From ECM: “ECM NEW Series”

New from ECM


Arvo Pärt
The Symphonies

NFM Wrocław Philharmonic
Tõnu Kaljuste, conductor

Forty-five years separate Arvo Pärt’s four symphonies, and each one, as the great Estonian composer has noted, is a world unto itself. Newly recorded and heard in chronological order, they also tell us much about Pärt’s musical and spiritual journey, and the very different ways in which he has exercised his craft – from his early days as a student in 1963 to 2008, by which time he was the world’s most widely-performed contemporary composer.

Ravel / Franck / Ligeti / Messiaen
Duo Gazzana

György Ligeti Duo (1946) / César Franck A major Sonata (1886)
Maurice Ravel Sonate posthume (1897) / Olivier Messiaen Thème et variations (1932)

Natascia Gazzana violin | Raffaella Gazzana piano

A sense of discovery is a key theme in the third ECM recital of sisters Natascia and Raffaella Gazzana. Alongside a landscape of French music for violin and piano, drawing on a multiplicity of inspirations, is a premiere recording of György Ligeti’s Duo.

Alexander Knaifel

Oleg Malov piano | Tatiana Melentieva soprano | Piotr Migunov bass
Lege Artis Choir conducted by Boris Abalian

The fourth New Series album from the St Petersburg-based composer Alexander Knaifel may be his most wide-ranging to date, voyaging from the sacred to the secular and back again via several inspired detours. Luminously quiet, and quietly magical.

Pre-orders are available at ECM.

ECM might just be the finest recording company in the world.
