Cecilia Zilliacus & Bengt Forsberg - " Swedish Violin Treasures"??

Högsta betyg i Hifi & Musik
”Så har Bengt Forsberg på nytt letat fram guldkorn ur arkiven, denna gång tillsammans med violinisten Cecilia Zilliacus som ständigt övertygar med sina genomtänkta tolkningar. Skivan förgyller denna isolerade vår.” (Stig Jacobsson)

Högt betyg 5 (av 6) i Capriccio.se och i Musikrevyn (P2)!
”Alla verken är nya för mina öron, men jag kan knappast tänka mig så värst mycket bättre framföranden än dem Zilliacus och Forsberg här bjuder på. De spelar genomgående med stor entusiasm och känsla både vad beträffar virtuositet och känslodjup. Dessutom är samspelet enastående.” (Yehya Alazem, Capriccio.se)

”Energiskt och skickligt förmedlat av Zilliacus och Forsberg, ständigt på jakt efter de rätta accenterna och dragningarna.” (Carlhåkan Larsén, Opus)

Herbert Blomstedt/Gewandhausorchester Leipzig - "Brahms Symphony No. 1"

Maestro Herbert Blomstedt and the Gewandhausorchester Leipzig present the first fruit of their integral Brahms symphonies project with a recording of the composer’s First Symphony in C Minor, alongside his Tragic Overture. Once celebrated as “Beethoven’s Tenth”, Brahms’ first attempt at the symphonic genre was generally greeted as the most promising answer to Beethoven’s legendary legacy, and solidified his musical reputation. For Blomstedt, bringing these Brahms pieces into the world in the strange year of 2020 has a special significance, as Robert Schumann, Brahms’ close friend and mentor, once pointed out that it is the musician’s mission “to bring light into the depths of the human soul”. The euphoric finale of Brahms’ First Symphony, evidently inspired by Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy”, fully conveys this message of hope and Blomstedt’s unshakable belief in the imperishable power of the human spirit. Blomstedt’s work as a conductor is inseparably linked to his religious and human ethos, and his interpretations combine great faithfulness to the score and analytical precision with a soulfulness that awakens the music to pulsating life. In the more than sixty years of his career, he has acquired the unrestricted respect of the musical world. The Gewandhausorchester Leipzig is the oldest civic orchestra in the world with a glorious history, and is still counted among the world’s leading ensembles. Both make their PENTATONE debut.

IJacob Kellerman & Christian Karlsen - "Rodrigo, Coll & harden: Guitar Works"

nspired by Miles Davis’s legendary album Sketches of Spain, this project intends to conjure up Spain ‘as if through a prism - as a concept rather than a place’. Guitarist Jacob Kellermann and conductor Christian Karlsen worked with hyped young composers Francisco Coll and Pete Harden, who have each contributed a concertante work for guitar and ensemble. With Turia, Coll has returned to his roots – the dried-out river that once flowed through his (and Rodrigo’s) hometown Valencia. He has described it as his most ‘flamenco-colored’ work so far, intended to ‘evoke the light and the respective shadows’ of Spain. Turiais followed by two classics of Spanish music: Manuel de Falla’s Homenaje for solo guitar and Evocaciónby Isaac Albéniz, here in Karlsen’s atmospheric arrangement for ensemble. The last word on the album goes to British composer Pete Harden. His affinity to jazz and non-classical tradition shine through Solace and Shimmer, which is based on the same chords that underpins Rodrigo’s Adagio. Kellermann enjoys strong support by the London Philharmonic Orchestra (in Conciertode Aranjuez) and the seven members of Norrbotten NEO.

CD: Amanda Ginsburg - "Det lilla händer det mesta"

Amanda Ginsburg is a rising star in Swedish music, with a Swedish Grammy in the category Best jazz album 2018. She sings like an angel, with the tantalizing combination of innocence and wisdom that the word implies.

On September 11 she will release her second album I det lilla händer det mesta (essence of the title in English
would be: Every journey begins with a single step). During the spring Amanda released two singles and she and her quartet has performed live on the Swedish channel 4 morning show and in July they performed for a second time in one of Swedens most loved tv programs, the sing-a-long show called Allsång på Skansen. Now they are more than ready to start their release tour.

Since Amanda Ginsburg’s debut album was released in 2018 she has received several scholarships and prices. From SKAP (Swedish composers and lyricists) she recieved a jazz price with the motivation: There is an echo of our legendary jazz singers in her music. She has the ability to create particularly charming songs which are inspired by her heritage but speaks with a completely unique voice.

In February 2019 Amanda received a Swedish Grammy for Best Jazz
This is what Amanda says about the new recording: I see this second album as a continuation of my first. Here are the everyday and sometimes a bit banal stories
that make up such a large part of my life and often also yours. In the little everyday life I find endless
inspiration. When I start too big, I actually get nothing done.

CD: Ellen Andersson - "You Should Have Told Me"

Her debut album “I’ll Be Seeing You”, 2016, was instantly praised by both critics and audiences, receiving rave reviews and quickly establishing herself as one of the most notable artists on the Swedish jazz scene. Millions of streams and hundreds of concerts later, the most recent years have led her to cooperations with some of Sweden’s finest orchestras, such as Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra and Norrbotten Big Band, among others - but on her new album, she returns to the core: jazz quartet, an acoustic sound, but with a contemporary and personal view.

Since her debut, Ellen has received multiple awards such as Gyllene Skivan (best Swedish Jazz Album of the Year), Jazzkatten (Newcomer of the Year) by Swedish National Radio P2, as well as numerous grants and scholarships.
