Сomposer: Dmitry Shostakovich (1906-1975)
Artist: Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra, Vasily Petrenko

Three weeks after the Nazi invasion of the Soviet Union in June 1941, Shostakovich volunteered with the Home Guard in Leningrad. As the siege of the city intensified, he worked on his Seventh Symphony, completing three movements before being forced to leave Leningrad and travel east by train. The work was completed in December that year. Initially he gave each movement a programmatic title, but later withdrew them, leaving this epic work as an emblem of heroic defiance in the face of conflict and crisis: ‘I dedicate my Seventh Symphony to our struggle against fascism, to our coming victory over the enemy, to my native city, Leningrad.’

New York Polyphony - Sing thee Nowell (2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/96kHz

Сomposer: Various
Artist: New York Polyphony
Title: Sing thee Nowell
Genre: Classical, Vocal
Label: © BIS Records AB
Release Date: 2014
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 96kHz/24bit
Source: eclassical.com
Duration: 71:05
Recorded: March 2014 at the Chapel at The American Boychoir School, Princeton New Jersey, USA

Nowell, Nowel, Noel – on their new release, Sing thee Nowell, New York Polyphony sing of and to the birth of Christ. They do so in a typically sophisticated programme which fuses the ancient with the modern into a seamless whole: seven centuries of Christmas passes before the listener, with new works composed for these performers by Michael McGlynn, Andrew Smith and John Scott alongside traditional medieval and Renaissance carols and motets by Clemens ‘non Papa’, Philippe Verdelot and Tomás Luis de Victoria. The wide-ranging sequence is anchored by Richard Rodney Bennett’s Five Carols, in which the sopranos Sarah Brailey and Elizabeth Baber Weaver join the four members of New York Polyphony in celebrating ‘the joyful birth’ and in praising ‘Mary mild’. The wondrous events related to the Nativity and the joy they bring to mankind naturally dominate, but intimations of Christ’s death on the cross also surface in the course of the disc, as in Peter Warlock’s Bethlehem Down: ‘they will clothe him in grave-sheets, myrrh for embalming, and wood for a crown.’ Formed in 2006, New York Polyphony has rapidly emerged as one of the leading vocal chamber ensembles, applying a distinctly modern touch to repertoire that ranges from austere medieval melodies to cutting-edge contemporary compositions. Two previous recordings for BIS have received critical acclaim, including a Grammy nomination for the 2013 release Times go by Turns, interleaving masses by Byrd and Tallis with works from the 21st century.’

Kenny Dorham - Whistle Stop (1961/2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Artist: Kenny Dorham
Title: Whistle Stop
Genre: Jazz, Hard Bop, Trumpet Jazz
Label: © Blue Note Records
Release Date: 1961 (BLP 4063/BST 84063)/2014
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit
Source: Qobuz
Duration: 00:38:30
Recorded: January 15, 1961 at the Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey.

Whistle Stop is a jazz studio album by Kenny Dorham, featuring performances by acclaimed musicians Hank Mobley, Kenny Drew, Paul Chambers and Philly Joe Jones. It was recorded in January 1961 at Van Gelder Studio, in Englewood Cliffs, and was originally released on Blue Note Records as BST 84063 and BLP 4063. "In 1975", Blumenthal states in the CD liner notes, "five British critics picked Whistle Stop as one of 200 albums that belonged in a basic library of jazz recorded after World War II".

Kenny Dorham was always underrated throughout his career, not only as a trumpeter but as a composer. Whistle Stop features seven of his compositions, none of which were picked up later by any of the Young Lions of the '90s despite their high quality and many fresh melodies. Dorham teams up with tenor-saxophonist Hank Mobley (who had recorded with him previously, along with Art Blakey and Max Roach), pianist Kenny Drew, bassist Paul Chambers, and drummer Philly Joe Jones for a set of lively, fresh, and consistently swinging music. This is a generally overlooked near-classic set. --Scott Yanow

Kenny Dorham - Trompeta Toccata (1964/2014) High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 24bit/192kHz

Artist: Kenny Dorham
Title: Trompeta Toccata
Genre: Jazz, Hard Bop, Post Bop, Trumpet Jazz
Label: © Blue Note Records
Release Date: 1964 (BLP 4181/BST 84181)/2014
Quality: High-Fidelity FLAC Stereo 192kHz/24bit
Source: Qobuz
Duration: 00:37:09
Recorded at the Van Gelder Studio, Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey on September 4, 1964

It seems strange and somewhat tragic that this was trumpeter Kenny Dorham's last full album as a leader for he was only 40 at the time and still in his prime. Dorham contributed three of the four selections to the session (Joe Henderson's catchy "Mamacita" also receives its debut), and his very underrated abilities as a writer, trumpeter, and talent scout are very much in evidence. This modern hard bop quintet set with Henderson on tenor, pianist Tommy Flanagan, bassist Richard Davis, and drummer Albert "Tootie" Heath served as a strong (if premature) ending to Dorham's impressive career as a solo artist. --Scott Yanow, AllMusic
