"Italian Radio Hits and Christmas," is the new compilation dedicated to the great Italian hits of the moment and Christmas songs performed by great artists of the national music scene. The double CD is signed by the label "Solomusicaitaliana" led by Stephen Constable and collects 30 tracks, for autumn and winter all to live and sing. In the tracklist, are for example "Burn for you" Elisa, "One of these days" Nek, "Libre" Alvaro Soler feat. Emma, "Everything here happens" Negramaro, but also "It's already Christmas" by Biagio Antonacci, "Christmas without" by Marco Mengoni, "Christmas Gifts" by Antonello Venditti and "The coming year will be" by Lucio.
LSD: Love, Sensuality and Devotion gathers over a decade's worth of Enigma's definitive tracks, including the song that started it all, "Sadeness, Pt. 1." "Return to Innocence," "Beyond the Invisible," and "Cross of Changes" are all featured as well, and though the collection ranges from the rock-tinged "I'll Love You…I'll Kill You" to atmospheric, electronic fare like "Shadows in Silence," since it's all essentially Michael Crétu's vision, it flows surprisingly well. Since Enigma's sound has varied fairly drastically over the years, LSD: Love, Sensuality and Devotion is the perfect starting point for anyone curious about Crétu's music, and the only Enigma album that casual fans might need.
Composed in 1783, Thrice Betrothed, Never Wed was the young Cherubini’s fifth opera and his first opera buffa. While it echoes its era—Paisiello, Cimarosa, Haydn, and early Mozart—it displays an almost Rossinian rhythmic bite and a few harmonic touches that look forward to the dramatic masterpieces of Cherubini’s Paris years (Lodoiska, Medée, Les deux journées, Anacréon, the C-Minor Requiem). Despite decades-long exploration of Cherubini, I have never encountered the opera before; this claims to be its first recording. The plot is filled with the expected inanities: disguises, mistaken identities, and Commedia dell’arte shenanigans. Don Pastacchio is the thrice-betrothed nobleman who is left standing when the music stops. After many false starts and red herrings, the other six characters finally match up into couples.
Si tratta di una collezione di record in cui le grandi canzoni e grandi cantanti che andavano di moda 1960-1969 in Italia e poi invaso il spettro musicale internazionale, che sarebbe stato sviluppato e l'accettazione del pubblico sono raccolti.
