Chilly Gonzales
Solo Piano II

Chilly Gonzales takes a seat at the keyboard once more. The follow-up to 2004’s Solo Piano is another collection of lush lounge compositions that blur the lines between classical and pop. There’s plenty of Debussy, Schubert and Satie in here, but there’s also the melodic nouse one would expect from Drake’s go-to pianist. Solo Piano II is a lovely thing - let’s hope we don’t have to wait another eight years for the next instalment.

The Cinematic Orchestra
The Cinematic Orchestra presents In Motion #1

Here we find The Cinematic Orchestra making another LP of nice-ass music for Ninja Tune. The trick of In Motion #1 is that this time they’ve got some third-party composers to come along for the ride. With help from Dorian Concept, Tom Chant, Grey Reverend and Austin Peralta, The Cine Orc here present recordings of scores they made for some avant-garde films that premiered back in 2011. It’s all very cinematic and that.

Rachel's
Selenography

Selenography (the study of the moon's surface since you ask) was the fourth album by Louisville chamber/neo-classical collective Rachel's. It is another stunning statement from the band incorporating samples and electronics into their ever evolving sound which also takes in post-rock and modern composition. Stunning, thought provoking music. 

Rachel's
The Sea and The Bells

The Sea and The Bells was Rachel's third album and contains less of the pure chamber music beauty of its predecessor Music For Egon Shiele and more of an experimental post-rock sound that saw the trio incorporate drums, bass and guitar for the first time. It's a fascinating, sometimes impenetrable listen that helps pave the way for the modern neo-classical, post minimalism movement.

Balmorhea
All is Wild, All is Silent

Balmorhea - a band who need to be careful about how many ‘h’s they spell their name with - drop their third LP via Western Vinyl (Oren Ambarchi, Here We Go Magic). On All Is Wild, All Is Silent the Texan duo present another stirring set of instrumental indie soundscapes. The tracks here blend the countryisms of Cassadaga-era Bright Eyes, Wilco’s expansive vistas and a little ambient classical composition. It’s a highly emotive brew.

Lanterns On The Lake
Gracious Tide, Take Me Home

Gracious Tide, Take Me Home was the debut album from North-East coast dwelling five piece Lanterns on the Lake. Theirs is a sound in which, rather like the work of the Fence Collective, you can hear the sea but it is a much more widescreen sound with heavy nods to Mazzy Star and Sigur Ros. Emotional windswept post rock with a distinctive folky edge.

Max Richter
Infra

Infra is the third of Max Richter’s albums to receive the honour of a release by the extremely legitimate Deutsche Grammophon label. Originally released by Fat Cat in 2010, Infra is an evolution of a ballet accompaniment piece about the 7/7 London bombings, and consequently has a fairly potent emotional core. Plenty to feel here in these spiralling arrangements.

Max Richter
Songs From Before

Max Richter does his Max Richter thing on 2006’s Songs From Before. Aided by some cello and bass, Richter tinkles ivories, mixes and produces on this record to end up with a dozen pleasant contemporary classical vignettes. That voice you hear cropping up from time to time on Songs From Before is Robert Wyatt, by the way - he reads extracts from various Haruki Murakami books throughout the album.

Matt Elliott
Howling Songs

Howling Songs was the third of Matt Elliott's 'songs' trilogy and further proof that if you want it darker then Matt is your man. The album continues his career progression since his days as drum 'n' bass 'n' noise expert Third Eye Foundation of making slow burning acoustic based ballads with a strong European flavour. Deep thinking music for dark nights of the soul.

Peter Broderick
Docile

Docile is a sweet and simple collection of solo piano pieces, charmingly minimal and melodic. Peter Broderick apparently recorded the whole set in one evening, and the immediacy and clarity of the moment has carried through into the recordings. First released in 2008, Docile is now reissued by Hush Records.

The Cinematic Orchestra
Live At The Royal Albert Hall

A bit of in concert nicey-nice from The Cinematic Orchestra here. The band’s baroque electronica translates well to the grand surroundings of London’s Royal Albert Hall. This being the venue where they do the Proms it’s no surprise to find out that The Cinematic Orchestra bussed in a 24-piece orchestra for this 2007 gig. Live At The Royal Albert Hall also features guest turns from Grey Reverend, Heidi Vogel and Lou Rhodes.

Eluvium
Copia

One of the finest artists in the neo-classical genre is of course Richard Clayderman...no sorry Eluvium. Read the review for the full office misunderstanding that seems barely plausible with music of such beauty. Eluvium has made lots of gorgeous records but Copia is possibly one of the best, broadening his brush strokes to include strings, brass and of course piano. Now remastered onto 2LP by Temporary Residence.

Rachel's
Music For Egon Schiele

Music For Egon Schiele, the second LP from the influential chamber music group Rachel’s, was first released in 1996 on Quarterstick Records. This set was conceived to score a play about the famous painter, and as such there is a fitting classical stateliness to these compositions. Brahms and Ravel are brought to mind across Music For Egon Schiele.
