William McKinley "Red" Garland, Jr. (May 13, 1923 – April 23, 1984) was an American modern jazz pianist. Known for his work as a bandleader and during the 1950s with Miles Davis, Garland helped popularize the block chord style of piano playing. William "Red" Garland was born in 1923 in Dallas, Texas. He began his musical studies on the clarinet and alto saxophone but, in 1941, switched to the piano. Less than five years later, Garland joined a well-known trumpet player in the southwest - Hot Lips Page, playing with him until a tour ended in New York in March 1946. Having decided to stay in New York to find work, Art Blakey came across Garland playing at a small club, only to return the next night with Blakey's boss, Billy Eckstine. Garland also had short-lived career as a welterweight boxer in the 1940s. He fought more than 35 fights, one being an exhibition bout with Sugar Ray Robinson.

Sunset In The 12th House is a new band founded by Dordeduh masterminds Edmond Karban (aka Hupogrammos) and Sol Faur. Acting mainly as an instrumental band, the quartet, which is completed by Dordeduh drummer Sergio Ponti and bass player Mihai Moldoveanu, performs a unique style that can be best described as a blend of Psychedelic Post Rock and traditional oriental music. The enigmatic band name refers to the astrological array in which the twelfth house is the house of subconsciousness and unconsciousness, of intuition, compassion and spiritual transcendence.

Pinchgut Opera presented one of the glories of the French baroque for the first time in Australia. Castor & Pollux is Rameau's finest creation. It's a story based in mythology about the self-sacrificing love between two brothers. The music goes straight to the heart. With some of the most beautiful vocal and orchestral writing of the period, the opera was an instant hit when it was first presented.

Known/Learned is the third album from this thought provoking progressive band from Brisbane, Australia. It s a sprawling 2CD collection of themes and moments, captured between recurring characters. While never explicitly told in the traditional vein of the concept album , the imagery of Known/Learned depicts fragmented moments in the lives of a father and his daughter, their loss, their love, their journey. A bittersweet love song for life.
Arcane blends the technicality of progressive metal with the atmospheric intensity of bands like Tool and Anathema…

Genre: Classical | Label: ACCENT

Arthur Schoonderwoerd, one of today's most sought-after interpreters on the fortepiano, presents the fourth part of his complete recording of Mozart's piano concertos on the Accent label with this release of the two early Piano Concertos, KV238 and KV246. As on their previous issues, Schoonderwoerd and his ensemble Cristofori here liberate Mozart's works from traditional 19th-century sound concepts: each string part in the orchestra is played by just one performer; the result is a very slender, transparent sound that supports the solo instrument without ever covering it up.

When a complex arrangement of music for a band is distilled down to a single instrument, that’s when the strength of the song’s structure, the essential beauty of its melody and harmony, is fully revealed. We know the basic building blocks of Pat Metheny’s compositions are solid and often sublime, so it’s great to be reminded of them. Peo Alfonsi, the Sardinian who first came to international attention when Al Di Meola chose to pay in a duo with him and then incorporated him into his New World Sinfonia, plays an acoustic guitar and here treats 13 of Metheny’s tunes to his own interpretations.

Pour son quatrième album en leader, la pianiste et compositrice Leïla Olivesi s’inspire des voyages interplanétaires imaginés dans ses romans par l’écrivain Cyrano de Bergerac. Entre utopie et critique sociale, roman d’aventure et discours philosophique, ses Etats et Empires du Soleil et de la Lune sont une œuvre majeure du XVIIe siècle qui préfigure la science-fiction. Un récit moderne et humoristique dans lequel la musique est vue comme un langage universel! A la tête d’un quartet aventureux où brille le guitariste Manu Codjia, Leïla Olivesi délivre un ensemble de compositions chaleureuses et colorées sous le signe de l’utopie et du voyage, qui salue la libre pensée et tous ceux qui rêvent à un monde meilleur.

The Brass Septet Imperial is a Finnish ensemble. Its mission is to honour and revitalise the old Finnish brass septet traditions and at the same time to raise traditional septet playing to the highest artistic standard. Its members are all among the finest masters of their instruments in Finland. The Septet is modelled on the time-honoured Brass Septet Imperial of the Finnish Radio Symphony Orchestra familiar to radio listeners for decades. Its repertoire consists of classic works for this line-up and quality transcriptions. The ensemble also actively seeks out new music for brass septet and commissions works for this collection of instruments. This debut disc, Punaiset ja valkoiset laulut (which literally means ‘Red and White Songs’) of songs across the political divide, presents an interesting selection of both original arrangements for Finnish brass septet arranged roughly a century ago and also brand-new septet arrangements of these traditional works.

Stile Antico's 2015 release on Harmonia Mundi, A Wondrous Mystery, is a sublime collection of Renaissance choral music for Christmas, presented in a pleasant mix of familiar German carols and a mass, with tracks interspersed for the sake of variety. This makes sense in consideration of the group's broad audience, which may know such popular hymns as Michael Praetorius' Ein Kind geborn in Bethlehem and Es ist ein Ros entsprungen, or Johannes Eccard's Übers Gebirg Maria geht and Vom Himmel hoch, yet be somewhat at a loss with the motet and Missa Pastores quidnam vidistis by Jacobus Clemens non Papa, a composer beloved by early music specialists but not exactly a household name for lay listeners. However, the a cappella performances are consistently beautiful and soothing throughout, and the quietly joyous mood of the music fits the album's title perfectly. The 12-voice choir's blend is well-balanced and transparent, and the ambience of All Hallow's Church, Gospel Oak, London gives an ideal resonance for the group's small size and close miking.

«Beethoven ? But did he ever compose anything for the organ?» We do not know the exact answer to this question. Yet the theme of Beethoven’s relationship to the “King of Instruments” has time and again occupied, indeed fascinated musicologists, but above all organists. Why is this? Is it the hardly conceivable idea that the composer only wrote very little for the organ and above all – compared to his work overall – little of note? To supply proof that Beethoven bequeathed us compositions that – if indeed not expressly composed for organ – nonetheless may outstandingly be performed on the instrument of his youthful years for which he like many young people felt considerable fascination: such is the aim of the present recording…

Post-Punk | Label: Hardly Art

The third album from Detroit post-punk outfit Protomartyr ups the ante considerably from the first two. Their grim but compelling songs highlight a place where violence hovers constantly at the periphery, where peace and hope gradually curdle and turn ugly, and the desperate people who once clung to them eventually fall prey to their worst impulses.
