Paul Lewis is today regarded as one of the leading pianists of his generation, having won the most coveted prizes of the great classical institutions, for both his concert career and his recordings on harmonia mundi, topped by three Gramophone Awards including Record of the Year in 2008. He is also the first pianist in the history of the BBC Proms to have played the complete Beethoven concertos in a single season (2010). Early in 2011, Paul Lewis embarked on a two-year concert tour devoted to the works written by Schubert in the last six years of his life.

On this 2012 release, award-winning pianist Paul Lewis turns his attention back to to Franz Schubert, the other key focus of his concert career and the other pillar of his discography. Schubert's Piano Sonata, D.845 was the first of his three sonatas to be published during his lifetime. In July of 1825 Schubert wrote a long letter to his parents, in which he stated: "They particularly enjoyed the variations from my new sonata for piano solo, which I performed quite successfully, and several people assured me that under my fingers the keys began to sing. If this is sincere, it makes me very happy since I cannot stand the wretched hacking which is typical of even excellent pianists, as it pleases neither the ear nor the heart".

András Schiffs reputation as one of the great interpreters of the work of Franz Schubert is long-established. He has always maintained that Schuberts music is amongst the most moving ever written. Schiff underlined the point on his ECM New Series album with the C Major fantasies at the end of the 1990s, and he does so again on this remarkable recording, on which two Schubert sonatas, the Musical Moments, four Impromptus (D 935), the Hungarian Melody and an Allegretto are addressed on a period instrument, the fortepiano.

Of the four or five Kevin Coyne albums that fans routinely describe as his best ever, Marjory Razorblade is by far the best known in the wider world, a consequence not only of the enormous critical splash it made upon its original release in 1973, but also because of the ripples it continued sending out long after the fact. Four years later, Sex Pistol Johnny Rotten singled out the album's "Eastbourne Ladies" as one of his all-time favorite records, while the strumming, thrumming "Marlene" is one of those records whose failure to become a monster hit single continues to baffle and bewilder. (Even Virgin thought so, as they proved when they gave it a second chance in 1977.) Yet "Marlene" is just one highlight amid a storm-tossed sea of the things.

The B-Flat Symphony is the product of a man who had heard, and remembered, a great deal of Haydn and Mozart. One may turn up one's nose at its lack of originality, but one can hardly deny its geniality and charm.

Widely-praised award-winning vocalist Jazzmeia Horn makes her debut with A Social Call, recorded with an all-star acoustic jazz lineup. Horn draws from a deep well of influences on her interpretations: she remakes standards such as West Of The Moon and I Remember You but is equally adept tackling the hard bop of Afro Blue and Moanin' or the gospel-leaning staples Wade In The Water and Lift Every Voice And Song. The album features Horn's readings of two songs associated with one of her biggest inspirations, Betty Carter: the title track and Tight. She also ventures into R&B on the much-covered Philly soul number People Make the World Go Round and I'm Going Down, a top 20 hit for Mary J. Blige, first done by Rose Royce in the 1970s.

Simbiose combines two of Brazil’s most thoughtful young guitarists Pedro Martins (winner of the 2015 Montreal Jazz Festival Electric Guitar Competition) and Daniel Santiago for a release that confirms the tradition of Brazilian jazz guitar continues into a new generation. The two join forces in their unbridled creativity, expanding the language and literature of their instruments all while maintaining sensitivity to the distinct nature of being “Brasileiro”.

Fusing futurist rock and spectral electronics with elegant atmospheres and wild guitars, To The Bone references the hugely ambitious Progressive Pop records that inspired Wilson in his teens (Peter Gabriel’s So, Talk Talk’s Colour of Spring, Tears for Fears Seeds of Love etc). Lyrically, the album’s eleven tracks encompass the paranoid chaos of the post-truth era and the creeping self-loathing of the technology age, as well as steely fly-on-the-wall observations of the everyday lives of religious fundamentalists and a welcome shot or two of wide-eyed escapism. A gloriously dynamic Modernist Pop record, To The Bone is Steven Wilson's fifth offical solo album and it's a high definition snapshot of the disconcerting times we live in.
