VA - Christmas In Vienna [Sony Classical SK 53358] {Europe 1993}

VA - Christmas In Vienna
FLAC, EAC, LOG & CUE | Lossless Artwork | Size: 498 MB
Label/Cat#: Sony Classical SK 53358 | Country/Year: Europe 1993
Genre: Christmas | Hoster: Filesonic/Uploaded/Filepost

Christmas in Vienna is almost like a live Three Tenors album, only with Diana Ross taking the place of Luciano Pavarotti. That alone makes for quite a change, since Ross' style of singing is decidedly different from Pavarotti's, but she acquits herself well. Of course, it helps that she is supported by a wonderful assembly of musicians, from Jose Carreras and Placido Domingo to producer Michel Glotz and arrangers Lalo Schifrin…
Kiri Sings Gershwin (Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, New Princess Theater Orchestra, John McGlinn)

Kiri Sings Gershwin (Dame Kiri Te Kanawa, New Princess Theater Orchestra, John McGlinn) [1990]
EAC Rip | FLAC, TRACKS+CUE, LOG | Covers | 1cd, 317 MB
Classical | Label: Warner Classics | Catalog Number: D 170258 | TT: 46’05

Original arrangements of Gershwin tunes are rare these days, but that's what you'll hear in this album by Kiri Te Kanawa. Granted, the arrangements sound somewhat dated according to 21st century tastes, but that's what makes them fascinating. These were like nothing anyone else was writing when the George and Ira first brought them to life. Kiri uses a different, somewhat breathier voice than you might be used to on her classical albums, probably not the type of voice Gershwin had in mind, but I think it generally works pretty well.

Strange Cargo III (1993). Strange Cargo III is the fourth album by electronic instrumentalist William Orbit. The album matches elegant sequencer trance and understated organic instruments (piano, guitar) with ethnic-fusion and soft house rhythms. It's the only Strange Cargo record featuring vocals, with Beth Orton making an early appearance (more earth mother than neo-folky) on the beautiful ambient-trance single "Water From a Vine Leaf." "Into the Paradise" and "The Story of Light" are variations on the same form, while Orbit borrows from hip-hop and dub for "Time to Get Wize," with the toasting of Divine Bashim. While still tied to the '80s Fourth World aesthetic of its predecessors, on Strange Cargo III Orbit begins moving toward a more completely electronic form of music in keeping with the productions of his Guerilla label…

Constance Demby is one of the few representatives of the New Age movement (in both her music and her personal philosophies) who consistently creates artistic, highly expressive compositions. Demby was trained in classical music as a child, and her artistic spirit led her to also master several other art forms; at the University of Michigan, she studied painting, sculpture, and music. It was her work as a sculptor that led her to new dimensions of sound. As she was torching a sheet of metal, it roared thunderously, and thus was born the Sonic Steel Instruments: the Whale Sail, and the Space Bass, enormous bowed instruments with deep archetypal resonances.
