A masterpiece born of the collaboration of composer Lully and his librettist Quinault, the “tragédie en musique” called Alceste caused a scandal when it was created in 1674. The tragic register was reserved for the theater, while the music was content with the comic vein. But thanks to the combined talents of Lully and Quinault, the stage of the Royal Academy of Music saw the development of the new tragic and lyrical genre.

Following two successful EPs, the Philadelphia-based duo known as Marian Hill unveils its debut album, appropriately titled ACT ONE. The two multitalented members of the group, who have been collaborating since high school, are writer and producer Jeremy Lloyd and writer and vocalist Samantha Gongol. Together they composed and self-produced ACT ONE in its entirety and the results are seductive and vivid. Tempting paradox, Marian Hill’s one of a kind sound is present throughout: blues harmonies blend with sparse hip-hop drums, horns blast under classic vocal melodies and soloistic vocal chops sit side by side with clear, intimate lyrics, surprisingly familiar.

Following the success of their epic debut full-length "Blessed He With Boils," the masters of Cinematic Black Metal are back with their massive double album "Of Erthe and Axen." Released in two Acts (Act I August 22, 2017, Act II October 17, 2017), "Of Erthe and Axen" is a prequel to the tales woven throughout Xanthochroid's earlier releases. In the world of Etymos, older brother Sindr (better known as Ereptor) returns to the island nation of Axen seven years after he left to join the ranks of the Erthen military. What follows is a tale of love, jealousy, magic, war, and deceit as younger brother Thanos learns of his brother's true motivations.

Brilliant's breezy survey of Rossini's one-act operas is assembled from five different recordings originally released on the Claves label in the early '90s. All were well received in their original form, and since all five were conducted by the veteran Marcello Viotti in similar-enough-for-non-audiophile acoustics, they make a convincing box set, and an attractive buy for those looking for a lighthearted Rossini infusion. The packaging is minimal, and the included libretti are in Italian only, so if you're counting on a translation you'll have to find it somewhere else. Viotti's work is exemplary and idiomatic throughout, always putting Rossini's most tuneful and lighthearted foot forward, while never forgetting that every good comedy has real moments of pathos. The overtures all seem a bit under tempo, and could use an extra shot of fun, but they are still upbeat enough to elicit a smile. The casts are uniformly excellent, mostly populated with journeyman Rossinians with fresh, if not always head turning, voices and good character. But each opera has at least one higher profile name, whose charisma adds just enough spice to the mix to elevate the entire collection above the competition: Ramón Vargas, Maria Bayo, and the accomplished buffo Bruno Pratico are exceptionally good.

"Revista underground patrocinada por la concejalia de juventud del ayuntamiento de Madrid pero con una personalidad propia ofreciendo una propuesta artistica espontanea y fresca, los contenidos tenian que pasar por el dudoso aprovado politico, pero aun así la profesionalidad de los autores, hicierón de Madriz una revista que reflejaba la realidad Madrileña tal y como ellos la veian, dierón una visión fresca y natural de la movida madrileña , tachada en algunos casos de posmoderna, pero que marco un estilo propio, apostando por la linea clara."
