The reconfigured Bobo Stenson Trio in a performance of characteristically wide arc. Material this time includes original compositions, group improvising and pieces by Peter Eben, Alban Berg, Ornette Coleman, Don Cherry, and Silvio Rodriguez. Master pianist Stenson, long term bassist Anders Jormin and alertly responsive young drummer Jon Fält have developed a richly detailed sound-world like nothing else in modern jazz – at once an extension of the jazz piano tradition and, with its windows opening onto classical music and world folklore, a force apart from it.

Hector Berlioz - Symphonie fantastique - Berliner Philharmoniker, Sir Simon Rattle (2008/2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/44.1kHz

Сomposer: Hector Berlioz (1803-1869)
Artist: Berliner Philharmoniker, Sir Simon Rattle
Title: Berlioz - Symphonie fantastique
Genre: Classical
Label: © Warner Classics, Warner Music UK Ltd.
Release Date: 2008/2014
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 44,1kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 01:15:59
Recorded: 30.V–1.VI.2008, Jesus-Christus-Kirche, Berlin-Dahlem

Any mention of the name Hector Berlioz inevitably brings to mind his most famous work, the Symphonie fantastique. Written in 1830, the year of the ‘July Revolution’ that defeated the post-Napoleonic monarchy in France, this symphony (Berlioz’s first) is itself a revolution in sound and concept. Here we see the 27-year-old composer taking a bold step into the future, rejecting the symphonic canon of the past, and creating in its place a new hybrid genre that blended elements drawn from the world of opera with more traditional forms and compositional devices belonging to the world of instrumental concert music. Berlioz referred to this unique genre – part symphony, part opera – as the ‘dramatic symphony’.
The programme depicts a lovesick artist (by implication, Berlioz), who, in a fit of unrequited love, tries to end his suffering by taking an overdose of opium. But instead of killing him, the drug sends him into a wild, hallucinatory dream, the subject of which is a series of episodes in his tormented relationship with the object of his affections (by implication, Harriet Smithson). Throughout the symphony Harriet is represented by a single theme, which Berlioz called the idée fixe (fixed idea). It is first heard as the primary theme of the sonata-form first movement, and then reappears in each of the following movements, effectively unifying the various episodes of the hero’s life.

This is an ear-shattering performance of a masterpiece by the legendary composer Beethoven. His Missa Solemnis was written to inspire feelings of profound enlightenment executed brilliantly by this cast of exquisite musicians. Otto Klemperer built a formidable reputation as one of the greatest conductors of the twentieth century and he is joined by Elisabeth Soderstrom, Marga Hoffgen, Waldemar Kmentt, Martti Talvela and the New Philharmonia Orchestra and Chorus. Klemperer’s command of the score and control of the orchestra is magnificent and the soloists display masterful virtuosity. Absolutely essential.

Johann Sebastian Bach - Goldberg Variations - Lars Vogt (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/48kHz

Сomposer: Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750)
Artist: Lars Vogt
Title: Bach, J.S. - Goldberg Variations
Genre: Classical
Label: © Deutschlandradio/Ondine Oy, Helsinki
Release Date: 2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 48kHz/24bit
Source: Qobuz
Duration: 01:16:20
Recorded: 24–26 March, 2014, Deutschlandfunk Kammermusiksaal, Köln, Germany

Pianist Lars Vogt presents one of the classic works of the Baroque repertoire - Johann Sebastian Bach's (1685-1750) famous Goldberg Variations.
Originally written for the harpsichord the Goldberg Variations, published in 1741, embody an Aria with 30 variations and a coda. Bach wrote the work for Johann Gottlieb Goldberg, who, as the narrative says, often played music as a cure for Count Kaiserling's insomnia. Apparently the work was one of the successes that Bach had during his lifetime and it was also published during his lifetime.
Lars Vogt was appointed the first ever "Pianist in Residence" by the Berlin Philharmonic in 2003/04 and enjoys a high profile as a soloist and chamber musician.
