Nicholas Isherwood made his début as Lucifer in Stockhausen’s Donnerstag aus Licht at Covent Garden, at the age of 25, and has since collaborated closely with composers such as George Crumb, Hans Werner Henze, György Kurtág and Iannis Xenakis. His relationship with John Cage soon developed into what he in his liner notes to the disc calls ‘a love affair’. The composer Sylvano Bussotti has remarked that ‘since the passing of Cathy Berberian, Nicholas Isherwood is the singer who best understands the spirit of the music of John Cage’. On ARIA, Isherwood presents most of Cage’s music for solo voice that is not included in the composer’s Song Books, and most pieces are here recorded for the first time by a male singer. The programme covers 43 years, from A Chant with Claps from the early 1940s to Ryoanji and Sonnekus2 of the 1980s, and includes the celebrated Aria, here performed with a new multi-channel tape realization of Cage’s Fontana Mix, by the Italian composer Gianluca Verlingieri.

«Io sono una macchina fotografica con l'obiettivo aperto» dichiara l'alter ego di Chris­topher Isherwood arrivando nell'autunno del 1930 a Berlino, dove resterà fino al 1933. Un obiettivo – si può aggiungere – inesorabile, attraverso il quale partecipiamo come dal vivo ai suoi incontri nel cuore pulsante di una Repubblica di Weimar che si avvia al suo fosco tramonto: da un'eccentrica, anziana affittacamere alla sensuale Sally Bowles, aspirante attrice un po' svampita, a Otto, ombroso proletario diciassettenne, a Natalia Landauer, rampolla di una colta famiglia ebrea dell'alta società. Tra cabaret e caffè, tra case signorili e squallide pensioni, tra il puzzo delle cucine e quello delle latrine, tra file per il pane e manifestazioni di piazza, tra crisi economica e cupa euforia – da nulla dettata e in bilico sul Nulla –, Isherwood mette in scena «la prova generale di una catastrofe» e ci fa assistere alla resistibile ascesa del nazismo.

1969 documentary about author Christopher Isherwood. Born near Manchester, Isherwood mostly lived abroad. In 1969, he was living in California, was a devotee of Hinduism and a pacifist - yet of his own choice he remained an outsider, a foreigner. Derek Hart interviews him about his life and work, featuring extracts from films of his novels and stories including I Am A Camera and The Sailor from Gibraltar, and about the background to the writing of his novel A Single Man.

UK soul legend Carleen Anderson is back and brandishing a 'creative trilogy': a theatre production, a 'generational book', and her seventh album, Cage Street Memorial: The Pilgrimage. Over the course of 12 tracks Anderson weaves an educational narrative through a soundtrack of jazz, soul, gospel, opera and even classical chamber music. Here she relies on a skeleton crew of fine musicians and the simplicity it brings is refreshing. The tracks themselves have a strong social consciousness, dealing with themes of loss, greed and struggles of both the heart and mind. She has truly redefined herself here as a consummate poet.
