Celli Monighetti - Metamorphoses (2012)
Contemporary Classical | Louth Contemporary Music Society LCMS1202 | 2012 | 58:06 | EAC (FLAC, cue, log) | Full Scans | Various File Hosts | 264 MB
Celli Monighetti Octet, Maeve O'Hara and Ileana Waldenmayer (waterphones)

Dmitri Yanov-Yanovsky’s (b. 1963) intricate fantasy on a 12th-century French motet, Perotin’s “Viderunt Omnes”, opens a remarkable programme of contemporary music for cellos and percussion. Formed in Basle in 2002, Celli Monighetti demonstrate an extraordinary range of techniques and timbres that run from viol-like purity to synthetic intensity. We also get Franghix Ali-Zadeh’s (b. 1947) blend of Easter and Western conventions, “Shyshtar Metamorphoses”.

EAC Rip | Flac (Image + cue + log) | 1 CD | Full Scans | 337 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Ondine | Catalog Number: 1251

The Turangalîla-Symphonie is one of Messiaen’s stand-out masterpieces from the 1940s, and is well known for its large orchestral forces and prominent parts for both the piano and the rarer electro-acoustic ondes Martenot. Although hailed as one of the great milestones in 20th century classical music, Turangalîla is an approachable work, divided into ten discreet movements that depict themes of love, using recurrent musical images, motifs and reference points.

Rarely has a production of Verdi's "Otello" taken place in such a prestigious location, the courtyard of the Palazzo Ducale in Venice. Directed by Francesco Micheli, this special outdoor "event production" of the Gran Teatro La Fenice supports the claim that "Venice is asserting itself more than ever on a global scale as one of the great capitals of music" (GB Opera).

Fifth House Ensemble - Excelsior (2014)
Contemporary Classical | Cedille Records CDR 90000 148 | 2014 | 63:28 | EAC (FLAC, cue, log) | Full Scans | Various File Hosts | 267 MB
Fifth House Ensemble

A new Chicago-based chamber group, the Fifth House Ensemble, presents their debut recording Excelsior. They come across as a very capable outfit with fine readings of four contemporary works, each work with its own more-or-less post-modern qualities, some rather firmly in the realm of radical tonality.The title work, a short chamber opera by Caleb Burnhans (b. 1980) that was composed in 2012, features an ultra-tonal panorama with some ritualistic repetition and lyrical diatonic matter-of-factness that centers at the end around a folkishly modal part for soprano.

"As our awards enter their fourth decade, we've paused and looked back over the first 30 years. It's gratifying to see how many of the recordings singled out for the prestigious Record of the Year have gone on to become classics of the catalogue. (...) Then there are the discs that shaped careers - violinists Nigel Kennedy (in Elgar) and Maxim Vengerov (in Prokofiev and Shostakovich) - to which you might add The Tallis Scholars' stunning disc of Masses by Josquin Desprez, a disc that elevated Early Music to the "mainstream". ~Grammophone

Schwarz, Seattle Symphony - Pfitzner: Symphony In C; Schumann: Konzertstuck For 4 Horns (2012)
EAC Rip | Flac (Image + cue + log) | 1 CD | Full Scans | 304 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Naxos | Catalog Number: 8572770

The musical expression of German Romanticism is the theme of this disc. The trajectory of Schumann’s Konzertstück, Op 86, written for four horns and orchestra, goes from heroism to introspection. Two of his Symphonic Etudes, Op 13, were orchestrated by no less a figure than Tchaikovsky, while Albert Parlow orchestrated four of Brahms’ most exciting Hungarian Dances. Mendelsssohn’s Overture to his Ballad Opera Die Heimkehr aus der Fremde (Song and Stranger) embodies classical virtues. Anton Webern’s Langsamer Satz for string quartet has been vibrantly orchestrated by Gerard Schwarz. Hans Pfitzner, one of the last representatives of the movement, is represented by his concise, melodic Symphony in C major.
