A trim, at times, almost balletic Falstaff. If that seems a ludicrous contradiction, I should explain that it refers to Dutoit's spirited interpretation of the work, not the central character, though Falstaff himself has shed a few pounds in the process but is no less loveable. Indeed, Dutoit's swift tempo for the second section (at the Boar's Head) has the theme for Falstaff's 'cheerful look and pleasing eye' sounding less like Tovey's understandable misunderstanding of it as ''blown up like a bladder with sighing and grief''. The trimming down process is abetted by the Montreal sound, with lean, agile strings and incisive brass (the horns are magnificent). Some may feel a lack of warmth in the characterization. I certainly felt that the first presentation of Prince Harry's theme (0'40'') could have done with a richer string sonority. Doubtless, too, there will be collectors who, at moments, miss the generous humanity of Barbirolli, or the Straussian brilliance of Solti. And although Mackerras is wonderful in the dream interludes and Falstaff's death, the start of his fourth section, with Falstaff's rush to London only to be rejected by the new King, is short on teeming excitement and anticipation.

I Romanov hanno governato per oltre tre secoli un sesto della superficie terrestre e sono stati la dinastia di maggior successo dell'era moderna. Come ha potuto una sola famiglia trasformare un piccolo e oscuro principato nel più grande impero del mondo? Quale prezzo di sofferenze e di sangue hanno dovuto pagare i loro sudditi? E perché e come il loro dominio ha di colpo iniziato a franare all'inizio del XX secolo? Simon Sebag Montefiore è riuscito a rispondere a queste domande racchiudendo in un'unica narrazione la vertiginosa avventura di una ventina di zar e zarine, valutati e descritti non solo negli scenari della storia maggiore - incoronazioni, complotti, avvicendamenti dinastici -, ma, con il supporto di documenti e carteggi, anche in quelli meno noti della vita privata e familiare.

Il giovane Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio è cresciuto come un reietto. Cacciato dalla famiglia, ancora adolescente è stato costretto a fuggire da Milano perché accusato di omicidio. Quando arriva a Roma, solo e senza un soldo, scopre presto che l'accecante bellezza della città nasconde anche un aspetto pericoloso e sinistro: sopravvivere nel quartiere degli artisti significa destreggiarsi tra ricchi committenti e spietati criminali. Sotto la protezione del potente cardinale del Monte, Caravaggio inizia la sua turbolenta ascesa, intrecciando una relazione con la musa Fillide, "la più famosa puttana di Roma"…

Reason, we are told, is what makes us human, the source of our knowledge and wisdom. If reason is so useful, why didn't it also evolve in other animals? If reason is that reliable, why do we produce so much thoroughly reasoned nonsense?

Big Boy Pete has toured with the Beatles and Rolling Stones and released one of the first English psychedelic songs 'Cold Turkey' which is included in The Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Museum, Ohio's list of Psychedelic Classics. Guitarist and vocalist Peter Miller joined the Offbeats in the late 50's but was lured away to join the Peter Jay & The Jaywalkers in 1961 who up until 1965 enjoyed immense popularity in the UK. He then went 'solo' and in 1968 he released the classic 'Cold Turkey'…
