Matthias Muche: Bonecrusher

Wolfgang Mitterer: temp tracks

Wolfgang Mitterer is much in demand as a composer of operas, concertos, film scores, and theater music (including music for the Salzburg Festival’s Jedermann), for which he has been commissioned by renowned orchestras, ensembles, and opera houses around the world. Here the two-time recipient of the Austrian Film Music Award is releasing terrific “temp tracks”, which is music that serves as the preliminary soundtrack to film sequences until the ‘proper’ music arrives. Find the album right here.

Xiaoyong Chen: Qian & Yan

Xiaoyong Chen’s compositions are, in a manner of speaking, “west- eastern travelling parties”: to the classical inventory of European instruments, he introduces the sounds of Chinese instruments that have several thousands of years of history to them. As part of this process, Chen asks: “Will the art of the future be based on tradition?”, only to add, matter-of-factly: “If so, why?” Find the album right here.
