Neve (22) liebt ihr Turmhaus und ihr Leben in der magischen Welt. Sie kümmert sich um die Neuankömmlinge der Akademie, und es macht ihr Spaß, für sie in der realen Welt einkaufen zu gehen. Während sie durch Berlin fliegt, dient sie nebenher einigen Menschen als "guter Engel", und eigentlich könnte alles für immer so bleiben, wie es ist. Inzwischen ist sie als Äther-Begabte den echten Engeln fast ähnlicher als den Menschen. Sie braucht weder Schlaf noch Essen noch Trinken, aber vor allem fühlt sie sich durch ihre Abwendung von den sinnlichen Seiten des Menschseins gut geschützt vor dem Auf und Ab der Liebe. Allerdings hat sich Neve da gewaltig getäuscht…

Kühle Morgenluft und ein rosa verfärbter Himmel über Berlin. Vor Kira (17) liegt der erste Tag des letzten Schuljahres. Als sie sich ausrechnet, dass sie jetzt nur noch 250 Schultage überstehen muss, um endlich achtzehn zu sein und bei ihren Eltern auszuziehen, ahnt sie nicht, wie sehr ihre gewohnte Welt bald Kopf stehen wird. Zuerst trifft sie die Liebe zu dem neuen Schüler Tim wie ein Blitzschlag. Gleichzeitig überfallen sie fiebrig-aggressive Schübe und seltsame Wahrnehmungsstörungen. Was ist nur los? Will sie ihre Verknalltheit in Tim den Mädchenschwarm nicht wahrhaben, oder dreht sie durch? Nichts dergleichen trifft zu…

Revealing and frank, this highly engaging biography tells the story of an American original, California's Big Daddy, Jesse Unruh (1922-1987), a charismatic man whose power reached far beyond the offices he held. Unruh, who was born into Texas sharecropper poverty, became a larger-than-life figure and a principal architect and builder of modern California–first as an assemblyman, then as assembly speaker, and finally, as state treasurer. He was also a great character: a combination of intelligence, wit, idealism, cynicism, woman-chasing vulgarity, charm, drunken excess, and political skill all wrapped up in one big package…

John Lee Hooker, as anyone with a decent-sized blues collection knows, recorded for a virtual parade of labels early in his career, including Chess, although his stays with the company were fairly brief. Hooker's best early recordings, most would agree, were issued on Modern and Vee-Jay, not Chess.

The first volume of this series (Naxos 8.550761) mixed the first two sonatas of Field's Op. 1 with the first nine Nocturnes. The Sonata Op. 1 No. 3 in C minor logically appears on this second volume, in a most successful performance. Dedicated to Clementi, the first movement shows distinct tendencies towards 'Sturm und Drang'. Neither movement is fast: the concluding Rondo (marked Allegretto scherzando) is bursting with wit and charm to balance the stress of the first. This piece alone justifies the modest outlay for this disc. The remaining tracks, the next nine Nocturnes in the series, demonstrate Frith's sensitivity. Importantly, he shows a laudable restraint with the sustaining pedal. His sweet cantabile is the result of an acute musical sensitivity, and he never overblows the scale of these miniatures.

Originally released in 2001 on Cannonball Records, this album contains 12 'blues flavored' songs. John Kay, leader of one of rock's most venerable bands, Steppenwolf, has returned to the folk/blues roots of his troubador days with the release of his fourth solo recording "Heretics and Privateers". The musical subtlety and emotional depth of the albums 12 composistions feature provacative lyrics which offer a gritty view of contemporary life, surveying the human toll of institutional callousness with unflinching clarity. Kay's lyrics aren't the gripes of a chronic malcontect but the deeply felt observations of a first-generation American whose appreciation of his adopted country's promise and potential is balanced by an awareness of it's lapses…

Fifteen years before Chopin wrote his first “nocturne”, Irish pianist/composer John Field composed his Nocturne No. 1 in E-flat major, followed by at least 15 more pieces in the same style. In these short works for solo piano, Field–who was one of the most celebrated pianists in the world during the first quarter of the 19th century–put form to the idea of a contemplative, lyrical composition, specifically tailored to the piano’s expressive capabilities. These “night” pieces are primarily characterized by a dominant, gracefully flowing melody, with most of the harmonic activity in the pianist’s left hand. Although other pianists have recorded at least some of Field’s Nocturnes–most notably John O’Conor (Telarc) and Miceál O’Rourke (Chandos)–Benjamin Frith’s own uniquely inflected, poetic readings have a satisfying aura of intimacy cast in the warm colors of his well-tempered, expertly recorded piano. Although O’Conor’s playing is more lyrical, with more fluid legatos, Frith generally takes more time–and these invariably lovely pieces blossom just as fully and brilliantly.

Le roi Arthur, les chevaliers de la Table ronde, Merlin l’Enchanteur, Excalibur, l’épée magique… autant de légendes qui font partie de notre patrimoine. Mais derrière ces légendes se cache l’Histoire. L’histoire d’une époque cruelle et sanglante. La Table ronde évoque pour nous une compagnie de joyeux lurons. Or, ils ont existé, ces preux chevaliers, qui se faisaient tuer, pour l’honneur ou pour l’amour d’une dame. …
