Bryce Dessner – who composes “gorgeous, full-hearted music” according to National Public Radio – seamlessly blends aspects of the classical and the popular in his concert works, the compositions simultaneously alive to past and present and the potential of the future.

Headphone Commute Review 7 Dec. 2014
By Headphone Commute - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
For its latest fascinating offering, crisscrossing between modern classical, cinematic, and electronic music scenes, the 115+ year-old yellow label, Deutsche Grammophon Records, brings us a beautiful split between two amazing contemporary composers. On the bill are three orchestral works by Bryce Dessner, known from his work with The National rock band, as well as a complete 6-piece Suite from “There Will Be Blood” soundtrack, composed by Jonny Greenwood of Radiohead. The latter was originally released by Nonesuch records back in 2007 (when the film came out) and was performed by the BBC Concert Orchestra and The Emperor Quartet. For this recording, the German label enlists André de Ridder, conducting the Copenhagen Phil at the Royal Danish Academy of Music Concert Hall in Copenhagen. The result, captured with a 5 x DPA 4006TL omnidirectional condenser microphone array and archived at 352.8kHz/32bit by DAD AX24, is nothing less of stunning.

“For any classical musician who’s been born since 1960, the music of the era around them is popular music,” says Dessner. “You find that in many variations: former rock musicians who end up going the classical route, or very academic composers who are perhaps re-setting a text by Bob Dylan. You find all kinds of various strands of this. Someone like myself or Jonny Greenwood, we’re actually part of a new generation of composers where our education, our background, our interests are so diverse that you can’t really say ‘oh, that’s a guy from a rock band who writes classical music’. You should say the opposite: Jonny Greenwood was a classical violist who became a guitarist with Radiohead. But the music he’s interested in is still Penderecki and Ligeti.”

On “Raphael”, the last 17-minute pieces by Dessner, his guitar playing comes in only around the 9:30 mark – a quietly amplified strum that slowly gets lifted up in the atmosphere by strings, woodwinds and drone. The cinematic aesthetic is present throughout the work here, finally striking in rhythm with orchestral percussion snare double roll. Tension builds with immense texture and dynamics until this raw emotion explodes into an organ hum, rolling off the last three minutes of the piece. Similar passion is present in Greenwood’s miniature works (relative to Dessner, the three-minute pieces of the suite seem short). Being an actual film score, There Will Be Blood theme portrays a sense of nostalgic longing, anguish and desire. These are all my favorite elements, earning the original, above mentioned release, a spot on Headphone Commute’s best of the year lists. On this particular recording, however, the pieces seem to come alive in a whole new sonic dimension (or is it just my new headphones again).

If you find yourself aching for more, be sure to pick up the full score of There Will Be Blood, which you can also compliment with Greenwood’s work on Norwegian Wood (2010) and The Master (2012). Be sure to also check out Kronos Quartet Plays Music By Bryce Dessner – Aheym (2013), a four-piece album on LA based ANTI- Records. Along with the latest release by Anna Thorvaldsdottir (if you haven’t heard this yet, definitely go find Aerial), as well as Arcade Fire‘s Richard Reed Parry‘s Music For Heart And Breath (2014) [featuring Nico Muhly, Bryce Dessner, Aaron Dessner and the Kronos Quartet] and of course the signing of Max Richter for the Vivaldi’s Four Seasons RECOMPOSED (2012), the beloved imprint of traditional “classical” music is more than redefining its current omnipresence within the modern and contemporary music scenes – it is embodying the definition and its outer limits of the genre.

4.5 stars... "A new frontier for symphonic music" 26 Mar. 2015
By Paul Allaer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I had no idea that this album had been released last year, and just recently picked this up (more on that later). Bryce Dessner and Jonny Greenwood are both well known for their roles as guitarists in The National and Radiohead, respectively. Both of them have also a strong interest in classical music, and this CD is just the latest proof of it.

This CD (9 tracks; 65 min.) brings us three pieces composed by Bryce Dessner, and then a 20 min. suite from Greenwood's score for the movie "There Will Be Blood". The album kicks off with Dessner's "St. Carolyn by the Sea", a gorgeous 13 min. score in which the Copenhagen Phil, conducted by Andre de Ridder, plays masterfully. Bryce and his twin brother Aaron Dessner play electric guitar but in a very subtle and auxiliary way, Next comes "Lachrimae", a more abstract, modern-classical piece. The best Dessner composition is the third and last, a 17 min. journey called "Raphael", with Bryce again providing subtle electric guitar here and there. I find these three pieces absolutely fantastic, and worth the price of the CD by themselves. Compared to the daring compositions from Dessner, the mini-suite from Greenwood for "There Will Be Blood" sounds a bit ordinary, frankly. Not to say that it doesn't sound good, because it does. But Greenwood was done no favor by being matched up AFTER Dessner's pieces. The liner notes, an essay titled "A new frontier for symphonic music", for this Deutsche Grammophon release are superb, and the title capsules perfectly what you can expect on this album.

Bryce Dessner is the curator of the annual MusicNOW festival here in Cincinnati, the 10th edition of which just took place a couple of weeks ago (and where I picked up this CD). The festival has evolved a bit over the years from a showcase for indie bands (think Joanna Newsom, Grizzly Bears, Justin Vernon, etc.) to a more classical music oriented festival, in which the Cincinnati Symphony plays a prominent role. This year, the highlight was the National bringing a full-blown set with the CSO. Interestingly, this album's liner notes reference the infamous (and outstanding) Deep Purple "Concerto for Group and Orchestra" release, and I was already dreaming of something similar for the National/CSO set. Alas, it was not to be. Instead the National played their usual songs, with the CSO simply accompanying them. Not bad, but it could've been something entirely different. A missed opportunity... Meanwhile, if you are into classical music and are ready to try something new, you cannot go wrong with this. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!
