Johnny Windhurst (trumpet)

Following on from the pioneering Dick Cathcart CD (RTR 4308), Retrospective presents more buried jazz treasure with The Imaginative Johnny Windhurst. Of the label’s many rewarding Digby Fairweather collaborations, this one performs the greatest service in throwing the spotlight on a relatively little-known musician of unsurpassed brilliance, yet who seldom visited the recording studio. New York-born Johnny Windhurst (1926-1981) was playing alongside Sidney Bechet as a teenager, apparently destined for jazz immortality, and he was among the most highly regarded of the Eddie Condon ‘school’, one whose skill and imagination was spoken of with awe by fellow musicians. Yet somehow his career didn’t take off and he eventually opted to play in local obscurity. This collection of his rare studio recordings, plus a few spectacular live concert broadcasts, is a revelation, demonstrating the artistry of a true jazz master. The release happily joins a string of Retrospectives (now 16-strong!) spotlighting the trumpet greats of jazz: Humphrey Lyttelton (RTS 4108), Louis Armstrong (RTR 4129), Bunny Berigan (RTR 4139), Nat Gonella (RTR 4146), Bix Beiderbecke (RTS 4154), Billy Butterfield (RTR 4203), Bobby Hackett (RTR 4208), Don Goldie (RTR 4216), Red Nichols (RTS 4227), Henry Red Allen (RTS 4248), Muggsy Spanier (RTS 4254), Wingy Manone (RTS 4267), Harry Sweets Edison (RTS 4271), Harry James (RTS 4281) and Dick Cathcart (RTR 4308).

Always a great favourite, especially in the UK, the inimitable Frank Crumit (1889-1943) performs all his best-loved comic songs on one well-filled CD. A jocular and inventive singer and writer of comic novelties, the American Crumit was a leading figure in stage, radio and recorded entertainment in the 20s and 30s. Especially popular for his sprightly and humorous renderings, he had a pleasant, warm-hearted nature that came through on his recordings, where his friendly voice and lively accompaniments to catchy tunes have given a lasting quality. Surprisingly, he was even more famous in Britain than in his native USA. He is credited with 31 ‘chart hits’ from 1920 to 1929. Retrospective’s A Gay Caballero presents the finest single CD selection of Crumit’s happy material available. All his best-known numbers are here. Comic classics such as A Gay Caballero (in the technically superior 1934 version), The Song Of The Prune and The Insurance Salesman still raise a smile, and of course there’s his most famous epic, Abdul Abulbul Amir. He had a winning way too with many of the Charlestonflavoured numbers of the day – Crazy Words, Crazy Tune, Ukulele Lady etc. – and even standards like Mountain Greenery or ’S Wonderful emerge fresh as paint. There is also a charming duet with his wife Julia Sanderson, Would You Like To Take A Walk?, performing as “The Singing Sweethearts”.

Music In Germany From Schütz To Bach

Music In Germany From Schütz To Bach


8 CD + Book

After exploring the evolution of Italian and French music in the seventeenth century, Jérôme Lejeune devotes a new volume in his History of Early Music to Germany. During this century in which the Lutheran musical tradition developed further, Germany lived through a particularly enthralling period, bringing the musical world a highly original language, but also assimilating Italian and French models with talent and imagination; all of this unquestionably prepared the way that leads to Johann Sebastian Bach.

St Salvator's Chapel Choir, Tom Wilkinson

For Martin Luther, the value of music was second only to that of theology. He recognised the immense power of music: for him, it was both a sublime medium for worship and a powerful propaganda tool.

However, the inspiration demonstrated by Lutheran composers in the 16th and 17th centuries might have exceeded even Luther's expectations. A sense of communicative urgency unites all the composers represented on this CD, from Luther's associate Johann Walter to the late-17th-century masters Dietrich Buxtehude and his pupil Nicolaus Bruhns.

The rise in vocal and instrumental virtuosity in this period, alongside a strong development of expressive power, makes it a treasure trove for music lovers. Nowhere is this more evident than in Lutheran music for Lent, Passiontide and Easter.

The centrality of Christ's crucifixion to Luther's theology is palpable in this music, which takes the listener from the depths of despair to passionate joy.

This programme explores that vast twentieth-century secular English choral repertoire which goes under the generic title ‘partsongs’. It is an extraordinarily rich repertoire to which almost all the famous composers contributed. Buried amongst vast quantities of slightly twee pastoralism – the much-derided “cow-pat” school – are to be found many settings of glorious poetry, forming a corpus of sublime twentieth-century madrigals at least as fine as their famous renaissance forebears. However, this programme has another particular theme: how poets and composers reflect upon the natural world as a metaphor for our own emotional experience. At the heart of this programme is the complex relationship between man and nature, the bitter-sweetness of a radiant and beautiful dawn creating the same unbearable sadness of a ravishing song, and both with intimations of mortality.

Cantata BWV42 'Am Abend aber desselbigen Sabbats': Sinfonia

Sinfonia: Cantata BWV174


Under the baton of Reinhard Goebel, the Berlin Barock Solisten releases a spectacular new recording of one of the Baroque era’s most celebrated masterpieces.

Thirty years after Goebel’s first reference recording of the Brandenburg Concertos, maestro Goebel and the Berlin Barock Solisten perform the Brandenburgs not only with consummate technique but with thrilling verve, supreme sensitivity and a wealth of dynamic contrasts. Goebel has also incorporated the latest findings of musical scholarship in his recording, for example regarding the choice of instruments.

Rounding off the recording are the Sinfonias from the Cantatas “Ich liebe den Höchsten von ganzem Gemüte” and “Am Abend aber desselbigen Sabbats”, both of which relate musically to the Brandenburg Concertos.
