Joep Beving (piano)

From our ongoing Global Classics Priority, Joep Beving, comes Solipsism – for the first time available on CD and vinyl!

His self-released debut album Solipsism has polled over 81 million streams on Spotify alone since its release in 2015, with the two lead tracks Sleeping Lotus and The Light She Brings already at 25m and 18m streams each!

Solipsism tracks feature in huge playlists, like 88 Keys, Calm Vides and Peaceful Piano (2.9 million playlist followers)

The digital release, which has been available on DG since Joep’s signing in January, has already amassed over 17k adjusted units!

Physical version – CD and Vinyl (limited edition) – is now slated for August

Joep’s music is extremely sync-friendly, please pitch this to your teams/contacts!

“Solipsism” is just me talking through my piano. To discover that millions of people are listening is wonderful – and pretty humbling at the same time.” – Joep Beving

“Solipsism” refers to the philosophical idea that reality only exists in one’s mind

Solipsism was recorded at home in the still of night. The album is filled with introspective and often filmic piano compositions. Beving’s sound could be described as the opposite to over-produced and complexly layered music styles. His ambition for Solipsism is to keep the music stripped back to its essence: simple sounds to express complex emotions.

VEIN

Those who appreciate jazz as a provocative, constantly questioning art form should hardly expect that a conventional band makeup such as this piano trio would completely detach itself from tradition. The common task is instead that the more formative the genetic reference, the more diverse the leeway for new. This is a belief that Vein has made its own, the lively and bold band construct from Switzerland around the brothers Michael Arbenz and Florian Arbenz and bassist Thomas Lähns, for which the restrictive term "piano trio" has long since become too small.

Because Vein has always been more. A sound surface for provocative color combinations, a testing laboratory of modern music, a vehicle for mutual inspiration, as impressively evidenced by a number of high-profile collaborations with prominent guest musicians such as Greg Osby and Glenn Ferris. The fact that especially classical music has played an increasingly important role in recent years for Michael, Florian and Thomas has been documented not the least by their recent CD "The Chamber Music Effect". The innovative trio goes even a step further with their current project. "VEIN Plays RAVEL" is dedicated exclusively to the compositions of the French composer Maurice Ravel.

It's all about points of contact between Ravel and VEIN, although both worked/work in completely different eras. When Michael Arbenz decided that the music revolutionary who died at the age of only 62 years in Paris in 1937, one of the most colorful figures of classical music, represents "the obvious choice” for VEIN, then there are several reasons for this. Ravel lived in a time in which representational tradition drifted unmistakably into abstract modernism. The three Swiss citizens imagine themselves to be in a similar situation and want to enter new territory everywhere with their music without disavowing the traditional values ​​of jazz. The parallels with Ravel are obvious. As one of the first of his craft, the composer made use of at various music styles such as the Baroque, Spanish music and even jazz that was just beginning to blossom. Vein is now turning the wheel further. The trio takes selected pieces by Ravel as a template to convert them into VEIN’s tonal language. With that, the three musicians revive the procedure of Ravel and compose pieces in the spirit of the great master one century later.

To this end, Vein uses different compositions by Maurice Ravel with different stylistic structures. The CD contains three pieces from the suite "Le Tombeau de Couperin" and the "Mouvement de Menuet" from the sonatina for piano, in which Ravel was referencing baroque music. In addition, there is "Blues" from the violin sonata and the "5 o'clock Foxtrot" from the opera "L'enfant et les sortilèges" with unmistakable touches of jazz and salon music of that era.

The "Bolero” is of course the centerpiece, one of the most iconic pieces of the 20th century, as controversial as revered until today. In Vein version, the trio is enlarged with a horn section that expresses the opulent orchestral aspect of this provocative work with impressive clarity. The Briton Andy Sheppard embeds his saxophone in the sound of the trio for the "Bolero" and the "Mouvement de Menuet" as a guest soloist. Thanks to his lyrical playing, Sheppard proves to be the ideal link between the hybrid worlds of Vein and Ravel.

Inspiration as creative source: Michael and Florian Arbenz and Thomas Lähns are only too glad to take up what Maurice Ravel established as a means to an end, namely to operate with different musical styles and to convert them into his musical world, because it corresponds exactly to their own philosophy. They add new elements such as grooves and improvisations and consequently create a sound that sounds like VEIN, but in which Ravel's spirit resonates in every phase.

Dvorak: Rusalka, Op. 114


Magdalena Polkowska (Rusalka), Tadeusz Szlenkier (Prince), Jacek Greszta (Witch)

Orchestra, Choir & Ballet of the Opera Nova in Bydgoszcz, Maciej Figas

Jaroslav Kvapil's libretto, based on Erben’s and Božena Němcová’s work, was written before he had any contact with the composer. The plot contains elements which also appear in The Little Mermaid by Hans Christian Andersen and in Undine by Friedrich de la Motte Fouqué and has been described as a "sad, modern fairy tale", in a similar vein to his previous play, Princessa Pampeliška. The libretto was completed by 1899, when Kvapil began looking for composers interested in setting his text. His composer friends were engaged with other works, but mentioned that Dvořák was looking for a project. The composer, always interested in Erben's stories, read the libretto and composed his opera quite rapidly, with the first draft begun on 22 April 1900 and completed by the end of November. Coming after his four symphonic poems inspired by the folk-ballads of Erben of 1896–97, Rusalka may be viewed as the culmination of Dvořák's exploration of a "wide variety of drama-creating musical techniques".
