The Ariel Quartet, distinguished by its virtuosic playing and impassioned interpretations, makes its debut recording pairing two giants of the string-quartet world, Bela Bartok and Johannes Brahms. Both composers stand as significant pillars of the youthful Quartet’s two-decade-long journey. The Ariel Quartet earned its glowing international reputation early on, having formed in Israel when its members were students in middle school. The Ariel now serves as the Faculty Quartet-in-Residence at the University of Cincinnati’s College-Conservatory of Music Debut. This release is the first in a projected series pairing the quartets of Bartok and Brahms. “…a blazing, larger-than-life performance…” (The Washington Post) “…the sum of the quartet is indeed greater than its parts…”(The Strad)

„Froots” to trzeci album w autorskiej części dyskografii Kuby Płużka, jednego z najbardziej niezwykłych polskich artystów młodego pokolenia. Muzyka dojrzałego już chyba w chwili, kiedy po raz pierwszy zobaczył fortepian. Człowieka, który potrafi już wszystko, a mimo to ciągle się rozwija. Wielkiej, wrażliwej osobowości, wprawną ręką prowadzącego od kilku lat rasowy jazzowy kwartet w niezmienionym składzie. Obdarzonego genialną inwencją kompozytora i lidera sterującego zespołem z pewnością celu godną muzyka z kilkudziesięcioletnim doświadczeniem scenicznym i gwiazdorskim autorytetem.

There is the tenor's timbre: worked, carved, finely honed, painstakingly sanded; raw and unpainted, which picks hearing. The sonorous power of Thomas Ibanez's nervous and lyrical Saxophone perfectly combines antagonistic feelings, ranging from brilliance to evanescence, from a slight joviality to an informed depth of mind. Standards and compositions radiate a common intensity, a unifying purpose. Jouvence of the Good Old Times! We guess references, we recognize grids; it is not long, however, to forget themselves in their deployments. Because, the originality of the leader takes full root inside the Edifice. His elegant personality strives to celebrate Tradition again and again.

After an opus in 2012 self-production, made of original compositions revealing an inspired and modern universe, the French saxophonist Thomas Ibanez presents his new album which is part of a great tradition of Hard Bop. He signed with the Jazz Family label and released "If Ever I Would Leave You" in March 2018. Beyond the warm, voluble and powerful sound developed in order to be on the trail of the legendary saxophonist Dexter Gordon, Thomas worked for several years on the repertoire of this new album.

Busoni embodied an essentially recreative approach to the music of the past. His Bach transcriptions reveal an absolute command of intricate polyphony and a limpid clarity. Mozart stood as an aesthetic and technical exemplar while Cramer’s little-known Etudes are adapted for modern piano technique. Busoni preserved the Lutheran austerity of Brahms’s Chorale Preludes for Organ, Op. 122 whereas in the Mephisto Waltz No. 1 he augments Liszt’s heady writing with a super-virtuosity of his own. Wolf Harden I one of the most versatile pianists of his generation. He has enjoyed great success in the Trio Fontenay, an ensemble that he founded in 1980 and with which he has toured to all the world’s major music centres. Harden devotes himself not only to chamber music but, with the same success, to the solo piano repertoire.

Quartet (1996) is an album by the Pat Metheny Group. The album features Pat Metheny on guitar, Lyle Mays on keyboards, Steve Rodby on bass, and Paul Wertico on drums. Most of the tracks were loosely written or improvised, using several unusual instruments. The Group itself never played these songs live, though Metheny played "When We Were Free" with his trio and recorded a live version on the album Day Trip. "As I Am" was played during trio concerts with Michael Brecker. Metheny remarked in a podcast retrospective that the improvisational late-middle portions of, Quartet contain some of the darkest music the Group has ever recorded. He also stated that "When We Were Free" is a personal standout for him, especially Mays's piano solo.
