Ketan Bhatti: Nodding Terms

New music and groove – does it work and does it exist? Musical crossover artist Ketan Bhatti nods ... and delivers proof with his remarkable solo debut Nodding Terms on which he teams up with the German-Icelandic Ensemble Adapter as well as his studio neighbours Paul Frick and Jan Brauer (from Brandt Brauer Frick)! [...] This is music which without fail makes the listener nod along – as per the album title. Not just because of its beat, but because it’s clever, too. Find the album right here.

New Release

Franui: Ständchen der Dinge

Franui celebrate their twenty-fifth year – a welcome occasion for an anniversary album, with many guests and fellow travellers, some new pieces, some old but previously unreleased recordings, and some of their greatest musical moments from the past quarter century, including tracks from albums that have been out of print for years. The rest is history! Find the album right here.

Gnigler: Straight On, Downstairs, 2nd Door Left

Founded in 2013 by the young Austrian saxophonist Jakob Gnigler, the sextet has created its own musical world, full of the unexpected and the unpredictable. The individual versus the collective, composition versus improvisation, listening habits versus artistic intention – everywhere, contrasts are celebrated, established thought pa erns questioned, hierarchies upended. Find the album right here.

Xiaoyong Chen: Imaginative Reflections

The sounds on this album seem to come from another world. They spread through space, then disappear, or rather: fade away, evaporate, crystallize, settle as a sediment. This music is about fading away, about reverberations, echoes. European instruments sound Asian, and Asian instruments are integrated into European art music. Find the album right here.
New Release

Arvo Pärt: Anima

This album is the first-ever compilation of all compositions by Pärt that have been transcribed for saxophone quartet – revealing them, so to speak, without words, “only” through breath, through oscillating columns of air. The Italian Alea Saxophone Quartet master this task brilliantly. Find the album right here.
New Release

Lukas Lauermann: How I Remember Now I Remember How

He plays the cello with celebrated indie bands, writes music for theatre and lm productions, realizes sound improvisations: now Lukas Lauermann presents his solo debut, and invites us to listen into “the great spaces all around” – spaces of memory, chambers of sensation, places of yearning. “Barrier-free modern classical music.” Find the album right here.

Morton Feldman

Crippled Symmetry

Music and carpets? Well, the latter’s slightly irregular patterns certainly inspired Morton Feldman to write his Crippled Symmetry (1983). 
Alban Berg

Songs from the Youth

Even before he became Arnold Schönberg’s student, Alban Berg wrote some 40 Jugendlieder, ’early lieder’: Romantic poetry as mirrored by the Fin de Siècle. 
Morton Feldman

For Bunita Marcus

"This work, which I have dedicated to Bunita Marcus, [...] deals with the death of my mother, and with the notion of a slow death."
