Johann JohanssonOrphee ... CD
Deutsche Grammophon (Germany), 2016. New Copy ... $11.99 18.99
A beautiful re-interpretation of the myth of Orpheus – handled here by composer Johann Johannsson in a beautiful style that recalls some of the best Deutsche Grammophon projects from Max Richter! The composer plays a variety of keyboards – including electric and pipe organ – in shifting settings that either feature the American Contemporary Ensemble's strings, the cello of Hildur Guonadottir, the AIR Lyndhurst String Orchestra, or the shifting Theater Of Voices conducted by Paul Hillier – all musical elements which are sampled and used carefully alongside Johannsson's keyboards and a bit of electronics – with results that seem to take the generation of 4AD and advance it more than a few steps with a new sort of complexity and emotional depth. The blend of the compositional and personal here is wonderful – maybe even more so than in Richter's work – and titles include "A Pile Of Dust", "Flight From The City", "The Radiant City", "Fragment II", "The Burning Mountain", "Good Morning Midnight", and "Orphic Hymn".

✨✧ Terry RileyRainbow In Cologne ... CD
Be! (Germany), 1971. New Copy 2CD ... Just Sold Out!
A fantastic addition to the catalog of Terry Riley during his most influential years – a set that features two long, extended organ performances by the minimalist – both on a par with his best records of the time! The similarity in title to Riley's classic Rainbow In Curved Air album is no surprise – as the sound here is very similar, and he performs a stunning 61 minute version of that song on the first CD in the set – one that's more open, more expressive, and more compelling than even the studio take – as Terry layers his lines on organ in a really beautiful way! CD2 features and equally wonderful version of "Persian Surgery Dervishes" – almost 50 minutes in length, and done at a level that shows how important individual examples of performance were amidst the minimalist canon!
