Bassist Giovanni Tommaso has a knack for assembling talented groups. For this studio session, he brings together an all-star quintet of Italian hard bop: a front line of trumpeter Paolo Fresu and alto saxophonist Massimo Urbani, and a stellar rhythm section of Tommaso, pianist Danilo Rea, and drummer Roberto Gatto. The whole gels, as Urbani and Fresu produce the kind of lightening solos that have since brought them international attribution. Tommaso wrote all the tunes (with the help of Rea on "Take the Money and…Spend it!"), which occasionally suffer from an absence of fire. Still, the solos from each bandmember are superb, Rea proving himself an adept powerhouse, and Tommaso holding it together with a solid backbone. In all, this is a compelling example of Italian hard bop.
Sergei Dogadin & Nikolai Tokarev - Shostakovich: Violin Sonata in G Major & 24 Preludes, Op. 34 (2018)

Dmitry Shostakovichs succinctly composed and highly distinctive 24 Preludes have proved their popularity in numerous arrangements, but when the composer heard these transcriptions by Dmitry Tsyganov he declared that I forgot they were originally written for piano, so naturally did they sound. The set was completed in 2000 by the Russian-born composer and pianist Lera Auerbach. These often whimsical and ironic Preludescontrast greatly with the chilling and profound Violin Sonata, a late work that concludes with Shostakovichs last ever use of passacaglia form.

"L'uomo invisibile" racconta la storia di un promettente fisico del XIX secolo che sviluppa un procedimento per rendere invisibile qualsiasi oggetto, e decide di provarlo su se stesso. Ma presto scopre che questo comporta una serie di problemi che non sospettava minimamente. Il romanzo crea un paradigma per i secoli a venire: la storia di Griffin è, alla fine, la tragica presa di coscienza di una solitudine e di un distacco inconciliabili con il mondo. Il futuro, sembra dirci Wells, non è affatto rassicurante.

Creatore di veri e propri miti destinati a durare nel tempo, Wells ottenne uno straordinario successo, che dura tuttora ininterrotto, perché i progressi della conoscenza e della tecnica non hanno minimamente intaccato la capacità di emozionarci, esaltarci o spaventarci davanti a queste mirabili storie. In "La macchina del tempo" appare per la prima volta un mezzo meccanico in grado di trasportare avanti e indietro nel tempo chi sappia maneggiarlo.

"La guerra dei mondi", originariamente pubblicato a Londra nel 1897, resta l'opera più famosa di Wells ed è considerato uno dei primi romanzi del genere fantascientifico. Con i suoi alieni implacabili e apparentemente invincibili, ha prodotto innumerevoli riduzioni, tra le quali è rimasta nella storia quella per la radio, interpretata da Orson Welles nel 1938: la storia, narrata in forma di cronaca, venne interpretata in modo così realistico che gli spettatori, terrorizzati, intasarono i centralini, credendo fosse davvero in atto un'invasione di extraterrestri.
