"Both as composer and pianist, Alexander M. Wagner has a natural and imaginative approach to music and his instrument. His talent for composition and interpretation make his musical visions so convincing and original that they justly give rise to great hopes for the future." Pavel Gililov

Zemlinsky's Die Seejungfrau ("The mermaid") is a three-movement symphonic fantasy based on the Hans Andersen story. It was first performed (under the composer's direction) in 1905, and is thus a good deal earlier than the works that have recently excited renewed interest in him—the oneact operas Eine florentinische TragOdie (1916) and Der Zwerg (1921), and the exquisite Lyric Symphony of 1922. In its masterly handling of a large orchestra, however, and of an episodic but firm structure, it is a far from immature piece. Zemlinsky was 34 when he wrote it, after all. If his list of works were not in such a terrible mess—many are unpublished; several, including the present work, were until recently thought to be lost—Die Seejungfrau would count as his Op. 30 or thereabouts.

The original eight-track 1983 album is supplemented by four cuts produced by famed musician Stanley Clarke which remained in the vaults until they were included in a '90s U.S. reissue of the original LP. Following her hit-filled tenure with Capitol Records (1975-1982), Natalie's move to Epic came among personal challenges (outlined in her 2000 memoirs). Nonetheless, 'I'm Ready' saw her reunited with the team of Chuck Jackson & Marvin Yancy who had helmed her '70s string of award-winning best-selling singles and album for five tracks including 'Too Much Mister', a Top US R&B hit. Multi-talented music man Stanley Clarke produced three tracks, co-producing one with a member of Natalie's band, Chuck Bynum.

Werner Müller (2. August 1920 in Berlin; 28. Dezember 1998 in Köln) war ein deutscher Autor, Komponist, Dirigent, Arrangeur und Orchesterleiter. Eigentlich wollte Müller „Afrikaforscher“ werden, ersatzweise auch Mediziner. Sein Vater sorgte jedoch dafür, dass er eine Musikausbildung erhielt. Klavier und Geige waren die ersten Instrumente Müllers und mit 10 Jahren trat er bereits als Solist mit einem Violinkonzert von Mozart auf. 1936 ging Müller auf die Militärmusikschule in Bückeburg. Dort lernte er auch noch Posaune. Während des Wehrdienstes kam Müller in ein Musikcorps, in dem auch der Geiger Helmut Zacharias diente. In amerikanischer Kriegsgefangenschaft machte Werner Müller begeistert Bekanntschaft mit dem Swing.

Agricola was praised by his contemporaries for the bizarre turn of his inspiration, and his music likened to quicksilver. By the standards of the period this is a highly unusual turn of phrase, but remains spot-on. The Ferrara Ensemble anthology, the first ever devoted to the composer, focused on the secular music, both instrumental and vocal, precisely the area covered by Michael Posch and Ensemble Unicorn in this most satisfying disc. Where there's duplication (surprisingly little, in fact) the performances compare with those of the Ferrara Ensemble, although the style of singing is very different. The voices are more up front and less inflected, perhaps the better to match the high instruments with which they're sometimes doubled. But the tensile quality of Agricola's lines comes through none the less, as does the miraculous inventiveness and charm of his music. Further, much of what's new to the catalogue really is indispensible, for example Agricola's most famous song, Allez, regretz. Unicorn keeps its improvisations and excursions to a minimum, and the music is the better for it. It really is a must-have.

In Zeiten künstlich aufgezogener Hypes gilt sie als die letzte harte Währung der deutschen Pop-Musik: die Authentizität. Nach den verspielten 90-ern und der verkaterten Verwirrung der 2000-er könnte das aktuelle Jahrzehnt allerdings als Ära dahinsiechender Effekthascherei in die Geschichte eingehen. Auf "Von Mücken und Elefanten" stilisiert sich der christliche Singer/Songwriter Johannes Falk deshalb als Bollwerk der Kredibilität zwischen Native-Advertising-Pop und Proberaum-Romantik. Doch je länger man dem nebenberuflichen Texter für Max Giesinger und Laith Al-Deen zuhört, desto mehr fragt man sich: Wie echt sind seine Geschichten?

One twentieth-century composer that trod his own path decisively, perhaps more than any other, is Gottfried von Einem. Since his breakthrough with the premiere of his opera Dantons Tod ('The Death of Danton') at the Salzburg Festival in 1947, through to the composer’s death in 1996, many of his works have been performed on the international music stage, as recordings featuring the likes of Böhm, Karajan and George Szell on Orfeo testify. Now, the label is delighted to mark the 100th anniversary of the composer's birth by releasing a retrospective of von Einem’s work featuring the very best performers of today.
