The Dmitri Ensemble under Graham Ross performs Shostakovich's String Quartets Nos. 1, 8 and 10, re-worked as thrilling Chamber Symphonies for string orchestra by his pupil and advocate, Rudolf Barshai. Written in Dresden 1960, Shostakovich was sent there to compose a film score but was overwhelmed by the aftermath of WWII bombings which he saw; the result was the 8th quartet.

Who would have thought that the principal source for the music of Padre Antonio Soler was still waiting to be discovered? The manuscript acquired by the Morgan Library of New York in 2011 has proved to be the richest extant collection of sonatas by Soler; 29 of them are unpublished. For his first recording on harmonia mundi, the young harpsichordist Diego Ares reminds us of the powerful impression the composer made on a grandee of Spain in 1765: ‘Fray Antonio Soler produces finer sonatas from day to day.’ Listening to this disc, one cannot but agree: each sonata is indeed a world unto itself.

Giovanni Paolo Colonna (1637-1695) was a native of Bologna and the music director of one of its major churches, dedicated to San Petronio, where he presided over a rich culture of sacred music distinguished by participation from names now far better known to us such as Torelli, Bononcini and Giovanni Gabrieli.

Though participants in the "authentic performance practice" movement might insist otherwise, the search for the old is really a search for the new. This statement certainly captures the spirit that Dutch keyboardist Gustav Leonhardt brought to his early music performances in the 1950s. His style was characterized not by a rigorous observance of rules, but by the intuitive, almost spiritual connection it tried to establish with the music a kind of authenticity that sought validation not so much from a rigorously academic accuracy (though Leonhardt is by no means historically careless) as from its having an "authentic" effect on the listener.

Quelle mouche teutonne a donc piqué Emmanuel Chabrier ? En novembre 1880, à son retour d’un Tristan et Isolde à Munich, cet enragé du wagnérisme (comme ses amis Vincent d’Indy, Charles Lamoureux, Stéphane Mallarmé, etc.) démissionne de son emploi au Ministère de l’Intérieur et ne veut plus être que compositeur.

Only 21 years-old when this recording was made, Rémi Geniet offers us a fascinating portrait of Bach on the piano. From the virtuosity of the early works like the Toccata to the supreme mastery of the dance suites (Partita and English Suite), the drama and brio of Bach's keyboard music can vie with that of operas or concertos.

Federico Rampini - L'età del caos. Viaggio nel grande disordine mondiale (2015)
Italian | 2015 | ISBN 9788852067891 | 372 pages | PDF | 5 MB

L'Età del Caos descrive le linee di frattura che attraversano il mondo in cui viviamo e le forze che lo stanno riplasmando, dalla geopolitica all'economia, dall'ambiente alla crisi delle democrazie, dalla rivoluzione tecnologica al ruolo delle potenze emergenti, su tutte Cina e India. C'è una sorta di seduzione del Caos, come principio dinamico e risorsa strategica. Da una parte ci sono le classi dirigenti, i governanti, irrimediabilmente radicati nel passato e incapaci di capire il futuro. Dall'altra le nuove élite, i veri protagonisti dei prossimi decenni: guerriglieri e, per ragioni opposte, creatori di start-up vedono nell'instabilità la loro grande chance. Tanto che nella Silicon Valley il vocabolo più in voga è disruptive, cioè dirompente, distruttivo. Appena smetti di esserlo, e ti siedi sugli allori, sei finito. Dietro di te un altro giovane assatanato sta preparando la tua rovina.
