April 1945. Hitler is in the center of Berlin, 10 meters underground, surrounded by four-meter thick concrete walls, safe from any air attack the Allies can throw at him. But the Russians are advancing on the ground — the Red Army is lined up along the Oder River and going for the Führer.

Since the release of his debut album Water in 2010, vocalist and songwriter Gregory Porter has been a force to be reckoned with. His very personal blend of jazz, gospel, blues and soul has drawn in fans from around the globe, particularly with the release of his Grammy Award winning third album Liquid Spirit in 2013 and his hugely successful new album Take Me To The Alley…

A major change of direction for Berlin, Count Three & Pray was an artistic triumph but a commercial disappointment. After making a name for itself playing very European-sounding synth pop, the L.A. trio recruited producer Bob Ezrin (known for his work with Alice Cooper and others) and unveiled a more hard-edged, guitar-oriented sound. From the rockin' "Trash" (which features none other than Ted Nugent – the last person one would expect to work with Berlin!) to the ballad "Pink and Velvet" (a tale of two heroin addicts' romance that is as poignant as it is disturbing), Count Three & Pray leaves no doubt just how much lead singer Terri Nunn and her colleagues were enjoying this radical change. But sadly, record buyers weren't ready for it. Despite the inclusion of the hauntingly pretty number one hit "Take My Breath Away" (included in the film Top Gun) the album didn't sell nearly as well as Pleasure Victim or Love Life. Geffen was bitterly disappointed, and Berlin soon broke up.

The young Kissin was able to work wonders in Prokofiev–above all the Sixth Sonata (Kissin in Tokyo - Yevgeny Kissin). Regrettably, the mature Kissin recently delivered highly disappointing live performances of the Second and Third Concertos (Prokofiev: Piano Concertos Nos. 2 & 3), indeed, regardless of the predictable rave in the British press. This 1994 recording of the First and Third Concertos is unquestionably very good, especially the youthful First, although competition is very strong–from Graffman/Szell (Prokofiev: Piano Concertos Nos. 1 & 3) and Argerich/Dutoit (Prokofiev: Piano Concertos Nos. 1 & 3 / Bartok: Piano Concerto No. 3) in this coupling, and from the complete sets by Berman/Gutierrez/Järvi, Toradze/Gergiev and Krainev/Kitaenko.

Bach revised his 'Johannes-Passion' regularly: he returned to it over a period of 26 years, from 1724 until his death. It is the version hallowed by tradition, established by the Kantor a year before his death, that is presented on these CDs. However, the 1725 version, equally outstanding musically, has also been recorded complete and can be downloaded as a bonus in high-resolution sound. Comparison of the two versions reveals the underlying meaning of this matchless 'Passion'.

Dédiée "très respectueusement" à Richard Wagner, la Troisième Symphonie d'Anton Bruckner fut terminée en 1873, avant d'être reprise en 1877 puis en 1888. La création, dirigée par le compositeur, se solda par un échec retentissant. Défendue à la fois par Wagner et par Gustav Mahler, la Troisième, qui se caractérise par l'ampleur de ses mouvements extrêmes, sera néanmoins redonnée à Vienne treize ans plus tard avec le plus grand succès.

The roots of American music, including the blues, R&B, and Cajun music, gave Willy DeVille's (born William Borsey) late-'70s punk band, Mink DeVille, its unique flavor. A quarter of a century later, DeVille continued to blend musical traditions and postmodern intensity. A self-taught guitarist, DeVille found his early inspiration in the blues of John Hammond Jr., Muddy Waters, and John Lee Hooker.

Premier des concertos de Mozart à être écrit dans le mode mineur, le Vingtième frappe par son dramatisme et par le caractère intimiste du soliloque pianistique. Le divertissement aristocratique s'efface ici au profit d'une confession existentielle qui préfigure le ton de Don Giovanni et la couleur du Requiem. Esquissée en octobre 1871, la Deuxième Symphonie d'Anton Bruckner est contemporaine de sa Messe en fa mineur et en cite plusieurs passages. Elle connaîtra de nombreuses retouches. Introduite par des bruissements irréels, elle fait montre dans certaines sections d'une vigueur, voire d'un déchaînement orchestral qui seront l'apanage des grandes fresques de la maturité.
