Take equal measures of Gallagher and Kraftwerk, mix in a 15-year supply of blue body paint and shake with a double-shot of modern marketing savvy and you might have something akin to Blue Man Group. This ambitious second album by New York performance artists cum entrepreneurs Matt Goldman, Phil Stanton, and Chris Wink expands their central artistic contradiction–mainstreaming the alternative–with a propulsive cocktail of rhythm, irony, self-invented instrumentation, and bona fide song structures that feature turns from guest stars Dave Matthews (the music hall dirge "Sing Along") and Tracy Bonham ("Up to the Roof," and with Rob Swift, "Shadows Pt.2"). The conceit is vaguely reminiscent of the Tubes' tongue-in-cheek ode to '80s corporate rock, "The Completion Backwards Principle," right down to being so convincing the irony often melts away. Fans of their live performances will appreciate its wall-to-wall rhythmic thrust and quirky textures, while aficionados and newcomers alike should welcome its surprising, seductive melodies and mature songwriting.

Edding Quartet - Beethoven: String Quartet No.13, Quintet for Piano & Winds (2016) [Official Digital Download 24/96]

Edding Quartet - Beethoven: String Quartet No.13, Quintet for Piano & Winds (2016)

The pairing of the two works on this album is unique in that one comes from the dawn, the other from the dusk of Ludwig van Beethoven’s career. Indeed, whereas the composer wrote the Quintet for winds and piano, op.16, when he was only 26 – the talented young man also excelled as a successful pianist – he did not finish his String Quartet, op.130, until a year before his death. The Edding Quartet proposes here the original version of the work, with the Grosse Fuge, op.133, as finale.

The piano may not be the ideal medium for capturing the expressive possibilities of Glass' style of minimalism, but pianist Bruce Brubaker selects pieces that work well on the instrument. Part of the problem with hearing Glass on the piano is forgetting the sound of his ensemble, and the variety of colors (and volume) they have imparted to similar music. Brubaker begins his recital of works by Glass and Alvin Curran with his transcription of "Knee Play 4" from Einstein on the Beach. It is in fact a lovely piece on the piano if one can put the spectacular power and tonal range of the instrumental version out of one's mind. "Opening" from Glassworks, originally scored for piano, works beautifully on the instrument, and flows as naturally as the C major Prelude from Book I of The Well Tempered Clavier. The two pieces by Curran, Hope Street Tunnel Blues III and Inner Cities II, use a syntax similar to Glass, with a more dissonant tonal vocabulary. Hope Street Tunnel Blues III has ample kinetic energy that gives it an exhilarating momentum.

Label: harmonia mundi | Tracks: 18 | Time: 125:08 min

This double album brings together two recordings that broke new ground in the Beethoven discography. Disc one focuses on the transition from the violin sonata's transition from the Baroque to the Classical, and disc two explores the development of piano trio as it evolves from the Classical into the Romantic. These performances also document the sound of three outstanding period instruments (including Beethoven's own violin!) in superb performances by violinist Daniel Sepec, cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras and pianist Andreas Staier.

Label: Naxos

One of the most ambitious and complex works in Spanish piano repertoire, the picturesque Sanlucar de Barrameda is one of Turina’s true masterpieces, the composer describing it as ‘my homage to this wonderful city of silver… where the salt spray of the ocean is mixed with the aroma of manzanilla.’ The varied pieces that form Trilogia include a grief-stricken dedication to the memory of his daughter and an entertainingly humorous finale filled with quotes from other works. This final volume in the Naxos edition of Turina’s complete piano works concludes with the tantalizingly unfinished Seven Sorrows of the Virgin Mary.
