The Knights - the ground beneath our feet (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Various
Artist: The Knights
Title: the ground beneath our feet
Genre: Classical
Label: © Warner Classics
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Duration: 01:15:21
Recorded live at Dumbarton Oaks, Washington, DC, October 7-8, 2013.

Recorded live in concert at Dumbarton Oaks in DC, to commemorate the 75th anniversary of Stravinsky’s chamber concerto at the Washington estate for which it was originally named, 'the ground beneath our feet' brings together radically divergent examples of the concerto grosso, by composers ranging from Bach and Haydn to those of the present day, by way of modern masters Stravinsky and Steve Reich. True to their collegial creed, The Knights’ own contribution to the form – the title track, …the ground beneath our feet, recorded here for the first time – is a genuine group composition, collaborative from inception to interpretation. Also receiving its world premiere recording is the Concerto for Santur, Violin, and Orchestra, which represents the third collaboration between longtime friends and musical partners Colin Jacobsen and Siamak Aghaei, leading exponent of the Iranian santur, or hammered dulcimer. The Knights juxtapose these two original concerto grossi with four earlier examples of the form. Representing its apotheosis in the Baroque is the Concerto for Violin and Oboe by J.S. Bach, whose third Brandenburg Concerto provided the model for Stravinsky’s neoclassical masterpiece “Dumbarton Oaks.” Steve Reich’s Duet for Two Violins and Strings is dedicated to Yehudi Menuhin and “the ideals of international understanding which he practiced throughout his life.”

Tame Impala - Currents (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/44.1kHz

Artist: Tame Impala
Title: Currents
Genre: Pop Rock, Neo-Psychedelia, Electronic, Alternative/Indie Rock
Label: © Interscope/Modular Recordings
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 44,1kHz/24bit
Duration: 00:51:14
Recorded: 2013–2015, Fremantle, Western Australia

Currents is the third studio album by Australian psychedelic rock act Tame Impala, to be released on 17 July 2015 on Interscope Records. Like the group's previous two albums, Currents was written, recorded, performed, and produced by primary member Kevin Parker.
In contrast to the psychedelic rock sound of those albums, Currents marks a shift to more dance-oriented music, with more emphasis placed on synthesizers than guitars. Parker was inspired to seek a change out of desire to hear Tame Impala's music played in dance clubs and after an emotional experience listening to the Bee Gees' "Stayin' Alive". Thematically, the record is about the process of personal transformation. Parker said, "It follows the progression of someone feeling like they are becoming something else. They're becoming the kind of person they thought they'd never become." For Currents, Parker returned to the seaside house in which he recorded the group's first album, Innerspeaker (2010).

Artist: Sébastien Llinares

Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 88,2kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 01:06:00
Recorded: November 2013 at Château de Chabenet.

Sébastien Llinares performs the works of Henri Sauguet and Pierre Wissmer, where the heart seems to beat beneath fingers conquered by this music, “there”: a black and white photograph of France’s harmonic terroirs – danced steps from the musical heritage of the provinces that shaped us – elegantly draped in melismatic creases by Chanel, signed Dior, Lanvin or Jean Patou… Here the eye listens to a 21st century French music-painting, a natural balance between Henri Sauguet’s melodic harmonies and the discontinuous continuity of Pierre Wissmer’s rhythmic counterpoint.

Ryan Adams covers Taylor Swift's 2014 album 1989. While listening to Taylor Swift's record, Adams thought how he would have done the songs. "I was listening to that record and thinking, 'I hear more,'" he said. "Not that there was anything missing. I would just think about the sentiments in the songs and the configurations."

Rush - Grace Under Pressure - 40th Anniversary (1984/2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/48kHz

Artist: Rush
Title: Grace Under Pressure - 40th Anniversary
Genre: Rock, Prog Rock, Hard Rock
Label: © Mercury Records
Release Date: 1984/2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 48kHz/24bit
Duration: 39:42
Recorded: November 1983 – March 1984 at Le Studio in Morin-Heights, Quebec

Largely considered one of Rush’s darkest albums, the million-selling Grace Under Pressure was a response to growing tensions in the Cold War in the 1980s. The album’s running theme is “pressure” and how humans act under its influence. Despite the bleakness of the songs, the band balances elements of ska, funk and reggae and an increasing use of synthesizers and electronics with consistently strong songwriting and typical instrumental virtuosity.

Richard Hawley - Hollow Meadows (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/44.1kHz

Label: © Parlophone Records
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 44,1kHz/24bit

Recorded: Recorded by Colin Elliot at Yellow Arch Studios, Sheffield and Shez Sheridan in Disgracelands, Sheffield. Track 8 recorded and mixed at Mu studios, The Laundry Rooms, Sheffield.

Following the success of his hugely acclaimed 2012 Top Three album, Standing At The Sky’s Edge, Richard Hawley will release his eighth studio album Hollow Meadows via Parlophone Records.
Recorded at Sheffield’s Yellow Arch Studio in spring 2015, Hollow Meadows sees Hawley return to the classic, sophisticated songwriting and subtle arrangements that made him so widely loved and revered in the first place. Meditating on such themes as ageing, fallibility and relationships, much of the album shares a brooding, yet wistful and romantic atmosphere in keeping with early albums Late Night Final and Lowedges, as well as touches of 2009’s Truelove’s Gutter (‘Nothing Like A Friend’) and Standing At The Sky’s Edge (‘Which Way’, ‘Welcome The Sun’).
Hollow Meadows is an album full of exceptional songwriting, beautiful melodies and harmonies, and some of the finest lyrics and vocals Hawley as ever written and recorded. It will further cement his reputation as one of Britain’s greatest songwriters of the past 15 years.

Rachmaninov Variations - Daniil Trifonov (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Sergey Vasil'yevich Rachmaninov (1873-1943)
Artist: Daniil Trifonov
Title: Rachmaninov Variations
Genre: Classical
Label: © Deutsche Grammophon
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Duration: 01:19:43
Recorded: Academy of Arts & Letters, New York City, 3/2015 (Chopin & Corelli Variations, Rachmaniana); Kimmel Center for the Performing Arts, Verizon Hall, Philadelphia, 3/2015 (Rhapsody)

While Sergey Rachmaninov is justly celebrated for his piano concertos and symphonies, his sets of variations shouldn't be overlooked, for they are among his most inventive and satisfying works. Russian pianist Danil Trifonov plays the Rhapsody on a Theme of Paganini, the Variations on a Theme of Chopin, and the Variations on a Theme of Corelli on this 2015 Deutsche Grammophon release, and he offers his own special tribute to the composer in his solo piano suite, Rachmaniana. For the Rhapsody, Trifonov is joined by Yannick Nézet-Séguin and the Philadelphia Orchestra, an ensemble that counts historic performances with Rachmaninov as part of its heritage, and plays with its characteristic lush sound and passionate expression. Trifonov is brilliant and precise in the Rhapsody, collaborating fully with the orchestra and sharing the spotlight as much as possible in such a showpiece. Yet in the solo variations, he is able to stretch out and demonstrate his gift for deeply expressive playing, as well as a talent for fantasy in his own composition. The reproduction throughout this CD is transparent and finely detailed, though the Rhapsody offers the most vibrant and spacious sound. --AllMusic Review by Blair Sanderson

Sergei Rachmaninov - Symphony No 3 / Mily Balakirev - Russia - London Symphony Orchestra, Valery Gergiev (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Sergei Rachmaninov (1873–1943), Mily Balakirev (1837–1910)
Artist: London Symphony Orchestra, Valery Gergiev
Title: Shostakovich - Symphony No. 5
Genre: Classical
Label: © LSO Live
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Duration: 56 minutes 30 seconds
Recorded live in DSD 128fs at the Barbican, November 2014

Following acclaimed LSO Live recordings of Rachmaninov’s Symphony No 2 and Symphonic Dances, Valery Gergiev conducts a scintillating account of the powerfully emotional Third Symphony, framed with a work by one of the Mighty Five; Balakirev’s Russia.
Rachmaninov’s third and final symphony was composed nearly 20 years after the composer’s emigration from his homeland. Often considered to be his most overtly Russian symphony, Rachmaninov makes subtle use of a motto theme which appears throughout the work and can be heard in the finale as a variant of the Dies Irae plainchant – a melodic tag used in Rachmaninov’s music as a dark reminder of mortality.
Russia, the epic symphonic poem, is a reworking of an Overture on Russian Themes, collected during Balakirev’s expedition up through the Volga. It was composed in 1864 and is based on three folksongs – a slow wedding song and two round-dances which are varied, fragmented and combined throughout the piece.
