The Catalyst Quartet interviews with Classically Austin - KMFA Radio


The latest release from the Catalyst String Quartet features music by Johann Sebastian Bach, and Glenn Gould on Azica Records. Bach never composed a string quartet, and Glenn Gould is known primarily as a perfomer - so this new release, The Glenn Gould Project, certainly had the KMFA staff interested from the get-go! "It all began on a car ride on tour through the rolling California hills," says the Catalyst Quartet."When we came across a recording of the Glenn Gould String Quartet, we were delighted to discover this work that was new to us at the time, not knowing that the artist who was so revered for his unabashed interpretations of Bach (and others), had also composed a monumental 40 minute soliloquy for string quartet." So how did they go from Gould's music to the pianist's most celebrated recording, The Goldberg Variations? "How could we help celebrate Gould's contribution to the string quartet repertoire and also contribute to the repertoire in a way that continues his legacy of unbound creativity?" Over the course of about a year and half,  "we arranged, edited, worked, interpreted, RE-interpreted, and RE-edited the entire Bach Goldberg Variations!" They took to the manuscript and began arranging it in a way that highlights the string quartet and its capacity for dynamic interplay, with a focus on highlighting the inherent counterpoint that is true to the nature of Bach's music. Recently KMFA's John Clare spoke with Catalyst Quartet members Violinist Karla Donehew-Perez, and Cellist Karlos Rodriguez. Hear their conversation by clicking the orange audio play button above. KMFA audiences might remember hearing the Catalyst Quartet last October at the Sphinx Virtuosi concert at Bass Hall for Texas Performing Arts. Find out where they are playing this season here.

Interview with KMFA's John Clare

Yo-Yo Ma faces a Bach marathon at the Proms / theguardian


Something weird happens in Bach's fifth suite for unaccompanied cello. The soloist, who has been bowing away for the past hour and 25 minutes on the previous four suites, tackling some of the most soulful and demanding music in the western classical canon, is suddenly confronted with a new challenge. And it's still a good 40 minutes before he or she can get a well-deserved cup of tea. "Bach decides he's going to enrich the sound of the instrument by tuning it down, taking the A string down to a G," explains cellist Yo-Yo Ma. "He's saying, ‘If I do that, I can get more overtone, I can make the chords richer, make it more polyphonic.' He's trying to make a single-line instrument give the illusion of several voices." Does that make it more difficult to play? He sighs. "Gosh, yes. It makes it more impossible." If you want to hear Yo-Yo Ma battling with impossibility, go to the Albert Hall in London in September, where the great cellist will play all six suites straight through. "It is highly unusual to do that. I think maybe I've done it three times in my life at most." So why is he doing it? "I'm turning 60 in October and it's a quirky birthday present to myself because these suites are so meaningful. They're not only companions and friends, but they've also been reference points in my life." READ THE FULL guardian ARTICLE

Steven Hancoff interview with KMBH Radio


Inspired by the Spanish cellist Pablo Casals and his advocacy of Bach's six Cello Suites, guitarist Steven Hancoff began by transcribing for guitar each of the Suites – a first for acoustic guitar. His passion for the music and what it means led him to present his recordings of the transcriptions in a unique context, as a multimedia e-book – the first of its kind, or as Hancoff describes it, "the Gutenberg Revolution 2.0." Bach, Casals and the Six Suites for 'Cello Solo is designed to be an adventure for anyone fascinated by the enduring power of music, art and why they matter. "Early on, it dawned on me that familiarizing myself with the life of this man might deepen my understanding of who he was," Hancoff writes of Bach, "and that understanding would serve me to better organize the music. So, I began to read biographies. And the more I read, the more I wrote. This man, ‘the miracle of Bach,' as Pablo Casals once put it, led a life of unfathomable creativity and giftedness on the one hand and neglect and immense tragedy on the other."  Listen to the attached interview

Daniel Hope@Bristol Proms - Tchaikovsky vs. Brahms / Watch the Classicfm video


He's a Bristol Proms veteran, and for his third appearance at the festival violinist Daniel Hope was keen to explore one of the biggest beefs in classical music history - that between Tchaikovsky and Brahms, neither of whom were shy of the odd slanging match. With the help of his own hand-picked ensemble and an on-stage actor, Hope's third Bristol Proms show is a full-on ding-dong - works by each of the composers are played out of sequence and pitted directly against one another... but who comes off best? Hope spoke to Classic FM's Jane Jones before he took to the Bristol Old Vic stage. WATCH THE Classicfm VIDEO

Mahler Chamber Orchestra/Andsnes music-making of exceptional quality / theguardian


Though published later than his official First Piano Concerto, Beethoven's Second Piano Concerto was written before it, while his Fifth – the so-called Emperor Concerto – turned out to be his last. In this Prom, which concluded their world tour of all of Beethoven's major works for piano and orchestra, the Norwegian pianist/director Leif Ove Andsnes and the Mahler Chamber Orchestra thus combined the canonical beginning of Beethoven's creativity in the genre with its end. The quality of music-making was exceptionally high. Over the four years during which they have been engaged upon this project, orchestral players and soloist have clearly honed not only their individual performances but also their acutely sensitive responses towards each other's momentary needs. Balance and ensemble were uniformly excellent; solo passages dovetailed flawlessly into accompaniments. Andsnes's pianism was distinguished. His finger-work was impeccable, while equally authoritative was his ability to maintain the music's tonal quality and shape while effortlessly steering his way around some technically awkward corners in the B-flat concerto, as well as the far more virtuosic writing encountered in the Emperor.  READ THE FULL guardian ARTICLE READ The Telegraph ARTICLE READ THE MusicOMH ARTICLE

Maria Schneider, nature poet of jazz / The Boston Globe


Listening to Frank Kimbrough's piano solo midway through the Maria Schneider Orchestra's latest album, you'd be excused for picturing wind blowing through a field of wheat. For writers of instrumental music, subject matter is as likely as not personal, internal, or abstract; it's "about" music as much as anything. Think Bach's "The Art of the Fugue" or Charles Mingus's "Folk Forms, No. 1." But multiple Grammy winner Schneider's music unabashedly takes in and pays tribute to the physical world. So Kimbrough is evoking a real place in the wavelike figures of "The Thompson Fields" - specifically the unspoiled stretch of the Great Plains near Schneider's hometown of Windom, Minn. You can expect to hear a good chunk of "The Thompson Fields" when the Maria Schneider Orchestra takes the stage Saturday at the Newport Jazz Festival. Schneider - jazz's nature poet - is particularly well-suited to the Fort Adams mainstage, with its dramatic sweeping vista of Newport Harbor and Narragansett Bay. Schneider is a passionate bird-watcher and environmentalist. The myriad harmonic hues and undulating rhythms of her extended pieces can evoke bird life, the experience of hang gliding off a Brazilian cliff, or those fields back in Minnesota.  READ THE FULL Boston Globe ARTICLE

Top 10 Albums for July

Charlie Haden - Gonzalo Rubalcaba :

Tokyo Adagio

A posthumous release, but one that Charlie Haden ardently desired prior to his passing in July 2014. Tokyo Adagio marks the ultimate step in the American bassist's collaborations with Gonzalo Rubalcaba, the pianist of genius he met in Cuba in 1986, and with whom Charlie immediately found an entente bordering on telepathy. Several recordings - the famous Montreal Tapes of 1998, the studio albums Nocturne (2001) and Land of the Sun (2004) - are evidence of the huge complicity binding these two musicians, but no recording had yet given new life to the pure exchange they gave to the audience at the Blue Note Tokyo on consecutive evenings in spring 2005. Ten years later, impulse! is happy to publish this unique eye-witness account with a title to Charlie's taste (he referred to himself as "an adagio guy.") Through this tribute to the stateliness of his inimitable grace, the spirit of Charlie Haden is still with us. 71 Total SYND: PRI/Jazz After Hours, NPR/TTBOTK Direct: SiriusXM Markets include: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Baltimore, Denver, Detroit, St. Louis, Austin, New Orleans, Albuquerque, San Antonio, Honolulu, Madison WI, Raleigh NC, Canada Online: Taintradio, The Eclectic Chair

Keith Jarrett :

Barber/Bartok/Jarrett

Keith Jarrett plays Samuel Barber's Piano Concerto op. 38 and Béla Bartók's Piano Concerto no. 3. These recordings, made in 1984 and 1985 in Saarbrücken and Tokyo, make a significant addition to the pianist's discography as an interpreter of notated music. Jarrett's recordings of classical repertoire for ECM have focused primarily on Bach and Mozart, though there are also exemplary albums of Handel's keyboard music, and Shostakovich's Bach-inspired Preludes and Fugues as well as a crucially important contribution to Arvo Pärt's Tabula Rasa. Playing Fratres alongside Gidon Kremer, Jarrett's participation would help to bring a then little-known Estonian composer to world attention.  It was a richly creative period. Jarrett had just launched the jazz group with Gary Peacock and Jack DeJohnette that would become known as the Standards Trio and in parallel was giving classical recitals, and continuing with his solo piano improvisations.  Splitting his time between jazz standards, the vast literature of classical music and free playing, Jarrett was juggling three different musical disciplines.  18 NEW  33 TOTAL SYND: Classical 24, CBC Direct: SiriusXM, Music Choice, MOOD Markets include: New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston, Philadelphia, Atlanta, Cleveland, Seattle, St. Louis, Minneapolis, Houston, Portland, Pittsburgh, Austin, Detroit, Buffalo, Honolulu, Canada Online: Taintradio
Snarky Puppy | Metropole Orkest :

Sylva

When Snarky Puppy won a Grammy in January of 2014, the question I was asked most was, "Was this on your bucket list of things to do before you die'" And my answer to each of them was, actually, no. I have only one thing on my list. The only thing I want to do before I die is make an album with an orchestra. It had been a topic of discussion for three months at that time. During the October 2013 recording sessions for "We Like It Here" in Utrecht, our good friend Friederike Darius had invited two of the Metropole Orkest's managers to join us as guests. Within ten minutes of the performance's end, we had already crafted a plan to make a record together. Sometimes life is that easy.

"He's a self-described ‘classicist' who, in his new work, draws a through line between the first great songbook of Porter, Kern, etc., and his own generation's massive impact on the art of the song.

David Sanborn :

Time and the River

After saxophonist David Sanborn recorded the well-received Quartette Humaine acoustic jazz album with pianist Bob James as a one-off for OKeh Records in 2013, the label continued the conversation with the renowned six-time Grammy winning alto sax star who released eight gold albums and one platinum. That exchange led to Sanborn to link up with his old collaborative friend, electric bassist Marcus Miller, to serve as producer in creating the superb jazz-meets-R&B recording Time and the River. "I felt like I was in good hands," says Sanborn.
