Genre: Classical / Label: Piano Classics

As his first lengthy composition for piano, Rachmaninov’s set of Chopin Variations Op.22 is a rare bird both in recital and on record, and rarer still in its complete form, as presented here. Osokins also takes the rare option, authorised by the composer, of playing the full theme both at the beginning and end of the Variations, lending to it a shape and coherence missing from several other, more storied versions.

Painter, sculptor, architect, engineer, pioneer of flight, anatomist, scientist - yet according to Vasari, Leonardo’s first job outside Florence was as a musician. “Music cannot be regarded other than as the sister of painting', said Leonardo, so for the 500th anniversary of his death in 2019, I Fagiolini and Martin Kemp offer reflections of his images in vocal music: aural Fantasia dei Vinci - art through the prism of music.

No one knows who first used the term ‘Folia’ to describe a kind of Portuguese dance, or even when it became associated with a particular theme immortalised by Arcangelo Corelli in the last of his Op.5 violin sonatas. However, as La Folia or La Follia, the theme has been improvised on and updated ever since then, all drawing on the noble dignity of the original and its simple, affective power.

London in the 1930s. Music life flourished around Georg Friedrich Händel. The Saxon composer succeeded as a Director; at the height of his fame, he surrounded himself with the best musicians of London, to which were added, of course, also many foreign composers, to spend the long breaks between acts of his operas together. Her musical contributions accompanied Handel's sumptuous dinners, for which he came out of the ditch to delight his palates. What a program!

New Age, Instrumental, Piano | Country: USA | Label: Real Music

Who's going to argue with a new age pianist who puts the images of musical notes cascading down a mountain waterfall on the cover of his greatest-hits package? That's a good matching visual for his caressing but often powerful ability to tap into the listener's emotions. Kern's compositions are fairly staid and reflective, very piano-focused, with some dramatic synth orchestra accompaniment. This disc draws from his five acclaimed discs in the Real Music catalog, mostly original compositions in addition to his gorgeous takes on "In My Life" and Elton John's little-recognized but gorgeous "We All Fall in Love Sometimes." The wistful lullaby "Children at Play" is a new track, and he creates a new orchestration for the previously released "Out of the Darkness." If Jim Brickman is too poppy for you, the quieter, less-commercial, always-exquisite intimacy of Kevin Kern just might be the ticket.

This album pays homage to the guitar. While the casual listener may recognise many of these works as favourites from the guitar canon, the majority of the repertoire wasn’t originally written for the instrument. Only the Sor and the Brouwer were originally guitar compositions. The other works started life in a different form, and stand testament to the strength and versatility of the guitar to not only play such a diverse range of repertoire, but to truly embrace it.

b. Celeste Rosso, 19 September 1926, Italy, d. 1994. As a teenager, Rosso ran away from home through parental pressure to pursue an academic career. After he was found playing trumpet in a Nice night spot, his parents relented, and he formed a small orchestra that garnered a work schedule beyond Italy to include, on one occasion, a tour of India. After a residency on Radio Turin, Rosso relocated to Rome where he became recognized as a formidable mainstream jazz player. Nevertheless, his fortune would be made in pop after he was contracted by Durium late in 1962. His debut single, ‘La Ballenta Della Tromba’, sold well nationally but 1963’s ‘Concerto Disperato’ - also self-composed - entered charts as far afield as Japan.

Herb Alpert credited "Bullish", this 1984 album, to "Herb Alpert Tijuana Brass", probably as a tie-in with a tour that Alpert went on around this time which did include four members of the original Tijuana Brass. None of the original Tijuana Brass appear on this album though, & with the glossy mid-'80s sheen of the album, it ain't exactly a return to his '60s sound either. Still, "Bullish" is an impossible-to-resist collection demonstrating that Alpert's ear for irresistible melody was as strong as ever.
