Based in Helsinki, it is the primary radio orchestra of the Finnish Broadcasting Company.

Alain de Botton - Come Proust può cambiarvi la vita

Il nome di Proust suscita in voi un certo timore reverenziale? Non è il caso di sentirsi troppo intimiditi di fronte a lui, ci suggerisce Alain de Botton in questo libro. Vale la pena semmai di trarre profitto dalla sofferta esperienza del grande scrittore francese, perché nessuno meglio di chi è stato infelice può darci lezioni di quotidiana felicità: come avere un sacco di amici, come ridar vita a una liaison sentimentale che langue, quali sono i vantaggi e gli svantaggi della lettura… Con la verve del miglior umorismo inglese, e insieme una profonda sensibilità umana, Alain de Botton offre al lettore una guida di vita ispirata a uno scrittore che diventa un discreto, generoso, confortante «compagno dell’anima».

En 2009, le groupe d’André Ceccarelli avec Diego Imbert à la basse et Pierre-Alain Goualch au piano invite David Linx pour l’enregistrement d’un hommage à Claude Nougaro. Le trio se transforme alors en quartet très soudé comme l’ont prouvé les nombreux concerts donnés dans la foulée par les quatre musiciens. Ces 7000 Miles témoignent aussi de cette complicité totale. Même si la voix de Linx est la locomotive du projet, le trio de Ceccarelli n’est évidemment pas là juste pour la déco. Au contraire. L’organe élastique du chanteur bruxellois fait corps avec la musique de ses partenaires.

Nigh on 60 years after his death, the Swiss composer, born in 1880 of Jewish origin, naturalized American in 1924, remains relatively little known by the general public and music lovers alike. Yet his music, full of lyricism, drama, virtuosity, poetry, has all it takes to please. His language combines tonality, bitonality, atonality, elements inherited from the Jewish musical tradition as well as allusions to movie style American music.

Throughout the 19th and early 20th centuries, the United States, land of freedom, open to the world, a democracy concerned with human rights, attracted emigrants of all origins. Rightly or wrongly, the young nation, in full economic expansion, embodied a land of redemption for the composers brought together by Ophélie Gaillard. After Alvorada, her globe-trotting cello leads us in the footsteps of Bloch, Korngold, Prokofiev, Chava Alberstein and Giora Feidmann, singing their exile, whether suffered or deliberately chosen.

Schelomo receives its mead of barbarous splendour at the hands of Nelsova and Abravanel. The recording is a shade too warm but Nelsova (who recorded far too little) who studied the piece with the composer demonstrates her familiarity and sympathy with the piece. This is essential as Schelomo is one of those works that can easily seem nondescript if the artists involved are unengaged. In that sense it is rather like the Bax cello concerto (still awaiting its ideal exponent on disc). This is Nelsova's second, recording of the work. The feverish grip of the music is strongly asserted.

Mstislav Rostropovich did more for the advancement of the cello than probably any other artist since Pablo Casals. Even after his sad passing in 2007 at the age of 80, is musical influence is felt not only in the cello community, but among orchestral musicians as well. This Deutsche Grammophon DVD is among the many tributes to Rostropovich that have surfaced over the short time since his passing. It features the Schumann Concerto and Bloch's Schelomo with Leonard Bernstein and the Orchestre National de France and Strauss' Don Quixote with Karajan and the Berlin Philharmonic. All of these performances are given their first DVD release here. Schumann and Bloch are given intense, riveting performances by Rostropovich and orchestra alike. Any other cellist who played with as much force and aggression would be accused of overplaying, but with Rostropovich the intensity and conviction of his playing are what make the entire performance.
