Un conservateur terrorisé par les plantes vertes, une mère plastifiée pour être exposée, un ballet de Saintes Vierges, des gardiens épuisés par Rodin, un ministre perdu dans une exposition de sexes, une voiture disparue au parking Rembrandt, des provinciaux amoureux des Impressionnistes, touristes galopins galopant d'une salle à l'autre, passager clandestin dans l'art premier, Picasso, Gauguin, Warhol, ils sont tous là dans ce petit monde qui ressemble au grand, dans ce musée pas si imaginaire que ça, valsant la comédie humaine jusqu'au burlesque.

(What is a museum? Tourists hasten from one exhibition to another, devouring random fragments of culture like pigs gorging on scraps. More discriminating visitors are transported to the heights of sublime ecstasy by the bits of tat that takes their fancy. A minister considers the appropriate thing to say in front of a photographic display of sexual organs, whilst the curator is struggling to overcome his phobia of green plants. A musuem is not the collection of dead things on the walls or in the display cabinets, but the living human material that fills the crowded salons…)

In a world of six billion people, it only takes one to change your life. Sixty-two-year-old Walter Vale is sleepwalking through his life. Having lost his passion for teaching and writing, he fills the void by unsuccessfully trying to learn to play classical piano. When his college sends him to Manhattan to attend a conference, Walter is surprised to find a young couple has taken up residence in his apartment. Victims of a real estate scam, Tarek, a Syrian man, and Zainab, his Senegalese girlfriend, have nowhere else to go. In the first of a series of tests of the heart, Walter reluctantly allows the couple to stay with him. Touched by his kindness, Tarek, a talented musician, insists on teaching the aging academic to play the African drum. The instrument's exuberant rhythms revitalize Walter's faltering spirit and open his eyes to a vibrant world of local jazz clubs and Central Park drum circles. As the friendship between the two men deepens, the differences in culture, age and temperament fall away. After being stopped by police in the subway, Tarek is arrested as an undocumented citizen and held for deportation. As his situation turns desperate, Walter finds himself compelled to help his new friend with a passion he thought he had long ago lost. When Tarek's beautiful mother Mouna arrives unexpectedly in search of her son, the professor's personal commitment develops into an unlikely romance. And it's through these new found connections with these virtual strangers that Walter is awakened to a new world and a new life.

Professeur d'économie dans une université du Connecticut, Walter Vale, la soixantaine, a perdu le goût de l'enseignement et mène désormais une vie routinière. Il tente de combler le vide de son existence en apprenant le piano, mais sans grand succès… Lorsque l'Université l'envoie à Manhattan pour assister à une conférence sa vie va basculer. Il rencontre Tarek, d'origine syrienne, et sa petite amie sénégalaise Zainab (jeune couple qui s'est installé dans l'appartement qu'il possède là-bas : victimes d'une escroquerie immobilière, Tarek et Zainab n'ont nulle part ailleurs où aller ; d'abord un rien réticent, Walter accepte de laisser les deux jeunes gens habiter avec lui). Tarek musicien doué, insiste pour lui apprendre à jouer du djembé. Tandis que les deux hommes deviennent amis, les différences d'âge, de culture et de caractère s'estompent. Lorsque Tarek, immigré clandestin, est arrêté par la police dans le métro, puis menacé d'expulsion, Walter va tout mettre en œuvre pour venir en aide à son ami…

Philippe Abrams est directeur de la poste de Salon-de-Provence. Il est marié à Julie, dont le caractère dépressif lui rend la vie impossible. Pour lui faire plaisir, Philippe fraude afin d'obtenir une mutation sur la Côte d'Azur. Mais il est démasqué: il sera muté à Bergues, petite ville du Nord.Pour les Abrams, sudistes pleins de préjugés, le Nord c'est l'horreur, une région glacée, peuplée d'êtres rustres, éructant un langage incompréhensible, le « cheutimi ». Philippe ira seul. A sa grande surprise, il découvre un endroit charmant, une équipe chaleureuse, des gens accueillants, et se fait un ami : Antoine, le facteur et le carillonneur du village, à la mère possessive et aux amours contrariées. Quand Philippe revient à Salon, Julie refuse de croire qu'il se plait dans le Nord. Elle pense même qu'il lui ment pour la ménager. Pour la satisfaire et se simplifier la vie, Philippe lui fait croire qu'en effet, il vit un enfer à Bergues.

From the notes:"It is often said, not without justification, that Toscanini's performances stand out from those of his contemporaries for what might be called their (for the time) 'modern' approach, which is to say that the excesses of Romantic subjective interpretation were, generally speaking, not for him. What distinguished his readings principally is his extraordinary command of structure, realised through the appositeness of his chosen tempi, very rarely varied, and only then to make a definite musical point, almost as a punctuation in the overall schematic plan, allied to orchestral playing of considerable concentration and commitment. Toscanini never needed to indulge in jejune 'point-making' as an interpretative habit - nor did he countenance it in other conductors." written by Robert Matthew-Walker

The New Year's Concert in Vienna has been a glorious tradition for over six decades. A best-selling classical event, the concert has a unique global appeal. It has been broadcast on TV and radio to over 50 countries, and is viewed by tens of millions of people all over the world. The 2008 New Year's Day Concert will be conducted by the eminent conductor Georges Prêtre, the first French conductor to receive this honor. The concert program for January 1, 2008 will be the customary collection of Strauss delights, but this time with a French theme. Receiving its first performance at a New Year's Concert, Napoleon March op. 156 by Johann Strauss II will open the program. The traditional encores of Blue Danube Waltz and Radetzky March will be joined by the Sport Polka as a nod to the European Football Championship to be held in Vienna in 2008. The Summer Olympics in Beijing is also being saluted by the orchestra with an early work of the elder Johann Strauss, his exotically colored Chinese Gallop.

Ship Simulator is a revolutionary ship simulation game, whereby you get the ability to steer various ships in different environments. Both the graphical quality of the ships and their dynamic behavior are completely realistic, so the game is not only fun, but you learn something about ships and ship handling as well. The initial version was released in 2006 in 20 countries and 7 languages and sold beyond expectation. Its success led to the development of an add-on pack with 6 additional ships, and a Professional edition aimed at Nautical Schools. Previously announced as Ship Simulator 2007 earlier this year, the decision to hold back the release until the middle part of the year has prompted the decision to change the title to Ship Simulator 2008. This also reiterates the companies commitment to support the product with add-ons and new features throughout 2008.

Saxophonist John Tchicai was best known for his time in New York during the height of the '60s free jazz explosion, but he actually spent the majority of his career advancing the cause of avant-garde jazz in Northern Europe. Tchicai was born April 28, 1936, in Copenhagen to a Danish mother and Congolese father; he began playing violin at age ten, switched to both clarinet and alto sax at 16, and focused on the latter at Denmark's Conservatory of Music…
