Georgian folk music possesses what is the oldest tradition of polyphonic music in the world, predating the introduction of Christianity. Scales used in traditional Georgian music have, like most European scales, octaves divided into seven tones (eight including the octave), but the spacing of the tones is different. As with most traditional systems of tuning, traditional Georgian folk music uses a just perfect fifth. Between the unison and the fifth, however, come three evenly-spaced notes, producing a compressed (compared to most European music) major second, a neutral third, and a stretched perfect fourth. …

Cool disc for Jerry Goldsmith fans! World premiere release in any format of complete original soundtrack from 1968 mod-era spy tale set within British Intelligence, directed by David Greene, starring Dirk Bogarde, Susannah York, Sir John Gielgud. World of then-high tech computers, soaring IQ's, secret codes and staff of crackerjack decoders captured by composer with meld of snappy rhythm, cool melody. Main theme, rooted firmly in major key, remains one of Goldsmith's most infectious. In balance is richly expressive trumpet line for more romantic side of tale. Mystery, suspense also plays solid role, especially in latter cues. Entire score presented from mono elements as heard in picture, courtesy Paramount Pictures. CD also offers cool extra treat! After exhaustive search, actual multi-track stereo masters for original 1968 Dot label album surface, courtesy UMG and Geffen, allowing first ever licensed release on CD. Stunning audio quality allows terrific presentation of classic record made by Goldsmith (and Dot producer Tom Mack) way back when! While a mere 25 minutes long, their album encapsulated major thematic material beautifully. And another extra!
Simone Dinnerstein - Something Almost Being Said: Music of Bach and Schubert (2012)

"The trees are coming into leaf/Like something almost being said." Taking a cue from these lines of Philip Larkin, pianist Simone Dinnerstein casts her album of the music of J.S. Bach and Franz Schubert in poetic terms. Her understanding of the composers is summed up in her own words: "The music of Bach and Schubert share a distinctive quality, as if wordless voices were singing textless melodies." Of course, Bach and Schubert were masters of setting texts to profoundly expressive music, so it is fruitful to look for the lyrical impulse in their keyboard works and appropriate to find songful interpretations. Yet Dinnerstein doesn't merely serve up rhapsodic renditions or treat the music as some kind of tuneful vehicle for idiosyncratic or personal reveries. Her playing is quite in character for both composers, and her treatment of the material is far from self-indulgent. Indeed, counterpoint and harmony are carefully balanced against the upper lines, and Dinnerstein is completely in control of the inner parts in Bach's partitas and the rhythmic subtleties of Schubert impromptus. Dinnerstein's playing is well-rounded and skillful, and the care she lavishes on the smallest details of execution may well remind listeners of Glenn Gould (without his attendant eccentricities) or Angela Hewitt.

Despite the use of period instruments, including some fine blaring natural horns, this couldn't be called a historically informed performance of Handel's Royal Fireworks Music, HWV 351. The work was not composed for a pleasant onboard afternoon musicale like the Water Music, but instead was part of an event that would have been one of the top items on CNN Headline News for 1749: the celebration of the Peace of Aix-la-Chapelle, brokered by King George II.

Jules Mouquet (1867‐1946) was born in Paris and studied composition at that city’s Conservatoire with Theodore Dubois. A winner of the prestigious Prix de Rome he became Professor at the Paris Conservatoire, and established himself as a key figure in the French cultural elite, a composer, teacher and author, writing prefaces and notes for works by prominent authors, including Rimbaud, Flaubert and Baudelaire. This new recording presents Mouquet’s complete works for flute and piano. Their titles (La Flûte de Pan, Danse Grecque, Eglogue, Berceuse, Divertissement Grec) already hint at the character of the music: evocative, scenic, often using modal scales and generally influenced by the warm, sensual and sweetly‐romantic language of the young Debussy.
