The genre of the symphony played a major role throughout the creative life of Pyotr Tchaikovsky. He composed his 1st symphony at the age of 26, & his 6th & last symphony – the Pathйtique – in 1893, the year in which he died. Whereas his 3 last symphonies have remained an integral part of the concert repertoire, performances of his 1st 3 symphonies are still quite rare. Unfairly so, as they are unique individual works, artistic expressions of a high quality. Tchaikovsky defined the symphony as “the most lyrical of musical forms. After all, is it not meant to express that for which there are no words, but which forces itself out of the soul, impatiently waiting to be uttered?”. With these words, Tchaikovsky makes us aware of the special nature of his symphonies. Primarily, they provided him with a musical outlet for the elaboration of his emotions, his mental & spiritual processes.

Charlton Lee of Del Sol says it’s: “Amongst the amazing artistic collaborations that Del Sol has had in our 22-years of music making,..” Born in Launceston in 1929, Peter Sculthorpe was educated at the University of Melbourne, and Wadham College, Oxford. He is an Emeritus Professor at the University of Sydney, where he began teaching in 1964.

From the Middle Ages until the nineteenth century, plainchant was sung polyphonically all over Europe - in a great variety of ways. It is no exaggeration to say that for centuries it epitomized the sound of church music for congregations. Fauxbourdon was a means of solemnizing the Divine Office by embellishing the plainchant melody. This double CD featuring Dominique Vellard and the Ensemble Gilles Binchois offers a selection of this music that reflects the variety and diversity of four centuries of French polyphonic plainchant.

Rudy Van Gelder Remaster - 2006

Thelonious Monk’s years as a Prestige recording artist were tough times for the legendary composer/pianist. Unable to work in New York clubs due to the unjust loss of his cabaret card, and misunderstood when not ignored by listeners as well as many musicians. The present collection, which samples three of those sessions, appeared as critics and fans were beginning to catch up to Monk’s singular genius and remains one of the best introductions to his iconoclastic brilliance. Three tracks feature leading Monk disciple Sonny Rollins, hitting early peaks on two standards and stretching out on “Friday the 13th,” plus a pair of tracks in which Monk’s greatest studio trio (with Percy Heath on bass and Art Blakey on drums) introduce the classic “Work” and “Nutty”.

The position of legendary figure is usually reserved for a deceased musician who has played two decades before. It usually requires this posthumous status and span of time, for the various stories concerning him to grow into a legend but it took a very much alive Thelonious Monk only five years to surround himself with an air of mystery and receive the title “High Priest of Bebop” in the Forties.

Released only eight months after Queen's debut, Queen II consolidated the band's pioneering sound and continued to build momentum for the group, charting significantly higher than the first album on both sides of the Atlantic. The band even enjoyed its first hit, Seven Seas Of Rhye, a British top 10 single. Thought by many critics to have been highly underrated, Queen II has come to be considered not only one of the group's most inspired, but a classic of 70s rock included on many "best of" and essential album lists.
