Mark Knopfler's fine soundtrack to the film Metroland nicely evokes the picture's wistful, nostalgic atmosphere. Rounding out the collection are late-'70s classics from Dire Straits ("Sultans of Swing"), Elvis Costello ("Alison") and the Stranglers ("Peaches"), in addition to left-field inclusions like Françoise Hardy's "Tous Les Garcons et Les Filles" and Django Reinhardt's "Blues Clair."…

Al professore che lo interroga, Christopher Lloyd ama rispondere "J'habite Metroland", adoperando il nome di una fermata della storica Metropolitan Line di Londra, "meglio di Eastwick, più esotico di Middlesex", per indicare la sonnacchiosa periferia urbana in cui vive. "Uno abitava in quella zona perché da li era facile andarsene", osserva Chris, che ad andarsene, insieme all'inseparabile amico Toni Barbarowski, come lui sedicenne, come lui francofilo e arrabbiato, come lui appassionato di arte e ragazze, si prepara con metodo. Nel frattempo i due aspiranti flâneurs, fedeli ai dettami dei loro numi tutelari Baudelaire, Gautier e Nerval, cercano modi casalinghi per "épater la bourgeoisie"…

Barbara Bonney's recital of the Schumanns' songs is prefaced, in the booklet-note, with a little feminist homily from the singer defending the reputation of Clara as woman and artist. Clara hardly needs that kind of defence nowadays, witness recent CDs by Skovhus and Stutzmann, plus several others not reviewed in these pages; her songs are far from patronized, let alone neglected. Yet, for all the advocacy of these singers, her inspiration remains for me intermittent, though thoroughly conventional songs are occasionally leavened by notably individual ones, such as, here, her very last and unpublished song, Loreley, which vividly conjures up that dangerous creature, particu lady in the hectic piano part, evocatively played by Ashkenazy. Indeed it seems that Heine most inspired her, as "Sic liebten sich beide" from her Op. 13 provoked a setting of economically intense meaning, to which Bonney finely responds.
