Volume 2 of EMI's comprehensive Herbert von Karajan centenary edition gathers virtually all of the conductor's operatic and vocal output for the label in one place, taking up 71 CDs (Disc 72 contains complete librettos in the form of PDF files). I use the word "virtually" because the package omits four posthumously issued archival items taped live during the 1957-60 Salzburg Festivals (Beethoven's Missa solemnis, Brahms' German Requiem, Bruckner's Te Deum, and Verdi's Requiem). Otherwise, it's all here.

The singular style of Matthew Herbert initially took shape during the late '90s, when he recorded under a variety of guises to much cult adoration, and before long became one of the most recognizable name-brand producers in the dance music field, well known for his ability to transform everyday sounds into quirky rhythmic material. His affiliation with music began at the young age of four, when he began learning the violin and piano.

Wagner interpretations with Herbert von Karajan and the Berliner Philharmoniker have a quality all of their own. Critics always admired the ability of the musicians to bring out not only Wagner’s luscious sound, but also all the subtleties of the score. Moreover, Karajan was able to rally the singers to successfully convey the lyrical tenderness of Wagner’s heroes despite their vocal powers.

As the repository of the earliest phase of Frank Sinatra's solo career, 1943-1952, Columbia Records is usually thought to be at a disadvantage against the more accomplished work the singer recorded for Capitol Records and his own Reprise imprint. But in two albums released on the same day in 2003, Sinatra Sings Cole Porter and Sinatra Sings Gershwin, Columbia's Legacy division expands on its studio recordings of Sinatra by borrowing airchecks from the collection of Charles L. Granata, and thereby improves its holdings. Sinatra would not seem at first blush to be the ideal interpreter of Porter, if only because his rough-and-tumble background is always visible beneath his careful intonation, while Porter's lyrics are redolent of wealth and comic condescension. But Sinatra sang "Night and Day" in his first solo session in 1942 and went on to perform Porter throughout his career, often achieving near-definitive readings. The ground on which they met was intellectual rather than social: Porter was at heart a wit, and Sinatra understood the jokes, while emphasizing what emotional content there was, giving it a greater sincerity than the songwriter might have intended. This collection effectively mixes a bunch of studio recordings with previously unreleased radio performances that find Sinatra ranging over many different Porter moods.

Filling in a gap in Frank Sinatra's history, Legacy's 2015 box A Voice on Air collects over 100 radio broadcasts recorded between 1935 and 1955. This is the first collection to chronicle this era – over 90 of its 100 tracks are previously unreleased – and it's pulled from a variety of sources, including the Sinatra estate's vaults, the Library of Congress, and the Paley Center for Media, each strand assisting in sterling re-creations of original broadcasts from Frank's bobbysocks days, World War II, and the nascent saloon singer of the '50s. Sinatra wound up singing some of these songs in the studio but not necessarily in these arrangements, a wrinkle that would be tantalizing enough but a good portion of A Voice on Air is devoted to songs he only sang on the air.

With contributions from Hip Hop producer and keyboardist Salaam Remi, Winehouse's amalgam of Jazz, Pop, Soul and Hip Hop received rave reviews.

Ogni infanzia racchiude in sé emozioni, esperienze e impressioni uniche destinate a plasmare irrimediabilmente gli adulti che saremo. Michael lo sa bene, e sa anche che la sua infanzia è stata eccezionale. È cresciuto a Laurel Canyon, sulle verdeggianti colline della Los Angeles degli anni Settanta, circondato dall'affetto delle famiglie dei genitori, legate a doppio filo essendo nate dai matrimoni di due coppie di fratelli. Ma c'è una persona in particolare che ha fatto di un'infanzia fuori dal comune il perfetto materiale per un romanzo di Henry James se avesse vissuto a Hollywood o per un film di Wes Anderson: zia Hank. Harriet Frank Ravetch, detta Hank, è una sceneggiatrice di Hollywood dalla personalità stravagante e magnetica: insieme a suo marito, lo zio Irving, anch'egli sceneggiatore, la donna, che non ha figli, si propone di far conoscere il mondo al nipote prediletto, trasmettendogli il suo punto di vista, il suo gusto, il suo «occhio» - insindacabile, ça va sans dire - per l'arte, la letteratura, gli oggetti e le persone..
