A wonderful gem! This incredibly well put together album is a triumph start to finish. The way in which Celletti interprets and represents the tunes on her sole piano is astonishing; perfectly paced with a beautiful use of dynamics and ordered all together so well it delivers a sensation of euphoria. This is a perfect measured collection of written sound that's delivered through the fingers of a rare artist who has within her that special ingredient needed to be able to release Satie's compositional ideas and make them illuminate the listener's ears.

Fresh air in an old Glass classic: the young and very clever pianist Alessandra Celletti surf with joy, melancholy, intensity, intimately, superb touch control and creative freedom on the mathematical Glass's waves. A very enjoyable, delightful, emotional, soul-stirring sound experience.
This is a fine Testament release taken from the archives of Netherlands Radio and enshrines some magnificent Barbirolli performances in somewhat opaque sound. The Satie Gymnopedie's have a delicate and loving sound that reveal Sir John's deep and intrinsic love for the miniaturistic charm of these enchanting pieces. Britten's 'Sinfonia da Requiem' was another Barbirolli speciality and this is one of many recordings available. However it is intriguing to observe the special attention and alertness that the Concertgebouw players impart to the music that takes on an added grandeur. However it is the Dvořák Seventh that is the real highlight of the disc as it is a version to die for! Sir John handles the music with real imagery and heart-on-sleeve emotion that almost rivals Kertész and Sejna, my other preferred versions in this landmark work.
Veteran Italian rock band Pooh formed in Bologna in 1966. During the late '60s, the band featured Roby Facchinetti, Valerio Negrini, Dodi Battaglia, and Riccardo Fogli, but after Negrini left in 1971, the band recruited guitarist, bassist, and vocalist Red Canzian plus drummer and percussionist Stefano D'Orazio, and began a long run as one of the best and most popular Italian rockers of their times. The band recorded for many labels, including CBS, Vedette, CGD (Compagnia Generale del Disco), and Warner Music Italy, selling over 100 million records in the process. Pooh continued to tour and record continually up into the 2010s, but in late 2016 they decided to call it quits by the end of the year…
