Cuarteto Casals – Mozart: String Quartets Dedicated to Joseph Haydn [Extended Version] (2014)

Artist: Cuarteto Casals
Title Of Album: Mozart: String Quartets Dedicated to Joseph Haydn
Year Of Release: 2014
Label: Harmonia Mundi / HMC902186
Genre: Classical, Music, Chamber Music
Total Time: 1:33:44

At the height of the classical period Joseph Haydn was virtually the unsurpassed master of the symphony and string quartet. It is certainly true looking back but it was also clear then to those in the know. Mozart studied his music and with the customary brilliance of his mature period produced three quartets of his own, making use of the structural innovations, thematic fullness and developmental acuity that Haydn stood for, at the same time adding his own personal lucidity.

We can hear all three in a nicely done set by the Cuarteto Casals, Mozart String Quartets Dedicated to Joseph Haydn (Harmonia Mundi 2186D 2-CDs). The Casals outfit we’ve happily encountered before on these pages (Haydn and Schubert, see search box). They shine brightly whatever they take on, but have an especially nice way with the classical era.

So here we have three Mozart gems, Quartets No. 14, No. 16, and No. 19 «Dissonances». The open bars of the Dissonance Quartet are some of the most remarkable music of the era for out-stepping the conventional bonds of the time and prophetically looking forward to our own modernity. You might also say the same thing of Mozart’s «Musical Joke», but that is another story.

My only quibble is that Cuarteto Casals play down the dissonance contained in these few bars just a bit, so they seem a little less shocking to our ears. In any event the dissonance is resolved fairly quickly so Cuarteto Casals are perhaps being more faithful to the overall spirit of the music.

And the group makes up for it by splendid readings of all three quartets. This is supremely lively part writing in keeping with Haydn as Mozart extended him, and the Casals outfit shines with a bend of voices that stands out as very well wrought. Their well-measured brio is virtually unparalleled.

This is an extraordinarily well-rounded vision of the quartets. Cuarteto Casals do not stint on feeling, but neither do they overstate! And they come through with some exceptional bravura. It’s a set of performances that fit our times admirably.

Vol. 5 of the Verve Jazz Masters series features Bill Evans, who recorded a handful of interesting studio, live in concert, and individualistic projects in his mid-career from 1962-1969. This was a bridge period when he recorded for Verve, after his initial efforts on Riverside and before his return to that recording company with subsequent albums on the Riverside-affiliated Fantasy imprint. There are several different trios featured here among the 13 selections, but not exclusively triads, as a duet or quartet session is tossed in for good measure. Only two of his compositions are present, most particularly «Funkallero,» as well as a modicum of standards, the pop tune «Alfie,» and zingers like Thelonious Monk’s «Bemsha Swing,» Joe Zawinul’s «Angel Face,» and Denny Zeitlin’s «Quiet Now.» All are played with the typical restraint and melodic brilliance you consistently expect from Evans. The sole standout soloists are guitarist Jim Hall and tenor saxophonist Stan Getz. The collection showcases a sliver of Evans experimenting with different aspects of his then well-developed musical voice.

Al Jarreau – All Fly Home (1978)

With a restrained yet potent funk band and a few cameos from luminaries in the jazz world, Al Jarreau gets plenty of opportunities to wrap his rubbery, ever-changing timbre around an agreeable collection of tunes, the majority of which he wrote or co-wrote. Of the cover tunes, Jarreau completely transforms Kenny Loggins’ «Wait a Little While,» the Beatles’ «She’s Leaving Home» and Otis Redding’s «Dock of the Bay» into personal vehicles for vocal acrobatics, and his own «Fly» revives his uncanny ability to skitter and sail along with a Brazilian-based rhythm track. Freddie Hubbard puts in a soulful guest appearance on flugelhorn on Dave Frishberg’s «I’m Home» and applies a more outgoing obligato to «Fly»; Lee Ritenour and Paulinho Da Costa also make appearances on the record. While Jarreau could still be technically classified as a jazz singer at this point, he is really inhabiting a zone of his own.
