The soundtrack from the acclaimed 2011 Pedro Almodóvar film features instrumental music by internationally renowned film composer – and longtime Almodóvar collaborator – Alberto Iglesias, inspired by Bernard Herrmann's classic scores for Alfred Hitchcock's thrillers. Besides Iglesias' compositions, La Piel Que Habito includes four other selections: "Por el Amor de Amar" (the film's main song) and "Se Me Hizo Fácil," both sung by the exquisite flamenco fusion vocalist Concha Buika; a cover of Elliott Smith's "Between the Bars" by Chris Garneau; and "Shades of Marble" by Danish electronic artist Trentemøller.
Pianist Red Garland recorded frequently with trios for Prestige during the second half of the 1950s. For this set (reissued on CD), Garland, bassist George Joyner and drummer Charlie Persip are joined by Ray Barretto on congas and the emphasis is on forceful swinging. Garland takes such ballads as "We Kiss in a Shadow" and "You Better Go Now" at faster-than-expected tempos. "Ralph J. Gleason Blues" and the Latin feel of "Rojo" are among the highlights of this enjoyable disc.
La DANZA# и una struttura complessa di spazio-tempo per l'improvvisazione. Tale struttura si compone di tre elementi base: lo spazio definito (scrittura in notazione), lo spazio aperto (improvvisazione statica) e la danza (improvvisazione dinamica). Nell'esecuzione delle composizioni questi elementi si costruiscono attraverso il suono e possono comparire in tutte le combinazioni a seconda delle indicazioni della partitura.
This film of Kenneth MacMillan's hugely-popular ballet Manon is the perfect twin to his classic Romeo & Juliet, released on September 29th, 2009. Once again, the romantic male lead is taken by the charismatic Carlos Acosta, and once again his beautiful partner is Tamara Rojo. Prévost's famous tale is set to the sensual music of Massenet and the Royal Ballet's staging is played out against the sumptuous set and costume designs of Nicholas Georgiadis. Manon is the third DVD release from Decca's new exclusive artist, Carlo Acosta. The Cuban superstar builds on his stunning Spartacus and romantic Romeo & Juliet performances as the ardent young lover, Des Grieux, in MacMillan's classic version of the tragedy. This high-definition film of Manon is one of the most popular ballets in the Royal Ballet's repertory, having received over 200 performances since its premiere in 1974. The DVD also includes an extensive (40 min) and fascinating documentary film, `Dancing Manon', featuring interviews with Carlos Acosta, Tamara Rojo, Monica Mason (Director of the Royal Ballet) and Ross MacGibbon (TV Director).
