Between 1940 and 1945, 110,000 of the 140,000 Dutch Jews were deported to the death camps in Eastern Europe. 80% never returned. In Anne Frank and After the authors focus on two main questions: how exactly did this happen, and how has Dutch literature come to terms with this appalling event? In the book's final chapter they analyze the relationship between history and the literature of the Holocaust. …

Folk, Acoustic Blues, Singer-Songwriter | Label: Philo / Rounders Records

This album, originally released in 1976, may or may not be, as annotator (and former Dave Van Ronk guitar student) Elijah Wald claims, "Dave's greatest single album" (frankly, Van Ronk has made so many albums for so many fly-by-night labels that it is hard to endorse so sweeping a statement), but it is certainly a very good one. Van Ronk had made various efforts in recent years to accommodate pop and rock music on his albums, but this one was a return to his usual repertoire of folk-blues tunes and jazz and ragtime transcriptions for guitar, with one Joni Mitchell song ("That Song About the Midway") and an original, the title song, thrown in.

Studio Master, Official Digital Download | Artwork: Digital booklet

Works by Marin Marais (1656-1728) « set for the harpsichord ». For her first solo disc, Marie van Rhijn brings together several of her passions : the French vocal repertoire of the « tragédie lyrique » and the music for the viola da gamba. This CD allows to enter in the colors of the music for King Louis XIV, sometimes orchestral and at other times intimate, at the keyboard of a rare harpsichord from 1679, with a deep sonority, never recorded nor edited before.

Che la democrazia sia in crisi è ormai un luogo comune del dibattito politico in Occidente. In tutta Europa, i cittadini votano sempre meno, sono sempre più inclini a prestare fede a retoriche populiste, non credono più nella classe politica. Che fare? In molti si sono posti questo interrogativo, ma in pochi hanno risposto con una proposta altrettanto radicale e sorprendente di quella di David van Reybrouck: abolire le elezioni, non scegliere più con il meccanismo elettorale i componenti del Parlamento. E affidarsi al sorteggio per determinare chi ha la responsabilità di scrivere le leggi dello stato.
Se ci sembra inconcepibile un simile scenario, sostiene van Reybrouck, è perché abbiamo un’idea sbagliata della funzione e dei vantaggi delle elezioni come metodo di selezione della classe dirigente: per molti di noi le libere elezioni a suffragio universale sono sinonimo di democrazia, e solo i regimi totalitari le hanno abolite.

Roll With The Punches – Van Morrison’s 37th studio album - sees him simultaneously hand-picking a selection of rhythm and blues classics (by the likes of Bo Diddley, Mose Allison, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and Lightnin’ Hopkins among others) and recording a set of new self-written songs. It’s an album that features raw, intimate interpretations of some of the cornerstones of Rock’n’Roll alongside five new numbers by one of our most consistently brilliant recording artists.

George Gershwin composed his Rhapsody in Blue in 1924. In the same year, he launched his collaboration with his brother Ira, which produced countless songs. He never achieved his ambition of studying with Maurice Ravel, but was always enthralled by the symphonic poem and the concerto. His masterpieces, such as An American in Paris and the opera Porgy and Bess, greatly enriched the American musical heritage.

This CD is musical excellence captured for posterity! Fania Chapiro has nimble and musical phrasing of exquisitely difficult works. These are from the height of the Baroque era, pieces full to the brim with trills and mordants. The voice of Maelon Michel is so light and clear and bell-like, it is a joyous thing. I can't even be jealous of a voice this perfect, just delight in hearing it. The quality of her voice is also perfectly suited to this material.
