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'.

This program includes some of the least known masterpieces from Ernest Bloch’s nearly 30 works for orchestra. Macbeth: Two Symphonic Interludes is an intoxicating and passionate distillation of Shakespeare’s powerful drama. In Memoriam is a brief elegy dedicated to the pianist Ada Clement, while the Three Jewish Poems were written when Bloch was mourning the death of his father. Originally conceived as a third concerto grosso, Bloch’s last Symphony, in E flat major, is at times emotionally turbulent and deeply spiritual work containing passages of harmonic acerbity.

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.

The Austrian pianist David Helbock belongs to the generation of jazz musicians who are heading off in their own individual directions, pushing the boundaries, radically re-configuring our understanding of what old and new music is, re-aligning composition and improvisation, and challenging common pre-conceptions about style and personality. 'These days jazz musicians often take pop songs as their point of departure, says Helbock. 'Speaking frankly, it doesn t matter what you cover, whether it s pop, classical music, world music - whatever.

34 songs from the famous Songs of the Hebrides collection by Marjory Kennedy-Fraser published in the early years of this century. There are some extraordinarily beautiful songs here (Ernest Newman wrote of them that Schubert and Hugo Wolf would have knelt and kissed the hands of their unknown composers). The most famous song in the collection is the Eriskay Love Lilt but several of the others will be familiar to anybody who has bought our Bantock recordings: Sea Longing was the inspiration for the slow movement of the Celtic Symphony, and Kishmul's Galley is the tune blazed out by the Royal Philharmonic horns at the end of the Hebridean Symphony.

Ernest Nagel - La struttura della scienza. Problemi di logica della spiegazione scientifica (1981)
Italian | Feltrinelli | 1981 | PDF | Pages 665 | ASIN: B00ROE07VC | 12.0 MB

Ernst Nagel, filosofo della scienza boemo si trasferì in giovane età negli Stati Uniti, dove studiò con M.R. Cohen al City College di New York e, dopo aver conseguito il dottorato, insegnò alla Columbia University. È esponente, con John H. Randall e Justus Buchler, della scuola naturalistica della Columbia University, che considera la scienza come metodo privilegiato per l'analisi della realtà e identifica poi la realtà con la natura, nella quale rientra, in un continuum unitario, anche l'uomo con i suoi valori. Nagel si è preoccupato soprattutto di rendere conto da un punto di vista naturalistico dei principi della logica. Rifiutando la soluzione di J. Stuart Mill, che vede nei principi logici delle generalizzazioni empiriche ben fondate, Nagel propone di considerarli invece come proposte di ideali di precisione che possono mutare a seconda della classe di fenomeni; contingenza e fallibilità sono quindi caratteristiche essenziali della ricerca scientifica.

Fully restored to incredible quality, The Garden Spot Programs, 1950 is more like being in the studio when they were recorded than actually listening to them on the radio!
