The first fully-staged productions of the LA Opera House groundbreaking Recovered Voices project, highlighting the works of composers affected by the Holocaust. A double bill of one-act operas: Viktor Ullmann's Der zerbrochene Krug, taken from a comedy by the Romantic German poet Heinrich von Kleist, and Alexander Zemlinsky's Der Zwerg, based on Oscar Wilde's powerful tragedy The Birthday of the Infanta. The music of Alexander Zemlinsky and Viktor Ullmann remained buried for decades in the wake of the destruction wrought by the policies of the Nazi regime. Dozens of composers and thousands of compositions are still largely unknown to musicians and lovers of classical music and opera.
Although he is chiefly known as a popular German television actor, Manfred Krug has also had careers as a film actor and as a pop-jazz singer. Born in Duisburg on February 8, 1937, he relocated to East Germany in 1949 at the age of 13, where he worked in a steel factory until he began acting on stage and in films in 1956. He recorded several successful pop-jazz albums in the early '70s, often in conjunction with composer Gunther Fischer.
After eight years in New York and numerous travels around the world, her music degree in the pocket, the Californian singer Shola Adisa-Farrar anchored to Paris to give birth to this album: his personal exploration of jazz. At his side, the Parisian pianist Florian Pellissier, knewn for its authenticity and so personal way to live the legacy hard bop. Their collaboration began in the summer of 2013. "Florian's experience and vision typically French jazz coupled with my curiosity for jazz and many forms of music that inspired me the soul, reggae and African rhythms helped create an album at the crossroads of our two worlds, says Shola Adisa-Farrar.
Continuing to work with Conny Plank, who once again provides a compelling job as producer and engineer, Kraftwerk went right ahead and named their new album after their two remaining members – an understandable enough move. Like the first two albums, Ralf and Florian still has not seen official re-release, for all that one can practically taste Kraftwerk's leap into the beyond on it. Given that this was the last album before the most famous lineup was formed and Autobahn was released, it's appropriate to listen to Ralf and Florian as a harbinger for the future, though perhaps all too easy. Take it on its own terms – a further investigation of electronic possibilities in a more open-ended, less constantly structured fashion than would be the case later – and Ralf and Florian becomes most enjoyable.
Cet ouvrage est la première tentative de présenter une analyse approfondie et synthétisant des théories phénoménologique de Marc Richir. L’étude compare systématiquement son œuvre avec celle d’Edmund Husserl, et montre que la phénoménologie richirienne se présente comme une phénoménologie ‘transcendantale génétique’ qui se développe en dialogue avec Husserl, dont les écrits donnent presque toujours son point de départ problématique et méthodologique. L’auteur établi que la phénoménologie richirienne est, en soi, une refondation globale et systématique de la phénoménologie…
Alba is the premiere recording of trumpeter Markus Stockhausen’s duo with pianist Florian Weber, a formation in existence for some six years now. Though very different in their connections to the language of jazz, both musicians share a deep interest in the process of creative expression: of looking inwards and outwards with intensity at things, for echoes, resonances, insights. Initially, the duo experimented with electronic sounds, also to create the “opening sounds” that have attracted Stockhausen since he first played with Rainer Brüninghaus’s trio in the early 1980s.
