The legendary conductor Kurt Sanderling was always a great admirer of Rachmaninovs music. There is just one other, old recording of Sanderling conducting Rachmaninovs Third Symphony. This is, therefore, another notable release in the SWR historic series. The performances on this disc are from his Stuttgart concerts, beginning with Mussorgskys prelude to his unfinished opera Khovanshchina, the work he began after completing Boris Godunov.

Albert Camus once wrote 'when I describe what the catastrophe of modern man looks like, music comes into my mind the music of Gustav Mahler'. If asked to specify a particular work, it is quite possible that Camus would have proposed Symphony No. 6 in A minor the symphony that Bruno Walter claimed portrayed 'a terrifying, hopeless darkness, without a human sound'. Nevertheless, the period during which Mahler wrote his Sixth was one of the most successful and happiest of his life prior to any marital difficulties, at the time of the birth of his second daughter Anna, his professional reputation growing.

With their combination of modernism and Romantic nostalgia, and alternation of sweeping orchestral gestures with chamber-musical delicacy, Gustav Mahlers orchestral works are as impressive and moving today as they were at the time of their premiere.

Goon: Memoir of a Minor League Hockey Enforcer, 2nd Edition

Goon: Memoir of a Minor League Hockey Enforcer, 2nd Edition by Doug Smith,‎ Adam Frattasio
English | January 2nd, 2018 | ASIN: B077F4DCTJ, ISBN: 1476671680 | 241 pages | EPUB | 5.74 MB

Directionless yet driven by a fervent desire to make something of himself, Doug "The Thug" Smith took his only marketable job skill—amateur boxing—and followed an unlikely career path to become a hockey enforcer, a.k.a. “goon.” Entrusted with aggressively protecting his teammates from tough guys on the opposing team, he punched, elbowed and cross-checked his way up the ranks of minor league hockey to win a championship ring and the respect of his community. His entertaining underdog story is the subject of the cult-classic motion picture Goon (2011) and its sequel Goon: Last of the Enforcers (2017).

This much awaited recording offers keenly idiomatic performances of the most famous works by Grieg, played by the composers own orchestra, the Bergen Philharmonic, and its Chief Conductor, Edward Gardner. The drama and passion of such favourite pieces as the incidental music to Peer Gynt and the Piano Concerto are superbly captured in surround-sound with exemplary Chandos sound quality.

This LP brings together for the first time, HIP HARP and IN A MINOR GROOVE, the two albums recorded in 1958 by the legendary jazz harpist and polistrumentist Dorothy Ashby. Dorothy Ashby had a unique soul jazz harp sound, and although the instrument she used is probably more thought of in terms of bedtime lullabies, she actually makes it swing nicely, and with a soulful sound that draws back to traditions of African stringed instruments. Ashby was part of the same scene as Yusef Lateef, and like Lateef, she managed to use odd instrumentation in new contexts, to get a very unique jazz sound.
