    The Club Album Live From Yellow Lounge

    In May of 2015, violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter gave a truly unique concert: rather than standing on stage in one of the world's renowned well-tempered grand concert halls, she spent two evenings playing in a tiny graffiti-scrawled nightclub in Berlin. Recorded in front of a standing-room only audience, this new 2-LP release includes popular works by Bach, Copland, Gershwin, Tchaikovsky, Vivaldi and many more. Mutter is joined by Mahan Esfahani, Lambert Orkis and the Mutter Virtuosi

    Dvorak: Violin Concerto

    In a stunning recording career of over 35 years, Anne-Sophie Mutter has sold upwards of 10 million total albums.


    Renowned for her technical facility and limitless range of expressive colours, Mutter is the undisputed "Queen of the Violin" (Times of London) - a musical
    legend of our time.


    It is no exaggeration to call this recording an historic venture: in June, Mutter and the Berliner Philharmoniker, whose deep and lasting artistic relationship
    was forged in the 1970s, came together at the Berlin Philharmonie, to make their first studio album in almost 30 years.


    Here, she records Dvorák's Violin Concerto - the last of the great Romantic violin concertos not yet in her discography.


    Anne-Sophie Mutter has chosen to pair Dvorák's Violin Concerto with his fiery Mazurek Op. 49, and the Romance in F minor for violin and orchestra Op.
    11. The album also includes Dvorák's irresistible Humoresque, presented in its popular arrangement for violin and piano by Fritz Kreisler.


    All works on this recording exemplify the vivid colour, touching melancholy and folkloric tunefulness that are trademarks of Dvorák's style.

    1. Allegro ma non troppo - Quasi moderato
    2. Adagio, ma non troppo
    3. Finale (Allegro giocoso, ma non troppo)
    4. Romance In F Minor, Op.11
    5. Mazurek, Op.49
    6. Humoresque, Op.101, No.7

    Berg: Violin Concerto / Rihm: Time Chant

    Violinist Anne-Sophie Mutter is here at her commanding, warm-toned best! Sensitive, sensuous, soulful and soul-baring, ravishing and ravaged, the music enters your living-room with a vividness you may find overpowering. Mutter and Deutsche Grammophon's commitment to new repertoire is in itself cause for celebration. Mutter performs with conductor James Levine and the Chicago Symphony Orchestra.

    Beethoven Violin Concerto

Supported early in her career by Herbert von Karajan, he invited her to play with the Berlin Philharmonic when she was just 13 and she has built a strong reputation for championing contemporary music throughout her career. She has won the Grammy Award for Best Chamber Music Performance and the Grammy Award for Best Instrumental Soloist Performance among many other awards.

    Mendelssohn & Bruch Violin Concertos

    Karajan took the young Anne-Sophie Mutter under his wing in the early 1980s and together they produced the of
    Mendelssohn's and Bruch's famous violin concertos. Mutter said: "Karajan taught me to find the common thread
    that runs through a score, to think the music through to its logical conclusion not simply to juxtapose notes in long
    overarching paragraphs but to place them in the service of the musical idea. This is something that has lodged in
    my memory with particular force.

    Bound For Glory

    Previously unreleased early broadcast featuring rare versions of many early Springsteen hits!


    April 1973 from The Main Point, Bryn Mawr, Philadelphia


    By mid 1972 the rock landscape was looking decidedly dull. The search for a new Beatles or a new Dylan to re-unite the Woodstock generation and their younger siblings had come to nothing and the natives were getting restless. So when word began to filter through of new-kid-on-the-block Bruce Springsteen breaking out of home city Asbury Park, New Jersey, and playing shows nationwide that reconfirmed audiences faith in the redemptive power of rock n roll, hope began to restore. Bruce had signed a recording deal with Columbia in mid-72 and had been working on his debut record since. Greetings From Asbury Park saw the light of day in early 73, and within the week Springsteen, with a little help from three of the soon to be named East Street Band, were performing their first ever radio broadcast, aired on Boston's WBCN FM. A quite remarkable performance ensued with Bruce and the boys in excellent humour and fine form as they played a terrific set, although remarkably including just one cut from Greetings. The show was an intimate affair without an audience but gave listeners their first glimpse into Springsteen's infectious personality, enormous enthusiasm and unique sense of humour. It also drove home the message that here was an artist who could prove to be the new messiah, with songs that quite beggared belief. The second show featured on this LP is Bruce's very first broadcast from the Main Point venue in Bryn Mawr, just outside Philadelphia - the venue at which Bruce's most prestigious and highly regarded broadcast was made, the astonishing 1975 gig that has also recently been released. This April 1973 set differs widely from the January 73 show as the full band (drummer Vini Lopez joins proceedings) rock out, and comparisons with the largely acoustic Boston broadcast remain fascinating. That was pretty good, Bruce is heard to mutter as the final track of this broadcast draws to a close - providing the perfect understatement for the burgeoning talent heard maturing in these two broadcasts, and equally for the shows themselves, as just one listen to this remarkable LP will testify.

    Luciferian Towers

    Pressed On 180-Gram Vinyl


    Housed In A Gatefold Jacket With Printed Inner Sleeve


    Includes 24 x 24 Poster


    this long-playing record, a thing we made in the midst of communal mess, raising dogs and children. eyes up and filled with dreadful joy - we aimed for wrong notes that explode, a quiet muttering amplified heavenward. we recorded it all in a burning motorboat.


    1. UNDOING A LUCIFERIAN TOWERS - look at that fucking skyline! big lazy money writ in dull marble obelisks! imagine all those buildings much later on, hollowed out and stripped bare of wires and glass, listen - the wind is whistling through all 3,000 of its burning window-holes!


    2. BOSSES HANG - labor, alienated from the wealth it creates, so that holy cow, most of us live precariously! kicking at it, but barely hanging on! also - the proud illuminations of our shortened lives! also - more of us than them!


    3. FAM / FAMINE - how they kill us = absentee landlord, burning high-rise. the loud panics of child-policemen and their exploding trigger-hands. neglect, cancer maps, drone strike, famine.


    4. ANTHEM FOR NO STATE - kanada, emptied of its minerals and dirty oil. emptied of its trees and water. a crippled thing, drowning in a puddle, covered in ants. the ocean doesn't give a shit because it knows it's dying too.


    finally and in conclusion;

    the "luciferian towers" L.P. was informed by the following grand demands:

    + an end to foreign invasions

    + an end to borders

    + the total dismantling of the prison-industrial complex

    + healthcare, housing, food and water acknowledged as an inalienable human right

    + the expert fuckers who broke this world never get to speak again


    much love to all the other lost and wondering ones,

    Souvenir Part 1

    The ensemble TrondheimSolistene was founded in 1988 by Bjarne Fiskum, and was for many years an arena for professional concert training for string-players at the Conservatory in Trondheim. As a result of many concerts throughout Europe as well as concert tours to the United States, Japan and Brazil, the TrondheimSolistene has grown to be an ensemble of international renown, receiving much critical acclaim and attracting attention with its combination of high standards, youthful vigor and lively enthusiasm for the music.


    New collaborations have pleased both performers and audiences alike, and the orchestra has been noted for its considerable musical versatility, performing music from the baroque and romantic repertoires as well as tango, jazz, rock and contemporary music. The ensemble is an important advocate of Norwegian music, has commissioned and given premiers of several works and invariably includes Norwegian works in its concert tour programs. TrondheimSolistenes discography includes over twenty recordings. Øyvind Gimse was appointed artistic director of TrondheimSolistene in 2002, continuing the ensembles broad programming profile and musical versatility. TrondheimSolistene collaborates regularly with soloists such as Leif Ove Andsnes, Martin Fröst, Joshua Bell, Ole Edvard Antonsen, Arve Tellefsen and Anne-Sophie Mutter.


    Through its dynamic co-operation TrondheimSolistene (the Trondheim Soloists) and 2L has always stretched the boundaries of what is possible to convey to the listener, aiming for the ultimate recorded listening experience. With the Serenade the team has taken things one step further with the TrondheimSolistene truly justifying their name. By placing each individual next to someone from a different voice rather than sitting in conventional sections we are working at the very outer limits of what is possible and creating chamber music at the highest level - Øyvind Gimse, 2012.


    2L allocated two weeks in 2011 to record this new album. Artistic director Øyvind Gimse and his associate Geir Inge Lotsberg initially chose two pieces that represent, in their estimation, the most beautiful music ever composed for the string orchestra: Tchaikovsky's Souvenir de Florence and his Serenade for Strings. Aiming for a 90 minute program left 30 more minutes to record. So the orchestra and 2L logged on to Facebook and asked the listeners worldwide what they'd like to hear. And the audience responded: Nielsen's Suite Opus 1. A little gem that would exploit the Trondheim Soloists' singular way with Nordic repertoire.


    Inspired by Morten Lindberg's extensive work with choral music, the Tchaikovsky's Serenade was recorded with the ensemble placed in mixed voices, meaning no one is sitting beside anyone playing the same part, creating a totally new soundscape to the music. Carl Nielsen's Suite opus 1 is recorded in a more traditional way in these sessions.
