Every orchestra has a characteristic sound & personality that identifies them through the ages, & in the case of the Boston Symphony Orchestra it is their contoured string & wind elegance, panache & suavity that marks them out as the premier Francophone American orchestra. With Seiji Ozawa at the helm, a conductor much identified with French repertoire, these Quad recordings of Maurice Ravel, accomplished during his long tenure as music director, are afforded the sonic treatment they deserve & are now able to receive given the latest SACD technology employed by Pentatone enabling the release of the full spectrum of sound captured by a previous eras sound engineers.

. . . innovative and exceptionally crafted works, neatly and thinly packaged for your convenience. In "November Steps", the biwa (a short-necked lute) and shakuhachi (an end-blown bamboo flute) take center stage. Ozawa and his excellent orchestra have little to do except provide a sparse backdrop, but they are unchallenged in this music all the same.

This is the simply a slpendid recording- well paced, energetic and in excellent sound. I have a suspicion that many people drawn to these works pay undo emphasis on the choir [or they are choir singers] and understandably get frustrating when the choir is not front and center in the musical proceedings. But what Poulenc wrote here does not emphasize the choir [he was a master instrumentalist after all!] so the orchestra should be more prominent at times. Ragardless, this is a great performance!

Maria Bellonci - Tu vipera gentile

Maria Bellonci - Tu vipera gentile
Italian | 2018 | 260 pages | ASIN: B07CMWF2GL | EPUB | 0,6 MB

Tu vipera gentile raccoglie tre racconti: Delitto di Stato, sullo sfondo della tumultuosa Mantova del Seicento; Soccorso a Dorotea, storia limpida e crudele di un'adolescenza travolta dalle ambizioni politiche; Tu vipera gentile, ambientato in una Milano tra Medioevo e primo Rinascimento, ricca di traffici, tumulti, partiti, fazioni. Nella diversità dei tempi e dei personaggi, l'elemento che lega i tre testi è la riflessione sul potere che, mentre inesorabilmente degenera verso una sempre più cupa tirannia, macina tra i propri ingranaggi vite e sentimenti di uomini, donne, giovani. Personaggi che Maria Bellonci, con la sua prosa armoniosa e vibrante, restituisce più vivi che mai, colti nelle intime flessioni del loro animo.

Che cosa si intende con il termine 'postverità'? C'è chi lo utilizza per indicare una modalità di comunicare in cui i fatti oggettivi sono meno rilevanti rispetto alle emozioni e alle convinzioni. Altri lo usano per indicare informazioni volutamente e coscientemente false. Quel che è certo è che parlare di postverità coglie un cambiamento importante propiziato dai media almeno dagli anni '90. Ormai da molto tempo, infatti, i reality show, i talent, la real tv hanno reso più debole l'idea di realtà e, conseguentemente, di verità. Realtà e finzione si sono intrecciate e spesso confuse, in una logica culturale che premia le emozioni e le identificazioni, non la messa alla prova e le competenze.
