Un padre con l'esaurimento nervoso perché le vacanze di famiglia iniziano a prendere una piega sinistra; un critico del porno che, nonostante le migliori intenzioni, viene perseguitato dalla sua fama - oltre che dalla montagna di oscenità che riempiono il suo appartamento; una banda di personaggi di vecchi fumetti bloccati su un'isola deserta; un neonato portato in salvo durante una tempesta di neve; un prigioniero politico in un buco di una strada cittadina… Benvenuti a Lethem-landia: nove racconti dove l'inspiegabile è in agguato nel quotidiano, dove la banalità diventa inquietante e l'assurdità del mondo in cui viviamo si fa tragica.

Handel - Floridante (Alan Curtis) [2007]  Music

Handel wrote Floridante in 1722 for a London audience infatuated with Italian opera. The plot, like that of so many Baroque operas, was taken from ancient history and concerns romantic liaisons thrown into turmoil by political rivalries, in this case between Persia and Tyre. Handel wrote over 50 Italian operas, and it's remarkable that he was consistently able to summon such a high level of inventiveness and inspiration when faced repeatedly with librettos that must have come to look depressingly alike in the conventions of their labyrinthine plots. Handel, however, had strong enough musical and dramatic convictions that he refused to make alterations to the score of Floridante that would have changed the opera's character, after London's Royal Academy of Music informed him that changes in the performing personnel would require him to rewrite the vocal parts. Handel eventually made some adjustments, but stood firm about others – a bold position, considering the relatively low status of composers in the world of opera at the time. After the premiere with a less-than-ideal cast, Handel restored the score to his original intentions and it's that version that's heard on this recording.
