FLAC (tracks) 24-bit/48 kHz | Time - 62:06 minutes | 532 MB
Studio Master, Official Digital Download | Artwork: Front Cover

'Die Mährischen Volkslieder von 1922, Zdenkas Variationen und die zahlreiche Miniaturen, die Cathy Krier auf ihrem Janácek-Doppel-Album präsentiert, hört man so gut wie nie. Doch nicht nur wegen dieser durchaus interessanten Stücke ist die Einspielung der jungen Luxemburgerin bemerkenswert. Auch den bekannten Zyklen Auf verwachsenem Pfade und Im Nebel und der Sonate 1.X.1905 gewinnt sie neue Blickwinkel ab. So ergibt sich eine beeindruckende Gesamtschau des mährischen Meisters, bei der nur wenige, aus Kriers Sicht allenfalls musikhistorisch interessante Jugendwerke fehlen.

Bach is considered by many people to have been the greatest composer in the history of Western music. Bach's main achievement lies in his synthesis and advanced development of the primary contrapuntal idiom of the late Baroque, and in the basic tunefulness of his thematic material. He was able to successfully integrate and expand upon the harmonic and formal frameworks of the national schools of the time: German, French, Italian, and English, while retaining a personal identity and spirit in his large output.

With Václav Jan Tomášek we find ourselves at the furthermost border marking the realm of the Music from 18th Century Prague cycle. Without his music, however, the edition would not have been complete. Shortly after his arrival in Prague, Tomášek became renowned for his piano playing skills, later winning the moniker of the “Music Pope”. Not only was he an outstanding pianist and fruitful composer, but he also became a sought-after music teacher. His students included composer Jan Václav Hugo Voříšek, famous critic Eduard Hanslick as well as a number of virtuoso pianists.

R&B / Funk / Jazz Funk / Contemporary R&B / Urban / Quiet Storm

This was one of Mtume's '80s "sophisti-funk" projects, with a mix of socially conscious lyrics, love songs, and uptempo cuts, plus collective vocals and sparing production and arrangements. The title cut was a huge R&B hit, peaking at number two and even generating some crossover pop action. Mtume got two other R&B smashes, one in the Top 20, and the album proved one of his best. A former jazz percussionist, Mtume moved into urban contemporary and funk in the late '70s and became one of the more successful producers and performers in both styles during the '80s. The son of the great jazz saxophonist Jimmy Heath, Mtume was a conga player and percussionist who recorded and toured with Miles Davis and was featured on albums by the Heath Brothers, Sonny Rollins, Herbie Hancock, Joe Henderson, and Freddie Hubbard.
