Label: SOMM Recordings

This delightful disc of favourite – and occasionally unfamiliar – piano music played by pianist Philip Martin fulfils several functions: it is, first and foremost, a collection of ‘personal choice’ encore pieces, some of which are amongst the world’s favourite piano music, with others coming into the unjustly neglected genre, all of which have a special affection in Philip’s comprehensive repertoire. Secondly, we encounter the art of this much-admired Irish musician as a composer, whose own music possesses an individuality and immediacy of appeal that confirms his qualities as a musical communicator to his audience. And finally (although it is not ‘final’!), this exceptionally well-filled CD is released as Philip Martin prepares coincidentally to celebrate his 70th birthday and 50 years in the music profession with a wide-ranging selection that indicates the range and artistry of this truly international musician.

Boniface Ferdinand Leonard "Buddy" DeFranco (February 17, 1923 – December 24, 2014) was an American jazz clarinet player. One of few clarinetists playing bebop, DeFranco was described by critic Scott Yannow as the leading American jazz musician on his instrument from the 1940s until Eddie Daniels came to prominence in the 1980s. In addition to his own work as a bandleader, DeFranco led the Glenn Miller Orchestra for almost a decade in the 1960s and '70s.

Label: Old Maid Entertainment

Digital + CD only bonus track. Not available on LP.
Less than a year after their out-of-nowhere debut LP, J-Zone and Pablo Martin (aka The Du-Rites) return with their sophomore effort, Greasy Listening. The positive response to their 2016 self-titled offering inspired the NYC funk duo to become winter-spring studio rats and churn out 13 new tracks that both pick up where the initial offering left off and explore some uncharted territory. J-Zone (drums, organ, percussion, turntables) continues to deliver funky rhythms and chunky drum sounds, while Pablo (guitar, bass, synthesizer, electric piano) returns with plenty greasy guitar moves and addictive melodies. But where Greasy Listening differs from its predecessor is in its composition and theme.

Label: Naxos | Tracks: 10 | Rls.date: 2017

Based in Leipzig with a lengthy career as principal cellist of the Gewandhaus Orchestra, Julius Klengel was a renowned soloist and revered the world over as a great interpreter and pedagogue, whose works are still in use by students today. Composed in true Romantic style, the three Concertinos were written for teaching purposes, the first coming closest to the idea of a mini-concerto but all having virtuoso elements and expressive and lyrical central movements. The Konzertstück, Op. 10 gives the piano equal status with the cello to create a thrilling conclusion to any programme.

Martin Kemp - L'arte nella storia. 600 a.C. - 2000 d.C.
Italian | 2015 | 229 pages | ISBN: 8833926842 | EPUB | 4 MB

L'arte non è sospesa nel vuoto. Come scriveva T.S. Eliot, "quel che accade quando viene creata una nuova opera d'arte accade simultaneamente anche a tutte le opere che l'hanno preceduta". Ogni tassello che si aggiunge all'immenso patrimonio artistico dell'umanità ridefinisce la storia stessa e mette in prospettiva diversa ciò che era già stato creato. Arte e storia, uomini e capolavori, sono un tutt'uno nel fluire del tempo. Tenendo tutto ciò sempre ben presente, Martin Kemp ha scritto questo impeccabile compendio di storia dell'arte, un'introduzione da cui partire per intuire la complessità della nostra immensa tradizione pittorica e scultorea.
