Set in the Greek highlands, the story presents a violent, domineering man who deals in the trafficking of emigrants and young, Balkan prostitutes.

The man also wishes to prostitute his young son, the immature Christos, who is dominated by his father's violence and engages in suicidal behavior. There is a special bond between brother and sister, who have only each other, yet no one admits this. Fanny falls apart day by day but the father maintains his reign as Christos, however, resists. "But in the kingdom of the father, the last word belongs to the king,"

There are many, many good things about Andrew Parrott and the Taverner Consort and Players' Bach performances – their luminous colors, complete clarity, utter lucidity, and structural integrity – that there is an uneasy feeling in criticizing them for their occasional flaws. When Parrott's Bach is good, it is as great as any that has been recorded in the past 20 years. It's as great as Leonhardt's, Koopman's, or Herreweghe's, and far better than Gardiner's, Harnoncourt's, or Rilling's. And Parrott's Bach is so great in the great pieces – so great in the overwhelming dramatic intensity of the close of his Saint John Passion and so great in the mystery, agony, and ecstasy of the central choral triptych in his Mass in B minor – that his performances seem very, very great indeed.

Christopher Catherwood - Perché il mondo combatte nel nome di Dio? Jihad, crociate, terrorismo: tredici secoli di guerre sante (2008)
Italian | Newton | 2008 | EPUB/PDF | Pages 201 | ISBN: 8854112550 | 6 Mb

Cristiani contro musulmani. Sunniti contro sciiti. Cattolici contro protestanti. Perché il mondo combatte nel nome di Dio? Le guerre religiose, e in particolare lo scontro fra civiltà, sono da sempre appartenute alla storia dell’uomo, come se nel genere umano fosse presente una tendenza innata a combattere e distruggere se stessi e gli altri in nome di una fede. Dalla prima jihad nel VII secolo, all’indomani della nascita della religione islamica, alle crociate cristiane del Medioevo; dalle guerre connesse alla Riforma protestante fino al terrorismo settario dei giorni nostri e alla risposta dell’antiterrorismo, Christopher Catherwood ricostruisce accuratamente la storia della guerra santa, la complessità e la molteplicità di aspetti di un argomento che ha diviso e continua a dividere l’opinione pubblica. Il risultato è un’analisi esaustiva del rapporto tra la violenza del passato e i conflitti contemporanei, che rivela lo sconvolgente legame tra guerra e religione.

The companion release to the quiet-moments compilation TENDER, Wishbone Ash collection TOUGH represents the more hard-rocking side of this stalwart British band. Wishbone Ash made their name in the 1970s with their dueling guitars and epic tunes, but TOUGH features a number of latter-day selections from the long-lived band, proving that as the decades went on, they managed to retain that hard-rock bite that had always endeared them to their legions of fans.

British rockers Wishbone Ash gained fame in the 1970s for their twin-guitar attack and captivating blend of hard rock and progressive stylings. TENDER is a collection of tunes that showcase the softer side of the band's musical personality, including a number of latter-day tracks. Acoustic-tinged balladry and dynamics that veer towards the low end of the spectrum are the order of the day here, but if you want the harder stuff, check out this disc's companion release, entitled (what else?) TOUGH.

With a history going back to 1971, Rebekka had a lot of time to become the refined and unique progressive they were. A Bavarian combo, starting with heavy rock, moving on to folk and Indian ragas in the mid-1970's, becoming Rebekka proper in 1977. Having female vocals (sometimes in English, sometimes in German) and taking on influences of classical and folk musics, like early Renaissance, as well as ethnic and Indian musics, their debut Phoenix sounded like a symphonic progressive twist on early Hölderlin. In demand for theatre productions and such like, Rebekka were off the scene for some time, until Phoenix was rediscovered and gained a repress.

"The Slip" is the seventh studio album by American industrial rock band Nine Inch Nails. It was the fourth consecutive Nine Inch Nails release to be produced by frontman Trent Reznor with collaborators Atticus Ross and Alan Moulder. "The Slip" was originally intended to be an EP, but eventually grew to be a full-length album. Critical reception of the album has been generally favorable, and its unorthodox method of release attracted significant media attention. The album peaked at number 13 on the Billboard 200.
