Jesus Torres - Manatial de Luz

Jesus Torres - Manatial de Luz
ID: KAI0013012
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Chamber Music
Subcollection: Piano

Jesus Torres (born in Saragossa, 1965) is one of the key figures in a very talented generation of Spanish composers who have made a significant contribution to the further development of music in Europe. While they share neither a style nor an ideational background, they do share their point of departure: artistically speaking, they are all "grandchildren" of the great innovators of the post-war period; they came to music after the avant-garde had already gained a permanent, emphatic foothold at the academies - and begun their subsequent march into aesthetic isolation. In order to break free from this, Torres and his colleagues set off on highly individual and divergent musical paths that, viewed as a whole, still set a remarkable example.

Michael Jarrell - Cassandre - a spoken opera for ensemble and actress

Michael Jarrell - Cassandre - a spoken opera for ensemble and actress
ID: KAI0012912
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Opera Collection

It's stretching the conventional, technical definition of the term to call Swiss composer Michael Jarrell's spoken monodrama "Cassandre" an opera, but that's the composer's description of it, and as such, it ought to be respected. It does consist of a musical narrative accompanying a verbal narrative, so even though it doesn't involve singing, it comes closer to standard opera than some pieces that are so designated. Also, the fact that it is so compelling as a unified musical and dramatic entity makes its definition seem less consequential; it's fully successful in using music and story to draw the listener into the protagonist's world. "Cassandre" has received numerous international performances since its 1994 premiere and has been translated into a variety of languages. In its form, popularity, subject matter (the protagonist's reflection on the trauma of war), emotional impact, and to some extent its musical style, it strongly resembles Marc Neikrug's haunting 1980 "music-drama" "Through Roses."

"Cassandre" is based on a text by Christa Wolf that actress Astrid Bas delivers with urgency and poignant dramatic restraint. Jarrell's score for chamber ensemble is notable for the evocative subtlety of its depiction of the Trojan prophet's state of mind as she recounts the horrors of the war. Jarrell avoids the obvious -- the big rhetorical gestures -- that would seem to be appropriate for such a dramatic and grim story, and instead creates a soundworld of gossamer, dream-like ethereality to underscore "Cassandre"'s intimate musings. His orchestration is incandescent, and the music is simply beautiful in its prismatically evolving textures. For a piece that rarely rises above a whisper, it makes a surprisingly visceral impact. IRCAM's Ensemble InterContemporain, led by Susanna Mälkki, plays the challenging score with exceptional grace and delicacy. Kairos' sound is immaculate, as is typical for its releases. Highly recommended for fans of new music.

Mauricio Sotelo - Wall of Light - Music for Sean Scully

Mauricio Sotelo - Wall of Light - Music for Sean Scully
ID: KAI0012832
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Subcollection: Chamber Ensemble

At the interface between contemporary music and flamenco, Sotelo has progressed to become one of the leading European artists of his generation. Possessed by curiosity about sounds - which haunted him even in his dreams - he absorbed sonic impressions from the world around him. There was no piano at home, but the guitar was omnipresent: pop music, Jimi Hendrix, experimental jazz, and above all flamenco and 'cante jondo', the tragic and highly emotional vocal music of the oppressed.

Morton Feldman - Something Wild (Music for film)

Morton Feldman - Something Wild (Music for film)
ID: KAI0012292
CDs: 1
Type: CD
Collection: Contemporary music
Subcollection: Film Music

With his disconcertingly hypnotic, excitingly oscillating music, the American Morton Feldman has become a cult figure in recent years. Now, recordings of hitherto unpublished compositions for film are available for the first time on a cd. When we imagine Feldman, we think of pure, crystalline music. But we do not think of wide, soft sounds, that do describe paintings through their power, like you would expect in Hollywood productions. We do not know him like that. On this cd we have two pieces that give notice of the narrow liason with painting, (Willem de Kooning, Jackson Pollock). Being in the present with the sound, this time music with stories and history: this is how we experience this extraorbitant dramatic art by the fascinating recording by ensemble recherche.
