Living as he does between Paris and Los Angeles, pianist Andrew von Oeyen is the ideal interpreter for this enticing programme: flanking Ravel’s Piano Concerto in G with Saint-Saëns’ Piano Concerto No. 2 and Gershwin’s Second Rhapsody, it explores Franco-American cross-currents. Von Oeyen is partnered by the PFK Prague Philharmonia under its Music Director and Chief Conductor Emmanuel Villaume.

Andrew Waggoner - Terror and Memory (2011)  Music

Contemporary Classical | Albany Records TROY1307 | 2011 | 68:52 | EAC (FLAC, cue, log) | Booklet | Various File Hosts | 278 MB
Open End, Corigliano Quartet, Flexible Music, Ensemble Nordlys, Caroline Stinson (cello), Molly Morkoski (piano)

It is hard to describe Waggoner’s (b.1960) music. Stylistically, one hears hints of, among others, Ives’s large-scale vision, Janácek’s volatile emotional content, Bartók’s purity and rigor, Berg’s intensity, Messiaen’s mysticism, and Shostakovich’s fascination with great existential questions. The net result, however, strikes me as highly original and compelling, as attested by the seven works featured on this recording... The works that open and close the disc are improvisations for string quartet—the first is sarcastic and grotesque; the second, in which the ensemble seems unsuccessfully to search for tonality (and perhaps redemption), is haunting and moving.

The Center Counter can be aggressive and dangerous. It immediately challenges White from the get-go (1. e4 d5!) and it is making a comeback! Because of Andrew Martin's 2… Qxd5, the Center Counter also doesn't require a mountain of memorization nor knowledge to learn it and use it.

Andrew Martin, The Hippopotamus Rises: The Re-Emergence of a Chess Opening
ISBN: 0713489898 | edition 2006 | PDF | 140 pages | 14 mb

The hippopotamus, as every big game hunter knows, is a deceptively dangerous beast. And so, in the chess world, is the Hippopotamus Defense. To opponents unfamiliar with it, it looks awkward and unaggressive—until it crushes the life out of their favorite openings. Andrew Martin analyzes the basic moves and key variations of the Hippopotamus, showing with illustrative games how it confuses the average player yet is inherently sound enough for Grandmaster competition. In these days of huge databases and long forcing lines, the Hippopotamus stands out, offering everyone the chance to play chess in an original and interesting way.
