On 'Reincarnation' Baltimore vibesman Warren Wolf reveals an entirely different side to his multi-faceted talents, allowing him to indulge his love for the R&B and soul hits that served as the soundtrack to his formative years in the 1990s. It's also a celebration of a new lease on life, a happiness and contentment that he's discovered through a new marriage and his five beloved children.

For the second volume in his Birmingham Schubert symphony cycle, Edward Gardner turns to the Second and Sixth Symphonies. Composed between December 1814 and March 1815, the Second Symphony is not only a response by Schubert to the works of Beethoven, and especially the Prometheus Overture, but also strives to push the conventional symphonic boundaries, most notably in the extended exposition of the first movement. Completed in February 1818, the Sixth Symphony was the first to be titled "Große Sinfonie" (grand symphony) by Schubert, a mark of his growing confidence in his work in the symphonic idiom. The two Overtures were composed at the same time as the Sixth Symphony, and are clearly modelled on the overtures of Rossini, whose music was all the rage in Vienna at that time.

The plectrum lute duo was one of the most popular ensembles for professional instrumentalists in late 15th-century Western Europe. This recording presents for the first time the bulk of a surviving repertoire that can arguably be considered for the lute duo, performed on two equal plectrum lutes or with a combination of lute and gittern - a smaller member of the lute family. The album, inspired by the Ferrarese virtuoso Pietrobono dal Chitarino (c. 1417–1497), acclaimed in his lifetime as ‘the foremost lutenist in the world’, includes the earliest printed lute duos by sco Spinacino and Joan Ambrosio Dalza and the two-voice instrumental works by Johannes Tinctoris. The often highly ornamented instrumental duos are mostly reworkings of songs, some of which are given here in a performance with the singer Grace Newcombe to provide the context for the lute arrangements that follow.

Here is a constellation of compositions that pierces the sky and seems to tell the two musicians that this moment belongs only to them. We can feel in the high notes of French pianist Robert Kaddouch and the deep bass of American Gary Peacock the High Line on which Robert has built its harmonic structure: an unstable equilibrium where musicians, like tightrope walkers, increasingly move away from their comfort zone towards a point where only the fall becomes possible, or a spark of genius climbing even higher towards a new High Line.

Almost forty years separate Verklärte Nacht from the Violin Concerto – the former still influenced by the idiom of Brahms and Wagner, the latter deriving from the richness of that later period when Schoenberg managed to combine a multiplicity of approaches within his twelve-note system. Between post-Romantic twilight and ‘classical’ rigour, Isabelle Faust and her most faithful partners offer us an extraordinarily lively interpretation of some of the most remarkable pages in twentieth-century musical literature.

When Archbishop Desmond Tutu said “I am because we are”, he was encapsulating the ethos of the South African philosophy, “Ubuntu”, a word which, roughly translated, means “human kindness”. It is this spirit of interconnectedness that inspires jazz artist Gert Zimanowski in his daily life, in his composition, his lyrics, and the way he and his fellow musicians collaborated on this recording. The themes he treats in his lyrics, of equality and justice, are also achieved musically, through a balanced interchange among the fantastic ensemble members that came together for this album. It is music that speaks to the strength of solidarity and hope.

The soundtrack for the 1984 blockbuster comedy Ghostbusters, which starred Bill Murray, Dan Aykroyd, and Harold Ramis as a New York-based team of spook exterminators, follows the most common soundtrack formula for summer blockbuster hits: throw on a bunch of pop songs that were heard in the movie only for a few seconds, combine them with a couple of excerpts from the original score, and – voila! – you have a soundtrack album that makes for a very disjointed, schizophrenic listen, and does very little to conjure memories of the film.

With each release since the mid-'90s, Anathema have pushed their boundaries to the breaking point, creating a prog pop sound of their own. After the groundbreaking – and universally celebrated – "Weather Systems" in 2012, it was fair to wonder just where else they could go. That question is answered with "Distant Satellites".

To fully indulge in Dillon’s fragile second album is to completely submit yourself to, as the title intimates, "The Unknown". From the foreboding bassline and perturbing white noise of the titular opener until the album’s close, "The Unknown" feels like uncharted territory. Its mysterious splendor is initially concealed beneath a cold exterior like a windswept moor hidden under a blanket of mist. Only with time and patience will its true beauty emerge. On Dillon’s critically lauded 2011 debut album "This Silence Kills", the Brazilian songwriter gracefully echoed the “chanson-pop” melodies of Lykke Li and Emiliana Torrini. Yet "The Unknown" reveals that Dillon has undergone a significant musical transformation. Unlike her debut, the silence no longer kills but instead breaths life into The Unknown’s twelve astonishing tracks.

Doctor John's second solo piano album finds him combining country, blues, and New Orleans standards with originals, half of them instrumentals, and half of them containing vocals that sound like they were recorded off the piano microphone. This is not a high-tech recording, by any means, but in its unadorned way it does capture the flavor of Doctor John as directly as any record he's made.
