For his first recording on the Alpha label, Sergey Kasprov, a young Russian artist trained at the Moscow Conservatory, defies the laws of time. He has in fact chosen to create a dialogue between great Baroque geniuses and Russian Romantics: Rameau, Lully, Loeillet, Bach and Scarlatti revised by Tausig, Godowsky and Rachmaninov.In the tradition of Marcelle Meyer, Glenn Gould or, more recently, Alexandre Tharaud, Sergey Kasprov pulls off the tour de force of freeing himself from Baroque interpretative codes and, at the same time, from those of the 19th century, to better get back to the essential.The excellent recording quality attests ideally to the discourse, respectful of the original counterpoint as well as unfailing digital dexterity necessitated by appropriate ornamentation and the amazing sound palette required by late Romanticism, all on a Steinway contemporary with Rachmaninov.

Legendary jazz bassist Ron Carter has since 2002 led a drum-less trio with the late pianist Mulgrew Miller and guitarist Russell Malone, sometimes referred to as the Golden Striker Trio based on the title of their debut album. Miller left the band in 2012 and was replaced by Donald Vega, a younger and very talented pianist who used to be based in Los Angeles. Cocktails at the Cotton Club is the new trio's first CD, recorded live in concert at The Cotton Club in Tokyo, Japan. Due to the instrumental mix and stylistic choice, the group has an atmosphere of high quality chamber music. The dynamic range is somewhat limited and there's nothing flashy or bombastic about their music, but that is on purpose and that is not the point. The point is in the art of improvisation and interplay. The real excitement starts after the themes are stated, and attentive listeners will be rewarded by the wealth of ideas expressed and the beauty of the three masters' improvisation. Highlights include the stunning interplay between Vega and Carter on "My Funny Valentine" and inspired solo by Carter on "Samba De Orfeu". Recommended!

In Domenico Scarlatti’s vast output of 555 keyboard sonatas, there are a small number of works that are especially interesting to musicologists because of characteristics such as figured bass, three‐ or four‐movement structure, and distinctive melodic lines that are particularly appropriate for a highpitched solo instrument. Some experts believe that these works were written for the violin; on this recording, after meticulous research and the discovery of an important new manuscript at the Bibliothèque de l’Arsenal in Paris, the members of Artemandoline propose the fascinating theory that the sonatas may have been composed for the mandolin. Featuring works ranging from the smaller‐scale K77 to the ambitious and technically demanding K88 – which is extremely well suited to the mandolin thanks to its four‐part chords and dynamic nuances – this disc offers a radical reinterpretation of this captivating music.

Vocalion's 2013 reissue of two superb albums from the early 1980s by French orchestra leader Paul Mauriat. "Roma Dalla Finestra" is in fact the score Paul wrote - with Gerard Gambus - for the Japanese film of the same name. Remastered from the original stereo tapes for Vocalion's trademark crystal-clear sound quality. French composer/conductor Paul Mauriat is a classically trained musician who decided to pursue a career in popular music. His first major success came in 1962, as a co-writer of the European hit "Chariot." In 1963, the song was given English lyrics, renamed "I Will Follow Him," and became a number one American hit for Little Peggy March. Mauriat is best remembered for his 1968 worldwide smash "Love Is Blue."

Ace’s odyssey through time and space to bring you this compilation has taken almost as long as the voyages of the Starship Enterprise. The 40th anniversary of the moon landing had yet to be celebrated when this CD was first scheduled for lift-off. It has taken a fair old while to get to the launching pad, but we haven’t Saturn our backsides waiting for mission control to clear us for lift-off. The Ace-tronauts of Steele Road never lost sight of their mission statement – which was to boldly go where no CD of its type had gone before; maybe even to The Final Frontier as far as space-themed compilations go. Nearly five years after the final countdown first began, we are ready for the blast off! “Greatest Hits From Outer Space” offers a stellar collection of music that can truthfully be said to be nothing less than out of this world. Whether you live on Jupiter or in Jesmond, on Venus or in Ventnor, on Pluto or in Prestwich, Ace’s lab-coated boffins have bet their moonboots that, unlike Houston, you won’t have a problem in enjoying this voyage around the galaxy of space-related music. We don’t claim to be definitive in our quest – to be so would require a boxed set, at least – but we do feel that we’ve left no moon rock unturned in an attempt to bring you the best selection of space-related music ever to orbit around your CD player.

Genre: Progressive Electronic, Berlin School | RAR 3% Rec. | Label: SPV/Synthetic Symphony (SPV 2CD 260070)

Shadowlands contains just five tracks over 2 CDs, and as we've come to expect from Schulze, look for plenty of mind expanding explorations into space and loads of calming tranquility. The near 57 minute "The Rhodes Violin" offers up soothing, at times fluttering synth washes, brief spoken word vocals, and a myriad of ethnic Middle Eastern instruments. The epic title track opts for more menace, and will remind some of the early Tangerine Dream material, complete with ominous synth & Mellotron sounds plus those Middle Eastern influences. You'll even find some intriguing space rock mixed with programmed dance rhythms on the intriguing "In Between". With well over 2 hours of material on Shadowlands, there's a lot too digest, and unless you are a real fan of electronic/ambient/space rock, some of this will wear out its welcome pretty quickly, but for those who have followed Schulze throughout this career and don't mind some well executed exploratory sounds, there's plenty to dig into here.

Listening to this beautifully played collection of Schubert’s piano trios, the two completed ones and the lonely single movements, I realized that this is the one recording I have that was made on fortepiano. Other favorites, including the recordings by the Beaux Arts Trio, the lesser known Trio di Trieste, and the more romantic recording by Arthur Grumiaux, Pierre Fournier, and Nikita Magaloff, are on modern instruments. That wouldn’t matter, perhaps, if the performances on this new disc were less convincing. Jan Vermeulen has been recording the Schubert sonatas to great acclaim. He now has added a recording of the trios that is clearly articulated, impassioned, at times even jaunty.
