Since releasing their self-titled debut record in 2012, which The New Yorker called, “One of the year’s best albums…a punishing, noisy, exhilarating thing”, the Toronto-based 3-piece METZ have garnered international acclaim as one of the most electrifying and forceful live acts, touring widely and extensively, playing hundreds of shows each year around the world. "Strange Peace", the band's third studio album was recorded in Chicago, live off the floor to tape with Steve Albini. The result is a distinct artistic maturation into new and alarming territory, frantically pushing past where the band has gone before, while capturing the notorious intensity of their live show.

Rob Metz is a guitarist who performs in the virtuoso genre out of Ohio, delivering a masterful blend of rock and bluesy experimentation, with a dash of industrial-strength shredding for good measure. Audiences were blown away as Metz took command of the stage during the 2007 promotion of Legion of his debut album, "Legion of Dreams" performing in and around the Northeast Ohio area on primarily progressive rock bills. Metz staked his claim outright and deservedly so. Metz has been a player for the last three decades. He teaches many students online and in person as well as recording studio album releases. Metz has been influenced heavily by players like Satriani and Vai, as well as studying under the likes of Neil Zaza and Dave Weiner. Metz continues to release new original material that expresses his passion for music.

Alessandro Stradella’s colourful life and eventual murder have since furnished writers with material for novels and stageworks. But he was very highly regarded as a composer during his short life, and made important contributions to several musical forms with operas, instrumental sinfonie and cantatas. This programme features five seldom performed chamber cantatas and two of his sinfonie or sonatas. Soprano Christine Brandes has a light, pleasing voice, and an athletic technique which enables her to circumnavigate most of Stradella’s often demanding vocal writing. But she is stretched to her limits, perhaps even a shade beyond, in the virtuoso, fiendishly difficult ‘Ferma il corso e torna al lido’.

"L'osservatore oscuro" è l'alter ego negativo che ci portiamo dentro, quello che ci dice che non ce la faremo, quello che alimenta le nostre paranoie, gli incubi peggiori… Per Aurora Scalviati, giovane profiler della polizia di Sparvara, i colleghi Bruno Colasanti, Tom Carelli e Silvia Sassi sono diventati la famiglia che non ha mai avuto. Ma tutto è destinato a cambiare con il ritrovamento, alla Certosa di Bologna, del cadavere di un uomo senza nome né documenti di riconoscimento. Gli unici indizi sono la bocca cucita, il corpo martoriato da un'antica, feroce tortura e un tatuaggio sul petto con il nome di Aurora, eseguito postmortem. Sospettata di essere coinvolta nell'omicidio e interrogata senza sosta, Aurora deve scontrarsi non solo con la diffidenza dei superiori, ma anche con quella dei suoi più stretti collaboratori. Persino il suo rapporto con Bruno viene messo a dura prova..

To be a woman singing your own blues and soul songs in 1960s Texas was a rare thing. To do so while brandishing a left-handed Stratocaster and bashing out hard-edged licks was even rarer. Yet that’s just what Barbara Lynn did, inspired by Guitar Slim, Jimmy Reed, Elvis Presley and Brenda Lee. And it was a hit: her 1962 debut single, “You’ll Lose A Good Thing,” recorded with session musicians including Dr. John, gave her an R&B chart Number One and a Billboard chart Top 10 hit.

Understandably, Poulenc's Gloria and Stabat Mater have almost invariably been coupled together on LPs and CDs. Similarly scored for solo soprano, chorus, and orchestra, the two works are arguably the twin peaks of Poulenc's sacred music, that is, they are irresistibly melodic, energetically rhythmic, directly emotional, conservatively harmonic, and fervently religious. That said, however, the difference in tone between the two works is as striking as their similarities. Where the Gloria is light, bright, and at times even funny, the Stabat Mater, as befits its subject matter, is dark, heavy, and always deeply sorrowful. In this pair of performances with Georges Prêtre leading the Orchestre National de France and the French Radio Choir from the '80s, both works are given the deluxe French treatment. Prêtre is as skilled at balancing his forces as he is at keeping the music moving, and, as importantly, he is as capable of expressing the Gloria's joyous wit as he is of articulating the Stabat Mater's profound suffering. But the real star of these performances is American soprano Barbara Hendricks whose clear, warm voice and excellent diction breath vibrant life into all Poulenc's glorious melodies.
