Fearsomely talented Swedish clarinetist Martin Fröst continues his conquest of the major concerto repertoire for his instrument with this recording of Carl Nielsen's 1928 Clarinet Concerto, paired with a new concerto by Finland's Kalevi Aho. The Nielsen concerto is a dense work in which the clarinet and the orchestra spend a lot of time going their separate ways, with the path of the clarinet being very twisted indeed.
One genius hides another. Behind Mozart, Haydn and Beethoven were many talented composers who contributed to the development of the classical style, but who are still little known. Generation Mozart brings back into the limelight these forgotten masters. They dedicate their first volume to Joseph Martin Kraus. Mozart's exact contemporary, he was the first architect of the Swedish musical school, which earned him the nickname"Swedish Mozart". Génération Mozart and it's conductor Pejman Memarzadeh join forces with soprano Marie Perbost to put him in his rightful place, through an album mixing opera, arias and orchestral pieces.
An electrifying stratosphere of vibrant realms and enchanting tonalities evolves with every breath of Martin Nonstatic’s hand-crafted synthscapes. Gently progressing into a dubby waterfall of mind-massaging oscillations, Ligand is an ambient downpour of dramatic euphoria. Dark, yet soulful minimalism is engraved within the atmospheric frequencies that paint its melancholy walls, a downtempo outcry of distant, mechanical pads and dystopian melodies crawling against an auditory horizon. The experience is an emotional voyage ; it takes us on a captivating journey into a faraway dimension without ever having to leave earth. It feels like a second home, and we invite you through its welcoming doors to explore a brand new world.
