The Royal Stockholm Philharmonic Orchestra and IMG Artists present an exclusive deluxe 8CD box set edition celebrating the Royal Stockholm Philharmonic and its century-long national and international tradition. The box offers a unique collection of recordings dating from 1934-1978 with more than 10 hours of music. Here the orchestra plays under legendary names like Arturo Toscanini, Fritz Busch, Leopold Stokowski, Bruno Walter, Wilhelm Furtwängler, Pierre Monteux and Rafael Kubelik, together with their Swedish counterparts Tor Mann, Sixten Ehrling and Herbert Blomstedt.
Telemann's connection with Darmstadt is typical of a composer who cast his net widely on the path to becoming Germany's most acclaimed composer. Appointed to his Frankfurt post in 1712 Telemann was shrewd enough to realize that to 'get on' he needed to write music for the best. In instrumental terms, he was lucky enough to be based less than 20 miles from the Darmstadt court of Ernst Ludwig VII, a music-loving nobleman who had at his disposal a fine orchestra of musicians, many recruited from Paris, trained by the court Kapellmeister, Johann Christoph Graupner (known largely through his turning down the cantorate at St Thomas's Leipzig before Bach was reluctantly found to be an acceptable choice).
As part of their ongoing reissue of the Crosby, Stills & Nash catalog, Rhino put out Demos, a collection of early home recordings of staples from the CSN catalog, demos recorded both alone and together between the years of 1968 and 1971. Unlike some similar collections, not much here is especially revelatory; apart from "Love the One You're With," here almost droning at the beginning, there are no great differences in lyrics or approach, with such solo recordings as "Almost Cut My Hair" pointing clearly to their latter full-blown incarnations.
La naissance des sciences cognitives et la création de la mécanique quantique ont conduit philosophes et physiciens à s’interroger sans relâche sur la définition de l’esprit. Doit-on construire l’ensemble des sciences sur la physique, ou bien la physique est-elle un terrain mouvant qui appelle à son secours une philosophie de l’esprit pour répondre à ses questions ? Constatant que le débat entre physicalistes et spiritualistes n’est pas terminé, Michel Bitbol dégage les enjeux d’une discussion fondamentale dont l’horizon est aussi de déterminer les fondements d’une définition de la science et de la connaissance. – Idées clés, par Business Digest
In the '40s, Getz played with Goodman, Herman and Kenton. In the '60s, he helped spark the bossa-nova explosion. In between, he became one of the top sax stars in jazz, and this 154-track set captures him in that '50s prime. You'll hear scads of studio sessions plus live stuff including gems taped at the Shrine Auditorium in '57; includes And the Angels Swing; Stardust; What's New; My Old Flame; The Lady in Red; Imagination; Prelude to a Kiss, and more!
