Varese's original soundtrack to Psycho finds Joel McNeely conducting the Royal Scottish National Orchestra through Bernard Herrmann's classic original score. This album is the first time the entire score has been recorded for an album and its remarkable how eerie and evocative the music is, even when its separated from the film. Psycho stands as one of Herrmann's finest moments, and even if many collectors and film buffs would prefer the original soundtrack recording, this version is essential for fans of the composer, since it is the clearest, cleanest edition of score yet produced.

The least popular of Alfred Hitchcock's late-'50s thrillers – perhaps because it is really a comedy – The Trouble with Harry also has the least well-known of the scores that Bernard Herrmann wrote for Hitchcock's movies. All of that is a shame, because – in keeping with the comedic nature of the movie – Herrmann assumed a lighthearted and upbeat, ironic mask that led to some of the most gorgeous and hauntingly beautiful music of his career; the composer himself clearly felt a fondness for it, as he revived it in 1968 as the basis for his "A Portrait of Hitch." The reed and horn passages are playful and ironic, and the signature string part, bridging the small-town innocence of the movie's setting, is one of the finest things that Herrmann conceived. It all makes for delightful listening, and is some of the best programmatic music to come out of Hollywood in the 1950s. The performance by Joel McNeely and the Royal Scottish National Orchestra is of excellent quality, capturing the finest nuances of the score, and the recording does it full justice.

Citizen Kane: The Classic Film Scores of Bernard Herrmann is probably the best of the entire series by conductor Charles Gerhardt and the National Philharmonic Orchestra. Every track is worthwhile and memorably played, especially Beneath the 12-Mile Reef and the suite from Citizen Kane, the latter highlighted by Kiri Te Kanawa's performance of the Strauss-like aria from Salammbo.

Une histoire amusante de l'orthographe, des Gaulois à nos jours
L’orthographe, ses règles obscures et ses exceptions vous font souffrir ? Rassurez-vous, c’est voulu ! Comment pourrait-il en être autrement dans un pays à l’histoire si tumultueuse ? Comme la France, notre orthographe a traversé les siècles en empruntant des voies détournées, sans craindre détours ni autres pirouettes. …

EAC | FLAC (image+.cue, log) | Covers Included | 52:13 | 193 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Decca | Catalog: 417 613-2

Rachmaninov's opus 1, his first piano concerto, deserves to be heard more often. The opening bars have that heroic sound that raises the hair on the back of the neck. Indeed those first moments rank alongside those of the Grieg and Tchaikovsky piano concertos for their ability to thrill. Ashkenazy's breathtaking playing on a superb piano is matched by that of the Concertgebouw Orchestra under Haitink's direction.

Il 18 giugno del 1815 gli eserciti di Francia, Gran Bretagna e Prussia si scontrarono in una tranquilla piana a sud di Bruxelles. Nei tre giorni precedenti l'esercito francese aveva battuto gli inglesi a Quatre Bras e i prussiani a Ligny. Gli alleati erano in ritirata. La sanguinosa battaglia di Waterloo sarebbe diventata una pietra miliare nella storia europea, anche perché fino alla sera del 18, l'esercito francese era a un passo dalla vittoria. Bernard Cornwell racconta la cronaca dei quattro giorni che precedettero la battaglia e poi ora per ora le emozioni di quella giornata fatidica…
