Aerosoft’s Twin Otter Extended is the definitive DHC-6 for Microsoft Flight Simulator X. It is a deceptively simple aircraft that is easy to fly, but difficult to fly well. It is, of course, a visual work of art but it is also a simulation of surprising depth.

In breathtaking detail, high-definition cameras capture the behaviour of this aquatic favourite. Sea otters were nearly wiped out by the fur trade 200 years ago, with only a handful remaining in remote outposts as a curious relic. But 30 years ago, biologists began resurrecting the species in a living experiment. It worked brilliantly, but with unforeseen consequences. This fascinating story examines a species brought back from extinction and the cost of man’s meddling.

It would be hard to find an opera in any area of the repertory that presents so many textual problems as Les conies d'Holfmann, largely stemming from the fact that the composer died four months before the premiere early in 1881, leaving the score incomplete. The traditional text, bringing in extra material, much of it unauthentic, and leaving out a lot, was only established this century. Arthur Hammond with the Carl Rosa Company was a pioneer in attempting to sort out a more acceptable text, and his work formed the basis of the English National Opera production at the Coliseum and also the Richard Bonynge recording for Decca. Since then the discovery of no less than 1,250 autograph pages allowed Fritz Oeser to produce his monumental edition, as used extensively in the Cambreling recording for EMI (12/88 —nla)…

The epic grandeur of Der Rosenkavalier stems not just from its immense length (over three hours) but from the all-too-human complexity of its characters–each of whom is smitten with someone else–and the endless stream of graceful melodies the composer conjures. After the tonality-stretching dissonance of Salome and especially Elektra, Strauss moved onto a different musical path here: the music's sheer gorgeousness has given this most heartbreaking of 20th-century operas its pride of place in the repertory.

Chickadees and titmice are among the most popular birds in North America, due in large part to their readiness to use bird feeders, to nest in urban gardens, and even to be trained to take food from people's hands. These attributes have also made them (and their Eurasian tit counterparts) perhaps the most intensively studied bird family in the world.
