"Questo è il mio ultimo libro. Eventuali opere successive a me attribuite saranno state composte da un fantasma" scrive Vollmann nell'apertura di questo libro dedicata al lettore. E così si parte, al largo di un mare narrativo pericoloso che l'autore californiano non affrontava così di petto dai tempi di Europe Central. L'avventura è audace perché si tratta di un viaggio nello spazio e nel tempo: da una Trieste ottocentesca all'America corrotta e romantica delle high school, dai fantasmi dell'antico Giappone alla ex Iugoslavia attraversata da Vollmann negli anni della guerra nei Balcani. La bussola che tiene ferma la rotta è l'ago rosso dell'amore e dell'erotismo, ma anche la sua innegabile controparte nera, la violenza e la morte, che costituisce l'unico orizzonte possibile per legittimare un senso della nostra esistenza.

William Young proved to be one of the most important English composers in the years prior to Purcell, Jenkins and Lawes. Although he was English he spent the last years of his life in Innsbruck. Little is known about the composer and Viola da Gambist, but his collection of sonatas from 1653 was the first such collection by an Englishman. Young’s music is highly varied in style and he proves to be an adaptable, versatile composer open to the developments of his times.

EAC | APE (image+.cue, log) | Covers Included | 67:54 | 330 MB
Genre: Classical | Label: Harmonia Mundi | Catalog: 901507

Released in 1995, this Harmonia Mundi CD of five of Handel's Concerti grossi, Op. 6, is an absolute bargain and highly recommended to any lover of great music. Considering William Christie and Les Arts Florissants are among the most brilliant interpreters of Handel, that these gorgeous works afforded them an ideal platform for their talents, and that Harmonia Mundi provided the best possible engineering to capture their glorious sound, this album is an embarrassment of riches not to be missed.

Joshua lo sa da sempre: dall’altra parte del Muro c’è il nemico, un popolo pericoloso e violento da cui occorre difendersi, anche con la forza. Un giorno, per caso, scopre un tunnel sotto il Muro, e con molti timori varca il confine. Nella città in cui sbuca, non così diversa dalla sua, incontra Leila, una ragazzina con cui stringe subito amicizia. Non gli ci vuole molto per capire che di lì, come di qua, non ci sono nemici, solo persone che cercano di sopravvivere e parlarsi in un mondo difficile e ostile. Tornato a casa, decide di aiutare Leila e la sua famiglia. Ma imparerà presto che il muro che corre intorno alla sua città non è nulla al confronto di quello che circonda il cuore degli adulti.
