    Leo Brouwer is one of the leading voices in modern Cuban guitar music. This is an early Cuban LP, with Brouwer playing – I guess it´s from the late 60s or early 70s (if you know better, please correct) – and before a tendon injury stopped his playing career.

    The beautiful folk and dance rhythms draw me to much of the guitar music of Latin America, but it can often stray into sentimental territory. That´s the last thing you could say about the music on this LP. In Brouwer´s own ‘Elegy of the Dance’, the drumming of the fingers on the instrument is not just a dance rhythm, but is also the sound of a farmer drilling seeds in the field, and echoes many of the themes in Villa-Lobos´s first prelude for guitar. It is an understated, but concentrated and intense piece of music that rewards repeated listening.

    Leo Brouwer – Guitarra (Areito LD-4189)

    Carlos Fariñas – Prelúdio

    José Ardévol – Sonata para Guitarra

    Manuel Ponce – Sonatina Meridional

    Leo Brouwer – Elogio de la Danza

    Heitor Villa-Lobos – Estudio no. 7

    For Cuban vinyl of this age, it sounds remarkably good, but I´m putting this up in 320 kbps mp3. Naxos have been doing a very good job in making this and other modern guitar work more available – here is a good place to jump in, and I´d recommend any of the Brouwer series. 

    By the way, there is a fantastic resource online - the blog of Fabio Zanon, containing an archive of his radio programmes documenting the history of Brazilan guitar. I can’t think of a better way to get to know much of this music. Fabio Zanon is also an exceptionally talented guitarist, whose recordings and performances are strongly recommended!

    This is a contribution from Alex from Solex - I like it so much that I was tempted to make a proper post with it.
    Much better than the ECM release - at least to my ears.

    Only 23 days later Schlippenbach recorded his LP "The Living Music".
    Except Paker and Bailey the line-up was the same as for this broadcast. The actual LP "The Living Music" might be one of the most often re-issued recordings of Free Jazz.
    First there was an edition on A.v.Schlippenbach's 'Quasar' imprint. Than the more widely distributed FMP 0100. A CD on John Corbett's Unheard Music Series. And finally a re-release on LP through Cien Fuegos in 2013.

    Walter Zimmermann (born Schwabach, Germany, April 15, 1949) is a German composer associated with the Cologne School.

    Zimmermann studied composition in Germany with Werner Heider and Mauricio Kagel, the theory of musical intelligence at the Institute of Sonology in Utrecht (now located in The Hague), and computer music at Colgate University in New York.

    Zimmerman's works are infused by a personal adaptation of minimal technique. Whereas many early American minimalist composers were influenced in their works by rock, jazz, and world musics, Zimmermann has drawn a great deal of inspiration from his Franconian heritage. A number of his works, particularly his groups of pieces known as Lokale Musik, use the traditional music of this area as source material. These works frequently begin with melodic material derived from Franconian folk songs, which are rearranged and transformed in novel ways.

    In 1976, Zimmermann published a collection of interviews with American musicians and composers entitled Desert Plants: Conversations With 23 American Musicians. (source: Wikipedia)
    See also his own webside - recommended

    If you like this music I urge you to buy CDs from him. Especially a new recording on Mode Records were parts of this LP are presented in new interpretations. Very fine version of "10 Fränkische Tänze" with two string quartets. One playing the composition presented here plus a quartet playing a drone.
    Also another recent release on Maria de Alvears label Worl-Edition which has four works with greater ensembles/orchestra.

    Lokale Musik - local music.
    A kind of anti-"world-music" but sublimated, substituted, transformed and "transcended" as Walter Zimmermann has put it in the description of the four parts from "Leichte Tänze" (airy dances but also "easy").

    Some rough translations/explanations by the custodian of the fountain :

    Kärwamelodien - "Kärwa" means in franconian dialect church anniversary but also country/parish fair.

    Wolkenorte - "Wolken" means clouds and "Orte" means place/location/site/scene/lieu.

    Riuti: hard to translate - refers to the landscapes of wine cultivation.

    Wüstungen und Rodungen - also hard to explain (for me) - a "Wüstung" refers to a settlement or an agraic area which was abandoned before the modern times (ca.16th century), but is still remembered in field-names, old charters/documents, in local oral tradition/lore.

    "Rodungen" connotes to the clearing/uprooting of an area for farming purposes.
    The word "Rodung" is also related to the term "ausrotten" - to extirpate or to eradicate.

    Keuper: shell limestone - a geological formation and a form of soil which is characteristic for the franconian wine district.

    Ländler: a slow dance in the beat of 3/4.

    Phran + Topar: no clue at all on my side...

    Streichglasspiel - an instrument made of glass which is (gently) bowed (also with the fingers).

    Stille Tänze - silent dance(s).

    Namenlose Zwiefache: "Namenlos" means simply nameless and "Zwiefache" is a fast south-german folk dance which alternates constantly between a spinning/rotating movement and a waltz-like dance.

    And finally - "Der Tanz und der Schmerz" - dance and pain/sorrow.

    Lokale Music is a landmark, not only as a remarkable body of music, but as a model of a composing as a project that connects the musical to the historical, ethnological, social and psychological, and one in which these connections are never musically trivial.

  • One that nearly got away which is well worth hearing.  A cassette recording of a radio broadcast of indeterminate date given to me by the good Mr Greenaway back in the 90s sometime.  I can't trace Maria Stanger by google so it's possible I've spelled her name wrong.  Anyway it's all good stuff.

    This concert in northern Germany happened more than one year after "Moods" (on Enja) was recorded.
    The line-up is quite similar as for this concert - only Manfrd Schoof plays for Terumasa Hino and <jimmy Woode for Cameron Brown.
    All songs are also on the LP/CD - I recommend to buy the CD/LP if you do not have it yet.
    For me it's a masterpiece.
    You can listen to both recordings - a rare chance for examining the differences and similarities...
