Image Peter Mattei sings Schubert’s Winterreise
Peter Mattei has won great acclaim as a singer with unusual dramatic gifts, appearing on the world’s leading stages in complex operatic roles such as Don Giovanni, Billy Budd and Eugene Onegin. On the present disc he takes on a no less complex character in the Lieder canon: the traveller in Schubert’s Winterreise. In this cycle, Schubert returned to the poet Wilhelm Müller, whose poems he had set some years earlier, in his other great song cycle, Die schöne Müllerin. Müller’s texts revolve around a young man who after being rejected leaves his village and heads into the desolate, snowy countryside. In the course of the cycle he experiences loss and an aching loneliness interrupted by fleeting glimpses of hope, but ultimately the landscape through which he is moving is coloured by alienation and despair. Müller died thirty-two years old in 1827, the very year in which Winterreise was composed – and Schubert himself died the following year, still making revisions to the last of the songs while on his deathbed. When Schubert invited his closest friends to a gathering in order to listen to the cycle he called the songs ‘gruesome’, and according to one witness the audience was shocked by their sombre mood. In this recording, Mattei brings all his interpretive skills to bear. He is supported by the piano of Lars David Nilsson, which reinforces the different moods and characters of the twenty-four songs and often assumes the role of a narrator, alongside the singer.

Image In dulci jubilo
En instrumental julskiva från improvisationstrion Trio X. Trion har låtit sig inspireras av kända julsånger och tolkat dessa på eget sätt. Trio X består av Lennart Simonsson-piano, Per V Johansson-bas och Joakim Ekberg-trummor, och detta är deras första gemensamma skiva. Trion har sedan starten 2002 arbetat med egen musik men de har även samarbetat med flera av Sveriges främsta musiker. Idén till en julskiva föddes när Trio X medverkade i en julgala där de framförde ett par välkända julsånger instrumentalt och som fick mycket positiv respons, bl a "In dulci jubilo" som också blev titelspåret på cd:n. All anglosaxisk julmusik är utesluten eftersom Trio X ser den så rikt exponerad på annat håll. Resultatet är tre psalmer, tre folkliga koraler, tre danslekar och en sång av C J L Almkvist. Texterna har haft stor betydelse för Trio X i tolkningarna så de finns med i konvolutet trots att allt spelas instrumentalt.

Image You should have told me
Succédebuten 2016 med “I’ll Be Seeing You” hyllades av både recensenter och publik såväl i Sverige som utomlands. Sedan dess har hon etablerat sig som en av de mest framstående rösterna på den svenska jazzscenen. Med miljontals streams och hundratals konserter i ryggen har hon de senaste åren setts och hörts på scener och konserthus över hela landet, bland annat med Sveriges Radios Symfoniorkester, Malmö Symfoniorkester och Norrbotten Big Band - men på det nya albumet återvänder hon till kärnan: jazzkvartett, ett modernt, akustiskt sound - nutida, fängslande och personligt.

För debutalbumet fick Ellen bland annat ta emot Gyllene Skivan för årets bästa jazzutgivning, Jazzkatten i kategorin “Årets nykomling” av Sveriges Radio P2. Nyligen belönades hon med Gunnar Hoffstens Stipendium (2020).

Her debut album “I’ll Be Seeing You”, 2016, was instantly praised by both critics and audiences, receiving rave reviews and quickly establishing herself as one of the most notable artists on the Swedish jazz scene. Millions of streams and hundreds of concerts later, the most recent years have led her to cooperations with some of Sweden’s finest orchestras, such as Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra and Norrbotten Big Band, among others - but on her new album, she returns to the core: jazz quartet, an acoustic sound, but with a contemporary and personal view.

Since her debut, Ellen has received multiple awards such as Gyllene Skivan (best Swedish Jazz Album of the Year), Jazzkatten (Newcomer of the Year) by Swedish National Radio P2, as well as numerous grants and scholarships.

Image Symphony No. 1
Maestro Herbert Blomstedt and the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig present the first fruit of their integral Brahms symphonies project with a recording of the composer’s First Symphony in C Minor, alongside his Tragic Overture. Once celebrated as “Beethoven’s Tenth”, Brahms’ first attempt at the symphonic genre was generally greeted as the most promising answer to Beethoven’s legendary legacy, and solidified his musical reputation. For Blomstedt, bringing these Brahms pieces into the world in the strange year of 2020 has a special significance, as Robert Schumann, Brahms’ close friend and mentor, once pointed out that it is the musician’s mission “to bring light into the depths of the human soul”. The euphoric finale of Brahms’ First Symphony, evidently inspired by Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy”, fully conveys this message of hope and Blomstedt’s unshakable belief in the imperishable power of the human spirit. Blomstedt’s work as a conductor is inseparably linked to his religious and human ethos, and his interpretations combine great faithfulness to the score and analytical precision with a soulfulness that awakens the music to pulsating life. In the more than sixty years of his career, he has acquired the unrestricted respect of the musical world. The Gewandhausorchester Leipzig is the oldest civic orchestra in the world with a glorious history, and is still counted among the world’s leading ensembles. Both make their PENTATONE debut.

Image Old and New World Christmas
De mest sensationella julsångerna på den här skivan har hämtats från de tidigare spanska kolonierna Peru och Mexico. Deras stil är företrädesvis spansk men med vissa folkloristiska inslag från urbefolkningen (inkaspråket quechua och instrumentet marimba). Gamla världen representeras av sånger från Sverige-Finland, Tyskland och Spanien. Gruppens ledare Sven Berger har skrivit 3- och 4-stämmiga satser på melodierna i Piae cantiones och delvis berikat de mexikanska satserna med improvisanta extrastämmor.

Image Jackets XL
As a tight, longstanding jazz ensemble, Yellowjackets has explored a universe all its own of electro-acoustic soundscapes in its nearly four-decade history. Since the band’s eponymous 1981 debut album, Yellowjackets has consistently forged ahead with innovative and challenging artistic statements. For Jackets XL, its 25th album and fourth for Mack Avenue Music Group, the band continues to stretch and reinvent itself with an exciting, full-bodied collaboration with the superb WDR Big Band of Cologne, Germany. The project combines the shapeshifting, multiple GRAMMY® Award-winning quartet with the renowned big band, re-imagining well-known band originals with dynamic new arrangements that feature twists and turns, textures and colors, moving harmonies and bold solos. “This band has never been one to rest on its laurels,” says tenor saxophonist/EWI player Bob Mintzer, a Yellowjacket since 1990 and the WDR Big Band principal conductor since 2016. “The Yellowjackets are very adept at reinventing. The four of us are the most adaptable musicians I’ve ever worked with. Any setting, any style, we know we can do it. As for the WDR, they’re one of the best large jazz ensembles in the world. I knew the two groups would make for a nice marriage.” The band also comprises founder, keyboardist Russell Ferrante, drummer Will Kennedy and electric bassist Dane Alderson in his third recording for the group
