Any recording of an opera by Benedetto Marcello will, for many, bring to mind his literary satire, IL TEATRO ALLA MODA, subtitled "a safe and easy method of properly composing and producing Italian operas according to modern practice." Within its pages, no one involved in the creation of opera-librettist, composer, singers, impresario-is spared. In one passage, the composer is admonished to "oblige the impresario to provide a great number of violins, oboes, horns, etc., preferring to let him economize on double basses, for these should not be used except in the preliminary tuning."

Preisner's scoring for films have been very successful with "The Double Life Of Veronika", and three albums of scores for "Three Colours Blue, White and Red", some reaching Platinum CD status by Poland's musical standards… another outstanding score was "The Last September", based on a novel by Elizabeth Bowen and brought to the screen by director Hector Babenco, beautiful and compelling music, and the unforgettable Agnieszka Holland's "Secret Garden". Let us look at the soundtrack at hand–-"ABERDEEN", from writer/director Hans Petter Moland finds our characters on the road to Aberdeen in Scotland… storyline is between father and daughter regarding their reconciliation as the prepare to visit her dying mother… the big surprise is her father may not really be her father. Preisner captures the tone and mood of Moland's screenplay, with piano solo (Leszek Mozdzer) of a lingering theme, interwoven at times with the voice of Stina Nordenstam… create feelings of dreamlike drifting…mesmerizing counter-melodies featuring John Parricelli (guitar)… completely enters your body and soul.

Hausmusik’s performance of the Mendelssohn Octet comes with the advantage of a sensibly steady tempo for the famous scherzo, allowing for maximum transparency and lightness; and a dazzling finale in which for once the cello’s first scurrying fugal entry sounds crystal clear. The First String Quintet, and the Op. 13 Quartet – Mendelssohn’s homage to the late quartets of the recently deceased Beethoven – are also miraculous products of the composer’s teenage years. The Quintet is quite beautifully done here, but the Quartet, like the late Quintet, Op. 87, is rather lacking in tension and urgency. Woldemar Bargiel was Schumann’s brother-in-law. For all its obvious weaknesses, his Octet contains some attractive ideas, and Divertimenti’s performance makes a strong case for it. Divertimenti is impressive in the Mendelssohn, too – though its finale is not quite as exhilarating as Hausmusik’s; and in the last resort neither group can quite match the élan of the ASMF Chamber Ensemble.

Three attractive and lively concertos by two exact 18th-century contemporaries (they were both born in 1739) the Viennese Dittersdorf and the Bohemian Vanhal who on at least one occasion played string quartets with Mozart and Haydn. (Haydn and Dittersdorf played violins; Mozart played viola; Vanhal the cello.) This seems to be the only recorded pairing of the two Dittersdorf concertos.

This generous coupling of Brahms’s two concertos for stringed instruments has become relatively common in the age of CD thanks to compilations like the Philips disc of Szeryng and Starker‚ analogue recordings dating from the early 1970s. Modern digital recordings expressly designed for issue in coupling are much rarer‚ the Teldec issue of Kremer and Clemens Hagen being the most notable one.

Live is a double live album released by British-American rock band Fleetwood Mac in 1980. It was the first live album from the then-current line-up of the band, and the next would be The Dance from 1997. The album was certified gold in November 1981. Live consists of recordings taken primarily from the 1979-1980 Tusk Tour, together with a few from the earlier Rumours Tour of 1977. Two songs were recorded at a Paris soundcheck and three at a performance at Santa Monica Civic Auditorium "for an audience of friends and road crew." Of particular note are three new songs - Christine McVie's "One More Night", Stevie Nicks' "Fireflies", and a well-harmonized backstage rendition of The Beach Boys' "The Farmer's Daughter".

For those new to Mendelssohn's music, this might look like a recording of some major works of the composer; be aware that they're virtually unknown music of Mendelssohn's early teens, first published in complete form only in 1999. For those already a fan of Mendelssohn, however, they're very intriguing works that show the developing talents of the young composer in a different light than do the set of twelve-string symphonies that are his most frequently performed works of the period.

Schifrin’s Concierto Caribeno for flute, was commissioned by and is dedicated to the Mexican flautist Marisa Canales. Its first movement opens with a busy orchestral phrase, which immediately gives us a taste of the tropical percussion of the Caribbean. The solo flute sings the syncopated first theme that will be developed in a classical sonata form without losing the spontaneity and freshness of this music. Orchestral dialogues unfold a virtuoso elaboration on the theme where the rhythmic flexibility and the rich ornamentation give the development an improvised feeling.

The construction of a rebellious, young classical player can proceed along the lines of image-making, or of unorthodox music-making. With the violinist Nemanja Radulovic you get both. Radulovic has been noted for long hair, leather pants, and ABBA covers, and he's already achieved a good deal of crossover success in Britain. Now, signed to Deutsche Grammophon, he essays more conventional repertory in the form of some Bach standards, but the effect is hardly less outrageous.
