The brainchild of Antoine Tamestit, this recording stems from a long-standing collaboration with his recital partner, Jörg Widmann. Over the course of his new viola concerto, Widmann the composer lets his soloist move freely about the stage, producing fresh orchestral colours within a novel structure: combining humour with earnestness, ferocity with delicacy, Widmann's unfailing sense of theatre serves to highlight the work's haunting beauty. Whether embedded in the orchestral fabric or exploring the more intimate pieces on this programme, the violist comes out a hero, hands down!

Even frequent concertgoers will find it difficult to imagine what to expect under the heading “English viola music”. A few symphonic works by Elgar, Vaughan Williams and Britten have found an established place in our German concert repertoire; violists also know William Walton’s concerto. Other composers of the British Isles, however, have remained unknown to the German public in spite of their prolific output: names such as York Bowen (1884-1961), Benjamin Dale (1885-1943) or Frank Bridge (1879-1941).

A tribute to inwardness, patience and beauty. This is how the Danish composer Poul Ruders (b. 1949) described his Viola Concerto from 1994. The music has an almost Late Romantic expressive style and is played with rich, many-faceted feeling by the Norwegian viola virtuoso Lars Anders Tomter. The work premiered at the BBC Proms in 1995, whereafter he rewrote the piece. This recording contains the revised 2013 version. It is devoted to the right and ability of music to stay aloof, maintaining its emotional integrity, detached from the tyranny of fashion and trend. In his Handel Variations (2009) Poul Ruders has composed no fewer than 90 variations on eight bars from Handels Water Music.

Born in Rio de Janeiro to a family deeply rooted in the samba tradition, Paulinho met and befriended much of Rio's samba elite as a child. His father César Faria was a guitar player, and musicians such as Pixinguinha and Jacob do Bandolim would often come to his house for rehearsals, which Paulinho watched for hours on end. After the rehearsals, Paulinho would pick up his father's guitar and strum the few chords he knew. Later, as a teenager, he was frequently seen at jams at mandolin master Jacob do Bandolim's house, quietly and attentively observing the older, more experienced musicians. He began writing his own songs as a teenager, but never considered a career as a professional musician until he met poet Hermínio Bello de Carvalho in 1964. By then, Paulinho was working as a teller at a bank in Rio de Janeiro, and recognized Hermínio from the jam sessions at Jacob do Bandolim's house.

Nel 1897, durante una spedizione nel medio Egitto, due archeologi di Oxford trovarono le discariche di una cittadina fiorente ai tempi dell’Impero romano, Ossirinco, abitata dai discendenti degli immigrati greci che avevano colonizzato l’Egitto dopo la conquista di Alessandro Magno. Quando, dieci anni dopo, la campagna di scavo si concluse, erano ben 500.000 i frammenti di papiro catalogati: un patrimonio unico di testi eterogenei, in cui capolavori perduti della letteratura greca si mescolavano a frammenti di Vangeli censurati, a ricevute di tasse, petizioni, lettere private, contratti, testamenti, liste della spesa… Era la vita di un’intera città antica che miracolosamente tornava alla luce. Un tesoro inestimabile che viene presentato per la prima volta a un pubblico non specialista nelle pagine avvincenti di questo libro scritto da uno dei massimi esperti di papirologia.

In December 2016, Egyptian security forces arrested Al Jazeera journalist Mahmoud Hussein while on holiday in Cairo. There have been no formal charges against Hussein, an Egyptian national based in Doha, Qatar. He's accused of "incitement against state institutions and broadcasting false news with the aim of spreading chaos". However, article 71 of the Egyptian constitution says that: "no custodial sanction shall be imposed for crimes committed by way of publication or the public nature thereof".

With a curriculum vitae rich of exciting musical moments and incredible works, Al Di Meola is still challenging himself and his music but with a more relaxed way to see things. Over the last few years he has literally started all over, reinventing himself in both, his private life and music, and his brand new studio album "OPUS" truly reflects all of this. 'With "OPUS" I wanted to further my compositional skills as I think that the evolution of this part of my persona has labeled me more composer/guitarist than guitarist/composer', says Al. 'At the same time this record also marks a new era in my life. For the first time in my life, I have written music being happy, I'm in a wonderful relationship with my wife, I have a baby girl and a beautiful family that inspires me every day. I believe it shows in the music.' Available on CD, 180 gram Vinyl and Digital.
