L'undicenne Gilly è ben nota agli assistenti sociali e, al causa del suo carattere del tutto ingestibile e della sua mai abbandonata speranza di ritrovare la madre naturale Courtney, ha cambiato diverse volte famiglie affidatarie. Mandata a vivere con i Trotters, una famiglia ancora più strana di quanto leistessa non sia, Gilly non ha alcuna intenzione di rimanere nella loro casa ma l'allegra e affettuosa Maime Trotter non si arrende di fronte alle sue resistenze e cerca di conquistarla. Il piano di fuga che Gilly elabora però non va a buon fine e lentamente la bambina comincia a guardare la nuova famiglia con occhi diversi.

Contact Note is the second album from electronic composer, producer, remixer Jon Hopkins. An album that slowly evolves into a deep compelling musical experience with Hopkins calling on his skills as a classically trained musician to give his most abstract work delicate impressionist touches. Piano contrasts with deep driving basslines, drifting atmospheres and intense rhythms: a glorious sonic adventure.

Mainstream-swing-to-bop's the thing on the two 1960 Swingville gems paired here, both of which feature one of the foremost Basieites on tenor saxophone, George "Buddy" Tate. Tate (1913-2001), whose big-toned blues mastery is his longtime calling card, is an integral part of a lively quintet date led by Claude Hopkins (1903-1984), the first of three fine albums the pianist-composer-bandleader would pilot for Swingville.

The emotional content, lyricism and direct appeal of Gavin Bryars’s music are unique, reflecting a contemporary composer’s absorption and transformation of several centuries of musical craftsmanship in order to reflect his, and our, own epoch. Originally written for harpsichord, After Handel’s Vesper is a strong illustration of Bryars’s post-minimal interests in early music repertoire. Ramble on Cortona, derived from 13th-century music, makes expressive use of the piano’s resonant qualities, while in the highly-coloured, almost impressionistic The Solway Canal, landscapes pass by as if in a dream.

The old model for creating a hit classical recording – big-name soloist plus big-name conductor in major repertory work – is not so common anymore, but this live Brahms recording from the Staatskapelle Berlin under Venezuela's Gustavo Dudamel, with Argentine-Israeli-Palestinian-Spanish pianist Daniel Barenboim as soloist, shows that there's life in the concept yet. One could point to the virtues of pianist and conductor separately: it's a rare septuagenarian who can combine power and clear articulation of detail the way Barenboim does, and Dudamel builds a vast sweep in, especially, the Piano Concerto No. 1 in D minor, Op. 15. But it's the way that the two work together that really makes news. Chalk it up to shared South American heritage or to whatever the listener wants, but the way the orchestra and piano define separate spheres and work them together is extraordinary. Again, it is in the Piano Concerto No. 1 and its Beethovenian drama that their mutual understanding is most evident, but there is a sense of great variety powerfully unified throughout.

This album is unique in Mingus' enormous catalog. As the title indicates, the famous bassist takes to the ivories solo to give life to his dazzling improvisational art. At first it seems odd to hear Mingus without one of his trademark interactive and exploratory ensembles. But the sensibility that he brings to this collection of piano pieces bears all the signs of the composer's genius…
