"The term ‘Northern European Jazz’ often conjures up images of open fjords accompanied by a spacious minimal soundscape alluding to the greatness of mountains and the insignificance of one’s existence. A humbling meditative introspection being the listeners emotional response. ‘Grow With The Flow’ evokes an evolutionary deeper reflection, encouraging the listener to imagine a world without borders, and inspires one to consider each individual’s responsibility in bringing border-less existence into fruition. A fine balance between quiet gentle pacing and a driving yet measured forward motion.

To complement the programme, the Cuban composer Calixto Álvarez proposed a richly augmented version of his Folias Americanas. Originally composed in 2012 for viola da gamba and harpsichord, it takes its inspiration from Marin Marais’ emblematic work, Folies d’Espagne and is dedicated to his daughter Calia Álvarez. In his Folias Americanas each of the variations takes the form of a different musical genre from around the Americas. Chacarera, tango, conga and blues line up to offer a rich panorama of the American musical tradition. Is this new, never before performed version, Calixto Álvarez orchestrates his Folias for three viols, baroque guitar and harpsichord obbligato in keeping with Marais’ suites for three viols.

The first recording by the up-and-coming Takayuki Mihara is three of Beethoven's masterpiece piano sonatas. Dedicated to the memory of his former teacher Akiko Sugitani, who passed away suddenly in 2019, the piety that pervades the entire work adds depth to the music. <Takayuki Mihara graduated from Kaisei Junior High School and Senior High School, and received his B.S. in Pharmaceutical Sciences from Keio University. Later, she studied under Akiko Sugitani, who became her lifelong teacher. She was fascinated by the gentle yet powerful music of her teacher's piano playing, and under her guidance, pursued the pursuit of beautiful sound. She performed with the Prima Vista String Quartet and the Polish Silesian Philharmonic Orchestra, and became passionate about bringing out a variety of tones from the piano.

RUNDMO is a Nordic jazz trio from Trondheim that plays self-composed music with elements of Nordic folk music. With its unique line-up, the band explores a lyrical soundscape, resulting in descriptive and melancholic expressions. The music is varied and can be reminiscent of everything from a soulful walk in the woods to something more rough and mysterious. This spring, the trio will release their new album "Jazz på Madrass". The album takes inspiration from the bedroom, where different types of dreams and sleep are the inspiration behind the music. The album will be released on 1 March 2024 and this is the first concert with the music.

Classical | Label: Stradivarius, Official Digital Download

For their third recording for label Stradivarius, the duo singer & fischer have chosen to devote themselves to four Hispanic flavored works. With little original repertoire ­ despite the opuses that various composers have written for them in recent years ­ transcriptions, arrangements and other adaptations are usual in the ensemble’s work. However, not all works are easy to adapt, and the choice of pieces from among the ‘possibilities’ is often a difficult one. The transcriptions on this recording are the result of a process of reflection that goes back to the duo’s genesis. Their first attempts at De Falla or Granados took place in the 90s, a time when the youthfulness of the performerscertainly contributed to the enthusiasm essential to any musical interpretation, but when a lack of experience was abrake on any idea of immortalizing their concert attempts.

Classical | Label: Genuin, Official Digital Download

Gregor Meyer, director of the GewandhausChor, fulfills a dream by returning to "his" instrument, the organ, and recording an album at Genuin that gathers sounds from Saxon organs of an organ-building dynasty: the Kreutzbach family from Borna. Meyer plays organs from three eras, taking us through Saxony from Johanngeorgenstadt to Wiederau and Zwickau-Marienthal. Meyer's organ playing utilizes the full range of the highly characteristic and historically valuable organs to faithfully and differentially portray music by Johann Sebastian Bach, Georg Böhm, and Max Reger. A must for lovers of historical, regionally anchored organ craftsmanship!

From the Earth to the stars, from darkness to light: the young, award-winning pianist Andrey Denisenko, acclaimed in Germany and Russia, has compiled significant works of literature for his new Genuin CD. The creators of Robert Schumann's "Kreisleriana", Johannes Brahms' late Fantasies, and the master Johann Sebastian Bach's magnificent "Chaconne" for the violin (arranged by Brahms) transformed suffering and deprivation into musical gems. These works demand not only a technically outstanding pianist but also an artist who thinks and breathes in grand structures. Andrey Denisenko possesses both qualities and plays these masterpieces with verve and excellent clarity.

The music on this album is the result of decades of research and many lecture-recitals performed across the US, with publication of a book of scores bearing the same title. We do not pretend to know whether Shakespeare the playwright played the lute — or whether the historical figure of Shakespeare the playwright existed at all. But we know that the plays were a collaborative effort written and produced in concert with several of the best literary and musical figures of the Elizabethan/Jacobean age, and indication for music in Shakespeare plays was as ubiquitous as any other stage direction.

In recent years, Konstantin Zvyagin has been working intensively on the music of Richard Wagner. This work resulted in the Suite in Eight Pictures of Wagner's Ring recorded here, with pieces from the Ring of the Nibelung transcribed by him for piano. Performing entire orchestral works on one instrument is of course a challenge - also in terms of pianistic virtuosity. But reduction also forces clarity: his transcription enables us to hear Wagner's music anew. The suite is framed by three late piano works by Liszt.

This CD brings together three prolific but little-known British composers: Dorothy Howell (1898-1982), Pamela Harrison (1915-90), and Madeleine Dring (1923-77). Working in the same country at the same time, these composers had much in common. All studied at either the Royal Academy or Royal College of Music, and went on to have dual careers as composer-performers. They wrote tonal music in a style that would fall out of fashion in the later twentieth century, which has certainly contributed to their disappearance from concert halls. And above all, they composed with a great sense of humour. The music on this disc sparkles with wit and energy. In the mid-twentieth century the two piano combination was popular both in the concert hall and for light entertainment. It proved a perfect medium for composers who liked to bring a lightness of touch to their work, allowing them to write pieces that were fun both to play and to watch.

Born in Prague in 1770, Anton Reicha moved to Bonn in 1785, where he played violin and flute in the court orchestra, along with Ludwig van Beethoven. The two, who were the same age, struck up a close friend- ship, and initially it seemed that Reicha was the more successful of the two, as already in 1787, he managed to get his first symphony and several smaller works performed in Bonn. By contrast, Beethoven worked on and abandoned a symphony in c minor during this time, and his two large-scale cantatas from 1790 do not seem to have been performed during his lifetime. Reicha, however, was also far more academically inclined and entered the University of Bonn in 1789, although possibly due to familial pressure, whereas Beethoven left for Vienna in 1792.
