May, 2007 marks the 300th anniversary of the birth of Swede Carl Linnaeus (also known after his enoblement as Carl von Linné). Known as the "father of modern taxonomy," this botanist, physician and zoologist laid the foundations for the modern scheme of plant and animal nomenclature. He is also considered one of the fathers of modern ecology. Väsen was commissioned to arrange music to mark this occassion, so the core trio asked their longtime collaborator and percussionist André Ferrari to help them once again.

Martin Fröst - Carl Nielse, Kalevi Aho: Clarinet Concertos (2007)
EAC | FLAC (image+.cue, log) | Covers Included | 53:57 | 220 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: BIS | Catalog: 1463

Fearsomely talented Swedish clarinetist Martin Fröst continues his conquest of the major concerto repertoire for his instrument with this recording of Carl Nielsen's 1928 Clarinet Concerto, paired with a new concerto by Finland's Kalevi Aho. The Nielsen concerto is a dense work in which the clarinet and the orchestra spend a lot of time going their separate ways, with the path of the clarinet being very twisted indeed.
Carl Gustav Jung, Károly Kerényi - Prolegomeni allo studio scientifico della mitologia

Carl Gustav Jung, Károly Kerényi - Prolegomeni allo studio scientifico della mitologia
Italian | 1972 | 241 pages | ASIN: B00GMGWNDS | PDF | 1,7 MB

In questo libro due maestri, e le loro idee, sono a colloquio. La tesi junghiana dell'inconscio collettivo dialoga con le pagine più vive sulla mitologia che Kerényi abbia mai scritto. La creazione mitica non è che la rappresentazione degli archetipi, e come tale rivela una sfera importante della psiche. Il testo di Kerényi si riferisce ai fanciulli e alle fanciulle divine, mentre quello di Jung ne è il naturale commento psicologico. Si tratta però di sezioni autonome, che si possono leggere anche in ordine invertito. Per Jung il tema onirico della "fanciullezza" rappresenta la parte "giovane" della psiche collettiva e come tale cela sempre un valore positivo. Prefazione di Mario Trevi.

Collectors cannot pass over this edition. Schumann’s Manfred still has a small discography. The eighty-minute version of Carl Schuricht’s interpretation in 1952 remains, even today, a reference point, largely due to its uncommonly attractive audio quality. The second half of this release collects very rare pieces, especially notable are Volkmann’s, Pfitzner’s, and Delius’ symphonic works, that are here published for the first time as performed by the Stuttgart Radio Symphony Orchestra and Chorus and the Bavarian Radio Symphony Orchestra and Chorus under the capable direction of Carl Schuricht.

On the eve of his centenary in 2018, Sony Classical releases the most important collection, Leonard Bernstein’s classic American Columbia recordings, remastered from their original 2- and multi-track analogue tapes. This has allowed for the creation of a natural balance (for example, between the orchestra and solo instruments) that brings the quality of these half-century-old recordings, excellent for their time, up to the standards of today’s audiophiles. In addition, there has been a meticulous restoration of some earlier masterings in which LP surface noise was too rigorously eliminated at the expense of the original brilliance.

Paul McCartney was commissioned by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra to compose a work to mark its 150th anniversary and collaborated with composer/conductor Carl Davis on this 90-minute classical piece, which features soloists Kiri Te Kanawa and Jerry Hadley in a vaguely autobiographical story of a Liverpudlian named Shanty…
