Hidden away in the Himalayas are beguiling monkeys unlike any others of their kind. Only recently discovered, Yunnan snub-nosed monkeys have mesmerizing faces, with tiny noses, almond eyes and large pink lips that unavoidably call to mind the results of too much plastic surgery. Their elfin-like young have ears like Yoda. They are exclusive stars of their enchanted mountain valley, found not far from an ancient city named after the famous mythical paradise called Shangri-La. There are only a few thousand of them in the world. Representing the meticulous and ambitious work of an all-Chinese film company led by award-winning filmmaker, Xi Zhinong, this spectacular film is the true story of one family of these monkeys, followed by an intrepid team of filmmakers, rangers and scientists for two years. At the heart of the story are two young monkeys, half-brothers, who make their way in the world by very different paths - one protected and indulged, the other mostly a neglected and adventurous survivor.

Steve Vai's first album for Sony/Legacy is Stillness in Motion, a double-live set – it's available as a two-CD/two-DVD package – that captures the guitarist's October 12, 2012 concert at Club Nokia in Los Angeles. This is, for want of a better word, something of an extravaganza: 22 tracks over the course of 130 minutes, Vai dipping into nearly every phase of his career. He's as precise on-stage as he is in the studio, which may mean Stillness in Motion lacks the kinetic energy that is the hallmark of so many great live albums. What it has instead is fluidity: Vai and his backing band may specialize in pyrotechnics, but there's a grace to the playing on even the frenetic numbers, and that lyricism may be eye-opening to skeptics. To the converted, it is certainly a good reason to dive into this generous live set.

Sonya Yoncheva is one of today’s fastest rising young opera stars. The young Bulgarian soprano first gained international prominence when she took first prize in the 2010 edition of Plácido Domingo’s prestigious Operalia competition at the Teatro alla Scala in Milan. She has collaborated with many artists from the world of opera, and also cross genres: with names from the rock and pop world such as Sting and Elvis Costello, as well as with outstanding classical musicians like Plácido Domingo and Jonas Kaufmann. ‘Paris, mon amour’ was recorded in one of Europe's most prestigious concert halls - the Palau de la Música in Valencia, under the baton of renowned conductor Frédéric Chaslin. This debut album concentrates on a particularly appealing period, the ‘Belle Époque’ 1871 to 1914. of cultural life. The ‘Belle Époque’ eminently suits Sonya, who communicates both elegance and panache onstage, both in her distinctive, multicolored voice and her irresistible personality. Forthcoming residency at the Royal Opera House London in "Verdi 'La Traviata' - Violetta". 'OPERA' magazines "Record Of The Month" for May. The Guardian quotes "Sonya Yoncheva is surely a star in the making".

Drummer Dan Brubeck, son of the late Dave Brubeck, pays homage to his parents in a most appropriate way. He puts the proper frame around the songbook created by his mother and father over their 70-year performance career. Using the saxophone quartet format his father blazed jazz trails with, Brubeck leads his quartet through 14 Brubeck originals at Vancouver's Cellar recorded in August 2013. Bassist Adam Thomas proves to be a fine vocalist for the special material, never obscuring the pieces with technical attempts to impress. Urbane and amiable, this collection has been a long time coming and now that it is here, we can fully appreciate the art of Dave and Iola Brubeck.

Innovatively fusing traditional ethnic musics with state-of-the-art rhythms, the work of Deep Forest was best typified by their 1993 "Sweet Lullaby," which brought together the contemporary sounds of ambient techno with a haunting traditional lullaby from the Solomon Islands. The project was primarily the work of the French keyboardists and programmers Eric Mouquet and Michael Sanchez; after the latter returned from Africa with boxes of records he'd picked up across the continent, he and Mouquet began sampling the native sounds for use with their atmospheric dance tracks, and with the aid of producer Dan Lacksman, their eponymous debut LP appeared in 1993…

In his second album of French song from the 19th and 20th centuries – following the ground-breaking Opium, released in 2009 – countertenor Philippe Jaroussky explores settings of poems by Paul Verlaine (1844-96). One of France’s most revered fin-de-siècle poets and a pioneer of the decadent and symbolist movements, Verlaine famously declared his philosophy in the first line of Art poétique in 1874: ‘De la musique avant toute chose’ – ‘music before all else.’ In his poetry, the sound and the shape of each line carries meaning and expression, adding resonance to the words, which often evoke a twilit world of ambiguous emotions.

Classical / Baroque / Violin

Violinist James Ehnes has firmly established himself as a master of the modern repertoire and to a lesser extent, the Romantic, so his album of Antonio Vivaldi's perennial violin concertos, The Four Seasons, Giuseppe Tartini's "Devil's Trill" Sonata, and Jean-Marie Leclair's "Tambourin" Sonata is an unexpected detour into the Baroque. The fame and popularity of these pieces guarantees Ehnes an audience, and he, like everyone else, shouldn't be criticized for recording them, though his choice of the modern Sydney Symphony Orchestra for the Vivaldi, and Fritz Kreisler's arrangement of the Tartini for violin and piano, suggests that he isn't really trying to compete with most contemporary recordings, least of all the various period-style releases.

Sun-Tse, né sujet du Roi de Tsi , était l'homme le plus versé qu'il y ait eu dans l'art militaire. L'ouvrage qu'il a composé et les grandes actions qu'il a faites sont une preuve de sa profonde capacité et de son expérience consommée en ce genre. Avant même qu'il eût acquis cette grande réputation qui le distingua depuis dans toutes les Provinces qui composent aujourd'hui l'Empire, et dont la plupart portaient alors le nom de Royaume, son mérite était connu dans tous les lieux voisins de sa patrie. Le Roi de Ou avait quelques démêlés avec les Rois de Tchou et de Ho-Lou …
