Like 1994's Forest, George Winston's 1999 album Plains is inspired by the subtle beauty of America's landscapes. Pieces like "Dubuque" and "Muliwai" evoke regions as diverse as Montana's fields and Hawaiian shores, but Winston's distinctive piano stylings unite the songs into a cohesive vision. Though his interpretation of Sammy Cahn's "Teach Me Tonight" is unremarkable, his cover of Sarah McLachlan's "Angel" and originals like "Cloudburst," "The Swan," "Rainsong," and the title track showcase Winston's unique ability to transform nature into expressive piano pieces.

December is the fourth solo piano album from George Winston. It was recorded during the fall of 1982 and was released at the end of the year. It is a Christmas album, and more generally a tribute to the winter season. The album is a follow up to Autumn. December is Winston's highest-selling album, having been certified triple Platinum by the RIAA, signifying 3 million copies in shipment. The success of the album, along with several of Winston's other albums from the early 1980s, enabled the record label, Windham Hill, to get international distribution and a much higher profile. A 20th Anniversary Edition of the album, with two bonus tracks, was released in 2001.

George Winston's Autumn has served as an emotional backdrop to the change of season. A beautiful recording for solo piano, Autumn finds Winston developing simple melodic motifs with studied left-hand underpinning, on hypnotic pieces like 'Woods,' which moves from a brisk rhythmic figure to rubato minor-key runs. Leaving pauses and breaths in all the right places, Winston suggests the play of color and light, the comfortable melancholy, and the encroaching slow-down that characterizes the fall season. Full of memorable themes and moods, Autumn is a timeless album, and serves as a good introduction for someone who has not heard George Winston. In the context of a career in which he has sold over fifteen million albums, Autumn is the first album that George himself recommends (and often gives to) new listeners.

This collection of music for guitar, brought together by Jose Luis Bieito as the musical element of his music+image binomis, Reflections, possesses a delightful balance of sounds. These are flowing, pulsing, mostly gentle sounds that tend to soothe and calm the listener's mind. Sounds that - through a variety of compositional techniques - tend to be sustained in time; the effects of which can sometimes capture a listener’s attention, holding it inside an extended musical moment, like a spell. When heard while viewing the accompanying (provocative, sometimes disturbing) images, the sounds can serve an additional function: grounding the listener's reaction, enabling the passage of emotion; like electricity discharging through a lightening rod.

One of the most unusual albums on the legendary Strata East label – an unusual mix of jazz and soul vocal material, put together by singer Muriel Winston with arrangements from the great Bill Lee! There's a relaxed, easygoing feel to the record – one that's upfront and personal on the tunes that feature Muriel in the lead on ballads, but gets a bit more righteous on some of the spoken passages, then feels really collaborative on some of the numbers that feature a chorus of younger singers (including Spike Lee's sister, Joy).

Tutto quanto di meraviglioso avviene nell'universo è il risultato delle vibrazioni di singole unità, ultramicroscopiche stringhe nascoste nella profondità della materia. I "modi di vibrazione", le "note" intonate da queste stringhe, determinano la costituzione intima della materia, come corde di violino che eseguono una sinfonia cosmica ordinata e armoniosa. In questo libro, Brian Greene ci narra la storia di una straordinaria avventura, parlandone da protagonista e trasmettendoci tutto l'entusiasmo della scoperta scientifica. La rivoluzionaria visione dell'universo che emerge dal suo racconto prevede dimensioni nascoste e arrotolate nelle pieghe dello spazio, buchi neri che si trasformano in particelle elementari, discontinuità nella tessitura dello spaziotempo e universi che generano altri universi..

Non sempre l'apparente tranquillità di Duluth, la cittadina del Minnesota immersa nella nebbia in cui il detective Jonathan Stride ha vissuto tutta la sua vita, corrisponde alla realtà. Specie nel giorno più atteso, quello della maratona cittadina, che riserva sempre qualche sorpresa. Ci sono più nubi del previsto, quella mattina piovosa di giugno in cui la folla si raduna per guardare i maratoneti esausti che tagliano il traguardo. Anche Stride è tra loro, in attesa del passaggio di sua moglie, Serena, tra i corridori. Ma lui è un poliziotto, e sa bene che un'occasione come questa non è fatta per rilassarsi. E non solo perché tutti gli abitanti della cittadina sulle rive del Lago Superiore sono in strada. C'è anche Dawn Basch a correre la maratona di Duluth: una donna che deve la sua enorme popolarità alle idee razziste e islamofobe di cui da tempo si è fatta portavoce, sfruttando i media per la sua propaganda demagogica..
