Avec Player One (Michel Lafon), Ernest Cline propose un roman futuriste taillé sur mesure pour les geeks de 2012… Cline a ainsi pris soin de développer deux ambiances radicalement différentes : celle du monde réel, sombre, violente, à la merci des grandes puissances industrielles; et celle de l'OASIS, onirique et protéiforme, et dont les seules limites dépendent de l'imagination de ses créateurs. Pour profiter de l'immersion et ne pas être dégoûté par la lecture de cette épopée, mieux vaut avoir l'esprit bien connecté. World of Warcraft, Monthy Pythons, Pac Man, Ladyhawke…

Im Jahr 2044 hat die reale Welt für Wade Watts nicht mehr viel zu bieten. Daher flieht er - wie die meisten Menschen - in das virtuelle Utopia von OASIS. Hier kann man leben, spielen und sich verlieben, ohne von der bedrückenden Realität abgelenkt zu werden. Da entdeckt Wade in einem Online-Game den ersten Hinweis auf das enorme Erbe des verstorbenne Schöpfers von OASIS, das er in seiner Cyber-Welt versteckt hat. Plötzlich ist Wade eine Berühmtheit, aber er gerät auch ins Visier eines Killerkommandos - in OASIS und in der Realität. Wade weiß, dass er diese mörderische Hetzjagd nur überleben kann, wenn er das Spiel bis zu seinem ungewissen Ende spielt!

A precocious violin talent, Bloch left home at the age of seventeen to study with the illustrious Belgian violinist and composer Eugène Ysaÿe, who regognised his pupil's extraordinary creative potential and persuaded him to pursue composition. Bloch's Violin Cocnerto, an underrated rarity, is one of his most important works of the 1930s. Although Bloch attributed the major themes in the Concerto to American Indian songs heard on a visit to New Mexico, he also described the work as portraying 'the complex, glowing, agitated soul that I feel vibrating through the Bible'. The Suite hébraïque, which draws on traditional melodies to evoke a sense of nostalgia, and the exotic tryptich Baal Shem (Three Pictures of Chassidic Life), are indelibly associated with Bloch's 'Jewish works'.

Ernest Chausson’s death in 1899 in a bicycle accident robbed French music of a major talent. Almost his entire orchestral output fits on this extremely fine CD. Yan Pascal Tortelier’s performance of the richly romantic Symphony is the best since Munch’s Boston Symphony recording. Like Munch, Tortelier knows how to keep the music moving along–he’s only an insignificant two minutes slower than Munch for the whole work–without overindulging the more luscious moments, which in Chausson’s opulent setting really do take care of themselves. Even better, rather than some overplayed encore piece by another composer, the symphony is coupled with two very attractive, rarely heard tone poems and two charming orchestral excerpts from the composer’s incidental music to Shakespeare’s The Tempest. The orchestra plays with conviction, Chandos’ sonics are gorgeous, and if you don’t buy this disc, you’re missing out on some marvelous stuff.

Nels Cline was named by Rolling Stone as one of the '100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time'. He has led various groups of his own, most consistently the avant-garde ensemble the Nels Cline Singers, and appeared as a guest or feature player on more than 200 albums. Whether playing with his own avant-jazz bands or Wilco, strangeness and invention are two of guitarist Nels Cline's defining characteristics. Since the 1980s, he's longed to cut a large-scale album of "mood music" revolving around the concept of love and romance. He made ever changing lists of tunes from the Great American Songbook, cinema, jazz, pop, and exotica, but thought the project beyond his capability.
