In choosing Focus as the title of this bristling, no-holds-barred album, saxophonist John Wojciechowski spells out his entire artistic philosophy, and does so with the succinct force that has marked his work throughout Chicago over the last decade. With his quartet of equally respected and dynamic musical partners - pianist Ryan Cohan, bassist Dennis Carroll, and drummer Dana Hall - they create a timeless recording full of rich melodic compositions and inspired interplay.

There are many, many good things about Andrew Parrott and the Taverner Consort and Players' Bach performances – their luminous colors, complete clarity, utter lucidity, and structural integrity – that there is an uneasy feeling in criticizing them for their occasional flaws. When Parrott's Bach is good, it is as great as any that has been recorded in the past 20 years. It's as great as Leonhardt's, Koopman's, or Herreweghe's, and far better than Gardiner's, Harnoncourt's, or Rilling's. And Parrott's Bach is so great in the great pieces – so great in the overwhelming dramatic intensity of the close of his Saint John Passion and so great in the mystery, agony, and ecstasy of the central choral triptych in his Mass in B minor – that his performances seem very, very great indeed.

John Kenneth Galbraith - Storia dell'economia
Italian | 2015 | 353 pages | ISBN: 8817061808 | EPUB | 0,7 MB

Dal ruolo della schiavitù nell'antica Grecia al "comunismo" di Platone; dall'organizzazione feudale alla rivoluzione industriale; da Karl Marx alla Grande Depressione degli anni Trenta, fino allo sviluppo del mercato globalizzato nel secondo Novecento: in questo testo John K. Galbraith dimostra con sorprendente chiarezza che non si può comprendere il funzionamento dell'economia contemporanea senza conoscerne la storia, perché le teorie e le scelte economiche sono sempre un prodotto dei tempi e dei luoghi in cui nascono e si sviluppano. Accompagnando il lettore attraverso curiosi aneddoti e la lucida analisi di grandi temi - dalla distribuzione del reddito alla disoccupazione -, l'autore porta alla luce l'intreccio ineliminabile che lega questioni economiche, politiche e sociali. E spiega che l'economia non può essere socialmente neutra: ha sempre il potere di determinare, nel bene e nel male, la vita di una nazione e dei suoi cittadini.

Tomas Luis de Victoria and Josquin Desprez were not contemporaries, they lived and worked in different countries, and perhaps shared little in terms of abstract compositional style. Yet throughout Europe, generations of musicians recognized them as kindred spirits, and tablature versions of their masses and motets circulated amongst lutenists. For John Potter, this is “the secret life of the music – in historical terms its real life.” In this characteristically creative project Potter - joined by Trio Mediaeval singer Anna Maria Friman and three outstanding vihuela players - explores “what happens to music after it is composed.”
