After a first recording of Chopin's Preludes for Piano and the First Prize of the Géza Anda Competition in 2015, which allowed him to develop his career, the young American pianist Andrew Tyson designed a new program tailored to his needs: two sonatas, one Waltz Scriabine and Mirrors of Ravel. Andrew Tyson has chosen to bring together these two composers whose language seems to be far away but which nevertheless have many similarities, in particular their use of tone, certain harmonies and dissonances. Alexandre Scriabine and Maurice Ravel also lived in the same city, at the same time, without ever meeting: Debussy, Ravel and the French musical elite of the time considered their Russian colleagues as coarse and uneducated. Yet, listening to their music, even though their approach to piano and composition could not be any different, they use colors in the same way. For Andrew Tyson, "Ravel is a perfectionist of elegance, where every detail is calculated and shines like a crystal; Scriabin is like an erratic flame - passionate, disorderly, spontaneous and erotic."

Andrew Bird has always been highly respected and has held a captive audience with his story telling prowess, but it's with his new album, "Are You Serious", that he has made a breakthrough record. Produced by Tony Berg, the album propels him into a new category of American songwriters. It's his most direct lyrically to date with key contributions from Fiona Apple and Blake Mills.

The violin concertos of Belgian-born composer/virtuoso Henri Vieuxtemps have been recorded by various players, including the young Russian-American virtuoso Misha Keylin heard here. But these shorter pieces, which would have been the stock-in-trade of Vieuxtemps' active touring life (during one American tour he made 121 appearances in six months, without benefit of planes, automobiles, or in many cases trains), are a good deal rarer. They don't have the main virtue of the concertos, which is that there's a certain amount of structural interest to go with the Paganini-like fireworks, but they're a great deal of fun.

It's nearly impossible to single out any of Aretha Franklin's early-'70s albums for Atlantic as being her best, particularly given the breadth of her output during this era. In terms of albums rather than singles, it's probably her strongest era, and if you count live albums like Amazing Grace, choosing a standout or a favorite record isn't any easier. Yet of this stunning era, Young, Gifted and Black certainly ranks highly among her studio efforts, with many arguing that it may be her greatest. The album is Top 10 Gold-certified. The album won Aretha a 1972 Grammy Award for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance of the year.

With his new album, Are You Serious, Andrew Bird has widened the breadth of his art by directly reflecting his own human experience. With key contributions from Fiona Apple and Blake Mills, Are You Serious attains a level of expression that's a personal, evolutionary leap. Are You Serious is the second record Bird has made with producer Tony Berg, following 2005's breakthrough The Mysterious Production of Eggs.

The different versions of Hamlet constitute one of the most vexing puzzles in Shakespeare studies. In this groundbreaking work, Shakespeare scholar Terri Bourus argues that this puzzle can only be solved by drawing on multiple kinds of evidence and analysis, including book and theatre history, biography, performance studies, and close readings.

Features the high-fidelity SHM-CD format (compatible with standard CD player) and the latest 24bit 192kHz remastering. A real stroke of genius from pianist Andrew Hill – and a surprising one too! After an initial legacy of groundbreaking experimental sides for Blue Note, Hill returns to his "grass roots" on this excellent session of straight ahead, fairly funky, soul jazz piano tunes! In the notes, Hill claims a desire to get back to the people – and in a really unusual turn, he shakes off his previous modernist trappings and goes for territory that's much more in the mode of Lee Morgan, Horace Silver, or Hank Mobley on Blue Note!
