Eleni Karaindrou (Greece)
"The Weeping Meadow" Slipcase CD 2004, ECM / ECM New Series
13.00EUR • approx. 18.9USD [ add to cart ]
A hauntingly beautiful piece of music that hovers in the air, only occasionally touching down into something more specific. Serene, occasionally melancholic, the string orchestra and piano once again weave nicely with traditional instrumentation.

Eleni Karaindrou (Greece)
"Medea" Slipcase CD 2014, ECM / ECM New Series
14.00EUR • approx. 20.3USD [ recommended ] : [ add to cart ]
Textures of santouri, ney, lyra and clarinets are combined and contrasted in an ambiance both archaic and contemporary, whereas Giorgos Cheimonas Modern Greek adaptation of Euripides provides the lyrics, movingly sung by a 15-piece chorus. Superb.

"Trauerfarbenes Land" Slipcase CD 1998, ECM / ECM New Series
13.00EUR • approx. 18.9USD [ add to cart ]
Two orchestral works, presenting stark contrasts in Kancheli's music: "... ŕ la Duduki" holds a fanfare-like energy, whereas "Trauerfarbenes..." leads us to a different mood altogether, even through both stands as beautiful anthemic and solemn.

Keller Quartett (Hungary)
"Ligeti String Quartets / Barber Adagio" Slipcase CD 2013, ECM / ECM New Series
13.00EUR • approx. 18.9USD [ add to cart ]
A odd programme which brings together Ligeti's avant-garde Modern Classical, stock full of dissonance and rough textures, with 'Adagio', the wellknown emotional elegy by Barber. Keller Quarett somehow bridge the gap between both worlds.
