My Morning Jacket - 2015-02-01 - One Big Holiday, Riviera Maya, MX (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/48kHz

Artist: My Morning Jacket
Title: 2015-02-01 - One Big Holiday, Riviera Maya, MX
Genre: Psychedelic rock, alternative rock, roots rock, indie rock, country rock, southern rock
Label: © My Morning Jacket
Release Date: 2015

Duration: 02:10:52
Recorded: 2/1/15 Hard Rock Hotel, One Big Holiday, Riviera Maya, MX

Starting in the late '90s and throughout the 2000s and 2010s, My Morning Jacket expanded on their rock and country roots, embracing everything from neo-psychedelia to funk, prog, and reggae in their sonic experimentation. By the time Evil Urges arrived in mid-2008, they had successfully molded themselves into Kentucky's answer to Wilco: a band rooted in alt-country and rock & roll, but given to sonic experimentation and unexpected genre changes at every turn.
My Morning Jacket's de facto leader is vocalist/guitarist Jim James (birth name: James Olliges; occasional pseudonym: Yim Yames), who founded the band in 1998 alongside his cousin Johnny Quaid (guitar), Tom Blankenship (bass), and J. Glenn (drums). Headquartered in James' hometown of Louisville, Kentucky, the group released its debut on Darla Records in 1999, with keyboardist Danny Cash joining the lineup one year later. Although The Tennessee Fire was only modestly popular in the U.S., it became a genuine hit overseas, particularly in the Netherlands. My Morning Jacket responded by launching a tour in Europe, where they were featured in a Dutch documentary film and received accolades from the Dutch music press. A Christmas EP was released in 2000, but it was My Morning Jacket's follow-up effort -- 2001's At Dawn -- that helped expand their audience at home. Jim James recorded his vocals in a grain silo, and the resulting reverb-heavy sound became a hallmark of the band's early work. After the album's stateside release, James' best friend from childhood, Patrick Hallahan, was recruited as the band's new drummer.
My Morning Jacket maintained a grueling schedule throughout the early 2000s, hitting the road with such acts as Guided by Voices, the Doves, and the Foo Fighters. They also made the jump to a major label (RCA/ATO Records) for the 2003 release of It Still Moves, one of their most praised albums yet. Quaid and Cash announced their departure in January 2004 (keyboardist Bo Koster and guitarist Carl Broemel joined in their place), and the group continued to tour as a unified five-piece. Produced by John Leckie, 2005's Z did away with the heavy reverb that blanketed the band's earlier efforts, while the addition of synthesizers and reggae textures introduced audiences to My Morning Jacket's experimental side. Tracks from Z also appeared on Okonokos, a live album released in 2006.
Arriving in June 2008, Evil Urges showcased James' expanding vocal range, his bandmates' fascination with Prince, and My Morning Jacket's eagerness to challenge the boundaries of alternative country-rock. After touring in support of the album, the bandmates spent several years pursuing their own projects, with Jim James joining the indie supergroup Monsters of Folk and Carl Broemel releasing a solo album. They reconvened for 2011's Circuital, recording the album in a local church's gymnasium and revisiting the quirky, eclectic sound that fueled their two previous albums. In the summer of 2013, My Morning Jacket hit the road as part of the Americanarama Festival of Music, a touring event in which they shared the bill with Bob Dylan and Wilco. In 2014, they booked time at Panoramic House Studios in Stinson Beach, California to begin work on a new album, aiming for a new spontaneity in their songwriting and embracing the mood of Northern California. The result, The Waterfall, was released in the spring of 2015. --Biography by Andrew Leahey

Mussorgsky - Pictures at an Exhibition / Schumann - Fantasie Op.17 - Paul Lewis (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Composer: Modest Petrovich Mussorgsky (1839-1881), Robert Schumann (1810-1856)
Artist: Paul Lewis
Title: Mussorgsky - Pictures at an Exhibition / Schumann - Fantasie Op.17
Genre: Classical
Label: © Harmonia Mundi
Release Date: 2015

Recorded: novembre 2010 et février 2014, Teldex Studio Berlin


In 1870, the architect, sculptor and painter Viktor Hartmann (born in 1834) was invited by Vladimir Stasov, the most influential Russian art critic of his time, to join the ‘Group of Five’, a St Petersburg-based circle of composers that, in addition to Mussorgsky, included Borodin, Balakirev, Cui, and Rimsky-Korsakov. The members of this ‘Mighty Handful’ had set themselves the spiritual task of establishing a national Russian music free of western influences. Just three years later, in August 1873, Hartmann died of an aneurysm; he was not yet 40. ‘What misfortune! O greatly suffering Russian art!’ wrote the deeply affected Mussorgsky, lamenting the loss of his friend. Along with Stasov, he championed the cause of a memorial exhibition in honour of his intellectual fellow-spirit. Stimulated by this much-admired retrospective, in the spring of 1874, which presented some 400 pictures from different phases of the artist’s creative career, Mussorgsky decided to erect a musical monument to the dead man as well. He threw himself feverishly into the work. When the piano cycle was completed on 22 June 1874, the manuscript bore the inscription: ‘Dedicated to Vladimir Vasilievich Stasov. Pictures at an Exhibition. In Memory of Viktor Hartmann.’ Mussorgsky created here something subtler and more ambivalent than Hartmann’s paintings might suggest.
Alongside the dazzling virtuosity they call for, Paul Lewis’s unexpected coupling reveals the purely musical qualities of these two 19th-century masterpieces.
Lewis's latest recording, Schubert's Late Piano Sonatas, completed his acclaimed Schubert cycle, prompting Gramophone to call him 'one of the great Schubertians of our time.' The album reached No. 9 on the Billboard Classical Chart and made The 2014 Want List in Fanfare Magazine. His multi-award winning discography for harmonia mundi includes the complete Beethoven piano sonatas, concertos, and the Diabelli Variations, Liszt's B minor Sonata and other late works, and all of Schubert's major piano works from the last six years of his life, including the 3 song cycles with tenor Mark Padmore.

'Time and again, you marvel at the confidence and sureness of Lewis's playing... It's the kind of playing, in fact, where comparisons cease to matter.' --Gramophone

Felix Mendelssohn - The Complete Solo Piano Music, Vol. 3 - Howard Shelley (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Felix Mendelssohn (1809-1847)
Artist: Howard Shelley
Title: Mendelssohn - The Complete Solo Piano Music, Vol. 3
Genre: Classical
Label: © Hyperion Records
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: hyperion-records
Duration: 64 minutes 32 seconds
Recorded: April 2014 at St Silas the Martyr, Kentish Town, London, United Kingdom


One of the very great pianists of the nineteenth century, Felix Mendelssohn Bartholdy (1809–1847) achieved legendary status for his performances and improvisations alike, though his piano compositions generally have not withstood comparison with the very best keyboard music of the century. The one piano sonata he published was deemed not to have broken new ground after Beethoven’s path-breaking thirty-two; he created no large-scale cyclic works comparable to Robert Schumann’s hybrid literary/musical fantasies for the instrument; his meticulously crafted Lieder ohne Worte exuded for many a refined romanticism not as soul-searching as the miniatures of Chopin or Brahms; and nowhere did his technical demands on the pianist challenge the Promethean exertions of Liszt.

McCoy Tyner - McCoy Tyner with Stanley Clarke and Al Foster (2000) High-Fidelity DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz


Artist: McCoy Tyner
Title: McCoy Tyner with Stanley Clarke and Al Foster
Genre: Jazz, Post-Bop, Piano Jazz
Label: © Telarc
Release Date: 2000 (CD-63488-SA)
Quality: DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz
Source: ISO SACD
Duration: 01'05'36
Recorded: (DSD recording) Clinton Recording Studio "B", New York City, April 27-28, 1999

One of the musical highlights of the new millennium is already here: McCoy Tyner with Stanley Clarke and Al Foster, the follow-up to the legendary pianist's critically-acclaimed Telarc debut, McCoy Tyner and the Latin All-Stars. On this new release, McCoy Tyner explores the art of the trio, with a dynamic set of 11 tracks that features new tunes from Tyner and Clarke.
McCoy Tyner with Stanley Clarke and Al Foster is a clear indication that Tyner's interests lie firmly in the future, and in his own compositions. In addition to two takes of "I Want to Tell You 'Bout That" (the first with Clarke on electric bass, the next on acoustic), other Tyner compositions include "Trane-like," "Once Upon A Time," "Goin' 'Way Blues," "Carriba" and "Memories." Tyner's unique and blazing interpretations of standards are apparent in his renditions of "Never Let Me Go" and "Will You Still Be Mine." Another highlight is Clarke's own "In the Tradition Of."
McCoy Tyner is assured of a major position in any jazz history of the 20th century—a versatile composer, arranger and leader whose distinctive sound looms over entire generations. He was born in Philadelphia in 1938 when Bud Powell, Benny Golson (and of course, John Coltrane) and many others were in the neighborhood. And Tyner is the only jazz giant to have honed his craft in, of all places, his mother's beauty parlor in West Philadelphia—jamming among the hair dryers and curling irons.
Stanley Clarke (born in 1951) is also from Philly, and on this project he plays mostly acoustic bass. Well known for his work with Return to Forever and as a trailblazing solo artist, Clarke continues to revolutionize his instrument. A first-generation fusion player who is constantly shifting directions, this project offers a rare opportunity to hear his more straight-ahead playing.
McCoy Tyner with Stanley Clarke and Al Foster is a brilliant second installment of Tyner's work on Telarc. Both discs make it clear that the undeniable talents of McCoy Tyner continue growing greater with time.

Marie-Pierre Langlamet, Anna Prohaska, Ludwig Quandt, Lara St. John - Schubert (2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Franz Schubert (1797-1828)

Title: Schubert
Genre: Classical

Ancalagon Records proudly announces its new SACD release, Schubert, featuring Berlin Philharmonic principal harpist Marie-Pierre Langlamet, Deutsche Gramophone recording artist Anna Prohaska, soprano, Berlin Philharmonic principal cellist Ludwig Quandt, and Lara St. John, violin.
This second recording collaboration between Ancalagon Records and Langlamet gives a portrait of Schubert’s life from early to late in his short, prolific career. Langlamet does not arrange the keyboard parts, but performs them exactly as written by Schubert.
“Had Schubert lived into the era of the double-action pedal harp, I am quite certain he would have written his Harfner songs and Arpeggione sonata to be paired with this instrument,” says St. John, “not to mention the extraordinary aural filigree herein possible with his impromptus and the whirling wheel of Gretchen, spun by Marie-Pierre.”

Gustav Mahler - Symphony No. 5 in C-sharp minor - Budapest Festival Orchestra, Ivan Fischer (2013) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Сomposer: Gustav Mahler (1860-1911)
Artist: Budapest Festival Orchestra, Iván Fischer
Title: Mahler - Symphony No. 5 in C-sharp minor
Genre: Classical
Label: © Channel Classics Records
Release Date: 2013
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit

Duration: 01:14:12
Recorded: September 2012, Palace of Arts, Budapest, Hungary

After the highly acclaimed recordings of Mahler Symphonies no. 1, 2, 4 and 6 Iván Fischer and his Budapest Festival Orchestra now recorded the Fifth Sympony with its famous Adagietto in F major for strings and harp - one of the most intimate pieces that Mahler ever wrote for the orchestra.
According to Fischer the Fifth is “the most Jewish of all Mahler's symphonies. The first movement takes us to the unmistakable mood of Jewish lamentation, the finale to the childlike vision of messianic joy.”
Iván Fischer is founder and Music Director of the Budapest Festival Orchestra. This partnership has become one of the greatest success stories in the past 25 years of classical music. Intense international touring and a series of acclaimed recordings for Philips Classics, later for Channel Classics have contributed to Iván Fischer’s reputation as one of the world’s most visionary and successful orchestra leaders.
