As the creator of piano Peter Tchaikovsky in the West have become less well known than as Symphony or opera composer, are what may also remember that he has written besides a great Piano Sonata in practice only small character pieces and "Songs without Words" in the Russian romance style - which offer little incentive for sparkling virtuosity. For Lev Vinocour was an incentive to imagine the composer Tchaikovsky piano with his best series, the "seasons" and a selection of unknown internal and external processing.

"The Terror" is the long-awaited release by The Flaming Lips. Produced by Dave Fridmann, it features nine original compositions that reflect a darker-hued spectrum than previous works, along with a more inward-looking lyrical perspective than one might expect. The Terror is a bold and expressive journey that has evolved over the band’s nearly 30-year career of sonic delights that ebbs and flows with breathtaking splashes of darkness and light, pleasure and pain, chaos and order. Absolutely essential.

If Jackson Browne had convincingly lowered the bar set by his first three albums on his fourth and fifth ones, his sixth, "Hold Out", found him once again seeking some measure of satisfaction, albeit in reduced circumstances. His songs were less philosophical, but they were also more personal. In "Of Missing Persons", he once again took on a eulogy as his subject, but unlike "Song to Adam" or "For a Dancer", there the song was directed to his late friend's daughter and encouraged her recovery: it was more a song for the living than for the dead.

Jackson Browne's messages had always seemed so important that one tended to overlook the sheer songwriting craft that went into his work, craft that was apparent, for example, on his 1982 single "Somebody's Baby", which became his biggest hit ever (and which appears on none of his albums, only being available on the soundtrack to Fast Times at Ridgemont High), and on songs like "Downtown", a street-life portrait on his seventh album, "Lawyers in Love".

Jackson Browne continued amassing a repertoire best suited to an Amnesty International benefit on his second highly politicized album, "World in Motion". War, homelessness, and Oliver North (though not by name) were condemned; freedom, truth, and Nelson Mandela were praised. Now and then, Browne drew parallels between the personal and the political, notably in the double-edged "Anything Can Happen", but for the most part he sermonized, frequently adopting the generalized terms and reasoning that sermons usually employ.

Alison Balsom must be counted among the most popular Classical trumpeters before the public today. Yet, she has gained wide international recognition only since the turn of the century. Her first recording, Music for Trumpet and Organ, was issued in 2002, and her first major award was given to her in 2006, when the jurors of the Classical BRIT Awards named her Young British Classical Performer. Other awards and citations followed and her concert appearances quickly became major events across England, Europe, Asia, and the U.S. Of course, her supermodel looks and charismatic manner haven't hurt her career, but in the end it has been her talent on the trumpet, forged by an all-encompassing technique and deft interpretive sense, that landed her at the top.

We owe these two masterpieces to the musical friendships Mozart made during his years in Vienna. The celestial beauties of the Quintet K581 were tailor-made for the great clarinettist Anton Stadler, while the Quartet K421, more severe in tone, is one of the six Mozart dedicated to his ‘caro amico’ Joseph Haydn. Here then is the ideal programme for the four friends of the Arcanto Quartett to show their affinities with the Mozartian repertoire.

One of Nina Simone's classics from her days at Philips, this 1965 album includes three songs that have come to be closely identified with her: Ne me quitte pas by Jacques Brel, Feeling Good and the title track, a cover of the Screamin' Jay Hawkins song, which became a successful R&B single for her. In fact Simone was so closely associated with the song she chose to use the same title for her 1990 autobiography.
