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.

Equally adept with both the cello and organ, Alexander Knyazev, a graduate of the Moscow Conservatory specializing in cello and Nizhny Novgorod Conservatory specializing in organ has long focused on the organ and cello repertory of J.S. Bach. Lauded for his innate musicality and interpretative skills, Knyazevs first public acclaim came as a cellist. This collection presents the rarely performed chorale preludes composed by Bach during his stay in Leipzig in the last decade of his life and not published until after his death. Recorded in 2012 in the Riga Cathedral in Latvia renowned for its historic pipe organ.

Contemporary Classical, Chamber | Label: ECM | # ECM New Series 1959, 476 3108

The title of ECM's release of works by three composers born in the former Soviet Union perfectly captures the mood of the CD – it is truly mysterious. Although more than half a century separates the first of these pieces from the most recent, they share a sense of otherness that defies easy explanation. The pieces are not so much mysterious in the sense of being eerie (although there are several moments that might raise the hairs on the back of your neck if you were listening alone in the dark); they are unsettling because they raise more questions than they answer.

Director and violinist Alexander Janiczek leads principal players from the Scottish Chamber Orchestra in this beautifully intimate recording. Mozart's writing allows each player to shine and demonstrates the depth of talent within the ensemble, illustrating why this orchestra has had such extensive success with its previous Mozart recordings. The works on this disc are full of well-known tunes which demonstrate Mozart's trademark melodic beauty. Acclaimed oboist, Robin Williams, gives a dazzling performance of the composer's great masterpiece. This is the fourteenth recording in the orchestra's hugely successful partnership with Linn Records, a series that includes the award-winning Mozart Symphonies recordings with the late Sir Charles Mackerras.

The Chamber Orchestra of Europe performs Stravinsky's Apollon Musagète and Pulcinella Suite, repertoire that demands the fresh and energetic delivery for which the COE is renowned. The COE deliver the 'wonderful freshness' Stravinsky himself envisioned in Apollon Musagète with their bright and spirited performance. The Guardian commented: 'In Stravinsky's Apollon Musagète each and every player contributed to the distinctive, rich-toned sonority.'

A tribute to Alexander Glazunov who turned post-Tchaikovsky Russian musicians into true professionals. He was a composer emeritus and helped raise the profile of classical symphonies and ballet music before and after the Mighty Handful. Mvravinsky insisted on performing pieces by this incredibly selfless pedagogue which slip into the category of Romanticism, although he preferred the ‘banned’ compositions of his students such as the obstreperous young Stravinsky or the insufferably pretentious Prokofiev.
