The catastrophe of Fukushima in March 2011 prompted Sandeep Bhagwati to spontaneously write 17 haiku compositions as musical elegies - in memory of the victims, but also as a "meditation on the thin skin of our civilization on this restless planet" (Bhagwati). 
This edition presents 5 complete versions of the Miyagi Haikus in different instrumentations.
It includes 5 cycles of poems by Yoko Tawada, Yang Lian, Monika Rinck, Ranjit Hoskote, and Christian Filips written in response to these recordings.

Since their first joint CD project in 2011 Katharina Bäuml (shawm) and Margit Kern (accordion), as the ensemble Mixtura, have developed programmes, which combine music of the Middle Ages or the Renaissance with specially commissioned pieces of New Music. Their precept is the examination of one certain starting point, which, in the course of the programme, combines both musical fields with each another. Their present album looks at a musical icon of the Trecento and examines to what extent the themes of the 14th century are compatible with today’s attitudes and aesthetics.

 
New Goldberg Variations

New Goldberg Variations

David Geringas violoncello
Ian Fountain piano

catalog number: 21108

David Geringas heard about the existence of the New Goldberg Variations in 1997, shortly after the first performance, and integrated into his project ‘Bach Plus’ excerpts from John Corigliano’s Fancy on a Bach Air as an introduction to Bach’s Cello Suite Nr. 1. In 2014, while planning a CD with works by American composers, he remembered about the New Goldberg Variations, and in 2015 he performed the piece, which is exactly the length a one half of a recital, in Parma, Italy, together with the pianist Ian Fountain, who is also the pianist on this recording. One year later, while being interviewed for his 70th birthday, he concretized the idea for this CD.

"Ensemble Extrakte – this name outlines a musical program. The thirteen treatises in this album are seismographic soundscapes of uncommon encounters. When we brought together the eleven musical polyglots of Ensemble Extrakte in music, they came from widely different musical backgrounds and cultures; some were virtuosos in more than one genre or tradition. To each of us, music meant something else, they made their music for different communities and contexts. But they all lived in Berlin – and our idea was to create a music that would truly reflect this new ensemble, its roots and its global aspirations." Sandeep Bhagwati
