Juno-nominated artist Barbra Lica is a fast-rising star in the Canadian music scene and has been receiving accolades for a unique vocal ability that stresses subtlety and grace. Based in Toronto, Canada, Barbra’s live show captivates audiences all over North America with her genuine warmth and confident stage presence. A deep passion for the music of classic vocalists like Doris Day and Ella Fitzgerald led Barbra to pursue a Bachelor of Music in Jazz Performance at the University of Toronto.

Alessandro Stradella’s colourful life and eventual murder have since furnished writers with material for novels and stageworks. But he was very highly regarded as a composer during his short life, and made important contributions to several musical forms with operas, instrumental sinfonie and cantatas. This programme features five seldom performed chamber cantatas and two of his sinfonie or sonatas. Soprano Christine Brandes has a light, pleasing voice, and an athletic technique which enables her to circumnavigate most of Stradella’s often demanding vocal writing. But she is stretched to her limits, perhaps even a shade beyond, in the virtuoso, fiendishly difficult ‘Ferma il corso e torna al lido’.

"L'osservatore oscuro" è l'alter ego negativo che ci portiamo dentro, quello che ci dice che non ce la faremo, quello che alimenta le nostre paranoie, gli incubi peggiori… Per Aurora Scalviati, giovane profiler della polizia di Sparvara, i colleghi Bruno Colasanti, Tom Carelli e Silvia Sassi sono diventati la famiglia che non ha mai avuto. Ma tutto è destinato a cambiare con il ritrovamento, alla Certosa di Bologna, del cadavere di un uomo senza nome né documenti di riconoscimento. Gli unici indizi sono la bocca cucita, il corpo martoriato da un'antica, feroce tortura e un tatuaggio sul petto con il nome di Aurora, eseguito postmortem. Sospettata di essere coinvolta nell'omicidio e interrogata senza sosta, Aurora deve scontrarsi non solo con la diffidenza dei superiori, ma anche con quella dei suoi più stretti collaboratori. Persino il suo rapporto con Bruno viene messo a dura prova..

To be a woman singing your own blues and soul songs in 1960s Texas was a rare thing. To do so while brandishing a left-handed Stratocaster and bashing out hard-edged licks was even rarer. Yet that’s just what Barbara Lynn did, inspired by Guitar Slim, Jimmy Reed, Elvis Presley and Brenda Lee. And it was a hit: her 1962 debut single, “You’ll Lose A Good Thing,” recorded with session musicians including Dr. John, gave her an R&B chart Number One and a Billboard chart Top 10 hit.

Understandably, Poulenc's Gloria and Stabat Mater have almost invariably been coupled together on LPs and CDs. Similarly scored for solo soprano, chorus, and orchestra, the two works are arguably the twin peaks of Poulenc's sacred music, that is, they are irresistibly melodic, energetically rhythmic, directly emotional, conservatively harmonic, and fervently religious. That said, however, the difference in tone between the two works is as striking as their similarities. Where the Gloria is light, bright, and at times even funny, the Stabat Mater, as befits its subject matter, is dark, heavy, and always deeply sorrowful. In this pair of performances with Georges Prêtre leading the Orchestre National de France and the French Radio Choir from the '80s, both works are given the deluxe French treatment. Prêtre is as skilled at balancing his forces as he is at keeping the music moving, and, as importantly, he is as capable of expressing the Gloria's joyous wit as he is of articulating the Stabat Mater's profound suffering. But the real star of these performances is American soprano Barbara Hendricks whose clear, warm voice and excellent diction breath vibrant life into all Poulenc's glorious melodies.

Inghilterra, 1949. La Seconda Guerra Mondiale ha lasciato enormi ferite nel Paese, ma il recente matrimonio della principessa, futura regina, Elisabetta con il principe Filippo sembra aver risollevato il morale della popolazione e a Londra si respira una nuova energia. Non si può dire certo lo stesso a Cavendon Hall. La grande tenuta nello Yorkshire ha pagato un prezzo terribile durante la guerra e ora è di fronte al fallimento. Per la prima volta da secoli, le due famiglie che la abitano, gli aristocratici Ingham e gli Swann, loro fedeli servitori, sono in disaccordo sulla strada da percorrere per salvarla. Ma, questa volta, forse, sono proprio le due famiglie a essere in pericolo, e la minaccia potrebbe arrivare dalla tenuta stessa: i segreti, da tempo custoditi tra le sue mura, scalpitano per venire a galla e potrebbero distruggere tutti loro.
