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.

Waterloo - Bernard Cornwell

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…

Poète, romancier, critique, Henri de Régnier (1864-1936) fut une sommité dans la littérature de son époque. Successivement chef de file des jeunes symbolistes, romancier à succès, pilier du Mercure de France, conteur fantastique et Académicien français, il fut adoubé par Mallarmé, admiré par André Gide, haï par Montesquiou qu’il combattit en duel, et fréquenta tous les artistes de son temps. Il fut aussi l’époux cocu de Marie de Heredia, la fille du poète, qui lui donna un fils signé Pierre Louÿs…

This recording gathers four string quartets by American composers who are widely divergent in style and manner, and who have made a distinctive and personal contribution to this endlessly re-inventive format. Ralph Evans is more familiar as a performer than composer. Finally completed in 1995, his First String Quartet is written in a non-derivative style, with tuneful melodies, lively counterpoint and piquant harmonies. Philip Glass has completed five mature quartets, his Second Quartet deriving from a theatrical presentation of Samuel Beckett’s prose poem Company. The self-styled ‘bad boy of American music’, George Antheil wrote three string quartets, the third of which is permeated by a folk-music ambience. Best remembered for his film scores, Bernard Herrmann had not released a concert work for 25 years when he wrote Echoes. Its title applies to the thematic connections unobtrusively linking the ten sections of this one-movement piece.

Gli ultimi giorni di Charles Baudelaire - Bernard-Henri Lévy

L'agonia di un poeta, il poeta maledetto, nella camera di un alberghetto di Bruxelles, distrutto ormai dalla lue, che ha roso il suo corpo e ormai distrugge la ragione e l'uso stesso della parola: il romanzo ha la fedeltà di una puntuale ricostruzione, ma anche la libertà dell'immaginazione che vuole scrutare e sciogliere un mistero. Che cosa è accaduto, in quelle ore estreme, nella mente dell'autore dei Fiori del male? Come è rivissuta tutta la sua storia nel film della memoria? Il Lévy romanziere e detective dell'anima pedina l'ultimo Baudelaire nei bassifondi e nei cenacoli letterari, nei giorni e nelle notti della sua esistenza perduta…

This live recording, taken from concerts performed in 2005, offers a revealing glimpse at the approach to Bruckner’s music developed by Dutch conductor Bernard Haitink and the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra over their many years of working together. Haitink first conducted Bruckner’s Eighth Symphony with the RCO in 1959 and has performed the work with the orchestra more than 20 times in the years that followed. Under his direction, the Concertgebouw Orchestra has established a Bruckner tradition of international reputation.
