The map of Canada offers to the eye and to the imagination a vast country more than three thousand miles in
width. Its eastern face presents a broken outline to the wild surges of the Atlantic. Its western coast commands
from majestic heights the broad bosom of the Pacific. Along its southern boundary is a fertile country of lake and plain and woodland, loud already with the murmur of a rising industry, and in summer waving with the golden wealth of the harvest. But on its northern side Canada is set fast against the frozen seas of the Pole and the desolate region of barren rock and ice-bound island that is joined to the polar ocean by a common mantle of snow. For hundreds and hundreds of miles the vast fortress of ice rears its battlements of shining glaciers. The unending sunshine of the Arctic summer falls upon untrodden snow. The cold light of the aurora illumines in winter an endless desolation. There is no sound…

Bayon was founded in 1971 in the former GDR. The nucleus of the band consists of the two multi-instrumentalist and founding members Christoph Theusner (Guitar, flute, piano, percussion ) and Cambodian musician Sonny Thet (Cello, guitar, percussion) who studied classical music in Weimar and developed an unique style of combining the Khmer-Pentatonic with elements of Classic, Jazz and Rock. Lead by Theusner and Thet the band played with changing members a mixture of Folk, Classic, Jazz and Rock. Between 1977 and 1982 Bayon released four records for the East-German 'Amiga' label. Even so Theusner and Thet concentrated since the 80's on solo projects Bayon continues to exist and released several new records.

This is a wonderful collection of all the great composer's known works, and is a must buy for anyone who enjoy's Rachmaninoff. While most of the recordings are not perhaps the absolute best that are out there, they are all still, for the most part, quite good. The only real issues I can find with this set are two rather small ones. On the recording of the symphonic poem The Isle of the Dead, there is an odd static-like sound that starts at about 17 minutes into the piece, which then disappears briefly, before reappearing once more. It is rather irritating, especially considering that the rest of the recording is very nice.

By the time Oliver Nelson and his big band had recorded Fantabulous in March of 1964 for Argo, the great composer, saxophonist, conductor, and arranger was a man about town in New York. He had released some truly classic dates of his own as a leader in smaller group forms – Blues and the Abstract Truth and Full Nelson among them – and had done arrangement work for everyone from Eddie "Lockjaw" Davis and Johnny Hodges, Nancy Wilson, Frank Wess, King Curtis, Etta Jones, Jimmy Smith, Jack Teagarden, Betty Carter, Billy Taylor, and Gene Ammons, to name more than a few. For Fantabulous, he took his working big band to Chicago for a gig sponsored by Daddy-O-Daylie, a famous local disc jockey.

The Royal Ballet presents a stellar cast in Kenneth MacMillan's Mayerling, filmed in 1994, with John Lanchbery's sumptuous scoring of music by Franz Liszt. The dramatic soundscape is matched by MacMillan’s penetrating interpretation of the events surrounding the double suicide of Crown Prince Rudolf of Austria-Hungary and his young mistress, Mary Vetsera, at Mayerling in January 1889.
