This disc strikes me as an ideal introduction to the music of Turkey’s greatest composer. Ahmed Adnan Saygun’s style might be described as “Szymanowski with a primal rhythmic feel.” If you love the composer’s First Violin Concerto then you will find here a very similar exoticism, nocturnal atmosphere, and love of voluptuous textures. The harmonic style is intensely chromatic, but also highly melodic. Like Bartók in his last period, Saygun’s handling of tonality mellowed toward the end of his life, which makes the Cello Concerto more consonant than the Viola Concerto, but both works are absolutely gorgeous and masterpieces of their kind. It’s positively criminal that no one plays these pieces regularly in concert. The performances here are excellent. Tim Hugh is a well-known cellist, and he pours on the tone with all of the rhapsodic abandon that Saygun requires. Mirjam Tschopp also is a superb violist, with a big, beefy tone that never gets swamped by the intricate orchestration. It’s also very rewarding to hear a Turkish orchestra in this music–and to find that it plays beautifully under Howard Griffiths.

Philip Jones Griffiths first visited Vietnam in 1966. It was an experience that would profoundly shape his career. Griffiths captured incredible images of the victims of war from innocent civilians to young soldiers caught up in the conflict. His 1971 photo journal, VIETNAM INC. transformed forever our understanding of this terrible conflict. Featuring interviews with some of those closest to him; family and friends and colleagues including John Pilger, Don McCullin and Professor Noam Chomsky, this beautifully shot documentary gives fascinating insight into the life and legacy of a man who was a true humanitarian and whose pictures are classics of photojournalism, as powerful today as the day they were taken.

After the success of For ever Fortune, early music from Scotland, François Lazarevitch continues his exploration of the Celtic repertories with a new programme devoted to early Irish music. This repertory of old airs from the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries consists of dances, songs in Gaelic and varied instrumental pieces: they tell tales of wars, of love, of strong drink and tobacco, of children and bards.

Isola Wednesday, arcipelago artico canadese. Dai ghiacci emerge il relitto del Misha 124, un bombardiere sovietico scomparso nel 1953. La notizia del ritrovamento viene riportata dai media di tutto il mondo, e il Cremlino fornisce la sua versione ufficiale: un'esercitazione militare finita male. Ma le due tonnellate di antrace che l'aereo stava trasportando in territorio americano fanno sospettare che il Misha fosse in realtà una piattaforma strategica per l'uso di armi biologiche. E che fin dai tempi della guerra fredda esista una verità scomoda tenuta nascosta dai servizi segreti russi e americani, che ora rischia di venire a galla con conseguenze disastrose…

Basta una telefonata a cambiare la vita di Andrea Bancroft, giovane e brillante analista finanziaria: la Fondazione Bancroft (l'organizzazione filantropica fondata da suo nonno Paul, con il quale da anni non ha più rapporti) la contatta per offrirle dodici milioni di dollari e una poltrona nel consiglio di amministrazione. Intanto Todd Belknap, leggendario agente della squadra speciale di Consular Operations, rientra a Washington dopo una missione andata storta: doveva arrestare un trafficante d'armi e ha finito per essere accusato del suo omicidio…

I primi racconti, perlopiù provenienti dalle pagine di Weird Tales, dello scrittore destinato, di lì a pochi anni, a diventare uno dei maestri dell’horror, col suo indimenticabile Psycho, portato sullo schermo da Alfred Hitchcock.

Sono in tutto 21 racconti scritti tra il 1934 e il 1945: Il festino nell’abbazia - Il divoratore giunto dalle stelle - Il nano - Il Dio senza volto - Colui che Apre la Via - Il demone oscuro - La madre dei serpenti - Il segreto di Sebek - Gli occhi della mummia - Schiavo delle fiamme - Ritorno al Sabba - I canarini del mandarino - Scarabei - Il museo delle cere - Lo strano volo di Richard Clayton - Il mantello - Il sigillo del destino - L’onorario del violinista - La casa dell’ascia - Sinceramente vostro, Jack lo Squartatore - Solo andata.
