Music of Johann Kaspar Mertz  

itunes link

Mertz:  Biedermeier Romanticism includes a real understanding of nature (beyond good and evil).  Mertz gets this, as does Adalbert Stifter.  The discussions of German Romanticism could all benefit from a great deal more attention to Stifter.  Stifter's *Granite*, suffices.  A naughty boy gets taken on a long walk with his grandfather, who tells the boy a story about the plaugue in the mountainous region of Bohemia.  Place names derive from plague time, yet the people have forgotten, no longer thinking about the meaning behind the names.  Mertz gets this, as does the Schubert of Die Winterreise.  Mertz starts on the path toward Mahler, just as Stifter paves the way for Nietzsche.  (Nietzsche loved Stifter.)

Soundspells Productions

Guitar Music of Meyer Kupferman, vol.1
William Anderson, guitar solo, and with Oren Fader, guitar and Joan Forsyth, piano

"Anderson's playing is of a very high order of dexterity, virtuosity, and brilliance, and is indicative of the tremendous advances made in guitar technique over the past four decades..... Though Kupferman does not play guitar, his compositions over many years display a deep understanding of the instrument's range, potential, and tonal colors. At the same time he is always pushing the performer and the instrument to the limits of possibility, and he takes it a million miles from the pleasant Spanish strumming that has persisted well into this century...For Kupferman it is an instrument that can take its place in music of our time and should be released from that image of pleaseant background music." - David Denton, Fanfare
