Zara Alexandrovna Levina, born 1906 in Alexandrovsk (Ukraine), witnessed two world wars, the Revolution as well as the collapse and totalitarian reconstruction of her homeland. She was under the constant ideological pressure of the existentially threatening state censorship, which was particularly exerted by the notorious RAPM (Russian Association of Proletarian Musicians) in the 1920s and 1930s, driving her to the brink of a creative and health disaster. However, Zara Levina was able to retain her own and unmistakable voice in her music.

Maria Lettberg performs works by Scriabin on CD. The CD includes fascinating visualizations of Scriabin's music - the composer associated with his music with color progressions. Scriabin is the only true heir of Chopin, in the sense that his piano music not only derives from the piano but also extends and redefines the scope of the very instrument - indeed, more of an acquired taste due to its vast idiosyncrasies but possibly even more addictive.

Many, perhaps most, listeners may lose interest in this disc of Schnittke's three piano concertos after the first concerto ends. But some, not a lot, perhaps, but a very enthusiastic minority, will gain interest after that. The Concerto for piano and orchestra from 1960 shows the influence of Bartók, with lots of brass and percussion in the outer movements and plenty of swashbuckling pianism throughout. The Concerto for piano and strings from 1979, however, is a more dissonant, allusive, and often frankly brutal work, and the Concerto for piano four hands and chamber orchestra from 1988 is more fractured and fractious still, driving the soloists and the orchestra to the brink of collapse in the climaxes.

“Several years ago I presented a recording of all piano works with opus numbers by Alexander Scriabin. I rehearsed, played in concerts and then recorded eight CDs, 207 works, and eight hours of music”, notes pianist Maria Lettberg. “Scriabin’s music becomes accessible via a roundabout route but then it gets under your skin and intoxicates you like a drug, makes you euphoric, addicted and…happy.” With the present recording of the early works without opus numbers, she happily completes her mammoth survey of Scriabin.

I’m feeling like a writer with a creative crisis to describe this beauty of an album. Perhaps my problem is to understand why this unusual and late Bossa Nova session featuring international musicians could result in such a solid album. Joao Gilberto has the control, playing the role of arranger and producer to work together with Tropicalia icons Caetano Veloso and Gilberto Gil to make this sublime record. This is an essential album that everybody should take for a listening and file as special on your Brazilian music affair.

Alessandro Scarlatti is generally considered one of the most important Italian composers of the late 17th and early 18th centuries. But his music, although it has received more attention in recent years, is still largely unknown. This is partly due to the large quantity of his output: in the genre of the chamber cantata alone at least six hundred compositions are with certainty attributable to him.
