In this feature-length portrait narrated by the author's granddaughter, actress Mariel Hemingway, BIOGRAPHY examines the remarkable life story of this legendary Nobel laureate. It is a fascinating trip through his world–from the hospital in Milan where he first found love to the resort community in the Midwest where he took his own life.

Label: Decca

In several valuable and newly remastered releases under ‘The Decca Recitals’ banner, Eloquence has compiled tributes to several fine singers of the 1950s whose vocal personality particularly fitted the demands of art song: among them Jacques Jansen, Irma Kolassi and Oda Slobodskaya. They are now joined by an 82-minute, single-CD issue of the song recordings made for Decca by the Swiss baritone Heinz Rehfuss. Rehfuss was an authoritative and keenly sympathetic presence on sets of Pelléas et Melisande (directed by Ernest Ansermet and reissued on Eloquence and the St. Matthew Passion (with Hermann Scherchen) which have attained the status of classics. Other Ansermet reissues on which he features include rarities by Ravel and Stravinsky.

Label: Naxos | Tracks: 13 | Rls.date: 2016

The distinguished Russian-born, American-resident Grigory Smirnov is, in the words of fellow composer John Corigliano "an exceptionally talented composer with a unique voice." Powerful and timeless, and not beholden to any particular stylistic affiliations, Smirnov explores the eternal questions in his music, notably so in the Dowson Songs. Taking ten poems by the English poet Ernest Dowson, he has organised them in a narrative cycle exploring, with great richness, the transformative evolution of love. In Chaconne, for cello and piano, whilst following Baroque ideas, Smirnov magically dissolves the borders between melody and harmony.

I wanna back to the islands
Where the shrimp boats tie up to the pilin'
Gimme oysters and beer For dinner every day of the year
and I'll feel fine I'll feel fine


Rocksteady is officially Monty Alexander's recording. His deal with Telarc, now being realized, was that he record a straight jazz recording and then one of his own choosing. This is the latter. Mr. Alexander, along with his Jamaican brother Ernest Ranglin, turns his attention to the ska music of their young adulthood. And this music absolutely smacks of the islands. Few musical styles can conjure temporal images the way ska and reggae do for salty sea air, rum, and smoke. Honored here is the ska heyday of the late 1960s and early 1970s, the music of Toots and the Maytals, The Blues Blasters, Theophilous Beckford, and Derrick Harriott.

For those listeners expecting reggae, modify your expectations. This music is a humid mixture of island music, American R&B and Soul, and Afro-Cuban jazz, and pop shined through the distinctly Jamaican cultural prism, producing this rich, sexual music. Little of Monty Alexander?s jazz chops are present, as I am sure was his design. Instead the pianist becomes a groove merchant establishing commerce with his partner in crime, guitarist Ernest Ranglin, whose role is to play funk master to Alexander?s relentless groove.

The disc was recorded live in the studio with no overdubs, providing this music with the necessary “live” feel. This is serious music that will make one smile and hope that Mr. Alexander provides us more.

On this disc, we feature the works of three composers – Vincent d’Indy, Ernst Krenek, and Erwin Schulhoff – who all in the mid- to late-1920s adopted neoclassicism and chose to write works in the neo-baroque concerto grosso style, using a combination of a small orchestra and a small group of soloists. D’Indy wrote the Concert, his last orchestral piece, at the age of seventy-five.
