This may be the single most powerful piece of music that the Kronos Quartet has ever recorded, and perhaps that Terry Riley has ever written. This is because Requiem for Adam is so personal, so direct, and experiential. Requiem for Adam was written after the death of Kronos violinist David Harrignton's son. He died, in 1995, at the age of 16, from an aneurysm in his coronary artery. Riley, who is very close to the Harringtons and has a son the same age, has delved deep into the experience of death and resurrection, or, at the very least, transmutation. Requiem for Adam is written in three parts, or movements. The first, "Ascending the Heaven Ladder," is based on a four-note pattern that re-harmonizes itself as it moves up the scale. There are many variations and series based on each of these notes and their changing harmonics, and finally a 5/4 dance as it moves to the highest point on the strings. The drone-like effect is stunning when the listener realizes that the drone is changing shape too, ascending the scale, moving ever upward and taking part in the transmutation of harmony.

Mentre la tempesta infuria sulle coste di Dunworley Bay, una minuscola figura è immobile sull’orlo di una scogliera a picco sul mare: è una bambina a piedi scalzi, con folti riccioli rossi e una lunga veste bianca. Ipnotizzata di fronte a quella strana apparizione, Grania Ryan, una scultrice di successo appena tornata da New York per riprendersi da un brutto trauma, scoprirà ben presto di non aver sognato. Sua madre Kathleen non ha alcun dubbio: la piccola è Aurora Lisle, che ha perso la mamma in circostanze drammatiche proprio in quel luogo. Grania è irresistibilmente attratta dall’incredibile vitalità di Aurora e non può fare a meno di affezionarsi a lei e a suo padre…

"After the widely noticed performance at the „Acht Brücken Festival 2016” at Cologne's Philharmonic Hall, Gregor Schwellenbach, Hauschka, Erol Sarp (of „Grandbrothers“), Daniel Brandt, Paul Frick (both of "Brandt Brauer Frick") and John Kameel Farah will be releasing their interpretation of Steve Reich’s "Six Pianos" as a studio recording via FILM. The re-recording of this piece is an interpretation of Reich’s composition but still far more than just that – it is a modern approach to his idea behind it. "Keyboard Study #1" by Terry Riley is a worthy b-side opposed to Reich’s composition. The piece is kind of a building set of ever lengthening, repetitive patterns played against each other with the right and left hand displaced. The composition proposes various possible combinations for the performer to choose from and repeat at will. And what the performers have chosen proves Gregor Schwellenbach’s assumption: "Especially Terry Riley’s and Steve Reich’s music are open doors for pianists socialized by pop music and their audience".

Si dice che le brave ragazze vadano in paradiso, mentre le altre vanno dappertutto.
Ne è convinta Bernadette St. John, giornalista di successo che ha costruito la propria notorietà grazie a una serie di spietate interviste a uomini famosi, messi implacabilmente a nudo dopo essere stati persuasi a confidarle le loro debolezze. Tutti sanno chi è l’Incantauomini (questo il suo marchio di fabbrica, l’appellativo con cui firma le interviste): gli uomini ne sono attratti, le donne vorrebbero essere come lei. Ma ben pochi conoscono la vera Bernadette. Solo Tim Bazier, il suo agente, sa cosa si nasconde dietro alla maschera di donna inscalfibile dal look sempre impeccabile e alla moda. Quando Tim annuncia il fidanzamento con Elizabeth, Bernadette è sconvolta: come può relegarla in secondo piano? Come può preferire una donna così insipida senza accorgersi che loro invece potrebbero essere la coppia perfetta, nel lavoro e nella vita?
