Des vies à écrire - David Lodge
French | 2014 | 250 Pages | ISBN: 2743629312 | EPUB | 236.21 KB

Dans L'Auteur ! L'Auteur ! ou Un homme de tempérament, David Lodge explorait la personnalité et les failles d'écrivains majeurs. Il poursuit cette quête avec Des vies à écrire, série de portraits qui sont autant de voyages dans l'intimité de Graham Greene, Muriel Spark ou H. G. Wells. L'écrivain est-il un homme ou une femme comme les autres face aux tragédies ordinaires que sont la vieillesse, la solitude ou l'oubli ?
Au-delà, c'est le biographe lui-même, cet enquêteur passionné remontant le cours d'une vie, qui intéresse David Lodge. Il pose en filigrane la question au coeur de tout travail d'écriture : peut-on pleinement saisir la vérité d'un destin ?

David I. Kertzer - Il patto col diavolo: Mussolini e Papa Pio XI le relazioni segrete fra il Vaticano e l'Italia fascista (2014)
Italian | Rizzoli | 2014 | PDF | Pages 555 | ASIN: B00IUGH266 | 5.8 MB

I rapporti tra il Vaticano e il fascismo sono da sempre oggetto di controversia. Da una parte quanti sostengono che la Chiesa sia stata una ferma oppositrice del Duce, dall’altra quanti ritengono che invece lo abbia appoggiato in materia determinante. Dopo l’apertura, nel 2006, degli Archivi vaticani, nuovi documenti permettono di approfondire il dipanarsi delle relazioni tra Pio XI e Benito Mussolini, due uomini arrivati insieme al potere, nel 1922, e i cui destini resteranno legati a doppio filo. Spie, traditori, carte segrete e scandali taciuti rivelano una storia di opportunismi, di interessi talvolta convergenti – a partire dalla comune e ferrea lotta contro il comunismo – ma anche di riluttanze, insofferenze e duelli all’arma bianca.

As one-third of the composer-collective Bang on a Can, David Lang is something of a genial father figure of the indie-classical scene. Talk to any of the world's main players and you're likely to hear them tell you about their life-changing stint in Bang on a Can's summer festival, which has acted as a sort of feeder school and incubator for the group's try-anything mentality. Lang's music has undergone many stylistic shifts over the years: In the 80s, he wrote bristlier stuff, but in the last decade or so, he's shifted quietly into a more pensive register. The Little Match Girl Passion, his 2008 work that won him a Pulitzer, was written for only four voices and some hand bells. This Was Written By Hand, his most recent recording, is a collection of short solo piano works played by the British pianist Andrew Zolinsky. The album holds the same, sustained melancholy mood: thoughtful, searching, elegiac, minimalist. Lang's way with repetitive phrasing doesn't feel like that of minimalists like Glass or Reich's, though.

This recording is the World Premiere of Charles Koechlin's Jungle Book and received the Orchestral Gramophone Award and was, memorably, accepted by the son of the composer. Charles Koechlin loved Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book and set different parts of the book to music at various points in his career. The first of these - The Three Poems - bear the titles: Seal Lullaby, Night Song in the Jungle and Song of Kala Nag, with texts from The Jungle Book. The music, scored during 1904 - 04, is exotic and evocative. The lullaby mimics the gently lapping of waves as the soprano and chorus spin a soothing tapestry of sound. The Night-Song in the Jungle had a cadence that suggests movement (sung by the soprano, tenor, baritone and chorus) and is a song of well-wishing to the animals of the night. The Song of Kala Nag is a lament of an elephant that has been tamed for his old life in the jungle, sung by the tenor. The poem describes a night in the year when all of the elephants gather to dance together and, rather than being somber, the music is triumphant as the elephant recounts his past freedom and vows to have it again.

Although it was Donizetti’s first theatrical success, the original 1822 version of this violent love story was never given a complete performance because the tenor cast in the role of the hero died shortly before the first night. Even so, Donizetti quickly adapted this role for a mezzo-soprano, achieving his first theatrical success. Opera Rara presents the world premiere of the original tenor version. In addition the recording includes six more pieces written for the 1824 revival.

Da sempre il Mediterraneo - il «mare fra le terre» - è stato un crocevia di popoli, culture, lingue, religioni, che ne hanno fatto il cuore pulsante del Vecchio Mondo. A segnare la storia del «grande mare», il nome con cui era noto nella tradizione ebraica, non sono stati, secondo lo storico britannico David Abulafia, il clima, i venti o le correnti, ma gli uomini (navigatori, mercanti, missionari, condottieri, crociati, pellegrini, pirati), che, mettendo in contatto le regioni più remote di questo vasto bacino, lo hanno reso «forse il più dinamico luogo di interazione tra società diverse sulla faccia del pianeta».
