From Elvis in Memphis was released in June 1969 to favorable reviews. It was recorded at American Sound Studio in Memphis in January and February 1969 under the direction of producer Chips Moman and backed by its house band, informally known as "The Memphis Boys". The album peaked at number 13 on the Billboard 200, number two on the country charts and number one in the United Kingdom, and its single "In the Ghetto" reached number three on the Billboard Hot 100. The album was certified gold by the Recording Industry Association of America in 1970. In later years, it garnered further favorable reviews, while it was ranked number 190 on Rolling Stone magazine's 2003 list of the 500 greatest albums of all time.

One-half of the imponderably titled From Memphis to Vegas/From Vegas to Memphis (later issued as a separate album, Elvis in Person at the International Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada), captures Elvis from the summer of 1969, while the exhilaration of conquest was still evident. It's a nice compromise between mere entertainment and the revelatory: The first few songs are old hits to pull you in; the second side opens with a roaring medley of "Mystery Train" and Rufus Thomas's "Tiger Man" and leads to a staggering seven-minute "Suspicious Minds." The studio album, ten tracks from the previous Memphis sessions, are a letdown and, even at the time of release, the two-fer concept seemed ill conceived.

Herb Alpert and the Tijuana Brass sold more albums than almost anyone else in the '60s, so it's no surprise that any goofball with a trumpet would try to cash in on their effortlessly enjoyable, upbeat, instrumental style. And, indeed, there were plenty of those. Making a vocal album, however, is another story. Who in their right mind would attempt an entire album of singing new words to famous instrumentals? But that is what Big Band veterans the Modernaires did, setting lyrics to Alpert & Co.'s numerous hit tunes. The tight-harmony vocal quintet used to sing with the likes of Glen Miller back in the '40s, so presumably this was their attempt to get, er, "mod."

The Concerto “Melante” ensemble (the name is an anagram of “Telemann”) has already earned high praise for its first CD, “Spirituosa,” of works by Telemann: “Whoever thinks they know Telemann should buy this CD so that their knowledge is decidedly expanded.” (Toccata 2011)

Über den Komponisten Balthasar Fritsch ist nur wenig bekannt. Zwischen 1570 und 1580 in Leipzig geboren, war er Komponist sowie Mitglied der Leipziger Stadtpfeifer. Umso beeindruckender sind die Kompositionen Fritschs. Die vierstimmigen Werke seiner ersten Veröffentlichung "Primitiae Musicales" stehen ganz in der Tradition der Tanzmusik, mit klarer, leichtfüßiger Rhythmik, Vogelstimmen und Echos.

Ian Bostridge, one of the outstanding tenors of our time, earning widespread praise for his intelligent and nuanced performances, resumes his partnership with Julius Drake for their latest disc of Schubert Lieder. From Schubert s joyful tribute to the natural world in Der Einsame to the desolation of Der Wanderer an den Mond , this delicately shaped programme explores the theme of longing in various guises. This release, the third volume in this Wigmore Hall Live series, captures some of the most exquisitely crafted songs of the 19th century.

Mozart’s Concerto K 107 and selected Haydn divertimentos, all arranged for pianoforte, two violins and cello. Brilliant musical entertainment at the highest level in unique performances.

For their dhm release the musicians chose early concertos and divertimentos by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Joseph Haydn (namely Concerto K 107 and Divertimentos Hob. XIV: 4, XIV: 9, XIV: 7 and XIV: 8), which they recorded in arrangements for hammerklavier, two violins and cello. These pieces, all written primarily for domestic use, offer brilliant musical entertainment at the highest level.
