Herbert von Karajan’s 1975 Mozart Requiem is of the grand ceremonial type with large choral forces and full orchestra accompaniment–all of which sounds quite massive compared to more recent period-style performances.

Following on the 2015 release of Mozart's Requiem, Masaaki Suzuki and his Bach Collegium Japan has gone on to record the composers Mass in C minor, K427 the 'Great Mass'. As the nickname indicates it is a work of unusual proportions for a mass of the Classical period or would have been so, had Mozart completed it. It is not known for what occasion Mozart intended the work, but a letter to his father Leopold dated 4 January 1783 indicate that he may have committed himself to writing it in connection with his marriage to Constanze and a planned visit to Salzburg. A performance of parts of the Mass did take place in Salzburg in October 1783, with Constanze performing the prominent soprano part.

George Thoroughgood first released "Bad to the Bone" in 1982. The disc was his major label debut, but little had changed from his previous approach: the album was still full of the straight-ahead hard-hitting blues-based rock his following had come to expect. Not surprisingly, little about that approach has changed in the decades following, which is one of the reasons the 2007 reissue still sounds relevant. The sound of his band, the Destroyers, can still peel paint, and the covers of Albert King, Jimmy Reed, and John Lee Hooker are full of bar-band bravado. Naturally, the title track, which has grown into an FM radio classic over the years, still shines, as does Thoroughgood's stinging slide work.

"Your Wilderness" is the eleventh studio album by British Rock band The Pineapple Thief. Musically, the album represents a marked change in direction and takes TPT away from Magnolia's more 'pop' orientated production. On Your Wilderness, the band has allowed itself -plus a dream team of contributors - to perform without any inhibitions. Bruce Soord has drawn inspiration from his Progressive roots in order to provide a springboard for the ongoing creative growth of The Pineapple Thief. The album features several known guest musicians, including Gavin Harrison (Porcupine Tree, King Crimson), John Helliwell (Supertramp), and Geoffrey Richardson (Caravan).

The release, Bahamas Is Afie, is the first self-produced album from the Ontario-based musician. With this record he pursued a far more complex sound than on prior releases and is responsible for the majority of the instrumentation. The album follows 2011's Barchords, which was praised for being a reserved yet melodically rewarding exploration of relationships and heartache by The New Yorker. SPIN recently premiered the first pre-release track from the album, All The Time, saying Bahamas distills his brand of breezy soul…with summer-ready falsetto harmonies that float over a distorted riff, before ending with a quick solo, a move that reminds this laidback Canuck can shred.

Après le succès de son premier album « Inspiring Love » enregistré à New York, la chanteuse Sarah Lancman revient avec un nouvel album « A Contretemps » avec des compositions originales pleine d’émotion entourée d’une équipe de prestige: avec le pianiste Giovanni Mirabassi ( 17 disques d’or, Victoire de la Musique, Django d’or,) qui a joué notamment avec Chet Baker, Steve Grossman, Eliott Zigmund, Glenn Ferris et tant d’autres, le contrebassiste Gianluca Renzi (Ari Hoenig, André Ceccarelli, Kevin Pays…), le batteur Gene Jackson ( Herbin Hancock Trio, Diane Reeves, Christian McBride , Joe Lovano…) et en invité spécial le grand chanteur et trompettiste japonais TOKU (13 albums, artiste chez Sony Jazz Japan).

French chanteuse Francoise Hardy was riding high in her popularity when this set was issued in 1975, made up of tracks from 1973 and 1974 as well. The overall feeling of Message Personnel is cinematic. There are the sweeping string arrangements of the legendary Michel Bernholc on all but one track. His direction of a basic rock band backed by a lush set of strings underlined Hardy's wispy yet compelling vocals. On the single, however, "L'Amour En Privè," Serge Gainsbourg handled production chores with musical directors J.C. Vannier and Georges Moustaki.

Pianist Alexandre Tharaud and cellist Jean-Guihen Queyras are long-established as a duo team, but this is the first time that Queyras has joined Tharaud for an Erato recording. They have chosen works that lie at the heart of the Romantic repertoire, all by Brahms: his two cello sonatas and the duo’s own transcriptions of six of the Hungarian Dances.
