Charlemagne Palestine & Rrose - The Goldennn Meeenn + Sheeenn
Charlemagne Palestine & Rrose
The Goldennn Meeenn + Sheeenn
LP | 2019 | EU | Original (Eaux)
22,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Electronic / Dance, Classical Music
Charlemagne Palestine's majestic 1976 work The Golden Mean, originally performed by Palestine on two pianos, is revisited here as The Goldennn Meeenn + Sheeenn, a new collaboration between Palestine and enigmatic musician Rrose.
March 2018: the Festival Variations in Nantes commissions Charlemagne Palestine to reinvent The Golden Mean for two pianists. Palestine chose Rrose to join him in this new rendition of the work. Together, they performed The Goldennn Meeenn + Sheeenn onstage at the main opera house in Nantes -- the sumptuous Théâtre Graslin – with extraordinary results.
The concept of the 'golden mean' goes back to the roots of mathematics, and ancient Greek philosophy. It is an important work in the Palestine mythos, embodying his total immersion in the power of the interval. "It's probably his most systematic work . . . a step-by-step journey through the intervals of the octave," says Rrose. "When we rehearsed it, we were noticing how each interval is like a universe of its own -- with its own history, emotions, and sonic qualities all mixed up together. Every time you move from one interval to the next, it feels like moving into another world.
I love the interval," Palestine told me in a recent interview. "I love when it plays with itself. That's what I learned from organ musics too. You can just do an interval, and if they're just slightly out of tune with each other, then they shimmer . . . they play themselves. And it sounds like somebody's playing lots of notes. In your ear, it's like an aural phenomenon . . . that's my whole concept. I make something that then does itself somehow. It continues by itself. So I don't have to always be there. And that makes my music a little less egocentric. So there's more space. Also for the listener — the ear plays with these things, and you're not always being given orders. Your ear isn't given orders all the time of what to listen for."
Beautifully recorded, with mastering by Rashad Becker of Dubplates and Mastering, The Golden Mean + Sheeenn feels expansive, radiant and hypnotic, opening new ears to its enduring mystery.
Rrose adds this note to listeners: "Do not focus your attention on the notes being played, but on the ocean of overtones swimming, suspended, overhead, brushing against one another, kissing one another, melting into one another.

Release:2010 / EU – Reissue
Genre:Organic Grooves, Classical Music
Near the end of the old millennium, someone once rapped, "Being futuristic these days means being futuristic on your own terms," which is entirely fitting when said rapper records an album of solo piano instrumentals. (Perhaps less instructive is what said rapper went on to say: "Being futuristic means loving worms, saving your sperm, wearing your pubes in a perm.") The former Chilly Gonzales has a hint of Gershwin in his playing, an urbane, contemplative take on the blues that sometime turns into a wry smile. He also has a hint of Satie, the spare and haunted sound of a music box turning slowly to a halt as it comes to the end of its wind. But what he also has is entirely his own, which not only makes this the best album of solo piano instrumentals by a rapper extant but also one of the finest solo piano albums not by a jazz or classical performer. Obviously, there's a duality to any man who lit up stages with Peaches but also played with and produced Jane Birkin and Charles Aznavour, but Solo Piano is a disarmingly wonderful record. - allmusic.com

Pieces From The Cloudland Ballroom
LP | 1971 | ES | Reissue (Wah Wah)
19,99 €*
Release:1971 / ES – Reissue
Genre:Classical Music
British experimental musician, composer, performer and producer Anthony Moore was a founding member of Slap Happy and has worked with Henry Cow, Kevin Ayers, and Pink Floyd among other great names in the British scene. In 1971 he moved to Hamburg, Germany, and worked in the boiling experimental scene of the city. As a result, two LPs were issued on Polydor in 1971 and 1972, right before forming Slap Happy with old school pal Peter Blegvad and Dagmar Krause.

"Pieces From a Cloudland Ballroom" is the first of those early solo LPs by Moore on Polydor. It was released in 1971 under the production of Uwe Nettlebeck and featured Anthony Moore on conduction, Ulf Kenklies, Glyn Davenport and Gieske Hof-Helmers on vocals, plus Werner 'Zappa' Diermeier on hi-hat.

Pure minimalist experimentation with echoes of Richard Young's "Advent" or even Moondog, done just a month after Faust (who included Werner 'Zappa' Diermeier) recorded their first LP. The missing link between British "art-rock" and the German "krautrock" scenes!

This is a 500 copies only reissue done in collaboration with Anthony Moore himself. Comes housed in its original artwork.

Leo Svirsky
River Without Banks
LP | 2019 | EU | Original (Unseen Worlds)
17,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Classical Music
"How to begin? No beginning... never ending reverberation," Antoine Beuger writes in the accompanying notes to Leo Svirsky's River Without Banks. Dedicated to his first piano teacher Irena Orlov, River Without Banks is a mesmerizing, emotional collection of pieces that are simultaneously complex and fluid. The title River Without Banks comes from a chapter of musicologist Genrikh "Henry" Orlov's profound work Tree of Music. In said chapter, Orlov traces the history of sacred music from the Western and Eastern tradition and how the forms (of the chant, raga etc.) sought to eliminate the division between the physical and the spiritual - the bank and the river.

Arranged for two pianos with accompaniment from strings, trumpet, and electronics, this is Svirsky's deepest dive yet into the instability of listening and its transformation of musical semantics and affect. Like Wolfgang Voigt's Gas project, Svirsky overlays romantic musical gestures to create a lush unfamiliarity. No sooner than each track begins the next moment unfurls beneath it, cascading time and blurring perception of past and present. River Without Banks is less an album of songs than songs of a singular, unlocatable album. Performed by the composer with assistance from Britton Powell, Max Eilbacher, Leila Bordreuil, Tim Byrnes, and recorded by Al Carlson.
Debussy - Nocturnes
LP | 2019 | EU | Original (Edit.Futurum)
27,99 €*
Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Classical Music
Meet the intoxicating, meditative sounds of Claude Debussy (1862-1918), one of the greatest innovators of Western music. The impressionist composer was inspired by the classical myth of the sirens, female sea-demons with such unearthly beautiful voices that they managed to lure all passing sailors into their deadly arms. In a similar way, Debussy wanted to enchant his listeners with his esoteric composition Trois nocturnes, inspired by the atmosphere of the night. In the first part, Nuages, one can hear silvery-lit clouds slide slowly past the moon. The second part, Fetes, depicts nocturnal festivities and blazing torches, and the third part is devoted to the mysteriously singing Sirens. Unlike his contemporaries, Debussy did not compose elaborate, bombastic symphonies, but rather dreamy, self-contained music that is still topical today, and breaths the free spirit of nature. It 'would resound through the open spaces and float joyfully over the tops of the trees.' The lucid performance of the Orchestre National De Lyon comes close to Debussy's ideal, and seduces the listener to lose himself in otherworldly dreams and mind-expanding fantasies. This beautiful recording of Nocturnes never been on vinyl before!! *Pre-order price*

Genre:Classical Music
One copy per customer.

Domino is extremely proud to present Henryk Górecki: Symphony No. 3 (Symphony of Sorrowful Songs) performed by Beth Gibbons and the Polish National Radio Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Krzysztof Penderecki.

The performance took place at The National Opera Grand Theatre in Warsaw on November 29th 2014, and was part of an evening of programming that also featured Jonny Greenwood's (Radiohead) 48 Responses To Polymorphia and the world premiere of Bryce Dessner's (The National) Réponse Lutosławski.

Following an invitation to collaborate at the concert, Beth Gibbons undertook an intense preparation process, including tackling the challenge of learning the original text (and the emotional weight it carries) without speaking the mother language. Typical to Beth though - the elusive yet iconic frontwoman of one of the most important British bands of the last two decades - the challenge was met and exceeded. Her performance alongside the maestro Penderecki has been hailed as triumphant, as you can see and hear on this release.

The film, was produced by the National Audiovisual Institute, Poland and directed by Michał Merczyński.

Brahms - 3rd Symphony

Release:2019 / EU – Original
Genre:Classical Music
A download code is included. Frei aber froh! This was the motto of Johannes Brahms (1833-1897): ''Free but happy!'' The Romantic composer formulated it in response to his friend Joseph Joachim, who after the divorce of his wife went through life under the painful motto Frei aber einsam. In his intoxicating Third Symphony, Brahms - through the three notes F(rei) A(ber) F(roh) - focused on his personal love of freedom, as well as the heroic struggle it takes to become a free, independent individual. It is known that Brahms never got married, but often fell in love with young, beautiful female musicians, and felt a lifetime attraction to Clara Schumann, the wife of the famous composer. That romantic yearning can be heard in the lyrical, melancholic Poco allegretto, one of Brahms's best-known melodies. The second movement of the symphony, Andante, has a rustic character, and Clara called it ''a pure idyll''. Here one can hear the carefree, cheerful side of freedom, that of long walks in nature and the absence of oppressing tires. Being free is also frightening and difficult, which is reflected in the majestic motifs in the first and fourth movements, which follow each other at a furious pace and only in the final measures of the composition are reconciled in the recurring Frei aber froh-motif. This performance of Brahms's Third Symphony by the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra, conducted by the world-famous Jaap van Zweden, is of the very highest quality.

Genre:Classical Music
“Symphony No. 9 in D minor” is the last symphony upon which Anton Bruckner worked, leaving the
last movement incomplete at the time of his death in 1896. Van Beinum, the Dutch conductor, was a
specialist in the music of Bruckner. One of the best recordings of the Bruckner 9th, some say that it is
THEE best, was recorded in Amsterdam in September 1956 with the Concertgebouw Orchestra. This
is, by any standards, a great account of the 9th, one that is more dramatic than epic, a performance
that anatomizes this great wounded giant of a symphony. Eduard van Beinum is responsible for the
Concertgebouw Orchestra's Bruckner tradition. Eduard van Beinum was a great Brucknerian.

20,99 €*
Release:2018 / EU – Original
Genre:Classical Music
Le Raccourci is a welcome introduction to the world of modern classical identity Sebastian Gandera. The impressionist landscapes of a sensitive soul self-reflecting, these miniature compositions alternate across a rudimentary set up of piano, field recorder, sampler and four track. Melancholic utterings hastily captured some 100km east of Paris. Classically trained by the same teacher as his parents, Gandera first began recording in the confines of his university dorm room, inspired by a C60 from friend and future collaborator Bernard Odot (A Gethsémani). Humbly existing without sparing a thought to music industry or career, Gandera’s personal effects surfaced via the European and US cassette networks from 1988 to 1994. Impressively accomplished for the DIY scene they orbited, these tapes were issued in scant quantities, rendering his pieces as private secrets shared and duplicated in small concentric circles. Aside from a sole, avowedly traumatic performance, the material was never shared in a live context.

Solo Piano III – Abschluss der Solo Piano-Trilogie
Es ist der Schlussakt – und wie immer tauchen vor dem Sprint in Richtung Ziellinie die letzten
Probleme auf, müssen die letzten Lösungen gefunden werden. Wie die beiden vorangegangenen
Alben findet es ein überwiegend glückliches Ende in C-Dur, doch auf dem Weg dorthin gibt es
mehr Dissonanzen, Spannungen und Unklarheiten.

Solo Piano III markiert einen weitaus schwierigeren Wendepunkt.
Die Zusammenarbeit mit anderen Künstlern setzt er fort (u.a. Room 29 mit Jarvis Cocker, Ibeyi,
Toddla T), doch mittlerweile ist es Chilly Gonzales egal, ob seine Musik jedermann gefällt oder
nicht. Fortan werden falsche Noten nicht mehr glattgebügelt: Die geheimnisvollen Akkorde und
seltsamen Strukturen besitzen einen solchen Suchtfaktor, dass sie schließlich wie unvermeidlich
klingen. Während Gonzales' eigens gegründete Musikschule, das Gonzervatory, ihren ersten
Jahrgang absolviert hat, ist ihr Lehrer wieder zum ewigen Schüler geworden – und das ohne Angst,
die Musik für sich selbst sprechen zu lassen.
Die musikalische Reinheit von Solo Piano III ist kein Gegengift für unsere Zeit, sie reflektiert all
das Schöne wie auch Hässliche, das uns umgibt.

Der jüngst verstorbene Jóhann Jóhannsson beendete kurz vor seinem Tod sein neues Album.
„Englabörn & Variations“ erscheint nun wie geplant. Es ist ein berührendes posthumes Zeugnis der
eindringlichen Tonsprache des Komponisten. Auf dem neuen Doppelalbum hat sich Jóhannsson selbst
mit seinem ersten Solo-Album aus dem Jahr 2002 auseinandergesetzt und diesem neue Variationen
hinzugefügt. So enthält es eine Klavierversion des Titeltracks von DG-Kollege Vikingur Ólafsson und
ergreifende Chorstücke. Aber auch andere international bekannte Musiker, die Jóhannsson
bewunderte, haben ihre Interpretationen hinzugefügt: u.a. Ryuichi Sakamoto, Ambient-Duo A Winged
Victory for a Sullen, Komponist und Produzent Paul Corley. „Seine Musik ist herausragend in ihrer
intensiven Klangfülle und lyrischen Dichte. Und sie ist für meine Ohren sehr isländisch“, so Sakamoto.
Dass ausgerechnet das Album mit dem Jóhannsson seine Solo-Karriere begann diese nun beschließt,
damit hat niemand gerechnet. Doch es zeigt ihn als den sensiblen Klangmaler und poetischen
Erzähler, der er war. Sein erstes Album hat auch nach 16 Jahren nichts an Kraft und Tiefe verloren
und Jóhannsson wollte das Alte neben dem Neuen erklingen lassen

Genre:Classical Music
Beving has been one with the piano from an early age. He was forced to end his musical studies at the conservatory and instead continued at university to get a degree in social sciences. However, his love for his instrument never perished.

Where once his goal was to hit as many notes per minute as physically possible, his style of playing has changed over the years, searching for a particular aesthetic essence. His path was illuminated by a piano that Beving inherited from his grandmother when she passed away in 2009. This German instrument insisted on a more gentle touch and a gracious pace, which eventually led Beving to adapt to a more classical vocabulary to tell his story.

Joep Beving is a composer and musician, but to the international advertising community he is mostly known as the face of music agency MassiveMusic.

Edinburgh. Nach dem Studium wurde Ackroyd Mitglied im Hidden Orchestra. Auf ihrem Debütalbum
"Escapement" (2012) spielte sie vor dem Hintergrund von Field Recordings Piano und Geige - wobei spielen
recht weitläufig zu verstehen ist, da sie ihr Klavier mit ungewöhnlichen Mitteln bearbeitet. Dazu gehören das
Zupfen, Klopfen, Streichen und Sägen. Auf ihrem zweiten Album "Feathers" (2014) spielte sie auch
Clavichord, Cembalo, Spinett und Harmonium. Ackroyds Aufnahmen kennen Brüder im Geiste wie Ludovico
Einaudi, Philipp Glass, Nils Frahm, Silvain Chauveau, Max Richter sowie Hauschka und werden dem weiten
Feld zwischen Minimal Music, Modern Classical, Elektronik und Popmusik zugeordnet. Über ihre eigenen
Arbeiten hinaus schreibt sie auch Musik für Tanz-Performances, Theater, Film und Radio. "Sketches"
versteht sich als Mini-Album, das die Zeit bis zum nächsten "richtigen Langspieler" im Oktober 2017
verkürzen soll. Es enthält neben vier neuen Kompositionen sechs überarbeitete, das heißt neu für

Joachim Roedelius gehört zu den Übervätern der Kosmischen Musik und des Krautrock. Mit seinen
Bands Cluster und Harmonia gestaltete er diese Musikstile maßgeblich mit. Heute blickt Roedelius auf
eine über hundert Releases umfassende Diskographie zurück, und die Liste seiner musikalischen
Partner reicht dabei von seinem langjährigen künstlerischen Weggefährten Dieter Moebius über
internationale Stars wie Brian Eno bis zu jüngeren Musikern wie Tim Story. Arnold Kasar ist fast
dreißig Jahre jünger und ein Kind des Crossover im Berlin der 1990er Jahre. Er brach die Grenze
zwischen elektronischer Tanzmusik und Jazz auf, er musizierte (und musiziert noch) mit Micatone,
Nylon und Friedrich Lichtenstein. Bei ihren gemeinsamen Aufnahmesitzungen in Baden bei Wien
entschied Roedelius sich sehr früh dafür, auch Klavier zu spielen. Kasar hatte die Idee, das Klavier mit
Filz zu präparieren. So entstand der einzigartige, zarte, intime Klang des Albums. »Joachim
[Roedelius] hat einen schönen, weichen Anschlag. Er hatte nie im Leben auch nur eine Stunde
Klavierunterricht. Es gibt keine Komposition bei ihm. Er macht etwas mit dem Klavier, was er auch mit
den Synthesizern macht. Ich kann das nicht erklären, aber es bewegt etwas in mir.«

Born in Oakland, CA, but raised in New Mexico, Partch learned mandolin, violin, piano, reed organ, and cornet as a child. Clearly a unique talent, even that early on, Partch went to USC Music School but was dissatisfied with his teachers, and instead studied music on his own where he learned to reject many of the Western constructs of music and began experimenting withusing scales of unequal intervals in just intonation, and was one of the first Western composers of the 20th century to use microtonal scales. These recordings were some of the first made after Partch settled in Sausalito and founded his legendary Gate 5 studio. Debuted in 1953 on KPFA radio, these compositions still sound otherworldly and cutting edge today. Essential American 20th Century composer Harry Partch, on Jeanne Dielman.

Mica Levi returns to Slip with six piano pieces played by Eliza McCarthy in ‘Slow Dark Green Murky Waterfall’ - a crepuscular suite riddled with Mica’s inquisitive, conversational phrasing and smartly expanding upon their 7” track, ‘Riding Through Drinking Harpo Dine’ [Foom, 2017], a new recording of which also appears in this set. The culmination of three years work between Mica and Eliza - winner of the 2013 British Contemporary Piano Competition - ‘Slow Dark Green Murky Waterfall’ follows up their collaboration on the Oscar-nominated score for Pablo Larrain’s ‘Jackie’ score with a finer-shaded, patient space for low-lit, smoky expression that’s so intimate and personal it almost feels like eavesdropping a private recording.

Los Angeles based pianist, producer, and songwriter John Carroll Kirby traveled to Pietrasanta, Italy in the summer of 2018 on a self-imposed writing trip. During his stay he composed Tuscany, a two side-long solo piano exploration of this particular geographical envelope, a place where nature is shaped into form.
Kirby would cycle 12 kilometers each day to Cascata di Malbacco, a waterfall with jade pools and silver stone, and the inspiration for Side A of Tuscany. His own Cascata di Malbacco tumbles and shimmers along the piano as a gorgeous eighteen-minute-long improvised piece, some of it polished and some moments left raw.
On a ride to Sant’Anna, twenty-something kilometers away, Kirby took a wrong turn and got lost among the hills, where he encountered several monuments memorializing the victims of the Sant’Anna di Stazzema massacre. The dark history of an abandoned mill house served as the inspiration for the album’s haunting Side B, a eulogy for all of those forgotten by time.
Although Side A is inspired by the natural beauty of a waterfall, and Side B by the cruelty that people can inflict upon others, both pieces revolve around the same seven-note bassline. The idea Kirby is iterating on is the realization that darkness exists inside light, and vice versa; Tuscany is an inquiry into this duality and its consequences.
John Carroll Kirby has recently released records on Leaving Records, Outside Insight and Pinchy & Friends. In the studio and on the road, he’s produced and/or played with Connan Mockasin, Blood Orange, Sebastian Tellier, Shabazz Palaces and Solange.
He recently signed to Stones Throw Records.
Patience is a new outlet for exploring further beyond the break than usual. Inspired by the music perpetually on rotation at HQ – with E2-E4 representing the format’s high tide mark – each release will be one artist’s deep dive down one inspirational wormhole spread across two sides of vinyl, or two side-long sojourns making full use of a round 12” piece of plastic. Set and forget, zone out to tune in.

The Royal Ballet Gala Performances" Werke von Pjotr Tschaikowski, Gioachino Rossini, Léo Delibes, Adolphe Adam, Robert Schumann, a.o. - Das Orchestra of the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden unter der Leitung von Ernest Ansermet

Tausende haben diese Platte ins Herz geschlossen und sie steht auf Platz Eins der Bestenliste von RCA. Während die meisten der vorhandenen Aufnahmen von Ernest Ansermet mit dem Orchestre de la Suisse Romande gemacht wurden, gibt es doch auch einige mit dem Orchester des Pariser Konservatoriums sowie besonders seltene mit Londoner Orchestern, darunter eine mit dem Orchester des Royal Opera House in Covent Garden aus dem Jahre 1959.
Analogue Productions ist ebenso stolz wie begeistert, einen solchen Klassiker wieder neu aufleben zu lassen. Nicht nur für die Musik, die hervorragend ist, sondern auch für die aufwändige Verpackung, der in dieser Edition ein 22-seitiges, reichhaltig bebildertes Booklet dem neuen 5LP 45rpm Box-Set beigelegt ist.
Ein Wort zu 45rpm: Die höhere Geschwindigkeit der laufruhigen LPs, bei denen die Musik auf neun Seiten des Vinyls verteilt ist (die 10. Seite wiederholt Seite 1), reduziert Verzerrungen und Hochfrequenzverluste, da der größere Rillenabstand eine bessere Abtastung Ihres Stereo-Tonabnehmers erlaubt. Aber es ist mehr als nur das Vinyl, das diese Veröffentlichung so besonders macht.
Wenn Sie neu im Thema Ballett sind, wird Ihnen bebilderte Geschichte einige der berühmtesten Produktionen vorstellen - alte Favoriten wie "Der Nussknacker", "Schwanensee" und "Dornröschen" zum Beispiel - aber auch weniger bekannte Kompostionen wie "Carnaval", "Les Sylphides" und "Coppélia".
Unter audiophilen Gesichtspunkten kann es nicht besser werden als diese 200 Gramm nebengeräuschfreien Platten, die von Quality Record Pressings, den Machern der besten LPs der Welt, gepresst werden. Natürlich spiegelt das beste Vinyl das beste Mastering wider, und das ist hier Bernie Grundman gelungen, der vom Original-Analogband gearbeitet hat. Stoughton Printing hat die komplizierte Klappenfaltverpackung fachgerecht produziert.
Das Audiophilia Online Magazine schreibt dazu: »Das ist der Stoff, aus dem die Träume sind. "The Royal Ballet Gala" ist eine der besten RCA-Platten und wurde in der Kingsway Hall in London aufgenommen. Die Stücke berühmter Ballettmusik werden von Orchester, Dirigent und Toningenieur gleichermaßen hervorragend aufgeführt, mit sehr hohem Standard. Das Royal Opera House Orchester zählte damals wie heute zu den besten Opernorchestern.
Dirigent Ansermet hält ein bewegtes Tempo und vermittelt dadurch dem Hörer eher den Eindruck einer Tanzdarbietung als den einer dramatischen Interpretation in einem Konzertsaal. Mit Ausnahme einiger Tschaikowski-Szenen ist die Musik leicht und bleibt es auch unter Ansermets leichter Hand. Jedem Ballett wird die volle Aufmerksamkeit der Musiker zuteil, was in Covent Garden nicht immer erreicht wird während langer Ballettnächte! Die Bedrohung durch die Ewigkeit hat auch ihre Vorteile. Der Klang der Aufnahme ist schlicht umwerfend! Glänzend ist ein Wort, das einem duch den Kopf schießt, präzise ein anderes.
Klanglich haben die Herrn Williamson und Wilkinson ihr beträchtliches Talent genutzt, um das Orchester in großartiger Weise einzufangen. Holzbläser und Streicher leuchten geradezu und hallen wider in einer Weise, die den Hörer in eine Zeit zurücktransportiert, als einfachere Aufnahmetechnik besser war. Die Blechbläser erschallen mit aufregendem Klang und die Schlagzeugeffekte sind von besonderer Musikalität. Sei es ein Knall, Sausen, Rasseln, Knacken oder Schnappen, jeder Schlagzeuger ist genau am richtigen Platz des wunderbaren Soundstage von Kingsway. Sogar der schwer aufzunehmende Klang der Celesta ist in seiner rein mechanischen Form eingefangen. Ihr zarter Klang erzielt große Wirkung im "Nussknacker" – wo er von der linken Bühnenseite her zu hören ist und über die Bühne der Kingsway hin verhallt in funkelnder Schönheit. Wundervoll.«

The Melbourne show on June 17th was The Beatles's sixth and final date of their second Australian visit. Another incredible event that showed Beatlemania at one of its highest points- John, Paul, George and Ringo played their "usual" breathtaking set list in front of a wild and screaming crowd and after more than 50 years the whole thing still feels like pure Rock 'n' Roll.

Virðulegu Forsetar präsentiert ein einstündiges Stück für 11 Blechbläser, Schlagzeug, Elektronik, Orgeln und Klavier. Das Album wurde für einen bestimmten Ort, die Hallgrímskirkja (Hallgrimur-Kirche) in Reykjavik (Island), komponiert und dort aufgenommen. Das Stück hat Englabörns ruhige, elegische Schönheit, verlässt aber die Kürze der exquisiten Miniaturen des ersten Albums zugunsten einer erweiterten Form, die einen langen, langsamen Prozess offenbart.

The avant-garde composer and conductor Pierre Boulez was a titan of post-War experimental classical music. Born in the small cheesemaking town of Montrbrison in central France in 1925, Boulez studied at the Paris Conservatoire with the composer and organist Charles Messiaen and received private tuition from pianist Andrée Vaurabourg; after moving to the Marais district in 1945, he briefly studied with Schoenberg disciple, René Leibowitz, and further influence came from immersion in Balinese gamelan, Japanese classical music and African drumming, among other sources. Earning money by playing an early electronic keyboard called the ondes Martenot on theatre productions, Boulez soon became music director of the Renaud-Barrault theatre company (led by actor/direction Jean-Louis Barrault and his actor wife, Madeleine Renaud), leading to tours of Belgium, Switzerland, Britain and both North and South America. American composer John Cage became an ally, though they subsequently clashed over Cage’s commitment to the role of chance in his compositions, paving the way for an intense and lasting friendship with the German composer, Karlheinz Stockhausen, who arrived in Paris in 1952 to study with Messiaen. In July of that year, the pair attended the International Summer Course for New Music in Darmstadt, leading to contact with Italian composer Luciano Berio and other noteworthy figures. Then, in 1954, with backing from Barrault and Renaud, Boulez began staging a series of concerts of experimental music at the Petit Marigny theatre, titled Le Domaine musical. The pieces collected on this album are all taken from performances staged for the 1957 Domaine musical season, beginning with Berio’s “Serenata I,” conducted by Boulez, which debuted in Paris in March of that year; arranged for flute and fourteen instruments, Berio said that the idea behind the piece was for the solo flute to be confronted by continuously interchanging elements, rather than mere accompaniments or oppositions. Boulez’s own “Sonatine,” composed in 1946 for flute and piano, is a 12-tone piece that evidences Messiaen’s influence, with shades of Asian classical music in places; then, Stockhausen’s monumental “Zeitmasze” or “Time Measures,” a serial composition for five woodwinds, played in different combinations of tempos and speed, was partly inspired by Webern’s principles of homogenous and harmonic textures. Finally, Messiaen’s 1949 work “Cantéyodjayâ,” delivered by pianist Yvonne Loriod, takes it shape from the classical Hindu rhythms of ancient India, as with much of the composer’s oeuvre.
