Questa serie di libri, denominata "I signori di Roma" è una saga ambientata nell'Antica Roma, che racconta gli ultimi decenni della Repubblica romana, dall'avvento di Gaio Mario (fine II secolo a.C) a quello di Augusto (I sec. dopo Cristo). Lo scopo dichiarato dell'autrice è di riscoprire attraverso una storia avvincente un mondo antico ed affascinante, forse ben lontano dalle immagini dei grandi film di Hollywood, ma molto più fedele alla realtà storica di tani romanzi sul genere. …

More wealthy and more powerful than any other ancient civilization, the Roman Empire enjoyed a long period of prosperity known as the Pax Romana. But perhaps the greatest treasure of this period is not its riches, but it's myth. The abstract image of this extraordinary empire has inspired dreamers and dictators throughout the ages, luring some to return to Rome to fuel their own dreams of power. In the middle of the 14th century, Cola di Rienzo, Roman Inn keeper, rekindled the days of his city's former glory. Cola di Rienzo fought the power of the Catholic church and a clique of local aristocrats to proclaim a new Roman Republic.

The concert works of film composer Nino Rota, best known for his scores for the Godfather trilogy and for a long series of films by Federico Fellini, have increasingly often been finding space in classical recording catalogs. Here's a nicely recorded rendering of Rota's two numbered symphonies, virtually unknown until perhaps the turn of the century, issued on a major British label, Chandos. Both are attractive pieces that could be profitably programmed by any symphony orchestra. They were composed in the 1930s, when Rota was as much American as Italian; he won a scholarship to the Curtis Institute in Philadelphia and studied there for several years. Both reflect the French neo-classic trends that flourished in the U.S. between the wars, and, although Rota sounds nothing like Copland, you do experience in these works an evocation of what annotator Michele Rene Mannucci aptly calls "landscape in sound." Each work is in the conventional four movements, with a slow movement placed second in the Symphony No. 1 in G major and third in the Symphony No. 2 in F major.

"This Grammy winner, one of the most successful versions of Puccini's final opera, offers Nilsson's first recording of the title character, and Bjoerling's last operatic portrayal on disc, including a heroic, for-the-ages "Nessun dorma". The extraordinary orchestration, befitting a story set in ancient China, benefits from the new DSD remastering."

If the Jews can give him 100 hundred pounds in gold, he will spare their lives and not deport them to the death camps.

As she demonstrated in both Il barbiere di Siviglia and Il turco in Italia, Callas, the great tragedienne, could also turn her skills to comedy. As it happened, the 1956 La Scala production of Rossini's most popular opera did not prove a great success with audiences, but its stars - Callas, Tito Gobbi and Luigi Alva - reassembled in London the following year for this recording. Callas sang the role of Rosina at its original mezzo-soprano pitch and her version of 'Una voce poco fa' - punctuated by an unforgettable 'ma' ('but') in the cabaletta - is a miracle of both elegance and wit.

Mastered At Half-Speed At The CBS Recording Studios By Robert Ludwig
Label: Columbia/HC 44461 | Release: 1977 | This Issue: 1981 | Genre: Jazz-Rock

Essential: a masterpiece of progressive rock music
Al DiMeola is what so many shred metal guitarists wish they could be. He can play a ridiculous number of notes per second yet he plays with a musicality seldom rivalled by the genre he helped to inspire. Elegant Gypsy shows Al in his prime, with an intractable lineup featuring flamenco god Paco De Lucia and Mahavishnu organ grinder Jan Hammer. The result is a blazing set of fusion that is over far too soon.
