    From this year's Wittener Tage für neue Kammermusik, this is one of the more impressive pieces, inspired by the enormous fresco of 'Apollo and the Continents' in Würzburg by Giovanni Battista Tiepolo.

    The first two pieces - Africa and Asia - show Dufourt's spectral background, and could be described as music for large spaces, or installations. The last two - Europe and America - are much more energetic and remind me at times of the large group pieces by Braxton - hence the post here. The recording from WDR3 is fine, although the announcer did decide to talk over the first few seconds of 'America'.

    I was in Brazil for a few weeks recently, and came across these two live recordings of the Anthony Braxton Quartet (from 2014) and Roscoe Mitchell solo (from 2013), from the Ao Vivo Jazz na Fabrica  festival in Sao Paulo.

    They're both excellent, and show both musicians at the top of their game, so I can strongly recommend buying these. No rips here, obviously, but there are some samples on the SESC web page, here.

    Here's one I keep coming back to regularly. Beautifully recorded by Dutch radio, this is an excerpt of their performance at the NSJF in Scheweningen in 1990. I went to see them in 1987 and I recall they were playing up on the roof of the main concert building in Scheweningen which is just outside The Hague. I'm not sure whether this is the first set or whether it is a cut and paste of their full performance. There is a longer audience tape of the full one, but of lower audio quality. So I'm sticking with this one instead, even if shorter.

    We get to hear first the serene "Prayer for Jimbo Kwesi" which was out on "The Third Decade" album. Then follows an improvisational passage, featuring Roscoe Mitchell among other exciting happenings, and after that it segues into the stately "Song for Atala" which was on their "Dreaming of the Masters", showing that the AEC can play 'em as straight as anybody. The info file that came with this set lists more than what you actually get to hear here.

    The line-up is the usual quintet which you can see above. So what else to say but enjoy the company of the masters! Just possibly my fave ensemble of all and anytime!

    This wonderful document of unrecorded (as far as I know) quartet was shared on DIME by Owombat back in 2009, and later probably here in Contributions section, or maybe somewhere else. I did kind of remastering and spliced together original three parts of each set, as they were continuous performancces. It took four stages of equalization to make sound somehow balanced, although saxophone is still loudest instrument. Enjoy.

    Florian Pellissier en direct du New Morning
    Un pied dans le New York du début des 60’s, l’autre résolument ancré
    dans la scène jazz parisienne actuelle…Voilà pour l’esprit qui anime le Florian Pellissier Quintet, un groupe actif depuis 11 ans et qui présentera ce soir son troisième album, "Cap de Bonne Esperance" au New Morning...Un concert à suivre en simultané dans Jazzlive

    Pianiste hyper-actif qu'on retrouve avec des projets aussi variés que Setanta, Guts, Camarao ou Leron Thomas, Florian Pellissier revient avec le projet qui lui tient à cœur, son quintet de jazz.
    Après le succès critique de son deuxième album « Biches bleues», Florian Pellissier a décidé d'enchainer rapidement avec un nouvel opus. L'équipe de haut vol n'a pas changé, mais le style s'est affirmé, et ce « cap de Bonne esperance » devrait un peu plus imposer Florian Pellissier sur la scène jazz française.
    == Line up ==
    Florian Pellissier (Piano), Yoni Zelnik (Contrebasse), David Georgelet (Batterie), Christophe Panzani (Saxophone), Yoann Loustalot (Trompette)

    Here's a short recording by Theo Loevendie's Consort from Antibes previously offered in some comments or in the contributions section.

    It was recorded the same year as the Blue Notes (in Antibes) after they left South Africa.
    From both groups there was a french TV footage but apparently it has been deleted from youtube.
     Which may not have a whole lot to do with this recording but it seemed like a good place to start....

    Rădulescu's fourth quartet is one of the more radical spectral pieces; it's for nine string quartets, one of which plays live, with the remaining quartets played back from recordings from different locations in the hall. The idea is to explore the harmonic spectrum, and to allow the audience to experience new spectra as the sounds criss-cross, interact and interfere.

    The extent to which this is achieved is debatable, but a performance is undoubtedly an enthralling experience. A recording can only hint at this, but here is a recording from Colognes' Acht Brücken festival by the Asasello Quartet, from earlier this month.

    Horațiu Rădulescu:

    infinite to be cannot be infinite, infinite anti-be could be infinite (infinit a fi nu poate fi infinit) op. 33 (1976; rev. 1987) - fourth string quartet for nine string quartets

    I wasn't familiar with John Zorn's string quartets before listening to this recording, but on the strength of this, I'll be looking for more. The Remedy of Fortune is the strongest piece, and contains multiple quotes from other quartets I know and play, including the Beethoven's Grosse Fuge.

    This concert also includes performances of both the early and late versions of Boulez's Livre pour Quatuor; beautiful serial works that condense an entire narrative into small gestures.

    John Zorn: The Alchemist
