Per Vani fare la ghostwriter è il lavoro ideale. Non solo perché così può scrivere nel chiuso della sua casa, in compagnia dei libri e lontano dal resto dell'umanità per la quale non ha una grande simpatia. Ma soprattutto perché può sfruttare al meglio il suo dono di capire al volo le persone, di emulare i loro gesti, di anticipare i loro pensieri, di ricreare perfettamente il loro stile di scrittura. Una empatia innata che il suo datore di lavoro sa come sfruttare al meglio. Lui sa che solo Vani è in grado di mettersi nei panni di uno dei più famosi autori viventi di thriller del mondo. E non importa se le chiede di scrivere una storia che nulla ha a che fare con i padri del genere giallo che lei adora da Dashiell Hammett a Ian Fleming passando per Patricia Highsmith. Vani è comunque la migliore. Tanto che la polizia si è accorta delle sue doti intuitive e le ha chiesto di collaborare..

This album of Handel vocal selections should delight the listener with its clear, bell-like soprano and its period orchestra, its Handelian melismas and reverential songs to God. Soprano Dorothea Craxton sings with such a beautiful, creamy sound and smooth technique that one does not hear her breaths. However, this album disappoints for the sole reason that the recording quality is off-balance, often relegating Craxton to sound like a member of the ensemble as opposed to soloist (or being overpowered by one of the ensemble).

Rivals’ - David Hansen’s debut recording for SONY / DHM explores and celebrates the music of Farinelli and his castrato rivals: Caffarelli, Carestini, Bernacchi and others. These singers dominated the stages of Europe and it was not always Farinelli who reigned supreme… David Hansen’s album features nine world premiere recordings. He is accompanied by Alessandro de Marchi and his orchestra Academia Montis Regalis. Recorded at the famous Academia at Mondovì in Piemont with Alessandro de Marchi and the musicians of the prestigious Academia Montis Regalis, the choice of arias demonstrates the remarkable breadth of David Hansen’s phenomenal technique, his musical versatility and expression.

When we look good, the great majority of the first operas in the history of music in the early seventeenth century, took out about the characters of mythology: Dafne, Euridice, Orfeo. And that was just the start of a great tradition, Handel did not fail to continue a century later. This album of virtuoso soprano Christiane Karg and mezzo-soprano Romina Basso looks at many Handelian incursions in mythology, which gave rise to lavish and hyper-virtuoso arias and duets in works - operas but also cantatas - such as Semele, Hercules, he Parnasso in festa, Apollo e Dafne and others, is sung in Italian or English. These are mostly works of the great London maturity, except the cantata Escheggiate 1710 in London certainly written already but in a kind Italianate Handel had brought in luggage after his long stay in Italy. Both singers are accompanied by the Amsterdam ensemble Il Complesso Barocco, accustomed to great work of Handel.

Quando compriamo una maglietta o un pantalone per poche decine di euro nei negozi di noti marchi di abbigliamento a basso costo, dobbiamo sapere che il prezzo esposto non è mai il prezzo giusto. In realtà, sono "affari" che paghiamo molto cari. Perché ci riempiamo l'armadio di capi usa e getta e perché indossiamo tessuti di bassa qualità, sempre più artificiali e meno naturali, tinti chissà come e chissà dove, che si usurano facilmente, prodotti a getto continuo per rifornire le boutique ogni settimana di nuovi arrivi. In Cina, paese da cui arriva la maggior parte dei vestiti, ci sono distretti appositi, dove lo smog riduce la visibilità a pochi metri. Basso prezzo non vuol dire solo bassa qualità, ma anche bassi salari: quelli che percepiscono gli addetti negli Stati in cui le fabbriche sono state delocalizzate, che sono fortemente sfruttati..
