After Terry Riley's revolutionary In C, it certainly never seemed that the compositionally brash cofounder of the minimalist movement would take on a lyrical bent. But that's what he's done on this collection of pieces for violin, guitar, and percussion. Violinist Tracy Silverman and guitarist David Tanenbaum play warmly and sublimely on Cantos Desiertos, finding pristine melodies and high, arching curves around which to spread their finesse. Tanenbaum gets unbelievably rich tones from his guitar, and his range is the one consistent ingredient throughout these pieces. He duets with Riley's son Gyan, himself an accomplished guitarist, on "Zamorra" and with percussionist William Winant on Dias de los Muertos. Winant's marimba and gongs are especially appropriate for Tanenbaum's resonant string work, fluctuating from an absolute crispness to a milky froth. Where Riley's chamber works, such as Salome Dances for Peace, are intensely rhythmic, these works veer much more stealthily toward a kind of glorious flowering, even if the blooms are in dusky colors and muted, curvy patterns.

David Virelles - Gnosis (2017) {ECM 2526}
WEB | FLAC tracks | Digital Booklet | 174MB + 5% Recovery
Genre: Avant-Garde Jazz, Afro-Cuban Jazz

In "Gnosis", the Santiago de Cuba-raised and New York-based pianist-composer David Virelles looks towards one melting pot from the vantage point of another. At one level an autobiographical album, a sequence of images conveyed through sound, Gnosis is a far- reaching work with deep roots. Transculturation and traditions are among the subjects under consideration, and the complex tapestry of Cuba’s music: the sacred, the secular, and the ritualistic. It’s an exciting, vivid and multi-faceted project of rapidly changing temperament, in which pulsating ensemble music and pristine, meditative solo piano both have their places. And it is enveloped in a feeling of mystery and magic that has made each of Virelles’s albums special.

Henry David Thoreau - Disobbedienza civile

Henry David Thoreau - Disobbedienza civile
Italian | 2018 | 89 pages | ISBN: 880790263X | EPUB | 0,3 MB

La critica di Thoreau era indirizzata verso le politiche del governo americano: alle sue pratiche di mantenimento dello schiavismo e alla politica espansionista nei territori messicani. Per queste ragioni l'autore si rifiutò di pagare le tasse, finendo incarcerato seppur per brevissimo tempo. Fu questo episodio a innescare la sua riflessione sulla disobbedienza civile e a condurlo all'affermazione della necessità della resistenza in presenza di leggi ingiuste. In questo volume, "La disobbedienza civile" si accompagna a un altro celebre saggio: "In difesa del capitano John Brown". Nei due interventi l'esigenza della critica delle istituzioni è condotta con un vigore decisivo. Con un eloquio di rara forza espressiva e grande lucidità, la coscienza dell'individuo viene innalzata al di sopra di ogni istituzione. Si tratta di due testi celebri del pensiero libertario, che toccano un tema sempre di grande attualità, e non solo negli Stati Uniti…
Masters of the Grotesque: The Cinema of Tim Burton, Terry Gilliam, the Coen Brothers and David Lynch

Masters of the Grotesque: The Cinema of Tim Burton, Terry Gilliam, the Coen Brothers and David Lynch by Schuy R. Weishaar
English | March 21st, 2018 | ASIN: B00APTC0FE, ISBN: 0786471867 | 221 Pages | EPUB | 3.16 MB

The concepts and theories surrounding the aesthetic category of the grotesque are explored in this book by pursuing their employment in the films of American auteurs Tim Burton, Terry Gilliam, the Coen Brothers and David Lynch. The author argues that interpreting these directors’ films through the lens of the grotesque allows us1to situate both the auteurs and the films within a long history of the grotesque in art and aesthetics.

Des vies à écrire - David Lodge  eBooks & eLearning

Des vies à écrire - David Lodge

Des vies à écrire - David Lodge
French | 2014 | 250 Pages | ISBN: 2743629312 | EPUB | 236.21 KB

Dans L'Auteur ! L'Auteur ! ou Un homme de tempérament, David Lodge explorait la personnalité et les failles d'écrivains majeurs. Il poursuit cette quête avec Des vies à écrire, série de portraits qui sont autant de voyages dans l'intimité de Graham Greene, Muriel Spark ou H. G. Wells. L'écrivain est-il un homme ou une femme comme les autres face aux tragédies ordinaires que sont la vieillesse, la solitude ou l'oubli ?
Au-delà, c'est le biographe lui-même, cet enquêteur passionné remontant le cours d'une vie, qui intéresse David Lodge. Il pose en filigrane la question au coeur de tout travail d'écriture : peut-on pleinement saisir la vérité d'un destin ?

David I. Kertzer - Il patto col diavolo: Mussolini e Papa Pio XI le relazioni segrete fra il Vaticano e l'Italia fascista (2014)
Italian | Rizzoli | 2014 | PDF | Pages 555 | ASIN: B00IUGH266 | 5.8 MB

I rapporti tra il Vaticano e il fascismo sono da sempre oggetto di controversia. Da una parte quanti sostengono che la Chiesa sia stata una ferma oppositrice del Duce, dall’altra quanti ritengono che invece lo abbia appoggiato in materia determinante. Dopo l’apertura, nel 2006, degli Archivi vaticani, nuovi documenti permettono di approfondire il dipanarsi delle relazioni tra Pio XI e Benito Mussolini, due uomini arrivati insieme al potere, nel 1922, e i cui destini resteranno legati a doppio filo. Spie, traditori, carte segrete e scandali taciuti rivelano una storia di opportunismi, di interessi talvolta convergenti – a partire dalla comune e ferrea lotta contro il comunismo – ma anche di riluttanze, insofferenze e duelli all’arma bianca.

As one-third of the composer-collective Bang on a Can, David Lang is something of a genial father figure of the indie-classical scene. Talk to any of the world's main players and you're likely to hear them tell you about their life-changing stint in Bang on a Can's summer festival, which has acted as a sort of feeder school and incubator for the group's try-anything mentality. Lang's music has undergone many stylistic shifts over the years: In the 80s, he wrote bristlier stuff, but in the last decade or so, he's shifted quietly into a more pensive register. The Little Match Girl Passion, his 2008 work that won him a Pulitzer, was written for only four voices and some hand bells. This Was Written By Hand, his most recent recording, is a collection of short solo piano works played by the British pianist Andrew Zolinsky. The album holds the same, sustained melancholy mood: thoughtful, searching, elegiac, minimalist. Lang's way with repetitive phrasing doesn't feel like that of minimalists like Glass or Reich's, though.
