concerts and new album. King of saxophone from Macedonia Ferus Mustafov, poet of gipsy music Vlado Kreslin and Turkish jazz singer Nihan Devecioglu are featured as guests on this album. The energetic vibe of the first album is still very present, and these solo additions make it even more exciting.

The four stylistically contrasting concertos of this recording represent the technical and expressive range achieved by Johann Joachim Quantz during his long career in the service of the King. Although the music of the Baroque period was becoming less fashionable and being favoured by the gallant style of composers like Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, Quantz continued to write in a more conservative style, which pleased the Kings tastes. Flutist Eric Lamb is in demand internationally as a concerto soloist, recitalist, concert curator and chamber musician.

With her new album Simone Kermes presents her dedication to bel canto. Despite the title the Baroque soprano hasn’t suddenly switched from one voice type to another but is simply following her own interpretation of this term, arguing that bel canto is “inconceivable without reference to the Baroque tradition”.
The album centres around famous arias of the belcanto soprano repertoire: “Casta Diva“ from Bellini’s Norma, “O luce di quest’ anima“ from Donizetti’s Linda di Chamounix and “Dolce pensiero“ from Rossini’s Semiramide.
The programme also features a number of rarely performed works: Airas of Mercadantes “Virginia“, Rossini’s “Maometto Secondo“, Donizetti’s “Betly“ or Bellini’s “Adelson e Salvini“. As a connecting link between baroque and bel canto Kermes added the two arias of the Queen of Night from Mozart’s Magic Flute. Simone Kermes is accompanied by Concerto Cöln, performing on period instruments.

Knowing Demons, Knowing Spirits in the Early Modern Period

Knowing Demons, Knowing Spirits in the Early Modern Period

Knowing Demons, Knowing Spirits in the Early Modern Period by Michelle D. Brock
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 323 Pages | ISBN : 3319757377 | 6.47 MB

This book explores the manifold ways of knowing—and knowing about— preternatural beings such as demons, angels, fairies, and other spirits that inhabited and were believed to act in early modern European worlds. Its contributors examine how people across the social spectrum assayed the various types of spiritual entities that they believed dwelled invisibly but meaningfully in the spaces just beyond (and occasionally within) the limits of human perception. Collectively, the volume demonstrates that an awareness and understanding of the nature and capabilities of spirits—whether benevolent or malevolent—was fundamental to the knowledge-making practices that characterize the years between ca. 1500 and 1750. This is, therefore, a book about how epistemological and experiential knowledge of spirits persisted and evolved in concert with the wider intellectual changes of the early modern period, such as the Protestant Reformation, the Scientific Revolution, and the Enlightenment.

Genre: Classical / Label: Paladino Music

For their debut recording, the Kreisler Trio Wien have chosen Mozart's monumental and much-loved Divertimento in E-flat major, and - together with the Vienna Philharmonic's principal hornist Wolfgang Vladar - the horn quintet. In 2017 the Kreisler Trio Wien celebrated its 10-year anniversary. Since its inception in 2007, the Kreisler Trio Wien has developed into one of Austria’s top chamber music ensembles- a result of their strong sense of musical culture, exhilarating performances and excellent musicianship. The name of the ensemble is an homage to the ingenious Austrian violinist and composer Fritz Kreisler. One marvels at his art, while his musical heritage and personality symbolically stand for triumph over destruction and renewal through the power of music.

The recording of the Symphony No. 2 in B flat major, op. 4 (B 12) by Antonín Dvořák (1841–1904) played by the ensemble Musica Florea is part of a longer-term project, which aims to perform and subsequently release audio recordings of all nine symphonies by Antonín Dvořák in authentic interpretations on period instruments or copies of such instruments in the spirit of period performance practice. In the case of the Second Symphony, the performance will be of the original version, predating the revisions Dvořák made in connection with preparations for the world premiere in 1888. The recording will therefore give us a unique opportunity to get an authentic look at the quality of the composer’s work during an early phase of his creative development and to discover the departure point from which the novice composer developed his original symphonic style, refined over the following decades, and taking shape as masterpieces that are among the supreme works in the context of their period.

Jetzt liegt er zum ersten Mal so vor, wie ihn Kästner geschrieben und gemeint hat – unter dem Titel, den Kästner ursprünglich vorgesehen hatte: Der Gang vor die Hunde. 1931 lieferte Erich Kästner seinem Verlag ein Manuskript mit dem Titel Der Gang vor die Hunde: die Geschichte des arbeitslosen Germanisten Jakob Fabian, der durch das überhitzte Berlin der späten zwanziger Jahre streift, eine Stadt, die sich politisch und erotisch im Ausnahmezustand befindet…

If you can tolerate Dirk Vermeulen’s rigidly vibrato-less strings versus winds and brass that play with far more color, expression, and, yes, a smidgen of vibrato, it is worth the effort for pianist Klára Würtz’s incandescent handling of the Mozart K. 271 and K. 467 concertos’ solo parts. She consistently shapes echoed phrases with contrast and character, and creates appropriate vocal-inspired tension in the slow-movement melodies’ wide interval leaps.
