“This album really does represent a full circle of blues for me. Eight of the tunes are new compositions and three tunes here represent songs I wrote as much as 30 to 45 years ago when I was leader and front man for the original Roomful of Blues in the 1970s. We hope you enjoy our back to the basics approach to the music here. Just straightforward small band, old school blues.” --Duke Robillard

Debussy, Dutilleux, Ravel - Quatuors a cordes - Arcanto Quartett (2010) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/44,1kHz

Сomposer: Claude Debussy (1862-1918), Henri Dutilleux (b.1916), Maurice Ravel (1875-1937)
Artist: Arcanto Quartett
Title: Debussy, Dutilleux, Ravel - Quatuors à cordes
Genre: Classical
Label: © harmonia mundi usa
Release Date: 2010

Recorded: octobre 2009, Teldex Studio Berlin


Antje Weithaas, Daniel Sepec, Tabea Zimmermann and Jean-Guihen Queyras founded the Arcanto Quartet in 2002. The four musicians, who in addition to their musical affinities share a close personal friendship, quickly conquered the world of chamber music and have played all the major European venues. The 2009/10 season started with a tour of Japan in September, followed by a residency at the Wigmore Hall, where the quartet invited Jörg Widmann, Silke Avenhaus and Olivier Marron for several concerts. This autumn, the Arcantos will visit North America. For their third CD for harmonia mundi they perform three French String Quartets, all by composers who wrote little chamber music. Debussy and Ravel composed their only string quartet at the start of their careers, whereas Dutilleux wrote Ainsi la nuit shortly before his 60th birthday. Debussy’s quartet, dedicated to the Ysaÿe Quartet, is his only work to possess an opus number. Written in 1892-3, it comprises the standard four movements and adopts sonata form in the two outer movements. The String Quartet of Ravel was composed in 1902-03 and premiered by the Heyman Quartet on 5 March 1904. It possesses undeniable signs of kinship with the Debussy work: it conforms to the cyclic principle, and begins and ends with a sonata form movement; its scherzo is similarly characterised by crackling pizzicatos which stylise the sound of the guitar and give the movement a Spanish colour; as with Debussy, the strings play with mutes in the first and last sections of the slow movement. The works of Dutilleux are rare and matured at length. Commissioned by the Serge Koussevitzky Foundation, Ainsi la nuit occupied the composer from 1971 to 1976. Dedicated ‘to the memory of Ernest Sussman [an American art-lover and friend of the composer] and in homage to Olga Koussevitzky’, it was premièred by the Parrenin Quartet at the Théâtre de l’Est Parisien on 6 January 1977.

Dans Les Arbres - Canopee (2012) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/44,1kHz

Artist: Dans Les Arbres
Title: Canopée
Genre: Jazz, Free Improvisation, Avant-Garde Jazz, Post Minimalism
Label: © ECM Records GmbH | ECM Player | ECM Reviews
Release Date: 2012
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 44,1kHz/24bit
Source: Qobuz
Duration: 00:48:50
Recorded: June 2010 at Biermannsgården and April 2011 at Cafeteatret, Oslo

On this second album by the unorthodox quartet comprised of Norwegians Grydeland, Wallumrød and Zach, and Frenchman Charles, the music continues to unfold with poetic logic and unhurried pace. To paraphrase La Monte Young, Dans les arbres draws a straight line and follows it. Their music moves gently but steadily ahead on broad planes of sound, the textural scenery changing as DLA harnesses its wealth of unorthodox extended techniques. Including but not limited to: Charles’ extraordinary control of harmonics, the prepared piano of Wallumrød perfectly matched by the prepared banjo of Grydeland and by Zach’s unprecedented use of the gran cassa, the horizontal orchestral bass drum, augmented here by metal percussion and ceramic bells. Small movements precipitate gradual sonic transformations. Sounds are carefully nurtured and encouraged to glow. Responsibilities are very equally shared as textures are blended.

Recording: October 2015, Teldex Studio, Berlin, Germany


Daniel Barenboim’s first solo recording on the remarkable new concert grand Barenboim-Maene which he developed in collaboration with instrument maker Chris Maene
Barenboim has selected works by four keyboard masters to display his piano’s timbral and tonal capabilities: “I’ve fallen in love with my new piano”, he exclaims, “and want to spend as much time with it as possible.”
Conceived and commissioned by Barenboim himself, the new piano was developed and built by esteemed Belgian instrument maker Chris Maene, with support from Steinway & Sons.
Barenboim was inspired to create a new piano after playing Franz Liszt’s restored grand piano during a trip to Siena in September 2011. Struck by the vital differences in sound of an instrument constructed with straight, parallel strings rather than the diagonal crossed ones of a contemporary instrument, he set out to create a brand new instrument that combines the best of the old and the new and offers a real alternative for pianists and music-lovers in the 21st century.
Barenboim says: "The transparency and tonal characteristics of the traditional straight-strung instruments is so different from the homogenous tone produced by the modern piano across its entire range. The clearly distinguishable voices and color across its registers of Liszt's piano inspired me to explore the possibility of combining these qualities with the power, looks, evenness of touch, stability of tuning and other technical advantages of the modern Steinway…"

Count Basie And His Orchestra - Basic Basie (1969/2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/88,2kHz

Artist: Count Basie And His Orchestra
Title: Basic Basie
Genre: Jazz, Big Band, Swing, Piano Blues, Piano Jazz
Label: © MPS - Musik Produktion Schwarzwald | Edel Germany GmbH
Release Date: 1969/2014

Recorded: October 20th, 1969, Universal Recording Studio, Chicago, IL


In his autobiography, Miles Davis wrote that as a seven or eight year old kid in his native East St. Louis, he often came to school too late. He just had to listen to the daily 8:45 a.m. “Harlem Rhythms” radio program. One of the orchestras that especially fascinated the youngster was Count Basie’s big band. To this day, the band continues to impress the jazz world. MPS scored a coup when they were able to set up a recording date with the Basie orchestra. It took place on October 20th, 1969 at Universal Studios in Chicago. As agreed upon, the band brought along standards from the Basie book, and the Count fulfilled MPS head Hans Georg Brunner-Schwer’s wish that Basie play longer piano passages than usual; normally Basie limited himself to a short riff here and there. “The way Basie and his orchestra played reminded me of a top long distance runner,” producer Sonny Lester commented in the liner notes to the album. He went on to say that the band’s playing was, “disciplined, clean, with such a feel for timing and teamwork that you had the feeling that every band member was guided by the same brain.” The best-known names in that particular group were tenor saxophonist Eddie “Lockjaw” Davis and guitarist Freddie Green, who was a Basie mainstay over the decades. The Count, whose name was actually William James Basie, died in 1984 at the age of 79.
