L’année même de son avènement en 1515, François Ier entre dans l’Histoire avec éclat, la victoire de Marignan lui valant aussitôt le glorieux surnom de Roi-Chevalier. Son règne fertile en événements majeurs – guerres d’Italie, duel contre Charles Quint, début de la Réforme – se place sous le signe d’un nouvel art de vivre suscité par la Renaissance …

Although highly productive and respected in his lifetime as a composer of Lieder, Robert Franz (1815–92) has since become a peripheral figure in music history. One reason may be that he avoids dramatic contrasts and instead aims at an emotional ambiguity: ‘My representation of joy is always tinged with melancholy, whilst that of suffering is always accompanied by an exquisite sensation of losing oneself’, he once wrote to Liszt. As a consequence his music appeals to those who are able ‘to admire the nuances of a charcoal drawing without longing for the colours of a painting’, to quote from Georges Starobinski’s liner notes to this recording. As they began to explore the songs of Franz, Starobinski and the baritone Christian Immler were moved by their findings to devise a programme which includes 23 of the composer’s often quite brief songs. Using the poet Heinrich Heine as their guiding star, they present these – all Heine settings but from different opus groups – in the form of two ‘imagined’ song cycles.

La casa dei Krull - Georges Simenon
Italian | 2017 | 151 Pages | ASIN: B01N4GD82G | EPUB | 674.14 KB

La casa dei Krull è ai margini del paese; e loro stessi, in quanto tedeschi, sia pur naturalizzati, ne vengono tenuti ai margini. Sono gli stranieri, i diversi. Nella loro drogheria non si servono i francesi, ma solo i marinai che a bordo delle chiatte percorrono il canale. E quando proprio davanti a casa Krull viene ripescato il cadavere di una ragazza violentata e uccisa, i sospetti non potranno che cadere su di loro. In un magistrale crescendo di tensione, Simenon ci narra il montare dell’ostilità verso un perfetto capro espiatorio, e il progressivo disgregarsi di una famiglia apparentemente esemplare, osservati dagli occhi penetranti di un cugino a sua volta diverso da loro – diverso da tutti.

Bordonove a été un écrivain prolifique qui a donné au grand public aussi bien des romans historiques que des récits historiques. Ses biographies, comme celles des rois de France, se caractérisent par des chapitres courts, denses, riches en détails, comprenant une accumulation de noms qui peut dérouter ainsi que des conversations parfois en vieux français (avec des traductions), mais montrant une sympathie évidente pour le sujet, un désir de donner une image complète de sa vie et de sa pensée, accompagnés d’un humour astucieux. …

One of the more flamboyant characters in Paris in the latter half of the 19th century, Joseph Boulogne, Chevalier de St. George (1739?-1799) was known as a championship fencer and a brilliant violinist. It is not a surprise then that his violin concertos exhibit a swaggering solo part. What you won't find is much motivic development. What you will discover are gorgeous melodies, lots of them. Although they populate all his work, they especially saturate his lyrical middle movements, one of which appears to be the basis for the haunting oboe theme from the popular BBC series, "Foyle's War".
