Johann Christian Bach, nicknamed the “London Bach”, was the 11th and youngest son of Johann Sebastian Bach. Only 15 years old when his father died, he left Leipzig in 1750 to spend some time with his stepbrother Carl Philipp Emmanuel in Berlin. He later moved to Italy where he studied composition with Padre Martini in Bologna. In 1762 Johann Christian Bach became Music Director at the King’s Theatre in London. Bach stayed in London until his death in 1782. One of several operas he wrote during his first (and last) season at the King’s Theatre was the “Opera Seria” Zanaida. The Libretto by Giovanni Gualberto Bottarelli is an adaptation of Metastasio’s “Siface”, with the text for one of the arias written by Carlo Goldoni. Fashionable at the time, the opera deals with political and sentimental intrigues between Turkey and Persia. It is a story about power, blind obedience versus insubordination, and of course, love. Zanaida features nine soloists: six sopranos, a mezzosoprano, a tenor and a baritone. In the orchestral score Johann Christian Bach was one of the first to include two clarinets as well as two “tailles” (tenor oboes).

…Zacharias began recording for EMI the following year, and would, by 1997, make over 40 albums for the label, covering a broad range of repertory, including Mozart (complete concertos and sonatas), Beethoven (complete concertos), Scarlatti, Schubert, Schumann, and many others. Despite great success throughout the 1980s and early '90s in his keyboard career, Zacharias decided to take up conducting in 1992. His debut was in Geneva with the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande…
Cross on the Star of David: The Christian World in Israel's Foreign Policy, 1948-1967

The official establishment of the State of Israel in May 1948 constituted the realization of the Zionist vision, but military victory left in its wake internal and external survival issues that would threaten this historic achievement for decades to come. The refusal of the international community to recognize the political, geographic, and demographic results of the War of Independence presented Israel with a permanent regional security threat, while isolating and alienating it in the international arena. One of the most formidable problems Israeli foreign policy faced was the stance of the Christian world toward the new state.

Youngest son of J.S. Bach, Johann Christian Bach rose to prominence in England during the early Classical period much the same as his father dominated the German Baroque. His writing was influenced by his father, of course, but also by the fashions being explored by Haydn. J.C. Bach also served as a bridge to Mozart, whose work and early writings were also influenced by the junior Bach. A total of 15, three-movement symphonies were published under Opp. 6, 9, and 18. These works are filled with fresh, energetic optimism, the only exception being the stormy, tumultuous Symphony Op. 6/6 in G minor, the only one of the 15 to be written in the minor mode. Bach's choice of instruments varied, from symphonies using only strings to the addition of winds and ultimately to the grand "double orchestra" employed in Op. 18. This Newton disc is a two-disc reissue of David Zinman's early 1970s recordings of the complete symphonies with the Netherlands Chamber Orchestra.

Genre: Jazz, Hard Bop

This album is a collaboration between vibraphonist Stefon Harris, trumpeter Christian Scott, and tenor saxophonist David Sanchez, recorded in Havana with Cuban musicians, including pianists Rember Duharte and Harold Lуpez-Nussa. It's not a Latin jazz album, though; these guys are primarily interested in moving classic hard bop into the future with infusions of hip-hop sensibility and groove, and that aesthetic permeates Ninety Miles, though there are occasional keyboard montunos and plenty of conga-driven rhythms to be heard, particularly on the album's peak, the hard Afro-Cuban/New Orleans funk workout "Congo."

All distance is relative, especially where geopolitical borders and ideologies are involved. We speak one language, they speak another. We follow our system, they follow theirs. When we focus on the differences, a relatively short stretch of land or water starts to look like a yawning chasm. But when we look at each other as individuals and focus on the similarities, that "chasm" is actually a very short distance. Less than a hundred miles. Musicians - especially jazz musicians, whose craft is in many ways an improvised form of communication - understand this principle inherently, perhaps better than any politician or diplomat could ever hope to.
