Despite its reputation as one of the most exciting live bands to ever rock an arena in the Seventies, Bad Company never released a live album during its meteoric rise to the top of the charts. That has changed as Rhino introduces the first-ever official live album to spotlight the original Bad Company line up: Paul Rodgers, Mick Ralphs, Simon Kirke and Boz Burrell.
The collection includes more than two-and-half hours of unreleased music taken from 24-track tapes in the band’s vault. The music heard on this live collection features absolutely no enhancements or overdubs, nothing but the band as they performed live on the night of the concert.

The Christmas Oratorio is a series of 6 separate cantatas, collectively relating the story from Christmas through to Twelfth Night. Bach wrote the work in Leipzig in 1734 and 1735 for Christmas Day (I), Boxing day (II), the third day of Christmas (III), New Year (IV), the Sunday after New Year (V) and Twelfth Night (VI). As with the Passions, the texts here are drawn from three sources: (1) the evangelical texts (primarily Luke and Matthew) intoned by the Evangelist (tenor) as recitatives, (2) chorales from the Lutheran tradition and (3) free texts for arias and some choral passages, written by the poet Picander.

Johann Sebastian Bach - The Brandenburg Concertos and Orchestral Suites - Bach Collegium Japan, Masaaki Suzuki (2009) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/44,1kHz

Сomposer: Johann Sebastian Bach (1685–1750)
Artist: Bach Collegium Japan, Masaaki Suzuki
Title: Bach, J.S. - The Brandenburg Concertos and Orchestral Suites
Genre: Classical
Label: © BIS Records
Release Date: 2009
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 44,1kHz/24bit (#20-43 - 88,2kHz/24bit)
Source: eClassical
Duration: 201:02
Recorded: June 2008 at the MUZA Kawasaki Symphony Hall, Japan (Brandenburg Concertos) and October 2003 at Kobe Shoin Women’s University, Japan (Orchestral Suites)


Bach Collegium Japan was first noticed internationally for undertaking the huge project of recording the complete church cantatas of J. S. Bach. Although the ensemble’s discography consists of predominately vocal works, the participating instrumentalists have attracted acclaim ever since the outset. On the present offering, it is Bach’s two great sets of orchestral works that form the programme and the choir of the BCJ is silent. Bach Collegium Japan and Masaaki Suzuki first recorded the Brandenburg Concertos in 2000, but now return to these great works. The new recording took place in the recently completed MUZA Kawasaki Hall, a venue that is highly suitable to an approach focussing on the chamber music qualities of this music. In four of the concertos Masaaki Suzuki has chosen to replace the traditional cello with the violoncello da spalla – a smaller instrument played horizontally on the shoulder or held against the breast. The instrument has already featured in the BCJ Cantata series, and opens for new possibilities in timbre, for instance in Concerto No. 6, where the violoncello da spalla blends particularly well with the two solo violas and the viola da gambas.

Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach - Volume 2 - Ophelie Gaillard, Pulcinella Orchestra (2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (1714-1788)
Artist: Ophélie Gaillard, Pulcinella Orchestra
Title: Bach C.P.E. - Volume 2
Genre: Classical
Label: © Aparté/Little Tribeca
Release Date: 2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: Qobuz
Duration: 01:20:59
Recorded: 7, 8, 9 et 10 septembre 2015 à Paris église luthérienne de Bon Secours

After the success of their first volume Ophélie Gaillard and Pulcinella propose a second disc devoted to Johann Sebastian Bach's most talented and surprising son, Carl Philipp Emanuel (1714-1788). The Sinfonia in C major expresses multiple emotions, ranging from irrepressible suffering in the Adagio to joyous release and insouciance in the concluding Allegretto, tinged with near-Mozartian grace. The Cello Concerto in B flat reveals the influence of the waning Baroque era and Vivaldi in particular. The Sinfonia in E minor, nicknamed 'Fandango' and dating from his Berlin years, is commonly regarded as one of his finest symphonies. The particularly virtuosic Sonata for cello piccolo and keyboard shows to advantage the two soloists of this recording: Ophélie Gaillard and Francesco Corti, whose fieriness is further revealed in the Harpsichord Concerto in D minor.

'Testament' is Rachel Barton Pine's very personal homage to the music of J. S. Bach, on which she performs the composer's complete Sonatas and Partitas for Solo Violin in the acoustic of her hometown St. Pauls Church in Chicago, where she first heard and fell in love with Bach's music.
Best-selling violinist Rachel Barton Pine's relationship with the music of Bach runs deep. She first heard and fell in love with Bach's music in her hometown St. Pauls Church in Chicago, which had a stained glass window of the composer in the sanctuary. That church is where Rachel first played Bach's music, at the age of four, and where she returned to record Bach's Six Sonatas and Partitas in its beautiful yet clear acoustic. Rachel says, "I'm so pleased to have recorded the Six Sonatas and Partitas in my favourite sound space for these works, the place that I consider to truly be my emotional home for playing them."

Warner Classics is proud to present the Annie Moses Band, a wonderfully innovative and exciting American group, which has been defying genre boundaries for some time now. All members of the same family – the group is named after their great-grandmother – they are not only Julliard-trained instrumentalists, but they are skilled arrangers and singer-songwriters to boot. Their sound and aesthetic is both eclectic and appealing, with influences ranging from American country, folk and bluegrass combined with a pop/jazz/rock twist, all rooted in classical training. Family and faith are incredibly important to the group, both of which helping to keep them grounded. Their first Warner Classics release, American Rhapsody, has all the folk and country elements they are known for – with tracks such as Shenandoah and Fare Thee Well – but with a strong classical seam running through it, with familiar melodies from Dvorak’s American String Quartet and Gershwin’s Rhapsody in Blue woven into the album’s tapestry.

Bei Familie Känzig dominierte eine Art von Instrument den Haushalt: Der Vater besass gleich eine ganze Reihe an Synthesizern. Trotzdem wählte Anna Känzig zunächst einen anderen Weg, lernte als Kind Gitarre, später Bass und Klavier. Zwei Platten nahm sie auf, eine wandte sich dem Jazz zu, die andere bestand aus Folksongs. Sie trat auf dem legendären Montreux Jazz Festival auf, unterrichtete als Gesangslehrerin.

Remastered: 2007, Rudy Van Gelder at Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, NJ

Andy Bey remains what he was back when this album first took shape—the most recognized, and perhaps the most recognizable, member of the Bey family. A fearsomely gifted singer, he boasts spectacular range all but disguised by the warmth and immediacy of his vocal instrument…Because of his prominence in the trio, Andy and the Bey Sisters often falls into the category of origin bands—the trio that launched Andy Bey’s career…But think of it primarily as a vocal group that, at its best, helped establish the intertwined heights conjoined voices might attain. —Neil Tesser

Anat Fort Trio, Gianluigi Trovesi - Birdwatching (2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/88,2kHz

Artist: Anat Fort Trio, Gianluigi Trovesi
Title: Birdwatching
Genre: Jazz, Avant-Garde Jazz, Modern Creative, Piano Jazz, Modern Jazz
Label: © ECM Records GmbH | ECM Reviews
Release Date: 2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 88,2kHz/24bit
Source: Qobuz
Duration: 00:48:22
Recorded: November 2013, Auditorio Stelio Molo RSI, Lugano

For her third ECM album, Israeli pianist Anat Fort augments her long-established trio – with bassist Gary Wang and drummer Roland Schneider – with a special guest: Italian reedman Gianluigi Trovesi. Fort and Trovesi have made a number of appearances together in recent years (from Italy’s Novara Jazz Festival to the Tel-Aviv Opera House), to critical acclaim, and Birdwatching, with its lively bright music, takes their rapport to the next level. There is an alert sense of joy in the playing. Of her album’s title Anat Fort says, “Many of my songs are inspired by movements of things in nature: animals, clouds, winds, water… I didn’t know what this record would be called but when I listened to the finished master I knew had to do with the movement of birds, and with watching, listening, waiting. It is as much about bird-watching outside as about watching that inner bird, the soul.” Quartet music is interspersed with improvised solo piano as the story unfolds in a series of vignettes. Birdwatching was recorded at the Auditorio Stelio Molo RSI, Lugano, and produced by Manfred Eicher.
