“You can sense in her such a passion, she is really inside the music… She is so young but she already has this internal spark and this energy” - Gautier Capuçon
Camille & Julie are the Berthollet sisters, two extraordinarily gifted musical siblings from the idyllic Rhône-Alpes region in France. Camille (17) plays violin and cello and Julie (19) violin and viola. They became celebrities in France when the then 15-year-old Camille won Prodiges, a TV show for classical virtuosos under the age of 16. After captivating more than four million viewers on the France 2 network with her searing rendition of ‘Summer’ from Vivaldi’s Four Seasons, Camille was immediately signed to Warner Classics, her debut album (featuring her older sister as duo partner) going on to achieve Gold status with more than 80,000 copies sold in France alone. On their second album together, with the support of the Monte Carlo Philharmonic Orchestra, the sibling sensations reveal the poise, maturity and musical prowess they have continued to develop since Prodiges, confirming their talent goes far beyond the TV phenomenon that launched their bright careers.

Buffalo Springfield - Buffalo Springfield Again (1967/2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/88,2kHz

Artist: Buffalo Springfield
Title: Buffalo Springfield Again
Genre: Rock, Country Rock, Folk Rock, Psychedelic/Garage, Rock & Roll
Label: © ATCO Records
Release Date: 1967/2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 88,2kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 00:34:06
Recorded: January–September 1967, Los Angeles, California

Due in part to personnel problems which saw Bruce Palmer and Neil Young in and out of the group, Buffalo Springfield's second album did not have as unified an approach as their debut. Yet it doesn't suffer for that in the least -- indeed, the group continued to make major strides in both their songwriting and arranging, and this record stands as their greatest triumph. Stephen Stills' "Bluebird" and "Rock & Roll Woman" were masterful folk-rockers that should have been big hits (although they did manage to become small ones); his lesser-known contributions "Hung Upside Down" and the jazz-flavored "Everydays" were also first-rate. Young contributed the Rolling Stones-derived "Mr. Soul," as well as the brilliant "Expecting to Fly" and "Broken Arrow," both of which employed lush psychedelic textures and brooding, surrealistic lyrics that stretched rock conventions to their breaking point. Richie Furay (who had not written any of the songs on the debut) takes tentative songwriting steps with three compositions, although only "A Child's Claim to Fame," with its memorable dobro hooks by James Burton, meets the standards of the material by Stills and Young; the cut also anticipates the country-rock direction of Furay's post-Springfield band, Poco. Although a slightly uneven record that did not feature the entire band on several cuts, the high points were so high and plentiful that its classic status cannot be denied. --AllMusic Review by Richie Unterberger

Buffalo Springfield is the self-titled debut album by folk rock band Buffalo Springfield, released in late 1966. It was originally released in both mono and stereo versions as Atco (SD) 33-200, but when the single "For What It's Worth" became a hit, the album was re-released as Atco (SD) 33-200A adding it but dropping "Baby Don't Scold Me". "Baby Don't Scold Me" has never been reissued in stereo: all CD releases feature only the mono mix.
The album was produced by the group's managers, Charles Greene and Brian Stone, each of whom had minimal experience as a record producer, and the band was generally unhappy with the sound of the album and felt that it didn't reflect the intensity of their live shows. The band asked Atco for time to re-record the album, but the label, not wanting to miss the Christmas holiday season, insisted that the record be released as it was. However, the label did give Stills and Young permission to personally mix the mono version of the LP themselves, and the Buffalo Springfield have long insisted that their mono version was superior to the stereo version.

Bria Skonberg - Bria (2016) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Artist: Bria Skonberg
Title: Bria
Genre: Jazz, Vocal Jazz, Swing, Cool Jazz, Trumpet Jazz
Label: © Okeh/Sony Masterworks
Release Date: 2016
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: HDTracks
Duration: 01:06:40
Recorded at Sear Sound Studios, New York; Mastered at Battery Studios, New York


Okeh Records announces its first release from singer, trumpeter, and songwriter Bria Skonberg. With a unique fusion of modern-day pop sensibility, combined with sizzling musicianship, Skonberg makes a firm claim on fresh territory in the sophisticated pop landscape pioneered by Harry Connick Jr., Diana Krall, and Michael Bublé. Titled Bria, the album features standards plus five original songs and is available September 23.
Skonberg aimed for "a sense of allure" on her new album, "music that is both curious and exotic, playing with tension and storytelling." She credits producer Matt Pierson with helping her tie together the best aspects of the music she’s been exploring, in a quest "to fuse my love of classic jazz with worldly rhythm, percussion, contemporary songwriting, and more."
Bria is supported by some of the top musicians on the New York scene: Evan Arntzen on sax and clarinet, drummer Ali Jackson, bassist Reginald Veal, vibraphonist Stefon Harris, and pianist Aaron Diehl. They provide Bria with an unfailing blend of organically imagined eclecticism.
"…poised to be one of the most versatile and imposing musicians of her generation." – Wall Street Journal
Noted as a Millennial “Shaking Up the Jazz World,” according to Vanity Fair, Bria Skonberg is a self-described “small town girl” from Chilliwack, British Columbia, who hightailed it to Vancouver straight out of high school and earned a degree in Jazz Trumpet Performance. She developed her songwriting chops while working with TV/jingle producer Paul Airey, known for his work with the likes of Warner Bros. studios and the National Hockey League.
Skonberg is an established touring artist with numerous club and festival performances scheduled throughout 2016. In addition, in an upcoming issue of Down Beat magazine, she’s recognized as one of “25 for the Future.” All in all, it’s an impressive present and even more promising future for this welcome new voice.

Johannes Brahms - Symphony No. 4 & Hungarian Dances - Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Marek Janowski (2008) High-Fidelity DSF Stereo DSD64/2.82MHz

The brotherhood of writers likes to get hold of a slogan in order to effectively and boldly describe a composer and his oeuvre. However, such an abbreviated description is not without danger, if not followed by subtle arguments for the choice of the words. Nevertheless, please permit the undersigned also to mention a catchy phrase in the case of Johannes Brahms, which concentrates the mind on the essential. Therefore, should one wish to label Brahms as a composer, then it would most certainly not bear the inscription of a “symphonic” or “Lied” composer, but – if the word existed – of a “variationalistic” composer. After all, the main purpose of Brahms’ life as a composer was the constant transformation of the musical material at hand, the re-examination of traditional elements and forms. And also during the course of his four contributions to the symphonic genre, which indeed caused him such great problems at first, the variation model was ceded an increasingly important role.

There is no doubt about it, great things were expected of Johannes Brahms, as is clear in these sentences penned by Robert Schumann in 1855. Schumann had already showered him with praise in his article “Neue Bahnen”, and now expected Brahms to finally alter course in the direction of the larger-sized works, such as the symphony: it was essential for the young composer to once and for all outdo the “giant” Beethoven in this field. Brahms was under double pressure: on the one hand, his circle of friends led by Schumann, as well as the music world, were anxiously awaiting his first symphony; on the other, he was struggling with himself and with his relentless self-criticism. Was he truly already up to the challenge?
