- While residing in Brussels these two artists began to collect works of art for what is now known as the Mesdag Museum.

As in some of her other works, too, Zwilich throws in some clear jazz references—here, at least, in the earlier jazz-classical style of Gershwin, only a bit more modal. She also provides excellent contrasts between the cellist’s lines and the orchestra. For the most part they are on the same page , but there are some wonderful moments in which they play opposing figures that complement one another. Near the end of the first movement, Bailey plays a note that is slightly “warped” in sound which gives the music an unusual feel.

James W. Iman is a Pittsburgh-area pianist and teacher who specializes in music written since 1945, although he also includes some modern works written in the 1910s, ‘20s and ‘30s. This, the first of three CDs he is contracted to produce for the Divine Art-Métier label group, is a reissue of his first album, released by ZeD Classics in 2017 . Although more popular than his Fifth or Seventh Symphonies, Mahler’s Ninth isn’t really one of most people’s top picks. It is more restless and moody than almost any of the other symphonies, and only seems to respond well to those conductors who understand this. My favorite recordings are the ones by Sir Georg Solti , Bruno Walter and Klaus Tennstedt , although Sir John Barbirolli came very close to greatness in his 1960s recording with the Berlin Philharmonic.
Matthew just responded to this subtle change of sound physics of the new mouthpiece and further advanced our already highly ever-evolving symbiotic musical relationship. The Flute Concerto No. 1, evidently written to comply with the Soviets’ demand for accessible music, is an unusually chipper piece for him at this stage of his life , but chipper it is. Coming on the CD between the Seventh and Third symphonies, it acts as a sort of upbeat emotional buffer. Gražinytė-Tyla’s performance, along with flautist Marie-Christine Zupancic, is appropriately upbeat. There is little or no angst here, but how can you make a flute express sadness and despair? The opening of the last movement is wholly unique, sounding like a phone ringing that is not answered before going into soft, moving figures in the violins.
Through its wind instruments, it invites one to visit other cultures and heritages. ‘Play a Part’ from Armenian producer Teom drags us quickly until we find ourselves contemplating a surreal sunset in the desert.

A visionary musician schooled in jazz and world music traditions, Gregory draws inspiration from avant-garde composers of the 20th and 21st centuries. He learned the art of metal fabrication in order to create instruments that could give expression to his unique musical voice. Gregory composes music for quintet, orchestra and film, creates musical instruments from industrial scrap, and choreographs movement. Now, this is scarcely the deepest of Weinberg’s symphonies—the second movement is light and airy, in her hands as well as in Svedlund’s—yet even here she just gets something extra out of the music. Both she and Svedlund present a boisterous profile for this movement, but only she manages to elicit so much inner detail.
