The buried contents of a Nazi train. An aging SS mass-murderer. And the wartime secrets of a U.S. presidential hopeful’s Jewish family, hidden for seven decades.
War crimes investigator and ex-CIA officer Joe Johnson is more than intrigued when he learns of a link between the contents of a Nazi train, hidden by Hitler’s Third Reich, a ruthless blackmail plot, and financing for a U.S. presidential hopeful’s 2012 campaign…

The projected complete cycle of Vaughan Williams’s symphonies started by the late Richard Hickox has left a precious heritage in the discography of the composer. Conducting the Bergen Philharmonic Orchestra, Sir Andrew Davis takes on the challenge of completing the series with idiomatic interpretations of two masterpieces: the final Symphony No. 9 and the ballet Job. Sir Davis's subtle direction combined with the pure sound quality of the recording does full justice to Hickox’s great enterprise and delivers a powerful conclusion to this already acclaimed series.

Sensuously Mediterranean sounds and Northern solemnity shake hands on this recording of Mendelssohn's Italian and Reformation symphonies (Nos. 4 and 5). This is the second release in a series of recordings in multi-channel surround sound for PENTATONE by the conductor Andrew Manze and the NDR Radiophilharmonie. Expectations are high after the first album of this series, a recording of Mendelssohn's first and third symphonies, was crowned with a 2017 Jahrespreis der deutschen Schallplattenkritik.

Andrew Parrott, Taverner Choir & Players - Handel: Israel in Egypt (2003)
EAC | FLAC | Image (Cue & Log) ~ 591 Mb | Total time: 68:38+66:36 | Scans included
Classical | Label: Erato | # 5 62155 2 | Recorded: 1989

Using some of the finest early-music soloists of the day, Parrott and his forces give posterity a recording that welds tightly focused emotion to a laudable and uncommon feel for the music. The soloists produce appropriately light but well-focused tone and display an ability to negotiate the intricacies of Handel’s notes evenly and with an exceptional grasp of the phrasing required for successful performance. The choral lines are carefully etched and meticulously balanced, resulting in a superlative overall sound that—in spite of the small choir—is rich and capable of exceeding power when required.

The Taverner Consort & Choir under Andrew Parrott recorded “Spem in alium” 1986/87 at St.John-at-Hackney in London, combined with other latin motets by Tallis (among them The Lamentations of Jeremiah). This is an excellent recording with good transparency and spacial structuring. Good voices (all solo), with the support of a bass sackbut and two chamber organs.

Andrew Parrott’s period Messiah from the late 1980s was re-released a few years ago by EMI Virgin Classics, and the re-release amply documents the richness and staying power of this generation of Messiah performances—a richness now removed from the aura of novelty—the “uncle” has been clean shaven for quite a while now. In part, the richness of this performance derives from Parrott’s soloists, then the unrivalled stars of the English early music scene, including soprano Emma Kirkby, countertenor James Bowman, and bass David Thomas.

Andrew Pettegree - L'invenzione delle notizie. Come il mondo arrivò a conoscersi

Ben prima dell'invenzione della stampa o della possibilità di leggere un quotidiano, la gente desiderava essere informata. Nell'era preindustriale le notizie venivano raccolte e diffuse attraverso le conversazioni e il gossip, le cerimonie civili e religiose, le prediche e gli annunci degli araldi. Con la stampa arrivarono i libelli, gli editti, le ballate, le pubblicazioni periodiche e i primi fogli di notizie: l'informazione passava dal ristretto ambito locale alla platea mondiale. Questo libro ne segue l'evoluzione, delineando la storia delle notizie in dieci paesi nel corso di quattro secoli. Ci rivela l'inaspettata varietà di modi grazie ai quali l'informazione veniva trasmessa, al pari dell'impatto avuto dalla diffusione dei media sugli eventi del tempo e sulle vite di un pubblico sempre più informato…
