Label: Dacapo | Tracks: 15 | Time: 58:23 min

On this release, Paul Hillier and Ars Nova Copenhagen continue their exploration of Danish vocal music. The main work here, Line Tjornhojs Vox Reportage, was composed in close co-operation with the artists, and weaves various sources together including 1981 Nobel laureate Elias Canetti, Chelsea Manning, and Rabiahal Adawiyya (8th-century Iraq) to create a reportage on the nature of humanity over the past thousand years. In Carl Nielsens Three Motets, Renaissance polyphony and the composers more personal style are molded into something fresh and powerful; the Swedish Romantic composer Stenhammarsets Danish texts, while Holmboesets British border ballads. Everything about this album crosses borders of one kind or another!

This performance of Bach's St. Matthew Passion is sung in English and played on modern instrument. If that bothers you, don't bother checking out this recording. If it doesn't bother you, and you like the idea of a heartrending, awe-inspiring, and profoundly moving performance of Bach's sacred dramatic masterpiece, by all means, try this recording. David Willcocks, the dean of English choral conductors, leads the combined forces of the Bach Choir, the Boys' Choir of St. Paul's Cathedral, and the Thames Chamber Orchestra along with six A-list British soloists in a deeply human, intensely spiritual, and amazingly dramatic performance of the work.

David Lang's "the little match girl passion," for vocal quartet doubling on percussion instruments, won the Pulitzer Prize in 2008. It's a strong, striking piece with a surprisingly potent emotional punch. Part of its effectiveness derives from the story itself, which is so achingly poignant that it can hardly fail to raise a lump in the throat. The text is primarily compiled from the story by Hans Christian Andersen and from familiar sections from Bach's "St. Matthew Passion," which sound fresh and new in English translation.

David Walsh - The Program. Lance Armstrong, la vera storia del più grande imbroglio di tutti i tempi (2015)

Quando Lance Armstrong tornò a correre dopo un cancro potenzialmente mortale e vinse il Tour de France 1999 sembrava troppo bello per essere vero. E infatti non lo era. Il giornalista David Walsh del Sunday Times fu uno dei pochissimi a interrogarsi sulle sovrumane imprese sportive del campione. Cominciò così una battaglia durata tredici anni per scoprire la verità, che si è conclusa definitivamente nell'ottobre 2012, quando il ciclista è stato spogliato delle sue sette vittorie consecutive al Tour e bandito per sempre dallo sport per doping. Il racconto di Walsh è una vera e propria indagine, serrata e avvincente come un thriller, una lotta strenua contro la convinzione inattaccabile di tutti che Armstrong fosse un eroe, un esempio eccezionale – umano e sportivo – al di sopra di ogni critica o dubbio.
Pluralist Democracy in International Relations: L.T. Hobhouse, G.D.H. Cole, and David Mitrany

Pluralist Democracy in International Relations: L.T. Hobhouse, G.D.H. Cole, and David Mitrany By Leonie Holthaus
English | PDF,EPUB | 2018 | 265 Pages | ISBN : 3319704214 | 2.35 MB

This book demonstrates the importance of democracy for understanding modern international relations and recovers the pluralist tradition of L.T. Hobhouse, G.D.H. Cole, and David Mitrany. It shows that pluralism’s typical interest in civil society, trade unionism, and transnationalism evolved as part of a wide-ranging democratic critique that representative democracies are hardly self-sustaining and are ill-equipped to represent all entitled social and political interests in international relations. Pluralist democratic peace theory advocates transnational loyalties to check nationalist sentiments and demands the functional representation of social and economic interests in international organizations. On the basis of the pluralist tradition, the book shows that theories about domestic democracy and international organizations co-evolved before scientific liberal democratic peace theory introduced new inside/outside distinctions.

David Abulafia - Federico II. Un imperatore medievale
Italian | 2017 | 511 pages | ASIN: B078GQMJ2R | EPUB | 1,6 MB

Federico II di Svevia, imperatore del Sacro Romano Impero, re di Sicilia, re di Gerusalemme, Stupor Mundi, è sempre stato considerato uno dei personaggi piú affascinanti della storia europea, celebre per la sua cultura, per la volontà di stabilire un governo illuminato e per la determinazione con cui contrastò il potere papale. Le cose però non stanno esattamente come vuole una certa tradizione storica: Abulafia tratteggia in questa biografia una figura molto diversa, meno tollerante e piú tradizionalista, meno coraggiosa e combattiva, timorosa di due papi aggressivi e sospettosi. Una ricostruzione decisamente contro corrente da leggere come un affascinante romanzo storico.
Completano il volume le carte storiche relative al periodo considerato, la bibliografia, le note e l'indice analitico.

Style: New Age | Label: David Wahler

In MOSAIC David Wahler has gone back to the style of his earlier works, ANTIQUUS and A STAR DANCED. Using rich orchestrations and evocative melody Wahler weaves intricate soundscapes in the telling of this "musical storybook". With the addition of atmospheric tenor and soprano vocals and a hauntingly beautiful boy's choir, the tracks of MOSAIC reach out to individually form a complete and varied music mosaic. Lush strings, harp, guitar, oboe, flute and other exotic sounds layer onto each other, forming a true musical statement. Destined to be on many of 2018's "best of" lists.
