Much of James MacMillan's orchestral music is concerned with matters of Christian theology, and his concerto for percussion and orchestra, Veni, Veni, Emmanuel, may be counted among his most religiously inspired pieces. Outwardly, though, it is ambiguous and difficult to distinguish from purely secular music. Since all of MacMillan's motives and chords are derived from the plainchant hymn for Advent, some will listen for its permutations in the complex network of overlapping fragments.

Edward Watson takes the role of Crown Prince Rudolf in Kenneth MacMillan's compelling ballet, which lives out the final eight years of Rudolf's life and its relentless downward spiral of political intrigue, drugs and murder. The ballet culminates with a suicide pact at a hunting lodge between Rudolf and his 17-year-old mistress, Mary Vetsera. “…while Mara Galeazzi as Mary Vetsera nearly stole the show with her natural conviction, exuberance and authoritative technique, the evening belonged to Watson as Rudolf, one of the most challenging male roles ever created.” Sunday Express

In 1974, British choreographer Kenneth MacMillan in turn decided to focus on the two protagonists for an ambitious ballet that could translate the feelings and emotions of two souls abused by the accidents of life and their own personal weaknesses. In short, how a young girl on her way to a convent manages to elope with the young student with whom she has just fallen in love, only to leave him to escape destitution and finally allow herself to be persuaded by her brother Lescaut to yield to the advances of wealthy “protectors”. Accused of prostitution and deported to Louisiana, Manon is rescued by Des Grieux. Driven to murder by Manon’s jailer, he escapes with her into the marshes where the young girl ultimately succumbs. Although sincere, the love that Manon and Des Grieux share for each other cannot stand up to the vagaries of existence. As a result, neither is able to escape moral or social decline. Rather than reuse the score of Massenet’s opera, MacMillan entrusted Leighton Lucas with the task of arranging a series of extracts taken from a selection of the French composer’s operatic, symphonic and vocal scores… The end result was a huge success from its debut performance in London in 1974 onwards.

Blues | Label: Delmark Records ‎– DE-719

Chicago blues journeyman had played with both Otis Clay and Otis Rush for decades before finally recording this debut for Delmark in 1998. READY! is exceptionally well-produced by owner Robert Koester in the naturalistic Delmark style. The backing band is first-rate, especially pianist Ken Saydak and James's brother, harpist Golden "Big" Wheeler, who are both given ample solo space. Of course, the main attraction is the guitarist himself who is a great player in the classic Chicago blues tradition. While Wheeler's vocals rarely rise above the middling–neither Rush nor Clay have anything to worry about here!–his jazz-derived instrumental approach and light touch bear comparison with B.B. King's. Vocalist Gloria Thompson-Rodgers guests on the scathing "Cold Hearted Woman."
