Sviatoslav Richter Plays Prokofiev, Debussy and Chopin - Live at Mosque Theatre, December 28, 1960, Part II (2015) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/88,2kHz

Сomposer: Frédéric Chopin (1810–1849), Sergei Prokofiev (1891–1953), Claude Debussy (1862–1918)
Artist: Sviatoslav Richter
Title: Sviatoslav Richter Plays Prokofiev, Debussy and Chopin - Live at Mosque Theatre, December 28, 1960, Part II
Genre: Classical
Label: © RCA Records/Sony Music Entertainment
Release Date: 1965/2015

Duration: 00:41:22
Recorded: Mosque Theatre, December 28, 1960


Sony Classcial celebrates the art of Sviatoslav Richter (1995-1997) – one of the 20th century’s greatest pianists – with the first-ever release of his complete Columbia Masterworks and RCA Victor live and studio recordings in an 18 CD original jacket edition, underneath Richter’s legendary five October 1960 Carnegie Hall recitals.
Richter was already a legend in his native Soviet Union when he concertized in the West for the first time in 1960. Richter’s American tour that year not only consolidated the pianist’s international reputation, but also resulted the memorable recordings gathered together in this collection.
Richter’s five October 1960 Carnegie Hall recitals showcased the breadth of his repertoire from Haydn and Beethoven to Debussy and Rachmaninoff, with one program completely devoted to Prokofiev, a composer with whom Richter worked closely. Indeed, Richter’s success inspired Arthur Rubinstein’s ten-concert Carnegie Hall marathon the following season. The series yielded nine LPs, including two that only were released in Japan. Long treasured as rare collectors’ items, they appear here for the first time on CD mastered from the original analogue tapes.
Along with the December 26th Carnegie Hall recital brought out by RCA in 2001 as Richter reDiscovered, Richter’s December 28th Newark Mosque Theater recital receives its first integral release. The pianist’s 1960 RCA studio solo and concerto sessions, too, are justly acclaimed, and feature highly distinctive accounts of Brahms’s Second Concerto, Beethoven’s First Concerto, and three Beethoven sonatas.
Two RCA discs from 1988 concerts return to the catalog, revealing the veteran pianist’s undiminished power and concentration in Brahms’ early C major Piano Sonata, selections by Liszt, Etudes from Chopin’s Op. 10, plus a new recording of the Beethoven First Concerto. As a bonus, three Schubert works released in a 1977 Aldeburgh Festival anthology make their CD debut.

Igor Stravinsky - Pulcinella Suite; Apollon musagete; Concerto in D for strings - Tapiola Sinfonietta, Masaaki Suzuki (2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Igor Stravinsky (1882–1971)
Artist: Tapiola Sinfonietta, Masaaki Suzuki
Title: Stravinsky - Pulcinella Suite; Apollon musagète; Concerto in D for strings
Genre: Classical
Label: © BIS Records
Release Date: 2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: eClassical
Duration: 64:55
Recorded: April 2015 at the Tapiola Concert Hall, Finland

Masaaki Suzuki is firmly established as a leading authority on the works of Bach, both in his capacity as director of the Bach Collegium Japan and as an organist and harpsichordist. In recent years he has also been appearing in front of eminent orchestras worldwide, however, conducting repertoire as diverse as Britten, Fauré or Mahler. For his first recording of 20th century repertoire, Suzuki has chosen to collaborate with the acclaimed Tapiola Sinfonietta in an all-Stravinsky programme. The disc begins with the music for Pulcinella – here in the concert suite devised by the composer – which Stravinsky later described as ‘the epiphany through which the whole of my later work became possible’. Pulcinella was commissioned in 1919 by the Ballets Russes, for which Stravinsky had already written The Firebird, Petrushka and The Rite of Spring. For this adaptation of an early eighteenth-century commedia dell'arte libretto, he based his score on existing music, initially ascribed to Pergolesi although material by other baroque composers is also included. Stravinsky’s approach is never that of a faithful transcriber, however: in Pulcinella the material is slanted harmonically, rhythmically and texturally in a manner reminiscent of cubism – and it was indeed Picasso who provided the decor and costumes for the ballet's first performance. The neoclassical (or neobaroque) spirit remained a vital part of Stravinsky’s compositional armoury for a long time, and also informs the other two works presented here. The formal design of Concerto in D, composed some 25 years after Pulcinella, pays homage to the baroque concerti grossi of Vivaldi and Bach, while the score for the ballet Apollon musagète (also known as Apollo) contains references to French music from the 17th- and 18th-century – but there are also echoes of Tchaikovskian lushness in the work which is richly scored for a string orchestra which is often subdivided, and with many distinctions between solo and tutti lines.

Steve Kuhn, Steve Swallow, Joey Baron - Wisteria (2012) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/88,2kHz

Artist: Steve Kuhn, Steve Swallow, Joey Baron
Title: Wisteria
Genre: Jazz, Straight-Ahead Jazz, Modern Creative, Piano Jazz
Label: © ECM Records GmbH | ECM Player | ECM Reviews
Release Date: 2012
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 88,2kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 01:07:02
Recorded: September 2011 at Avatar Studios, New York


Wisdom and wistfulness are intertwined in “Wisteria”, whose title track, written by Art Farmer, takes us back to the early 60s, when both Steve Kuhn and Steve Swallow sang softly of the blues in the trumpeter-flugelhornist’s band. They’ve shared a lot of history since then. Swallow played on Kuhn’s classic “Trance”; Kuhn played on Swallow’s “Home” and “So There”. Drummer Joey Baron has been heard with Kuhn on ECM discs including “Remembering Tomorrow” and the dazzling tribute disc “Mostly Coltrane”. This new album takes a fresh look at several pieces heard in Kuhn’s orchestral “Promises Kept” collection, but alongside the aching balladry there is also some driving hard bop (on “A Likely Story”) , a brace of Swallow tunes (“Dark Glasses”), Carla Bley’s gospel-tinged “Permanent Wave” and the Brazilian “Romance” by Dori Caymmi…

Sonic Youth - Washing Machine (1995/2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Artist: Sonic Youth
Title: Washing Machine
Genre: Rock, Alternative/Indie Rock, Experimental Rock, Noise-Rock, Grunge
Label: © DGC/Geffen Records
Release Date: 1995/2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 01:08:17
Recorded: January – May 1995 at Easley Studios in Memphis, Tennessee and Mott and Greene Street Studios in New York City


Sonic Youth's ninth album Washing Machine is the first record to almost exclusively feature Kim on guitar rather than bass, and contains some of their lengthiest material since "Goo" and "Daydream Nation", including the epic "The Diamond Sea" which drifts onward for an unprecedented 20 minutes, still the longest track on any SY album (excluding the SYR releases). Incidentally, "The Diamond Sea" would prove to be one of the band's most popular songs, and it along with SY's headlining spot on the summer Lollapalooza tour would introduce legions of new fans to their music.
