Francois Couturier / Tarkovsky Quartet: Nuit Blanche

Read "Nuit Blanche" reviewed by John Kelman


Following their sublime duo outing, Moderato Cantabile (ECM, 2014), cellist Anja Lechner and François Couturier reunite in the pianist's quartet responsible for two-thirds of a recorded trilogy for ECM Records, all devoted to Soviet filmmaker Andrei Tarkovsky, whose name would ultimately become synonymous with the group: Tarkovsky Quartet. Bookending Couturier's second album of the ...

Anja Lechner / François Couturier: Moderato cantabile

Read "Moderato cantabile" reviewed by John Kelman


ECM Records has long divided its discography in two: the regular series, representing music of a more improvisational bent; and its New Series, featuring largely classical music ranging from the contemporary to the archaic, but more truly defined in its through-composed nature. Still, the line between the two has, however, often been a porous one, where ...

Manfred Eicher: ECM - Selected Signs III - VIII

Read "Manfred Eicher: ECM - Selected Signs III - VIII" reviewed by John Kelman


When München's Haus der Kunst sponsored a nearly three-month exhibition about the ECM Records label, ECM: A Cultural Archeology, which ran from November, 2012 to February, 2013, there was far more to it than just bringing together collections of album covers, rarely seen video, archival tapes, imagery and concert performances. As much as ECM has carved ...

The Gurdjieff Folk Instruments Ensemble / Levon Eskenian: Music of Georges I. Gurdjieff

Read "Music of Georges I. Gurdjieff" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski


Philosopher, traveler, mystic, spiritual adventurer, teacher, musician and a fervent seeker of esoteric knowledge, G. I. Gurdjieff and his legacy are still of interest to many. His early years shrouded in mystery, he wandered through Central Asia and Middle East while still a young man, absorbing the spiritual and philosophical ideas of the religions he encountered, ...

Vassilis Tsabropoulos: The Promise

Read "The Promise" reviewed by AAJ Italy Staff


Chissà se Vassilis Tsabropoulos ha paura del vuoto. La risposta potrebbe essere negativa, dal momento che The Promise, il disco in piano solo registrato al Megaron Concert Hall di Atene con la produzione di Manfred Eicher, lascia emergere molte situazioni dai suoni diradati, distanti, piene di spazi lasciati liberi, sospesi. Undici tracce che, senza indugio, scavano ...

Vassilis Tsabropoulos/Anja Lechner/U.T. Ghandi: Melos

Read "Melos" reviewed by Dan McClenaghan


Melos approaches a highbrow listening experience. It's another gorgeous offering from ECM Records, teaming Greek pianist Vassilis Tsabropoulos with German cellist Anja Lechner and Italian drummer U.T. Gandhi. From the first delicate piano notes of the title tune, joined in short order by the rich, mournful cry of the cello, it's obvious that the players have ...

Vassilis Tsabropoulos / Anja Lechner: Melos

Read "Melos" reviewed by Budd Kopman


While the composer, performer and listener approach any given piece of music from differing perspectives, each needs the others for a work to become fully actualized. Improvisation combines the first two roles to the extent it is done, bringing the listener closer to the source of the inspiration. Melos is an extraordinary musical ...
