Adam Harasiewicz’ legendäre Chopin-Aufnahmen. Er hat sein Musikerleben ganz seinem genialen Landsmann geweiht, und ohne Zweifel gehört der Pole Adam Harasiewicz zu den größten Chopin-Interpreten nach dem 2. Weltkrieg. Seit er 1955 gegen keinen Geringeren als Vladimir Ashkenazy in Warschau den prestigeträchtigen Internationalen Chopin-Wettbewerb gewinnen konnte, steht sein Name in einer Reihe mit Pianisten wie Vladimir Horowitz, Arthur Rubinstein und Claudio Arrau.

“You have to enter into sound, penetrate it in its triple essence: physical, psychic and creative”, words by Giacinto Scelsi, one of the most influential and enigmatic avant‐garde composers of 20‐th century Italy. Born into a wealthy family he went to Vienna for his education, studied with Arnold Schoenberg and returned to Italy where he organized concerts introducing contemporary composers like Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Hindemith and Stravinsky. Later he was influenced by eastern spiritualism which radically changed his conception of music, in which he had an important role for improvisation for both composer and performer.

What is a virtuoso? A musician with the secret to play things faster than anyone else for absolutely no reason. Of course it is a little more complex than that. What drives a true virtuoso is partly the thrill of speed for one thing, but also having the ability to pull the audience in and make them hang onto your every note, be it fast or slow.

The sonatas and partitas for solo violin (BWV 1001–1006) are a set of six works composed by Johann Sebastian Bach. They are sometimes referred to in English as the sonatas and partias for solo violin in accordance with Bach's headings in the autograph manuscript: "Partia" (plural "Partien") was commonly used in German-speaking regions during Bach's time, whereas the Italian "partita" was introduced to this set in the 1879 Bach Gesellschaft edition, having become standard by that time. The set consists of three sonatas da chiesa in four movements and three partitas (or partias) in dance-form movements.
The set was completed by 1720, but was only published in 1802 by Nikolaus Simrock in Bonn. Even after publication, it was largely ignored until the celebrated violinist Joseph Joachim started performing these works. Today, Bach's Sonatas and Partitas are an essential part of the violin repertoire, and they are frequently performed and recorded.

Wadada Leo Smith comes to the music of Thelonious Monk from a childhood admiration of the artist. As a pre-teen he was already playing trumpet and composing and instinctively knew that Monk's understanding of music and sound would influence his own creativity. Smith believes that the quintessence of Monk can best be found in his solo work. The same can be said for Smith who has produced two previous solo collections including Creative Music—1 (1972) and Solo Music: Ahkreanvention (1979), both on the Kabell label.

Label: Profil

Titled Kontraste - Friedemann Wuttke - Solo Works this wonderfully played album. German soloist Friedemann Wuttke studied at the Musikhochschule Stuttgart and at the same time held a lectureship at Hochschule Ludwigsburg. Wuttke has issued a number of albums ranging from classic Spanish and South American music to collaborations with friends on the John Dowland album Shadows. On this release to increase the range of works as inferred in the title Kontraste ideally I would have liked the inclusion of some late twentieth-century music from say Hans Werner Henze maybe Oberon from his Royal Winter Music. Wuttke strikes me as a serious and perceptive performer and one feels his deep concentration in these interpretations.

"The Solo Album" is a title to be taken quite literally when it comes to this 1985 release from the legendary sax master Sonny Rollins. The entire album is nearly an hours worth of unaccompanied solo tenor saxophone recorded live at New York's Mueseum of Modern Art. While Sonny has recorded unaccompanied sax solos before, this is the first time he had done it on an entire album and I must say, the end result is stunning!! Throughout the album, we hear Sonny continually building up spontaneous inventions without ever running out of ideas.
