"… it’s music that we can never know well enough, especially in revelatory performances like these. The playing thrives on a close, intense and uncannily natural ambience (all except the violin sonatas were recorded in the Lutheran Church of Saint Catherine, St. Petersburg, Russia). Philip Borg-Wheeler’s liner notes make absorbing reading." ~audiophile-audition

The music of Mieczyslaw Weinberg is finally beginning to get the hearing it has long deserved. Weinberg’s lifetime spanned the 20th century: born 1919 in Warsaw, he died 1996 in Moscow, in semi-obscurity. Along the way, his allies and supporters had included Dmitri Shostakovich, who considered him one of the great composers of the age. This double album with the Kremerata Baltica, recorded in Neuhardenberg and Lockenhaus, makes a good case for that claim. Effectively a portrait album, it begins with Weinberg’s extraordinary Violin Sonata No. 3, brilliantly performed by Gidon Kremer, and proceeds from chamber music works (the Sonatina op. 46, the Trio op. 48) to strikingly-contrasting compositions for string orchestra.

One of China’s leading contemporary composers, Jia Daqun has often drawn on the traditional music of his native country. Flavour of Bashu derives its themes from Sichuan opera with its astringency, rhythmic uncertainty and distinctive piquancy. The Prospect of Coloured Desert is one of his best-loved works, composed for Yo-Yo Ma’s Silk Road Project. Counterpoint of Times is a chamber concerto of fascinating complexity, whilst the String Quartet has been enriched with folk tunes and vivid performing techniques.

The Karlsruhe-based Josef Schelb (1894-1977) is one of the better-kept secrets of twentieth-century German music. His output was substantial: he lost most of his early music in a bombing raid in 1942, but as if to make up for lost time wrote some 150 more works after that. These four, for clarinet in various chamber combinations, show his music emerging from the influence of Hindemith and Berg. They have a freewheeling energy, contrapuntal command and rhythmic charge of its own often animated by a touch of devilish humour.

The rediscovery of an outstanding composer, Rudi Stephan, who was born in Worms in 1887 and who is now almost completely forgotten. But Stephan, who died in 1915 in the First World War, left a body of works that is definitely worth rediscovering.

Kevin Raftery is an American composer who has been working in the UK since 1989, and also plays bassoon and sings contemporary vocal music. His work is thoroughly modern, without classical limitations, but is also in turn lyrical, tuneful, dramatic and serene, giving ppeal to more than just fans of modernist music. In fact this is top-class post-modern work. While the Quartet and Quintet are formal works, the Pleasantries suite is full of wit, based on figure of speech expressions.
