It's hard to think of a twentieth century Czech-language opera that has enjoyed more success than Leos Janácek's Jenufa, and there is certainly no shortage of good recordings of it. Among the most exceptional is this effort for Decca led by Charles Mackerras. Elisabeth Söderström is riveting in her portrayal of the small-town girl desperate that the empty-headed Steva, played by Petr Dvorský, will marry her and legitimize their child.

Natalie Schwaabe & Jan Philip Schulze - Piccolo Works (2017)
Classical | MP3 CBR 320 kbps | Digital Booklet | 01:07:36 | 161 MB
Label: Metier

This fabulous new album, co-produced with Bavarian Radio, presents top German piccolo virtuoso Natalie Schwaabe in an international program of recent works for ‘the screaming twig’ as the instrument is sometimes known in orchestral circles. No screaming here, though the instrument’s upper stratospheric registers are fully exploited – these works are modern and freely composed but will still be attractive to conservative listeners with elements of traditional tonality and jazz and utilizing the middle and lower ranges of the piccolo which can be ethereal and smooth. The range of pieces is wide, from the somber ‘Lachrymose’ for solo piccolo, to the bright and buzzy sonata by Gyöngyösi, and the new setting of The Pied Piper story by Kanefzky.

Um das Ende vorwegzunehmen: Die Suche war erfolgreich. Jan Sievers ist angekommen. In einer neuen Heimat. 2010 hatte der Singer-Songwriter seinen ersten Hit.

Udo Lindenberg, Jennifer Rostock und Gunter Gabriel mitspielten, avancierte binnen kürzester Zeit mit weit über 1,8 Millionen Klicks zum YouTube-Hit. Es folgte das Album Abgeliebt . Weitere Singles kamen, Konzerte, TV-Auftritte. Doch dann zog der Künstler den Stecker.

6 panel digipak with a matte laminate finish featuring artwork by Hannah Bertram and art direction by David Sylvian* At last fall's Punkt Festival-one of the world's premiere get-togethers of improvising and adventurous musicians, an audio installation by David Sylvian filled the space, and the opening night celebration brought poets and musicians into the mix: the acclaimed Norwegian poets Paal-Helge Haugen and Nils Christian Moe Repstad read alongside Evan Parker and Arve Henriksen, and their works were read in English by Sylvian, whose recorded voice was accompanied by John Tilbury, Philip Jeck, and Sidsel Endresen.

Jan-Michael Vincent: Edge of Greatness [Audiobook] by David Grove
English | December 5th, 2017 | ASIN: B077MZWKY5, ISBN: 1538503441 | MP3@64 kbps | 5 hrs | 137.82 MB
Narrator: Nat Segaloff

With his chiseled features, effortless screen presence, otherworldly vitality, and striking blue eyes, Jan-Michael Vincent seemed destined for superstardom. However, the real Jan-Michael Vincent was a reluctant sex symbol plagued by doubt and low self-confidence, a perpetual misfit doomed to alcoholism.

Genre: Jazz, Fusion

Here Garbarek is approaching the extremes of his style, appearing once again with the Jan Garbarek Group. He has his usual stark, meditative pieces, interspersed with some cutting-edge work, occasionally spinning just enough out of control to be exciting. And in other places he ventures headlong into the syrupy fields of Kenny G.-land. All pieces on this record are titled after quotes from poems by Tomas Transtromer, and though the actual connection to these poems remains tenuous at best, they do add a provocative element to the pieces themselves, which beg for at least some programmatic interpretation. Excellent bass work by Eberhard Weber, particularly on the more avant-garde pieces (e.g., "The Crossing Place" and "One Day in March I Go Down to the Sea and Listen"). Multi-instrumentalist David Torn is primarily responsible for the more aggressive edge this record takes.

Genre: Classical | Label: Naxos | Catalog: 8.572681

Evencio Castellanos is one of Venezuela's best-known composers, notable not least as one of the groundwork-makers for that country's much-lauded "sistema" of music education. This album presents some of his best-known works, idiomatically and enthusiastically performed by the Orquesta Sinfonica de Venezuela under Jan Wagner. All three works are nationalistic, with plucked strings stating popular Venezuelan rhythms and melodies against various orchestral backdrops.
