Reprise Record's NATASHA, PIERRE & THE GREAT COMET OF 1812 (Original Broadway Cast Recording) was the album I was looking forward to the most from this Broadway season, and it truly doesn't disappoint. It is a stunning capture of my favorite new musical of the season, and it will be a showpiece in any musical theatre aficionado's collection of cast albums for years to come.

Gilels recorded this work several times, and the dierence to the other stereo recording in print is evident instantly. Just play the rst 10 seconds from the Gilels/Maazel recording and then this one: RCA in 1955 captured a cleaner, better, richer sound than EMI engineers 20 years later. So you are instantly captivated by the sound alone; and then follows a performance with tremendous sweep and boldness. Reiner is denitely instrumental in helping this along: he was a far better conductor than Maazel could ever aspire to. In a word: don't worry too much about niggling imperfections.

"1812" is dedicated to one of the most remarkable and dramatic periods in history – the Napoleonic Wars from 1803 to 1815. They were a continuation of the wars originally sparked off by the French Revolution of 1789 and threw Europe's armies into mobilization on an unprecedented scale. August 26, 1812 on the 124-km west of Moscow, in a field near the village of Borodino, two great armies fought final preparations for one of the bloodiest battles of the era. A quarter of a million people, more than a thousand guns. Here Borodino decided the fate of the entire campaign, the fate of Moscow, the fate of the whole of Russia.

The War of 1812 is the Forgotten War, the last time the USA and Britain fought against one another, but it created some of the most iconic images in the American Story; there's the defence of Fort McHenry and the writing of The Star-Spangled Banner; a dying captain coining the motto of the US Navy "Don't give up the ship!"; and the burning of the White House and Capitol Building by the British. For Canadians, the war signals the birth of the Canadian national spirit as Britain's North American colonies beat off repeated invasion attempts by the USA, and nowhere was the struggle for that spirit more fraught than in Upper Canada, what is now Ontario. During the Bicentenary year of The War of 1812, Gareth Davis examines how visitors can rediscover the past as well as enjoy some of the signature tourism experiences of both the Capital Region and Ontario. The War of 1812 Trail brings to life the past and present of one of the most important episodes in both American and Canadian history.

EAC 1.0b3 | FLAC tracks level 8 | Cue+Log+M3U | Full Scans 300dpi | 250MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Classical

Giya Kancheli’s tenth album on ECM New Series offers two recent large-scale choral works with unconventional instrumental forces. While the composer has frequently stated that his love for music began with Glenn Miller and Duke Ellington rather than with Bach and Schubert let alone with traditional Georgian polyphony, his highly compelling new compositions mirror impressions of both Western and Georgian sacred music without actually alluding to religion itself. Written in 2003 and 2005 respectively, both “Little Imber“ and “Amao Omi” are melancholic musings about the absurdity of war in conjunction with the power of beauty.
