British pop-jazz-blues crooner Elkie Brooks (born Elaine Bookbinder) dominated U.K. radio in the late '70s with a series of hit singles that established her as "the biggest-selling female album artist in the history of the British pop charts." The Manchester native, who grew up in an extremely musical family, left school at the age of 15 to join a dance band in London. She eventually mad the jump to radio, as well as numerous appearances with legendary jazz bandleader Humphrey Lyttelton, before embarking on a career in pop music. The early '60s saw the budding young singer releasing singles for Decca and EMI, as well as opening for everyone from Carl Perkins to the Beatles, but commercial success remained elusive.

Vocalist Sylvia Brooks likes to provide her music a noir patina, that smoky and dark evening tone preferred by the likes of the fictional hard men: Sam Spade, Philip Marlowe, and Jeff Markham. On her third recording, The Arrangement, this patina is given a high buff shine into something more contemporary, without losing any of the inherent sexiness of the music and its delivery.

An enthusiastic amateur flautist, Frederick the Great always gave music a key place in his daily schedule, as can be seen in the musical ornaments in the decoration of his palace. Indeed, the Music Room is one of the finest rooms in this little Rococo jewel. Works by Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach and his father Johann Sebastian, as well as Johann Gottlieb Graun and the King of Prussia himself are the central focus of this programme. They vividly evoke the musical atmosphere for which Sanssouci was the most elegant showcase.

Dopo anni di pace un terribile pericolo si addensa sulle Quattro Terre. Una spedizione di Druidi viene crudelmente massacrata nel lontano Nord da un nemico con un irresistibile potere che non lascia traccia, né prigionieri. Una forma di magia fino a oggi sconosciuta sta compiendo una vera e propria carneficina. Il destino del mondo intero poggia ora sulle spalle di un Druido Supremo esiliato, di una giovane donna con il dono del Canto Magico, ansiosa di imparare a controllare il suo formidabile potere grazie all'aiuto di un vero maestro, e del paladino dei Druidi, l'unico che all'interno di un ordine ormai allo sbando è in grado di valutare con lucidità il pericolo incombente. Il conflitto è senza sosta e le sfide mortali che si profilano davanti a loro sembrano destinate a non avere mai fine.
