“…Tebaldi proved at the Maggio Musicale at Florence in 1953 under Mitropoulos that Leonora was to be among her most successful roles, and here she confirms the fact in spades with her lustrous, effortlessly shaped and eloquent traversal of the role. By her side she has the incomparable Corelli, singing his first Don Alvaro, and revealing that his brilliant, exciting yet plangent tone is precisely the right instrument to project Alvaro's loves and sorrows. At this stage of his career his thrilling upper register and incisive delivery of the text were at their most potent, as he makes abundantly clear in aria and duet. As his antagonist, Bastianini sings with the kind of Verdian élan seemingly now extinct among his breed. He may not be the most subtle of Verdian baritones, but here his macho approach ideally suits Don Carlo's vengeful imprecations.” (Gramophone Classical Music Guide)

Simona Parrinello - Con Alma (2016)  Music

Simona Parrinello - Con Alma (2016)
MP3 320 kbps CBR | 56:12 min | 131 MB
Genre: Vocal Jazz | Label: Dot Time Records

Inspired by two of the leading figures in the history of jazz music, Duke Ellington and Billy Strayhorn, Con Alma is closely tied to African-American music tradition and celebrates the relationship between composition and poetry. Its descriptive strength lies in the close relationship between voice, lyrics and music. Con Alma pays tribute to these two composers not only by interpreting a selection of their compositions, but through a deep inspiration that lingers through the original compositions presented on the album. Simona Parrinello's recording debut is a masterpiece of European vocal jazz and shows an artist at the top of her game.

All of these are live recordings so the sound is quite variable. The standard square box contains separate soft plastic sleeves in which the cds are inserted. The advantage is that the cds are well protected (minor risk for scrapes compared to cardboard), but there is no information printed on the sleeve since it is made of plastic. There is some basic information printed on each cd (name, composer, cd #, the act/s and the date of the recording). There is also a small 24pg booklet that introduces the box including some photos as well as content description for each disc (opera, singers, time and location as well as a list of the separate tracks). I have been collecting these boxes for a while and always find it worthwhile as there are gems nicely interspersed in these collections. By Moonfish

Pete Molinari is fast establishing himself as one of the UK’s most exciting musical talents. Pete completed his fourth album "Theosophy” in early 2014, recording most of the original album tracks with Jim and Rob Homes at Humbug Studios on the Isle Of Wight, then adding the talents of producer Liam Watson, acclaimed DJ/re-mixer Andrew Weatherall, Grammy award-winning producer/mixer Tchad Blake and guest musicians Dan Auerbach and Barrie Cadogan to the process. It was important to Pete to have the contributions of all of these diverse and creative minds, which meant taking time with the recording was essential.t the moment, whether the present or the past. I just go about things my own way.” That’s Theosophy.

Alfred Schnittke - String Quartets - Complete (Molinari Quartet)

Label: ATMA - Date: 2011

The obvious point of reference here is tile Kronos Quartet's cycle of Schnittke string quartets, released as a complete edition in 1998. But after hearing Quatuor Molinari play the same pieces I don't think I'll be going back. In fact, if anyone wants it …
The quartet's decision to open with Schnittke's Third Quartet is a puzzle at first, until you realise that everything that happens in the first two quartets reaches an uneasy stylistic resolution in the Third, written in 1983. The piece is rich in quotation: in the first few bars alone bits of Lassus, Beethoven's Grosse Fuge and Shostakovich's DSCH motif (the booklet-note mentions that 'SCH' had obvious significant for Schnittke: interesting point that I hadn't noticed) hove into view. Or rather, as played by the Quatuor Molinari, Schnittke's borrowed material hangs in the middle distance, the ……..
