Duration: 11:04:15
Recording: 1967-1971, Residenz, Herkulessaal, Munich, Germany & Deutsches Museum, Kongress-Saal, Munich, Germany (Symphony No.8)


Rafael Kubelik's highly chromatic, poetic Mahler recordings have been staples in Deutsche Grammophon's catalogue since their inception. Tempos overall tend to be quicker than the norm (Symphony No. 8 for instance fits conveniently on one CD), yet never at the expense of glossing over the composers renowned wealth of inner details. Many Mahler aficionados still regard Kubelik's readings here of the Symphonies No. 1 and No. 7 as reference recordings. Distinguished soloists include Dietrich Fischer-Dieskau, Edith Mathis, Norma Proctor, Franz Crass, and Julia Hamari. The Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra as well as the various outstanding choirs employed throughout the cycle couldn't be more in sync with Kubelik's inspired visionary interpretations.

This live album features the third incarnation of the Mack Avenue SuperBand, an all-star group drawn from the superb roster of the Mack Avenue label. Once again, this ensemble joined forces under the leadership of bassist Rodney Whitaker to dazzle a Detroit crowd in Hart Plaza, with the results captured on this recording. Joining Whitaker are three-time veterans Aaron Diehl on piano, drummer Carl Allen and guitarist Evan Perri of the Hot Club of Detroit. Alto saxophonist Tia Fuller returns from the SuperBand’s debut outing, while vibraphonist Warren Wolf and tenor saxophonist Kirk Whalum make it two in a row. Regardless of the personnel from year to year, the SuperBand comprises a distinctive blend of generations and styles, reflecting the diversity of the label itself.

Composed in 2012-13, »let me tell« you is a half-hour dramatic monologue, voiced by a character who requires us to hear her. That character is not quite the Ophelia of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. She has the same words, her entire text being made up from words Ophelia speaks in the play, but she uses these words in different ways, and certainly to express herself differently.

Title: Haydn & Scarlatti - Chiaro E Scuro

Recorded: 4-6/01/2015, Sendesaal, Bremen

An original programme with which the Swiss pianist Olivier Cavé succeeds in summarizing two universes that might, however, a priori appear remote: Domenico Scarlatti vs. Joseph Haydn. In the same album, Olivier Cavé confronts two complementary visions of the keyboard. ‘With this project, I wanted to connect these two composers,’ he tells us, ‘for, when playing Haydn, I always had the feeling that he was familiar with Scarlatti’s music.’ For these two composers, the keyboard is the alphabet of a distinctive language; in a style both playful and mischievous, they composed with a bantering humour, unlimited amusement, unfailing virtuosity and a perfect sense of description. Paradoxically, the two composers meet in their slow movements, of unparalleled simplicity and amazing naturalness that give this music, generations apart, very great lyrical depth. This recording shows to what degree the impact of Scarlatti’s music on Haydn’s keyboard compositions is undeniable. For this project, Olivier Cavé has relied on the learned advice of the American musicologist Elaine Sisman.
