The conventional view of Niccolò Paganini's 24 Caprices puts them among the encores and etudes violinists use to hone their skills and show off their prowess. But Julia Fischer regards them primarily as expressive works that are as rich in lyricism and emotional color as they are in advanced techniques, and her 2010 Decca album shows her considered approach to the music. There's no doubt about Fischer's impressive abilities, which are apparent from hearing the first Caprice, and all the trickiest double- and triple-stops, bowing styles, and various means of articulation that are included in this fantastic work reveal her phenomenal gifts. But as amazing as Fischer's performance is for sheer technique, it is highly pleasurable because of her polished musicality and firm control of every nuance that is either overt or suggested in the music. Highly recommended. (AMG)

The emphasis for this album is very much on youth and prodigious talent: at 25, Julia Lezhneva is ideally suited to the soprano arias of the young Handel, who arrived in Italy from Germany as a 21 year old at the beginning of the 18th century. She has the perfect partners in Il Giardino Armonico and Giovanni Antonini whose recordings of music from the Italian baroque are celebrated for their “fizzing virtuosity” and “exquisite cushion of sound” (The Independent). For some tracks the orchestra is led by Dmitry Sinkovsky, the extraordinary Russian violinist and one of today’s most versatile Baroque musicians.

Pianist Julia Hülsmann and singer Theo Bleckmann, in a first – and long-awaited – collaborative recording, celebrate the “unsung Weill” alongside the master’s best-loved works including “Mack The Knife”, “Speak Low” and “September Song”, adding also Julia’s settings of Walt Whitman, with whom Kurt Weill felt an affinity. The project came together at the instigation of the Kurt Weill Festival in Dessau in 2013 and since then has gained new life on the road and been fine-tuned in this studio recording made in Oslo in June 2014 with Manfred Eicher as producer. It marks a musical advance for the Hülsmann group at a number of levels, and these recastings of Weill open up new imaginative possibilities for the players. English trumpeter and flugelhornist Tom Arthurs, who made his debut with Hülsmann on In Full View is fully integrated on A Clear Midnight. Often his trumpet doubles or underpins Bleckmann’s singing, giving a new colour to the vocals.

Australian brother and sister folk/blues team Angus and Julia Stone had last recorded together four years before this 2014 self-titled album was conceived. Even though their last album was a number one hit in Australia, the siblings went their separate ways after its release until they were enticed to reunite at the request of American producer Rick Rubin. The album was recorded over a six month period at Rubin's studio in Malibu, California. Not only did they agree to work together again, they wrote songs together for the first time in their careers.

After two acclaimed trio albums pianist Julia Hulsmann proposes a different project for her third ECM release In Full View, motivated initially by a performance by Berlin-based, English trumpet player Tom Arthurs. After first rehearsals had established musical compatibility, Hulsmann called upon the services of her trusted rhythm section of Marc Muellbauer (double bass) and Heinrich Kobberling, but a vocalist was no longer needed. Thus the Julia Hulmann Trio became the Julia Hulsmann Quartet – with a prominent role for Tom Arthurs as strong new frontline voice that not only inspires Julia Hulsmann as player and arranger, but also had a stimulating effect on the composing activities within the quartet, with all members bringing compositions to the table. The program is rounded off by the additions of “The Water” from Canadian singer-songwriter Feist, “Richtung Osten,” penned by Heinrich Kobberling’s wife Fumi Udo, and Manuel de Falla’s “Nana” from the “Siete Canciones Populares Espanolas” cycle of folk song arrangements.

Beggar Julia's Timetrip is based on a story of a man who travels through time in a spaceship and observes the great composers at work. Thus, the story is of course a perfect setting for introducing some rock/jazz versions of Albinoni's Adagio, Bach's Italian Concerto and Tchaikovsky's piano concerto garnished with some Beethoven.
