Un resoconto ampio e dettagliato della potente rete di finanziamenti di illustri esponenti e organi della cultura europea messa in piedi dalla CIA dopo la seconda guerra mondiale. Dopo i due decenni dei fascismi e della guerra, la stragrande maggioranza degli intellettuali europei erano su posizioni critiche anticapitaliste. Per contrastare il richiamo del comunismo e la crescita del peso elettorale delle sinistre, la CIA non risparmiò né uomini né risorse finanziarie. Per quel che riguarda la musica e la composizione musicale spiccarono il festival “Capolavori del Ventesimo Secolo”, tenuto a Parigi nel 1952, a cui fu invitata una teoria infinita di musicisti e compositori, da Igor Stravinsky a Claude Debussy

Carl Maria von Weber's piano music, with the exception of Invitation to the Dance, is not nearly as well known as his operas, but it deserves more attention. Michael Endres makes a strong case for the music in this two-disc set. The most significant works, the four sonatas, are full of drama, colorful pianism, and lyrical melodies, particularly in Endres' hands. The sonatas are on a similar scale to those of Beethoven and Schubert, with the drama built of sharp contrasts in key, humor, and dynamics, and with beautiful, cantabile slow movements. Weber, like Beethoven, also took advantage of the size and scope of the piano's sound. Endres vividly brings out the drama and the brilliance of virtuosic passages, while maintaining a sense of refinement and ease with the music. The waltzes are particularly polished, but Endres' also recognizes their folk elements and gives them a wonderful energy and sparkle. The showpieces of Weber's piano works are the sets of variations, obviously written to impress audiences. Again, Endres handles the technical challenges easily and cleanly. In the second set here, the Variations on the aria "Vien'qua dorina bella," he is always aware that the theme was originally a vocal work, playing with song-like phrasing and coloring. The sound of the recording could be a little richer, but it doesn't hurt Endres superb performance.

A portrait, on the tercentenary of the composer's birth, of Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (1714-1788), probably the most gifted of the sons of Johann Sebastian Bach. Highly admired in his own century by Haydn, Gluck and Mozart, he stands out today as a brilliant and highly original composer. For CPE Bach, music had to be an expression of personal feelings and to achieve his aim, he revolutionised the established principles of form, harmony and rhythm.
