Although an earlier CD added five previously unissued tracks to the original LP Gerry Mulligan Meets Ben Webster, this Verve Master Edition two-CD set adds just about everything else recorded during the two sessions that produced the original record, and also features 20-bit sound. Even though Gerry Mulligan was outspoken against issuing material omitted from his original recordings, it is a treat to hear how the songs evolved in the studio. Webster and Mulligan seem mutually inspired throughout the sessions, and strong performances by pianist Jimmy Rowles, bassist Leroy Vinnegar, and drummer Mel Lewis are of considerable help.

The 1988 Seoul Olympics hosted what has been described as both "the dirtiest race of all time" and "the greatest track event in history." The unforgettable men’s 100 meter race has become infamous for the elation of breaking a seemingly impossible world record for human speed and for the doping scandal that followed.

Quando C.S. Lewis – uno dei due più celebri membri del gruppo degli Inklings di Oxford (l’altro era Tolkien) – si lanciò, nel corso degli anni Trenta, nella azzardata impresa di scrivere una trilogia di fantascienza metafisica, il mondo non era ancora invaso da miriadi di racconti di guerre stellari. Lewis li anticipò – ma subito andò ben oltre. Di fatto, ciò che più gli stava a cuore non era la creazione di remoti scenari cosmici (nella quale peraltro era maestro), ma qualcosa di più avventuroso: narrare una nuova sfida fra Bene e Male in cui il Bene riesca a vincere in modo plausibile. E qui, nella descrizione della lotta fra l’eroe Ransom e il feroce Weston che vuole corrompere l’innocenza del pianeta abitato dalla Signora Verde, l’acume del teologo si incontra felicemente con l’estro del romanziere. Come in Tolkien, anche in C.S. Lewis la sapienza fabulatoria ha innanzitutto la funzione di svelarci una impalcatura etica e metafisica estremamente salda.

Ben Hur, a Tale of the Christ (Ben Hur, un racconto su Cristo) è uno dei più conosciuti e appassionati romanzi storici della letteratura mondiale, in cui magicamente si intrecciano vicende storiche e favolistiche e da cui sono state tratte celebri pièce teatrali e film indimenticabili. Le sue pagine ci portano indietro nel tempo, fra Roma e la Palestina, negli anni del principato di Augusto e in quelli del regno di Tiberio. Vi si narra la burrascosa storia del principe ebreo Giuda Ben Hur e, parallelamente, quella di Gesù Cristo - il vero protagonista della vicenda - dalla nascita, nella mangiatoia di Betlemme, alla morte, sulla croce del Golgota.

Ein Reitertrupp näherte sich dem Dorfe. Es war ein Gefangener unter der Obhut der Reiter, der bald die Neugierde der Dorfbewohner erregte. Völlig kraftlos und wund an den Füßen, taumelte er mehr als er ging. "Euer Gefangener ist noch jung! Darf ich fragen, was er verbrochen hat?" "Er ist ein Meuchelmörder!" entgegnete der Hauptmann. "Er hätte beinahe in den Straßen Jerusalems den edlen Gratus ermordet, indem er ihm vom Dache eines Palastes - jedenfalls seines Vaters - einen Ziegel auf den Kopf warf." "Hat er ihn getötet?" fragte der Rabbi. "Nein! "Er ist verurteilt?" "Ja, zu den Galeeren auf Lebenszeit. Sein Name ist Ben Hur."

Shortly after the publication of The Theory of Committees and Elections Black started to collect material for papers and a book on Lewis Carroll's theory of proportional representation.

Following his highly acclaimed surveys of the piano works of Beethoven and Schubert, British pianist Paul Lewis turns to the romantic period and Brahms's mighty D minor Piano Concerto. Lewis performed the work across Europe in 2014 and in the US for his New York Philharmonic debut. In a review of that concert, New York Times critic Anthony Tomassini praised Lewis for his, "majestic and insightful performance," adding, "I have seldom heard the contrasting theme, which sounds like an affirming chorale, played with such elegant shaping of inner voices." For this new recording, Lewis is accompanied by Daniel Harding leading the Swedish Radio Symphony Orchestra.
