New Classical in 2012

Stainless Staining [EP] // Lisa Moore // Cantaloupe — Resonant, entrancing piano music by an Irish composer Donnacha Dennehy, augmented with samples of G# overtones. [soundcloud]

Mendelssohn: Songs without Words, books 1-4 // Ronald Brautigam, Mendelssohn // BIS — Sensitive performances of early Romantic-era miniatures for solo piano, played on a historical instrument.

Norwegian Woods OST // Jonny Greenwood // Nonesuch — Radiohead guitarist would be doing pretty well for himself even if he just wrote movie soundtracks.

Johannes Brahms: The Complete Trios // Smetana Trio (w/ Premysl Vojta, Ludmila Peterkova) // Supraphon — This Czech trio brings it.

Where [we] Live // Sō Percussion // Cantaloupe — Album realization of a Kickstarter-backed, collaborative, multi-media performance exploring concept of ‘home’: toy percussion instruments, spoken word, singing, electronics — the works.  Based on this trailer, looks like ambitious stuff. Performance has already premiered at Walker Art Center in Minneapolis, with future performance during the BAM Next Wave Festival in Brooklyn, December 19-22.  [soundcloud]

Heavy// ETHEL // Innova — Adventurous, rock-solid contemporary string quartet playing. Includes Don Byron’s ‘Four Thoughts on Marvin Gaye’ and works by Julia Wolfe and David Lang. [streaming on ETHEL website]
