"This retrospective compilation represents 30 wonderful years of my life.... I hope as you listen that you will, in some measure, hear the joy I've had making each of these recordings." Approached to record for ECM at the very beginning of its history; Jan Garbarek has since appeared on more than 50 albums for the label, and along the way has changed perceptions of improvisation, living up to George Russell's early estimation of him as "the most uniquely talented jazz musician Europe has produced since Django Reinhardt." Garbarek's double album traces the growth of his own groups, his collaborations with a wide range of musicians - from Keith Jarrett to the Hilliard Ensemble - and his investigations of Nordic and other folk traditions.

Image Rites (2 CD)
Jan Garbarek's powerful new double-album is a magnum opus, and well-titled. "Rites" suggests initiations, rituals, the archaic, the magical, but also "rites of passage", and the Norwegian saxophonist reflects, in his choice of material, upon pivotal episodes and influences in his own life and those of his associates. Pieces include a tribute to Don Cherry and reworkings of the Garbarek classics "It's OK to listen to the gray voice" and "So mild the wind, so meek the water". There are abundant references to scattered musics of the world, from Norway to India, as well as a setting - for voices and saxophone - of a Native American poem, and the surprise inclusion of Jansug Kakhidze's "The moon over Mtatsminda", sung by its composer with the Tbilisi Symphony Orchestra. In total, this is the most comprehensive recording Jan Garbarek has made to date, and his subtle saxophone artistry has never been more persuasive.

Image Mnemosyne
Five years after the recording of "Officium", the Hilliard Ensemble and Jan Garbarek returned to the monastery of St Gerold to renew, in the words of singer John Potter, their "encounter with the unknown." The resultant, very beautiful, double-album, "Mnemosyne", is wider in scope than its predecessor, and the improvised component of the music is expanded. Repertoire now spans 22 centuries, from the "Delphic Paean" of Athenaeus to the "Estonian Lullaby" of Veljo Tormis, via folk song fragments from North and South America and Spain, freely developed, as well as pieces by Tallis, Dufay, Brumel, Hildegard von Bingen, Jan Garbarek, a Russian psalm, a Scottish ballad of the 16th century, and much more. "We did it for each other in the absence of an audience, and these are complete one-off performances which will never sound the same again."

This double album, made with Mansurian's participation, includes premiere recordings of works of the last decade, in which Kashkashian is variously joined by Christoph Poppen and the Munich Chamber Orchestra, Jan Garbarek, and the Hilliard Ensemble, while Leonidas Kavakos is the soloist in the 1981 Concert for Violin and Orchestra. An extraordinary cast, doing justice to extraordinary music. "Monodia" is certain to be a much-discussed recording.

4 AV 5 MÖJLIGA I BETYG I DAGENS NYHETER

"Saxofonisten Jan Garbareks lyriska tonspråk har ackompanjerats på drastiskt olika vis genom åren. Ena ytterligheten måste vara hans samarbete med sångarna i Hilliardensemblen; den andra kan mycket väl vara just den här upplagan av Jan Garbarek Group. "Dresden" är en liveinspelning från en period då Eberhard Weber nyligen hade ersatts av brasilianen Yuri Daniel på elbas. Den nödvändiga, här pågående justeringen av gruppens dynamik och sound ger musiken en särskild nerv, inte minst i mer improviserade avsnitt. Som tidigare sker också mycket i mötet mellan Garbarek och den drivne trumslagaren Manu Katché. Rainer Brüninghaus på piano och keyboards gör gruppen komplett och har stor känsla för musikens olika stämningar. Det är ett dubbelalbum om sju respektive nio låtar. Om än bara en del av Garbareks stora repertoar, så visar materialet på en kreativ bredd, från originalkompositioner hämtade från flera tidigare skivor, till intressanta covers som "Milagre dos peixes", skiven av Milton Nascimento men kanske mer känd som en av låtarna på Wayne Shorters "Native dancer"."
(Dagens Nyheter)

Jan Garbarek: soprano and tenor saxophones, silje flute; Rainer Brüninghaus: piano, keyboards; Yuri Daniel: bass; Manu Katché: drums

This two-CD set is the first-ever live album to be issued under Jan Garbarek's name. "Dresden", a fiery and powerful performance and a fine document of the Norwegian saxophonist's exceptional improvising capacities, captures his group in a period when it was, of necessity, reformulating its approach. Earlier in the year bassist Yuri Daniel had been drafted into the band to help Garbarek fulfil commitments when Eberhard Weber, a unique component of the Garbarek ensemble's core sound for three decades, had been sidelined by illness. The new group tackles its repertoire head-on; with the interaction between Garbarek and drummer Manu Katché at the centre of the music. Daniel, a Brazilian bassist living in Portugal whose previous associations have ranged from Maria João's group to the Lisbon Underground Music Ensemble, helps to anchor the pulses and rhythm patterns. Rainer Brüninghaus, a Garbarek Group member since 1988, maintains his long-established role as colourist-in-action. While both bassist and keyboardist claim their own solo space, more often they help to shape a climate in which Garbarek's hymnic, declamatory and intensely melodic solos can find full expression, drawing energy also from Katché's hard-driving drums. As The Guardian wrote of the group on this leg of the 2007 tour, "The contrast between an intense jamming sound and the songlike simplicity of the tunes is always Garbarek's magic mix, but this version of the band has an exhilarating intensity." The Norwegian-German-Brazilian-French band powers through material old and new, and sketches a world of musical interconnections - beginning with an ecstatic account of "Paper Nut", written by Indian violinist Lakshminarayana Shankar for the ECM "Song for Everyone" album back in 1984. "Milagre Dos Peixes" (Miracle of the Fishes), by Milton Nascimento, was a revelation for many musicians when Wayne Shorter introduced it on his "Native Dancer" recording: the Garbarek group lift it to another level. "Rondo Amoroso", is Garbarek's arrangement of a composition by Harald Sæverud (1897-1992). Perhaps the most prolific Norwegian composer after Grieg, Sæverud was strongly influenced by the essence of folksong - the parallel with Jan's work is clear enough.

"Den här förnämliga trion återuppstod tillfälligt efter ett par skivor i 70-talets slut för bland annat denna strålande livespelning i Amerika Haus i München 1981. Det är en av flera ECM-utgåvor på senare tid med material som inte längre går att uppbringa, eller, som här, inte tidigare givits ut. Brasilianske gitarristen och pianisten Egberto Gismonti står för merparten, sex kompositioner, men basisten Charlie Hadens La Pasionara och norske saxofonisten Jan Garbareks Spor gör starkast intryck. Det är ett triospel av yppersta slag, varmt lyriskt och melodiskt, av tre passionerade världsmusiker i ett sällsynt tätt och skimrande samspel."

Recorded live at Munich's Amerika Haus in 1981, a double album of previously unreleased performances by an exceptional trio comprised of strongly contrasting musical personalities: Norwegian saxophonist Jan Garbarek, Brazilian guitarist-pianist Egberto Gismonti and US bassist Charlie Haden.

From the early 1970s through the 1980s, ECM frequently presented concerts in the recital hall of the Amerika Haus. It was a good space for acoustic music especially, and many tapes were made to document the events there: only a few have been released thus far, an artistic treasure trove awaiting further investigation. Albums drawn from this source have included, for instance, Ralph Towner's "Solo Concert" (1979), and the Art Ensemble of Chicago's "Urban Bushmen" (1980). Egberto Gismonti recorded a solo set for his album "Sanfona" there in April 1981, a month that also saw two shows by the trio known as "Magico". Engineer Martin Wieland recorded the live performances under the direction of Manfred Eicher who, three decades later, produced the present album in Oslo, mixing it with Jan Erik Kongshaug.

"Carta de Amor" means "love letter" and Egberto Gismonti says, "think of it as a message in a bottle that has taken this long to reach the shore." In the interim the musical message has lost none of its pertinence or potency. This recording finds the protagonists two years along the road from the albums "Magico" and "Folk Songs", opening up the repertoire to admit extended improvising, changed by their experiences as a touring band, bringing in new pieces but still maintaining the taut balance of energies that made their first studio dates so arresting. The concentrated cry of Garbarek's saxophones, the restless movement of Gismonti's guitars and his focused, lyrical piano, and the dark tones of Haden's bass, anchoring the music... The three musicians had a unique rapport. Manfred Eicher: "Listen to what they can create in a chamber music format, as a trio, a great instance of the art of listening, of interaction, and suspense. Two soulful notes from Jan - or Egberto or Charlie - can open up a whole new soundscape, to be sculpted and detailed by each of the musicians."

Material heard here includes five compositions from Gismonti's pen: "Cego Aderaldo", "Don Quixote", "Branquinho", "Palhaço" and the title track, heard in two versions which open and close this enthralling double album. Garbarek brings in his Norwegian folk song arrangements plus a very freewheeling version "Spor", incorporating collective improvisation. Haden contributes "La Pasionara", his dedication to Spanish activist Dolores Ibárruri, a piece from the repertoire of the Liberation Music Orchestra (see "The Ballad of the Fallen"), rarely heard in small group interpretations. Magico's 16-minute account of it does not lack for intensity. Haden's other piece, "All That Is Beautiful", receives its recorded debut here.

"Keith Jarretts "europeiska kvartett", med saxofonisten Jan Garbarek, basisten Palle Danielsson och slagverkaren Jon Christensen, var varken särskilt långlivad (några år på 70-talet) eller produktiv (fyra album). Ändå har den en framskjuten plats i jazzhistorien. Sleeper är en outgiven liveinspelning från Japan, april 1979, och kommer från samma tid som de två andra livealbumen i kvartettens diskografi. Inget nytt under solen alltså, men det är svårt att klaga då musiken är så knäckande bra. Samtliga spelar på toppen av sin förmåga, utan att någonsin förfalla till uppvisningskonster."
(Svenska Dagbladet)

"På de senaste 40 åren har knappast något europeiskt jazzalbum fängslat och inspirerat så många musiker och lyssnare som den här kvartettens. Endast fyra skivor kom på 1970- och 80-talet, så denna dubbel är direkt en dyrgrip. "Sleeper" spelades in -79 i Tokyo, under samma turné som de två äldre livealbumen. Fyra låtar är desamma som på "Nude Ants" och även om intensiteten ligger lite högre där, så står sig "Sleeper" väl och det är spännande och givande att jämföra. Detta var inte gänget som upprepade sig så gärna. Jazz med extra allt - fantastiska melodier, besjälat samspel, en rytmisk vitalitet som fick musiken att dansa och en alldeles egen gruppklang. "Innocence" görs lika öm och kärleksfull som "Personal Mountains" är ostoppbart pulserande."
(Sydsvenskan)

ECM is particularly pleased to present this two-disc set by one of the most outstanding groups of its era, the group often referred to as 'Belonging' or Keith Jarrett's 'European Quartet', heard here in a previously unreleased concert recording from 1979. After more than three decades in the archive, this "sleeper" now awakes, sounding thoroughly alive and of the moment.

"Sleeper" is a significant addition to the group's small discography, until now comprised of the albums "Belonging" (1974), "My Song" (recorded 1977, released 1978), "Nude Ants" (recorded 1979), and "Personal Mountains" (1979, released 1989). The pieces performed by the quartet on April 16, 1979, at Tokyo's Nakano Sun Plaza were Jarrett compositions - "Personal Mountains", "Innocence", "So Tender", "Oasis", "Chant of the Soil", "Prism" and "New Dance" - all written for this ensemble (in later years, "Prism" and "So Tender" would be reinterpreted by the "Standards" trio), all delivered with enormous verve. This was a group that could play very freely, and joyously, inside the melodic and rhythmic structures set up or implied by Keith Jarrett's writing, with an extraordinary and unforced sense of flow. As Jarrett said at the time: "I myself, as a so-called leader, wish very, very often to blend with the other three musicians and that situation [the Belonging band] allows that, because no one is fighting with anyone else. Everyone is just trying to make the thing transparent and clear and feeling good."

The "Dansere" box brings together all of Jan Garbarek's ECM collaborations with pianist Bobo Stenson and marks a welcome return to the catalogue for three much-loved albums: - "Sart" (recorded 1971), "Witchi-Tai To" (1973) and "Dansere" (1975) - all of which have been out of print in recent years. As Michael Tucker remarks in the liner notes to the set , these are recordings which "brought freshly intelligent and invigorating perspective to bear on questions of dynamics, group sound, interaction and swing, the relation of improvisation and abstraction to the roots of jazz, and the relevance of archetypal yet freshly inflected folk forms to contemporary music." Two ensembles are heard here, the classic Garbarek-Rypdal-Andersen-Christensen group augmented by Bobo Stenson on the exploratory "Sart", and the spirited Jan Garbarek-Bobo Stenson Quartet, one of the most exciting groups of the era, on "Witchi-Tai-To" and "Dansere". The birth of the latter group was very spontaneous - the "Witchi-Tai-To"session was originally projected as a Stenson date, with just Palle Danielsson and Christensen, but after Jan Garbarek had guested with Bobo's trio at the 1973 Jazz Jamboree in Warsaw, the Swedish pianist proposed the quartet format instead. On "Witchi-To To" (disc 2 here) the repertoire largely reflects Stenson's enthusiasms, with the title composition written by Jim Pepper, Carla Bley's "A.I.R" (from "Escalator Over The Hill") as album opener, and a 20-minute account of Don Cherry's "Desireless" as the highpoint (Stenson was still playing often with Cherry in this period). Garbarek responds splendidly to the challenges of the material, a tour-de-force of post-free and modal jazz possibilities.

Music selected for the exhibition ECM - A Cultural Archaeology at Haus der Kunst, Munich

In the winter of 2012/13, the Haus der Kunst in Munich - one of Europe's most important museums for contemporary art - hosted the exhibition ECM - A Cultural Archaeology. The goal of curators Okwui Enwezor and Markus Müller was to show the range of the label's artistic endeavours in music, graphic art, and photography and its creative interchanges with film, theatre and literature. For this exhibition, Manfred Eicher and Steve Lake created this box-set accentuating directions in ECM's rich musical history.
Many themes and streams are touched upon here including the range of composition in the New Series, music for and from films, imaginative historical reconstructions, trans-cultural music, ambient minimalism, and jazz and improvisation of many hues, in a collection with a playing time of more than seven hours.

Pianist Bobo Stenson's anthology pools a most impressive line-up - including Don Cherry, Charles Lloyd, Tomasz Stanko, and Jan Garbarek - and much deeply-felt playing. In his liner notes, commenting on the broad span of music he has recorded for ECM, Stenson remarks, "Openness and belief in the musicians have always been signatures for this record company." And these are the guiding principles behind the :rarum series, too.

Along with Jaco Pastorius, whom he may have influenced, Eberhard Weber transformed the sound of the electric bass in contemporary jazz. His anthology traces his path towards the "liberation" of the instrument and shows his affinity with both American and European players. Weber is heard here with Gary Burton, with Pat Metheny and with Ralph Towner and with several editions of the Jan Garbarek Group as well as with his own projects, featuring musicians as diverse as Bill Frisell and Norma Winstone, Charlie Mariano and Paul McCandless.

An unceasingly brilliant contributor to, we believe, more ECM studio recordings than any other musician, Jon Christensen finally has an album released under his own name. Band-leading has seldom been the great Oslo drummer's priority but in his selection of tracks for his :rarum disc, there is no mistaking the way in which Christensen has driven some mighty ensembles from his seat at the back. Titanic performances from Keith Jarrett's "Belonging" group, Terje Rypdal's "Waves" band, the Bobo Stenson Trio, Ralph Towner and more.

Image Visible World
Ten of the pieces here had their genesis in music written originally for film and ballet. Melodic motifs drawn from this incidental music have been thoroughly transformed and developed in the process of the recording, but the fact remains that the melodies were shaped, in the first place, to accompany specific scenes. The album's impact, in its entirety, however, derives from the way in which these scenes and motifs are combined and ordered; it is the dramaturgy that permits the listener to fly over these audible manifestations of the visible world. Down the years, many listeners have attested to the images Garbarek's music paints in their minds, even when the saxophonist himself has been more concerned - like most musicians - with the practicalities of playing, with his tone, sound and phrasing. This time, he allows, imagery has been a direct spur to the writing of the material. "I don't expect my imagery to correspond in every detail to the listener's," Garbarek says. "I can only propose an outline for the picture: it's up to each listener to complete it in his or her own way."

"Bassist Miroslav Vitous is back. After a long hiatus from jazz, his latest album Universal Syncopations is a powerful statement that picks up his distinguished career from where he left off eight years ago. ... With a dazzling group of sidemen who have all been a part of his musical history, Vitous has created a major statement that could well be one of the critics' picks of 2003. ... While Universal Syncopations is both eloquent and exacting in its inner detail, it never lacks for inspiration. On some tracks Vitous takes the melody on bass, yet the internal dynamics and balance of the overall instrumentation are never upset. Everyone is sure of a personal role and place in shaping this music. Somehow it seems to be a natural extension of the questing brilliance of his 1969 album, Infinite Search. Somehow the past has become the present and present suggests the future as well."

Miroslav Vitous, the great bassist and Weather Report founding member, with an extraordinary cast of old friends, musicians who have changed the course of jazz, in an exciting album that is at once timeless and contemporary.When Vitous and producer Manfred Eicher first began discussing this project - Miroslav's first ECM recording in a decade - one of the conceptual models was the bassist's very first leader date, 1969's "Infinite Search". That historic landmark was long regarded, especially by musicians, as one of the crucial documents of the era. "Universal Syncopations" embodies the spirit of that time without being in any sense nostalgic. The new disc seems to make an ellipsis, continuing where "Infinite Search" left off, picking up the story. The central characters are now mature musicians, yet the purity of the playing remains its most striking characteristic. It retains, thanks to Vitous's compositions and concept, the freshness of discovery. This is the quality that links the album to an era when music was the only "agenda", before the speculative dawn of so-called fusion music, to a time when the protagonists were all still in the process of finding their voices.

"From the very first track ... the saxophonist serves notice that this is going to be a very different album to anything he has done before. The haunting electronically generated sounds seem to hang in the air like an early morning mist and are penetrated, like the early morning sun, by the sharp, almost crystalline definition of Garbarek's saxophone, and, on subsequent tracks by Kashkashian on viola. The multiplicities of meaning conjured between them on pieces like "Knot in Time And place" or "Scene from Afar" take this album to a place where no Garbarek album has gone before. ... A major statement, possibly among his finest, by a major artist."
(Jazzwise)

"In Praise of Dreams" - Jan Garbarek's first new album in six years - features two musicians with whom the great Norwegian saxophonist shares some history - American-Armenian violist Kim Kashkashian and African-French drummer Manu Katché. Garbarek, Kashkashian and Katché span a lot of idioms between them, but the music sings with a focussed sense of purpose, in the context that Jan has shaped for it. If dreams are movies for the mind, the album is aptly titled - its atmospheres are evocative and decidedly 'filmic'.

"Manu Katché, who leads this relaxed supersession featuring trumpeter Tomasz Stanko and saxophonist Jan Garbarek, is the kind of drummer who can't not groove. On Neighbourhood he adds propulsion to the kind of chamber jazz that too often floats in a musical soup of formless percussion. He makes a beautiful sound on his kit, too, and meshes nicely with pianist Marcin Wasilewski and double bassist Slawomir Kurkiewicz on the opening track. ... Neighbourhood is a thoughtful, feelgood jazz album that harks back to the traditions of modern jazz while remaining contemporary - thanks to Katché's inventive drumming."

LIRA / ÅRETS BÄSTA 2008 ENLIGT MAGNUS ERIKSSON

An album of solos and intimate duos with, as its starting point, the sound of Marilyn Mazur's percussion instruments, collected from all over the world - each of them allowed to "speak" with its own voice - either alone or in dialogue with Jan Garbarek's saxophones. The Danish percussionist spent 14 years on the road with the Jan Garbarek Group, appearing on albums including "I Took Up The Runes", "Twelve Moons", "Visible Worlds" and "Rites", but "Elixir" marks the first time that Mazur has established the parameters for their musical collaboration. In these improvisations she continually triggers new responses from Garbarek: yearning melodies, joyful dances, meditations.

Michael DiPasqua, drums, percussion

Eberhard Weber played hundreds of concerts in his time as a member of the Jan Garbarek Group, and each of them included an extended feature for the bassist alone, often effectively a spontaneous composition rather than a 'bass solo' in strict jazz sense. For "Résumé" Weber has returned to recordings of these solo sequences and reworked them into an album with its own sense of flow. The unique sound of Weber's customised electric bass is heard here mostly in the context of his own keyboard settings and treatments, but also augmented by the saxophones and overtone flute of Jan Garbarek (on three tracks) and by the percussion of Michael DiPasqua. Based on live recordings made between 1990 and 2007 at locations from Karlsruhe to Santiago, the album was mixed in the South of France by Weber, Manfred Eicher, Michael DiPasqua and Gérard de Haro in 2011.

OPUS REKOMMENDERAR

EN AV ÅRETS SKIVOR 2010 ENLIGT MAGNUS ERIKSSON PÅ ROOTSY.NU

5 AV 6 MÖJLIGA I BETYG I SVENSKA DAGBLADET

"Charlie Parker uttryckte inte sitt liv i sin musik, han utvecklade medvetet det musikaliska formspråket, både under intryck av afrikansk-amerikanska traditioner och den europeiska konstmusikens modernism. På liknande sätt var frijazzens formupplösning på 1960-talet för många musiker andligt motiverad. De sökte en tillvarons urgrund med sin musik. De borrade sig genom alla tillfälliga bestämningar som melodi och harmonik för att i musiken gestalta mötet med det gudomliga. Det är i det sammanhanget vi ska se saxofonisten Jan Garbareks och The Hilliard Ensembles samarbete. De har givit ut två skivor tidigare, och nu kommer Officium novum. I musiken möts liturgi och improvisation. Östkyrkans musik dominerar den komponerade delen, men Garbarek och The Hilliard Ensemble söker sig bortom de givna lösningarna. De tolkar stycken av den armeniske kompositören Komitas Vardapet men integrerar också stycken från den ryska kyrkans gammeltroende, en grupp som motsatte sig 1600-talets förnyelse av liturgin och flydde till Moldavien. Dessutom tolkar Garbarek och sångkvartetten modernare musik och tonsatta dikter från skilda miljöer, däribland ett poem som speglar ursprungsamerikanernas visionssökande. De strama sångarrangemangen ger musiken dess grundläggande karaktär. I det första stycket, av Komitas, svävar Garbarek i ett serent solo med vackert uthållna toner som understryker styckets högstämda bild av Kristi dop. Tonen är klar, och den vilar i utsökt balans mot sången eller i skör samklang med den. Men Jan Garbarek intensifierar också uttrycket. Han spetsar till sin ton, gör den brutalt uppriktig och skickar iväg studsande hardbopfraser och helt fria improvisationer. Men denna ögonblickets förfulning speglar musikens andliga karaktär. Ty skönheten, anden, segrar i Garbareks och Hilliardkvartettens förinnerligade musik. Så ingår liturgin en organisk förening med jazzens improvisationstänkande.

The inspired bringing together of Jan Garbarek and the Hilliard Ensemble has resulted in consistently inventive music making since 1993. It was the groundbreaking "Officium" album, with Garbarek's saxophone as a free-ranging 'fifth voice' with the Ensemble, which gave the first indications of the musical scope and emotional power of this combination. "Mnemosyne", 1998's double album, took the story further, expanding the repertoire beyond 'early music' to embrace works both ancient and modern.

Now, after another decade of shared experiences, comes a third album from Garbarek/Hilliard, recorded, like its distinguished predecessors, in the Austrian monastery of St Gerold, with Manfred Eicher producing. Aptly titled, there is continuity in the music of "Officium Novum" and also some new departures. In 'Occident/Orient' spirit the album looks eastward, with Armenia as its vantage point and with the compositions and adaptations of Komitas as a central focus. The Hilliards have studied Komitas's pieces, which draw upon both medieval sacred music and the bardic tradition of the Caucasus in the course of their visits to Armenia, and the modes of the music encourage some of Garbarek's most impassioned playing. Works from many sources are drawn together as the musicians embark on their travels through time and over many lands. "Officium Novum" journeys from Yerevan to Byzantium, to Russia, France and Spain and concludes with a musical setting of a Native American text: all voyages embraced by the album's dramaturgical flow, as the individual works are situated in a larger 'compositional' frame.

"Hays hark nviranats ukhti" and "Surb, surb" are part of the Divine Liturgy of the Holy Mass which Komitas Vardapet (1869-1935) arranged on different occasions and for different formations. The versions here derive from those made for male voices in Constantinople in 1914/1915. "Hays hark nviranats ukhti" is a hymn traditionally sung at the beginning of the mass while the priest spreads incense. "Surb, surb" (Holy, holy) corresponds to "Sanctus" in the Latin Mass.

"Ov zarmanali" is a hymn of the Baptism of Christ (Sunday after Epiphany), sung during the ceremony of blessing the water, and "Sirt im sasani" a hymn of "Votnlva" (the bathing-of-the-feet ceremony celebrated on Maundy Thursday).These Komitas pieces are from the period 1910 to 1915, but their roots reach back to antiquity. Ethnomusicologist as well as forward-looking composer-philosopher, Komitas not only showed how Armenian sacred music had developed from folk music, but used folk styles expressively, to make new art music for his era.

"Each of my compositions seems to be part of a mosaic which takes on its ultimate form very slowly through the years", Eleni Karaindrou once said, and the larger picture becomes both clearer and more finely-detailed with each new album. "Concert in Athens" is her tenth release on ECM. It is an exceptional documentation of a performance from 2010, marking a triumphant return to the Athens Concert Hall, the setting for the "Elegy of the Uprooting" shows five years earlier.

A new programme offers new insights, particularly when participating friends include guest soloists Jan Garbarek and Kim Kashkashian, both of whom have made major contributions to the realization of Karaindrou's work in the past - Garbarek with his evocative playing of the themes for The Beekeeper (reprised on the album "Music for Films") and Karaindrou as the key musical protagonist of Ulysses' Gaze. Over the years both artists have periodically returned to join Eleni for special events. Ulysses' Gaze and Beekeeper themes are reprised here, along with music from other films of the late Theo Angelopoulos - Dust of Time, Eternity and a day, Landscape in the Mist and Journey to Cythera, all of them revealing new facets as Kashkashian and Garbarek are featured alongside Eleni's team of soloists (with oboist Vangelis Christopoloulos especially striking). There is also much here that is new or heard on CD for the first time including compositions originally written for theatre productions directed by Antonis Antypas including Who's afraid of Virginia Woolf? by Edward Albee, The Glass Menagerie by Tennessee Williams as well as Jules Dassin's production of Arthur Miller's Death of a Salesman. The differing demands of the theatre music open up a new emotional range for the soloists to explore. Eleni: "I sought to share with them memories from past and more recent voyages in the worlds of theatre and poetry. With Jan I plunged deep into the fascination and torment of Arthur Miller, of Edward Albee and Tennessee Williams..." The album opens and closes with Garbarek's intensely brooding saxophone, accompanied by Karaindrou's piano and the string orchestra, playing the "Requiem for Willie Loman" from Death of a Salesman. Meanwhile, "Kim's sturdy and sensitive bow swept us on a journey to Laura's fragile world in The Glass Menagerie, having first traversed the Closed Roads [one of several newly-arranged pieces of Karaindrou concert music] with all the passion and unmatched internal nobility which distinguish her work." The scope of the music is further expanded with three charming miniatures inspired by M. Karagatsis' novel "Number Ten", and written for the Greek television series of the same name.

The centerpiece of the album - and the title track here - is a specially commissioned work by Pat Metheny, with whom Weber had played and recorded back in the 1970s (on ECM albums including Pat's own Watercolors as well as Gary Burton's Ring and Passengers). Featuring the SWR Big Band conducted by Helge Sunde, Gary Burton, Scott Colley and Danny Gottlieb, this extended composition is built upon recordings of solo improvisations by Weber, subtly orchestrated by Metheny. Pat explains his methodology in his liner notes: "Since Eberhard's stroke in 2007, he has not been able to play. But I felt that his sonic identity was such a huge component in his work that I wanted to somehow acknowledge it in whatever form I could. It came to me that it would be interesting to take the idea of sampling one step further; to find video elements of Eberhard improvising and then reorganize, chop, mix and orchestrate elements of those performances together into a new composition with a large projection of the Eberhard moments that I chose filling a screen behind us as we performed. It seemed like a new way to compose for me that would almost take the form of visual sampling."
