Masterclass Series: Classical Trumpet
Masterclass Series: Classical
"David Hickman is an astounding musician. His articulation and phrasing are impeccable. More importantly, the wide affective range he coaxes from his instrument is continuously revelatory." -- Fanfare "The most difficult task facing any trumpeter is not the production of bright, assertive fanfare, but rather the task of coaxing agile, cantabile lines from the most stentorian of instruments. David Hickman proved himself expert in both capacities." -- New York Times Trumpet MasterClass instruction from one of the world's pre-eminent trumpet virtuosos and educators!

Both Directions at Once: The Lost Album (Deluxe 2 CD)
Both Directions at Once: The Lost Album (Deluxe
Unknown until 2004 and unheard until now, these recordings by the John Coltrane Quartet are, as Sonny Rollins says in the liner notes, like finding a new room in the Great Pyramid. Featuring the Classic Quartet – John Coltrane, McCoy Tyner, Jimmy Garrison and Elvin Jones – and recorded at the end of a two-week run at Birdland, the music on this album represents one of the most influential groups in music history both performing in a musical style it had perfected and reaching in new, exploratory directions that were to affect the trajectory of jazz from that point forward. The standard version (available in CD and LP formats) incorporates 7 tracks, 2 of which are two completely unheard, brand new original compositions as well as Coltrane classics like Impressions and Vilia. The deluxe version (also available in CD and LP formats) incorporates 7 alternate takes of some of the tracks from the standard – a must have for any Coltrane fan.

The Final Tour: The Bootleg Series, Vol. 6
The Final Tour: The Bootleg Series, Vol.
The latest entry in the award-winning Miles Davis Bootleg Series focuses on the final chapter in the landmark collaboration between Davis and saxophonist John Coltrane: their last live performances together, in Europe in the spring of 1960. Miles and Coltrane first collaborated in 1955, when Davis recruited the tenor saxophonist alongside pianist Red Garland, bassist Paul Chambers and drummer Philly Joe Jones. This "first great quintet" made their Columbia Records debut in 1957. Those early recordings showcased the stunning contrasts between Miles' spacious, melodic lines and Trane's cascading high-energy solos, famously described by the critic Ira Gilter in 1958 as "sheets of sound."While the quintet disbanded shortly after the release of 'Round About Midnight, Coltrane was back in Miles' ensemble in early 1958. A year late, the Miles Davis Sextet (Davis, Coltrane, Chambers, saxophonist Julian "Cannonball" Adderley, pianists Bill Evans or Wynton Kelly, and drummer Jimmy Cobb) recorded the historic Kind Of Blue, the best-selling jazz album of all time. And for this final tour the rhythm section of Kelly, Chambers and Cobb backed Miles and Trane. These historic performances marked Miles and Trane's last outing together and showcased both musicians' incredible influence on the chan...

HalloweeN Returns (Music Inspired by the Film)
Claudio Abbado (1933 2014) fell under the spell of Mahler s music during his years as a student in Vienna. His first memories of Mahler, conducted by Bruno Walter, Dimitri Mitropoulos and Leonard Bernstein, left a deep impression: Their interpretations were great; each of them had such a strong personality. In 1963, Abbado travelled to New York as winner of the Mitropoulos Conducting Competition to work as Bernstein s assistant at the New York Philharmonic. In 2010 he recalled a Mahler rehearsal: I remember very well during the rehearsal of Mahler s Second Symphony that Bernstein went to sit in the hall and asked me to get on the podium. He wanted to hear the very complex part, in the finale, where the principal ideas are played by the small orchestra offstage. Bernstein was surprised and very happy that I was aware of how difficult this passage was.The inaugural concerts of Abbado s hand-picked Lucerne Festival Orchestra took place in August 2003 and included Mahler s Second Symphony, which again was recorded live. Over the next decade, Mahler was at the heart of Abbado s Lucerne programmes, and in August 2011 he conducted the Adagio from the Tenth (it would be his last Lucerne Mahler). Abbado s final Mahler concerts were all in Italy: in December 2011, the Orchestra Mozart (whi...

Holst: The Planets/R.Strauss: Also Sprach Zarathustra [CD/Blu-Ray Audio Combo]
Holst: The Planets/R.Strauss: Also Sprach Zarathustra [CD/Blu-Ray Audio
Continuing our rediscovery of DG’s 1970s quadrophonic ambitions before anyone had even HEARD of surround sound, comes William Steinberg’s famous readings of Strauss’ “Also sprach Zarathustra” and Holst’s “The Planets”, remastered at 24-bit/192kHz from the original 4-track tapes and presented on Blu-ray Audio in 4.0 Surround + CD (new stereo remastering). The booklet includes notes on the original concept and remasters – have a read of this great story. Developed in the 1970s, Quadraphonic audio was the earliest consumer product recorded and presented in surround sound. Deutsche Grammophon was one of a few labels who embraced this new technology. Just as with today’s 5.1 surround sound standard, the goal of the quadraphonic format was to expand the sound using two additional speakers positioned behind the listener. A new 4-channel mixing console design was used for making recordings and special omnidirectional microphones captured the ambient sound on additional channels. Indeed, following the original issue of Steinberg’s and the BSO’s “The Planets”, Stereo Review was to comment that it “heralded a new era in recorded sound.”Though quadrophonic releases were a commercial failure at the time they were issued – due to the high production costs and ...
