Ernest Hemingway's novels rank among the most influential and celebrated in history, while his life remains an obscure image shrouded in myth. 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.

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.

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.

D’Indy wrote the Concert, his last orchestral piece, at the age of seventy-five.
