Spark is a group of young musicians who are so good that they deserve to be named individually:
 Andrea Ritter and Daniel Koschitzki play recorders of various sizes (along with melodica and some other exotica; Koschitzki also plays piano and sings on one track); Stefan Gauss is the violinist, Victor Plumettaz the cellist, and Jutta Rieping the pianist. Their tastes run the gamut of style, and they embrace all sorts of music heroically and unapologetically.
 Chiel Meijering is one part post-minimalist, one part rock-and-roll, one part progressive house: his Harde Puntjes is a sturdy little etude in rhythmic elan and minimal patternings; a kind of remix (beats supplied by the young German human beatbox, Robeat) makes the popular leanings even clearer. By contrast, Kenji Bunch's Groovebox Variations sounds like tame crossover music. Nyman's Jack and Nadia fit in perfectly here. There are also three classical adaptations (I'm tempted to say 'covers', because they are never quite straight performances): Fauré's 'Apres un Reve', the sonatina from Bach's funeral cantata, and one of Vivaldi's Estro Armonico concertos (Op. 3: 2 in G minor),
 which is probably the most outre of the lot. Throw in Christopher Herrmann's Dinah's Night Flight, a cello tour de force involving rock and classical gestures, and an absurdly campy arrangement of 'Can't Take My Eyes Off of You', and you've got the makings of a genuine classical music phenomenon not unlike Yo Yo Ma or the Kronos Quartet, but even more vital. These five young musicians deliver the goods with virtuosity and aplomb. I have a feeling that Spark will soon be picked up by a big label and marketed with enthusiasm.
