When Ilker Arcayürek and his pianist Simon Lepper conceived the album “The Path of Life”, it was important to them that it should not be a portrait of a singer and thus another “Best of Schubert” selection, but that a story should be told. The “programme” consists of five chapters, which are seen as stages of life: Love, Longing, Search for Inner Peace, Resignation, Redemption. Playful and in love, the cycle begins. Piningly follows the section of “longing”. Love alone does not fulfil the lyrical figure, which is why “Auf der Bruck” introduces an escape from existence and the “search for inner peace”. The lyrical I wanders, initially seeking happiness in nature and coming to the realisation in “Laughing and Crying” and “The Wanderer” that no matter where one turns, happiness is short-lived and elusive. Heartbreaking reflection is followed by a farewell to friends and life, before the epilogue is intoned with “Des Fischers Liebesglück”. Similarities to the “Leiermann” at the end of “Winterreise” are not coincidental.

Like Elvis Presley, Bob Dylan, Neil Young and a few others, Bruce Springsteen transcends the boundaries of the musical genre in which one would try to encase him. Over the years, the New Jersey kid has become a symbol, both musical and ideological. Following in the footsteps of his idol Dylan, the Boss embarked on often poignant snapshots of this crumpled star banner, of the often abused American dream, in short the chronicle of an America on the fringes, of which he remains one of the most sparkling ambassadors… Few musicians have an aura as developed with their audience as he does. Since the beginning of his career in the mid-70s, he has not stopped touring, tirelessly filling stadiums and the largest halls in the world. In his early 60s, the Boss always puts so much soul into his concerts and on record, which explains the constant interest that his many fans have.

Elgar’s violin concerto – distinctively passionate and nostalgic – is one of the great late-Romantic concertos. “It is a huge piece,” says Renaud Capuçon “both in terms of its length and its romantic and noble nature.” This is Capuçon’s first recording with Sir Simon Rattle, here conducting the London Symphony Orchestra. When Rattle chose Elgar’s Enigma Variations for his inaugural concert as the LSO’s music director in 2017, he was celebrating the close historic links between the composer and the orchestra. Not only did the LSO accompany Fritz Kreisler in the premiere of the violin concerto in 1910, Elgar became its Principal Conductor the following year. Paired with the concerto on this album is his violin sonata, first performed in 1919. Renaud Capuçon, who calls the sonata “a work of nobility and tenderness”, is joined by one of the leading British pianists of today, Stephen Hough.

NIRATIAS, Chevelle's 9th studio album, stands out as the band’s most pummeling and provocative record yet. Teaming with longtime producer Joe Barresi [Tool, Queens of the Stone Age], Chevelle recorded throughout 2019 and 2020 and pieced together an intriguing and inimitable body of work, with themes that will reveal themselves soon. Featuring the lead single “Self destructor,” the album is set to be released March 5, 2021.

La nostalgie pour l’Ancien Régime prend depuis quelques années un essor sans pareil parmi le très riche vivier des musiciens français et étrangers. Si la musique était un des plus importants instruments du pouvoir de la monarchie absolue en France, elle était aussi fort goûtée à tous les niveaux de l’état et de l’aristocratie, à commencer par les souverains eux-mêmes. Le jeune Louis XIV était un excellent danseur et excellait aussi à toucher le clavecin.Partant de ce postulat, Fabien Armengaud a construit cet intéressant album sur les traces d’Etienne Richard, compositeur, instrumentiste et, objet de cette parution, professeur du jeune roi de dix-neuf ans, lequel, semble-t-il, fut très admiratif de son maître. Les trois Suites d’Etienne Richard sont ici entourées de pièces contemporaines figurant sur le même manuscrit déposé à la Bibliothèque Nationale.

Genre: Classical / Label: Sony Classical

Il presente progetto discografico di Tommaso Bencioliniè nato con lobbiettivo di raccogliere per la prima volta in un'unica registrazione tutti i lavori pensati sin dal principio da Vivaldi come pagine solistiche dedicate al flauto (da qui il titolo di copertina Original Flute Concertos). Il programma si apre col concerto in Re maggiore RV 427, caratterizzato dallincipit a triplice rintocco tipico della sinfonia avanti lopera. In questa pubblicazione proponiamo in prima assoluta - una versione alternativa del primo movimento caratterizzata da soli più complessi e virtuosistici, scritti da Vivaldi in seguito a una prima stesura strumentalmente semplice e lineare, ma poi cassati. Forse questo avvenne per favorire una più facile diffusione dellopera anche tra gli esecutori dilettanti, o forse per un semplice ripensamento, ma ci è parso degno di interesse riportare alla luce una pagina che può rivelarsi preziosa veduta sul dietro le quinte del processo compositivo, oltre che ulteriore conferma della padronanza del linguaggio strumentale flautistico da parte di Vivaldi. Segue il concerto in Sol maggiore RV 436, il quale che conobbe unottima diffusione testimoniata dal ritrovamento di copie del manoscritto a Berlino e Stoccolma e che fu per anni erroneamente attribuito al tedesco J.A. Hasse.

On his new album with l'arte del mondo, co-produced with WDR, violist Nils Mönkemeyer combines the great sonata by Paganini with arrangements by Vivaldi and Tartini - an exciting and illuminating juxtaposition All of violist Nils Mönkemeyer's albums for Sony Classical received excellent reviews and entered the German classical music charts - also because of the always interesting programs. And of course there is repertoire on his new "Italian" album that has never been heard before for viola. Of course, such an album cannot be without music by Vivaldi, and for his recording with the Ensemble l'arte del mondo under Werner Erhardt, Nils Mönkemeyer chose two beautiful concertos by Vivaldi, which were not written for the viola, but for cello and bassoon respectively: the Bassoon Concerto in G minor RV 495 and the Violoncello Concerto in G minor RV 416, both brilliantly arranged and with their lyrical timbres perfectly suited to the expressive richness of the viola.

This is classic Japanese progressive rock, circa 1989, when the genre was big over there. It’s of the keyboard laden multi-layered symphonic variety, akin to Mike Oldfield, with shades of Kitaro but with other instruments such as electric, acoustic, bass guitar and real drums. There are four tracks Highland (6:28), Nostalgia (5:50), Rogus (6:36) and the epic title track ‘Brilliant Streams’ (22:38). The music is pleasant late night, slightly new age, listening rather than the typical bombastic stuff British and American prog fans ears are tuned to, however that shouldn’t divert from the fact that this is a really good listen. Recommended for Fans of Mike Oldfield in particular!

During the late '80s, few metal bands were as controversial as Kingdom Come. With a Led Zeppelin resurgence in full bloom around this time but Page-Plant-Jones refusing to reunite for a tour, a void was created, and groups like Kingdom Come were more than happy to fill it. With a sound that was a carbon copy of the mighty Zep, Kingdom Come scored a hit with their 1988 self-titled debut, before sinking into obscurity shortly thereafter. But throughout the '90s and early 21st century, singer Lenny Wolf kept the group afloat – touring and issuing all-new studio albums (with a rotating cast of supporting players). And to show how extensive the "unplugged craze" of the '90s was, Kingdom Come even got in the act, issuing Live & Unplugged in 1996.

The pressure was on Kiss for their fifth release, and the band knew it. Their breakthrough, Alive!, was going to be hard to top, so instead of trying to recreate a concert setting in the studio, they went the opposite route. Destroyer is one of Kiss' most experimental studio albums, but also one of their strongest and most interesting. Alice Cooper/Pink Floyd producer Bob Ezrin was on hand, and he strongly encouraged the band to experiment – there's extensive use of sound effects (the album's untitled closing track), the appearance of a boy's choir ("Great Expectations"), and an orchestra-laden, heartfelt ballad ("Beth").
