Tom Service presents 40 years of great BBC archive featuring the French composer, conductor and musical icon, Pierre Boulez, who died on 5th January 2016 at the age of 90. Opinionated and challenging, Boulez transformed the way that musicians and audiences all over the world think about contemporary music. With orchestras including the BBC Symphony, he rehearses and performs Debussy, Stravinsky and Bartok, as well as a selection of his own extraordinary compositions. Boulez's relationship with the BBC began in the 1960s and blossomed during his years as chief conductor of the BBC Symphony Orchestra - leaving a vivid legacy in the BBC's TV archive.

Having recorded some works with a large orchestra in January 1983, in January 1984, Frank Zappa arranged for some of his chamber works to be performed by Pierre Boulez's Ensemble InterContemporain, a 16-piece group. "The Perfect Stranger," "Naval Aviation In Art?," and "Dupree's Paradise" were given this treatment, and the four remaining tracks are the product of Zappa's music synthesizer, the Synclavier. As usual, Zappa's "serious" works are rhythmically interesting and make for challenging listening. Originally released on LP on the classical Angel/EMI label, this album was reissued on CD on Zappa's Barking Pumpkin label in 1992, at which time he resequenced it.

Pensando o Ritual: Sexualidade, Morte, Mundo

Pensando o Ritual: Sexualidade, Morte, Mundo by Mário Perniola
Portuguese Brazilian | 2000 | ISBN: 8585445920 | 263 Pages | PDF | 2 MB

Considerado um dos mais importantes filósofos contemporâneos, assim descreve Gianni Vattimo a obra do autor: ¿Mario Perniola é uma das vozes mais originais e criativas da jovem filosofia italiana¿. Revisando a herança filosófica da tradição latina, da Contra-Reforma e do Barroco, Perniola apresenta uma nova interpretação de pensadores como Heidegger, Nietzsche e do debate sobre a morte da Metafísica. Distanciando-se do sociologismo superficial predominante no pensamento atual, Perniola propõe uma análise da condição pós-moderna baseada em noções como o simulacro e o senso de mortalidade tipicamente moderno, encontrado na espiritualidade jesuítica do final do século XVI.

A hard-swinging cooker from Art Blakey and the Jazz Messengers – recorded during the landmark year of 1957 – when Blakey's group was open to recording for a number of different labels, in a number of different settings! The set was originally done for the west coast stalwart Pacific Jazz, but it's got a sound that's much more in the hardbop mode of the New York scene – all the fire and intensity that Blakey first cooked up for Blue Note, cast out with a slight sense of openness here in the less iconic setting. Players include Jackie McLean on alto, Bill Hardman on trumpet, and Sam Dockery on piano – and the album's right up there with Vik/RCA, Savoy, and Chess material they cut at the time.
