Today is Sunday, June 17, 2007. Father’s Day. Naturally, the obligatory, carefully selected cards, phone calls, and small gifts arrived from the children and grandchildren. Best wishes for Father’s Day were also the first words in the morning from Heidel, my wife of 54 years, although for many years I had made the comment: “I am not your father.

Welcome to this first tutorial in the “The Hollywood Film Studio Logo Animation Series”. After 75 years, the iconic 20th Century Fox logo is still a reference for many 3d artists. So today we’ll analyze the historical aspects, the style used, and how to easily create some of the elements in the scene (capitals, moldings, etc..) in Cinema 4D.

Of all the so-called minimalists working today, John Adams is the only one with any good ideas left. Witness this delightful release. The key to Adams's creativity is that he isn't bound by theoretical constraints on what "minimalism" should be. Century Rolls (1995) is a commission by Emanuel Ax, and it was inspired by the composer's listening to a CD recording of an ancient player piano.
The Orchestra of the Eighteenth Century, Frans Bruggen - Rameau: Les Boreades, Dardanus (1987)

Dardanus (1739) was Rameau's third excursion into tragedie-lyrique and Les boreades (1764), his last. Both works contain rich seams of inventive and colourful orchestral movements from which Frans Bruggen has created orchestral suites. In the case of Dardanus the quantity of dances and other miscellaneous instrumental pieces is unusually substantial, since for a revival of the opera in 1744 Rameau had been obliged to compose much new music.

The violin was perhaps the most popular instrument of the 17th century. It turns up in nearly every Baroque instrumental genre, including the solo sonata, the concerto, and the immensely popular trio sonata (for two violins, often complimented by harpsichord, organ, or theorbo). Much less common, but equally compelling, are pieces for three violins with some sort of plucked or strummed accompaniment.

‘Piano Icons For The 21st Century’ is an exceptionally performed collection of contemporary piano works by Pärt, Janáček, Sculthorpe and Mompou, plus the world premiere recording of John Tavener's Ypakoë. Piano Icons For The 21st Century was widely acclaimed upon its release and named a Gramophone ‘Critics' Choice': 'my disc of 2000 is without hesitation Elena Riu's extraordinarily fine CD.' John Tavener was inspired to write his first major solo work for piano in over twenty years after hearing Elena play. She premiered Ypakoë, a series of meditations on the death of Jesus, at the City of London Festival. The programme also includes Janacek's In The Mist, an intensely personal and darkly hued cycle, plus an intriguing collection of miniatures by three composers who, in her view, are on a similar wavelength: Peter Sculthorpe, the late Catalan composer Federico Mompou, and Arvo Pärt.

The restoration of Leonardo's final masterpiece, 'The Virgin and Child with Saint Anne' was completed and exhibited in the Louvre in March 2012. Viewers and critics were astounded by its new life and luminosity, allowing details to be seen again for the first time in 500 years. Nevertheless, the pain-staking restoration process caused ructions and controversy amongst the panel of international experts and the restorer chosen to undertake the work.
