In all due likelihood, this is what they’re listening to in Paris tonight. Uppermmost isn’t a band or a duo, it’s one guy and he has managed to do the work of several in creating some of the most spellbinding and compelling tracks I’ve heard in a very long time.
It’s amazing how far Electronica has come in such a short time and there is currently a lot of this going on in Europe, and most notably Paris, where Uppermost is from. Tonight’s track is Independent and it came out three days ago.
I think it’s safe to say there’s a lot more where that came from.

Over to Spain this week for a concert by Orquesta Sinfonica de Eskadi, conducted by Andrey Boreyko and featuring the inimitable Hèlène Grimaud, piano.
Only two works for this concert, recorded by Radio Nacional Espana on October 8, 2009; Rachmaninoff‘s Piano Concerto Number 2 and Tchaikovsky‘s Symphony Number 1 (Winter Dreams).
The top player is the Rachmaninoff and the bottom player is the Tchaikovsky.
