This set documents a historic occasion. Although Coleman Hawkins had been an admirer of Duke Ellington's music for at least 35 years at this point and Ellington had suggested they record together at least 20 years prior to their actual meeting in 1962, this was their first (and only) meeting on record. Although it would have been preferable to hear the great tenor performing with the full orchestra, his meeting with Ellington and an all-star group taken out of the big band does feature such greats as Ray Nance on cornet and violin, trombonist Lawrence Brown, altoist Johnny Hodges, and baritonist Harry Carney. High points include an exuberant "The Jeep Is Jumpin'," an interesting remake of "Mood Indigo," and a few new Ellington pieces. This delightful music is recommended in one form or another.

One genius hides another. Behind Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven were many talented composers who contributed to the development of the classical style, but who are still little known. Generation Mozart brings back into the limelight these forgotten masters. They dedicate their first volume to Joseph Martin Kraus. Mozart's exact contemporary, he was the first architect of the Swedish musical school, which earned him the nickname"Swedish Mozart". Génération Mozart and it's conductor Pejman Memarzadeh join forces with soprano Marie Perbost to put him in his rightful place, through an album mixing opera, arias and orchestral pieces.

Our fourth release in this series offers listeners the opportunity to enjoy chamber music for piano and strings by Boris Papandopulo. The recording premiere of his Concertino in modo antico presents a little masterpiece of Croatian Neoclassicism. As the title itself indicates, here the composer draws on historical models both in form and content. For example, the Overture, a free rendering of the sonata form, recalls similar forms from the Late Baroque and Early Classical periods. It pulsates in a lively motoric rhythm and is based on the polyphonic imitation of numerous short motifs running through the entire movement and reaching their end in a little Fugato.

Hummel and Schubert at their Best Stylistically, Johann Nepomuk Hummel’s music generally stands for the end of Viennese Classicism and the transitional period between this epoch and Romanticism. Hummel composed his Quintet op. 87 in 1802, that is, seventeen years before Schubert wrote his “Trout Quintet” in 1819. The famous chamber music critic Rudolf Felber wrote of Hummel’s work: “The quintet is a masterpiece; the first movement immediately captivates and impresses the listener with its power and passion.

Many works by Camillo Schumann remained unpublished during his lifetime and today are housed in the Saxon State Archive – a fate very different from that of his elder brother Georg Schumann, whose oeuvre has experienced a selective, though continuous renaissance on the recording market during the past decades (e. g., on cpo). And yet Camillo Schumann’s oeuvre covers almost all the musical genres, and more than three hundred works by him have now been documented. The special qualities of Schumann’s compositional capabilities are present in fine fashion everywhere in his sonatas for clarinet and piano: careful, finely balanced architectonic structures with skillfully elaborated transitions between the individual movement sections, attractive dialogues between the voices, congenial use of the resources of the particular instruments, suspenseful intensifications, and neatly proportioned solutions and conclusions.

Queen Christina of Sweden was a lavish patron of music in her own kingdom - initially she mainly extended her patronage to French musicians but from 1652 it was largely Italian musicians whom she brought to her court in Stockholm. Having secretly converted to Catholicism, Christina abdicated in June of 1654 and almost immediately left Sweden - most of her valuable library had been smuggled out earlier - and made her way to Rome, her journey there seeming at times to be effectively a series of triumphal processions; there’s a fine account of all these events in Veronica Buckley’s Christina. Once established in Rome - where her arrival was greeted by special musical performances in the Palazzo Barberini, the Palazzo Pamphili and elsewhere - she soon became one of the city’s most active patrons of literature and music.

For a production at the King's Theatre, Handel had created a mixed version of his Italian serenata Aci, Galatea e Polifemo HWV 72 and the English masque Acis and Galatea HWV 49a, which was performed semi-staged several times in 1732 with a star cast (including Senesino) to great acclaim. For today's ears, the musically attractive version HWV 49b suffers not least from the mixture of English and Italian text. In keeping with Handel's intentions, a purely Italian version was created here with additions from Italian works by the composer. The result is as convincing musically as it is scenically and would have deserved its own number in the catalogue of works.

Scottish guitarist, singer and songwriter. Rafferty was best known for his solo hits "Baker Street", "Right Down the Line" and, with the band Stealers Wheel, "Stuck in the Middle with You". Born into a working-class family in Paisley (Scotland), his mother taught him both Irish and Scottish folk songs as a boy; later, he was influenced by the music of The Beatles and Bob Dylan. He joined the folk-pop band The Humblebums - whose line-up included Billy Connolly - in 1969, but left in 1971 and recorded his first solo album "Can I Have My Money Back". Rafferty and Joe Egan formed the group Stealers Wheel in 1972, producing several hits. In 1978, he recorded his second solo album, "City to City", which includes "Baker Street", his most popular song and a radio mainstay…

„There are countless reasons for loving Bach’s music“. Schaghajegh Nosrati on her relationship to Johann Sebastian Bach
There are countless reasons for loving Bach’s music. Certain musicians and music-lovers are fascinated by its complexity, its flawless craftmanship. Others treasure it for its emotional, spiritual significance with total absence of sentimentality. Others, still, are seduced by Bach’s appealing mixture of transparency and warmth.

The album Gusto NON barbaro is devoted to German chamber music of the 18th century. It features works by four composers, of whom Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach is the central figure. The album's title refers to a quotation taken from Quantz's treatise, eloquently characterising the transformations that took place in the style of German music against the background and under the influence of the work of two leading centres: France and Italy. The modern mode of composition, open to the assimilation of respectable aesthetic achievements in the art of other nations, became so dominant in Germany in the 18th century that this very stylistic synthesis was considered a distinctively German feature.

This recording from the 2018 Göttingen Handel Festival presents two rarely heard works by Georg Friedrich Haendel: The Choice of Hercules and the Te Deum for the Victory of Dettingen. In The Choice of Hercules from 1751, Handel musically processes the mythical theme of Hercules at the crossroads, whereby Hercules' vacillation between virtue and lust is ideal for the back and forth in the search for the right path in life.

'Buena Vista Social Club' is both the name given to this extraordinary group of musicians and the album, recorded in just seven days in 1996 in Havana's 1950s vintage EGREM studios. It was clear from the atmosphere of the recording sessions that something very special was taking place. However, no one could have predicted that Buena Vista Social Club would become a worldwide phenomenon - awarded a Grammy in 1997 and, at 8 million copies, outselling any other record in the same genre.

With this Real Gone release, we take a long-overdue look at the career of pioneering country-pop crossover artist Jody Miller, whose mellow mix of folk, country, rock and pop influences paved the way for the radio-friendly recordings of such female singers as Olivia Newton-John, Anne Murray and Linda Ronstadt. Jody first hit the charts in 1965 with "Queen of the House," her answer song to Roger Miller's "King of the Road," but in 1970 she signed to Epic and, under the guidance of Nashville legend Billy Sherrill, notched a string of chart hits throughout the decade, all 25 of which appear on this 69-minute collection. Most of these songs have never appeared on CD before, and they come with notes featuring quotes from Jody herself as well as photos from her private collection. Pure country ear (and eye) candy!
