2008 four CD anthology that covers Ayers' musical career from 1969 to 1980; a period most fans and critics deem his best. Ayers remains one of Rock's oddest enigmas. He makes ordinary subjects extraordinary with his rich low vocals and inventive wordplay. He projects the image of a Prog-Rock beach bum writing about life's absurdities with a celebratory, relaxed detachment, yet he is also one of Prog- Rock's more important innovators, helping to launch the Soft Machine, and working with noted progressive musicians Mike Oldfield, Lol Coxhill, and Steve Hillage. Ayers' solo material reflected a Folksier, lazier, and gentler turn than Soft Machine. He was often compared to Syd Barrett, but without the madness and is never less than enjoyable and original, Discs One to Three contain 49 hits, album tracks and more while Disc Four was recorded at The Queen Elizabeth Hall, London on 25th May 1973.

A must-have for collectors of sublime historical recordings, this re-release of Fournier and Gulda's 1960 recording is equally appropriate for listeners seeking their first recording of Beethoven's works for cello and piano. Fournier's commitment to the exploration of the Beethoven sonatas and variations is clear; he made three complete recordings of the works over the course of his career – the first with Artur Schnabel in 1947, this one with Friedrich Gulda in 1960, and finally with pianist Wilhelm Kempff in 1965.

“You have to enter into sound, penetrate it in its triple essence: physical, psychic and creative”, words by Giacinto Scelsi, one of the most influential and enigmatic avant‐garde composers of 20‐th century Italy. Born into a wealthy family he went to Vienna for his education, studied with Arnold Schoenberg and returned to Italy where he organized concerts introducing contemporary composers like Prokofiev, Shostakovich, Hindemith and Stravinsky. Later he was influenced by eastern spiritualism which radically changed his conception of music, in which he had an important role for improvisation for both composer and performer.

Music is flux. Only the printed music on the page appears to us to be something objective, inalterable. Yet, the actual experience of music, which occurs anew and uniquely in each performance, is subjected to continual changes in spite of all “faithfulness to the original.” Personal experiences of life inform the effect of the music. It is the power of great music to convey its individual message at any time to every person. Thus the recordings on this album represent an invitation to undertake a very personal journey into Beethoven’s world.
