The Dover Quartet, in their first release on Azica Records, have recorded the complete string quartets of Robert Schumann. The phenomenal Dover Quartet catapulted to international stardom following a stunning sweep of the 2013 Banff Competition, at which they won every prize. Named the Cleveland Quartet Award-winner, and honored with the coveted Avery Fisher Career Grant, the Dover has become one of the most in-demand ensembles in the world. The Quartet’s rise from up-and-coming young ensemble to occupying a spot at the top of their field has been “practically meteoric” (Strings). With its burnished warmth, incisive rhythms, and natural phrasing, the Quartet’s distinctive sound has helped confirm its status as “the young American string quartet of the moment” (New Yorker). The Quartet serves as the quartet-in-residence for the Bienen School of Music at Northwestern University, Chamber Music Northwest, Artosphere, the Amelia Island Chamber Music Festival, and Peoples’ Symphony in New York, and was recently named the first-ever quartet-in-residence for the Kennedy Center.

After the worldwide success of their album "Mozart meets Cuba", which was one of the best-selling albums for Mozart's 250th birthday, Klazz Brothers & Cuba Percussion dedicate their twelfth album to Ludwig van Beethoven, whose 250th birthday celebrates the Klassikwelt 2020. Beethoven's work seems so compact and coherent that the impression is created that nothing more can be added. But already on his first album, "Classic meets Cuba", the quintet has shown through a set of the "Pathétique" sonata that it is possible to skilfully blend Beethoven's music with Cuban rhythms, and over the years, they have created more for their successful albums edits.

Music for wind ensemble was a regular part of entertainment in Beethoven’s day, and his Octet was composed for the skilled players in the service of his patron, the Archbishop-Elector in Bonn. The charming and skilfully written Sextet is also ‘from my early things and, what’s more, was written in one night’; impressing a critic of the time ‘by its splendid melodies, leisurely harmonic flow, and wealth of new and surprising ideas’. Wind partitas often opened with a March, and the Rondino was originally intended as the Finale to the Octet, two suitable pieces to complete this fashionable Beethoven soirée.

Dreamtime is a spellbinding collection of works for flute and orchestra which, in Emmanuel Pahud’s words “expresses and gives form to the composers’ most personal, spiritual or dreamlike visions”. The album ranges wide both culturally and chronologically, embracing works by Mozart, Reinecke, Busoni, Takemitsu and Penderecki, and inhabits a dimension “populated by incantations and prayers, in which imagination is woven together and then unravels, and where desire is roused by fantasy”. Pahud is partnered by the Munich Radio Orchestra and its Principal Conductor, Ivan Repušić.

Synthpop, Female Vocal | Label: Italians Do It Better

You don’t come to Chromatics for the songs so much as the opportunity to linger in the world in which the songs transpire: Eerie, stylish, unsettled but seductive—a horror movie so pretty you don’t see the silver for blade or the red for blood until it’s too late. Surprise-released in late 2019 after a years-long period during which they teased an entirely different album (the hypothetical Dear Tommy, whose 25,000 physical copies producer/songwriter Johnny Jewel supposedly destroyed), Closer to Grey leans on the lighter side of the band’s sound, shifting between beatless meditations (“Wishing Well”, an unnerving take on “The Sound of Silence”) and brittle, ethereal synth-pop (“You’re No Good”, the downtempo “Light as a Feather”).

A breakthrough album by pianist Kris Davis. Diatom Ribbons is her 14th recording as a leader and marks a new chapter in her career as she keeps writing and playing with imagination, courageously looking forward. Here, she is in charge of nine exceptional musicians, including old and new collaborators, who are combined to provide specific sonic outfits for each of the ten tunes on the record. If the presences of saxophonist Tony Malaby, vibraphonist Ches Smith, and bassist Trevor Dunn are not surprises, then the inclusion of great tenorist JD Allen, drummer Terri Lyne Carrington, explosive guitarists Marc Ribot and Nels Cline, vocalist Esperanza Spalding, and Haitian electronics artist Val Jeanty are all new additions to Davis’ projects.
