Stellari String Quartet: Vulcan

Read "Vulcan" reviewed by Alberto Bazzurro


A dieci anni esatti dal precedente (e fin qui unico) album Gocce stellari, uscito sempre su Emanem, il quartetto d'archi capitanato da Philipp Wachsmann, settantacinquenne violinista ugandese di nascita e inglese d'adozione, torna alla carica con questo nuovo capitolo (incisioni, peraltro, del 2016), fondato come il precedente su un'improvvisazione di gruppo a cavallo fra avanguardia jazzistica ...

Stellari String Quartet: Vulcan

Read "Vulcan" reviewed by John Eyles


Despite the years that have elapsed since Stellari String Quartet's first album, Gocce Stellari (Emanem, 2009), right from the opening notes of this follow-up, Vulcan, there is not a shadow of a doubt that it is by the same group, with the same members and ethos. The combination of Philipp Wachsmann's violin, Charlotte Hug's viola, Marcio ...

Contrasting Faces of Spontaneous Music Ensemble

Read "Contrasting Faces of Spontaneous Music Ensemble" reviewed by John Eyles


For years, the Emanem label has had so many releases by Spontaneous Music Ensemble in its catalogue that it has become the de facto guardian of the SME legacy, the keeper of the flame. Although there have been excellent SME recordings on other labels--Karyobin (Island, 1968; Chronoscope, 1993) and Spontaneous Music Ensemble (Marmalade, 1969; Polydor, 1972) ...

John Edwards / Okkyung Lee: White Cable, Black Wires

Read "White Cable, Black Wires" reviewed by John Eyles


After its impressive debut, it is gratifying to report that the Fataka label seems set to continue in similar vein. Recorded by Sebastian Lexer in May 2011, White Cable, Black Wires follows the pattern of the first two Fataka releases, featuring a small, intimate setting involving a key London improviser-- this time, bassist John Edwards paired ...

Stellari String Quartet: Gocce stellari

Read "Gocce stellari" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Dalla dotta disquisizione astronomica di Marcio Mattos, riportata nelle note di copertina, apprendiamo che le “gocce stellari" del titolo sono minuti sciami stellari visibili solo con potenti telescopi nella Nebulosa di Orione. La passione per l'astronomia, coltivata da Mattos fin da ragazzo, spiega almeno in parte l'origine e il senso della musica di questo disco. L'intento ...

Stellari String Quartet: Gocce Stellari

Read "Gocce Stellari" reviewed by John Eyles


Over the years, Emanem has nobly championed the cause of improvising string players. Back in 2001, the label released the groundbreaking triple CD Strings with Evan Parker on which the majority of tracks actually featured strings without Parker's sax. Before that came Kent Carter's's string trio of bass, violin and viola. More recently, Emanem has released ...
