Yo-Yo Ma, Kathryn Stott - Songs from the Arc of Life (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Сomposer: Various
Artist: Yo-Yo Ma, Kathryn Stott
Title: Songs from the Arc of Life
Genre: Classical
Label: © Sony Music Entertainment
Release Date: 2015

Duration: 01:07:45
Recorded: March 28, 30 & 31, 2015 at Mechanics Hall in Worcester, MA

Cellist Yo-Yo Ma and pianist Kathryn Stott create a unique classical music experience with their new Sony Classical recording Songs from the Arc of Life available September 18, 2015. This all-new recording also celebrates thirty years of friendship and collaboration in concerts and recordings for Ma and Stott. The album includes pieces they have frequently performed but never recorded, as well as a handful of discoveries.
"I like to think of Songs from the Arc of Life as an invitation to our audience to remember and imagine what the soundtracks of their lives might be," Yo-Yo Ma says. "Kathy and I have talked for years about recording an album of music we absolutely love, pieces that express the context of a life, of our lives. Childhood, adolescence, young adulthood, middle age, old age: what do they sound like?"
"I love this title," Stott says, "the 'Arc of Life' – because it is one big arc. Once we arrived at the idea, we began to see a beautiful story, a journey through life's experiences. It has taken us a long time and much discussion, back and forth, to discover what that journey might be, because everyone's journey is slightly different."
Songs from the Arc of Life begins and ends with two, much-beloved settings of the traditional "Ave Maria," opening with the soaring, radiant Bach/Gounod arrangement and closing with Schubert's more serene, contemplative version.
In between is a remarkable spectrum of music that includes such enduring favorites as Brahms' "Lullaby," Dvorak's "Songs My Mother Taught Me," Elgar's "Salut d'amour," Gade's "Jalousie" and Saint-Saens' "The Swan," as well as richly evocative works by Debussy, Delius, Faure, Gershwin, Grieg, Kriesler, Messaien, Schumann, Sibelius and Tchaikovsky. Ma and Stott also include a haunting piece by the contemporary composer Giovanni Sollima, a friend and colleague of both artists.
In addition to beginning his fourth decade of collaboration with Stott, Yo-Yo Ma is celebrating a milestone birthday this year. "Turning sixty has me wondering what the future might bring, but also reflecting on what has passed," Ma says. "Kathy and I have known one another since we were in our twenties. We have a shared performing history and thousands of conversations and experiences and we're delighted, through Songs from the Arc of Life, to share them with you."

Willie Dixon - I Am The Blues (1969/2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Artist: Willie Dixon
Title: I Am The Blues
Genre: Blues, Electric Chicago Blues, Piano Blues, Jive, Jump Blues
Label: © Columbia Records, a Division of Sony Music Entertainment
Release Date: 1969/2015
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 43:56
Recorded: 1954-1962

Originally released in 1969, this album has the legendary songwriter singing nine of his classics as his hand-picked Chicago band makes the changes. Dixon's nothing special, even if he is the blues personified, since his dryly charming voice lacks tonal inflections and his way with rhythm is less than fluent. Whatever glimmers of expressivity these performances have are due to harp player Carey Bell. In spite of Mobile Fidelity's exemplary sound technology, the instruments at the original session sound like mysterious things thumping on the roof in the dead of night.
