EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue&Log) ~ 680 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 338 Mb (incl 5%) | Time: 01:54:02

Genre: Minimalism, Opera | Label: Orange Mountain Music | # 0071/OMM5004 | Scans included

Philip Glass' opera from 2009 explores the life of scientist Johannes Kepler though a series of dramatic scenes with two hours of Glass' music. Kepler in many ways hearkens back to Glass' portrait operas of the early 1980s and continues the composers interest in scientists after having also written operas on Einstein and Galileo. The opera premiered at the Landestheater Linz in 2009 as part of Linz 09, the European Cultural Capital, and continues the amazing 30 year collaboration between Glass and the conductor Dennis Russell Davies, the music director of both the Landestheater Linz and its orchestra, the Bruckner Orchester Linz who has also recorded Glass' music extensively for the Orange Mountain Music label including Glass Symphonies 6, 7, and 8, and Glass' large scale opera The Voyage which was originally written for the Metropolitan Opera.

The unprecedented expansion of music in the age of enlightenment
The eighteenth century is probably the most extraordinary period of transformation Europe has known since antiquity. Political upheavals kept pace with the innumerable inventions and discoveries of the age; every sector of the arts and of intellectual and material life was turned upside down.

The second concerto is Glass's 'Concerto for Saxophone Quartet', performed by its dedicatees, the internationally renowned Raschèr Saxophone Quartet who premiered the piece at the Schleswig-Holstein Music Festival in 1995.

Philip Glass - Cello Concerto No.2 'Naqoyqatsi' (2013)
Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra - Dennis Russell Davies - Matt Haimovitz, cello

EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue&Log) ~ 182 Mb (incl 5%) | Mp3 (CBR320) ~ 123 Mb (incl 5%) | Scans included
Genre: Minimalism | Label: Orange Mountain Music | # 0087 | Time: 00:39:33

In 2001, Philip Glass composed the music for the film Naqoyqatsi: Life as War. It was the last film in a trilogy by director Godfrey Reggio that featured only images and music. When the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra invited Glass to be a creative director for its Boundless Series during the 2011-12 season, Glass thought of his cello concerto and its possible life beyond film. The CSO commissioned the Cello Concerto No.2 - Naqoyqatsi and gave the composer the opportunity to have it reborn as a proper concerto. The resulting recording is drawn from the live performances. This dynamic seven-movement work is conducted here by long-time Glass champion Dennis Russell Davies with soloist Matt Haimovitz.

C’est une musique sortie du cœur d’une nuit sans Lune que nous offre Zad Moultaka sur les trois pièces servies ici. Le Nouvel Ensemble Moderne (NEM) nous faisait découvrir pour notre plus grand plaisir la musique du compositeur libanais lors de son premier concert cette saison et ces enregistrements, réalisés au Québec en 2012 et 2013, en rendent le pouvoir évocateur avec brio, Lorraine Vaillancourt dirigeant son ensemble avec sa clarté habituelle. Percussions obsessives, riche palette sonore (concerto pour cymbalum avec Alexandru Sura, concerto pour guitare avec Pablo Màrquez) et images en abondance, la musique de Moultaka est forte et elle transporte l’auditeur en des lieux qui valent vraiment le détour. Une belle découverte.
