Dive into the intricacies of Rachmaninoff's Preludes, Op. 23 & 32 [24], as brought to life by the skilled hands of pianist Maurizio Zaccaria. The journey commences with the ethereal "Prelude" from the 5 Morceaux de fantaisie, Op. 3. This piece, composed when Rachmaninoff was merely 19, showcases his early brilliance, hinting at the profound compositions that would follow. The Op. 23 preludes, written during a period of personal turbulence for Rachmaninoff, reflect a range of emotions. The F-Sharp Minor Prelude exudes melancholy, while the B-Flat Major Prelude captivates with its lyrical beauty. The D Minor Prelude, known for its powerful chords, adds a dramatic flair, leading seamlessly into the bright and majestic D Major Prelude. Each prelude in this set unveils a facet of Rachmaninoff's emotional depth.

Prince-Bishop Carl’s musical taste was greatly influenced by the musicians of Emperor Leopold I’s Hofkapella in Vienna. The archives at Kroměříž often have unique copies of music by the court composers. In the early 1670s, Prince-Bishop Carl even began a personal correspondence with the then Vize-Hofkapellmeister, Johann Heinrich Schmelzer (c.1620/23-1680), a virtuoso violinist and, at that period, also responsible for much of the official court dance music. Schmelzer’s early reputation as violinist was based on the influence of his early printed collection, Sonatæ unarum fidium (1664), and his Sonata Quarta is the longest piece. The first section of this sonata is constructed on 52 repetitions of the descending major tetrachord in D.

CAMERATA MEDIOLANENSE are one of these extremely rare musical gems that are hard to categorise. The Italians defy all expectations and transcend the usual conventions about formats, style, and how to generally compose and perform music. With the sixth studio album "Atalanta Fugiens" ("Atalanta Fleeing"), CAMERATA MEDIOLANENSE return to what might be dubbed their 'classic style', which means a strong set of percussion from the rhythm section with light touches of the keyboards achieving a perfect balance with the soaring melodies performed by all vocalists consisting of the wonderful sopranos Carmen, Chiara, and Desirée in the lead as well as harmonious choirs.

Mike Paradinas, veteran producer and Planet Mu label owner has written a new album called ‘Grush' and it's full of weird bangers that reclaim the 'dance' part of the woeful term IDM. A back-to-first-principles record, inspired in part by the group of artists IDM was coined for; melodic dance music that didn't come out of urban scenes, but interpreted them from a distance.

A meditation on the beauty of nature and the fate of the planet, “This Rock We’re On: Imaginary Letters” is a multi-movement work by the acclaimed composer Mike Holober. Written for jazz orchestra, voice, cello, and percussion, it features art songs set for chamber ensemble that take the form of imaginary letters to or from selected “protagonists” – naturalist authors, artists, and activists who dedicated their lives to appreciating and protecting the earth we inhabit. Each of the vocal works is followed by an instrumental jazz orchestra piece that reflects upon the text of the letter. Recorded and premiered by the GRAMMY® nominated Gotham Jazz Orchestra in June 2023, a double album is scheduled for release on 14th of June 2024.

Fauré’s two cello sonatas are compact, beautifully written works whose musical language, with its many subtle changes of tonality and gift for melody, has been described as conveying ‘the power of tranquil thought’. Written in the summer of 1917, during the First World War, the neglected First Sonata begins with a troubled Allegro, followed by an eloquent Andante and a sparkling Finale. The C minor Andante of the Second Sonata has its origin in a Chant funèbre commissioned for the celebration in May 1921 of the centenary of the death of Napoleon.

Theatrical goth glam perfect for self-expressive folks that indulge in new wave, glam rock and queer anthems. Modishly reinventing their 80s Scottish post punk influences (Talking Heads and The Associates) with a theatrical approach, Walt Disco (James Potter, Lewis Carmichael, David Morgan, Finlay McCarthy, Charlie Lock and Jack Martin) have captured the hearts of many with their queer modern art-pop aesthetic. In typical rebellious punk fashion, the glam rockers are also constantly challenging the gender divide and encouraging discussion of self-exploration and love in the digital age.
