For his first monographic CD, Johan Farjot offers a programme of short pieces, for one to eight instruments (New York City, for double saxophone quartet). In this mix of concision and magic, we find the essence of the composer's interests. Perpetuum mobile, ostinatos, imitations, questions and quick responses: for the most part, the pieces on the CD reveal his predilection for a systematic approach. But although he likes symmetry, he likes it just slightly abridged. If he repeats something, it is in order to introduce modifications, however infinitesimal. His clocks are broken, his obsessions are subverted from the interior by delays. If he explores non-modulatory climates, he spices them up with acidic notes. And more generally, if he uses stylistic vocabulary which has already been used by his predecessors, his way of combining it is never conventional.

On this collection he blends his distinctive blues guitar playing with the Latin touches of Spanish acoustic guitarist Juan Gómez ‘Chicuelo’ recreating an individual yet equally beautiful version of ‘Del Sur’. Apart from Southern root characeristics, one can recognise an intense latin blues influence on songs like ‘Spanish Wine’ which is set to be the first single from the album that is to become in every bit a classic epic alongside his songs ‘Blues Latino’ and ‘Buenos Aires Blues’.

Genre: Folk Blues / Label: Verve Forecast

Un an après Tales of America, son premier album Qobuzissime de février 2019, J.S. Ondara sort en pleine épidémie de Covid-19 le bien nommé Tales of Isolation. Le confinement n’a pas vraiment modifié la trajectoire du jeune Kenyan, qualifié par son label de trait d'union entre Tracy Chapman et Michael Kiwanuka. Lui qui avance sur les brisées de ses deux albums de chevet, The Freewheelin’ de Dylan et Nebraska de Springsteen, offre une collection de chansons acoustiques portées par son vibrant chant plaintif et androgyne qui vise aux tripes. L’american dream qui le fascine tant est à nouveau confronté aux intempéries de la vie. Et la création dans son ensemble est chahutée dans ce que les artistes ont de plus intime. Tout ça est l’engrais idéal pour les chansons d’un troubadour de la trempe d’Ondara, qui n’est jamais aussi juste et puissant que lorsque le ciel est gris et orageux.

In the 250th Beethoven anniversary year, Jean-Efflam Bavouzet has chosen this programme of works by contemporary composers to illuminate and contextualise Beethoven’s extraordinary output for piano. In his explanatory note for the album, the pianist writes: ‘Just as a mountain peak is always surrounded by other perhaps less lofty but no less fascinating summits, the major works of Beethoven are not isolated rock formations rising from the desert, but, as it were, “Himalayas”, forming part of a range in which other mountains might be the best pieces by contemporaries such as Clementi, Hummel, Dussek, and Wölfl.

The Rhine is where Richard Wagner’s cycle of operas “Der Ring des Nibelungen” begins and ends – and it was beside the Rhine in 1851 that the composer first dreamed of this equally visionary and monumental work. Even if Wagner’s plans for a festival would ultimately be realised in an entirely different part of Germany, the performance of a “Ring on the Rhine” will always remain something very special.

Three CD set. Over a decade now since punk rocked the British musical scene to it's foundations and caused an eruption of independently produced records, the scene and a new generation of figurehead artists began to let ambition in and head overground, playing to increasingly large crowds, working with bigger budgets and selling more copies, finding a footing in the UK's Top Forty, venturing into the USA and, ultimately, creating a mainstream audience now primed for credible, guitar-tinged pop. Meanwhile, an underground revolution in clubland began to push towards the commercial same space, resulting in an inevitable fusion of songcraft and dancefloor aesthetics.
