Emma Kirkby, doyenne of the Early Music scene, here shows that she's just as comfortable in music of a more recent vintage. Amy Beach was a woman ahead of her time, performing as solo pianist with the Boston Symphony Orchestra by the age of 18. The same year (1885), she married Henry Beach and, no longer able to perform publicly (it would have gone against her social status), she instead settled down to composing. And delightful stuff it is, too, as Kirkby and friends demonstrate in this charming recital. A number of the songs add violin, cello, or both to the piano and voice combination. "Ecstasy," for instance, has a most effective violin part that is an ideal foil to the purity of Kirkby's voice. Other highlights include the Schumannesque Browning Songs and the amiable Shakespeare Songs (the last of which, "Fairy Lullaby," is irresistible). The final item here, "Elle et moi," is an upbeat little number that suits Kirkby's lithe soprano to perfection. Occasionally, in some of the more lushly textured songs, such as "A Mirage" and "Stella Viatoris," perhaps a fuller voice would have been preferable, but then sample "Chanson d'amour" (written when Beach was only 21 and with a wonderful cello part in addition to the piano) and try to imagine it being better sung. The purely instrumental items are played with unfailing sensitivity and elegance. The Romance is straight out of the salon, while the much later Piano Trio (though actually based on early material) packs plenty of emotion and variety into its 14 minutes. The recording is exemplary, as are the concise notes and texts and translations.

Amy Oxley Wilkinson was arguably the most widely known female Australian missionary in China and the West in the early 20th century. She was the great granddaughter of colonial chaplain Samuel Marsden and granddaughter of celebrated explorer John Oxley. After rescuing an abandoned blind boy, she founded an innovative Blind Boys School in Fuzhou which is now a major institution in Fujian Province.

Amy Lauren - Sulla Riva (2016)
MP3 CBR 320 kbps | Tracks: 13 | 52:51 min | 128 Mb
Style: New Age | Label: A.L. Productions

Meaning "on the shore" in Italian, Sulla Riva is set on the banks of the upper Mississippi river in a unique location where three rivers meet . Through this quiet mystique and hauntingly serene location, the music continues on with rich undertones interpreting the strength, diversity and power of the merging rivers, as well as the strength of an unsettled spirit and its beautiful journey to find peace. Recorded, mixed and mastered by Grammy award winning engineer Brett Huus, Sulla Riva stunningly brings to completion the unfinished story from my On Water album, while subtly referencing the elements of nature and history on the Mississippi.

Multilateral Development Banks: Governance and Finance

Multilateral Development Banks: Governance and Finance by Ihsan Ugur Delikanli
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 215 Pages | ISBN : 3319915231 | 7.41 MB

This book provides a comprehensive overview and insight of virtually all multilateral institutions involved in lending for international socio-economic development. The analysis covers twenty-five MDBs globally by classifying them in three groups based on geographical lending outreach. Unlike similar books and articles, which treat MDBs as banks, this book offers a novel perspective by addressing the specifics of multilateral lending institutions, revealing multiple aspects of their operations, going beyond the “bank” concept towards “knowledge bank,” “change agent,” and even “benchmark setter.”
