Architecture In Europe Since 1968 by Alexander Tzonis
Rizzoli | September 15, 1992 | English | ISBN: 0847816249 | 311 pages | PDF | 70 MB

This work, winner of the 1992 American Institute of Architects Award, surveys two and a half decades of architectural projects in Europe. It begins with the completion of the first commissions embodying the ideas that sprang out of the exuberant events of 1968, and ends with the official unification of Europe. It contributes to contemporary debates on architecture and should be useful as a source reference.

World-Premeire Recordings Rombergs Cello Concertos. Sic transit gloria mundi all those who occupy themselves with Bernhard Rombergs life and work are immediately reminded of this traditional piece of wisdom. At the beginning of the nineteenth century he was acclaimed as an excellent virtuoso on the violoncello and recognized as one of the most important composers of his times. Even during his lifetime, however, he was forced to experience how his star declined, his playing style was regarded as old, and his compositions vanished from concert programs.

Final disc in Ronald Brautigam's traversal of Mozart's piano concertos. Throughout the ten previous discs in their series of Mozart's complete piano concertos, Ronald Brautigam and Die Kölner Akademie have offered up fresh, sometimes bracing readings of these perennial favourites. 'An ideal mixture of clarity and stylish effervescence' (International Record Review), 'as near as dammit what Mozart's audiences would have heard' (Classic FM Magazine) and 'a completely new, crisp 'Mozart-feel' for the 21st century' (Stereoplay) are just some of the responses from the international music press.

In this first volume of a complete cycle of the Prokofiev sonatas, his compatriot Alexander Melnikov reveals three emblematic works. The brilliant Second Sonata dates from 1912, when its composer was still a student at the St Petersburg Conservatory; with the Sixth (1939) and Eighth (1944) we meet the master in his full maturity, plunged in the darkest years of the Great Terror and the war. Echoes of his music for the theatre, lyricism and violence mingle amid ultra-virtuoso pianism.

Bob Chilcott is one of Britain’s most popular and respected composers and his choral music is performed worldwide. He has always embraced a broad stylistic palette and his writing for voice combined with jazz instrumentation gives these works a sense of vitality and energy. Performed by leading jazz soloists and Commotio, the distinguished promoters of contemporary repertoire, this sequence of brilliant villanelles, folk song arrangements and witty settings reveals once again the breadth of Chilcott’s musical imagination.
