Bach's cantatas form an inexhaustibly rich corpus of the highest musical inspiration, embracing all the compositional tendencies of his time and thus of his own music. The two masterpieces coupled here invite us to measure his evolution over a decade. In Weimar, with the Cantata BWV 21, we see him in a period of experimentation, turning to the model of Buxtehude to express a vivid pietism. In Leipzig, with the Cantata BWV 76, we sense the mastery of a composer using all his resources in a vertiginous synthesis to the glory of God.

A popular skatepunk group based out of Berlin, Germany, ZSK's hard-hitting blend of political, hardcore, and hook-driven punk rock invokes names like Die Toten Hosen, Bad Religion, and Rise Against. Founded in 1997, ZSK were one of the leading lights of the German political punk scene during the late '90s and early aughts, releasing a string of fiery singles and a trio of well-received albums before calling it quits in 2007. They returned to the stage in 2011, and two years later released their long-awaited fourth studio album, Herz für die Sache, via People Like You Records. Live für die Sache, a CD/DVD concert LP, followed in 2016.

Growing up in Vienna, with its great Lied tradition, Hans Gál had written about 100 songs before leaving secondary school. He later destroyed them, along with all his other works composed prior to 1910, but between 1910 and 1921 he wrote many more. Except for the five songs of Op. 33, these were never published, and Gál himself would later refer to them as ‘laid aside’. Many of these songs were publicly performed at the time, however, often with the composer at the piano.

When deciding on the repertoire for his début recital, James Newby’s first choice fell on An die ferne Geliebte, songs that he had been performing ever since the beginning of his career. But Beethoven’s song cycle – and perhaps even more so the quasi-operatic Adelaide – also sets a tone for the entire programme, that of longing and of wanting to be elsewhere, near the distant beloved. These are emotions that Schubert, perhaps more than any other composer, has plumbed in depth, and Newby went on to select five of his songs that in various ways depict the restlessness and loneliness of the eternal wanderer.

Trio, the minimalists of Neue Deutsche Welle, have made far better pieces than DaDaDa. Some of these pieces, which underline the genius of this band, can be heard on this album. Very suitable for getting to know and love trio. One should not expect more, however, one should look for more extensive publications.

Ian Bostridge continues his new exploration of Schubert song cycles with a recording of Die schöne Müllerin, together with pianist Saskia Giorgini. Die schöne Müllerin (1823) was Schubert’s first song cycle, and simultaneously Bostridge’s first extended introduction to the Lied and all its wonders. Schubert initially conceived the cycle together with poet Wilhelm Müller as a party game among friends, but gradually got captivated by the profundity of this apparently naïve love story. Bostridge is equally fascinated by the way in which this playful, folk-inspired piece gradually transforms into a cosmic lullaby in the final lines of the last song ‘des Baches Wiegenlied’. For pianist Giorgini, the key to - but also the greatest challenge of - interpreting Schubert’s music, and particularly Die schöne Müllerin, lies in the oceanic experience and hypnotic power of repetition.

This is a very satisfying account of ‘Die Zauberflöte‘, principally on account of Böhm’s handling of the score. He inspires the Berlin Philharmonic to convey a Masonic ‘gravitas’ which is in keeping with the philosophy of Enlightenment Reason which lurks behind the pantomime elements of this unusual work. You will certainly find deliberate speeds here, which may not be to your taste if you like fleet, revisionist, original-instrument Mozart. Vocally it’s the women in this recording that have had a bad press: but Evelyn Lear has some lovely tones in her voice even if there are occasions when Pamina’s music presents her with challenges.

For Verdi, Johann Strauss (son) was a “brilliant colleague”, but Johannes Brahms also admitted that he was “the only one to envy” among all composer colleagues. From the South American hinterland to the large concert hall in Japan, the "fascination of Strauss" still captivates people worldwide today.

Gustav Mahler (1860-1911) - austrian conductor who greatly enhanced the reputation of the Vienna Philharmonic Orchestra. As a composer his Romantic style was much influenced by Brahms, Wagner and Bruckner. His nine symphonies (and an unfinished tenth) were slow to gain international recognition but are now highly regarded.

The reputation that precedes her is more powerful than her already impressive vocal range. Nina Hagen, a self-confessed UFO believer and Mother of Punk, is known for making public appearances. That she is first and foremost an excellent musician (and actress) is often neglected. Wrong, as their new CD proves somewhere in the world. Together with the 13-member "The Capitol Dance Orchestra" she has achieved a masterpiece.

Last's trademark was arranging pop hits in a big-band style; his series of "party albums" became equally well-known. Over the course of his career, he sold well over 50 million albums…

The idea is already good - the so valuable ones for our food and healthy spices are moved musically. The CD is extremely sound-nice, the harp fits excellently to to the wind instruments and the other Quadro Nuevo - members are often present, so that one, actually, almost from a product of this formation can talk. During a well-balanced spicy meal this had to go well-balanced spicy music always resonate in the background!
