Pat Metheny »Four Paths Of Light, Part 2« out Feb 12th!

On February 12th, Pat Metheny shares with us a second excerpt of his upcoming album »Road To The Sun«. It's the second part of the four-movement solo guitar suite »Four Paths Of Light«.

The composition by Metheny is performed by Grammy-winner Jason Vieaux who has been described as “perhaps the most precise and soulful classical guitarist of his generation” by NPR. Says Vieaux “It was kind of a dream of mine to work with Pat. Even though I know so many of [his] improvised solos by heart, the compositional aspect of his music was always the biggest factor. This work is a particularly special occasion to me. Whenever an artist of Pat’s significance writes not only a substantial work but a piece that requires real virtuosity to perform it, with his musical imprint all over it, it’s a big moment for classical guitar. I think this work really has a long life in the repertoire.”

Metheny adds “Although this piece was written as an entirely through-composed work, specifically with Jason in mind, it is interesting for me to think of the life that this suite might have in years ahead in the broader context beyond. I have followed the classical guitar world with interest, and from the first moment I heard Jason, he has been one of my favorite musicians. He stands as my favorite Bach interpreter on the guitar, and while he excels at playing passages that border on being technically impossible on the instrument, he also has the rare ability to make things that are simple have real meaning. His playing inspired me to write a piece that would hopefully challenge and inspire him in return. If a by-product of that is something that has a place in that repertoire going ahead, that would be fantastic.”

Label Look: How Modern Recordings Is Redefining Classical Music

In its current issue, the Billboard Magazine had a closer look at „How Modern Recordings Is Redefining Classical Music“ - speaking to Fred Casimir (EVP Global Repertoire & Marketing BMG) and Christian Kellersmann (Label Head here at Modern Recordings) about the background of the label, the artists, chart success and most importantly about what’s next.

Coming up in March is Pat Metheny’s album »Road To The Sun«. In this record, Metheny redefined „classical guitar literature and brought it to the next level“, says Fred Casimir in an interview with Billboard.

With »Road To The Sun« being a „jazz-classical crossover“, it fits the label’s approach of being ‚genre-open’: „It's more about the quality and the vision of the artist.“, says Kellersmann. Looking at the success of past releases, the Billboard feature closes by naming a few acts, that we will announce soon.

Thanks to Billboard for appreciating our work and the artists’ releases. Stay tuned for exciting new records and (if possible) live projects in 2021.

Francesco Tristano

Glad to share with you today the first remix of Kristjan Järvi’s recent album »Nordic Escapes«. The composer, pianist and producer Francesco Tristano reinterpreted »Nordic Maiden« and created his own Auricle Dub version – out now on all platforms. Get lost in these seductive house beats and let the groove go on forever! Listen here: https://KristjanJaervi.lnk.to/NordicMaidenAuricleDub

I first was made aware of Kristjan Järvi and his ground-breaking work with the Absolute ensemble through some players who were also my classmates at Juilliard.

When, in 2009, the album Absolute Zawinul came out, I knew KJ and I were definitely on the same wavelength.

In 2016, Kristjan conducted the world premiere of my piano concerto Island Nation in Leipzig. It was the first of many collaborations.

As our common hero Joe Zawinul famously stated: "African tribes - that's where it's all coming from." - It doesn't matter if we are talking about Bach, or Bartok, or Nordic Maiden.

In my remix I wanted to infuse a little dose of groove to Kristjan's beautiful melody. In memory of Joe Zawinul, and in honour of the African tribes.

The pre-sale for Pat Metheny's new album »Road To The Sun« starts today together with first the release of an excerpt of the same name, »Road To The Sun, Part 2«.

The upcoming album features two major new works: A four-movement solo guitar suite »Four Paths Of Light« - performed by Grammy-winner Jason Vieaux, described by NPR as “perhaps the most precise and soulful classical guitarist of his generation” - and the centerpiece of this landmark recording »Road To The Sun«, a six-movement piece for fellow Grammy-award winning Los Angeles Guitar Quartet LAGQ – Metheny describes them as “one of the best bands in the world”. In the end, »Road To The Sun« is nothing if not another truly great Pat Metheny record. It will rank alongside Secret Story, Bright Size Life, 80/81,One Quiet Night, Still Life (talking), Song X, and all the rest as being yet another unexpected and almost willfully inscrutable plot twist, inevitable to a genre with only one common element: Metheny himself.

Von der Haardt

Check out this benefit compilation featuring Pantha Du Prince and many other friends. A project by Von der Haardt with all proceeds donated to Doctors Without Borders!

It was during the first lockdown this idea was born. When the crisis hit us hard, concerts got canceled and venues had to close their doors. It was also the days, we started wallowing in self-pity, complaining about wearing masks and forgot about those that don’t have the privilege to be part of the so-called Western World. In societies that will survive this situation and leave no-one of theirs behind. But what about the ones beyond our boarders? They seem to be forgotten and only get mentioned when devastating events like Moria happen. But once over they are on their own again. The idea became a project and thanks to the generous support of our artists, their managers and labels we are now able to present a benefit compilation in support of @doctorswithoutborders.

BMG to launch new label Modern Recordings

BMG announced the launch of Modern Recordings, a label for new classical, jazz and electronic music, mostly instrumental but also extending to singer-songwriters.

The label – the first new imprint to be launched by BMG since its launch in 2008 – will be led by renowned Berlin-based music executive Christian Kellersmann, who will serve as Senior Vice President New Classics & Jazz.

Modern Recordings will capitalize on the growing international appetite, also driven by streaming, for new leftfield music arising out of the classical and jazz worlds.

The firsts artists signed to Modern Recordings include Scottish composer Craig Armstrong, producer Robot Koch, composer Meredi, and producer, composer and conceptual artist Hendrik Weber aka Pantha du Prince.
