Ever been curious to hear a musical setting of Keats's "Ode on a Grecian Urn"? Well here's your chance. It's the second movement of Holst's First Choral Symphony (although he called it "First," there was never a second). You know the poem: "Beauty is truth and truth, beauty…." This is a highly enjoyable piece, and in sections of the first and third movement, the composer of The Planets makes some sounds that recall his most popular work. But there's much more to Holst than space music. He was a master at writing for chorus, his word setting always highly colorful and never stiff or "Victorian" sounding. This performance is the best available, so if you're intrigued, go for it.

Co-chief conductors Riccardo Minasi and Maxim Emelyanychev take turns on the podium leading this period-instrument band in a rousing collection of concertos by Haydn. Il Pomo d'Oro has been hailed "a wonderful ensemble, and Minasi an outstanding musician" capable of "bringing the house down with his virtuosity" (The Guardian). Emelyaychev's award-winning harpsichord joins Minasi's violin in the soloists' spotlight, along with the distinguished natural horn of Johannes Hinterholzer. The concertos are complemented by Haydn's Symphony No 83 (known as The Hen, because of the ‘clucking’ figures on the strings in its second movement) and his Keyboard Fantasia Hob.XVII:4.

The Finnish progressive rock appreciation and fan society Colossus has been making a rather good name for itself in recent years, ever since it started issuing a line of project releases back in 2000. In collaboration with the legendary French record label Musea, more than a dozen concepts have been conceived, executed and issued. The first of these projects was named "Tuonen Tytär", a double CD featuring tributes to various Finnish artists from the golden age of progressive rock. Come 2009 and the second instalment of this particular project,"Tuonen Tytär" is at hand, a massive 3 CD box set, and as customary with a Colossus project production, a large, informative booklet…

The works on this 2-CD set all come from a single source: a document called "Cancionero de Montecassino" which is believed to contain works composed between 1430 and 1480. Somehow the document has survived down through the centuries; it was almost lost when the Abbey where it was stored was bombed in 1944. Luckily the document survived so that this amazing CD set could be recorded by the - also amazing - Le Capella Reial de Catalunya. This CD is the second in a series entitled "Musicas Reales", the first of which being "Carlos V" containing works mainly from the 16th century. If you enjoyed that one, then "Alfons V el Magnanim" will be a welcome addition to your CD spinner.

Animali e piante, maghi e streghe, folletti, fate e minifate, stelle e comete, maestre e scolari, nonni e nipotini abitano queste fiabe in versi che Michelina Giraudo ha scritto per i bambini. La sua fantasia è stata stimolata dalle esperienze vissute nell’infanzia. D’inverno, quando le sere si facevano lunghe, le famiglie si riunivano nelle stalle, calde e accoglienti, dove le mamme lavoravano ai ferri, la nonna filava e qualcuno raccontava fiabe e storie, raccontava e raccontava fino a quando i bambini si addormentavano…

Parlando di Joseph Cornell, uno degli artisti che più amava, Parise addita nel «colpo d’occhio» la chiave del suo sistema interpretativo. Ma proprio la capacità di racchiudere in un dettaglio la segreta morfologia di un personaggio è la qualità che più colpisce in questi scritti, dove Parise ci parla soprattutto degli autori e dei libri che per lui hanno contato (con «incursioni ingiustificate» nel mondo dell’arte, della pittura e del cinema). E ogni volta abbiamo l’impressione che in quel dettaglio di somma densità precipiti in maniera definitiva ciò che volevamo sapere…
