Strauss, R: - Also sprach Zarathustra; Ein Heldenleben; Metamorphosen, etc. – San Francisco Symphony; Herbert Blomstedt

Blomstedt’s singular view of Also sprach Zarathustra reflects his deep knowledge of and experience with the piece… The San Francisco Symphony plays masterfully, its characteristic warm sound allied with a virtuoso polish that nonetheless conveys a sense of discovery… Blomstedt’s Ein Heldenleben is one of the most beautifully rendered performances on disc.- Victor Carr Jr.

Carl Schmitt and Leo Strauss in the Chinese-Speaking World: Reorienting the Political

Carl Schmitt and Leo Strauss in the Chinese-Speaking World: Reorienting the Political by Kai Marchal, Carl K. Y. Shaw
English | February 22nd, 2017 | ISBN: 1498536263 | 291 Pages | PDF | 1.18 MB

Carl Schmitt and Leo Strauss in the Chinese-Speaking World: Reorienting the Political examines the reception of Carl Schmitt and Leo Strauss in China and Taiwan. The legacies of both Schmitt, the German legal theorist and thinker who joined the Nazi party, and Strauss, the German-Jewish classicist and political philosopher who became famous after his emigration to the United States, are highly controversial. Since the 1990s, however, these thinkers have had a powerful resonance for Chinese scholars.

In the spring of 1888, Richard Strauss began composing his third tone poem for large orchestra: «Don Juan». The score is headed with quotes from an incomplete poem of the same name by Nikolaus Lenaus, but the programmatic connection now seems much looser than was long believed. In June 1885 Strauss, with Hans von Bülow, had attended a performance of Paul Heyse’s drama «Don Juans Ende» («Don Juan’s End»). Was this another source of inspiration?

This remastering comes from the original analogue tapes and has been transferred at high resolution digital quality to capture the very best sound from the tapes. In consultation with the original engineer Chris Parker, we have slightly adjusted the balance of the Trio (in Act 3) to reflect the quality of sound that was desired but not achieved at the time of recording. This recording was originally made as a mono recording by Douglas Larter, with a stereo test version engineered by Chris Parker. It is this stereo test version which has been used for this remastering. Despite the early experimental nature of this new ‘stereo’ technology, this recording is captured in astonishingly vivid sound and is a testament to the experience, understanding and skill of both the musicians and engineers of the time.’ Simon Gibson, Remastering Engineer at Abbey Road Studios.
