Never before have so many Doctors, Scientists, Researchers, and Survivors gathered so boldly to share their secrets for survival. While mainstream doctors and oncologists want you to believe that “cancer is a death sentence”… IT IS ABSOLUTELY NOT! I once had someone ask me this: Would you give a healthy person Chemo (poison)? Would you give a healthy person Radiation? Of course not. So why do we give sick people these treatments and expect them to get well? Is there a better way? Do we have more options? YES!
Rare stuff from John Coltrane! The album features Trane playing tenor on only 4 of the album's 8 tracks – making it kind of surprising that they used his name in the title – but the album is a lesser-known batch of large group recordings that offer an interesting early chapter in his career! The main force behind the album is arranger Harry Tubbs – possibly not a name that's as sexy as John Coltrane, hence the billing – but a worthy leader for the date, given the quality of the music.
Puccini's music has never been more elegant or beautiful. It is amazing that this lovely opera remains so little heard. With performances as brilliant as this one I doubt that will continue for much longer. If you are a devotee of Puccini you will probably love this staging of his still rarely performed but nearly perfect creation: La Rondine. It is a performance of rare elegance and taste, suffused with the autumnal musical beauty of an artist at twilight.
After her triumphant success as Carmen in Riga, London, and Munich, Elina Garanca, “the Carmen of our day” (News, Austria), took the Metropolitan Opera by storm when filmed live in January 2010 for this 2-DVD release.
Every generation has its “go to” Carmen. In 2010, the list of definitive gypsy seductresses – glittering with names like Baltsa, Bumbry, Calvé, Farrar, and Stevens – is enriched by the addition of Elina Garanca.
Garanca is joined by superstar tenor Roberto Alagna, who gives an impassioned and fiery performance as the infatuated and eventually murderous Don José.
The Wiener Zeitung said it all when it observed of Garanca’s Carmen that “the role and the singer are perfectly matched”.
