"This Grammy winner, one of the most successful versions of Puccini's final opera, offers Nilsson's first recording of the title character, and Bjoerling's last operatic portrayal on disc, including a heroic, for-the-ages "Nessun dorma". The extraordinary orchestration, befitting a story set in ancient China, benefits from the new DSD remastering."

Active in Venice and Padua at the beginning of the 15th century, Johannes Ciconia was undoubtedly the most important composer of this transitional period. Born in Liège and trained in the principles of the French and Italian Ars Nova, he played a considerable role in the musical development that led little by little towards the Renaissance.

Oxmo Puccino's 1998 debut, Opéra Puccino, was produced almost entirely by DJ Mars, who evidently gleans inspiration from Pete Rock and DJ Premier. His alternately sensitive and rugged beats are a fitting backdrop for the French-language MC’s low-profile yet tense flow. “Mensongeur” is a surprising dancefloor diversion, where Puccino is pitched somewhere between Notorious B.I.G. and Mase.

If there ever were a testament to Ray Davies' stubbornness and ornery perversity, it's Soap Opera. Released after the draining, two-part, hopelessly muddled rock opera Preservation, Soap Opera is the grandest concept album the Kinks ever made. Davies' tackled a topic that seemed manageable compared to Preservation – how "Ordinary People" escape the doldrums with dreams of stardoms – but conceived the production as a bit of a radio play, with prominent guest vocalists and narration. Improbably, it feels larger, campier, more excessive than Preservation, even if it's considerably more focused and consistent.

Il Rosso: un ragazzo dai capelli ramati, sensuale e crudele. Un ragazzo perfetto. Un ragazzo che non esiste. Edward lo sogna da quando era bambino: il compagno immaginario di un’infanzia solitaria. Rowan lo odia perché Edward sembra amarlo più di ogni altra cosa. Ma cosa cerca davvero Edward nel Rosso, quali incubi sta tentando di fuggire? E perché Rowan non riesce a smettere di ritrarre un soggetto che in realtà detesta? Ambientato fra i grattacieli di Manhattan e una villa maledetta a Long Island, il romanzo racconta il percorso che Edward e Rowan dovranno compiere per sigillare nella tela di un quadro il legame che li unisce…
