A legend in his lifetime for his interpretations of Beethoven, Herbert von Karajan recorded a large swathe of the composer's oeuvre. Here, Karajan conducts the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra, with violin soloist Anne-Sophie Mutter.

You have to hand it to Strauss: using his success as the basis for a 40-minute tone poem suggests no limit to confidence. It was, of course, the end of the century (1898) and a self-celebratory mood was in the air. Yet there's no lack of conviction in the music either. From a powerful opening depicting "the hero" (the composer), we move through a vicious scherzo–the critics!–to an extended love scene with the hero's companion.

Gundula Janowitz had a very beautiful voice that critics like to describe as "creamy," whatever that means. Strauss had a life-long love affair with the soprano voice. He even married one–not just the voice, the whole woman, of course. His Four Last Songs constitute his dying tribute, and they are probably the most hedonistically gorgeous vocal works in existence.

A new recording of Weber's piano concertos was obviously long overdue, and this one fits the bill more than adequately, coming as it does generously coupled with the much better known Konzertstück and in first-rate sound quality from HMV. Not the least of its virtues is the light it casts on the origins of the piano idiom of Chopin and Liszt and, in the case of the Konzertstück, on the very foundations of the romantic concerto. I wouldn't envy any historian out to determine who was responsible for which innovation in the first two decades of the nineteenth century, but certainly to hear so many fully-formed romantic textures in music dating from 1810-21 is an instructive, not to say startling, experience.

In light of the "chill-out" trend of the 1990s, major labels released many albums of slow, meditative pieces to appeal to listeners who wanted relaxing or reflective background music. Deutsche Grammophon's vaults are full of exceptional recordings of classical orchestral music, and the performances by Herbert von Karajan and the Berlin Philharmonic are prominent in the label's catalog. The slow selections on Karajan: Adagio are in most cases drawn from larger compositions, though these movements are frequently anthologized as if they were free-standing works. Indeed, many have come to think of the Adagietto from Gustav Mahler's Symphony No. 5 as a separate piece in its own right, largely because of its evocative use in the film Death in Venice. Furthermore, the famous Canon by Johann Pachelbel is seldom played with its original companion piece, the Gigue in D major, let alone in its original version for three violins and continuo; it most often appears in an arrangement for strings.

Herbert Marcuse - Teoria critica del desiderio. Scritti e interventi Vol. IV

Il confronto critico con la psicoanalisi di Freud è uno dei grandi punti fermi del pensiero di Marcuse. In questo quarto volume dei suoi scritti inediti il filosofo propone la sua visione del desiderio, erotico ed estetico, come leva per la liberazione, come la principale forza che si oppone alla realtà unidimensionale del tardo-capitalismo. I saggi marcusiani che sono raccolti in questo volume si collocano all'incrocio tra psicoanalisi ed estetica. L'indagine sul carattere sovversivo del desiderio e sulle potenzialità liberatorie della dimensione estetica è svolta attraverso il confronto con psicanalisti e scrittori, con i quali Marcuse discute o polemizza in queste pagine. Vi si incontrano testi originalissimi e di diversa natura: dalle considerazioni sulla musica alle lettere scambiate con Samuel Beckett, fino alle riflessioni, in dialogo ideale con Adorno, su che senso abbia ancora la poesia dopo Auschwitz.

La critica della società tecnologica avanzata è il filo conduttore che attraversa tutto lo sviluppo del pensiero marcusiano e che collega l'uomo a una dimensione, il testo che nel '68 divenne il manifesto dei movimenti di contestazione, con le riflessioni e gli scritti raccolti in questo volume. Attraverso gli inediti pubblicati in questo libro (il terzo della serie "Scritti e interventi di Herbert Marcuse") si può ripercorrere tutta l'elaborazione marcusiana intorno a temi oggi attualissimi come le implicazioni sociali della moderna tecnologia, il rapporto tra tecnica e libertà, il ruolo dell'individuo nella società industriale avanzata, il rapporto tra gli sviluppi della tecno-scienza e le trasformazioni della politica. Spaziando tra critica sociale e riflessione filosofica, Marcuse si confronta con i grandi pensatori del Novecento (da Husserl a Heidegger a Sartre) e con gli inquietanti interrogativi etici e sociali posti dallo sviluppo della tecnica.
