EK IS EIK, the debut Big Round Records release for critically acclaimed Dutch composer and harpist Anne Vanschothorst, features works for contemporary classical harp with a distinctly jazz twist. By way of solo harp pairing with instruments such as the trumpet, viola da gamba, percussion, and bass, Vanschothorst's music mirrors her passion for experimentation and eclecticism. The album features trumpeter Saskia Laroo, gambist Ernst Stolz, bassist Thijs de Melker, percussionist Arthur Bont and Bob van Luijt ,digi-orchestration alongside the composer herself. Recorded in her home studio, the harp was recorded separately with the rest of the instruments being overdubbed, giving each artist the opportunity to create their own musical narrative while reacting to Vanschothorst's harp. EK IS EIK is distributed via NAXOS. Or visit the bigroundrecords.com website for your favorite musicstore.

The Symphony No. 4 in G Major by Gustav Mahler was written in 1899 and 1900, though it incorporates a song originally written in 1892. The song, "Das himmlische Leben" or "The Heavenly Life", presents a child's vision of Heaven. It is sung by a boy soprano in the work's fourth and last movement. Although typically described as being in the key of G major, the symphony employs a progressive tonal scheme. Mahler's first four symphonies are often referred to as the "Wunderhorn" symphonies because many of their themes originate in earlier songs by Mahler on texts from Des Knaben Wunderhorn (The Youth's Magic Horn). The fourth symphony is built around a single song, "Das himmlische Leben". It is prefigured in various ways in the first three movements and sung in its entirety by a solo soprano in the fourth movement. Mahler composed "Das himmlische Leben" as a free-standing piece in 1892. The title is Mahler's own: in the Wunderhorn collection the poem is called "Der Himmel hängt voll Geigen" (an idiomatic expression akin to "there's not a cloud in the sky"). Several years later Mahler considered using the song in the fifth and seventh movement, the finale, of his Third symphony. While motifs from "Das himmlische Leben" are found in the Third symphony, Mahler eventually decided not to include it in that work and, instead, made the song the goal and source of his Fourth Symphony. The Fourth Symphony thus presents a thematic fulfilment of the musical world of the Third, which is part of the larger tetralogy of the first four symphonies, as Mahler described them to Natalie Bauer-Lechner. Early plans in which the Symphony was projected as a six-movement work included another Wunderhorn song, "Das irdische Leben" ("Earthly Life") as a somber pendant to "Das himmlische Leben," offering a tableau of childhood starvation in juxtaposition to heavenly abundance, but Mahler later decided on a simpler structure for the score. Today, the solo is usually sung by a female soprano or preferrably an alto.  However for our version we wanted the solo to be performed by a male soprano so the young soloist's voice could truly give a youth's vision of what heaven is like.

For this edition of the Verdi Opera Series we are proud to present to you Otello as performed by the CMD Grand Opera Company of Venice.  You can purchase the complete performance of this opera below by clicking on the "Buy Now" button for only $1.99.  Or, just visit our store at www.ClassicalRecordings.co Otello is an opera in four acts by Giuseppe Verdi to an Italian libretto by Arrigo Boito, based on Shakespeare's play Othello. It was Verdi's penultimate opera, and was first performed at the Teatro alla Scala, Milan, on 5 February 1887. With the composer's reluctance to write anything new after the success of Aida in 1871 and his retreat into retirement, it took his Milan publisher Giulio Ricordi the next ten years, first to persuade him to write anything, then to encourage the revision of Verdi's 1857 Simon Boccanegra by introducing Boito as librettist, and finally to begin the arduous process of persuading and cajoling Verdi to see Boito's completed libretto for Otello in July/August 1881. By that time no music had yet been written, and the composer did not guarantee that any would be written. Purchase the complete opera as performed by the CMD Grand Opera Company of Venice for only $1.99 USD. Just click on the "Buy Now" button below to purchase and immediately download.

For comments about this show, please email:Ken Hedgecock - ken@ClassicalMusicDiscoveries.com Welcome to this month's edition of the Southwest Symphony Hour. This month we are pleased to bring to you and outrageously fun concert featuring the Southwest Symphony Orchestra performing with the Side Street Strutters. In 1983 a group of talented musicians attending Arizona State University formed a musical ensemble whose artistic focus centered around the musical traditions of early New Orleans jazz. Now, over 25 years later, the same core members are still together and have expanded their musical palette to include over a half-century of jazz styles from early New Orleans Dixieland and blues to big band swing and popular standards. The Strutters have presented formal concerts, symphony pops performances and student outreach programs in fifty states, seven European countries, Canada and Mexico. Their superb musicianship and award-winning orchestrations have earned them national and international acclaim: NEA awarded fellowships and grants; California Arts Council and Northwest On Tour Roster Artists; First Place Honors, Breda International Jazz Competition, Holland; National radio and television appearances; International Association of Jazz Educators Outstanding Musicianship Award; appearances at dozens of European and U.S. jazz festivals, and a guest presidential performance -- all this, in addition to their regular performances at California's Disneyland. In concert, The Side Street Strutters weave a delicate tapestry of lush ballads, whimsical novelty selections, and powerful, challenging arrangements which showcase the individual artistry of each performer. Together, this energetic and entertaining septet brilliantly captures the essential charm and vibrant energy of Jazz -- America's musical heritage. This month's concert was performed on May 9, 2014 and recorded live at the Cox Auditorium on the Dixie State University campus in St. George, Utah. We wish to express our gratitude to the Side Street Strutters for allowing us to record and broadcast their concert with the Southwest Symphony Orchestra.
