"La fine arriva presto, arriva in un giorno così bello che quasi non te l'aspetti. Vorrei che ci fosse il suo viso sopra di me, ma non c'è niente. Non arriverà in tempo, non potrò neanche salutarla. Arriva la fine e sono da solo, e posso soltanto chiamarla. So che sopravviverà, lei è più forte di me. Lei è sempre stata più forte. Mi attraversa la testa il suo sorriso, l'idea di quello che avremmo potuto essere e non siamo mai stati."

French composers of the seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries delighted in adorning their pieces with foreign, in particular, Italian, elements, often calling attention to them in the titles. Among the most subtle transalpine stylists was Francois Couperin, who was refining the ‘French style’ and publishing his legacy in the form of harpsichord and chamber music. His contemporary, Marin Marais, contributed his own subtle essay in the exotic, a “Suitte d’un gout etranger” published in his Fourth Book of Pieces de une et a trois viole (1717), nearly 30 years after his First Book (the epitome of French viol playing) had appeared.

La vita di Tony Webster è stata un fiume relativamente tranquillo, da costeggiare al riparo di scelte ragionevoli e sistematici oblii. Ora però la lettera di un avvocato che gli annuncia un'inattesa quanto enigmatica eredità sommuove il termitaio poroso del passato, e il tempo irrompe nella noia del presente sotto forma di parole risalenti all'adolescenza, quando Tony procedeva all'educazione morale, sentimentale e sessuale che ne avrebbe fatto, inavvertitamente come spesso accade, l'adulto che è…

This recording gathers four string quartets by American composers who are widely divergent in style and manner, and who have made a distinctive and personal contribution to this endlessly re-inventive format. Ralph Evans is more familiar as a performer than composer. Finally completed in 1995, his First String Quartet is written in a non-derivative style, with tuneful melodies, lively counterpoint and piquant harmonies. Philip Glass has completed five mature quartets, his Second Quartet deriving from a theatrical presentation of Samuel Beckett’s prose poem Company. The self-styled ‘bad boy of American music’, George Antheil wrote three string quartets, the third of which is permeated by a folk-music ambience. Best remembered for his film scores, Bernard Herrmann had not released a concert work for 25 years when he wrote Echoes. Its title applies to the thematic connections unobtrusively linking the ten sections of this one-movement piece.

The second album by Dracma contains an excellent collection of modern Progressive rock music, between MarIllion, Genesis and especially IQ. This Spanish band knows how to recreate in its climates and lyrics the tumultuous and meditative feeling of Peter Nicholls' band. The alternation of very quiet acoustic tracks and heavier or floating sequences allows the band to show its full talent.

In nearly every respect this is outstanding. The Rondo brillant and the Fantasie, both written for the virtuoso duo of Karl von Bocklet and Josef Slawik, can sound as if Schubert were striving for a brilliant, flashy style, foreign to his nature. Both are in places uncomfortable to play (when first published, the Fantasie’s violin part was simplified), but you would never guess this from Faust’s and Melnikov’s performance; they both nonchalantly toss off any problem passages as though child’s play. The Fantasie’s finale and the Rondo brillant are irresistibly lively and spirited, and this duo’s technical finesse extends to more poetic episodes – Melnikov’s tremolo at the start of the Fantasie shimmers delicately, while the filigree passagework in the last of the variations that form the Fantasie’s centrepiece have a delightful poise and sense of ease.

Una vela lascia la luminosa Tangeri per risalire la costa atlantica d'Europa e inoltrarsi sulla Senna verso Parigi, gelido borgo sperduto fra oscure contrade. Siamo nell'estate del 999, nel cuore di un continente selvaggio e in fermento per l'approssimarsi del fatidico Anno Mille. Il ricco mercante ebreo Ben-Atar, in compagnia delle due mogli, è in viaggio per raggiungere il nipote Raphael Abulafia, ex socio d'affari, e la sua nuova moglie, una askhenazita che disapprova la bigamia del mercante maghrebino. Un duplice processo dovrà giudicare Ben-Atar, ma una parziale soluzione, inaspettata e drammatica, avverrà solo nel dolore e nella morte. Due realtà inconciliabili - la solare sensualità del Sud e l'austero rigore europeo - vengono a conflitto, incarnandosi in due modi differenti di vivere, in due diversi codici di comportamento all'interno di una fede comune.
