Violin Sonata no. 9 in A major, commonly known as the Kreutzer Sonata is a violin sonata Ludwig van Beethoven published in 1802 as his opus 47. It is known for its demanding violin part, unusual length (a typical performance lasts slightly less than 40 minutes), and emotional scope - while the first movement is predominantly furious, the second is meditative and the third joyous and exuberant.

Recorded: Berlin, Neue Heimat, 7 & 8 May 2015


Virtuoso violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter created a sensation at Berlin’s Neue Heimat venue, recreating the impact of her legendary 2013 Yellow Lounge appearance, when she attracted one of the biggest crowds in the history of Deutsche Grammophon’s ground-breaking “classical-goes-clubbing” series. Now she’s pushing the electric atmosphere to the limit by making the first-ever live Yellow Lounge recording.
The ‎ground-breaking project, co-produced by Deutsche Grammophon and ZDF, is set for global release in August, with German TV broadcasts in the summer and autumn, and a special documentary to follow in 2016.
Deutsche Grammophon President Mark Wilkinson welcomed Mutter’s return to the Yellow Lounge: “Last night, in Berlin, a part of classical music changed for ever. Anne-Sophie Mutter is breaking down boundaries, and taking risks without compromising her art – ultimately pushing on a door through which we hope others will follow.”
On stage with Mutter were her longtime accompanist Lambert Orkis, the Mutter Virtuosi – a hand-picked ensemble of young alumni of the Anne-Sophie Mutter Foundation – and star harpsichordist Mahan Esfahani, whose solo debut with Deutsche Grammophon is released this month. The programme spanned three centuries of classical music – from Bach and Vivaldi to Gershwin and John Williams – and was conceived by the violinist exclusively for this Yellow Lounge event and the accompanying album.
Yellow Lounge fuses the classical world and club culture, combining performances from stars of the former with cutting-edge DJ and VJ sets in urban spaces. On turntables this time were DJs Clé and Canisius, who’ve worked numerous Yellow Lounges, as has world-renowned VJ Philipp Geist, who was responsible for the stunning visuals.

Recorded at Sono Luminus, Boyce, Virginia, May 15-17, 2012

“American Anthem is a testament to our nation’s great composers, and one of the year’s most powerful chamber-music recordings.”—Strings magazine
American Anthem: The Music of Samuel Barber & Howard Hanson Sono Luminus has come together again with the amazing talent of the Ying Quartet, and is excited to release American Anthem: The Music of Samuel Barber & Howard Hanson. Bringing together musical selections that are truly expressive of the American spirit, this album also includes a selection from American composer Randall Thompson, and features pianist Adam Neiman and baritone Randall Scarlata. The package will be a 2-disc set, containing a Pure Audio Blu-ray™ Surround Sound disc as well as a standard CD.
What makes American music American? There have been many answers to that debate, both in music and in words. Samuel Barber was a composer who did not aim to write “American” music. Though Barber was born and raised in West Chester, PA, many observers note that he seemed equally if not more at home in Europe, in particular Italy and England. In fact, Gian Carlo Menotti, his longtime partner, said in an interview that Barber did not believe in being American and was not interested in Americana. Barber himself once criticized other composers’ works saying, “A collage of a little bit of this and that doesn’t make American music American.” And yet, now Barber is considered one of the most celebrated—certainly one of the most performed and recorded—American composers of all.
On the other hand, Howard Hanson has been described by some as, “the greatest protagonist for American music that has ever lived.” Indeed, in addition to his own compositions, Hanson claimed to have premiered over 2000 works by American composers through his Festivals of American Music, first in California and then for many years in Rochester, NY. Though Hanson enjoyed considerable success with his works during his lifetime, his chamber music now is rarely performed. Hanson’s own answer to the question of what American music is was to say that American music is nothing more than music by American composers. On this disc, we are pleased to present the major string quartet works of these two very important figures in American music of the first half of the 20th century.

Produced by Keith Richards and Don Was

My True Story finds Aaron Neville exploring the music he grew up with and adding a variety of twists along the way. The iconic soul/R&B vocalist and multi-GRAMMY® Award winner is making his debut on Blue Note Records. Produced by Don Was and Keith Richards, the album is a collection of twelve classic doo-wop tracks, sung by Neville’s spine-tingling vocals. Musicians on the album include Keith Richards, Greg Leisz (Beck, Sheryl Crow), Benmont Tench (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers), George G. Receli (Bob Dylan) and Tony Scherr (Bill Frisell, Norah Jones). Neville hand-selected each track on My True Story, which features tunes by Little Anthony and the Imperials (“Tears On My Pillow”), Hank Ballard and the Midnighters (“Work With Me Annie”) and The Drifters (“Money Honey,” “Under The Boardwalk,” “This Magic Moment”). To Neville, though, these songs weren’t just the soundtrack to his youth; they became the underpinning for all the remarkable music he has created across five decades.

Twin Danger - Twin Danger (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/44.1kHz


Artist: Twin Danger
Title: Twin Danger
Genre: Jazz, Contemporary Jazz, Jazz-Pop, Vocal Jazz, Smooth Jazz
Label: © Decca Records | Universal Music Classics

Noir jazz meets midnight blues on this debut from Twin Danger, an intriguing group formed by Vanessa Bley and Stuart Matthewman. It's a pedigreed duo: Bley is the daughter of renowned jazz pianist Paul Bley while Matthewman co–founded the group Sade and co-wrote several of the band's hits with lead singer Sade Adu. Twin Danger updates a classic sound in a contemporary style with Bley/Matthewman originals and one surprising cover song, a distinctively different interpretation of the rock track No One Knows by Queens of the Stone Age.

Third Reel - Many More Days (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz


Artist: Third Reel
Title: Many More Days
Genre: Jazz, Modern Creative, Contemporary Jazz
Label: © ECM Records GmbH | ECM Player
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: Qobuz
Duration: 00:41:21
Recorded: August 2014, Auditorio Stelio Molo RSI, Lugano


The second ECM album from Swiss/Italian trio Third Reel takes its open-plan music to another level. Emanuele Maniscalco, Nicolas Masson and Roberto Pianca all bring music into Third Reel, and each of them has his own distinct compositional signature, but from the outset their pieces are “always conceived as material for multiple, unpredictable developments,” as Maniscalco says. Compositional guidelines are like gateways into fields to explore. Masson’s elegant clarinet and lean-toned tenor are emphasized on this recording, Maniscalco floats between drums and piano, quietly lyrical on both instruments, and Pianca is most often a kind of real-time orchestrator, subtly enfolding the interaction with swelling sustained chords, or underlining it with thick drones.
Most of the first half of the album features primarily Emanuele Maniscalco’s compositions, and a chamber music feel, aligning the group on this showing to the reflective tradition of Giuffre and Bley – perhaps most evident on “Afterwards”, where Maniscalco’s rubato piano is shadowed by Masson’s clarinet. The second half of the programme is comprised mostly of Nicolas Masson’s pieces, including “White”, dedicated to Masabumi Kikuchi, as well as the album’s title track, its melody unfolded by a serpentine tenor line gaining steadily in power. Of Roberto Pianca’s pieces, “Lara’s Song” is a pensive ballad and “Happy People” less jolly than its title might imply, with active broken-time drums flickering behind a stately theme. Unusually for a group that takes chances with its material, Third Reel keeps things concise, none of the 13 pieces in the programme passing the five-minute mark.
Many More Days was recorded at Auditorio Stelio Molo RSI, Lugano, in August 2014 with Manfred Eicher as producer.
