The early opera of Antonín Dvorák recorded here definitely falls into the historical oddity category. It's in German, not Czech, set to a libretto by a poet long dead by 1870, when the work was composed, and it is unknown why Dvorák would have undertaken such a sizable project. The subject is a British king, Alfred the Great, who also inspired the opera by Thomas Arne that contains Rule, Brittania, and even shows up in the Vikings television miniseries.

Alfred Schnittke's Second Concerto Grosso is a different creature than his First. While the 1977 Concerto Grosso No. 1 for 2 Violins, Strings and Keyboards is a lithe, vicious, often comical work, the Second, finished five years later, is a weightier affair. The soloists are now violin and cello; the Baroque band is now a full orchestra with electric guitar, drum kit, and brake drum; there are four large movements rather than six smaller ones; the entire work is imbued with an air of sincere tragedy, albeit with mud on its shoes. Schnittke dedicated the work to its premiere soloists, husband-and-wife duo Oleg Kagan (violin) and Natalia Gutman (cello); famed for their flawless ensemble, the couple inspired in Schnittke a musical air of companionship – a single soul in two instruments.

Can human beings perceive reality directly? Can we enter into a mode where space and time are meaningless but which feels more real than anything you've ever experienced?

"Questo libro è il distillato di quanto ho da dire, in tarda età, sulla musica, sui musicisti e su questioni relative al mio mestiere" dichiara Alfred Brendel, che, scegliendo la forma dell'abbecedario musicale - da "Accento" a "Zarzuela" -, rivela ancora una volta la sua duplice natura di musicista e acuto saggista, oltre a confermare la sua predilezione per l'aforisma e il frammento. Chi lo conosce sa che nei suoi scritti profonde riflessioni sui problemi dell'interpretazione musicale si alternano ad aneddoti, considerazioni sulla tecnica pianistica a sapide testimonianze sui rapporti ora idilliaci ora burrascosi con direttori d'orchestra e cantanti: e questo vademecum lo conferma..

Lorsqu'il a entrepris de constituer ces anthologies, Hitchcock a toujours eu pour grand principe d'y mêler l'humour à la mort. Ici, une fois de plus, il réussit à donner une saveur incomparable à ce grisant mélange, en y incorporant deux « meurtres impossibles »: Le Pont de verre de Robert Arthur et Les Assassins n'ont pas d'ailes d'Arthur Porges, ainsi que quelques Variations sur un thème, dues à C.B. Gilford, et le tout vous est servi à L'Heure du perroquet, avec un zeste de Prophétie. Aussi, nul doute que, en refermant ce volume, vous pensiez comme Henry Slesar : «Compliments au chef!»
