After two productions with chamber music, Stefan Tarara now presents his debut album as a soloist on Ars Produktion. The young Heidelberg violinist interprets Eugène Ysaÿe's Six Sonatas Op.27 for violin solo on a Stradivari from 1721. Each of these pieces is dedicated to a certain famous violinist, e.g. George Enescu, Fritz Kreisler or Joseph Szigeti, and is composed in a corresponding style. Stefan Tarara was born into a musical family in Heidelberg, Germany in 1986 and made his stage debut at the age of four.

Some say that you have to reach a great maturity before daring to attack it. For her first solo album, Anna Göckel assumes with great temperament her choice to record one of the founding texts of the violin repertoire: Sonatas and Partitas by Johann Sebastian Bach.

Hard Rock | Country: Sweden | Label: Crawling Solo

Born and raised in the deep woods in Småland Sweden. Got the music interest from my grandfather. He had his own big band when he was young. Crawling Solo is a solo project. I took that name because that is what i do. Music on my own and when it suits me. The band i played in before took a break so i decided to do something on my own instead. A decision i don't regret. I think i play some kind of hard rock/metal but my influences comes from other kinds of music to. I love film music for example and i think that my film music interest shows in some of my songs.

Leading early music expert Winsome Evans presents the final chapter in her ground-breaking project to transcribe and record Bach’s solo instrumental works for the harpsichord, with the Six Cello Suites and Partita for Solo Flute. Evans’ project, some 30 years in the making, is based on evidence that Bach himself played his solo instrumental works on the keyboard – including the statement of a former student that Bach often played the solo violin and cello works ‘on the clavier, adding as much in the nature of harmony as he found necessary’. The harmonies added by Evans to the solo works are inspired by methods from Bach’s own time.

This gargantuan package – a ten-LP set now compressed into a chunky six-CD box – once was derided as the ultimate ego trip, probably by many who didn't take the time to hear it all. You have to go back to Art Tatum's solo records for Norman Granz in the '50s to find another large single outpouring of solo jazz piano like this, all of it improvised on the wing before five Japanese audiences in Kyoto, Osaka, Nagoya, Tokyo, and Sapporo. Yet the miracle is how consistently good much of this giant box is.
