John Evelyn ranks with his friend Samuel Pepys as one of the best loved of English diarists. This is an absorbing new study of the most controversial episode of his life: his passionate "seraphic" friendship with Margaret Godolphin, a maid of honor at the Restoration court of Charles II. Set against the vivid background of the court and the great gardens of the time, Transformations of Love provides new insights into the sexual and spiritual worlds of early modern England.

Vite brevi di uomini eminenti di John Aubrey
Adelphi | 1977 | ISBN: 8845903303 | 287 pages | EPUB | 3 MB

Aubrey passò la vita ad annotare, instancabile, particolari e tratti notevoli di ciò che incontrava o gli veniva raccontato o scopriva. Una parte di questi appunti, stesi in una sorta di scrittura stenografica, che dà al suo stile una stupefacente modernità, è dedicata alle vite di uomini, per qualche ragione illustri, del passato (Shakespeare, Erasmo…) o suoi contemporanei (quasi tutti i protagonisti intellettuali di quel secolo di genio prorompente che fu il Seicento inglese, accanto a personaggi frivoli o irrecuperabilmente dimenticati) – ed essa forma quella raccolta di Vite brevi che hanno fatto di Aubrey quasi l’eroe fondatore di ogni possibile arte della biografia.

Classical | WEB FLAC (tracks) & front cover | 76:59 min | 301 MB
Label: Solo Musica | Tracks: 08 | Rls.date: 2017

The present release of Symphonies 4 and 7 must be understood both as an evaluation of the joint work over past years with the Münchner Symphoniker, and also as a look ahead at what is yet to come. The logo of the Munich Symphony Orchestra shows a golden angel on the banks of the river Isar - wing tips point skywards, keeping vigil over the Bavarian capital. As one of the city’s four symphony orchestras, the Munich Symphony is strongly committed to Munich and its musical traditions. Kevin John Edusei is one of today's most promising young conductors.

Recorded over the course of three months in 1962, Coltrane was John Coltrane's third album for Impulse, but his first for the label devoted entirely to his regular working group. It was also the first album on any label to showcase what came to be known as the classic John Coltrane Quartet. That group – with McCoy Tyner on piano, Jimmy Garrison on bass and Elvin Jones on drums – established itself in its four years of existence as one of the most influential ensembles in jazz, and one of the most popular as well. Coltrane documents its genesis.

The artistic prowess of saxophonist John Coltrane was so expansive and influential - even in his own short lifetime, let alone in the decades since his death - that it's difficult to quantify or differentiate his significance as a leader, a collaborator, a sideman or any other role in the jazz idiom. What's certain, though, is that some of his most pivotal session work took place on the Prestige label in the 1950s.

In terms of the scale of his compositions, John Adams' career is somewhat anomalous for a contemporary composer. While the usual pattern tends to be for a composer to begin a career writing smaller pieces (which have a far likelier chance of being performed) and then expanding to larger forms as his or her reputation grows, Adams (with very few exceptions) was writing large-scale operas and orchestral and choral works starting in the early '80s and didn't begin devoting himself to chamber music with any regularity until the mid-'90s.

John’s Children were the quintessential cult 60s Mod/Psych band, controversial, sharply dressed and subsequently the stuff of legend. The band were fronted by Andy Ellison (later with Jet and Radio Stars) and boasted Marc Bolan within their ranks during their short life. "A Strange Affair" - for the first time - boasts the entire John’s Children output between 1966 and 1970…
