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.

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.

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.

Les Espaces Électroacoustiques

Is a musical performance “historically informed”? Does it do justice to the “original sound”? Is it even possible to truly experience the “original idea” behind a composition when it is performed with “modern instruments”? We are familiar with questions such as these in connection with the interpretation of so-called early music. On this double album they are rigorously applied to so-called new music. Find the album right here.
