One of the key German composers before Bach with more than 500 surviving individual pieces, Heinrich Schutz wrote mainly church music, and is credited with bringing the Italian style to Germany and continuing its evolution from the Renaissance into the early Baroque. Although he lived most of his long life in Germany, in his twenties Schutz made two visits to Venice. The first was between 1609 and 1613 when he was taught by Giovanni Gabrieli; and the second in the late 1620s to meet and possibly study under Monteverdi. The two trips greatly influenced Schutz's music as he absorbed and began to combine the ornate and theatrical Venetian style with the more understated Lutheran tradition in which he grew up. This album explores his solo cantatas alongside examples of the brilliant and virtuosic Venetian style instrumental music.

A concept album exploring themes of broadcast communications, Radio-Activity marked Kraftwerk's return to more obtuse territory, extensively utilizing static, oscillators, and even Cage-like moments of silence to approximate the sense of radio transmission; a pivotal record in the group's continuing development, the title track – the first they ever recorded in English – is their most fully realized electro-pop effort to date, while "The Voice of Energy" precipitates the robot voice so crucial to their subsequent work.

Considered by many music historians as one of the most important group out of Germany, Faust were certainly ahead of their time. They took their music to unsuspecting heights somewhere in between Can, Velvet Underground, Neu, LA Dusseldorf or Henry Cow but also much farther and can be considered as founding fathers of the Industrial Rock. Having made their debut in 71 in Hamburg, Faust will never stop their groundbreaking and will be always one step ahead of everybody else including the groups above mentioned and are the prime example of Rock In Opposition (RIO) along with Henry Cow. Faust is definitely not for the faint-hearted person and can only be recommended in small doses because it is very dangerous for the sanity of the average proghead.

Although Kraftwerk's first three albums were groundbreaking in their own right, Autobahn is where the group's hypnotic electronic pulse genuinely came into its own. The main difference between Autobahn and its predecessors is how it develops an insistent, propulsive pulse that makes the repeated rhythms and riffs of the shimmering electronic keyboards and trance-like guitars all the more hypnotizing. The 22-minute title track, in a severely edited form, became an international hit single and remains the peak of the band's achievements – it encapsulates the band and why they are important within one track – but the rest of the album provides soundscapes equally as intriguing. Within Autobahn, the roots of electro-funk, ambient, and synth pop are all evident – it's a pioneering album, even if its electronic trances might not capture the attention of all listeners.

La Düsseldorf is Klaus Dinger's side project after the scission of Neu! in 1975. In this musical adventure, Dinger is accompanied by Thomas Dinger and Hans Lampe who also participated to the recording of the third and last Neu! The self titled album "La Dusseldorf" was released in 1976, venturing from avant-garde for concrete noises, manipulated sounds, pre-punk atmospheres. This album has a total disregard for musical convention, the musicians don't hesitate to mix without restriction a bunch of sounds taken from a great variety of musical styles (with pop accents, motoric "electronic" pulses, krautrock weird instrumentals and punk's eccentricity). After this original and diverse collection of experiments, the band recorded their second "Viva" in 1978…

Performing on early 19th-century pianos from the Frederick Historic Piano Collection, competition prizewinners Dmitry Rachmanov, a Juilliard graduate, and Cullan Bryant, a graduate of Manhattan School of Music, explore the interrelationships between the keyboard music of Beethoven and his principal teachers in this fascinating double-album of rarities for piano four-hands, culminating in a revelatory account of the Great Fugue in Beethoven’s own keyboard arrangement. The distinctive sonorities of these highly esteemed period instruments transport the listener back to the time when Beethoven, his teachers or his own pupils, may have performed this music themselves for the first time.

“20 Jahre, 100 Lieder - das sind 5 pro Jahr… damit kommt man nicht ins Guinness-Buch, aber irgendwie schon klar”
Was MONTREAL hier auf ihrem neuen Album singen, beschreibt die Band ganz gut:
Bloß die eigene Nase nicht allzu ernst nehmen, Ball lieber mal etwas flacher halten.
Dabei gibt es dafür eigentlich keinen Grund - und das zeigt vor allem ihr neues Studioalbum “Am Achteck nichts Neues” (VÖ 12.04.2024) noch eindrucksvoller als die sieben Vorgänger. MONTREAL gibt es nun schon seit 20 Jahren: Yonas, Hirsch und Max Power sind alte Schulfreunde und haben bereits als Teenager ihre erste Band gegründet - und an dieser Formation hat sich bis heute nichts geändert. Als alles immer ernster wurde und die Aufnahmen zum Debüt-Album anstanden, fehlte eigentlich nur eins: Geld. Um also die Finanzierung des ersten Albums irgendwie zu stemmen, jobbten die drei oft auf jenen Bierwagen, die der lechzende Volksmund liebevoll und geometrisch korrekt “Achteck” nennt.

The most complete collection available of music by the father of Czech nationalism in music. Má Vlast, The Bartered Bride and the String Quartet ‘From My Life’: all written within a decade of each other, all so fundamental in their different genres in forming a Czech national identity in music that it can seem incredible they were the work of a single composer.

Mit einer himmlischen Stimme, umhüllt von zarten Klangteppichen und verträumten Arpeggiatoren, beginnt Sofia Portanet ihr zweites Album (Ich Bin). Aber dieses heitere und spirituelle Klangvorspiel wird schnell durch den weiteren Verlauf in ein anderes Licht gerückt. Zwischen einer Hommage an den Disco (Unstoppable) und Moroder-ähnliche Bässe (Entre nos lèvres) wird die deutsche Sängerin, die 2020 mit Freier Geist bekannt wurde, schnell zur energischen Königin eines lyrischen Pops mit mitreißenden Refrains. Sofia Portanet zählt als besonders sonnig, wie My Time beweist, ein Song, mit dem sie behauptet, dass die Welt ihr gehöre.
